For Halloween, I blinged up my pumpkin and spray painted it gold! I have to say that I loved it and I don't know what will top it next year! The orange roses are just beautiful. The colour is perfect for Halloween and I'll definitely buy more next autumn. I also made caramelised pumpkin seeds and my brother made fudge with maltesers. They tasted delicious even though I do say so myself! A perfect Halloween.
Also, I want to mention an online boutique which I have recently found and love love love. It's called Let It Reign and it sells really unusual gifts. Last weekend, I ordered an alphabet cup and saucer for my friend, personalised with a letter 'L'. The customer service was amazing and I was worried it wouldn't arrive in time, but they sent it out the day after I'd ordered it and it arrived with time to spare. They also kept in contact with me via Twitter and e-mail telling me when it had been dispatched and so on. (It's typical that I do things last minute!) The packaging was lovely as well. So, big thanks and my friend was really happy with it!
The only thing I'm disappointed with is that I don't have an 'S' tea cup myself!!!
I couldn't wait to try this product as I've never used this brand before, so I took my make up off, cleansed my skin and gently applied it to my face and neck.
Upon application, my skin felt quite tight, similar to the feeling of a face mask (I love this sensation as it makes me feel like it's working!). A short while later this feeling was replaced with super soft, smooth and silky skin. I have been using it before I go to bed and my skin still feels really nourished in the morning. It contains three magical ingredients....cotton extract which softens skin, rice extract which moisturisers and aloe which smoothes. It is fragrance free which is great, especially if like me, you don't like strong scents on your face.
At £14.99, this is more than half the price I usually spend on moisturiser and I have to say it it's much more effective.
I can't wait to use this moisturiser throughout winter as my skin becomes really dry and I think this sensitive formula will work a treat.
I can't recommend this product enough and I will be purchasing it as soon as it runs out! I can't wait to try more Burt's Bees products.

Around August time I tweeted Stylistpick, desperate to find out when the Alea studded boots would be available and to my dismay they said October, so I had two whole months to wait....However, at last I have them and I wanted to share these beauties!
