Lush Lip Srub- Mint Julips

Hello lovelies, today I have a review on this saviour! Lush lip scrub in mint julips. I previously had bubblegum which I loved so much but that was a few years ago now and I thought it was time I picked another one up, this one was recommended to me by one of the lovely ladies who works in my local lush as she knew I liked this kind of scent.
I have really dry lips so one of these is crucial to me to keep my lips feeling soft and not chapped.

This is a caramel type colour and smells so good. It smells like after eight mints and tastes the same. I have to admit though the lady in the shop told me it was chocolate but I can't taste chocolate in this it all.
I use this more than once a day especially at this time of year when my lips are getting dry.
I put my nivea lip butter on after this to make my lips extra soft!

This costs £5.50 and is from lush.
Have you tried any of the lip scrubs? Which is your favorite?

What I did this week #3

Hello my lovelies! Happy Sunday! It's time for my what I did this week post again. It is a little more exciting than last week! But still could have been better. I love doing this post because I can look back in a while and see what I was doing on certain dates, like a little diary but public!

Sunday- I had a lazy day again, wrote up my blogging schedule for the next few weeks, wrote some posts and took pictures! Very organized for once.

Monday- I basically done the same as Sunday, I was supposed to go into work but I was still in so much pain that I couldn't.

Tuesday-  I went back to work! I forgot how much I enjoyed it! Was a busy day, really starting to get me into the mood for Christmas now!

Wednesday- Back to college! It was great to see everyone! One of the girls had been for her pregnancy scan so was showing us all her little baby. I practiced manicure ready for bringing a client in for assessment next week!

Thursday-  I went to college, I was in so much pain, my tuter kept telling me to go home but I wouldn't! We done facials to start off in the morning, I was supposed to have something called group tutorial which is basically just life skills but my tuter for that was off so we went in with level 2's and learned shellac! I then had maths and English which was boring! 

Friday- This was come to college in your oneise day for my class for children in need. I also tried the new costa chocolate and orange mocha latte and I have to say it was lovely! I sadly got sent home from college as I was still ill, gutted that I never got to take part in the fund raising but well done to my girls who raised £124.45 for children in need.

Saturday- Remember last week? Yes, the exact same happened again although I got a cheeky little x-ray thrown in too! Still the same, another injection and I am to see how it carries on through the next few days.

What did you do this week?

#BritishBloggerSelection- Favorite Clothes Shop

Hey everyone so this week for the #BritishBloggerSelection we have to write a post up about favorite clothes shop. I haven't got 1 favorite so I am going to do my top 3.
Where I live we don't have that many shops to buy clothes, I am going to tell you the two I always buy from in my city and one that I buy from if I am near one.

Newlook- We have one in my city and for years this was the only clothes shop I went in as all the other ones were expensive and as I was younger I couldn't afford to shop anywhere else. Newlook is still a firm favorite and I think it always will be.

Internacionale- Since we have had this shop in my city which isn't that long I have always gone in here, I love how it is cheap-ish and have some great clothes. We have had internacionale a few times but I hope this time it is here to stay.

Primark- This is my favorite clothes shop and sadly we don't have one where I live! The nearest one is in Newcastle so around 1 hour and a half away. I love how it is so cheap and they have some lovely clothes in there. I hope one day we get Primark here!

What's your favorite clothes shop?

Children In Need 2013

Hi everyone, as today is Children In Need today, that's what my post is going to be on. My class at college decided to come to college in our onesie's and raise money by going round the college and into our town center with buckets for children in need. I was going to take lots of pictures to add to my post today but unfortunatly I got sent home from college poorly so I couldn't take part in the fun :(. Luckily I have a few pictures of my oneise, nails and my face as I also went bearfaced as they calling it.

OUTFIT
This is one of my onesies. I chose to wear this one today to go in to college. This onesie is from Primark about a year and a half ago, I think it was £12 but not too sure.

NAILS
Here are my nails that I had today. I painted them all yellow apart from my ring finger which was white. I then added a white strip on my thumb to look like Pudsey's bandanna  On my ring finger I added the spots that are the colour of the the spots on Pudsey's bandanna and same with the white strip on my thumb. I then done a bear's face on my thumb making it look like Pudsey.

FACE
You might be aware that a lot of celebrities this year are going 'bearfaced' which means no makeup and having a black pawprint on there face for children in need. I also done this for college as I thought it was just a good idea to do as so money other people are doing it.

I am not sure how much my class raised for children in need as I had to go home, when I left we had raised £10 but that was just us all paying £1 each, they were going around the college with buckets when I left them so hopefully they raised a lot!

What have you done for Children In Need?

Christmas Gift Guide- Adults

Hey everyone so as we are nearing the festive time of year I thought I would do a series of gift guides. I am going to be doing these every Thursday for the next 4 weeks.
I am starting off today with a gift guide for adults. I am going to pick a few men and women ideas. Obviously these ideas aren't to everyone's taste as everyone is different but here are some that I think are good ideas. I know there is more ideas for women than men but I really couldn't think of any more ideas for men.

