30 Day Snap #30 | Sunny Sunday ☼

Hey girlie's!!

So today is the very last day of the 30 day snap. I'm not gonna lie, its definitely been a challenge getting these posts up everyday but I'm so pleased that i stuck with it and didn't quit half way. 

It's been so nice discovering other girlie's blogs as well whilst I've been taking part in the snap. I also love the fact that its been a great way for me to document a small part of my life and i can look back on what I done throughout June 2013, i love making photographic memories.

Anywhooo here's today's snap....


Its been a beautiful day in Norfolk today, i have no idea where this hot sunny weather has come from but it would be lush if stuck around for abit longer. Today i was at work again but it went quite quick and as soon as i locked up i saw Michael was waiting for me so we decided to head into Weatherspoons for some food which i quickly demolished ha ha, we then took a slow walk home enjoying some sunshine, well you have to make the most of it in this country don't you? 

Did you take part in the 30 Day Snap??? Let me know what you thought of it???

June Favourites ♥


Hey girlie's!!

 As the month of June is drawing to a close i thought i would share with you all my favourite beauty products I've been loving throughout this past month.....

Sinful Colors 'Island Coral'


Ive been wearing this colour non stop recently, its a gorgeous peachy coral colour that's fabulous for this time of year. It looks pretty on toes too when wearing little sandal's. Its completely creamy with no shimmer or glitter running through it at all and takes 2 coats for a nice opaque finish.

Soap & Glory Heel Genius Foot Cream



This is my new love.. I never really bother with my feet, the most i do is paint my toes and that's about it. However... as I've been wearing sandal's loads recently i thought i should pamper my feet a little as they where slightly dry, i massaged some of the cream into my feet before bed and in the morning my feet where soft, smooth and there wasn't any dry skin in sight. It's literally amazing and well worth trying.

Rimmel Glam'EYES Day 2 Night Mascara


This mascara is so snazzy, it feels like you get 2 mascara's in 1 which i love. I will be doing a full review of this on here soon so i wont say too much apart from i love it and its does the job well. 

Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae Body Butter


This little pot of pistachio goodness is one of the best body butters I've ever used. The rich creaminess of the body butter helps repair dry dehydrated skin and has a 24 hour moisture boosting additive to keep you feeling pampered and moisturised all day long. The smell of this is also to die for, it has a deep nutty pistachio scent which honestly smells so good you could eat it. If you haven't tried it yet id urge to get 1, I'm nearly out of mine as it was a glossy box 50ml sample but I'm definitely going to buy the full size very soon.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush


Ive been using this 'Buffing Brush' to apply my foundation for a while now and i can honestly say my foundation has never looked so good and has never gone on so quick. The Buffing Brush application provides an amazing base that isn't heavy or cakey, its also an extremely versatile brush that you can use with bronzer, blush or powder. I have quite a collection of these 'Real Techniques Brushes' now and can honestly say I've never had a bad application with any of the others in the collection, they are also all reasonably priced which is a nice little Brucie bonus.

What's been your favourite beauty product this month?? I'd love to know :)

Tag | Would You Rather | Makeup Addition


Hey girlie's!!

I was tagged to do this by Dee from Dees Beautiful Life so i thought id join in on the fun!!

1.Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lip glosses or all your palettes and eye shadows?
Hmm id say id rather loose all my palettes and eye shadows as much as that would nearly kill me ha ha. You could still make a nice makeup look out of your mascara, eyeliner and lipstick.

 2.Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
As hard as it would be id chop it all off, as it would still grow back again. If you never cut your hair again it would be an awful matted dead ended hair mess ha ha.

3.Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Definitely a pink cheek as I'm not a lover or coral blushes on myself to be honest.

4. If you had £1,000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
For me it would have to be makeup, i just love it. I have loads of clothes anyway that i never wear and i find much more enjoyment shopping for makeup than i ever do about buying clothes. Just think of all the high end makeup you could get with £1,000, arrhh i can but dream.

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?
I could never even imagine doing either of these ha ha, but i guess it would have to be apply eyeliner as lipstick, i mean lipstick as eyeliner would be awful.

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Definitely Sephora for me as your not limited to just the 1 brand.

