July Beauty Top 5

Hello lovelies, I hope your all doing well I cannot believe july is over! It seems that here in england we are back to how the weather normally is Very Very rainy. These are a few things that I have been using through out the month and loving so I hope you enjoy...

 I talked more about this product Here but in a nut shell its quite a coarse minty smelling scrub that leaves you feet baby soft. 

Seventeen Backlash mascara £6.49 currently £1.00 off

 I have had this mascara for about a week so it is cheating a little but I love it that much its overtaken my favourite mascara ever seventeen wild curls. The brush is just amazing and gives so much length volume and definition to the lashes. A review is coming up soon. 

 I love this its the first BB cream i've found that keeps oil at bay I love the seventeen BB cream but this is just 100 times better. I love the dewy finish you get, as I find most products leave you with a completely matte finish and I find that can leave your face a bit flat in the summer months.

 This is such a lovely pampering product as all products from N spa do it smells fantastic. I don't particularly see a difference to my skin but it feels so much softer and more hydrated.

 Essence Like a first day of spring. 

 I picked this up when I went to germany for about 4 euros and it is amazing it lasts all day and smells amazing. Its very sweet but slightly floral (I really am terrible at describing scents) I think I might actually cry when it runs out :( 

 So that's what I've been loving this month.
Have you tried any of these products? 

 Til next time

OCC Lip tar - NSFW

Hi there, 

 remember me I used to blog more than once a week. I am very sorry that I am a terrible blogger. Anyway forget the doom and gloom I'm back *jumps and cheers* only me ok.... Today I'm going to review something I promised to review in my colours of the rainbow tag many moons ago so without further a babble I think you've waited long enough! .....

Apologies for the dodgy selfie it was the only one showing its true colour! What a colour this is on the ecosmetics website it is described as a true balanced red, which is exactly what it is not to blue or to orange. The only problem I have with this is the bleeding it bleeds badly even over the top of a lip liner. Other wise it is amazing lasting through eating drinking and never being quiet. For the price it is fantastic quality you need so little product this tube will last ages. If I do buy anymore I would like to try some lighter shades maybe the peach hmmmm......

 Till next time

Guest post - Breakfast at Tiffany's

Hello lovelies, I know I said it last week but apologies for the serious lack of blog posts these past few weeks. I've now finished school for the summer and I have a whole 6 and a half weeks so expect to see more from me. At the moment i'm staying at my aunties in wales so I'm not 100% sure how many posts I will have up but after that expect quite a few. Today I have another guest post for you from the lovely Sophie over at A hint of sparkle I hope you enjoy this post and I hope you pop over and say hi to Sophie. NOTD: Breakfast at Tiffany's Firstly I would like to say a massive thank you to the lovely Nicole for giving me the opportunity to write this post. Tiffany's is a brand guaranteed to make any heart flutter! I for one have a weakness for those iconic blue boxes embossed with the Tiffany & Co logo, and finished off with a perfectly placed white bow (hold on a sec while I drool ha). With my weakness at an all time high (I personally blame one to many late nights scrolling through Pinterest and WeHeartIt ), planning this post was the perfect opportunity to fuel my obsession further, whilst finally having a go at some Tiffany inspired nail art. For the above look I used China Glaze For Audrey. I wouldn't say its the 'perfect' Tiffany blue shade but it comes pretty darn close!! With a little inspiration from Pinterest (there really is an abundance of fabulous nail art designs) I opted for white tips ( I used Models own White Nail Art Pen). Of course Tiffany themed nails would not be complete without a signature white bow!! very much a Nail Art novice I decided to create the above bow using a white Barry M Nail Art Pen (it really is a fool proof tool). I love how simple yet effective the results are!! So there we have it, my attempt at Tiffany inspired nail art. I hope you enjoyed this post, and thanks again Nicole for letting me write it. I blog over at A Hint of Sparkle, I would love it if you came and said hello!! Now does anyone fancy taking me to Tiffany's?! haha

Guest post- A mans perspective... Fearne cotton

Hey lovelies, today I have a guest post for you, I'm looking for more guest posters if your interested please leave me a comment or tweet me @coleoftheball if your interested. Anyway on with the post...

 Hello Lovely readers. I am from the blog "Boy in WomensWear" which is a blog where a Man gives his perspective on female fashion and beauty, because let's face it, You ladies have much more fun when it comes to clothes. The outfit choices and the ranges of the clothes are much more interesting than the usual Jeans, Shirt combo I seem to find myself in. 

 For this Guest Post I shall keep it short and simply discuss to you one of my All time Style Icons. This Lady is somebody whose style is very much the kind of style I like. The lady is the One and Only............Fearne Cotton


Fearne Cotton! Good Ol' nostrils her self ( Celebrity Juice fans will get that ). This Girl wins in the fashion stakes for me simply because she has her own style and adapts it to her surroundings. She is like a chameleon or something. Fearne likes to pull of the punky, Rock chick look sometimes. even having Dyed hair and out their hair cuts at times. BUT she seems to know when to change it up to adapt to some kind of formal event.


Fearne knows when she can glam up and looks great. Her make up brings out her eyes and her face is a picture of beauty in my eyes. For me Fearne is one of those girls who would be the perfect Girlfriend. She can look great in no make up and lounge clothes and then suddenly pull it out the bag for a night out. She is the girl most guys would kill to date too, as her attitude is pretty feisty but laid back.


This post may seem like I am Fan Boying out to her, and you'd be right. I didn't know what to write for a guest post so I thought I would simply show my love for Fearne Cotton. 

 Who are you Fan Girling about? What celeb/or whomever do you simply adore and love? 

Would love to hear yours www.boyinwomenswear.blogspot.co.uk @BinWWblog

The body shop Love your body rewards card.

Hello lovelies, 

 it's been a while since I've posted but i'm back into the swing of blogging. The weather is beautiful here in the uk so I'm thinking of lots of summer posts. I've also got some guest posts lined up so I'm looking forward to writing and reading those. On to todays post, I'm going to be talking about the body shop rewards card. So onto the post...


The Body shop Love your body rewards card - £5 available online and in-store. What a bargain this is, for £5 a year you receive 10% of every purchase at the body shop, members offers, a free gift on your birthday (£5) and free products when you collect stamps (£5 and £10). You also get a free gift when you first buy your card. At the moment the free gift is the peppermint soothing foot scrub which alone is worth £7.00.


I'm so glad that this foot scrub was the free gift, I've heard great things about it but I don't think I would have gone in-store and picked it out myself. Although after trying it a couple of times I absolutely love it!


The stamp system is super simple with each purchase over £10.00 you receive 1 stamp. When you have collected 4 stamps you receive a free gift up to the value of £5.00 and then when you reach 8 stamps you receive a free gift up to the value of £10.00. 

 This is such a bargain if you add up the £5.00 of birthday gifts the £15.00 of stamp gifts and the price of the free gift the card has paid for itself 5.4 times and that's without even counting the 10% off and the member only offers. 

This is such an amazing bargain and I urge anyone who is a fan of the body shop to get one. If you need anymore info feel free to leave me a comment or pop into your local Body shop I always find the ladies in there so lovely! 

 Do you have a Love your body card? 

 Till next time,
