Glossybox April 2013


 This month's Glossybox was a special edition designed by Pearl Lowe; how cute is the packaging! 

3 out of the 5 products are winners for me this month and I can make use of the other 2.


The winner has definitely got to be the Essie Nail Varnish in Geranium £7.99. Recently the only brand of nail varnish that I have been buying is Essie and at £8 a pop they're a little pricey so along with all the other subscribers i'm definitely not complaining!

I have liked all of the other products that I have used from Balance Me before. This is their Balance Me Radiance Face Mask. I've used this already; it has light exfoliating grains in, smells good and has a nice texture. 

Richard Ward Style Spray - This is the least exciting product for me in the box. I'm lazy when it comes to my hair and i'd rather not put too much product in it but i'll give it a go at some point.


 Nip + Fab Mango Body Butter - I've wanted to try the pistachio version of this for a while but I love mango. I've emptied this pot already and the body butter was really nice so I might go and get the full size pistachio one now.

Yves Rocher Nutritive - This moisturises for 24 hours so is meant to be great for dry skin.

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.
