CEW (UK) Beauty Awards 2012 Box

So on Sunday past the Daily Mail had an offer in it's weekly magazine for a one-off Beauty Box.

I've always been intrigued by Beauty Boxes but due to the need to subscribe I've always steered clear, but seeing as the was a one time thing (£8.95 + postage) I went for it.

This is pretty picture heavy and I've not actually had the chance to try everything out yet but here we go...

This is a list detailing what was in the box, it said on the offer there was £50 worth of stuff, I'm not sure about that but it was definitely worth the money.

Here we have the contents in the pretty pink lid

Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Cream

Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare Cleanse & Polish

L'Occitane Immortelle Brightening Hand Care SPF15

Weleda Pomegranate Firming Day Cream

Percy & Reed No-Fuss Flawlessness Dry Conditioner

Elie Saab Le Parfum
(I did have a quick spray of this and it is lovely, going on the hunt for it tomorrow)

Nails Inc Porchester Square Nail Polish

Mont Blanc Legend Eau De Toilette

These items were chose as they were winners of the CEW (UK) Beauty Awards, I think the box has a pretty versatile selection, I look forward to trying all these items out.


  1. It's a brilliant beauty box! And loving the Nails Inc Porchester Square x

    1. I know! Always nice to get 1 you don't have. Hopefully try it later after I've had a play at the nails inc counter in town xo

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I know theyre a little out of date but I hope you still find them interesting.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, 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…

Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight

Hello lovelies!
Today I'm wearing Nail Lacquer UK - Turkish Delight. I'm a huge indie fan and I love that there are some brilliant UK indies out there.
Turkish Delight is a pink jelly, full of pink/purple circle glitters.  There's a stunning iridescent purple shimmer through it also.

I can't describe how stunning this is in real life and I struggled to capture it's beauty, this was the best I could manage with the bathroom lights, lol.

I reckon with the shimmer this would look fab over black!
P.S. Can't say I wasn't attracted to this polish purely for its name, hehe. xo
