LOTD - Modesty

Hello Dolls!
This is one of my fave lippies ever, Modesty by Mac

It is the perfect "Your lips but better colour"
It's a lovely warm brownish nude with a hint of coral, it matches the name perfectly, it's a modest everyday colour!

It's a cremesheen so it's lovely and moisturising and so creamy
It's quite a "grown up colour" & it is perfect for whacking on everyday

What do you girlies think?
Have you tried Modesty?

DIY - Shabby Chic Lacey Shelf Cover

Hello Dolls!

So I have a massive problem with mess & clutter, and my disorganised shelves where making me feel anxious haha
So I had a little creative idea, it was so easy & I have to share it with you
Hope you all try it!

I found an old lace curtain, you could use any curtain or material
I used 3 pin nails and hammered them into the sides of the shelve, that is the most strenuous part and it took two minutes
And then simply hooked the curtain over it

I obviously had to go to far with the girliness and safety pinned two pink hair bows

It looks a hundred times better, I'm so ashamed to show you the mess that is behind it!

Review - Miss Cole

Hello Dolls!
Something very exciting to write about here!

The other day I was sent some products from the lovely Jane at Miss Cole HQ
Ever heard of Miss cole?
I've seen it in Superdrug & the whole range has amazing packaging - definitely recommend a looky next time you pop in!

So I was very lucky to receive It's a sham - poo (shampoo) & Head start ( Conditioner)
These are ideal for colour treated or dry hair - My locks have been suffering allot recently from allot of curling
Both are sold at superdrug for £2.50 each & 300mls each - Bargain!

The brand motto/ catchphrase is - "Girls just want to have fun"
Very good words to live by in my opinion, and it really illustrates what this whole brand is about - Fun & girliness!

Packaging - I love this! Such a bright hot pink & The font is so girly & I love the really cute hair dryer & crown designs. It jazz's up my shower!

Scent - I think scent in hair products is so important - This smells so delicious! Very florally & fresh - Very similar scent to Juicy Couture's original perfume! And the scent lingered in my hair, a very nice waft of Miss Cole spreads out every time i swish my hair!

Product - I was a bit skeptical that a shampoo for dry hair could leave my hair heavy or greasy - but it cleansed it so nicely! Left feeling very soft & swishy
And the conditioner was lovely as well, very creamy & thick - it definitely sorted out my dry ends!
I think this could be a staple step in my hair routine for some time!

Over all I am very much loving this product!
A welcome change to my regular shampoo & hopefully will sort out my dry hair in the long term - I will keep you posted!
Definitely recommend this one girlies, & gifsets will be available for Christmas at Debenhams & House of Frazer - One will definitely be on my Christmas list!

Check out their website - It is so fun & cute!

July / August Favourites

Hey Dolls!

I have been so pants when it has come down to monthly favourites, do forgive me!
This is a little collection of things I have been loving lately, recently & during July & August

Confessions of an Heiress - Paris Hilton

I am all for light hearted, fluffy, whimsical reads - and this is the ultimate
I got this a few years ago and I love to dip into it now and then when ever I need advice of what an heiress would do - This book is very tongue in cheek
It's very picture heavy, no headaches from this one, totally recommend it if you're a Paris fan!

Steam Cream
If you read my post a couple of weeks ago, you will know I was kindly sent this
IT IS AMAZING! This is my new night cream & my skin has never looked better, I cannot see myself without this now!

Hard as nails - Sally Hanson
My nails are always peeling and just generally weak , but this is making all the difference!
I am so lazy at nails, but this is a perfect base or top coat!

Mac Lipglass - Underage
This is from my uber nude lip obsession, anyone watch Lollipop26's videos when she used to love this?
This is seriously Barry M's Marshmallow in opaque gloss form!
Quite hard to work with, and sometimes it can look really chalky, but this lovely mixed with a clear gloss or dabbed over any lipstick! Totally recommend this to the nude lippie gals out there!

Britney - Curious
Now school is starting, I am not wanting to waste the good perfume on boring days stuck in a classroom! This is a lovely perfume for every day, really powdery & florally, it's not sickly like the fantasy range!

VO5 - High Volume hairspray
This is amazing! This was £1.50 or something ridiculously cheap in boots, for 400ml! I have been using it every day & it is so far the best spray I have come across for creating volume! It has a lovely smell, just like Glamalot by soap & glory!

I will do a post on my voluminous hair routine soon, if you would like - This is my secret weapon!

Note - Sorry the lighting in the pictures is messed up - I started snapping away & it got dark in about five minutes, summer time is truly gone!

So that was my very late post!
What have you been loving? Any similar products to me?

Baby sparks has such a beautiful lilac shimmer in it!
