January Glossy Box!

 So here it is in all it's glory, the January Glossy Box all in the mood for love! With valentines day approaching Glossy Box have taken a very pink and fluffy approach this month, which is lovely! I'm not a huge valentines fan myself but I think this looks so sweet, who doesn't like a little box full of love!
1. EYEKO Skinny Eyeliner - I got mine in 'Plum'! Who else got this? The application was really smooth  and produced a glossy rich colour, of course it's different to your usual black liner but I'm pretty sure this is the sort of colour you could pull off wearing on a day to day basis, it's quite subtle. Looking at the other colours that are available, I am quite glad I got this one. As for the appearance of the liner itself, it has a very long silver point on the end! Which I suppose looks a bit different and quirky but it doesn't fit in my makeup bag! :(
2. MURAD Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer - Dewy finish - This is great for me, an oil free primer that gives a dewy finish and a radiant glow 'powered by light enhancing minerals'. My combination skin is prone to a bit of dryness and oiliness so to have an oil free primer is a bonus. The packaging reminds me a lot of the mac primer, I hope it's better than that!
3. WELEDA One Step Cleanser & Toner - Perfect! What a good idea to roll both cleanser and toner into one product. I'm really unhappy with my current brand so I can't wait to give this one a go. The packing could be more exciting... but I'm sure it's what's inside that counts!
4. ORLY Nail Lacquer - They got the colour spot on with this one, a deep, rich valentines red. I've just applied two coats of this and got really got results. The brush is very easy to use and the colour provides a good even coverage, and super quick drying time! I can't stand varnishes that take forever to dry. I am a massive fan of red nails and I really like this one. Thumbs up!
5. FAB Gentle Body Wash - As someone with sensitive skin I love seeing the word 'gentle' on a body product, and it does exactly what it says on the bottle. It's moisturising and feels silky smooth on your skin, it has a lovely clean smell and left me feeling gorgeous and non - irritant! :)
You can imagine the smile on my face when I found this buried in the box. Thank you Glossy Box for my valentines sweetie!!!  nom nom nom.

Catch up & chit chat

So my new little blog has been up and running for about a week now and its still (extremely) fresh!! Buuuut I have lots of exciting ideas and thoughts wizzing round my head :) so stay tuned! Really looking forward to getting my next Glossy Box so I can do my first ever official review which should be fun, the last one was gorgeous but I had ripped it apart and had a go at everything in it before I even thought of snapping a few photos. As for me I've been having a very relaxing (lazy) week off of work, I've been reading lots of books, eating lots of crap, drinking lots of crap, watching crap tv. Nice. I had a little sad moment the other day taking all my uniform and things to return to my previous job, booooo! And no, I did not get fired! The decision to leave was entirely mine but I couldn't help feeling a little bit sad. Oh well. Onwards and upwards and back to my new job next week!
Oh also, I've been having so many ideas about things I want to blog about which are not strictly related to beauty or fashion but instead.... wait for it... gaming. Because if you didn't know already, I'm a massive dork. SO the idea of starting a gaming blog has also popped into my head! It's still early days though, baby steps.

January Sales - Shoes!

How sweet are these?! I have to say, I've got some abosolute bargains in the sales this year and these came in the post today, yaaaay! They were just £10 from Urban Outfitters, amazing. Planning on being able to step out of my winter boots and put these on soon.

New year, new nails?

This beauuuuutiful corally-hot pink was picked up on a quick dash around non other than.... New Look! Everybody does it, you're in the line waiting to pay and just as you get close to the till, the sneaky sneaky people at New Look (or where ever) has cleverly placed a range of lovely crap right there for you to stare at and eventually convince yourself that you must buy. On this occasion there were nail wraps, eye lashes etc and then this! Love love LOVE it, and of course, I had to have it.
Although the application with this is a bit gloopy and transparent, eventually after about 3 coats you get this lovely colour, can't get enough. Especially since I've been mourning Christmas with my festive reds and glitter recently (boo hooooo) I thought it would be nice to get in gear for spring/summer now. I've never seen this brand before and the colour doesn't even have a name... but I guess it must be exclusive to New Look and I definitely recommend!

Pretty Polariods


 I am a huuuuge photography geek and I just love snapping these little polariods. Even though I might not be any good at it, it still think it's such a fun way of capturing little memories to keep forever. The cute thing about these in particular is the fact that they are 'mini' meaning they are roughly the same size as a credit card, just small enough to fit in your purse. ADORABLE! These are the polariods I keep on my bedroom wall, along with a few other trinkets. The camera I use is a Diana f+ (in hot pink of course!) the camera alone doesn't produce polaroids as I had to buy an instant back as a sort of 'add on' for it, but I absolutely adore using it and I promise to get better with practise! Any tips welcome!
