I Have quite a few hobbies hahaa maybe too much time on my hands… I’m my own worst critic when it comes to my hobbies its never good enough maybe why i don’t stick to one hobby :D Please feel free to comment below and tell me what you enjoy dong ;D

Normally pink is not my colour but the dewy fresh skin is all in this winter so ill be giving this pink cream blusher a go. I don’t normally use cream blushers either i find them too cakey,But the texture of this one seems to blend well I’m excited to try it.
Overall Rating 8/10

August 2013 Glossy Box :)

Hellloo Ladies

Soo Its Time for my latest Installments of my most recent glossybox’s (yes there late again i know im sorry) But The august glossybox really didnt inspire me to review it at all. It wasnt the best glossy box ever but it was ok. And then i received septembers and it is amazing so that reveiw will be following shortly :D.

IMG_0609 IMG_0607IMG_0608

When i first opened this months box i was SO excited ! it was Perfect timing for my holiday to greece  “Glossybox Highflyers” then i opened it and didnt feel so excited.

all the stuff inside the box was great but didn’t really fit the theme??

Mini Treats No.1: Keratin Smooth Concentrated Treatment Shot

IMG_2584

Full Size Costs: £5.50 for 300ml
I Received: 15ml
Would I Purchase This Product? Probably Not
With having frizzy unmanageable hair I’m always on the lookout for the next best taming product but this just didn’t seem to do it for me.the first problem was there wasn’t enough in the sample to do my whole hair so i just did the ends. it does smell very nice but with it being a concentrated shot i was expecting really good results and my hair didn’t fell or look that much smoother or tamed.
Overall Rating: 4/10
Mini Treat No.2:  UrbanVeda Turmeric + botanics Radiance Day Cream
IMG_2816
Full Size Costs: £14.99 For 50mls
I Received: 10ml
Would I Purchase This Product? Maybe
I have Terrible skin as you might know by now so i like to try anything that promises beautiful glowing skin. This Product is okay. it smells divine good enough to eat… but it makes your skin feel tight almost like a facemask but once you have got past that it leaves skin brighter and smoother but i have used better products.
Overall Rating: 7/10
Mini Treat No.3: Oceane Make up remover Pen
IMG_2585
Full Size Costs: £5.00
I Received: The Full Product
Would I Purchase This Product? No
I wouldn’t purchase this product as its pointless to me as a individual personally if i smudge my eyeliner i have always used a cotton bud or a baby wipe on the end of my finger i wouldn’t pay £5.00 for something that does what i already have things to do.iv never needed one before and i doubt i will need one in the future and mine was printed with a date from last October? and it was dusty and looked like it had been in a storage cupboard for a few months.
Overall Rating: 0/10
Mini Treat No.4: Jelly Pong Pong 2 In 1 Shadow Liner.
IMG_2587
Full Size Costs: £10.50 For 1 Pencil
I Received: Full Size
Would I Purchase This Product? I most definitely would but i don’t have to yet cause i have a full size one ! :D:D

I love Jelly Pong Pong And i have glossy box to thank for introducing me to the brand as i had never heard of it before. its just a really good all rounder kind of makeup to have. this pencil is great it works as a eyeshadow for a really deep seductive smokey eye or a nice sharp line across the eyelid for a neat tidy all day long look its great i Love it!

Overall Rating: 10/10

Mini Treat No.5: Emite Eyelash Curlers

IMG_2817

Full Size Costs: £20,00
I Received: -
Would I Purchase This Product? Well No But i wouldn’t have to cause i already have them.
What can i say about these they are very expensive eyelash curlers and i don’t mind blowing the budget on beauty products normally but these are ridiculously priced i would never purchase them myself. i don’t normally curl my eyelashes because they are naturally long and wispy but i just used these to see if they were worth the money and for me personally i didn’t notice anything dramatically different about my eyes maybe people who don’t have wispy eyelashes got a better result from them still a very generous gift though .
Thats All For August’s Glossybox Overall It wasn’t too bad but nothing i could really use for “High Flying” it just didn’t tie in with the theme in my opinion but its not a reflection on glossybox they are pretty much amazing every month. even though i wasn’t too excited about the box i still received extraordinary value for money.
Until next time ladies

IMG_2402IMG_2403

Full Size Costs: £6.00 for 100ml
I Received: The Full 100ml
Would I Purchase This Product?
I do really like this product especially in the hot weather were having at the moment.it smells rather nice its much like a soapy kind of smell.very refreshing But i started using this and the next day i had a breakout around my chin. I’m not saying it definitely was this product cause it might not of been but theres always a possibility it could of been and seeing as i spend most of my time trying to control my skin and outbreaks i wouldn’t want to add to it.

