      Mua heaven and earth palette only £4

      Mua heaven and earth palette is just gorgeous. There are 12 beautiful shades from neutral browns , creams and golds. There are so many shades in this palette that you can create gorgeous looks with.

      All of the eyeshadow are very pigmented and have a lovely texture. They blend in really well and do not have lots of fall out which is great for cheaper quality eyeshadows. A fluffy brush picks them up really well and no shadow is wasted.

      This palette is available online and in superdrug. On ebay the mua palette is around the price of £8 however in superdrug the palette is only £4.

      The packaging isn't the best it is clear so you can see all of the colours and underneath it says mua. The back of the palette has the shade names and ingredients.

      I would definitely recommend getting this palette as they are so good for the amount of money you pay.

      Justin bieber the key rollerball

      It was my birthday recently and one of my closest friends got me this Justin bieber rollerball and the full size version of the key which came in the big bottle. I have to admit I was so happy when I opened the present. I had been wanting to get this perfume for a while now after smelling my cousins. The packaging of the rollerball is very nice and feminine. It is in a clear bottle made out of glass a big gold screw off lid which is also a very nice touch . It says justin bieber the key on the bottle aswell. The rollerball comes in a purple box with the key wrote on it again . The scent is gorgeous it is very fresh and flirtatious and is perfect for any girl in your life . It is a lovely scent for the summer months too . The rollerball is literally ideal for travel as it is very small and can fit perfectly in your makeup bag or in your pocket, however it still has a decent amount of product in it . It is allowed on the plane in your hand luggage as it is under the amount of 100 ml , infact it is only 10 ml ( the perfect size for a short break in the sun ). Overall I have to say this is the absolute best give for any girl of any age especially if they are going on a holiday soon.

      Hope this review helped you all xxx Imogen

      Work for me - smoke free for 8 weeks!

      I have now been a non smoker for 8 weeks! Yay me! A lot of the work has been done by using these patches.

      I started off my using these pastiches and askso having San electric cigarette. I didn't want to change the habit if smoking cigarettes for electric cigaretts so I only used the electric cigarettes for about 2 weeks and that was only when my cravings were really bad.

      I must say that my first week of non smoking was really hard, but, come week 2 it was significantly easier. I apply a patch first thing in the morning. My skin which is very sensitive to glue products does go pretty red when I take the patches off but I then apply the patch the next day on a different place and there seems to be no lasting effect on my skin.

      I am using the 24 hour patches but I found that keeping the patches on whilst sleeping gave me really strange and vivid dreams. The dreams were not particularly bad just weird. I have since started taking the patches off before bed to ensure a more calm sleep.

      Of course you still need will power whilst using these patches. Every time I see someone smoking I get drawn to the smell and want to smoke. It doesn't last long for me though and then I'm back to not wanting to be a smoker any more.

      Of course I don't know how my non smoking would be going if I was not using these patches but I just feel better knowing I have a patch on and it's like a little bit of support on my arm.

      Didn't work for me

      I have been suffering from IBS for nearly 10 years now. When I first went to the doctors I was prescribed peppermint tablets which to this day still work really well. However, I still suffer from the occasional flair ups. I have askso been prescribed some other tablets from the doctors for when I get these flair ups but I would always prefer to go for a more natural product whee one is available.

      Due to the price of prescriptions I started buying peppermint tablets online to save money. This got me looking into other herbal tablets. This is when I first came across artichoke tablets. They are supposed to really help with digestion problems such as IBS. I was initially put off of them due to the price but finally gave in and decided to give them a go.

      When I first started to take these artichoke tablets I didn't notice any real difference but after a month or so my stomach pains actually started to get worse. Of course it is difficult to says if this was a direct result of taking these artichoke tablets or not but when I stopped taking them my stomach started to feel better.

      With most herbal medicines they can take a long time to work and it can be difficult to know exactly if they are working or not. These tablets may work for other people but I will definately not be taking these tablets again myself. Obviously this is a shame but I won't let this put me off trying other herbal medication in the future. I also think that everyone reacts differently to certain medication so I guess it must work for some people.

      Review on bourjois chocolate bronzer

      This is the bourjois bronzing powder delice de poudre, however I like to call it the bourjois chocolate bronzer.

