NOTD and update + 50 followers!

Just a quick NOTD, last night I used the Collection 2000 hot looks in BMX bandit which is a gorgeous creamy blue/purple, I love this colour so much and it went on so smoothly as this polish has a great brush which makes application really easy! In 2 different shops today I was asked by the women serving me what nail polish it was as they liked it so much and neither could believe it would only cost them about £1.50! cant wait to test the other ones I have from this range now!

Heres just a bit of an update:

I have a few posts to do tomorrow, a review on some products from the garnier pure active range which I was sent to try out and a post on my huge order from e.l.f which consists of both the studio range and some stuff from the regular range.

I am also planning on a bit of a diet, well not so much a diet but just making an effort to not eat as much crap as I do, like for example this week I have had a curry, chippy, dominos, and not only is that making me bloated and feel crap but its bloody expensive! I have a treadmill and the wii fit so going to make more of an effort to use them both and drink more water from tomorrow.
I also want to say sorry for the lack of posts but I am back at work now and last week I found out that my mum is ill, not quite sure how serious yet but will be finding out next week after another scan so I have been feeling really down and upset and not up to posting but I am feeling abit more calm now so hopefully things will be ok :(

Also I now have 50 followers!!! Thank you so much, I love reading blogs so much and am so glad people think mine is worth reading, I will have to do a contest soon, I will plan one as soon as I have some money to spare!

Tag - Becky wants..

I just saw this tag on kelanjo19's blog and just had to do it!

So go to Google and type in "Your First Name" and "Wants" So I would type "Becky wants"
You then read off the top 5 results on google. Obviously as long as they make sense, if not move on to the next search result.

So I did "Becky wants..
1. To destroy her school
2. me horny
3. to organise a picnic
4. wants her little brother back
5. to be a footballers wife!

And just so I could get more results I also did "Rebecca wants..
1. to smother Luke with her boobs
2. her bike back
3. to be miss sunderland
4. to give shared guitar lessons to Vincent and Alex
5. to sing at the school assembly

Lol, I want to smother Luke with my boobs, that one was actually about those 2 from big brother last year.
I tag anyone who wants to do this as I look forward to reading what crap google comes up with for other peoples names x

NOTD and nail polish storage

Today I used the Barry M flamingo pink nail paint for the first time after ordering it off their website, I love the colour, its a corally pink and is so pretty but Im not too sure on the polish on a whole as it took a few coats to get full coverage and then it took forever to dry, definatly going to use it again though as I love the colour so much!!
I also got this little set of drawers from wilkinsons for £2 recently, I was going to put my earrings and things in them but tonight I decided to use it for some of my nail varnishs. It wasnt big enough for all of my bottles but I had fun organising the ones I wanted in it :)

This is the drawers closed! bargain for £2 and there were a few other patterns too.

Also from wilkinsons I got these collection 2000 nail varnishs, which are (l-r) BMX bandit (blue), Wham (grey) and Button moon (light creamy green). I think they are all such nice colours and with my discount only cost me about £1.20 each!! The button moon is more or less exactly the same as the Barry M mint green aswell!

Small Barry M haul

After reading on Hele says blog about the new Barry M nail paint in pink flamingo I just had to order it as its the nicest colour and I got a few more bits too.

Below are: (l-r: 305 pink flamingo £2.95, 180 marine blue £1.50, NPP1 limited edition free with code Lollipop26)

I LOVE the pink flamingo one its gorgeous and cant wait to get it on, its almost like a corally shade and its so pretty, the blue was in the clearance section and is very shimmery and almost metallic, and tht other pink was free with the code lollipop26 at the checkout, I already got this with the barry m things I got for subscribing to More magazine but I thought if its free I might as well gte another :) Its similar to the bright pink one but more wearable I think.

I also got the lip paint in 147 peachy pink as have seen this on alot of blogs and thought it looked such a pretty colour, I think this was around £4.
I saw this natural collection lipgloss in fondant on and had to have it, I got it with some of my boots points and Im not sure how much it cost but only about £2, its such a pretty orangey pink and it smells quite sweet. Im going to try this over the top of the 147 and see how that looks too as the lip gloss doesnt have that much colour on its own.

Here is a swatch of the 147 lip paint on the left and the fondant lip gloss on the right.

