Lipstick Parade!

Hi guys,

Hope you are all well :) I'm so happy as I handed in my last coursework today YUPIII. But unfortunately that means the countdown for the final exams has started.  Anyway... two more weeks and I'm done. I popped in to Boots and Superdrug today and bought three new lipsticks. The first two, nude (101) and the orangey (53) are from Barry M. The red one, my favourite :D is from Rimmel. It was launched couple of weeks ago I think as they advertise everywhere with it. Its called NEW COLOUR SHOW OFF LIPSTICK. It is my favourite out of all three :D Soo nice and smooth on your lips. Doesn't feel heavy at all. Very moisturising and amazingly pigmented. I quite like the nude one as well. But not sure about the orangey one anymore :-/ What do you think?

I would really appreciate your help in popularizing my blog :D



Hi guys,

I took some photos to show you how lovely the colours are that I bought yesterday :D I'm in loveeeeee! They look soo cute. Ooo before I forget. I saw today that eyeko brought out a similar colour (Eyeko Posh Polish) as Essies Mink Muffs and only £3.50.  Half the price that I paid for Essie :( Anyways... Have to go back to my coursework now :(

P.S. Excuse the state of my nails :( No time to look after myself at the moment. I keep them short at the moment because its low maintenance. Once I'm finished with my exams I will grow again :D

Hi guys, 

It's been such a busy week and its still not finished. I still have so much coursework to finish off this weekend :( The weather is so nice I could do sooo many nice things :D Such as shopping hehe Its my biggest hobby. Unfortunately, no time at the moment. HOWEVER, I took the time today at my lunch break and went into Boots. I bought three GORGEOUS nail varnishes from Barry M. Aren't they sooo cute :) Look at the colours. I also received a small parcel today with Essies mink muffs :D and when I popped into Sainsburys after Uni I bought Sally Hansen Insta Dry :D WOWW soo many nail varnishes. I think I am kind of addicted. 

Ok, lets talk about Sally Hansen Insta-Dry. The reason why I bought this is because people were comparing it to Seche Vite on Makeupalley. As many others, I bought Seche Vite and loved it instantly but after three weeks it got really thick. So I bought the thinner but then it became really weird so I chucked it away. Went back to Boots and bought another one thinking I had a dodgy one but unfortunately the same happened again. I'm really angry as it is not very cheap. How can anyone use up a topcoat within three weeks? Anyway after some research on the internet I found out that I was not the only one experiencing this problem. So after reading on Makeupalley that Sally Hansen Insta Dry has the same glossy finish but does not get thick after three weeks I decided I would try it. I will update you once I have tried it.

Has anyone tried the Sally Hansen Insta-Dry or is there anything else you can recommend that is similar to Seche Vite but less annoying :D

After reading good reviews, I finally bought LA ROCHE-POSAY HYDRAPHASE XL from Boots. As I am getting older my skin is getting drier and duller. In my teenage years I had really bad acne.  I used for many years oil free light lotions. Therefore, buying Hydraphase was a big change for me. Anyway what do I think of it??? I LOVE ITTTT :D It is worth every penny of the £16. I have been using it for a month now and it is super moisturising, does not feel greasy and it makes my skin super super soft and smooth. My face looks really fresh and vibrant. And the best is, I did not have any breakouts. I am now thinking of getting the under eye cream as well. 

Has anyone any experiences with La Roche-Posay products? I would love to hear more.



Long hair !?! Yes? No?

This picture with long hair is probably two years old now. I had quite long hair. I am growing it at the moment as when I look at these pictures I quite like them and regret getting it cut. The picture with really short hair is quite old. Cant remember how old :D What do you think? Long or short?

Oldies Goldies...

I finally bought the Heart Suspender Tights from Topshop. They were sold out all the time in my local Topshop. They look sooo great. I have to look very well after them so I can wear after the summer as well. I think I prefer them more than the Henry Holland ones. The Topshop ones have hearts on them making them more cute :D

Need a tan :(

As I do not really have up to date pictures of myself. I uploaded a picture is from two years ago. I love the dress and it looks really nice with my tan (was after our honeymoon in Turkey). Can't wait for summer. The dress is from coast. I bought it on ebay and it was knee length but I got it cut as I prefer short dresses/skirts. Sorry for the quality. My old digi-cam was crap.



Goodbye Cellulite

After reading very good reviews about Nivea's Goodbye Cellulite gel, I have decided to give it a try :) I do not have a lot but it is visible in various positions :D It is quite expensive but I hope it will reduce the appearance till summer. I know that there is no miracle cure for it but I still have the hope that I can reduce the appearance of it. I will keep you updated how I get one.



Welcome to my blog :)

I wake up in the mornings and think, WHERE IS MY LAPTOP :D I need to find out what Nil was wearing yesterday and has Bubblegarm may discovered a new beauty gadget".