      This bronzer is meant to look like a chocolate bar and as you can all see from the picture above, it does. It is also meant to smell like chocolate. Personally I do not think that is true . Don't get me wrong it does have a very sweet scent however it does not remind me of chocolate in the slightest.

      The packaging of the bronzer is quite sturdy and looks a little bit like a book which I think is quite a cute idea for a product. The packaging is also quite hard so it does protect your bronzer from damage at the same time. The packaging opens and closes with a magnets.

      There is a decent amount of product for the price of £6.99 . It lasts a very long time too this is down to the fact that it is highly pigmented so a little bit goes and extremely long way .

      The colour of the chocolate bronzer is quite warm. There is no orange tones and it does not look the slightest bit muddy on the skin, it is a great colour for pale to darker skin tones which is an added benefit to the product.

      The powder does have a slight shimmer however it is not at all chunky and hardly shows up. All it does it give the skin a lovely glow which is absolutely perfect for the summer months.

      I like using a big fluffy blush to apply this as it doesn't pick up to much of the product and it does not make me look cakey .

      I put the bronzer on my cheeks temples over my nose and down my neck , where the sun naturally hits my face.

      I defo recommend this product xxx Imogen

      Advantages

      • Cheapish

      Disadvantages

      • "Can't buy it here"

      As brown as an Aussie dole bludger!

      I love the sun and can’t sit inside when it’s out. We belong together. It makes me feel good being brown and an unseasonably warm sunny day in March or October the best feeling on the face to perk one up for the dark nights to come. I have travelled all over the world in the winter following cricket and so ended up chasing the sun. I’m now naturally light brown in our winters and only require a little bit of sun in April to be tanned. Because I’m in a serious relationship with the sun I need protection. The cheap band in Wilkinson’s is not always appropriate.

      In a recent report it exposed just how much of a mark up sun tan cream manufacturers make when the sun comes out, more expensive than Don Perignon per liter in some stores, similar to the printer ink scam. It’s very much subject to supply and demand economics as far as prices go. The various brands consist of very similar ingredients and the chemical processes quite straightforward to make the stuff. Some cost a lot more to buy, especially kids brands, children susceptible to all manner of rashes and swelling when creamed up in the sun. I’m surprised the adverts are not more fear inducing for children’s projects to make worried parents get the most expensive brands. Then again that may score them away from being in the sun and so sell less.

      The idea with the Aussie oil is to be four-in-one. It deep dark tans like a traditional oil like Hawaiian Tropic but also offers protection like a cream, and the moisturizing qualities for the skin but a clean cooling gel delivery. The hemp bit is supposed to deliver revitalizing Vitamin E alongside the suns vitamin D giving effects. It’s a lotion/gel blend so cool to the skin and the moisturizing tag designed to target female consumers who fear skin damage to their face. If you sit in the sun you will get skin damage guys, what ever sun protection you use. Ultraviolet Radiation is bad for all of us.

      At this point I’m supposed to show you a bronzed picture of my abs and hulking shoulders and gently oil my six-pac but you will have to wait for that, girls, although I do private shows. It comes in at about 12 pounds for 250ml, which isn’t bad for a sun product here, if you can find this brand in our stores. It’s an imported product and rarely available here in the United Kingdom so surprised it’s the POW here, presumably the company wanting to get a hold in the UK through a marketing campaign strategy here. I got my supply, believe it or not, off the London Cheerleaders, who wiggle their pom poms at Northampton Steelbacks home Twenty20 matches. They are mostly Aussie girls based in London and giving away supplies from their sponsors. As a ‘cricket writer’ I have to make the most of opportunities on offer. Sadly they didn’t let me apply it pre-match but you live in hope.

      The oil is in a swanky container and feels cool to the skin when applied. Apparently it’s a big hit in tanning parlors in Thailand. If you slap too much on you are wasting it as it only needs one layer and there isn’t much of it in the bottle. Don’t think +50 will give you anymore protection than +15 and you simply pay more money for the more protection. Skin cancer rates are rising in the U.K. but +15 should be enough to provide basic protection. Don’t go out in the midday sun if you are fair-skinned. I’m darker skinned now so don’t have the ginger fear factor when it comes to buying creams. I’m not that convinced the Vitamin E from the hemp seed mush makes your skin softer in the sun and just a selling point gimmick to women to buy this brand. But it certainly makes it smell funny. I thought Hemp was another name for pot.