And also a photo of the lip paint with the flash. so pretty :)

kiss french manicure pen

I mentioned that I had used this pen in another post but without a top coat so I tried it again and used the Sally Hansen hard as nails clear polish on top and this has lasted really well except from on my thumb where a bit chipped and I ended up peeling it off :/. I found it really hard to get the pen to give me a tidy line though, the first time I used some french manincure stickers but this time I hadnt any left and I struggled to keep them neat, has anyone got any tips for getting a tidy french manicure look?
I think this pen is good as long as you use it properly and it has lasted the past 4 days really well with just one top coat on!

This photo is of my finished nails and the kiss pen and the hard as nails which I used.

Just a quick mention of another nail polish I finally got round to using. It is a rimmel one in goldspun coral. I bought this to use on my holiday but never used it untill last week and I really didnt like it, the colour wasnt as nice as I was expecting and it didnt really have a good consistency. It didnt cost much, only about £2.50 from wilkinsons but I doubt I will be using it again.

Favourite reads

I saw this post on victorias blog: and thought it was a great idea! so I have been through the books I have in my room at the moment and picked out the best, I have 6 instead of 5 as I couldnt choose between them.

1. Where rainbows end by Cecelia Ahern - I loved this book so much, It is set over years and years right from the 2 mains characters childhoods right through to old age and it is such a lovely story, I wont give the story away but I would definatly recommend this book, its one of my faves!

2. Lucky by Jackie Collins - This book follows a character called Lucky Santangelo and is part of a large series I think, Its full of money and sex and crime and mystery and it really drew me in!

3. The virgins lover by Philippa Gregory - This is again part of a series which the film the other Boleyn girl came from. I have read them all now and they are all really good, I would say that the best is actually one called The Queens fool but I couldnt find my copy anywhere. They are all full of scandal and are amazingly well writen!

4. The Secret of Crickley Hall by James Herbert - I got this book from a £2 bookshop in Huddersfield as I fancied something new and hadnt ever read many horrors and Im so glad I did. I scare easily when it comes to ghosts and things that make noises in the night so this book had me scared to the point where I couldnt even go to the toilet in the dark lol! Its a really goodstory and really is soo scary and I even found it quite upsetting at points as there is a sad issue within the family. I have since read alot of James Herbert books and some of them are quite confusing but others I would recommend are the magic cottage, and the Fog which I enjoyed alot too.

5. Daddys girls by Tasmina Perry - Full of sex, scandals and celebrities! I found it so hard to put this book down and I was quite upset when I finished it. It is about 4 sisters who are all suspected of killing their wealthy father and I really didnt want to put it down!

6. Angel by Katie Price - I know she probably didnt actually write her books but I got this when it first came out quite a few years ago and I loved it straight away. Its about a young girl becoming a model and getting caught up in the celebrity world and I have read this many times since and I still enjoy it as much. I have also really enjoyed all of the other books she has written such as Angel uncovered and Crystal and there is one out the end of this month which I am going to buy too!

I bought a few new books from Sainsburys at the weekend which were Sins by Penny Jordan and The host by Stephanie Meyer so Im going to be reading these next as I just finished my last book (The last to know by Melissa Hill - good but abit complicated)



This is a nail polish by 17 in Lilac storm. I applied this last night and I love the colour and a few people have commented on how nice it is today but I have to say Im not that keen on the actual product. It seemed different in consistency from the other 17 polishes I have used and didnt spread very well and it took ages to dry, after about 15mins part were still wet and lumpy which I was unimpressed with to say this is one of their 'fast finish' polishes.

I do love the colour though, has any one got any suggestions on a similar colour by a different make which is a better quality?

St Moriz & few other bits

Today I finally bought some of the St. Moriz fake tan, It has been in the local T J hughes for ages but I kept stopping myself as I have so much fake tan, but I have read so much good reviews about this product that I couldnt put it off any longer :) so I got it for £2.99 today, Im quite tanned from my hols so Im not planning to use it at the moment but Ill do a review when I do use it in the next few weeks.

I also picked up a 2 in 1 cleaner from the new boots vitamin e range I mentioned in another post, this was £2.99 and my fave simple cream was reduced to £3 for the big bottle at superdrug.

I also picked up this sally hansen no more mistakes corrector pen as I am quite bad at putting nail varnish on and I get a bit messy so this is a good idea for me. This was £1.99 from T J Hughes. I also got another 17 nail polish. Its a gorgeous purple called Lilac storm and I cant wait to try it out later.

