MUA Haul: Make Up Academy – the £1 make up range from Superdrug


A couple of weeks ago, I was skulking around in Superdrug when I noticed this rather simple looking range called Make Up Academy, or MUA. They do liquid eyeliner, lip gloss in a tube and in a long container, nail polish, blush, eyeshadow, eye dust, mascara, eye glitter and lipstick. Everything in the range is just £1 – so I decided to buy a few things to play with. Superdrug being Superdrug, a lot of […]

Random, Cute Stationery Haul: Handmade Stamps from Home Bargains


Apart from loving notebooks, I also love stamps, beads, art supplies in general – including stamps! I find that handmade stamps, or the ones that come on woodblocks can be quite expensive, about £4+ each. Well during a visit to Home Bargains (a discount store in England – I LOVE it) I found these stamps: There’s a mixture of stamps – Happy Birthday, Thankyou, even Muchas Gracias! I think they’ll come in use and are […]

Notebook Geekery: Paperchase Day Trippers Notepad


Didn’t I say I have a notebook fetish? Mr Candy found stacks and stacks of half used notebooks and diaries, and he has totally banned me from buying any more…but I couldn’t resist Paperchase’s new collection Day Trippers when I was browsing in store yesteryday: I think Paperchase get it so, so right for stationery addicts like me. They release new collections every few months that they design, usually 2 or 3 at a time […]

Haul: Bobbi Brown Color Strips in Bonfire Palette


Bobbi Brown’s Color Strips Limited Edition release kind of passed me by, until I saw some snazzy visuals. The Color Strips collection is somewhat customizable…you select an eyeshadow strip then a pot rouge strip to put into the palette. The total cost for the two strips and case (£19 + £16 + £5) becomes £40 which is the average price for a Bobbi Brown Palette. The eyeshadow choices are Bonfire: Orchid: Aquamarine: Petal: There are […]

What’s your average beauty and skincare haul?


If there’s one shop where I can always find something to buy its Boots. Boots is the biggest pharmacy/drugstore over in the UK, where you can buy make up from drugstore level to high end, healthcare items, skincare, fragrance, even baby clothes and toys. This is what I picked up on my lunch break last week: Imperial Leather Foamburst Shower Gel in Hawaiian Spa (love this, good fun) Impulse Temptation Body Spray (was on offer […]

Sexy Haul: ADDICTION 2010 SUMMER Limited Edition Le Mepris Palette


This is my first foray into ADDICTION, a brand backed by Kose and designed by ex-Nars make up artist Ayako. The whole line appeals to me – I am a true Nars fan, but the prices put me off. I decided to splurge after seeing the visuals for the Limited Edition Summer Collection, named Le Mepris: You can’t GET any more Nars than that – Nars is forever naming his products after films and places. […]

Haul: Japanese Make Up: Addiction, Elegance, Panasonic, Rimmel…


Naughty reader, Kuri did a little CP for me in Japan – I was so excited about this because this haul contains some products from Addiction (my first haul with that brand) and my dream lipstick. My dream lipstick I have been lusting after for months! The haul: I got some Rimmel goodies, because they have palettes you can’t buy in the UK, Elegance Spice Shot Rouge lipstick and Curl Lash Fixer, the Le Mepris […]

Random Haul: Hello Kitty Security Stamp & Kikis Delivery Service


I was actually shopping on Strapya World – an online Japanese bric-a-brac store which looks like its on acid – for some gems and sticky things to do a customisation tutorial… But I also ended up with these cool bits! Kikis Delivery Service mini stamp set, and a Hello Kitty Security Stamp. If you don’t know what Kiki’s Delivery Service is, its an animation written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The stamps…lots of Gigi (the […]
