I cannot pass off my window shopping wishlist pieces as essentials, hard as I try to justify that black glittery nail varnish will make me better at my job, a more affectionate girlfriend or attentive daughter.
Equally, I cannot claim to be at the top of my game when it comes to beauty trends. I'm quite happily low-maintenance, with my trusty liquid eyeliner flicks and BB Cream love affair. But, when I'm presented with coconut scented bubble bath(!!), the world will stop for this, kids.
Here are my current lust-products from the Debenhams beauty range. Nearly a year or so ago I was offered a PR job with Rituals which, at the time, wasn't right for me. However, since being introduced to this brand it has become a firm favourite in my bathroom cabinet, especially this juicy night cream which my skin loves.
I've also cultivated an unhealthy love affair with Illamasqua ever since a Meadowhall Style School event back in Sheffield. This particular "Creator" colour will slot into my collection quite nicely, though I may have to top up the glitter factor with a blogger-favourite Models Own!
So, today I'm heading to Birmingham to hang out with some of my blogger pals, which will mainly involve eating too many burgers and dancing to Morrissey until the early hours on Sunday morning. Keep up with our shenaningans on Twitter, and I'll no doubt be hibernating until Monday, so more then I expect!
