New Nails

My nails have been bare for bout 3 months now, which is very unlike me!  I would normally have gel polish done every month, with Various colours & designs..

I’ve been meaning to paint them for the last 3 weeks but haven’t actually done it, but today was the day well evening where I painted them and made them look pretty again. I chose the colour ‘Sweet Rose’ Pure Colour by New Look, and put a longwear gel top coat over the colour to make it last a little longer… 

I will get my gel nails done again, I’m quite liking the Rose Gold metallic.

Hope you’ve all had a great Sunday ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜

Lots of Love

Beauty & Hair Care by New Look๏ปฟ

New Look Beauty has recently been re branded and have now added Bath, Hair and Body products too.

Hair Care

New Look’s Hair care products are suitable for all, whether you have long or short, curly or straight, coloured or natural.  The shampoos & conditioners are enriched with Vitamin B5 and also filled with natural ingredients which help scalp irritation, damage from heat and hair static.  I have recently brought Care & Rescue shampoo, Care & Repair conditioner and Root Rescue volumising dry shampoo.  As I work at New Look i get 50% staff discount so I thought I would give them a try, as I currently use L’Oreal Elvive for coloured hair and these cost between ยฃ2.50 to ยฃ4.00 each depending on what size I buy.  With dry shampoo i usually buy Batiste when ever it is on offer in Superdrug or Savers.  They currently have Batiste Rose Gold on offer at ยฃ1.25 and others at ยฃ1.48..

The only one I have used at the moment is the dry shampoo. It does what it says on the tin, and yes it made my look non greasy, I didn’t really notice the volumising as I have a lot of  hair and it is quite thick too, the only negative would be the smell, it wasn’t a pleasant smell but once its in your hair you can’t smell it.

Also available is a selection of hair brushes, well over 12 different types of brushes and combs to help style your hair.. So make dull, limp or lifeless hair a thing of the past!

Skin Care

I would like to try there skin care range also to see if it any good?  As I use Boots No7 range, which I’ll put my hands up I haven’t been religious in doing it daily, let alone weekly!  Which is bad as I have been getting a little dry skin on my forehead and cheeks so i need to start my daily routine again..  I’ll have to look into New Looks Skincare range and see which is best for my skin type and I’ll trial it for a month and see how my skin reacts to it, so keep your eyes peeled for a blog post coming soon..

Hope you all have enjoyed this post. Take care and have a great day..

Lots of Love

December Glossy Boxย ๏ปฟ

glossybox-december-2016-2(Please note the above pic has been taken from the internet)

I had my December Glossybox delivered a week or so ago, but only finding time to put my post up for it. Within December’s  Glossybox there is 5 full size beauty products!  I think that this is a good way to sample new brands and products if your not sure, I pay monthly for my Glossybox and if its a product I won’t use then I keep them and either pass them onto a friend or family member or I put together beauty bundles as presents so its a win win all round.

Here are the products in the December Box:

MDMflow Semi matte Lipstick in Vamp:  This isn’t a colour I would normally wear if I’m honest.  The RRP is ยฃ18, which I can say the only time I’ve spent over ยฃ5 on a lippy was when I was in New York in Dec 15 which was on a MAC and NARS lipstick. Florence Adepoju is behind this brand, with her cosmetic scientist and her love of music to create MDMflow, the range is inspired by hip hop.  Vamp is a rich plum shade which makes a serious statement and never fails to flatter.

Revlon Nail varnish in Valentine: RRP ยฃ6.49 and can be brought from Superdrug, Boots and other good beauty shops. This is a perfect colour for Christmas as well as the name of the varnish, Valentines. Revlon’s nail colours are iconic and deliver an ultra smooth and glossy finish, perfect for the party season.  And with its 10 chip resistant and chip defiant you can admire 10 days of lasting colour and shine.  I’ll be testing this out tonight, so keep a look out for a post coming soon.  I normally have Gel nails with a Christmas theme but I’m trying to cut back as saving for next years holiday..

Essence Light up your face Luminizer palette: RRP ยฃ3 and can be brought from essence.co.uk. This is another product that I wouldn’t usually use, I have contour palettes and i don’t use these let alone know how to do it??  I keep meaning to watch a YouTube video but still not got round to doing that either.  This trio palette can be applied individually or in combination of the 3 on various parts of the face.  You can go from day to night with this luminizer palette with different degrees of highlights from light pearl to  golden glow.

