Marshmallow Blends AppleJack Frost Sugar Scrub Cubes Review

Today I placed another order over on the Marshmallow Blends website, which reminded me that I'd planned to review my last lot of products for you guys! So, here goes; the AppleJack Frost Sugar Scrub Cubes.

These came in a lovely tin with a pretty ribbon tied around it. I got seven cubes in my tin, and I found that I could break the cubes in half and easily have enough product to use over my whole body, making these great value for money. Being a sugar scrub, they're lovely and coarse and you can really feel the exfoliation. They also leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised, but not greasy like some scrubs can. They have the added bonus of smelling absolutely amazing - as Nicoletta describes the fragrance on her website, "A  gorgeous fresh and fruity fragrance with a hint of spice."
The AppleJack Frost Sugar Scrub cubes are available from the Marshmallow Blends site for £5.99.

I really recommend ordering from Nicoletta - her products are gorgeous and extremely reasonably priced, and it's always nice to support small independent businesses, especially when they're run by someone so lovely!

My 50 Follower Giveaway closed at midnight last night and I was honestly amazed at the number of entries! Thank you so much to everyone who entered. Once I'd discounted people who unfortunately hadn't followed the rules, there were 50 valid entries. And the winner, as chosen by Random.org, is...

Daniela from The Wee Blog! Congratulations, Daniela, I'll be emailing you shortly to get your details. As I said in the initial post, you'll have 48 hours to get back to me before I draw another winner!
To everyone else, thank you for entering, and I hope to be able to hold another giveaway again soon!


EDIT: Sadly, Daniela didn't get back to me within the 48 hours so I drew another winner - Laura from A Daisy Chain Dream, who has received her goodies. Congratulations, Laura!

I don't know about you ladies, but I often have trouble finding bras in styles that I like. So, when I received an email from Fiona at Brayola I was intrigued to hear more about the service they ofter!
Essentially, the Brayola website allows you to enter your favourite bras by selecting them from a huge list of brands and styles. Your choices are then compared with other women and you get recommendations for similar styles and sizes. Brayola are also currently running a competition where you enter three of your favourites to have a chance to win a free bra - which I'm not going to say no to!

The website is simple to use and easy to navigate and, although I've found that most of my favourites aren't listed, there's an option to enter the brand and code (found on the label) so that your bra can be added to the database.
The competition is running until the 10th February so what are you waiting for?

(I have not been sponsored in any way for this post; just sharing a useful service with my readers.)

PS, Remember to enter my 50 Follower Giveaway!

OPI Nicki Minaj Mini Collection

Let me start by saying, I do not like Nicki Minaj; I find her voice grating, her lyrics stupid ("You're like slicker than the guy with the thing on his eye"? Really?) and her face infuriating.
All of that aside, I loved the look of the colours in the OPI Nicki Minaj Mini Collection, so when I saw it on BuyaPowa for just £9.50 including postage I may have broken my spending ban (again...) and made a cheeky purchase.

L-R: Metallic 4 Life, Pink Friday, Fly, Did It On 'Em
So does this mean I wouldn't be completely betraying my principles by buying Justin Bieber's perfume...?
