Lets see what 2011 has to offer? This year i plan on buying less products and concentrating on wishlist things rather than buying lots of impulse buys. Well that's the plan anyway. If i stick to it or not is another story?
Hope you are all having a great weekend xx


  1. i love xen tan - definately the best i've tried!

    i did a review on my blog a while back :)

    i've told myself the exact same thing - to not spend money on little, impulse things and rather buy what i actually want! i'm trying it with clothes and cosmetics, hopefully i'll stick to it lol xx

  2. Great 'heroes'! Loved this post!
    I got the Naked palette for Christmas and I love it!


  3. What a great post! :)
    Very informative and helpful!

  4. Great post!! Ive gotten a few new ideas of what I want to buy now! Although I have told myself no impulse buys as well, just necessities... But I know that wont happen! lol!

  5. great post!good products!have a nice week-end!

  6. Fab post - encouraged to see that I too have a few of these, especially delighted to see Pout - I was gutted when they ceased trading and trawl ebay and TKMaxx for any products! Thanks for this. Jan x

  7. I love love love the Elf Warm Bronzer. It's fabulous! & I wish I could get my hands on one of the Naked palettes, it's my birthday soon though. :)

  8. great post and great products too..thanks for sharing hun

  9. I love this post :) there's so many products on here that I need to try out this year and this has just persuaded me even more! x

  10. Great faves :) I really want to try Liz Earle stuff! xx

  11. Love this post :) Where can you get the mint julep mask? I really need to organise my stash and see what I have again. Reading this made me realise I have some of the same products and want to try them again :)

  12. Ooh pink sugar! That's my favourite perfume too. I keep reading good things about the erase paste - it might have to go on my wishlist!

  13. I think the UD Naked Palette was by far my best investment of 2010. I could NOT get away with the Tangle Teezer though, it just didn't work that well on me. Maybe my hair is too thick or something but i wish i hadn't bothered :(

    And can't believe i still haven't tried Mac Soft & Gentle - what is wrong with me?!! You've reminded me to put it on my list - thanks!!


  14. Thanks ladies, Karen i got the mask when i was on holiday in vegas, i dont know if you can get it here. Maybe try ebay hun xx

  15. I have heard so much about the mint julep mask. What does it do exactly??

  16. This year I am definitely trying out the Liz Earle cleanser and the Mint Julep mask - I keep hearing about those EVERYWHERE.

  17. Thanks for sharing! All of them look like great products. I especially like MAC foundation.

  18. I loved this post :) I used to use the Mint Julep mask but haven't for years for some reason...I remember loving it though!

  19. Hi

    Would you say Xen tan was the best tan? I have tried St Tropez I like it but it tends to wear off quickly and you need more than 1 application. I recently tried St Moritz which is only £2.99 its ok but not brilliant I find it comes of really easily!

  20. I have to say yes, i've tried st tropez, xen tan and a few more ias well but xen tan is the best i've tried, the colour is nice and deep, no orange tones, it smells lovely and wears off nice and evenly. Yep i love it x


Thankyou for all your comments, i appreciate each and everyone xx
