Clinique, Body Shop & a girly book...

Happy Saturday shopping, darlings!

So I finally got my hands on the yummy Clinique bonus gift at House of Fraser!

I  have to say I am most excited about the makeup bits
as I already own two of the skincare items.

The Shimmering Stripes Powder Blusher in Almond Blossom (comes with a cute brush too!) is divine. It gives me the most gorgous healthy bronzed glow!

♥ The High Impact Curling Mascara looks interesting... I haven't tried it yet, but it's definitely going on first thing tomorrow morning.

Long Last Glosswear in Bonfire is a very pretty deep red.


In order to get the free gift, I had to buy two or more Clinque skincare or makeup items. It was the last day of the offer, and unfortunately the shelves were a bit empty (baaaaad House of Fraser!), so Turnaround Serum was sold out :(

Had to do some quick thinking, and instead went with one of the items on my wishlist and one sensible back up...

I already have a big bottle of the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, but it is almost empty and instead of trying a new moisturizer, I decided to get a back-up as I am really happy with my Dramatically Different. It makes my face super smooth and non-greasy :)

I also went to Body Shop...

The Body Shop Shimmer Cube in 06. Gorgeous neutral eyeshadow palette.

Finally I stumbled across a book with loads of good tips and pretty pictures in it...

Coleen's Real Style

I have always found Coleen pretty, and I adore her outfits!

I haven't actually read the book yet (only just got home 2 hours ago), but on browsing through it
it looks like it's filled with great tips and inspirational pictures - not bad for £1.99 :D
