  1. Oh nice post!! :) We're using the same foundation and in the same shade (Revlon) ! ;) Can you please review the Olay face wash? If you have any other Olay products please review them as well, I wanna get some for my mom! :)

    New follower here btw! :) Check out my blog too if you want! :)

  2. Hi Stavroula, thank you for reading - I'll be sure to check out your blog too.

    I will be reviewing the Olay wash - I actually intend to do a "budget items" review in the next few days which will include this, so stay tuned! :-)

  3. Budget items are my thing! ;) My mom won't use any skincare items, unless I buy her something and remind her to use it, so I'm looking for something quite cheap! :) I'm waiting for your budget items review! ;)

  4. I'm so nosy, I love your list!

  5. Hi Grey, thanks for dropping by. :-)

  6. Ooh I'm a fan of the nyx jumbo pencils :) and Paula's choice too, I should try more of her stuff :)

  7. Jade, one thing I love about Paula's Choice is that you can buy samples of pretty much everything. I like a lot of her products - not generally keen on her moisturisers though, this is the first one I've really liked.
