Nominations - Liebster Awards 2013

Hello beautiful people!

So last Sunday I thought I should probably have a look on my blog and see if anything interesting was happening, and I stumbled across some lovely comments on my latest post that really made me smile. One was from a wonderful girl called Charlotte, [also know as tastingtheworldwithme.blogspot.co.uk] who has nominated me for a Liebster award! I honestly couldn't be more grateful! After thinking that no one other than my family read my blog, it was such a surprise to find out that other people with beautiful blogs themselves do too! Make sure you check her out!

So basically this award is for people who have less that 200 followers, to help promote their blogs and gain more readers!


So the bloggers that have been nominated have to:

List 11 random facts about themselves
Answer the 11 questions written by the blogger who nominated them
Find 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and ask them 11 questions of your own

The Great & The Gorgeous.

Good Evening Beauties!

So last Thursday I popped into Boots and picked up an absolute bargain and just had to share it with you all!


This beautiful The Great & The Gorgeous makeup kit from Ted Baker, a part of the Boots christmas gifts range. Originally priced at £40 I knew that I couldn't pay full price for something that may not be good quality, despite the large amount of products! The kit includes:

2 Nail varnishes
Pink eye cream
Pink glitter eyeliner
2 Lip crayons in Pink and Plum
A set of eyelashes
Black eyeliner pen
4 Pink handled makeup brushes
2 Illuminator creams in Pink & Gold
A bronzing compact

Although it would be a good offer for £40, I still wasn't ready to part with that amount of money. Then, earlier last week I just happened to be walking past Boots (unfortunately it was closed) and a large poster in the window caught my eye, offering this set for just £19!! Now that is an offer I couldn't refuse! I have to say that if you are considering buying this (even though it is now full price again) I most definitely would! Its beautiful and actually extremely good quality! I don't know why I ever doubted that from Ted anyway! Here are close ups of the products:







This set can be bought online or in store!

Little bit of Lush.

Good Morning Lovelies,

So the other day I wanted a little pick me up, after being off dance for a week due to my silly right knee giving in, so I popped into Lush and picked up a few little bits.


Recently I've become a bit of a fan of Lushes skincare range, and last time I was in there I was recommended this face mask, Ayesha




It's quite a thick mask, more like a mud mask and smells like asparagus. I haven't yet had a chance to test it out but I can't wait!


Next up I was recommended this lovely bath bomb by the lovely shop assistant, as she said it was one of her favourite! It's called Twilight and smells simply amazing! So excited to try it out :)


She also told me to try this little beauty! It's a luxury bath melt called Ceridwen's Cauldron, it's a slow melting one allowing you to enjoy your bath fully and leaving you with a little bag of oats and herbs to gently exfoliate with. It sounds truly amazing...

So when I was at the till paying for my treasures, the lovely woman serving me questioned if I had ever used henna, as I am currently growing out my old red hair I have a lot of copper colours running through it. When I explained that I hadn't and haven't dyed my hair for over a year now due to the chemicals destroying my fine, easily broken hair. So the woman gave me 3 free samples to try, winner!


So first up I got a sample of the Caca Rouge hair colour, which I think I may tint the tips of my hair with when I get a chance.


Next up they gave me a sample of Roots, a deep conditioning treatment for fine, thin hair (perfect for me!)

They also gave me a sample of their Fair Trade Honey Shampoo, which smells of roses and is supposed to completely nourish my hair and make it beautiful :)

I have to say that I am VERY excited (as usual) to try out all these bits that I've picked up, especially the samples to see if I would buy the full size product. I have to say that Lush will never fail to amaze me, all the staff are so friendly and helpful when it comes to searching for products best suited for you. They are wonderful, and so is everything they sell!

What are your favourite Lush products?
