November Favorites!

Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser (£5.99)

I don't know why I stopped using this daily, but I'm so happy I rediscovered it this month!  I've raved about this so much previously on this blog that I wont go into too much detail, but its done an amazing job at saving my skin after battling with the elements over the past few weeks and I will continue to use it over the colder months.

The Body Shop Cucumber Freshening water (£4.00)

I just love using this as a quick, easy and cheap way to remove my make up. It does the job perfectly! 

Fit Me Foundation (£7.99)

I'm so happy I ordered a sample of this! I've only been using for a few days but I love it! I love a light coverage and this just suits me perfectly - Expect a full review soon!

Chit Chat Highlighter (£1.00)

This works perfectly and is amazingly priced at just a pound! 

Miss Sporty Nail Expert Manicure (£2.29)

I wasn't expecting too much from this but I thing its great! I wont give away too much but expect a post soon.

Look Beauty Double Hit Lip (£8.00)

These are worth every penny, I cant wait to get my hands on more shades!

What products have you been loving this month?

November Empties..

I feels like I haven't posted in forever! My last post was a whole five days ago which is pretty odd for me Although I think if you're a British blogger especially you may be with me when it comes to lighting issues, Unless I'm back by 3pm at the latest there is no chance for getting a descent picture, and of course the days I go to take them in buck the sky is grey and miserable! But enough on my misfortunes with our current weather situation, Can you believe that in just a couple of sleeps the Christmas decorations will start to go up!? I bet you every blogger out there will say a line as cliché as that, but its true! Every year I promise myself I will be more prepared for Christmas last year, although I still end up running around like a headless chicken on Christmas Eve! Its not good..

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish (£5/75ml)

I quite liked this polish which was given to me in a gift set last Christmas. Normally I prefer to use something a bit harsher but this lovely to use and I would consider picking up another for those days were I want to use something softer.

Soap and Glory The Daily Smooth Body Butter (£8.50/250ml)

I love the smell of this one, for what it is I do feel £8.50 is a little on the expensive side but I'm tempted to pick up a little bottle of the body spray it smells like since its only £3.50 for 100ml! Perfect handbag size!

Garnier Body Intensive 7 days refreshing gel with peach (£4.99/400ml)

I really loved using this product, It smells lovely, leaves your skin feeling great and lasts forever! At £4.99 its great value plus its always on offer. Personally after trying both of these '7 days' products I do favour the body lotions - But then again maybe that's because I love Cocoa butter!

Jergens Ultra Hydrating body moisturiser (£3.49/200ml)

This month I've been on a little mission to use all my half full body moisturisers which is why I finally used this up. Since Jergens have had a bit of a rebrand so I have linked to their product I'm trying at the moment because I couldn't find this online. Personally I'm not a massive fan, Dont get me wrong I dont mind the products and they work for my skin - I just feel I can find ones which perform better at a lower price. I just felt like this one wasnt anything special.

Original Source shower gel  Raspberry & Vanilla milk (£2.30/250ml)

I'm happy I only paid a pound of this to be honest, I loved the smell of it I just felt the texture was too runny and I went through the product too quickly.

Tesco Sensitive Face wash (£1.29/150ml)

I brought this ages ago so figured its about time I threw it out. From what I remembered I really liked it (I had used over 3/4's) If you looking for just a cheap simple face wash this may be worth looking up

Naked Skin Perfect Getaway Cream Cleanser (£4.49/200ml)

I really liked this and would snap a couple right away if I spotted it on offer!

Dual Action Moisturiser (£3.59/100ml)

I recall liking this at the time, but again its one of those products I feel I need to get rid off because its been stitting around a while. I'd recommend this if you have blemish prone skin but personally I wont be buying again as I'm trying to use more sensitive products.

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser (£5.99/200ml)

I love this product! Its been my favourite cleanser for a while now and I find no matter what I use I always come back to it! I even cut this open to get the most out of it..I managed another five washes!

Vo5 Strong Hold Hairspray (£3.05/400ml)

This lasted me over a year! Fair enough I don't wear hairspray everyday, but its hardly a rare occurrence. I really liked this product and will be buying again!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Light and Blonde (£3.99/200ml)

I've never been a huge fan of dry shampoos but love this stuff, Its worth a try if you're scared of being left with a white scalp.

Tresemme Iron and Hold spray (£4.80/250ml)

I picked this stuff up for 10p and loved it! I just hope that this new bottle contains the same product!

