Just like to say 4 weeks today it will be Christmas day!!!!!!! Have you bought your presents yet? Have you written or posted any cards? the answer to these questions for me me is NO , i better get a wiggle on haven’t a clue what to buy people, I have been searching the Internet for inspiration but still have no ideas, why are men/boys harder to buy for than women/girls?
Anyways onto my week, quite an uneventful week really, spent most of it in work lots of overtime, I bought some more yes you guessed nail polishes, I also got two parcels one from Glossy box and one from America from a lovely girl called Amanda who has a nail lacquer business on Esty called Nerdlacquer, a combination of my two favourite things Science fiction and Nail polish pure heaven. Check it out the polishes are fab trust me. Heres a pic of what I received and also someone hitched a ride with them, what a lovely touch.
I am going to swatch these later for my other blog Northern Nails they are very glittery.
Onto my next parcel, I received my November Glossy box this week, after reading everyones negative views I was a bit worried but I needn’t have been below is a review of what I received.
Leopard print Nail Wraps, Arbonne FC5 Hand creme, Monu Recovery balm, Dead Sea Salts, 2 Surge Lutens perfume samples.
These are Nail Rock Nail wraps , I probably wouldn’t go out and buy these as I like to paint my nails but I suppose that is the whole point of Glossybox, I received the Leopard print ones I will try these out on my nails and put a post up on my nail blog Northern Nails. These are meant to stay on your nails for 7 days on nails and 8 weeks on toes and won’t chip or stain the nail no drying time required.
Arbonne FC5 ultra hydrating hand creme, I can’t wait to use this, it smells yummy, it is meant to moisturize your hands leaving them smooth and refreshing.
This next item makes the box worth while on it’s own it retails at £16.95 full size and I got a full size one. It is meant to provide immediate relief to all skin types especially sensitive or stressed, I have very sensitive skin so i am intrigued by this statement watch out for another review after I have used it.
Dead Sea Spa Magik, dead sea salts, 2011 Beauty awards winner is a natural exfoliant that relieves dry skin, I will be using these as my pedicure routine as i am prone to dry skin on my toes, another review when I have tried them.
Last but not least
Suttens Lutens : L’eau serge lutens and Vitriol d’Oeillet , I love getting perfume samples , i don’t go in to shops very often and the last thing I do is ask for samples and as most perfumes I smell make me sneeze it is great to be able to try them in my home, anyways saying that the Vitriol d’Oeillet was very strong too strong for me but the L’eau Serge Lutens was lovely and subtle both of theses scents are unisex.
Thats my week done time for a restful Sunday before another week of work and fun!
