Mini Elf haul disappointment.

I ordered a few things from Elf the other day and I just thought I'd share what I got because I'm not very happy with most of it. So I'l give you my honest opinion as always with these products.
All four of the items are from Elf's Minerals Collection.

So I got these two eye shadows:

One is a darkish purple and the other is a pale/goldie colour.

I'll start with the purple which is called 'Royal'.

As you can see from the picture its very shimmer which I'm not that bothered about but on terms of the colour if I'm honest I don't think I really like it. Its a very nice colour if you lightly use it but if you layer it at all it goes a very dark muddy colour which you can probably see from the picture. So I would say its okay for light use but I am disappointed as Royal says to me rich deep purple not a deep muddy colour.
Next we have the pale/goldie colour which is called 'Elegant.'

Now this one is a completely different story, its really rich in colour and layers perfectly without blotching like the 'Royal.' So I really do have great reviews for this one because its a great everyday colour if you like shimmer. I do recommend this one as it reminds me of a really nice beachy colour.

The last things I got were two lipsticks:

I will give you a review on both but to be honest they arnt good and I do feel sorry saying this because I love elf but I'm not gunna lie to you or me.

So this first one is called 'Runway Pink'

In terms of colour its completely different to what it looks like on the online picture but I'm not that bothered because its an okay colour. The problem I have with both the lipsticks is that when you first put them on they are just about okay but after a little while you lips look like they are covered in grease. This happened to me the other day when I was try them out and it looked alright when I left the house but when I got to my work it looked absolutely awful, extremely greasy and not nice to look at!
For those who want to know this one is 'Natural Nymph'
and again has the same story of turning horrible.
So to be honest I'm really not that happy with this haul except the 'Elegant eye shadow' but I would really like to know if any of you have had this problem with the lipsticks or if its just me?
Please don't be put off by Elf because they have some extremely nice products but I just wouldn't recommend these.

I've been really board with my hair recently because it's just so flat all the time, I don't have any layers any more and because my hair is so long the weight of it pulls my hair down, which basically means no volume what so ever.

I have maybe been thinking about having layers again but as my heart isn't 100% init I don't think I'm ready to give it the chop just yet.

So I came across these little beauties in Clair's Accessorise:

As you can see from the picture it's basically three small bridge shape grips that sit underneath your hair creating the volumized big hair. Which to me looked to good to pass up.

They where £10.00 for the three grips and it also comes with a mini pin tail comb and a massive booklet showing all the different styles you can do.

As I have only just got them I can't give you a full review but I will be very very soon as I'm desperate to see if they will give me some volume and stay in.

Do any of you have any tips for long hair like mine of how to volumize it or have you tried out Bumpits and got on well? Let me know.

Lime Crime make up.

For those of you who love bright make up and I mean really love bright make up then Lime Crime is for you.

This has got to be the most brightest coloured make up i have ever seen.

So Lime Crime is a newish rage that came out in 2008 created by Doe Deere and i love the way it just makes you think of candy. As you can see from the pictures its super bright and so rich in colour! Lime Crime was a website that I came across one day and I just really wanted to share it with you because although it's really bright I am actually really interested in getting something to try.

This is the items i'm looking at:

Eye magic dust

Eye magic dust 2

Eye magic dust 3

What do you think, is the lipstick to bright and what do you think of the Magic dusts? Do you think Lime Crime is something fun and different?

I think that I may purchase a few things but I think most of it really is too bright for me although I may be wrong.

So what are your thoughts one Lime Crime?

December, let the countdown begin!

So it's that time again!
YES IT'S CHRISTMAS... (in a few weeks!)

But I for one love the countdown to Christmas I think it's just a really fun and exciting time getting ready to enjoy a beautiful day with your family. I have to say Christmas to me is just about family time, I'm not bothered about presents and expensive meals however nice they are. I'm just happy to spend sometime with my family and I just love seeing the look on my boyfriends face when he opens his stocking in the morning.

So what I would love to know is what Christmas means to you?

Batiste dry shampoo.

Batiste dry shampoo was one of the items I was sent by the lovely Alex and the other day I was having a real lazy day and I just couldn’t be bothered to wash my hair. So I decided to try it out as a quicker solution then having to dry my hair for ages.

