AVON SuperShock lash love?

After reading the gorgeous Claire's ( post on this month's Magazine Freebies click here to read it! I decided to seek out Marie Clare and scoop up one of Avon's 3 free mascara offerings.  I decided this was a necessity buy and was top of my Saturday Morning "Big Shop" list as the week previous, I was nearing depressive states after clinging onto the dregs of my ScandalEyes (click here for blog post) and it finally drying out.   I stupidly thought a Collection 2000 £2.99 jobby would suffice, it never, didn't even come close, (what was I thinking?).  

So Claire's blog post couldn't have come at a better time, Marie Clare for £3.70 with a huge 10ml freebie of Avon's Supershock Max Mascara it's a huge contender to knock Rimmel's Scandal'Eyes of my mascara top spot.  It's extremely black, glossy and easy to use, not heavy, claggy or crumbly the only down side is it doesn't keep the curl as much as Scandal'Eyes but it has certainly filled a Big Orange  Mascara tube shaped hole in my make up bag....


Have you bagged any of the Avon mascaras with this month's Marie Clare yet, or managed to pick up any of this months magazine freebies as recommended by Claire?

My Latest in Beauty, Little Beauty Box

I blooming well love Latest In Beauty, not your average beauty box, there is no subscription charge and you can choose your samples!!

See my other latest in beauty post click here on the details, the charge has increased by 50p but thats still only £1.50!! for 3 samples of your choice (from a selection) of course. 

The options I chose this month are Tressemme Split Mend Shampoo, Split Mend Conditioner and Split Mend and Protect Leave In Treatment, 2 x 10ml sachets of each product, 2 x sachets of Elemental Herbology | Cell Food Serum and Dr Bragi Anti Age moisturiser 4x sachets!

I'm saving the samples to take on holiday with me (more space for shoes you see) but I've had a sneaky go at the Dr Bragi Moisturiser, it's quite strange as i'ts a clear gel like formula, but it is so hydrating so this is a definate keeps for my hols to rehydrate by parched skiN!

I really reccommend Latest in Beauty, the option above (3 samples of your choice for £1.50) is called the Little Beauty box, but they also do Luxury samples at great prices (can order individually) or they do themed boxes which are great value and contain great products such as Elemis, loccitane and Bastiste, but these are specially released so it's worth following Latest In Beauty on Twitter click here, or on Facebook, click here to be able to get details of their release, they tend to sell out quickly but sometimes they have a waiting list and they order more!

Gorgeous Finds at has an amazing sale on at the moment so I managed to pick up these gorgeously designed recycled storage bags.  They are reduced from £4.99 to £2.95 and I bagged 2 of the Pink Vintage design and 2 of the fresh looking pear design. These bags are deceptive size don't realise how big they really are when opened up there are amazing!  Fastening with a zip and they have a sturdy base so stay standing in position.  I've filled one of mine with all my bikini's and I'm still pondering over what to put in the other 3, maybe one for shoes, one for jumpers and one for hats, scarves and gloves??? I cant wait to stand them all in the top of my wardrobe! (is that sad!?!?) 

I also picked up this cute rabbit hanging ornament, at the moment its hanging from the door handle to my green themed room but I may just log back onto dotcomgiftshop and get a few more of him and hang them on the wall together...oh and definitely pick up some more of the recycled storage bags...I'm not obsessed I'm just doing my bit for the environment....

Have you picked up any bargains from dotcomgiftshop yet??

Are you a storage freak like me!!
