Crystalised converse

Hey girlys
Just wanted to share with you my beautiful crystalised converse.

They are decorated with swarovski crystals on the toe cap area and with a line running up the back of the shoe then finished off with some thick white ribbon for laces. I absolutely love them and they have brought a new lease of life into my old plain converse. I know there is a lot of company's that offer this service on twitter and facebook and its normally pretty expensive so i am super lucky that there is a lady in my local area who charges just £15 which is such a bargain! Let me know what you guys think I definitely think I will be getting many more items in my wardrobe blinged out soon!

The Body shop chocomania and hemp

Hi girls
Just a little post to share some bargains I picked up recently from the Body shop. The store I brought these from was slightly different to a regular Body shop as it was a outlet store so everything is discounted quite a lot from the regular rrp price.

I got a Chocomania duo which included a shower gel and a body butter. This was £8.40 with products worth of £12. This stuff is gorgeous! Its got more of a strong rich coco smell rather than actual chocolate but I love it and it always leaves me feeling completely pampered after use. The body butter is extremely moisturising and leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft. I'm pretty sure that this range is limited edition from last year so hopefully I can get some more before it disappears.
I also got this huge Hemp bundle for just £13.80 with products worth of £23. I personally cant stand the scent of this range however I use it as I suffer from extremely dry skin and eczema and have found the hand protector to be very good from past use. This set contains two of the hand protector creams one large and one mini. 3 hemp moisture high balms and one bottle of moisturising hand wash. The hand protector is quite a intensive moisturiser so I would definitely recommend this if you suffer with particularly dry hands and its great for this time of year with the cold weather. The high balm is like a solid version of the hand protector. I'm not overly keen on this product as it smells very strongly of the hemp scent and is very greasy when applied. The handwash again is very heavily scented but very mild and gentle on the skin so this is great for my poor dry hands as I do find many handwashes to be very harsh and drying.
If you have a outlet store near you I would definitely recommend checking it out as there are big savings to be had and the store I visited was pretty vast in comparison with most Body shop stores.
