Yello

Hello, so here's a post about a cheeky something I bought when I was having a rubbish day! I'm posting this from my phone so don't know what it's gonna look like!
I bought this Christmas palette from Dior for £53. Eek I know! But I was having a rubbish day and thought I'd treat myself!
Isn't it lovely!?

Making a comeback

Hello, I'm back on the scene!

I thought I'd start by writing posts on products I've been using lately and what ones have gradually become favourites!

My everyday lipstick has to be 'Cosmo' by Mac. I bought this ages ago mistaking it for another, but it's safe to say, it's now my 'go to' lipstick when I'm stuck for what colour to wear.


(I never understand what the 'Amplified' bit means :()


For me it's a natural colour, so I'd happily wear it everyday. It's a creamy formula, so doesn't make you get the weird filmy thing on your lips when you've worn lipstick for too long! (know what I mean?)

Birthday Box Ideas

It's one of my friends 21st birthday today so I made her a pressie!
Whether or not this is original, I decided to make her a 'glossy box' stylie birthday box.


If it's easier please feel free to watch my video on how I made the box etc, on YouTube.

I didn't really have budget on how much I was going to spend but considering it was Kate's 21st, I decided it wouldn't really matter how much I'd spend! (hello empty purse!)


So here is how I made the box look like inside!


Alot was stacked on each other as I didn't really have enough room. 

Annnnnyyyway, here's the video! For some reason it won't let me put it here, so here's the link!

Guilty Guerlain


I've recently discovered I have an obsession with Guerlain. I never even knew about the brand a couple of months ago and now I'm all over it! Seeing as I work in cosmetics, make up is constantly surrounded by me. Therefore I have more of a chance of wasting my money on more things I don't need. :(
The Terracotta range from Guerlain launched only a little while ago I believe, and these 2 beauties are some of my favourites. So I thought I'd share it with you!

Terracotta Spray; Bronzing Powder Mist. 
This is a beautiful (bronzing powder mist) which gives a gorgeous glow. I've used this on my face and top half of my body for when I've been going 'out out'. It gives a lovely tanned, but not too tanned look which looks healthy and sun kissed. I use this also when I think my foundation may look a bit pale, so I just darken it up a little with this! Another advantage with this, is that it's also protecting whilst you wear it, with an SPF of 10. You can get this from John Lewis for £35. (Eek!)

Terracotta; Eau Sous Le Vent
(In a nut shell, this is a Soothing Moisturising Mist/Refreshing Tan Enhancer)
I am yet to use this properly, but it smells just like 'holiday'(I'm sure you know what I mean!)
 This is the type of product that, if your laying on the beach and fancy a freshen up, a spritz of this will do just fine. So even though this will 'freshen you up' it's also a tan enhancer. Therefore, you're not just spraying a £34 (Eek) product, you're also getting a benefit from it, so you're sure to enhance a tan! 

These two are more than likely going in my bag when I go on holiday next month. 
I know some may think it's a bit pricey and I won't lie, they are! But this is all in the name of 'savings'!

(baring in mind its past 7pm so lighting isn't great!)
But I feel it gives a subtle glow for a tanned effect.

Bourjois 1 Second Nail Dissolvant

So I'm pretty sure the majority of people in the blogging community have seen this baby out and about!
It's the new Bourjois 1 second Nail Polish Remover (sounds unbelievable I know).
I thought I'd do something a little different and video myself removing a polish! Then I feel it seems a bit more believable!
I got this from Boots for £4.99. I'd say a little expensive! But, if it's as easy as it looks then I'm sure I would repurchase it!












Here's the video!;
