Lovestruck Vera Wang Perfume


I absolutely love Vera Wang's perfumes, they smell amazing and look great. Lovestruck is a great floral perfume and is perfect for Summer.

"The fragrance is a sparkling addictive floral you are sure to fall in love with. There's an instant attraction to the mouthwatering pink guava and mandarin, followed by a delicate mix of tuberose and lotus blossom. Behind it all, precious woods and sheer muskenvelope a passionate elegance." - Vera Wang website

It is one of my favourite perfumes and I really need to buy more as I have run out. I really want to try Vera Wang's pink princess perfume and the bottle looks really cute. One of the thing I love about the perfumes is that they come in beautiful bottles and they look adorable.

Soap & Glory travel products


Soap & Glory's travel size products are perfect for when you are going on holiday or even if you want to try out the product but don't want to pay the price for the real size product.  The travel size products cost £2.50-3.50 depending on the product, it's a good bargaining and a good way to get people to try the products.

Being a lover of all Soap & Glory products, it's a given that I love the mini size products and I will certainly be taking them on holiday with me. I have four of their travel products: Body Moisturizer, Shower Gel, Body Mist and Body Buffer.

The Body Moisturizer is a body butter and smells amazing. The Body Mist is leaves skin feeling softer and even smoother, it is best to use it once you have come out of the shower. I have the "Girligo" Body Mist and it is a soft smell. The Shower Gel and the Body Buffer both are amazing products.

I would recommend to anyone to purchase the full size products, as the are great and are worth every penny. If you are worried about having to pay a lot of money for the full products then try the travel size ones, you will not regret it. You can also buy shampoo, conditioner and antibacterial hand cleansing gel in the travel size products.

All Soap & Glory products are available from Boots.

July Beauty Product buys


Here are all my beauty product buys for July and I love the all of the ones that I have tried so far.

I have wanted to try Garnier Moisture Match for a while now and it is amazing, I love it. I bought the dry skin one and since having it, my skin has been much softer. Another bonus is that it smells amazing. You can buy it from Superdrug, Feelunique.com or Boots.

I absolutely love Palmer's Cocoa Butter products, they smell so good and are amazing. So when I found out that the did a lip balm, I was pretty happy. I have one of their skin care product and it makes my skin smell edible, so you can see why I wanted the lip balm. It is awesome and for anyone who love the Cocoa Butter products, this is for you. You can buy it from Superdrug or Boots.

17's Va Va Voom Waterproof mascara and Max Factor's Wild Mega Volume mascara are both products I have not used before so I thought I would check them out and see if they are any good. They are both great products and do not disappoint. 17's Va Va Voom Waterproof mascara is available from Boots for £6.29 and Max Factor's Wild Mega Volume mascara is available from Superdrug for £4.99 (on special offer).

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter is another great buy and it comes in a lot of great colours. You can buy it from Boots or Superdrug for £7.99.

I bought three nail varnishes, two Accessorize and one Maybelline. Accessorize Miss Sunshine and Green Lagoon nail polish costs £2.95 from Superdrug. Maybelline Blackout nail polish costs £2.99 from Superdrug.

I also bought the Maybelline Dream Pure BB for oily skin from Superdrug for £6.99 which I have yet to try.

John Freeda's Sheer Blonde conditioner is my last beauty product that I have bought this month and am looking forward to using it. You can buy it in Superdrug or Boots.

Barry M Confetti Nail Paint


It's not a secret that I love Barry M nail varnish, it's a great brand with tons of different colours and types of nail paints. I would say that about 70% of my nail varnishes are Barry M. I had heard about the Barry M Confetti Nail Paint but had yet to try it out, so I decided to guy and buy one shade to judge if it was any good. I choose the black and white shade, as I thought that I would use the Confetti Nail Paint as a top coat to my Rimmel 60 seconds nail varnish. It turned out amazing and I love it. It is awesome and gives an effect to your nails without having to try and draw it on yourself. You can also just use the Confetti nail paint on it's own but I thought it looked better as a top coat. I applied two layers of Rimmel black nail varnish and then two layers of Barry M Confetti nail paint (Liquorice shade).

Barry M Confetti Nail Paint comes in 5 different shades: Dolly Mixture (gold), Liquorice (black and white), Marshmallow (light coral colour/pink), Bubble-gum (blue) and Sour Apple (green).

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick - Kiss of Life


I have wanted to get a red lipstick for quite a while now and I decided to try to find a red in Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick collection. There were two reds that I liked, a bright one and a darker red. I ended up buying the darker red lipstick as I thought it would suite my complexion better.

I absolutely love the Kiss of Life (111) shade of Rimmel's Kate Moss Matte Lipstick and am very happy with it. I think the darkness of the shade makes my eyes look very blue and looks better than the bright red would have been with my very pale skin. It also stays on for quite a while and does not fade out quickly like some other lipsticks do.

I think the Kate Moss range for Rimmel is fantastic and I like how there is a good variety of different colour lipsticks to try to suit everyone.

Accessorize Nail Varnish



For Christmas, I received a Accessorize Nail wardrobe as a present and I absolutely love it. It consists of nine nail varnishes, of which 3 are glitter and the other 6 are a variation of different colours of pink. I love the set and all of the colours in it, there is a blue and a blue glitter, two other pink glitters and five pinks ranging from light pink to red.



