Life | My New Car ft MyCarCheck!

31 January 2016

Hello!

As many of you already know, 2016 didn't start out that great for me and there was quite a few bumps in the road. The main bump (more like a hill!) was that my beloved Golf decided to set itself on fire just 5 days into the new year. Thanks a lot friend!

After everything was settled with the insurance, the prospect of getting a new car did make me slightly happy again. I've had my eye on a few cars since the "incident" and after a bit of discussion, my heart was set on the Citroen DS3.

I am a bit of a car freak and that's mainly due to my dad and my aunt so looking for a new car always excites me. But after my past history with buying cars that break down on me, I'm always a little scared with what car I'm getting. Some cars can look great in the showroom or even on a test drive, but I guarantee that after a few weeks, things will start to go wrong on it. It's just my luck.

To help make sure that never happens to people again, MyCarCheck have come up with the quick and easy way to check your car's history without making the same mistakes I did. From £1.99 to £19.95, there's different packages with a variety of different checks made on your car.

As you can see from the check below, my new car is pretty good which does give me a bit of comfort that there might be any hidden problems with my car. Always a plus!

As well as letting you know and problems it's had, it also gives you a handy guide of what you should reasonably be paying to buy this car, or what to value it at if you're looking to get rid. This in itself is quite handy!

Once Upon A Lime: Soap & Glory Bath Set ♥

29 January 2016

Hello!

I think everyone over the years has tried SOMETHING from Soap & Glory. I must admit that I was a bit late to the S&G party myself but ever since being converted, I always try and keep a healthy stock of lotions and potions for when I most need pampering.

Obviously my mother knows me quite well and for Christmas, she brought me the Once Upon A Lime gift set and a small collection of the Sugar Lime products! Yummy!

Now last year, I had The Next Big Thing set and I was really impressed because there were different products from different ranges in S&G and it was a good chance to try them all out. This year though my mom brought me the Once Upon A Lime set which I said above, includes a handful of the Sugar Crush products. In last years box, Sugar Crush body scrub was probably my favourite product so I was happy to see that it inside this set as well.

The whole of the Sugar Crush range smell absolutely gorgeous and it's by far my favourite of all the fruit scents from Soap & Glory (the orange one made me ill!). Let's just say I'm very happy with this set and it makes me very excited to get in the shower!

Maybelline Falsies Push Up Mascara Review!

27 January 2016

Hello!

It's feels like it's been ages since I had a good beauty shopping haul. All I've been trying to do for the past couple of weeks is use up all of my older make-up products to create some room for all the new products that I keep seeing advertised! 

The one product I was desperate to try, even though I still have a handful of other mascaras to use up, was the Maybelline Falsies Push Up Mascara. From all the advertisements and reviews going around I knew I had to get my hands on one pretty quick.

When I actually got into Boots, I was a little unsure of whether to buy this or a Seventeen lengthening mascara but the bright packaging of the Maybelline won me over. A girl can’t say no to pink!

Another reason I was going to choose a different mascara was that Falsies Push Up is a comb brush and me and comb brushes do not get on. Most of the ones I’ve tried in the past just clump my lashes together and end up leaving me looking vile. I did however put past experiences aside and brought it anyway!

The next day I was eager to try it out and I have to admit that I was thoroughly impressed! Instead of my lashes being clumped together, they were volumised and seemed to have just doubled in size. Amazing.

Not only did the formula make my lashes look amazing but it actually lasted the whole day without leaving me with panda eyes. What more could I ask for?

Overall I’m really impressed with this mascara and it has now become my number one must have product. You can check it out for yourselves for £5.99 at Boots!

Maria Nila Luminous Colour Hair Masque Review ♥

25 January 2016

Hello!


It's always nice to pamper yourself every once in a while. My favourite thing to do is run myself a nice hot bubble bath, light a few candles (maybe pour a nice cold glass of wine) and relax with a moisturising hair or face mask. Lush!

Well a few months back now, Glossybox sent everybody the Maria Nila Luminous Colour Masque in their September box and although I did initially forget about it (obviously since it's now January!) I did remember it and then ran myself an extra special bath just so I had the excuse to test it out.

Since lobbing my hair I haven't dyed my hair so I wouldn't say that my hair is in desperate need of a specialised colour treatment but I still wouldn't say no to a good hair masque! 

The scent was absolutely gorgeous and after just 10 minutes of being on my hair, I could easily get my comb through my hair without any complaint or vigorous tugging. Like I said above, I haven't dyed my hair for a while so I couldn't really test out whether that aspect of it worked out or not, but I was impressed with how soft it made my hair.

Although I really enjoyed using the masque, I wouldn't say it's any better than a cheaper treatment from Aussie or Pantene that I've tried in the past. It's a slightly more expensive treatment and you can check it out here if you weren't fortunate enough to get in your Glossybox!

Happy New Year: Glossybox January 2016

23 January 2016

Hello!

With the craziness of Christmas and starting my new job, it feels like the days and weeks have just flown by! So much so that it was once again a shock when my Glossybox appeared through my door. I really need to start setting reminders or something!

I was however very excited to see what was inside as I'd not seen any sneak peaks or teasers for what was inside so all products would be a surprise for me!

Unani Dermo Defense Face Mask | £11.36
I love a good face mask and I can't wait to try this out for myself! The Winter is not doing my skin any favours at the moment and it definitely needs a bit of TLC!

Teeez Cosmetics Oasis Gem Lipstick | £11.93
The packaging for this lipstick is just gorgeous! So pretty and colourful. Unfortunately, my lipstick was broken as soon as I opened it but I still hope to be able to get some use out of it! 

Angele Paris Red Nail Lacquer | £6.32
A brand I've never heard of before and a product I'm very excited to try! It's a gorgeous red shade which will look perfect for the Winter months!

Glossybox Eye shadow in Glossy Mauve | £7.10
Another Glossybox special product! The last one came in the shape of a highlighter which I fell in love with so I have high hopes for this eye shadow as well! Plus it's in a gorgeous satin mauve shade. How can you resist?

Madara Cellular Repair Serum | £38
I think it's becoming a very recurring theme in Glossybox now to have an extremely expensive product in each box. I mean I'm never going to pay nearly £40 for a serum, however good it is! I will however happily test it out and maybe write a review on it!

Very excited for the February box as it includes a MUA lip glaze that we all get to pick our favourite shade. Yay!

Tanya Burr Daydream Lip Gloss Review!

22 January 2016

Hello!

Now I have to admit that me and lip gloss haven't always had the best of relationships. Mainly because there's been too many incidents of my hair being stuck to my lips in windy weather. Not a good look!

Nevertheless when I heard that Tanya Burr was releasing her own make-up range, just lip glosses and nail polishes to start, I thought I would give some blogger love and test out one of her lip glosses!

Ignore my bout of bad skin. Always happens when I want to take blog pictures! Typical!

I ended up going with one of her very neutral shades in Daydream which I would describe as a very shimmery nude colour. The applicator is quite generous and not much of the product is needed for a full glossy look to be achieved. Another little plus to this product is it was a nice fruity scent when applied, and doesn't leave a horrible chemical like some other slightly cheaper products!

Although I do hate lip glosses, I have to admit it was kind of nice for a change. Not sure if I would start ditching my lipsticks and lip balms but I did enjoy swapping it up! You can check out Daydream on the Superdrug website and see the rest of her collection as well!
