The lovely Shali (frombeauty2fashion.wordpresss.com)  had a giveaway recently. I was delighted to have won. The prize was make up to create a christmas party look.

She had packaged it so nice with confetti and and a little heart coz she knows I love crafting, isn’t that just so sweet! :)) I was excited to try the nail polish and eyeliner especially, but was a bit nervous of the red haha! In fairness though I tried it on and suited me a lot better than I thought!!

Here I  used my Sleek I-Divine Storm palette to create a grey/blue smokey eye. I think it goes well with the Barry M Metallic liner.

Sorry the pics are so bad, my camera is so old, didnt realise 8 mega pixels was bad compared to what they have out now they are like double that lol! So I’m getting a new one for Christmas yayay!!

And here’s the lipstick!

And the nails! Really love this gold, it’s hard to describe but it almost looks like a suede effect when it’s on and very shiny too, this is with 2 coats and no topcoat! Beautiful!

Dealz Christmas Haul and a Competition for a €20 voucher!

Well I’m sure most of you know by now that I love Dealz, they have everything from beauty to homeware all at unbeatable prices (most things are all €1.49)  So I applied to be a Dealz ambassador to show you their great selection and now I am yippeeee :)
I will be doing more Hauls over the next year and show you all the fabulous deals you can get.

I went in for some Christmas bits and bobs last week. I got 21 items (and some had 2-3 items in each if you know what I mean) all for under €31!! As always I’m amazed at the amount of things I got and the quality too, it may be cheap but not cheap on quality. Also the staff are always very friendly and helpful in Dealz Blanchardstown. The store is always well stocked up and nice spacious isles so it’s easy to get around and find what you’re looking for

Take a look

Deals Christmas 2012 Haul

Beautiful 3 pack of wrapping paper for just €1.49 such good value isn’t it? I’m planning on using the 3-d decorations on some handmade cards :)

Glitter whooo! I’m like a magpie with Christmas decorations lol! My daughter actually came up with the idea to double the tree clip as a hair clip, I think it’s really cute!

Tree decorations also used as hair clip

Me and glitter are best friends so you can imagine my happiness when I seen this cute red glitter christmas tree (yes I am a glitter-a-holic) perfect little decorations for the table as are the candle holders.

Table Decorations

Glitter mini Christmas tree! Oh yeh!!

I actually bought the Allura beauty set for myself haha! Handy set to have in the handbag during the Christmas season. The tweezers is AMAZING girls!!!! As good as the ones I pay €10 for, no joke! It’s slanted and gives a great grip on the hairs your plucking.

I will deffo be buying a few more for my handbag, car etc! The nail files with it are also very handy and super cute. And I just love the jewellry stand..again these were all just €1.49 each!
You could get a ton of stocking fillers for just €10

cheap and cheerful Stocking fillers

With Christmas being sometimes quite stressfull Radox Unwind bath soak is a must have for me, €1.49 for this big bottle is amazing!. Also the good old Nair for people who hate waxing llike myself.

The highlighter does a pretty good job for the cheekbones too. Brush isn’t great with it but you just use your fingers or a concealer/foundation brush anyway

Not only are the cookies in these cartoon characters tins yummy,  but the tins will do for storage of other sweets or toys when empty or hang the lids on the wall and you have budget friendly kids room decor!! :P

Cute lil fella isn’t he? They also have a hanging snowman and Santa :)

I needed a serving tray for the cookies and biscuits eaten over christmas. The embossing on the tray is a really nice touch. You can’t have enough non stick roasting pans when making Christmas dinner either.
