My holidays are coming to an end rather rapidly and before I have to cut my nails to a sensible length and remove all traces of nail polish I thought I'd have a go at blinging them up! I saw how pretty the gold glitter looked on Make Me Blushhh's blog and wanted to give it a go. Here's the result...I was worried they'd look a bit garish but the gold glitter is quite subtle but adds a nice girly touch. On MMB's nails she used polish from Sephora a store we no longer have in the UK so after visiting the usual high-street haunts I ended up having to buy my polish on eBay (seller: kissnmakeupx). It only cost £2.75 and came through the post very quickly.

Hope you like it. Ax

Easily pleased

It was only this morning I thought to myself I needed to get long foam applicators so I'm not constantly trying to dislodge them from the bottom of my pot. Well look what I found from Muji...No more messy pot and no more rummaging to find the applicator that matches the eyeshadow. It reminds of the coloured pencils that stack into one I had in school over 15 years ago!
Ah I'm so easily pleased!

Have you come across any gadgets that make life easier and tidier?

Birthday Treats

It was my birthday last week and I was lucky enough to receive some beauty products and money to buy beauty products! Here are some of them... I forgot to include the chocolate face mask from Taiwan that A got me.
I was given Burt's Bees hand lotion and the Johnson's baby powder, no I do not have a baby! I mentioned in passing that I like the smell of the talc. I was also given some money and bought two products from Bare Minerals (SPF 15 Foundation and Prime Time foundation primer) and a lipbalm from Burt's Bees. 

I really love the Burt's Bees hand lotion. The packaging is cute and the smell of banana is so delicious it makes you want to lick your fingers! I like the consistancy of the lotion, when you dip your finger in to get a scoop it's thick and creamy and leaves a indentation which I find quite satisfying! At first it feels a little oily but this soon disappears after a few seconds of rubbing it in it. I've been doing a lot of DIY lately, this has come in handy.  

The Burt's Bees lipbalm is refreshing as it has peppermint in it. I quite like it but I think it takes time to get use to the tingling sensation on your lips. 

Review on the other products later.
