Summer is starting!


You gotta love the shades! ;)
As featured in OOTD

You gotta love summer! Sun, tan, Iced drinks, Ice cream, BBQ's, Parties-you get the idea!






Then again, there's always that downside, (Note the Umbrella)
It was sunny when this was taken, but the weather man failed to be correct!

Have good summer guys!

An Update On Me...

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the lack of blogging. I haven't had that much time on my hands but now it's Easter holidays (Hoorah!) I thought I'd tell you what's been going on :)

Since it's been coming up to the end of the term, teachers like to give us 'end of term tests' so there's been plenty of homework since they know that no one revises. although I'm only in year 9, I have my first GCSE coming up in May :( It's Science, and I find it quite tricky. I'm in top set, only because 'I have common sense when it comes to guessing the correct answer' I don't know if that's right at all though!

It's also been mothers day and it was my Mum's birthday on Thursday, so we celebrated that :)
I also do Street dance every Tuesday, and have been practising our dance! We're doing it to rudeboy by Rihanna. It's really good, the dance is only about a minute and a half, but it's still good :) My dance teacher is fab and made the whole dance up herself :) Pretty amazing huh? We filmed it and the video is on Facebook so we can all see it. Here's a snapshot: I'm the one in the green vest top, with the straight brown hair :)
..................X................................
X Marks where I am ;)

I hope your all well. Please give me requests for blog posts! Take care,
Sarah xx

I need help!

Help! I can't upload pictures :( Well I can, but Blogspot won't let me move them when I'm writing a post :( They just stay at the top and won't come down!
Please help, first person to help will get a shout-out and a link to their blog! :)

NOTW: Barry M Nail Paint 279 Bright Pink


Hey guys, today I'm supporting the Barry M Nail Paint in 279 Bright pink. It's probably my favourite nail varnish and is the perfect 'barbie' pink colour. It's flattering on any skintone, and makes a cute daywear colour or a rocking night colour :)

I've heard many different reviews on the Nail Paints. some people find them great whilst others say they are hard to apply and that the take a long time to dry. I find them easy to apply but hey do take a little time to dry (I use a hairdryer to help me!) and they go sticky whilst drying and when you touch it to check it's dry, it's very sticky.

I have 4 nail paints, and the colours are highly pigmented and are gorgeus :) i will be expanding my colection believe me ;)

Whats your favourite nail paint?

Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara Review

:( I'm sad. :( Max Factor...What happened? Ok, it's not that bad Maybe a :/ face? On Tuesday when I went Lakeside I was showing my Mum Max Factor's False Lash Effect Mascara (which is still my fave btw!) and noticed that this mascara was on introductory off at £7.99 so I got it.


I'm fairly disapointed and I'll share with you why...

Ok ignore horrific skin :S Yes, it gets in corners as it claims and lengthens. but it's really not that thick.

And when the offer finishes you will be paying £10.99 for only 6.5ml unlike the huge amount of 13.1ml for that price. BIG difference.

Also, if you hold the wand up to the light you can see the purple on the wand, showing not a lot of mascara is actually on the wand.

If you like long lashes which are not thick, get this. But get it before the offer runs out. It's worth it.

My Sknicare routine

Sorry for the lack of posts :( Half term has been about shopping, chilling and sleeping! :D
So I was thinking about doing this post, fairly helpful in some cases, and alot of products I recomend. So maybe you could ask for some reviews? 'Hint Hint' ;) So let's go!

1. Ok I'll start with my face. I shower at night on Sunday-Thursday. (I'll either have a bath or a wash on Friday. It's not acctually that good for you to was so much everyday so on Friday I generally just wash. On Saturday I shower in the morning.

Before I shower on a night, I apply Soap & glory's Clean Mary. I leave it on why I'm in the shower and once dried, I wash off before moisturising my body.

2. Then I'll moisturise my body. I either use soap & Glory's Righteous Butter, or (newly bought) Body shop Mango Body Butter. (I use the small butter, 50ml.)

