e.l.f Haul - With Giveaway

e.l.f just celebrated their 10th birthday and let us celebrate with them by having a massive 51% sale on EVERYTHING. Were you lucky enough to take advantage of this offer?

I was previously an e.l.f virgin, but hearing many a good thing about throughout the blogosphere made it impossible to pass this up! I'd admired their really positive, informative and interactive social media posts for a while now, so it was high time that I bought in. 

Initially, I wanted to get one of their highly praised brush sets, but alas, they were sold out :( you beauts beat me to it! Never mind, I got a lot of other bits and pieces. 

After playing around with these, I can safely say quite a few of these are going to become my staples.

Well seeing as e.l.f stands for eyes. lips. face it is only apt that I set my post in the same layout. I'm looking forward to do some in-depth posts in the future on these products.


For me, during the summer months, I like to stay bare faced but always have my eyes done. A lashing of mascara and a blend of shadows to match my mood, just to keep me looking alive. 


I can't believe I only bought one lip product! There was just so much to choose from, I did have the nourishing lipstick in my basket, but when I went to purchase it someone had snapped up my shade! 

So, my solitary product is Plumping Lip Glaze - Plum Pout.


When the sunkissed look has faded, I need help. My porcelain pale skin needs perking up and I'm really excited about the goodies I've got from e.l.f especially the HD Mattifying Cream Foundation. Mattifying is really important to me as my contraception makes me look like I have fallen asleep in a bag of chips, occasionally.


I picked up a couple goodies for my gorgeous fans on Facebook and Twitter - a Brightening Eye Colour - Noveau Neutrals.

Twitter: Follow and RT here!
Facebook: Like both the page and competition post here!
Two winners will be chosen one from Facebook, one from Twitter. Good luck all.

The best part of all this was the price! Even without the sale, e.l.f prices are a really fantastic for the quality. Cannot wait to add to my collection. Did you manage to scoop up any bargains on time?

Forgive Me! Plus Bag Giveaway!

Please forgive my lack of posts. I have been swept away in the summer busyness where you have no spare time, but in reality, you haven't really done anything. Work, sunshine and Netflix have stole me away. Not to mention, I have finally got around to watching Game Of Thrones (only on Season 3, no spoilers please) so between that and Orange Is The New Black I have completely neglected my blog.

I've taken to knitting and gradually improving my skills, I'm really enjoying taking one of my projects over to a local park and catching some rays. As I am typing, I realise I have three bags beside me that I have made, g-g-g-g-giveaway time! To think, I wasn't even going to mention this mellow, new hobby of mine. 

These are fairly simple, cute, little cross-body bags that I made, inspired by a pattern found in one of my mum's magazines. One winner will be selected to win the bag of their choice. 

Choice of colour: Blue/Black, Cream/Green and Blue/Lime

I have actually drafted up the next few posts, so no more radio silence, I promise. Posts to look forward to include E.L.F haul with a small giveaway and I am currently working on a collaborative giveaway, awesome stuff.

Open to UK entrants only.