Next up is the Prestige skin loving minerals bronzer in Glam Tan. I have been looking at these for so long but I could never decide which I wanted but today I finally decided on this one. Its really shimmery but when I tried it before it seemed nice on but that was on top of my normal bronzer so Im hoping this looks ok when I try it tomorrow on its own.

This is a swatch of the glam tan, pics crap cos with the flash it didnt show up at all for some reason yet without it looks really dark and dull.

Wish list

This is just a bit of a list of things I want at the moment, theres not too much but maybe if do a post it will remind me that I want them :D

1. Barry M Touch of Magic lip paint : This is on the barry m website and looks interesting, it says on there : "A waterproof formula with added Aloe Vera stays on for up to 8 hours. Depending on the alkali level of your lips, determines just how pale or rich the colour will go." - I havent seen this in any shop yet, has anyone else seen it?

2. Barry M nail paint in Cyan Blue: I am planning on getting a blue dress for my sisters wedding in about 5 weeks and I really want this nail paint to go with it.

3. Barry M lip paint in Peachy Pink: I keep reading about how nice this is and I really want to buy it.

4. Estee Lauder gilded rose shimmer powder : I saw this on a blog and Im not even sure its avaliable in the UK but I think its gorgeous and I want it so much.

I will add to this when I see more that I want

Mini boots haul

Just a small boots haul. I got the No 7 protect and perfect body serum as it was half price, There was an offer on if you spent over £20 you got a free gift (watch) so I got a skin illuminator in peach. I didnt realise untill I got it home though that its in a stupid bottle with a brush built in which I always find hard to use. This was £10.25 I think.

I also got a blush contour brush from Prestige, this was around £6, I was considering getting some of the sun baked bronzers but I couldnt decide which one to get so I left it, I really want one though so I will be going back.

I picked up the Kiss draw on french tip pen after seein it on Hele's blog, this was about £5 and I put it on a few nights ago but after a few hours It had all pretty much come off, I didnt put any thing on over the top of it as I had been in a rush so Im going to give this another go when I get some time to do it properly.

Boots also had a new vitamin e skin care range, I picked up the moisture day cream and the gentle eye cream with spf 15. I have been using these the last few days and I already love them, the cream feels gorgeous and the eye cream already seems to have lightened up my eye bags! these were £2.50 each and there was also a night cream and face wipes and a few other things all around this price so definatly worth checking out!

I also got the Dolce and Gabbana light blue perfume from Body care for £38.99, I meant to pick this up in the airport duty free but I forgot so I just got it there, I so love the smell of this, really fruity and fresh. This is a 100ml bottle so quite good price really! (sorry its sideways, forgot to turn it before I uploaded it)

No 7 prize

The other day I went into Boots to No 7 as I had read that the protect and perfect body serum was half price down to £12.50 so I got that and the sales woman asked if I wanted to enter a mini comp to find the best pout in the town so I agreed, she applied some no 7 lipstick and I kissed a piece of paper and gave her my details and then forgot about it as my print didnt even resemble a mouth really.
But yesterday they rang and said Id won and to collect my prize so here it is:

There are a few samples of the protect and perfect day and night creams and the intense beauty serum, 3 perfume samples, mini bottles of the soft and soothed gentle cleanser and the cleanse and care eye make up remover, and finally a limited edition rainbow eye palette.

This is the palette with the flash:

And without:

Its got some nice colours in, I love the blues, Im looking forward to playing around with this.
I also went to sainburys yesterday, there isnt one near where I live so I was quite excited which sounds sad lol. I picked up 2 hair products by phil smith, one was the big it up shampoo and the other an xpanding thickening cream, this only cost me £2.99 as it was buy one get one free on the whole range. I havent used these yet but I plan to later.

I also got 2 pairs of earrings from the TU range which I thought were cute and only £2 each,

They also had a cargo stand and I was debating buying a blusher/bronzer but at £15 each I made myself walk away as I cant stop spending at the moment, but they looked good and I think Ill go back when I get some money.