I Received:25ml
Would I Purchase This Product? Yes 
I love This Product! it is perfect for my hair. I do have natural curly hair anyway it was straightened at the time but i added the bamboo spritz and it just controlled and enhanced my natural curls. i think this product is perfect for when i go on holiday its quick easy and not too badly priced. it did take the whole 25ml to achieve this look but i do have a lot of hair and its long. but i would defiantly recommend this product its a summer must have.
Overall Rating: 9/10
Mini Treat No.3: Coola Organic Sun-care Collection
IMG_2406
Full Size Costs: £29.99 For 50ml
I Received: 7ml
Would I Purchase This Product: hmm Maybe
I Like this product it does its job it provides brilliant sun protection and is smooth and gentle on skin but i think its a tad pricey and there are many high street alternatives that work just aswell.
Overall Rating: 7/10
Mini Treat No.4: Essie Sleek Sticks
IMG_2327IMG_2396
                                       IMG_2397
Full Size Costs: £9.99 For One Full Set
I Received: One Full Set
Would I Purchase This Product? Yes
I was sooooo excited to use these as i have just ordered a set from Avon.i will be doing a Essie vs Avon At a later date :D. I like them i love the effect the idea of them no more waiting for nail polish to dry.its every girls nightmare you have just perfectly painted all of your nails and the phone rings BOOM Smudge! Nightmare! and to add insult to injury its normally a sales call!… anyway they are quite easy to use its the first time iv ever done it and you get in the kit a mini nail file to finish off. but thats the part i struggled with i could size them up perfectly and smooth them down but when it came towards the free edge of the nail i struggled to get them to smooth out and when i trimmed the ends with the file they didn’t adhere properly to the nail and lifted very shortly after. but i would definitely give them another go.
Overall Rating: 7/10
Mini Treat No.5: Sleek Makeup Pout Paint

                                                              IMG_2405
Full Size Costs: £4.99 for 8ml
I Received: 2x Full Size 8ml Tubes
Would I Purchase This Product? Yes
Before i start i hate my lips there a bit thin and I’m no Angelina Jolie so the pictures aren’t perfection but it was to demonstrate the pigment in these pout paints.! I LOVE them!! and i only used a tiny tiny dab on my lips! i especially love Minx.its so subtle and natural but still adds oomph and volume to your lips the mauve over is a little to bright for everyday but for a night-out or a fancy dress its perfect! i wouldn’t mind purchasing the electric blue or bright silver to achieve a more vibrant coral colour or a more vibrant pink that seems to be soo in this season. thats another thing you can mix them with other lipsticks and gloss’s to brighten or add vibrancy a definite make up must have!

Lots Of Lovely Mini Treats (Another nail polish) Eeeeeek

Mini Treat No.1: Monu Spa Hand And Nail Cream 50ml

IMG_2351

Full Size Costs: £10.95 50ml
I Received: The Full 50ml
Would i Purchase This Product?: YesI got the full 50ml of this mini treat and i would defiantly buy it again.
its light and refreshing on hands and doesn’t leave a thick sticky residue which i hate! thats why I’m not a huge fa of hand creams my mum always ends up with them but not this one.It has a citrus like fragrance to it which is nice and pleasant.and leaves hands and nails moisturised and soft. :D 

Overall Rating: 9/10

Mini Treat No.2:Organic Surge Shine Boost Conditioner 200ml

IMG_2371

Full Size Costs: £5.99 200ml

I Received: 200ml

Would i Purchase This Product?  Most likely not only because it just doesn’t do much for my hair type.

This product is Brilliant for so many reasons its natural and organic which is a great bonus for hair as you don’t have lots of harsh chemicals damaging your locks.its also against animal testing which is fantastic.its lightweight and does add some shine to hair.the only down side is the smell isn’t great. and for me personally it just doesn’t suit my hair type. but its still great for those emergency situations of running out of conditioner.
Overall Rating: 5/10
Thats the box paid for in 2 mini treats :D Glossy box is Amazing value.!

Mini treat No.3: Growth Mascara By Gosh 10ml

IMG_2373IMG_2386

Full Size Costs: £8.49 10ml

I Received: 10ml

Would i Purchase This Product? Yes Another Full size product!!
I would buy this again but i have already been spoilt with the jelly pong pong mascara when i first read the tube i didn’t really bother with it i thought it was just a standard mascara (proves how much influence packaging has) Do not be deceived this mascara is equally as good and thats only one coat of it imagine 3 or 4 fora night out. Brilliant product!
Overall rating: 9/10

Mini Treat No.4: Figs&Rouge Lip Balm Cherry Blossom 12.5ml

IMG_2372IMG_2390

Full Size Costs: £5.00 12.5ml

I Received: 12.5ml Another Full size :D:D:D

Would i Purchase This Product? Yes
I like this product it has a Amazing smell, good enough to eat :) it does what it says on the tube it nourishes softens and soothes! and it also it leaves a very subtle sheen and colour perfect for all year round.
Overall Rating:8/10

Mini Treat No.5: MeMeMe Long lasting nail gloss 12ml

IMG_2366IMG_2395

Full Size Costs: £5.00 12ml

I Received: 12ml

Would i Purchase This Product? No
I really don’t like this product well this particular shade of this product anyway shade is 67 Graceful. as you can see from the image above there is just no pigment to the nail polish! none at all its not all that shiny and just doesn’t really do it for me.the only thing i liked about the polish was the applicator.
Overall Rating: 1/10

The New Me

Hello Ladies

Iv not posted in a while because iv been sooo busy with my new health and fitness regime enjoying the sunshine with family (we never see the sun in England so when it comes out everybody runs out the house and crams into parks and pubs) we have to make the most of it.

