Georgina-Guest Blogger #4

Today i welcome you all to my 4th guest blogger Georgina :) I only came across Georgina's blog recently but instantly fell in love she has such a lovely well written blog i would really love it if you would all go and follow her!

Georgina's Post

Summer Glow FOTD

Hola chicaaas!

I was meant to be flying out to Crete tomorrow morning for a field trip but as you can guess, that won't be happening. So I thought I would inject a little glow into my make up today. I took inspiration from Pixiwoo's latest video – dewy skin, neutral eyes and bright lips. The bright lips aren't actually that bright but coming from a nude lip lover this is a big step..!


Nivea Young Tinted Moisturiser

MaxFactor Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation – Warm Almond 45

Prestige Bronzer – Glam Tan


2True Lip Tint – Blush Pink topped with Vaseline


Elf Eyebow Kit - Medium

Sleek champagne coloured e/s from Storm pallete

Bourjois Clubbing Mascara

This look was so quick and easy – I really like going without powder these days ... you just a much more natural effect. Coupled with a heavy handed application of the Glam Tan I got the 'glow' I was looking for!

If you want to see more of Georgina then head over to her blog HERE

Hope you enjoyed that :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this nail varnish! I picked this up the other day and painted my nails with it today! Its such an amazing colour. I was quite skeptical at first as it seemed with one coat it was very sheer and didnt apply well at all so i thought it was going to have to do a few coats but after the 2nd coat it was perfect and gave off the most amazing matte blue. This is from the new 17 collection, they have some amazing pastel colours which i for sure will be going back to buy :) X

Revlon Minted&Posh Pink

The other day i was having a look around superdrug and noticed that there was on offer on the new Revlon Nail Varnishes 2 for £8!! They cost £6.99 usually and i had been longing for the colour Minted so thought it was a great deal :)

Here we have Revlon Minted.

A great pastel green perfect for the summer!

Then we have Revlon Posh Pink.

I don't usually go for shimmery nail varnishes but this is actually really gorgeous. I think i am going to try and get away with this at work hehe shhhh!!

I really love the formula of these nail varnishes.

I can honestly say that Revlon is my favourite drugstore brand. They have some amazing new lip glosses which again the colours are perfect for summer so i cant wait to get my hands on some of those :)

*Top 3 Summer Fragrances + Summer Fragrance Wishlist*

I am a HUGE perfume addict. I have been since the young age of around 13 when i purchased my first ever perfume which was Hugo Boss Deep Red, that perfume will always bring back so many child hood memories! Do you like me always smell your perfumes and that scent floods back different memories of when you bought that perfume or when you used to wear it alot? Every single one of my perfumes reminds me of "something" and i love it! This brings me on to my top 3 fragrances for the summer. Over the last 2 years i have been very lucky to have gone on some amazing holidays with my gorgeous boyfriend Ryan and its always been a tradition for me to by a perfume when i go on holiday at duty free. Now i am going to share with you my top 3 from my personnel collection and then i am going to share with you my wish list for some new summer fragrances :)

Obviously these perfumes means alot to me and bring back some amazing memories of the summer/holidays ect and that's why i love to only wear them in the summer and seeing as the weather is getting better these are the 3 perfumes i have been reaching for. Now these may not be to every ones tastes however although they are the perfect summer smell for my because they bring back amazing memories they are really summery scents which will cheer everyone up :)

First up is Ghost Sweetheart!

I bought this at duty free when me and Ryan were going on our first holiday to Turkey so obviously this brings back amazing memories but it is also the perfect summer smell. Its very strong so lasts a good few hours. Its not one of those scents which is a light summer fragrance it is quite heavy but in a good way. The main note in this perfume i believe is vanilla and orange. Its not a floral summer scent its just a bright sweet vanilla but there is also a slight musk to it to deepen the fragrance slightly! Overall such a stunning fragrance.

Then we have the Hollister perfume!

I didn't buy this at duty free as they don't stock Hollister but i did buy this about a week before mine and Ryans holiday to Egypt and i saved it for the holiday! This perfume is very girly its like a really happy fragrance. Once again there is a strong vanilla note in there but also a slight hint of floral. I'm sure you guys have got a whiff of this perfume when shopping in Hollister as they do spray it everywhere!! It does smell delicious though!

Then finally we have the D&G unisex perfume in 18 La Lune.

I got this perfume in Terminal 4 Heathrow when we were off to the Philippines :)

This perfume i could literally smell alllll day its such an easy scent. Once again it does have a hint of vanilla but that's is also mixed with quite a strong floral note and i believe there could be a almond/woody note in there. Its such a different scent with so many possible notes in there which is why i love it because its really unpredictable. These perfumes are unisex however i don't think a man would really like this scent :)

I can happily admit i do have an addiction to perfume hehe i have an unhealthy amount of perfume i could literally open my own shop haha! So when it comes to summer and the summer editions of perfumes get released i got a bit crazy and i love it! I love to smell all the different summer fragrances. Some may say that these fragrances don't last as long as they are not as strong however this doesn't stop me so i wanted to share with you my wish list for summer fragrances.

No 1. Essence d'Orange Cartier

I have wanted the original Cartier perfume for a really long time however now this has been released this is my no1 must have.

No 2 Paul Smith Rose Summer Edition

This smell AMAZING i sprayed it yesterday at work and it lasted all day- i even walked in from work last night and my dad said "mmm you smell nice what perfume is that" This is 100% a MUST HAVE!!!

No 3 Miss Dior Cherie

This is the newest fragrance from Miss Dior Cherie. I have the original Miss Dior however i ran out a few months ago sad times :( I sprayed this in boots recently and my boyfriend and i fell in love with it so once again a huge must have.

No 4 Armani Code Summer

Haven't yet smelt this but i love the original Armani Code and i have heard great things about the Summer Edition so cant wait to try it!

No 5 CKIN2U Heat

I love love love the original CKIN2U and once again i have run out :( So cant wait to try this new summer edition!

*All pictures courtesy of google images*

That's it my lovelies my top 5 new summer fragrances!

I can't wait to get my hands on any of these :)

Love you all lots xXx

I Heart My New Hair :)

Hello my darrrlings :) If you follow me on Twitter then you will know that my hairdresser came round today to finally get me closer to my desired light brown caramel colour :) The last two attempts we weren't able to lift my hair any lighter as we were still trying to get the red tint out of my hair however today is a huge step forward and i am totally in love with it!! In 6-8 weeks time when i have my hair coloured again my base colour will be one shade lighter and my blonde highlights will lift even more and then that will be it for me my hairdresser will have achieved my desired colour and i will be even happier!!

As for now i do honestly love this colour as well, it has made my skin look a lot healthier,glowy and not so pale and run down. The dark brown was far to dark for my skin tone and even my eyes look a lot greener :) Over all i am suuuper duuuper happy i have decided to go lighter, i was slightly nervous but i now know i will always have light/caramel brown hair :)

What do you gorgeous peeps think?!?
