Summer Giveaway *CLOSED*

Hello my lovelies,

How are you?? I am feeling much, much better and I finally found some time to put together this small summer giveaway for you. Now, before I show you the 4 items I am giving away let me just mention that 3 of them were purchased by me and one of them was given to me at a L'oreal event recently and I thought it would be nice to include it in this giveaway and give ,one of you, the chance to try it out. However this is not a sponsored giveaway since, as I said, I purchased most of the products myself.
Now the theme for this giveaway is.....SUMMER...!!! Summer will officially be here in a couple of days (5 to be exact) so it makes total sense!!
Before showing you pictures of the prizes though I, also, wanted to say that I wish I could afford more stuff. I have been planning this giveaway for over a month now and I only just managed to pick up the 4th item. I know some of you will understand exactly what I am on about. Anyway.....enough with the extra large intro...on to the prizes...!!

The prizes
1. MUA "Undressed" eyeshadow palette 
2. L'oreal Glam Bronze Sunkissed Palette*
3. MAC "Culturalized" eyeshadow duo
4. Garnier Ambre Solaire BB cream

How to: Ombre nails

Heya everyone,

How are you guys? Long time no speaky (nope? no black books fans??O.K. then :P)!
So, this post has been in the works for over a week now. I was questioning how I was going to go about it and when I would find the time to sit down and work on the nails and the pictures. Finally, I took the plunge last night and here are the results of my hard work ;)

p.s. you can use 2, 3 or 4 colours(even 5 if you want and you have the nail bed for it)... ;) 

Some colour ideas

Now, I thought I should also make a list of the colours I used as a reference.... (all colours are listed from top to bottom as seen on the nail)

1.  Orly "Pixy Styx", China Glaze "Peachy Keen", Chanel "June"& Model's Own "Lemon Meringue"  
2. Salome "No 29", China Glaze "Peachy Keen" & Essie "Watermelon" 
3. OPI "Ski Teal We Drop", OPI "Thanks a Wind million"& Essie "Mint Candy Apple" 
4. Essie "Lilacism" & Essie "Mint Candy Apple"

I wanted to keep this post short and sweet really however I would love you know whether you are planning on rocking the ombre nails and whether this post helped at all...!! ;) 



April Favourites

Heya guys,

How are you? I know I have been MIA again but I have been sick since Easter Sunday (orthodox easter sunday that is :P). I am feeling better but still not 100% which makes me a bit angry since the weather is beautiful and there are so many things I could be doing besides sitting around the house and blowing my nose every 15 seconds.
However I am feeling well enough to concentrate for 20 minutes and post my April favourites :p
Now let me just say I have been trying to shop my stash as much as possible so a lot of my favourites are items I have been using for a while now. Also, I have created a list of upcoming posts because I feel like I need to get back to my posting routine. I hope you like the upcoming posts I have planned..;)
