My Makeup Revolution Palettes

makeup-revolutionI decided to do this post on a damp Tuesday evening, earlier on in the day I’d commented on a fellow followers blog. She has done a post on Maybelline’s Burgundy Eyeshadow Palette and I had commented that I do like the look of this palette but with being on a budget it’s not something I can go out and buy. Not when Makeup Revolution do some good palettes for a lower price!!

Anyway here is my personal collection of Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Palettes.


Left: Matte Forecast Edit 2017 ~~ Top: Matte 18 Edit

I got these two palettes as a Secret Santa last year, they are colours that I use a lot but haven’t actually used this as yet, but I’m sure within the next few months they will get used.

These are my two favorite palettes to use when I am going  out, as they don’t just have the colours that are my go to but they also have some other lovely deep, bright and shimmery tones.  I am loving the Flawless 4 palette which is the last photo, it has some beautiful red and gold tones.  I’ve wanted this palette ever since it came out, its priced at £8 in Superdrug but I got mine when it was on offer earlier in the year at £5 which was a right bargain!!!  I absolutly love the red and gold tones in this palette.

Affirmation Palette – 32 Eyeshadows

Flawless 4 Palette – 32 Eyeshadows

You can see which ones I use, I need to start using some of the other colours, may have to have a little make up play session on a Saturday or Sunday.  I need to go and have a look at what other palettes they have, and maybe go for colours which are out of my comfort zone!?

Hope to you have all enjoyed this post.  Are any of my followers Makeup Revolution lovers? If so let me know your verdicts and thoughts on there products?  Or are you more a MUA fan?

Lots of Love




Chapter 8

People seriously where is this year going?  How is it August already?

8 months gone, 4 remaining!  What stunning weather we have been having the last month and half we are actually having a British Summer..

So what are my plans this month I hear you ask? Well I haven’t got massive amounts on but a few fun things happening.

4th Aug Girlies & Kids day, hoping the weather stays good, so it will be chilling, drinks and nibbles in the garden.

5th Aug My friends Baby Shower – eeeekkkk which I’m excited for 🙂

8th Aug The boy coming down..  Fingers Crossed 🙂

17th Aug a whole weekend with the boy @ his Niece’s wedding 🙂

That’s all my plans at the min, nothing too exciting. But I’m hoping I can arrange some more stuff or meet up with some lovelies for drinks and catch ups.

What have you lot got planned for Aug?  Anything interesting or exciting..


The Body Shop Body Yogurt

Meet our new Body Yogurts. Cruelty-free and 100% vegan, these fast-absorbing moisturisers have a lightweight, gel-cream texture that’s suitable for all skin types, including dry skin. Apply straight onto damp skin for 48hr moisture and you’re just #15SecondsTo glowing, healthy-looking skin. Made with Community Trade almond milk from Spain, pick from six nature-inspired flavours including MangoStrawberry and Coconut.

When I was younger I use to love The Body Shop and when I could afford to buy anything I always did.  I got these 3 Body Yogurts as a freebie thru  I signed up to there newsletter, so you can get different freebies to try like perfume, drinks, body creams and other bits.

These came in handy when I went away to Liverpool for a few days, instead of taking my big bottle of coco butter I took the Almond Milk and Strawberry Body Yogurts which I used on my legs.  When I collected these from my local Body Shop the assistant gave me her verdict on them which was good to hear first hand if they are any good.  And I have to say that she was right, she said they they absorb really well, not greasy or have to wait for it to soak into the skin, also made my legs nice and smooth.  I have to agree with what the shop assistant said about the product and they also smelt lovely.

I think I would buy the Almond Milk Body Yogurt in full size £8.50 for 100ml , I think that is a lot of money but it would last a while as you don’y need much.  I think I would also like to try the Mango & Coconut scented one as well, so once I’ve earnt some extra pennies on doing surveys I will treat myself..

Have you tried The Body Shop Body Yogurts?  If so what are your thoughts and which is your favorite scent?

Hope you are all had a great weekend?  The weather hasn’t been great in Peterborough over the weekend, windy and rain!!  Bring back the ☀️… Please

Lots of Love



Poundland Dress!!!

I brought this dress in June, I’d popped to my local Poundland one Saturday to pick up some bits, and came across this cute little floral summer dress as I walked into the store. I mean it was a bargain price of £4, I mean a £1 would of been better but still not a bad price.

I tried the dress on and if I’m honest I wasn’t sure how it would look on or what the fit would be like, but I was surprised.  Once it was on I didn’t feel uncomfortable in the dress, and it fitted good no tight and hung well in all the right places.  Was a nice length came just above the knee on me, I felt comfortable, summery and girlie.  Its a cute little dress it has a cute frill over the bust area, its a light weight material which is nice with the weather we have been having.  I have a baby shower a week tomorrow and I’m think that I will wear it again then if the weather is nice and sunny.

img_0341.jpgI think that I will have to go back to the store I got the dress from as they have a top floor which is all clothes so will have to see what other finds I can find..  Keep your eyes peeled for another post coming soon..

