lush christmas!

hey everyone,

So i thought i would show you the things i picked up from lush,
its not alot but i love lush so much, if im not limited to a couple of things i will go crazy,
so my boyfriend had to say im only allowed to buy a couple of bath bombs, but i brought 5 lol, and some shower gel.

told you i get carried away.

anyway here is what i got:
this one is "blue skies and fluffy white clouds", it is a bubble bar, ive already used half out if though, it makes the most amazing bubbles and has frankincense and patchouli scents.

"its raining men", a shower gel that you can also use on your hair, but i dont, it is "honey i washed the kids" soap bar in a gel form, beautiful.

"superstar", this is a bubble bar and is strawberry scented, yumm

"abombinaball", this is a bath bomb, it has pepermint, vanillla and orange scents, he is so cute.

"the melting snowman" has orange and vanilla, gives him a maripan fragrance, smells just like snowcake soap.

"candy mountain", exactually like the creamy candy bar, but in a mountain shape instead of the candy cane shape.


hope you all had a lovely christmas, ill be doing some more posts when im not so busy, i have a few days off.
see you guys soon

electric disco 17 cosmetics

hey everyone,
i cant believe it is less then a week from Christmas I'm soooo excited!!
i wanna open my pressies now but i cant =[

anyway, i went into boots today and saw that 17 cosmetics had a Christmas offer.

when you buy 2 17 cosmetics you get a free gift bag with is called "electric disco 17" which has 3 nail varnishes and a nail file in it.

now, I'm absolutely obsessed with nail varnish so i just had to have it :D, even if i had to buy 2 items that i didn't really need, but actually i found 2 things that will be very useful for me, and ive never tried 17 so i thought i would give it ago.

these were the 2 i brought separately, i brought a blusher and a metallic cream eyeshadow, the blusher is called plum puff and the eyeshadow is wild silver.
with flash
wild silver, plum puff

 without flash
 wild silver, plum puff

the blusher has abit of fallout with it but is a really nice colour and the eyeshadow is very pigmented and is nice and creamy, so good by itself or will be nice underneath as a base.
then this is the free bag you get, its cute :],its got a sparkle to it as well that's not very bright on the picture.

so you have (left to right) a glittery top coat, red nail varnish called risky red, and a black/blue nail varnish called nightshade, and the nail file.
the nail varnish is abit runny for my liking, but has a good sized brush and is true to the colour on the bottle,the glitter has a great amount of glitter and you only need one coat of it, where as some glitter nail varnishes you have to put several coats on or even dab the glitter onto the nail, well this is just one stoke with a good amount of glitter, thumbs up from me.


i have on my hand at the moment nightshade with the glitter top coat.
dont know wether you can fully appreciate the glitter but it is beautiful

hope you guys like,
merry christmas

hey everyone,
so we are only 2 weeks from Christmas now, I'm so excited!! and i found this tag on someones blog so i thought i would tag myself and try it :D


Favourite Christmas Movie?

my favourite film is the Grinch!!!!, i absolutely love it, i watch it every year about 10 times before Christmas, and always on Christmas eve.

Are you on the Naughtyy list or the Nice list?
always the nice list...why wouldn't i be :]

Have you ever had a White Christmas?
if i have i don't remember, i live in England so we don't have like any, i think we has one when i was about 2, and we nearly had one last year (well it was white but that was just from frost aha) i was we had though

where do you normally spend the holidays?
at my mom and dads house, i always go there for christmas eve and stay for the 3 days, i love it there.
What's your favourite Christmas song?
My favioute christmas song is either wham- last christmas because that always gets stuck in my head oorrrr santa clause is coming to town, and i love micheal bubles version of this, he has an amazing voice.


Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
yes we do, it started when my nan was little, her family would sit around the tree after dinner and all open one present, then my mom did it when she was little, and now i do it, its a family tradition that i will continue if i ever have kids.
Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
a few....blitzen, comet, rudolph, dasher, dancer, prancer...how many are there :/


What Christmas tradition are you looking forward to most this year?
me and mom always put up the christmas tree together, listening to christmas songs,opening the one present on christmas eve, making rum truffles with mom, and decorating the table on christmas day, cant wait!!!

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
fake, the first year ive put up a christmas tree with my boyrfriend, because ive moved out, but mom and dads is fake aswell.
What's your all-time favourite Christmas sweet treat?
dad always gets us a big toblerone on christmas day to open, and we have ferrero rochers aswell, so yum!




Do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
i love giving presents, i cant wait to give my mom her present, and ive made a huge sack of presents for my best friend whos expecting a child just after christmas, i cant wait to see her face :]


What would be your dream place to visit for the Christmas season?
nowhere really, i love being at home with my family, and seeing my friends for new year, i wouldnt change it, other then make it a white christmas

Does your family have a special Christmas recipe you like to help make?
yeah me and mom make rum truffles every year and its so much fun!

Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
oh i fail miserable, they get worse as i go along awell, they might aswell be a ball of selotape, haha, at least it takes people a while to get into them

Most memorable Christmas moment?
when i was little, getting up on christmas day really early, jumping on my sister to wake her up and then use jumping on my brother to wake him up, he has a teenager then so he would always go back to sleep and come down like an hour later after us shouting at him, and him coming down in a sleeping bag lol. i would sit by the fire next to the tree and sit opening all my presents then spend hours playing with them till lunch was ready, i miss it sometimes!

What made you realise the truth about Father Christmas?
when i woke up one night to see mom putting my stocking at the end of the bed, luckerly she didnt dress up or that would have been embassing, lol i had an ickling anyway so it was ok.

Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
i used to make them but never stuck to them, so i dont make them anymore, i just make a wish instead :]

What makes Christmas special for you?
being with my family, seeing my dads family on boxing day and just eating and drinking and being merry, "its the most wonderful time of the year", and its very true!

now tag your it!, i tag everyone who reads this, give it ago and put the link in my comments so i can read them.
merry christmas!

Review: Kevin murphy colour bug

Hey guys, I'm so excited about this,
I love this thing so much

It's called colour bug and it's buy Kevin murphy, they are £12.45 and it is a hair shadow for your hair


You know like the hair mascaras you could buy that washs out that's what it is basically, there really concentrated colours and work in every colour hair, obviously it will be lighter on blonde hair but it is amazing in my dark brown hair

I recommend everyone try this, they have purple, pink and orange and you can do highlights or big chunks of colour.

Tell me what you guys think, good idea??

Bye xxxxx

review: lee strafford protein hair growth treatment

so, hey everyone

I'm reviewing a treatment today by lee Stafford, its called hair that will never grow past a certain length.

this treatment is a protein treatment that is spouse to nourish the hair and scalp to improve hair growth and thickness and protection of the scalp.


Ive been using this treatment for about 2 weeks now, well just under and i don't know whether it has actually made my hair grow because it doesn't seem to have but it has made it super shiny and so silky smooth. so i know it is doing my hair some good.

to start with my hair will not grown past just below my shoulders and is so thin from bleaching my hair thousands of time, it is so badly damaged that my hair does grow Caz i get roots very easily but the ends snap of straight away. I'm hoping that this treatment is doing some good

this is what my hair looks now, i haven't even straightened it yet either. my hair gets very frizzy and its a big improvement from what I'm used to, still got a long way till my hair is in a better condition but it is a start. I'm even getting long roots and I've started to get tufts of hair all over my scalp where my hair had fallen out from the bleach (sounds lovely doesnt it lol)


dont know whether you can see them or not, but i can definitely feel them. anyway im still gonna keep going with this product and see if my hair will actually grow, caz then it really will be a miracle :D



have a nice day xxx
