Casablanca

Monday, 26 August 2013

Hey guys, hope you are all enjoying your holidays... Thought I'd share some iPhone pics with you from my holiday so far.
I travelled to Marrakech yesterday and unfortunately I didn't capture any moments of the amazing time I had there.
I literally fell in love with this monkey (besides him trying to look down my top) he was super cute. ❤











Maybelline Baby Lips

Thursday, 22 August 2013

Hi guys, 
I've gone M.I.A on you again.. no biggie I'll post as much as I can while I'm out in Morocco (if you haven't read previously.. I'm out here for a month).

So first and foremost, I've been trying to get hold of this product for like ever and managed to grab it in a local superdrug at the counter. Yes the sales assistants were pushing sales on these.. luckily enough I was interested.. I had always been.
However, I must say I am left disappointed with the final finish of the product. Apart from its '├╝ber cool' package design in a really bright pink claiming to only be 'for the use of adults' I think will definitely catch the eye of some youngsters.

The review
The lipstick comes in a hot pink called 'pink punch'- smells like a peachy sort of lip balm. 
The product also claims to moisturise with a hint of colour - The moisturising part is correct but I find as the product has petroleum in the moisture is not long lasting. 
As for the colour when swatched there's a slight hint of a pink on the lips? I'd say this is just a fancy version of Vaseline. 
Out of 10 I'd give this product a 0, personally I would not use this again!

Smell Like Me

Thursday, 8 August 2013


Vanilla lace by Victoria's Secret - Very sweet, a slight hint of musk and cocoa mm
See by Chloe - A very elegant scent for the evening
Strawberry body butter - Sweet long lasting strawberry smell
Vera Wang Princess - Reminds me of when you walk in to a hollister store (oh & the lid is also a ring like a wedding band..how cool?)
I am simply infatuated with all of these scents! (Even the scent of the body shop body butter makes me melt!)
If you need some inspiration for daily duos that don't break the bank I suggest my staples at the moment, Victoria's secret vanilla lace (£11) sprayed on your body with the body butter (I bought on sale for £6) on your skin! Ahh heaven.
For casual outings on holiday shopping for example I'd definitely recommend Vera Wang princess and by night see by Chloe.
Quiet thick - but a little does go a long way.
What are your favourite scents? 


NOTD: Purple Haven

So I haven't painted my nails in about a month now (call the nail police) I know ladies it has been a while but honestly its because I've been so busy with de-cluttering my house and I do so much with my hands so there has been no point at all. 
However, I painted my nails yesterday and I must say I am LOVE LOVE LOVING them. 
I used two coats of the purple nail varnish, three coats of the sparkles and a finishing using the gel look top coat. 
Also just let you know as I've been drinking my smoothies every day my nails have grown so much which is crazy, I didn't expect this much growth... read my kiko review and see the length of my nails back then here!
My nails always break and chip so I am over the moon they are strong and do not chip as much! (hope I don't jinx this haha)
Read below for polish info.

Gladiator love - DIY how to make a pair of gladiator sandals (link)

Thursday, 1 August 2013


I am totally in love with the gladiator trend this season. My mum told me a few years back that these types of shoes will sweep the nation - I never believed her. 
I can confirm that she was telling the truth, below the black asos sandals have sold out many times where I have considered in shopping on ebay for a pair.
Honestly don't bother on there, a great pair can start low then finish at the RRP price, (seriously) and many ebay sellers have really cheap tacky ones or really expensive fake designer pairs for like £100 - urmmm no! 
New looks heeled version that I managed to grab for £13.00 was £27.99
(As of today they have sold out on New Looks site but can be purchased on asos for the full price. Keep an eye out as asos may put them on sale soon).
If you really like them Buy here! They have all the sizes 


Asos have these currently have these out of stock - quiet annoyed as you can see they have some slight damage to the left from the shoe making process.
I can confirm these are not the best of quality but they're just too hawt to send back haha!
Keep an eye out on asos as these are regularly out of stock.

Below will be a few sites where you can buy these kind of sandals from too - Enjoy!
