Week in Post #20

I haven't done one of these posts for ages, I've been trying to behave myself and not buy anything! It all went a bit wrong this week though...

My November Boudoir Prive box, you can read the full review here.

My November GlossyBox.

Cheap Smells sent me some products to review. I will be doing a post about cheap smells as well as reviewing all of these products individually.

Some washing up liquid to review for Tesco Home Panels.

Escentual are trying to get a Welsh blogging community going, they contacted me asking if I'd be interested to which I replied yes :) They kindly sent me this voucher for a complimentary Clarins Tri Active Body Treatment at their central pharmacy in Cardiff.

Eeeeekkkkk!! I've got the UD Naked palette! I used buyapowa for the first time and got this for £25. I'm in love!

My ELF order finally arrived. I ordered it on the 19th November and received it yesterday (26th) very unlike their normal speedy service. I was quite annoyed as I did place this order a while back and thought it had gone through, but it didn't.

I applied to be part of Best British Bloggers a while back. They contacted me this week to let me know that my application had been successful and that I could pick a product to review from Joe Browns. I picked this amazing cardigan*. I emailed Kate with my choice on Wednesday evening and received it Friday, impressive!

What goodies have you been receiving lately? Did you give into the buyapowa UD temptation?


  1. The deal had closed by the time I saw it so missed out of the naked palette !! So gutted! Enjoy :)

  2. It really is amazing! I was the same, I started regretting it as soon as I hit the buy button but I don't regret it at all now x

  3. It really has been, like Christmas!
    I've never used cheap smells before but am so glad to have found them! x

  4. It is a perfume atomiser :) I'm hoping to snap the photos this weekend for the reviews, its too dark when I finish work now annoyingly!
    I'm in love with the Naked palette! x

  5. Sorry for the spoiler! I hope you've received your box by now and are enjoying it :)
    The naked palette was such a good deal and I am in love with it! xx

  6. Thanks, It really is lovely, super cosey and chunky :) xx

  7. That is a fab idea Gemma! I'm now following the list.
    Going together sounds ace :) They have extended my voucher so that I can use it in January because I really don't think I'll have time to use it before Xmas.
    When does yours expire? xx

  8. Isnt the Naked palette just amazing? I wasnt sure whether or not the price would be worth it when I was buying it but Im so glad I did now. You can do so many looks with it! x

  9. Great week for you lady! I received a bank statement and a necklace. It is a beautiful necklace though! I love cheap smells! Ive used that site so many times before its great! x

  10. Ahh the naked palette, I've managed to resist buying it ... so far! Is that a perfume atomiser than cheap smells sent you? Looking forward to reading your reviews on the products! x

  11. The naked palette went so so quickly on buyapowa, i had one anyway but i was going to post about it and didnt even get a chance! Looks like youve got some lovely bits this week!
    Im pretty sure that is this months boudoir prive box at the top but i havent opened mine yet so i had to try and ignore that part of the post so it was still a surprise, so difficult, haha!

  12. I love that cardigan, it looks so cozy!

  13. oooh I'm setting up a list on Twitter for welsh fashion/beauty bloggers- http://twitter.com/#!/Gemma_DS/swfbb then I thought we could use the #swfbb when we tweet about events and blogging stuff?
    We should go to the spa the same time and get a coffee, love it down Wellfield Rd :) The escentuals thing sounds ace, nice little community.
