AMAZING PRODUCT: beauty uk - glam nails

First time ever using any of the beauty glam products available at superdrug, I saw a stunning matte cream nail polish for £1.99 and thought it was worth a try.
I've just painted my nails with it now and it calls for a very good review!
When applying the first coat i realised the colour had a slight classy shimmer/shine to it, its absolutely beautiful!
For those of you have not yet tryed Beauty UK products in superdrug go and get yourselves a bargin nail polish! You won't be disappointed

Absolutely Beaming with happiness!

As I informed you all in one of my other blog posts on Monday the 9th of January I joined a slimming group called Slimming World, I have been intrigued to see whether the diet actually works as it claims you can eat when ever you want and its a healthy eating plan where you don't get hungry.
Anyway despite having a horrible cold and today dreadful ear ache :( I am beaming with smiles as my second weigh in i have lost 4 pounds!! (so much more than i expected)

I am so happy with this and for anyone wanting to loose weight get yourself to your nearest Slimming World Group or join online at
I will do a post showing what the pack given at the group contains and will also post up more updates on my progress with my over all target being 21pounds!
Thanks for reading and please leave me some comments below ;)

Favourite Items Post (rather long) - but bargins that had to be reviewed ;)

 Hair slide to add volume when styling hair into a bun. I found this item in primark for £1.50, I have been a fan of the donut hair rings for quite a while as they are great for creating a quick volumed bun, however this hair accessory is a bit more complicated as more clips and bobby pins are required to hold the style in place.
I would definitely recommend going and getting one of these because they are a season must had and you can create easy interesting hair styles with it!
(I will post some pictures of hair styles I've done with this hair slide)
 17 from boots smokey eye shadow palette that i received as a Christmas present! Although I don't wear eye shadow everyday this set of products has become one of my favourites, before getting this i didn't realise how pigmented and good quality 17 eye shadows are! get yourselves into Boots girlie's! Highly recommended.. I also know that they do a wide variety of colours in the individual shadows priced around £2.99

Instructions at the top on how to create the smokey Eye Look!

Beautiful Candles and lantern, excuse the clutter in the background;

These candles are the best scented candles I have had in quite while not quite as brilliant as Yankee Candles however for £1.50 a candle you cannot go wrong. The Red Candle on the left is WILD BERRY scented and the one on the right is PASSION FLOWER, they are absolutely gorgeous and have a long burning life span. I picked them up on sale at Primark near the tills they had been reduced from £2.00 to £1.50.
They are my Faveee as i do have a lot of Love for relaxing Candles! <3

Favourite Eye Liner from the New Soap&Glory cosmetic line available at boots £5.00 for this eyeliner which is a very black smoulder similar to the MAC Kohl Pencil in shade Smoulder. Brilliant Product

Bored of Breaking Coat Hangers so I have invested in several packs of Primark Wooden Hangers for £2.50 for a pack of 5 these are heavy duty coat hangers guaranteed to last and also make wardrobes look a little more coordinated and classy!

Picked up these lashes from Primark for £1.00 in the packet they look very long and luscious so I thought they were worth a try as in my MAC post I posted about MAC eyelashes which are much more pricey and i wanted to see the difference in results from Splurge and Save Fake Eyelashes..
Anyone else tried these?
Last but definitely not least! A couple of lovely Revlon Lipsticks purchased from Revlon at Boots! Left; Revlon colour burst lipstick in 030 Fuchsia
( I seem to have misplaced the one on the left but i will find it and write the shade on)
Swatches of the colours above! They are both fantastically pigmented, Revlon and MAC are my current favourite lipsticks as I find them long lasting and moisturising without being to waxy. 
Thank You very much for Reading, Please leave comments

Busy, busy week + a fantastic Superdrug Bargin!

This week has been my first week on a healthy eating/weight loss diet in order for me to loose a stone and half in the next 3 months, I'm on my 3rd day of the diet and so far  i am doing really well, I've joined the slimming club; Slimming World to try a healthy way to shift the extra pounds i gained over Christmas, I'm going along to this club to support my Mum has been before and found it was a brilliant way to loose weight without being hungry. However it is a big shock to the system when your not used to helping yourself to unhealthy snacks! As i am a self confessed CHOCOHOLIC!

check out the slimming world website: you can also join online if you don't fancy attending the classes

I will update my blog in the next few weeks to let you know my success on this diet plan, I'm also back to college now and the work is starting to pile on but I'll soon get back into the swing of things! Combining my jobs and College can sometimes be stressful however at the moment I'm feeling organised and refreshed.
Another thing I'm going to mention is that I popped into my local Superdrug on my way home and picked up Superdrug's own brand Dry Shampoo, when i took it to the till, the lady told me that i could pick up another 2 of the dry shampoo for the same brice meaning that i got 3 full size bottles of Dry Shampoo for an amazing £1.99! I would definitely reccomend getting this before the offer runs out as it is just as good as Batiste and the superdrug version have lovely sents too!

Is anyone else on any new year diets and have any tips to shred weight or picked up any high street bargins?