      It gives you that darker tackier tan women of a certain age and social climbing class get when they go to the Maldives or Minorca and perhaps more suited to men. Women don’t look sexy when their tan is too dark, especially if they are over 40. A nice light honey brown is sexy for bikini girls. I would say that if you believe the marketing hype then you will buy this but for me just another sun oil that I hope you can soon buy in Wilkos. Sadly, as yet, you can’t buy sun cream in pound stores because of that steep mark up.

      Shopping at river island , great clothes bargain prices

      I have always loved river island as I have always been able to get sorted out there for many years especially at summer time when I am in need holiday clothes . I have a daughter who Is 11 years old and loves it there. She recently purchased a lovely outfit in pale pink which was a midi skirt and a matching Bardot top that fitted her like a glove. Each of the items were £10 each which meant she got the whole outfit for a bargain price of £20 which I think is very reasonable considering it was such nice quality material.

      The shop is very big especially the one in the trafford centre which is my nearest branch . The changing rooms are very spacious and have hooks so you are able to hang your items up so they do not crease or get dirty on the floor.

      They have a wide selection of clothing. They do girls clothes, boys clothes , women's clothing and men's clothing. On top of that they also have perfumes , shoes , jewellery ,bags and sweets aswell as a few random things like Irish accent mouth spray, which by the way does not work the slightest bit .

      The staff in river island are very very friendly and they are always willing to help you if you have a problem.

      They are on track with all of the las test trends and they have a website where you can order online and check if the product you want is in stock. You do have to pay for delivery .

      My shopping experience at topshop xxx

      I recently went shopping in the trafford centre with my daughter for holiday clothes as we are going to Spain for ten days. I have to admit I was pleasantly suprised especially when I went into topshop with her.

      There was such a good choice of clothing plus there were racks upon racks of sale stuff for me and her to browse through. There were various different sizes of clothes ranging from petites which is a size four up to a larger size of around a 14.

      There were lots of different items too there were vest tops , pjamas , shoes , jewellery , makeup etc . I found this a positive as most shops nowadays only sell clothes and nothing else.

      In the end we managed to get completely sorted with some help off the very friendly staff. We bought shorts , tops , jeans , shoes and makeup which I was surprised about.

      The makeup stand was amazing. All of the products had such adorable packaging and was very well priced. There was a range of products. The things that interested me the most were the highlighters which were absolutely divine. The metallic eyeshadows which were also gorgeous. On top of that there are an amazing range of lipstick colours which are perfect for summer as they are so bright.

      Overall I would defo recommend going into topshop if you need some holiday clothes. I got absolutely loads and it didn't even come to that much as the sale was so big. Hope you enjoyed this review xxx Imogen

      Amazing shop , bargain price and big brand , TKMAXX

      Recently I have been literally obsessed with tkmaxx as they have such a big range of products and various different brands. There prices are very very reasonable and affordable. The products are all great quality and brand new.

      I personally love going there for beauty related item such as makeup. I love getting makeup in tkmaxx as it is all brand new and much cheaper than usual. Last week I got two sets of real techniques brushes for £14.99 each instead of £20 which is great especially when buying more that one set like I did. I also recently purchased a maybeline blush , physichans formula powder etc. All of these were much cheaper than they should of been .

      Not only do tkmaxx sell makeup and other beauty items they sell clothes for all different sizes from all different brands like dkny etc. they also sell shoes , I got hunter weeklies from there .

      There is an enormous homeware section aswell where you can get pans, shelves , door mats , knives etc.

      Overall I think tkmaxx is the best place to go as it satisfys all of you needs from makeup to homeware. All at great prices and everything has a very well known brand which is a benefit of course. It is much better than going somewhere like river island where they only sell clothing items and nothing else at the same time . I would certainly rate tkmaxx a 5 out of a 5 at it is one of the best shops ever .

      Btw the staff are friendly and helpful aswell xxxx

      Advantages

      • "Many characters"
      • "Diverse storylines"
      • Surprising

      Disadvantages

      • " etc."
      • " language"
      • " sex"
      • "Not for those easily offended - violence"
      • "Not one for those with short attention spans"

      An epic series that must be seen to be believed - it'll hook you in

      The phenomenon that is Game of Thrones is hardly avoidable. The likelihood is that if you haven't seen it, you've heard of it.

