October Boudoir Prive box

I'm sure you've all heard of Boudoir Prive, if you haven't it's basically a subscription service- you pay £10 a month and get a little box of roughly 5 sample size goodies.

I've been looking at trying one of these beauty boxes for a while, so when Boudoir Prive offered two extra samples when you signed up this month I signed up straight away and began the slightly long wait for my box.

As this was my first box I got two extra items from the September box, I used the Tropic body scrub this morning in my shower, it smells lush and I do think my skin is a little softer.
Not used the nail varnish yet but the colour is a lovely purple with gold flecks in it, so perfect for this time of year but considering all my nail varnish comes off at work I haven't bothered to test it for staying power.

I like the smell of this body butter but its a bit bit strong for everyday and I doubt anything will live up to my L'Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream.

This is actually a pre-shampoo hair oil which has gone solid in the cold weather but I simply pop mine next to my laptop for about 5 minutes and its good to use again. I have super damaged hair from bleaching out red dye in April (5 or so hours of bleach later the red came out) this, along with Ojon damage reverse products my hair is slowly getting better.

This is deffo my favourite thing from this box, I'm addicted to it a little bit but it makes my lips all lovely and soft and I love the taste.
It says its an all-round salve and I have used it a bit on my knees and elbows but it can be a bit greasy.

I've not used the mask yet and considering I'm only 23 I don't wanna use too many anti-aging products but I have used the 'Creme De Lite' serem on my neck a couple of times. Seems nice, probably too young to notice any difference though.

I love this pen too, it has such a fine nib which is perfect for just adding a bit of liner to your eyes to a day look. You can make the line thicker too but I'm yet to wear that look out so I don't know how long it'd last or whether it'd smudge.

I cancelled the boxes due to the fact I'm trying to save up for Christmas and driving lessons but I plan on inspecting a few more boxes around January so let me know your favourite beauty box.

Please Note: Sign up today by midnight to keep getting the boxes for £10, from tomorrow you have to pay postage.

Girl Crush-Dianna Agron

Being a little bit of a glee addict I often wish I was various members of the cast, atm I wish I was Quinn and I have a huge girl crush on Dianna Agron.

I always get the impression Dianna is really in touch with her fans as she seems really down to earth and lovely, Dianna also has her own tumblr.
Dianna is also a vegetarian and a huge supporter of animal rights so that's always a winner with me.

LOVE Cover A/W 2011/2012

So yesterday I was really excited for the Elle Fanning cover of the latest issue of LOVE magazine but today I've seen the Hailee Steinfeld one and I'm in love (erm). Can't wait to get my hands on it, which one will you choose?

One cover is yet to be released.

Things that make me happy

Elle Collections- Autumn Winter 2011. Wish I didn't have work tonight so I could get in bed with a cup of tea and have a good read. My Kindle. I don't need to say a lot but my kindle is my new baby, I'm completely hooked.

Cans of Diet Coke

The sun, not that it is out a lot atm.

Happy Birthday MKA

So the lovely Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are 25 today, to celebrate here are a few images from The Row Resort collection 2012.

As usual MKA produced a stunning collection. Strong tailoring paired with softer pieces and strangely appealing breton striped socks. Sleek hair and makeup ensured every detail in the collection was perfect for summer and after viewing this collection I'm craving a holiday in the South of France.

Shameless plug

I entered a Nokia competition recently and I wanna get through to the next round so I ask a favour, Nokia decided to not create a nice easy link for me to put on here or share with my friends so it has to be the long way. So
If you go here:

Then click on gallery, then on 'most liked' and finally click on my image (this one) and click on the like button.

If you do it thank you very much.

Glamour WOTY Awards

Maybe I'm just being fussy, I'm not really sure but not many people wowed me last night with their outfits for these awards. Everyone was just a bit too 'safe' and the ones that weren't didn't really pull off their outfits.
Here's the ones I liked though.

Lily Aldridge

Karen Gillian

Naomie Harris

Gemma Arterton

CFDA Awards

Sadly there were quite a few 'misses' last night at the CFDA awards but here are some of the outfits I loved.

Kirsten Dunst- I love this look on her, the hair is perhaps a little too harsh but she still looks amazing.

Amanda Brooks (Fashion director at Barney's) in Jil Sander.

Karlie Kloss, so a lot of people went for safe outfits but I still think Karlie looks good here.

Liv Tyler in Proenza Schouler

MKA Olsen in The Row, with Mary-Kate in Chanel Pre-Fall 2011. Perfect.

And for good measure Iris Apfel pictured here with Jason Wu

I love this woman

YSL Resort 2012

Okay okay, so everyone does nautical and it is getting a little bit boring but Stefano Pilati at YSL really made it work again (minus the anchor motif, what was that about?) Stefano mixed both of summers recurring trends, floral and nautical to make a hit collection, perhaps it was the perfect mix of them both or maybe this is one of the only Resort collections I've found interesting.