If I am totally honest I wish I had taken photos because the result was amazing!!!
I really didn’t spray alot on, I’ve noticed people spray it really close to their heads and it ends up leaving really big white powder patches all over their hair meaning that they then have to go and wash it off. But I only sprayed a tiny amount on each section of my hair and from about 30cm away and there was no white patches, I didn’t have to wash it off and it still looked clean, healthy, shiny and smelt beautiful. So a tip to help you is less is more and dont spray it to close.

I extremely recommend this product as a quick solution when in between washes and at just £1.95 I think it’s defiantly worth it.

You can get this pretty much every where as far as I know in stores like ‘Boots’ and ‘Superdrug.’ So defiantly take a look.

Bubble bath?

I love Bubble bath! I think there is nothing better than to coming home after a long days work, have your boyfriend run you a bath and diving into a paradise of bubbles!

So for those of you who like Bubble baths like I do heres a little post for you.

I’m always on the look out for the best bubble baths around and to be honest so far I’ve had pretty pathetic bubbles. I am known for tipping nearly the whole bottle in one bath because I really do just love to be surrounded in bubbles.

Now this is a new bubble bath iv recently got and I am liking it alot although the bubbles aren’t massive, I don’t have to tip a whole bottle in to see a result.

So this is the ones I’ve been using:

You can get these one Asos for £2.00 or I got mine from pound stretcher at the same price. For their smell I’d say it’s okay not great but okay, the raspberry has a much more stronger smell then the strawberry.

But..... The best part I have to say is that they have recipes on the front of how to make a strawberry cheese cake or a raspberry pavlova which I think is a lovely touch.

All in all until I find the perfect bubble bath, these will have to do.

There is also a few other flavours I haven’t tried:

I want to ask you if you know of any good brands and if you enjoy relaxing in bubble land.

Getting to know me.....

I wanted to do a little post to help you all get to no me abit better. Also to get back in the swing of things as I haven’t been able to get some spear time for blogger this past week so here’s a couple of facts for you about me and if you would like to do the same feel free to do so.

I’ll start with one of my favourite foods, which is of cause.......

I for one love Sushi, I can eat as much as I like without feeling bad because Sushi is full of good things and really healthy.

Strawberries!! Yes a second healthy favourite that I really could just keep munching and munching away on.

Another favourite would be my boyfriends homemade rolled lamb stew, it is one of the nicest things I’ve ever had. Plus it’s dead cheap to make.

Lastly you can’t beat a good Chinese or a big slap up Christmas dinner I love em.

Moving on to my favourite TV programs.
For this without a doubt it’s going to have to be...


I love this program to the bone I think it’s so interesting all the things that happen and I love the fact it takes you away so you can get lost and hocked on something that is different to a normal TV soap.

In all honesty Supernatural is probably one of the only things I watch as I don’t get much time for TV. Although I will sit down to a good dose of smallville or masterchef.

Onto films....
In all honesty I don’t have a film that stands out as being my favourite. I love watching films, one of the best things to do is to sit on a comfy sofa with your boyfriend, a bag of popcorn and a good film. Ahhh you can’t beat it.

I would defiantly say I’m a horror girl but not for the gore more for the adrenalin rush that goes with it if that makes sense.

Getting to know me abit better.....
Well here’s something you might not no, I am currently working in a very lovely bridal store and I love it. As well as working hard it has its benefits, for example try on £1000 tiaras all day is something I can live with.

Role model?

In my personal opinion I don’t think people should have role models to follow I believe we should all create are own styles and live’s how we think they should be to us and not to other people if that makes sense. I’m not saying role models are bad, just that if we have them we should'nt go so far as to trying to be them. So therefore I actually don’t have a role model but I do have people I admire for their personality and style.

So here’s a few for you just so you get an idea.

My first person is probably not the most well non person put she is still famous.
Kendra Wilkinson....

Okay the first thing you are probably thinking is why would you admire an x playboy model. For one I’m not choosing her for the modelling side, I’m not a guy. But I’m choosing her for her personality, she has such a bubbly character and a great sense of humour that I think is important in life. The main thing I like about her is that no matter what people think of her she does what she thinks is right in her life. For example her mother tried to convince her not to get married or have a baby at 23 but she listen to what she wanted and trusted herself to do the right thing. Now look at her she has a beautiful baby, gorgeous husband and a lovely home.

It’s important that we follow are hearts and not other peoples even if our mothers think they are helping us sometimes at the end of the day it will always be our decision in life.

Now this next one is probably one of the most popular people to admire, and it is of cause.....
Marlin Monroe.