Holiday pics

Hey, thought Id do a post with a few photos from my holiday! As i have mentioned in some old posts I went to a town in Rhodes, Greece called Lindos, this was my 3rd time with my boyfriend Nick and this time we took my younger sister aswell. It s a gorgeous little town with no roads as its all preserved as it used to be with little white wash houses, so the main way of getting up the steep hilly paths is by donkey which I never did as I felt sorry for them in that heat especially with huge people on them :/
This first photo is me and nick on our first night going out for a meal,This was the beach that was right outside our apartment, such a nice view in the morning :)

This photo was just taken out for a meal one evening,
This is me on the left anf my younger sister one night posing on the terrace,

This is me and Nick posing too lol

This is me and Nick whilst out for pizza on our last night, I had a burnt painful chest at this point :(

Lindos has 3 beaches, a main one, a smaller one and this one which is called st pauls bay, its proper picturesque when you see it, we never went on the beach or in the water here as the main beach was closest to where we were staying but I wish we had now.

I had a great time and I bet this is where I will end up booking for next year again!

Has anyone else ever been to Lindos?

Holiday buys and waterproof mascara

As I said in my last post I only got a few bits at the airport, I could of stayed forever but we got there later than planned so I didnt have much time for shopping :( I did get 2 things from Givenchy though. On the left is Prismissime mat and glow, It can be used as either eye shadows or a bronzer, Im using it as a bronzer just swirling my brush over all the shades and it works really well, This was about £26. On the right is Prisme again which is a blush/highlight. It has 4 different colours and they all blend well. This was about £16.

This is the packaging, I think it is limited edition: I love the smaller one.

On the left is the bronzer, there are shimmery blocks and matte blocks but they arent too dark for my skin tone. The blush has a darkish pink, a light browny shade, a peachy shade and a really light pinky white, the 3 lighter shade are what I have been using as a highlighter, and using the darker as a blush, I really love this so far.

Also, I bought the Max factor false lash effect in waterproof for my holiday which cost me about £11, then last week I got the wilkinsons Image waterproof mascara, which is 99p, as its 3 items for £2 and I needed an extra item and I have to say I am amazed by how good it was, the brush was great and it gave me really good volume and really did stay put! I didnt even touch the max factor mascara all week!! The photo below was with only one coat, It really gave me long curled lashes!

I will do a post later with a few holiday photos, Im just sorting through them now and theres alot to do

  • Glitter liquid eyeliner in 02 (silver)
  • Glossy tube in 10 (pink)
  • Dazzle dusts in 23 and 95 (green and purple)
  • Nail paints in 296 (coral0 and NPP1 (says limited edition but its pink, think this may be the one lollipop26 has been speaking about in her blog!)
  • Kohl pencil in 6 (blue)
  • Natural dazzle compact

So far I have used the natural dazzle today for contouring, the mascara which I love already! and the coral nail paint which is pictured below, although I only put it on last night and Its already chipped quite abit but I have been doing alot at work which could explain this.

I also just wanted to show you these cute earrings I got from Asda, they were only £2.50 and they are dangly hearts made from little pearl like stones, so sweet. Sorry again that the photo is rubbish!!

Can anybody please recommend a good contouring brush thats affordable?

NOTD and Avon

Hiya, sorry for the lack of posts, Im still without my laptop and working all hours before my holiday on wednesday!

So first up is my nail of the day, this is the 17 limited edition coral reef nail polish, this lasted 4 days with only one chip I got at work before I took it off, Im very impressed with the 17 polishes, have tried a few now and they last really well and the consitencys really good, I used the Sally Hansen nail treatment as a base and then 2 coats of this. Its quite similar to the tropical island shade I did a previous NOTD post on but this is more red where as the tropical island has more of an orange tone which I do prefer. Ill definatly be buying more 17 polishes especially when they are only a few quid! I also got a delivery from Avon the other day. I ordered no make up, just body and hair products.

On the far left is a moisturisor for dry skin, its a huge bottle and was reduced to £2.50, this is quite good, but I still prefer the simple derma one as its thicker, this one was abit more watery but still good value!
Next to that is a root boosting spray. Again was about £2.50 i think, I used this after a shower yesterday with the sunsilk volume shampoo and my hair does seem bigger and better!
Ian the middle is this strawberry yogurt face mask, I used this a few nights ago for 10 mins and its lovely, smells gorgeous, and was very mositurising. I think this was only 99p.

Second to the right is a body illuminating cream, I used abit of this on my arm when I forst got it and it made me itchy so looks like I wont be using this again :(
Lastly is the am/pm cleansers, this is great, ones a refreshing wash for the morning and the others for taking your make up off at night. Its moisturising and I liked the smell of the am one!
I plan on ordering some make up from the latest avon book so watch out for more on that :)
