Moustache Nails

Hi everyone,

Hope your all having a fabulous Friday. So today, i attempted to do some uber cute Moustache nails. I know they aren't perfect but they are a pretty good attempt (in m eyes)! I really do lack a steady hand so im kind of pleased with myself.

I used Pink Friday from my OPI Nicki Minaj minis.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, whatever you may be doing.

Choccywoccydoodah is Chocolicious

Hello lovelies,

Todays blog post is about the fabulous chocolate shop: Choccywoccydoodah!

I was first made aware of this choclate company, which has a shop based in Brighton by watching their television show on the 'Good Food' channel last year. I was facinated at their amazing creations, their cakes really are a work of  art. So i decided to visit their online shop and order some goodies as i was dying to try their famous chocolate.

The website is pure choclotae heaven... the prices are also very reasonable aswell. They have a great range of goregeous chocolate figures ranging from chocolate bears to chocolate shoes and poodles- ohh la la.

Aren't they just divine! Anyways, so i ordered a white chocolate cat and a beautiful white chocolate birdy. The pussy cat cost around £7 and the bird was £6.98, they both took about a week to come and were packaged really well. The cat comes in a plastic mould, which you can re-use to create your own chocolate cats, pretty cool right?! Here they are in all their choccy glory:

The chocolate is delicious, i was almost too scared to eat them as they are so pretty to look at but... needs must!

Have any of you ladies heard of Choccywoccydoodah?

Mac Lipstick in 'Please Me' really pleases me!

Hello ladies,

So last week i picked up a copy of InStyle (march editon), which included a mini mag of 'InStyle Best Beauty Buys 2012'. A great read i must admit.

One of the lispsticks featured was Mac Lipstick in Please me, it instantly caught my eye.
It's a Matte lipsptick and ive been wearing it a lot recently (bought it straight after seeing it in the mag).
It's a lovely soft pink nude and has great pigmentation and staying power. It's perfect for both day and evening wear.

It costs £13.50, a little pricey i know but its worth it... i love it!

The only downside i feel it has is because its Matte, it shows up any chapped or dry areas on your lips so be sure to apply to nice and hydrated lips.

Heres some swatches:

Sorry girls had to use the flash in this picture as the lighting in my room is terrible.

Does 'Please Me' please you?

Lunch, Lush & Primark

Hello all,

So today i went out for a spot of lunch with my other half to celebrate Valentines Day. We are both working tomorrow and i dont know about any of you lovely ladies but as soon as i get in from a long day at work, i'm ready for my bed never mind getting glammed up and going out for a meal.

Anyways, the meal was lovely. We went to a Mexican and had yummy nachos and fajitas. Afterwards we browsed the shops and i picked up a couple of great bargains from Primark.
The first being this pretty blouse:

Bargain at £10

The second item i picked up were these adorable shoes:

£8 for these little beauties

I'm really liking Primark at the moment. Sometimes i feel it's a hit or a miss with its stock but today i got lucky!

We then went to Lush. I adore Lush, it's been a while since my last 'Lush Fix' so i picked up this uber cute Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar:

It smells of Vanilla, lasts 2 baths and costs £2.45.

There we go, thought i would share my little day out with you all. Oh dont forget to check out my March mini Giveaway post.

I would like to finish todays blog post by saying in advance...

Liz Earle: February's Skincare Essentials Regime

Hello ladies,

Well, recently I’ve went a teeny tiny bit Liz Earle daft. After reading rave reviews about her various products, I thought it was about time I took the plunge and invested in some. After all, I felt that I owed it to my skin as I’ve never really had a solid skin care regime and it’s suffered as a result of this.
I’ve been holding off writing about these products for a week or so as I wanted to give them a ‘good run’ first. I purchased the ‘February Skincare Essentials Regime’ for £41 with free P&P from the Liz Earle site. My parcel came within 5 days and I have to say, the products were beautifully packaged! I also received a complimentary 30ml tube of the Hot Cloth Cleanser with a Muslin Cloth (which I gave to my mother). The attention to detail with my order was superb.


The February Skincare Essentials Regime included:

Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 100ml, with two muslin cloths

"Our plant based cleanser has a two-phase action, phase one is the cleansing. Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make up, even stubborn mascara.
Phase two is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin. “

You massage one or two pumps of this magical cleanser onto dry skin, you then wet the muslin cloth in warm water, wring it out and gently wipe the cleanser off. Once you have done this, you splash your face with cool clean water.

I have to say I’m VERY impressed with this product, even after just a few days my skin tone appeared more even and clear. My skin felt so silky smooth after one use. I’ve used numerous cleansers which promise you heavenly skin. However none have ever delivered. This one definitely does, its exceeded all my expectations. No wonder its won stacks of awards. I honestly cant say enough about how great I feel this product is.


 Instant Boost skin Tonic 200ml Bottle

"This heavenly floral-scented, non-drying toner refreshes, soothes and brightens your skin. Gentle and alcohol-free, it also adds a fine layer of moisture.
Pour onto a cotton wool pad and sweep over face and neck after using Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. Alternatively spritz over face and body to revitalise at any time.
Naturally active ingredients include organic aloe vera to revitalise and soften and calendula, chamomile, cucumber and natural source vitamin E to soothe and refresh the skin.”
Moisten a cotton
wool pad and sweep over your face and neck each morning and night after cleansing.

A really nice toner, leaves my skin feeing refreshed. This costs around £12.25.


Skin Repair Light Moisturise for ombination/Oily 50ml Pump

"This finely balanced blend of naturally active skin-conditioning ingredients includes borage oil (a rich source of the essential fatty acid GLA), echinacea, hops, avocado oil, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) and natural antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin E to replace lost moisture and help protect your skin, leaving it soft and smooth with a naturally healthy glow.
Massage into face and neck, morning and night, after Instant Boost Skin Tonic.”
This light moisturiser includes Borage and Avocado, its smells divine. It doesn’t leave my skin greasy like most moisturisers do and I haven’t had a problem with dry skin since its first use. I love this moisturiser! It costs £18.25 for the 50ml pump. I shall be repurchasing this again.

Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask 50ml Tube

"Problem: dry, parched and stressed skin.
Solution: this deeply rehydrating ‘moisture’ mask will help to replenish, calm, condition and moisturise skin.
Apply to face and neck and relax for 10-15 minutes.
Naturally active ingredients include St John’s wort to soothe, borage to help lock in moisture and rose scented geranium to help tone and balance.”

I have yet to give this one a go as I’ve been solely focusing on the Cleanser, Tonic and Moisturiser over the last week and a bit. This costs around £12.75. I shall report back once I’ve used it to give you all my verdict.

So overall, I’m in love with Liz Earle. The Cleanser, Tonic and Moisturiser are just what my skin needed. I think I have found my skin care regime for life and am very impressed. Great value for money with fabulous products. My skin has never felt so nourished, suple and clean. The normal retail value is £57.00 based on idividual item prices, so a saving of £17.

Have you tried Liz Earle?
