Magazine Goodies


Magazine GoodiesI love when magazines include a little goodie in their issue. Who doesn't? I generally buy the magazine anyway so it's always a bonus to get a little treat with it. This month is particularly good!

Marie Claire have included a little pouch with three products from one of my favourite brands: Aromatherapy Associates (check out my post on their fabulous bath oils!!). The samples included in the magazine are a Hydrating Face Mask, Cleanser and Moisturiser. They are all rose scented, which I love. I have been wanting to try AA skincare for a while now so this is an great opportunity.

Next up another fabulous item in this months In Style:  a full sized Nails Inc. nail polish in the colour Sao Paulo Streets (exclusive for In Style). It looks very similar to one of my favourites from Nails Inc. Porchester Square. I love their polishes and will definitely be using this one lots!

Lastly there is a sample of Benefit Porefessional in this months issue of Elle. If you were thinking of buying this primer but would like to try it first without having to spend all that money, this is your chance! I really like this primer and use it when I know I will be photographed because it really makes my pores disappear.

Our Winter / Christmas Nail Polish Picks

Winter & Christmas Nail PolishesI have admitted it before, I have a slight problem when it comes to nail polish, I just can't stop buying it! I've had a look through my little (or some might say ridiculously big) polish collection and have dug out the ones that will be on my nails through December and especially the festive season.

The polish I wear most at the moment is Rouge Noir from Chanel and the Dior Diva one, which is a gorgeous black with gold and red glitter shot through it. Unfortunately it is a limited edition but they have a dark red one with golden glitter in their Christmas collection this year, also very beautiful. Depending on what I will be wearing on Christmas day (not decided yet) I will probably have the red glitter from Deborah Lipmann or Chanel's Quartz on my nails.

I haven't bought any new ones lately but I have my eye on a few. One of them is Essie's Hors D'evours, a beautiful silver and gold glitter and from the same collection a black glitter Essie's Belugaria. This collection hasn't yet launched in the UK and Ireland but I'm hoping I will be able to get my hands on it soon...

What are your favourite winter / Christmas nail polishes?
