Hello sweeties. There are two great mascaras I have really enjoyed using lately as they work so well together.

This mascara was sent to me by a pr as a gift. This is a high impact mascara. By that I mean it is an intensely pigmented black (although it does also come in black/brown). My lashes look thicker and longer with this product. It gives my eyes a flirty, wide awake appearance. I find it to be very buildable without clumping. I have added many layers for more drama at times and it works fantastic for that.

So that's the good stuff. I find that pretty much any mascara I use smudges under my eyes including this one. Also you have to be quite careful when you apply this mascara to your top lashes especially if they are long because it's easy to get this on your lids. So annoying if you spend ages applying eye make-up. If you are careful then it shouldn't be an issue.


This mascara has added fibres to give length to the lashes. A product designed for clump-free, smudge and tear proof lashes.

For my top lashes this product didn't do much at all. My lashes were nicely separated, but I didn't find it very lengthening. I prefer more volume, but I can't fault this mascara for that is that is not it's purpose.

I do however find this product to work fantastically on my bottom lashes. It separates them and gives a nice length without any smudging at all.

So I hope I have helped you to find at least one mascara here that appeals to you.

Let me know your favourite volumising and bottom lash mascaras in the comments below.

Love to you all

Hey beauties! Here are some fabulously scented products I have discovered at bargain prices for you to enjoy in the bath or shower.

I picked this up in the 99p Store and OMG it smells divine. Coconut fans rejoice as this gorgeously scented shower cream smoothes over your body.

I believe my friend gave this to me in a gift set for my birthday, but they also sell it in Poundland linked above. I don't usually like rose scents, but this product has a very creamy, baby soft smell.

I love Nivea skincare. It's a brand I would use time and time again. These shower creams feel lovely and moisturising on the skin.


This shower cream feels nice on the skin. This has a slight spice scent with the ginger, but it's not strong and overpowering. I picked this up in my Tesco garage, but it's reduced at the moment to £1 in Boots.


The scent of this product is amazing. If you like strawberry scents you will want to eat yourself after using this product.


To be honest I saw this in the baby section and couldn't resist trying it out. I love Frozen and so why not.

Both of these products were from the 99p Store. They cleansed my skin well and added a bit of moisture, but perhaps not as much as the Nivea products. These can be used for the bath too.

I hope you find something here you like to enjoy pampering yourself or just for fun to make you smile. At these bargain prices why not!

Love to you all

Hey everyone and welcome to my blog. In this post I have a fashion accessory to show you that is also super handy. Read on to find out why :)

I met the lovely Sue Seddon at the BLOGGERS LOVE LFW GIFTING LOUNGE who has designed the Kease gadget as a solution to those 'I can't find my keys' moments we all have. Not great when you are in a hurry wanting to drive somewhere or are standing in the rain or snow looking through the abyss that seems to be your handbag.

This super affordable stress reliever comes in 3 designs with a choice of 6 colours which were so hard to choose from when I was asked to pick one out as they are also great fashion accessories.

Just push the Kease onto bag pockets, books or files or even your clothing such as waistbands or jeans pockets.

I think this product would make a great gift also. Rather then just being a key ring accessory this design actually has a purpose to make your life a little easier every day. Sometimes the simple things are the best!

Would you or have you tried out this fashionable handy gadget? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Love to you all

Hello beauties. I have a skincare product to share with you today for dry damaged skin.

I met Cloud 9 Skin Solutions at the BLOGGERS LOVE LFW GIFTING LOUNGE earlier this year. 

Cloud 9 have a great range of products all designed to provide solutions to specific skin concerns such as cellulite, varicose veins, scar minimising, spot clearing and the above for dry damaged skin.

Tranquility is a skincare product formulated to ease red, irritated and scaly skin and is a natural alternative to steroid topical creams. While softening the skin and improving elasticity it is safe to use on both face and body.

It can also help to ease skin discomforts such as eczema and psoriasis.

Apply it twice daily after cleansing for a minimum of 3 months to see optimal results.

The cream is pink in tone, but blends into the skin without any staining on skin or clothing.

Occasionally my boyfriend has flare ups on his skin that I think may be psoriasis, but I am not an expert on this condition so I can't be certain. I told him to use this cream on those specific irritated skin areas and within a few weeks they were gone.

Coincidence or not I think this product is worth a try if you suffer with extremely dry skin or either of the conditions mentioned above.

Please consult with your doctor if you are concerned that this product may not be right for you though as I don't want to recommend this product to anyone whom it may not be suitable for.

