Primark “Rock Chic” Accessory Haul!

September 30, 2013
Primark Accessories Rock Chick

I’d actually only planned on popping in to pick up some £5 fake uggs to laze about in, but I couldn’t help a tiny little look at the other bargains on offer! Although I frown in despair when I see a fashionista sporting a bullet belt or a trvegrym band shirt that they’ve never heard of, I do love being able to pick up “alternative” accessories at high street prices! Okay so I only really wanted the black and silver…

Facemask Friday – Superfruits Exfoliating Mask

September 27, 2013
superdrug superfruits facemask

  We all love a multi-tasker right? Well this facemask is something I’ve never come across before, but when you think about it it just makes perfect sense! The mask contains ground up strawberry seeds so as you apply it you have a built in exfoliator! The scent of this alone is worth raving on about, a mix of strawberry, blueberry, cranberry and raspberry that doesn’t feel synthetic and isn’t too overpowering once it’s on your face. It dried in…

O.P.I Tiny Treats

September 26, 2013
OPI Tiny Treats

It took me a while to get into O.P.I. As a lover of a bargain I always thought the RRP of £13.95 for a single polish was a bit much, but after dipping my toe(nails!) into the range I’ve now found myself a bit of an addict and the polishes worth every penny! My latest purchase was this adorable Tiny Treats set containing mini 3.75ml ChipSkip, Nail Envy Natural Nail Strengthener and RapiDry Top Coat, a 30ml Expert Touch Lacquer Remover and…

A mini haul and some unsuccessful shopping!

September 23, 2013
Rockgoddess, Halloween 2013

I had to pop to my local shopping mall today to pick up a birthday card and present for my sister and though I’m trying to save money (and thus stop buying lots of make-up!) I promised myself one treat. I headed straight for Sally and peered helplessly at the O.P.I stand till a clerk came to ask if I needed help. Seems this was due on today’s delivery but she “wouldn’t know till she had sorted it all, so…

Avon Naturals Chamomile and Aloe Vera Care and Repair Conditioning Balm

September 23, 2013
avon hair

I put my hair through hell with the amount of bleach and dye it takes to keep it this blue, so I turn to nourishing treatments for damaged hair at least once a week to try and keep it in good condition. If you’ve ever had extreme hair colour (or style for that matter – mohawks do a hell-a-lot-a damage too!) you will be familiar with the dry ends, dull colour fade and other assorted unwanted side effects of fabulous…

Facemask Friday – Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask

September 20, 2013
Amie spring clean clay face mask

  My collection of face-masks is quickly overwhelming the storage space I have set aside for them, so in an attempt to start using them more often (I’m sure my skin will thank me!) I’ve decided to try a different one every Friday to review for you all! First up is the Amie SPRING CLEAN Cooling Clay Mask. I received this in my last Latest in Beauty Little Beauty Box (which Amie reviewed here). I’ve been eager to try out this brand for…

Avon Naturals – Spiced Orange & Ginger

September 20, 2013
Avon naturals spiced orange and gingers body lotion, shower gel and fragrance spritz

Autumn is definitely here, and the first thing it makes me crave is thick warm comforting scents. The newest fragrance from Avon Naturals seemed to promise just that with it’s creamy apricot colour and image of a juicy orange, cinnamon sticks, star anais and ginger. The scent is only available as hand & body lotion, shower gel and fragrance spritz, which is minimal considering their last naturals scent releases spread across haircare and body whips too. I’m a big fan…

How do you like your eggs in the morning? – Baked with Mushrooms!

September 20, 2013

No make up here today, just a lovely easy to make Breakfast recipe! Since working from home with Brains for his Web Design and Development company BIOSTALL, I have the luxury of actually having cooked breakfast in the morning should I so desire. I love cooking and I especially love baking so I’m always trying out new recipes and throwing stuff together to see what happens. So here is a recipe I tried for the first time the other day…

Thanks Mister Postman – Nip + Fab

September 19, 2013

I recently tried out the Nip + Fab dry leg fix, after bagging some with a magazine. I love this so much that when it was gone, I had to order some more! At the same time, I accidentally ordered the Skin Fix Web Exclusive Kit for £7.99 not to mention that it was also 20% off too. About two days ago, my order came. Instead of my dry leg fix, I ended up with dry hand fix! Feeling annoyed…