Impulse Tease (£1.99/75ml)

I'm not a huge fan of body sprays but somehow have loads?! This was okay I guess, but I wont be buying again.

Kleenx Facial Cloths (£1.99/30)

I really like these cloths and pretty much use them for everything!

I need to stop using/buying so much these posts are always so long! What have you guys been using up this month?

Free Models Own in More!

I was really surprised to see this great freebie in More magazine today, Normally when I post about these types of offers they're in really over priced magazines which sometimes make the offer seem almost not worth it. But More retails at just £1.50 and it's jam packed with offers!
You get a choice of two nail polishes; Nude Beige (pictured above) and Raspberry Crush along with two lip products; a red and a pinky shade although I didn't manage to get their names. Below are some of the offers More also had to offer, not bad for under £2!
If you want to pick up your own copy of More be quick because the next issues out on the 27th!

Get yourself over to Internacionale!

This is why I love twitter - How else would I know about this amazing deal from Internacionale?! From 9am today - midnight they will be offering these lovely party shoes for just a penny (with free P&P) Although I'll reckon they'll be gone long before then! I'm already up and waiting for 9am. I'll update you guys If i'm lucky enough to get a pair.
Did any of you guys manage to?

(Update: by half past these were out of stock, Sadly I didn't bag myself a pair (I honestly haven't seen may who did) But it's almost always expected with these types of things, as sites have a tendency to crash)

Shopping my Stash #2

I did one of these posts a while back now, which I completely failed at. But this will be different and I will start to give my neglected products some love! I haven't worn eyeshadow for such a long time now, mainly out of laziness..but I'm determined to get back into it so have selected  MUA's eyeshadow palette along with a colour tattoo to help me for fulfil that. Blush wise I'm missing this amazing one by Vivo although I am massively put off of blush when I have to apply it before its light outside (I have fears of a clown face!). I also want to make the most of this lovely Cha Cha tint from Benefit which I think will look lovely with Look's Loud lips in tangerine cream  A BB Cream is a must for me,and I'm determined to put this Witch one through its paces in the weeks to come..Wish me luck!

All links to the products are linked within the post in case you're wondering! What are you guys using lately?

Chit Chat Highlighter.

I've wanted to try Benefit's 'High Beam' for ages now, but at £18.50 a bottle it isn't exactly the cheapest product on the market. So when I heard about Poundland's dupe I went on a hunt for it until finally I found a store that stocked it.
I'll be honest in saying that these 'nail polish' like bottles really don't appeal to me in any way,shape or form and the brush just makes matters worse, although for a pound its bearable. With just the smallest amount this highlighter gives a lovely effect to the top of the cheek bones and from what I've seen on other blogs it's amazingly close to 'High Beam' despite the £17.50 price difference (Although I cant compare myself as I haven't got the Benefit version). I found that this actually lasts longer on my skin than my beloved Sunbeam which again is a stupid amount of money. 
If your lucky you may be able to pick this up in your local poundland.

MUA Nail Constellation in Libra

I've been eyeing up these Nail Constellations from MUA for a while now, So when my younger sister brought this home I immediately had to have a go! (She's a little beauty blogger in the making, she even picked up a few Barry M polishes too)
I think Libra is my favourite from the range, the simplisticity of the black beads with the odd blue mixed in look wonderful on the nails, and to my surprise was dead easy to do following the instructions given by MUA. I think the most surprising thing about this product though is the fact I didn't get the beads everywhere like I was expecting, Instead they were all safely back in there container the moment I had finished.
You can pick these up for just £3 in selected superdrug stores or over at MUA's website.
If your looking for something different they wont disappoint!

My Top Five Autumn Nail Picks!

I wont lie to you, I'm not 100% sure if Autumn is already over and Google is no help at all, ButI figured It was only fair I posted my Autumn nail picks since I already posted my lipstick ones. I'm sure most (if not all) of these shades will see me through until winter, with of course even more sparkles! 
I brought this ELF one nearly a year ago now- I think its the prefect browny colour for this time of year, I just love wearing it as soon as it gets cold outside! Piccadilly Circus is probably my favourite pick of the bunch I picked it up ages ago in a magazine along and I'm so so glad I did its just a lovely wearable shade. I had to include a glitter polish in my picks, and what could be better than this amazing glitter from models own?! Ibiza Mix seems to look amazing over almost anything! A red shade is a must have at this time of year  for me and I'm loving St James from Nails inc which you can still pick up in Glamour for just £2. Lastly, Is this lovely purple shade from W7, Which I picked up for under £1.50, I just think its a lovely colour to throw on.

