Nails of the week


 


 I was looking for a autumn shade this week when doing my nails. I think I picked a perfect shade. The colour I picked was miracle taupe by No7. I love the colour, I think browny shades always look good on nails. No7 nail varnishes aren't the cheapest at around five pound but you do get alot of product for your money. The finish on the nail varnish is a beautiful metallic affect which looks amazing. The nail varnish doesn't chip and lasts really well. The only problem is it takes ages to dry and you have to be quite good at painting nails as you can see the brush strokes so even application is a must! No7 are available at boots and they always have really good deals, such as 3 for 2. So its always worth keeping an eye out.

What colours do you like to wear in autumn? What do you think of No7 nail varnishes?

lots of love

jacket of the season!

 
 
Autumn has officially hit the UK and many of  us are venturing out to pick up a new jacket to help fight of the cold. Which sort of jacket should you get? Well military is a big look this season as is leather so You cant go wrong with the casual coat of the season. The safari jacket! which is a mix of the two with a khaki coat with leather sleeves.

 
A fave with the likes of Cheryl Cole and Jessica Alba. So many celebs are sporting the look you cant ignore this must have look! This look has been about for a while now but doesn't look to be disappearing so its time to invest, as the trend hots up and the temperature drops!

 
Louise Thompson from Made in Chelsea sported this look a while back and was wearing the Zara version but there a copies popping up all over. If you have been out and about shopping you would have seen how many there are out there.








One of my fave ever bloggers has also done a post on safari jackets have a look here LolaRose!


I got mine from Primark and I love it! Have you invested in a new jacket? What do you think of the trend? will you be buying one?

Lynx Attract for women


Lynx - women body spray - lynx attract - review


I dont really know why I was so excited to try this? but I was. I think its because I love to try any new to the market! Lynx have been around for yonks but this is the first body spray for women.

Lynx say Lynx Attract For Him and For Her are packed with such irresistible scents that men and women throughout the UK will not be able to keep their hands off each other, creating chaos in everyday life. Well suposedly lol! I have worn it out and no man has grabbed me yet, thankfully! lol Lynx Attract For Her body spray is made to perfectly complement the male scent which I have carefully avoided as I DONT WANT TO START TOUCHING RANDOM MEN LOL!

A vibrant colourful mixture of succulent fruit creates an enticing fusion while floral notes leave a feminine accord. Its a fruity, floral and woody fragrance. Which is a really nice smell but not anything new. It reminds me of an Impulse body spray (don't know which one, but a nice one). It really does work well as a deodorant probably due to the fact that Lynx have been covering up the sweaty smell of teenage boys for years. lol! Unlike the male Lynx which can be continue to be overpowering after a little while the woman's is light, yet strong enough to cover any odours. The scent lasts allday and doesn't disappear like normal women's body sprays! All in all I'm impressed and smelling fresh! Maybe Lynx might want to rethink this being a limited edition and start selling more body spray for us girls!


Have you tired it? Which body sprays do you love?

lots of love

Sleep-in Rollers



Sleep Rollers - velcro rollers - big hair - volume - review - results


I'm sure you all know by now I love big hair. Nothing makes me happier than shiny bouncy hair.  I'm often found with my rollers in, or quickly tonging my hair. Or sitting with my heated curlers secured to my head. Yet alas effortless big bouncy looks often take forever to achieve, plus all the heat doesn't help your hair stay beautiful and healthy. Like most of us I'm sure you own a pair a Velcro rollers but which of course add no heat so are a much kinder way to give body to your locks. However washing, drying and applying your rollers is so much of a faff, can any of us really be bothered to do this every morning. I'm sure loads of you like me have slept in your rollers, your hair might be beautiful in the morning but you never get a good nights sleep as they are so uncomfy they annoy you all night !

So when I found sleep rollers, I knew I had to have them. They don't require heat, so no heat damage! Plus they actually are quite comfy to sleep in! Heavenly what more could you want! I'm not going to lie and say you will get the best sleep ever but once I got used to them I had a good nights kip. They appear to get softer and easier to sleep in after a few uses.They are Velcro rollers with a sponge inside, so they flatten when you lay on them!  Sleep Rollers give you beautiful body and I loved the results especially because it was so easy to achieve!

I bought mine from sallys but the sleep roller phenomenon is spreading fast so the rollers are now available in many different places, aswell as online!


Have you tired them? Do you like big and bouncy hair?
Let me know your thoughts,

Lots of Love,

Mua nail polish - purple nails - review - purple nail art

I Love so many of the MUA products I have tried and I thought it was about time I tried their nail varnishes! I bought a beautiful purple colour which IS slightly different from the many purple colours I already own! Lol! The shade is called frozen yoghurt and I am really impressed with MUA yet again! The pot is small but at £1.00 I don't think you can moan especially as the nail varnishes is of a high quality. It hasn't chipped in the 2 days I have been wearing it, It doesn't take loads of coats to make it opague and gives a really professional finish.

I used an old purple glitter varnish on the tips. I don't actually have a clue how old it is lol! I cant really divulge any more about it as I'm not sure where I bought it and it is so old it doesn't have much of the label left lol. It does say sleek on it but I'm not sure if its the same sleek that you can buy in Superdrug now!

What MUA shades shall do you recommend? What are you wearing on your nails this week?

MUA lipstick no14

MUA - Lipstick - nude - swatch - review

I'm a massive fan of lipsticks they can change a boring outfit an up to date look. Or even help you go from a day look to night look with just a sweep of a stick. I'm always adding to my make up collection. MUA are a brand I have talked about before but I am blown away at the choice of lip colours, they have one to suit everyone. Also they have all the latest colours, so are a brilliant way to try the current trends.

MUA - Lipstick - nude - swatch - review

 
I absolutely love the nude lip look and I have tried so many different lipsticks but I am honestly obsessed with my MUA nude shade 14. It is my go to lipstick at the min. It cost one pound! the lipstick doesn't last a long as other brands but the lipstick now goes everywhere with me for any touch ups. The shade is a beautiful nude that does make you look like you have no lips which I find   some nudes do.


Do you own any MUA lipsticks? What MUA shade do you love?

Lots of Love
