Little updates

It's been a while since my last little updates and I haven't done anything all that amazing.  I wanted to do a little updates soon though because I have some new blog mentions I want to give - coming up at the end of the post.

First up, a freebie body products haul.  These all came from Christmas gift sets - my mum decided she wouldn't use them so bagged them up and gave them to me - bonus!

A little while ago now I went into Clintons and saw they had a sale on Yankee candles - I love the smell of Yankees but they're really expensive usually so I haven't got that many.  Clintons had these two fragrances half price for about £9 so I decided to indulge in them both as they look and smell gorge.  

Mango peach salsa

Ocean blossom - this one's on the windowsill in the loo

Here's mango peach salsa settling in with some of my other candles on my living room coffee table 

Large yankees also now come in a tumbler as opposed to the jars which I prefer - I've only got one of those so far which you can see here in my hallway - it's strawberry buttercream

The boyf and I put on some temporary his and hers skull tattoos that came free with something

I thought I might dye my hair and realised how many boxes of hair colour I have that I've not used.  As you can see Casting is my fave.  

I tried chesnut honey but it didn't make much difference to my hair at all as my hair is more mid brown that light brown.  Hair colour fail.

Possibly one of the most random things I've ever put on the blog.... I got some new windows in my house.  We just replaced the oldest ones which were looking tired or letting too much cold in in the winter

 My friend went to visit his brother in America and be brought these back for me

Aren't they pretty?  Some of the beautiful people buying things from my blogsale have either found these or individually wrapped jelly beans in their packages =)

And finally I got my hands on these Sleek pout paints - these will be featuring in lots of upcoming posts I'm sure.  I think I've got a range of the shades to be able to mix up all sorts of colours

That's all for now, onto the blog lovin'

Please check out these lovely blogs I've recently discovered....

Happy Sunday everyone xx
