Glossybox August 2013

This month's Glossybox had a  high flyers theme. From what i've seen, it has had mixed reviews but i'm pleased with it! 

 Emite Make Up Eyelash Curlers

These are from a Swedish brand and retail for £20! They seem to be really good quality and they look nice too! It's an excuse for me to throw some of my old ones away. They came with replacement rubber bits too.

Available from

TRESemme Platinum Treatment 60 second shot

£1.49 full size. This is meant to transform hair so we'll see!

Oceane Make Up Remover Pen

This product is from Brazil and therefore, not available in the UK. It is a cool concept though and comes with replacement nibs so i'm excited to try it. 

 Juicy Couture, Viva La Juicy Noir Perfume Sample

I dislike miniature perfume samples but love Juicy Couture. The bottle for this perfume is gorgeous, pink liquid with a black bow. I smelt this the other day in Selfridges and quite liked it but the bottle's enough to suck me in! It has notes of berry and honeysuckle. It retails for £63 for 100ml so this sample at 1.5ml is worth about 95p.

Jelly Pong pong 2 in 1 eyeliner and shadow

 This is full size and retails for £10.50. It is a khaki colour and i actually really like it. I wouldn't call it an eyeshadow just because you can blend it into one as you can typically do that with any eyeliner. I've received other Jelly Pong Pong products in previous Glossybox's but this is my favourite one!

Available from

THis months box has an approximate value of £32.94 compared to the £12.95 cost excluding the unpriced make up remover pen.

What did you think of this month's Glossybox?

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.
