The Beauty Corner.

Good evening lovelies!

Ever since I started blogging and building up my make up collection I have been interested in how all you lovely people store and organise all your products. Having taken a lot of inspiration from peoples instagrams and blogs I thought it was time to share mine with you :) (this post is pretty picture heavy sorry!)

So one of the things that I really liked from seeing all your storage, was the acrylic storage that everyone seemed to have! I think that it looks really smart, its easy to clean and you can see what is inside each drawer without having to open it - bonus! The other bits I have either recycled from something else or picked up along the way to increase my storage capacity. I have to say its a lot more fun (and easy) doing my make up from this every morning instead of having to scrabble around in a make up bag! It also keeps it all in tip top condition and stops everything from getting dirty or covered in different products, my powder never breaks anymore either! ;)

The Yule Monty!

Hello Beautifuls!

Now I'm pretty sure most of you will have heard of the crazy 'Star of the Month' offers that Boots have been knocking out. In a previous post I shared the beautiful Ted Baker makeup set that I got for a mere £19, bargain! But this month they really have excelled themselves by treating us to Soap & Glorys - The Yule Monty. 

This week I have received many an email from both Soap & Glory and Boots telling me about this incredible offer and how they have literally flown off the shelves! But can you blame us girls? As this gift set as originally priced at £60 and has been reduced to a mere £27 its an absolute steal.

The set itself is presented in a stunning limited edition Jonathan Saunders bag and contains 9 full sized products (and a trio of sample sachets) that would cost around £72 if bought separately! This including:

Hand Food Hand Cream
Sugar Crush Body Wash ( one of my all time favourites! )
The Righteous Butter Body Butter
Peaches and Clean Deep Purifying Cleanser
Heel Genius Foot Cream
Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion
The Scrub of Your Life Body Buffer
Thick & Fast Super Volume Mascara
Sexy Mother Pucker XL in Pink Out Loud
samples of Make Yourself Youthful Super Serum
a £5 off Soap&Glory facial skincare!

To be honest for £27 you can't exactly say no can you...

However I have to say that I am SO glad that I managed to get my hands on this! Having planned on getting up early to go buy it on Friday morning and dropping endless hints to my boyfriend (both plans failed terribly), I was feeling a bit apprehensive about whether I would be able to bag myself one. All over Instagram, Twitter, Facebook & email, Soap & Glory were telling me that they had already sold out online and were selling out fast nationwide! I definitely thought I had left it too late... But I took a chance and marched over to Boots after work yesterday to see if I could get one, and luck was on my side! I honestly can't wait to try it all out and highly recommend that you try and get your hands on one!
