Deliveries 28th September 2017


A lot of deliveries have arrived today!

The slippers are another part of my treats from winning that lovely cheque earlier this month. I’ve had both cheap and expensive ones in the past and have found I love these from Shoe Zone the most. They’re lovely and comfy, the bootie slippers are really warm and they all last a good while even with me walking miles in them (indoors) each day!

The socks I purchased via eBay and are to make the slippers last a bit longer than they would otherwise and they look cute too!

The Barny Ranger Discovery Diary I won via an on pack competition for a friend, I’ll be passing this along to her next time we manage to meet up!

The Brockmans Gin D won a few weeks ago via the ‘Press to Win’ app on their Facebook page. He’ll be pleased when he gets home to see this has arrived 🙂

I also have a test product being delivered later but decided to do this post without it as I’m not totally sure I could have shown you all anyway 🙂

Deliveries 26th September 2017


I was a woman on a mission last week! My favourite intensive conditioner was on a fab deal ages ago so I bulk bought it and sadly hit my last tub so I started to look around to try and buy some more. Imagine my horror to find it’s not sold in the UK any more! Luckily I found it on Amazon, I think the packaging is in German but it smells just as good as always 😀

While I was on Amazon I figured I’d get some more books to make sure to receive free delivery so I hit my wishlist and added these 3 in. Hopefully I’ll get around to them soon 😀

Deliveries 22nd September 2017


At the top is a sample of Persil’s new product, Powergems and a money off coupon, more laundry products are always handy and I love trying out new ones.

Bottom left are 3 soaps that I purchased from eBay, there are actually 2 Jasmin & Bergamote one is hiding under the other! The other 2 are Bonne Mere soaps in Lemon and Peach.

Above the peach soap is a sample of Philosophy’s purity made simple cleanser.

The other 3 items along the bottom are a sample of Chanel’s new perfume, Gabrielle. I love getting these samples through as it’s a great way of finding out which you could love and which you really couldn’t!

As I said in my last post about this years Advent Calendars I’ve treated myself to the ASOS Beauty Calendar 2017 and it arrived today. It is huge, beautiful and I can’t wait for December 1st so I can start opening it!

Remember to check out Paula’s Beauty Advent Calendar Guide 2017 for yourself to see if there are any you’d enjoy, she’s added at least 1 more over the weekend and yes, it is a very tempting one which I’m trying to not want too much!

Deliveries 12th September 2017


I’m so sorry to mention the ‘C’ word but D has been Christmas shopping (with my help) and we managed to find some DS games I have been trying to get for a while now at a really good price. There are 4 more under the 2 you can see, I put these on top as they are my favourites since with them I have all of the main story games, the ranger games and the Mystery Dungeon ones. Well, until 17th November I do anyway when another pair of main games are released 😀 The other 4 are from the My Sims and Bomberman series of games.

At the bottom is a carefully disguised trial product which D will be helping me with at some point this week.

One thing I’ve started doing recently is to keep a list of every package I know we are expecting and by when. It is going to make my life so much easier over the next few months with all the pre-ordering I have been doing but more on that in another blog post to come over the next few days 😉

Keyboard & Mouse as they come

This is my new #ArgosTesters product which I’ve been sent to test out and review! Watch out on their website over the next week for that to appear. I think this will be going on D’s PC as I have a wireless mouse I received from them a few months ago on mine so being the fair wife I am, he can have the nice shiny new thing to play with this time (and I get to play on his super-duper PC while I test them out 😉 )


The Aveda sample has come via SoPost and sounds really interesting with how fine my hair is. I’ll be trying this out over the weekend at some point and really hope it lives up to it’s billing!

The green bag underneath is once again one of my shopping trips, it’s a new coat again, the one that was delivered last week had a faulty popper on it so this is the replacement which is perfect and very cute 😀

And so ends another month – where is this year going to …. Oh yeah, visiting family and the hospital a lot!lol


Sorry about the photo, it looked OK on the camera’s screen! These are replacement rivets/buttons for jeans, you just hammer the 2 parts together (with the waistband in between) and ta-dah! they’re fixed – hope it’s as easy as it sounds 😀

My favourite pair of jeans have had a wobbly rivet/button on them for ages and finally last weekend it broke apart and I lost the main part as I didn’t notice it going (they are very loose on me now woohoo!) so I had a browse on eBay and found these cute ones with roses on them so now I just need to find the hammer 😀
