They See Me Hauling... Big Beauty Haul and gift idea for tweenagers

I haven't been shopping in FOREVER so when let loose today I went a bit mad  I think.

What Did I get? - Andrea Fulerton Gemstone Overcoat, Barry M Pink Iridescent, Barry M Limited Edition Nail Effects, Nail Stickers, Quickies, Barry M Dazzle Dust in Pink Gold, Sleek Lipstick in Cherry, Allura Decorative Nail Art Kit and Lypsyls

I'll swatch each product I bought in due course, but here's some close ups for now

I got these nail stickers and Quickies for a pound each in Savers. I love that shop!

Barry M Pink Iridescent - this caught my eye while I was looking at the Barry M stand. I don't think it will come out like this on the nail though. I'll show you later.

Andrea Fulerton Gemstone Overcoat - I also saw this in Superdrug and it caught my eye. I'm definitely going to have to try this over natural nails and over colours.

This is Sleek True Colour lipstick in Cherry. I really wanted the new Cranberry one I've seen other bloggers mention but sadly it's only available in a gift set with a blusher and a kohl pencil I don't want. The kohl pencil is berry coloured for god's sakes - who wants red lined eyes?! Yeah I love the "I've been crying this Christmas" look.

Finally this huge nail art kit was a pound from the Pound Shop! Amazing! It will be fab for the little girl I babysit for.

Talking of presents for teenagers and tweenagers, I have a couple of girls I look after who are getting to awkward ages so I thought I'd make them a "treat box" for Christmas with lots of cheap things in they'll love

Inside the box: Nail kit, glow stick bracelets, chocolates, diamante earphones - all the pound shop, nail stickers and beads from Savers. I also got one girl a book token in hers as she loves reading too.

I decorated the box myself in wrapping paper but so you can open it (don't ask why - too much time on my hands but it's really cute

1. Find an ugly box

 If it's a box that comes apart and goes flat - even better! This one sadly doesn't.

2. Glue round all the sides

3. Stick on paper and there you go!




  1. I've got the same Pound Shop Nart Art set and it's brilliant!

  2. I can't believe you're going to give away the nail art set, I'd definitely be keeping it for myself! haha!

    Those nail polishes are all so pretty too!

  3. Love the shade of the lipstick, I'm with you on the berry coloured eyeliner though - don't think I could pull that off!
    Good on ya for making the gift boxes, great idea

  4. That's such a cute gift idea for young girls - I'm sure they will love it!

  5. I think the color of nail stick is beautiful.It look like canny.
    I like it , thanks for your information.

  6. Nail sticker is a great idea for gift. The lipstick color looked very nice. I agree with the berry colored kohl pencil, which I hope the make-up company won't make it a package and sell it separately in the future. The gift-wrapping also nice and very detailed.
