OPI Mani – Dont Give a Rotterdam!

IMG_3991I know I only just changed my nail polish but working in a beauty salon makes it so tempting to change up my colour every few days or so!

Today I went for this gorgeous shimmery grey! Its called “Dont give a Rotterdam!” by OPI.

On the ascent nail I have “Lucerne-tainly look Marvellous” by OPI ..Ye I dont get it ether! I love this colour so much! Its more a gun-metal grey. I wish I used it on all the nails. Maybe next time! 

What colours have you been loving this Autumn?

Have a beautiful day! xxx

July Beauty Favorites ~ CatchAnEye

image(2)I have had so many beauty favorites this month but I wanted to keep it short and sweet! so I picked my absolute favorites!

image(9)Soap and Glory ~ Smoothie – Breakfast Scrub

I am always in the market for a good body scrub, I get through them like nobodies business! I have never tried Soap and glory but have heard amazing things so I thought I would give this a go. Let me tell you…the smell!! If you don’t buy this at least go give it a smell. Its made with oat, sugar and shea. The combination makes it smell like caramel. The sugar gives you a good full body exfoliation without leaving you feeling sticky. Iv used this every couple of days since I got this around a month ago and as you can see I have made the tiniest dent compared to the amount you get.

Fotor0803154536Clinique Chubby Stick ~  06 Woppin’ Watermelon

I got this free in Glamour magazine, which is amazing because they retail for £17 full size. I’m pretty sure this isn’t full size but its a decent sample size. I have found now the weather is a tad warmer its far more enjoyable to use. Before it felt like I was trying to smear crayon on my lips. In the heat it has become much easier to apply. Its a sort of “my lips but better” colour. Its nice and sheer but as a pop of colour. I don’t really like the smell though.

Fotor0803155123So Susan ~ Universal Blush

Personally I hate the look of blush on me. I have never found one to suit my pale complexion. I got this blush in a Glossy Box and decided to give it a go. It claims to work with your skins natural chemistry to create a universal healthy flush that is flattering on all skin tones. I think it actually lives up to its claims! A little goes a long way and it gives me a gorgeous glow! I dont think I would pay full price because it is kinda expensive, but if you can get it on a deal or find it on eBay, go for it!
You can pick it up here for £17.95

image(7)Rituals ~ Magic Touch Body Cream ~ Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk

I’m pretty sure I have mentioned this in a favorites before but its still going strong! I love everything about this. This smell especially. It sinks in to your skin quickly and the scent lingers for a good 24 hours! The only down side is I am quickly running out! Its time to repurchase this one.
You can pick it up here for £5.50

image(10)MUA ~ Undressed Eyeshadow Palette

This is said to be a superb dupe for Urban Decays Naked Palette but for a fraction of the price! I cant shed any light on this I’m afraid as I have never tried the Naked palettes. It is the perfect neutral palette. The shades are all shimmer except for 3 matte shades. I can use this from day to night and would defiantly recommend it!
You can pick it up here for £4

Fotor0803154352The Body Shop ~ Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream – 01 Light

I’m almost done I promise! I saved this one till last because its my favorite out of the lot. It is one of the only BB creams I have found that is light enough for my pale complexion. A little goes a long way and it doesn’t cling to any dry patches. The coverage isn’t the best but its a great base for concealer for those with problem skin! It comes in 3 shades so give it a go!
You can pick it up here for £8

So there we have it! What are your July favorites??
Have a beautiful day! xxx

March Favorites // CatchAnEye

IMG_3379So I haven’t blogged in over 2 weeks.. I’m not going to make any excuses about excessive work because the truth is..I have been lacking so much motivation! However I am back!

Lets get on with it! March has been a really nice month in beauty for me! I have run out of a lot of things and have been trying new things!

 

 

Sleeping-Beauty-Wallpaper-sleeping-beauty-6259616-1024-768but first….Memory Foam!

I could not leave this out of my March favorite. The other half and I were really struggling with sleeping, back aches and just general groggy-ness when we wake up. We decided to splash out and purchase a new memory foam mattress and King size bed frame! I am in love.. I really do struggle to roll out of bed now. 100% recommend memory foam. It can be slightly pricey but if you do your research you can find one on eBay for under £100.

 

 

 

NailsIMG_3386

Moving swiftly on to the beauty side of things. I have been loving Barry M’s Gelly nail paints. In particular I am really enjoying Pomegranate. It is a bright pinky red. Almost coral. I’ll be honest I am completely a dark nail kinda girl but recently I am been loving bright and pastel nails. It’s all your gorgeous Spring pictures you have all been posting on WordPress!

 

Makeup

IMG_3380Now Spring is here I am all about the dewy fresh finish! I recently purchased MUA’s new highlighting powder in Undressed. It’s a beautiful shimmer pink powder. It suits my pale complexion perfectly. However I think it would suit any skin tone really well!IMG_3385

 

 

Now this is my newest product..after giving into the blog hype of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Now I am not sure if you can get this out of the UK but it has answered all my concealer prays! It lasts all day and covers anything. I mean anything…

 

Hair Care

IMG_3381I have been trying out a new hair care routine. When I get it right you will be the first ones to know! MY hair is bleached, damaged and snapping off! Oh the benefits of being blonde!   I am currently trying out Redken’s Anti-Snap hair care line. I got a mini tester kit which comes with shampoo, conditioner and an anti-snap leave in serum. I am liking it! I haven’t noticed too much of a difference after 2 uses but it smells sooo good!!

 

Skin Care

Going to be honest my skin is appalling right now so I am not going to recommend anything but if you have any suggestions please do let me know!!

