Love Sundays...

Hello lovelies,

I went to a Halloween party last night thrown by my brother and his girlfriend. 
My costume was Deadly Dorothy ( but a few guests thought i was Malice in Horrorland....did my huge red glittery shoes not give them a clue? guess not). My wig didnt stay on for long. Darn itchy scratchy thing.
I had such a great time and met a couple of new people.
One of my brothers friends Paul told me that he was interested in the paranormal and was in a group who conducted things conected with Paranormal activity and goings on. They arent taking any new members at the moment (pah!) but i really enjoyed meeting him and getting to know what he does. A really nice guy.

I had a little drinkie and enjoyed chatting and seeing friends i hadnt seen in a while.
Im having a lazy Sunday today, Husband is watching the NFL later and im catching up with blogs i read and youtubes vids that i subscribe to.

Painted my nails a lovely purple colour this morning too. The varnish is out of a set i bought from Boots from the company Frontcover. The name of the colour is deep purple. It comes out more blue in the picture but is in fact a nice metalic purple blue.

Some pictures of last nights party below:

Thanks for reading.

Happy Halloween

Hello again,

So i mentioned that i would take some pictures of the SATC 2 book. It doesnt stand up very well on its on and i need 2 hands to focus my camera without flash so ive done as best i can.
Also the new issue of Marie Clare is out....with another freebie.
This month they are giving away a bangle in 3 colours by a company called Made. They have clear, green and purple.

The idea behind this is that all goods are sourced and made for recycled item.
You can view the website here:

Laura Bailey has been heading up a campaign for them and they do have so many really nice items for sale.

So onto the pictures:
If you are a fan of the series and the films you need to buy this book.

Happy Happy Joy Joy

Whats better than a freebie?

Two freebies.
This months Marie Clare are giving away a nail varnish in 2 lovely colours. They are from a company called Ciate and the varnishes are called "paint pots".
The colour i chose (or chose me) is called Dangerous Affair. Its 13.5 ml which is larger than normal size varnishes i usually buy.
I cant tell you what the other colour that they are giving away is because ASDA only had the one shade left. The mag costs £3.50 and i think that its worth buying just for the freebie alone. InStyle are also offering 25% off from orders on the website I just noticed on the picture below..white chocolate varnish remover...OMG!

The other happy happy joy joy is a nail and hand cream from L'Occitaine which comes in 30ml size.
This comes on the cover of InStyle mag. Which also have the darling Ginnifer Goodwin on the cover.

There are 3 choices available: Fleur Cherie (orange blossom and neroli) Original scent (just erm lotiony smell) and Cherry Blossom (they didnt have this choice either so i will pick this up from WH Smiths at the weekend. I opted for Fleur Cherie as i have had original before and thought the cherie was the best out of the two.
The mag costs £3.somethingorother which again is worth it for the gift. I think these lotions retail in the region of £10.00 from boots. Not sure on this one.
Will just ask Mr Google.......

Mr Google says the scents are new and not available in the shops yet but 150ml original retails at £16.50 and travel size 30ml retails at £7.00. So for £3.bipdebop you get a great read and lovely soft hands, BRILLIANT!

Husband bought me a lovely little book from the restaurant at work (they have retailers come in and sell their wares on certain days in the month - today was The Book People).
He picked up The Hummingbird Bakery book for me for £5.00. Loves him.
Am looking forward to relaxing with a hot cup of tea and flicking through this dreaming that i am the perfect wife who bakes. Rather than the couchpotato who reads recipe books for fun.

And finally i have saved the best for last.

SATC 2 book.

The film was Meh! but the book is delicious. It is currently selling for £10.00 in ASDA.
I have all 3 of these books now and the third didnt disappoint.
While typing this the light has faded so i will take more shots of the pages tomorrow so you can see just what im talking about. For now below is a little taster.

Thanks for reading and happy happy joy joy's