So there you have it, those are my top five nail picks! What do you love to wear at this time of year?

Thursday, 15 November 2012


Over the past week my posts have been pretty scattered, I have so much to blog about but there just hasn't been the time! We had one of those weeks last week were everything broke.. I'm not even exaggerating when I say the Oven, TV, and my bed all fell apart within the space of three days. Luckily we have the most amazing friends and family who were more than happy to help (and I love my new bed!) but because of all that I've just been trying to sort everything out along with keeping up with my College work (which is proving harder than last year already!)

I've felt grown up this week, in that I've actually started saving for Christmas (I'm that friend who does all of their Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve) and making use of the library which I spent the best part of last year avoiding at every chance! I even got a 'letter of congratulations  from my Principal regarding my attendance - I honestly don't know what's funnier the fact that I got it, or the fact the place is so cheap they attached the letter to an email. But in all that, I've had my four trusty friends pictured above with me everyday without fail.
I haven't really got a 'go to' concealer in my life right now in the mornings I use Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse in the areas needed over my BB cream which works really well for me, although my friend refuses to use it if she has any blemishes on her skin as she says it tends to dry around them - It just goes to show everyone is different. I really like knowing that this Witch concealer is in my bag if I feel the need to touch my face up. I think it does a good job, nothing mind blowing but great for the odd use here and there.

I hated everything about the Milk and Honey lip balm from Nivea when I first brought it ages ago now, Now I cant stop using it and think it is easily one of the best lip balms on the high street! I only have a quarter left now, so I think I'll be needing a new one ASAP! 

I love this lipstick from Rimmel which I posted about here, the colour is great for everyday use and its survived in my bag for a good couple of weeks now which is always a good sign.

Lastly I'm really enjoying this hand cream from L'occitane, Okay so the smell isnt really my cup of tea. But the way it leaves my hands makes up for all of that!

What's in your bag?!

Botanics Ionic Clay Mask..

 I've been really into skincare lately, So when I saw the Botanics range had a third off at Boots the other week I had to try something new! The thing that stood out most to me was this mask, which I think is aimed at oily skin types with the name being 'Shine away' and all. But I find it works great on my normal skin.
For some reason I thought this mask was going to be really thick, so I was pretty surprised to discover how thin it actually is (I even had to shake it on first use as it was too runny). However I think this works in its favour, not only is it going to last forever because you have to use the smallest bit at a time, It dries supper fast!
When I have this on I actually feel like I have army print on my face! I love how this mask works it starts as this easy to control/spread on the face green/grey colour which transforms into a paler green (Pictured below). 
After ten minutes this leaves my skin feeling so so soft and clean, What more could you ask for in a mask?
You can pick this up for £6.99 in selected Boots stores.

Double Hit Lip in Rose Riot

 This is a post I've been meaning to make for months, although I've never gotten around to it! A while back I ordered a bunch of products when Look Beauty were having a half price sale, one of which was this Double Hit Lip in the shade Rose Riot.
I love the idea of these products, for just a £1 more than the normal Look Beauty lipstick range you get the matching lip gloss. Meaning you can create a total of 3 looks from this one product!
I find the lipstick on its own is a lovely day time shade with a little hint of gold running through it and that the matching lipstick  is a little more on the pink side! Below is the lipstick alone in the only image I could find which truly showcases how lovely this shade is!It has great staying power and I love throwing it on in the morning.
For a bolder look I just add the lipgloss and I'm good to go like in the next image, I love that everything you need is in one product - It just makes life so much easier! 
For just £8 a pop at Superdrug I'll be back for more!

Things I've learnt about pictures..

