Beauty Haul!


The title says it all! There’s a lot. So lets get cracking!

Sally Hanson Miracle Nail Thickener

So this I got, because my nails are EXTREMELY BRITTLE! I’m talking about.. Shampooing my hair and my nail will break off mid-nail! It’s awful! I couldn’t deal with the pain any more and I went to Superdrug in a huff and with my finger in a band aid to hide the shame! Lol! When I saw this I thought it looked brilliant! I’ve used Sally Hanson nail polish before for ridge filling before a good manicure! This says to test it for a month and I did so.. The results weren’t AMAZING and if I’m honest very hard to tell! However, I do feel as though my nails are slightly stronger. They still flake a bit as shown in the image however, generally, they haven’t broken in around a week or two so I’ll keep using it! For the price I paid for it, I’ll be patient!

Rimmel London I HEART lasting finish nail varnish in double decker red

The colour of this polish is FANTASTIC! I’ve been into reds a lot this month and I’m LOVING this colour! It’s a complete dupe of a colour I had manicured on me around a month ago! The colour was OPI- thrill of brazil and I think this is exactly the same! The finish is really glossy and it looks beautiful for any time of the year! However, although the polish is shiny, it doesn’t last very long at all! The polish chips in no time, even with a base and top coat to protect it :( for the price though, it’s brilliant!

Ruby Hammer Recommends Beauty On The Go

Some of you may have seen my male up collection where I have TONNES of Ruby hammer recommends products! Ruby Hammer is a make up artist who made her own brand and I LOVE her products! The pigmentation and price are perfect! This palette is definitely perfect for on the go and is such a good size that I think I might take it to France on the weekend! There’s a wide range of eye shadow colours and some lovely coloured lip glosses with a handy mirror too! I would however, like some matte colours because they were all shimmery and I would probably like Ruby Hammer to be available more easily! I don’t see it in every Debenhams store, which isn’t very handy! Plus, I got it at an AMAZING price!

Ruby Hammer Recommends the Professional Beauty Case

This is AMAZING! I not only love the packaging and think the make up train is lovely but the make up inside is gorgeous! I didn’t expect to receive what I did when I ordered online! The train was on sale on the Debenhams site so thought I’d pick it up because I liked the storage solution and obviously I like the make up! The box surprised me completely! The box consists eye shadows, lipstics, lip glosses, nail varnishes, blushes, palettes and a whole manicure and pedicure kit! Everything a girl needs in the morning! The products are lovely and the presentation is too! Lovely!

YSL pure rouge shine in Tuxedo Pink 31

This lipstick was my splurge of the month and I’m not disappointed! It’s the perfect colour to spruce up any outfit and I think it would flatter you, no matter what your skin tone! The lipstick is also long lasting and the colour can be built up or sheer! But the shine of the lipstick is perfect! A good dupe is Mac Impassioned (not as much of a shine)

YSL pure rouge shine in Tuxedo Pink 31 £23.50

Sleek Shangri- La palettes in Supreme and Respect

These eye shadow palettes are some of my about items from Sleek Make Up! I think the pigmentation of the eye shadows and the colours are fantastic! I love the way they created two! Choose the respect palette is more warmer tones whilst the supreme palette is blue toned! There are a variety of colours to chit any look you want to go for! I got both because I couldn’t choose! I might be using some of the colours as blushes if I’m not brave enough to wear them on my eyes.. Multi-tasking.. WOOPEEE!!

Clothing haul!


I’ve been going shopping CRAZY recently and have picked up a few things that I feel I’ll be able to keep forever with me even when I move to Birmingham!

I went to TK Maxx and found nothing that I liked and again with Dorothy Perkins, felt the same way! The clothes hall section will start from River Island as I found some lovely pieces there today!! I don’t usually shop in the sale rails but today I think I found some lovely bits!!!

Lets begin!

The first thing I noticed was this AMAZING dress! I love the beading on it an the cut is FANTASTIC! I love intricate beading and the style of this dress is beautiful! The colours are y favourite and I loved it as soon as I saw it!

20121005-184351.jpg
I love the dangling detail and the cut at the bottom of the dress!

20121005-184356.jpg
This dress was £80 originally but £30 in the clearance sale in a size 8

The next top is a crop top that caught my eye! To be honest, I actually got this TK wore to bed because I think it’s a lovely material and I like it for the hotter nights! I get BOILING hot at night!

20121005-184439.jpg
I love the studded detailing on the shoulders too!

20121005-184446.jpg
This crop top was £7 in the sale and I think it was originally around £15 in a size 6

The next piece is a speckled too in one of my favourite colours at the moment! I think it looks great with any get up and to be honest, ill be tucking it into a maxi skirt for a pop of colour!

20121005-184519.jpg
I love the speckled detailing and deep wine colour!

20121005-184528.jpg
I got this top for £5 and think it was originally around £15 in a size 6

The next thing is a blazer style jumper which wasn’t in the sale section but I love it! The jumper is a knit material but has 3/4 sleeves in a wet look! The material is super comfy and although not warm, adds a touch of something different to the outfit!

20121005-184535.jpg
The sleeves are a wet look but not a stiff leather.. PERFECT!

20121005-184541.jpg
The blazer was £35 in a size 10

The next buy is my best pick of the bunch! I’ve been looking for a pair of winter boots for a while and when I saw these I HAD to grab them! They were lying in the shelf all by themselves so I picked them up! They are a lovely mid heel boot in a very simple leather! They are SUPER COMFY!

20121005-184547.jpg
I love the shape of them at the front and the ankle length of the boots makes them very functional!

20121005-184556.jpg
These boots were £7.50!!!!!!!!!! Reduced from £35 and they’re in a size 5.

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!
20121001-172605.jpg

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!

20121001-174544.jpg

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!
20121001-172659.jpg
20121001-172707.jpg

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!!!

20121001-172820.jpg

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!!
20121001-172727.jpg

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!

20121001-172835.jpg

20121001-172933.jpg

20121001-172948.jpg

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!
20121001-172651.jpg

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!

Recently, I had a little accident and was feeling a little bit sorry for myself! (nothing serious.. I think) I decided the best cure was.. SHOPPING!

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

20120902-194458.jpg

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.

20120902-194531.jpg

20120902-194537.jpg
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!

20120902-194759.jpg
The Body Shop Moroccan Rose perfume (50ml)

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!

20120902-194806.jpg
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!

20120902-194825.jpg
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?

20120902-195131.jpg

I LOVE CHOCOLATE! Enough said!
