I saw this make up bag in Next last week and couldn't resist it. I thought it was really cute and of course I had to have it. I do need another make up bag though, honestly (crosses fingers behind back). It was only £4.50 and I thought it would be ideal for storing my every day make up. I always think this is a great idea and soon after the bag becomes so full that it necessitates me buying another one, or at least having a good clear out and deciding what I actually need in my every day make up bag.
What things do you find hard to resist?

Here is what I bought:
All are old favourites of mine- Banana shampoo and conditioner, Green Apple Bath and Shower Gel and I also got 2 samples. One of which I asked for which was the Cucumber Cleanser and the assistant gave my daughter her own sample of Satsuma Body Lotion which I have never tried before but it smells devine! For anyone who doesn't know the Body Shop will give you a sample of any product you ask for. They have little sample pots which they will fill up for you. An awesome way of trying out their stuff before buying as I find their stuff can be quite expensive. So definitely worth remembering if you want to try something:)

Everybody loves a freebie and this offer is brilliant because you don't have to spend much to get it!! Bonus for me is that I use Bodyform anyway so I can stock up on these and they will be used.
Bodyform are giving away a Jemma Kidd Make Up School Lipgloss worth £10 with promotional packs of Bodyform. I got mine in Tesco where they are currently on offer 2 for £2. They normally retail for £1.30 per pack so this is a good deal anyway without the lipgloss. Add the lipgloss in and it's an awesome deal:)
There are 2 shades to collect so I got both of them. The lipglosses are limited edition and are both really wearable pink shades. Check out what it says on the Bodyform website here
I have never tried any Jemma Kidd products. It's not easily accessable to me and I think it's quite expensive. These lipglosses are quite small and I don't think I'd spend £10 on one of these. However I am open minded and who knows these lip glosses could lead me on to a Jemma Kidd addiction:)
Have you any Jemma Kidd recomendations for me?

For me it's laziness most times. Yes I am the one who will take the extra 10 minutes in bed and skip makeup some days:) I regularly do the morning school run sans makeup. Wait a minute who am I trying to kid? I ALWAYS do the morning school run sans makeup. Heck sometimes I even do the home time school run without it lol!! I figure there isn't much point in rushing to look good for the morning school run. I like to come home and apply my make up somewhat more leisurely:) I have even been known to take the kids to school with my pj top still on under my coat but shhh don't tell anyone;0
I must add that I do always wear makeup to work but on occasions when the extra 10 minutes in bed becomes 20 minutes I have been known to take my make up with me and apply it at work:)
So do you prefer to never leave the house without your makeup on or do you love your bed just a little too much? Fess up here:)

Yesterday I got my highlights done again. I was badly in need of this. I normally go a bit darker for winter but this time I have gone quite a bit darker than normal. I'm loving it so far!! I love how straight the hairdresser can blow dry it:) I can never get it looking this good without my trusty GHDs lol. Next task is to tint my eyebrows a bit darker as I think it will look good with my new darker hair:)

Here is my first LOTD with my recent purchases from Next. I went out last night to see a friend who moved to Australia 21 months ago and is home for a wee break at the minute.
