NOTD - NYX Rainbow Sparkle

I thought I would put something a little bright on my nails to try cheer myself up seen as we're now well on the way to it being winter! 

As you can see the colour on my nails has come out slightly darker than the shade in the bottle and it's not very opaque. I think the next time I wear this shade I will put a white coat of polish on first and then apply rainbow sparkle. 
I love it though, it brightens up my day when I look down and see it!

Every Day FOTD

Just a quick post today to show you a look that I wore the other day!

I don't tend wear make up every day but when I do I will normally stick to the same kind of look unless it's for a night out.

And this is normally what I go for......

I am pretty boring when it comes to my make up, I always play it safe and go for browns and a nude lip. I would love to be more adventurous but I'm a big chicken!

Project 10 Pan Update

So hopefully you will have already read my Project Bathroom Update, but if not you can read it here! This post is going to be my Project 10 Pan update (as the title suggests!)

I am doing much better than I thought I would be! I've hit pan on 4 products and my mascara is getting to the end of it's little life!

So what have I hit pan on.....
E.L.F Complexion Perfection
17 Plum Puff Blusher
Prestige iQuad
Almay Line Smoothing Powder

I am counting the colours in my Prestige iQuad as 4 seperate colours as I don't really use the 2 purples in it. Hopefully the blusher will be the first to go, I have had it for years so it will be good to finally finish it off! 

I am determined to complete this P10P, I have never finished a make up item so it will feel so good when I finally do! 

If you are doing a P10P send me your links and I hope you are doing well!!

Project Bathroom Update!

Firstly sorry for the lack of posts recently and thank you for sticking with me! 

Even though I've not been posting, I have been keeping up with my Project Bathroom and P10P and I am pleased to say I haven't slipped up once!! I have been so tempted to go out and buy some of the new lovely make up that is about just now but I have been strong and resisted.

I will do a separate P10P update but I thought I would share with you what I have used up from my Project Bathroom so far!

Primark Beauty Wipes - These are great for the price, you get 2 pack of 25 wipes for £1! I didn't actually use these for taking off my make up though, I used these more for wiping off all the make up I end up with on the back of my hand when I am putting my make up on. They can be a little bit scratchy when I use them to take my make up off which is why I tend not to.
Would I repurchase? - Yes 

Batiste Brit - This is definitely one of my favourites from the Batiste range! I love, love, love the smell of it!! If they brought out a perfume of this I would be first in line to get it! There's not much I can say really about the dry shampoo bit of it. It works well and is a stable on my dressing table! 
Would I repurchase? - Definitely!

Lush Snow Fairy - Oh My God!! This is the first time I had ever tried anything from the Snow Fairy range and I LOVE it. This has gone straight to the top of my Christmas wish list. It is such a gorgeous sweet smell with lots of gorgeous glitter in it as well. Even my boyfriend would comment on how good I smelled after I had used this in the shower, so it must be good!!
Would I repurchase? - A big fat YES!!

Lush Happy Hippy - I got this in a set for my birthday last year and when I got it I was a little unsure about it, it's not a smell I would normally go for. It's made from grapefruit and has a very refreshing smell to it, where as I would normally go for flowery, sweet smells. I am really glad I gave this a go though. It made such a nice change to the shower gels I would normally use and was really good for waking me up in the mornings!
Would I repurchase? - Yes

FCUK Pure Bodywash - I really didn't like the smell of this bodywash. The smell, luckily for me, didn't last very long on my skin either. Safe to say, I was glad when this was all gone!
Would I repurchase? - No

Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion - This is a bit of a Meh! product for me, it was neither amazing or rubbish. It did what it was supposed to but it wasn't anything special. This bottle did last me forever though which is a good thing.
Would I repurchase? - Probably not, there's too many other cleansers I want to try!

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub - I hated this product! I don't know about you but if I don't use a scrub on my face my skin starts to all build up and look really horrible and flacky even though it is actually really greasy (mmmm attractive!!). I only use a scrub every other day though as I don't want to scrub away all those good oils that my skin needs. This scrub however did absolutly nothing for me!! The little scrubby bead bits in this are just too wee for me. I couldn't feel anything at all when I put this on my skin and I had to use an exfoliating sponge to get it to work
Would I repurchase? - No

Sanex Dermo-Protector Shower Gel - I actually used this as a bubble bath after a long hard day when I just wanted to relax! So I can't really give you my opinion of this as a shower gel but it did make a good bubble bath. Obviously there was no where near as many bubbles as you would get with an actually bubble bath but it was a lovely relaxing bath!
Would I repurchase? - Yes I probably would but use it for what it's meant for!!

Superdrug Self Heating Smootie Mask - This mask smells amazing! If you love fruity, sweet smell then you will love this. I loved that it was self heating, it was nice and warm but not too warm (does that make sense?!) After using this my skin did feel very soft and had a little bit of a glow about it. 
Would I repurchase? - Yes

Quickies Nail Polish Remover Pads - These are great for taking with you if you are going on holiday or a weekend away. Something I don't like about them though is the greasy/oily feel that they leave on your nails and fingers after you use them. If you're anything like me then you'll need to be careful when you use them not to get it everywhere!
Would I repurchase? - Yes

Pantene Pro V Smooth and Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner - I really like this shampoo and conditioner! I have written a review on them here if you want to have a wee read!
Would I repurchase? - Yes

Sure Clear Pure Deodorant x2 - I have been using this deodorant for years! There's not much to say about it really, it smells nice and it works! What more can you want!
Would I repurchase? - Yes

Batiste Original - This is my least favourite from the Batiste range. It does what it's supposed to but the smell isn't very nice. There are much nicer scents available but it it worked when I had nothing else!
Would I repurchase? - Only if it was the only one available

So that's everything I have used up so far! I am pretty pleased with the stuff I've gotten through so far and it's so satisfying finishing up products!
