Few Cheeky Bits From Primark ...........

Happy weekend everyone I am sorry for lack of blog posts I have been so poorly ggrrrr hate this time of year but hey ho I'm on the mend now so I am having a major catch up.
I popped into Primark to pick up a few bits for my weekend in London woohoo I no right who doesn't love going to London.
While I was there of course I just had pop to the make up section and I have to say in our Primark the make up part is tiny and they don't update it very often so tend to like going to the Corby Primark.
All I did find was ....dun dun darrrr yes its rose gold tweezers which are so sharp and amazing and they match my hairbrush set ........always a bonus lol.
One of the main reason I went into Primark was to have a look for some leather jeans. I have purchased the leggings but they were not what I was looking for.
I am so pleased I found these they are perfect and in a size 10 to woohoo check me lol, they have a coated finished but not to shiny which is perfect as I wanted the leather look not actual leather....if that makes sense.
They are slim fitting so rolled up with either a sleek pair of heels white tee and biker jacket or even look awesome with pumps cons or trainers either Nike Air Max or Adidas Superstars both will look fab. I also going to do a look book on how I'd style these and some other statement pieces I've purchased lately.
Just like these beauties and for £5.00 you can not go wrong, they do have the black ones with white soles and also a leopard print which I have to say I am debating.
They are so comfy, there's nothing I hate more than buying a pair of pumps I really like wearing them once getting a blister then having to wait for the blister to heal before wearing them again lol pet peeve bloody blisters.
As you can see from the photo these are white snake skin effect with a brush of silver, I so happy with these and no I am going to get lots of wear out of them I highly recommend.
Now these were defiantly the buy of the day, lovely faux suede black ankle boots with tassels. Now I am not a big fan of tassels nor fluffy nor them awful tops with holes on the shoulder.
However these are very delicate as in they don't have a huge bulk of tassels or swing around like your John Wayne when you walk haha, they were also in the sale so that swayed me even more £5 for a pair of ankle boots what a flipping bargain, that's why I love Primark.
I hope you liked my haul just a few bits to brighten my day lol.
So until next Take Care my lovelies

I Love Payday ...........Drugstore Makeup Haul

So Wednesday I got all wrapped up ready for a mad dash to Queensgate to get some bits I wanted for my first YouTube video I'm doing on Friday.
I dropped the munchkins in to school and headed straight in to town.
Firstly I went in to Superdrug to purchased the new Collection make up I wanted to do a first impressions on.
Firstly I wanted to go and purchased some new bits brought out by  Collection as they have a new range of primers out so I decided on the Mattifying Pore Minimiser and the Reviving & Anti~Fatigue Illuminating Primer in warm apricot.
I also wanted to try the Ultimate Fix solid 3in1 foundation concealer and powder, it does have an spf15 in and is very creamy goes on very smooth and covers nicely to I did still have to put powder over the top but mainly because I have quite oily skin, so if you have dry skin this will be good for you.
then lastly I also got the large Bronze Glow Ultimate unfortunately this is a bit light for me but is still a good bronzer so if you like being bronzed I'd go for a deeper shade.
I also went through every makeup counter in Superdrug searching for the perfect Kylie Jenner deep brown lipstick and lip liner.
I found two one from MUA in the Shade 11 which I found to be a great dupe for Mac's famous Velvet teddy Lippy so defiantly keep an eye out for that as its only £1 I mean come on that's just music to my ears a pound a kid you not a bloody pound its also has the small lip gloss at the bottom which of course is just perfect for that luscious lip colour.
but then I found a Kate Moss addition by Rimmel in the shade no.48 and wow its stunning just what I was looking and it goes perfect with the Barry M lip liner.

Yes yes I did lol I cant go in Superdrug without visiting my favourite makeup counter Make Up Revolution but I was disappointed as our counter isn't very big and I seem to have everything on there lol, but I have wanted the Affirmation Eye shadow Palette and I'm so glad I did.
the makeup options you could have with this palette is just ohh so many

As it was 2 for £10 on all Rimmel products I also got the scandal eyes 24 hour in jumbo eyeliner pen.
Seriously now if you struggle to do the perfect winged liner or just don't have a lot of time to faff about this is the answer it amazing.
So hope you enjoyed this post please tell me your favourite brown Lippi's
Take Care my Lovelies

Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara Review

I've been watching a few You Tubers and was hearing so much good stuff about this mascara so obviously I had to buy it and give it ago.
And wow I'm so glad I did, it is amazing I used two applications and my lashes look great so full and long. 
The brush has cupped shaped bristles that give the thick push up dramatic lash effect. 
It's an intense black that makes your lashes look thick voluminous and full.
This is just two applications no fake lashes just my own, I have to say this has to be the best mascara Maybelline have brought out yet and I have a lot of mascara's this one will definitely give you the dramatic fake lash effect I would definitely recommend.

