Discount Codes: Black Friday/Cyber Weekend

How crazy is this Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal?  Not quite sure I agree with the UK 'adopting' it, as it has no relevance to us (linking with Thanksgiving in the US which we don't celebrate).  I just think we are in more need to celebrate our own 'holidays' rather than picking and choosing the popular ones and saying things like "happy holidays" which we didn't used to.  St. Andrews Day on the 30th anyone?  So I wasn't going to write this post as many shops changed their dates and some didn't want anything mentioned until the minute it started, however I've put all the discounts together in one post for you.  Helpful I know!  These are some of my affiliate companies and the easiest way was to go through them alphabetically and methodically and list them for you. Yes I know there are other places doing discounts too, but there's a limit to how much of my day can be spent on this!  This post took a long time to compile, so please don't copy and paste it into your own blog, instead link to this post.

New Look Unicorn Clutch
Yo, yo, yo, prettiest unicorn on the planet here! At least that is what my human Mummy calls me (usually followed with "yes you are, yes you are"), she says you'll all be mimicking the voice she does at that point. I don't say much back, for fear of bursting my stitches, but I can see how much I mean to her.  She says there's no way anyone will fit all their crap in here, not sure I like the sound of that, but then she does that loving, drooling look and everything is good again.  Mum says you'll meet my brother soon.  He's kinda mysterious, all glossy black with a gold mane.  Don't tell him this, but Mummy prefers me to him, I can just tell.  Plus I change from blue to pink depending on the light, pretty cool huh?  She says you'll want to know that you can buy me from ASOS here and New Look here for £12.99 and that everyone needs one.  She even has a 20% off code for all full price items at ASOS that she wants to share with you, because she's kind like that.  You need to insert the code CYBERWKND20, it starts now and ends 8am 2nd December.

Love Moschino Charming Snow Tote Bag
Happy Friday!  Today I have a bag I bought months ago, that I'd almost forgotten to show you.  I'm sure I've said this before but the Love Moschino 'Charming' girls range just keeps getting better.  I literally want every single design they release.  This seasons snow scene is absolutely adorable.  I love the chic wee lady in her fluffy red coat and hat, walking through the snow in her high heels.  Look, she even has a big ring on her finger and is carrying a little clutch!  "Love Moschino" is written in the snow and there's a church and some buildings in the night skyline with snowflakes falling all around.

Anna Sui lipstick and swatch
Hello my lovelies, how are you today?  I have the most wonderful lipstick to show you.  Isn't that just the prettiest thing you've ever seen?  Even my Mum was impressed and she doesn't wear makeup!

Update: La Roche Posay Effaclar - Anti Blemish System

You may recall I reviewed the new La Roche-Posay Effaclar Anti-Blemish System* back in September.  I'd been using the set for around 6 weeks at that point.  My results hadn't been overly good by then, but I felt at least 12 weeks were required before making final judgements.  I've now completed my trial and this is a little update as to how I got on.  Just to remind you, I was solely using these products, wearing no makeup and applying nothing else to my face other than lip-balm and eye cream/gel, for the fairest possible test conditions.  The box contains 'up to 6 weeks' supply and I did have to purchase another moisturiser around week 9.  I still have a little toner left and a little bit (less than the toner) of the cleanser, so for value for money I think it's great.    La Roche Posay Effaclar Anti Blemish System Products

David Emanuel: Teal Lace Dress

Growing up, I was obsessed with Sindy dolls, like proper 'all I ever wanted' obsessed.  Royal couturiers 'The Emanuels' (David and Elizabeth, famous for designing that wedding dress for Princess Diana) produced a collection of Sindy outfits. Beautiful full length, frilled, taffeta gowns with velvet capes and coats all shrunk down to miniature size for my favourite doll (don't worry this is leading somewhere). Even as a small child, I knew those outfits were epic. I even had a VHS (probably still do somewhere) of a Sindy documentary (featuring David and Elizabeth talking about their dolly creations) that I watched over and over, until it got a bit 'jumpy' in bits. Nowadays David is probably known outside of the fashion world for I'm A Celebrity (I didn't watch it) and he also has a clothing line at Bonmarche. David Emanuel Bonmarche Teal Lace Dress

Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day Shampoo Product
Hmmm, a bit of a mixed review for this one. I've been a fan of Soap & Glory skin and body products for years, but this was my first time trying the Glad Hair Day Shampoo £5.50.

Irregular Choice: Gold Bunny & Unicorn Heels

Erm, ok, so I was kinda a lot naughty on Friday and ordered three pairs of the new gold heels from Irregular Choice. You know you've spent a lot when your order is put on hold until you confirm your details, muahaha! I've actually been saving money for once though; this never leaving the house malarkey has a gold silver lining. As usual they were released at 12pm and it doesn't happen every time, but I got myself into a right old panic. I just felt there was a lot of hype surrounding these, IC had only released images of two of the seven styles and I just had a feeling I was going to miss out on the ones I wanted.  I barely slept the night before and felt sick most of the morning.   Irregular Choice Gold Heel Boxes
