New Apocalips Rimmel Lipgloss Review...

After perusing the shelves of boots I thought, after seeing many ads for these lip glosses, that I would give them a try! There are actually six different shades to try, but below are the three that I decided to purchase.

I have been wearing these lip glosses like crazy, switching shade everyday! I think it's brilliant to have these range of lip glosses which are so strong and powerful in colour and not to mention their staying power when applied.

So here are the swatches of the three shades I purchased. From left to right Steller, Celestial and Apocaliptic. 

Each lip-gloss is £5.99, however at the time when I bought these Boots were doing an offer on these for 2 for £10! I usually don't spend that much on a lip-gloss, but are fantastic and in my opinion definitely worth the money!

P.s I will be giving away one of the Apocalips Lip-glosses in my Giveaway which is coming at the end of this week! So look out for that I you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these lip-glosses and lots of other amazing stuff!!

Lush Haul...

It has been quite a while since I have been in Lush, so I took full advantage while on a trip to Belfast the other day. Is it just me or who else would LOVE to work in Lush???

Usually I only purchase the Lush soaps and the bath ballistics, but I have been reading a lot of wonderful reviews about other lush products. I thought I would give this facial scrub a try and it smells very refreshing, so I can't wait to give this one a go!

I have tried this soap before, and it is actually one of my favorites, I also did a review if this soap a while ago here

After talking to one of the lovely employees in Lush about my need to find a great conditioner or hair mask, she kindly recommend this one for the treatment of dry hair. This hair mask does not smell the nicest, but if it works I really won't mind! 

This bath ballistic is called Honey Bee and smells wonderfully sweet. Ian too excited to try this one and the other products in fact, so look out for a lot of reviews coming soon!! 

Have you tried any amazing product from Lush Lately??

Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nail Treatment (Quick) Review...

Confession time...I have a terrible habit. A habit of biting my nails. (DUNDUNDUN...) Okay so it might not be a big deal to many people as lots and lots of people do it....but the thing it I HATE IT!

 It isn't the act itself I hate, but I really can't stand my nails being really short. As I have this dislike for my nails being short I often wear fake nails, but sadly after removing my fake nails just the other day I found my real nails to be terrible condition...broken, short and very unhealthy looking.

After searching for nail products to help repair my nails, I stumbled upon this Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nail Treatment in Boots. 
It was the 'Maximum Growth' part of this product which really caught my eye and I instantly began picturing my nails grown long and super healthy.

I have only been using this for a couple of weeks now, but I have already notice how much stronger my naul shave become. Which actually surprised me as my nails are usually very brittle and prone to breaking very easily!

July GlossyBox...

I was very excited when I began seeing lots of other bloggers and youtubers' posting photos and videos of the July Glossy Box. I would have paid for the box on it's own... it's a lovely shade of blue and just scream summer! It really makes me want to go to the beach!

At first glance into the box I was very happy with the contents. This fist product which caught my eye was the brand name Essie within the box. At that by itself got me very excited as I have never actually tried any Essie product!! (I know major shocker!!)

These Essie sleek nail sticks look amazing and I can't wait to try them! I haven't tried any nail wraps before, so I will have to experiment with these to see how they turn out! This product from Essie actually costs £9.99 for one set.

I had no idea what this product was until I began reading the description in the booklet. This Anatomicals Spray misty for me facial spritz is a spray to refresh and hydrate the skin. I really liked the fact that this one was a full size, in order for me to really try the product!

Many of the times I have found hair styling product I have shied away from using them for fear of making my hair greasy or sticky. However I have tested this product out very quickly this morning and I really liked the results!I was also quite surprised that this product did add volume and texture to my hair,which I loved!

The two Sleek Pout Paints which I received were 156 Peachy Keen and on the left 161 Minx. Both of these shades are gorgeous and I can't wait to test these little bad boys out! 

And.... finally the last item is Coola Organic Suncare Collection. This is just a little tube of this tinted Mineral Suncare product, but I can't wait to give this product a try, because with the brilliant weather we have been having I'm obsessing with finding really great Suncare products.

Jewellery Storage Ideas...

Hello there! 

I thought today I would share a couple of photos and talk through some of the ways which I store my jewellery! I have tonnes of jewellery and sometimes I do run out of little boxes and places to store them. So I thought I would re-use these glass jars and put them to better use!

The two larger jars used to contain sauces, and my family had set them aside for me...knowing I would find a creative use for them!And smaller jar was actually used to hold a little candle, and once it burnt out I thought it was too cute to just throw away!

I think this is a cheap and super cute way to store jewellery or anything for that matter!

I hoped you liked this post...I have started up a new craft/creative blog Sparkles and Buttons, so if you want check it out!

Organic Surge Super-intensive Daily Moisturiser Review

"Your skin's best friend"

I received this full size pot of Organic Surge Super-intensive Daily Moisturiser for Dry Skin with June's  Glossy box. I was very happy and super excited to try this as for the past few weeks my skin has been very dry! And reading that this product is aimed at nourishes and rehydrating dry skin I was eager to test it out!

The smell of this product is quite unusual in the sense that I have never tried any products with organic rose oil, nor have I ever smelt any! I really did worry at first because the moisturiser has quite a strong fragrance and wondered if it was going to be harsh on my skin.

 However after using this product a lot, my skin has never looked better! And the intriguing scent of the organic rose is actually lovely when I applied it to the skin!

I'm very happy I found this product through GlossyBox and it has certainly helped my skin to become more soft and moisturised!

Viva La Juicy!

After finding out I passed my 2nd year of Uni, I thought I would go out and treat myself...because I don't shop enough!? Anywho...I really loved this perfume when my sister was bought a bottle for her birthday and instead of stealing her perfume I purchased the 50ml bottle. 

I really love the scent of this perfume, with its notes of Jasmine and honeysuckle,this perfume is lovely, fun and floral. I can't get enough of this perfume, but it is slighty expensive (more expensive than I would usually spend on a perfume.)

30ml = £34.00
50ml = £45.00
100ml = £62.00
