Monthly Favourites // August

Hello everyone! 

Here is a round up of some products I have been loving through-out the month of August! Some of the product are things I use quite frequently, but that think to be in my monthly favourites list!

Garnier Ultra-Softening Lotion Shea Butter
I have tried a couple of different scents and variations of this Intensive 7 days body lotion and I have liked them all. However I think I would have to say that this is probably my favourite scent of all the Garnier Body lotions. This body moisturiser is defiantly one of the better ones, its absorbs really fast once applied and leaves skin hydrated and moisturised.

Bourjois Blusher 48 Ashes of Roses
I have quite a few different shades of Bourjois Blushers and they have become quite a build-up collection in my make-up stash. This shade is quite a strong and deep rose shade, so with this a little really does go a lonnnggg way!

Sally Hansen Nail polish, Shade: Vitamin Sea
I have tried a few of these Sally Hansen nail polishes and I have loved all of them! But I particularly LOVE this one because of the beautiful shade! I find that these nail polishes are brilliant quality have fantastic results after being applied. 

Burt's Bees Honey and Grapeseed Hand cream
This is a relatively new product to me, but I have been using it non-stop since I bought it. I love using and trying new hand cream and I think this is by far the best smelling hand cream I have used to date. Not to mention it is (in my opinion) a brilliant working product, since beginning to use if I have notice my hands being a lot smoother and in better moisturised condition. 

Real Techniques Contour Brush
This brush was in a set of Real technique brushes which I bought quite a while ago. I think I also purchased a stippling brush and a buffing brush, but this contour brush was my favourite and most used brush. The brush itself, like the other Real techniques brushes, is of great quality and is the perfect shape and size for contouring.

So that is it for this months product favourites. I am going to try my best and be a little more regimented with my posts, as I really want to be writing these type of posts monthly and sticking to it!

Have you tried any of the products above???

L'Oreal Top Coat Nail Confetti

Hello everyone!

 I thought today I would share with you all the Top coat nail confetti from L'oreal. I love the use other sparkly top caot nail polishes, but the black and white confetti top coat, I think is very cute and quirky!

This is the finish result after I applied the black and white top coat confetti to my Models own red nail polish. I really love the results of this nail polish, even after one coat the black and white confetti do show up quite well, however I feel to get a better result at least two coats of confetti should be applied. 

Have you tried any Top Coat nail Confetti???

Bargain Finds...

 Hello there everyone!

Today's post is a little different than my usual posts, but I thought it would be great to share the recent purchases from a charity event. The charity was an animal sanctuary near by, which had lots of stalls and some really great finds!

 I bought these gorgeous scarves for around 50p -£1 each! I absolutely love the vintage print on some of them and I'm very proud of my bargain hunting skills after finding these wee beauties!

August 2014- GlossyBox

Hello everyone! 

Today's post is going to be on what I received inside my August Glossybox! The little insert which you usually find in the boxes, which explains what products you have received and a little information about what the products are. Within this little leaflet was a 'Thank You' section from the Founder and Global CEO of GlossyBox in celebration of Glossyboxes' 3rd Anniversary.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
Even after reading the instructions of this product I was a little confused at what exactly is was (I was convinced it was a conditioner) just shows I shouldn't skim read things! This product is a pre-shampooing treatment, which apparently adds bounce, shine and manageability! Who wouldn't want their hair to have all of those things?!
SkinPep Hydra Sun Defence SPF30 Day Cream
Again this is a brand and product I have never heard of. Considering I live in county where we have more rainy days than sunny ones and I am not going anywhere on holiday any time soon, I'm not sure if I will actually get using this product. Instead, I might pass it on to a family member who is going on holiday, which might be useful to them!

Figs and Rouge Mini hand cream
When I first glanced into my box this was the first product I saw and I have to admit I was worried it was the Figs and Rouge Lip product, which I received in a previous Glossybox. The lip product was a little bit too sticky and grainy for my liking, so I can't wait to see what I make of this product. Although I really do LOVE the packaging of the Figs and Rouge product!!

