July Glossybox

What a treat we were given this month! Most of the products were full sized, though we did have a little paragraph telling us to remember they are sample company and we shouldnt expect this all the time. I have been very appreciative of all the boxes ive received. The theme to this month was 'ready, set, glow!'

Firstly I got Ciate in Big Yellow taxi worth £9 

I must admit when I opened the box and saw yellow polish I was a bit shocked but I'm going to try a pedi with it. 

Next i got Weleda pomegranate body oil worth £19.95

I've been using this in place of moisturiser and im in complete love! 

Then I got Inlight organic face oil worth £25.00 

Also in love with this, Even though its an oil it wont break you out.

I then got Illamasqua pure pigment in Tingle worth £15.50 

Haven't tried this yet but i'm excited about this as i've never tried any Illamasqua.

Then i got a Xen Tan 30ml sample in Dark

Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe 236ml

All in all a fantastic little lot....What do you think? Do you get Glossybox? Do you want to get Glossybox? What do you think of this months?

Do let me know

Magazine Freebies and Ciate

Free with Cosmopolitan magazine this month you get a free Missguided Nail polish worth £5. I got the colour across the top which I haven't tried out yet.

Free with Marie Claire this month you get a free Ciate lipgloss worth £9. You get to choose from Hot Pink Ibiza or Nude St Barts. I picked up Nude St Barts and I think it will be the perfect combo with some of my nude lipsticks.

I've officially jumped on the Ciate Bandwagon when I saw this code for £10 off  CTMC10 for, so you can get a nail vanish for free and then pay the £4.95 shipping fee but i went on to buy more and got my shipping free.

firstly got Cookies and Cream 


I think this colour is just right up my street. I love neutrals like this and hopefully I can get away with such colours when I start working. I love the signature bows on the nail polishes of this brand. I'm a bit of a sucker for packaging and I think this is very cute! 

Whist on the Ciate website I saw a gift set deal of £100 worth of product for £40, when i used my code i spent £39 including postage for the gift set and the nail vanish. A bargain hopefully!

This is the gift set: 

Which comes with 

  • White Chocolate Nail Polish Remover - They had me sold at white chocolate! costs £14 alone cute bottle that will look lovely on a vanity.
  • Miss Rich Nail Growth Promoting Balm -  costs £16 alone would look fabulous on a vanity! 
  • Love Me Oil - Cost £11 by itself, smells like cranberry, for dry cuticle and prevents hang nails
  • Underwear - Base Coat cost £11 alone
  •  Polish Grip - another base coat that acts like a primer to lock in colour and prevent chipping again costs £11  
  • Speed Coat - Fast Drying Top Coat cost £11 by itself, im running out of my trusty Jessica speed dry oil so hopefully this is a good contender.
  • The Glossip - £9 fabulous coral colour, think i'm becoming addicted to coral
  •  Cupcake Queen - £9 an iridescent hot pink 
  •  Sugared Almonds - £9 a pastel peach colours

Here's hoping Ciate is well worth every penny and cant wait to finally try out their nail range!

My new fitness love!

Me and the boy went shopping recently and we picked up Kinect for Xbox 360. I'm in absolute love! In my opinion its better then my Wii which I will be selling at some point, with the money i get I might buy my little one a DS or something. I feel kind of bad as Wii has good games for kids, but we wont be using it now we have kinect. Wii is aimed more toward kiddies from 3 years old whereas Kinect isn't exactly aimed at kids at all. 

Anyway my new fitness love is ZUMBA

Everyone knows that Zumba is the 'in' fitness thing and I know exactly why, Its more like having fun than working out! You can burn a mega amount of calories in which seems like a very short time. Although i'm  bummed I have to work the calories burned in a 'Zumba class' out by myself. 

So in all honestly I find myself a bit of a good mover after downloading the demo I did a couple of runs on that, then brought the game outright.I went straight on to a 45 min workout class intermediate. The game does not tell you what move is next your thrown straight into the deep end. However if you went to a Zumba class that exactly what happens, so I've heard. When dancing you get a person who looks a bit digitalized like this.

The person goes green when you hitting all the right movements, yellow when your doing some of it and red when you totally off key. It also highlights the areas your not doing right in a circle, so then you can rectify yourself. The bar down the middle goes up as you hit the moves right and then brings you up stages, which get you better points.

In all honesty this game is fairly new to me and i'm navigating my way through it at them moment so im not 100% on everything. Navigation is 'fumpy' there must be another way of making this easier, and im sure they will rectify this in the next game. 

I read on one review on Amazon that one lady dropped a jean size in a week and after 6 weeks her body is completely different. YES PLEASE!! This game is all wiggling your hips, moving your legs, waving your arms and shaking what your mama gave ya! Change your clothes into work out clothes when you do this as you get very very very sweaty! 

