My Two little Hair Miracles

Hello Lovlies!

In the summer i decided to get some highlights for the first time. I heard a lot of people telling me that as soon as you get highlights you need to look after your hair. So after a summer of heat from the sun, curling irons, highlight and just a lot of damage i decided to finally invest in some conditioning hair treatments and I've fallen in love with them already!!




A lot of friends recommend to me the Sheer Blonde collection from John Frieda. I must say i was impressed from using the shampoo, conditioner and a hair treatment my hair is much more easier to handle when its wet - tangles less - its softer, shiny and less fizzy. The hair treatment is amazing! Its a gorgeous think deep conditioner, which you leave in for 15 minutes once a week. After i use it my hair feel like velvet its so soft to touch and i can defiantly tell when i stop using it! This is priced at £5.99.







My last little hair miracle is the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance. This is a 'lightweight conditioning spray, which is amazing for weak and distressed hair' and it really is! I love spraying this on my hair after i blow dry it just to calm down any frizziness that may have accrued before styling. I also love to spray this just though my ends the day after I've washed it. This just keeps my hair feel soft up to when i wash it and shiny! it is very very lightweight on the hair like it claims and i absolute love this and wished id found it earlier!! This is priced at £4.99 which is even better!!





















I would recommend these two products to anyone who has dry,coloured, damaged hair or if you just want softer fizz free hair. You can find both products at Boot or Super drug.

I hope you enjoyed this little post! Comment below what your little hair miracles are, id love to know and try out some new products! I hope you are having a lovely day or evening!

Hello, 

A few days ago i poped into Ikea, for anyone that doesn't know Ikea is a massive furniture and house decor things! Just to have a look and to get a few things - candles, fairylights.

Anyway, i needed a new make up brush stand and i couldnt find anything anywhere, untill we were in the garden section. I saw this pink plant pot and it was perfect! 

When i got home i tried it out, and its lovely! Im really pleased i decided to use a plant pot! It fits all my bushes in nicely aswell there is room for my collecetion to grow!

My Morning Routine!


I used to be the type of girl whose morning or evenings routine would just be using a make up wipe. After finding out from friends and chatting with people I finally found out how bad make up wipes are for your skin!!

So a couple of months ago I made in my mission to get some facial products and get into a really good skin routine! To be honest I have seen a different in my skin, I do love all the products that I’m using!

I start of using my Good Things Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser; this is the most gorgeous smelly, gorgeous texture on your skin and leaves your skin feeling so soft and lovely! It also has pomegranates in it, which makes its very highly scented!

After this I then apply the Skin Perfection Radiance Revealing Gentle Exfoliator, This is a brilliant cheap exfoliator, and does the job! This product does also have a fragrant of orange so once again if you’re not into scented facial products then it may not be for you!


I finish of with my Good Things Bright Eyes Eye Cream; this is a lovely cream and blends in straightaway and my Nivea Rich Moisturising Day Cream. I have really dry skin and these to products have really helped to moisture and keep my skin from having dry patches.


I hope you have enjoyed my little post and are having a lovely day!

Much Love

A Fresh New Start...

For much of us, September is where we start something new! For me that would be starting my final year of beauty! (Cant believe this time next year i will be working full time - scary) However i have also decided to re-think the last year and move forward with some more postive actions and thoughts, which i will share with you :)

Some of these little positive actions are just a bit of fun and some have deeper meanings:


  1. To put as much time into love ones - whether this is family, friends or boyfriend - as before you know it you will be moving away from love ones and the time you get with them now may not be there in a year, two years to come! 
  2. To turn something negative into something positive - ive been really bad in the last year with always thinking about the negative things and never seeing the bigger picture, but i will try to not also jump to the negative all the time! 
  3. To make the most out of my final year of college - has much as it freaks me out big time, i do really want to do well in life and college is a great place to start!! 
  4. Having some 'me' time - this might sound horrible but i dont mean it how its reads! Im always being told i put friends first, always caring for them etc so im going to try and have one pamper evening each week! 
  5. Stick to staying healthy! - ive really got into being healthy, exercising etc and i really hope i can stick to it! Fingers crossed! 
There are my five little positive actions im going to try and move forward with into septmeber! If you have any id love to know so leave a comment below! 

I hole you enjoyed this post and are having a lovely day or evening!! 

Much love

Rose libertine Nail Colour


First of all I’d like to say a massive sorry for the lack of posts lately! I was on holiday for a week and had other personal things going on! But I’m going to try and upload a post once a week!!

I am a very big nail polish junkie, so I very rarely have a nail polish on for more then about a couple of day!

I was going through my collection for a summer coral pretty colour and rediscovered so many loved nail polishes, which was another big bonus! However one of the colours I rediscovered was call Rose Libertine. I feel in love with it with just the name!


The colour is a gorgeous pastels coral pink, a great summer colour! I’ve been wearing this colour on my nails for about 2 weeks and I’ve only had to re-do it once, which is another big bonus!





I’m not sure whether this colour is still available but I’m sure it is! This is a greats summer colour!

Hope you are all having a good day and enjoyed this little Nail Polish post!

Much Love

A Little Haul!

Hello!!

Over the last couple of days i've been doing some holiday shopping, I didn't really need much but i thought i would share with you what I brought! There are a couple of clothing ideas and some skin care so lets get on with it! 

