The other day, I mentioned about the Philips Lumea Precision being on offer, with money off at Boots, online only... well today that deal just got better as not only is the discount larger (it's actually down to £261.99 now), there's an offer on today only, that gives another automatic 10% off electrical beauty, taking the final purchase price to £235.79. Plus you get your £23.57 worth of advantage card points to boot. What an absolute bargain, non?
I expect this will also apply to any other electrical beauty items that are discounted already too - so if you've been eying something up already, get yourself over there to see if you can save even more today!
After having a quick scan on there, I noticed some items that could be worth a look for you/loved ones:
So this is the one most people wait for every year, the Soap & Glory Boots Star Gift of the Week better than half price offer, this year it's named 'The Yule Monty Limited Edition Jonathan Saunders Bag'.
It's popular every year, because of the fab products and huge saving, and so I expect it will sell out very quickly, so go get it now... go quick. x
"Start with a
bottle of the legendary SUGAR CRUSH™ Body Wash, add a big tub of THE

How to Use
Soap & Glory recommends applying products with happiness and abandon." <- I like this bit. :-)
Just spotted these deals in my inbox and wanted to pass them on to you, since they seem rather good, and I know saving money at this time of year is always handy. Of course this could just be persuading you to spend money that you hadn't planned to spend, but they are still bargains and sometimes it can't be helped. ;-)
First up is the Lumea Precision Plus, an at home IPL device from Philips which is now £350 (online only), saving you a hefty £99.99. Now I haven't used this, but it does get good reviews, and if you're looking into long term hair removal, represents great value in both at home devices, and when compared against the cost of salon/professional treatments.
I also noticed that the previous model, the Lumea Precision also had a large discount of £104.99 (online only), taking it down to a very affordable (for this kind of product) £295.
Next there's the Boots Star Gift of the Week, this week being a fab looking Ted Baker Sitting Pretty gift set, down from £45 to £22 (online and in store)... a perfect present for a loved one, I think. This is available until midnight tomorrow, when a new offer will become available.
Bottle of Body Wash (250ml)
Tub of Body Scrub (300ml)
Bottle of Body Lotion (200ml)
Bottle of Bath Foam (250ml)
Tub of Body Soufflé (300ml)
Bottle of Hand Cream (125ml)
Vanity Case (100% polyester, handle: 100% PVC)
I also noticed they were offering £10 off £60 spends in toys and gifts... which also applies to the star gift of the week, saving you an extra tenner if you were to want to buy 3 for various people in your life. Handy to know. This deduction is done automatically for you, and I believe ends at midnight tonight.
Finally there's various discounts on fragrances available here and an added incentive of an extra 1000 points (£10 worth) if you buy 3 at the same time.
So all in all, not a bad bunch of offers to be had. Will you be purchasing any? x
I am a girl with massive magpie tendencies. I love bling, sparkle, glitter... whatever you want to call it. So, Christmas for me is like my idea of heaven (even though I am TOTALLY not ready for it yet, this year). You get to put up decorations which make your home sparkly, you get to overdo the glitter and sparkle in outfits, and you get to do it often too. So, I always find myself browsing such items online... and in particular on the John Lewis website for their Christmas decorations, as I've always loved what they have to offer.
I've actually shied away from my normal golds/browns for the most part, I guess as I have lots of similar items already, and so my eyes were drawn to different colours that are sooo pretty. Have a look and see for yourself!
And, if it's not too late to start an advent calendar then I'd also love this cute Ciaté Mini Nail Lacquer Advent Calendar too... y'know, just because it's pretty and I'm slightly addicted to nail polish and all that jazz. ;-)
Have you been window shopping anywhere recently? What decoration themes have you gone for this year? Are you even ready for Christmas yet? xx
It's around the £200 mark everywhere else, so for £159.96 plus £6.95 postage is a great price in itself, but it's also able to be paid in 4 easy pay installments of £39.99 (plus the postage being included in your first payment) which makes it super affordable if the £200 layout was just a bit too much for you to manage previously.
Plus, not only do you also have the benefit of QVC's 30 day money back guarantee (even after you've used it), they are also giving you an extra 60 days (so 90 days total) to trial this out and see if you get the results it promises. It's worth the £6.95 postage to get to try it out for 90 days in my opinion... especially if it does work.

