A few little treats

Last Friday I had a well earned day and took myself shopping - I've done all my Christmas shopping online so this shopping trip was all for me and I thought I'd share some of the treats that I picked up.


NARS Sheer Glow: Mont Blonc



I've wanted to try this for a long while but I'm rather cheap J but seeing as Space NK had 20% off, I thought why not! I have only used it once this week as I came out in a few spots so I'm not sure if it was the foundation or the fact that I'm quite stressed out this week - I'm hoping it's the latter because I do love this foundation, definitely lives up to its name. 


MAC Studio Finish Concealer: NW25



I have been using the Laura Mercier secret concealer since May, but when it ran out last week, I thought I'd dabble in a different one and picked this special little one. I've used it all week and like it a lot, but have a few little issues with applying it - the LM concealer was so creamy whereas this one is a bit more hard (I hope that makes sense) - any tips of how you apply it would be very much appreciated! 

Primary mittens:


Mittens did feature in my last shopping trip but I don't think you can have enough mittens during the winter-I suffer with reynauds so I need to keep my little fingers warm and it's guaranteed that I'll lose at least one mitten so I always need back ups and these beauties are so warm (and a complete bargain at £3-gotta love Primark). 

Lush - Christmas products:



I have never bought anything from the Lush Christmas collection (if I'm honest, I've bought very little from Lush in the past) but I've heard so much on here about the Christmas products that I caved and took myself in to the sweetly smelling shop and came out with these 2 products. 
There was quite a few of the products that I wanted that were in the Christmas Candy Box I thought I'd just treat myself to the gift set, especially the snow fairy products which do smell just as amazing as I was expecting. I have already treated myself to a bath with half the candy cane bubble bar and it was a gloriously bubble filled sweet bath! 
The lovely assistant (they always seem so lovely in Lush) also convinced me that I needed to get the Gingerbread House bubblebar and I'm so glad I did-it smells amazing and I really don't want to ruin it, it looks so cute! 

Next: Christmas decs


And I finally, I got a little festive in Next and treated myself to some decs! This will be my first year in my new home with the BF so I've decided to treat myself to some new decs this year and I love this little Crimbo family.
