Sleek Lethal Length Mascara

One coat:

Two coats:

First off, ignore the eyebrows I'm currently growing them out.

This is my first buy of sleek product, I will definitely need to explore their make up a bit more. I was really happy with the quality literally sleek and elegant, I love the whole square thing going on. 

I found the formula a bit rich and a little hard to apply without it clumping together but that may have been me doing it all in a hurry so will see if next time I use it its different.

I think for a high street brand its pretty good but it can't beat my Benifit They're real. 
I think next time I'm browsing make up I'll have a good look at sleek. 

Thank you for reading lovelys.

Make up storage Clear out

I've been meaning to do this for a while so.....why not blog about it?

As you can see I don't own a lot of makeup to be honest. I've had this trunk for a while and its never been full. I clearly concentrate on my eyes as I have lots of eye product, and not enough lip product!

I just emptied all the contents and sorted through it all, separating it into piles then taking anything out of date or grubby out and into the bin, a lot of the old stuff that came with the trunk I threw away. Then neatly put everything back in an orderly mess. Its important to clear out your make up every 12 months of so as this is usually how long they keep, and you don't want to be using make up that's not good anymore.

Feel free to ask any questions.

What is sleep anyway?

So its a quarter to two in the morning and I can't sleep, I've tried really hard to fall asleep. Dam you insomnia!
And I was thinking I haven't posted in a while, but I've just been working [in this ridiculous but nice heat we've been having] and I just haven't had the time or really made time to sit down and write anything. I have however got a few beauty products I wanted to review as well as a book [warning I know I'm going to be rubbish at it]  but better to give it a try then not try at all right?

So hopefully well not hopefully, I will definitely be making more time to write some posts.

Peace out lovelys

Summer co-ords

Summer co-ords

Palm tree print

With summer in full swing and tropical print taking over the high street this season. Seriously it’s everywhere, skirts, dresses, trousers and co-ords. This is my first purchase(s) into the trend, I'm not really one for crazy colours so I went monochrome palm tree just to be safe. The top is from a depop seller (but I know it’s from Primark) and the shorts are from Fashion Union and they are a gorgeous silky materiel kept me nice and cool perfect for the summer. It’s not something I would usually wear but I plan to come out of my comfort zone this summer!  

Yes my garden is a mess!

Lazy Sunday

Just another lazy Sunday. I had no plans, just bacon, tea and sun it really was a lazy little day. I woke up at 11, had my bacon roll and tea then when into town to run some errands, visited Matthew's grandparents, then to pub to watch the world cup final. I love those days where you have no plans to weight you down but still have things to do.

Mind the gap, Victoria and Ted baker body spray

Mind the gap, Victoria.

It's so weird that the first thing I'm attracted too when browsing the Rimmel London nail polish's is my favorite color and has my name in the products name. I wasn't intending to buy anything really just looking as you do and instantly pick this colour up and had to buy it and I love it so much. I have a thing about blue, every summer its my favorite colour. Its in their 60 seconds range and obviously its called Mind the gap, Victoria. Its says that you only need one coat but I definitely needed two but non the less such a gorgeous colour and Its staying in my favorites.

Ted baker Body spray.

Again I wasn't intending to buy anything but I just can't help myself sometimes, my friend was actually looking at them as well and so I went for it. Its was only after I tried to find it online that I found out that this one is called Butterfly wings and it has bergamot and red fruit in it and smells amazing, they also do a Treasured Orchid and Origami. Its bag size like a impulse spay so you can carry it in your bag and give it a spritz when you need a freshen up and leaves you smelling gorgeous.

D.I.Y denim cutoff tutorial.

D.I.Y Denim cutoffs.

First of all.
You will need

  • A pair of jeans you want to cutoff
  • A measuring tape
  • Tailors or white chalk
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread(Optional)

First turn your jeans inside out, then measure three or four inches (depending on how short you want your cutoffs) from the rise ( the inner leg)

mark with your chalk.

On one leg you then draw a curved dotted line to the other side of the leg, this is so it's all neat.
Carefully cut along your dotted line with sharp scissors making sure to cut as smooth as possible to avoid zigzags in your cutoff.

Now fold your jeans in half one leg on top of the other, with the chalk trace your cut leg onto the other with a dotted line so they will be the same length, cut along the dotted line again carefully to avoid zigzags.

Turn your jeans outside in and try on to make sure that you like the length.
If you want a frayed look simply put at the exposed threads at the end of your new cutoffs.

As an added measure I decided to stitch the seams of my new cutoffs to strengthen them and to stop them coming lose. I also decided to give a distressed look.
And finally wash them and enjoy.

What I've learnt form this D.I.Y 

Don't use jeans with elastic in the material, the label usually tells you whether or not it will. tip here use real denim 
Take your time and don't rush you'll only mess it up and end up with them being too short.
Make sure the scissors your using are sharp enough.

Do hope you enjoyed this D.I.Y tutorial.

A taste of America

A taste of America.

Five guys.

I'm sure you guys have heard of Five guys burger and fries. I'd heard about it from Lily Melrose and wanted to go for ages but didn't think going all the way to London Covent garden just to have a burger was worth it, how wrong I was. But then I find out that one is opening in Uxbridge!  SO happy :)

Five guys are an America burger bar, so much better then McDonald's. A little bit pricey just a cheeseburger on its own is eight pounds, so maybe as a payday treat or just get a little burger it’s a little bit cheaper. They also do hot dogs and sandwiches. So I met up with my friend for lunch and went there, at first it was crazy loud and a bit intimidating, but the atmosphere was amazing and the retro music set a real American feel.

