Little Samples

A super quick one to share these tiny little treats I got aaaaaggesss ago from a blogging event at Harvey Nichols in Manchester. It was a really nice, but strange evening for me. It was based on the beauty floor of Harvey Nic’s and had several demonstrations and talks from various experts on different counters. I only found it strange as other Harvey Nic’s events tend to be more of an afternoon tea or cake occasions (which I loveeeee). Either way, different is good yah!! And I got to see some of my Manchester favourites like Fashion Dotty and It’s a Blogger’s World, and meet some new faces too. As usual we got to take away a few cute little samples which are too adorable not to share:

 Créme De La Mer is one of those super expensive cult products that everyone used to claim they used back in the days before blogging and when MySpace was cool. I kind of forgot it existed but when I got these I was just taken by their miniature goodness!! I’ll be trying these soon and reporting back to see if it’s worth the £100+ price tag…..

I also got some Bare Minerals Night Serum, which is in a dainty little bottle with a pipette. I do love a good pipette. I’ve not used either yet as they’re so small and precious. Once again another batch of things I’m finding too cute to be utilised. I have quite the collection now. But now I have moved I’m going to be a bit more organised with everything and actually going to try and plan some blog posts in advance and get in to some kind of routine…It’s only taken a year or so to decide this like. Ha. Hope you’ve all had an enjoyable weekend so far!

    Although La Mer products are mini samples, you will realize how amazing they are. My favorite lip balm. Now are like little treasures.

    I would be kinda scared to try the creme de la mer samples, I hate it when I love a sample but can't afford the full size! x

    Can you mention me in every post please? I get lots of clicks, you is well influential. I recommend NOT trying the Creme de la Mer, I found it was actually genuinely awesome and am worried about getting addicted to it.

      HAHA. I'm glad people click through! Ooooh I'm scared I will need to take out a loan to get more if it's good!

    Ah it was such a lovely night – it was my first ever event and I found it so surreal! The Creme De La Mer samples were adorable, I've still got mine tucked away in the tissue paper haha.

      It took a lot for me to crack it out, I loved the green on the bags too!

    definitely want to get my mittens on some creme de la mer! apparently though, nivea (the german kind) in the blue tin is one of the closest dupes for a minuscule amount compared to that moisturizing gold!

      I looked on ebay for how much the little samples could be in case I love it and need more! So pricey though!! oooh UK nivea gives me spots!
