Something Graceful from GOSSARD

Everytime you have a bad day, or you simply just want to boost your confidence, it's nice to get yourself some hot piece of lingerie! I've been in love with one certain piece from Gossard ever since I seen it on their website. This beautiful "Graceful" strapless slip caught my eye instantly! I'm really pleased that I can review it for you, today! I already have 2 Gossard reviews on my blog. Can't get enough of this brand!
 Both pieces, slip and a thong are as feminine as they could get! Satin fabric, beautiful floral print and navy lace makes a perfect combination. The slip fits so good on the body, showing beautiful curves and siluette! Every girl would feel beautiful wearing this dreamy set!

Matching Dune bags!

      In today's post I wanted to show my newest buy! A black Dune handbag that I bought last week. It matches my other dune bag, which is identical to the one I've bought, but it's white. So, now I have twin Dune bags! I got both of them on sale! It was a big sale, actually! The white one costed me £32, and it was down from £70 (!!) and the black one, I got for only £26! Oh, how I love a good sale! These two bags came with a shoulder strap, but I never use them, as I like to carry bags in my hand, so I've lost the white one somewhere, but I still have a black one, so I can show you. These bags are really stunning, they have gold details including a gold lock in the front, with the brand's name on it. These two bags are almost identical, the only difference is the colour...obviously and also the black one is smooth and the white one is textured. They have two pockets inside, which I just couldn't take a nice picture of, with my camera. One of the pockets is with a zip, and one is  open. There's enough space to fit everything in. I could have this bag in every colour!
    I'm a big fan of bowling bags, I never really buy any other types as I just find these ones, easier to carry around and I can fit everything in them, better than in a flat bag. Some of the really nice bags like that can be really pricey, that's why I like to pop in the shop when I know they have a sale, or when I see a nice bag, I often wait for it to go on I know, it probably will, and I don't like to waste money. Unfortunately, I can't give you the link to these bags in Dune's online shop as they're sold out not, but you might find the black one in the shop. You probably won't find the white one anywhere as It's from last year.  
   So, hat's the bag I've bought last week and the white one...which I think is my favourite. I haven't done posts like that before, so I hope you like it.

The One Fluid Blusher | Makeup Revolution

            In today's post I'm going to tell you why this one product made me a happy girl! I've wanted to try anything from Makeup Revolution for a long time now, I've also really wanted to try one of the liquid blushers that many companies sell. So yes, the blusher that I'm showing you today, made me very happy indeed, as it's both...from the brand I really wanted to try and also that it's a liquid blusher.
First of all, I have to say that I was really shocked by the price of this. "The One Fluid Blusher" costs only £3.00! I really thought it would be more expensive, but hey...I like prices like that!
            As I've never tried liquid blushers before, I had no idea what exactly it's going to look like on cheeks, how pigmented it will be, if it's going to be anything like Benefit's Cha Cha tint etc. I should mention, that I got one in shade "Rush Me" which is a beautiful coral colour. It's a really pigmented colour, and the blush feels so nice when I apply it on my skin. I like to dab it on my cheeks with my fingers, instead of using a brush. I just find this way easier. It spreads really easily so, even if you apply it with your fingers, like me, you won't see any uneven lines on your cheeks. It will look and feel super smooth. It also won't leave any stains on your fingers, like some lip & cheek stains would do. This blusher is fantastic as you can build it up. If 1 layer isn't enough for you then you can easily add another one on. On the bottom picture that I uploaded, you can see how it looks like, blended in, in layers. One layer on the right, and two layers on the left. I think that for me, applying one layer is enough, as I think that the colour of two layers might be a bit too strong. 

            I'm really happy with this blusher! I couldn't love it more, it is such a bargain!

     Nip+Fab has been on my "brands to try" list for a long time. I'm really pleased that I finally have a chance to try 2 of their products which are from the Glycolic Fix collection. 

     The first one is the Glycolic Fix Pads which come in a very handy, medium size pot. These pre-soaked in exfoliating glycol acid pads, are great for people who don't like to take too much time applying their skincare products and using exfoliating face products that needs to be applied and then rinsed with water, as all you need to do using these pads, is take 1 of them and wipe your whole face and neck with it. The pad might seem small but it's enough to cover your skin on those areas. I usually use one, but sometimes when I feel like my skin needs a bit more of pampering, then I will use 2. They're thin and feel soft on skin. They're also scented. Some people like their face beauty products to be fragrance free, but this scent is really not so strong so it might not be an issue for those people, so give it a try. 
I have noticed that they've really brightened my skin and make it look more awake. I haven't noticed a huge difference, but my skin definitely feels better than before and looks more radiant. 

