July Miss Glossy Box!


20130722-014425.jpg

So I recently received the Miss Glossy Box for the summer months! For those of you who don’t know, Miss Glossy Box is the second subscription box service that Glossy Box have made which is targeted to a younger audience consisting of drug store and more affordable brands!

VO5 Plump It Up Back Comb Spray £3.69
This is a spray designed for those of us who love a good back comb but hate the crispy and stiff feeling that hairspray gives! It smells good and lasts a long time and really does leave a more natural movement to your hair even when you have it back combed!

Kiss Nail Wraps in Jewelled Stripes £5.99
I like a good nail wrap every now and again! Although I find some of the patterns very garish (which some would claim this one is too), I think this design is perfect for the target audience of the box! Nail wraps are quick to put on, require no glue and last really long too!

Miss Patisserie Bath Fizzy in Starlight £2
When I first got the box, I could smell something incredible coming from the bag! I loved the idea of the bath fizzes in the box because its something I’ve never received in the original Glossy Box! They smell divine and have fun stars in them which float around in your bath!

GlossyBox false lashes
These eyelashes are not able to be bought separately however, they are of fairly good quality! Perhaps a bit too full on for the looks that I like to go for, but I like the idea of them! They come with glue too!

Beyonce Midnight Heat £29.50
This perfume is a really pungent scent! I wouldn’t say it’s very evening at all! Rather, a musky smell which is bordering on smelling like ‘Grandma trying to be hip’. It’s a shame because I love the original Beyonce Heat which I have a bottle of!

All in all, I feel as though this months Miss Glossy Box wasn’t really marketed that well! I think the perfume, lashes and back comb spray were better suited to the original Glossy box, however, there were a lot of full sized products in the box and for the price of the subscription, we all got our money’s worth! I’m just not sure if some of the products were suited well for myself!

A surprise weekend!


What a weekend I’ve had! Plenty of surprises, guests and events have been going on! No need to worry, guys.. LET ME FILL YOU IN!

The weekend begun on Friday after work (however, the planning for these events have been going on for around a month for me)! So after work, off I went to collect my cousin Miss A. the Olympian from her house! It took quite some time because of traffic etc and we arrived home at around midnight!

Now.. The Bubble household is fully aware, on the days that Miss A. comes round, it’s going to be a late night so of course we went to bed around 5am!!! I woke up the next morning at around 10am and got dressed! I left the house as soon as Miss A. got in the shower as, I knew she would ask plenty of questions!

I grabbed my dad and we ran out to our local grocery store where I had already got a list of all the shopping I needed! I knew exactly what I was going to cook and the reason I left the house so early, was because I needed to let the meat marinate whist I was out with the girls!

After I arrived home, the questions began from my cousin but I carried on as normal and began to put all my shopping away whilst my lovely dad made us all breakfast! After we had finished. It was almost time to head on out and almost time for the surprises to begin!
20121001-172625.jpg

On the way to the shopping mall, I had put little goody bags under mum and Miss A’s. seat! They were full of all things girly like jewellery and shoes and bags that I knew they would all love! Luckily they were so excited and I could tell they were very happy with their presents!
20121001-172637.jpg

I knew work would be packed and the first surprise was Miss A. getting her iPhone 5! So I got all all the staff at work to know I was coming and we had planned a big prank on her.. But, of course.. My luck meant that we got stuff in traffic and the prank would have taken some time and so I let them know that we’d have to leave it! It’s a good prank though, so I shall use it to play on someone else for another time!

We got to work and she got her phone! A very good deal on it too and off we went to surprise number 2.. A MANI/ PEDI! Now my cousin wanted a back massage instead of a pedicure so I complied and made sure she got what she wanted! I had told the staff in the salon to expect 3 people and I told them to book us into a basic manicure and pedicure but this could be changed later! The reason being because I’m not sure what my mum would want and what my cousin would have liked! It was so nice and my mum got her first ever spa-like treatment!

After this, we had a little stroll around the shopping centre and I had planned for a fellow florist to hand over some BEAUTIFUL flowers to my mum and cousin! They were gorgeous and even better than I had planned them to be! Mum as Miss A. Were very surprised and I think they liked them! It was quite funny because Mum saw the stall for the flowers and said we should get some flowers for decoration but little did she know, I had already or her some!

We then went into a jewellery store and chose some really nice pieces of jewellery!

