Clinique: A Glamour mission

Hello lovely readers,

For some reason, i failed to even notice this months Glamour mag in the supermarket. I only tend to get it if there is a decent giveaway on the cover.
Well....after reading this blog post from the brilliant Alice, last Sunday afternoon i decided i needed all of the lovely giveaways.

It has taken me all week and 6 different shops but i now have 8 out of the 10.

For the 10 year Anniversary of Glamour mag they have teamed up with Clinique.
Here is what they are giving away in the April issue:
Take the Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes and Lips
Superbalm Moisturising Gloss in Grapefruit
7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-off Formula
All About Eyes
High Impact Mascara in Black
High Impact Lip Colour SPF15
Liquid Facial Soap Mild
Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion
Long Last Glosswear SPF15 in airkiss

I decided not to get the lipstick because i dont tend to wear lippies. And i already have the facial wash in full size and trial size from my ebay swag which i posted about last week.

And for £2.00 for the magazine i think this is the best giveaway i have seen for a long time.
I use clinique alot and have used all of the items before in the past. The All about eyes really is incerdible. I think that was £16.00 well spent in my opinion. All the items together are worth around £80.00 according to the magazine.

Well thanks for reading and if you are after these lovelies too then i wish you good luck on your Glamour mission. Now i just need to decide what to do with the 5 mags i have left. 3 have been left for work pals to read so i think i will dish these out to family members.

Here are pictures.

A little shopping blog..and a Marc Jacobs surprise

Hello lovely readers.
Ive been sick, i still am poorly, but im alot better than i was.

Its started wednesday evening..but before i pap on about that..
I got a new Blackberry.
Ive had one before and i didnt like it as i couldnt connect to the internet at the time and it was just meh!
Well im up and running with this new one and im loving her.

So i went to the Trafford Centre on Wednesday evening with a couple of friends from work. We had a great time and spent hours looking around the shops at all the pretties. We had a nom nom tea at Pizza hut too.

I did purchase a couple of things from Selfridges.
Ohhhhhh yes!!!

M.A.C conditioning lip balm in Petting Pink £11.00

And this lovely too...

Chanel Soliel De bronze in Medium £35.00 Soleil Tan de Chanel in 62 Terra Epice £32.00

The lovely MUA also gave me 2 lovely freebies in trial size.

A little Primark and Boots visit:

Primark |£1.50

Primark £1.50 for set of 2 - i bought 2 sets as i wanted 2 white ones

Primark £2.50 oilcloth wash bag

From boots - £2.49 i think...not quite sure..threw away reciept :)

Boots...erm...£2.99 i think...???
And finally the eBay...
I bid on a couple of items and one of them said "selection of purses Warehouse ect" so i though "at 99p start price why not".

Oh my days when the package arrived one of them was....MARC JACOBS!!!
It's genuine. Ive checked it and compared it and its 100% genuine. I admit its is used and a little worn on the front locks but its still lovely.
Why would someone sell this! The actual end price after bidding was £11.33 but out of that i got 1 super cute beige purse and 3 leather purses one of which is MJ!

The other winning bid was a Clinique make up set whic is really nice.
Oasis "escape" collection - leather and just very lovely. Like a travel wallet i think

I guessing the seller got this from Primark as i looks like my barrell bag from there

This is leather - no lable inside but im going to guess at either Oasis or Debenhams

Lovely lovely lovely

I got sick wednesday night and didnt get out of bed for 2 days. I think i may have caught tonsilitus but i cant be sure. I didnt go to my Dr's. I just thought i would be better off sleeping it off and staying put. Im still coughing alot but i cant walk about now without wanting to faint and keel over.
Its a lovely sunny Sunday outside now so i think i will sign off and nip to the supermarket for a salad and a few other things.
Thanks for reading
Take Care
