Beauty UK CC Cream Review

Hello My Lovelies,

I've been on the look out for a CC Cream for a while and when I was in Superdrug a few days ago this one ticked all the boxes.

Firstly it contains SPF 30, I love to wear an SPF all year and its a bonus that its a 30. Some other positives of this cream are.... You need very little of the product to cover your face, a 10 pence piece is enough. On the back of the tube it says "A lightweight, hydrating colour correcting cream" and this is exactly what it is- It doesn't cake, or clog your skin. I purchased the colour fawn which is the second colour of three and perfect for my skin in the summer months.

Once on the face it looks amazing my skin feels fresh, illuminated and glowing!

Now for the negatives! 
It's very runny so you have to be uber careful how much you squeeze out of the tube.
The coverage of spots and blemishes could be better.
Only 3 shades.
Only 25ml of product so not much for your £4.99

Would I buy it again? Maybe if the negatives in this review were corrected! For a drug store the CC cream by Beauty UK is a good starter product.

Have you tried this cream?

Till next time,

Purple Hair Don't Care!

Hello My Lovelies,

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take the plunge and dye my hair for the very first time! So I didn't go all the way and do my whole head, however I did dye the ends bright purple and I love it! I work in education and that means I'm currently on a six week holiday,whoop! I thought with all the time I would have to wash it out if it went wrong, that now was a great time to experiment. I decided to use the Schwarzkopf Live Colour or as the box says "color" in Purple Punk. Schwarzkopf have some other crazy colours I would love to try like the electric blue but this time I stuck with the purple.
I roped in my mum to give me a hand, and after watching some YouTube video's I found the best way to apply was to part my hair into sections, add the colour and then wrap it in foil. I left it on the ends of my hair for the suggested 20 minutes and then got my mum to wash my head over the bath. I have to say I am super happy with results and can't wait for the Christmas holidays and the chance to do it all over again!
Here's a picture of the finished hair do.....

Have you ever decided to go a bit mad and dye your hair a vibrant colour? Let me know in the comments section below.

Till next time,

My favourite author of all time...Diane Chamberlain!

Hello My Lovelies,

This post is all about my favourite author of all time Diane Chamberlain, this is a big statement to make I know but trust me she's amazing! I first started reading Diane's books a few years ago- I'm not even sure how or where I found her books but the minute I started reading I was hooked. 

Diane has been writing books for many years, with her first booked being sold in 1986....so she knows what she's doing when it comes to writing. 
The first book (I think) I read by Diane was The Bay At Midnight. I won't give too much away as I hope that you will go and buy it after reading my blog post, but the story consists of the character Julie Bauer and her family who holiday on the Jersey Shore and the effect of her sisters murder has on her- a lovely deep book that will have you wanting more.
Diane Chamberlain writes stories that keep you guessing from one page to the next, her characters are believable and likeable. On the back of the books I have purchased it says "Fans of Jodi Picoult, this is a must read" I would agree that both authors may write about similar topics but I personally find Diane's work a more personable read. I am so obsessed with Diane's work I have in the past ordered books that were only printed in the U.S so that I could read them, and in some cases months before they get released in the U.K. I have now read all of Diane's book, except for Necessary Lies that I am over half way through and I can definitely tell you hasn't disappointed. 
Diane's book are easy to get from Amazon and usually on offer too which is a bonus! You can easily download them onto your Kindle too which is some thing I am now tending to do.
You can check out Diane's website here http://dianechamberlain.com/ and also the link to Amazon for the book I discussed above http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bay-at-Midnight-MIRA/dp/0778303640/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1376504230&sr=1-1&keywords=the+bay+at+midnight

Are there any authors that you love and can't wait for their next book to be released? Leave me a comment as I always love to find new authors...
Till next time,

3rd Wish List of 2013!

Hello My Lovelies,

I got thinking earlier about Christmas....Yes I know it's still 4 months away but I firstly I love Christmas and the build up to it, but I also like to buy presents from around about now (August) for friends and family and getting my wish list together (you never know my mum might be reading and will get some ideas!) 
These are things I keep looking at and dreaming about!

First up a Long Champ Le Pliage Bag in brown or red or purple....

Next up a Tom Tom Sat Nav.

Next thing I would love is... a Cath Kidston kindle case.

Have you thought about Christmas yet? What are on your wish lists?

Till next time,


Kate Spade NY!

Hello My Lovelies!

I went to Bicester Village the other day (Prada was lush and now on my wish list!), I wasn't looking for anything- though I did think if I saw an ipad case and it wasn't outrageously priced then I would treat myself! I had a look in Ted Baker at the bow style cases but they were £25 and to be honest I wasn't all that impressed. I then went to Kate Spade and they had an amazing selection of folio style cases. It was so hard to choose from the stock that they had,I could of easily of bought a few but I decided to go with this one.....
It's so pretty, as you can see it's got blackbirds all over it and inside it's bright orange!
I paid £20 for this one which think is a decent price as I have looked at non 'brand' ones for roughly the same price.

I hope it will keep my beloved ipad safe for many years to come!
Have you got anything from Kate Spade or been to Bicester Village? I would love to hear what you bought!
Till next time,
