Advice please - what to ask for from USA?


Hello my lovelies - just looking for a cheeky bit of advice this morning!

My Mum and Brother are going to the US next week and are offering to pick me up anything that I want - hooray!  I've made a list but am wondering if I've left out anything obviously wonderful that you guys would ask for if you were me.

This is the list so far of what I'm going to ask for.

Urban Decay Naked pallette

Urban Decay eye primer potion in new shade Eden

Too faced pallette in naked eye soft and sexy shadow collection

L'Oreal voluminious dramatic volume building mascara (because lollipop26 recommends it!)

Also, these are items I recently got from the US in a swap, so that's why they're not on my list.

Bumpits

Mint Julep face mask

Crest Whitestrips

Crest advanced white vivid toothpaste (love this so may ask for another)

Seche Vite top coat

Let me know of any fab recommendations if you don't mind!

I'm back after surviving hen do and bridal shower shenanigans!

If anyone noticed I'd dissappeared lately, it's because I've been arranging my best friend's bridal shower and hen do.  It engulfed my life, literally!  It all went down last weekend and rather well too even if I say so myself, so I'm back to my usual little world of twitter, blogging, facebook, ebay, asos and general online time wasting =)

When planning the hen do and bridal shower, I found a distinct lack of inspiration online.  I thought I'd find loads of websites and blog entries etc with tips and plans all laid out for me, but sadly it was mostly companies trying to sell you a weekend away package or a set of ten glow-in-the-dark, L-plate clad, willy dangling, hot pink deely boppers.  Not very helpful. 

So I had to put my own little brain into gear as well as getting some inspiration from hen do photos on facebook and blogs that I follow, and now it's all over I've decided to blog about the lot of it in the hope of helpling some other stressed out little Chiefy B in the future.  Chiefy B is the name I've adopted by the way, "Matron of honour" sounds ancient and rather un-glam!

Here's a couple of pics to give you a flavour of what's to come =)
