GlossyBox January Valentine's Edition





My Glossy Box arrived yesterday and I must say I was very impressed when I opened the box, as you can all see instead of the usual dusty pink the box is bright pink for the valentine’s edition. Love it!

This month’s box contains;

EYEKO Skinny Eyeliner
ORLY Nail Polish
WELEDA One Step Cleanser & Toner
FAB Gentle Body Wash
MURAD Skin Perfecting Primer – Dewy finish

I’m looking forward to trying the body wash and primer and I really like the Eyeko packaging for the skinny liner. Overall an interesting line up of products, I particularly enjoyed the glossybox sweet yum!

I have seen through blog trolling that some people received Clarin day and night cream which I think I would have preferred a lot more but still I’m going to enjoy trialling and testing all of this months GlossyBox products. Maybe a bit too much Skincare products this month for my liking...

What did you get in your GlossyBox this month?

Spring Equinox is my favourite trend from Topshop Spring Summer Collection, I love the vintage inspired comtempory look, a bit folky. All the pieces in this collection are so pretty and flowing. And I need most of these pieces in my life, anyone feeling generous ?

Chambord Loves Style


So I was approached on Tuesday to take part in the Chambord Love Style competition whereby the company took photos of their favourite style outfits and posted them onto their facebook page. I said I would put the link onto my blog yesterday but as I was having trouble finding out whether the competition was uploaded yet (as I don't have facebook) I didn't want to post the link and there not be anything on there.

Anyway so the competition was for favourite style of birmingham, where you have to get all your friends and family members on facebook have to 'Like'/ Comment you picture, the person with the most 'likes'/comments wins ! (I think) The competitions were also taken part in Manchester and London.

The link to Chambord facebook page is   Facebook.com/chamborduk.
And if you click onto birmingham style you'll see a picture of me :) I'm wearing the dress that's in the outfit post Daisy All Over. And I would really appricate it if any one and every one could vote, even if not for me but for the persons style you like the most.

Enjoy !

Today started off as not a very good day for me as I've found it extremely difficult to wake up, and did not want to get out of bed this morning. But as they day went on and towards the afternoon when I went to do a bit of shopping something quite exciting happened !

I was approached in town by a company called Chambord, to take part in their street style competition and immediately accepted as I've never had the opportunity to do anything like this before. I actually felt very privaledge ! So Bish Bash Bosh they took my photo and the pictures go live tomorrow, for the competition to win a ChloĆ© handbag. (So exciting)

As soon as the photo's go live tomorrow for the competition I will post the link so everybody can see all the different street styles and vote for your favourite. I will also link the post to this post as this is what I was wearing.

Have you taken part in any competitions recently ? Or won any competitions ? let me know.

My New Years Resolutions !


Hi everyone, I hope you had an amazing New Years and a Happy Belated Christmas to All!
I’ve literally not long came home from my trip away for the Christmas period so I do apologies for the lack of blogging in the last few weeks.

I always get asked on New Years what’s your new years resolutions and I’ve never really sat down made any as I’ve always doubted I’d ever stick to them, but I read recently that people who do make practical new years resolutions are more likely to achieve there goals than those who don’t, so I thought why not !

My New Years Resolutions for 2012 are;

  1. Eat A Balanced Diet
I know it’s easier said than done but I think my skin and my body would really benefit from more fruit and veg in my life, rather than not eating breakfast and having Mc Donald’s and snacks to cure my hunger.

  1. Do My Uni Work ASAP.
I always find something more interesting and entertaining to do than sit down and actually finish uni work. I must find the motivation. The more organised I am with my deadlines the easier I will find it to balance work and entertaining my personal life.

3.    Pass My Driving Test

I’ve been learning to drive on and off for about 3 years. I’ve recently started my driving lesson again and I definitely want to have passed my test by the end of the year. I have a strong hatred to public transport and have just had enough!

  1. Blog More and Regularly
I always use university as an excuse for not blogging but I absolutely love it. I would love blog more often and hopefully provide more content for my followers and new followers to come also, have the opportunity to get to know more bloggers.

  1. Save some money and move out
My boyfriend and I have being living together with my mom for almost 2 years now and we would really like to find our own place and save a bit of extra cash.

So those are my 5 resolutions, please leave comments on any ideas that will help me to achieve these.

And what are your New Years resolutions for 2012? Comment and let me know?
