Little Weekend Spree & Moving Out News!

Description of Photo Description of Photo Description of Photo Description of Photo Description of Photo
At the weekend I met some of my chums for some lunch and we went on a little spree afterwards. I never go shopping much as I work from home and i'm never in town much so it was really nice to just go out and find some lovely things and bargains too!

I have to say, I love the two primark dresses, I already have a similar white one from primark I got a few years back but I wear it so much so wouldn't hurt to have two! I got them for £5.00 each-bargain! 

Another thing I couldn't resist buying was bareMinerals Cultured Pearl…it's a light gorgeous shade perfect for spring. I hardly have any eye shadow so I need to build up a little collection. 

I'm moving out of my family home on Friday (I have lived here for 19 years!) and moving down to Alnwick, Northumberland to be with my boyfriend who works down there. We are renting a lovely little house near the centre with a spare bedroom so I can work from home still. I can't wait to have a proper room dedicated to Ginger Pickle with lots of lovely storage. It's still a small room but least it doesn't have a bed in it! I bought this folder from paper chase to get a bit more organised, in love with the colours! 

The next time I blog it will be from my new home, yay!

Balance Me Radiance Face Oil Review

Balance Me Radiance Face Oil review

I bought this gorgeous Balance Me Radiance Face Oil with my Christmas money and meant to do a review a while back. I bought it from Lookfantastic.com after an evening of scrolling in their skincare category. I noticed it  rave reviews and won beauty awards and was intrigued! I am really into skin care and like to branch out and try new things when I can. I use this before going to bed about 4 times a week, as you can see there's still a fair bit left in the bottle so it really does last a long time. I can honestly say I LOVE this stuff. My skin looks much better in the mornings when I use the oil the night before, it makes my skin more radiant and hydrated, even though this oil is not for dry skin it's for all skin types. I have combination skin so it's perfectly fine even if you are prone to break outs, as it says in the product description…

"Suitable for replenishing and rebalancing all skin types, even combination complexions"

Don't let the price tag put you off this is worth every penny!

Have you ever tried this oil?

At the weekend I had a stall at Glasshouse which was a contemporary craft fair run by Smart Consultants and commissioned by Be Part Of The Picture ,held at Foxlane Garden Centre, Westhill, Aberdeen. It was in a huge greenhouse with gorgeous light, it was a fantastic location and when the sun was shining it was gorgeous! It was a SUPER busy event, over 1000 people attended on the Saturday. 

We had the preview evening on the Friday night from 6-9pm and then it was open to the public on the Saturday and Sunday 10-5pm. It was quite narrow between the tables so when the crowds where coming in I was at the sidelines trying to get out of everyone's way, it was pretty mad at times and constantly busy which is always what you want! I needed a huge rest after the weekend, my legs where in agony. Smart Consultants consistently run a fantastic show, they are always working so hard to get people through the doors, they even had the STV news crew in on the Friday and managed to get lots of press for the event. They deserve a big pat on the back! 

I was next to the lovely Helen Ruth Scarves (here's me loving the Ruby Woodland Scarf…it's so gorgeous!!) It was lovely to finally meet Helen, i've followed her on Facebook and Twitter for a while. I'm in awe at her beautiful scarves and quirky bow-ties, so make sure to check them out.

The best seller of the whole event was the bottled pendants by Bottled Treasures and my Wooden Creature Jewellery. I only managed to take pictures of my stall as it was just too busy and I never had a helper so I didn't want to leave my stall too often but some of the other stall holders where:

Did you manage to come along to the Glasshouse?
