Maybelline 3 for 2 deal in Boots – Total saving £38.97!

I love a good deal and will share with you guys when I come across one! All about the sharing! I went to boots to top up the make up because I was running low on foundation.. then I seen there’s 3 for 2 on all Maybelline make up! Which was perfect because I read great reviews on the Fit Me foundation and I wanted to try it.. here’s a picture of everything I got..


Get this.. because I got 9 products 3 of them were free.. 

doesn’t stop there as the Super Stay sprays were all free as well because of a Maybelline event they had on.. with every 3 Maybelline product bought you got 1 spray for free. 


So I paid £40.94, saving £17.97 

Plus I got the sprays for free that are priced at £6.99 each according to boots.co.uk.. 

Total saving £38.97!

Plus points on my boots card! Love it!

Ef þið eruð að koma til UK mæli ég með því að kíkja í Boots. Það eru svo oft tilboð í gangi og öll flottustu drug store merkin eru þar! Meðal annars Nyx, Sleek og Barry M! 

Style essentials palette 

Seen this in TK Maxx doing my Christmas shopping and this one came home with me. Pleasantly surprised for the £6.99 it cost! There’s about three slightly pigmented colors, the rest is all matte and I love it. I use matte colors religiously, don’t get me wrong I do love a sparkle but the usual eyeshadow suspects always matte. The blush colors are standard pinky colors and my fav is the lightest one (on the left) that I will definitely use as a light highlighter. 

Þessi palletta fylgdi mér heim úr TK Maxx þegar ég átti í rauninni að vera að versla jólagjafir en ég meina.. mjög mött með nokkrum shimerruðum augnskuggum. Kinnalitirnir mjög basic bleikir með einum mjög ljósum sem ég sé alveg fyrir mér nota sem léttan highlighter. Mjög sátt fyrir £6.99 sem þessi kostaði mig!

Stobo castle Spa – must visit

I was overly happy when I was offered to go to Stobo castle for two nights as I oh so needed a little vacay! I didn’t know a lot about the place other then it was very chilled out and you wore your dressing gown most of the day.. sold!

Stobo castle is just outside the lovely town Peebles in the Scottish borders region. The view from our room was breathtaking as all the winter colours were just perfect.


I had two treatments and got them both as a birthday present, a full body sugar glow body scrub and a mother to be full body massage so you can imagine my excitement. We arrived around lunch time and my Scrub was that afternoon and my oh my was it amazing! My massage was the next day and was just perfect. They have so many facilities you can use freely without getting any treatments, I suggest you have a look here.

Since I am 33 weeks pregnant I used the pool quite a lot as its so refreshing popping in it to feel the weight off the bump lifted for a while. The pool has loungers on the side where you can relax, read a magazine or book with the scenery in front of you. There is also a tropical shower with heavy droplets which I loved – you can also change the setting to cold rain water. After my massage I headed to the relaxation suite where you relax and I had a great snooze there as it is completely quiet with relaxing music playing.

There is a japanese garden just down the road where the winter colours were, again, so beautiful. It was a bit cold but just the perfect winter walk weather.

There is a true gentleman that works there at breakfast and lunch who is an absolut diamond. He is an older man who truly cares and loves what he does. James has been given the title “Employee of the decade” as he has worked there for 16 years. My love for older people grew even bigger when I met him!

The decor is just stunning and everything is so calm and peaceful so you can’t leave other then very relaxed and rejuvenated. I would stay for two nights so you can fully enjoy all the facilities, I spent most my time in the pool but can’t wait to go back and try out the sauna and steam room.

I have definitely caught the Stobo bug!

Tengdamamma bauð mér og mágkonu minni í spaferð í Stobo kastala við landamæri Skotlands og Englands. Ég mæli sko alfarið með svona slökun í enda meðgöngu þar sem ég kom heim svo ótrúlega endurnærð og fersk. Ég fékk meðgöngu heilnudd svo í afmælisgjöf og sykurskrúbb sem algerlega endurnærði mig! Það er svo margt annað í boði til að njóta án þess að panta einhverjar meðferðir, getið skoðað síðuna þeirra hér

Ég notaði sundlaugina óspart til að létta á bumbunni og slakaði á á bekkjunum við bakkan þar sem útsýnið er stórkostlegt. Það er japanskur garður rétt hjá sem var svo ótrúlega fallegur með alla vetrarlitina í trjánum og gróðri. Stíllinn yfir öllu er einstakur og svo ótrúlega mikil ró yfir öllu, enda eyðir maður öllum deginum í baðslopp! 

Ég hakka ótrulega til að fara aftur!

Real techniques and Sleek addiction

Yeah, I said it. I am so addicted it is unreal. I have already let everyone know I want Sleek palettes and Real techniques brushes for my birthday next month – oh yes I have. I can’t wait to sparkle like a disco ball!

I bought this tapered brush from the Bold Metals Collection and I use it for highlighters. The angle of the brush is perfect for them cheekbones that want to reach the ceiling, or at least you want them to look like they do. Not to mention how gorgeous it looks! Rose gold is my absolute favorite and has been since the Michael Kors watches made an appearance and that seems ages ago now. I love how the hairs are slightly pink at the bottom as well.

And with that brush I bought this perfect highlighter palette from Sleek make up. Its called solstice and has the most perfect colours. The purple is my favourite which is a baked powder one, the brown one has a creamy finish which I love as well. The orange and the yellow reminds me of Mary Lou minizer which is not a bad thing as it was my fav before this beauty.

Killer combo! Love it!

Já ég elska þessa pallettu frá Sleek, hún heitir Solstice og er bara svo gullfalleg! Mjög viðeigandi lýsing þar sem hún kemur í ofsa fínu gullboxi. Já og burstinn er svo fullkomin til að dýfa í hana. Burstinn er alger snilld í laginu í einmitt highlightera. Ég nota yfirleitt ekkert burstana sem fylgja með svona og myndi henta mér vel ef þeim yrðu bara slepp yfir höfuð.. Mæli með þessu! Ég get með engu móti lýst þessum mismunandi áferðum á íslensku en einn er kremkenndur og svo eru hinir meira eins og púður.. jú jú ég gat það víst!

Ég keypti þetta í boots – getið skoðað heimasíðuna þeirra hér
– eru með ótrúlega mikið af flottum drugstore merkjum.
