Weekly Ramble

I hope you are all enjoying you week and the lovely weather!

Of course this weekend I managed no blog post but sadly the weekends always get filled with other things, even with the rain I spent most of yesterday in the park for what I can only describe as a Portuguese festival, which takes place every year in south London.
 Thought I might as well share this picture which I accidentally sent to Twitter instead of Facebook. It shows my everyday makeup and my hair with my extensions which I will be talking about later on in the week. Of course it also shows that sadly I am a very messy person!
I also attended a few beauty events this week and I will be blogging more thoroughly about the products as the month goes on. 

As many of you may have heard Stila is making a come back to the UK in Boots and department stores so they held an event for some bloggers. I actually didn't know too much about Stila as I feel I was just starting of with makeup when it left the UK but they have some fabulous looking products I can not wait to get my hands on such as the primer and bronzer. I have a few product to review soon so keep an eye out for that.

Last week Paul & Joe also launched their Spring/Summer 2011 collection The Blue Horizon with some beautiful packaging (as always) with my favourite being the glittery nail polishes! I simply must get my hand on the Mediterranean colour it is stunning! Once again I have a review and swathes coming so keep an eye out.

Another event which pleasantly surprised me was the Sainbury's Beauty event they really do have some fabulous bargains! I think Dirty Works is a great alternative to vintage inspired brands such as Soap & Glory and Benefit although the collection isn't quite as extensive the prices are very affordable! Mandara Spa offers luxurious products for reasonable prices and every product smells divine!

Also I am very excited that Laura (aka Lollipop26) has returned to the blogging world and I think this blog is even better then the previous one! I read all of it as soon as I found out about it! She was the main person who inspired me to start blogging so I am very glad she is back! New blog is called Buy Now Blog Later

Have a fabulous week!