If you are going to purchase this product it is on offer in all Maybelline products are buy one get one half price I will put link in as soon as the website is back up so until then .......
take care my lovelies any questions please leave a comment

The Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation Review

I am so in love with the Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation I brought mine in the shade Pale Almond. The coverage is amazing it doesn't feel heavy on the skin but gives great long wearing coverage im so happy with it I will defiantly be using it on the long days I need a good make up look to last.
The consistency isn't thick works perfect with a brush or beauty blender and I was having to look twice to make sure I had blended it because it went on so smoothly. I can not big this foundation up enough if you haven't tried it really is worth the money.
With it 15 hour staying power and Spf10 it really is the perfect long lasting hardwearing foundation.
What can I say about the Bronze Goddess I have wanted this for ages and I knew I would love it, I brought min in th shade medium because I do like smooth bronzed glow and this is perfect for that it such a lovely texture but then I knew it would be another thumbs up from me loving Estee Lauder.
For my lips I used my new Clinique lip liner in the shade intense café with my Diego Dalla Palma Nude lipstick and they go perfectly together.
Thanks for popping by and take care my lovelies

Bicester Village Shopping Trip

   Bicester Village well what a day, we was planning on going in March but us being us decided last minute to go Sunday lol so random but hey why not you only live once.
    Our day started at 5.30am I need to set my alarm early so I can function properly, so half 7 I left to pick up the bestie to my horror was ready haha we set off on our journey to Oxford.
It was beautiful drive everything was white and untouched with snow so calming and tranquil which was a shock as there was no snow where we live lol.
   Once we was there we had a walk round to see what was about and oh my gosh the shops I was in heaven.
 Celine Jimmy Choo, Karen Millen, Jack Wills, Superdry, Michael Kors, Marc Jacob, Prada, Gucci, Ralph Lauren and so many more I was in my element.
we first window shopped then went up one side and came down the other only because we couldn't miss one shop lol.
   My first purchase was in Karen Millen I had been looking for some leather gloves for a while now and I found some beautiful Oxblood ones not only were they on sale but they also had an extra 20% off.........I no I was ecstatic then at the counter the sale jewellery had also further 50% off and I had spotted a stunning diamante gold and silver pair of heart shaped bracelets so yep I got them too.
   Then my next purchase was some Ugg boots I originally wanted some grey or navy blue classic mid calf boots but when I saw these they had me.
I haven't seen this style around much and half price which is always a thumbs up lol, they are black suede and part soft leather with two buckles on the side and fit like a dream.
luckily they were the last pair and in my size which again just says its fate that these beauties had to come home with me and so they did nearly didn't though as I left them in Superdry eeekkk lol.

   After venturing in the Jack Wills shop which I have to say now JW and Superdry are my all time favourite shops being a slight tom boy they are very me.
I had wanted some JW leggings for a while but the closest shop to us is Cambridge so I was delighted there was one here and again must be fate the last size 10 pair there so in my basket those bad boys went I also got a pair of jeans a pair of trackie bottoms and phone case, so after having to go back 3 times due to security tags being left on we was getting peckish so went into the farm shop restaurant.
I chose on the chicken salad sandwich even thou I wanted beef I just cant eat that anymore ggrrrr but I have say it was lush the sourdough bread was amazing.

   Donna started off with Olives and bread, she does love her olives me personally do not YUCK lol.
 We then had been refuelled and was ready to hit the other shops next we went into Michael Kors where Donna brought the most stunning bag in a blush rose colour where she walked round the shop with it on her shoulder lol.
   We did go in Superdry and there prices were amazing but oh why oh why do they cram so much stuff in such a small shop, I'm glad I didn't have a buggy I'd never of got round it was packed and I got rather frustrated with how rude most of the people were so we both walked out, to which I left my Ugg bag but thankfully a shop assistant found it and I got it back PHEWWW !!!!

   The Cosmetics Company had to of been the shop I was most looking forward to but alas I was disappointed in the Mac Bobbi Brown and Smashbox section but over the moon I got my Estee Lauder double wear foundation and the Bronze Goddess, I also got some Clinique, I was after the chubby stick bronzer and I got it also got a chubby stick eye pencil in gold its lush.
   So pleased I got my Calvin Klein underwear been after it for ages then just as we was leaving we popped into Ted Baker which was packed but managed to get this beauty.