      One of the things you've probably heard is about the violence, sex. language, etc. - so let's get that discussed straight away! Yes, these things are all pretty noticeable, and if you're easily offended this is definitely not the TV series for you, but all these controversial elements are usually set within context. Westeros is a brutal, medieval, land - people get hurt, they get hurt brutally. Likewise when these people get hurt, it's not going to be 'Darn!' or 'Blast!' that is uttered around them - although there's also a lot of casual swearing. The sex is also part of this gritty world - but it does get pretty graphic, even within the first episode. Within context however, nothing really seems crass here - more like realistic.

      This is a fantasy that, except for the odd dragon or magic spell, is more of a gritty political drama (fans of fantasy will and do still love it however,)full of scheming and kings (lots of kings.)

      There are enough characters here to send anyone's head spinning - and the plot keeps twisting and turning along with them. If you go off to have a cuppa without pausing or setting someone in place to pay attention for you, you're going to get very, very, lost. You have to watch this from the beginning, without missing any episodes whatsoever, or you will get completely befuddled. This series thinks nothing of dispatching characters through a well placed sword, arrow, dagger, or axe with little or no warning.

      It's difficult to explain the scope of Game of Thrones - this vast, sprawling epic, with characters you love to hate and hate to love. It will make you cheer for those who have done terrible things without you even realising it. Prepare for a hell of a ride.

      Advantages

      • "does not smell very nice"

      A Scrubber's Dream!

      I bought this Cyclax apricot facial scrub a while ago.


      ~ Price and availability ~
      This scrub is available from Boots and Superdrug or online from cyclax.com where it costs just GBP2.25 for a 300ml tub.


      Packaging
      It comes in a large clear plastic tub.
      There is a label wrapped around it with pictures of apricots on the front and ‘Cyclax Nature Pure Apricot Facial Scrub’ in small lettering. The tub has a peach coloured, plastic, screw off lid.
      You can see the scrub through the tub. It is a beige colour with lots of dark brown grains in it.


      In use
      The back of the tub recommends using this scrub 1-2 times per week by wetting your face, lathering a little of the scrub with warm water between your fingertips and massaging into the face gently, avoiding the delicate eye are and then rinsing thoroughly with warm water.
      I only use this scrub now and again.
      Straight away when I twist off the lid and pull off the white plastic tab that prevents the product from going into the lid, I can smell the apricot scented scrub. It has quite a strong scent and it is quite sharp. I don’t like the scent or taste of apricots and I don’t like the scent of this, but it is one I can put up with.
      The scrub is very thick and the grains feel quite large.
      I only need to apply a small amount to my face. The scrub is very creamy and the grains don’t feel as harsh on my face as I first expected.
      I apply it to my face and then massage it in circular motions. I tend to apply quite a bit of pressure while I am doing this as I like facial scrubs to feel harsh on my skin because for me that is when they feel like they are really working. With less pressure this scrub is not too harsh and is quite gentle on your skin.
      Once the scrub has worked its magic I then rinse it off. It is easy to rinse. There are occasionally a few grains left behind on your face after the first rinse, but these are easily removed with more warm water.
      The scrub leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. It removes any impurities and dead skin cells. There is a definite improved feel to my skin and my skin even looks different. It appears matte, but does not look or feel dry and my pores appear reduced.
      I do not like the scent of this product, but I would recommend it and I have repurchased this product even though I do not like the scent.
      I would prefer it to be available in other scents, but after I have rinsed this off my skin I can no longer smell it so it doesn’t bother me too much.
      As you don’t have to use much of this product the pot lasts for ages and it is already very cheap to buy so it is great value for money.

      Review on the caudal ice beauty elixir

      This is a review on the caudalie beauty elixir. First of all let's talk about the beautiful packaging. It comes in a bottle which is made of frosted glass not plain glass which I think makes it look a lot more expensive. It has a nice shiny silver lid which also makes it look a lot more attractive. As it is so attractive it is perfect to leave on your dressing table to decorate it.

      The mist comes out of the container very well and covers your face very easily as it also provides an even coverage. I find that it usually take 2 - 3 sprays to cover my entire face.. That is the best way to use it as it does not waste as much product than it would if you applied it another way.

      It makes your skin feel very refreshed and nourished especially in the morning. It gives the skin a wonderful dewy glow which everybody wants. Also it makes your makeup look very natural.

