Hairy scary?

As a self proclaimed selfish cow, it pains me to say that sometimes it's not always all about me...

Let me introduce you to The Real Shaving Co.

Hubby-to-be was very surprised that something had actually arrived in the mail for him. Naturally I opened up all the tubes and had a good old poke about at all the products. And you know what? they smell, well - MANLY! Nice! 

So with a box of brand sparkly new products to try out and me being insanely jealous, you know what the cheeky bugger then asked for? new razors! cheeky monkey indeed! then told me was too camera shy to actually appear in the blog post... Grrr!

 So what to do, what to do?

In come's fabulous new housemate Bronson! who was more than happy (after the offer of free beer & gentle persuasian) to be my tester bunny! hurrah!


a natural born product tester!

pondering what he's got himself into!!

I asked Mr B what he thought of The Real Shaving Co. products?

Mr B: Ummm, yeah they were good
LJ: what was your favourite product?
Mr B: the scrubbing one, that was good! I'll use that one again.
LJ: would you buy these again when they run out?
Mr B: Yep!
LJ: so, what would you rate the products out of 5?

LJ: Oh good, so that's a solid 5?

Mr B: nope, make that 6 out of 5!

So there you have it! a 6 out of 5! impressive, good job Mr B! 

With Christmas looming I would highly recommend some goodies from The Real Shave Co. for your other half, as stocking fillers, a pressie for your best guy mate or the office kris kringle.

And best of all they are all under a fiver! - unless you add on brand new razors!! lol

Shopping up a tropical storm with L.A. Colors

 Dragging hubby-to-be to Westfield London is never a good idea... 
I knew I had to make it quick!

After wondering around aimlessly I spotted...

Oh my stars I love that shop! from fragrance, to makeup & skincare it has it all! but best of all for the true inner stingy shopper Beauty Base has treats from as little as 99p!

Like nailpolish

I love it! perfect for my new grey dress jumper

As a huge fan of spending less, I have to say I was not disappointed whatsoever with this little cheapie polish, it painted on evenly, streak free & as a little added bonus it actually dried quickly between coats!

The secret diary of a stingy girl continues...

I'm pleased to say I've transferred my stingy/frugal ways across the other side of the world & discovered a whole new perspective on stingy shopping i.e. charity shops & carboot sales! ta da!

Oooh they are delightful!

Don't frown darling! it's not "charity ewww..." it's 

Here is a quick little post about my morning charity shop bargain hunt...

Shoes! Yes, shoes!!!

Pink ones! aren't they cute?
unfortunately due to the rubbish weather, I can't get a true picture of the colour but they are a soft baby pink

they even have bows

but, wait for it - they are from ALDO! seriously!!! 
Oooh nice!

so considering shoe's from ALDO can average around £65+ 
how much did I pay for these lovelies??




Yep! that's right 3 shiny british pounds, or for my aussie friends that's the bargain price of 

AU$4.70 !!!

So who's with me? are they a bargain, or what!? 
do you think they are cute? would you wear them? 

have you come across any fabulous finds lately? 

Would you like to see more of my stingy/frugal charity shop bargains?
