Pandora & My New Addition

Afternoon lovelies!


   A slightly different post today! As you may already be aware from my Vivienne Westwood Jewellery Collection blog post i am a lover of jewellery, usually of the more expensive kind! I have owned a silver Pandora bracelet for quite a while now and have acquired a few charms for it so far.

My lovely mum (who has asked if i was going to post about my new bead so of course i couldn't say no! :) Hi mum!) was recently holidaying in Venice (jealous much?) and had the opportunity to visit the island of Murano that is famous for its glass making and picked me up a gorgeous glass bead for my bracelet. 
As you can see my bracelet is pretty much heart themed! (with bows & splashes of pink thrown in for good measure!) Pandora themselves sell the huge Murano glass beads so even though the bead i have isn't Pandora itself, it is from the island of Murano (where the Pandora ones are made) so it makes it that much more special & i love it muchly! 

Its quite large, much larger than my other silver beads and is pink, white & swirly! I honestly love it and think it works well on the bracelet with the other beads as the heart in the middle has a a pink crystal in it! 

Thank you again Mummy - I love my bracelets new addition very much!

What are your thoughts on Pandora bracelets? Love them or loathe them?

Eyeko Fat Balm & Liptastiks

Hello cupcakes!

Hope you are all well! 

I was recently sent a couple of the new Eyeko Liptasticks and one of their fat balms, which i thought i would show you along with some swatches!
Eyeko Liptasticks in 'Lip lover' and 'Loud Mouth'
The Eyeko Liptastiks are one of the new products to the Eyeko range. They are basically a glossy lipstick in a pen. The two that i have 'Loud Mouth' and 'Lip Lover' are the two permanent Liptastiks and there is also another in the range called 'Hot Lips' which is Limited Edition. They retail for £6.50 and are available to buy from here. They are extremely moisturising, glide onto the lips and leave a gorgeous opaque colour. Loud mouth is my ultimate favourite, a gorgeous bright pink for summer!
Eyeko Fat Balm in Toffee
The Eyeko Fat Balms are available in a number of different shades and can be used on both the cheeks and lips. The 'toffee' one that i received is a gorgeous, glossy nude. It is non sticky on the lips and leaves a glossy sheen as a lip balm would. The Fat Balms are available to buy from here and retail for £6.50. 

I am also a Eyeko Ambassador so you can use my code E6920 and you will receive a free gift when you spend £15 and they also offer free UK delivery!

Have you tried Eyeko products?

Sleek MakeUP Oh So Special Palette

Afternoon honeys!

The newest addition to the Sleek MakeUP Line is the 'Oh so special' iDivine Eyeshadow Palette. To me personally this is the best eyeshadow palette from Sleek MakeUP and one that i would recommend everyone to go out and buy! The colours are all neutrals, with a mixture of both matte and shimmer with a lot of different looks that can be made from the 12 eyeshadows. 


Left Hand Side
Right Hand Side

I have already worn 'Organza' all over the lid with 'Gift Basket' in the crease and i can confirm that they are lovely eyeshadows. 'Gateau' is such a gorgeous duo-chrome shade! I definitely recommend this palette to everyone!

The Sleek MakeUP Oh So Special is available for immediate release and can be found in Superdrug stores and on the Sleek MakeUP Website very soon, for £6.49!

Will you be buying?

P&G Summer Spa: Part 2

Hello sugar plums!

You may remember a while back when i posted about the P&G Summer Spa Event that was taking place with the brand ambassadors & i asked you for any questions that you may have had to put forward to them.

The event took place on the 2nd June as was a huge success with a massive thanks to everyone that took part in the polls and left questions to pass onto the P&G Brand Ambassadors on the comments of my blog post! The most popular question was the one about how a smooth bikini line can be achieved for the summer!

I have included video clips from the Summer Spa event of two P&G brand ambassadors. Make sure you check out both videos, Ben's in particular as we may have a little mention!

Ben Cooke, hairdresser & brand ambassador for Herbal Essences talks us through the perfect blow dry & combating humidity... 