I started off doing my nails, by doing two coats of light pink. What I love about the pale pink colour is that it will go with anything. It is an elegant and casual colour that I can wear with any outfit. I wanted to add some sparkle to my nails, so I added one of the glitter nails varnishes.



 I choose to use the red/silver glitter nail varnish instead of the bright pink glitter one, as I wanted to keep the pale pink and the brighter pink glitter one made the pale pink brighter. You could easily use the glitter by itself but personally I think it looks better with a background colour.

The end result is really good and pretty. I think the combination of red/silver glitter goes well with the pale pink. I love the Accessorize Nail wardrobe set, especially the glitter nail polishes. It is available from Superdrug for £9.99.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter


Palmer's Cocoa Butter is enriched with Vitamin E, is an advanced moisturiser that softens, smoothes and relieves dry skin. Also helps smooth and blend unattractive marks and scars. An excellent after tanning butter.

I got Palmer's Cocoa Butter in a gift bag from a Cosmopolitan master class I attended a while ago and fell in love with it instantly. It smells heavenly and is absolutely divine. I cannot believe that I had not heard about it before, it is amazing. What I love most about it is how great it smells, it smells almost edible and I love how soft it leaves my skin.

I have tried many body butters and creams in the past couple of years, but only a couple have actually been good. Palmer's Cocoa Butter, Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream and Body Shop body butters are my favourite skin care products. One of the things I look for in a skin care product or body butter is that it has good reviews and smells good, I cannot stand body butters which have an awful fragrance. I would recommend Palmer's Cocoa Butter to anyone that wants a skin care product that actually works, it softens dry skin and leaves your skin with a nice smell.

Egyptian Style Jewellery


For my Summer Ball, my friends and I decided to go as Egyptians. So yesterday (Thursday 6th June), I went hunting through loads of shops to find the right accessories which would go with my outfit. My Summer Ball is tomorrow (Saturday 8th June), so my shopping was very last minute. I found quite a lot of Egyptian style jewellery and had a hard time deciding what to buy.

My 3 Way Head Wrap is from Claire's and I love it. I personally think it is quite an Egyptian look and will look good with straightened hair. It only costs £4.50 which isn't too bad. I know I have not gone for traditional Egyptian accessories which are for example from a fancy dress shop but I wanted to be able to re-use what I have bought.

My bracelet is from New Look. They had so many good ones but two really stood out, the one pictured above and another one which has crosses on it. They are both a light gold colour which goes with my accessories, so I am very happy.

Choosing a necklace was the hardest accessory that I had to choose. The necklace had to match the colour of my headband and the bracelet. The first necklace I liked was more of a Greek style, so that option was out. The second necklace was a darker gold and turquoise, it did not suit my other jewellery so that one was out too. Finally, the third one I liked is the one I bought. The colour went with everything and I would definitely re-use it. I got it from Primark and it cost just £5.



The nail varnish I have on in the picture is a glitter gold Barry M one. I decided on gold nail polish as when I think of Egyptian style jewellery or make up, I automatically think gold or turquoise. I could have gone for just a gold colour but being the glitter fanatic that I am, I obviously went for the gold glitter option. It is available from Superdrug for £2.99.

LashFibres Brush-on False Lashes


Last month, I went to a Cosmopolitan Masterclass and received a wonderful goodie bag full of amazing beauty products. LashFibres Brush-on False Lashes were one of the fabulous products which were in the bag. I had not heard of the product beforehand and soon after using it, I was left wondering how I had not known about it.

LashFibres Brush-on False Lashes makes you look like you are wearing fake eyelashes without actually having to attempt to glue fake eyelashes on and then having to painfully take them off. The Brush-on False Lashes are the latest in the lash fibre technology and it works with your mascara. It gives you incredible length and fantastic volume which adds a great effect.

It is easy to use. You apply your mascara as you usually would and then apply the LashFibres onto your lashes exactly how you would when you put on mascara. However, you must look downwards. Wait 30 seconds, then apply your second coat of mascara and your eyelashes will look beyond real. The volume and length is incredible, you will not believe how effective is and you will not regret buying the product.

Benefit they're Real mascara



Do you have trouble finding the perfect mascara that gives you long  looking lashes? Look no further, Benefits they're Real mascara does exactly the job and with amazing results.




Sometimes it can be hard to find a mascara that makes your eyelashes look long and dramatic. I have used so many different mascaras and have been disappointed with them. Some have only improved the volume or others that have not done overly much at all. I think a problem with finding a great mascara is that many claim they add length or volume which makes it hard to know what to believe.

However, a mascara that I love is Benefits they're Real as it genuinely gives your lashes a dramatic effect and makes them look incredible. The plastic brush adds volume, length, separates and lifts the lashes. Usually I use a mascara for volume and another to separate my eyelashes to avoid clumping.  Now I no longer need to because the brush does everything at once and with incredible results. I am absolutely obsessed with Benefit and adore their products, this mascara is a must have and lasts for such a long time.

It is available from Boots, Benefit, ASOS, Debenhams, feelunique.com and many more places for £19.50.
