Save and Splurge #1

              SAVE                                  SPLURGE

This week ive been looking at the Mulberry Willow Tote in Pheasant Green, this is my favourite colour for this Autumn/Winter and this bag is just the one! However retailing at £1,500 and definitely being a Splurge in my opinion I decided that already having four of my own Mulberry bags was enough! So I started looking at a bags that were cheaper in price especially seeing as though I wanted to own one in my staple colour! I was looking on facebook at the time and the Save bag popped up, it is being sold by a lady I know who has her own shop called Ginger Lilys Beautique near to where I live and who also sells online via her website Ginger Lilys Beautique and facebook page its called the Envelope Shopper in teal! The Save bag retails at £24.99 a massive saving and a bag that looks amazing and very similar to the Mulberry Willow! You can find the Save bag on her facebook page here and on her website here, also if you live in the Kent area she has her own shop in Parkwood!

Envelope Shopper Teal-
Only £24.99
Comes in teal and pink
Is a good look-a-like
Looks like the real Mulberry!

Mulberry Willow Tote Pheasant Green-
Its £1,500
Comes in lots of colours and fabrics
A statement piece
Keeps its shape and looks better with wear!

I love the Save bag and its definitely one I would love to have in my Collection especially for the price!

Have you found any good Saves recently?

Holiday Haul

So I went on Holiday back in August and got back mid September, whilst at the airport on the way there I decided to have a look in Mac.
I knew I wanted the Face and Body foundation and that I wanted a couple of lipsticks so I set off for duty free with my poor boyfriend in tow.

I picked up the Face and Body foundation first in C1 as I had wanted this for ages but just left it as I knew it would be cheaper to wait and buy it in duty free.

'Razzle Dazzler'


'Pink Pearl Pop'

I then went over to the Lipstick section and picked out two new lipsticks I had also had my eye on but waited because of duty free, these were Crosswires and Pink Pearl Pop, I picked these up but as I looked through the drawers my eyes were drawn to another lipstick I could see the name of Razzle Dazzler from the Limited Edition Orange collection, they had loads of these left so I picked up one to try too!

As I was going to pay I also saw a blush I liked the look of, I swatched it and fell in LOVE needless to say I then wore it a lot on my holiday!

Whilst I was on the plane I also picked up the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, I already have the Naked 2 but I really wanted this one as its so small its so much easier to take away with you!
I have used this a lot since ive been back in the UK and im so pleased I bought this!

Have you picked up anything nice on your holiday?

So today I have decided I want to sell one of my Mulberry Bags, I have written a previous post about my Mulberry Collection and since then I have decided I don't use them all enough to warrant keeping every single one!
I have decided that I am going to sell my Sofia Bag in Pebbled Black leather. I bought this in February 2011 from House of Fraser Bluewater Shopping Village for £460.
I have looked after this bag really well over the years and as you may know Mulberry leather definitely looks better with age and wear, when not using the bag I have always kept it in the dust bag to avoid damage.
I have uploaded as many photos as I can to show you each part of the bag, their are some light scratches to the metal drawstring plate and the rest of the photos show how the bag has been worn and the Authenticity Number on the inside metal tag of the bag. 
If you need any more photos or would like some more information you can email me on petal1992@hotmail.co.uk I would like sensible offers or bids made through my email also. This is a high-end bag so only sensible offers and bids will be considered, postage for the bag will be £12 on top due to posting with recorded delivery and the correct insurance.

International Beauty Wishlist

Ok so I thought I would do my first International Beauty Wishlist! I always come across new beauty products and then realise they are only available in the US! 

When the Maybelline Baby Lips came to the UK I was ecstatic but now I want the Neon ones and they are only available in the US right now :( they look amazing I just wish I could have them!
I know this isn't really Beauty related but I needed to mention the Victoria's Secret Dogs! I NEED one NOW! We only have a few stores in the UK and whenever I go to one they tell me I cant buy them and they never have them available on the US website!
Bath and Body Works what more can I say! All the products I have in this Wishlist just look amazing! My favourite time of year is Christmas and Winter so their Christmas products look to die for! I just wish I could buy them all! 
Finally I have been lusting over Physicians Formula for over a year now! I want so many of their products but mostly I want their booster blush and bronzer and their loose bronzing hearts! I am so sad you cannot easily buy these in the UK the only place ive seen to buy them is from iherb.com and occasionally ive seen people have found the odd item in TKMaxx!

What would you buy if you could get US beauty products in the UK?

Also I would like to mention if anyone from the US would like to do a beauty box swap then get in touch with me by email petal1992@hotmail.co.uk I would love to do one!
