Favourites and xmas gifts

So I havent blogged since about september :( alot changed and I went back to uni and have alot of work to do, so I kind of lost interest for a while, I have been still keeping up with all your blogs though. Iv had the urge to do a post for a while now and have a free evening so here it is :)

I thought I would start with showing you some of the products which I love right now.
First is Benefit Coralista blusher which I won in a blog giveaway a few month ago and I absolutely love it!! I will definatly be buying it again when it runs out, although I have been using it daily and I still have loads left so hopefully that wont be any time soon!
I also love the 17 Instant glow bronzing powder in light, I have been using this for atleast 6 month and its definatly the best bronzer for me and its pretty cheap at about £3.50 in boots so Im really happy with it!

I tend to use my E.L.F powder brush most with my face products, if not then I use one of my elizabeth arden kabuki brushes.

Next, are 2 lip products that I have been using alot, on the left is No7 sheer temptation lipstick in Smoulder 30, It looks really red but it is very sheer and just gives a lovely colour to the lips without looking to drastic and its perfect for everyday or for a night out! On the right is an e.l.f mineral lipstick which cost me £3.50 in nicely nude, i was expecting a nude lipstick when i ordered this, but its more pink and im glad as I love it, just right for wearing anytime.

Here are 2 collection 2000 mascaras I use at the moment, the waterproof volume sensation in black which I have been using since august and the longer lash false lash effect mascara in ultra black which I have been using a few weeks! both of these were about £3 each and they are amazing for the price. Before buying these I was using the max factor false lash effect mascara which was really good but I definatly prefer these 2 for the price as they work just as well and I would definatly recommend them!

Also thought I would show you a few beauty bits I got for xmas, I didnt get much this year as there is alot going on as my grandma is very ill in hospital so everyones been to preoccupied for xmas so I was pleased to just get a few bits my mum had managed to pick up as I wasnt expecting anything :)
She got me the no7 colour collection which comes with a make up bag, purse, mirror. eyeshadows in comet, vivid violet, midnight blue, twilight, light shade and organza, lipstick in cameo, sheer temptation lipstick in entice. Translucent face powder, high lights illuminating powder in island glow, and natural blushes in petal and soft damson.
Its really lovely and the pallettes have special holes in the tops so they can fit in the make up bag like a folder!

She also got me a soap and glory gift set which includes the flirtigo spray on body moisturising mist which smells gorgeous!!, long distance shimmer and a sexy motherpucker lipgloss in a lovely pink which Im yet to use.

Lastly here is my dress for new years eve, I got it for £10 in the sale at Internationale today, Itas quite short so Im debating wearing tights but Ill see how cold it is tomorrow. Im not sure what to do with my make up or hair yet, any ideas about what will go well with the dress would be great :)

Im not sure on my shoes yet either, I dont want to go really high as there is still alot of snow and ice around where I live and Im pretty sure snow, ice and platforms dont mix very well, especially not when your drunk! I got these boots in the sales at New look on boxing day, they were reduced from £50 to £25 and I am considering wearing them with the dress, but Im not sure if they match very well :/

Sorry for the long rambling post, hope everyone had a great christmas and enjoys the new year!

New lip products

Lately I seem to be buying a lot of lip products, untill I started reading blogs I didnt own any lipsticks but now I love them and they are fast becoming one of my fave peices of make up!
Recently I have bought quite a few and here they are:
Left to Right, (Back), w7 Apricot Brandy, Maybelline Color sensational in 112 Ambre Rose, Bourjois lovely rouge in Rose Essential, Natural collection sheer natural lip colour in Sorbet, Natural collection moisture shine lipsticks in Crimson and Candy mist.
(Front) No7 High shine lipglosses in Flirt (peachy) and Caress (pink)

This is them all without flash

And with flash.

