Home From Uni

Saturday, 24 July 2010

I finally got home from uni yesterday! This year feels like it's gone on for so long, yet it also feels like it's gone so quickly, I can't believe I won't be a fresher anymore next year!

When I got home, I was welcomed by not only my family, but a new pair of Uggs and a pile of goodies on my bed from a couple of giveaways that I'd won recently which I'd had sent home instead of to my uni halls.

Black Bailey Button Uggs - I know it's not the ideal weather for them at the moment, but when I found out that my dad was going on a business trip to Boston, I asked him to buy me a new pair, since I'd had my old pair for nearly 4 years and they were completely battered and worn. Also, Uggs are SOOOO much cheaper in the US! I realise Uggs are a bit like Marmite - You either love them or hate them. I know lots of people that hate them, but I personally love them. I don't wear them to be fashionable or "cool", I wear them because they're so comfortable and warm!

I've had a stroke of luck recently and have been privileged enough to win a couple of giveaways. I was absolutely thrilled to hear that I'd won the giveaways, since I never expected to. I wanted to take this opportunity to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Sigma, Sarah at I Heart Cosmetics, Faye at Faye Cavania and Kiss Nails. :D

Sigma Makeup - I won the daily giveaway from Sigma's 'Daily Giveaway' on Twitter back in June. I was excited to see that I'd received the SS150 (It has now been renamed to the F30), which is a lovely, soft and dense powder brush.

Korres Body Butter - I won the Korres Quince Body Butter from Sarah's 24 hour giveaway. I've been wanting to try a couple of products from Korres for a while and I was really interested in this scent, since I wasn't really sure what to expect. I've used it once since I got home from uni and so far, I'm loving it :)

Kiss Nails - I won these products by Kiss from Faye's giveaway. When I opened the package, I was overwhelmed at how much I'd been sent, it's so kind of them! I've only ever tried press on nails and I don't even remember what I thought of them, it was so long ago! So I'm really excited to try these products out.

I will do proper reviews for all of these products once I've had the opportunity to use them for a longer period of time and experiment with them. Thank you so much again to Sigma Makeup, Sarah, Faye and Kiss Nails!! :D

Long post is long, sorry! Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy
