Mandara Spa Island Paradise Intensive Body Scrub- Review

Hi everyone so today I have a review on a new favorite of mine. The Mandara Spa Body Scrub. I picked this up in sainsburys for £8 about 2 weeks ago and I have loved it since then onwards. 

Immerse yourself in the revitalising fragrance of grapefruit and lemon and be transported to an exotic island where the stress and tension of daily and melt away. 
How To Use: Massage into dry or damp skin. Rinse clean to leave skin smooth and soft.

I LOVE this body scrub! I use this twice a week and this leaves my skin feeling so soft! I feel so clean after using this. I love the smell too. I only have 2 negatives to say about this; the price! I think £8 is a little too expensive but that probably won't stop me buying it again. The other thing is the mess it leaves in the bath afterwards. It leaves so many graines behind at the bottom of your bath. I had been looking for a very scrubby/ grainy type scrub for a while and I have definitely found it now!

Sinful Colour Review and Swatch

Hi everyone so today I have a post all about my new favorite nail polish brand. Sinful Colours. These are £1.99 each and in my opinion are worth much much more. Everytime I go into boots I have to pick up another 1 or 2 to add to my collection. I have more sinful colours than any other nail polish brand. They are all very pigmented and there is a great colour selection. 

This is a bright neon matte pink. This looks fantastic with a tan. I do wish it wasn't matte though as I prefer glossy nails to matte ones but I love this polish no less than any of the others.

Call you later is a green glitter polish. It is buildable so it is solid glitter which I love! I love glitter polishes that you can build up to be solid glitter.

Frenzy is another solid glitter polish. This is a mixture of purple and blue glitter chunks. This is my favorite glitter polish by Sinful Colours.

I miss you is also glitter ( I like glitter polishes, don't worry they're not all glitter! Just a few more hehe ). This one is purple and silver solid glitter.

Nail Junkie is a turquoise glitter. It looks a lot more blue on the picture than it is as it is a lot more green in person.

Pink glitter is a pink glitter ( hence the name ) it has a pink base with glitter bits inside of it. Its not a solid glitter like the previous glitters but it is lovely. It is very buildable to get a brighter pink than what it swatched.

Pistache is a pastel green colour which is great for this season and I am all for the pastels. This colour might not be to everyones taste but I really do like it.

Secret admirer is a gun metal type colour. It is a black polish with silver running through it. I haven't worn this yet but I think I will try it out soon, its one of a kind in my collection.

Social Ladder is my least favorite polish by these. I wouldn't have bought it personally but my mum bought it for herself and never liked it so she gave it to me. It is a pearl white colour, not one of my favorites but I might try it out over another polish to see what it looks like.

Soul mate is a pastel nude type colour. This was one of the first I bought and I love it.  Again I haven't got a colour like this at all and I will definitely be wearing this till its all gone.

Thimbleberry is the newest one I have and I am currently wearing it. It is a lovely coral pink which is great for summer.

Unicorn is a pastel yellow colour. Again like the green it is great for this season and it also might not be to everyones taste but I love it and that's all that matters right?

Last but not least we have reached my favorite of the whole collection. Why not. A brilliant eye catching neon blue. This is the brightest blue polish I have seen and I love it! I have worn this so many times since I bought it.

Which is your favorite sinful colour polish?

T Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips Review

Hey everyone so today I have a review for you all. I have a few reviews to go up but I will try and put other posts in between so it isn't a review overload for you all! I picked up these T-Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips on fragrance direct for £1.99 but the normal price is £4.99.

T-Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips have been specially formulated to grab onto blackheads, dirt and grease lifting them away. Help remove spot causing bacteria. Unclog pores to help skin breathe. Be specially shaped for use over the bridge of the nose.
To use: Wash your face and pat your face dry. Thoroughly wet your nose. Peel the strip off the plastic backing and apply the smooth side to your nose. Gently press down. Leave for 10 minutes then peel off.

These smelt very strong of tea tree. When I peeled them off my nose I have to admit, it hurt! I used these once a week. They did work very well as when I got them off my nose you could see all the dirt on the other side. Being the silly person I am, I forgot to take a picture of that! My nose did feel very clean when I had used these though. So all in all I did like these and I will be getting more.

Sheffield Spending Ban.

Hey everyone so I am going on a spending ban. I have tried and failed this twice before but as it is getting closer to me going to Sheffield I am starting to realise if I don't start saving up soon I will have no money for Sheffield. I am going to Sheffield on 24th August so from today up until that day I am going to spend no money at all. I have a tin to put my money in which I get which can't be opened unless you use a can opener, so once the money goes in I won't be able to get it back out until I go to Sheffield. When I go there I am planning on going to MAC and Models Own as I can't get them where I live. I know this spending ban will be hard but I am more determined than ever to do it now. I will update you every friday telling you how much money I saved in that week, If I bought something and What I am trying not to buy. 
Thanks Guys

10 Under £10

Hi everyone so today I am going to be doing a 10 for £10 post. I also have a video of this here. I recently done a post and video on my 5 for £5. Most of the products mentioned in this post could have gone in my 5 under £5 one, lets just say I like to find cheap things!