Caroline Barnes, celebrity make up artist & brand ambassador for Max Factor talks us through how to perfect a smokey eye in under 5 minutes...


To find out if your question was answered and all the clips from the day can be found on the P&G Summer Spa Website here

There are 15 winners in total of P&G goody bags who will be contacted in the next week!

Thank you again to every single one of you for taking part & getting involved, making the P&G Summer Spa event a huge success!

Sleek MakeUP Caribbean Collection Blush & Pout Polish

Hello lovelies!

As you may remember, I recently posted on the Sleek MakeUP Mediterranean Collection, in particular the Monaco Eyeshadow Palette. At the same time i was sent a couple of products from the upcoming Caribbean Collection.

The Caribbean collection again consists of 3 key products, a Eyeshadow palette in Curacao, a Pout Polish in Bonaire and a Blush in Aruba. First things first, I absolutely LOVE the packaging! I love the original classic black packaging with the Caribbean print on each product!  
I love them both! Peaches and orange are staple summer colours and even though the blush looks super scary in the pan, it is as soft as butter and blends with ease. The pout polish also gives a lovely peach sheen to the lips without the colour been too over the top, leaving lips glossy and not sticky, it smells amazing too!

Both the blush (8G) and pout polish (10G) retail for £4.29, an absolute bargain for so much product if i do say so myself! 

The Sleek MakeUP Caribbean Collection is available online at sleekmakeup.com and in superdrug stores from the 6th July for a limited time only.

Any of the products take your fancy?

my new love

Hello ladies :)


A few days ago i received a sale email from Harrods and after a cheeky little look at the website I knew that this beauty had to be mine! I have been lusting after a See by Chloe purse for quite a while, but as i only need one purse at a time &i haven't had my Vivienne Westwood purse that long i couldnt justify the £145 price tag, however when i saw that it was in the sale for less than half price & for £69.95 i knew that this bad boy had to be mine!

Let me introduce you to the See by Chloe Cherry Envelope Purse.
I have never had a purse in this colour before, I tend to stick to classic black as they will never date and go out of fashion, although saying that i absolutely love the tan colour of this & the leopard print lining of course!

There are still a few bargains to be had in the Harrods Sale so pop over if you are in need of a little retail therapy!

Postage is a little on the steep side and was £5.95 but i received my purse within 3 days of ordering! Worth it i'd say!

Jelly Pong Pong The Lavish Collection Part 2

Hello beautiful ladies!

I recently posted part 1 of the Jelly Pong Pong Lavish Collection and i now have the final 2 products.

Jelly Flush is a cheek stain that has a jelly consistency. When i opened this product, it had leaked down into the bottom part if you can see from the first picture? I managed to pull the tube out and give it a clean but just be aware if you purchase! The Jelly Flush smells absolutely amazing! Like sweets, I am in love with the smell! It is good enough to eat! This doesnt dry instantly giving you the chance to blend it in as much or as little as you want into the cheeks. I was very happy with the lasting power of this product, that settled nicely into the skin giving a rosy glow. It blended in easily and gave a lovely flush of colour to the skin. I will definitely continue to use this. It seemed to apply better to my cheeks than it did to my hand as i had to swatch quite heavily to get it to show on my hand whereas only needed a swipe or two on my cheek. The Jelly Flush retails for £12. 
How gorgeous is the colour of this? I love the packaging of the Lip Frosting, the squeezy tube is huge so you get lots of product and the colour is a gorgeous girly pink with shimmer. The Lip Frosting is not in the slightest sticky, which if im honest is what i expected and glided on to the lips with ease leaving a lovely sheen. The scent is Irish Cream Pavlova which smells amazing. I tried this on top of the All For Eve red lipstick i received in my Glossy Box which was a perfect match! The Lip Frosting retails for £12.

Overall, I will get use out of all the 4 Jelly Pong Pong products from The Lavish Collection and particularaly love the Brazillian Sun Bronzer which will be perfect for summer!

You can have a browse of all the Jelly Pong Pong products on their website. They have some fab offers on at the moment and a free gift with every order, worth over £8!

mememe drama eyes quad

Morning sweethearts!