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
I would rather use one lip colour for the rest of my life as i love wearing eyeshadow too much and i could never do a nice smokey eye with one eyeshadow.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in the summer or summer clothes in the winter?
Winter clothes in the summer. We always have shockingly awful summers here in the UK anyway and the thought of wearing little dresses and flip flops in winter... Ohh no not for me.

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Hmmm well if I'm honest i much prefer winter colours on my nails anyway so id have to go for dark nails all year round.

10. Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
Id give up my favourite lip product. I love my eye products far too much.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Definitely a messy bun. If I'm honest i don't tend to wear my hair up that often but if i do it always goes into a messy bun.

12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
This is an easy one for me, id never use lip gloss again. I love having my nails painted too much.

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or Sharpie them in everyday?
As much as i hate it when people draw on their eyebrows and as bad as it would look id have to sharpie them in. Your eyebrows really frame your face so id need to have some sort of brow going on. What a bizarre question!!

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
As much as i love my nail polish id have to give it up as i could never live without my makeup.


I hope your enjoyed this type of post, please let me know if theres any other tags you'd like me to do. I tag each and everyone one of you lovely beauties to join in.

Barry M Glitter Nail Paints | Review & Swatches


As you may or may not know I'm a huge glitter polish fan, anything that sparkles I'm instantly drawn too and i usually have to buy, so i decided to pick 2 more little beauties up. I know these Glitter Jewel Nail Paints have been out for sometime and i do own a few from the collection but i thought 2 more wouldn't hurt he he.



Pink Sapphire is great for all those girlie girls out there that love abit of bright pink sparkle.
Its a clear base with minute bright pink glitter flecks in, the bigger glitter particles come in 2 shapes, hexagons and small chunks of bar type glitter.

The colours of all the glitters inside are so pretty, the small bars of glitter tend to be sliver and holographic and the hexagons are a bright pink with the odd hexagon that's silver and holographic too.

This makes a beautiful top coat for so many shades or even if you wanted to play it safe you could just go for a glittery ring finger instead.



Rose Quartz is absolutely crammed full of glitter and great if you want a burst of glitter on the nails. Rose Quartz is a clear base polish with minute holographic flecks and is also crammed with rose pink hexagon glitters inside.

I would use 1 coat as a more full on glitter top coat as there's so much glitter inside this polish  but 2 coats could give you complete sparkle mania nails. 

On a whole I'm really impressed with these and they look so pretty. I brought mine from Superdrug for £2.99, what a bargain for such beautiful glitter polishes.

Have you tried any of these?? What did you think??

30 Day Snap #26 | Work Selfie

Hey girlie's!!!

Today was a looooonnngg day at work so there was nothing to really photograph so i thought why not do a cheeky work selfie on my lunch break ha ha. All i plan on doing for the rest of my evening is just chill out and catch up on all my TV shows and munch on high calorie treats, whoop.

30 Day Snap #25 | Disney Love

Hey girlie's!!!

So its day 25 of the 30 Day Snap today. If your a little confused as to what the 30 Day Snap is you can find all the information in full here. 


I love this picture/quote, its so true that no matter how old you are you can never resist a good Disney movie and as i was watching some today i thought it was quite fitting to share. Today has been a major chill out day for me, i haven't felt great so thought id just rest up on my day off  before work tomorrow. I don't very often get the time to just sit and relax and watch Disney movies so I've actually really enjoyed today.

Revlon Nail Enamel In 'Popular' | Review & Swatches


When making a recent Fragrance Direct order i decided to pick up another Revlon nail polish as I'm a huge fan. I decided to get ' 230 Popular', its a pale pink with silver hexagon shaped glitters and minute silver shimmers throughout it. 

The pictures don't do it any justice, its such a pretty glittery polish.

The reason i love Revlon's nail polishes so much is not only are there so many shades to choose from ( around 50 i think ) but the formulation is fabulous, i find they all apply smooth with no streaking, dry relatively quick and are quite long lasting. 


As you can see from the swatches to get a full opaque look from 'Popular' you need around 3 coats but u can also create a real pretty subtle nail with just 1 or 2 coats. I personally love using this as a glittery top coat, it just looks so pretty.


