Chanel, My No1#

All hayle to the one and only...It really IS bloody brilliant.
I don't usually buy things that are raved about (unless its anything by lush) but I've been looking for a new, slightly dewy foundation for a good few months and i hadn't found anything.
 I was going through customs and saw a big Chanel banner and i instantly thought of this foundation. It cost me £25.60, instead of the £31.66, i don't think i would have ever bought it if i hadn't have had that amount off it. It's by far my favorite foundation and i can see why it's so raved about. Go and get a sample people!

Salsa and Latino

While i was in Hammamet, Tunisia, myself and some friends decided to check out the nightlife. We went to two clubs and they were amazing. Not just for the music, the way they all danced. 
Usually when you go clubbing, you expect slightly dirty dancing,grinding and hammerd people jumping up and down (the very reason i don't usually go clubbing). But in Hammamet, they were all dancing Latino and salsa. It was so amazing to see Young people dancing really well, it was so cool!
We all tried our hand at the dancing but not knowing even the basic steps, we reverted back to the english ways, of jumping up and down hammerd.

It has inspired me to take salsa lessons, What has inspired you on holiday?

Glossy Box, bitterly disappointed

I arrived home from holiday and i was excited to see i had a glossy box waiting for me! It's always beautifully packaged, i can't nock that. But once again i was disappointed with what was inside.

1) The dermalogica rage i received, was all directed for mature skin so i am sorry to say i have no use for this.
2)Leighton Denny nail polish. Yay i love nail polish but will NEVER use this god awful colour. Yuck.
3) Robert Piguet eau de perfume samples. Tiny perfume samples? Really?!
4) Stila eye liner. Now i was excited about this, until i tried to use it! It's broken!!! It's one of those eye liners that you twist so no need for sharpeners but the twisty thing in it has broken and wont push the product up.

I really want to love it, but i don't! I'm not totally giving up on beauty boxes as i think they have great potential.

Any suggestions on a different box i should try?

Packing, the bane of my life.

So, This morning i have been trying to pack(I'm going on a girls holiday this weekend, for a week). I've only been abroad twice before so i would say I'm kinda new to this. It's impossible to fit everything in that, in a perfect world, i would like to take! So I'm asking for your tips and tricks to packing...Help!!!

Guys, I went to lush!

After my very good experience with my first ever two lush skincare items, i decided it would be a good idea to go back and try out more! What is it about lush, it's just so addictive! "Once you pop you can't stop!" I will be doing a review if any of these products are worthy of it :) I hope so!

I went mad on my toesies!

Hey chickens!
Ohhhh deeear what did i do?! I got a bit excited. I'm going on holiday next week and went mad with my barry's. I am fully aware my feet now look like a child aged 5, but i think its gunna look CUTE while I'm chilling on the beach. I love going on holiday around this time as summer is leaving  us, catching the last rays before it's all over for god knows how long!

Oh- and no one laugh at my feet please. I know. They're weird.

Bahoma Candles. yummy

So yesterday when i bought my third Bahoma candle, i realised I'm getting a little addicted to having gorgeous candles burning constantly. But whats wrong with that,eh?!  So i will probably be buying many more!
I really like this brand because the smell of the candle fills any room in a few minuets, they look simple and are cheap! £4.99 from Tkmax people! You won't catch me spending £20+ on a candle, no siree!

Spa Magik

 I received a sachet (50g) in my September glossy box(above is the full size) I neglected to use it for 3 weeks because my thoughts were "oh it's just another salt scrub" oooh noo. no no no. This is not just any old scrub, this is a SUPER SCRUB! No really, it is. Why you ask? Firstly i love the consistency, when you rub it into your skin it feels like any old salt scrub, but then the 'magik' happens. It turns into a lovely silky oil, that smells a-mazing and leaves your skin silky soft.

Another great thing about this product is it only has three ingredients in it -dead sea salts, coconut oil and vitamin E! This product claims to do a number of things...

Helps break down adipose tissue
Reduces cellulite
Detoxifies the body
Increases lymph flow
Improves blood circulation
Speeds up cell metabolism and stimulates cell regeneration
Relaxes the muscles
Soothes nerve endings

... but personally, i'm just happy with the silky skin and that gorge smell!

                              It can be bought from Debenhams and john Lewis for £13.60 for 500g :)

Sooooooooooo happy

So i thought i would do a bit more of a private post today...

I recently handed in my notice at a job i really didn't enjoy. It was good money but, it wasn't making me happy! I suck to it for 11 months (which i am very proud of saying i did give it a go) and i finally thought -what am i doing here?! Yes I'm earning money, but is money more important than my happiness?! No girls and boys it is not.
So i took the very risky strategy of handing my notice in without a job to go to. And yes i was peeing my pants. A lot of people didn't think it was a very wise decision but i went with my heart.

My last day was Thursday 6th oct and boy had i been waiting for that day for 10months 29 days. I had my first interview for the next day, and boy did i need it!

I absolutely loved the job i was going for, everyone was lovely, really great place, good location and money. Someone up there must have been pulling some strings for me, because they offered me the job on the spot!!! I still cant believe it. I couldn't have planned it any better!

Follow your heart, have faith and things will work out for you :)

The Primrose Bakery(Covent Garden)

As you all know, I'm a little addicted to cupcakes & baking. So naturally i wanted to visit my mecca! The Primrose Bakery has been around since 2004, they have two shops in London and their second cook book has just been released. In my opinion, their recipes are amazing and always come out perfectly. I was so excited to go there. The bakery is so cute, it's very small with only three tables and is decorated like an old vintage English bakery. If i lived closer i would definitely become a regular! I bought myself a few bits to remember my visit, an apron, bag and lolly!

London photo shoot day

My best friend, katie, finally managed to drag me on a photo shoot day. And I was surprised, I really enjoyed myself. I thought I wouldn't like it as I don't like being centre of attention, but it was great
!We went to Studio 52(near Covent garden) and spent 4 hours getting our make-up done, hair, nails, the shoot and choosing what pictures we wanted. We also had free wine which helped me to to relax while on the shoot... and get a bit giggly!