   So chuffed with it, with it's amazing rose gold accessories in the patent leather and cream flap, it's a perfect size for everyday and it's a cross body bag so all in all its perfect and more then half price woohoo. 
   Saved the best till last Ralph Lauren I got the Mr two t-shirts and one for me but the ark de triumph was the oxblood suede loafers reduced to £25 yes I no and they are so comfy and go lovely with my Michael Kors sunglasses.
   I kid you not this place is amazing can't wait to save up again for trip number two lol Bicester Village gets a big thumbs up from us.

Take care my lovelies

Lush Cosmetics & Homedics ...........Yay or Nah !!

 Good morning my lovelies I hope you are all well and had an amazing weekend, mine was pretty chilled tbh just sorting out bits to get my YouTube channel up and running eeekkk.
I'm getting slightly impatient now though I just want to start filming lol. Also was shopping Saturday with my daughter which I blogged Sunday I just caught up on some YouTube videos and blogs also posted a few bit on Insta but that's about it for my oh so exciting life lol.

   Then It's Monday and I am feeling good and all refreshed from my pamper morning yesterday which I love to do on a Sunday when the kids are out playing and I'm home alone, so what perfect chance to try out some of my Lush goodies especially as I was dying to try the H'SUAN WEN HUA hair treatment.
   I got all my bits and pieces together turn on the shower waited for it to warm up and climbed in, ohh that feeling you just cant beat it.
You apply the product to dry hair and as I said half a tub, which is absolutely fine because this stuff is amazing, The tub says It's packed with everything to put the condition and shine back into your hair, woohoo can not wait, I decided to exfoliate whilst waiting the twenty mins to which gave the Buche De Noel and go with my Homedics Elle Macpherson wet and dry face & body exfoliation brush, my most amazing purchase of 2016 so far it has two large heads and two small I did try the brush but it had a funny smell when wet lol I haven't used the pumi one yet but I love the loather pad and the facial brush and its on sale £19.99 get one I so recommend it and is defiantly getting a big YAY from me !!!

   So back to the Face cleanser, on the tub it says "treat yourself to a deliciously fruity, boozy concoction to nourish and cleanse the skin. Yule be glad you did"
And I was so glad I did this concoction smells oaty which we all no is fab for the skin but also with what looks like cranberries in it.
It is amazing my skin felt soft and toned it also looked so clear I was so shocked by the results and I am now gutted I didn't get more, it made my skin so smooth that when I applied my make up it went on perfectly flawless to the point I put up a non filtered non edited selfie.
I will defiantly be stocking up next year on that bad boy wow it is getting a big YAY thumbs up all round.
   I rinsed off my hair shampooed and conditioned it OH MY GOSH it felt like silk, I kid you not its a miracle in a tub.
Give me a big hands up to Lush and flick your hair till the cows come home coz im telling ya that exactly what you'll want to do, it'll be like a L'Oreal ad lol and trust me you so worth this little tub of joy.

So Sunday was a good day for chilling pampering and restoring with three YAY's and no NAH's now I am all ready for a Manic Monday lol.

Take care lovelies

Some Saturday Shopping........Like You Do

  Today I took my princess shopping to spend her birthday money today, so we first off went into Primark like you do.
Of course I couldn't go into there without picking up a few bits for myself as well lol. 
   At the moment I am absolutely loving jumper dresses and I found a stunning one today, oxblood my 3rd favourite colour after pink and rose gold.
It was in the sale £5 what a bargain. Then we had to pick up some jewellery for my daughters bestie and they had some lovely bits in the sale so yes that's right in the basket they go.
   But my Best Buy of today is the boots can we take a few minutes to look at the boots..........I have been looking for these for months and low and behold the last pair in a 4 woohoo in the basket these bad boys went lol, and just like every time I'm in there queuing at the tills there's always something that catches my eye ....I swear every bloody time but this time it had to be brought it was rose gold and practical lol.
   Then we went into LUSH yes I no I'm obsessed lol but this time it was my princess who wanted to go it just so happened that they have brought back the Unicorn Horn (just a bit excited) so of course I had to pick up one along with lots of other bits she picked. 
  Sorry but I needed a close up of these beauties oh I cant explain how happy I am that I found them. 
There's so many outfits for these skirts dressed skinny jeans they go with absolutely everything.

So this was my Saturday I hope yours has been amazing.

Take care lovelies

Another Thrilling Day In The Life Of Me......

