    i've been living in the university library for the last few days as i have a mountain of assignments due in friday, so it was lovely to come home yesterday and find a pretty little package waiting on my doorstep. like many others, i am signed up to receive a monthly beauty box from feel unique. it works very much in the same way as glossybox however i've heard that sample sizes tend to be better in the feel unique boxes so i thought i'd give it a go!


    overall i was impressed with the box as i will be able to use pretty much everything inside. the main highlight for me was the tigi bed head candy sensations as my hair tends to be a bit flat and needs a little help in the volume department. I was impressed with the size of the Annick Goutal perfume sample as i usually HATE receiving tiny perfume sprays but this is a decent size bottle....only downside is it smells a lot like my Dermologica fash wash! i'm sure i will use the Clarisonic cleanser and glad its suited to my oily skin tone and the candy pink nails inc polish is one i will definitely wear! Very happy with the box and will continue my sub through to the new year!

    friday night, home alone... so i decided to experiment with my nails. Baby pink with a browny/purple tip. they're all dodgy lengths, the lines aren't straight and i can't paint my own nails to save my life but i think they came out fairly preettttyyyy!

    I am desperate to get my hands on some of these lip transfers from US company Violent Lips but as i've promised my mum i will curb my spending, I will have to rely on Father Christmas to bring me a pack in my stocking! Violent Lips They work in a similar to nail wraps or transfer tattoos, whereby you cut the lip transfer to shape and blot with water. I've heard really good things from other people who have used them and i'm really excited to channel my inner 'GaGa' for all the upcoming Christmas parties!

    I've been toying with the idea of purchasing some American Apparel disco pants lately and i've just got the urge to just think 'sod it' and buy them...but i'm wondering how flattering are these likely to be! I am the first to admit that I don't have skinny legs and these look like you'd need to be a size 6/8 to pull them off...especially without wearing a heels.

    According to the posts i've found on-line about them, they are really flattering but i'm pretty dubious and at £70 they aren't really in the 'i'll just order them and see' category! i think i'm gonna have to avoid the temptation and wait till i'm home to pay AA a visit so i can try these babies on!

    I've only just received my latest GlossyBox as I have them sent to my home address rather than sent to me at uni meaning i have to wait till i go home or till someone comes to visit to get my hands on it! This is my second Glossybox and i actually think i prefer it to the October box as it has products which i have wanted to try out but wouldn't consider buying myself!

    I've been meaning to try out Nail wraps for ages so it was really nice to get a pack of those and i also got a full size bag of Dead Sea bath salts so i pretty much got my moneys worth back in 2 products. I'm not a huge fan of perfume samples as i am really fussy when it comes to fragrances so was a bit disappointed with being sent them again with this box.

    I am a big fan of the 'Monu' skin perfecter though. I used it this morning before applying my make-up and it has made my skin lovely and soft and my make-up has held in place for hours so i would definitely recommend to anyone! Really looking forward to the December box...I have high hopes!

    So i'm pretty late to the party but i've just signed up and received my first beauty box from sampling service Glossybox. Incase anyone hasn't heard of it, you basically pay £10.00 per month (plus postage) and in return you are sent a cute little pink box containing several sample sized beauty products. I received my October box late (as i only signed up to the service half way through the month) so i already knew what i would be receiving. i was really excited about the products i received in this box as the nail polish and eye-liner were both colours that really suited me and i absolutely adore Dermalogica. I'm going to test out the face wash and masque tonight so will post my thoughts in the next post....really looking to my November box now!

    all that glitters - OPI Rainbow Connection

    Today i finally tried out OPI's Rainbow Connection from their recent Muppets Collection. I've been after this nail varnish for ages but it's been out of stock everywhere so i was really excited to finallly get my hand on it! For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, it's a gorgeous clear polish absolutely crammed with different sized and coloured glitter. It's really nice compared to other glitter polishes i've worn as the pieces are so big and are really noticeable on your nails. i've painted mine over a Shelac colour called Red Baroness but i'm really excited to try with a bubblegum pink shade soon!