First up is my rimmel stay matte powder. I love this powder to pieces and I will keep on repurchasing for the rest of my makeup life. This is amazingly cheap at only £3.99

I also have my everyday foundation here too which is the seventeen miracle matte foundation. I use this foundation most the time. This is one of the most expensive things on this post at £5.99.

I also have my barry m nail art pen. I have two of these one in black and the other one in white. These are like felt tips and are so easy to use on your nails to get cute and simple nail art. These are £4.99 and worth every penny.

I also have this Collection Smokey eye kit. I picked this up not that long ago and I love it. It has 9 eyeshadows and a tutorial on the back showing you how to get the perfect smokey eye using this kit. This costs £4.19.

Need I say anything about my next product? This is the concealer every beauty guru has ( slight exaggeration). The lasting perfection concealer by collection. I like many others love this concealer. This costs £4.19
I also have my revlon lip butter. I have the shade creme brulee which is a very sheer light brown nude colour. I would prefer this to be a little more of a lipstick type finish but I wear this for school as it isnt too in your face. I would like to get more colours of these. This is the most expensive thing here on my post at £7.99.
I also have the maybelline colour show nail varnishes. I have 4 of these. 2 of the polka dots (1 shown in picture) 2 of the normal ones. I have pink polka dot, Rain Forest Canopy, Urban Turquoise and Urban Coral. These are £2.99.
Another favorite of mine is this scandal eyes shadow stick. I adore this shadow stick! I want to get more of these in a lot more colours, I also want to try the scandal eye eyeliner too.  These cost £4.49.
Next up is my collection Cream Puff. I adore this! It is a lovely matte colour that stays on your lips for a good few hours. I also love the feel of this on my lips. I will be picking up the other two shades of these. These cost £2.99.
The final thing on my 10 under £10 is the maybelline colour 24hr tattoo. I have it On and On bronze. I love these they are so easy to use. I just put it on my finger then sweep it over my eyes and then vawallaa done. These cost £4.99.

5 under £5

Hey everyone so today I am going to be doing a 5 for under £5 post. I have also done a video on this over on my youtube channel. I will also be going a 10 for under £10 so keep yours eyes peeled for that one!

First off is these makeup brushes from claires. They come in packs of 5 for £5. I have had two sets of these now, currently the black sparkly ones, I only have one of the pink ones left now. 

Next up is my MUA liquid eyeliner. I have had this for ages now and I have only just started using this as I could never get the line straight then out of nowhere I could and now I love this. This is £1.

Another MUA product for you is the new power pouts. I have 3 of these and I love them! I have Rendervous, broken hearted and run away. These are £3 and great value for money.

Another item I have is the Miss Sporty Nail Varnishes. I have about 6 of these and I love them all. The only thing I don't like that is that they don't have names for there shades. These are £1.99.

The final product is Barry M nail varnish in general. I have about 18 altogether! Some gelly, some normal, some glitter and a few textured. They are by far my most favorite nail polish brand. The prices of these range from £2.99-£3.99.

My Do's and Don'ts for makeup!

Hi guys so today I thought I would do a fun type of post for you. I came to decide that I was going to do a do and don't makeup look. Half of my face being how you should do your makeup and the other side with how you shouldn't. Obviously I'm not saying you have to do your makeup how I have shown  I am just doing my version of how I would prefer to look and then how I wouldn't and what I think looks silly when I see people like it.

 1. Foundation that is way too dark for you and not blended in properly.
2. Thick dark eyebrows.
3. Bright pink- heavy applied blusher.
4. Dark lipliner with light lipstick/gloss.
5. Bright eyeshadow all the way up the lid to near the eyebrow.
5. Ridiculously long winged eyeliner
6. Dark contour/bronzer.


1. Foundation that matches your skin colour- blended in well.

2.  Wear an eyeshadow/liner that suites you- don't go to high with the colour.
3. Go light with blusher- not too heavy handed.
4. Go natural with eyebrows- don't make them look obviously fake.
5. Lip liner that matches the colour of the lipstick you are going to wear.

What are your make-up do's and don'ts?

SkinArt UK

Hi guys so I was recently sent some things to review from SkinArt UK, and I thought I would share with you what they sent me. I was lucky to receive the amount of products that I did I will give a little review to each of the things they sent to me.

First off they sent me some coloured hair sprays. These didn't excite me too much when I seen them as I have black hair so the colours won't really show up on my hair but I have had a little brainwave to spray the bits white then spray on the other colour over the top. I received 3 of these; Purple, White and Blue.

 I also received 6 nail polishes; I have tried them all out and as much as I love the colours they don't last very long at all :( the colours I got were (L-R)  Powder Puff Pink, Shine Bright Like A Diamond, Just Like Parma Violet, What Colour Is Coral, It's Crystal Clear and Out Of The Blue.

They also sent me some temporary tattoo's. I love these as they are such girlies designs! They sent me 3 packs; Love Is Enough, In Your Own Words, I'm A Dreamer.

Last of all they sent me some nail tattoos; I love these so much! They are very cute and easy to apply to my nails!

Hope you all enjoyed this post!
