I've never tried a St. Tropez product before. There; I said it..... Tanning fans around the world may gasp in shock* (*sarcasm) but if I'm being honest I'm not a major tanner. I will apply it for occasions and the odd night out but other that that I'm not bothered. Today I'm going to review the St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow. Because it's such a hyped brand when it comes to fake tanning I was quite excited to give it a go.

Today I'm going to review for you a budget brand foundation I am very impressed with. It's NYC's All Day Long Smooth Skin Foundation. It's priced at....... wait for it....... just €3.99/£3.99. I say I'm very impressed.... I say it's only €3.99.... I believe you may be excited to read on!!?


NEGATIVES
NYC claim the foundation will give a "A smooth skin appearance which lasts up to 14 hours". Now after trying this for a full week I do have a drawback if it's longevity you're looking for in a foundation.

Dia daoibh,

Today's post is hopefully one that might help you save a few quid if you are interested in buying Real Techniques Brushes. I discovered iHerb after watching a fellow blogger and YouTuber  heyyyjune mentioning them in a video. Off I went to do some research and I'm so glad I did. I have saved quite a bit!

iHerb is an online store which sells nutritional supplements and other healthy products. The organisations is based in California. They sell eco-friendly, cruelty free and organic products at amazing prices.

 Real Techniques brushes are also available in store from Boots and online from places such as >Cloud 10 Beauty< but I got mine cheapest from iHerb.

Now onto what you all want to know..... the prices!
The following were my figures worked out: ...

Well halloooo there!! Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2013 will be a great one for all my readers. So; the last time I spoke to you all was Christmas eve with my New Year's Giveaway Post (which is still open for another 2 weeks if you would like to enter). 

Since then, Santa has been and gone to my house, I have spent time with family and eaten lots of gorgeous food and drank equally as gorgeous wine! I tweeted today that "My body is back to work/reality but my brain...... is not." Does anyone else feel like this!!? It's not a negative thing, I just realise it's time to snap back to "reality" now and make the most of the New Year.