Hope you all have a great weekend and have some exciting plans

New Hair

I hadn’t had my hair cut for a good few months, and I was desperate to have it cut as I go away on Sat 7th and it needed doing badly, I also wanted something different style wise and colour.  I’d seen a post on Facebook of a rose brown colour which I liked, as I usually just have highlights or low-lights.

I have to say that am chuffed with the outcome, and I love the colour.  All I need to do now is master the curling technique with my straighteners. I am gutted that i never got a before picture!!

Excuse the above face on the picture!

Hope you have enjoyed this post & like the hair!

Love for Kate Spade ❤️💛🧡

Can’t believe it’s coming up to a month since Kate Spade took her own life. Such sad news to read when it was published over the internet.

55 years is no age, and a well established women within the Fashion Industry and she will carry on being. I have heard of Kate Spade previously but didn’t really properly fall in love with her designs until NYE, 31st December 2015 when I had made my long awaited holiday to NYC!!!  We made our way to the Top end of 5th Ave after a little stroll round Central Park, the first shop we spotted and went into was Kate Spade and it had a Sale on so that was even better.  We were mooching around looking and one of the shop assistants said did you know we have another 2 floors? I was like oh no, so off I went up to the first floor and my eyes lit up – Bags and Shoes Galore! I was like a kid in a sweet shop.

My first Kate Spade Bag & matching Purse

I travel backed to New York in Dec 2017 with 3 friends, I know what I wanted to get I wanted a new bag and matching purse but I wasn’t sure whether it would of been Michael Kors or Kate Spade.  I looked at Michael Kors in Macy’s and didn’t see any handbags I liked but I did spot a cute Red Jet Set across the body bag and a small coin purse to match which I brought.  I visited the Kate Spade store which is at the Rockafella Centre and nothing really jumped out at me, the other Kate Spade store I visited was at the Westfield shopping mall at Ground Zero, where I purchased my second Kate Spade bag and matching purse in Navy.

I will be adding to my Kate Spade collection, as well as adding to my Michael Kors Collection too..  That will be on hold for a few months as currently in the process of moving and also a few other things which are going on, but they do have a sale on at the min which is very tempting!!!  Why not pop over and have a look?

Hope you have all enjoyed this post, do you have any Kate Spade goods?  Why not drop a comment or picture?

OOTD Thursday 28th June 18

I was up in Liverpool from 27th to 29th June visiting the boy, and the weather has been beautiful, it was glorious sunshine the whole time I was there.  I must admit that when it is glorious weather like it has been I love wandering down The Albert Dock and to the Pierhead & Waterfront area as there is some nice areas to sit, its great for people watching and  was also looking at getting some vitamin D and get a bit of a tan.

All of my outfit is from New Look, but is all old season.  I love the black culottes, as they are lightweight and also comfortable to wear. The multi coloured striped cami I love as its a summery top and perks me up when I’m wearing it.

Well I hope you all had a great weekend, and have been enjoying the sunshine, and its here for the rest of the week at least, but I’m off to Benidorm on Saturday at 1am for a few days, so i’m looking forward to the break away from home, relax, sun, cocktails and laughs.

Lots of Love

Chapter 7



Seriously thou where is this year going.. I mean it’s now July 📆 it’s crazy!!

Arranging a birthday gathering for my mum as she has recently moved into a nursing home as she hasn’t been well.

Me & five others are off to Benidorm on 7th for a few days for a 40th Birthday Bash 🎉🎈.

Also I move into my new place this month.. As I’m trying to save some pennies and should save roughly £150ish a month. So with this I can pay off my debt a little quicker and also save some.

Its one of my best friends Little Girl’s first birthday on 11th July!  It’s crazy how quick that year has gone…

Hoping The Boy is finally going to come down and spend sometime with me at my place ❤️.

I’m hoping to get a few more things slotted in for this month but will have to see what comes up and how the pennies stretch.

Hope you have enjoyed this post.

☀️☀️Sunny Sunday☀️☀️

What a beautiful day it was yesterday, 24th June! The Sun and Blue Skies were a gorgeous sight to see all day..

I was planning on having a productive house work kinda morning, but I got a text from an old work mate who I’ve note seen in about 7 months we arranged she’d pick me up then head into town for a coffee and a catch up. We ended up going to Patisserie Valerie, as I had brought a Brunch for two Groupon Voucher.

With it being such a lovely morning we sat outside in the sun..

I went for a Latte and Eggs Benedict and I paid extra for a sausage 🙈. It was a lovely brunch and a right little bargain for two people.

Groupon is great for deals local and for some of the bigger cities like London, Manchester etc, I’m always looking but not very often that I buy, but I will have to start looking more. They also do hotel stays and city breaks which I have never booked think I will have to try as some can be great little finds. There was a voucher for Afternoon Tea at Patisserie Valerie, so why not get yourself on Groupon to see what deals they have in your local area

Then I headed to the pub about 12:30 to meet another friend & her boys to watch England vs Panama, so a few Pink Gin’s were in order as it had been a long week! 😬🙄

Lots of Love
