This week I have been reading a lot because I want to get through some of the books which I own which means that I can purchase even more from the charity shops and help them which is something I like to do. So this is the first book which I decided that I would read
The BlurbCelebs, sunshine and beautiful boys…enough to lead a girl astray? Angela Clark can’t believe her luck! she’s an English girl living in New York with a dream job at hip magazine The Look and a sexy boyfriend. Her latest assignment takes her to Hollywood to interview hot actor and fellow Brit James Jacobs.Thrown in at the deep end she heads west with best friend Jenny dreaming of Rodeo Drive and Malibu beach. Soon Angela discovers that celebrity life in Hollywood is not all glamour, gloss and sunshine. Despite his lady-killer reputation, the only person who seems genuine is James. Then a paparazzi snaps them in an uncompromising position and suddenly Angela is thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons! Can she convince all those close to her — especially her boss and her boyfriend — not to believe everything they read? And will Hollywood ever win Angela’s heart?
The ReviewI thought I loved I Heart New York, but I’m pretty sure I loved this sequel even more! I Heart Hollywood was fast paced, equally, if not more hilarious and I couldn’t put this fabulous chick lit down.
This book takes place in just over a week and it speeds along, including a twist which even I wasn’t expecting. It was laugh out loud funny and I couldn’t help but giggle frequently at Angela’s antics. She’s disheveled, a bit ditzy, and fully flawed, but completely lovable. And it’s not just her character I loved, but all of them even the new ones who we meet in this book. The characters are so fully formed and distinct that I felt as if I knew each one, even though the novel is written from Angela’s perspective, and I couldn’t wait to see what they would do next.
I Heart Hollywood is the second installation in this fabulous, must read summer series for chick lit lovers. I am already a hell of the way through the next book which is I heart Paris and seem to be loving that as well but that will be my next book. This book could stand alone without have to read the first novel, but why deny yourself the pleasure! Pick up both these books today!
Have you read this book what did you think?
Daft Punk-Get Lucky I love this song its so amazing I think it is because it reminds me of my 18th birthday weekend also prom and then the semi final which I attended yesterday so they all have happy memories in which has been not an amazing year for me so this is the reason that I think I have been playing this song
The colour next to this is The World Is Not Enough which OPI say This rosy silver is a addictive as it is beautiful. Ths colour is a beautiful shade which is silver that has a lot of grey and pink specks of glitter in them again this is a colour which I think that I am going to get more wear out of in the winter months rather than the summer. I may purchase the full size bottle of this if I use the shade enough because it is like nothing other I own.
The red colour which you can see if The Spy Who Loved Me which OPI says A red as romantic as the secret agent inside you. This red can only be described as a pillar box red shade which is so classic and can be worn at any time of the year it does have glitter in it so this makes me want to wear this polish closer to christmas than the current time of year so this could be something that I will not repurchase the full size because of the glitter will remind me more of christmas than the summer so I will be more likely to use it then than now.
The final polish which you can see is Live And Let Die OPI describe this colour as Burn the candles at both ends in this private jet black. I would not call this a black it looks more like a dark green colour so this could mean that I will repurchase in full size because of the fact that you could wear this in the summer because it would not be as harsh as the black would be but who knows if I will repurchase the colour.
Do you own this collection or the full size let me know?
It feels like you are putting water on your face instead of an actually cleanser so this makes me feel like it is not going to clog my pores because it is thin instead of been really thick. I love the way this product can take off all my make up and it even takes of the waterproof mascaras that I use off which my eye makeup remover can struggle with so this is a massive advantage. It also means that I can now get my make up removed in a record time before it could take up to around 5 minutes to remove it with the eye remover I was using but this has the job done in around a minute or two which means that I can get to bed quicker which is always something that I am looking to do. All I do is put some on a cotton wool pad and then sweep it around my face and to remove my eye make up all I do its hold it near my eyes for a few seconds and it all come off onto the pad.
I don’t really suffer with sensitive skin but I have heard from my friends who have that this product doesn’t seem to cause them any problem so this must mean that the product is one which can be used on all skin types so this means should you be going on a girls holiday one of you can just take this and it will mean that you can all remove your make up without you having to take one each meaning more weight.
