♥Mini holiday photo's♥

안녕 친구 :)
It's been a while I know almost 2 weeks since I last posted. Sorry >< I really have been meaning to post more frequently but I got sick again the summer heat really isn't my friend at all. How is it even possible to catch a cold in the summer...seriously?!
Anyway on Monday I was surprised by my lovely dad to a mini 3 day 2 night holiday, to my favourite part of the country.....Torquay, Devon. It was so beautiful down there as usual sitting in the gardens of Cockington have cream tea ahhh that's the life Haha! I've been going there since I was a baby and I'm 20 now so it kind of has a special place in my heart^^ Every year waking up at 3:30am, leaving at 4:00am to start our 4hour journey down there brings back so many happy childhood memories:)

*Pre-warning photo spam alert:) *


Besides having breakfast the first thing on the engender was a mid morning cream tea in the picturesque village of Cockington. Cockington is possibly the most adorable little village I've ever seen, and has the best cream tea's I've ever tasted. Besides a good old Cornish pasty Devon is famous for there cream tea I'm not entirely sure if the Cream tea is known abroad so I'll tell you what it is^^
Basically it's a delicious sweet dessert type snack that is eaten along with a good old cup of British tea Plain scones topped with strawberry jam and clotted cream. ohhhh just talking about it now is making me crave it, believe me the Cream teas served in this place are the best I highly recommend if your in the area  check it out!!

Whenever I have cream tea here the scones are always lovely and warm ahhh it's seriously making me hungry now!>< These tasty treats are delicious but so bad if your on a diet like me but one wont hurt right?

Piano man ^D^ this guys always there setting a cheerful mood in the summer sun.

Me and my lovely younger brother who just so happens to have the same name as our new born future King George;)

*Sailor Mars on an off day haha*


Day 2 was a venture to Brixham the cute little fishing town west of Torquay.

This place sells the best fudge I've ever had.


 My holly grail ice cream store, I've never even herd of half the flavors they do here. Apple crumble? how can anyone eat apple crumble ice cream the dessert is gross. blahhhh

Possibly the creepiest doll I've ever seen.


Best bit of pastry this country has to offer a good old pasty^^

Nom Nom bubblegum ice cream mwahaha

Thank you for reading I hope you liked it(♥_♥) 
until next time

♥GlossyBox the July 2013 Edition♥

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! It's GlossyBox time whoop whoop!
With all this shamazing weather we're having here in the UK I've been in a seriously good mood, summer sun shine always makes me smile. It's the best summer we've had here in years seriously! 
So when I woke up to find this beauty sitting on the door step my day started with a huge smile.

The box is so so cute an summery:) Cause of the great weather at the moment I was extremely curious to see what goodies they had this month.

Each month the box comes with a leaflet explaining what the products are, how to use them and where you can buy them.

Always so pretty and girly with a little bow♥

 This Months goodies Yay I can't wait to try these products!

Coola Mineral Face SPF 20 Unscented.

Coola Organic's Suncare Collection is hypoallergenic, free of parabens and packed with antioxidants.

Organic Acai Oil delivers powerful anti-ageing benefits, while organic Evening Primrose and Linseed Oils reduce inflammation and balance moisture.  

Full size: 50ml £29.99

I think I'll give this one away, it's only SPF 20 I prefer suncare with a higher SPF.

SLEEK makeup
Pout paint.

Pout Paints are intensive, long lasting lip pigments that are made to be mixed. Only a tiny amount is needed when applying cause these are highly pigmented.

Full size: 8ml £4.99

The previous day I saw the SLEEK Pout Paints in Superdrug and was umming about whether or not to but them. So glad I didn't I'm looking forward to trying these lip pouts.


Nail stickers used instead of polish for a chic look.

One set from £9.99

I haven't tried the new nail sticker trend yet, to be honest I find them a tad expensive for my liking. Plus I don't have a steady hand so it will be really interesting to see how they will turn out.

Alterna Haircare
Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist

Adds texture, volume and healthy shine to all hair types.

Full size: 125ml £23.00

With the sun out don't forget to protect those locks!

Spray misty for me facial spritz

This facial spritz with calming lavender and refreshing peppermint extracts helps hydrate and calm skin.

