I always like a good trip the car boot,there are always some serious bargains to be had and i love nothing more than a good rummage.
I have been unable to go to the car boot sales this summer because of the rubbish weather but i knew good weather was forecast for last weekend so off i went.
I picked up a variety of bargains but by far the Best bargains were a brand new Sanctuary Pamper box full of products for wait for it......................£2.50.....absolute bargain.
When i have used the products the little drawers will be perfect for all the beauty box goodies i am accumulating.

I also picked up three brand new nails inc polishes for £2

Bargains,i am sure you will agree.

Did anyone else pick up any bargains lately? would love to hear about them :)

July JolieBox

I loved last months Jolie box which i only received not too long ago due to postal issues,i decided i needed to cut back and cancelled my subscription but the money must have already come out of my bank because July's box landed on my doormat today and i am pretty pleased with it to be honest.

I received....
Full sized Yardley Peony luxury body wash - This is a little old fashioned but i like Yardley,it seems to be having a bit of a revival at the moment.
Etat Pur express purifying mask- I am a big fan of Etat Pur,having used their products before.My skin is in dire need of a facial, i will be doing my own at the weekend and will use this.

Wen by chaz Dean sweet almond and mint cleansing conditioner- This looks and smells amazing and is unlike any conditioner i have tried before because it has a foaming effect.I will defiantly be reporting back on this one :)

Jane Iredale Tantasia sample-A mini tan building moisturiser which smells lovely and zesty.
Jolie toe separates annnndddddd

last but no means least..

2 x Nails girls nail polish- In a bronze and gold shade that will look great with a tan
Hope you enjoy you boxes for those who ordered and i would be interested to know what you thought of your box.
I meant to mention that i received an email last night from Glossybox who were giving away the Natural box or Harrods box with this months Glossybox,all for £12.90
You have to mention which box you want 'Natural' or 'Harrodsbox' during checkout (in promo code box)  but it was only for the first 100 people so it may be up its limit now but worth a try!

RIP Stella

Sadly 2 days ago we had to say goodbye to our brloved staffie dog 'Stella'.
She was the ripe old age of 12,we have had her since she was a 8week old puppy and she was very much part of the family.
She was diagnosed with breast and lung cancer so we spoilt her for a few months.
She was energetic at times but became very withdrawn then all of a sudden was struggling to walk and was in pain so we made the heartbreaking decision to let her go.
Watching her in the vets is one of the most sad times i have ever had to endure and i was in floods of tears.
The house is earily quiet without her here and i keep finding myself doing things that i did when she was still here and then i remember.
I thought losing a pet would not be as hard but she was more than a pet,she was one of the family.
I so understand how people feel when their pet dies and my heart goes out to you.

RIP Stella xxx

 Ice Age 4 - Continental Drift 3D

I took my children on Friday teatime to watch Ice Age 4.
I have always really enjoyed the Ice Age films and found them really funny.
It has the same lovable and hilarious characters with some new baddies,it became quite apparent very quickly that famous names where voicing the main characters as they were familiar.
The 3D aspect of the film was ok but nothing special,it had a good story line and some hilarious scenes,it was great to listen to all the children giggling in the cinema.
A thoroughly enjoyable film that has everybody laughing,young and old,my favourite character being the 'granny' she was hilarious.

highly recommend no matter what age you are :)

I recently received discount code for Junes joliebox and was really excited.
There was a delay in postage but it finally arrived the other day.
Its contents were....

Yonka Pamplemousse protective and revitalising cream with essential oils,i have never tried this and it comes in a massive 50ml which after looking up is really expensive so i am really happy to have received this.

institut esthederm spray bronzant which advises to spray before going out in the sun to facilitate bronzing.Yet another product i have never tried.L'Occitane hydration cream,i now have 2 of these after receiving the same one in the latest in beauty box.

Rouge a levres lipstick,this looks great and good quality but unfortunately deep red is not my shade so will be passed on
I also received a little Jolie nail file.

This months box was centred on French products and i was over the moon with the contents.

I cant wait to try,

Reviews coming soon :)

Latest in Beauty Editors pick for June box

I was informed that there was an editors pick facial care box in June being released and although i have lots of face creams i could not resist the box.
It was a bargain at £11.90 which included p&p and these boxes are so popular that i didn't want to miss the boat.
It didn't take very long at all to come and i was not disappointed.

The box is nothing special but the contents were great.

I was happy with the Etat Pur full size micellar cleansing water,this product is so gentle and kind to the skin,it effectively removed makeup and debris from the skin with the minimal of effort and is lovely and refreshing,it leaves the skin clean and not irritated at all.

The Melvita Naturalift facial cream is great.
Melvita is one of my favourite brands and this one did not disappoint,it smells amazing and is so soothing and plumping on your skin.

The Kiehls midnight recovery concentrate comes in a great expensive looking bottle with pipette applicator.
This blend of essential oils smells amazing but is a little tricky to apply and in my opinion i have not noticed any difference yet but it is quite expensive so do not know if i am sold on this one yet but will do a full review later.

I have yet to try the other products so will report back.

All in all a fantastic box :)
