One of the first beauty products which I got into was nail polishes. I honestly became addicted extremely quickly so it was only right for me to jump on the bandwagon over these beauties by Barry M. I wanted to give you guys a in depth review hence why I am a bit late on joining the beauty bloggers review of these polishes however better late than never, that’s what I always say! The quality of the polishes are really good compared to the original shades. They deliver a nice opacity after one or two coats depending on how light the shade is. I think Barry M have brought out a brilliant range of colours suitable for any occasion, with new shades being brought out every season. When I see a new shade which has appeared on the shelves I feel as though I need to buy it immediately to complete my collection. The range is priced at £3.99 which I think is very as you are getting a long lasting, high quality nail varnish for such a reasonable price. As a student the price is certainly friendly for a treat here and there and I am usually the person who goes on whether the colour is pretty but since finding these beauties, I have went straight towards the Barry M stand more than any other. They usually last about a week completely chip free (with a top coat applied) which for a drugstore brand is excellent. My go-to favourites are Green Berry, Blood Orange, Watermelon and Blackberry.

Have you tried the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polishes?

The Sunday Post: A Coastal Stroll

So Phill and I went to Whitley Bay at the weekend for some good old coastal atmosphere, you know the kind where you hear children playing and laughing, and just general enjoy being out in the sun and listening to the sounds of the sea. I also thought I would take the opportunity to show off some of the photos which we took on our little day out. We finished the day of with a delicious helping of Sunday Dinner before going home to watch Disney movies. (He is already winning brownie points for that!). I also got to spend some quality time with my favourite short haired dog as well. What’s not to love about that?!

What’s your favourite thing to do when the sun comes out to play?

Lush Treats

The other week I stumbled into Lush on numerous amount of occasions and with this being my most favourite shop EVER! I couldn’t help but ‘treat’ myself to some of my favourites and their Easter goodies.

This is what I got;
  • Dragon’s Egg – a lovely citrus smelling bath bomb with a special hidden surprise.
  • Sakura – a floral/jasmine scented bath bomb with florescent pink splats (no word of a lie, this is the reason I picked it up).
  • Fizzbanger – a bright yellow, lemon scented bath bomb perfect for a refreshing well needed bath.
  • Fluffy Egg – if for lovers of the Snow Fairy collection which they bring out during the Christmas season, its sweet scent just makes me want to eat it!
  • Golden Egg – a lovely gold glitter covered bath bomb which smells of orange, honey and toffee.
  • Bunny Bubble Bar – this cute little fella can be used numerous amounts of times and has the same sweet smelling scent as the Fluffy Egg bath bomb.
  • Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask – a brought this because I am getting sick of breaking out all the time and have literally tried everything so hopefully this is going to help combat those horrible spots.
For better descriptions, feel free to check their website. If you want me to write up any reviews of any of the products just let me know and I would happily do so.
Have you brought anything from Lush recently?

The Sunday Post: The Lake District

Toodlepip my lovelies, I have just got back from The Lake District! Do you ever get that feeling where your days just seem to roll into one because you feel as though everything is just happening so fast that you can’t find any time to just breathe and take a chill pill for five? Well that’s how my life has been recently with sorting things out and trying to spend time with my friends as well as college so when I found out that I was going to be spending some time in the Lake District I was over the moon and just felt as though it was just the perfect time to reflect on life. Some people don’t really see the importance of taking some time out of your life to do this but trust me a little break now and again is just the thing which we need. It was nice to be able to wake up to nothing but the sound of birds and the general countryside for the past couple of days.

Do you ever escape life to a place which makes you happy? Have you ever been to the Lake District?
