Long before I became a 'blogger' I would read other beauty blogs and would especially love any haul or birthday/christmas treat related post. This is because I am a shopaholic and a tad nosy so here is mine. Photo heavy, here are just a few of the lovely things I have received this christmas.
|Illamasqua blush Excite - A true dolly peach which is just gorgeous!|
|Light swatch of Excite - Illamasqua|
|Benefit Girl Meets Pearl over Illamasqua Excite (photo not being kind creates a beautiful subltle glow)|
|Benefit Girl meets pearl...a more workable version of Highbeam has more slide to it than it's predecessor but the same beautiful pink pearl highlight effect|
|Philosophy Warm and Toasty - Espresso , buttered rum and cocoa.....erm no I will not get out of the bath yet!|
|The Urban Decay New York Palette - yes it's gimmicky, yes it's larger than need be but come on it lights up! Gorgeous especially 'loaded' also get 2 24/7's and a mini PP...perfect!|
|Front Cover Hot rods - Imagine Urban Decay 24/7's with a smudger on the end and easier to sharpen...im in love|
|Cult Classic Orgasm, Pillow talk and sex machine in the 'love set'|
|Swatch of Front Cover Hot Rods|
|Molten brown yummies - My faves being Eucalyptus and Gingerly (a scent I already have in the sparkling eau de toilette. It makes you feel instantly warm and cosy)|
To top all of these wonderful treats off I also received a new cream coat with black piping detail, a gorgeous chiffon pink scarf, a Suzy Smith 'grown up' lady bag, Pj's Chocolates, Bangles, CD's, Belle de Opium + Jean Paul Gaultier Madame perfume (my amy perfume as my boy calls it) and a partridge in a pear treeeeee. Thank you santa!
I also got so many fabulous books which deserve a whole new post just for them. I have literally 10 pictures of inspiration I need to recreate, my favourite being a turquoise Sophia Loren look from 1963 which oozes glamour.
Wishing you all a very very happy and prosperous new year filled with all the love and laughter you desire....2011 will be a good year I can just feel it!