Id have to say that one of my faves is the w7, its such a natural lovely colour and only cost £1 from T J hughes and another would be the maybelline ambre rose, its such a gorgeous colour and lasts for ages. I got this one on offer at Boots as part of the new range. Im keen to try out some of the other colours, I was having a look today and there is another in Hollywood red which looks lovely.
I got the natural collection lipsticks today on a 3 for 2 offer so I got all 3 for £3.90 in Boots! I really wanted a wearable red lipstick as being fair skinned I find dark colours very draining and Im hoping with abit of fake tan the crimson one will work out for me! Going to go back and get 3 more tomorrow I think as I have over £5 in points and there were quite a few more of their lipsticks which I liked.
Also, check out this great give away over at Just Jen, there are some great prizes! and watch out my giveaway soon, I have to buy a few more prizes yet though.

Im back with wedding photos!

Hiya everyone, so firstly I want to say sorry for this being my first post in 2 weeks! I have been going through a horrible time having split up with my boyfriend who I was with for 3 years and I havent felt up to doing anything! So my first post is about my older sisters wedding which I was a bridesmaid at on saturday 29th august! It was such a lovely day and here are alot of photos from the day: (click on them to see them in alot better quality, not sure why they are looking crappy on here)

This is me on the right, my younger sister in the middle and my sisters kids before the ceremony started,

And again with my grandma

This is my sister and her husband after the ceremony when they signed the register

The bride outside the church :)

Me, my mum and my sister

My sister and her husband again

Me and my sister at the reception, I was pretty drunk by this point..

The married couples first dance which was the cutest thing ever

And me and a friend..

Here is the make up which I used on the day!

I used:

  • Loreal studio secrets smoothing resurfacing primer

  • Collection 2000 sheer moist foundation in sheer porcelain

  • E.l.f under eye concealer and highlighter

  • Collection 2000 volume sensation in waterproof (amazing)

  • Natural collection eye shadows in Butterscotch and Willow

  • Natural collection blush in Pink cloud

  • Sleek storm palette

  • Mac eye kohl in teddy

  • 17 bronzing powder in light

  • E.l.f powder brush

  • Elizabeth arden kabuki brush

  • Maybelline color sensational in 11 Ambre rose

  • 17 High gloss nail polish in Raspberry mocha

That seems alot now that I have written it out in a list lol.

I am loving collection 2000 so much at the moment, its so cheap but works so well, the sheer moist foundation is amazing for me as it just feels so smooth and covers my eczema where as other brands just seem to stick to it, and the volume sensation mascara is amazing too, just as good as the false lash effect I usually use, I have since bought this in the normal non waterproof version too!

Hope this wasnt to photo heavy and boring :)

nail polishes and new blush

Today I used my no 7 £5 voucher in Boots to get one of the Stay perfect nail colours in 95 which is Sunset, its a lovely red, really wanted something that will be nice through autumn and winter rather than the brights I have been wearing alot over summer and this seems perfect, I think I only had to pay about an extra £1.50 for this so was a bargain really :)

I also got a top coat from a make up stall, this one is Sally Hansen maximum growth quick dry top coat, I dont have a top coat and this was only £2 so had to get this, hopefully will be having less chipped nails from now on and this claims to dry colour in 30 seconds!

Also on the make up stall I saw a selection of gorgeous blushes from the make w7 which is all pretty cheap, these were silky blush, and they all looked gorgeous! there was a selection of 4 colours and I got mine in 02, which is more of a peachy pink, looks very pale on my photo and the swatch is rubbish but its so nice! and this was only £2.99, there was a lovely rosey pink too and I want that one next time I am in Bury.
This feels really creamy and smooth and I cant wait to use it! looks more expensive than it is too, it came in a box then inside a small velvetly pouch which I thought was a nice touch! Have never seen these before anywhere else so I was impressed!

Wednesday, 19 August 2009


Here is my nail of the day, I got this sally hansen polish from T J hughes a while ago for £1.99 when my nails were looking bad and I wanted to paint them in work but never got round to it. It is Hard as wraps in Mauve creme. The bottle says it contains acrylic gel and nylon to help them last longer! Im not sure Im too keen on the colour, its a bit plain and quite a dull pink but it seems a good quality!

I also got a few bits from elf when my sister recently placed an order, I got 3 things from the normal range for £1.50 each. I got the foundation brush, I havent used this yet but it seems good enough, its soft and I am looking forward to using it tomorrow!
I also the 2 nail polishs, 1 which is a new one to the website called chocolate, which I must say doesnt look much like the swatch in the bottle, Its a really dark brown and I am interested to see how it looks when I use it. The second is in Light pink, which looks really pretty, I love the bottles too from elf with the detail of the polish spilling over the sides, its cute.

