NOTD - Make Up Revolution Boy Needs Girl

If you seen my last post on my Make Up Revolution haul then you will know that I picked up one of their £1 nail polishes. At £1 there were so many polishes I could have chose but I was restrained and chose a gorgeous pale baby pink called Boy Needs Girl. I have been wearing this all week and I received so many compliments about it and people asking where it is from. One thing I wasn't a massive fan of though was the formula of the polish. The polish went on a little streaky and it took 3 coats to get an nice even, opaque finish. It lasted well on my nails though, with only a few chips after a couple of days wear.
Overall I like this polish, I love the price, the compliments I got while I was wearing it and the colour! It is a great colour for summer and I think I will definitely be picking up some more colours from the range!

Beauty - Make Up Revolution Haul

If you are like me and spend a lot of time on Twitter and reading blogs, then I am sure that the new brand on the block, Make Up Revolution, hasn't passed you by! 
After seeing a few posts and tweets about it I thought I would check it out myself and see what all the fuss was about. And after about 2 minutes of being on their website I decided I needed to place an order!! 
One thing that I love about Make Up Revloution is the price, with items as low as £1 it would have been rude not to order a few things! Right??

I have seen a lot of people say that the Redemption palettes are dupes of the Urban Decay Naked palettes so the Iconic 3 palette was first into my basket and at only £4 it's a complete bargain. I also picked up 3 single eyeshadows in Temptress (the green one), Frozen (silver one) and Illuminate (pale gold) which were all £1. I can't wait to try all of these out! Another 2 eye products I got were the Amazing Eyeliner Waterproof and the Amazing Lengths Mascara, which were both £1.50. A girl can never have too many mascaras! From the lip products I chose 3 lipsticks, all for £1 each. Bliss and Divine both look quite similar and look like they will be great everyday spring/summer colours. I also picked up Lady which is waaay out of my comfort zone! I don't really own any red lipsticks so for £1 I thought I would give this one a go! The last item I got was a nail polish in Boy Needs a Girl for £1, a pale baby pink that I think is very simialr to Barry M's Rose Hip.

I haven't tried out many of the products yet, but the ones that I have, have impressed me. I think there may be another wee Make Up Revolution haul on the cards soon!

Recipe: Peanut Butter and Nutella Fudge

It is a pretty bold statement, but...this is probably one of the easiest things I have ever made!! It only takes 3 ingredients and is really quick and simple to make. My perfect type of recipe!!

All you need is:

1 cup of peanut butter 
(I used smooth peanut butter but you could always try a crunchy one to give it a different texture)
1 cup of nutella
1 tub of pre-made vanilla frosting

In a bowl you mix the peanut butter and nutella together. Next microwave the vanilla frosting for 1 minute so that it is runny. Then all you have to do is mix the frosting into the peanut butter and nutella mixture, put the whole lot into a square tin (or whatever shape you want to use) and then put it in the fridge for it to set! Simple!
This fudge is not exactly diet friendly and it is extremely sweet so I could only mange 1 piece at a time so wasn't too bad. I think I will definitely be making this again.
