Lucky Dip Club | September 2015

Over the last year I have become tired of beauty subscription boxes - I found that I was receiving the same items over and over again.  I have enough mascara to see me through the next few years!  So I have been looking elsewhere for something a little bit different and I discovered the Lucky Dip Club.

A box of super cute accessories and handmade items that includes a personalised item each month seems right up my street. 

I really enjoy having subscription boxes delivered to work, since I am the post lady, I'm able to nab all my parcels as they arrive and it really brightens up a dull day when something arrives that I've completely forgotten about.

So imagine my joy when this month's cutie box arrived on my desk just in time for my birthday!


Lifestyle | Must Watch 80'S Movies - NETFLIX Edition

What's better than curling up on the sofa at this time of year with a GIANT cuppa tea or hot chocolate and indulging in some feel good movies?
Nothing, that's what!
Well actually, you could invite the girls round and all watch a bit of cheese together, that's pretty fun too.
I am a real 80's child, I love big hair, lairy clothing and good whack of (Jon) Bon Jovi thrown in for a laugh.
When I get a night to myself or with the girls there is nothing I love more than indulging in a bit of cheese from the 80's and today I thought I'd share some of my favourite 80's movies with you.  These are all currently available on NETFLIX too if you felt the need to have a full in depth marathon and hide for a few hours.
So stick your hair in a side ponytail, stock up on sherbet dips and pour yourself a babysham things are about to get cheesy.

Beauty | Seventeen Define & Conquer Contour Kit

I won't lie, contouring has always been a bit scary for me, I'm a super pale girl.  I wear ALL the pale foundations with a bit of bright blush and I'm good to go but when this SEVENTEEN Define & Conquer Contour Kit* popped through my door I couldn't help but be intrigued.

Lifestyle | It's Officially Autumn, Really!

Apparently 23rd September marks the official start to Autumn.  Or Fall, if you're from further afield.
And I cannot contain my joy! 

Beauty | Clarins GWP Offer at House of Fraser

If you read my post on the recent event running at House of Fraser (here) you'll see they have some amazing deals on at the moment.  The one deal that I was super excited to take advantage of had to be from Clarins.
As well as being included in the #BeautyConfidential event where you get £10 off one of your favourite items when you buy one of their favourites; Clarins are also giving away one of their best gift with purchase offers I have seen in a long time.
Until 19th September when you purchase two or more Clarins products (one of which must be skincare), you’ll receive an amazing trio of Clarins products as a GWP. 
I'm usually all about the cosmetics but after a quick demonstration of the new Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch* I instantly snapped it up.  Actually, that's a lie, I snapped up TWO!
And with that, I then was eligible for the GWP.  Ohh happy days.  It's so wonderful I couldn't not share it with you all.

Food | Meal Planning For A Busy Lifestyle

My life is a bit mental.  As I previously mentioned, I work both full time and part time.  I get one day off a week.  I live with my partner, have 2 dogs, spend time with friends and try to stay as healthy as I can so I find the only way to function properly is to plan my time.

Plan Plan Plan.

Weekly meal planning is one way I find things work for us.  If we didn't plan, I'm pretty damn sure I would spend a ton on take-aways as I tend to be really tired and lazy when I get home from work at 6pm.