This is the chocolate nail polish, I was hoping it might be a similar cheaper alternative to the nails inc jermyn street I have been using recently but unfortunatly its nothing like it, its alot more of a rich dark brown :(

On another note, I tried doing a french braid in my hair today, I have had this done by a fried before but this was my first attempt and it took me loads of tries to get it even resembling a plait, and this is the finished attempt below, has anyone got any tips on how to do this better as I really like how it looks when done properly. I had to use lotsa clips cos my fringe was poking out, when my friend did it this didnt happen so not sure how to sort this out either?

Also, sorry it looks greasy, havent been anywhere today and I was just trying to do it at home.
Any ideas would be great!

Kreativ blogger TAG

I was tagged by Gillian with this KreativBlogger tag. For this tag you have to post 7 random faces about youself which I always find really hard to think of!

1)I reallly love reading, I have the equivalent of w h smith in the corner of my room haha, really should get some kind of storage or sell some or something.

2) I have the worst motivation to do revision and things like that at uni, I leave things then have to cram and feel rubbish instead of planning properly!

3) I love making shopping lists, makes shopping more fun for me for some reason!

4) I dont like dogs much, I used to love them and really wanted one but recently I find them really scary, my grandma has a labrador which wants to jump up all the time which I hate!

5) I dont like using cutelry or plates, cups etc in cafes and other peoples houses, dont like thinking about other people using them, :s.

6) I have an obsession with smints, not sure why, just eat so many and have done for years.

7) I am a rubbish swimmer, not sure why as I had lessons all the time when I younger but Im really crap! when I go swimming I always feel like the lifeguards are judging my swimming skills which makes me even worse haha.

I tag my followers! x

Nails inc NOTD

This is the Nails Inc Jermyn street which I got free from the notw offer, I put this on a few days ago with 2 coats and I love it, even my sister has knicked it cos she likes it so much too! It looks a bit weird in my photo, but its a really nice creamy brown, this went on really well but I have to say it chipped really easily at work today, and now I have 2 fingers with half of it missing and I havent really done to much, I will be reapplying so hopefully it will last abit longer next time. I dont think that I would ever pay full price for a Nails Inc polish though.

Few bargain make up buys and prize :)

I recently won 1st prize in a giveaway on the lovely Elle's blog and my prizes arrived today! I got the sleek storm palette, a barry m dazzle dust in 58 which is such a pretty pink (sorry just realised you cant see it in the photo), gosh lipstick in darling and a mac lipstick in hue!
I love hue so much already, I think its going to be my fave lipstick, its a nudeish pink, very wearable!
This is a close up of the storm palette, the colours are so gorgeous, there is a mix of neutrals, mostly with shimmer but a few matte ones too, perfect for using everyday and I cant wait to play around with those!

So thanks so much Elle!

So on to the bargains I got today whilst out in town after work....
I wasnt going to spend any money today but I couldnt resist, the plan was to avoid boots as I cant help it in there but then my mum went in to get a prescription and I remembered seeing a blog yesterday about a great free gift when you spent £5 on 17 products so I thought that wasnt too bad to spend and Id get more :) so I got the 17 skin perfecting shine free foundation in natural, this was about £5.37 and has spf 12 in it too, this seems good so far I put some on when I got home and seemed great, will use it properly tomorrow.
So on to the free gift! Its a palette called the 17 bronzed and gorgeous summer glow kit and it comes with 2 lovely neutral eye shadows, a bronzer, a lipgloss, a bronzing brush and a double ended eyeshadow applicator. I love the eyeshadows and the bronzer, they both seem really good, definatly worth £5 on its own Id say. so if you are considering buying anything from 17 make sure you take up this offer!
Here is a swatch of the foundation, Im very fair and this seems a good shade for me hopefully!

