September Glossy Box


There’s nothing I love more than receiving my Glossy Box without even realising it’s been a month.. A blessing for the surprise and a curse because I’ve lost another month!

20130913-015300.jpg

First of all, the box is AMAZING! It’s a ginormous Union Jack flag and I can’t wait to display it proudly in my room! The theme for this month was inspired by London Fashion Week and all the products are from brands in the UK. This month came with a unique magazine which was a nice little bit of literature to read on a small journey!

** The products inside are listed in an informative little booklet

Let’s take a look at what was in the box..

The first eye-tem (pardon the pun) that jumped out at me were these self-adhesive eyelashes! I’m a bit sceptical of these but I’m saving to try them on a special occasion because they look beautiful and natural! I don’t know how well they’ll stick, but I’m ready for the challenge!

**Eyelure Pre-Glued lashes in 109

The next thing I awed over was this Onyx eyeliner by BeABombShell! It’s a jumbo eyeliner felt tip that makes a super neat line! After I stopped buying L’oreal Carbon Gloss, I never used eyeliner until I bought my first felt tip applicator one! This is highly pigmented and makes a super clean line.. PERFECT!

** Be A Bombshell Onyx Eyeliner

When I saw this perfume, I loved that I could try it! I saw a favourite YouTuber of mine Shaaanxo mention that she bought this recently and loved it! So when I received it, I knew is like it! It’s a really strange scent. It’s musky, floral, fruity and evening-y! I really like the bottle, too which they’ve designed to look good from whatever angle you look at it from! I love it when I get perfume samples in miniature versions of their full size bottles.. Looks super cute on my vanity!

** Elizabeth Arden Untold perfume

I’m not usually too into hair care because I don’t show my hair.. Durr? But I don’t mind a serum every now and again because I don’t always like using conditioner on my hair. I tried this straight away because my hair had just dried and I quite like it. The serum is semi-runny and not too thick and absorbs really well. I applied it to the ends of my dry hair and it gave it a bit of shine and lessened any frizz that I had.. Nothing miraculous and I’m not too keen on the smell but I like the handy size and the bottle comes in a pump.. Bonus!

** Toni & Guy Classic Shine Gloss Serum

When I saw the next thing, I was quite surprised by the name.. I had heard of this old wives tale for a while no and the idea is exactly what the product name suggests! I like the consistency which is uber thick and it really moisturises well.. However, half of the sample was air.. WHICH SUCKS! But it’s handy because you can carry it in your bag to use on your cuticles, elbows and wherever you get dry!

August Glossy Box


20130815-185903.jpg

This months Glossy Box has arrived and the theme is High Flyers! All products are under 100ml so perfect for flying and they’re all things to give yourself a super quick pep when you’re away and don’t have time for age long beauty treatments!

Océane Make up Remover Pen

This is basically what every woman thinks about wanting but it hasn’t been invented until NOW! This is a makeup remover pen which basically has liquid inside the pen and you can use the nib to remove makeup precisely! It comes with 3 extra nibs and it really helped remove those mistakes that happen with eyeshadows, liners and lipsticks!

20130815-190455.jpg

Tresemme 60 second treatment shot
I haven’t yet tried this because its not something which appealed to me straight away if I’m honest! I don’t usually use stuff like this is in my hair, simply because I don’t feel I need it! However, this is supposed to make your hair feel silky smooth after using and because it’s 60 second, it’s quick!

20130815-190506.jpg

Emite Makeup Eye lash Curler
I was so surprised to see an eyelash curler in my Glossy Box this month! It even comes with three changeable rubber pads! It feels really sturdy because the mechanism is stiff and the actual curler area is super long so will grab every eye lash and it gives lashes a really right curl!

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 eyeliner & shadow
When I saw this, I was so happy! Every Jelly Pong Pong item I receive is always really nice! I love this one too! I like the fact that you can use this as an eye shadow and eye liner! This really does create a smooth and even line and when used as an eye shadow, it’s blend able. However, it’s not that easy to smudge and I found that it creased after some time! I think with a good primer and a shadow on the top, it’ll last!

