Everything's coming up Milhouse!

Oh my goodness - has it been that long since I posted? Well, I'm here now. And what a week I've had! First of all, in that picture above you can see a gorgeous little gift haul I won from The Lip Print in one of her Random Acts Of Kindness. What a lovely thing to do - aren't beauty bloggers a nice lot? Noodle Arms rushed off with the nail polishes and then came back and tried to dibs them, but I haven't even had a chance to play yet, so she can just BACK OFF, HONKY CAT, as Marge Simpson would say.

But wait - there's more!

My makeup BFF J has been cleaning out her own stash and brought in some goodies to give away - I pounced on these immediately. The pigments are NYX ones, which I've never tried, but I saw some swatches of a few colours on Beauty Heaven last night and they look amazing. I'm excited to try these - I don't know why she is getting rid of them (and I'm not going to ask).

Still more!  My lovely online BPAL enabler Louise had some more sales going on earlier in the week, so I snatched up a few bottles and as usual she sent them along with a load of other goodies - half a dozen Imps (perfume samples), some lollies, a room spray, some Lush soap I never even had a chance to sniff before Noodles made off with it.

And then there were two packages from Beauty Heaven, which were completely unexpected. One was a trio of products to trial for them (I didn't take a picture because I don't know if I am allowed to show them or talk about them yet) and the other was a prize!

How bling is all that? The jars are body cream and sugar scrub. Fancy!

But the best news of all this week is that I have a two month reprieve from the job I loathe thanks to Makeup BFF J who got me in to replace her while she goes off and does whatever it is she does. And even better, not only do I escape, it's two levels higher than my current job so I also get a payrise! Honestly, what a great week. The only downside is that I didn't win the lottery, and if it was ever going to happen, this would have been the week for it, apparently.


  1. I dibs the perfume.....if you don't want it... that was the one my mum loved in Melbourne!

  2. I'm glad you liked your prize! That JC perfume bottle is really something isn't it - like a bling-y artifact ♥

  3. Hands off the perfume, J - I kind of like it. I know, I know, it's totally not my thing. You can have the body cream and sugar scrub though - I will never use them.

    Stef, that bottle is blinging all over the place. I feel like Posh Spice. ;-)

  4. I missed your entries

  5. Awww, I'm back now Lisa. :-)

  6. Great haul! I love the title of this post LOL