All in all im in love!

Coca Cola Vanilla Lip Smacker

I was in Primark the other day to purchase some new panties, once at the checkout i noticed a bowl full of canned drinks style lip balms. I was in there 3/4 weeks previous so id already pointed it out to my partners mum who said she brought one for her young son. So I picked one up for the novelty factor and the fact they put the random bits out at the tills for people like me, who spend way more than they first anticipated. 

I paid £1.50 for this and I literally haven't put it down. It smells like cola bottle sweets which i personally love the smell of. I had dry lips when I first brought this and now they are lovely and smooth especially as I havent exfoliated my lips for a while.(not just a novelty it also works!) There's other flavours too including: Sprite, Coca Cola vanilla,cherry, Orignal, Fanta orange, pineapple and Strawberry and Dr Pepper.

Will you be picking some up? Do you already have them and what do you think? Or which flavours do you want/like best?

Im quite partial to trying them all out

A little Haul from America

Some family went away to U.S.A recently and when I asked them  to bring me back some stuff we cant get in the uk they agreed. I've been excited ever since and I got my items yesterday.

Sorry they were the right way up uploading them is making it turn

  1. Loreal voluminous Million Lashes - I think you can get this is the U.K but im not sure its the same formula ,as the names are different but I could be wrong! I was after the Loreal voluminous that they discontinued in the U.K, but i don't mind i haven't tried this before. Here's what my lashes look liked after application.

2. Next, I got Sally Hansen Salon effect nail polish strips, these arent available in the U.K yet but apparently we should expect to see them in September. I got the colourway Laced Up, it comes with a mini file/buffer and a cuticle stick.

3. Next I got Wet N wild palette in 335 Silent Treatment 

Really lovely highly pigmented colours wish we got more a selection of wet and wild in the U.K

4.Essie Sand Tropez - really lovely beige colour 

5.  Wet N Wild Pink Nouveau 511B
Really lovely long lasting lipstick in a bright pink

Me wearing Pink Nouveau
6.   Wet n Wild Illuminating powder in Strike a Pose


I love wet n wild! Bring a better selection to us Brits! Pretty please!!!

Mini shop at House of Fraser beauty department

Today i seeked a couple of items of my wishlist!

I went to the Clinque counter and picked up clarifying lotion 3, the lady at the counter asked me if id ever tried the 3 step skincare range (which i haven't) so she gave me two generous sized (30ml) samples of cleanser and moisturiser

This 3 step skincare range is aimed at my combination to oily skin

1. Free sample of liquid facial soap in oily skin formula
2.Clarifying lotion 3 in combination oily - £15 for 200ml
3. Free sample of Dramatically different moisturising gel

Then I headed over to the trusty MAC counter, whilst searching online I noticed they had re-released the lipstick Ever Hip - £13.50 

I realise this is a shoddy Iphone picture but i'll do a review on it very soon!

Glossybox no 2 June

Hello everyone,

I got my Glossybox super late as there's been a mix up in my account which hopefully will be rectified so I can get a July box, but I've been told it might not be possible. So anyway this month everyone got different products in their boxes. Some people have been really angry about this month and there has been a huge PR disaster on Twitter over the company. I was semi happy with my box and this is what I got.

  1. Margaret Dabbs hydrating foot soak - Full sized and worth £20 
  2. Baptise dry shampoo original - I will use mine but as discussed over Twitter and Facebook not a high end brand
  3. Opi nail polish - Small bottle but im really loving the colour see here-  
  4. Bioeffect BGF serum - worth around £30 odd pounds came with a £30 off voucher on full sized which is around £100 
  5. Lalique - Perles De Lalique - really not the scent for me 

Im happy spending £10 for this box, I do still feel its been worth it especially as there's £60 worth of product in two items, which I like! I will still order Glossybox for now but i'm excited to see if i've made it to get a first Boudior Prive box 

Get deluxe-size samples of luxury make-up, skincare and bodycare products and more to try out in the comfort of your own home. Just £10 per month. click here to sign up

I'm in complete love with this colour! Since i've purchased it I've worn in either on my fingers or toes every time i change my nails. I read in a magazine recently that metallic shades are going to be huge for A/W 2011.This ones a keeper for me!

Clinique clarifying lotion 2

This sounds like a bit too much information, but just as you think your face is really clean this will wipe off even more dirt, this is on my beauty wants list (which if your interested in ill post it up). My partners mum said I could use hers to test it, so this has been added to my long list of wants! 

Lee Stafford Poker straight flat iron spray

The reason I like this are on this blog post here. My hair feels like silk i'm loving it! 

Make Up

Urban Decay Naked Palette 

Colours toasted had been my favourite lid colour and the hustle in my crease, comes with primer potion to keep eye make up all in one place.