20130815-190605.jpg

Urban Veda Purifying Day Cream
I’ve saved the best until last! I absolutely love this day cream! It has a matte finish, feels cold after applying and is so lightweight! Also, it’s so inexpensive that I’m definitely going to purchase it!

I really liked this month’s Glossy Box! There were 4 full sized products in here and more importantly a product which I am so in love with that I’ve recommended it to two other people already and they’ll be purchasing it too! All the products were really nice to use and fit in the ‘High Flyers’ theme really well!

GlossyBox is £10 a month (£2.95 p&p)

July Glossy Box


20130713-220332.jpg

I received my July Glossy Box this month and loved it so much, I thought I’d share what I received, with you!

20130713-220412.jpg

So this months, theme was Summer Splash and my oh my, were the products ready for summer!

The first product is this gorgeous nail varnish from Ciate (the first Ciate product for me) and its in this shade called The Glossip. It’s a lovely coral orange colour perfect for these summer days! It looks lovely with a nice light golden tan! The colour looks fabulous with one thick coat and I love the packaging too!

20130713-220502.jpg

The next product is this Alterna Bamboo Style Boho Waves tousled texture mist!! What a mouthful! I tried this as soon as I got it because it says to apply to damp hair and I had just washed mine! It’s supposed to give you nice beach waves that look effortless. When I applied it, the spray isn’t really a misty haze, more of a semi-squirt which wasn’t that appealing! Then once it had gone in my hair, it felt so strange! Almost like my hair didn’t want to dry because the product was on it. It became frizzy and in areas where I had sprayed a little too close, the spray had collected to form a kind of oily/dampish area which was unusual! I don’t know if it didn’t work on my hair but my barnet has never rejected any product before so I’d be surprised! My hair never really curled at all and although in the areas where I sprayed it too close, my hair had texture, I was unimpressed by this product.

20130713-220517.jpg

I then gravitated towards this product by Anatomicals called Spray Misty for me Facial Spritz! They always have the most quirky names and descriptions on the back! This is supposed to be a facial spray which helps to cool your face leaving you refreshed and glowing! I tried this myself.. Didn’t really notice a difference and then tried it on my mum! My mum was in the kitchen cooking at the time so was very hot and my mum sweats a lot too (cause she drinks a horse full of water everyday). And she said after applying the mist, she never sweat at all! She looked radiant and glowing a few minutes after the spray set in and she loves the smell of lavender! My mum gives it a 6/10!

20130713-220525.jpg

This product is a must for everybody in summer in my eyes.. SPF! Face COOLA classic sunscreen! It’s the cucumber scent and is very refreshing on the skin! Unlike most sunscreens, this never felt sticky at all and really just glided on and then disappeared into my skin. The product wasn’t too thick and didn’t feel sticky at all so I really like this!

20130713-220549.jpg

I’ve truly saved the best until last! These are the Sleek Pout Paints and there are two that come in the Glossy Box! A beautiful bright pink called Pinkini (go on my Instagram to see the Instavideo I did on this) and a gorgeous orange in the shade Lava. I tried this straight away and I loved the way they liked on my lips! Because they’re stains, they don’t budge so I’m tempted to use them on my cheeks too! They’re supposed to mix-able with other colours so some people received silver or blue but you can create your own shades! I’m glad I got the two shades I did though, because I don’t want to live without them now! I previously bought one if these in the shade Minx and was a little disappointed by the colour! It’s UBER pigmented but because they’re oil based, they separate when you don’t use then for a little while.. All the more reason to rock a bright lip everyday!