 

Body Care

garnier_body_oil_beauty_oil-infused_nourishing_lotion_250mlI have been liking the new body lotion, Garnier Oil Beauty Lotion. It doesn’t leave me feeling sticky and I can get dressed straight away. I have noticed that I itch a lot less now and I have a suspicion this is to thank for it! Only down fall…it smells funny!

 

FashionIMG_3388

There are some exciting fashion trends coming out this Spring and Summer! Including pastels, daisy print and bright splashes of colour. My favorite for this March is PRIMARK! There are some amazing pieces coming out this Spring including this little beauty..I could not resist it!! I am still trying to figure out how to style it but I am determined to wear it to college tomorrow to brighten up my day in that dull classroom!

 

Scents

IMG_3387I almost forgot about this! My new Spring scent is Katy Perry’s Killer Queen perfume.

Top Notes: Dark Plum, Wild Berry and Bergamot.
Heart Notes: Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumeria and Natural Jasmine Sambac.
Base Notes: Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart and Liquid Praline
I don’t know what it is about the combination but it is just perfection for me! Not going to lie the bottle is really pretty too!

So this post is very varied! Do let me know if you prefer that or would just like me to stick to a certain topic like fashion or makeup. 

My Spring Top Pick’s Ft Justfor5pounds

spring

Dress//Jeans//Shoes//Necklace//Jumper//Bag//Makeup

I have been really really stressed the past couple of weeks and today finally everything has come back together and there is peace in this little mind of mine. So I do apologies for the lack of posts.

I was excited for this post because spring is right round the corner! Here in the UK it keeps showing little glimpses that it’s on its way!

Now that’s out the way let’s get to the fun bit! I love creating these collages. You lot are going to be sick of them by the end of the year!

One trend that I am excited for this spring is daisy print and pastel colours! I can tell they are going to be huge this spring.Don’t forget to add an over sized jumper to keep you warm.

Here are a few of my top picks that I came across on www.justfor5pounds.com. I defiantly recommend you to go and check it out!

Just for 5 pounds is an amazing website that is really affordable and bang on trend. They are constantly coming out with new pieces. I haven’t yet purchased anything from there but bring on pay-day!

I couldn’t resist in including some of Bobbi Brown’s new collection. Most of it can be found in her new mothers day collection. I have link everything at the top!

Well that’s it for now! Let me know what you are most excited about this Spring!

As always have a beautiful day! xxx

Pamper Evening Routine | Catchaneye

e28ed92a-6dac-4dae-85d1-842cec6e269cwallpaperNow I am no stranger to a good pamper evening once or twice a week! I think it’s so important to take some time out of your busy week to have some ‘me time’.

I don’t know about you guys but I can only seem to relax when my flat is clean and tidy! So I start my evening off with tidying and organizing the flat! I like to open all the windows and let in a bit of fresh air!DSCF1191

Now that’s out the way I can finally chill!

 

 

 

 

IMG_3097Hair Mask

I apply a hair mask, the one I am using tonight is Marilyn from Lush. It is great if you have natural or bleached hair. It takes your hair from brassy to classy in under 20 minutes! I did a review of it that you can check out here. For a more purse friendly alternative you can simply use mayonnaise! For more information on that click here.

 

 

Bath Time!f8d85406-aee6-44b8-8094-ffb0e0d17e1bwallpaper

Run a bath using your most luxurious bath goodies! I am using another Lush favorite, Shoot for the Stars. Light a few candles and let your stressed soak away!
I like to use a good body scrub in the tub! I am using Spa Finds Heavenly Hydrating Salt Brushing. It’s the best scrub I have ever tried! Its made with the salt crystals from the dead sea and is rich in Coconut Oil.
Now would be the perfect time for hair removal! Personally I use Venus and Olay razors along with their shaving gel. It leaves my legs silky soft!
I finish up with a scrummy smelling shower gel!

 

DSCF1163Hair Care!

Rinse out that hair mask under some clean warm water and follow-up with your usual hair care routine. I am constantly changing up my hair care! I am currently using Dove Heat Defense Shampoo and Conditioner. I am also trying out L’oreal Elvive Full Restore Hair Mask.
Give your hair a break from all the heat and let it dry naturally! Also try to avoid brushing your hair until it is completely dry!
I also like to use Aussie Miracle Recharge leave in conditioner and Avon’s Moroccan Argan Oil Spray. They leave my hair feeling very soft and manageable!

 

 

Body Care!garnier_body_oil_beauty_oil-infused_nourishing_lotion_250ml

When I came out of the bath it is essential that I add all the moisture back to my skin. My legs can get very itchy, particularly in this cold weather! I am currently loving Garnier Oil Beauty Lotion. It smells divine and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky! A full review will be up soon!

 

 

DSCF1175Skin Care!

What better time to slap a face mask on than a pamper evening! I am currently loving Spa Finds Balanced Beauty range! This is the skin care line we use at the place I work. It is packed with minerals and oils that skin loves! Full review will be up soon for this too! Whatever brand you are using remember ~ Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise!
It is also really important to use an eye cream. You are never too young to look after the delicate skin around your eye!

 

 

Hands and FeetDSCF1180

Gives those digits some love! Remove any chipped old nail polish and give your fingers and toes a make over with your favorite colour! I picked Topshop’s Nail Polish in Blitz.

 

 

 

IMG_3290Pajamas!

Get into your comfiest snuggest jammies! Settle down with a nice drink of your choice! My favorite is currently peppermint tea. It really relaxes me ready for a good night sleep!

 

Now go and relax!

If your interested in having a nosy in my makeup bag then keep reading! First here is a quick disclaimer! I don’t wear all of this every day. I like to keep my makeup quite natural for work.
