Look What The Postman Brought…

Special Delivery


I must admit this week has been a toughy so to say I’m glad to see the weekend is a slight understatement. However, yesterday I arrived home a very happy gal indeed as news broke that the postman had delivered a special little pressie just for me *cue mass hysteria*

For those of you who missed my wailing and flailing last Friday night… I won my 1st EVER give-away!! Now if any of you are as unlucky as I am when it comes to raffles, give-aways, scratch cards and anything that requires a smile from Lady Luck you’ll understand my bellows of joy as I discovered ‘little ole me’ was announced the winner of a beautiful Benefit give-away competition from the lovely Melissa of Melissa Claire Leslie.

Melissa is a qualified graphic designer who shares a passion for blogging, so if travel, fashion, photography & beauty sounds your thing then do pop over, say hello and hit that ‘follow’ button to keep up with her fab features.

“Okay, what about the goodies?” I hear you hark!!

Settle back and I’ll give you a guided tour of what I received…

1) First thing my eyes locked upon was this gorgeous little presentation box… it also has a magnetic closure which makes it perfect for storing some little beauty trinkets & accessories in. A girl can never have too many pretty boxes, right?!

2) Inside the pretty little box I discovered this gorgeous mini cosmetic bag. We’re planning a few little mini-breaks this year so this will be the perfect travel solution for storing my ‘jolly hol’ make-up essentials. Could it BE any cuter?! *swoon*

3) Hidden inside my new mini Benefit bag (it’s like pass the parcel now!!) I spotted these yummy treats perched on top of a very cutely wrapped tissue package… who doesn’t love lolly pops & love hearts? * cue happy dance*


 4) My tissue package contained a few exceptionally exciting samples my skin has been itching to try. Two of the samples are from the SO RADIANT range:

Instant Comeback Facial Serum: An instant boost for youthful skin (just what I need right now!) which claims to make tired looking skin plumped, hydrated and feeling firmer.

It’s Potent Eye Cream: Fades dark circles & helps smooth fine lines for brighter younger looking eyes… I have a feeling I’ll wake up looking a decade younger tomorrow morning!

 Giveaway Goodies 3

5) My final sample is a trial of the infamous POREFESSIONAL: A silky, oil free PRO balm that quickly helps minimise the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin.

So there you have it, a guided tour of my give-away goodies. How lucky am I? I’m chomping at the bit to try each and every one of them. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated with how I get on in a few future review posts!

 *Apologies if the images are a tad blurry, I didn’t have time to whip out my hubby’s DSLR *Oo-err missus* So I had to settle for a few iPhone snaps instead.

Thanks again to the lovely Melissa who’s had me grinning like a Cheshire cat all week. My prize is every bit as beautiful as I imagined & I can’t wait to get trying my exciting new samples! How did you know I love blackcurrant lolly pops & Love Hearts so much?! Friday night treats = sorted 😉 hehe

Even Gomez was purring with excitement at the parcel revealing shenanigans…



Wishing you all a super weekend Beauty Buddies,

      • Awwwh Jen they sound adorable!! I love ginger tabbies, they’re renowned to be great house cats apparently 🙂 Our wee female cat Peppa is a bit like that too tho she’s more torty/brindle – isn’t bothered by strangers and will make herself know that she enjoys the attention 😀 Gomez however is terrified of grass… so you can imagine how ‘unique’ he is *rolls eyes * They’ve all got their own wee personalities, love it lol ❤ xo
