Boudoir Privé October Box

My Boudoir Privé post is a little late this time as I wasn't in the house when my box was delivered and had to wait another week for them to re-deliver it. I received two boxes this month, I'm not sure if it was through my error or the company's, but the other box made a lovely gift for my boyfriend's mum.







Favourites:
I have a couple of favourites in this box! Firstly I absolutely love the eyeliner pen. Compared to my Boujoir 'felt tip' liner pen, this one is much thinner, which appeals to me more. It's also not too pricey at £12. I've used it today and it went on perfectly first time - very happy! I also really love the Memo Paris perfume tester that I received. The 'Les Echappees' scent is really sweet and feminine, which is the sort of perfume I tend to go for!









Other items:
The body butter is lovely, it is easy to rub in and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, as opposed to greasy. I have so many different body butters, so this is another one to add to the collection. God knows how I'll get through them all!


I'm not really a huge fan of face masks, so the Cetuem illuminating mask didn't really get me excited. I tried it out today and didn't feel a huge benefit after washing it off, however if it does clear up my skin a bit, it'll be my new best friend. I do like the cream though! It's not too heavy or greasy and leaves your skin feeling smooth.


Now I was going to give the Leonor Greyl a bad review, but I'm still unsure about it. I put it on for 5-10 minutes before washing my hair, like the leaflet told me to, but instead of looking nourished and healthier when it came to drying my hair, my hair simply looked greasy. It was so bad that I had to go back and wash my it again - which frustrated me to the max. This time it turned out fine, so I'm wondered whether I used too much of the product, or if I didn't wash it all out or that it perhaps just doesn't suit my hair. I'm going to give it another go in the next few days incase it was my mistake and not the product.



Last but not least is the Rose Salve from Rose & Co. I'm not really into rose scented products, however that aside the salve is lovely. It's apparently multi-purpose so you can use it to tame your brows, gloss your cheeks or apply it to dry skin, as well as to chapped lips. I think I will definitely use mine as a lip balm, however I did put a small amount on each cheek before applying my blusher and it added a lovely light-reflecting shimmer to them.


I am not a beauty expert, these are simply my opinions on this month's BP box. I have to say that the box has impressed me again this month, however next month I am going to a Feel Unique box, purely just to give it a try. I can't really justify subscribing to more than one box at a time - if I could I would - trust me! I can definitely see myself subscribing to BP again in the future.

A night to remember...

Here are a few pictures from my 21st Birthday party which I shared with three of my best friends, Emily, Sarah and Kate. I had an amazing time and pretty much ended up dancing the night away. I'm also very proud as I managed to keep my heels on for most of the night - massive achievement for me there. Although I had quite a few Cosmopolitans I managed to stay sober enough so that I could remember the whole night, which is just what I wanted!
There were so many cameras pointing at us, that we didn't know which way to look! 

Emily, Sarah, Kate and I - The Birthday Girls!

Smiley Smiley.

A few things I've got my eye on...





£17.99 Ark, Love this print, and it has an exposed zip keeping on trend.
£110 Lipsy VIP Collection - simply can't justify the money on this dress, as I don't have any special occasions coming up! It's such a dream dress though, I love the sequin detail and girlyness of it.


I love the Models Own polishes I bought and think I may be treating myself to this gorgeous bubblegum colour soon! £5 each. I also really want to buy Disco Mix and Foxy Fuchsia, any other suggestions?





I've wanted a velvet dress ever since they made a reappearance in high street stores. They remind me of when I was little I used to have a dark green velvet dress which I loved so much. I can remember wearing it to a school dance party when I was 6. This dress however is a little more sophisticated and suited to a now 21 year old! I love the glitter spot detail and it looks like the perfect fit for me. £46 from Topshop. 

***I am currently on the hunt for a leather jacket without a hood! Where's best to get one from? Suggestions please***

Also look out for the giveaway I will be running shortly on this blog + twitter!

She's so lucky

Apologies for the lack of posting, I have been a very busy-bee! I am now back at University and it's looking like my third (and final!) year is going to be a lot harder than I expected. I am in a new, better frame of mind about University though and I am going to work hard and be as organised as possible to ensure that I do my very best! Now onto the actual post...

I have had a spot of luck recently and have ended up winning two prizes, which obviously I was extremely happy about as I haven't won anything in a long while.

The first was some gorgeous soaps from Nature's Finest Cosmetics which I won from taking part in a giveaway  on a blog called Scarlett London. The soaps are 'Handmade with essential oils' and smell divine. I particularly loved the Gypsy Rose bath tulip that I also won (however used before I took a photo of it - damn!) It was like a bath bomb, which fizzed away in my relaxing bubbly bath and left the petals floating on the top. 

The soaps shown above are £2.50 for 100grams and are available in a range of colours and scents.  
For more information or to buy some gorgeous handmade, natural soaps from Nature's Finest Cosmetics, visit their website by clicking here. 
Thank you to Scarlett & Nature's Finest Cosmetics for my lovely prizes.

The second prize that I won, just the other day, was a 2GB 4th Generation iPod shuffle. After purchasing my birthday dress in Lipsy on Saturday I was given a 'golden ticket' which had a code on that you had to type in on their Facebook page. I was so excited to have won a prize, you ought to have seen my beaming smile. I do already have an iPod (nano) so I am not quite sure what to do with the shuffle yet, but I am still pleased to have won a prize, so thank you Lipsy!



Lets hope I stay lucky! xo