Have you tried this what did you think to it?
As you might remember from my superdrug haul I purchased this foundation I have now been using it for a few weeks now and have decided that I will tell you what I think about this item.
I must admit I hate the packaging for this because it looks so cheap I know this is a cheap brand but the fact that it is a squeezy tube you cant get the correct amount out like you can when it is a pump as different amounts come out so that is the first problem with this foundation.I usually end up with way too much product coming out and then having to waste some no wonder this foundation seems to be going down quickly. The other problem for me is that it is not matte but this is solved because I just then use my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. I don’t believe really that this foundation is very illuminating but it is not something which has really been bothering me it may with some other people so if it does don’t bother purchasing this foundation.
I have the shade beige which is perfect for my skin when I need a bit of coverage more than I would get with a BB cream I think that this could be used in the winter months when you really need coverage because if you don’t you look pale your skin is not at it’s best. It seems to last all day on me without the need of a primer if I use powder so this means you would be able to wear this at an occasion without having to spend a lot of money. I used this for prom and clubbing after and it was still on when I got home around 9 hours later and buckets of sweat later. It is a cheap foundation been priced at £5 and it can be purchased here.
If you have tried this product what did you think of it let me know?
1. You must only read each new entry on your birthday, there is one for every year until you are thirty.
2. This is a private manual between you and me.
3. No peeping at the next entry unless it’s your birthday!
When Lois Bates is handed the manual, she can barely bring herself to read it as the pain of losing her dad is still so raw. Yet soon his advice is guiding her through every stange of her life – from first love and relationships to her career. The manual can never be a substitute for having her dad back, but through his words Lois learns to start living again, and discovers that happiness is waiting around the corner
I apologies this post should have been up a couple of months ago but I thought it had published off my phone and just noticed that it actually hadn’t so I have decided that I will put this post up now.
Back in April I was supposed to receive my swap of Hettie but we had all kinds of trouble with the royal mail and this meant that she had to send me another package which I told her she didn’t have to do as she had already forked out the money. Around a week or two after she posted the second time I received a love envelope with loads of goodies in which was the swap. As you can see from the photo above I received a lot of products and here are what they are.
One of the first things I noticed was the W7 eyeshadow brush 01 I have never used a brush which has been from W7 so this means that I can test and see if I will purchase more in the future. Unfortunately I have not tried this brush out yet as I am currently testing out a new set of brushes which I purchased but this brush looks like it is going to be very good for blending out eyeshadows.
Another product which I recieved in this swap from W7 was a lipstick from the pinks range its called Raspberry Ripple. This Lipstick is a matte finish it is a bright pink which is so wearable ever single day which means that I am going to get some wear out of this product. I think it does have a slight smell to it maybe it does actually smell of Raspberry Ripple who knows. This may become one of my go to lipsticks this summer.
I also received 2 Rimmel nail varnishes the first one is one of their 60 seconds range and the colour which I received is Instyle Coral which is one of the most beautiful coral colours that I have ever owned. I actually used this one one of my friends for prom and it looked nice with a tan so this is a colour which I think that I could be using a lot over these summer months. I have previously tried some colours from this range but for some reason never the one which I received.
The other Rimmel nail varnish i got was the crack your colour top coat in silver clash which is a crackle top coat. I still have a few of these types of top coat from when they where all on tried a couple of years ago. So I have not used this on my nails yet but what I can see it looks a good top coat I may use this on my toes this summer as I am not really a big crackle fan anymore
I also recieved 3 lip products from Rimmel first I will talk about one of their lipsticks from the moisture renew range in the shade Sweetheart Tulips 215. Now I will admit that I do own this colour already now I believe that this does have SPF20 in the product I could be wrong but this is the most beautiful pink which is pretty subtle but also have a bit of shimmer in as well I think that this could be worn at any occasion so I will wear this just like I do my other one.
The next Rimmel Lipstick which I received was Birthday Suit which is a brown colour which almost like toffee brown instead of nude which I thought it would be when I open the package and saw this lipstick I have swatched this I am not a massive fan it feels like wax so I think this will go into my make up boxes which are back up until I fancy using it or end up selling it on.
