All things British - The Royal Wedding

Hi bloggers
Hope you all had a lovely day (off.)  Did you watch TRW?
I was soo pleased Kate wore Alexander Mcqueen and thought the dress was wonderful although i did think it would be less frilly but still soo beautiful.
   I had the Street Party Ballistic bath bomb from lush last night just to get in the spirit and it was soo nice - full off glitter, confetti and party streamers!

Now we're going to go and get fish and chips just to finish off the day perfectly yumm!
Hope you have a lovely evening staying in or going out to celebrate :)

Redness-relief Skincare (Origins and No7)

Price - No7 is £18 for 30ml or £13 with one of those vouchers
          - Origins is £42 for 30ml eeek!

Smell - No7 being very subtle and pretty neutral
           -Origins smells kindof musky-ish but natural - may not be so popular

Texture - Origins is more slippery? but both similar and pleasant :)

Packaging - No7 is very err No7, simple and practical
                  - Origins is pretty simple and organic like - both with pump which is good

Performance - No7, a "cult product" but did nothing for me :S  The reviews are wonderful and some users even say that Calm Skin changed their lives!  I was definitely disappointed in this but having said that i have no visible broken capillaries so may work better for that.  Did leave my skin soft though and was definitely comfortable.
                      - Origins didn't do anything spectacular for me either :(  No visible redness relief but it definitely was calming and soothing.  Initially i used it every night before bed, same as No7, but now it's just a once a week thing after a hard day's play work. 

Will i be purchasing either of these again? No.  I'll definitely use them up or maybe test them on my mum and see if theirs any significant improvements which there may well be as i think these products may be aimed at older chicks so who knows...

Thanks for reading if you survived all this :)

i've been going a bit crazy for banana things lately - i think it's cause spring had finally arrived and well bananas are tropical, kindof.  the shampoo and conditioner is from the body shop and is absolutely wonderful - a bit of a cult product, apparently, and at £4 very reasonable too.  the hand creme is also very lovely and smells just like foam bananas, the sweeties yumyum! not forgetting the earrings which are very cool and also very reasonable at £6 from punkypins.