When I posted my things I've learnt about blogging post last week, I gained such a lovely response from you guys and some of you even too me up on the offer of a picture post. As I assured you all in that post, I am no photographer, far from one in fact.. But before I stumbled across the world of blogging over a year ago now I had no idea about cameras. Along the way I've picked up some really helpful tips, So here they are all in one handy post which will hopefully teach you lot something new!
You'll have to ignore the bits of black around this Jemma Kidd Primer which is the object of today's post, I'm guessing because of the amount of people who think its a good idea to rip the plastic of magazines and steal the freebies, Marie Claire have now taped their freebies to to magazine which don't get me wrong it is a clever idea, but its just annoying when it comes to clean up! (And why should shop lifters spoil everyone's fun!?) I do have a point to this little ramble; Rule one of picture taking - Make sure what you're blogging about is clean! Clearly I practise what I preach...but I didn't notice the marks until I loaded the pictures to my laptop, Promise! 
Notice the change of quality in the above images?! What if I told you they were all taken with the same camera with around a two minute time difference between each? It's all down to the lighting! The first picture is my favourite place in the house to take images which is right by the back door where the light hits the wooden floor amazingly well, Of course this is the most awkward place to photograph as someone (mainly my foodaholic sister) is always in and out of the kitchen and the door happens to be right beside it however a Saturday morning is when everyone ends up shopping and I manage to get my blogging photo fix. The second is a recent discovery, on my window sill sits a stereo I've used about twice in seven years. The speakers happen to have a wooden effect which makes it the perfect place to photograph (providing the product is small enough). Of course you could always use your window sill itself , mine happens to be far to starched from the houses previous owners but there's always the option of covering it with paper (Which I will discuss later) Basically get as close to a window as your can or the quality starts to drop like in the third image, My bedroom floor is great for blogging in the summer, although in the winter the light begins to hit differently and it becomes rather useless unless I need to blog about a bigger items such a magazines and favourite  posts which tend to have a lot of items. 
For me establishing your own photographic style is a must! There are photos I can look at on my dashboard and automatically know they belong to and its because the bloggers who took them have their own individual style. I know that many people opt for the classic white background  (easily achieved with white paper if you're wondering) which is fine, but personally I love sticking to wooden one although I am really lucky because wooden floor seems to be everywhere in my house! But there are so many other ideas for putting your own mark on your pictures such as table cloths, bedsheets and even patterned paper! Above is a style I wish I could pull off which I like to call 'The dressing table', Yes, I'm aware that my attempt is rather perfetic! Clearly I don't have a dressing table, This is just a few things on my bedside one trying to reenact the look - But hopefully you get the point!I love this focal soften which you can find on PicMonkey  I tend to use it in my lip product posts such as this one.
Patterned paper can be a really cheap way to bring your pictures to life! Here I grabbed some I had lying around in my room from when I took art in school, but I reckon you could easily pick up some prettier designs for a couple of quid. My personal favourite is the black paper, I love how it makes the primer stand out! 

Don't wait until the end of the day to photograph, It will reflect badly in your image quality. I honestly cant express enough my last point that you don't need a fancy camera, If you follow the tips above I have every faith that you'll be able to get some pretty descent images no matter what camera you have! I always take a few shots and then look to find my best once they're on my laptop.

 If you enjoyed this post please let me know, I'd also love to hear any tips that you guys have!

Miss Sporty: Metal Flip

 I've seen many of these types of nail polishes going around in the blogging world, But I've never thought to check them out for myself until I saw this stunning one while browsing in Superdrug a couple of weeks ago. I never really pay much attention to Miss Sporty, but was really surprised with some of the products they had to offer. This polish was a total steal costing just £1.99, plus I think I got a free lip balm for buying this along with a cheap base coat!
I love the brush on this polish, It's thicker than most but It makes application so easy! As for the polish itself its a real mix of blue, green and purple depending what light you see it in. After 3 days of wearing this polish I only have a couple of small chips as you may be able to see below, although in natural light they're barely visible!
Not bad for just £1.99, I cant wait to try more polishes in the range!

Free Jemma Kidd in Marie Claire

This months issue of Marie Claire gives readers a free choice of Jemma Kidd's I-Define Volumising Mascara in Stage Black or the Instant Lift Skin Perfecting Primer. Personally I went for the primer as I already have a Jemma Kidd mascara from a previous magazine offer and from what I can remember I actually really liked it!  The magazine also comes with a 20% off at warehouse offer and a £15 off code when you spend over £100 at (MADEMARIEDEC) 

I'm actually looking forward to reading this magazine, I've been loving Nicole Scherzinger on the X Factor so cant wait to read that interview! Will you guys be picking Marie Claire up this month?

Cucumber Freshening Water.

I'm really disappointed in myself for falling for a product which according to may blogs has now been discontinued ! But I'm still going to write this review so you guys can rush out and check your local Body Shop stores to see if you can bag your own in the sale (I wish I picked up back ups!).Over the weekend I was looking for something to just get my make up quickly when I spotted this in the sale section of The Body Shop. For only £2 (reduced from £4) this was perfect!
I use this with a Kleenex facial cloth to just quickly sweep all my make up away, It does a great job even with my stubborn mascara! I think most people will either love or hate the smell because as the name suggests it does smell strongly of cucumber - but personally I don't mind it. I love the way this leaves my skin and will continue to use it until I finish the bottle  - Although I think that will take a long time!

