Just in case you didn't know...

Forever21 Grand Opening tomorrow in London!

Excited! I know where I'll be on the 28th! 

Also, sorry I haven't posted for a little while, I simply haven't bought anything! I've done a few YouTube videos lately, so check them out if you're missing me! (ha...)

Hope you're all well! If you got any ideas on what you want me to post on, or do a video on, please let me know! As I'm kinda struggling. 
(I know what I'll be posting about when I've been to F21!)

I finally caved in and subscribed to GlossyBox!
Pretty glad I did as this month's box is an absolute treat! I applied at the end of May for the box so I've been waiting ages!

So, I thought I'd share a video with you all (as I'm sure all the other GlossyBox subscribers will) as I'm feeling lazy and can't be bothered to type! The products in the box amount to over £50, which I didn't mention, so it's honestly completely worth it, if you like the products!

Hope you're all well.

(not sure why this video is going all over the place!)

Make-Up Swap!

So excited! I just received my package from the lovely, Sophie!
We've been emailing for a few weeks and decided to indulge in a make-up swap. There are some things here in the UK that Sophie wanted and there were some things in the US I wanted! (Which either of us can get in our countries...)

So, here's the beautiful package that got delivered today!

Warning: Picture heavy post!

Lovely packaging! and a sweet smell of cakes?! 

Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette (which is the main thing I wanted!)
B&B Candle - Pineaplle Orchid (smells absolutely gorgeous, fruity and zingy)
Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush in Flower Girl (Sophie uses this as an upper cheek highlight, as will I!)
UD xxx Cooling Lip Gloss (Never tried an UD gloss, so this will be exciting!)
Wet n' Wild in Wineroom  (As I like grapey coloured lipsticks!)
Essence Lipliner in Soft Berry (Will use this for extra grapey lips!)
Wet n' Wild Eyeliner in Purple (Bold statement!)

UD xxx & Victoria Secret products.

Wet n' Wild lipliner and eyeliner.

Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette and B&B Candle.

Wet n' Wild grape lipstick.

So that's what I got. I'm so happy too! 
I'm super excited to try the Sonia Kashuk concealer palette as that was the main thing I wanted. Seeing loads of good reviews on it and not being able to get in the UK, I knew I wanted to try it. Therefore, I'll be sure to do a single post on it to show you what it looks like! 

That's all I think. Gonna go and try out these products! 
Adios! x

Big, bouncy and aussie.

Went shopping today with my friend Kate to Bluewater cruising with the roof down!
Picked up a few bits that I really shouldn't have seeing as my bank account doesn't look too pretty! But here they are:

I picked up this gorgeous mustard/yellow coloured bikini from Urban Outfitters for only £10! 
It's by Cheap Monday and was reduced from £30. HUGE Bargain! The colour looks better in real life, but it was the mustard shade that made me pick it out! Bandeau style top and wide sided bottoms. Really love this! Seeing as I'm planning a holiday for this year, this will come in handy! I'd never really to think to look for a bikini in Urban Outfitters but glad I did now I've found this beauty!

The fairly new Caribbean Collection from Sleek! (Sorry about the finger dip!)
 I saw this Pout Polish featured on another blog and thought I just had to get it! I feel like I can get away with orange colours so needed to try it haha! This orange SPF15 polish is called 'Bonaire' enriched with jojoba, avocado and sweet almond oil which glides on with a tint of orange glow to the lips. Really summery and really great for a quick lip pick-up! It's Limited Edition so if you like this, you better get it quick! I bought this in Superdrug for £4.49. 
I was also after the Caribbean Collection Blush called Aruba. The colour looks really daunting in the pot, though with a light sweep, you get a lovely Coral hue!

Carex Hand Gel: I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to washing my hands, so figured this would be great to leave in my bag for a quick sproose up! You only need one pump for a whole cleanse. Also, this is a moisture plus, so makes it feel like you've properly washed your hands with gel and water! This was £1.40 from Boots.

Aussie Curl Definition & Soft Feel Serum: I got this in Superdrug as they were doing a '2 for £6' Aussie deal! I obviously couldn't refuse. I've been wearing my hair 'au naturel' lately and hardly straighten it. So it's in pretty good condition atm which I'm pleased about. My hair is naturally straight, but I wouldn't mind a natural wave some days, so picked this up! It's a serum that catches the curls in your hair to give them a full definition and soft feel. A coin size amount of the product is more than enough for your whole head, considering how much hair you've got. The smell is gorgeous and my hair felt instantly smooth when applied. I can already see small flicks and curls developing. So, a good buy!

Aussie Curl Defining & Shine Mousse: Just to match the other product I picked up this curl defining mousse. I thought it would work well with the other one for extra defined curls. Use this on damp hair and scrunch for curls. For EXTRA curls, once your hair is dry, use a curling iron to style! I think I'll use the Serum more, but then I've always got this as an option! Both products smell lovely!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Big & Bouncy XXL Volume: Oh my word, I can not emphasize how volumising this is! Bit of a horrible photo but I wanted to show you it actually works! 
I honestly can't believe how volumising this is haha. (I better stop saying it!) I sprayed this into my roots, massaged and scrunched it a bit, and VOILA! Instant Boof! With an extra bit of hair spray, this boofyness won't drop. A-ma-zing. It's a bigger bottle than the ordinary Batiste at a price of £3.99 from Boots. Really glad I got this. Normally I only use Batiste on the days where I can't be bothered to wash my hair, but with these results, I think I'll be spraying it into my hair more often! 

