January Sale Goodies
I braved the sales this morning i particularly wanted to visit Lush,I am not one for queueing for hours and no longer have the patience that i used too to physically fight my way the the rails,its not worth the stress,just the mere fact of a one person in m way starts to get my blood boiling.
I went to lush first but it didn't open till 11am so went for a quick browse in another favourite River Island.
I didn't need anything in particular but was on the lookout for a new coat and possibly a purse.
River Island was quite busy but not overly so and was quite calm considering the amount of people inside,i found a lovely purse that will go well with my new bag i received for Christmas and at only £8 it was a bargain.
Next i nipped to New Look where i picked up some nice jewel encrusted dolly shoes up for £9,i am a magpie for anything sparkly and these look lovely on.
I then had 15 minutes to make my way back to lush for the 11am opening only to notice that a small queue had now formed and joined it excitedly.
Once the doors opened that was it,about 30 queuers all scrambled towards the Christmas section at the back of the store for the half price goodies.
All Christmas gift sets,Christmas range and makeup was half price,it was a massive scrum,i literally had to just pick up the boxes that looked the best,if you stopped to check what was in them the rest would have gone,about 80% went in about 3 minutes.
If you bent down to the bottom shelf you couldn't get back up for people leaning over the top of you.I saw people just grab about 6 boxes and saw a basket full of snow fairy,i was happy just to grab one large snow fairy bottle which was the last one.
I am all for a bargain but some people get so rude and pushy its really rude,i want a bargain but not that much pffftttt!
I made my way to another queue for the till where i had no idea what my haul would come and it did come to more than what i was expecting but at half price it is worth it and this lot will last me now till next year!
needless to say lots of reviews to come :)
Did anyone else go to the sales? if so what did you get?

China Glaze All That Glitters Mini Pack
I am a magpie when it comes to nail polishes and when requested for gold
sparkly polish by a client it was a great excuse to purchase the China Glaze
sparkly polishes that i had my eye on for a while.
This little set is great,although the polishes are mini they are a decent size and will last for ages.
They can be applied on their own or as i like to do,apply over a matching nail polish for added effect.
The red polish -Pure joy, is great for Christmas,it is a great festive red with little bits of gold glitter throughout.
The next -Glitter all the way,is my favourite,it has different coloured
glitter and gives better coverage than the others,this looks best over
darker polish or on its own.
The nest one is Champagne kisses,this is a gorgeous gold/bronze colour and has loads of sparkle.
lastly is Angel wings,this is a subtle gold fine glitter and looks good
over another polish as it does not have as much impact on its own.
All these polishes are high quality,easy to apply and dry quickly,they also last for ages,what more could you want.
I highly recommend one of the best polish brands there is :)

I have recently discovered this fantastic brand not only do they use natural organic ingredients and great ethics they are very affordable and effective, before I give my review on this lovely shampoo let me fill you in about the brand.
About RENREN say that they offer skincare as it should be. They use the latest hi-tech bio actives, free from skin-unfriendly ingredients and are gorgeously pleasurable to use.
REN Skincare is a unique skincare regime that uses the soothing and potent capabilities of powerful plant bio actives. Developed as a real alternative to preservative and chemical laden designer skincare and mass-market products, REN skincare is a natural beauty choice.
They go by 5 principles and I love a product that is not only going to be kind to my skin but also has a conscience:
"We make Clean Products that are free from skin-unfriendly ingredients including: Synthetic fragrance, pore-blocking petrochemicals, sulfate detergents, synthetic colours, animal ingredients * and parabens." In addition, REN products do not contain potential irritants including: glycols and diglycols (such as propylene glycol), PEG's, PPGs, urea, D.E.A, T.E.A, PABA and other synthetic sunscreens, aliphatic alcohols/hydrocarbons, phthalates, fumarates, amines, alkanolamines, synthetic AHAs/BHAs, polyacrylamide, metacrylate, elastomer, poloxamer, styrene, vinyl, polyquaternium, synthetic chelating agents, nylon, nitriles, nitrates, nitrosamine releasers, bromates, fluor, aluminum and alumina etc.* other than milk in our Hydra-Calm Youth Defence Serum and beeswax in our Mayday Mayday Rescue Balm.
"We aim to pioneer new ways of applying the latest discoveries in bio active technology to produce groundbreaking formulations that are Clean, effective and a joy to use."
"We believe gorgeous skincare can just make the world a slightly nicer place to be and make us feel a little nicer being here."
"We do our bit to minimise our use of the world’s limited natural resources.We donate a minimum of 2.5% of our profits to campaigns that promote a better environment and a better life for those less fortunate than ourselves.
"We believe a principle is a principle even if it costs money. We believe we reap what we sow. We prefer goodwill to suspicion, humour to gravitas. We welcome difference."
Now for My ReviewI have tried a few various products in the Ren range previously and have been impressed with them so was eager to try their hair care range.
It is a gentle shampoo based on mild cleansers sourced from Oats and using bio actives from Bay Oil (stimulating) and Lemon Oil (cleansing).
This product uses only 100% natural fragrance and is free from harsh sulfate detergents and synthetic colours.
The packaging is simple yet also looks quality and not too fussy looking. The flip lid makes it easy to use in the shower.
The shampoo itself has a nice creamy texture and slight scent, the arma is very natural and not at all overpowering.
It feels really creamy on the hair and scalp but lathers up well but not as much as other shampoos I have used indicating that it is not packed with lathering additives which was a massive plus for me and unlike any shampoo I have tried before.
Rinsing was effortless but also left my hair feeling thoroughly clean and fresh. It was kind to my skin which sometimes gets a little irritated when rinsing shampoo from my hair.
I followed up with REN Pro Vitamin Hair Conditioner. My hair was left wonderfully soft and healthy with a beautiful slight scent.
The shampoo is definitely different from anything I have tried before prompting me to write this review the fact that it felt so much different on my scalp and hair impressed me greatly.
I have yet to try a Ren product that I don't like. I recommend this product and brand highly especially if you have sensitive skin/scalp and at a price everyone can afford it just makes for great value for money.
I can't wait to try more of the range!
