Beautifully Delicious Apple & Watermelon Bubblelicious Bath & Shower Gel

I Think you all know that i love shower gel and i am always on the look out for a new discovery.

So today i have for you Beautifully Delicious Apple & Watermelon Bubblelicious Bath & Shower Gel which unfortunately is LIMITED EDITION!!!

I do love Beautifully Delicious products as they all smell amazing and they have such a huge range of products and scents. I actually picked this shower gel up from Sainsburys for only £2.99 for 500ml so you get so much product for your money. To be honest the whole Beautifully Delicious range is really affordable.

How gorgeous is the bottle?? So sparkly!

The scent is just to die for..well for me anyway if you don't like the smell of watermelon then this isn't for you. Its really sweet and fresh. Its not really a winter scent so I'm not too sure as to why it is Limited Edition in the winter as i would swear by this product in the summer!! It really wakes me up in the morning.

What Beautifully Delicious say:
This Limited Edition bath & shower gel is full to the brim with delicious ingredients that are just too good to eat! Lose yourself in mouthwatering extracts of juicy apple and succulent watermelon for a truly uplifting sensory sensation.

You can also get this product from the Beautifully Delicious Website

Vasenline NEW Lip Thearpy Sticks.

As soon as i heard Vaseline had released a stick form for their famous lip therapy i ran out the next day to buy one. This winter i have sworn by my Vaseline cocoa butter. In all fairness i have used it a lot for dry patches on my face so then wasn't happy using it on my lips as a lip balm however Vaseline must have heard my prayers and released a stick form :) I can now have smooth lips with the cocoa stick and smooth skin with the cocoa butter tin!!

They are available in Original, Rosy Lips, Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter

Of course i picked up the cocoa butter but also cant wait to try the rosy lips.

These are just so handy to keep in your bag for during the day, or the evening to give your lips a shine and what with snow on its way again we all don't want to suffer with dry lips!!

Head down to your nearest Boots or Superdrug to pick up the new Vaseline Lip Therapy Sticks priced at only £1.99 they are a winter must have.

Sleek Blush Rose Gold & Pomegranate.

I love Sleek Make-Up not only for their amazing eyeshadow palettes but also for their blushes and lipsticks. So today i am going to share with you the two most recent blushes added to the Sleek Make-Up line.

On the left is Rose Gold
On the right is Pomegranate

I love these blushes so much as they give such a gorgeous shimmer to the skin. I'm not a huge fan of matte blushes i do love to have a sheen/shimmer to the skin. These blushes work perfectly for me to achieve this look at they contain not glitter just an amazing shimmer!

Swatch without flash.

Swatched with flash.

As you can see not a bit of glitter in sight just a stunning shimmer.
Rose Gold has said to be an amazing dupe for Nars Orgasm.

These blushes are extremely affordable at only £3.99 from Superdrug or the Sleek Make-up Website

BarryM Indigo

This is such a gorgeous colour but SUCH a nightmare to photograph!!

BarryM Indigo

As you can see from the pictures it is showing up a deep blue when in actual fact is an amazing deep dark purple. The first image which i sourced off google shows you a little better that it is a lot more purple however i just could not get it to photograph. In the pictures i am only wearing one coat so the pigmentation is amazing. I seriously urge that you check this out in person next time your at a BarryM counter as its a gorgeous colour!

New Layout & Blogs I ♥ Tab

Just a quick post to let you know i have changed my blog layout, yes again i know and i am sorry that i have changed it quite a lot recently. I had a few problems with my last layout so decided to stay true to the trusty blogger templates!

I hope you all like it and prefer it to my old layout. I can assure you that this will be it now, no more changing..well for a while anyway lol!!

Also i have tabs at the top of my blog now which i love and i have made a Blogs I Love tab so be sure to check out that for new blogs and to see if your blog has been featured.

Thank-you all for reading and dealing with my constant blog changing but this blog layout is pretty much here to stay :)

My New Love ♥ Sony Vaio

I think it is a bloggers worst nightmare when their laptop breaks. Yep it happened to me last week and it was the worst feeling in the world. How crazy is that though? It just shows how much a lot of us swear by our laptops.
 So blogging has been on a bit of a hold for me as i had to decide what laptop i wanted, go ahead a buy it and then get it up and running with transferring all my data over. Its all done now and normal blogging will resume from today :)

So i was lucky enough to get a gorgeous bright pink Sony Vaio from my gorgeous boyfriend ♥

I have wanted a Sony Vaio for aggggges. I know a lot of people have and prefer Mac books but to be honest i would rather have something slightly different and more to my taste.

So here is the beauty...

So this is where i will be blogging from now! Its all very exciting.

I have so much to blog about and lots of reviews to share with you. I have lots of gorgeous products from Xen-Tan, Phil Smith, Liz Earle, Tresemme, Ponds, Mint Cosmetics Uk and lots more so keep an eye out for those.

So who have i joined who the Sony Vaio group then hehe

'The Snow Is Falling...Everywhere'

The snow in the UK is causing chaos across most of the country and on Thursday my neck of the woods got hit with the white fluffy stuff :)

I know there has been so many snow pictures flying around the blogging world but it's got to be done. I trekked out before work into my garden to capture some gorgeous winter pictures!

Do you  love or hate the snow?!