Aaaaand I think that's all! Does anyone know where I can get Morrocan Hair Oil from? Been hunting everywhere! Also, super excited to get my first Glossy Box this month. I finally gave in and subscribed!

Hope you're all well!

I love Barry

Posting quite a lot now cos I feel bad for not posting for over a week!
Just painted my nails so thought I'd show you my new design! 

Basic but tricky! I'll show you another pic of how I done it...

Simply by taking some masking tape and placing it on my nail where my white tip starts! Sounds easy, but it can be kind of tricky! I made sure the tape wasn't too sticky by touching it a few times, as I had previously put on a base coat, and didn't want that to come off! Then I simply took my polish colour and painted on the tip, not mattering if I got it on the tape or not!
In this look I used 'Peach Melba' by BarryM. I was originally going to use black, but I think I need a new one! I don't always choose to use BarryM, it's just because I've got a ridiculous collection of the colours, so it works quite well!

I then topped off the look by using BarryM, topcoat, basecoat & nail hardener to give that shiny effect!
Not sure why I went for this look, think I wasn't too bothered about having something crazy, so went for subtle but interesting!

So here's the collection.

Collection 2000 Bargain New Mascara!

Collection 2000 have recently bought out this new mascara.
'Super Size Fat Lash'
It says, 'Supersize your lashes! Super volumising mascara for big bold lashes'. I got this in Superdrug when I noticed Collection 2000 were doing a offer, 'any products £2.99 and under, get 2 for £5. So, obviously, I jumped at the chance and bought 2 things for a fiver. I got a lipstick for a friend and knew I needed a new mascara, so thought I'd give this a go!
Seeing as some Collection 2000 products are really good, I wondered if this would be too!
But, after applying the mascara to one eye and seeing the outcome, I'm not sure I'm pleased.

So this is with.

And this is without.

To say the least, I'm pretty disappointed! The packaging states, 'big bold lashes' and I don't think I can see any! I'm thinking that it might of been £2.99 for a reason. I did only pick this up on a whim of trying a new mascara but I am quite disappointed. I like my lashes big and bold! You can see a difference in the photos, but I don't think these lashes would stay elevated and maybe a re-application would be necessary!

So I'd say, if you're gonna get the £5 deal for 2 items, go for 2 lipsticks or something else!

I can't believe I haven't posted for over a week! Terrible! Sorry!

I don't think I've posted because I literally haven't bought anything exciting or make-up related. I did buy some clothes in the sale so I'll be sure to pop photos of those up when I can.

I've been really busy too. The last week I've had a few interviews so I've been preparing, researching, finding clothes to wear etc etc!

But for now I'll show you a glimpse of my latest nail look!

Cute and Summery I think!

To get this look I used:

BarryM products! My collection of BarryM is growing more and more, I forget what colours I've got! First up I used the;
Basecoat, Topcoat & Nail Hardener
Along with, Berry
and then... Silver Cascade (which is a newbie to my collection) on my ring fingers!

I got the Silver Cascade polish in Topshop at Oxford Street. I've never seen it in any of my local BarryM boutiques so I'm figuring up the city is where you'll find it easiest to get! It's a really great selection of glitter and doesn't budge for anyone! (I can warn you it is a bit of a pain when you want to get it off!)

I forgot I had the colour Berry so it was nice to use this again! Fits in well for this weather which doesn't want to make up it's mind! 


Have any of you tried this?

New - John Frieda: Precision Foam Colour

I got my hair cut the other day but normally colour it myself, as I find it cheaper! My hairdresser and I get along quite well and she insisted I NEEDED to dye my roots. Haha! Normally I use Schwarzkopf XXL Colour (whatever it's called...) But Sarah (hairdresser) recommended this one by John Frieda. 
I must admit I'm a little scared to use it as it's not your normal dye, but a foam instead! Eek! 
I decided to get this colour; Deep Cherry Brown as I fancy a tinge of red in there!

So if any of you have used it please tell me what it's like and how to properly use it! I'm sure I'll manage but any help or tips would be great! I would love to do my hair Ombre/Dip dye style, but I just don't think it's long enough! I'm in one of those stages at the moment where I don't know what to do with my barnet! Therefore I'm just going to leave it and let it grow.

I think I may do this colour today, so I'll be sure to take a before and after photo!


Vera Wang; Lovestruck

I was watching Fleur (FleurDeForce) on YouTube and she spoke about this new perfume by Vera Wang called Lovestruck. Normally I don't really look for new perfumes as I love the ones I've already got! But after a good ole trip to Boots, I saw the huge stand for Lovestruck and then saw some cheeky samples! I didn't think I would like this, but the more I smell my small sample, the more I fall in love with it! 
Not to mention the packaging! Oh my, it's probably the prettiest perfume bottle I've ever seen!

Here is the description:

Vera Wang Lovestruck Perfume is the brand new fragrance from Vera Wang. It is all about being overwhelmed, inexplicably, hopelessly in love. Vera Wang Lovestruck Perfume opens with notes of exotic and juicy pink guava and soothing angelica blossom. The middle notes bloom with tones of intoxicating and sensual tuberose with aquatic lotus flower, whilst recious woody notes and sheer musk form rich and longlasting base 

 Whether or not I purchase this, I don't know. I think I may have to give my boyfriend a little hint!

Other News...
I am currently in the process of doing a make-up swap with a lovely lady called Sophie from America! Check out her blog linked! So that could be why I've been busy too! I'm about to send her pressies today. I can't wait to get mine so I can do a blog post on them!

I promise to be back soon with more posts! Hope you're all well!
