This is my entry to simply-woman's competition to win either £50 of MAC makeup or £50 of clothing from New Look! To enter I had to post a blog post about the competition and my favourite product of 2013 which for me is Taylor Swift's newest fragrance, Taylor. I love the scent of this fragrance, it's really fruity and fresh. I also like the packaging as well as it's very different to the packaging of the other two fragrances. Yeah, so this is pretty much my entry, hope I win!

So it's another competition win! This time it's a bracelet! I won this from devanrylee on youtube and the bracelet itself is from K8 Create,a handmade jewellery company from a lady in Canada. It has 5 charms on it, a fish, the sun, a starfish, an umbrella and a heart and all are a kind of tarnished silver. The jewellery she sells are all one of a kind pieces made from a mix of vintage bits with modern embellishments. She has an etsy store here where you can buy some of the pieces.

So this is another competition win! I won this from KerryLovesGlam on youtube and it arrived last week. I have tried it a few times and so I thought I would do a little blog post showing you it!! The colour is amazing! It's a champagney neutral colour which, in itself is nothing particularly special but it has beautiful gold reflects of shimmer running through it which makes it really unique. The texture is really creamy and the pigmentation is great! It stays on my eyelids for ages and doesn't crease at all which is brilliant for me as I have really oily eyelids! These retail for £16 which is a little pricey but I think they are well worth it!! If you are looking for a cheaper alternative then Maybelline have their colour tattoos which are about £6 and still amazing!!

The reason I haven't posted for the past few days is because I have been away in Normandy! The pictures above are some of the highlights of my trip! The rose was in a florist in Bayeux and I just thought it was very cool! I mean, a multi-coloured rose!! The bread below it was bread we made in a boulangerie (bakery) called Boulangerie les CoPains which was very fun! The bread was entirely made by hand and the owners were very interesting, speaking in both french and english to try and help us learn some french! All of the pictures below that one until the picture of me and the goat were taken in the American Cemetry. That was an amazing experience to go there. The sheer quantity of the crosses which each represent a soldier who died was extremely moving. We walked down a little way to see Omaha Beach, we didn't actually go on the beach because we didn't have time but we walked down a little way and took lots of pictures.
We went to a goats cheese farm and met a very cute little baby goat who was adorable! The goats cheese wasn't particularly nice but it was a fun experience to see how it was made. The last picture was of me and some of my friends jumping off a wall by the cathedral in Bayeux on our last day. Going to Normandy with all of my friends was the best holiday I have ever had and I want to go back! It was nice to spend time with an amazing group of my friends, we all got on really well and had a generally amazing time!

It's so pretty!! Then on the tips I have LA Colors Sassy Sparkle which is so sparkley!!I really like this nail look so I thought I would share it with you! It's a really pretty spring/summer look with a touch of glitter!

I get lots of freebies, not because I'm a beauty blogger because I honestly don't get many freebies because of that, I get them simply because I ask for them or apply for them on promotions like the one above. This particular freebie I thought I would post about because it is a makeup freebie! A free luxury sample of the Le Volume de Chanel mascara! So basically follow this link here to got to the Stylist.co.uk website where you can fill in your details and get this sample sent out to you! I have never tried this mascara so I can't say whether it is good or not but, it's free! What's there to lose?
