Lipstick and Bubbles
I’m totally addicted to getting the best bargains or freebies, is it just me or do thing look/taste/smell better when they’re free? Even if it isn’t something you personally want or you’re going to use it’s always nice to give it to someone else (and you don’t even have to tell them it was free!). I’ve picked up quite a few freebies this week so I thought I’d start a weekly ‘Freebie Friday’ tag so you could go and pick up your weekly freebies.
O2 Moments is one of the best apps I have on my phone, constantly giving O2 customers ‘no purchase necessary’ freebies and unbeatable deals. They update these regularly usually having 1-2 freebies a week and as much as 50% off at stores, restaurants and hotels, they also hold regular competitions (this week is ‘Win tickets and a meet and greet with Michael Buble’ and ‘Win a luxury case of wine’ with Vigin Wines). I’m not sure whether it’s the good feeling of Christmas but they’ve got some great deals this week.
I picked up a free demister chamois from Halfords (perfect as Milo seems to have ‘claimed’ my last one) along with a free roll of ‘Be More Dog’ wrapping paper from o2. How can you not love a cat pulling a sleigh (see picture above). There’s also free chocolate coins at WHSmith.
I picked up this Bakers dog food bowl when I brought a pack of food in Iceland, as most of you know I’ve recently got a French Bulldog called Milo and it’s becoming a pain having to bring him, along with his bed, food, bowls and toys from home to work and back again each day so I’ve started buying another of everything so it’s just Milo we have to carry! This bowl now sits nicely in the office. Even if you’ve got enough bowls it’s always nice to have a spare in the cupboard for when it’s needed. I’m not sure whether this deal is in all Iceland stores but it’s definitely worth popping to your local to have a check anyway.
We’re fast approaching Christmas, the days seem to keep whizzing past, it’s hard to believe we’re just 21 days from Christmas and 28 days away from 2015! I’m usually really organised but this year I’m the complete opposite. After trying to figure out what to get everyone for Christmas and looking through various gift guides I thought I would write a ‘for her’ list of my own for #Blogmas.
My family almost always end up getting something from Body Shop (www.thebodyshop.co.uk) with their Christmas or Birthday presents as it’s such a ‘loved by all’ brand. They have the perfect gift for almost every generation especially their hand creams are always a winner for my Mother or Grandma. I brought this one for myself yesterday and it really does smell good enough to eat!
Hope this helps with your Christmas Shopping!
I love December, I love Christmas and I love any excuse to add a bit of sparkle to my daily make-up routine, especially my nails. I’d seen Loreal’s ‘Gold Leaf’ Top Coat advertised in one of my monthly magazine subscriptions and knew I had to have it. That was until BarryM brought out their Aquarium Range which included ‘Treasure Chest’ an identical polish for half the price so I ended up buying two polishes from the Aquarium Range for the same price the ‘Gold Leaf’ would have been, such a good buy. I’m yet to complete my aquarium collection but I’m sure it won’t be long (hint hint Santa).
Not a very good photo of this but it’s a fleece headband from Jack Wills. I’ve got a really fluffy one but I wanted something a bit more take for walks around the village. This was £10 reduced from £16, I’ve not gotten round to wearing it yet.
My last two purchases are also from Cat Kidson, I went looking for Christmas presents and ended up getting a Handbag and Makeup bag for myself, my everyday handbag is too big really and I keep filling it with stuff I don’t need so I thought I’d challenge myself and buy a smaller one. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now and it’s definitely a challenge.
