What’s in the big pink box?! Pretty Polly & Hello Kitty have released a new range of socks & tights perfect for the festival season with welly socks galore. Basically, I love Hello Kitty and when I went to Japan I stocked up on Hello Kitty everything so I was definitely excited when these socks popped through my door! Check the range out here.
Nigel’s Eco Store is an amazing little homeware and lifestyle shop online where you can pick up anything and everything related to your home but they all have an eco friendly beginning or a twist! I just thought I’d share with you all some bits I recently picked up from there for the house. I love reading haul posts so here’s my most recent one.
Today I’m sharing with you two of the new colours from the Zoya Tickled Summer Collection, the most recent additions to my nail varnish collection. I love summer nails, bright colours always make your hands look more tanned and your rings look sparklier! I’ve never used Zoya polishes before these and I’m really impressed with the formula so far, two coats is perfect coverage and they dry quite quickly! They’ve got loads of different colours in their summer collections including sparkly ones!
The face wipe debate is massive among the bloggersphere, we know. Now, I don’t use them solely in my skincare routine but I find that they work pretty well to get rid of loads of built up make-up, mascara and eyeliner mainly and give me a slightly cleaner base to work with to perform the rest of my night time skincare routine.
False eyelashes are something I’m wary of now, they can make you look too done up, fake and like you’ve just walked off the set of TOWIE circa 2011. But, when I heard about Kiss lashes, that are supposed to feel and look like natural lashes, I thought I’d give them a go. These are from the Featherlight collection and I tried out ‘Iconic’ the other night when I went out in Manchester. The ‘Iconic’ versions aren’t very thick and they don’t have a thick band that looks too much next to your actual lash line. I always have to trim my lashes down so I cut nearly a cm off the long ends of them to make them fit. I was really surprised by how soft and comfortable they were, they looked really, really natural and I was able to apply a small amount of mascara to make them blend into my actual eyelashes really easily. Normally, with false lashes mascara doesn’t go on very well and ends up looking clumpy but these were really lovely. So all in all, I was really happy with these lashes and I’d definitely recommend them to anyone who feels like they need something extra but they don’t want to go for the full on celebrity fake eyelashes look. They looked really soft and natural. They’re an American brand and are mostly stocked in Walmarts and that sort of thing but they are available in Boots over here priced at just under £5, which is also a bargain! Kiss Featherlight Lashes – £4.49*
Pretty Polly are a brand that are iconic for women’s leg wear and hosiery. Today I’m bringing you a little post all about their latest venture into nightwear and lingerie. It’s very picture heavy because I think the pictures say so much more than me rambling on. You can see the quality and the prettiness of them without me telling you!
Did anyone else take advantage of the InStyle & Murad collaboration code thingy that was winging it’s way around Twitter the other week? I snapped it up quicker than you could say ‘skincare’ and this little box of beauties was flying my way by the weekend. If you missed it, the offer was get this little kit worth £75 free when you bought anything else from the website, pretty good offer I thought! And, it got better. Postage was free. Amazing. I hate paying for postage, it’s really one of my biggest pet hates so I love when companies and brands offer free postage, it definitely makes me more inclined to purchase from them. I’ll be sharing my other purchase in a separate post because I’ve actually wanted to try it for ages and this offer spurred me on, but that’s for another day!
Summer is supposedly here and when the sun comes out I always find myself reaching for smaller bags than my usual Autumn Winter suitcases. I have a few favourites and they’re all quite teeny and I can just about fit my purse, phone and powder in there, but that’s all you really need for summer days isn’t it?
Recently, I’ve decided to create a little challenge for myself. A lipstick challenge of all things. I decided that I don’t wear lipstick enough, I’m definitely lazy with lippy, I’ll put it on once, if I do wear it at all, and then I won’t bother to reapply and it ends up looking a bit rubbish. So I decided I’d try and step out of my comfort zone a little bit and try and wear a nice bright lipstick (or lip product) every day for 5 days. Hence the 5 Day Lipstick Challenge. I’ll be documenting it on Instagram and I’ll do an update next week when it’s over, reviewing the lipsticks and letting you know how I got on!
The Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser is a new release this summer and is packed full of SPF 15 protection and long lasting moisture. This lovely product comes in 6 shades, I’ve got the second from palest, 01 Sand but it’s actually quite dark! So in hindsight, 00 Porcelain would have probably been a better fit but this one blends in fine and is perfect for the summer when I’ve got a bit more colour.
