Spot the cup and saucer trying to hide in the tablecloth..
Coat: c/o Motel//(clown)Jumper: Monki//Skirt: American Apparel//Brogues: Topshop
This photo shoot didn't go so well, these are the best of a bad bunch and one doesn't even have my face in it. Oh and I'm finally indulging in a bit of nail art, woo!
So I received my free Glossybox in the post after attending the Motel/Glossybox bloggers evening. I have to say straight up, it's not really something I would subscribe to. Not only am I living with nearly no money, but although I understand it's a fun surprise to open a pretty box every month and find new products inside, I think it would mostly be more miss than hit with me. I'm no beauty junkie, and though I do like finding out about new products, I think I can do that by reading other people's posts on their boxes. Or y'know, just popping to my nearest Superdrug/Boots and testing things out for myself. I don't wear that much make up and I'm quite happy at the moment with Aussie hair products, Garnier BB cream and a few others bits and pieces.
Still, it was fun to open the box! I will use the hand cream, and try out the hair treatment (sounds like a bit of a faff so only at the weekend..). My nails are short so the nail wraps aren't ideal.
A couple of welcome bits of news this week- I came fifth in the ethical fashion comp (congrats to Vic by the way for coming 1st!) so I cannot wait to receive my bag of vintage goodies.
I also received a visit from the Fairy Hobmother! The fairy that visited me is actually a man (but who am I to judge? :p) from Appliances Online. This couldn't have come at a better time, and I'll try to buy a few Christmas pressies with the Amazon voucher. Mr fairy will be paying a visit to this blog post and subsequently choosing someone who comments to be the next recipient!
