Winter Skin Soother - Nip+ Fab Dry Hand Fix

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I don't know about you but my hands are really feeling the wrath of this wintry weather. A good hand moisturiser is a compulsory addition to my handbag all year round, and is a product that I take very seriously. Let's face it. nobody wants 'old lady hands' before their time.

I've had a few hand creams on rotation lately but my favourite by far has been Nip + Fab Dry Hand Fix. The sister brand of Rodial has come up trumps with this product from its more affordable skincare line.

Limited Edition - Estee Lauder Zodiac Compacts

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

I've a sucker for anything related to my star sign (I'm a Leo - in case it isn't obvious) and when I saw this new release from Estee Lauder a few weeks ago, a small yelp of joy just may have passed from my lips.

Every year since 1963, Estee Lauder has introduced a collection of limited-edition solid perfume and pressed powder compacts. This year they have released an elegant, yet playful collection of Zodiac inspired gold compacts.

Haulage - The Body Shop Scented Candles

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Move over ASOS, with your faux promises of discount codes (go and have a look at the uproar on their Facebook page, after they withdraw a 20% off discount code, that they spent all morning spamming everyone's inbox with today), everybody knows that The Body Shop wins hands down and has the best online discounts.

Last week I took advantage of 50% off with the purchase of just four items (I bought more but I'll get to those later) online and saw it fit to indulge in my latest obsession - candles.
