Squeaky Clean Glow Stopper Instant Matte Tan Review!

31 July 2015


I think I can safely say that I probably will not be going abroad this year - saving up for big things in the future does cost a lot! Unfortunately that means that if I want anything that resembles a tan, I'm probably going to have to fake it. 

A few months ago now I brought the entire Creighton's Squeaky Clean range from Lidl and slowly but surely I'm testing out all of them in turn and since I was looking for a bit of colour, I thought it would be a perfect time to test out their Glow Stopper instant matte tan gel!

As all the products were 99p, I wasn't really expecting the highest of quality from this lotion but price tag aside, I was still looking to becoming a golden goddess.

Unforunately this didn't happen.

The only way I can describe the application was like I was applying BBQ sauce to my legs - without the smell obviously! It was super runny and it look forever to rub into my legs and even then you could still see where the streaks were. 

The colour itself was slightly a bit too orange for me and I don't think it could be passed as "natural". Luckily for me it easily washed off in the shower so I didn't have to walk around with Wotsit legs. And as for the matte tan? There was no so matte whatsoever.

"Head turning tan"? Yes, because they're all wondering why my legs are orange!

I will definitely not be buying this again and I'm glad that I didn't waste too much money on it. Sorry Creighton's but this was a bit of a fail product!


My 25th Birthday Wishlist!

29 July 2015


With just under a few weeks until my 25th birthday, I would now would be a perfect time to create my birthday wishlist! This was actually quite hard as there's not much that I want so a few of these might be a little unrealistic. A girl can dream though, right?

birthday wishlist

1. Pandora charm. I really love my Pandora bracelet and it's even nicer to receive new charms to add to your collection. The only that really caught my eye and which I've included in the wishlist is the Happiness charm. I love charms that have a special meaning and I thought that I could do with a little happiness in my life! 

2. Crazy Cat Lady mug. Just so I can show everybody just how much I love cats.

3. Primark gift card. What can I say? I love Primark!

4. Flowerbomb perfume by Viktor & Rolf. Because this smells amazing and I'm too poor to buy it for myself!

5. Marc Jacobs watch. I do normally love Marc Jacobs thicker band watches but this simple and dainty strap with the rose gold detail is just gorgeous and I have to have it!

6. FITBIT watch. I sold my last fitness watch and I instantly regretted it. I definitely want to buy another one and the Fitbit watch looks really good! 

7. Game of Thrones Book Set. I love reading and since I was such a big fan of the show, I'd get the books! Even if I don't get this as a present I will definitely be buying this for myself anyway!

8. Disney Princess Vans. I think everyone has a pair of these by now and I don't care how childish and silly I will look when wearing them, I want them!

9. To Do list plaque. Just because it's so freaking adorable!



New Look Summer 60% Off Sale! ♥

28 July 2015


Although I'm sad that our English Summer is probably over and done with (I think it was around 3 days in total?), the only thing that helps me through is all the summer sales!

I love going up my local shopping centre and seeing "50% off" and "Everything half price!" in all the shops windows. It makes me very happy and my debit card cry. 

One of my favourite places to abuse when they have a sale on, is New Look. I always manage to nab some great offers and I have to admit this one haul is probably one of my best! Of course I thought I would do a haul post to show off all my goodies. Enjoy!

White Crochet Trim Vest| £8.99 £4.00
The first thing on my list is actually the last thing I added into my basket. It looked really simple and pretty on the model but when it came it's a bit loose and very short! It's not bad for £4 though, even if I do end up wearing it to bed!

Inspire Royal Blue Pussybow Tie Dress | £22.99 £7.00
I loved this as soon as I saw it and I knew I had to have it! It's a gorgeous royal blue colour and it comes just below my knee so I can easily wear it now in the Summer and in the upcoming Autumn months! So pleased I managed to back this one!

Inspire Grey Crochet Split Back Vest | £17.99 £8.00
Although this is probably the cutest little vest I've ever since, I don't think I'd pay full price of £18 for it! Slightly too much for what it's worth and I was so much happier to pay just £8!

