NOTD | My Milkshake Brings all the Boys to the Yard ...

Hi Lovelies, A NOTD for you Today using one of my favourite Nail Polishes-Essie Fiji.
I'm wearing 2 coats of Essie Fiji with 1 coat of Barry M Pink Sapphire Glitter on top. I think this is a gorgeous combo as I do find Essie Fiji a little too plain on it's own sometimes and I think the sparkles make it look really pretty and show off it's milky pink tone more.

Essie Fiji is one of those Nail Polishes that you either love or hate. Some people don't like it as it can look too white. I prefer to wear Essie Fiji on my nails when they are this length, When I had Acrylics on for my Birthday and applied Essie Fiji it looked to boring and blerghh (sorry that's the only word I can think of), But with shorter nails it looks great on it's own and with added sparkles on top it looks even better!

What's your favourite Essie Nail Polish? What's your favourite Nail Polish combo?

Barry M Lash Vegas Review

Hi Lovelies, As a huge Mascara Lover and hearing about Barry M's new Lash Vegas Mascara* I couldn't wait to try it out as the name had me mesmerised that I would have big, fluttery Show Girl Lashes!
Barry M's new Lash Vegas Mascara has a new spiral shaped brush that has been specifically designed to separate, define and reach the smallest of lashes giving exceptional length and definition. 

After reviewing Benefit's They're Real Mascara and being slightly disapointed that it didn't really thicken my lashes, Barry M's Lash Vegas has completely won me over! My lashes are defined, seperated, long and the main thing, thick! I can't stand Mascara's that just add a colour to your lashes, I love a Mascara that leaves you with full, fluttery lashes and this did exactly that!

I also love the brush on this Mascara as it helps you get right into the root to create more volume and it also gets Mascara on every lash to make them full and luscious!

Barry M's Lash Vegas Mascara retails at £6.49 on the Barry M Website and is also available in Boots and Superdrug.

Have you tried Barry M Lash Vegas? What's your favourite Mascara at the moment?

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Benefit They're Real Mascara Review

Hi Lovelies, I think I'm the last person on Earth to try out this Mascara!, But last week I did have my eye on this and kept questioning whether to purchase it or not! It was a good job I didn't though as at the #BrumBloggerMeet I received one from Benefit anyway!
Benefit They're Real* claims to Lengthen, Curl, Lift and Separate Lashes and with it's Jet Black long wearing formula this Mascara won't smudge or dry out... But what did I think?

I like my lashes to be long, thick and fluttery. This Mascara did the long and fluttery part but it didn't seem to thicken my lashes and just separated them and made them look spidery instead.
I do like my eyelashes like this and would wear this Mascara for more of an Everyday 'simple' Look but if I wanted thick fluttery lashes then I would use either my Bourjois Clubbing Mascara or my Maybelline Falsies Mascara instead.

This product gets top marks for it's cute packaging, the way it lengthens my lashes and how it doesn't smudge during the day and leave me with panda eyes!, the only downside is that it doesn't thicken my lashes to how I like them to be... But a Girl can't have it all eh?! 
I will still use this Mascara for work or days when I don't want thick lashes but I don't think this product is something I would purchase after using this one up. Though you never know it might grow on me!

I don't like to give negative feedback, but all my opinions on my blog are my honest, But I do like this Mascara just I prefer my lashes a little thicker, but if you like the way my lashes look then you might like it :)

Have you tried Benefit They're Real Mascara? What are your thoughts?

Benefit 'Fake Up' Review

Hi Lovelies, Benefit Fake up* was released late last month and already their has been a lot of hype about it. Benefit Fake Up Concealer is available in 3 shades, 01 Light, 02 Medium and 03 Deep, It has a hydrating ring containing Vitamin E & Apple Seed Extract to help moisturise and a Concealing Core that hides dark circles, smooths skin and diffuses light.

I have Benefit Fake Up in shade 02 Medium which as you can tell by the swatch above is the perfect shade for me, I'd recommend 01 Light if you are a lighter skin tone than me and obviously 03 Deep for much darker skin tones. 
This concealer is like no other that I've ever tried, I thought the hydrating ring would make the concealer really greasy and not last that well but it does completely the opposite! I use under my eyes and it banishes any slight dark circles that I have without leaving a 'Cakey Look' and also lasts all day without the need of topping up.
I'm also really pleased with the coverage of this concealer as it only took one sweep and then just had to be blended under my eyes, Unlike some other concealers that I've tried which just seem to soak into my skin and do nothing!

Benefit Fake Up Concealer is Available to buy from Benefit Online or any local Department Store/Boots that stock this brand and it retails at £18.50, Which is a little pricey but I think it's well worth it!

Have you tried Benefit Fake Up? What are your thoughts?

Topshop Awol | PLUS Kukee Above Knuckle Ring

Hi Lovelies, Hope you are all having a lovely week so far, I can't believe how quick it's going, but at least that means the weekend will soon be here!
At the start of April I purchased 2 Nail Polishes from Topshop and also included them in my Spring/Summer Favourite Nail Polishes Blog Post and YouTube Video, One of those Nail Polishes was Celestical and the other was AWOL which I'm showing you today.

For a while I had been lusting over AWOL but My local Topshop was always sold out and I didn't want to purchase it online as I wanted to see the colour in person. Finally My local Topshop had it in stock and the colour didn't disappoint at all!
Topshop AWOL is a gorgeous Electic Royal Blue colour, Some of you might think why did you pick such a dark colour for your Spring/Summer favourites? But I love it's vibrance and it looks amazing with a tan.
Topshop Nail Polishes are great in general too, they apply great, only need two coats and I think their dry time is average really. I know a few bloggers have said that they take ages to dry but I find they dry at an average time that any other Nail Polish does.