Have you tried this toner?

Tuesday, 6 November 2012 Wishlist..

It's rare that I share giveaways with you guys, but thought this one from the lovely Louise's blog (here) was great so I really wanted to get involved! To enter you just need to head over to her blog and follow the rules she's set out.It actually took me ages to compile this wishlist because of the amount of products that Feel Unique has to offer! I had no idea that they offered the best of the highstreet as well as a load of higher end brands! But with out any further rambling here's what I would buy if I was lucky enough to win the £80 to spend over at Feel Unique;

L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil 125ml (£13.55)

I've been loving hair oils lately, and would love the chance to try this Mythic oil from Loreal since I've heard such amazing things about it!

L'Oréal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick in Nude Ingenue (£6.80)

I think these lipsticks from Loreal are great, I already own two but have a feeling that 'nude ingenue' would be the perfect nude shade I'm always looking to find!

DIORSKIN POUDRE SHIMMER Ultra Shimmering All Over Face Powder in rose diamond (£32.00)

It wouldn't be a wishlist without an appearance from Dior! I always hear so much about this on youtube in the shade Amber Diamond, although I feel rose diamond would be perfect for my skin tone!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch  in Simmering Sand and Radiant Rose  (£4.99 each)

I didn't get on with the 'wake me up' foundation, although that hasn't stopped me lusting over the latest releases from the wake me up range. I think the pair of these look great so I'd really love to try them out!

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory (£6.99)

I've head so much about this foundation and would really like the chance to share my own opinions on it because it looks great. In the past I haven't got along with Rimmel foundations (I find them too orange for my skin tone) although I feel like this could be the one to change that!

Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in shade 16 (£5.49)

For me Rimmel is one of those brands that have really upped their game lately - hints them appearing loads on this wish list. I've recently tried a Kate Moss matte lipstick which I now wear everyday and love, so It would be amazing to try more in the collection including the loveliness of what is shade 16! 

I've heard a lot about the Girls aloud lashes, so would love to try a pair out for myself!

Grand total - £79.16

If given the chance, what would you spend £80 on?

Free Nails Inc with Glamour.

Oh, Glamour. Why are you so tempting all of the time?! I'm a bit late with this freebie from the December 2012 issue and I see some bloggers have already got posts up about this, but I figured I'd better tell you guys just in case you hadn't seen this about it yet. I wasn't going to pick this up, I have a mountain of nail polishes in my room and I really don't need any more to add to my collection! Although when I saw other bloggers upload posts on this magazine, the red shade really caught my eye! There are Four shades available;

Motcomb street - Nails Inc call this 'an ultra chic navy blue nail polish shade.' - But to me it just looks black!  I felt this just wasn't something I was missing in my collection so I didn't go looking for it, although I'm sure this shade is one that would have many uses.

St James - This polish is summed up on the Nails Inc website as  'a pillar box red shade. St James is a show stopping red that will add instant glamour to any outfit' Which I have to agree with this shade of red is lovely and something I look forward to showing off over the festive months to come! 

Glamour GlitterBecause this is no where on the Nails Inc website and the name suggests so, I'm guessing this is a special shade just for Glamour magazine. Normally I would have run right out to pick up a glitter shade at such a good price bit this one is way too subtle for me! If you click on the words 'Glamour Glitter' I have linked to Fee's blog where she shows off this shade in action. 

Elizabeth Street - 'A delicate nude cream nail polish. Elizabeth Street is perfect for all occasions and essential to every nail polish collection.' - Personally I have way too many of these pink shades so didn't bother with this one, Although if this is something you haven't got in your collection I would recommend you check it out!
As well as the massive saving on the nail polishes, This months Glamour also has quite a few samples this month including two perfume, Rimmel BB cream, and Maxfactor Face Finity. I've also seen some people post about a sample of the Nivea primer which I'm gutted that I didn't get since I've really wanted to try that out!

Nails Inc Polishes retail for £11, each and Glamour magazine will cost you a tiny £2 which I'm sure you will agree is a great saving!

Things I've learnt about blogging..

