Pearlys Smile Box

We all want it, that perfect *dazzling* white smile. Even if you brush twice a day and depending what you eat or drink can gradually stain your teeth after a while. So here is a possible solution for you! I was sent Pearlys Smile Box* and was very excited to give it a go, as I've always wanted whiter and brighter teeth. 

I've put off using the Smile Box for months now, as I have suffered from various mouth problems/infections as I chew my mouth frequently due to anxiety (nothing to do with not brushing my teeth!), so didn't want to try the Smile Box while my mouth was suffering. I wanted to give an accurate review of the product, so anyway, enough about me - onto the Smile Box!

Barry M | Aquarium Nail Effects Collection

Barry M Aquarium Nail Effects Collection Mediterranean Mermaid

I've had my hands on these two gorgeous Barry M polishes from the Aquarium nail effect collection for a while now, and I absolutely love them. Well actually, it's safe to say I love all Barry M nail polishes! I'm dying to collect the rest, but for now I'll show you just how beautiful the Mermaid and Mediterranean shades are.

Maybelline | Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow Pink Gold

Quite a few months ago I picked up Maybelline Color Tattoo in the shade 65 Pink Gold, and I can safely say it is still one of my favourite eyeshadows I frequently use. I usually apply it with either my fingers or an eyeshadow brush - mostly the latter to save my fingers from getting messy and for a smooth application.

Bloggers Do It Better | #2 Bargains

TKMaxx Lanyard Bargains Pink Hair

The key to getting a bargain is to know what everything costs. If you've ever seen the show 'Dispatches', you should know that not everything is as it seems when it comes to shopping. Brands purposely try to elude you into buying their product with the promise that it is cheaper or you get more for the same price.

This is my first ever outfit of the day post, so let me know what you think! Today I've been wearing the stunning Chi Chi Freya dress* which has a gorgeous summer floral print as you can see. I'm a really fussy clothes shopper especially when it comes to dresses, however I absolutely love this one and it fits like a dream. There's a concealed zip at the back which makes it super easy to slip in and out of, plus I love the way it accentuates my waist. Excellent quality, and I'd never think twice about ordering from Chi Chi again!

If you'd like to see more OOTD posts, let me know! Have you ever bought a dress from Chi Chi before?

You Are Invited | Newark Blogger Meet 2014

August Newark Blogger Meet 2014

I'm excited to officially announce that I'm  organising my very first blogger meet up, and I want you to be there! Since it will be around my blog's 1st birthday, what better excuse than to celebrate it by making a very special and unique meet up for all local bloggers (or any bloggers that wish to travel to the East Midlands to attend). I don't believe there's ever been a blogger meet in Newark (Nottinghamshire) before, and I'm pretty sure I haven't seen one similar to what I have planned! Interested? I'll give you a few hints about the plans...

Lush | Think Pink Bath Bomb

Yet another Lush review! I was given the Think Pink* bath bomb as a freebie at the counter after I purchased a mini haul, because it was a little battered (the flowers are missing) - however it still worked perfectly!

My Biggest Adventure

When I was asked to write about my biggest adventure, I really had to put my thinking cap on. What is my biggest adventure? A memorable holiday? Undertaking a challenge? Or even an adventure I have planned for the future? I'd like to think my whole life up to now has been an adventure in itself. What we do and where we go makes us who we are today.

The word adventure makes me think of my childhood, and there are many different things I could talk about, but one of my biggest adventures when I was younger was a school trip to America in Year 8. This was my first holiday abroad without my parents, and after 9/11 my parents weren't very keen on letting me go to begin with. Eventually I managed to persuade them, and off I went! I was attending an all-girls school at the time and it was a skiing trip to Killington, Vermont. It was my first taste of freedom, and I loved it! Although being a vegetarian had its disadvantages while I was away (lots of meals were meat-based), it taught me to speak up for myself as my parents weren't there to do it for me.

Get To Know | Majenta

In today's post I wanted to introduce you to Majenta Beauty, a mother and daughter team that was founded by Jayne Lyons when she realised there was a gap in the market for an innovative beauty brand and concept. Along with having their own range of products, Majenta also has a Roadshow Team for any event you might require a makeup artist for.

Liberty Hello Kitty Eye Shadow Compact

I don't know if it's just me or if a lot of people are in the same boat, but I always tend to find bits of makeup here and there, and I have no idea or can't remember how I came to own it! A few months ago after settling into University, I came across this Hello Kitty eye shadow compact, which I can only assume was a gift from someone. I wish I knew who it was because it's gorgeous!

Bloggers Do It Better | #1 Spring

The #BloggersDoItBetter challenge was created by Gemma over at Touch Of Belle, and this is the first post in the series. The full details can be found here if you're interested in taking part too, and the first topic is spring, so let's get stuck in!

Since I had yet to do some form of nail art, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get creative. My dotting tools still haven't arrived sadly, so instead used bobby pins as a replacement which actually worked perfectly. Unfortunately the weather was a bit grim and overcast, so I had to use flash to get decent shots.

Lush The Brightside Bubble Bar

So first of all, Lush's 'The Brightside' bubble bar is huge! I was crazy enough to use the whole thing in one bath so it created loads and loads of bubbles. It was pretty hard for me to crumble under the running water and resorted to bashing it against the bottom of the bath, but it worked! The amount you can use in your bath varies; it can be used for one bath like I did, or split into smaller section for lots of baths.

University, Blogging And Meets

Hello my lovely readers! This post is basically a quick life update I guess, since I like to keep you in the loop of what's going on in my life. I'm currently coming up to the end of my first year at University studying Computer Information Systems, and I'm stressing out about the work to say the least. It's not that I can't do it, it's just that there's so much to do! This may also mean that the closer it gets to my deadlines, the less I might post, but I'll always do my best to have something new on here every week for you to read!

I have to say, the lack of money at University really does bring me down sometimes. It sucks because instead of going out regularly like a typical student or spending lots on clothes or makeup, I try to stay in and save my pennies (although I'm a sucker for takeaways!).

Lush Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb

The second treat which I had the pleasure of purchasing and taking home with me from Lush is the Fluffy Egg bath bomb. Fluffy Egg is an adorable pink Easter egg shaped bath bomb, with floral decoration on either side. If you were a fan of the Snow Fairy shower gel, then I recommend this because they actually have the same scent.