I went into Primark first and i was actually surprised with how little i brought (think it was just too hot) However i did pick up this tribal kinda print that has a neon blue though it! I've seen this skirt quite alot in Youtubers videos and i just feel in love with it! It will be perfect for a casual day or even a dresser night out! Love it! 





My other and last but in Primark was this gorgeous dungees dress, I'm not a fan of the typical dungees look but these i just fell in love with! I love the fact they are still really girly and cute! 




To be honest i was a little disappointed with the chose of clothing in my Primark! 


I have been really into skincare at the moment. After watching a couple of Youtube videos i thought i would try the new L'oreal Skin Perfection range.
I needed a new make up remover so i thought i would try the L'oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution as this claims to remove makeup with one wipe, to tones and to unclog pores (this seems to just be a cheaper and more avaliable version of the famous Biodemer) and so far i love it!! 




Another product i thought i would try out from the range is the radiance Revealing Gentle Exfoliator! and the smell of this is amazing and it does the job!! 


The last little product that i picked up I'm my mini haul was the Nivea Rich Moisturising Day Cream, and the reason to why i brought this was as simple as i had ran out of my normal moisturiser and thought i would try something new! 



I hope you enjoyed my little mini haul and comment below if you like these sort of thing! Or any ideas for posts! Hope you are all having a wonderful day!!

Much Love

Little Outfit of The Day

Hello!!

The weather in England has been lovely and hot for the last couple weeks, however it has now got really muggy, thunder storms and everything so I thought I'd share my outfit for today!

I love this neon orange crop top it's more of a longer crop top then others available. I found crop top look gorgeous with anything that is high waisted. Today I paired it with some light denim hight waisted jeans. These jeans are more like jeggings, so are perfect during the summer months in England when it's not warm enough to get your legs out! But are still really structured. I love them! 

(Please excuse all the mess in the background)  



Hope you enjoyed this little post, and you are having a lovely summer!!

Much love

When You Just Feel A Bit Down....

Hello!

I woke you this morning feeling a bit crappy and sorry for myself ! So like a typical girl i stayed in bed until about 12! Then i realised something: me moping around in bed all day isn't going to do me any good! So i thought I'm actually going do something with my Saturday! So
i got up sorted myself out, painted my nails ( rose libertine - Rimmel) and did my make up!

The point to this little blog is that whenever your feeling down or upset about something, just try and take the positive out of the situation! you don't want to waste a day of your life when you only live once. Whether its what i did and treat yourself or hanging out with friends or a partner!

It will make you feel better straight away and remember don't let others ruin your mood! You are wonderful in your own way so don't let anyone say different!!

The quote below is on of my favourites and it my background on my phone! it really cheers me up when i read and speaks the truth to me!






If you like this blog let me know below and if you would like me to do some more blogs on feeling down,insecurities then just comment below!

Hope you are all having a lovely day!

Much Love

The Zoooo....

Hello!!

Being a little girl i would always love going to zoo. Seeing all the animals would always amaze me and seeing the little baby animals that were so cute!!! I would always ask mum to take me at every chance and as i got older i lost the "wow' in going however today i went with my family!

As it was the most amazing thing ever! I thought i would share my little day with you and show some pictures of my day! (i took a lot of photos of elephants - my new favourite- so i say sorry for that!)










We were just wondering around taking photos (some are above) my little brother shouted 'babies babies' and like always we weren't listening until i spotted what he was shouting about and there were these most cutest little baby red river hog! I have never seen such cute animals in my life. Pictures are below of them!!




So after this we wondered over to see the elephant show and this is where i feel in love with them! I have never found an animal so cute and just lovely - even that does sound strange! The pictures below are of the little show they did! 








I hope you have enjoyed my little post about my day trip! if you want more of these kinda post then leave me a comment below!!

Hope you are all having a lovely day!

June Monthly Favourite

Hello,

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, had some personal stuff to deal with however i am back with a Monthly Favourite!

The most exciting and favourite thing this month was my birthday! Turning 18! However i do have other beauty and random ones to share with you!

Firstly i have be loving the Revlon Foundation, I'm a big fave of finding really good high street make up and this is just amazing. it lasts all day on the face and does give you a more full coverage look so i mostly where this foundation when I'm going out however it is a lovely day foundation!



Another of my favourites and one that is always being raved about in the beauty world is the Collection Lasting Perfecting (i thinks its called that..) this is amazing and does what it says! Another big recommendation for a good high street concealer!


One of my other much loved product is the Rimmel Stay Matt powder. It really does what it says! even though i have dry skin it doesn't dry my skin out or look cake, it just hold my foundation on all day and i love that! Plus its really cheap too!


I got this palette about a year ago and it is my favourite by far! A lot of beauty girls have raved about this and i must say its on i always go to whether its for filling in my brows or doing a natural day look. You can really do anything with his pallet and that's why once again I've spend the whole month using it. The range of colours are really good and they last all day with or without an eye primer.



Some random favourites of this month have been:

  • My iPad Mini - Which i got for my birthday and didn't realise how small it really was however its just amazing for any girls who are out and about a lot and need everything to be in one place. Even though i do have my phone i just find it easy to read books watch videos alot better!
  • Demi Lovato new Album - This had been in my cars for weeks just replaying over and over again. Enough said! 
  • Prezzo - This is one of my most loved places to eat! The food is always amazing and i would highly recommend it!
Thank you for reading my little monthly favourites! Comment below if you like these and want to see more or ideas of other things i could write about! 
Hope your all having a lovely day!

Much Love