The finally Rimmel Product I recieved was the Royal Gloss in Candy’licious this lipgloss tastes amazing it is so sweet you almost want to lick it off. It comes out of the tube really bright but when it goes onto your lips it looks really sheer so this means that it could amazing over a lipstick in the summer. This is how I think that I am going to wear it so don’t be surprised if you see this on the blog in the future.
The final lipgloss which I recieve is Fruity Strawberry I must admit that I thought that it may smell off strawberry but it doesn’t so this is not something which I was too impressed with it has a lot of shimmer in it as well so I think that this may be used when I am having a make up free day because I am not a massive fan of this but it will get used over time.
I received another nail varnish which I couldn’t be more pleased with it is Sally Hansen Hot Magenta and it is a beautiful hot pink. This shade is going to get so much wear this summer I think I will be using it on both my toes and my hands this just reminds me of the sun and it is a colour which I would have purchased myself so I am so glad that I have this colour because I know Sally Hansen are a very good brand of nail polish and they last for a while without chipping
For my nails I also receive the Essence pocket beauty sos nail files which are so small which means that you can take them and when you are on the the go and then you can file them and not have to wait till you get home and do them so this is going to be something which I will use so much because I am always splitting nails when travelling and forget a nail file.
I also recieved some La La Lashes in La La Desire I was going to use these eye lashes from prom but then ended up having really bad eyes so I thought that it was best that I didn’t use any so I am going to use these one day probably when I go out or attend a party but I can’t wait to use these as they have gold glitter within the short and long lashes.
I also recieved the Rimmel Glam’eyes liquid liner in Intense Plum 003 due to the colour which I have this in I am going to use it for a cat eye look during a night out where I am not wearing loads of make up because of the fact that I find it less intense than a black which means that you don’t stand out too much and look over done when your not aiming to you seem to be able to get the perfect amount of product out with one application so this is a product which I could get a lot of use out of in the coming months because it is easy to use
NYC’s Eye shadow 920 A-Lister is another item which I received now I have used this in inner corner of my eye and have been told that it is a dupe for MAC Vanilla this is something which I was going to purchase before the swap now this is not going to be anywhere as good as the MAC on but it does what I want so thank you for saving me some money.
I know the picture on this is not the best but this is because of the fact that the items are very small. For another surprise I have never shopped in Lush yes I know every beauty blogger has but I must be one of the only ones who hasn’t.
This is what I picked up when shopping in there the first thing whats a lip tint which is called It Started With A Kiss. Lush say about this product didn’t every girl want to be a Snow White with those kissable red lips- well we all have the chance with this apple and cinnamon lip balm tint. I really can’t smell the cinnamon in this product all I taste is the apple which is not something that I am loving if honest but hopefully it will make my lips beautiful when I am not looking for a lipstick it doesn’t look very red either and doesn’t seem to be making my lips very soft. You can purchase this in stores or online here for £5.50.
As you can see I purchased the Red and Blue FUN. I have not used these products yet but love the idea that they are multipurpose because of the fact that you can use them as play dough you can use them as shower gel and even shampoo even though I don’t think that I will be using them as shampoo I love Aussie too much.
The blue fun is described as a mix of lavender,Moroccan chamomiles and chamomile blue essential oils which will be perfect for bedtime baths so I have decided that one day when I have a bath late on in the day I will use this product because it may help me sleep better than I currently do. You can purchase the blue fun here on in store for £5.
The red fun is described as mandarin and orange essential oils will make you think of sunny orange groves whatever they are and freshly squeezed orange juice which will brings summer to your bath well anything which brings a bit of summer into my life at the moment is so well received because of the fact that I live in England and don’t see much sun in my life.You can purchase the FUN in store or online here for £5.
I have realised that recently that my lips have not been than soft so I purchased the Mint Julps Lip Scrub and wow this tastes amazing it has peppermint,vanilla and tagetes oil in it and I have been using this product for a couple of days now and can already see the difference so if you are looking for a lip scrubs which works you can get your hands on this one for £5.25 either in store or online here.
What products do you think I should purchase from Lush?
