Specs Post Review

On twitter I found out that Specs Post which is an online glasses company who dispense the perfect glasses from the comfort of your own home how cool is that? If that isn't enough to convince you Specs Post do a service where you can get a selection of glasses of your choice sent to your home for you to try, that way you can decide on the perfect frames and there are plenty to choose from, I think it's great because it gives you plenty of time to ask for your family and friends opinion on them and they can help you decide! The best part about it all is the glasses are MUCH cheaper than you can get on the high street and you can get designer frames! I wear glasses for concentration and although I do have a pair, I love idea of having a choice so when offered the chance to try three pairs of my choice I went for a few different ones, I picked a pair similar to what I already have but a different colour, some gorgeous frames which are like nothing I've ever seen before and a pair of gorgeous sunnies! Thanks to Glyn T Jones Photography and I got some pictures taken of me wearing the frames and I'd love your help in deciding which of the frames to choose?

John Freida Frizz Ease!


Recently I was contacted in regards to trying some John Frieda products, for those of you who haven't heard of a John Freida (damn where have you been?!) they make a huge range of fantastic hair products which are available to buy from your local boots store or online here I have always been a big fan, I use their hair dyes and have used a couple of their different shampoos over the last few years. When I received the package it had the following products in: dream curls, and the frizz ease Shampoo and Conditioner, and although I don't actually curl my hair I used all of the products and found my hair in a much better state, my hair always feels dead and limp and I found after using the shampoo and conditioner for a few weeks my hair felt more live like and soft which was much more manageable when it came to styling my hair, if you need something to nourish your hair I'd recommend picking it up for yourself. When it comes to using a new product or creating a new hair style I often find that Youtube is the best place to look with girls just like me, and they can show me a new look and how to break it down. When looking around on how to control Frizzy hair.

Lush| Angels on bare skin & ocean salt!


 I recently organized a bloggers meet up and as part of that meet I organized for the girls and I to visit Birmingham Lush, where we got a tour of the shop and taught how to make a lovely lush face mask, when we were leaving the store we got given a goody bag each, which I think was so lovely of Lush as I wasn't expecting anything and in this goody bag there were full pots of Ocean Salt & Angels on bare skin and those of you who don't know what they are, Angels on bare skin is a body and face cleanser and Ocean Salt is a face and body scrub which is exactly what my face needs at the moment! 

Ocean Salt
This is just what my face needs at the moment, it looks like moisturizer with bits of sherbet in, which in a strange way made it even more appealing to me? You need to make your face damp before applying, then apply all over your face. What Ocean salt actually does is remove all of the dead skin and then the avocado butter leaves your face feeling soft, it really does! It does make your face a little sore but that is just getting rid of all the dead skin, it feels so amazing afterwards! 

Angels on bare skin
I have heard so many amazing things about this product, when I mentioned during the #bbloggers chat that I keep breaking out in spots around 6 people recommended it to me, I was so happy when it was in the goody bag, you take a piece of the cleanser and put in the palm of your hand, add water then it makes a paste which you cover your face in, and then wash off with warm water, it definitely did my face the world of good, made me spots look a lot less angry and left my face glowing, if you are yet to try this product I recommend you get down to your local lush and pick up a pot!

MUA Luxe Velvet Lips




MUA is a brand is perfect for people on a budget but still achieves the amazing quality of the high end products, I was a bit hesitant when it came to MUA luxe velvet lips, as it looks just like a lip gloss and I couldn't understand what the hype was about, then I tried them it isn't like a lip gloss at all in fact it is like the complete opposite. You apply the velvet Lips just like a lip gloss, leave it for a few minutes and it dries and looks just like a matte lipstick, and it lasts all day, and it resistant to drinks! The colours are so amazing so bright, I chose the shaded Criminal but I will definitely be going back for some others. I'd be expect them to be a good £6-8 but they are just £3, MUA have definitely outdone themselves again!  

Have you tried any of the MUA Luxe Range?




MAC Lipstick- Dangerous.

After receiving a MAC lipstick for my birthday back in January I have been hooked on MAC lipsticks although they are little pricer than the lipsticks you buy in boots they are worth every penny, when finding out Debenhams have 10% off everything I decided to treat myself to a lipstick I had my eye on for ages, which was Dangerous. I am a big fan of red lipsticks I think they look very classic and effortless. Dangerous is more a bright red which suits me fine, the lipstick goes on so smoothly and smells fabulous, I'm not the only one who loves the smell right? The lipstick itself lasted on my lips for an entire day, even survived food and drink, bonus! If you are yet to treat yourself to a product by MAC do it, you won't regret it.

What are you favorite MAC lipsticks?

#BirminghamBloggersMeet14

Hi lovelies, some of you may know that I organized a bloggers meet up which took place over the weekend, which I think went really well and thank you if you attending and I am hoping to organize another one at some point in the summer but I'll probably stick to a smaller scale as this one was super stressful! I hope everyone who came enjoyed it, and thank you to all of the lovely companies who provided items for the goody bags! So what actually happened on the day of the meet I hear you ask? Firstly I decided to start with some shopping we started at Selfridges and did a look around the beauty halls before splitting into smaller groups, I spent the majority of the day with Siobhan who is so lovely and bubbly and as she is going to Florida in May she spent the day shopping for essentials!

After the shopping, we headed to Birmingham lush and got a talk and a tour from the lovely ladies who taught us how to make a face mask and then we were shown how to make the "fluffy dragon" by another Lush assistant which smelt gorgeous! Lush also gave us goody bags each which I thought was so lovely of them! Finally, we headed to Ming Moon and I booked out the VIP so we could get to know each other on a better level and also get a talk from Chris & Kirsty (who you may of seen on this series of Take me out) who were talking about a company called Motives which was great! Then we ended the day with food and a raffle with all the money going to Rethink mental health! I hope everyone had as much of an amazing day, but I am glad it is finally over as I've been stressing since October!
