Scarlett Hearts Jewellery Haul


So today I have a small jewellery haul from the online shop, Scarlett Hearts.  I have purchased some items from them before, so when I saw on their Facebook page that they are having free international delivery until the 24th March, I decided to purchase a couple of items I have been looking at for a while.

First I picked up a couple of necklaces that were in the sale £1.80 each, which are a gold locket with a blue, and pink flower, I think these will look great in the summer with a sun dress!
I also picked up an infinity bracelet which was just £3.00 which I love as it is such a versatile piece!

Overall I love the jewellery I got, as well they where packaged lovely in little pink bags, and then tissue paper, and a note with your name on.
I think its also great you can pay via paypal, which is quick and secure!, they arrived super quick- just 2 days after I ordered them!

Is there anything on their site which you have your eye on?

Review: Asda Lip balm


Today I am going to be reviewing the Asda coloured lip balm in 2 dolly bird (only 2 shades available) , which is currently on offer in Asda for £2.
After the success of the Revlon Lip Butters, tinted lip balms seem to be everywhere!

So I thought I would give this one a try.....

First of all the packaging, not the most glamorous, but for the price it is fine,

So then I took off the lip, and wasn't expecting a ultra shimmery/glittery product!

To be fair it does have a smooth texture, however I doubt I will be leaving the house wearing this any time soon! 

Overall if shimmer/glitter is your thing have a try its only two pounds, if not stay well away!

Have you tried any other Asda Lip products?

Google reader.....


So as you may have heard, in July Google reader will no longer be available, therefore a lot of blogs as making the switch to Bloglovin, which is basically very similar to the Google reader  (the view when you open blogger that list's all of the new blog post from the blog's you follow)

So I have popped my Bloglovin button on the right at the top of the page, just click that- which will take you to my bloglovin page- click follow, and it will follow my blog the same as it does on Google reader!

any questions just leave them below and I will try my best to answer!

Nail of the day: Maybelline


 Today I used the Maybelline Express Finish polish in 865 Turquoise Green.
This is a nice metallic teal shade that goes on smoothly and dries quickly- but doesn't have the best lasting power- around 2 days without chips!
Have you tried any of the Maybelline polishes?

Nail of the day:Nails inc, Technic


last week on my nails I used nails inc Porchester Square which is a nude, cream formulation polish, which was 2 coats. Then over the top I used the Technic multi-coloured glitter in carnival, which was about 2 coats, with some nails needed some extra coats just to make it slightly more even.
This combo lasted really well on my nails- it went about 3 days without any chipping, and even when it did chip it wasn't very obvious! 

What is your favourite glitter combination?

Nail of the day: Barry M Gelly Hi Shine- Greenberry & Prickly Pear


So today I have a double nail of the day, in the form of the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine polishes which cost £3.99 from Boots and Superdrug
First is Prickly Pear- which is a lilac colour (which lasted very well on my nails as it lasted 3 days without any chips)
The next is Greenberry- which is your lovely bold mint green- I really like this colour as it isn't too washed out.

The one down side.....
These polishes are sold as Gelly High shine nail paints- and to be honest I don't see any extra shine than what you see on the normal Barry M polishes- Overall Pick these colours up, for the colour and not for the finish as it isn't high shine!

Have you tried any of the Barry M polishes what did you think?
