Happy New years ..x

Hey Dolls
I just wanted to wish you all a happy New Year.

I haven't made any resolutions this year as I almost never stick by them long enough then feel crappy at the end of the year for not achieving it. My resoloution for last year was to pass my driving practical, which i did (Yay Me :D) and to carry on learning new things and growing as a person which I feel I have achieved, So I'm just going to say the same for the new year coming, and hopefully be more productive in order to make It a great year, before many more.

And to all my lovely readers, I hope 2015 brings you lots of joy, happiness and Laughter. And I wish you all the best

5 essentials for productivity

Hey Dolls
So its mid October already!!! This year has gone so fast.

We've come to that time of year when the weather is cold and gloomy, the sky is grey and we are sat at work, uni or college counting down the days until the Christmas holidays. This weather has made me feel lazy and just wanting to sit at home under a big duvet, in thick comfy socks watching movies on the laptop (Disney movies are my Guilty Pleasure) and I probably not alone on this.

So for anyone like me, I wanted to share my 5 Essentials for Productivity.

Max Factor - FaceFinity | Review ★★★★☆

Hey dolls

Heres a review on the Max factor - Face Finity - All Day Primer


So I've been using this primer for a while now, A little over a month I Believe. A friend of mine, donated it to me as she received it in a GlossyBox, but swears by her primer and didn't want to try it. So its a win for me :). Before this primer I was originally using a Brightening Face Primer by Benefits (my review) which was my favourite primer for a while but I think this one has come pretty close.
Pros
1.Great price
Only  £10.99 for a 30ml bottle this is a huge saving for me as benifits was £22.50 for 11ml bottle
2. Long lasting
Can take you from day to night
3. Feels good on skin
Very light weight and moisturising, yet helps give a matt finish and eliminates oiliness even without powder
4. Great value
A little can go a very long way, 1 pump is more than enough for my whole face
5. Easy to use
Cute sleek design and easy to use pump which has a handy turn lock
6. Added Bonus
It has SPF 20 for a bit more protection from the elements
Cons
1. Doesn't do much when worn solo, except moisturise I don't get a glow. But thats only a con when compared to Benefits

Verdict
Love's it  - 
Its been great during the warmer weather, hopefully it holds up over the winter. 

Take care

My Summer Favourite : Hottie NOTD

Hey!!!

Summer has officially gone, and Autumn has arrived :(. During the summer, my summer favourite we'll for the past 2 months, I would have to say that this nail varnish by 'L.A. Color' has been my go to summer Shade.
L.A.Colors: Hottie (CNP534)
It is a very fun and playful peachy colour, that has worked well for the summer. I just love how it looks orange in some lights and pink in others.

It complimented most of my summer looks and looked great against a white dress, 'color craze' is slowly becoming my favourite nail brand, they have such a great range of colours, that are long lasting and only cost 99p :)

What was your summer favourite nail colour?

Laura Mercier - Foundation and Loose Powder | Review ★★★☆☆

Hey Dolls

So the foundation I usually use throughout the year is usually a shade darker then I am, I've always done this as my neck is slightly darker and I like the tanned look, I think it gives of a healthy glow. This is also usually an advantage, as my foundation then usually fits me perfect when summer does come around. But this summer however I actually got a lot darker so my  concept didn't work this year :(. However it's not all bad news as it gave me a chance to try out this foundation and loose powder by Laura Mercer. I've been using it since the beginning of August now so I think I can give a decent review so here goes. 
Laura Mercier
 Moisture Surpreme Fondation - Rich Sienna
Invisible Loose Setting Powder - Universal 
Swatches Of the Products
P.S The Powder can actually be blended in a lot more
but I wanted to show it fresh on 
Review
Ok so first of all the overall packaging, It's not very eye catching, it's very simple. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, I think the silver sleek look does add a bit of class and sophistication to the product.

Powder 
Invisible Loose Setting Powder |Colour: Universal|11.34g |John Lewis Price: £29 |link to Product

Pros
1. Its Light Weight, and easy to use
2. It actually is invisible, When applied it gives of a flawless look and matts down the shiny look the foundation gives off.
3. Last all day, No need to re apply
4. A little goes a long way
5. Small & Compact design

Cons
1. If you do accidentally put to much on it can look ghostly which can then take a while to blend in.
2. It Is a bit costly at £29, But you pay for quality

Foundation 
Moisture Supreme Fondation |Colour: Rich Sienna |30ml  |JohnLewis Price: £34 |Link to product
Pros
1. Easy to use pump bottle
2. Great Colour Match 
3. Easy and smooth application with decent coverage

Cons
1. Very Oily, gives off a shiny look if worn without the powder 
2. Stings your eyes if you accidentally get some in. 
3. Quite expensive at £34
4. Strong smell, but that goes once applied to face




Verdict
Overall, I must say that the finishing products together work very well, they defiantly do complement one another.

But separately I am not a fan of the foundation at all, so defiantly won't be purchasing again in a hurry. I do however love the powder, I have tried it with my MaryKay and Mac Foundation and it works wonders so the powder is a WIN!!!!.

Powder:        Foundation: 


Has anyone else used these products or any other by Laura Mercier?

Denman Brush | Review ★★★★★

Hey Dolls

So after looking at loads of hair tutorials on youtube I've realised quite a lot of the curly haired girls were using a Denman brush to style or detangle there hair.  I already had quite a good brush that I would swear by, but I decided to try this one out.
Review
So I've had it this brush for a month now, And I am loving it. It is absolutely great on my thick and very curly 4B/4C hair, It doesn't snag and has cut down my detangling time by nearly half compared to my old paddle brush. It was also a great price at £6.99 from Superdrugs, this was the 'Styling Brush' and they have other types, but I'm happy with this one.

Verdict
★★★★★ - Denman Brush Is A Must

Has anyone else used this brush or any other one from their range?

Henna Designs - First Attempt

Hey Dolls

I hope everyone is having a great may bank holiday weekend, The weather has sure been great in London so thats defiantly a plus.

I just wanted to show you's my first attempt at doing a henna design for my younger cousin. She is attending a culture celebratory party today where she will embracing indian culture during a catwalk, so she asked me to try and do a henna design on her. And this is my results.


So originally we wanted to get the black henna as we thought it would stand out better, but the shop keeper ensured us that people had less reactions to the brown henna, and it was safer since it was her first time having it, he also said that the brown was more traditionally worn in the indian culture. The henna is still wet in the pictures but the final results on both her arms and foot came out just slightly lighter. So we were quite happy with the results. And I was very pleased with my first attempt at designing and my cousin seems to really like it

What do you think? 
Have you ever tried doing a henna tattoo before, or had one done?

3.Dove Hair Therapy - Intensive Repair 60 Second treatment shot 4.Sleek Make up - Pout Polish 5.Bellápierre Cosmetics Ltd - Shimmer Powders & A Glossy Magazine 


So here's a look at what I got inside
