Kiko Haul

Hands up, who else is a sucker for affordable make up with cute packaging? I’m seeing a few hands up… Perfect. Not just me then!

So Steve and I went shopping last week, only to find a present, and I happened to stumble across a big sale in Kiko Cosmetics… I couldn’t just walk past the shop, that would be rude!

So I’m having a gander at the pretty things, and this sales woman comes over and gives me a basket… This can only mean trouble!

Steve and I spent ages looking at the stands, and I made a few choices. Here is what I got…

So all this for the grand total of £23. Not at all bad. Having looked at the website at the full price of these products, I should have parted with a total closer to £40. But the sale was incredible and the discounts were very tempting.

The first thing I picked up was as the Pencil Lip Gloss in Shade 12. It’s a gorgeous deep red/brown shade, which would ordinarily be perfect for Autumn. It’s a gorgeous creamy consistency and I personally think it would be a stunning shade to wear all year round. Being a pencil it’s convenient for hand bags and travel bags, and glides on so easily.

(RRP £3.90, purchased for £2.70)

Next up is the Eyebrow Marker in Shade 06. It’s a tattoo effect pen which I can only assume its long lasting…I’ll have to try it to see. It’s a lovely brown colour, and I wanted to step away from black as it can be too heavy, especially for work. So this is a welcome addition to my make up collection.

(RRP £5.90, purchased for £4.10)

The next product is a Full Coverage Concealer. Now I could be quite happy to try every concealer going as I have quite dark circles under my eyes. This is such a thick concealer, and when I swatched it on my hand, it was amazing. I was so stunned to see my hand become so light and the area I applied it was fully covered. I hope its the same for under my eyes…. It’s in Shade 01, and there were many shades for all different skin types.

(RRP £7.50, purchased for £5.20)

Here is the beautiful Cream Crush in Shade 04. Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s a lovely light cream in a dark chocolate brown colour. It’s a perfect eye primer, or a stand alone colour for the eyelids. I love this! I highly recommend this product!

(RRP £6.90, purchased for £3.40)

I then went to the eyeshadow section, as I have tried these before and love them. They are very versatile and blend together so easily. They are a velvet consistency, and apply so smoothly. The colours are just beautiful. I could have quite easily got more than these 3, but that would be greedy! The shades are (from top to bottom), 08, 11 and 02.

(RRP £2.50 each, purchased for £1.70)

Lastly, I got a nail varnish. I was so intrigued by this colour. It’s a gorgeous teal green, but I love it. I think it will be prefect for my toe nails when I got on holiday in April. Its a nail varnish. I don’t really have anything else to say about it…. Haha.

(RRP £4.90 purchased for £2.50)

So there it is… A little shopping haul from a wonderful company. I love Kiko and will happily go back and get some more in the future. Have you got anything from the Kiko Range? Do you have an recommendations? Let me know in the comments!

See you in my next post,

Holiday Haulin’

Hey! Look at me!! I’m starting to get on board with this blog thingy! Aren’t you all lucky?!

So I am off on my holidays and have, of corse, been doing a spot of shopping in preparation.
Nothing too major – but I hit the sales and have found a few things to take away with me. I wanted to share!!
So firstly, to my holiday shop hot spot, Primark!

I grabbed a few things for myself, and for Luke. I know my boy has more clothes than I do. But just like me, I wanted him to have some new things to take on his holiday.

I really liked these T-shirts. I decided to get them in 18-24 months so he can grow into then and they will last him well into the summer. It always becomes difficult to know which size to get for babies as they grow so fast.
So to be on the safe side, I always go a size bigger!

Steve also found this Batman rain suit in Tesco! We are very excited about little man exploring the beach and not getting too wet and cold. With the added amazing bonus that is Batman!!! I love to explore rock pools and caves, looking for crabs and fish. I can’t wait for Luke to join me! He’s got his wellies…can we go now please??


Now my son is a HUGE fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, which you can catch on Disney Junior….

So as this is his holiday too, I had to get him a suitcase!! This came from Amazon for £21, and also comes with a back pack, swimming bag and wallet! He is set!
We also found this awesome Jake sun hat! He will easily look like he is sponsored by Jake, but he loves him!!

Last thing for Luke is this gorgeous jacket my mum spotted in a charity shop this week. It still has the original JoJo Maman Bebe label on it, suggesting it has never been work. And the original price tag of £32. My mum got this jacket for £1.99! Charity shops are absolute treasure troves – I never leave one empty handed!


Now my stuff – which has an added game of ‘Spot the Theme’…

Firstly, this amazing Minneapolis Baseball inspired shirt – I have wanted one of these for ages! And I finally decided to give in and treat myself. It’s gorgeous! And a bargain at £8!!


Next, this Brooklyn long vest top – now if you are familiar with my YouTube videos, you’ll know I always wear 2 shirts – it’s a personal preference, but I love layering. Always have done. So this shirt will look perfect with a white, cream or black shirt underneath.


Can you see a theme yet? Maybe my next purchase will help…

USA inspired socks! I you know me, I muddle all of my socks together – and when they are of a similar theme like these, they don’t look too odd! Haha…

For some reason, I had a big America theme shop – and I didn’t actually realise until I got home and looked at my new things.

Also, check out my amazing Dalmatian pjs! I got them in a ridiculously large size – but I find Primark sizes to be smaller than other places anyway, plus some have a tendency to shrink slightly in the wash.

Also, the bigger they are, the longer they are in the leg – which is one feature I struggle with! I have a 35′ inside leg – I find it very hard to find trousers long enough!

We did some shopping in some charity shops too – I love reading on holiday – I’m not sure why I read when I’m away, but not when I’m at home. Odd.
So these books were £1 each! It’s unlikely I’ll finish one, although I’ll take the 2 thrillers just in case.


Lastly, a trip to Superdrug to stock up on shampoo and conditioner and some face packs. We’re going away with Steve’s family, so the possibility of a girly night with my beautiful sister in law made me get some trusty packets of my favourite mud packs. These were on 4 for 3 at 99p each!


So hopefully I’ll bring you another blog before I go away on my holiday. Maybe a review – I have so many products!
