A super duper quick post amidst the LFW mayhem to show you the things which I have been loving using this week!
Firstly, for those of you who follow me on Twitter and went to the Monica Vinader Sample Sale – how amazing was it!? Rings which usually cost over £100 going for £20, friendship bracelets from £10.. oh my gosh. Words can’t explain. The bracelet in the picture is one of their Diamond Pave Bracelets which retail at £305 – I paid £50 for it and I love it! But will still be saving for special occasions. I also couldn’t resist buying a Fiji Friendship bracelet (usually £115) that already had something engraved on it, making it a bargain at £10. Ok, so my bracelet reads ‘Peace, Ariya, Love’ but it was TEN POUNDS! The non engraved versions were £25.
If you missed the sample sale, be sure you follow me on twitter @FashionMumblr and keep an eye on my Upcoming Sample Sales page to find out about the next one!
Skincare wise, I recently read that the Maybelline baby Skin is on parr with Benefit’s Porefessional – and although I’ve only tried samples of the Porefessional, I am certainly loving this budget version, review to come soon!
My lips have been a little dry recently, so I’ve been adding colour and care with Origin’s Drink Up quenching lip balm which also has a slight minty flavour when you apply it.
I also revealed in the Post Spending Ban Beauty Haul post that I had splurged on Nars and Bobbi Brown brushes recently, but I truly feel that the investment has paid off, as I seem to have finally found a foundation that suits my skin type. If you are having any troubles with your skin, I highly recommend a visit to a Nars counter, as the Make Up Artists offer honest recommendations, (the fab lady I saw even recommended some non-Nars products that would help me!).
What are you loving this week? Happy LFW!
