September Buys & a Nice Surprise!



I was chatting to Lucy on Twitter () - she did my wedding make up many moons ago (8 years ago!) and she used to sell Jane Iredale make up. She pointed me in the direction of a local supplier and then asked if I'd like her to add what I was looking for onto her order.  I'm a huge fan of Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain.  I first received it in a Joliebox - simply love it!  You can see Lucy's website here where you can book in for bridal makeup, special occasion make up and make up lessons.


I found that I was running low on both my favourite foundations so popped into Harvey Nichols to pick some Maestro Fusion Make Up SPF15 (shade 4) up.  Stuart, the very helpful and friendly assistant also gave me some Luminous Silk samples (shade 4.5), a Regenessence Youth Regenerator Serum sample (3ml) and a sample vial (1.5ml) of the latest Armani Prive perfume Myrrhe Imperiale - EDP Intense - with notes of myrrh and benzoin - a spicy oriential with incense, musk, smokey and milky vanilla notes - gorgeous! (100ml retails at gulp £190).

A friend at work, Ann is just back from holidays in Spain yesterday and gave me this little bag....


I was so excited!



I've been wanting to try the Sephora Body Wash capsules like...forever!  There was also four little bath oil shapes.  Super pleased!

Have you treated yourself to anything this month?

    1. :) Luminous silk has a bit more coverage than Maestro and you can build it up but it's not as thick/cakey as Estee Lauder double wear (in my opinion!) x
