I Heart Mail!

Hello Everyone :)

I've recieved two fab things in the post lately that I wanted to share! A couple of posts ago I mentioned that I was coming into some luck and it must be true as I won another giveaway! I came second in Tanyas giveaway and I recieved my prizes this week...

So Tanya sent me a MaryKate and Ashley lipstick/gloss and liner set, this is a beautiful pink/nude colour, I like how it comes in a set so all the colours have been matched! I also got a pretty, nude revlon gloss in bare essentials which will be perfect with my building nude lipstick collection, an urban decay pina colada shot o gloss (which actually smells like the cocktail, yummy), a crown crease brush (i've wanted to try crown brushes for ages so i'm rather excited) and finally a beautiful blue/green/gold special fx nail polish which i'm excited to try as i'm typically a pink/nude/pastelle nail person so will be fun to experiment!

Thank you so so much Tanya, I love everything and can't wait to try it all! Also if you haven't already had a peek at Tanyas blog do it now, she is so lovely and I love reading her blog :)

I also mentioned that I've been doing my first US Swap over the last couple of weeks and the other day my package arrived...thank you so much Cait!! As neither of us had swapped before we decided to keep it quite small and then if it turned out well swap again! Here's what I recieved...

I recieved two NYX lipsticks in tea rose and flower, three NYX jumbo eye pencils in milk, blackbean and slate (blackbean isn't pictured as i'd left it in the car), CoverGirl Lash Blast and Physicians Formula Baked collection in baked sands. If you're in the middle of/thinking of doing a swap I definitely recommend having a look at the physicians forumla shadows, they are so pretty and are specifically made to be used wet or dry! Cait was lovely and included a hello kitty lipgloss (Love) and a beautiful ring which is exactly my taste...

I also took some swatches, all were taken in natural light as it's such a lovely day!

The first swatch is Flowers then Tea Rose...the photos go from happy to sad ha ha. I've never tried any NYX lipsticks before so I'm quite excited to try them out, I think tea rose especially is a beautiful colour! Also look at how pretty the physicians formula shadows are, these are swatched quite lightly so imagine the pigmentation when used wet! Thank you so much again Cait, I definitely look forward to swapping again in the future :)

Lastly, you lovely people always seem quite interested in what I pick up from Accessorize. I popped in yesterday and got...

Now that spring has...sprung i've broken out my pretty denim jacket so a couple of these pins will find a nice home there. And once again i've fed my flower hair clip obsession...I think I have actually bought these before but have disappeared, again perfect for spring!

Lots of Love