This week Clinique have been offering treats with purchases made online now we're in the month of December and it is Christmas (ish) - I'm still not feeling Christmassy, maybe because I still have so much to do before I'm even starting to get ready.
Today is day 5, and with that comes a free 4ml Happy Fragrance with every order! Whilst this isn't as wowing as previous days offers, it is still a lovely fragrance, and a nice little treat if you had your eye on something, but weren't planning on spending too much online.
Apologies for the lack of normal posting at the moment, my laptop keyboard is actually being a pain in my backside as a couple of keys have come off that are making typing a total nightmare. I got them back on last time it happened, but this time they're not doing so, so I'm taking it on Monday to have somebody with the correct tools do it for me.
This week Clinique
have been offering treats with purchases made online, I'm a bit behind
times with this due to net connection issues and email woes, which has
meant that I haven't been getting through my emails as quickly as I'd
like due to a massive backlog, so have only posted today and yesterday;s.
Today is day 4 and with that comes a free 'All I Want For Christmas' gift, worth over £26 with an online purchase of £30 or over (today
only)! This is the perfect time to buy that product that you've had your
eye on, or restock products that are running low.
I think the gift looks absolutely lovely today, but I'd actually be tempted to use the gift set as a mini stocking
filler gift, if I couldn't find much use for it myself, yet still needed to stock up on my Clinique favourites. It's almost guilt free
spending, as it means you're also tackling the Christmas gift shopping list too. ;-)

Today is day 3 and with that comes 'Five Gold Treats', which gives you the option to select 5 mini products with your online purchase (today only)! This is the perfect time to buy that product that you've had your eye on, or restock products that are running low.
I'd actually be tempted to use the 5 free gifts as a mini stocking filler gift by putting them in fancy packaging. It's almost guilt free spending, if you're also tackling the Christmas gift shopping list too. ;-)

Right, I've only just seen this, and it's advanced orders only already, so you're going to have to be quick if you want it. However the BaByliss CurlSecret is on offer at £92.40 + £6.95 postage and packaging on QVC today, right now. The normal retail price is £120, so you're saving £20.65 in total, which is a pretty decent saving.
The advanced orders will be shipped on the week commencing 16th December, so I expect it will still be in time for Christmas gifting.
Below is the information QVC provide about the device, although I'll be reviewing the Professional version very soon:
"BaByliss Curl Secret Hair Styler. With this innovative styler, hair is automatically drawn into the ceramic curl chamber where it is softly held and heated from all directions, taking just seconds to form a perfect curl. It even has an audio beep indicator to let you know exactly when to release your hair. Effortlessly create long-lasting, free-flowing curls with the BaByliss Curl Secret.
Professional-quality styler - it features a powerful heating system with ultra-fast heat recovery for constant high heat, plus a 20 minute sleep mode and a 60 minute automatic shut-off feature for added safety.
Let the curler do the hard work - with standard tools it's always tricky creating the perfect curl, but the Curl Secret features alternating curl direction control for fast, uniform formation and natural-looking, long-lasting results.

You may look at the famous faces of the world with a small degree of jealousy. Celebrities always seem to look so styled and chic, with flawless skin and beautiful make-up ensuring they shine out from the red carpet. But all stars have their secrets when it comes to beauty, and many of the regimes they use are easily accomplished at home. If you’re looking for a few beauty tips from some of the world’s most attractive stars, then here are five lessons to give you a stunning complexion in no time at all.
Invest in a skincare regime
Anyone who’s taken the time to browse skincare products knows one fact; make-up can be expensive. But when it comes to your skincare products, it’s really time to invest some cash. Keeping your skin as youthful as possible is one of the best ways to create a beautiful and timeless look, so it’s worthwhile buying the best products available. Gwyneth Paltrow has been a huge proponent of indulging in skincare therapies, and famously underwent a 90 minute Apple Stem Cell treatment prior to the 2011 Emmys to ensure her skin was glowing and youthful. Your budget might not quite stretch to this $350 treatment, but there are plenty of affordable anti-aging products available for any skin type.
Make your eyes larger
Whilst you can’t actually make your eyes physically larger, you can use beauty techniques to make them appear bigger and more alluring. Lauren Conrad famously does this, incorporating light nude tones into her make-up so that her eyes look wide and dreamy. Simply use pale pink, light nude or white shimmery shadows in the inner corners of your eyes and the effect is almost instant.
Stay away from the sun
You may crave the bronzed hues of sun-kissed skin, but the sun’s rays are extremely damaging to your skin. Some of most beautiful stars of all time have kept their looks by keeping out of the sunlight and utilising sunscreen on a daily basis. This has allowed many beauties of stage and screen to remain looking youthful well into their twilight years. Using SPF 30 or higher is advisable, even if you’re in the sun for 15 minutes.
There is a fantastic variety of good quality fake tan mousse, sprays and lotions available these days, so you can get that perfect golden glow without having to worry about the damaging effects of ultra-violet rays. Moisturise like no tomorrow
One of the world’s most iconic beauties of all time is Marilyn Monroe, and she was widely known to maintain her gorgeous skin with plentiful moisturising. The star applied moisturisers to her skin day and night, and many of the products she used are still available today.
Utilise accessories and fake it
Finally, if you haven’t got it to flaunt, simply fake it. Troy Surratt, Kim Kardashian’s New York City makeup artist, revealed that blemishes can easily be hidden with a good foundation. Adding long and full lashes give you the chance to enhance your femininity, whilst creating smoky looking eyes will enhance this further. The key to using foundation is to ensure that it’s an extremely good match for your skin tone, and is carefully blended in on the edges of the face.
