LTD Tweezerman :)

Yesterday my mummy surprised me with something i have been eyeing up and talking about for a very long time :) some LTD Tweezerman tweezers yaaay i didn't think i was going to be getting these badboys until my birthday as they are quite pricey at £20(for tweezers anyway)
So chose me the floral print tweezers which are slanted.
They are quite bright colours on one side....


Then the other they are very pretty with pinks and blues


They also come with this really cute white reptile print pouch to keep them nice and safe :)


Here is just a really random picture of me trying them out hehe!!


I had heard amazing reviews about these tweezers and for such a long time i have been trying to achieve the 'perfect brow' and i thought this tool would perfect it for me...and i was correct!
Tweezerman= Amazing :DDDD
The great thing about these is that they are slanted so they really pick up all the loose strands that are always such a task to get out. I have already used them to create more of an arch on my brow and boy did they make it so much easier!! I have also just used them on my mum and she has just now ran off with them wishing she had bought some for herself. For months and months my mum has been moaning that she wants me to help her with her eyebrows to achieve a better arch and overall a better look, so today i did that for her and she cannot stop looking at them in the mirror! From having no arch and shape to a truly precise arch she is over the moon and it really only took me minutes as these are so easy and quick to use!! I hope i get them back from my mum as i love them just as much as she does lol!!


Tweezermans verdict:
Positively the finest general use tweezer in the world - top eyebrow artists always recommend our original, award winning Slant for expert brow shaping. The perfectly aligned, hand-filed tips are slanted to grab every hair, every time with the smoothest, true precision!
Tweezermans tips:
To ease tweezing, take a hot shower or use a warm washcloth to open pores. Tweeze in the direction of hair growth to avoid breakage. To close pores post tweezing, use cold water or astringent and try our After Tweeze™ Soothing Cream — it helps counteract redness and irritation while moisturizing and soothing tender brow areas.
These are positively amazing and a must have in ANY make-up bag

In and Out

In

1. 100000000% in is the Garnier Body Tonic Sugar Scrub this product is positively amazing so i am going to do a full review in a video i think as i really really love this product! One thing though it quite pricey however i know at the minute Superdrug have it on offer for about £3.49 i believe so quickly go grab it while its on offer girlie's!!

2. Mac Colour Crafted lippie i have raved an raved on about this lipstick and i will still rave on about it as it is gorgeous i have been wearing it pretty much everyday since i got it and thank god have 4 back ups yaaaaay to have Mac at the airport :)

3. L'oreal Glam Shine Juice in 224 candy juice. This lip gloss is gorgeous and very affordable, it comes from L'oreal's new line of Glam shines and i think it is a must have. Its an amazing coral/pink colour but it perfect on top of any nude lip or Mac Costa Chic(that is what i have been teaming it with) Its just such a summer colour and the consistency and heart wand just top this product off!! Please go get one you i can promise you wont be disappointed!!

4. Davina McCalls DVD workout=soooooooo much fun!!! I'm currently on a diet girls and with working the shifts i do makes it so hard for me to get to the gym before and after work so an idea came to mind one day at work, why don't i just get a work out DVD, so i did and i went with Davina McCalls. My mum had heard amazing reviews about this workout and it really is so good. It includes a lot of kickboxing work which is super fun as i have never tried this before and just generally a really good full body workout which you will 100% feel in the morning!

5. Eating healthy. I have always been into my chocolate and crisps however a week ago today i decided i wanted to loose a stone and a half which meant completely cutting out all the rubbish i eat and i am sooooooo happy i have started to do this. I have cut out all white bread and pasta i now just eat wholemeal its silly things like this that i should have been doing years ago that are really helping! I am actually really enjoying the healthy foods and i feel generally a whole lot better in myself, I'm not as tired after work and on my rest days i don't feel i need to sleep alllllll day. So i think that me getting my head around the idea of a diet is really going to change my lifestyle in general as i really don't know how i ate sooooo much rubbish before :O

6. BRIGHTON!!! oh how i love this place. I always knew i had a special place in my heart for Brighton but it was only yesterday when i really realised something....Sometime in my life, when i don't know but sometime i really want to live in Brighton i just love it. I was there yesterday for my brothers graduation and i have only ever seen Brighton when its been really really busy but i arrived there quite early in the morning so i could appreciate it more and i really do love it!!