L'amour Lalique perfume sample
This perfume smells divine! I'm pretty sure I have smelt it before, or at least I know someone who wears it, as it smells really familiar!

Yves Rocher Nail polish #14 Rose
I absolutely love this shade! It actually reminds me of the O.P.I shade Hawaiian Orchid, however this Yves Rocher nail polish seems much more of a deeper and stronger shade of pink, which I love!

Kryolan For Glossybox Highlighter
This is a highlighter made for Glossybox, which is a lightweight cream that can be used on cheekbones or lips for ' a natural looking glow.' I'm really excited to use this product and begin to test it out as it says this product is versatile.

So that is it for this months Glossybox and I'm pleased with the products I have received. I find I say this each time I review or post about what I receive in my Glossyboxes, but I love getting brands I have never heard of and products I most likely would never be able to try!

What do you all think about what I received in this months box??

Burt's Bees Basics Hand cream and Lip balm Review

Hello everyone!

 Today's post is going to be a review post on a product I have been wanting to try for a really long time! I bought the Burt's Bees basics set, which consists of the Honey & Grapeseed Hand cream and the Honey Lip balm, from

 The packaging itself, with the yellow box and little bee, it is overall very cute! And I think this would make a lovely little additional present for someone!

Honey Lip Balm

This is the Honey lip balm which contain vitamin E. The lip balm itself doesn't have a fake honey smell to it, as of course it does say that the products are made with 100% natural ingredients.However I was a little unsure of what the scent of this product was going to be like and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the scent. 

Honey & Grapeseed Hand Cream

This hand cream smells so much better than I could have imagined! The honey mixed with the grapeseed gives such a wonderful scent, which actually last on your hands! The fact that this hand cream's scent lasts is a huge positive for me,I hate when hand cream smells great but the scent and basically the product disappears almost instantly!

So overall I'm so pleased with these two Burt's Bees products! And I can definitely see myself re-purchasing the hand cream in the near future, I am quite addicted to using it already! 

Have you tried any Burt's Bees products? What do you think of them?

Lush Haul...

On my recent trip to Lush, I picked up two of my favourite bath bombs: Space Girl and Think Pink and I also thought I would try something new with the Sakura bath bomb.

This Bath bomb is apparently inspired by the Japanese Cherry Blossoms and smells AMAZING! The fruity and floral scent is mouth-wateringly delicious and I can't wait to try this one! 

I love the shape and look of this bath bomb, also the name! The red dust on top of the space bath bomb have lovely little hints of glitter.

I have tried this 'think pink' bath bomb many times and it is one of my all time favourites. The little flowers are so pretty and once popped into the bath, it not only gives off a lovely scent, but it turns the water a gorgeous redish/pink colour.

Primark Haul

Hello there everyone!

 This little post is just going to be a quick Primark haul (I know another one),
containing my most recent purchases, from my trip to Belfast on a shopping day with a friend!

I think these Disney Sleeping Beauty sock are even cuter than the Barbie ones I bought in Primark a while ago! 0_o 

I just love the colours and the pattern of this scarf. Primark has so many of these lovely scarves to choose from and from just £4.00 they are great value aswell!! 

This blue and turquoise flower necklace was only £4.00 aswell, which I thought was very cheap for such a cute necklace!

So that is it for this post guys, hope you all enjoyed! Have you picked up anything cute in Primark lately??

Princess- Vera Wang

Hello there everyone! 

I received this Vera Wang perfume as a Graduation present in July! And I am very grateful I did, as it is now one of my favourite perfumes of all TIME! 

(Look at that wee bottle! So PRETTY!)

The scent of this perfume is floral and what I would describe as a rich and strong floral scent, rather than a light weak one. 

I think Princess is the appropriate name of this enchanting and rich perfume! It is so easy to wear this perfume at different times of the day and for many different occasions!

I feel like royality using this Vera Wang perfume and this fragrance is most certainly one which I will be purchasing in he near future!

Have you tried Princess by Vera Wang??
