Glamour and Benefit have done it again....!!!

(sorry for the crappy iphone picture - but I wanted to let you guys know fast!)

Hi readers...anyone still here??

Still not quite finished uni yet so blogging is still taking a back seat but I just wanted to post a quick one telling you guys about Glamour magazine's give away this month!!

Yes they have done it again - they are giving away benefit goodies again! This time they are giving away three of the cheek/lips stains - bene-tint, posie-tint and high beam (all sample sizes)!!

I've always wanted to try out benefits tints so I wasn't going to let this opportunity pass by and ran (well I drove) to the nearest co-op and picked up three copies of Glamour to get all samples - and yes the guy on the till gave me that funny look and probably thought I was mad. Lets face it I could of explained but he wouldn't of understood! But £6 for £28 worth of benefit goodies I don't care what he thought!!
Although my advice is go and get them fast as every time Glamour does a benefit giveaway they sell out fast!
What are you waiting for.....!!

Sorry for the quick post and the lack of blogging lately but my last exam is on the 15th June so I'll be back soon!

Hope everyone is does well and having a lovely week

I'm back!!! :)

(Sorry for the crappy iPhone photo and the fact my eyes look weird. I’m still getting used to taking picture on my phone!)

Hi everyone!!

Sorry I’ve been M.I.A!! I’ve been finishing my university dissertation over the last few month, its been the biggest priority in my life for sooo long now, but I will be handing in my finished project on the blogging will resume back to normal after that! Which i’m really happy about because I’ve got lots of ideas and new pieces I want to blog about!

Hope everyone is happy and well! Did everyone watch the royal wedding? Kate looked beautiful didn’t she? I celebrated by having a tea party round a friend’s house and drinking coffee (because I don’t like tea lol!) from my royal wedding mug! (hence the weird photo above!)

Hopefully I still have some readers left after my long absence! Look forward to all the new posts coming soon!

Hope everyone has a lovely long weekend (again!) :)

17's Lasting Fix Nail Polish - Woo Me and Forever

(Woo me)

On a recent trip into boots I spied 17’s new range of nail polish colours from their Spring Vintage Love Limited Edition collection! I picked up two of the colours Woo Me – a light lilac colour and Forever – nude/caramel colour!
I absolute love these colours as they are perfect for the spring and would really like to try the other colours from the collection! The only thing putting me off however is the consistency of the polish. I found it quite difficult to apply and had to apply 2-3 coats to get the finished look as the first coat was streaky! Although for the price (£2.99) you get what you pay for, and for beautiful colours I may put up with the quality of the polish!
At moment Boots are offering 3 for 2 on all 17 cosmetics, so I think I might pick up three more which will give a gorgeous range of colours to wear for spring and summer!
Have you tried anything from the 17’s Spring Vintage Love collection? What would you recommend?
Hope you are having a lovely week! I’m off to do lots of university work, wish me luck!

Wish List

I've been looking at loads of Sigma Brushes reviews and trying to make my mind up on whether I should buy them! I really hate the fact you can only purchase them online because I like to have a feel for brushes before I buy, and its a lot of money to waste if I don't like them!
I have a few MAC brushes and I really like them but as a poor student I really can't afford to buy all the brushes I would like, so I would hope Sigma was a cheaper, yet still good quality alternative!

I'll let you know I take the leap of faith and buy them. Have you tried Sigma Brushes? What did you think?

Hope you have had a good weekend

NOTD - Sephora by OPI - On Stage

 (Wearing only one coat of polish)

One of the nail polishes I picked up in New York - On Stage by Sephora by OPI

I was desperate for the colour Metro Chick, but they had sold out :( so I picked up this little beauty!

I love the colour, its a gorgeous dirty purple colour which is perfect for wearing in the day and I've had a few compliments on it too :)

Hope your having a lovely Saturday
