Spasibo (pronounced sp-a-see-bah) спасибо is Russian for thank you. I have no idea what made me want to say it in Russian, but there you go.

So why am I saying thank you, well these are some of the things that have come through the letter box (not quite literally, but you get the picture) this week...

A Little Something from TG
The Guy sent me this lovely package. We're back to postal treats now he's started university in London and I have to say it's one of the positives I try and choose to see, being in a long distance relationship. There is a significance to the Kinder Buenos, aside them being one of my (many) guilty pleasures.

Text Books
New text books to join the 10 tons of languages reference books on my shelves. For anyone looking to go study law, be prepared, the books are costly. These three set me back £70 and unfortunately the editions are updated so regularly that it can be difficult to get second hand books that meet with your lecturers approval. That said, I'm loving the course so far and loving the challenge it presents to my brain. I can really see myself in a law career and that, more than anything confirms that I made the right choice.

Lady Umbrella
More on this next week, keep your eyes peeled.

Elf Matte Lip Colours in Praline (top) and Natural (bottom) £3.50 each

Elf Mineral Glow, £5
I ventured into the world of E.L.F. this week. As well as a couple of things to go with a birthday present, I ended up purchasing these for myself. I haven't bothered to swatch them and I probably won't review them too heavily as the products have been all over the web and press, but I did want to say this...

I was somewhat sceptical when ordering from E.L.F. I had wondered that if, as a budget brand, their customer service, delivery and products would really be that great. I was pleasantly surprised. The delivery was prompt. My order arrived in 2 working days (ordered on Friday, arrived on Tuesday), it was properly packaged up and correct. Having been using the mineral glow (a bit of an experiment to see if it could be a cheaper alternative to my Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil) and both the lip colours, the products were more than worth their bargain prices.

Now, back to the above books. I have my professional board test this week that I have to pass to remain on the course.

Intrigued by the lady umbrella image, I spy a peter pan collar! I saw on twitter that someone said that the Lady Umbrella logo looks like a uterus and everytime i see, i think of this. That person has ruined it for me! x