    The next product is the Glycolic Instant Fix Mask. This mask comes in a form of a transparent gel in a medium size tube and smells divine! It's a pretty strong citrus scent. I love a nice scented mask so I can enjoy the scent while using it. Using it is just like using any other mask. Just apply a thing layer on your face, wait 10 minutes and then rinse it. It works really good! It leaves my skin feeling so refreshed!  You might not see a big difference the first time you use this product, but if you use it a few more times then the results will be really good. It moisturises the skin really well and it also suppose to reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I don't have a lot of them...yet, but if some of you do, then if should work good on that. Also, for those of you who have oily skin, just like me, then using this product will reduce shine and make the skin tone more ever.  This product does so much good to the skin and makes your skin look very healthy! If you're looking for a nice mask, then this one is the one to try.

GOSSARD - Super Smooth Set

       In my last post, I blogged about a stunning pink set from the new Gossard collection. Today I have yet another set to show from this fantastic brand. Many girls' own "nightmare bras" which are the ones with awkward and at times, painful wires, that often come out of your bra, and hurt your body. The bra from the Super Smooth set that I'm showing you today is definitely not one of those bras as its wireless. It's super comfortable and as it's wireless, it fits and adapts to your body so much better. It gives such a big support to your assets and keeps them in place. I often have a problem with bras, where I have to fix them all the time, and change the strap lengths, place what I need to, back in a cup, but this bra keeps everything in it's place, and it doesn't move a lot either. 

     The Super Smooth Set is nude with a gorgeous, floral lace and beautiful gold details, therefore it looks very feminine and classic. It's definitely a must have bra! If you go on the Gossard website then you will also find this set in a few different colours and prints. This bra is really fantastic at pushing your assets up and together and making your cleavage look really nice and flattering. It doesn't have detachable straps but if you're looking for one like that, then check out my latest post where I've reviewed strapless set from this brand! I really wanted to show you not only how this bra looks like but also how nice it fits on your body, so I uploaded a picture of me wearing it, where you can see that.

There's also matching short that comes in with this set, which is very soft, feminine and comfortable. I feel very nice wearing it, You can buy the short and bra separately if you don't want to get the whole set. 

     The price of this set isn't the cheapest, but it's so worth the money as it looks gorgeous and the quality of it is really impressive. Their lingerie never disappoints! The more sets I try, the more I'm in love with the brand. I could not recommend them enough!

Super Smooth Short - £14.00

GOSSARD - Valentine's Day lingerie

         It's Valentine's Day soon, and I think that wether you are in a relationship or not, it's great to treat yourself sometimes and maybe invest in a nice lingerie set. My current lingerie brand that I'm obsessed with, is called Gossard, which I have that gorgeous pink lingerie set from. It's called "Irresistible" and it's in a very hot pink colour! It's one of Gossard's new collections. It is a high quality set, made with a very soft fabric, a stunning lace, gold details and a little bow on top. 
         You can wear the bra with or without the straps as they're detachable. The bra also has a wide band which gives more support, especially if you wear it without straps. It's really comfortable and I feel really good in it! The set comes with either shorts or thongs. I got both and they're really comfortable. They have lace on the front and full full fabric on the back. They're super pretty and feminine. I really could not be more in love with this set! If you have a girlfriend who you'd love to treat or just to treat yourself, then go for it! You won't regret it! They have a lot of collections, so you can check them out here. They're all very gorgeous and luxurious! I have my eye on a lot of them, and I'm probably gonna be buying some of them, soon! 
P.S. Gossard also sells dreamy swimwear! Have a look at them as well. 
         If you'd love to know more about Gossard and see latest news and collections then give them a follow on twitter! (@GossardUK)

What I got for Valentine's Day! Pt. 2 | Gifts & Pieces

       In my previous post, I shown you my early Valentine's Day presents that Sam bought me from LUSH. Today I'm showing you the rest of my presents, which are from my favourite shop at the moment! It's called Gifts & Pieces and it's the most adorable shop ever! I could buy every single item from that shop if I could. It's easy for Sam to buy me presents from that shop as I will love anything from it, everything is so gorgeous. You need to check it out!
      So, the first thing is something I wanted to get for ages. I've seen a lot cute pencils lately with adorable words or quotes on them. In Gifts & Pieces shop, you will find  6 different "quote pencil sets" , which are in pink, white and black colours. There are 4 pencils in each set and cost only £6, so that's bargain! The set of pencils I got are pink (thank Gosh, Sam chose this one) with "Paris is always a good idea" on it. How cute is that?! I love everything about those pencils. The packing is so cute as well. As some of you may know I love to draw so I will use them a lot, for sure! I think these pencils would make a great Birthday/Valentine's Day/Christmas present idea especially for people who love to write or draw.
    The next thing I got, is a gorgeous candle from Bomb Cosmetics! I'm the biggest fan of fruity candles, that's why I really love this one. It's called "Very Berry" which smells like berry sweets. It contains red fruits, raspberries, grapes, blueberry and pears. It also contains vanilla, caramel, black pepper and Lemongrass oils. It smells divine, but it also looks gorgeous! It comes in a gold tin, and pink wrapping. It's a pink candle, with 4 red, love hearts on top of it, which look so delicious, I could  just pick it up and eat it! This candle is a perfect present for Valentine's Day! I could not love it any more! 
     Last but not least, is a pretty little storage box with "Everything Starts With a Dream" quote on it. It's my life motto! I love dreams. I have so many of them and I dream all the time, and my girlfriend knows me so well, she thought that this would be a perfect present for me! I really love it, but I'm not sure yet of what I'm going to put in it. I'm a little girl at heart so things like that always cheer me up and make me happy! 