7. Being able to back comb my hair!! I have been waiting sooooo long for this day but it has finally come. I have been growing my hair for months(go check out my hair changes post) and finally yesterday i was able to back comb to crown of my hair and wear a platted head band on top and i love it!!! Yaaaaaaaay to back combing although its very bad for your hair lol

Yep that's it for the ins sorry there was alot

Out

1. Being ill. Im currently off work as i was rather ill last night and i hate it sooooooooo much it sucks :(((((((

2. LucyMarie85 has gone :( You all may have heard already but LucyMarie85 YouTube account got hacked into the other day and deleted!!!! I don't know how anyone could have done this, it is positively evil and i am sooooooo upset about it! I think I'm going to be making a video about it but i just had to include it in this as it really has affected me. Lucy was my bestie on here and had been since the very beginning. She had been there for me since day one and we got on soooooo well. Her videos were amazing, she was gorgeous funny sweet and amazing at what she did so its such a shame that she has gone :( I will miss you so so so much Lucy Mwah xxxxxxxxx

I would love to hear yours guys!!! Please comment xxxxxxxxxxx

H&M Goodies :)

As you all may have known yesterday i attended my brothers graduation which i have to admit was a lovely ceremony and generally a lovely day out with the whole family(pictures will be up soon) I had a huge panic on Tuesday as i still hadn't bought any shoes to go with my outfit..so with being at home and not at my boyfriends i wasn't able to 'quickly pop' into westfeild like i normally do i had to pop into the nearest shopping centre to me that to be honest has very minimal shops. I luckily did find some shoes in good old New Look which always seems to be a saviour for shoes these days!!
So onto the point of this post..i went into H&M and i have to admit they have some amazing pieces of jewelery from rings necklaces to bracelets it is all gorgeous and very very affordable with things ranges from £1.99-£4.99 which i think is really good considering the quality and design of the jewellery.

I did pick up only one thing i am sad to say, seeing as i used to work for H&M and in particular this very H&M i was in i felt a little uncomfortable being in there as i haven't visited anyone in a while and i left a slightly bad note!!

So down to what i did get.......

This gorgeous bracelet which only cost £4.99! It is a cream a gold cuff type bracelet however it is very stretchy. It just has cream circle detailing and surrounding the circles is gold very simple but looks amazing on!!

As you can see here! I just wanted to let all my lovely followers know and to quickly pop into your nearest H&M before it all get snaps up! I feel sad as i wasn't able to buy alot put i will be hopefully going to a H&M in London when i am back at my boyfriends so i can pick up some of these gorgeous pieces without feeling very on edge lol!
I'm sorry about the quality of these pictures it just seems that before my Internet gets sorted on the 9th of august taking pictures on my web cam is very successful when it comes to uploading them so until the 9th I'm sorry but these are going to have to do!!
Love you all lots xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

L'oreal Voluminous

This is positively my all time favourite mascara to date. Rumour has it that this mascara has been discontinued in the uk and will no longer be stocking it, well as soon as i heard this i went into complete panic and rushed to the shops to stock up but to find they had already sold out everywhere!! If you watch my youtube videos then you will know i did manage to pick one up a few days ago but yes only one as that is all they have left.
So the reason for me to post this blog
1. If any of you know anywhere that still has alot of these in stock then please please let me know!!
2. Possibly anyone who is willing to send me some if you have a large stock in the area you live(only if this is far away from me as in internationally)
3. If any of you know of a dupe for this mascara i would be hugely great full for you to let me know!
I love this mascara and cannot imagine my daily routine not including this product :(

So i have been after this little beauty for weeks and i finally got my hands on one and i am soooooo happy about it i LOVE it! A few weeks ago i saw this watch advertised in either heat or look magazine and knew i had to snap this one up quickly!! As soon as i went to get it it had sold out so for weeks my eyes have been totally peeled looking out for this watch...but today my boyfriend had a surprise for me and yes it was this watch!!! I was OVERALLY excited about it!!
This watch is an amazing copy of the chanel J12 that i can only dream about owing!! The only thing it is missing of course are the diamonds hehe but you cant have everything i suppose!! This watch is by the company Sekonda and the amazing thing is the price...this watch only comes in at £19.99 total bargain i think!!