After this, we were exhausted, so headed on home where everyone was STARVING! We hadn’t eaten since the morning and so I started to make dinner! I had planned a 3 course meal! (Want to see the menu..? I can do a blog post on it) The dessert… decided everyone could make their own ice cream cones and had to decorate them accordingly! The best people would win prizes!
20121001-172715.jpg

So of course, after the ice cream challenge, I thought everybody had very creative designs and they all won!
• My brother got a Manchester United football shirt with his name on the back
• Mum got an electric toothbrush thing she had wanted for a while
• Dad got a jacket cause he is OBSESSED with them!
• And wonderful Miss A.. A trip to Paris!!!

They were all so happy with their gifts and I could tell that they were shocked about my planning! So to all my French readers: BONJOUR!!!! I’ll see ya soon!

I had no recollection of what happened after this point because I fell asleep straight after and I was EXHAUSTED!!

The next day arrived and Miss A. Got ready to go home however, we had a busy evening planned and so after she left, I got in the shower and began getting ready for a fun-filled evening In central London!

20121001-172805.jpg

We had planned a dinner at a South African style restaurant in London as my cousin had recently got a new job! It was brilliant fun and the food was fantastic! They had amazing South African style drinks which tasted so nice!

20121001-172813.jpg

We had then planned a comedy show for my favourite comedian Michael McIntyre at the O2 arena (millennium dome) and we had such a laugh! The atmosphere, the place and the journey were all so FANTASTIC!

This was then topped off with a coffee stop which really refreshed us and off we went home! By this time it was quite late and so we all parted ways and off we went home!

Just wanted to share the weekend with you guys as I had so much fun and I know I’ve been MIA lately, but I’m back now with plenty of posts to keep you guys busy!

August favourites


THIS MONTH! I’ve been loving quite a lot of different things! I’ll show you the range.. From make up to jewellery to food to clothes! LET’S BEGIN!

So this bracelet we bought from Primark (me and mum) I think it looks great on! I even wore it kind of layered up with my jumper and thought it looked FAB!
Primark £4

These shoes are from River Island! They have a medium platform and a lovely quilted pattern! Not the easiest to walk in though because they’re straight and won’t allow your foot to bend! I love the gold detailing and the front of the shoe is a very flattering shape and they look a bit different to your usual ballet flats.

River Island £25

This perfume was from the Body Shop! It’s in the scent Moroccan Rose and I think it smells divine! Definitely a rosy musk Though so avoid if that not your thing! It’s perfect for the transition from Summer to Autumn/fall. Unfortunately it was limited edition but they still sell the body butter! YUM!

This t shirt from Dorothy Perkins is what I’ve lived in! As soon as it been washed.. I’ve worn it again! It’s so comfortable, has a brilliant Aztec pattern and I got it from the sale section of Dorothy Perkins for £9 from £18! Whenever you go to Dorothy Perkins or when shopping online, their online section is amazing! So don’t miss it!

Dorothy Perkins £9

The Urban Decay Naked 2 palette was a new purchase for me! YES! I’m a late bloomer but I’ve just discovered it and I’m in love! The colours are perfect for day and night! I actually got mine on eBay for £20 as a seller had them on quite cheap however it’s usually £32 so quite pricey! It’s so amazing I’ve got the Naked palette from eBay as well for the same price! The colours in the Naked palette are slightly more neutral and brown compared to the second so definitely up my street!

20120902-195528.jpg
Naked Palette 2 £36

The stay matte powder from Rimmel London is fantastic! I’ve been getting quite oily skin recently so though I’d keep it in my bag and since doing so, can’t live without it! I recently bought the Dior powder too but am waiting until the Rimmel one finishes until I use the Dior! It’s lightweight, easy to use and comes in translucent! Woo!

Rimmel London stay matte powder (translucent 001) £3.99

Some people are frightened to death of it but curling your eye lashe is one of the most fundamental parts of doing your make up! It opens the eyes, makes them look more feminine and is a great step before applying mascara to get maximum results! I’ve got quite Kim lashes but their limo and need curl so I curl my lashes effort and after applying mascara (once its dry) and this helps to ensure my lashes are ready for the beautiful day ahead! I’ve had my Tweezerman ones since I was 11 (which is 9 years) and they’ve never caused me any problems! I’ve not had to change the rubber once in that whole time!

20120902-195009.jpg
Tweezerman eye lash curlers £15

I’ve been loving Tea recently! I’ve needed to relax and there’s nothing better than a cup of tea to relax! Proper British style! However, to give it a bit of twist, try adding 5/6 cardamom seeds in your tea for a different flavour! Like my mug?

I LOVE CHOCOLATE! Enough said!