Anyway this post is mainly about the new diet I have started well iv been on it 2 weeks now and iv lost 6lb!!!!

Ok so for a long time iv always been chubby well bigger than all the other girls and Wobblier so it feels anyway.and I have done fad diet after fad diet looking for a quick fix to loose weight once I even went to the extreme of spending £80.00 on a juicer and £100.00 on fruit let me tell you now spinach and cucumber juice is vile!! That lasted one day and I sent the juicer back and give the fruit away… I have done some extreme things in my life to loose weight none of which has worked until now!

It’s basically a meal supplement plan called celebrity slim and you can get soups or shakes ( I cannot stand shakes and I would say every diet has a shake in somewhere) YAK!! But I adapted it to my liking and on a typical day now I eat…

breakfast
Fruit and yoghurt with variations of nuts and seeds

Dinner
A celebrity slim soup they are really filling they taste like cupa soup

Tea
Either weight watchers meal with vegetables
Or
Fresh fish (haddock,sea bass,tuna,etc) with vegetables

And I do exercise my favourite thing in life is to dance I used to dance professionally as a child but money got tight and I had to stop but I never give up my passion so when a dancing exercise routine came up I was more than happy to oblige and its FREE! And let’s be honest who can afford fancy expensive gym memberships these days and it takes about half an hour before bed. I Love it!

I diet and exercise religiously Monday to Friday then have a treat on a Saturday and diet again Sunday restart the next phase of exercise on Monday and to my surprise It actually works.

I also use a app on my phone to roughly count my calories throughout the day this helps a lot and once you start looking at calories you can’t stop!! And that’s when you start to realise why and how people end up overweight.

I think a diet isn’t really a diet it’s a lifestyle change that you have to be ready to make wether it’s the celebrity slim plan or my new mindset either way its working and I love it :)

I’ll keep you updated :D

Don’t forget ladies Willpower is the key

Ciao

Current Face Favourites

My Current Face Favourites

Hi Ladies
Iv not been on for a while I know :( my Internet broke :( but its all ok now and I’m back online :D Yaay….so anyway here is a list and short Review of my favourite face products at the minute I hope you enjoy follow and comment below :)

20130523-125743 PM.jpg

Face

Mac Prep + Prime Skin Brightening Serum
I apply this as a base for my makeup as it really seems to rehydrate the skin and makes a brilliant base for anything that goes on top of it. One of my favourite things about this product is its lightweight and silky to touch and you only need a tiny but for the whole face!!
I Love This Stuff

Beautiful Movements Prime & Create Mixing Medium
On top of the Mac Prep + Prime brightening serum I applied this I don’t normally but it promised me a flawless coverage and that is the one thing I try to achieve every time I do my makeup! It goes on quite greasy but drys to a kind of velvety finish which is nice.

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Spf10
I love this foundation I apply it with my fingertips and it just melts onto the skin and gives a nice coverage without feeling cakey and thick.i start from the middle of my face and blend out wards I add a tiny but more over my cheeks as these are my badly scarred areas.it gives a fresh faced dewy Finish which is nice :). I would love a foundation to give me 10000% Coverage and supermodel airbrushed skin but I have not found one yet so i really don’t see the point in going orange and having layers and layers of foundation just to look awful I would rather have one or 2 nice fresh layers and have A few blemishes. Layers of foundation solve nothing! But it is all personal choice of cause.

Mac Studio Fix Powder shade Nc30
I apply this with a brush instead of the pad that comes with it.if you have no liquid foundation on this is great for wearing on its own applied with a pad but if you have a liquid base underneath and apply it with a pad it tends to make your face dull and cakey…. So I dust this across my T-Zone as that’s where I get oily mostly :)

No.07 Sunkissed Bronzing Pearls
I Love These I have used these ever since I can remember and they last for ages…there’s no need to use excessive amounts just a swirl around the balls and a sweep across the cheeks and outside of the face.

Eyes

Optrex Brightening Eyedrops
Sometimes I get tired itchy red eyes, so I drop 2 drops of this in each eye and my eyes instantly look bright awake and clean.they stay hydrated all day and there great for when your not had enough sleep.

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes
I have already done a Review on this product I Absolutely LOVE it! Nice long separated full lashes for a fresh faced natural look.i love it that much iv added it to my everyday routine :) Highly recommended :)

That my current and up to date day time makeup routine I hope you enjoyed it and feel free to comment below :)

Ciao
