Preparing for MCR Fashion Week!

One of the mighty perks of being a blogger has to be the freebies. It's a happy little extra every now and then and often I get gifted handy and useful things that I want to share with you lot.
A few days ago a parcel landed on my doorstep from Manchester Fashion Week full of amazing goodies to get us official bloggers ready for MCRFW starting in April.

Redken Duo Shield 07 Gel Cream 
- Protects your colour and creates a bouncy shiney blowdry.
Redken are known for their quality hair care products and I'm keen to get using this. It's going to help to achieve a flyaway-free blow dry for everyday of Manchester Fashion Week whilst protecting my hair from heat damage in the process.

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara 
- For instant full body and volume!
Yikes - a Lancome Mascara luxury sample which comes with a large curvy wand to produce volume in one step. It's said to create high volume and thicker looking lashes. I think a good mascara can be all you need for a week of fashion shows and this handy travel sized version will do just nicely!

Balmi Blackcurrant Flavour 
- to keep lips mousturised everyday.
I love these Balmi lipbalms. I now have a Mint flavour and this Blackcurrant flavour. They not only look great when you pull one out of your bag but they keep your lips moisturised for ages! I've just heard about the Coconut flavoured one and I must have it!

Lancome Genifique Yeux Eye Cream 
- to recover tired looking eyes for early mornings.
After too many late nights and early mornings, dark circles and heavy eyes can start to creep in. These mini pots of Lancome's Genifique eye cream are soothing and smell lovely. Pop a little around the eye area every morning and evening for a brighter complexion. 

Inner Me Lustrous Locks Vitamin Complex
- for beautiful healthy hair in just 2 weeks.
I was a bit scared when I first saw these Lustrous Locks Vitamins! They are huge! I'm not a big vitamin taker but I am curious about these. I'm still undecided on whether I will give them a go. I understand the benefits taking vitamins can have but ones designed just for hair...? You take two a day with a meal and can expect to see healthy lustrous locks in two weeks. Has anyone tried these?

Moustache Ring from
- for a cute fashion week accessory. 
Is Fashion Week complete without a humorous moustache ring? I think not! I like how this one from is outlined in gold.

- to refuel when on the go! 
Yey FOOD! What goodie box is complete without some tasty items. Teapigs are big news right now and these caffeine free super fruit ones are a great way to start the day (or end it.) I'll also be tucking into my healthy PopChips and not-so-healthy MegaLoad Peanut Butter Cups during Fashion Week to keep myself going. 

Hotel Chocolat Milk Oblivion 
- when the week's over - everyone needs a treat! 
Mum was delighted when she saw these. And I can understand why. Surely the best part of the goodie hamper was seeing this HUGE box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates sitting in there. This is a mega box of delicious chocolates and I know this because I have tried and tested Hotel Chocolat products before. They are probably my favourite special occassion chocolate treat and the flavours they come up with are extraordinary! I can't wait to sit down after a long Fashion Week to these (if they last until then....)