Marlin Monroe is still one of the biggest icons around with her beauty and well known phrases. The thing I like most about Marlin is that she had the confidence of being a good size 12/14 and not a 0 like most models here today aspire to be. In life it’s important to know that whatever size you are your still beautiful.

Favourite animal?
A favourite animal I would say would have to be a beautiful white tiger!

They really are beautiful animals.

Now this part is very important to me, I would defiantly say the most important person in my life. My gorgeous boyfriend Chris.

We’ve been together 2 years now and we are still as much in love as the first day we met, he is the one who can just bring a smile to my face even when I don’t want to, and know when something is up even if I haven’t said anything. I really am truly in love with him and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.
(sorry the pictures not to great focus wise, i was also having a bad hair day)
So cheesy I’m so sorry.....

And of cause are beautiful baby cat ‘Kitty’ great name I no.

Okay this next one is a confession, so be prepared to be scared (hey I’m at poet and didn’t know it :P) Anyway when we were all younger we all started off with our own style and mine was defiantly a bizarre choice but I must admit fun while it lasted but not so sophisticated as I am now.

My old style was ....Big hair......Big bold clothes........Heals.........Tiny outfits..........Bows...........So much pink

............Yes I was Trashy I had the big hair the pink extensions, the miniskirts, the heals, the hole deal so there is my confession for you all to humour at. Aha

So it’s the little things in life that bring the biggest smile and I thought I’d share a few that bring a smile to me. Of cause my boyfriend does but we’ve done the soppy part.

The one top thing that melts my heart and brings a massive smile and a twinkle to my eye has got to be a Red Rose. I am a complete sucker for red roses I love them so much they really do just make me smile.

Another has got to be bows, strange I know but I just think they are so cute.

Cupcakes are another there are just so many styles of cupcakes and they just bring a smile when you eat them.

Lastly I would say that unique necklaces would be a big craze of mine. For those of you who have seen my tea cup and spoon necklace you will no I love these sort of things.

Lastly I thought I would share my 3 favourite make up brands with you.

Of cause Mac,
I love Mac I think there amazing in everything they do with their makeup.

Nyx is so cheap but still an amazing brand as well.

And of cause I newer favourite Majolica Majorca, I simply adore this make up it’s just so rich in colours and has such beautiful packaging.

I really am sorry about the length of this but I hope it gives you an idea of my style and maybe an interesting read for you. Anyway there will be lots more posts for you very soon.

Take care x

So heres alittle picture of some of the things I got.

Some of the items I got:
Christina Aguilera perfume (MY FAVOUITE!!!) from my lovely boyfriend
Asos Caprice Can Can bra (I love Caprice she is super pretty and her bras make you feel like a super star!!) From my mum
Chocolate box (almost gone :D) My boyfriends mum
Necklaces from my sister and best friend
Two Mac lipsticks and a voucher for one of their classes from my mum and dad
Two tops one from Topshop the other Quiz from my mum and dad
La senza nighty from my mum
Black dress from New look (I wore on the night) from my mum

There is a whole load more but like I said to keep it quick I will do reviews later on for you all.

All in all my birthday its self was completely amazing my boyfriend really made it special for me and I had a lovely day with him and his mum and then my family later on. So to my boyfriend thank you babe because of you I had the best birthday ever and I hope the rest are just as good.

A little cute lipgloss.

I thought I would show you all this very cute lipgloss I picked up the other day.

Strawberry cupcake! Cute right...

Like most people I’m a sucker for little cute things that make you smile, and this certainly makes me smile. Cupcakes, Strawberries and lipgloss awww!!

Anyway so I got this the other day for £1.00 very cheap and when I opened it I wasn’t sure id like it because its alot darker then what I’m used to. But after trying it I love the colour!
I actually really like the colour it goes on smooth and full of colours not just pink but purple and blue under tones with a slight slivery gold in there to. It’s defiantly out of my normal comfort zone but I still like it. Even though it’s not a sticky lipgloss I still think that it’s nice to have a change and try something new.

The smell is okay, because it’s only a little cheap lipgloss of cause it’s not going to be amazing but I actually think it’s nice. I would say it’s a mild fruit sent but still nice.

So if you want something cute to smile at I would go get one of these little babies to smile at. I found this in a joke shop for £1 but they also sell the exact same lipgloss in Peacocks in a three set for £2 or £3.
