Five things I’m loving this week: 19th March 2018

5 things Im loving this week Mar 19 2918 pennys picks pennygolightly

Time for a few more lovely things that are making me smile right now. There’s always room for a few tiny treats, and these are my top picks for the middle of March.

First up we have Superdrug’s B. Luminous Lipstick in ‘Oohlala’, a nude semi-sheer moisturising lipstick that’s just right for pretending it’s the Spring. There’s still ice on the pavement? Oohlala, I have my hands over my ears and I can’t hear you. The whole B. range (all vegan, all cruelty-free) is on sale right now so have a peek, and all the luminous lipsticks have been reduced from £6.99 to just £4.66 which is a spanking good deal.

Also at B., the Souffle Face Primer has been reduced from £9.99 to a more affordable £6.66 (the number of the beauty beast, get in) and it’s designed to smooth away pores, stop T-zones getting too oily, and even the skintone. Gives certain extra-spendy designer primers a run for their money too. *looks sternly at Benefit, Tarte, Smashbox et al, no names mentioned* *cough*

Book time! The bestselling Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman is an uplifting read, as well as being a beautifully judged character portrait of a trauma survivor. Because not everything has to be doom and gloom, there’s hope for all of us, and small acts of kindness really can make a difference. The paperback version is on offer for £3.99 at Amazon.

Nibble of the week goes to the Lindt Hazelnut milk chocolate bar with whole roasted hazelnuts and caramelised hazelnut pieces. Not brand new, but a recent rediscovery, these are £2.50 for 150g at Sainsbury’s and other large supermarkets. Just right for sharing, this stuff is essentially what Nutella wants to be when it grows up, moves to the big city and learns how to walk in heels.

And last, but by no means least, we have Avon True Colour Glimmerstick Eyeliners, with limited edition ‘Grey glimmer’ shade in the picture above. These are by far the best cheapie eyeliners around, and this shade is perfect for an easy daytime smoky eye that glides on easily and lasts well too. All colours are reduced from £6.00 to just £3.00 in the sale and they’re also included in the free gift offer (buy two, get a free eyeshadow duo + nail colour + eyeliner) which is a bit of a bargain.


So there we go, news, reviews, sales and offers. Treat yo’ self. Seen anything you like?
