Mel's Sweet Bar Haul +

Hey loves,

Apologies for being M.I.A for over a week *slap hand* hope you're all well.

As promised I wanted to do a blog post on some of the fabulous items I purchased from Mel's lovely shop 'Mel's Sweet Bar'

The moment Mel announced the website officially open via Twitter I had to clicky on over and peruse around her online shop at such great excitement adding plenty to my shopping cart. Cue the shopping list:

Honey Pot Soap
Bubble Gum Bubbles Soap
Strawberry Cuppy Cake Soap
Strawberries and Cream Soap
Hello Kitty Soap (x2)
Kiss Me Clean Soap
Cupcake Bath Bomb (x2)
Soak Like A Rockstar Bath Bomb

I absoloutely adore all of these items, they smell so good!! The designs are super cute too, I especially adore all of the glitter on the soaps and on the bath bombs.

So far I have used one of the cupcake bath bombs, one of the kiss me clean soaps and partially used one of the Hello Kitty soaps. The soaps lather up so well and leave skin feeling thoroughly moisturised!! The cupcake bath bomb was so much fun, it actually fizzed up really fast unlike Lush's bath bombs.

The postage was awesome.... four days from New York to the UK - first class dispatch service!!

I love how Mel individually wrapped the soaps and put the little ribbons on, they're so pretty girl.

Definitely check out Mel's Soap Bar, it's my new favourite alternative to LUSH brought straight to you from one of YouTube's top Beauty Gurus.

Peace & Love

RIP to my LBD.

New York haul

Hey dolls,

Hope you're all fabulous and enjoying the last of the weekend.

Just thought I'd do a blog on some items I purchased in New York, I had such an AMAZING time so much so I'm looking in to moving out there (any hints and tips on how to do so then please share)!!

This money has been saved up over time and I throughly enjoyed window shopping on 5th Avenue and hip hopping over to Times Square to see all of the twinkling adverts.

I definitely left my heart in New York City...

From L-R: I <3 New York photo album, MAC NW20 Studio Fix Fluid & pump, Duo Adhesive, iPod Touch, YSL Rouge Volupte no7 in Pink Lingerie l/s, MAC Please Me l/s, Ring from Forever 21, Juicy Couture original 100ml/3.4oz and of course Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara.

This gorgeous top I bought from Forever 21 in Times Square for $19.80 (good value, right). I'm going to pair it with some skinny jeans and peep toe heels.

Now, last but not least; this little beauty I just had to have. The necklace has a Poodle, an Apricot Rose and the Eiffel Tower along with a pearl on it - the reason this is so special to me is I lost my baby poodle in January who was just like a real life baby to me. She was the cutest thing. Also, she was unique because she was an Apricot poodle and they're not too common, so to see something Apricot along with a cutsey poodle it just had to be mine.

This was also from Forever 21, it cost $5.80

Hope you enjoyed my little haul girlies

In the mood for nude??

Hello poppets...

Just thought I'd do a post on my 3 fave go to nude lipsticks. Now, I have the biggest complex ever about my lips - they're so thin, and deflated so apologies in advance for the grotesque pouting pics!

L-R: Gosh Darling, MAC Close to Real, MAC Myth

L-R: Myth, C2R, Darling

Gosh Darling

MAC Close to Real (lustre finish)

MAC Myth (satin finish)

My favourite of the three is Close to Real which I think has sadly been discontinued (correct me if I'm wrong), coming in at a close 2nd is MAC's Myth... if only the two merged and had a baby it'd be the PERFECT nude! I wish Close to Real was a satin finish as they have a much creamier texture whereas lustres are a bit too opaque for my liking.

Happy pouting
