Deliveries 2nd February 2018


These lovely samples arrived today, I know the bottom one came via a SoPost sampling but I’m not sure about the top one! Anyway, up top I have samples of Alien EDP and Alien Flora Futura, I haven’t opened them to smell them yet but they feel like they have some towelettes inside the packaging. I’m hoping they do as I love it when I receive perfume samples this way 😀

Below that is a small bottle of Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair which from the directions for use seems to be a serum type product. I love a good serum so am looking forward to trying this one out 🙂


Now we come to my other delivery today, I’m putting the picture under the description for a few reasons, I hope none of you mind 🙂 Over the weekend I found a bundle of beauty items on eBay which were a bit disguised (all upside down or covered by other items), it was easy to make out a few of the products that I am very familiar with but most I couldn’t even guess at but I counted around 30 items and with those I knew were there I placed a bid I was happy with.

I won the auction and the items arrived here today – I am totally blown away with what I have received. There are loads more items than I expected – 61 in fact! Yes there are some duplicates but that’s not a problem, not even the 4 identical brushes as I’m sure that whatever I decide I can’t use, someone in our families will find a home for 😉 Also, the observant among you might notice all of the items I received in my Tili box last November are there, these are the items I noticed and based my bid upon and the ones I wanted most as the box did live up to it’s name of ‘Try it, Love it’ 😀

Deliveries 31st January 2018

I had to do separate photo’s today as there was too much in each surprise to get them in one photo!


First up we have the #triyit box from They are a product discovery club who are currently in a pre-launch phase who send out boxes of goodies free of charge to those who match their brands criteria and this time I was a match! I’m really looking forward to trying these goodies, some I’ll even share with D but the one I can see the best future for is that porridge pot! I must have breakfast to take some tablets each morning and this can be difficult when we go away overnight but this could be an option for me to have a healthy breakfast which tastes great, I’ll be taking this next time we go in a few weeks!


The postman brought me this lovely surprise this morning which has come from a competition I entered with docrafts. These will no doubt come in very handy with my card making, my journal and gift wrapping, I already have a few idea’s 😀

I won this 40″ UHD TV from a competition that ran on the Woman’s Weekly site. The prize also includes a years BT TV package which we’ll be sorting out soon.

This prize has actually given me a lot of smiles, not just because it is an amazing prize but also because it is something that D asked me to try to win. Some of you may remember from the occasional post in the past that when D asks me to win a specific prize it generally turns up within 6 months or so. When I started talking to him about re-doing the living room he said I should try to win a new TV, at least 40″ that’s UHD (or 4K if you prefer) and has HDR as well. This TV ticked all his boxes and I know some might think that it happens because I enter more competitions for the items he requests than at other times but I know (and my friends that have met him know too) my husband is an effective good luck charm 😀

The postman has been nice to me again today. Both of these have come from a sampling via SoPost.

First I have a Sanctuary Spa Charcoal Bubble sheet mask, this sounded so interesting when I found the offer of a sample. I’ve heard good things about the use of charcoal in skincare BUT not so good ones about those painful charcoal masks, hopefully this will be good for my skin without any of the pain 🙂

Also I received this lovely sounding strawberry ‘milkshake’ made by Boost Drinks and packed with extra protein. I have always loved a milkshake but since being on my diet they have become a self banned food, I just can’t handle losing that many points in a drink!lol But this is a good way of compromising. Adding in the extra protein is good for my body and I’ve found having protein rich foods helps to keep me fuller for longer which is always great on any eating plan! So, as long as this tastes good, I might just have to buy some more for when I deserve a treat 🙂

These lovely goodies have come via a SoPost sampling and are Glamglow’s Galacticleanse and Thirstymud. As you can see from the included leaflet there was a choice of 2 options with this offer of samples, I chose the ones which seemed better for my skin and am looking forward to testing them out over the next few days 🙂

This arrived as a lovely surprise this morning. It’s a 15ml pot of Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask from Space NK. I believe I won it from a competition that ran on the Byrdie website last year. It looks like a gel in the pot and smells really fresh and lovely. After looking it up, it is very similar in use to a product I already use which I’m running out of so it’s great timing for me on its arrival!
