Review: Avene Thermal Water Spray

Hi All!!

Avene Thermal Water Spray

It's Purpose:
Essential soothing care for sensitive, hypersensitive, allergic and irritated skin. Directly taken from the very source of spring, Avene thermal Water is bacteriologically pure; it is the only thermal spring water to be packaged in a sterile unit , in a high tech, state of the art production unit. It is ideal for sensitive, fragile skin, which it wraps up in a thin, protective, soft and fresh veil, providing a sensation of relief, comfort and well-being. (Taken from the website)

Thermal water can be used for a range of purposes such as:

♥ Soothing action
- Sunburn
- After anti-acne treatment
- Diaper Rash
- Various forms of irritation
- Razor Burn
- After hair removal

♥ Comforting, refreshing action
- To complete cleansing
- To 'set' make-up
- After outdoor activity
- In Summer
- When travelling

Simply spray onto the skin in a fine mist. Wait for a few seconds, and if needed pat dry.

My thoughts:
I originally started using this product two years ago when I received a sample size from my work (Boots) and found it was brilliant for using on a hot day to cool you down. So before my trip to Zante last month I bought this spray again as I knew it would help with cooling me down on those super HOT days; and that it did! But whilst reading the back of the 50ml bottle I noticed it states it 'sets make-up' so I snapped it up for £2.98!

Unfortunately the 50ml bottle didn't last more then three days as I was constantly using it due to the heat and on the nights to set my make-up. I ventured out to the local chemist and found a 300ml bottle for around nine euros!!! It also helped with a few mosquito bites I received that turned pretty nasty. See below....

I must say it does exactly what it says on the bottle, it helped soothe those nasty bites that turned part of my leg purple!!! I am so please I started using this again. And the 300ml bottle is still lasting me!

*thumbs up*

Nails: OPI Nail Lacquer

Hi All!!

I was looking through my mothers nail varnish collection as I fancied a different colour to what I usually wear, and came across this gem; OPI: Romeo & Julliet. My mom is a big fan of reds, plums and everything in between so I wasnt shocked when I came across this. But this is my first experience of OPI nail varnish!! I've seen a few reviews of this brand on other blogs and have been keen to try it myself.

Overly I am very pleased with this shade, it took two coats to achieve the rich colour and drys quite quickly! I will be searching the net for more OPI shades, anyone know any fab sites that sell this at a cheap price?

PS! Enjoy? Follow me and if you have a blog, ill follow you!

Gucci and Cavalli... what more could a girl want??

Hi All!!

So my aunty has recently been granted a healthy bit of compensation due to a back injury she gained during work a few years ago, and its been a long time coming but she finally got the money she deserved *whoop*!! Out of the goodness of her heart, she decided to treat her immediate family with dinner and individual gifts!! And here is what I received...

Roberto Cavalli Glasses
I have yet to take them to the opticians to see how much it will cost to have prescription lenses put it.

I love love love love my Cavalli glasses, they are a lovely royal blue, and don't particularly go with much but I love them just the same!! I am also in love with the Zebra print lining inside the cases, which suits me fine as Zebra print is my favourite animal print!!! Anyways... the mother was also given a gift and here it is...

Gucci Sunglasses
My camera is really crap at zoom, apologies!!!

When we got home, the mother insisted she swap the Gucci sunglasses for the Armani glasses she bought me for my holiday to Zante because they suit her more and the these suit me more.... I didn't hesitate to say yes!! So there we have it Cavalli and Gucci glasses in the same day.... I feel very lucky!! :o)

Review: Avon Senses Tropics Body Scrub

Hi All!!!

Avon Senses Tropics Body Scrub

It's Purpose:
Stimulating & exotic summer fragrance that will lift your senses and boost your inner smile every time you shower.

My Thoughts:
I have only recently started using this since I came back from Zante and I must say I am impressed! I've gotta be honest, im not a big fan of Avon products... not that I dont like them, i've never actually given them a chance. But now that the mother seems to be becoming more addicted to some of their items, I may have to start ordering a few things myself.

The scent of this body scrub is lush, I find myself standing in the shower and just sniffing the air.. hahaa! I know I sound really weird :o) I also like the texture, its not too harsh but not too soft... you know what I mean? Because sometimes body scrubs can be waaaay to harsh on the skin and others do absolutely nothing!! This scrub just sits in the middle and I like it. After i've used it, my skin instantly feels smooth which is great because I know that its worked. The pricing is fab too, at £3 you can't go wrong! *Thumbs Up*

PS. Enjoy? Follow me and if you have a blog, i'll follow you!!

I have always really wanted....

..... this Vivienne Westwood top/dress from Season Five of Sex and the City!!!!

This outfit is from the episode that Carrie Bradshaw gets "arrested for smoking a doobie." :o)

If you don't know, i'm a huge SATC fan as i'm sure most of you all are. I watch it all the time and enjoy re-creating Carrie Bradshaws outfits from time to time! I have always been obsessed with the above outfit as well as many others. My reason for this is the hood on it, although this photo doesn't do it any justice... get yer dvd box set out and see for yourself why I love it so much!

One other outfit I wish I owned is the high waisted, emerald green skirt with the white ruffles on the back from an episode in Season Four... but I have yet to find out who that skirt is by or find a photo of it... anyone?

This was a quick post but my question is: if you do, what is your favourite outfit from Sex and the City?

PS. Enjoy?! Follow me and ill follow you!!!


Outfit of the Day

Hi All!!

Here's another work outfit from yesterday....

Top: Primark
Handmade Belt: The Clothes Show
Bracelet: Primark
Skirt: Primark

Here is close up of the belt just so you can see the quality of it. If I remember correctly the designer said it was made from Pig skin... I wish i'd kept my compact map of The Clothes Show 2008 so I could have mentioned who the designer was. And also so I could purchase another belt... I love this one :o)

Tights: Boots
Shoes: Primark

And here's how I painted my face.....

So there you have it, another Primark special outfit, I sure do love that place :o)
PS. Enjoy? If so follow me and i'll follow you!

Site of the Month

Site of the month is: Dressed by Danni

Ever heard of a backless hoody? No?! Well if you havent before, you have now! I was given my first one for my 22nd birthday last year by my ex. Trust me when i say I begged him to buy it me and here it is...

Unfortunately my camera is currently having a hissy fit so I couldn't take any photos of it without a top on underneath to show you the full effect.. the above photos are from my 22nd birthday last year and im wearing a boob tube underneath.

If you take a look on Danni's website you will see that she has some cool items you can buy, but my fav items are the backless hoodies. Purely for the fact that you wont be able to buy these anywhere else probably? (unless there is some hidden gem somewhere in the UK that does sell them?) I love the fact that Danni will also customize an old tshirt into a backless hoody for you aswell!! So if there is an old top you have lying around that you'd like to do more with, she could make you a one off piece that no one else will ever have!!

I'm a big fan of unique/one of a kind things, so when I first came across this designer I knew I had to have one of her designs!! I have been in contact with Danni myself via her myspace profile, as I wanted her to know that I wore her design to the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham December 2008 and that I received around 10 compliments at least!!! on my hoody and where it was from (no word of a lie) :o) She was dead chuffed and offered me discount for my next purchase *whoop*

I reckon you gals should and order yourselves one soonish!!

Ps Enjoy?? Follow me and if you have a blog, i'll follow you!
