To buy or not to buy...

Hey girls!
So, I've recently seen and read a number of reviews around a certain product I'd never heard about. I've read so much about them, that I fell I need to see what the fuss is all about. The product......Lip scrubs from Lush. They come in three different 'flavours'; Mint choc chip, Bubblegum and popcorn. Just that one fact about them makes me want them!
I also love the packaging:
Bubblegum....Looks so nice!


This will smell sooo nice!

I've heard they make your lips really soft and smooth, which is what I'm always looking for to be honest. Now, I'll admit, I'm a vaseline girl all the way, but these have seriously caught my eye!
Some people have complainted at the price, but I think £5.25 a decent price personally because the tubs are quite big, so I'll definitely be buying! I think I may buy one of each...they all sound and look so nice, I can't resist!

Have you tried these? What did you think of them?
Do you also want to try them?

My love for Front Cover

Hi everybody, I just thought I'd share with you some make-up I have, which I just love. This is my second set of this exact same piece, and I just think it's amazing! It's a Front Cover set, and it has some lovely colours in it. It's a set with eye-shadows:

Apologies for the bad photo!
This is the front cover, which I love, because when you move it, the images changes and it shows you another style of make up. Lovely!

Here are the colours. (this set has been used, so sorry for it not been really clean...I like to show I've actually used something)
I love how the first layer of colours are bright, and quite in your face, and the second layer has more natural colours with greens and browns. 

Here is a selection of my personal faves from the set...

We have...
Magic banana (Centered at the side)
Upper row: Bracken// Ginger spice//Bayou//
Lower row: Stonewash//Chalk violet// Mermaid

What's your favourite colour?

Thanks for reading lovelies!

firstly, sorry I haven't done a proper post today. I've been quite busy, and my boyfriend was also over, so I didn't have much time to make a post. I have some great ideas for my blog for the next few days, I'm just making some alterations on some ideas, but apart from that, I'm going to be busy blogging over these next few days. I hope you don't mind this boring post-I promise tomorrow's will be much better!
Goodbye lovelies,

New found love

I have recently come across some new clothing websites I'd never heard of before, and  thought I'd share with you some of the things which have caught my eye. I've now got even more things I'm wanting, so I really need to save!

Firstly, was the blog I found the first website from. is the website, and there are some amazing pieces on here! My particular faves:

This is such a lovely dress-really summery and just perfect for a day of shopping, and catching up with the girls. I think the pattern is beautiful and I love the simplicity and how it looks quite girly. And of course the favourite colour. I love pastel colours, so this is just a complete winner for me!

I know you're thinking 'why is she showing us a bra?', well, why am I? Because I personally think it's lovely. It's so delicate looking, and the mint-green colour just works so well with it. I also like the lace on the bra, it makes them really pretty. 

I'm obsessed with buying denim jackets-I'm not even lying, I collect them ;P so naturally I was drawn to this little beauty. Such nice detailing, and it makes a nice difference to the same ones everyone is wearing!

Okay, the colour got me first, and then the skinny-ness. I love a nice, really skinny pair of jeans, and this colour will be lovely in the summer. so tempting!

This is just gorgeous, I feel like no explanation is needed her. Beaut!

How nice are they though? unique and interesting, lovely pastel colour and high-my idea of perfection.

Oh my, how divine! The colour is soo nice, the heel-no explaining and the bow, so lovely. I would deffo buy a pair!

How nice are those shorts?!? I just fell in love with them! they're so perfect, I really want a pair, and temptation is kicking in...I might actually have to purchase them! 

The second website I've come across myself is:
Really good website, with some nice unique pieces. Here's what I've spotted:

Cute little bag! Really good for during the day, and the pattern is really nice!

Purse-simple, and plain, however, I like the button on the side, and it's a really good size.

This pattern is lovely! Perfect for the day or night, and it's really eye-catching too.

The third website is-
I'll admit, it's quite expensive, and there are some pieces that are just a big no for me. However, there are lots of pieces which I loved, and here they are:

This is just gorgeous! I love the worn look, and it works perfectly with this colour. Such a beautiful piece, and so unique and different to bags in the high street shops.

I love this. It's just so different, and it would look great with any outfit. Very tempting.

Love dungarees, and these just shout Channy! so girly and feminine, really nice.

I'm loving the flowers on these, really nice detailing and they'd be great for a picnic I think.

Earphones. Can we take a minute to examine how amazing these are? I am deffo purchasing some of these, they look fab and they're blue, so a must have for me!

How cosy does this look. Lovely :)

Okay, so these are just amazing, right? so cosy looking...I really want some!

This dress is gorgeous. I love the victorian style at the top, and how girly this is. So pretty!

These shoes are beautiful. They need no explanation, they are so nice.

so there we have it! 
what websites do you shop from?

Thanks for reading

I have to admit, I'm a lover of surprises, and I can't hide the fact that when someone mentions one, how excited I get. So when my boyfriend surprised me last Tuesday, I was super excited all day!
More information is needed I think...So, last Tuesday, my boyfriend and I had been together for 1 year. I still can't believe it-it has just flown by! We'd both decided to go for a meal, and not buy each other anything, and me being me, I thought we'd both abide by our mutual decision. Silly me. Zach, being Zach had planned to buy me things, and I arrived to college on Tuesday, to find him stood waiting for me, with a giftbag.
I was surprised, shocked and excited at the same time!
Anyhoo, enough of that, here's what he got me:

Absolutely love Me To You, so this was just perfect from the beginning! 