And this is all I got for Valentine's Day :) Hope you enjoyed my post.

What I got for Valentine's Day! Pt. 1 | LUSH

         It's Valentine's Day next week, and me and my Girlfriend always get each other some nice stuff for this occasion. We bought presents for each other about a week ago, and we're very inpatient and bad at keeping secrets, so we decided to exchange our little presents yesterday! She got me gifts from two shops, so I'm doing 2 separate blog posts about them. In Today's post I'm showing you what she got me from LUSH! All these products (if I'm right) are from the Valentine's Day collection! I've actually never had anything from this shop. Everytime I'm in Lush in Liverpool, there are big queues to the checkout, and I really don't want to wait half an hour to buy 2 things. I could do it online, but I'd like to smell and touch it...before I buy it :)
       The first product is the Unicorn Horn! I love everything thats bright and colourful so I really love the look of this bubble bar It looks like a glittery unicorn horn, with lots of colours on it, and many colourful stars which will float in your bath once it's melted. Unfortunately, something must've happened to mine as I got it with only like 3 stars on it. Most of them probably fell off somewhere in the box. I really can't to wait to use it!
      This next bubble bar, I'm saving to use on Valentine's Day. It's the Heart Throb, which is made of 2 super bright red hearts and the most gorgeous gold glitter in the middle. It looks absolutely stunning! I'm a bit worried about the glitter, as I hope I'm not gonna be full of it when I get out of the bath. Hopefully it's gonna melt away. From the little video on Lush website, I seen that it's going to turn the water in the prettiest red colour! I think it's perfect to have a lovely bath with this bubble bar, on the Valentine's Day morning, and I'm sure that would put everyone in a romantic mood for the whole day. 
        Another red product is this gorgeous Cupid's Love soap! I'm really excited to try it as I've never had a soap like that. It's red with big white hearts inside, which look super pretty! I'm probably never gonna be back to using a normal hand wash after using this soap! I really love, as it's a soap so it's not as fragile as the bath bombs I got. 
       I left my favourite one to last! I think that if you really want to get something from this collection, then this would be the main thing you need! It is a huge, Barbie pink, heart shaped Love Locket with the yellow lock in the middle! It also has a little surprise inside. I'm not sure what that is yet, but I really just want to smash it and look inside of it, but I'm going to save it for when I have a bath! I'm going to guess though and say that there's probably a yellow key to that lock! What else could it be?! I hope I'm right. This bath bomb is so big, that's you can use it for 2 baths. It's just the pretties thing I've ever seen. I'm sure I will feel bad melting it in a bath. Wish I could just put it on the shelf in my bedroom or bathroom so it looks cute! I wanted to give you link to this bath bomb, but I think it's sold out on the Lush website. I'm not the only one loving it so much then. 

Cupid's Love - £4.25
Love Locket - £6.95

    So those were the LUSH products that Sam's bought for me!! I really can't wait to use them all! In the next blog post, I'm going to show you what else I got from Sam, from my favourite shop at the moment.

PROTO-COL Miracle Balm | Review

             My skin tend to get really dry in the winter, that's why I love to use a lot of different moisturisers and balms to keep my skin hydrated and moisturised. One product that I have been really loving lately is a Miracle Balm from Proto-Col.
       Proto-Col is a British brand that's been on the market for 10 years and is well known for their collagen hydrolysate technology. They have quite a big range of skincare products, cosmetics and nutrition.
      The balm I'm reviewing today comes in a 20ml glass pot. It contains beeswax and orange oil which makes it smell super sweet. It works perfectly on dry skin on elbows, heels, lips as well as on burns, bites and stings. I've been using it the most on my lips as they can be really chapped when it's cold. I also like to use it on my elbows, feet and knuckles. It's a light and non-greasy balm and you have massage a small amount of this balm into the skin. As it's really light, I tend to use more than I should, as it's barely visible on my skin when I apply it and I feel like I don't apply enough. That's why I apply just a little bit more and it really does hydrates my skin, but especially my lips. It makes the areas of my skin that's been dry before, very smooth. It feels so nice on my skin. I always keep it on my night table so it's always out when I need it. I like it that much, that I wish I had two so I could keep the other one in my bag and use it when I'm out.