Also today my sister wanted to go to Ethel austins for some cheap baby clothes for my nieces doll, I didnt even know this shop still existed so I was suprised when I saw they sold makeup! I got 2 things for £1 each, a lip balm from a range called I love.. and its so yummy, the flavour is strawberries and milkshake and it smells sooo nice! its a big pot too! I also got a Rimmel wear maxx nail polish in 345 Pop apricot, which is pink with a hint of shimmer and coral, havent tried it yet but had to get it for £1!

Also there is a great giveaway over at blogspot beauty! check it out!

Free Nails inc polishes and hen night

My nails inc polishes finally call came, 1 came last week and the last yesterday so there was a big gap. These all cost £1 with the offer from a newspaper, sorry cant remember which it was, but Im abit confused as to why only one has the proper design on the bottle with the hands while the other two just look cheap.. Has anyone else noticed this on their bottles?
I got (left-right) China town, Jermyn street and basil street. They all seem like nice colours, I tried china town the other day and that seems a really nice bright shade and I think the other two will be really good for the winter, I will do a post when I have used them properly and can judge how good they are.

Also I know this has nothing to do with make up but I went out for my older sisters hen night on saturday night as she is getting married in just over 2 weeks on august 29th. I wasnt going to go as Im skint but my boyfriend decided he was going out so I went too, I had about 5 mins to get ready and luckily found a red dress as the theme was red devils. This is me on the right looking like crap with my 2 sisters, the one in the middle is the one who is getting married. Anyway it was a fun night even though I didnt drink much as I get awful hangovers, but my fave bit was getting to wear my most favourite shoes!

I got them from T K Maxx last year for about £40 and they are Betty Jackson Studio and I love them so much, they are a lovely dark blue and are really high but also really comfortable as they have a bit of a platform at the front so I can walk properly in them..

I love them!

Finally, I know this post has gone on about alot of random crap but I just had to show you my new bag from Debenhams which I have got for uni, it was £30 and its a pale blue, for some reason this photo makes it look really dull but its lovely in real life I promise, its medium size and has handles plus a strap so tyou can wear it over your body which is what I wanted as I hate carrying heavy bags and getting dead arms. Im actually really looking forward to going back to uni, Im at that stage of the summer where Im bored and I actually feel like coursework and stuff would be interesting but I know Ill be hating it within a few days when I go back! I have even bought a pack of pens from wilkinsons ready for going back, this was £2 for them all! highlighters and everything!

First mini Lush buys :)

I read so many good things about Lush on all your blogs and I have been wanting to go for ages but the nearest store is in Manchester I think and I never make it down there, so when I spotted one in the trafford centre earlier this week I went straight in. I hardly had any money and I think I was abit overcome by the smell but I loved it and walked around amazed at all the things for awhile, but I only got 2 things..

I got a lovely face mask called Oatifix, it has oats and bananas in it and smells like flapjack! This is supposed to be really good for sensitive dry skin and when I mentioned to the sales girl that I had eczema on my face she said it would be great for me so I snapped this up for £4.95, I plan to use it this weekend as at the moment Im doing 7am starts at work and trying to get early nights as I have no energy for anything, Im so pathetic.

I also got a soap called Honey I washed the kids and this smells so nice, I showed it to my boyfriend before and he looked excited as he thought he could eat it, was very dissapointed when he found out it was soap haha, then he sat smelling it for 5 mins. I have heard this is good for dry skin so cant wait to try this out either, my block cost about £3.30.
I am definatly going to go back to Lush when I get some money to spare so has anyone any recommendations about which products are the best?

Yesterday I got a postcard thing through the post from boots saying that if you buy any 2 products (1 being skin care) from the clinique counter you could get a bag of summery freebies, I was all set to rush down there yesterday cos I love freebies but then I noticed it didnt start untill today. I sent my mum down today to get me the full size versions of the face wash and clarifying lotion that I got in the 3 step routine with my dramatically different moisturizing lotion. I used these for about 2 weeks and my skin was really clear and I had been meaning to buy them so this seemed the perfect time.

The liquid facial soap (left) in extra mild was £13, and a Huge 400ml clarifying lotion was £23, was quite shocked at the size really. so I spent £36 and got...