Sneak peak of them before I unwrapped them!

He clearly knows me too well. LOVE chewits!

Mmmm, so delicious! My fave chocolate :D

I'm a tad bit addicted to literally anything coconut, so this is just a winner for me! and it's M&S, you can't go wrong!
I can't wait to start using it and give a review on it.

Smells so nice!

This stuff is justt he nicest smelling stuff ever. It smells like calpol, and we all know we loved calpol when we were little ;) I have the spray, so he bought me the shower gel-my type of perfect gift.


Addicted to these, and I was running low so this was just perfect to receive!

All of the presents!

And again!

How cute is Zach though? ;) ahaha

Have you tried any of these products/food items? what did you think of them?
I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks for reading

I'd love...

Ear cuff- £5.99
I just love this. I think it's so nice, and it would look great on a night this price, it's so tempting!

Eyeliner - Smashbox - £14
£14 for eyeline, some would think is ridiculas. Well, I disagree. I have a thing for eyeliner's and I spend my time picking them out carefully, so I really want to try this one.
Has anybody tried this before?

Purse - Ted Baker - £99
An obvious must-have! I love Ted Baker, and I am just waiting for the chance to buy one. This one's quite new to the website, and the dog just does it for me ;)...however, at £99 I think I'm gonna hold off buying it, and wait until I've saved!

Shoes - Ted Baker - £50
Just because, they're beaut. This is the only reason I am giving myself for needing them. 

Dress - - £72
HOW BEAUTIFUL. Oh my god. I just fell in love with it. I am intending to buy this when I've saved some money up. It'd be great for  the day and the night, just teamed up with different accessories and jewellery and different shoes. Why not, eh? Well, because you have a lack of money Chan...but actually, there's money in my bank account-I'm feeling one of those moments were I have to do this.....

Skirt - River Island - £20
I love the simplicity of this skirt. The light colour, and the buttons down the nice.  Teamed with a simple vest top, this will be great for summer, and at such a low price, I think I may buy it...I just won £10 on the lottery, so this will be no problem...unless I buy something else ;)

Enchanting Gold body sparkler - The Body Shop - £14
This is amazing! Every time I go into Bodyshop, I give it a few puffs, but I never buy it, although, I am going to because I'm feeling it's now a must have personally. It's compliments the skin wonderfully, and makes your skin really soft.

Cream Jacket - - £39
This is gorgeous and I'm telling myself I can live without it, but I know that I may fail at this argument with my self. A) It will work both day and night. B)It will be perfect for the holidays. C) It will work with so many things. D)who could really say no?

Satchel - Cambridge Satchel Company - £105
Okay, so I love a satchel or two, but this, this is something even better. The colour, the patchwork...beautiful! The price isn't too bad, because the quality is fantastic, and I know they're really strong. So here's hoping I get one soon because I am so desperate for it! 

Dress - - £18
How gorgeous is this?!? The green and black-great combination! It's simple, yet so perfect, and at that price, surely it would be rude not to? I think so too!

So, there we have it-a few things I would love to buy at the moment. Here's hoping I suddenly become rich...

What things have taken your fancy lately?

Thanks for reading!

I just can't get enough...

I am constantly finding blogs that are just so wonderful, and that just get me hooked on wanting to know more about the people behind them. I know I recently did a post about some of my favourite blogs, but as I said, I'll be doing these often, because I think people need to know what amazing blogs are out there that they have never discovered.
Really good blog, easily a fave! Fashion, makeup, clothing-it's all here, and I would recommend you read this beautiful woman's words-you wont be disappointed!
I came accross Kate's blog the other day, and I knew from the moment I began reading that it would be one I would be re-visiting over and over again.God, this girl just gets more interesting the more you read! Kate's gorgeous, and I think she deserves a medal for this blog!
Okay, so fantastic blog...Phoebe has a fantastic fashion sense...basically everything is fantastic about her. In a nutshell: this blog is A-MA-ZING!! I love her style, and she has an ability to pull of so many things. I think she's an inspiration, definitely, and she's being added to my 'Blogging inspirations list' :).
The reason I love this blog, is definitely because I can see the lovely things Demi-Leigh has worn. She has some great pieces, and her outfits look sooo nice! I found this blog a few days ago, and I've kept going back, because I'm so interested in what Demi has to say. Sad? maybe, but then this girl is damn good I can't resist...can you blame me?
So many pictures/images on this blog, which is why I love it so much. Seeing the things Natalie has done is something I look forward to reading after a long day. Really great blog, and I am so glad I followed her!
I discovered this But, I am soooo glad I did!  Such a lovely read, and the girl behind it is gorgeous! LOVE IT, and yes, I am highly recommending that you read it!

There will be some more next week, but for now, check these out, they deserve your attention!

I LOVE cupcakes. I can never resist making them, and I constantly think of new ideas for them. I love trying anything, and today I made some marshmallow frosting cupcakes. They're amazing, super tasty...momma and pappa approve, so they'll definitely be getting done again!
I don't have set of pictures showing the method, as it was a trial run, however, next time I will post many pictures of my method used to make them.  For now, just admire my work ;) and let your mouths water! :P


Are you cupcake lovers like me? :)
