Melon Bump


Me and father took some pictures of JoJo's bump earlier and this one had to be my very favourite so I had to share it with you because it is so cute/sweet . This one was taken by me , that is proud daddy Stevie in the background  . Today is actually JoJo's due date (21/04/12) so we are waiting for her to snap , crackle and pop  , but  Samuel is currently a no show . I fear for the new sofa but she refuses to sit on a pile of towels . Fingers crossed for a safe speedy delivery of baba soonies .

Chanel Vitalumière Aqua


I waited so long to purchase this foundation , mostly purely down to it's bulky price tag . . . At £31 it is one of the more expensive highend foundations . I got mine for £27 because Debenhams were holding an 10% off beauty event , this was down to pure luck and I probably won't be so lucky to stumble across it again discounted . Anyway I can safely say with hand upon heart that I love it so very much ! And will repurchase this without a doubt . . . Read on and you see why . 

Appearance This foundation is as stated a medium coverage foundation so does not provide as much coverage as say the Estée Lauder Double Wear but the coverage is perfect for this foundation . It is very light in texture and It makes my skin look amazing ! It is basically a second skin , it gives a beautiful fresh natural appearance , it is a semi matt foundation but can look slightly dewy under the eye area . I brought this particular Chanel foundation after I sampled both the Vitalumière Aqua and Perfection Lumiere . There was nothing wrong with the Perfection , it was a lovely foundation but was just more coverage than the Aqua and for a medium-full foundation I have Double Wear so wanted the more natural looking foundation for the days you want less heavy looking make up .

To apply  I don't want my 187 MAC brush or a sponge to soak up any of this product so as suggested by Chanel I apply this foundation with my fingers . If you use this foundation and try applying it this way you'll understand , it needs a lighter touch and it's just nice to feel really . I like to apply a smidge of Double Wear to the areas , such as much cheeks and chin , for that extra reassurance . Also make sure you shake the bottle really well , and I mean really well because the formula separates in the bottle .

* Small Bottle The size of the bottle is a total optical illusion . It's 30ml , same as all other Chanel foundations . If you look through your foundations I am sure you'll see they are all also around the 30ml mark , so there is no skimping on the amount in the bottle here *
If you were looking for a naughty splurge treat for yourself I'd say this is definitely it .

What do you think of the Chanel foundations ? Let me know if you go out and buy this yourselves, let me know what you make of it ?

It Will Soon Be Christmas

Ooh it is a new week again and new needs & wants , more just want than need really . As of later today that bralet shall be mine (I love that my LoverHalf works right near a Topshop branch), I have no idea what the heck I am going to wear it with but it's pretty sweet and when you see something you like you should buy it asap , it is currently available from Topshop for £24 . As for that beautiful over sized clutch , it is never ever in stock on the American Apparel website but I want it so bad so I will continue my search until I get one . I want it in a lilac suede but I don't think it exists ? I'd also really like a new car and a French Bulldog named Whiskey but I don't think it's gonna happen . Want do you want ? What do you need ?

I just had to share these with you ! I ordered them the other day after seeing them on Effies blog . I went straight to eBay and purchased myself the cute little pug design . So with much excitement they came in the post a few days later and I was well away . I could not believe how easy these were to apply to the nail . All you have to do is trim around the picture , peel from the card then stick on the nail . Fix with a shiney top coat and your good to go .

* If you have fallen for these bad boys as much as I have you can get them and many other designs from eBay from the super wonderful seller Janchristie . She stocks flower, dog, cat and many other prints . Bonus If you enter "Bonjour Blog" in the message option section when paying you'll get some free samples thrown in , one super ebay seller *

Anyways I got this skirt , clearly . This skirt was available a while ago from Topshop and I hummed and ha'd over it then never actually brought it , then realised the other evening that again I really wanted it . Yeah  it was no longer in stock so where do we go for lost wanted items ? ? ? eBay !  Be careful though because some sellers recognise the fact that some items are sold out and will attempt to milk you for every penny . I found one as soon as I searched and a few days later I got it for £30 , I cannot remember how much it was originally in Topshop but I no it was more than £30 . It feels strangle wearing a skirt when the weather is still so chilly cold and I don't usually ever wear skirts but I love it all the same .

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Moisturiser


If you saw my what's in my shower post you'll of seen I am a huge fan on the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub . I use it a few times a week and my face loves it  . It keeps my skin clean and refreshed . So when I saw an advert on telly advising a new product being welcomed to the range I got super excited . Only problem was I couldn't find it stocked anyway . After weeks of searching I found  it in my local Boots . Huge plus side to the wait was the whole line was on offer , two for £5 . Being as the moisturiser was £4.95 alone it made the offer irresistible . 

I adore this moisturiser so much ! Neutrogena claims to "hydrates & refreshes, helps keep skin clear and soft, does not clog pores" , so true . It's oil free so there is no excess grub being rubbed on to my face , it just makes my skin feel soft , not clogged , a great base for my foundation . All of the grapefruit range smell so yummy , the refreshing grapefruit leaves your skin feeling fresh and breathing , great for those lazy "I can't get out of bed" days . If you can get this while it is still on offer then do , grab the scrub and the moisturiser as a pair and see how you get on .