   So my day started with me in the dr's once again but I won't bore you with it just got more antibiotics and bed rest .......sick of it now oh the joys.
It's not been all bad thanks to Netflix so I decided to go back a few years and watch Buffy the vampire slayer.
Yes I confess I'm a Buffy and Angel addict don't hold it against me lol. Whilst chilling and eating my melon drinking lots of water I decided to chose my next tattoo.
I got one last year on my birthday so I was thinking time for another.
  Roses one each for my babies just not sure I want it on my lower arm or upper arm but I have time to think lol. After that boredom kicked in.
So what does a beauty addict do when there bored ? Yep they play with there Christmas presents lol and I painted my nails, I got a stunning set from French Connection lovely nude colours so I thought I'd brighten up my day by brightening up my nails, it's the little things that keep you going when your housebound, I just hope the cabin fever doesn't kick in lol.
   Stunning and a lovely texture the brush is great I found it really easy to apply, and I do love fresh new manicure. 
   Then after checking my emails I came across one from Lasula Boutique something that oh my gosh it's lovely, I mean don't get me wrong I don't need another jacket but when I find something that I keep going back to I no I'll be miserable until I get it lol and it is stunning plus if you use the discount code you get 24% off 
It's just perfect it's like my two ideal costs made into one part bomber part parka.
I can not wait to get this Lasula Boutique is one of my all time favourite fashion web sites i have brought my Christmas jumpers and pjs from there three years in a row.
The derive is great the items are great and the delivery is to I can not fault the service I've had over the years.
This is last weeks purchase the outfit I wore today and I'm so glad I got it the faux fur collar is so soft and the jacket is very much like a flying jacket. With an added bonus of 30% off seriously always keep an eye out for there codes there awesome.

   So as It goes this was my day in a nutshell housebound poorly but productive as always and I still manage to complete the housework and get on top of the washing go figure lol.

The Craziest Beauty Haul Ever !!!

    So here I am as promised an upclose and personnel insight to the madness that was yesterday, its going to be a big one bare with me lol.

   First off I will start with the LUSH products that I purchased all apart from the hair treatment was 50% off.
Ohh what can I say such beauty so I will start with SnowFairy shower gel smells like candyfloss and has a slight shimmer to it I love it and was even luckier to get it half price woohoo bargain I'll have three. Then there's the HoneyBee bath bomb I haven't tried this one yet and from the smell of it I can not wait as it says it takes the sting out, sounds good to me, and now for the hair products I picked up this jasmine smelling beauty Godiva naked goodness can't wait to try this its a shampoo and conditioner I'm really excited to see how it works.
Last but certainly not least the whole reason I went into the blooming shop lol for my hair treatment I had first seen this on LoveLaughAndMakeup YouTube channel Love her.
Just don't go in and try and ask for this stuff especially if you a bit flustered. This little tub of creaminess is to condition your hair and bring the shine back , you apply it to dry hair and lots of it this slightly worries me as I have mid back length hair and quite thick to I think I'll get two washes out of one tub eeek could be expensive lol. I'm trying it out tonight so I will update in my next post with what I think.
   Now this was a good shop I decided to pop into Primark while I was waiting for my daughters cookie cake and most of this was £1.00 apart from the lipsticks it was all on sale.
I've yet to try any of these products but if anyone would like a review on any of them please feel free to leave a comment.
The eye shadows are so gorgeous and shimmery I really can't wait to do a makeup with them and the illuminate skin brightening cream you can wear on its own or under your foundation for a dewy look that'll last all day, and the liquid glow wow I can not wait to contour with this bad boy and highlight the brow bone and cheeks.
  I love trying new products and new makeup looks I'm so excited about everything I brought I'm very eager to go and play lol. The lip sticks are obviously matte as I've said before I'm slightly obsessed and this nude pink is stunning I do have a deep red but its in my bag hehe.

Here they are the little beauties I posted yesterday in all there glory, 5 beautiful matte lipsticks by MUA the link for these is on yesterdays post, I'm really loving the deep reds at the moment I've always worn nudes but I'm just starting to come out of my comfort zone and try some new things, I also grabbed some other products from MUA I have a sheer translucent powder but I wanted a matt one on days of oily skin urghhh.
I also picked up the Undress Your Skin under eye concealer in the Luminous which I love to brighten up my under eye and this works perfectly, I do have a few products that I will always use and always go back to and this is one of those products.
   There was so many offers on in Superdrug 342 and Maybelline was 2 for £10 so I got some new products and some classic products the new Matte eyeliner is amazing I used it this morning the brush is perfect and it's stayed on all day with the help of the other new product I brought the 24 hour fixing spray, well what can say about this it's AMAZING !!
   Then I needed to replace my Eraser anti aging under eye concealer so of course as I had three products and it was on offer I had to yes I had to find another one lol, so I chose the 24 hour gel liner with two ended applicator another classic I love using.
   And yes I've saved the best for last as I'd seen this all over YouTube and was dying to try it, I have tried to find a link to this but its not on the Superdrug website for some strange reason, but trust me pop into your local store and purchase one it is stunning.

   Well that's my huge haul I hope I've inspired you to try some new products that are on the market at the moment happy hunting and have fun after all that's what makeup is about having fun.

Have a lovely evening and take care
