As fresh as Eau Daisy

Hello Lovelies,
Its been a while.
Firstly my PC decided to eat up all the virus's in the whole of the internet and it took me an age to wipe the computer to nothing and rebuild, and secondly i have been painting my kitchen from tired yellow to fresh brilliant white. Its not finished yet but another couple of days and i will be there.

So that explains the absence from my im really sorry.

Well i thought i would write up a little post about some of the things i have picked up in the last couple of weeks.
I have been lusting after Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so Fresh for a while now but i just havent had the money to get it since Christmas.

The company i work for has a very large staff canteen/kitchen and they select sellers to come in and sell their stuff to the staff. There are over 800 people where i work so its very lucrative for the different sellers.
We have about 8 or 9 different ones each month so theres always something exciting to want/need/buy.

Frangrance direct came to work yesterday. So i picked up the Daisy. I was going to spend £51.99 on the 125ml as they let you pay on payday but i though that maybe i could get the same size bottle with a possible gift with purchase at another shop. I went for the 20ml box set with a 15ml refil and funnel for £24.99.
I love this perfume. I still do like the original scent but this one is a little sweeter. And the dinky bottle is adorable.

 Also this week we had a lady who is an independant seller and she was selling bag's, make up and jewellery. Some of the make up was high end like Stila Urban Decay, YSL, and Dior.

Gorgeous items but lots of pennies which i dont have till 28th, and there was a particular brand that was very questionable in its authenticity if you know what i mean.
It begins with M.
I asked her how she had managed to get hold of the stock to be able to sell it so cheap. She said it was stock that was no longer within a collention (?) and i was like O_O with my eyes as i know this certain brand only retails in large dept store's and this particular collection sold out so why would they get rid of stock at a lower price to sell to this lady?
I stayed away from that range as it looked so plastic and FAKE! She was nice about my questions but i totally didnt believe her  :)
I just want to point out that i didnt say it meanly to her i was just curious as i knew it wasnt real. The rest of her stuff was authentic.
There was a box at the front of her stall with a few bits of make up in it and had price stickers from £5.00 to £10.00. I picked up a two faced lip balm without a sticker and asked her how much it was. She said that everything in the box was £1.00.

Well you can guess what i did.......yes i bought lots.
Here is what i picked up for a £1.00 each:

Hard Candy Midnight snack kit gloss a levres. Root Beer,  Raspberry Sorbet,  Chocolate Pie and Whipped Cream and Strawberries. Love love love these and they taste like they smell.

Bourjois in 55 Bleu Myosotis

Two Faced lip balm in grapefruit - this also tastes yummy and is super conditioning

Two Faced shimmer veils in Angel Hair

Bourjois Shimmering Shine eyeshadow in 31 Molecule D'or

Bourjois eyeshadow set in 11 Miss Spirit

Bourjois eyeshadow in 16 Crazy Baby

Benefit Cheek Rouge in  Coy. I need to find a pot for this as the above is a refil.

I also picked up the gorgeous blingy cap for £12.00.
Loves it.
Im looking forward to wearing it when summer finally gets here.

And finally this gorgeous bracelet. I got it from ASDA and it was only £3.00. I love the colours when the light hits it.
Thanks for reading.
