Beauty Giveaway

Hi everyone!

I hope you all know how much I appreciate you spending your time reading my posts and leaving comments, always being so devoted and caring! I thought I'd treat a lucky gal/guy to a few products through a new giveaway! It is worth nearly £52 so I think I've done well with providing all these items with my own money!! This giveaway will only last around a week as I am planning on creating a new one in December which will be more festive than this one!

So as you can see there's a variety of products in this giveaway which includes the following:
- 3 pairs of patterned socks from New Look
- Roll on perfume in 'Pure Dusk' from New Look
- Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette in 'Iconic 3'
- MUA eyebrow kit in 'Dark'
- MUA brick highlighter in 'Iridescent Gold'
- Wella Professionals Moisturising Hair Treatment Mask
- Eyelure false eyelashes in 'Double Lashes'
- LE Christmas 2015 Minnie Mouse from Disney Store

So as you guys can see, there's a few things to be won which are (well, should be) everyones favourites! Even if you wouldn't keep the products for yourself they would make great Christmas stocking gifts! I especially love the eyeshadow palette and will definitely be getting one for myself soon! 

Good luck to everyone! 'May the odds be ever in your favour'!! 

Lots of love,

2015 || June Favourites

Hello Beauty Lovers!
Last month I've been loving everything to do with hair dye! I had three different colours in June - from blonde to grey and then to pink. You can read about my journey with grey hair here. All the products in this post have been bought at Poundworld - yes you are reading this right!!
Firstly, the eylure eyelashes are one of my favourite pairs I have ever bought, and believe me when I say that I've used a lot of pairs in my life! I can't believe they were at my local poundworld!! I will definitely buy more pairs next time I see them. They look great on and feel like feathers as they are very light weight. 

The Jerome Russell lighting spray has actually worked well since the first use. I can see a change in my hair colour and it looks as if I had recently put in some highlights. I would highly recommend this product if you have light hair and are after a balayage effect.

It was the first time I have come across the Kinky Curly Straight brand and I must say that I am beyond impressed with the quality of the conditioner and the ingredients are mostly natural unlike other brands. It has a variety of oils which are good for your hair and full of nutrients. I will definitely buy the whole collection next time.

The Mellors&Russell simply bright hair dye in pink is actually quite effective. I wouldn't say it was amazing and the colour didn't come out as I was expecting, this however could be due to my hair not being light enough, but it's a good product for the price and is worth buying if you already have very light or bleached hair ready for some colour.

On the other hand, their simply bright non permanent colouring conditioner has worked a bit better on my hair leaving it with a nice pinky-peach colour. I have although kept it on for only 5 minutes rather than the recommended 15, so I guess the longer you keep the dye on the better the result. 

Have you tried any of those products? If yes then please mention which ones in comments below!

Lots of love,

Eye Make-up of the Day EMOTD

Hey there lovelies!
In today's post I'm going to show you a fee pics of my eye make-up from the other day. I was inspired by MUA's make-up artist and because I do not own the make-up items that she's used, I had to improvise with what I already have.
I used Era by MAC as an all over base. Then i drew the shadow outline with a navy eye liner from L A Colours, and filled it in with Steamy by MAC and blended it with Deep Truth also by MAC. I used my 194se blending brush by MAC and a cheap blending brush for all of the shadows and the eye liner. I also used 368 Tempo by Dior which is actually my sister's eye shadow and I used it for the inner corners of my eyes.
I used Natural Collection's liquid eye liner to define my lash line, and the Scandaleyes mascara in black to define my lashes. I also applied false eye lashes by Eylure To make my eyes pop out even more. 
From top - Deep Truth and Steamy by MAC.
Eyelure eye lashes and the blending brushes that I've used to create this look.
Tempo by Dior.
And here is the finished look. Sorry the quality of the pictures is really bad, I've taken them on my phone baring in mind it makes my skin look worse than it actually is haha!
Lots of love,

Recent Purchases

Hello Everyone,
There is no better feeling than finding amazing bargains on clothes, make-up, skin care and even books. I went round Charity shops in the local area and found great deals. I got 5 books for 30 pence each, coming up to £1.50 for the whole lot. I couldn't be happier. I am a massive book worm, and finding such great bargains on books which were originally on my to-buy list is a great feeling.
I am a huge Sex and the City fan, and Candace Bushnell is an amazing author. I own 6 of her books now, including the Lipstick Jungle.
I've read the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy and thought the books were quite good, even though I expected more of them. I've heard of Sylvia Day's Bared to You books and thought that I should give them a go, at least the first one anyway. The fact that I found this book for 30 pence is shocking. And amazing!!!
Nicholas Sparks is my all-time favourite author. I love all of his novels and film adaptations. I had to add The Lucky One to my collection.
I loved the film, so I reckon I will love the book even more.
This film is beyond beautiful.It made me cry so many times throughout the 2 hours haha. I reckon the book will make me just as emotional.
What's better than a storage box for £1? I got this from Poundworld and decided to store all my single eye shadows and eye shadow palettes.
4 storage baskets for £1 also from Poundworld. I'm going to use these to store my lipstick, each basket for different shades: reds, pinks, nudes and assorted colours.
Look how cute the baskets are. They are so tiny!
I adore Eylure eyelashes and when I saw these in Poundland I had to grab them! I only bought one pair to try them out and see if I like the style. I will definitely buy more pairs if I like these.
The flash on my camera is on the product so you can't see it very well, but I got the Nip+Fab concealer on sale at Tesco for only £2.49 reduced from £9.99. I'm very excited to try this product, especially as I ran out of my Rimmel concealer and had to buy a new one. I will review this product very soon.
I got this Nike gym top from a Charity shop for £2.99. I love the colour and cannot wait to wear it when I next go gym :)
I got this Next Camisole from another Charity shop for only £1.49!! I can't wait to pair it up with a pair of black or white jeans. This post just shows how good I am at finding great bargains! I must say that I'm always happier when I go shopping and spend a little money for a lot of clothes, rather than splash out for one item. I've learnt how to spend my money, at last!!!
If you have any questions then don't be afraid to drop a comment or email me :)
Lots of love,
