Lush ❤

Last night my sister, my sisters friend Louise and I went to a Lush party. Lush were having a VIP party for their new make-up range Emotional Brilliance. We started off by making the blackberry bath bomb. Then they announced their new make-up range. My sister Olivia was the first to get a conciltation. One of the staff from lush stood at the make-up counter and spun the colour wheel while Olivia closed her eyes and when she opened them she had to pick the first three colours she saw and the staff member told her what they all meant. Louise and I went after. I then bought some products and got given a goodie bag! After I had a look through my goodie bag I got a hand massage which was really relaxing. I will end this by showing you what I got in my goodie bag x
I hope you enjoyed reading this x

My Nails ❤

Today I want to show you my nails. They are a "Fairly Odd Parents" themed. If you don't know what this is, they are a cartoon on nickelodeon that I used to watch when I was little. You can't really read what the left hand says but the green one says "Cosmo" the pink one says "Wanda" and the Purple one says "Timmy". The right hand has pictures of the characters and the logo on the thumb.

Review: Graze Box ❤

Hello today I will be doing a review on the graze box. I got my first graze box on the 27th of June. I was really excited and I opened it to find four tasty snacks. The first snack was black pepper pistachios. I like pistachios and when I tried them I fell in love. They were so tangy and delicious that I had to eat them all. The second snack was my thai which was a sweet and sour dip with rice bite. I wasn't to sure about these but I tried them and I have to say they weren't my cup of tea. The third snack was vanilla seeds. I'm not a fan of seeds but when I tried them I was pleasantly surprised. The fourth and final snack was cherry tomato, basil and pesto focaccia. Oh my goodness. This was by far my favourite snack out of all of them. The bread was so fresh and it tasted so good.



I hope you enjoyed reading my review on the graze box.

Homemade Brownies! ❤

Today me and my friend Sarah decided to make some brownies. We chose to make Nigella's "Everyday Brownies".



Pre-heat your oven to Gas Mark 5.

You start by adding 150g of unsalted butter into a medium sized pan until it has melted. Then you add 300g of light brown sugar and stir until it has turned into a syrup type mixture. In another bowl sieve together 150g of plain flour, 75g of cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate soda and a pinch of salt.. Fold the flour/cocoa powder mixture into the syrup mixture. Remove from heat. In a bowl or cup mix together 4 eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Pour into the flour/syrup mixture and mix together. Add 150g of roughly chopped chocolate ( I just broke it into the squares ) and quickly pour in a non-greased brownie pan. Leave in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Cut into 16 squares and enjoy ❤.

My Angry Birds Nails!

When I did these nails, I was very into playing angry birds. I use to play it all the time and one day I thought I should paint them on my nails. My favourite nails are the thumbs because I think they look exactly like the green pig on angry birds. This project took me about an hour to complete but it was worth it in the end. These nails lasted for about a week and a bit. I used mostly Barry M nailpolish and I also used my nail art pens to put in the final details.



I hope you enjoyed my nails and comment what you think I should do on my nails next.

The Bargains I Got!



Today I went to a car boot sale. For those who don't know what a car boot sale is, it is when people gather things together from around the house that they don't want anymore and put it in there car. Everyone that has done this will gather in a field or pitch were they put their things on display and other people come and buy their things. When I was there, I spotted a box of nail-polishes. I went over and had a rake through it. I found a butter London nailpolish and got very excited. As I was looking through the box, I found an OPI nailpolish and a NARS nailpolish and I just had to get them. I found the topshop nailpolish at a different stall for 50p. All of the other nail-polishes were a pound! I do love a bargain!



I hope you enjoyed my little story :)

Would You Rather - Beauty Edition !


I got this idea from http://emzoo.blogspot.co.uk/ when she did it on her blog.I thought it would be fun so here it goes.

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

I would lose all of my palettes and eyeshadows because I could live without them but I could not live without my mascara and lipgloss.

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I would chop off all my hair because if it grew back I could decide what length I wanted it whereas if I could never cut it again, I would be an old lady with really long hair :O

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I would choose coral because it is less obvious.

4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

I would choose makeup because I will grow out of the clothes and that would be a waste of the money.

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

I would apply eyeliner as lipstick because you can get colours of eyeliners that I would wear on my lips but I couldn't imagine applying lipstick on my eye :P Imagine applying it on your waterline :O

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

I would choose to only shop at sephora because you can buy from more than one brand.

7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?

I would rather only using one eyeshadow colour for the rest of my life because I don't always like to wear eyeshadow but I love wearing lipbalm and lipgloss.

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

I would easily wear winter clothes in the summer because my summer isn't very hot.

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

Bright nails! :D

10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

I would give up my favourite eye product :)

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

I wear my hair in a messy bun everyday anyway :)

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

Never use lipgloss. I love painting my nails! :O

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?

I would shave them off because I could pencil them in until they grow back in again.

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

I would rather live without nailpolish because I can't live without me concealer.


I hope you enjoyed this would you rather. Comment what your answers would be <3

Favourite Lush Products!


The other day I went to lush and I realised I had a voucher. I was really excited and almost jumped for joy. I was having a look around when I came across the Big shampoo. I have seen reviews about this shampoo about people saying that it dries out your hair but I have also heard good reviews on it saying that it makes it volumised. I took a chance and bought it. I tried it out that night and slept with my hair still wet and in the morning it was definately more volumised. I recommended it to my friend and she said that she would try it out the next time. I have been using it a lot and I have become very fond of it. It is a salt shampoo which gives you're scalp a good exfoliation. Big shampoo has a nice scent which is a bonus. I have had complements on my hair saying that it looks different and more volumised.

I have also tried the aquamarina face cleanser which makes my face very soft. I don't particularly like the smell but it makes my face look and feel good. You get a lot of uses out of it because you only need to take a tiny pinch of it at one time. I found this product when I was on holiday and I went into lush and got stopped by an assistant who was very nice and gave me tips and let me try out anything, which was fun. He brought me over to the cleansers and asked me some questions about me skin type and things and picked out the one that he thought would suit my skin the best.

I would have to say that the lip scrubs are my favourite lush products so far because I think that they work really well at getting any dry skin off my lips and they make my lips taste and feel nice. I have the mint one that smells and tastes of after eights and I have the bubblegum that tastes and smells of strawberry bubblegum. Mmmm :).


That is all for my favourite lush products.

I hope you enjoyed it.

5 Fun Hair Styles for Summer!



1. Messy Bun with a Quiff/Poof




This is probably one of my most used hairstyles. It is very easy to do. All I do is, put my hair in a ponytail, then I rap my hair around in a circle and tie it together with another hair bobble. I finally take my overgrown fringe/bangs and fold it back and push it forward then pin it down with three or more kirbies/bobby pins.


2. Messy Bun with Twisted back Fringe 




Number two is an even easier hairstyle. All you have to do is repeat the first two instructions on the first hairstyle and then take a chunk of your hair (I use my overgrown fringe) and twist it to the side and pin it with two or three bobby pins.


3. Simple Braid




All I did for this one is I separated my hair into three parts, braided it in a simple braid and tied it with a hair bobble.



4. Braid Bun




For this hairstyle, I did the simple braid and then i rapped it around itself like the messy bun and pinned it with two or three hair grips.



5. Side Braid



Finally I did the side braid because it is easy and it gets all of your hair out of your face. I personally would wear a hairband with this just to keep back any extra hair that comes away.



I hope you enjoy :)