As you can see i used 'Popular' as a top coat on various different nail polish shades and i think 'Popular' looks pretty on them all.

I'm definitely glad i picked this shade up as a good glitter polish is right up my street, it was also an absolute steal at just 99p, oooshh.

30 Day Snap #24 | Cute House Decor

Hey girlie's!!!

So its day 24 of the 30 Day Snap today. If your a little confused as to what the 30 Day Snap is you can find all the information in full here.
Yesterday whilst out with my Mum i picked up a few more cute little bits for my house, I'm terrible when it comes to cute little decorations, i just love them.

Face Of The Day | My Everyday Makeup



I thought id do a little post on what makeup I'm currently using on a daily basis. Id like to say i don't wear too much makeup on a daily basis, just the basic staples. I do always get myself in a little routine of the same products for a while and then switch it up abit if I'm getting bored or if I've purchased a few new goodies. Anywhoo here's the run down of the current products I'm using.

♥ Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation in '100 Ivory'

♥ Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer in '010 Ivory'

♥ Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in 'Medium', I'm only using this to powder over my Concealer to set it into place at the moment.

♥ Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 'Soft Pink'

HD Brows Kit in ' Foxy' using 'Ash Brown'

♥ Urban Decay NAKED Basics palette using 'Naked 2' all over the lid and 'Faint' in the crease, then i defined my upper lash line with 'Crave' instead of going for liquid liner.

♥ Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner in 'Black'

♥ Rimmel's Glam'EYES Day 2 Night Mascara in 'Black' 

♥ Revlon Lip Gloss in 'Kiss Me Coral'

I hope you enjoyed this type of post girlie's.

30 Day Snap #22 | Sunshine On A Rainy Day

Hey girlie's!!!

So its day 22 of the 30 Day Snap today. If your a little confused as to what the 30 Day Snap is you can find all the information in full here. 


Today I've been chilling indoors as quite frankly the weather has been atrocious, i minuete its been blue skies and sunshine the next minuete its been pitch black clouds with pouring rain, so I've played it safe by just staying inside. I have been feeling slightly sad that I'm not at IMATS this weekend, i really wanted to go but the fact of leaving everything last minuete and not having the money saved stopped me from going, i will definitely be going next year though without a doubt.

Fashionista | Customise You Own Palette Review & Swatches


Recently whilst having a snoop for beauty bargains online i noticed that MUA Cosmetics had a new addition to their website, Fashionista. Fashionista is a makeup brand that used to be available in Superdrug, i have no idea if it still is available in Superdrug as in my town we never had the Fashionista stand atall. As i was browsing i couldn't believe the affordable prices, everything is half price on the website right now so it would of been silly not make a cheeky purchase.

I decided to build my own little 4 shade palette, personally i think this is a fab idea as you get to choose all the shades that your filling your palette with, therefore you not going to end up with a palette with the odd shade here or there that you will never use, brilliant. I opted for 2 eye shadows, 1 blusher and a bronzer, you could always opt for all eye shadows or all blushes etc the choice is yours.

The shades i chose are....


Cafe Au Lait is a pearl champagne colour eyeshadow, great for using as a highlight on the brow bone or inner corners of the eyes. 


Brunette Bombshell is a pearl dark chocolate brown eyeshadow with tiny bronze shimmer particles running through it, the pigmentation is amazing and its very soft to the touch.


Amber Glow is the only Blusher i picked up, although it doesn't look like it in the picture its actually a coral shade with rose gold shimmer particles running through it. Its very pigmented and a little definitely goes along way with this.


Paris is the bronzer i picked up, i actually wanted to try this more as a contour shade than a bronzer but i don't really like this colour at all. Its a matte orange/rust colour when applied on the face which looks awful on my skin tone,  however it is quite pigmented for a matte shade so that gives it a few points.

My Swatches....


My Palette....




All in all I'm really impressed with this, its a fabulous idea to create your own little palette, the pigmentation and quality is great and the fact all of it only cost £7 when usually 1 eyeshadow costs £4 alone, its an absolute steal. You can also get a six shade palette for £10 at the moment too. 

I'm not too sure how long the offer runs until so get them why you can girlie's.
