Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me


Hey everyone,

Maybelline Baby Lips have definitely had a lot of talk about them recently and with them being only in the US it was hard for so many people to get their hands on them. However, now that they have been released into the UK we don't have to wait any longer!

It surprised me at how soft these balms feel on the lips, even though it looks like quite a hard balm. It's said to give you 8 hour hydration well sadly it doesn't, more close to 3 or 2, once the balm is on your lips it will be moisturising but when it starts to wear off the benefits do too.  What's also surprising is that they cost under £3 for a balm that has high quality ingredients including, vitamin E, aloe, shea butter and also has a sheer tint. 

At the moment Maybelline has released 6 lip balms, 3 of which include an SPF: Hydrate (lemon and basil scent), Mint fresh (mint scent) and intense care (cherry almond scent). All of those apply clear and add a nice glossy shine to the lips. The other 3 are tinted but only slightly. However these ones do not have any SPF and come in these shades and scents: Cherry Me (cherry scented with a red tinge), Pink Punch ( Passion fruit scent with a light pink shade) and Peach Kiss (nude with a peach scent). 

Overall, I really like these Baby Lips and would definitely buy more however I do hope they bring more shades out so there is more of a variety. 

Have you tried these?

You can pick these up at boots for £2.99 here.

Seasonal Snaps - Summer

Hey Guys,

This is the second seasonal collab with Charlotte better known to you as, To the moon and back. Of course as it's August it's the Summer post! We had a great day picnicking and munching on homemade cakes and we also took a change of outfits to show you.  
It wasn't quite as scorching as the weather forecasters predicted but that's British summer time for you! It just meant that the pesky breeze stopped us from playing badminton, but you should have seen us trying to hit the shuttlecocks....

Anyway, we had lots of fun so here are the outfits

Galaxy Print Nails

Hey Everyone!

If you have read my previous nail posts then you would know I love to do nail art  and experiment with different colours and glitters. Then, when I ordered these nail wheels I thought they would be great for doing nail tutorials. For a long time now, I have been wanting to try out these galaxy print nails as they are very unique and pretty cool! I never thought how easy they were until I actually tried them out.
There are a lot different styles of this design but I thought I'd show you my spin on it.

Here's What You'll Need:

Black nail polish
Dark blue polish
Light grey polish
Pink nail polish
Silver Glitter polish
White nail art pen or you could use a white polish with a toothpick (optional)

Let's get started! 

I hope you liked this quick and easy nail tutorial - if you want more posts like this than comment down below any nail art requests!

Spain 2013 - Holiday pics!

On the plane to Spain - got a bit boring though!

The pool was so amazing! It was so hot that you just had to roll in to cool down. Definitely, most of the time was spent in that pool.

On the most hottest day we went to the Alhambra, which was so amazing! The gardens had such pretty flowers and there was so many intricate carvings/designs. 

Here are some more photos of me having fun in the pool.

I had the best time in Spain and I really didn't want to leave. It was so hot that you would not want to venture away from the pool. It was definitely one of my favourite holidays!

I hope your all having a great summer and expect some more posts coming soon!