WOMEN

Yankee Candles.
Candles are a great gift especially at this time of year when you get home from work get in your PJ's. put the fire on light a few candles and cosy up under  a blanket with a hot chocolate! You can never really go wrong with a candle and Yankee have to be the best make out there. They have price range starting at £1.75 and finishing at £19.49. You can get them online at www.yankee.co.uk and in shops such as Clinton card's etc.

Cath Kidston Bag
Women love bags and that is a fact! So why not treat your mum/friend/grandma to a Cath Kidston bag. These bags are very pretty and girly, you can get flowery ones, spotty ones and many more designed ones. They also have matching purses, you can also get other gifts too such as mugs, pencils and hand creams. The bags price range from as little as £4.00 and go up to £115. You can get them online at www.cathkidston.com

Lush Gift Set
Women love a nice hot bubble bath and thats a fact. Lush are great at giving you products to give you the best bath time experience ever. With bath bombs that fizz and turn your water a different colour, bubble bars that you crumble under running water to give you lots of bubbles. The smells are to die for. Lush have a great range of gift sets for you starting as little as £4.25 and as much as £100.00 you can get these online at lush.co.uk or in your local lush shop

Marc Jacobs Daisy
This is a very popular perfume, I myself  have this perfume and love it. This perfume pops up on so many perfume favorite posts and such like and I can tell why. Marc Jacobs do so many nice perfumes so if Daisy isn't to your taste there will be one in his range. The price of this ranges from £47.50 to £63.50 and you can get this in perfume shops and online.

Onesie/Pyjama's
Now, what women doesn't love new pjyama's? Onesies too! So why not get one for them! I love my onesies to cosy up on a night infront of the fire with candle's lit after a nice relaxing bath with a mug of hot chocolate. I love getting new PJ's and getting in them for the first time. I think that all women  have a love for nightwear. I just used this picture as an idea, you can get pyjama's and onesies almost anywhere and you can get them very cheap from as little as around £5.

MEN
Male Grooming Kit
Ok, so us women love pampering ourselves, making ourself feel and look pretty. But what about men? Do they ever take as much time as us women? With this kit you could make any man want to take care of himself more than ever! In the kit you get a hair trimmer, scissors, nail clippers and many more items. For what you get I don't think the price tag of £24.99 is that bad. You can find it online here.



Wallet and Coin purse
My dad is always after a new wallet as somehow they always seem to fall apart on him. If this is the same with your dad or another male you need to buy for then why not get him a new one for Christmas. This wallet here is £35.  It has compartments for your cards, notes and you change. This one is from John Lewis.

Watch
Watches are stylish and a great accessory, they also help to keep you on time. You can never have too many watches, a different one for every outfit perhaps? I love the colour of the on in the picture. The one in the picture is from Argos and is £39.99.

Next Thursday I have Gift Idea's for teenagers.

Beauty Blender

y
Hey guys so today I have a review on the beauty blender. I got this a while a go on ebay for 99p off this seller. I use this everyday to apply my foundation and I love it. I had seen everyone going on about these for ages in the blogging world but never got round to getting one but i am so pleased that I did now! I don't think there has been a day gone by where I haven't used this since getting it. The only down side is how long I waited for it to come as it came all the way from hong kong. 

Have you tried a beauty blenders?

Much love

Barry M Natural Glow Palette

Hey everyone so today I have review for you! I haven't done a review in what feels like the longest time ever but here we are.
I picked up this little beauty around a week a go and I love it. It is a great compact palette for on the go as it has 6 shadows and 1 blusher inside of.

As you can see the palette contains 6 neutral eye shadows and a pink blusher. I love my neutral colour eye shadows which if you have been following me for a while you will know that I love my neutral eye shadows although I taking a step out of my comfort zone and trying different colours. I am not a one that wears blusher lots too but I really like the blusher in this as it isn't too bright and blends in well on my face.

The pigmentation of these shadows are really good. The lighters ones are harder to see on the white background but they are pigmented. I am dissapointed that you can't see the first two swatches :(. 
All in all I love this palette. I am tempted to get the other two palettes too!
This is £6.49 and available in boots and superdrug.

Have you tried this? Whats your views on it?

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder- £3.99
NYC show time mascara- £1.99
Barry M natural glow shadow and blush palette- £6.49

What I did this week #2

Hey everyone so its Sunday which means it is time for my What I did this week post!
This week hasn't been a very good week for me so this post is going to be very boring. I am not looking for sympathy at all with this post, I am starting this series and I am sticking to it no matter how boring it is!

Sunday- I stayed in bed all day because I was starting with flu!

Monday- I went to work which I really shouldn't of done!

Tuesday- I stayed in bed all day reading blog posts!

Wednesday- I went into college as I was only in for a few hours and I done manicure!

Thursday- I ended up at the doctors on a nebuliser as I couldn't breath properly. On the night I was at the emergency doctors with the same problem but they didn't do anything!

