#LeedsMarchMeet The Donations - The Welcome Centre

Food Bank


Hi Guys, today is my birthday (my 30th.... cough cough) and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate it than taking down all the items donated and bought with the raffle money from the #LeedsMarchMeet. 

I actually shed a tear when I was sorting all the products into categories. I couldn't believe how generous everyone was and how much difference a few bloggers could make to a few families lives. 

The donations were made to the Welcome Centre in Huddersfield and after taking in a few bags of food just after Christmas and realising just how much my 3 bags were appreciated I knew I had to do something bigger. 

People brought cans of food and sample products along to my meet instead of an entry fee and I was blown away with the generosity of everyone. 


All the items you can see in the above picture were either donated by people or bought with the raffle money.  That's the trolley full, all the bags on the floor and the box on the chairs.

We had a brilliant mix of short stock items including 11 packs of sanitary products, over 20 tins of soup, Razors and a big bag of sweet treats (well Easter is coming up). People also brought in samples of beauty products for treat bags which I think is a brilliant pick me up for the ladies.

When I took them in they were overjoyed with all the bags and gave me a tour of the place and I thought I would share the pictures.

Volunteers spend their time sorting all the products into sections and then putting into bags when people come in needing weekly supplies.

They have individuals using the service to families of 6 so sometimes a lot of food is needed for just one family.

Once again I would just like to say a big thank you for all the support with my meet and I will definitely keep helping this amazing food bank as you never know one day it might be me that needs that little bit of help.

Check out your local food banks and if you have any unwanted beauty samples take them in. You never know that face cream may just put a smile on someones face.

A Beautiful Accessory

accessories

Spring is here and the weather is starting to warm up. This Spring/Summer I really want to accessorise my outfits, I really think jewellery finishes an outfit off. 

I love a good layered bracelet and this aqua and gold bracelet is brilliant for this time of year. 
I really like how all the bracelets are a little different with 3 small beaded bracelets 3 medium and then one big statement bracelet with a gorgeous ring detailing and a little tassel.

I think this will look lovely as a beach accessory for summer holidays and can't wait to see how many different outfits I can pair this with, and for £5.99 (here) I think people can really get there money out of this little beauty.

Makeup Revolution' s Disappear to the Beyond

Im a sucker for a nude palette, do I have enough? ... Honestly yes. Will I buy more, almost definitely. This one from Makeup Revolution has a lovely mix of pink, browns and creams so had to be part of my collection.

I wouldn't say the packaging is the best on these palettes but they do their purpose and considering how affordable the products are this isn't something to moan about. You can see the shades through, so if you do have a few of these palettes you can find the shades you want quickly with having to open them all.

On to the important part the payoff. Down below I have swatched each colour with one stroke and as you can see they are pretty pigmented. A couple of colour are faint but with a primer I think these will show up a bit more.  I didn't notice much fall down when applying to my eye either which is always something to be pleased about.

They also have quite a creamy constancy and are very build-able.

Im pretty impressed with this palette and at £4 wow. If you guys see the Disappear to the Beyond palette I urge you to swatch it.

After trying this and their Iconic Smokey Palette (reviewed here) I won't hesitate buying more Palettes from Makeup Revolution.

What do you think, can you have enough nude palettes?
