Okay..I am not proud of myself but I done it again...I bought another lipstick. But this time I genuinely do blame Rachel (here) as her blogpost (here) was far too persuasive. 
The Lancome Rouge in Love  range always gets fabulous reviews and I wanted to see what all the hype was about! I love my dark colours, purples, deep reds and anything that isn't pink and girly, basically! This colour popped out straight away, outdoing all the other colours in the 24 piece collection. 
Rouge in Love - Violette Coquette - 381B
The packaging itself was what drew me in first of all. It feels like a high end product if that makes sense. The base of the lipstick is supposed to represent a wedding band which is so cute considering the love theme and all. The only downside to the packaging I have is that I feel it could hold more lipstick in the tube than it actually does. Also, the colour isn't at the bottom of the packaging only a number is shown and I feel like if there was this would allow people to distinguish colours easier if you had more than one of these in your collection.

Lets talk about the product itself...It is fabulous. The colour is so so so gorgeous, a vibrant purple which wold suit any skin tone in my opinion. It does contain some shimmer but not enough that it looks like you have just applied a lipgloss. The formula is very moisturising, I feel, and it literally lasts ALL day, even when I had been eating and drinking. It can be worn so many different ways and if you don't want to have such an intense colour it would look just as good as a stain with some lipgloss over it!
I have put a picture below of me wearing this for a night out!

I wonder if I could pout anymore than what I am already?

As for the price, this lipstick comes in at £21.50, which for the colour, versatility, pigmentation and packaging is completely justifiable in my opinion. I can't get enough of it and will most definitely be repurchasing this in the near future. I highly recommend you get down to your local counter and purchase one of these! AMAZING!!

Have you tried any of the Lancome Rouge in Love lipsticks? What is your favourite lipstick of all time?

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Okay so it is coming up to Summer, everyone has booked holidays and now all that is on your mind is I want to look good in my bikini!!! I right? Well, that is most definitely on my mind.
I decided that I wanted a safe way to loose weight on top of my exercise and healthy eating that I have been trying to do. I have looked at so many different diet plans from the famous 'Juice Plus' to just drinking fluids. Realistically, none of these would work for me as I just love my food to much!

After months of searching, I found something that really did interest me. I discovered BOOTEA.
This claims to be the ultimate teatox for weightless. All you do is have a drink in the morning and at night whilst having healthy food throughout the day and exercising. What more could you want really???
I decided to purchase my tea at Holland and Barretts however they sell it on their website for the same price- £19.99.
I have started my detox. I will be sure to post some reviews on here when I have completed it.

Have you ever tried this BOOTEA?

Hey everyone, I feel as if I have been slacking lately but today I am going to take it upon myself to get back into the swing of things and post about something that I am sure you all will be interested in.I received my weekly issue of LOOK today..(which can I  just say is fabulous) and when I was reading through it during my lecture...(not recommended, guys!!) something caught my attention.

Benefit Makeup counters at Debenhams have teamed up together to raise money for the cancer charity 'Look Good Feel Better'.
Benefit have launched a campaign named 'Brow Arch March'... (basically the woman answer to 'Movember'), which is to raise funds for people who are possibly challenged by the visible side effects of cancer! What a great cause, right?

Want to get involved in this great event and get your eyebrows shaped and waxed for FREE (usually £11.50),while helping to raise money for charity? Well, the good news is over 50 Benefit stores across the UK are holding this event. You can't really turn this down. To find your local store just visit HERE and book your appointment!

I hope you all take up this great cause and I would love to hear if you do! Use the hashtag #Browarchmarch.