Friday- I went back to the doctors as I was still struggling to breathe and had a big pain in my lungs. They sent me home with tablets. My mums friend came round on the night and we had a laugh, which made me feel a bit better!

Saturday- I spent the whole day in hospital! We finally found out what is wrong, due to my flu I have pulled the main muscles around my ribs that is causing the same amount of pain as it would if I have broken ribs. I had to have a needle in my leg to stop me being sick and am now finally on the mend. On a happier note I got my first ever MAC lipstick and two maybelline colour tattoo's.

Hope you all had a better week than me!
What did you get up to?

Much love

Lee Stafford Chop Stick Curler.

 
 
 
Hey everyone so today I have a review on my new favorite hair tool. The Lee Stafford Chopstick Curler.
This curler gives really tight ringlets which I have been trying to achieve for ages but could never find the right tool.




It took me about 1 hour and a half to do my hair with this but I had to straighten it firs as my hair is very frizzy so it went horrible the first time I tried it on my self. Once it was straight I put my hair up into a pony tail then pulled little strands out to curl. As you can see from the above picture they are very tight ringlets.
 
 
 
I slept on them that night and woke up expecting the curls to have gone but they had dropped and were looking so much more natural.


I am in love with this hair tool and I will now on be wearing my hair curly a lot more. If you would like to see a video tutorial on my Youtube of me using this let me know in the comments and I will.
 I got mine from argos but you can get them from most stores that sell hair tools and this cost me £25 which in my eyes is a bargain.

What tool do you use to get nice curls in your hair?

Anxiety.

Hi everyone so today is a different type of post for you all, hope you don't mind. I have seen a few bloggers mention they suffer from anxiety and I have seen a few posts about it too so when I asked on twitter if people would want to see this a huge amount of you said yes.
My anxiety started last September when I had been off school ill for a very long time and it was time for me to go back and I realized I couldn't. The thought of having to go in a class with everybody scared me. I started having panic attacks and couldn't go. Throughout the time I was ill etc I didn't see anybody and I stayed in my house as I was too scared too leave.
That October somebody was hammering on my front door all through the night and that really started off my anxiety and panic attacks again. The night after that I started with a serious panic attack at 7pm. I was getting palpitations, legs were numb, couldn't breath, shaking and chest pain. My mum was trying everything to calm me down but nothing was working. By the time it got to 11pm my mum rang the out of hours doctors for me to go up there to be checked over. I finally stopped with the panic attack as I was leaving the hospital at around midnight. The out of hours doctor was useless and just said to me I had to wait until the morning baring in mind I couldn't breath.
The next morning I went to the doctors and they were just as useless and told me they couldn't do anything as I hadn't been suffering for long.
This February it all started up again, the school nurse who I worked with as I was still not going to lessons offered to do some breathing techniques with me but she never. In the months where I had no bother with it I managed to get myself a job which I am still at now. 
When I was working it did effect me a little as I have to communicate with a lot of people which I find hard sometimes.
In April I had my college interview which again set of a panic attack as I knew I was going to have to be around lots of people for it. Turned out it was fine though.
Recently I was trained on the till at work. I was good at first as I wasn't having to serve lots of people at once but over the last few weeks I have been left alone to deal with a que of 6 people. That's not a lot normally but where I work they all want food and drinks which I also had to do as well as the till. 
This again caused my anxiety to flare up and I have been suffering really bad this last week to the point I have been having panic attacks before I go. I told my boss my problem and she gave the rest of week of. I am still yet to hear back of when I am going.
I have been considering leaving my job now and going into something I enjoy and that is a lot less busy.
I am starting college this September and I am so scared and I know my anxiety will start up again but I hope it won't be too bad.

If any of you suffer with anxiety feel free to drop me an email if you would like to talk to me. You can use the contact form on the side.

Monday Blogger Interview #6- Hayley from Water Painted dreams.

Hi everyone so today I have another blogger interview for you. Today is it with Hayley from Water Painted Dreams.



Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.
Hello my name is Hayley, and I'm a 16 year old blogger from Scotland. I started my blog, Water Painted Dreams, about a year and a half ago and fell in love with blogging. I would say my blog is a mixture between a beauty blog and a lifestyle blog with a bit of fashion thrown in as well.

What made you start blogging?
I watched a lot of beauty YouTubers and saw that they all had blogs. I was too  shy to make videos so I started a blog instead.

What 1 item can you not leave the house without?
Probably my phone, not because I'm constantly on it but because I get paranoid that I might need to call someone for help if an emergency occurs. 

What is your favorite makeup brand?
Probably Sleek or No7 or Urban Decay, I can't choose!

What shop do you love?
My top 3 are Lush, Waterstones and Topshop.

Which product do you think is not hyped up enough?
The No7 cream blushes are amazing and I've never heard another blogger talk about them

Who are your favorite bloggers? 
All the people that I make videos with for Paperbacks and Beauty Facts :)

What 1 tip would you give to a new blogger?
Just keep working hard and producing great content and eventually your following will build!

Any last things you would like to say?
Just a massive thank you for interviewing me!
