Hello lovely people, Pinch and a punch for the first of the month, no return. Ha ha ha!
It may be the 1st of March but I have just got my April issue of Marie Claire magazine, and this month there is a FREE full size lip gloss from Neal’s Yard Remedies, worth £9.50 inside! Cover girl this month is the wonderful Katy Perry looking absolutely beautiful, the colour scheme is purple with Katy wearing pretty lilac. It perhaps isn’t quite as colourful a front cover as usual for the magazine, never mind it doesn’t detract away from the great reads and articles inside.
As usual there is always a little sample or two tucked away on advertisers pages, for example this Calvin Klein perfume “Endless Euphoria” which is lighter and more floral than the original “Euphoria”
Two more fragrance samples inside are from Issey Miyake. L’eau D’issy for women and L’eau D’issy pour homme.
Now this a sample I am eager to try out. Garnier Beauty Oil for the body, an oil infused nourishing lotion. It has Argan, Macadamia, Almond and Rose oils within it. Sounds utterly divine!!
Now I actually don’t know what to think of the free gift in this months issue. It’s a lip gloss from Neal’s Yard Remedies in Goji Berry. I suppose that could be the colour, the flavour and also the fragrance from it, it does feel slightly sticky on the lips though. Still I can’t complain it was a “freebie” after all. There is a reader offer from Neal’s Yard too, 20% off voucher. Fill out the coupon inside Marie Claire and take it your nearest stockist, or enter the code at the online checkout.
You can also check out the Spring/ Summer range from Mango with this free brochure, very nice.
The fashion pages feature floral prints, monochrome, metallic and 90s trends. There’s a 20% off at Alex Monroe for readers of Marie Claire plus a competition to win jewellery and a signed copy of his book. Read the story about Heather Abbott who had her life changed when she was a victim of the terrorist bombing at the Boston marathon, lastly read the interview with Katy Perry………. and that is all I am letting you in on, you will just have to go and pick up a copy for yourselves. Enjoy!
