New Things :)

Here's a few things I have picked up over the past few days..

From Left to right: Revlon Nail Enamel in 040 Fuchsia Fever, 093 Tropical Temptation, 345 Peach Smoothie (Scented), Nails Inc In Porchester Square, Fashion Fawn, Electric Teal, Candy Orange. 

I'm  pretty miffed about buying Porchester square when Fashion Fawn is so similar (and was free!), but I love the colour so I guess it doesn't matter that  much.

Fuchsia Fever, my new favourite bright pink:

I really love the Revlon Nail Enamels. They apply really nicely and last for ages without chipping or peeling!

Sanctuary Body Scrub, Soap & Glory Hand Food

And now for the most exciting part. I bought the Liz Earle Skincare essentials kit in Combination/Oily, and ohmygod I cannot wait to try everything out! It was about £42 from John lewis. 
It contains: 2 muslin cloths, 50ml Skin Repair Light Moisturiser, 100ml Cleanse & Polish, 200ml Instant Boost Skin Tonic, 50ml Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion and a 15ml sample of the Gentle Face Exfoliator.
AND it all comes in this really cute bag, which i will definately be using when I travel in the summer!

I've decided that I am going to wait to use the Liz Earle products until I use some of  my other cleansers and moisturisers up - I have WAY too many, and I need an incentive to finish them anyway!

Until next time! X

P.S. I'm really sorry for not replying to your comments, for some reason my laptop won't let me :(

Just A Dream?

Review: Good Things Dream Cream Night Cream

I bought this a couple of weeks ago and I honestly couldn't wait any longer to review it.

Dream cream is 'a light but nourishing night cream enriched with avocado oil, shea butter and fig extracts. These are intensive natural moisturisers that soften and rehydrate your skin while you get some beauty sleep.' Sounds good, eh?

The first thing I noticed about this cream was the smell. Don't get me wrong though, it smells amazing. I would tell you what it smells like, but I'm awful at describing scents. All I will say is that it smells really nice, and quite calming which is obviously good when you're about to go to sleep. Anyway, I was slightly concerned about this smell, as I thought it would break me out. I could not have been more wrong.

The first time I applied this cream, I was having a pretty awful skin day. Blemishes, dryness, the whole package. When I woke up in the morning, however, my skin had totally transformed. My spots were almost cleared up, and it had really evened out my skintone. I have been using it non-stop ever since, and my skin has been noticeably clearer and healthy looking. It is fairly pricey for the size - around £8/9 for 50ml, however I do think it is worth it, and will definately be repurchasing! I absolutely love it, and would reccomend it to anyone, as I do think that it would suit most skin types!

A little haul :)

I've decided to postpone my 30 day challenge as I simply do not have the time with exams and everything.

So heres a few things I picked up today. Went out to look for a prom dress and failed, but I did pick these up as my skin is going crazy at the moment and I wanted to get some new products to try out. Reviews to come soon.. If the exams don't kill me!

Days 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 (oooops!)

Day 4 - Favourite book:

To be honest I don't read many books. I used to love the Twilight Saga before the films ruined them, and also the Georgia Nicholson books are hillarious. Chris Ryan writes some great action books too, but as I said I don't read much so I don't really have a favourite!

Day 5 - Favourite Quote

'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.' It seems sort of jokey, but I really think it has a great meaning. Whenever it seems like everything is going wrong, just embrace life and deal with it.

Day 6 - Whatever tickles your fancy

A quick Review - Vaseline Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Lotion

The other day I realised that I was coming towards the end of my bottle of this and it made me realise just how much I love it. I have a fairly large collection of body lotions, butters, etc, and find that a lot of them can feel quite sticky and uncomfortable on my skin. This however does not. It lasts all day and leaves my skin feeling amazing. The smell is lovely too. Plus its only around £2! Definately repurchasing.

Day 7 - A Photo that makes you happy

I'll give you a couple ;)

This is my beautiful loan horse Ed smiling for the camera. He's such a character and never fails to make me laugh <3

Biffy, nuff said <3

Day 8 - A photo that makes you sad

To be honest I dont think I have any. I was going to use a photo of my cat who sadly died last year, but all the photos I have of him hold good memories instead of sad ones. And Its the same with all other photos I've taken. I take them to remind me of something beautiful or to capture happy times, not sad ones!

P.S. Wooww post backlog. Been super busy with revisiono (first exam on Thursday!) hence the slight delay, will do my best to keep going! Until tomorrow (hopefully!) X

Day 2 - Favourite Movies

Be prepared for another essay!

These are films that I can watch over and over again and never get bored of:
  • Slumdog Millionaire - such an amazing feel-good film.
  • Four Weddings and a Funeral - quite possibly one of the funniest films ever.. I hate Hugh Grant, but love him in this!
  • Forrest Gump - such an incredible film.. always makes me laugh and then cry, Tom Hanks is class!
  • Saving Private Ryan - I'm a bit of a war film addict, and this is by far my favourite.. made the mistake of watching it last Christmas and I was in floods in front of my whole family :/
  • Bourne Films - All three are so amazing, (Matt Damon <3)
  • Disney Films in general (Little Mermaid, Lion King, Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, etc) - I've recently become re-obsessed with all things Disney.. Brings back soo many good memories, and is it bad that I have half the songs on my iPod?!
  • Toy Story - Absolute favourite Disney film. I was ridiculously excited when Toy Story 3 came out, and cried so much when they were about to die <3
  • The Proposal - such a brilliant film, I think Sandra Bullock is an amazing actress, and phwoooorr Ryan Reynolds ;)
  • The Hangover - so funny, always makes me laugh uncontrollably :L
Thankyou for reading, and please let me know what your favourite films are, I'm a bit obsessed ;)
