My nail varnish collection ox

Im not quite sure how ive managed to gather so many nail varnishes over the years but I have! There are more bottles behind the bottles at the front because it would of been hard to fit them all in if id of shown them all clearly. Most of them are bought by me or as gifts on Birthdays or Christmas but the odd few have been given to me for example my Moms friend has given me a couple. 
I love nail varnishes and I always have my nails painted but I dont use alot of them! As much as I love having lots of variety and choices, most of these have just got a bit left in but I do want to get rid of alot of them because I need the room however I never throw things away when they have some use left I hate waste. 

At the moment I just keep them in cosmetics bags, id prefer to have the in a box if I had the room lol! 
Do any of you have a big collection of nail varnishes? How do you store them?

Eldora handmade/humar hair?? eyelashes ox

A while ago I won these Eldora eyelashes on a blog giveaway, I had never heard of Eldora eyelashes before and they are actually handmade! Also they are real hair which is kind of creepy, I think its put me off wearing them because I havent got round to trying them yet and considering I never leave the house without a pair on shows somethings up lol! I do love how natural they look because you can tell when you get thick black eyelashes theyre going to look very fake on. 
They came with a little bottle of glue which looks like once its opened its hard to keep sealed but I have other glues I can use if it dries up or if its not sticky enough. 
You can see the Eldora online shop HERE! most of their eyelashes are on sale for about £4-£5.

Has anyone tried this make of eyelashes before, what do you think of the human hair part?

Sienna tan updated review ox

So a couple of months ago I won a Sienna tan set including a bottle of their gradual tan on Facebook and you can see this post and details on how I won HERE! but I won another bottle of the gradual tan off the Sienna Facebook page recently and decided to do an update of my opinion on the tan after almost finishing one bottle!
I actually do love this tan! Sienna is quite a well known tan brand and although I have used many different tans before apart from St tropez I always buy cheap tans where as this ranges at about £15 a bottle! I would say it is worth it as you pay that price for rubbish tans! When ive run out of both bottles im sure I will be buying more :)
you can see my old post on the other tans I use HERE!

Anyway my thoughts on this tan are very positive! It looks like a body lotion or cream as its just plain white but over 6 hours it gets darker so its perfect to use the night before or the morning of a day where youre going on the night time because it saves time later on! I usually put another coat on a few hours later but one coats enough for a natural bronzed look!

Head candy 'Treat me right' ox

I love the smell of these shampoo and conditioners by Head Candy but have never bought them because of how cheap they are as I always think they will be no good at 89p each from Home bargains. But my sister has used them in the past so I thought they must be alright, I havent used them yet but will update when I have!

Have any of you tried Head Candy?

Fevour cosmetics lipgloss in Ish pink ox

A while back I won a Fevour  lipgloss on Jennas blog which you can see HERE! but as it came from the US I had to wait a while because it got lost but it was worth the wait!
I love this lipgloss, the colour and the smell and taste. Its got a really pretty glittery tinge to it which is gorgeous.
 You can see the Fevour website HERE! and the link to lip gloss HERE! but in the UK it would be easier to buy Fevour from HERE! but theres not much of a range of products on this site. 

This lipgloss is in shade Ish Pink which retails at $18 which is about £11. 
Their products are cruelty free so its worth the price.

I love the colour and shine!

You can really see the shine and glittery tinge in it here.

My little MUA collection ox

I always buy MUA from Superdrug either online or in store but when they reach 35,000 likes on Facebook there's a fab offer of free shipping and 35% off so I will be ordering from there for sure :) If you don't already like MUA on Facebook you can do so HERE! and HERE! is their website.

I love the pallette its just fab!  I highly recommend it!
The mascara is amazing for £1, you can spend loads on high end mascara and theyre no better!
The liquid liner has become my new best friend!
The bronzer is also brilliant, such a bargain!
See my other posts on some of these products HERE! and HERE!

Ive used the pink (shade 4) lipstick alot and love it but havent tried the other yet.

I havent tried the nail varnishes yet buy I love the colours and have read good reviews on them, people have said how you need a few coats for a good colour but I always put 2-3 coats of polish on anyway!

I think its so crazy how all of these costs £11 which wouldnt even but 1 MAC lipstick! I love MAC but cheaper prices always win me over! I also think its crazy that about 2 months ago I only owned one thing my MUA and now I own more products of this brand that any other brand!
I will be doing reviews on everything I havent used yet once I have :)

Matis lip balm ox

I made a post when I first received this as prize and you can see that HERE!
This is just a quick post to say ive used this alot since I first got it and its actually quite good! It tastes lovely and does make your lips feel very soft.