I will definitely be visiting five guys again in the future.

Baby we need some time alone.

                           We need to let it breath

So I'm sure that you guys haven't noticed (I know you have, dw) that I haven't posted in a good while, yeah sorry about that! I'm going to fill you in real quick.

So rewind back to the 20th of February where I posted This my supposedly first post in my first blog series, I had a good few ideas planned out and even when I was going to schedule them, but as always my plans changes and I knew I wasn't going to be able to finish any of them off.
And the obvious reason my plans changed is I started a new job. (yey me!) One that's not temporary and one that is non sociable hours. So time for writing blog posts decreased dramatically! As working late hours has a way of draining all of your energy and time!

But I will carry on blogging, you'll be pleased to know I'm sure?
Till next time. :)

That rough patch

Man! I haven't posted in a while I do apologise lovelys. I've been rather busy job hunting which is going pretty bad atm, like I'm sure people that are not at school, collage or uni or even those who are, that are hunting would know far to well. But apart from that I've just not had time nor motivation too write!
It's rather annoying I would love to have at least two or three post lined up every week for you guys.

I've had suggestions to write about my job hunting experience but I'm sure most people already know how bad it is out there and tbh I want to keep my blog about things I like and enjoy and I certainly don't enjoy job hunting! :)

I really hope I get time to sit down  this week and finish off some posts I have in draft.

Thanks for hanging on :)

Start each day with a grateful heart

First off I want to apologies for the week without a single post, I've had to deal with some sad and personal news.

I don't want this to be to much information I wanted to keep my blog fun, so I won't go into too much details.

Its not easy losing anyone you know, and when it's family that again and again you didn't take the opportunity to spend time with you feel overcome with regret.

Remember this* post where I wrote about my  new years resolutions and one of those was to spend more time with family and another was to stop stressing and it seems like in the first four weeks of 2014 I've failed.

Not only  that I found out that my nanny passed away but the very same day I had a really positive interview with an employer that went so dam well and I walked away feeling really confident about the outcome, but later that day my dad came home to tell us the bad news.

So I won't be posting again this week but will carry on the next which will be February.
I don't like funerals very much as I'm sure not many people do.

Start each day with a grateful heart <3

See you in a weeks time

Beauty haul #When you go out for a few bits, end up buying a whole bag full?

Here we are again doing a haul this time only beauty products, a bit different from last time here where I did a random bunch of stuff. :)

As you can tell by the title of this haul, I only went into boots for one or two things and ended up with a few more. In my defence I have been saving up points on my boots card so decided to just go for it. I only went boots luckily as I was in a buy what you like mood, which is not good for the bank account!

 Admittedly the bag is not that big, also I don't know why I decided to take a picture of the bag but hay. :)

This is what I originally went in boots for, just general essentials like shower gel and tooth paste, I then remembered other bits I needed to grab. I find that I stick to a product that I like for months on end then find a product that I want to try out, don't know if that's a good or bad thing? The Herbal essences I have only really just discovered and I love what its doing to my hair, and recently I brought the beautiful ends conditioner and yeah it does leave my dry ends feeling good about themselves.
Products: Imperial leather Limited editions Bewitching shower cream, Oral-B pro-expert Whitening tooth paste, Herbal Essences Beautiful ends conditioner, Oral-B tooth brush, Femfresh Intimate hygiene Freshness wipes and 4 pack Quattro replacement blades.

Boots own product? Nothing wrong with that right? basically I'm a hairy persons and my shadow is getting really bad because I left it far too long! For those of you who may not know what shadow is its just lady moustache. I was using veet before but couldn't find it in boots or the Superdrugs store so this will do. :)
Soap&Glory heel Genius Foot cream. This is actually my second bottle I love it so much, you apply it before bed and wear a pair of cotton socks and in the morning your feet a) smells so good and b) feels amazing like you've just stepped out of a spa.
Now these are products I'm excited to use! 

Loreal Paris Gentle eye make-up remover, now if you remember one of my first blog posts, you will remember that I don't wear make-up very often and when I do its usually because I'm going out for the night ( you can read it here The make-up world ) with this I'm not wearing the eye make-up for a long period of time and getting it off is always a struggle and most often I just use facial wipes. I used my mums Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover as I heard and saw all the good reviews it had and obviously knew how much it was, but also heard that the Loreal make-up remover was a "dupe" for it, So I'm going to try it and make a commitment to wear some eye make-up even if its just to go out shopping.
And finally the last product today is the nails inc. London nail buffer. I was quite surprised to see nails inc. London products in boots, I didn't really think it was a well known brand and as you can see the only label on the packaging was the back and on the actual buffer its self  (If you didn't know the brand or how big it is you wouldn't look twice). I actually don't own a lot of nails inc. products, two to be precise this and a nail polish I got free with glamour mag. I would love to be able to afford to buy all there nail polishes but I can't see that happening. So I can't wait to use this next time I do my nails. :) Maybe I'll do a review?


That's all guys do feel free to ask any questions.
