*"* Checklist.... No4. TICK*"*

*"* HEY *"*

OK ticked off one item of my winters wishlist for 2010!!

So as you can see in my previous post I have a 2010 A/W list of items I really want this year that I either missed out on last A/W or just really want this year anyways... (see below for more info) and one of the items was UGG's....this has changed to just furry boots as I don't have £140 to just throw away like that and won't for a while...or not at least one just one product, I would much rather pay for a look-a-like which is £30 and lots of other bits I want than £140 on the one item for the name.

ANYWAYS!! so these are the ones I just purchased...(see pic below)...they are in River Island, brand new in and only £29.99! I think they look much much nicer than UGG's and they are way softer and more waterproof (I've already trodden through a few puddles due to the recent weather and my feet were still bone dry when I took them off once home). They only come in brown but I'm totally in love with them and they are THE most comfy shoes/boots I have ever owned! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

So yeh, if your looking for some UGG like (but better and cheaper) boots this year, get down to your local River Island...or if you trust me enough just keep an eye on the site, they aren't on there yet as, as I mentioned, they are brand new but I'm sure they will be soon!!

Thanks for reading :-)

*"* A/W 2010 *"*

*"* HEY YA *"*

I don't know about you guys but there are a few of items that are back again this year that I didn't have last year and really REALLY want this year! (Click item for link to the wish-list item)

1) Cowboy boots
2) Military boots
3) Fur Coat OR THIS
4) UGGs - I know surprising huh, everyone has a pair of these ... except lil ol' me :(
5) Wellies!!!
6) A slimmer figure like I had in A/W 2009!

Yes even though I'm not exactly fat I have decided I need to eat less. Just like cut down my meal portions a little and don't snack as much. I do believe this is the best way to 'diet' as you aren't then taking away things your body needs, like carbs and protein, or putting things in it that it doesn't need like loads of syrup or pills. So if you guys, like me, feel like you wanna loose those last few pounds or more quickish, then this is the way to do it healthily and safely!

*"* Daily Skincare Routine *"*

*"* HELLOOOO *"*

SO this, I believe, is the only skincare post I have, I don't have a vid yet either but that will be up soon! PROMISE! Its easier to talk to a camera I find :-) but here goes :-):

Ok so here's the products I use in the morning...every morning:

(Left to right):
Clinique 7 Day Scrub (sample from current deal) £16.50 (full size)
Simple Cleansing Lotion £2.99
Cinique Anti Blemish Solutions Gel £12
Clinique Superdefence Moisturizer SPF 25 (sample from current deal) £26 - 34 (full size dependent on skin type)

And these are all of my evening products:
(Left to right):
Superdrug Eye Makeup Remover £0.59
Simple Cleansing Lotion £2.99
Cinique Anti Blemish Solutions Gel £12
Boots Night Treatment Gel (Tea Tree + Witchhazel) £2.99

I'm highly recommending every product above except for the Superdrug Eye Makeup Remover as I am looking to replace this. Reason being is because it really makes your eyes sting whilst using it...so I will update this when I have replaced it which will be soon! Well ASAP.

My skin type is a oily combination, it is very oily in my T and A zone and dry every where else and I am finding all these products (especially the Clinique ones) are very helpful with this. I now get a non-dry foundation look...no more having to apply extra primer! I also have gone from loads of spots to just a few *touches wood* within a week! Which has really lifted my mood and my confidence and I really didn't realise how much of an impact that had on me!

I hope this is helpful to any of you that are in the same situation as me!

*"* BYEEEE *"*

*"* EYEKO nails *"*

*"* HEY AGAIN *"*

Whoot I'm on a roll here!! :-)

So courtesy of Moonbeamstarlight I got a collection of five EYEKO nail polishes for my 21st and I LOVE the colours! Looking at the website (CLICK ME) they are £3.50 each or you can get them in small set of three for £8.50 and a set of five for £14. And they are definitely worth the price! The colours are beautiful and are proven to be good for nail designs. HERE is a link to Moonbeamstarlight's latest video on a very creative and easy of doing it way to customize you nails...I must try this! They are quite matt (except for the Petite one which is quite sheer) hoever is a lovely finish and would be a perfect 'natural nail' colour for a French Manicure.

(Left to right):

Coral Polish (For resort nails)
Tes Rose Polish (For country nails)
Nude Polish (For perfect nails)
Petite Polish (For french nails)
Lilac Polish (For lovely nails)

Hope this is of use to you :-)


*"* Gillette Venus Divine *"*

*"* HEY YA *"*

Ok so just a quicky to let you know about the Gillette Venus Divine as it has been reduced in Superdrug to £3.49!!!! Yes thats right, I would say, one of their best razors at SUCH a low price....I don't need another one yet but I thought at that price pfff I'll just get it anyways...as a matter of fact don't just get one (seeing as the heads are still £5.99 for 3) I got three! Which I know is a bit excessive but meh, cheaper in the long run right! :-)

Oh and their previous price was £6.69 :-)

*"* BYE *"*

*"* 3 for 2 on Rimmel *"*

*"* HEY *"*

Ok guys sorry I've not blogged in a while I got a little carried away with vlogging :) but I have some new bits to show you...I will do them in separate posts for you :-).

So in Superdrug at the moment they have 3 for 2 on all Rimmel products, just like they did in Boots last month. Last month I purchased three out of the four scented nail polishes (Cranberry Zest, Strawberry Fizz and Apricot Punch) so the only one I was missing was Lemon Drop ... but ... I now have that too along with a new top coat as the one I was using (Collection 2000) I found made my nails 'bubbly' so I'm giving this one a go, I also got a really nice pink for the 60 seconds collection:

(top left, clockwise):

60 Seconds 619 (1 sec application)
5 in 1 Base and Top Coat - NEW
Fruity Scent Lemon Drop 058
Fruity Scent Cranberry Zest 066
Fruity Scent Apricot Punch 053
Fruity Scent Strawberry Fizz 025

I really love all these colours although the Lemon needs at least two coats its very sheer. They all smell as named except the 'Cranberry Zest' it smells more like raspberries but hey ho its still nice. They are quite strong scents the lemon more than the others but thats also maybe because you have to apply more of it.

So yesh overall I highly recommend these, the Fruity Scents are only £2.99 each, the base and top coat is £4.49 and the 60 seconds is £3.49 so overall pretty cheap and worth the price!

See you in the next post!

*"* Crimping....Likey or No Likey? *"*

*"* HEY *"*

So I've just come across a really random 'fact' about this autumns fashion and trends.....turns out CRIMPING!!! is IN?!?!?! I'm not too sure about this to be honest it is a very 'suits some and not others' trend. I personally find it makes my hair SOOO boofy and doesn't really suit me, but then the last time I crimped my hair was back in high school...so like 7 years ago LOL! BUT on the up side they only cost like £15 for a decent pair of crimpers so if you wanna give it a try it may be worth investing in some now before companies get hold of the fact they are coming 'IN' and rocket their prices up!

Anywhos...what do you think about this? Have you tried it before? What was your experience of it? Are you willing to try it again?

Let me know guys!
