I'm in the US now until September, but I asked my Dad to take photos of any prizes that turn up :) So here are a few from this week!
My gorgeous Roberts radio! Looks so lush, can't wait to try it!
L'oreal eye rollerball for men
A package of treats from Elegant Touch as a thank you for the review I did for them a few weeks back :) Very kind of them, unfortunatley I won't be able to try them out and review them for 3 months. Thanks though Elegant Touch!
Note from Elegant Touch.
I happened to come across the Punkyfish website a few weeks ago. Now, I remember Punkyfish from when I was about 12/13 and they used to do weird clothes which consisted of bright colours and metallic zips going through tops. Nowadays they still have some pretty weird stuff, but they also have some nice dresses and bits and bobs :) I saw that they are now offering free delivery on every order, and then I also came across a £10 off code (no minimum spend).
So you can place an order worth £10, use the code and get it delivered, FREE!
The code is: WELCOME10
I made 3 orders (3 seperate accounts) and I got all of this for I think it was £1.49 in total. I know none of it is AMAZING but its freeeee. I only really wanted the skirt and the blouse. The skirt is just £10 so it easy. But the top was like £7.50 and in the sale, and you cant use the discount on sale items, so then I added that hideous belt to make it over £10. And then I got 2 pairs of long socks for £5 each which I thought are cute! hehe. According to my Dad, the orders have all been delivered successfully! Yay!
Let me know if you buy anything!
When I went to my cupcake baking masterclass I used some fab equipment to do the decorations. Most of it was branded 'Wilton' which is an American cake decorating products company. I used 2 different icing nozzles at the class, and in the UK they retail for approx £6 each, whereas in the US, I have just bought 2 for about £1.50 including shipping! Yipee! I have also bought some plastic cut out plungers for using with fondant icing. They're the same designs as I used in the classes also. If you're into cake decorating, then the Wilton website is great and full of ideas and tips on decorating.
These are the 2 frosting nozzles I bought, the Wilton 2D and the 1M. The 2D is my fav as it gives a rose swirl effect, and the 1M is a typical cupcake swirl nozzle.
These are the cutters I bought. A veined butterfly one, a set of 3 blossom flowers, and 3 mini hearts. These are actually shipped from Hong Kong but they were very cheap from the US eBay.
I can't wait to get home and use them all! They have so many great things for cake decorating here in the US, so I will probably buy more. Even Walmart has a professional cake craft section, but its not as cheap as buying online. Amazon.com have a 53 piece Wilton set for only $22 including shipping! Its a shame its so big and I wont have any suitcase space left :(
