Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara Review

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara

You will have seen this mascara if you read my May Glossybox post and here is my review of it! Fairy lashes is Jelly Pong Pong's first ever mascara. It's water resistant and boasts that it will make your eyelashes "thicker and curvier while allowing them to be spectacularly soft and light!" Sounds like that would be perfect for summer!

Wednesday Wishlist #3 - Debra Chigwell

Debra Chigwell wish list

This week’s Wednesday wishlist is definitely a WISHlist as I have fallen in love with some gorgeous clothes that are out of my price range! Never mind, I can still look! Today’s picks are from Debra Chigwell, a little boutique store in Essex, but also has a website which is where I found these beauties! They have celebrity fans including Frankie Essex, who has already tweeted that she will be wearing something from Debra Chigwell on Celebrity Juice tomorrow! (eyes peeled for that one ladies!)

May Glossybox - Happy 2nd Birthday!

May Glossybox

Glossybox is 2 years old, and as they weren't lying when they said we would be getting the presents. Not only was my box filled with lovely goodies, but it was gorgeously presented! This is a pretty special box!

I am loving this month's neon pink ribbon, followed by the bright orange paper shreddings for my goodies to nestle in! Lovely effort at presentation this month Glossybox, thumbs up!

Liebster Award

So I had received a few mails/tweets about this Liebster Award post that is going around, and had no idea what it was all about. Now I've sat down and been able to read through all the posts about it, it looks like so much fun! The whole idea is to share a bit about yourself, along with your favourite bloggers. That way your readers (aka, you guys!) can find more amazing blogs to read!

Here are a few of the gorgeous girlies who nominated me:

Question mark of flowers

I saw this post on Kayleigh's blog (Couture Girl) and thought I'd give it a go myself! It is a series of would you rather questions! Scanning through, some of them look like hard choices! But here are my answers!!

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

The lovely people at Sparkly Nails sent me some gorgeous nail art products and I was so pleased with them, I just had to tell you about them! I received the Nail Dotting Tool & 3 nail paints; white, pink & teal.

I am always playing around with my nails, using different polishes etc, but don't actually have any specific nail art tools or paints, until now!

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Cream Review

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Cream

Ah, I love a hand cream! I have so many it's unbelievable. I received the Crabtree & Evelyn Ultra-moisturising hand therapy from their Somerset Meadow hand care collection in my April Glossy Box, and I wasn't disappointed!

The packaging is a lovely shade of yellow, very apt for spring. It's the type of tube that you are able to roll up as you come to the end of so you can get as much as possible out of it. Amazing!