Topshop Nail Polishes retail at £5 each or 2 for £8 which I think is a reasonable price for any Nail Polish and Topshop also have some other cute colours too. I've also spotted 2 other colours I'm really loving at the moment, Venus Flytrap and Collegiate, So I think I might have to purchase these next!

 Kukee Above Knuckle Ring.

Pictured above you will also notice 2 Above Knuckle Rings from Kukee, We all received a piece of Kukee Jewellery in our #BrumBloggerMeet Goodie Bags. These rings aren't something that I would normally wear, but after trying them I really love them and think they look really cute on the Ring Finger.
Kukee is an affordable, on trend and super quirky online Jewellery Store that has some gorgeous Jewellery on for amazing prices! I think I might have to have a little splurge on this website sometime soon, So you never know you might see a Kukee Haul from Me soon!

Have you tried Topshop AWOL or any of the lovely Jewellery from Kukee?
Also let me know what your favourite Topshop Nail Polish is.

#BrumBloggerMeet | Haul and Goodie Bags

Hi Lovelies, Following up from my #BrumBloggerMeet OOTD, #BrumBloggerMeet Pictures and Round up of the day post I thought I would show you all the goodies I purchased while in Birmingham and also our Goodie Bags we received from Sara, Chloe and Hayley.

Haul !


What Blogger or general person doesn't love Lush products? They are pretty amazing and smell so scrummy, even me and Blogger Laura were saying that they should make a Lush air freshener that smells just like the shop! If they did I'd be buying one for every room and even my Car! ha
I purchased a Think Pink Bath Bomb for myself, A Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb for my Boyfriend (as I thought it would be something saft to buy him) and while at the till I noticed these Trial Sized Charity Pots of Hand and Body Lotion which I thought I might as well give a try for only £1!


After reading Zoe's Blog Post on the new designed MUA Nail Polishes I really wanted to purchase the one she mentioned in her blog as it looks just like an Essie dupe of a shade I was going to purchase the other week, But when visiting Superdrug they had sold out oPistachio Ice Cream so I picked up Lush Lilac instead as I don't own a shade like this AND it was only £1...Whoop!


I had to make a pit stop at Selfridges after leaving our meal as I wanted to pick up a few things and also go to Krispy Kreme! I picked me up some Lucky Charms as I really love them and thought I would treat myself to some for breakfast Sunday Morning and my Boyfriend has been going on for Yearssss about these random tasting Jelly Beans, So I scoured Selfridges for them and eventually found them! They have two coloured beans that are the same colour but one is something nice and the other is something disgusting!
The disgusting flavours are: Centipede, Toothpaste, Canned Dog Food, Vomit, Moldy Cheese, Rotten Egg, Baby Wipes and Bogie! I tried one and my boyfriend had a couple but they are absolutely disgusting, I only brought them for a joke though and because he'd been trying to find them for ages but now they are all still stuck in the box as you wouldn't dare try and find a nice flavoured one in the risk of getting a vile one!

Lastly I HAD to visit Krispy Kreme's! OMG I freekin' love Krispy Kreme and whenever I go there I always come back with loads and this time it was TWO DOZEN...Yes you got it 24 Doughnuts!
I was going to buy 4 Doughnuts but then for the extra £2 I could have got an Assorted Dozen... So I did, But then because I brought an assorted dozen they gave me a dozen original glazed free! Gahhh but I can't say I was disappointed because they all got ate anyway! Greedy.

Goodies !

At our meal we had a raffle and we all won some lovely prizes. I won a gorgeous Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely and Save the Bee's Set, which smells divine and I can't wait to try it out.

Also at the meal Benefit kindly gave us their Fake Me Up Concealer, which I've been wanting to try and also their 'They're Real' Mascara which I was actually going to buy last week, So I was really excited about that.
Thanks to John Lewis we received a Liz Earle Energising and Body Lotion, Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion and an Estee Lauder Night Repair Eye.
Lastly, Elijah from Bodhi told us about his amazing products and we also received a Ylang-Ylang Incensa Sensual Bath & Shower, Jasmine Falls Body Moisturiser and Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil.

All of these products I have never tried before, So I'm so excited to try them all out and review them all for you guys. :)

Goodie Bag !

Sara, Chloe and Hayley put together an amazing goodie bag for us all and I can't wait to try everything out and blog about it all, But I think that's probably going to take some time!
In our goodie bags we received: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Yardley Royal English Daisy & Peony, Anti-Blemish Skinetica, Headmasters Heat Defense Serum, VO5 Plump it up, Elemis Tranquil Touch Body Wash, Apivita Face Mask,  Welda Soothing Day Creme, Welda Soothing Face Oil, Smooch Lipstick, Balm Balm Lip Balm, Vitage Perfect and Diffuse, Elemis Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser, Yves Rocher Lipstick, Oriflame Volume Build Mascara, Green People Fruit Scrub Exfoliator, Macadamia Oil, Mohdoh, imPress Manicure, Haute Couture Lashes, Crystal Clear Skincare, Dr.Hauschka Powder Duo, Ginvera BB Cream and Green Tea Exfoliating Gel, Oriflame Lip Impact Crayon, Kukee Above Knuckle Rings and finally Granny Sally's Soap Kitchen!

KrissXchi Jewellery.

Also at the meet up the lovely Krissi from KrissXchi Jewellery brought us all a different piece of Jewellery each after looking at our Blogs. I had this Gorgeous Tea Pot Necklace and the detail is amazing especially the clasp which is a pretty little heart! So thanks again Krissi, I really love it and will have to feature it in some OOTD Posts!