Collection Cosmetics Define & Perfect Eyebrow Powder: RRP ยฃ4.19 and is available to buy in Boots.com.  They say that Eyebrows frame your face, and when done right they can do.  I do like to have nice eyebrows but not one to spend loads of time on getting them just right. I get them waxed once a month and the pluck and strays out in between, I have been know to touch up my eyebrows up (Lily LoLo – Eyebrow Duo) if I’m going on a night out.  I have also recently brought another Eyebrow kit from when i went to the Clothes Show at the beginning of Dec (blog post to follow). The powder in this product contains tiny fibres to add instant volume to brows and the fine tipped nib allows you to create natural hair like strokes.

Lipcote: RRP ยฃ3.99 can be brought from Lipcote.com. This is a cult classic, 70 years old classic all natural lipstick sealer. It keeps lipstick fresh, apply to blotted lipstick to perfect the colour,  and its water and wine resistant   I’ve never ever used a lipstick sealer, so its ideal that this was in the box.  My ideal time to test it would of been on Sat just gone, 17th Dec as i was on my works do but completely forgot!  

Hope you have enjoyed this post, keep an eye out for my post on reviewing some of these items..  Happy Thursday..  Not long now only 3 more sleeps.

Lots of Love

GlossyBox Reviews

I’m on a mini break in Italy at the minute and only taking hand luggage to keep costs down, the body items in the glossy boxes I’ve had so far are perfect as only small sizes suitable as all under 100ml.

So I’ve wrote a little review on two items, one recent and one a few months ago…

De Bruyรจre – After Sun Lotion Monoรฏ. RRP ยฃ9.48
The after sun lotion has a strong scent, it does smell nice but for me the smell is a bit too much. It goes on the skin lovely, not too thick or too greasy and it covers well also.

It is enriched with Monoรฏ (gardenia petals soaked in coconut oil) alongside Vitamin E, it will hydrate, nourish and calm your skin. What’s more, it’s totally peraben & silicone-free


Cowshed ~ Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion RRP ยฃ20

This will give you an energy buzz with its boosting blend of Lemongrass, Ginger and Rosemary. This luxe body lotion deeply moisturises skin with She’s and Cocoa Butters. It’s made in England and they use natural ingredients, which are packed full of skin-loving essential oils.

I applied this to my legs as they were feeling a bit dry. After opening the lid the scent was strong. You could smell the Lemongrass & Ginger straightaway. The cream is easy to apply and my legs have left feeling smooth. When applying apply the body lotion in a circular motions will increase circulation.

MUA ~ Heaven & Earth Eyeshadow Palette RRP ยฃ4

This palette you have 12 on trend eye colours that you can mix, match and blend in a number of different ways to create the look you want! Each colour is highly pigmented.

I now actually have two of these as I brought one a week earlier while I was in town. I’m not sure why I brought it as all the eyeshadow palettes I have are all similar in colour. So I didn’t actually need it!Swatches of eyeshadows: L to 

Rift / Amber Dune / Catacomb / Tectonite / Canyon / Bedrock

I hope you have enjoyed reading this post & look forward to more GlossyBox reviews soon!

Lots of Love

Juice Plus

So I’ve been doing Juice Plus since May 11th, and I’ve lost 21.8lbs up to the 31st August but since Jan 4th I have lost a total of 31.4lbs, I still have a few more pounds to lose but I’m losing it slow and steady which I’m happy with. ย I take the Berry/Vineyard Blend capsules, which I take 2 ย a day and then I eat clean alongside the plan, drink at least 3 litres of water andย  exercise 3/4 times a week.

Image result for juice plus

What is Juice plus, I hear you say? Well if you want to feel really well, your body needs a range of valuable nutrients. So you need to eat a balanced diet to feel empowered, and that includes a varied selection of fresh fruits and vegetables.ย Because that is not so easy to do on an everyday basis, Juice PLUS+ have concentrated the best parts of 30 types of fruits, vegetables and berries in capsule form. You can now get the benefit of valuable phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. You will also be optimally supplied with powerful antioxidants that are important for your well-being. Why is Juice Plus important? If you want to eat more healthily but often do not have enough time to plan every meal perfectly. Juice PLUS+ can help: the products bridge the gap between what we eat every day and what we should eat every day. ย ย Juice PLUS+ allows you to enjoy the benefits of fruits and vegetables in a very simple way. Of course you should still eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day. That way you will have a balanced diet and remain fit and strong. There is no better opportunity to enjoy a long and healthy life!

GlossyBox Reviews: July 2016

The items below are what was in the July boxes, they had a 241 offer on for July which is always a bonus… 4 of the items so far have been tried & tested, so here are my reviews… ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ–‹

Goodie 1: Wilkinson Sword ~ Intuition Ultra Moisture with Shea Butter.

