Love Benefit Cosmetics?

Well do I have a treat for you!!

The fabulous Miss Hana Amelia (you'll have seen her photo popping up in most, if not all, of my photo entries!) is launching a V.I.P Benefit counter in House Of Frasers in Glasgow and to celebrate she's offering free Makeup lessons worth £20! All you need to do is drop her an email quoting 'Miss Lottie Lou' at with your name and telephone number and she'll get back to you with details. You can even take a friend along with you and make a day of it :)

I'm so excited!! I've used Benefit for years and can't get enough of it! I LOVE their Badgal lash mascara, couldn't live without it. In my poor student days I couldn't afford to keep up my Badgal habit so I tried to find a cheaper alternative but to no avail. I quickly learnt my lesson with rubbish cheap mascaras and went back to Benefit and haven't looked back since! I could talk all day long about which Benefit products I use and how fabulous they are but I'll let you all find out for yourselves :)

So email her and come play! Guaranteed it's going to be a fun event and everyone is going to leave looking amazing! I'll be there so hopefully I'll bump into some of you :)

Hello! How are we all? As promised here are some photos :)

This was my stall at Granny Would Be Proud in Hillhead Library. Was a slow day for everyone but had good chats with fellow stall holders :)

Now for some photos of fabric :D Yup I'm still buying absurd amounts of fabric, it's so addictive! I could open a fabric shop! Sometimes I think that would be ace...

To see more of my fabric head on over to my Facebook 'fan' page:
Next blog entry will be Rockabilly Rave photos :D
Till then,

Tsk Tsk

So it seems I now only update once a month...that's bad :( My promise to put time aside each week never materialised!
Though I've been on three holidays so I'm going to use that as my excuse! My first was to Download festival, not really my thing but I got a free ticket and I just can't say no to free! Then I went to Rockabilly Rave which was amazing!! So much fun and I miss it :( Then I went to visit friends in Folkestone which was lovely. I also found house a few doors down from them that was a 1930's terraced house with original features including a roll top bath and fireplaces, for sale!! It was beautiful but unfortunately I don't have £129,950 and I highly doubt anyone would give me mortgage for that and even then I don't think I'd be able to afford it! One can dream :)
I have been working in-between too! Full time at the college and I've been on a Business Gateway Course to do my business plan. So now I can apply for start up grants and help :)
And the biggest most exciting thing is I have a stockist in Helensburgh :D They have taken all my random bits and bobs left over from my craft fairs and they've asked for a collection which will occupy the whole window!! So very exciting.
In other news I'm doing another craft fair on Saturday, Granny Would Be Proud in Hillhead Library Glasgow, pop along and say hi!
I'll do a little update with some photos soonish :)
