Beautiful earrings from... Peacocks!

Dear readers,

I headed down to my local highstreet today and as I went past the sale and discount signs outside of Peacocks, I couldn't help but to look inside!

As I waded through the shoppers looking for cheap jeans and jumpers, the jewellery racks were filled with some lovely stuff! I spotted these georgeous silver coloured earrings down from £3 to an amazing £1.50! 

I've never really looked closely inside Peacocks' jewellery but I will definitely be taking a much closer look next time I head down there! Why not take a look inside you're local store today? 

Here is the link for their website - 

Yours faithfully,

H&M Makeup Brushes!

Dear readers,

I have been on the look out for a very long time for some decent, yet not overly priced, make-up brushes... And I found some from H&M! These soft-bristled brushes are either £1.99 or £2.99 each and I also bought a sharpener for 99p too!

From left to right, the first brush is an soft angled brush priced at £2.99 which will be perfect for contoring or blush. The next is a doubled ended eyeshadow and an angled brush for eyeliner or for eyebrows which was £1.99. Next came a flat eyeshadow brush for £1.99 which is soft but still dense enough for eyeshadow. The last two were both £2.99 each and the first is a lovely big powder brush and the second, a double ended foundation and blush or powder brush! 

I cannot wait to fully try these out! They seem well made and of a great quality! I just used the eyeshadow and angled contoring brushes and they seem wonderful! A great buy too!

So, if any of you are looking for some new makeup brushes which won't break the bank but are still great head down to H&M!

Yours faithfull,


Hello readers!

Hopefully, if you are reading this post, you too, are passionate for cheap beauty products! This doesn't mean they need to be of a bad quality, just good stuff that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I never spend much on my makeup and I always buy mine from brands like '2True', 'Makeup Acadamy' and 'Miss Sporty'. These brands get over looked because their products are around £1-5... but expensive make-up doesn't necessarily mean good. Products from ranges like these are wonderful, and there are some great alternatives to the more expensive brands.

I hope to share with you my tips and tricks of how to spend less but still get great quality make-up using our great British highstreet and the World Wide Web! (Wow - I sound like Gok Wan!)

Yours faithfully,
