My beauty wish list

Hi, so today I wanted to share with you my beauty wish list, there are so many products on this wish list that I've really had to narrow it down to my top favourite that I really want but at the moment but just cant quite justify buying them yet and because I have other products similar that I want use up first before.

So the first thing on my beauty wish list is the Clarisonic mia.
I have wanted one of these ever since I watched Dulcecandy87 night time skin routine, her skin always looks so flawless and I really want to try it out and see if it works for me.
Second on my list is the benefit stay flawless 15hr primer
This I really am desperate to try! and I love the packaging it looks so cute.
Also from benefit is the high beam luminescent complexion enhancer.
Next is the Sigma essentials kit - Mrs Bunny
I really do need to get myself some sigma brushes I see them used on YouTube tutorials all the time and I'm like ah I need to get me some of those!
these one I think are so pretty and are $120.00 which converted is £78.68 which I don't think is to bad for 12 brushes that makes them less than £10 each!

 Then last on my list is three products from l'occitane.
I have the Angelica hydration crème which I featured in my may favourites and because I love that so much I'm really keen to try out more products in the Angelica line.
Angelica cleansing gel

 Angelica eye roll on
 And the Angelica ultra matte fluid

So I'm hoping in future posts I will have some of these so I can review them and tell you if they really are worth me wanting them all so badly!

Thanks for reading

June BirchBox

Hi, I've not posted for a couple of weeks as I've been super busy and then when I have finally had a moment to myself I've either been suffering with migraines been ill or like this week Ethan has been ill! so really not good he has chicken pox at the moment and he is handling it very well to my surprise as I thought he would be picking and scratching like crazy...but I'm also hearing from people that if you don't get it bad the first time you could get it again! so if anybody knows if this is true please let me know as I'm praying he doesn't get it twice. Also some exciting news I got excepted into college to do a beauty therapy level 2 NVQ so I am over the moon about that as its always what I've wanted to do, so I cant wait for September so can get stuck in!
But that's enough rambling lets see what's in this box.

The theme of the box this month is festival chic, which is perfect for my summer my mood as me and my boyfriend are going to V festival so its getting me super excited for that!

I love that you get a mini magazine with the BirchBox that tells you about the products in your box and also other great products that tie in with theme of the box.
Inside the box were these really cute little post cards of different destinations around the world and also a little card with a description of the products in my box.
The little bag that the products come in inside the box, now this is one thing that I love about the BirchBox as I use these for little bits and bobs in my bag when I travel.
So the first thing in the box was a model co eye define eye pencil in the colour black 01.
It has a built in sharpener and on the pack it says
up to 12 hour wear
intense colour
smudge proof
and it also claims its suitable for sensitive eyes so I'm excited to try it out.
This is the full size one 1.2g 
Next is this colour club professional nail lacquer in the colour London calling this and three others come in a set called the wanderlust collection you can buy all for just £10.00. I really love this colour and cant wait to try it.

This is a full size bottle 7ml
Then next is beauty protector protect and detangle leave in conditioner.
and on the back it reads
instant detangler, thermal protector, UV protector, seals cuticles, smoothes hair, locks in colour, adds shine, weightless, non-greasy, conditions, for all hair types and it recommends to use daily.
I tried some on my hand and its a thick liquid and it smells amazing, so again I'm really looking forward to trying this and hoping that's it is as good as it smells.

Product number four is this noble isle willow song, lavenham walk bath & shower gel.
on the back of the bottle it says an unreservedly romantic fragrance, with floaty green florals and soothing extracts of willow and water lilly.

And then last we have a coola face classic sunscreen cucumber moisturizer its SPF 30 and it's organic.
Also it's green friendly, recycle friendly and cruelty friendly.
Also in my box I got a cute little box with another colour club professional nail lacquer in the colour mod in Manhattan and a little card with details on how to subscribe, so you could give this box to a friend with the nail varnish to recommend them to BirchBox.

I'm really happy with what I have in my box this month and look forward to trying all the products
Stay tuned for a review on them.

fancy dress costume.. 1920s flapper


It was one of my friends 18th birthday party on Friday and she had a pink themed fancy dress party which was also to raise money for breast cancer care. I originally wanted to dress up as a pink cupcake but the outfit had sold out in every fancy dress shop I tried so I decided to go as a flapper, I was so unsure about the outfit at first because it seemed so short and I hardly ever wear short dresses or skirts but one I was all ready and it felt OK and I wore a pair of skin colour tights so I felt more covered up.

My outfit

                                                              a close up of the dress

The dress, gloves and headband are from a local fancy dress shop but I'll pop a link at the bottom of a couple of fancy dress shops that stock it.
The bracelets are from Primark and the necklace is florence and fred from Tesco.

make up and hair

I choose to go for a smokey eye but keeping it just on my top lid a bright pink lip and a pink blush. I was going to try and recreate a 20s make up look but didn't want to look to dramatic as the dress was really the statement.

primer- Beautiful movements prime & create mixing medium.
concealer- Rimmel London match perfection 030 classic beige.
foundation- Rimmel London wake me up foundation 201 classic beige.
powder- Rimmel London match perfection 001 transparent.
contour- Rimmel London natural bronzer 022 sun bronze.
blusher- MAC coygirl

shadows- bhcosmetics 88 color palette matte eye shadows.
eyeliner- Rimmel London glam'eyes professional liquid liner 001 black glamour.
mascara-  jelly pong pong fairy lashes.
eyelashes- eylure katy perry sweetie pie.
