New MAC Collections and Hello Kitty Goodies :)

Sorry - I can see I am going to be MIA a bit till I get my laptop back - I have to say I almost shed a tear when UPS came to pick it up yesterday to take it back to Samsung - hurry back my friend :( Anyways it was my mums birthday yesterday so we had a lovely day - I made her a gorgeous meal of mushroom stroganoff and a gorgeous blackberry and white chocolate mousse - very yummy but not good for the waistline - lol. Anyways I have got a few parcels over the last couple of days - my giveaway prize from the lovely Lydia deserves a post of its own so hopefully I will show you all my lovely goodies tomorrow, but in the meantime Ireceived a MAC parcel,a perfume parcel, and a huge box of goodies to review (more on that to come in the next few weeks:) )
MAC released some of their new collections in the UK last week so I placed a little order when I ordered my giveaway prizes (my giveaway ends tomorrow - don't forget to enter - see below ) One of my must have items from the new collections was The Perfect Cheek blush - its a gorgeous natural colour, which unusually for me is matte - its certainly love - I wore it yesterday and today :)

I also ordered a couple of the nail polishes - Dry Martini - which is actually a much darker brown / olive - it looks minging in this pic but it honestly isn't that bad :)and Beyond Jealous which is a gorgeous dark teal - these colours will be gorgeous for winter :)

I also got a little perfume though the post from The Fragrance Shop . I recently spotted a perfumes in Boots and knew I had to have it - I was initially going to buy it then and there but for some reason I didn't. I recently watched a video from the fabulous FoundOnFilm where she bought this perfume from The Fragrance Shop for a much better price (£7.99 as opposed to £12.50) and not only that but you get a free bracelet - bargain! The perfume that I'm talking about is super sweet but in a good way and I love it - it is Hello Kitty x

  8. Happy Birthday Mom! Your dinner and dessert sounded yummy. I'd be lost without my computer. I live on this thing. Love the Mac blush. It looks like a fantastic color. I so want to order from Mac. I'm waiting and waiting for my new bank card. I so want Dry Martini. It looks like a Revlon Streetwear polish I had years ago and gave away like an idiot! Enjoy all your stuff,
