Up first is one of my favourite online stores Laundry Boutique. If you're thinking of snapping up some pre party purchases then now is the perfect time as from Midnight tonight, until Midnight on Friday they have 15% off when you spend over £50 and Free P&P. 

Here's my edit of the beautiful things they  currently have online, so you can get your paws on them, in time for your next party: 


Blue Lace dress - £39 
Black dress with pleated bodice - £39 


Black scuba sweetheart neckline dress - £29

All of these outfits are a snip at under £40 and I feel a haul coming on!

L'oreal Colour Riche - Pure Reds

Red lipstick has the power to make the meekest girl feel like a bombshell, it has the power to make you feel like the sexiest girl in the room and can give you the confidence you didn't even know you had.

I believe every woman has a second identity, away from their work uniform or their daily mummy clothes, we all have that item of makeup or clothing that makes us feel like a million dollars. For me this item is red lipstick. I'm a little bit addicted to it and as of recent times I have actually lost count of how many I now own. 

I recently saw an advert for L'oreal Colour Riche Collection exclusive pure reds, I could not wait to get my hands on "Blakes pure red." 

The lipstick is enriched with jojoba oil which leaves my lips feeling super soft. I've been searching for my new favourite red after my beloved No7 one was discontinued and I have now given my heart away to a new love. 


Each week from now until Christmas I want to post about my "star products" This gains my first "star award" as a product that I would give a full 10 out of 10. 


Here's a swatch so you can get an idea of how the colour looks on myself. It's a very bright, pillar box red, perfect for wowing at any party and with christmas on its way, I know what I'll be carrying in my clutch bag. 

You can buy the L'oreal colour Riche exclusive reds from boots £6.99.

You can also find exclusive offers & discounts for boots at vouchercloud Here

Until Next Time

The Nars Sheer Glow Dupe...

Guys, it's here; The one we've all been searching for, the Nars sheer glow dupe! 

I adore sheer glow and I would wear it every day of my life if it were possible and in my budget, but sadly a foundation that costs £30+ is something I want to savour and can't bare to wear every day.

Recently I nipped to boots to hunt down a new daily foundation to take the place of my beloved sheer glow and stumbled upon the perfect daily replacement! 

I used the foundation for a week and I couldn't believe how much I loved it, I even had compliments about how dewy and healthy my skin looked. Even better than that it's only £9.99. 

What is it I hear you cry? 


The lowdown: 
L'oreal nude magique Eau de teint claims to be as light as water. You only need to apply a small amount as a little goes a long way! If you like a full coverage foundation then back away, because this isn't the foundation for you, but if you want a dewy, non greasy, barely there look then I'd totally recommend it! 


I went for colour 100 which is porcelain and you can see in my swatches below its a pretty good colour match for Nars sheer glow in Mont Blanc. 


I'm pretty pleased with my new find and as a little goes a long way, the pretty frosted bottle will be with me for a while, but at £10 a pop I won't begrudge my new treat.

What's your favourite foundation? 

Until Next Time

Let's Go Lashes - Review


I'm not the greatest fan of strip lashes, so when I was offered the chance to try some Lets Go Lashes, I have to admit I was sceptical of their claims of an easy, no fuss application. 

The low down - 
"Let’s Go Lashes are super fast strip lashes, ideal for women who haven’t tried falsies before through to more experienced strip lash wearers. The easy, no-fuss application mean that there’s no need for any tinting or mascara to create an amazing look and feel.
With a huge range of thickness, lengths and colour, there is a style to suit every eye, hair and skin colour. The 40 designs make up four fabulous ranges – Flirt, Tease, Temptress and Heartbreaker –  so there’s is a style perfect for any occasion just in time for the party season."
The Verdict - 
I'm a massive newbie when it comes to strip lashes, having preferred individual lashes in the past, I actually couldn't wait to have a go at a new brand and see just how easy they could be. 


Application was really easy, all I had to do was apply the glue to the lashes, wait 30-60 seconds until the glue became tacky and then hold them steady, just above my lash line. 
The name of the lashes that I was sent was No3 in Flirt and I have to say as soon as I applied the lashes, my eyes felt super flirty and fluttery! 


The length and volume of the lashes was amazing and instantly showed off my eyes. I wore the lashes out and about all day and had no problem with them falling off or raising in the corners like I had experienced in the past. 

When I removed the lashes, they came off easily and were in good enough condition to use all over again. 

What more could you want from a pair of lashes?

Even better the lovely people at Nouveau lashes are giving you guys an absolute bargain so you can stock up on their fab lashes in time for the Christmas party season! 



Until Next Time