Let me know in the comments below which products you have tried from the Cloud 9 Skin Solutions skincare range with you specific skin concern and your thoughts.

Love to you all

Hi my loves and happy Sunday! I have been trying out this camouflage concealer that beauty bloggers were asked if they wanted to try out on Twitter and and it's actually pretty good so I thought I would share my thoughts with you.

The idea of these sample kits are to allow you to try a variety of shades before committing to a full size cover cream jar only to find the shade doesn't suit your natural skin tone. A great idea to save wasting money.

There are 12 shades in each kit along with 2 finishing powders (translucent and dusk) that are included in all of the kits no matter which tones of light (paler skin), medium (darker or suntanned skin) or dark (very dark skin) you choose. I chose the light kit as I am very pale.

I was very surprised to find that the shade Natural suited me the most as I thought perhaps one of the top four shades (cream, vanilla, wheat or natural light) may suit me better. 

I found that the translucent powder was okay, but that other powders I have work just as well too.

I did find that the formula worked well after covering most blemishes, but I do have a couple of annoying red veins that no concealer has ever managed to cover including this one. As a regular concealer I would say this covers very well, but because it did not cover all of my problem areas ie red veins I can not be certain it would work well for all as a camouflage concealer.

It has a soft matte finish that did not cling to my dry areas which other concealers have in the past. It is also said to be waterproof.

Here are the problem areas it is meant to cover:

Birthmarks, Burn scars, Scars, Age spots, Moles, Broken capillaries, Varicose veins, Acne marks, Tattoos, Rosacea, Portwine stains, Vitiligo, Permanent pigmentation and Eczema.

The kits themselves I think are a great idea. More make-up companies should put sample kits out there for foundations and powders also so that customers will more often come back if they are able to find their perfect shade straight away from their kit.

I would love to know how any of you find this product to work for you. Does it cover your problems areas well? Please comments below along with your specific skin concerns so that others can see how this product may work for them too.

Love to you all

Hello lovelies. I am back with another bargainous haul as promised, but things are selling out fast so check out my Everything 5 Pounds summer picks below.

Two prints of the same style got deleted somehow from my computer, but I will link them here:

One was missing from my order too which will be sent on to me hopefully:

I really struggle with picking up maxi dresses as I am just about 5ft 3 inches tall. I chose these designs as they are the perfect length for me even in flats. Do check out the lengths in this style of maxi though when browsing as some are longer than the ones I have chosen and some measure from shoulder to hem or centre of back to hem. Each of these maxi dresses have light padding which I would actually prefer not to have as they don't fill the whole cup and are not removable. The straps are adjustable though.

This dress is just gorgeous. It swings a little as you move which makes it all the more girly. The crochet insert doesn't really show off much flesh at all if that's something that would worry you. These straps are adjustable. I am so glad I picked these up.

These are obviously great for the beach or poolside, but I just wanted them as lightweight cardigan alternatives for the summer. They look great tied up or left open.

These joggers are great for that smart casual summer option to wear with heels or summer sandals. Because they have the cuffed bottoms they will look great with both.

So that's it for my superb Everything 5 Pounds haul. I hope you find something you like here lovelies and happy shopping!

Love to you all

Hey beauties! I have missed blogging for you and hope that you are happy to see me back. Thanks to those who have stuck with me and welcome to those who are new to my blog. As afore mentioned I have had a tough time of late which meant that blogging was not an option for me, but I am back now and very keen to get back into the swing of things.

Recently I have been finding a few bargains online which I can't resist sharing with you.

These bargain dresses are just £12 from Boohoo, but I managed to get them for less than £10 each with a discount at the time.

I am quite self conscious about my arms and find wearing dresses in the summer quite hard as I always want to cover my arms up. These dresses however are great as they sit lovely around the top of the arms with enough stretch to not feel tight or give a dreaded bulge.

They can be worn very cute with the sleeves up in a babydoll dress style as shown in the rust and black shades or more sexy off the shoulder as shown in the cobalt to show off your collar bone. The model in the link above shows it worn off the shoulder and there is a video if you want to see how it moves.

If this came in more colours I would definitely buy them.

A little tip I would say with this dress is to maybe size down. I am usually a size 10, but I have found in the past with some Boohoo dresses that they are quite big on me so I got these in a size 8 and they are perfect.

Boohoo always have great discounts so keep an eye out for those and maybe sign up to their newsletter so you don't miss out.

I have another bargain haul coming too :)

Let me know your great Boohoo finds in the comments below.

Love to you all

Vicky xx