I was recently sent one of the mememe Eye Inspire Catwalk Quad Collection Eyeshadows in Drama Eyes. The first thing i noticed about this eyeshadow was how similar it was to the MAC mineralize eyeshadow quads, especially the ones from the Colour Craft collection. 

This particular eyeshadow quad 'Drama eyes' is full of silvers, blues and a black which cannot be much further than colours i would usually wear as i am very much a neautral eyeshadow girl although i think i am fully converted! I must admit, this isnt the pigmented of eyeshadows i have ever tried, but neither was the MAC mineralize eyeshadow quad which i have tried in the past, but colour can easily be built up with a few swipes of your finger or brush. 
The eyeshadow is pretty much crease proof, I used a MAC paint pot in painterly underneath as a eyeshadow base and the colour lasted amazingly well. There was absolutely no fall out of product whatsoever which is always a bonus with eyeshadows and they blend with ease.
The mememe eyeshadow quads retail for £6.50 which is a ultimate bargain for 4 eyeshadow colours in 1 and is available to buy on the mememe website. 

As a final thought, I must admit i am very impressed with the quality of these eyeshadows, they have converted me to the world of colour and i think the price is amazing! I will definitely be checking out the 'Goodess Eyes' quad which is full of neutrals! 

Will you be giving these eyeshadows a whirl?

my go to eyeshadow look

Bonjourno!

Hope you are all well my lovelies! If this all goes to plan (fingers crossed) I will currently be in Greece sunning it up with my wonderful girlfriends!

Today i thought i would show you my 'go to eyeshadow look', as most of you are probably aware of i am a neutral eyeshadow girl through and through, possibly a little scared of colour? or dont think my eyeshadow skills are good enough to pull off bold eyes, who knows! So these 3 colours work perfectly and go with pretty much every make up look!

Ladies, meet my eyeshadow BFF's 
♥ MAC All That Glitters ♥
♥ MAC Patina ♥
♥ MAC Satin Taupe ♥
I would seriously recommend these eyeshadows to anyone and everyone! They are my favourites in the whole wide world! They are so versatile! Usually, I wear All That Glitters all over the lid, this can also be worn on its on for everyday if you dont want to go all out. I would then apply Patina to the crease and ever so slightly on the lash line and then i will apply Satin Taupe to the very outer corner and on my upper and lower lashline. Followed my liquid eyeliner, pencil eyeliner and lashings of mascara then i am good to go!
As you can see from above, the 3 eyeshadows when blended out are quite subtle but i love it! 

What is your go to eyeshadow look? Do you own any of my favourite colours?

Jelly Pong Pong The Lavish Collection Part 1

Hello darlings!

I blogged about quite a few of the Jelly Pong Pong products quite a while ago which you can see here and i have since get my hands on 4 new products from The Lavish Collection.

The collection comprises of 4 products:
Jelly Flush ♥
Lip Frosting ♥

Ive been roadtesting these products for a couple of weeks and thought i would share my thoughts with you! Today will be part 1 where i look at the first 2 products in the collection.

The Wide Awake Palette is a palette that contains 3 products, a illuminator, a highlighter and a eyebrow sculptor with three eyeshadow shades that can be used singly or mixed together to get your perfect shade. The highlighting cream is gorgeous and a perfect shade for my skin tone. It contains a mirror which is always a bonus and is housed in a gorgeous, handy palette. This retails for £15. 
♥ Brazillian Sun ♥
I really do like this product! The packaging is gorgeous and girly, if not a little bulky and wouldnt be suitable for travel! The bronzer itself is absolutely huge, so will last a while, has a slight shimmer and is a gorgeous shade of bronze that isnt too dark or orange. It looks lovely on my skintone and can be built up darker if needs be. I used my   Sigma Contour Brush to apply tis and it buffed into the skin with ease. I did attempt to use the flower puff to apply the bronzer to the whole of my face but it was very easy to go overboard! Use a light hand! Overall, I definitely see this is a bronzer that i will be reaching for over summer! This retails for £15.


I hope you enjoyed! Keep your eyes peeled for part 2!
