While I was on my trip to Scotland I went into a cute little gift shop that sold these little A6 notebooks, they are by a company called Oscar & Toots and they would make lovely little gifts. The other great thing about them is that the covers are removable, so when you use up the notebook inside you don't have to stop using the beautiful cover! 

Oscar & Toots are available from here and here

A month ago I saw all over the beauty blogs that I follow that Fragrance Direct were selling Dainty Doll products for under £5! Being fair skinned I made sure that I purchased some of the products as they normally retail for over £10! I had previously tried the loose mineral powder foundation and was not impressed with it for £20, but thought I would give the blushers, eye shadows and eye pencil a try, and I was really impressed.

I have been using the powder blushers for a bit now, and I'm really impressed with the colours. I purchased shades 004 and 002. 002 is a really pretty pink colour, as I usually wear pink blusher's this is the shade I have been wearing most out of the two, but I also have been really loving the 004 shade which is a coral shade, its is a nice change and also great for Spring/Summer. The 004 shade has a shimmer to it also, making it perfect for summery evenings. 

For the eyeshadows I purchased shades 001 and 002, 001 'Are you experienced' being a light brown which is lovely blended with a lighter shade and 002 'Treat her like a lady' a nude shade which is perfect for everyday.  I really was impressed with these eyeshadows they have plenty of pigment and apply very nicely! 

The final product I got was the eyeliner pencil in 002 a dark brown, I used to be a big fan of eye pencils but have stuck with liquid eyeliner for a long time, however after trying this shade I found it a nice change with the above eyeshadows for a more natural look. 

Last month Uniqlo unveiled it's collaboration with Celia Birtwell, she used her archives of beautiful prints to create this lovely collection with the Japanese label. Birtwell became widely known in the 60's when she worked with her then husband Ossie Clark as a textile designer. Birtwell's most recent collaboration was with Topshop in 2006 which was a huge sell out. I never managed to get hold of a piece of the Topshop collab and so need to get my hands on a piece from this collection, I just cant decide between the shirt, culottes or trousers and I wish the totes were not sold out, as they looked so cute also!