(RRP 6.99 ~ Supermarkets)

With gentle, creamy soap that lathers and moisturises, this razor will hydrate the skin while the four blades leave your legs feeling super soft. 

If I’m honest I’ve never used Wilkinson Sword for ladies before I’ve always used Gilette, not sure why just have. So this is my 1st time using a Wilkinson Sword product and I can say my legs a silky smooth, I think the Shea Butter Creamy soap around the 4 blades which has made my legs smooth. I will be using it again, I’m not sure if I would buy it again when shopping unless maybe it was on offer..

Goodie 2: The Vintage Cosmetic Company ~ Tweezers.

(RRP ยฃ8)Tweezers are a make up bag essential. The slanted edge makes them perfect for brow shaping or if you need to tame a few unruly hairs. These tweezers are pretty aswell, very Cath Kidson like. To me tweezers are tweezers, you pluck unruly hairs out with them, only up till 3 years ago I never had a pair of tweezers but now I have 3 pairs this being my 3rd pair! 

Goodie 3: Hairon ~ Detangle brush

(RRP ยฃ6.99 Hairon.co.uk)Hair is at its most vulnerable  to breakage when it’s wet. It’s the perfect size as it fits in the palm perfectly to carefully Detangle wet hair without snagging and tugging. It’s also a perfect size to fit in your handbag ๐Ÿ‘œ๐Ÿ˜Š.

I’ve used this product twice now and I can say it has detangled my hair and is now easier to brush and feels smoother and I can run my fingers through my hair easier.. ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผ

Goodie 4: Tinties Lip Butter ~ In Pink ~ Royal Apothic

(RRP ยฃ14 royalapothic.com)

I’ve never heard of this company before, but after looking at it when I opened the box I thought it looked quite cute, and the box it comes in is quite nice too. These adorable little pots contain the finest formulation to nourish and condition your lips with the perfect hint of colour. I have the lip butter in a shade of pink, it has argan oil and grape seed oil to deeply hydrate & sweet almond oil and she’s butter to soothe. I think it’s a little too pink for me but its packaging is cute.. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hope your all having a great Friday

Lots of Love

GlossyBox Reviews: June 16

The items below are what was in the June box, and I’ve tried 3 of the items so far so here are my reviews…

Goodie 1: Spa to You ~ Natural Konjac Sponge. 

(RRP 7.99 ~ spatoyou.com)This is the latest cleansing trend from Japan ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต.  Konjac sponges are made from the natural fibres of the Konjac, a porous root vegetable native to Asia and known for its ability to hold water. More gentle than a scrub but with skin-buffing capabilities, leaves your skin feeling clean and unbelievably soft. The key features of this sponge are: Gentky exfoliates the skin, deeply cleanses, refines pores, effectively balances the pH of the skin, naturally hydrates & moisturises the skin & ideal for delicate & sensitive skin.

I soak the sponge in warm water and then rinse off the excess water as stated. I then put some of my No7 cleansing foam on the sponge and gentle massaged in circular motions on my face and neck. I did this for about 3/4 mins to cover all my face, once I’d finished I splashed my face with cold water to rinse of the cleansing foam. Then I rinsed the sponge and squeezed the water out of it, and then hung it in a well ventilated are where it can dry by the string to keep it fresh and free from bacteria..

I will have to say that my skin is feeling smooth and fresh ๐Ÿ˜Š. So I will be using this product again. 

Goodie 2: Starskin ~ Eye catcher, smoothing bio-cellulose Eye Mask 

(RRP ยฃ8.50 starskinbeauty.com)These eye masks are soaked in vitamin-rich serum, these super hydrating eye masks make quick work to be reducing puffiness and dark circles, leaving you looking bright-eyed and more rejuvenated.  You place these directly under the eyes, the thinner end on the nose (to target the ‘bunny lines’) and the wider end to the outer corner of the eye. 

Looking at the target area the next morning, the area where I had a small area of dark circles does seem less darker and the eye area does look brighter, I will be buying these again and try them over a week to see the full benefit.. 

Bonus Goodie 3: Aussie Hair Care ~ 3 min miracle reconstructor deep conditioner.

This Australian Balm Mint extract, smoothed split ends & roughened cuticles.. It helps dry damaged hair into manageable and shiny locks in 3 mins!! 

When I opened it, it smelt sweet & fresh, a little hint of a marzipan smell and I ๐Ÿ’ marzipan!! I left it on my hair a little longer than the 3 mins and then washed it off.  I let my hair dry naturally, but after it had dried a little it feels softer and smells good too.. I’ll have to wait to see if I’ve got the shine!!

Happy Tuesday ๐Ÿ˜Š

Lots of Love
