My Christmas Dress

Hey guy's
Im so excited my christmas dress came in the post :), I didn't actually think it would come in time as I ordered it from ebay during the whole 'christmas rush'. I'm always so last minute and just hoped for the best. And lucky it came on the day excepted day. So Thank the seller FantasiaBoutique for such a great service and dispatch.

So heres a look at the dress
Plus postage it cost just under £19 from FantasiaBoutique, And it has a gorgeous gold detailing. My bad pictures and smudged mirror are not doing the dress any justice.
The dress comes in all the colours above. You can have a better look here.

This is just a quick post as i still have to go out and buy a few more presents. I hope everyone is enjoying there holidays

Take Care

Sleek True colour Lipstick in Cherry (Review)

Hey Guys
So yesterday I brought a new lipstick. I was looking for something to wear to a christmas party I have coming up and wanted to sort out my look from now.
So as it is the festive season and warm colours are on trend, I wanted a warm colour that would go with my black & gold embellished dress. So as i was looking for a plum-red shade i was very pleased when I came across this Cherry 790 lipstick by Sleek in superdrugs. I love the colour and think it matched what i had in mind. And as its by sleek, its only £4.99 :)
My Review - Sleek True colour Cherry 790 (Sheen) 
So here's what I thought about it after wearing it all day today
  • Long lasting colour, didn't really need to reapply not even after eating 
  • The formula is very creamy which makes it very moisturising 
  • Small and sleek tube easy to carry around in makeup bag
  • Great price at only £4.99
  • Unscented, so doesn't have that weird lipstick smell I have experienced with other cheaper brands 
  • Great Pigmentation 
  • I really don't have much to complain about

So overall I am very pleased with this purchased, I got a lot of compliments from friends which is an added bonus. And it held up during this cold weather. I had used sleek eyeshadow previously but didn't think to use their lipstick but now I'm glad i did :) Does anyone else use sleeks lipsticks or buy any other of the Sleek products?

I hope everyone is enjoying the christmas season, Take Care

My New Wellies :)

Hey Guys, 
So In london its been freezing the last couple of days, and when I woke up this morning I saw so loads of my friends facebook and bbm status' on how its snowing. Although I didn't see any, there was a lot of frost and ice outside my house. The roads are quite slippery and winter is well and truly here. I've been looking for my old wellies for a while now, Maybe one of my cousins "borrowed" them as I cant manage to find them anywere, and thats were my stuff usually end up lol. 

So I decided to buy a new pair, so I'm ready for the winter weathers and here's what i got.  
 They are originally £45, but I only needed to pay £25 thanks to the £20 gift card I got in my December 2012 Elle issue, which i previously posted about.

They're so comfy, and I love the lace up at the front. There also available in Green, i was indecisive at first then i went with the black as i thought they'd go with more things.

You can check them out on the website here: Black Boots & Green Boots.

Screen Printing At Studio Harlen

So today I was invited to go along to a Blogger Breakfast event, were we learnt how to screen print with Studio Harlen. It was a great day, which I really enjoyed, I met some great bloggers and I hadn't done screen printing since my sixth form college days, which was about 3/4years ago so it brought back some old memories.

So here are my two prints I did

We made them into head scarfs sizes , which can be styled like the pictures below
We also got a bag from there most recent collection, which I think is absolutely gorgeous :), Heres a picture of the one I choose.
All there products are hand made, and designed in the studio. They use real leather and study zips and buttons. You can see some of the collection on their website here and you can also check out there twitter or blog for more designs.

As Studio Harlen, is part of ACHICA, the Members-only Luxury Lifestyle Store, We also got a great goody bag full of great products from their company.

NOTD: Night Owl

Hey guys
So Today I'm wearing Night Owl by Fearn Cotton, Which comes from her Midnight Manicure Collection. I brought it from boots for myself yesterday, When I was supposed to be out christmas shopping for my family x_x lol. 
These are the results after 1 coat. (Please excuse my sloppiness and bad pictures I am not doing the nail varnish any justice.) This colour is defiantly my favourite from this collection though. It has a real starry night effect and would great on a night out. 

I really like her nail varnish's, I have talked about her 'Fearns Perfect Polish' collection in my very first real post :). You can find out more about this collection here
Has anyone else tried any of her polishes?

John Frieda FRIZZ-EASE | Review

So heres my second post for today and its a Review on John Frieda Frizz-Ease shampoo, conditioner and Extra strength formula Hair Serum which I received yesterday.
Full Review:
So I washed my hair with these products yesterday and I have to say I really liked them, and I think that it really worked well with my hair and gave me great results.
The shampoo, Isn't sulphate free, which is something i usually look out for when buying shampoo's,  however It was very moisturising and did not dry out my hair. Its really light, smells gorgeous and really lathers up :). I only did one wash and my hair felt very clean and surprisingly tangle free.
The conditioner, like the shampoo this smelt really nice. This was also very light and a little goes a long way. It left my hair very fluffy and seemed to get rid of quite a lot of the frizz.
The serum, I think this worked really well, it moisturised my hair left it felling very soft and seemed to get rid of alot of the frizz whilst I was blow drying it out. It also allowed me to flat iron my hair in less strokes and it stayed frizz-free all day, and i haven't had to redo it today. 

My Results 

You can check out more of their products like their Brilliant Brunette shampoo, or the Frizz-Ease products I used on their website here:

What do you all think of the results? Has anyone else used there products before?

So I was on BBC Iplayer catching up on Eastenders today, since I'm never home to watch it on telly. But from watching this weeks episode I couldnt help realises that they seem to have the worst outfits ever. So I decided to have a nose around at what most of the girls wear outside of the show and they actually look quite nice. So thats gave me the idea for this 'Eastenders: Style wars' post lol. 
So the contestants are

 Jacqueline Jossa who plays Lauren Branning 
Shona McGarty who plays Whitney Dean
Hetti Baywater who plays Lucy Beale 
 Danielle Harold who plays Lola Pearce (mitchelle) 

Jacqueline Jose 1/2/3/4 / Shona McGarty 1/2/3/4 / Hetti Bywatter 1/2/3/4 / Danielle Harold 1/2/3/4

Its not really a great sense of their style as most of the pics are of them going to award shows but who do you think has the best style?
