Dior Beauty VIP

Love the idea of high end beauty freebies?
Then you NEED to get yourself on the Dior VIP beauty mailing list!

Every time you purchase something at your local Dior counter make sure they fill out a VIP form for you.

Sometimes I haven't even made a purchase and I'm just there picking up some new samples and or checking out the new collection. I still ask the staff to fill in a form for me and have never been refused.

Being a VIP means I receive invitations through the post several times a year to go to my local counter and be given freebies. These can be anything from a sample of a new product to full on gift sets! The more times you have purchased from a counter (and so had a VIP form filled in) the higher value gifts you receive – it's that simple!

You also get invitations to special Dior events held in local department stores, invitations to have free makeovers and sometimes miniatures and samples are sent direct in the post.

Today for example I popped in to replace my trusty Diorskin Nude Air Powder (in 030 if you were wondering) and left with the bundle of goodies you can see in the pictures below. I've also included the Miss Dior Soap gift set that I received about 2 months ago as I forgot to share it at the time.

Lastly, don't forget to ask for it all to be gift wrapped. This costs nothing, the boxes are stunning, they change designs seasonally and are the perfect dressing table/bedroom storage solution for little bits and bobs. Just look how pretty today's box is!

Product Review: Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Nose Pore Strips With Activated Charcoal

Okay, so these bad boys are awesomely gross and satisfying and just 100% my guilty pleasure! I’ve always been a fan of the nose and facial strips but have wanted to try the charcoal ones for a while as apparently they draw out way more gunk and nastiness.

These come with 2-steps, which I’ve never seen before. The first strip you put on a clean wet nose and leave for about 15 minutes or until rock hard. They you rip it off and get to admire all the crap that just came out of your face!

Then you rinse off any leftover residue, dry your nose and put on the second strip, which is saturated and has an immediate cooling and tightening effect to close your pores but also moisturise.

Pretty impressive for the price. Needs to be used regularly for maximum impact I would say.

£5.99 from Boots 

4/5 stars

Any recommendations or products you want me to try let me know! 😘

Birthday Wishlist 2014


Thanks to Taylor Swift, that song has been the anthem to the last year of my life, and I’m sad that I will no longer be able to sing it with such gusto once I turn 23 on the 5th September… I know it’s ridiculous but I feel so old!

However, my birthday does mean a day of celebrating ME! It’s the one day a year when I can get away with doing what I want, I get to demand breakfast in bed and take as long as I want in the bath pampering myself. And then of course, perhaps the best bit, you get presents!!

Speaking of presents… Here is my wishlist for my 23rd year of life, hopefully the birthday fairies get it in time!

1. These Boots 👌

20140812-223649-81409290.jpg These ‘Ruby Black Platform Chelsea Boots’ from Public desire are £29.99 and can be found here. I have planned so many outfits around these and I don’t even own them yet!

6. Or These Pyjamas 🙈

20140812-223649-81409809.jpgAlso from Peter Alexander are these super cute Wizard Of Oz Pyjamas which you can find here. Not cheap, at $59.95 (£32) for the top and $79.95 (£43) for the bottoms but so worth it just for the nostalgia!

7. The Wonder Product 🙏

20140812-223651-81411012.jpgThe Body Shops ‘Instablur’ is already a favourite in my make-up bag. It works wonders on my combination skin and evens out my complexion for what I like to call ‘the instagram effect’. Unfortunately I recently ran out and every The Body Shop store I’ve been to over here hasn’t had it! You can find it online here so if anyone from the UK wants to go pick some up and send it over to Australia that would be awesome!

8.This iPhone Case20140813-123759-45479811.jpg
This ‘show me your kitties’ phone case from Typo made me LOL so hard when I saw it. You can find it here for $9.95 (£5) bargain!

Oh, and a return flight to visit home would be awesome. Feeling the homesickness right about now. Want some loving from my mumma and an evening of wine and pizza with my girlfriends. ✈️

I absolutely LOVE travelling and Australia is beautiful but sometimes there is just no place like home. 🏠

And also I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my baby brother who is 20 today! I love you kiddo. 😘