3. Every-other-day I exfoliate in the shower. (It's not good to do this every day, as it can dry out skin.) I use Soap & Glory's Flake Away. I also use the Soap & Glory Clean On Me shower gel. I love Soap & Glory. It's just amazing and ALL their products smell good :)

4. To moisturise my face I use The Body Shop Vitiman C Skin Reviver. It's expensive yes, and very small. You don't necessarily get results straight away, but after a few days it really works :)

5. To remove Make-up, I use Simple Cleansing Wipes. They're good to use, and gentle on the skin.

6. Once or twice a wek, I use Soap & Glorys Fab Pore Intensive Facial Peel. This helps shrink pores and keeps skin baby soft.

7. On my hands (clearly!) and sometimes my elbows I use Soap & Glorys Hand Food. Smells divine, is fast drying and just utterly gorgeus.

PRODUCTS MENTIONED:

Soap & Glory Clean Mary £6

Soap & Glory The righteous butter Small-£2.50 Big-£10.00

The Body Shop Body Butter (Mango) Small-£5.00 Big-£12.50

Soap & Glorys Flake Away Small-£2.50 Big-£6.50

Soap & Glory's Clean On Me Shower Gel Small-£2.50 Big-£5.00

The Body Shop Vitiman C Skin Reviver £12.50

January Favourites :)

Hey :) I know this is late, but I'm doing it now otherwise I'll never actually do it! And I should start with January right? I've tried to get a variety, but I had to say the things I'm loving this month! :)

Quick Note: Apoligies for the poor quality of photos :S The lighting in my room is shocking! :(

Necklaces:
Ok, I keep my long necklaces in my wardrobe, and I love 'em! They just make an outfit don't they? They go with absolutely everything, and make your figure nicer :)
Soap & Glory Hand Food:
You may have seen this in my Haul, but I can't get enough! I have the small one and the big one. The small one is in my handbag, since the cold weather makes my hands go quite dry :/ This is heaven! Non-greasy, quick drying, very moisturising and smells great - what more could you want?
The full size one costs £4.50 and the mini one is £2.25, a bargain I must say! I got this with 1/3 off, which is still on at Boots! Go now before the offer runs out, you save so much money! With the 1/3 off the full size one is £2.99, a cool saving of £1.51 and the mini one is £1.49, a wicked saving of 76p! That makes it seem a whole lot better! :)
an extra bonus is that you don't need much, and trust me, you really don't need much. That's the only thing I dont like about the big one, too much comes out but the little one is fine :)
If you smell the tube, you can hardly smell it, but once rubbed in your hands it smells really sweet and marshmallow like. Gorgeus!

False Lash Effect Mascara:
Sorry for the dodgy photo :(

Soap & Glory eau de Soap & Glory Formula 2:
So, as you can tell, I'm a huge S&G fan,I love it! This is their perfume, and its gorgues! I'm awful at explaining smells, so I'll leave you to go have a smell in Boots yourself :)
Look how cute the packaging is, and it's not one of those cheap card boxes, its really sturdy :) The bottle is cute, and not too 'extra' as I like to say ;)
I'ts £15.00 from boots, or if like me, you get it in the 1/3 off sale, it's £10.00 :D

Barry M Nail Paints:

£2.95, Boots or Superdrug. Fab-u-lous! :D These are great, last a long time and the colours are cool :) I have 3. and love 'em all. Sorry for bad quality photo :(

(l-r) 279 Bright Pink, 305 Pink Flamingo, 272 Shocking Pink

There's loads of colours and they're really good! Recomend? Defo :)



Thick Socks:

Not the nicest to look at, I know. But they're so warm! Espiecally when Mother Nature can't make up her mind, 'Snow, wind, rain, make it a bit warmer for a day then go back to freezing? I can't decide!' they're perfect :) Espiecally with Uggs, so nicee! :)

So they're my Janruary favourites, questions? Just comment and I WILL get back A.S.A.P
