June Buys And Gifts - Magazine Freebies, Avon, And Ebay

It's the start of a new month and that means it's time to you all the goodies that I picked up last month. You've already seen the majority of my June buys with my purchases at the two blogger events that I talked about yesterday (you can see what I bought here and here) but I did make another couple of cheeky purchases :)

Ebay - my love, you make me money but you also take so much from me, I made 6, yes 6 ebay purchases last month - whoops a diddle - first up another phone case

I love the psychedelic swirl design rubber cover that I've been using but it's already starting to look a bit battered and faded, so I thought I'd get a new more long wearing one. I already have a similar one for my ipod touch so I thought I'd pick up this clear crystal effect silicone case to match. It was just 99p including postage from this seller.

My next couple of purchase came after an nearly an hour of trying to untangle a couple of sets of earphones - the cloud winder was 99p with postage from this seller

and I also got a set of 3 fish winders for 99p from this seller. I'm intending to wrap all the cables I'm taking on holiday in these, to avoid all that detangling.

It's been a month or so since I indulged in my scarf obsession, so I picked up this lovely star scarf. I love the monochrome and slightly dirty olive colour of this one - it was just £1.89 including postage from this seller.

I also got this black stone faceted ring which has been on my wanted list for some time which was just 99p with postage from this seller x

My final ebay purchase of the month was a nail polish - I debated over whether to get another Etude House ice cream polish but instead I went for a colour from their Color Pop range instead.

The shade is CBL601, and it's a real bright aqua, turquoise in colour. It was £2.87 from this seller x

My final purchase of the month was a magazine - a copy of Red, which came with a 15ml tube of Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm - I haven't tried this yet but I've heard so good things about it x

It was all going so well spending wise, until Wednesday's Top Shop event, before that I'd spent just £15.72, add £39.75 to it and you've got one bad month.

Top Shop Haul - £39.75
Phone Case - ebay - 99p
Senor Picklesworth Mini Cushion - £5.00
Fish Cable Winders - ebay - 99p
Cloud Cable Winder - ebay - 99p
Ring - ebay - 99p
Star Scarf - ebay - £1.89
Etude House Color Pop Nail Polish - ebay - £2.87
Red Magazine - £2.00
Total - £55.47
£15.47 Over

If it hadn't been to the event then I wouldn't have gone over lol so I'm not going to beat myself up over it, and I'm just going to try harder in July.

Mummy Lou has also been amazing this month and she bought me a few magazines whilst I was on my sickbed - the freebies are amazing at the moment - first up ELLE which came with a tube of Rodial Brazilian Tan - I got the shade Light.

She also got me Glamour which came with a free Model Co product - I got a lipgloss in Berry Pink.

and finally she got me Marie Claire which came with a mini Ciate Caviar Manicure kit, the nail polish is Cookies And Cream, and the beads are Shooting Stars. I've already done a mani with this which I'll show in the next week or so x

She also very kindly paid for this months Avon order, what can I say - I was asleep when my neighbour came with the order ;) First up a lovely sparkly blue polish - Celestial Blue.

This looks so pretty in the bottle but each coat is so thin, it will probably be best layered over a solid navy.

The other thing I got one of the new baked / mineralized Cosmic Eye Shadows. The shade I got was Jaded Moon, a gorgeous multi toned olive green / gold.

The pictures above are taken without the flash, but I've also taken some with the flash so you can see the metallic sheen.

This is a lovely eyeshadow that could be used wet or dry, I've just swatched it dry here, but I can't wait to use it wet.

So that was my June haul, if you have any questions on anything I've bought please leave me a comment xx