Inspire Aztec Print Skater Skirt | £14.99 £8.00
I have been eyeing this skirt up from the day it was put up and I was desperate for it to be in the sale.

I'M IN LOVE!

L'Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser Shampoo & Conditioner Review!

27 July 2015


As I've many times in previous posts I love trying out new products whenever they come out and I really am a sucker for advertisements. Seeing all those beautiful models bouncing around the place, flicking their long luscious locks everywhere because of the latest new discovery in the world of shampoo makes me actually believe that I too can have this. Like I said, I'm a sucker!

The latest products I fell more was the L'Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser shampoo and conditioner set. I've tried a few of the L'Oreal Elvive products in the past and I never noticed a massive difference to my hair so I have to admit although there was a nice flashy advert on the TV, I wasn't really expecting much. Nevertheless on my next visit to Tesco, I did pop the shampoo and conditioner in my trolley to give it a try.

L'oreal shampoo and conditioner

One of the main selling points for the Luminiser range is the ingedient Glycogel which is advertised as a being part of "shine sealer technology". Over time the fibres in each hair strand can become dull and lifeless and the cuticle can become rough which will effectively disrupt the light reflection. L'Oreal claim to have found the perfect formular to remove these impurities and coat them with gloss enriched with the Glycogel to help hair go back to the perfectly polished and "show-stopping" shine! Sounds good eh?

I've been using these products for about 2-3 weeks now and I have noticed that my hair is looking a lot smoother and shinier. I'm not sure how much this is down to the shampoo or how much is down to the Hairworx tablets I've been taking. But either way, I'm loving my hair right now!

I would definitely recommend this set to anyone with dull/flat looking for a bit TLC then this is for you! I myself am in love a little in with them and I see myself picking up another bottle when I'm next out!

You can check them out here and here on the Boot's website for £3.99 for a 400ml bottle. 
Psst, they're currently on 3 for 2 offer!


Working Out In Style: Fabletics Review!

25 July 2015


I wouldn't exactly say I'm a big lover of the gym or that I'll happily spend every night in there like other people I know, but over the past couple of weeks I've really started to enjoy my time there and I've even found myself setting goals and targets and actually accomplishing them. Go me!

Obviously apart from getting fitter, another part that makes me like the gym is going out and buying new gym wear. Yes, I get excited about buying new trainers. My current kit was only from Primark and although it's served me well, I have started to noticed it's looking a bit shabby. On one of my recent visits to the gym, whilst watching the TV on the cross trainer I saw an advert for a company called Fabletics offering full gym outfits for only £22. Making a note of the name, I carried on with my work out and goggled them when I got home.

If you've not heard of Fabletics before like me, they're basically a sportswear company which offers membership subscription which gives 40% off all outfits. Not bad! One of my favourite actresses Kate Hudson is Co-Founder and probably the face of the company and as such you can look through the site and shop her "favourite outfits".

When you first sign you, they ask you to complete a short little questionnaire regarding your preferred workout and lifestyle to narrow down your outfits. After spending a good couple of hours looking through these I finally decided on my outfit and placed my order!

 The bottoms even match my trainers! :)

When you make your first order, you're automatically set up with a VIP membership and at first it took me a little while to get my head around it. As you explore Fabletics, sure enough you'll add a few items/outfits into your wish and on the 1st of every month, Fabletics will send you these selected outfits! If there's nothing that takes your fancy that month or you just can't afford it, you also have the option to skip and you won't be charged that month. This can be seen as really deceptive or helpful. Not sure which yet though.

The package itself didn't take long to come and as soon as I was back from work, I ripped it open the parcel to see the goodies inside. Both the T-shirt and the bottoms are exactly as described and are even more gorgeous in person. They're both definitely better quality than my Primark kit and they're so comfortable to wear.

Overall, I personally love my order and I'm super excited to try it out on the gym. I'm not so sure about keeping up with the VIP membership as it does feel a bit pushy but then you can't turn down the tempting 40%! Ahh, decisions!

I went with the Ashland Outfit but there are hundreds more combinations you can have so get on their website to check them out or to even create your own!
