(Introducing NEW Burt’s Bees Cucumber Mint) We all have those ‘desert island must have’ products that we couldn’t bare to be without, but few warrant the ritualistic appreciation I seem to have built for Burt’s Bees and their iconic lip…

When we bought our house there was only one thing on my mind: we finally had our own space, our own garden and we could actually get a dog. After spending years hiding my hamsters in the cupboard every time…

So sorry, everyone, I’ve been away on a little work/pleasure trip to Tuscany and – as usual – things have gone a bit mad in my absence! A few things to tell you – great beauty offers that are on, impromptu meetups that I’m holding, a little website admin issue that needs ironing out…
1) I will be at Liberty in London on Thursday evening for their “meet the experts” event. It was brilliant fun last time, so make sure you come and say hello, if you possibly can. I love a good catch up with you all and it’s nice to put faces to names. Drinks are provided and there’s also quite a gorgeous goody bag worth over £150 for those spending £100 or more. (Easily done, unfortunately!) You don’t need to make an appointment or anything like that, just turn up – more info here.
2) Another day, another meetup – it’s like the Crilly Roadshow! This time it’s on Friday and it’s at the new Charlotte Tilbury counter in Selfridges Birmingham. 1-2pm, be there or be square, dwellers of the Midlands! More info in my post here.
3) That amazing Space NK goody bag thing is on again – LOTS of bits and bobs in this one, including the sought-after “mini Diptyque”. There are also hefty samples of REN’s Rosa Centifolia water and Aromatherapy Associates Rose Body Cream as well as brilliant things from Zelens, NUDE and Algenist. It’s free with spends of over £150. You can get the goody bag instore or online HERE – only on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Use the code GETSET14 – if you’re shopping instore you need to book a ticket, £15 redeemable against purchase and you get a glass of fizz. Online shopping, just click and go. No champagne, though…
4) There seems to be an issue with the Daily Fix email at the moment. Some of you (weirdly, it appears to be a lot of people who have been reading from the very start) don’t get an email any more, but my stats tell me that all of them are being sent. Please check that you’re subscribed through Feedburner for the daily emails – I know that the whole Quarterly/Daily Fix thing is totally confusing, but fear not: I am addressing it all when I re-vamp the website. (Don’t worry, it’ll look pretty much the same as it does now, it’s only behind-the-scenes stuff that will change.) Phew. Right. Hold on in there, people, I shall get to the bottom of all of this!
If you’re intent on overhauling your beauty cabinet this January then now is the time: Clinique have a gorgeous gift available at their Covent Garden store, available with the purchase of two or more Clinique products*. The gift includes a mini of one of my favourite shades in the Pop Lip Colour and Primer line-up, “Melon Pop” (you can read by rave about those lipsticks here) and a brilliant shadow duo in “Black Honey and Amber” as well as a High Impact mascara (3.5ml), Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser (30ml), Dramatically Different Moisturiser+ (30ml) and Repairwear Laser Focus Eye Cream (5ml). Everything comes presented in a colourful makeup bag designed in collaboration with Kapitza Studio, who make brilliant geometric art for interiors and fashion textiles.
I find beauty miniatures irresistible (as you would find out if you ever poked about in my office drawers, which are full to the brim with tiny tubes of face cream and dinky perfume bottles and little glass pots of this and that) and I entirely blame Clinique for this particular addiction, because it was their “Bonus Time” gifts that got me hooked in my late teens!
I loved being able to discover new products and – as an incorrigible beauty addict – I liked the excuse to treat myself to a couple of things knowing that I was getting even more stuff to play about with at home. Though I’m pretty sure that the makeup offerings when I was a teen were never quite so tempting as they are these days; just look at this Melon Pop Lip Color:
So bright and cheerful for these dismal winter days. The formula is rich and buttery and feels comforting on crackled weather-beaten lips, but the colour is vibrant and bold. Just gorgeous.
And the All About Shadow duo is very wearable and flattering; below I’ve used the lighter shade as a wash across the lid and the darker to add depth and define the lashline slightly. I’ve finished off with a couple of coats of the High Impact Mascara…
This gift is exclusive to the Covent Garden Store until the 30th January 2016 – free with the purchase of two or more Clinique products* – and if you’re stocking up and happen to buy a third product, you get a free FULL SIZE Moisture Surge Overnight Mask! If you need some pointers when it comes to skincare choices then please do read my post here.
You can find the Clinique Covent Garden Store on the East Piazza. If you don’t live in or near London and can’t get to Covent Garden then please do check the Clinique website for online offers. You can find that here.
*one to be skincare or foundation. Or with the purchase of one Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush. This post is an advertorial for Clinique.