      The scent is very fresh like herbs. It is like all the other caudalie beauty products. It is defo a perfect scent for spring and summer as it is so light.

      I would defo get this if you are going on a sun holiday as it cools you down and the size of the bottle is very travel friendly and allowed in your hand luggage as the travel version is only 100ml .I rate this product a 4 out of 5 .

      Advantages

      • " enjoyable to use"
      • " handy size for handbag"
      • "makes my skin look and feel hydrated"

      Disadvantages

      • " doesn't do much other than provide moisture"
      • "feels slightly greasy"

      I'm Picking Up Good Vibrations!

      I was given this Avon Solutions Vibes Wake Up Eye Roller as a gift from my mother, who is an Avon representative.
      As it was a gift I am not sure how much it cost, but I imagine it would have been around the GBP8.00 mark.

      Packaging
      It comes in a long tube with ‘solutions’ in metallic silver lettering and ‘vibes’ in bold greeny yellow coloured lettering along the side.
      The screw off lid is also the same greeny yellow colour as is the very bottom of the tube.
      The lid twists off to reveal the silver, metal rollerball.

      In use
      To use this eye roller you simply twist the bottom of the tube clockwise and the whole tube including the rollerball starts to vibrate gently. You then hold the tube pointing downwards to encourage the product to flow and then roll the rollerball under your eye to the outer corner for 10 seconds. The vibrations can then be turned off by twisting the bottom of the tube anti-clockwise.
      The directions then recommend that you use your finger to smooth in any excess product under the eye until absorbed. The directions also say to use this morning and night.

      The product claims to use the power of gentle vibrations to make your eyes look and feel like you’ve had a full 8-hours of sleep and it helps to brighten the eye area while diminishing the look of puffiness and dark circles.
      According to Avon, “The serum is formulated with Revitawake Complex”, which is something that it sounds like they have made up, but they don’t expand upon, which is really annoying.
      You could also use the product without turning the vibrations on, which I have also tried and I didn’t find too much product came out.
      I have had this for a while and the vibration feature still works and has shown no sign of giving up any time soon.
      The rollerball works well without ever sticking. It feels very cool on my skin and the serum feels wet. It is clear so it just looks wet on my skin. After applying the product I then use my finger to gently rub it in. It feels slightly greasy, but it rubs in quickly and easily and once it has been rubbed in there is no residue left on my skin and my skin feels normal.
      I do like to use this product. I often leave the product on my skin for a while before rubbing it in. I have never had any irritation from using this rollerball.
      After using this product my under eye area looks moisturised and perhaps a bit brighter. I wouldn’t say it makes a big difference to my skin and a lot of face creams and moisturisers would be able to offer the same results.
      I enjoy using this product. It feels as though it is doing my skin some good, but to be honest my skin doesn’t look much different after using this rollerball. The greasiness when I rub it in to my skin is its main disadvantage.
      I don’t find that it reduces the appearance of dark circles as it claims.
      I would consider buying this product again. It is a nice product to use. The serum feels very cooling on my skin and it makes my skin look and feel hydrated. If that’s all you’re after then this product does the job. It is also a handy size for carrying around with you.

      My review is on the apple iPad mini in white 16gb

      I received the iPad mini in white for my birthday on the 12th September 2013, and I have to say a day has not passed when I haven't been on it. Everything about it is amazing. So let me get started.

      First the ipad itself. When you first purchase the iPad mini it comes in a white box with a picture of the ipad on the front . The ipad I chose was the white one with 16 gb which happens to have quite a lot of memory. It is white on the. Front with a decent size screen. It has the usual apple button and the bottom and the front camera at the top. The back is light silver with the apple logo on it. Underneath that it says ipad and then some details about the ipad. On the top corner there is the normal camera with takes very clear pictures . On the top there is a lock button and on the right side there is the volume button.

      Then is the ipad. After you unlock the screen you will see the apps that it comes with like notes and iMessage. You have an enormous amount of apps to choose from aswell some are free and some are reasonably priced ( around 69 pence ) . The screen has great quality and is very clear . When typing a keyboard comes up which is easy to use as the letters are quite big.

      Overall the iPad mini is worth the money. Personally I think it is better than the ipad as it is smaller and easier to throw in your bag. Would rate 5/5 as can't fault it.
