I received my Valentines Glossy Box today so i thought i'd share with you all what was in my box this month.
I love the packaging, the box is a hot vibrant pink, beautifully wrapped inside too. I'm a sucker for nice packaging plus the boxes make fabulous storage boxes.
* Clarins Extra-Firming Night Cream
* Murad Skin Perfecting Primer
* Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream
* First Aid Beauty Mosturizer
* Eyeko Pink Eyeliner
I'm not too excited by my beauty box this month. Considering the hype to the build-up of this months box i was quite disappointed if i'm honest. I found it quite bland and not at all *Valentines*, apart from the box that is....
I'm looking forward to trying the Clarins samples, but pink eyeliner? That sooo isn't me.
I do love the concept of it the Glossy Box, a surprise package each month is always nice, so i will be carrying on with my subscription for the time being.

Love them or Loathe them, UGG’s are the ultimate winter warming footwear to keep your feet cosy, snugly and warm.
I bought my first pair of UGGs around 3-4 years ago when the UGG craze was at it's highest. I first spotted them in a magazine when Kate Moss and Sienna Miller were pictured wearing them out anf about and can remember clearly thinking I hadn’t ever seen anything like the footwear at all, nothing compared.
I personally love my UGG’s and definitely wouldn’t be without them. Great quality, they last ages and they’re the only footwear which keep my feet dry and snug. The inside of the boot is lined with Sheepskin which makes your feet feel extra warm, perfect for the colder weather and not to mention the comfortability of the boot.
You can wear your UGGs with or without socks, I prefer to wear a thin pair of cotton socks with mine but that's down to personal preference, i've gone barefoot in them once and the feeling was just the same, they didn't rub my feet either.
The UGGs at £175 are quite expensive, but definitely worth the money in my opinion, the ones I bought all those years back still look as new. My top tip would be to spray your UGGs with a water resistant spray before wear, this protects them from any water damage/snow etc.
It's true what they say that UGGs are more generously sized, therefore it's recommended you downsize a size, my advice would be to try your regular size and downsize a size before committing to buy and see what fits and feels best for you.
You can now buy UGGs in various colours and styles, for me i'll always be a classic kind of girl and the original ones are always the ones which appeal to me the most.
There are a lot of fake UGGs out there so just make sure and check beforehand that you're buying from a genuine stockist.
My UGGs are cosy, warm, the grip is fab and I definitely wouldn't be without them throughout the colder months, an investment worth having.
My favourite are the short classic UGGs, I want the Grey ones next which are pictured above from http://www.sarenza.co.uk/and priced at £175.

Hello Ladies, i hope you're all having a lovely week.
As anyone see the above advert for Before Meets after for the new Style Network Channel on Sky TV? It looks just like my kind of favourite weekly tv viewing!
For those of you who don't yet know, the programme is a New Year makeover show. It ranges from making over people beauty wise, fashion wise, fitness, house makeovers, weddings and following in the life of your favourite celebrities, the favourite foursome from sex and the city, Tia & Tamera the famous twins take on motherhood and marriage, supernanny every tear, tantrum along with every transformation....... i could go on but i shall stop there as the list is endless.
The show is varied and i'm sure will have something for each individuals personal tastes. I for one can't wait to watch, is anyone else?
This is a Sponsored Post but in no way whatsover does it dictate my thoughts, my opinion is my own and i for one am genuinely looking forward to watching.

I bought the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette last week so i thought i'd share a few pictures with you all.
I love, love, love the shades. Quite similar to the first palette yes but there is a noticeable difference.
I got lots of use out of my first palette so i know i'll get as much use out of this one too. The first Naked palette was £28 and this one is priced at £36, so £8 more expensive this time round.
The palette comes with a lipgloss which i'm yet to try and a eyeshadow brush, which i feel is a nice added extra touch. The palette also contains a larger mirror which i'm sure will come in handy, especially whilst on the move.
What are your thoughts on the palette?

I bought my first Mulberry Handbag yesterday and i got the East West Bayswater, which i love.
It's a classic bag which will hopefully last me throughout the years. All i need now is a lovely Mulberry Wallet to match, maybe also the Oak Bayswater and that will be my collection complete..... ;).
Hope you've all had a lovely weeekend xx
