Bath & Body Works Haul


My auntie bought this back especially for me, exciting products, fantastic smell, very reasonable price and only a little goes a long way! Sadly only available in the USA (although I do remember going into the Nottingham branch when I was a student) as they seem to have pulled all of the UK shops. Although I have heard a rumour there is still a branch in London (if so please let me know!). You can buy some products on ebay but sometimes pricey, not very new and a limited selection. Such a shame!
From left to right: Vampire Blood Plum handsoap (not real!!), Paris in Bloom shimmer mist (lovely smell and very pretty) and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin shower gel. I like that the products are not tested on animals either:

Other USA products that I constantly hanker after (it's not faiiirrr!) are:

Yankee Candles (you can get quite a few products here) Top shop I recommend (and recently got a limited supply of "Witches Brew" and some gorgeous new christmas samplers) http://www.yankeedoodle.co.uk/

The other one is: http://www.yankeecandle.co.uk/ but they seem to not get updated that quickly

Sephora (including the Kat Von D line) Again, don't ship here (grrr) but some stuff on ebay (limited and pricey). Again there was a shop in Southampton but this has also vanished (Sob!). Lots of brands but some tested on animals :(, not all though.

September Shop Picks on a Budget!!

A lot of the blogs I look at have beautiful products and clothes at not such pretty prices!
Anyway, I found two lovely products at good prices and available online, even better, one is reduced!
Continuing the squirrel theme (yes I know!), I have had my eye on this jumper for a while:

Dotty P's Squirrel Jumper (now reduced! Was £32 now £20)

New Liz Earle with Rose & Lavender Cleanse & Polish


Just released by Liz Earle - a limited edition version of the popular Cleanse & Polish with a donation going to the Prince's Trust for every one sold. I put some of the  Liz Earle products with my cleansing cloths in a pretty china bowl to stop me from losing them. The new scent is still reminiscent of the original LE fragrance, but there is a hint of lavender and rose and it's good for using at night to help calm you. I understand that they are limited so if you do want one don't wait too long before you buy!

Not so poison, Ivy? Florence & The Machine at the Bestival


Went out to the Bestival last night and it was absolutely heaving! The last time I went to the Bestival was way back in 2005 when it was still relatively small, it has grown a lot since then for sure. Lots of interesting and quirky displays such as the Insect Museum and various eateries. Florence & The Machine were the headline act and she was amazing, her voice and stage presence are spectacular. I particularly liked her outfit consisting of a green flowing dress and her Ivy headdress. If you get a chance to see this band live, definitely go! Me personally outfit-wise, well, I know it's Wild Animals this year but I will be rocking my floral headband and cut-off shorts with lashings of make-up
