MAC Dazzleglass - 'Funtabulous' and Lipstick in 'Up the Amp' Review

I chose MAC's Dazzleglass in Funtabulous whilst I was at the 'Birmingham Bloggers Meet Up' last month. To justify purchasing a new lipgloss when I already have hundreds I went for something completely different to anything else that I have - a crazy purple full of glitter :) To be fair, as it's me I tend to go towards pinks and purples more than neutral colours.  £17 As with all of the Dazzleglasses, It is a very sticky formula which is okay until your outside in the wind and your hair starts sticking to your lips! Staying power could be better but I do love the colour!  Then, last weekend, me and Emma went shopping in town and went to both the MAC store and Selfridges. The staff in Selfridge's are so much nicer though! I picked up MAC's amplifier lipstick in 'Up the Amp' for £14. It might not be a colour to everybody's taste but I love it! It does kind of make cracks in your lips show up more but it has really good st

A different kind of UGG boot....

Here are my new Ugg's :) Ryan surprised with them after the Birmingham Blogger Meet Up and they have been perfect in the snow.  I had the Ugg shoebox and they were definitely a surprise when I opened them as I'd never seen any Uggs like them before. I was expecting a pair of original ones but maybe in a different colour to the ones that I already have but these have been so useful! They have really good grip which has saved me from slipping on the ice and they're really warm. I've even been able to wear them to work! They don't have the Ugg logo on the back like the majority of Ugg's do but it is on the side. They are actually waterproof to minus 20 degrees centigrade! They are currently in the sale reduced from £234.99 to £129.99 here. xxxx Tasha

Glossybox February 2013 - Valentine's Edition

A little behind on this one, I was eagerly awaiting it and then mine arrived almost a week after everybody else got there's! But just in case any of you haven't seen it yet then here you go: The box is really pretty! Anatomicals Rose Body Cleanser Sassoon Restoring Treatment for Coloured Hair Micabella eyeshadow Fat Cat Mascara Miners Lipstick Lollipop Yay, a pink lipstick! Whenever I get make up in Glossybox, I always seem to get really unwearable shades so i'm really happy with this and even the eyeshadow is a nice neutral colour. I'm actually really pleased with this month's box! We actually got 3 make up products this time too which is nice.  My Valentines Treat's :) xxxx Tasha

January Empties

I'm quite surprised at how many items i've finished this month but also glad because it's a start to me shrinking my current collection to a manageable level! Beyonce Heat Perfume - I didn't mind usi ng this up as I already have another bigger bottle of this waiting to be opened. We actually sell this where I work so I get a lot of perfumes for a good price. This is a strong scent so more of a night time choice. I prefer the Heat Rush version which is really fruity. Revlon Colorstay Foundation - My ultimate favourite and I am going to repurchase it very soon. I've finished off two bottles this month as i'm fed up of half empty bottles everywhere. I wear shade 150 in winter and 180 Sand Beige in summer. Bath and Bodyworks Anti Bacterial Gel in Apple - This was delicious(not that I ate it aha) i'm going to purchase a bunch as mentioned in my February Wishlist here . Boots essentials make up remover pads £1.50 - Considering the price

Beauty Blogger Swap with Kel Loves

I have just taken part in my first beauty blogger swap with Kel from Kelloves . The swap was organised by Naomi from who very nicely paired everyone up! The budget was only £10 and I really could've spent so much more as I had such fun shopping for products for the swap!  Here's what Kel sent me: Pretty wrapping :) I resisting ripping this open especially to take a picture, it smelt amazing as soon as I opened it so I guessed that there might be a lush product involved! Soooo exciting!  Rimmel Apocalips in 102 Nova  This is the perfect pink for me so i'm really impressed with Kel's choice. I've avoided Boot's so not to tempt me with all the products that I don't need but i'm so happy with this! I put it on as soon as I opened it. So far, the quality seems great and i'm glad I got to try one of these so I can think about getting other colour's in the future. Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Anoth

Glasses

I'm pretty sure that i've never mentioned that I wear glasses on my blog, simply because I wish I didn't and I avoid wearing them wherever possible. I'm meant to wear my glasses all the time and have done since I was 3 :( but I only tend to wear them at work and home. Whenever I go out anywhere they are off!  I have tried contact lenses before but didn't get on with them. Here's some rare snapshots of my new glasses! Pair 1 - Karen Millen I don't think that the shape of these suit me face :/ so no picture here aha! It's annoying though because I paid extra to get the anti-glare put in these ones and they are the ones that I don't like :( Pair 2 - Missoni sneaky shot whilst making a phone call at work xxxx Tasha

My February Wishlist

I hate that I get paid by cheque as it means waiting at least an extra 5 days after pay day for my cheque to bank! Here, are a few things that are currently on my wishlist: Bioderma - I really want to try this out but i'm not going to France any time soon so I'm going to order a bottle of Ebay, they're going for about £12. Bath and Bodyworks Anti Bacterial gel  - I had an apple one which I used up last month. I know that you can get them from a lot of places but I like the pretty ones that smell yummy! I mainly get these for keeping in my pocket at work; working in a pharmacy means i'm usually surrounded by ill people so I don't want to catch anything! image from thefashiongurublog.net More Muji Storage images from www.muji.eu - I picked up a few things the other day, post to come, but I want some more! I don't think I will be happy with my make up storage until I move out and have much more space! MUA Lipsticks

OOTN - The Impossible

Last night, we went to Star City to grab some food and go to the cinema. We ate at The Harvester; one of my favourite places! Then, we went and watched 'The Impossible', the film about the tsunami. It was an interesting film but a bit gruesome :/ Here's what I quickly threw on: As I haven't really bought any clothes this month*, I am actually rummaging threw my wardrobe to see what I can put together. This is a good thing as usually I wear things about four times and then they get replaced and banished to the wardrobe :/ *only 2 black vest tops from H&M, jeggings and my new jumper from TK Maxx, okay maybe that is a few things but I've spent a lot less than I normally would!* Leather Jacket - New Look Top - River Island Trousers - New Look Heels - Dune Bag - Disney, Treds xxxx Tasha
