NET HAULING - a few things I picked up this week

Just to share some web purchases that I am thrilled about receiving this week! I'm not normally a web purchase kind of person as I always like to check things out in person but I couldn't resist these......

I've always wanted a Juicy Couture gold charm bracelet - actually the London series one with a red telephone box is my ultimate lemming! - but I find them quite expensive. However, this gold lucky charm bracelet was on sale on ASOS and so I took the plunge. It comes in a really nice leather embossed box and the bracelet is lovely - just the right type of gold, the right chunkiness and I love the discreet Juicy Couture embossing on some of the charms. A new found fave.

Another absolute new found fave is the new Sigmax HD Synthetic trio set of brushes on offer over at Sigma. I have never tried any Sigma brushes before though always read and watched all the glowing and positive reviews for the brand. I have used the angled and flat top brushes already and LOVE them. I am a huge huge advocate of synthetic brushes and these are soft, dense and substantial. I will definitely do a review of these on my YT channel - want to play with them a bit first. Customer Service was fab - it arrived within 4 days of ordering and came with a travel SE25 brush (their version of the SE 217 I think).

I also got on Amazon the new Lauren Conrad's Style book. I LOVE it! I am a fan of Lauren's - her elegance, her style, her professionalism, her loyalty (although I will say that she can be too quick at judgement but that's cos she has high standards and expectation!). Will definitely do a review of this too as she has some gorgeous makeup pix.

Today I then received as part of a Makeupalley swap an item that has been on my swaplist for absolute ages - MAC Peaches blush. It looks like such a gorgeously happy
blush - just what is needed to carry me through the now increasingly darker days and nights! And cos I love the Sigmax brushes as a newbie and having them for less than 48 hrs I wanted to take a closer (though crappy) web cam pic of it again!:

Just wanted to share what I was excited about this week.....what have you hauled this week? xxx


  1. Oooohhh!! Great haul!
    I'm fascinated by the Sigma brushes now. What's their url please?

    The Aussie dollar against the greenback is particularly strong now, so the past few days I've been hauling like crazy!

    The Sephora F&F is on in a couple of days so I got myself the following:

    Clarisonic brush
    NARS eyeshadow duo - Melusine
    NARS blush - Sex Appeal
    Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment
    NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
    Korres Lip Butter - wild rose

    From, I got the mini eye brights palette.

    From I got the L'Wren Gris nailpolish.

    From transdesign I got the OPI Burlesque nail polish collection and the China Glaze Happy Holidays nail polish collection.


  2. Hi,

    I can't find any other way to contact you, so please feel free to delete this comment once you've read it.

    I have used your Youtube review of Shu Eumura on my blog as part of some posting on oil based cleansers I am doing. Here is the link

    I hope you are happy with the use I have made of what you have done, but obviously I'll respect your wishes if you want me to take it off.

    Thanks for all your blogging and youtubing, I have enjoyed what I have seen so far and will be back to look at a bit more.

    Dear Colin

    I've seen your comment on my blog and whilst I understand your good intention and that you feel my review on Shu's oil cleanser was informative. However, I'm not comfortable with my YT video or blog posts being posted on other sites other than my own - so pse remove them from your website.

    Thanks for leaving a post on my website about it - and pse contact me in future before content is taken from my sites/YT channel. I might be more comfortable next time.


  4. i love these sigma brushes!! I just came across your youtube channel :)
