Sunday night pedicure!

I decided that my feet needed a little treat for the week ahead of them :D
So i wanted to use one of my 9 BarryM nail paints
Here are the colours i have(without flash)

(with flash)

I decided to go with this amazing grass green(looks more mint green but its not) its called Spring Green and its no 290 :D

Here are the products i used:
The Body Shop: Peppermint cooling foot lotion
The Body Shop: Peppermint cooling foot spray
BarryM Nail Paint: Spring green 290

I also added a bit of sparkle with this stick on diamante!!


Hair changes in 1 year!

So here are some pictures of how my hair has change in the last year(there is alot i know)
I started with this length hair......
and then decided to go for the granduated bob.....

I then added some colour into my bob and went slightly shorter.....

I then went crazy and got 1 side longer than the other.....

I then hated it so decided to cut it all very very short which i also hated.....

and it has finally taken me 6months to get it to this length.....
but the question now is.......
do i get extensions???????????????????


New fav lip combo!

At the moment i am loving coral so so much! I popped into mac at work and picked up this gorgeous coral colour lipstick. Its a frost and its called 'Costa Chick' its quite a vivid coral colour although in the picture it looks more pink because of the flash.

Here it is without the flash and as you can see it is a very warm colour. I decided to pair it up with one of my dazzleglasses in 'Bare Necessity' and i love this combo so much as the dazzleglass really brightens it up with the glitter.

If you wanted to brighten it up without the glitter it also looks gorgeous with the Gosh cool lip jam in no 104 which also smells amazing too :D



One of my many obsessions!!!

This is crazy i know but im proud of it :D
(there is 41 but i have been collecting since i was 14)

Review: L'oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara!

So i purchased this mascara a couple of days ago and decided to try it out this morning. The concept of this mascara is to give you Fanned out lashes for a spectacular look....lashes look fanned out,lengthened,fuller,curved for a wide-eyed look. So of course as soon as i read this on the packaging i was extremely drawn in and couldn't wait to try it out. I was also really drawn to the amazing multi-angled(flexi-globe) brush which i have not seen on any mascara before. The idea of the brush which is like a fluffy ball is to use it horizontally for short fine lashes and vertically for every lash from root to tip. The brush makes it easy to capture and separate each and every lash from the root, in the corners of your eyes and even the bottom lashes which can be hard to reach with a traditional brush .

I must admit i found this mascara quite hard to use as you really have to get used to the brush as it is completely different. I was really hoping that this was going to give me an incredible result but i have to say i wasn't all that impressed with it. The multi-angled brush is quite small so you end up trying to apply it for ages to capture the look that you want. So i decided to remove it all and try again. Really trying hard to achieve the look it described on the packaging i decided to add a coat of L'oreal Voluminous on the bottom and then work with the explosion and i have to say i was alot more impressed. It did capture my outer corner lashes alot more than normal and i felt my lashes did look alot more curled and lengthened. I am glad i bought this for roughly £6 on promotion in Tesco as i would have been a little bit more annoyed if i had paid £3 more for it as i don't think its worth it... definitely go grab yourself one whilst its on promotion just to see if you like the effect it gives.