October Glossy Box


20121019-171335.jpg

This months GlossyBox was not as good as I hoped it would be! However, a few key pieces made it worth my while :)

20121019-171717.jpg

I already received a Dermologica Fresh Start Kit in a previous GlossyBox and never used it because I didn’t really need such an abrasive treatment for my skin. However, in the past Dermalogica products have improved my skin so I won’t mind trying it in the future. A bit disappointed that this is the second time I’ve received this in a GlossyBox.. Perhaps they were trying to recycle some old products?? Would like to try a NEW product every month though as I thought that was their mission statement.

20121019-171349.jpg

The next product I received was Anti Blemish Skinetica which is a company I have never heard of! It’s a very watery liquid that’s suppose clear and reduce spots! I’m excited to try this and have a lot of people to recommend this to, should it work!

20121019-171746.jpg

The next item is a body scrub by a company I’ve heard so much about called THIS WORKS! Everybody has been going crazy about their skin are products! This is a very grainy and citrus smelling shower scrub which I think would be perfect for scrubbing the area with a lot of dead skin such as heels, elbows and knees!

20121019-172903.jpg

The very last item is probably the best! It’s a lipstick by Yves Rocher is this gorgeous creamy pink odour! It’s quite reminiscent of MAC impassioned but has a slightly darker tone! I think it looks great on the lips, is a great formula and is the perfect colour for a pop of colour in Autumn! This colour is the shade 101 Framboise

20121019-172909.jpg

All in all a fairly average GlossyBox this month! I love the fact they’re supporting Breast Cancer month as well! It’s a cause very close to me and its nice to know some of the money you’re spending, is going to a good charity!

Ring thing!


If there is one thing in the world I can’t live without.. it’s a bit of bling! I love jewellery and everything that comes with it! The drama, elegance, and femininity.. It fabulous!

Hints and tips*

  • If you have short and rounded fingers whereby you find your wear a Large size ring however the tips of your fingers go skinnier and you have short nails, avoid going for large and cocktail style rings. Instead, opt for smaller and more delicate rings! Don’t worry thought.. Add a bit of drama by going for bold colours and intricate designs. You know those rings that come in stacks of 3s, 4s, 5s etc.. Go for them and wear them individually! Visit ASOS and they have a large variety with gorgeous designs
  • If you have long and skinny fingers and you find that most rings are big for you, go for large and bold rings which will widen out your hands a bit and make them look fuller. You’re actually at an advantage though cause most ring types will look fantastic on you. If you do wish to go for something elegant and small, try to paint your nails a bold colour and this will enhance the simple design of your jewellery.
  • If you have Medium sized fingers but quite a lot of skin on your fingers, don’t go for small designs at all as often, rings can look too tight on your fingers and I’ve seen so many people with red and painful looking hands because their rings don’t fit them. Go for mid sized rings with a pattern, design, large stone etc as these will compliment your lovely fingers more.
  • MAKE SURE YOUR NAILS ARE CLEAN! I always ensure my hands are clean and have a nail file attached to my keys, in my make up bag, in my car and my bedroom, so there is no excuse for my hands to have anything dirty on them.
  • If you find you have stained fingers from nail varnish colours such as a red and pink, dip your fingers in a centimetre of nail varnish remover for 20 seconds. If you have painful skin around your fingers, cuts or grazes or your finger nails are brittle.. Avoid this completely as it’s not worth the pain. Just scrub them VERY gently with a dish scourer when you wash the dishes next :)

Hands are a gorgeous part of a woman! No matter how insecure you feel about your face, body or weight, your hands are what you use every day in your life with interaction whilst talking, touching, interacting.. EVERYTHING! All hands are gorgeous and you can make your hands look nice without having to spend thousands of pounds and dollars on them.. Don’t just make them look good for yourself but see the reaction of your other half. Every time I have a nice nail varnish colour on my nails, Mr. A always compliments them and can’t resist giving my hands a feel. Wearing rings and jewellery is just another way to enhance them.. HAPPY DAYS!

THE RULE IS SIMPLE.. Just treat them clean and keep them keen!
