Recent buys

I hope everyone has had a lovely bank holiday weekend? Mine has been lovely. I saw Lost Prophets at Brixton Academy on Friday night which was brilliant and then spent the rest of the time with my parents in Surrey.

We spent some time shopping in Guildford and I bought a few bits and bobs. I finally purchased Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua (in shade 20 Beige) which I've wanted to try for ages but haven't been able to justify the £31 cost. Luckily I had a £15 birthday voucher for House of Fraser which I put towards it and am very excited to use this. The Chanel counter assistant was absolutely lovely and gave me a sample of one of their new Levres Scintillantes lipglosses in 166 Amour.

I also bought the new Models Own nail polish in Indian Ocean which I saw on Fleur's blog and knew I had to have it- it's taken me a while to find a Boots or Superdrug that sells it! The combination with Barry M's Berry Ice Cream is divine so is going to be my choice of nail varnish this week.

Finally, I have run out of all my cleansers so was in dire need of a new one. Ideally I'd splash out on a fancy new one but we are trying to save and so I found one that I had enough Boots points to buy- this was the Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Cleansing Lotion. I used it last night and it smells lovely and feels really moisturising- you just massage in and rinse off. My only concern is that it's for dry skin (mine is combination- I didn't read the label before buying, doh) but it will do for now!

  3. I want to try that foundation, however I recently bought Perfection Lumiere and it breaks me out (which is a shame because it's my favourite foundation ever) so I' a bit cautious as to whether I should even try this!

  7. I'd love to hear your opinion about the Vitalumière Aqua Chanel foundation. I too have been flirting with it for a bit, but it is sooo pricey, it discourages me a little. Still... Would love to hear your thoughts on it.
    Many hugs,
    Melissa.