This pretty drawstring bag with testers of:

  • dramitically different moisturizing lotion (which I use all the time anyway and love!)
  • 7 day scrub cream
  • self sun body daily moisturizer in light /medium
  • tiny tube of lash power mascara in black onyx
  • mini long lasting glosswear spf 15 in 14 cabanna crush (really pretty pink)
  • and a small almost bronzer spf 15 in light medium (I like the look of this, looks like it might be just the right shade for me!)
  • and a mini clinique brush for the bronzer,

So got quite alot really, so if anyone else is looking at buying any more than 1 clinique product before the end of auugust get down to boots and get these freebies with them!

Outfit of the day

This is my first outfit of the day, sorry about the crappy photo quality, without the flash they didnt come out properly so now I have no face!

bad day!

I have had a rubbish day and just had to write about it as my boyfriend is being useless and watching football instead!

Firstly work was busy and drove me mad enough as I spent hours having to do jobs which arent mine just because one woman likes to feel like shes alot more important than she is!
Then came home and arranged to go the trafford centre with my older sister to cheer myself up by helping her buy things for her wedding at the end of the month, got up to her house for my niece to point out that my car had a scratch on it, got out and saw not just a scratch but the whole back corner of my car smashed in!!!!!!!! I hadnt noticed as I have hardly driven it since last week and got in my car in a rush to go out but its really bad, my sisters fiance is a mechanic and he reckons it will be hard to fix as its really caved in. Rang my insurance and was told that as I have no details about who did it to claim with and with me being under 21 it will cost me £400 in excess to get fixed! plus id lose my no claims, I think its so unfair that I would have to pay that when in no way was this my fault, it has only been parked outside my house! I already had to pay excess of £150 and lost 2 years no claims in march this year when it was broken into when I was at work so I cant believe its happening again!

Im going to get my brother in law to see what he can do or get some quotes from some garages and see if I can avoid using my insurance as then I know it will jump up loads when I renew it in september after making 2 claims so close together.

So yes a bad day :( never made it to the trafford centre either!

If anyone made it this far, sorry for moaning, just thinks its all really unfair :(

small haul and prize

Here is a quick post to show you a few things I have bought recently, since this I have cut up my credit cards cos I found I was buying things every time I went out which i really didnt need just because the cards were there so no more pointless buys now.

I got 2 face creams from wilkinsons which are the olay aqua physics night and garnier fresh essentials hydrating day care, love the day one, smells so fresh and fruity!
I got another collection 2000 hot looks nail polish in Hoola hoop which is a gorgeous creamy pink, cant wait to use this, this was £1.74 from wilkos and a new lip gloss from the love your lips range in 6 Adore which has SPF 20 and is just a levely natural pink when on, this was about £2.80 I think. Also from there I got some false eyelashes for 99p, they come with glue but I wont be using it as I imagine it wont be much good.

From primark I got a lip balm which is the little red one near the middle this was 50p and it seems to look and feel exactly like the vaseline rosy lips does. I also got a pack with 2 glitter dusts in, one is a lovely bronze and the other silver for 50p, used the silver today and its really nice on. From the newer beauty ranges there I got a mango lip balm which is very moisturising and smells lovely too! this was 99p.

From debenhams I got the clinique super city block in spf 40, this is described as an oil free daily face protector. Im not really sure why I got this, it was one of those duty free price offers at £11 something and the clinique woman started telling me about it and I find it very hard to say no once they get started and before I knew it Id bought it, It seems to make a good base for my make up though so hopefully I will get round to using it.

Finally is a mango and papaya body butter. I got this for £1.97 from superdrug and its gorgeous smelling and feels so nice on, love it!

I also recently got the nivea visage young tinted moisturiser but I forgot to put it in the photo, this was half price at superdrug and was about £2.50 and I have found it to be alot better than the normal nivea tinted moisturiser for me, Im not sure what the difference is but this doesnt seem to cling to my dry skin as much and I think the colour is abit more wearable, definatly be rebuying this!

Also just wanted to show you my prize which I recieved from Michelle at Lipstick rules, I won this in her giveaway a while ago, I recieved 3 lip products from a canadian brand called Annabelle, a red lipstick, a frosty pink gloss and a peachy gloss, they are all gorgeous so thank you so much for this :)
Im off to go swimming now as part of my quest to be healthy, but Im a pathetic swimmer so this should be interesting!
