Vaseline Limited Edition Creme Brulee

Hi Girls

This is a painful post for me to write I normally love the Vaseline Lip Therapy and when I saw they were going to release a limited edition Creme Brulee one I knew I had to have it.  So after much shop searching I finally found it in SuperDrug I picked up 2 one for me and one for Rachel.  However I really don't like it one little bit I think it has a perfume smell and taste to it which I don't like, it was nothing like I was hoping it would be.

So with all that been said I still love my Vaseline coco butter one which I think will remain my favourite.

If you could make a Vaseline Lip Therapy what scent/flavour would you pick I think I would make chocolate or strawberry one.

Sleep Rollers

Hi Girls xxx

I hope your well I was lucky enough to get sent these to review I can't tell you how excited I was when they arrived as I have heard such great things about them I have been lusting after wavy hair for ages.  So I read up on them and it said to apply to fresh washed and dried hair but for extra curl slightly damp hair was fine too now as my hair is thick and long I decided to apply mine to damp hair.   

First thing was I think I could do with getting a extra pack as I didn't quite have enough for all my hair or I didn't put them in well enough to get all my hair in them.  Now these are designed so you can sleep in them and sleep well.  So the proof of the pudding is in the tasting so I popped them in and off I went to bed after much giggling from Jon but sleep I did and well they didn't keep me awake at all which I was surprised about to be honest.

This is How They Arrive

You Get the Pink Draw String Bag and 20 Rollers

The Size of The Rollers

So Soft Perfect For Sleeping

So I popped them in and the secured them with a bobby pin which fits between the Velcro bit of the roller and the sponge in the middle as there is a gap.  |I didn't use hair spray but I did put a little mouse in my damp hair .  Now the curls didn't last that long in my hair and I think heat would of helped so I think I am going to purchase the hairdryer hood which lets you heat the hair while in the rollers which I think would make the curls hold longer.

Of Course Faith just had to try them out too!

As you can see Faith had a go with them and they worked really well gave her soft bouncy curls which lasted the day.  I think these are amazing and you can purchase them Here the set which includes the draw string bag and 20 rollers costs £16.50, Extra set of 10 rollers is £8.00 and the hair dryer hood is £16.50 all have free postage and packaging for a limited time.

Have you tried these what did you think?

Easy Biscuits Recipe and Our New Biscuit Barrel

Hi Girls

I hope you have all had a great Easter we have had a almost chocolate free Easter as we are still on our diets. We have tried to remove temptation so Jon and I brought each other a gift instead of eggs.  We normally always get Faith a small gift to as she tends to get loads and I mean loads 25+ eggs at Easter but this year we got her a small egg in a Minnie Mouse cup as we are off to Florida later in the year so everything is Minnie Mouse at the moment with Faith.  

We have never had a biscuit barrel as biscuits are my downfall but my mum got this one for faith for Easter and some biscuit cutter so last week Faith had her best friend over and we made biscuits to fill it.

 Our New Biscuit Barrel (So Cute)
 The Baked Biscuits
 Full (but for how long)

This is the easiest recipe for biscuits EVER!!!
90g Unsalted Butter
100g Brown Caster Sugar ( I always use light brown caster sugar)
1 Large Egg
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
200g Plain Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

5 steps to make them (told you it was easy)

  1. Preheat oven to 180
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar then add the egg and vanilla sift in the flour and baking powder and salt. mix all the ingredients together to form a dough add more flour if needed if it is to sticky roll in flour and wrap in cling film and pop in fridge for at least an hour.
  3. Take dough and roll out on flour till about 5mm thick.
  4. Cut out the biscuit and place on a lightly buttered and floured baking try.
  5. Bake in centre of over for about 8-12 min or until golden brown removed and let cool on a cooling rack.  
Decorate and eat I like mine plain.

OPI Haul

Hi Girls xxxx

As you know I have been doing Weight Watchers and it is going really well but with my weight lose my nails of all things are suffering don't ask me why but since starting my diet my nails which are normally very strong and in good condition have turned into peeling chipping wrecks and they have stopped growing.  So I purchased OPI Nail Envy and the OPI Avoplex nail and cuticle oil.  

 Nail Envy 
Apply 2 coats and then 1 every other day then after a week remove and start again
Avoplex Oil
Apply twice a day and message into the nail and cuticle

So I'm hoping that with the help of these two things I can get my nails back on track.

I got mine from EBay as Nail Envy is normally about £18 and the Avoplex Oil is £16.30 i got the 2 for £11 Bargain!! Link to EBay seller

I'll keep you posted on how I get on with them.

America EBay Haul Maybelline And Physicians Formula

Hi Girls xxx

I have been dying to get my hands on these items for ages and for mothers day Jon said for me to order them as my gift which I did, I searched EBay and found an amazing shop and seller.  She had so much stuff I wanted to get but this is what I got this time.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Peppermint Lip Balm $3.99

 Physicians Formula happy booster in Beige
 Physicians Formula Happy booster in beige blush in Natural and translucent $13.99 each

Here is a link to EBay Seller Mommydezarns her shop is stocked full of great items and my order arrived really quick.  I did have one powder which arrived broken not the fault of the seller but she replaced it if only all EBay sellers were as wonderful as this lady.  

I will be using this seller again soon and I would recommend anyone who needs anything sending over from America to contact her if she hasn't got it I'm damn sure she would go out of her way to see if she can get it for you.

I think the next thing I will try is the Maybelline instant age rewind eraser foundation and under eye concealer as I have heard great things about these.  Also I would love to try more of the Baby lips and the Physicians Formula stuff and I am really impressed with these so far.  There is so many thing from the USA I want to try and I cant wait to get and pick up some stuff.

1 thing I would say is if you place a order try and place orders of under $20 as otherwise you may incur shipping tax again this is at not fault of the sender but something to bare in mind.

NOTD China Glaze Fast Track (Hunger Games Collection)

Hi Girls xxxx

Remember me sorry its been a while but I've been trying to save for our holidays so I have not been spending but I got a £5 off pay pal voucher so I treated myself to this.  Now I have to be honest I think I need every polish in this collection as I love them.

China Glaze Fast Track
The Whole Collection

Not the easiest to photograph but you can see the gold shimmer

Look really pale in this pic

Fast Track is a really pretty and easy to wear nude with a beautiful gold shimmer.  This polish is simply stunning I have really enjoyed wearing it as I have been wearing loads of full colour polishes and lots of dark colours so this was a nice change and looked amazing in the sunshine. 

Have you tried any of these polishes what cant you live without?