Its clear to can be applied over lipstick too.

Redken colour extend radiant 10 ox

Sometimes I order/request samples from sites and forget about doing it! So when I received this in the post this week I honestly couldnt tell you where it came from :|

Butttt I used it last night after I washed my hair (it can be used on dry or damp hair) and it smells really really nice! Its for coloured hair and I have had ombre hair done so I used it mainly on the ends of my hair and the ends do feel nice than normal but ill carry on using it to see if it has any lasting effect.

The large bottles retail around £15 and upwards.  
This is what its said to do:
1. Strengthens the fiber
2. Shields from environmental aggressors 
3. Provides long lasting moisture
4. Detangles
5. Softens
6. Nourishes dry ends 
7. Restores vibrancy
8. Improves manageability
9. Reduces frizz and fly-aways 
10.Infuses shine

Little soap suds ox

Recently I won a competition on Little soap suds twitter. Soap suds are a

"Little business based in Glasgow offering handmade dessert & sweet flavoured soaps & bath products"

I was really excited to of won as their soaps looked amazing!  I was hoping to get a few more soaps but im hardly one to complain when they were free, its just that the soaps looked so yummy!
You can see Little soap suds twitter HERE! and facebook HERE!

I received these 2 little treats! They look so real, especially the cookie, I cant wait to use them both but I dont want to ruin them! The soap on the left is really big so hopefully will last for ages.

Superdrug haul ox

This is the second time ive ordered from Superdrug whilst their free delivery offer has been on!
I just find it much more convenient for me to get some bits that I need without having to go to the shops. You can see Superdrugs website HERE! if you fancy a bit of online shopping :) the free delivery offers on until the 4th December. 

Excuse the upside down photo! I love carmex and when I ordered this it was on offer for £1.27 but its gone back up to £2.55 now. I always use carmex and even more so in the winter so I had to grab this while it was on offer. The cotton buds are something I use everyday so 300 for just 55p seemed like a good bargain to me!

These were buy one get one free, the toner was £2.99 and the eye make up remover was £3.39 so it cost £3.39 for both which is really good for Simple. Silly me didnt read it properly and thought the eye make up remover was a lotion but its not! Never mind..

Ive recently started using MUA and bought my first item by them which was a lipstick about a month ago. I wasnt that impressed as it seemed really liquidy on my lips but its grown on me now and I have since bought, eyeliner, mascara, bronzer and now these by MUA. The nail varnish was £1 and is shade 4. The pallete was on offer for £3 but is now back to £4.

As you can see ive already used a few of these. Last weekend when I went out I had to try some of these colours and they lasted on my skin really well and looked fab! I love them and can see myself using this up quite fast.

The smell of this is amazing, I havent used it yet but I cant wait to! Its so fruity and hopefully its a showel gel that gets really lathered up, I hate shower gel that doesnt! 

All together I spent £10.10 saving £3 on postage :) I love free delivery!

My dream watch! ox

I really dont know what it is about Michael Kors watches, ive never really been interested in watches although New Look and River Island ones have always been pretty but since I first saw a Michael Kors watch ive just fell in love! I especially love this one, its a hefty £171!

Its not really expensive as far as designer watches go and it would definatly be an investment piece but Its way out of my price range and I just cant afford it! You can see this watch on the Michael Kors website HERE!
Does anyone know any similar dupes for much cheaper? Have any of you got a Michael Kors watch or other designer watch? Was it worth the money? Let me know :)

Mini superdrug haul ox

At the moment Superdrug have free delivery on until the 24th of October so I thought I might aswell get a few bits that I need! NYC website HERE! the MUA website HERE! and the Superdrug website HERE! 
I bought an MUA bronzer, liquid eyeliner and mascara for £1 each! What a bargain and an NYC brown eyebrow pencil for £1.99 which is also a bargain because the pencils twice the size of most brow pencils.

I havent used the mascara yet but ive heard nothing but good things! Ive now used the mascara and I am impressed! For just £1 its amazing, it shows up really well and doesnt go clumpy or bitty like some mascaras often do. Bargain!

The bronzers not too dark as I wanted a lighter one for the winter. At a cost of just £1 its the perfect colour for me and price!

This eyebrow pencil was £1.99 and considering how long it is its a real bargain, its going to last forever!

The eyeliner is great because you can get a really fine line with it. It also doesnt come off easy which is great! Ive used it a few times now and love it!
