Repurchase: Studded Boots

I have never ever, EVER repurchased a pair of shoes (UGG boots don't count!) apart from these. I picked up a pair about 9 months ago in the ASOS sale for the bargainous price of £9. They are originally from New Look and for me are the most perfect pair of boots I've ever owned. 

When I knew I needed a new pair, after wearing my first pair literally into the ground, they were no where to be found online! The original pair were falling apart, the sole peeling away and the insides were so painful on the bottom of my feet that I had to wear insoles but I just couldn't throw them away. I wear these boots pretty much everyday, they are smart enough for work but the spikes give them an edge. 

I'd set up alerts all over ebay for various searches that could bring up these boots and FINALLY after weeks I had an email and these were mine.

Have you had any items like this? What were they?

The incredible face mask by MayBeauty

You know those nose strips where when you peel them off you can see all the rubbish that's been in your nose? Yeah, with me? Well, welcome to the face mask version of this.

The May Beauty Incredible Facemask is one of those "it's gross but I can't stop looking at masks", seriously the amount of rubbish that came out of my skin was insane. Last week was my "approaching that time of the month" week and my skin was looking awful. There was no denying it and even makeup was looking really awful.

The worst area of my face was my chin and that's when I always know when I'm going to come on because I get a minimum of two huge spots that last around 4-5 days. The mask itself is jet black and feels so thick when you smear it on your face. It's really thick which is nice because I have had facemasks that I've put on, gone to sat down to chill out and then they drip all over me!

After about 30 minutes I peeled off the mask and so much rubbish came out with it - GROSS! Very easy to peel though and didn't leave any annoying little bits that I had to wash off myself.

Luckily I have a few samples of this so I plan to keep these and use them once a month, especially as my spots only hung around for 2 days which is better than 4!

I know I recently posted about giving my nails a break from shellac and various gels, however, I spotted Sensational in Boots a while back for 50% off and I decided to stock up. I already had the UV lamp so just picked up the top/base coat, colour and a glitter. 

I'm not going to go through "how to" gel nails because there are a gazillion tutorials out there at the moment and mine will not come close to them, however I really recommend the sensationail kit. 

These lasted a good 10 days on my nails, which included two days at the dogs home which is heavy going on nails. I've been really impressed with them.

There's nothing better than a bunch of flowers...

There's nothing better than a flower delivery to work? Am I right? Well I was lucky enough to have this gorgeous bunch* arrive at my office this week.  I must admit that it did feel kinda special even if they were almost a "to me love form me" delivery. 

They are from the summer range in Debenhams which is a selection of such beautiful flowers it was hard to choose just one bunch. I think for me it was the mixture of roses and peonies that drew me to this bunch.

They have taken pride of place on our dining room table which is the focal point of the main room in our flat and any visitors we've had have commented on the flowers. Might be something to do with the fact that they are arranged so much better than anything I could come up with. 

You can get 25% off any summer bunch with DFBLOG25
