Something for the weekend - a new addition to the family, discount codes and what I'm loving this week!

Its almost the weekend lovelies, and although I was blessed with a mid week lie in due to a teacher training day, I need another one tomorrow for sure.  We have a new addition to the family, the kind that cries, yelps and scratches at the door all night........

Meet Poppy, a year old black pug who we were asked to rehome on Wednesday.  It took us all of about er, let me think, 5 mins to make the decision.  We just couldn't bear the thought that she might be given away to somebody who wouldn't love and care for her like we would, I mean who knew that going from somebody who hates dogs and animals because they moult and smell, I would end up falling in love with Albert as much as I did. I think its safe to say I am truly obsessed by Pugs and confess to still being petrified of Staffs and Rotties, they make my beach walks a complete misery especially when off the lead and the owners say "oh she's alright" as the hairs on the back of their neck go up and I stand there frozen and shaking like a leaf!

Some more fabulous magazine freebies this month including a Jemma Kidd mascara with Marie Claire and a Dune gift card with Elle mag.  I  already have this mascara, it came free with a magazine a few months ago and I am pleased to report that for somebody who usually only sticks to a couple of tried and trusted brands because they seem to smudge so easily on me, this doesn't smudge, so well worth buying another magazine and keeping it as back up for when the Chanel runs out!

If you are a fan of Jemma Kidd make-up there a plenty of products currently half price at Space NK. Click here to shop.

This week I'm loving the Ellie Saab perfume.  My eldest daughter had this on the other day and it was gorgeous and really lasts, something I insist on when buying fragrance.

Currently on offer at Debenhams here.

I was desperate to find out more about this gorgeous scent and its notes and found a fantastic review here if you are interested in learning more.  Let me know if you have it, love it or are buying for anyone this Christmas and have a fab weekend!
