Make up tip #4

If you have thin lashes, use a dryer mascara instead of a wet mascara. A dryer formula will allow you to keep combing through without your lashes clumping leaving you with full evenly spread out lashes with no clumps. It also helps to wiggle the mascara brush for volume and to reduce clumps further!

Prom time!

Hi everyone so it's getting to that time of year again where prom is upon us and if your unorganised like many people I have some great budget items which I'm sure you will love as much as I do and for the price I think there fab!

First of all the dress:

Newlook mint green neck overlay- £24.99
Asos pearl embellishment- £31.50
Asos l swing dress with crotchet trim- £22.00

If you are looking for more expensive dresses ax Paris and chi chi london are great also Coast have some great dresses but are more £70+


This spring/summer I have loved the style of shoes that have been in our high street stores especially the strappy heels I think they look smart and dressy but look so nice with jeans too so there an all round win win!

Newlook- nude pointed shoe £14.99
Newlook- stone embellishment ankle front heels- £24.99
Coast-Michela shoes- £65.00

I think new look and asos have some brilliant shoes at the minute but if your looking to pay a bit more then Coast have a great variety too.

Finally an accessory is a must the ultimate clutch bag and some sparkle can make a look. My favourite high street shop as always for jewellery is accessorize they have a range of pieces which are under £20

Dermalogica clean start breakout clearing kit

Hi everyone so recently I purchased dermalogica clean start breakout clearing kit and I thought I would share a little bit of a review with you. When I first bought the kit at £23.50 I was a bit apprehensive because I go to a salon where I have a facial and they use the products, so talked me into clean start and for the price I wondered if it was actually worth it. I'm happy to say I absolutely loved it, if you suffer with a breakouts it's definitely worth the money. I get the occasional breakout and it cleared them almost straight away also to say that the bottle is quite small you only need a little drop of the face wash as it lathers up really well and spreads all of the face. The toner is also great when I first looked at it I was quite excited as I had never really come across a spray toner but it's so refreshing and the mist actually feels like it soaks in pot your face unlike some spray toners. The overnight and daytime treatment I was shocked by, because I didn't think it would make a difference but I had a red spot and put the overnight treatment on my face with my normal moisturiser underneath and when I woke up in the morning it was still there but looked nearly unnoticeable. Overall I really did like the product and have now purchased the products in full size which in my opinion are quite good value for money if you would like to look at purchasing then I've included the link below to the dermalogica website:

Frittata burger!

Hi everyone so at the start of my blog I said I would also be sharing with you all lifestyle things too and I went food shopping yesterday at a new morrisons near my house and picked up one of their free magazines. In the magazine there are some great recipes and one of my favourites is the frittata burger which I'm going to make very soon but for now I thought I would share the recipie as it is getting towards summer now and it reminds me off a beautiful summer dish plus it's great for everyone as it is vegetarian.
Serves 4 and can be made in just over 1hr.

2tbsp olive oil 
2 red peppers 
160g baby spinach
6 eggs, beaten
100g crumbly cheese
3 salad onions, trimmed and chopped
1 ciabatta bread, cut into 4 pieces
4tbsp tomato chuney to serve(optional)

1. Heat the oven to 200c/ 180c fan/Gas 6. Grease an 18cm square baking tin with 1tbsp of the oil.
2. Place the whole peppers on a baking sheet and brush with the remaining oil. Roast for 30 minutes until the skins begin to become a little soft. Transfer to a bowl, cover and leave for 5 mins until cool enough to handle, then peel the skins, remove seeds and slice. Turn the oven down to 180c/160c fan/Gas 4.
3. Meanwhile, place the spinach in a colander and pour over boiling water until it wilts. Leave for a few minutes, until cool enough to handle, then squeeze out the excess water and roughly chop. 
4. Season the eggs and stir in the cheese, salad onions, spinach and peppers. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 mins. To serve, cut the frittata into 4, sandwhich in a piece of ciabatta and add a spoonful of tomato chutney. 

Each serving does contain 494 calories, a lot however it can be a summer treat!

Summers coming!!

Hey everyone so summer seems to be approaching fast now and seen as the weather doesn't quite think so I've decided to tell you about a product which is meant to be amazing!! Which is the fakebake airbrush fake tan it's a spray on self tan, you just apply soft light downward strokes and after each stroke/coat decide on how dark you want your tan, if darker apply another coat. Remember always exfoliate your skin first to remove dead skin cells and also for an even tan. 
You can buy a 120ml for £7.99 or a 210ml depending on the website for £25.00 be careful because in stores they will charge more! 
If your not going to use it for example every week I would personally buy the 120ml because you won't need a lot each time.
