This Week's Favourites ♥

MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish


MAC Superb Extra Dimension Skinfinish is probably one of the best highlighters I've ever come across. It provides such a beautiful sheen. As you can see in the swatch, Superb is a lightly peachy shimmery beige. It is not glittery at all. Apply sparingly and precisely however, you don't want to look like the tin man! I'm also eye-ing up MAC Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skinfinish, which is more yellow-toned and might look better on my skintone, but it's so popular that I probably won't be able to find it anywhere. maccosmetics.co.uk


H&M Faux Pearl Collar Necklace

I finally found a collar necklace! This is from H&M for £7.99.

Graze Box


I was so excited to get this. The Graze box is a weekly box of healthy tidbits. I just love munching on tasty snacks. In my box I got Banoffee Pie, Veggie Sushi Plate, Fennel Seed & Honey Peanuts, and Basil & Garlic olives. I loved the  Veggie Sushi Plate  the most - definitely ordering that again. If you want to try out a free box, feel free to use my code -- 4PZZR44. Each use also helps me with £1 to spend on another box - I will love you for this! http://graze.com/

Homemade Sushi - rolled by the Man

I never noticed that he'd become a pro sushi roller/maker until he made this! We used pre-cooked tempura prawns from Marks & Spencer and sweet tamago cooked by yours truly. Superman rolled and cut all of this in under 20 minutes. Amazing! I just love domesticated men. Ha ha ;)

Dove Volume Boost Conditioner

What a wonderful conditioner.. there isn't a single Dove product I've come across that I didn't like! This Dove Hair Conditioner leaves my hair really soft and smooth, and best of all -- feeling light. I find that this indeed provides some volume to my hair, and definitely a bounce too! http://www.boots.com/



VO5 Deep Nourishing Hot Oil 

V05 Hot Oil is a quick fix for all you dry haired girls out there! Heat it up under running warm water in the shower, and spread on your hair. I like placing it need the ends of my hair as they need more love. It only takes ONE minute to work - don't leave it for any longer as it might be too rich for your hair. http://www.boots.com/


Moor BTH002 Stereo Bluetooth Headset


I've been looking for bluetooth headphones with microphones in them so I don't have to keep holding my phone to my ear every single time I have a phone call. The man and I speak for about an hour each night and after a while holding up the phone gets tiring. And I am just really lazy. Sometimes the speaker on the phone isn't loud enough either.
This MOOR BTH002 Stereo Bluetooth Headset is pretty easy to use and being bluetooth based - they are wireless. I use them to listen to music and for calls (in-built microphone, still don't know where it is! :P). The first time I used them, I was astounded by the sound quality. It diffuses background noise well. It is probably not as good as Bose ones, but for £34.99, it's a steal. 
My only wish for these is that they were fold-able for easier storage. But other than that I am very pleased. If you're looking for affordable quality iPad headphones, definitely have a look into these. http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/moor-bth002-stereo-bluetooth-headset-p27019.htm