Have a cuppa in style | Bombay Duck London

           Hello, cuppa lovers! Lately, I've been seeing many online shops selling this one gorgeous China mug, that I fell in love with instantly. The picture of it kept popping on my timeline on Twitter and the more often I seen it, the more I wanted to get it. I wanted to buy it for weeks. I finally bought it a few days ago. 
      It's a mug with an alphabet letter on it. Different letters have different polka dot colours on the mug (lilac, aqua or fuchsia). I was happy that my letter, which is K, has fuchsia polka dots on it. It looks really adorable. I really love the shape of it and the combination of gold, white and pink put together. 
    The letter, the edges and the handle of this mug are gold so it looks very nice and elegant on the white mug. It comes in a beautiful, pink, round gift box, that's why I think it would make the most perfect birthday present, as well as Valentine's Day present etc. I'd love to be given one myself, but I decided to treat myself with it instead. 
I got it from Bombay Duck London, but there's many other stores that sell it as well. 
     Do you know when you adore some stores so much, you wish you could buy everything from it? This store is just like that. Check it out, you might fall in love with it, just like I did. 
    The mug itself costs £9.95 yet you have to pay £3.95 for the standard delivery or £9.50 for the next day delivery which is a bit ridiculous. I got it with the standard delivery, making it over £13. I think it's a bit pricey for one mug, but it's absolutely gorgeous, so it's worth it.

 Alphabet Spotty Mug - £9.95 

Right, I'm off to enjoy a nice cup of coffee in this lovely mug :)

Collection- Lip Butters Range

        The best way to cheer ourselves up during this, well not the best and not so colourful weather is to put a nice lipstick on! I'm one of those girls who feel instantly better when I'm wearing a nice lipstick!
         Lately, I've been loving these 4 lipsticks from Lip Butter range from Collection. I'm a huge fan of lip crayons, and there are quite a lot of them on the market right now. A lot of them are very pricey but if you would like to try affordable and good quality ones then you should definitely go of the ones that I'm reviewing today. 
           In this range you can find 2 nude colour ones and 2 bold ones. My OCD tells me to start from number 1-4 but I decided to review them by shades, from lightest to the darkest one, so I'm going to start with the lightest one.
           As you can see from the pictures, nude lipsticks are my favourite and I used these ones a lot. The lightest lipstick in this range is number 2 and it's in shade "Cappuccino". It has looks like a light brown colour but it's beige on lips. I think it's such a great colours with pink under tones. I love using this colour when I go for darker eye makeup. 
         Another nude is number 3 in "Vintage Rose". If you do swatches on hands than it might look very bright and bold, that's why I'm always skeptical about doing swatches on hands, yet I did them as the colours look so nice! (P.S. In my opinion, the best way to do swatches is to apply lipstick on your finger tips as it's the same colour as your lips). This colour is probably my favourite colour from this range. If I want to put a lipstick on but I don't want to go for anything bright, then this shade is perfect. It gives your lips some colour, yet looks so natural. It's a gorgeous peachy shade, and looks very subtle on lips. 
       Time to talk about (as I call them) the bolds! One of them is a super bright pink, number 1 in "Popping Pink"! I absolutely love pink lipsticks but I don't wear them often enough. I really love this colour and any pink lipsticks really, but I'm often not brave enough to wear them...especially in the winter time, that's why I'm keeping this one for summer. It's a neony colour, super bright and very pigmented. If you don't want very bright lips then you can pop a bit of this lip butter on, and just smudge it all of over lips. This will give you some colour but it won't look extremely bright.
        Last, but not least is the darkest shade number 4 in "Perfectly Plum". It's a dark plum lipstick. I love plum lipsticks more than red ones, so If I want to look very elegant and to wear a bold lipstick, I usually go for plums. It's actually more of a cherry plum than purple. Its such a warm colour. I think it would look great on any skin tone. Every girl can rock this colour! This is yet another bold lipstick that I don't wear often enough. I tend to wear them for special occasions. 
        Each of these lip butters cost only £2.50 and you can buy them here! Such a huge bargain for such good quality and long lasting lipsticks. The whole range would cost you only £10.00, which is less than you would pay for 1 from a different brand. 

Hope you enjoyed my review! 
Don't forget to follow me and my blog on social media :)
