Dead Sea Spa Magik Silky Smooth Body Lotion review

Dead Sea Spa Magik Silky Smooth Body Lotion

Dead Sea Spa Magik isn't a brand I had ever used before receiving the Silky Smooth Body lotion in the July Birchbox.

After seeing the quality of the other products in my Birchbox, I got the impression it would be of the same high standard as the other brands.

Sleek MakeUP Pout Paint Review and Swatches

Sleek pout paint
Time for another July Glossybox product review. This time I am taking a look at Pout Paint by Sleek MakeUp.

The idea with these lip paints, is that you can wear each colour individually, but also, mix together to create fab new colours that have exactly the same impact and staying power!

Sounds like mixing and matching will be fun!

VitaBella Anti-Ageing Face Mask Review

VitaBella Anti-Ageing Face Mask

Inside my July Birchbox came a unique little product. I've never used anything similar so was quite excited about trying it out! The VitaBella Anti-Ageing face mask came in a cute little bag, with a little bottle of complex and the mask, which kind of looks like an oversized paracetamol!

Color Club 'Reign in Spain' Nail Varnish

Color Club 'Reign in Spain' Nail Varnish

During the summer, I love having bright neon colours on my nails and thanks to my lovely friend Nat (who also was kind enough to donate a July Birchbox), I have managed to get my hands on the gorgeous Color Club Nail Varnish - Reign in Spain.

July Birchbox

My lovely friend Nat has very kindly donated her July Birchbox so I can have a peek at all the products and tell you lovelies all about it!

As a subscriber to Glossybox (Check out my lasts post – July Glossybox), I did wonder what the differences between the two boxes would be. Having something to compare the Birchbox to could make my opinion sway one way or another.

So here is the July 2013 Birchbox!

July Glossybox

July Glossybox

So, after the disappointment of my June glossybox, I had my fingers crossed for the July box to make up for it. After having a couple of problems with actually getting it delivered (the delivery driver barely gave me 5 seconds to get to the door before getting back in his van – didn’t even leave a ‘we tried to deliver’ slip!), it finally arrived.

Everybody needs a new holiday handbag! One that's big enough to fit all your beachy bits and bobs in, while still staying stylish! I've been having a look at a  few and have picked out my favourites to show you!

What's even better, is each of these bags are less than £20! So now you have no excuse!

Lanzarote 2013 - The most memorable holiday of my life.

Lanzarote

First, let me start this post by apologising for the lack of new content on my blog in the past week. I was obviously away on holiday and had a few scheduled posts, but when you've finished reading this, you'll understand why I have been so busy!

I was desperate for a holiday this year, but knew we were really going to struggle to pull together enough money. Luckily, after much time and research, I managed to book the trip for myself and my boyfriend to Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote. In total we paid just over £1000, including our spending money, flights, hotel and transfers. Bargain!

We flew on Thursday 4th July, and landed at 4pm. Little did I know at the time, although we only had the evening on the first day, not a lot would top what was about to happen!

Wednesday Wishlist #7 - Swimwear Special

Swimwear wish lisr
At some point this summer, you are going to have to get your swimmers on for a trip to the beach, a holiday or a sunbathing session, so you might as well make sure you are looking super stylish!

These are some of my favourite swimsuits and bikinis about the the moment!

Beauty Blogger Tag Post

I saw this post on My Beauty Junction, which is a blog I regularly read, and although I haven’t been tagged in one, I decided I’d like to post the Beauty Blogger tag and pass it on to some lovely beauty bloggers myself!

So here goes!

Guest Post - Summer Beauty Routine by I Am The Makeup Junkie

A guest post from Marie at I am the makeup junkie

Summer Beauty Routine: A Few Items To Make It Through The Heat!

Summer. All year long we wait for the heat. Longing to go out in little more than a tank top and short shorts. We do have to make sure that our beauty routine is updated so that our skin doesn’t suffer from the strong summer sun, harsh sand we may encounter on vacation and the heat that melts our makeup. What are the essential items in a blockbuster beauty bag?

To change up our summer beauty, we need to lighten up our products. That means wearing fewer products and making sure the ones we use are specifically made for long wear, swimming, perspiring and the heat. In the list below are just a few products that I have found work really well in all of these situations.

DIY Waxing Tips for Smooth Summer Skin

DIY home waxing tips

Silky smooth skin is a must for summer hols. After all, you don’t want to be strutting around in your bikini with hairy legs or whatever!

Waxing isn’t everyone’s favourite beauty treatment because, let’s face it, it’s not exactly the most relaxing... And if you’re like me and you would rather spend your hard earned pennies on some sexy holiday outfits, then you’ll find yourself tasked with home hair removal, which sounds even more unappealing than the trip to the salon.

I trained as a beauty therapist, which included waxing, but even with my experience, waxing myself always becomes a bit of a task and I try to avoid it, until it is holiday time!

I’ve pieced together a few helpful hints if you are planning some DIY waxing!
