Elle Magazine June 2013

Hiya Guys,
Just a quick night post, i notice that Elle magazine were offering a great freebie in their June addition, which was a miniture Benefit They're Real mascara  and this is something i have wanted to try to ages but just didn't want to spend £19.50 on a mascara which may not work for me! and usually the mini mascara is around the £10 mark 40g of product ,but for £4 i got the mascara, the magazine, plus a alien perfume sample (which is my favorite perfume), and a Clarin's BB cream!
Now usually i would not buy this magazine as i usually only buy glamour, mainly because of the price but it seems like a very good magazine and Miley Cyrus on the front cover also made me interested in buying the magazine :)
Did you buy this months Elle 

Thankyou for reading <3

Spring Fashion + Random Wish List

Hiya Guys, after my last post being my beauty wishlist for spring i thought i would put together a fashion wishlist for spring with a few extra random items that i would love to own, so hope you enjoy...!

1- Zara Office City Handbag in Black- Know i have seen that many bloggers and you tuber's have jumped on the bandwagon when it comes to this bag including Zoella, Viviannadoesmakeup and MoreeMilk and this was how i first found out about the bag as Zara isn't usually a store that i would look in. This bag has various compartments including a padded pocket for a laptop and one for a Ipad (similar device) and even though i don't usually carry my laptop around with me all of the compartments would be very hardy for travelling. This bag comes in both black and brown and is £49.99 which isn't usually a price i would be willing to pay for a handbag but this looks like a classic piece that would come in handy and is a very good dupe for the Chanel Executive Tote.

2- Black bowler hat- when i was browsing the shops the other day i stumbled across a black bowler hat in Topshop and after trying it on i really loved the style of them and i think it would be a classic piece like the bag that would never go out of fashion. The one i tried on was £25 and personally i think that is alot to pay so i browsed around one line and was able to find one on Miss Guided for only £12.99 and looks very similar to the Topshop one.
3- Rayban Wayfarer Sunglasses- Now i know that i will probably not be able to justify the £100+ price mark on these lovely's, but i am out to find a pair with a similar style to these!.- Sunglasses-Shop !

4- Ted Baker Purse- And something that would go lovely inside that Zara bag would be a gorgeous Ted Baker Purse, there are a few different colour's that i like but i thought the pink was so lovely and these purses are great for having compartments and i really do like my purse to be organised! but again as it is Ted Baker this purse is on the pricier side at £75 but again keeping my eyes out for anything similar or a good sale!
5- Ted Baker Bow Make-Up Bag- Know i am very happy with my Glitzy Glam make up bag but when i saw this one i thought it was lovely and wanted to include it in my wishlist! like the purse this is on the pricier side at £25, but i just love the bow!

1- Ipad Mini- After being on my dad's Ipad and really loving it and at first when i saw they were releasing a mini version i want really too interested in it, but after viewing my friends mini Ipad i realized how compact it was and would fit lovely into a handbag and is more handheld. This new gadget starts at a cost of £269 and i would really like it in the white colour, so this maybe something that goes on my Christmas or birthday wishlist ?
2- Purple Gummy Earphones- Now i have had a pair of Gummy earphones before and was happy with them but my trusty pink pair have seen better days with one of them not working so i think it is about time to get a new pair and they only cost £5 in Asda or are sometimes on offer for like 2 for £8 if im not mistaken.

Please let my know whats on 
your wishlist this Spring! 
Thankyou for reading!

My Beauty Spring Wish List!

Hi there im Holly and this is my new blog, i thought i would go straight in and show you what beauty products are on my spring wishlist...!
1- Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer- I would really love to try these lip glosses as after reading reviews and personally swatching them in the store, i really love the pigmentation and the consistency of the glosses, the one i have got my eye on the most would have to be 'Big Bang' which is a beautiful bright red colour. They are currently £5.99 in both Boots and Superdrug and are on 3 for 2 promotions in both of the stores and only £5 each in Asda stores. If you would like to read a good review of these products then check out the lovely Fleur De Forces review here!
2- Loreal Paris Glamshine Stain Splash-  Again here is another similar to the Rimmel product which again look very nice and i have swatched these in store  and love the creaminess of them, and again they have a lovely shade of red called 'Juliet', but i believe there are only 6 shades available which may change over time, these have also been compared to the YSL Glossy Stains which are usually around £23. These are currently £7.99 in both Boots & Superdrug, which Boots doing a 3 for 2 offer and Superdrug a Buy one get the second half price deal! Again for a more in depth review check out the link here to Fleur's Review of these product!
3-Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer- Now this is a product that i'm sure we have all heard of as a lot of beauty gurus rave over this product and i cant believe i am yet to try it out and i am looking forward to trying this as i am in the market for a new concealer! This is currently £4.19 from Boots and is on a 3 for 2 promotion so i may have to snap one up.
4- Real Techniques Expert Face Brush- Again these brushes have also been raved over in the beauty world, and in case you didn't know these are made Samantha Chapman's Brush Line from the Pixiwoo Sisters! I have already own their stippling brush which i use to apply foundation and really do love the quality of the brushes for such an affordable price compared to the likes of Mac brushes. And the expert face brush is suppose to be great for applying cream and liquid foundation but it is know to be very multi purpose. This brush cost £9.99 in Boots and again is currently on 3 for 2.
5-Maybelline Express Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow- And my final drugstore item on my wishlist is the new colours from Maybelline's tattoo eye shadow range, and the colour's that i am interested in are 25K Gold, Light in purple and Timeless black. I currenly own 6 eyeshadow shades from the tattoo range and i really do enjoy using them and find the colour payoff well worth the price and again these product have been compared to the drugstore version of the MAC Paint pots which retail for about £14. The tattoos are priced at £4.99 in both Boots & Superdrug and both stores have them currently on a 3 for 2 offer!
Know a lot of these products are well out of my price range but they are things that i have been looking at and are interested in as they look so lovely!
1- Naked Basic Palette By Urban Decay- Now i currently own the Urban Decay Naked Palette which i love and get a lot of use out of as the colour's are so wearable, and that was one of the reasons why i was draw to this palette as the shades are a lot more matte compared to the original Naked palettes which consisted of more shimmery shades. And how compact the palette is also pulls me towards it as it would be great for on the go and to simply slip into you handbag. But this is currently priced at £20 in most stores which isn't too bad for Urban Decay but compared to the £36 price for the larger palette im not sure if it is worth the price but it does look very lovely! If you are interested in this palette i know that Debenhams currently have 10% off the price on the palette making it £18!
2- Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Make Up Base- Now this is a product very much out of my price range and is a very luxurious product in my opinion so maybe best left for my birthday wishlist as it is more of a special occasion and is not something i would buy on an every day shopping trip. But this lovely cream bronzer by Chanel does look georgous and the packaging makes the product look luxourious too! This is price at around £31! but for Chanel what do you expect and by the looks of what i have read about this product it will last you a very long time! this is also currently 10% off in Debenhams too.
3- Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser- And finally this cleanser is a product i have had my eye on for quite some time now after hearing so many good reviews of beauty gurus and i am really keen to try it out for myself. There are various diffrent pricing more this item as you can get it in different forms like the starter kit which includes muslin cloths, in a double pack or on its own. I am mostly interested in the starter pack for now and this cost about £14 and places like John Lewis, QVC and the Liz Earle site itself. And im pretty sure i heard a rumor that Boots are going to start stocking Liz Earle product which would be great news!
