Stacey's amazing blog sale

I few weeks ago a dear friend Stacey held a blog sale. WOW it was truly amazing, Stacey has impeccable taste in high end products. When I heard the blog sale was going ahead I literally could not contain my excitement. As soon as it went live I made my order, and it was a big one!

Blog sales are a fantastic way to buy products at a reduced rate, or to get your hands on limited edition products you may of missed the first time around. I would always recommend you purchase from people you know and trust. Stacey is certainly one of them to me.

I purchased items from Mac, Urban Decay, Lipstick queen and Stacey so very kindly popped in a few (lots) of goodies. I sat on my bed and cried when the huge box arrived. The mac blushers and MSF were all limited edition items that I had missed the first time around, I could not believe my eyes when I noted them for sale.

Next up items from Dior, Kevyn Aucoin, Guerlain and Bath and Body Works. I have fallen head over heels for this amazing palette from Kevyn Aucoin. I absolutely love the taupe/purple shade its perfect. Again the beautiful Stacey added the 3 BBW hand gels, I had lusted over them for years. I had one sent to me by my friend Meg in the USA. Now I own 4. Happy

Now this is where I felt lost for words, Stacey had added 2 candles from Bath and Body Works. How generous, and so kind of Stacey. I love the scents of both. I wont be burning them, I don't want them to burn away. I have them on display in my beauty room with pride, I take the lids off once in a while and enjoy a good sniff! Both smell incredible.

And there's more!!!!!! EXCITED!!!!! does not even come close, Stacey brought me 2 of her holy grail Sephora make up brushes. I cannot tell you how many times I have swooned over the brushes on the USA website. Oh how I wish that store would come to the UK. I would love nothing more than to spend a day shopping there.

Both brushes came with a plastic guard, I have kept them and when I went away recently they worked a treat to protect the bristles.

I have really enjoyed the Flawless Foundation brush #56 below to apply my sheer foundation, it blends the product into my skin with ease. My base looks perfect after using this brush.

The Domed Crease brush #16 is the perfect tool for achieving the right amount of shade in the crease. I had never used a brush like this before, its now a firm favourite in my make up application.

Stacey if you reading this I want to say a HUGE heart felt thank you, I have had so much fun playing with all my purchases. Most of them I would never of had the chance to own, so thank you. Also I am lost for words at your generosity, the gift box you sent was absolutely like the best Christmas I've ever had. It was wonderful, thank you, so much. I feel like I know you so well, like your an old friend of mine. I love your taste in beauty and well everything I see you have! I do hope one day I get to meet you in person, I would love nothing more than hitting the shops with you. X
If you like high end beauty you NEED to follow Stacey, she fab.

    1. Thank you Sophie! Am so happy you're enjoying your bits too xxx

  3. What a wonderful post, I love buying from blogsales.. I think we can all find some great bargains and it's a shame for products to be wasted just because one person doesn't want them. I am thinking of hosting one too.. so I'll be sure to let you know about it :)

  4. wow what a generous friend to send all those extra goodies! i have never bought from a blog sale, but it does seem like a good way to get your hands on things that are LE or just more affordable. amazing haul!


  5. I woke up this morning in the worst mood ever-I had a rubbish day yesterday and I'm two thousand miles from home (wherever home is but as I am in Cairo, I am kind of in the middle of Dubai and the UK) so the thought of another long day here in Cairo was making me miserable. But then I read your post and it made me so happy that you were so happy! Thank you so much, everything you said I echo back to you, I am absolutely sure we'll meet one day xxxxx
