Elf had a 40% off coupon thingymabobbah, and I've been wanting to get a few more eye brushes. Since I'm lazy and hate washing my other ones, so why not buy some more!
2 x Studio Line Angled Contour Brush - I just wanted this one because I don't have anything like it in my brush collection.
2 x Studio Line Eyeshadow "C" Brush - I already had one of these and really liked it, so I thought I'd get a couple more.
2 x Bamboo All-Over Eye Shadow Brush - A lot of people say that this is like the Mac 239 brush. All I can say is that it's very soft and quite dense.
2 x Bamboo Blending Eye Brush - For some reason the handle on this is really small. I thought it would be more dense than it is, however its still quite fluffy.
Can't wait to give these a bash!

I am beyond excited to say that my Mum has now decided that we can indeed get a puppy!
My dad and me have wanted one for absolutely ages and have had other pets in the mean time (piggies and bunnies). I've never had a dog, so I'm super excited.
My Mum was so set on not having one for a couple more years yet but suddenly has changed her mind.
However, my Dad must do all the DIY jobs around the house before we can get one.
We have decided that we will be getting an English Cockapoo.
A Cockapoo is a cross between a pure Cocker Spaniel and a pure Poodle.
They are absolutely adorable and are known for their good nature.
I've been doing lots of research on them and they are far too cute for words!
I couldn't sleep last night because I was thinking about all the things I could buy for him/her (saddo).
So hopefully we will have a new addition to the family in early 2012!
Watch this space.
A happy Harriet :)

So, Mick and me had quite a busy weekend! On Friday I went to my Mum's carol concert, bless her. Then after that we popped to MacDonald's for some grub at 10pm at night and then drove back to Knutsford.
On Saturday, we were suppose to go to the Manchester Christmas markets but the weather was awful so we decided to go to The Trafford Centre instead and I chose some of my Xmas pressies! Then we went and got a cheeky Chinese (shredded chicken in peking sauce!). Which was amazing and we ate that in front of the log fire whilst watching some True Blood. Then on Sunday we decided to take a trip into Knutsford and go around the Charity shops! I got a few things which I'll show below. And finally drove back to mine for a roast dinner!
I did vlog some of it:
Lots of Christmassy pictures!
I haven't been feeling that festive at all but then on Friday it started to snow, yay for snow!
So I thought I'd go around the house taking pictures.
1. Me with Santa bear and my favourite hat of all time

7. My reading I have to do over Christmas

So it was my friend's 21st the other week and we decided to go out and celebrate.
It was circus fancy dress themed, so I went as an exotic bird (I'm sure they have them in circus'?)
Not going to lie, I had lots of fun making my eyes all colourful!
I picked up the dress from a charity shop in Knutsford, go me!
Here's a video of it...
I got an email from Debenhams saying that they had put £5 on our beauty cards (WooHoo).
I wasn't sure whether to get another Mac e/s or some hair tools!
But I decided to pop down to my local Mac counter and go on a swatching spree.
I was torn between All That Glitters, Star Violet and Beautiful Iris.
In the end I went for Beautiful Iris.
Which basically cost me nowt since they also had 15% off makeup!
It's a very sheer light purple but I tend to pack it on my lid and the pay off is quite good.
Not to mention the colour is absolutely gorgeous!
Next I picked up Rimmel Spice(d?) lipliner, since it's a raved about product.
It's really nice and fitting with Christmas!

Colour: Sable (Dark Brown)
I saw everyone getting this in their Carmine boxes and was jealous to say the least. I'm into anything to do with brows, lets say I have a small obsession. I wasn't going to pay £22 for this but I did have a lookie on Ebay and someone was selling a brand new one. So I snapped it up for a couple of quid.
The colour is pretty dark when applied to the brows but I have naturally dark brows. However, my hair is blonde so I don't want too much of a contrast! The pen itself is very easy to use and the product dries quickly and lasts all day. I would love to try out more of the colours, Taupe might be slightly too light so I may try GOSH's one.
