Burt's Bees Grab Bag

So on Saturday a friend posted on facebook that Burt's Bees were doing Grab Bags with £55 worth of products for £20 so how could I resist?

To top it off it arrived today (3 days later).


All I can say is Wow!  I'm impressed!  What a haul!


Here we have Honey & Orange Wax body lotion and Milk & Honey body lotion.  Edible doesn't even begin to describe!  Can't wait to try this out.


This seems to be a collection called Radiance.  I got an exfoliating body wash with royal jelly & jojoba beads, day cream with royal jelly and night cream with royal jelly,
Took me a minute or so to figure out the smell then I got it, rock shandy! Well the body wash and day cream do, not sure about the night cream, there's something else there but maybe it's just the formula.


Left: Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar beet Shampoo & Conditioner
Right: Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub and Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream.

The Grapefruit & Sugar Beet stuff does have a mild grapefruit smell but it'll probably be better activated with water.

Peach & Willowbark is your bog standard peach sent, like a St Ives scrub.

Soap Bark & Chamomile has a fairly sweet smell, kind of reminds me of sweetie cigarettes.


At the top is a black wallet with yellow lining and a tiny mirror though I'm not really sure what it's all about.
A Rosemary Mint Shampoo Bar which as described has a minty herbal fragrance.  Having used Lush's shampoo bars before I look forward to comparing this though I hope I don't fall in live with it as it doesn't seem to be in their current line.
2 lip shimmers in Rhubarb & Watermelon.  Strange thing is they taste like mint, what the frack? I was looking forward to juicy sharp Rhubarb and super fresh Watermelon.  Nice colours but disappointed by the taste.

Finally Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme which wasn't actually in the Grab Bag, I in fact bought it to avoid postage costs.  It seems to be of the same scent as Lush's Lemony Flutter though a different texture, a definite winner me thinks

Overall I'm very pleased with my Grab bag, it's the perfect opportunity to try out new products (and there's still some available).
Must remember to keep an eye out for more offers like this =)

I'm trying.

Hi! So I've been trying my damnedest to keep this blog going. And I'm not doing very well. I had drafted some posts a while back (which I will still go ahead and post). I never got round to posting them at the time because I had an iPhone and the app just didn't want to work for me.
I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting. So what's been happening since I last posted?  Well I met a guy (on Tinder of all places), we got engaged last November (I'll do a proper post on this), and we got marries this September!  We enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon in Japan and for the past month its been back to reality. I am going to change this blog a bit.  Before it could have always been classified as a beauty blog. Now I think it'll be more of an eclectic blog (by the way check out She's Eclectic one of my all time favourite bloggers). Anyway,  sorry about all the words and lack of pictures bit I hope to rectify that soon. Bye for now.

Money Smart Nail Art Competition Entry

Hi all!
Wow!  I'm really shocked, MoneySupermarket.com have invited me to participate in their Money Smart Nail Art Bloggers Competition.  This means I am in with the chance to win a prize worth £300, how amazing would that be!


Anyway for my regular followers you will know that I'm mad on leopard print!  So I thought what better design to do a tutorial on.  
Materials Required: Base Coat - I use OPI Matte Nail Envy Selection of polishes - cremes are best for opacity but you can use glitters if you build them up Nail Art pen or Dotting Tool  Top Coat - I use Seche Vite

Paint your nails with the base coat to protect your nail from staining (I also find that Nail Envy encourages nail growth). *A good tip is before you start, wipe your nails with some nail polish remover, this is called squeaking the nail, it will remove any excess oil, making your mani last longer.

Paint your nails your chosen colours, any colours work but I've chose a few of the Barry M Gellies (which are c…

Pastel Polka Dots

Hello lovelies!
A lazy Friday night in resulted in playing with polish and with studs. 

Polishes used: Lime Crime - Parfait Day Treasures By Tan - Gramma Cupcake

I was in the mood for some spring pastels to brighten up this horrid grey weather we've been suffering recently. 

I added the studs as an afterthought, I was going to attempt some freehand art but I love how these turned out.
