Just a few things I've picked up recently and would like to share with you all.

Brown Leather Shoulder Bag -
I got this from a vintage shop for 50p, yes 50p. I absolutely love it, such a bargain!

Silver Snakeskin Pumps -
I love love love these shoes. They're in a size 7 which makes me so happy as I'm usually a size 8 - 9. They're from DPs, £18

(i hate my feet btw)

Rose & Co. Lip salve -
'Sweet Vanilla Salve with Beeswax & Honey', 'To smooth and soften the lips'. This was quite a pricey lipsalve, well compared to my usual Vaseline but I'm a sucker for cute packaging. It has cute little bees round the side as well.

Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail varnish in Beige Style -
I really like nude shades of nail varnish and eye shadow so this was perfect for me and the new brush is so good. It covers the whole nail in like two strokes and no need for a second coat! The pic shows the colour in all its glory. Would look even better with a tan *sob*

Grey Felt Flower Earrings-
I picked these up on my recent trip to York from a cute little jewellery shop on one of the tiny little streets. It was in the sale so they were only £1.90 *bargain*

If you haven't noticed already I have tiny ears ^-^ tehe

Soap & Glory Scrub Actually -
'An absolute smash of a body buffer, with smoothing brown sugar, white sugar and natural apricot kernel oil'. I've already tried their 'Flake Away' body scrub but in my opinion this is the better of the two. The bottle that I picked up had a WINNER sticker on it. Apparently it won the Beauty Insider's Choice award and I can see why. It smells GORGEOUS and doesn't leave a horrible layer on your skin after you wash it off. It's just deliciously soft and smooth and squeaky clean.

Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe 236ml -
The search is over for the perfect fake tan. I have found it. Behold Xen-Tan. 'Xen-Tan Premium Sunless Tan products are designed to have more olive undertone and delicious scents. High quality ingredients combine with realistic colour for a long wearing sunless tan.' The one I picked was the Deep Bronze Luxe product as it also has sheer instant colour so you can see just where you are applying it. It also smells lovely, like vanilla fudge. I'm in the minority in the fact that I actually like the smell of normal fake tan. Who doesn't like the smell of biscuits? But I've got to admit that this smells ten times nicer. It's also the only fake tan that I've managed to get streak free. I used a mit when applying it and it all worked wonderfully and I now have bronzed legs. Hurrah. Hopefully it should fade evenly *fingers crossed*!

This is the colour when it comes out of the bottle. And a little to the left is when it's rubbed in slightly. I don't know if you can see it or not. It looks a bit grey but it develops to a lovely olive brown :)