Bourjois new love!!

I have always LOVED Bourjois as a brand...i love everything, the eye shadows, the lip glosses,the lipsticks,the mascaras everything really!
Now i had been eyeing these new lip glosses up for quite some time but yesterday at work my amazing boyfriend picked these two up for me..he had alot of points on his boots advantage card and said i could have whatever i wanted so of course i picked up these two new lip glosses(he helped me pick the colours as well :D)
Here is a picture without the flash

and with the flash...

They are pretty much the same as the classic Bourjois lip glosses we all know with the gold lid however they are Effect 3D MAX where as the classics are just Effect 3D. They smell just as amazing as before but the consistently is slightly thicker. They also have shine activating micro agents in them and also the brushes are different...the classic is a thin brush but these new lip glosses come with a plastic wand which i really like.


The colours i picked up are: on the left hand side-no61 and on the right hand side no62. No62 has alot more glitter and shimmer in it but i love them both they are gorgeous.
They are on promotion at the minute so definitely go check them out they were around £5-£6 each!

Soap&Glory Vs Johnsons

So if you are subscribed to my YouTube channel then you may have seen one of my recent videos where i showed you guys that i finally have had acrylic nails put back on and i am loving them so so much! I gave myself a 6 month break from acrylic nails as my real nails got into a really bad condition, however i couldn't last anymore i gave in and got them put back on.

Ever since having them put back on I'm now obsessed with keeping my nails and hands in really good condition..so i quickly popped into boots after getting my nails done and wanted to pick up some new hand cream.

I came across two and couldn't decide which one to get so i ended up getting both lol

The product above is a Soap&Glory endless glove dry hand cream which cost £4.99

I was really drawn to this product because of the packaging its so bright and colour full...looks very fun and exciting!

The product below is by Johnson's baby and its from there new natural range which cost £1.99

I was really drawn to this product because of the price and reading alot of good reviews on Johnson's products!

So which one do i prefer??
If I'm honest they both smell amazing..the soap&glory has a more sweet smell as it has kiwi fruit and daisy flower extract however the Johnson's smells just like a baby he he they are both as good as each other!!
The quality of each product does vary quite dramatically..Soap&glory is not that moisturising however the Johnson's is extremely moisturising and slightly more greasy but once that has dried your hands feel amazingly soft.
I'm really finding it hard to choose one but ill be honest with you...What with working at the airport we have to go through a staff security check point and the rules that apply to the public apply to us too so we are only allowed liquids 100ml or under so....the soap&glory is 125ml and the Johnson's is 100ml so its the perfect size for me to take to work so i have taken this with me everyday since and love it. I will be keeping the soap&glory for at home though and when I'm not at work :)
Love them both though

I'm sorry that was a bit long winded

CarBooty :)

Hey everyone..Hope your all OK and have been enjoying the weather over the last week.
I have a few blog post for you today because since being able to upload my 'Help' video onto YouTube my blog has started to work again lol funny that...seems to be it was my fault after all and its to do with the Internet connection at my house :( so i have got my dad on the case and he is currently on the phone to virgin sorting it out for me yaaaay!!
Anyway moving onto what this post is about....
Last Sunday which is nearly a week ago now, me my boyfriend and my boyfriends mum and aunt headed out to a car boot near to where i live. I love car boots and about 2 years ago got so into them i started buying and selling jewelery at car boots however i had to stop due to my hours of work. I was so excited to go back to one and see what bargains i could find...
Here it is for you guys...it isn't alot i was slightly disappointed but am happy with my purchases :)
First thing i picked up was this Nails Inc set 7 nail varnishes 1 base coat 1 top coat and a cuticle oil
The lady selling it said it retails at £65 but i paid only £20 for it so i was pretty happy about that seeing as it was brand new and never been used.
I am currently blogging this at my dads office so don't actually have the names of the varnishes so i will update it later when i am at home!!!!


I then came across these total bargains!!
Two Faced Lash injection mascara and Two Faced Mood Swing lip gloss
For how much you ask...... £1!!!!!!!
Oh how i love my £1 bargains hehe







Hope you like this guys!! I am really loving the mascara so will be doing a review soon!!