♥RiRi Woo Lippy {mac review}♥

안녕 ^^ Everyone just a little review/ impressions post for you today:)
WHAAAAA!! I'm super duper exciting I've finally gotten my hands on RiRi Woo from Rihanna's limited online exclusive.
 Actually I was extremely lucky to have even got this lippy. When they first released RiRi Woo I wasn't able to get my hands on it, *so sad* by the time I'd had the time to get to my local MAC it was sold out!!! So when I herd it was coming back along with a few other products I got super excited.  As soon as it was released I got straight on the website to order. Frustrating thing is though I wanted RiRi Boy so badly as well I was literally about to press pay literally 2 seconds before it just completely sold out. Dam it I know I've got bad luck but seriously?! That's just ridiculous!!! But I got RiRi Woo finally so I'm not complaining....>_<  

literally wanted to rip open the box! 
RiRi Woo YAY!!!

RiRi Woo is a gorgeous red retro matte as soon as I saw it I had to have it, being a fan of retro looking makeup red lips and black eyeliner it's the perfect colour for my liking^^

I was a little overly excited when getting it that I used it before taking a photo sorry><  
Just like the viva glam lippy it has a signature but instead of being in the packaging it's imprinted in the lipstick it's self. Similar to Etude House lippy just not as cute^^  *Etude House reference again haha*    

Product info:
-Retro matte lippy
-Online exclusive
-*Sold out now :( *

Purchased from: MAC
Price: £14

Swatch time;p 

Swatch with 1 swipe of the lippy.

I'm head over heels in love with this lippy it's unreal seriously I wish that it would be made part of the permanent collection. *Please MAC I would love you forever!* 

The colour is absolutely gorgeous and the finish is seriously matte no shine what so ever. I've worn it to work, an I do pretty long shifts anything from 7-9 hours and it stays on all day. It's not necessary to reapply but cause it stays on pretty well but by all means reapply if you feel like. But for me personally I didn't feel the need to reapply at all. 
The only thing I didn't really like was that it's so drying on the lips. Of course it's to be expected seeing as thought it's a matte lippy after all. But even so it's seriously drying so I highly recommend exfoliating your lips and applying a balm or moisturizer beforehand. 
I normally exfoliate my lips with Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, one of my favourite products from Lush plus it tastes good ;) 

♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5 
Seriously loved it, if it was made part of the permanent collection it would be my go to matter lippy!

Have you tried any of Rihana's summer collection? 
What did you think, were you as crazy about it as me? 
Let me know in the comments bellow^^

Thank you for reading,
until next time 
bye bye

♥Etude House♥Sleeping Pack {review}♥

It's been a while since I last posted, life has been a little busy what with work and working out. Yes I'm still struggling on with my weight loss journey but I'll get there eventually *Fighting!* Plus added the fact I've been a little sick so there wasn't enough hours in the day for me to post. So I do apologize for the lack of posts recently.
But I'm back with a review for you girls today. Another Etude House review, I've been buying a lot of Etude House products recently, everything is just so cute how can a girl resist?

에뛰드 하우스 10 Hours Sleeping Pack~
 Pore and Sebum Control

Direction and ingredients in Korean
Direction in English

Product info:

-Etude House sleeping facial pack (pore tightening) smooth & non-oily complexion with 10 hour energized sleeping efficacy.

-After facial cleansing, apply a pea size amount of the pack to face prior to bedtime, leave on overnight. And rinse off in the morning.

-Pore tightening.
-Control sebum.
-Non-oily complexion.

Purchased at :Kokosmetics
Price: £12
Amount: 150ml

Cap makes it easy to control the amount of product used.

Before sleeping pack.
Watery texture.
After pack applied.
Where to buy?:
Again I ordered from my favourite store again, Kokosmetics you can purchase this item from them Here. But for you girls that live outside the UK and Europe Etude House sleeping pack )pore tightening) are available at the following store along with the other sleeping packs in this line:

Just like the I'm blooming mist it has a very faint scent, a mix between a mint and light floral scent. Pleasant but very faint.

It's the usual super cuteness from Etude House I just can't help falling in love with the super cute packaging. This particular facial pack comes in a sweet pastel mint green coloured tube with a 'painting' of a beautiful fairy asleep under a moon.

Final thoughts:
After using this sleeping pack for a good 3-4 weeks, I haven't really seen or felt any difference in my skin. Etude House claims that it tightens pores and leaves skin with a non-oily complexion, sadly I have to disagree. My skin has become pretty oily recently so I was hoping that this pack would help control excess sebum, but I failed to notice any difference. If anything in the mornings I found my T-zone was slightly more oily than before. Overall I was pretty disappointed with this pack which pains me to say considering how much I totally love Etude House, so my expectations were pretty high I must say. Even though I was overly disappointed with this product I did like the constancy and how moisturizing it feels once first applied. I just didn't like the oil on my skin in the mornings.
As much as I love Etude House I wont be repurchasing this facial pack again. Sorry Etude House I love you but I didn't love your sleeping pack.

Wont be repurchasing.

Until next time
Bye Bye