When I first stumbled across the world of beauty blogging I had just finished sitting my GCSE exams, and my Mum had some how bribed me to show up to prom offering to buy all my make up along with my prom dress (which I managed to rip within ten minutes of getting out of the car). Make up had never played a huge part in my life until I began researching products for prom and happened to stubble across blogs.  Needless to say I had no idea what I was doing when I started out - I still don't half of the time but I wanted to share some of the things I've learnt from the world of beauty blogging with you guys, because it honestly means so much to me that you take the time to read my blog.
English doesn't have to be your strong point - To be honest I've never been amazing at English, I mean I've always been okay with it but I really struggle with aspects of it even now.But to blog you don't need to be amazing at everything English wise, I think at first like many I was so so worried about causing a spelling/grammar error on my blog - but that's where spell check and proof reading comes in. In all honestly if you  love what you do your readers will be able to see your passion for it and respect you for that. I also think its important to find your own style of writing/posting, It may take a while for that to happen - But that's fine as long as you're comfortable with the way you post! I'm more likely to remember you for being different than a copy of someone else!

Comments are important - For me, seeing the same old faces pop up in the comment section makes my day, and I know the same goes for many other bloggers too which is why I always try to leave comments on their blogs. But comments are just as important on your own blog too! I always read and respond to comments because I always want to take my readers feedback on board aswell as answer any questions they may have. People have taken the time to comment on your posts, so why shouldn't you take the time to return the favour and respond to what they are saying? While we're on the subject of comments word verification is something so many bloggers hate but so many (like myself a few months ago) are unaware even exists! Basically if you have no idea what I'm talking about I recommend you look at this post I found online, which explains exactly what word verification is and how to turn it off if you wish to do so.
You don't need a fancy camera - I use my iphone 4 to take my images, I have done since I got it although you need to work out what works best for your camera. Let me refer you to this lip post I made back in April, Since then I have learned so much more through other bloggers and with the same camera my lip posts now look like this  - I'm still looking to improve my posts constantly but knowing that I achieved that in the space of just six months leaves me feeling quite proud and hopeful for what I can achieve in the  six months to come. Please let me know if you'd like to see a photography post, I am no photographer I assure you but I may be able to teach you a thing or two about blog images.

You don't need to be a millionaire - I kind of have to say this considering the tittle of this blog, but before I had my own blog I would look at others and think how can you afford to post about a new product  everyday?! But somehow over a year later here I am amazing (and completely disgusting) myself that I manage to post about different products pretty much everyday. Blogging is an amazing way to find really good cheap high street buys, aswell as amazing offers through things like magazines which occasionally offer amazing freebies.
Social networking is important - I'd heard about #bbloggers chats for a while now, but they just didn't interest me. I'd never had a twitter and I had no plans to change that. Although when I got the the point where I was happy with the way I posted (but also looking to improve) I finally thought to look into these chats, and even join in a little. If you don't already take part in these chats I highly recommend that you check this blog out, you'll meet such lovely people and get a chance to really help each other out. I'd also recommend that if you don't have a twitter for your blog that you seriously consider it. I honestly think it was one of the best things I could have done for my blog when I finally gave in and signed up because you really get a chance to interact with other bloggers and even brands who are a lot of the time more than happy to tweet about your review!

Dont force yourself - This may seem silly to some, but when I first started  becoming serious about blogging I would force myself  to post pretty much everyday which meant my whole blog really suffered! These days I manage that anyway, but it's nice to not feel beat up that I didn't manage to post on a particular day, because I always know there's tomorrow to come back better than ever with pictures and a review I'm proud of! 

I really hoped you liked this post and it helped some of you out because I honestly loved writing it! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask in the comments or even contact me on twitter (@Summers_beauty). I'm not saying that the list above is something everyone should run there blog by, but they're they things that have helped me really come out of my shell in the blogging world and I really hope they help some of you too! Before I finish , feel free to leave me your blog links because I love looking at them!

Natural Collection - Champagne

Over the past year I've become quite a fan of the Natural Collection and the products they have to offer such as their lipsticks which I cant get enough off! The price makes them even better with nothing in the collection costing over £2, meaning It's great value for money (especially when the 3 for 2 offers are on and you can get three products for under £4!)
When picking up a few products from the natural the other day this pretty nail colour in champagne really stood out to me. In just two coats your good to go! The only way I can describe the colour is as a nude with a metallic twist which is perfect for pretty much all events. It's a really classy colour, and I think the name Champagne suits it perfectly!
Natural collection nail polishes retail at £1.89 from Boots.
