September Glitterati

The This months glitterati as extra special for me this was the one year anniversary of me joining the glitterati and I was rewarded with a lovely glitterati pin and crown & glory compact mirror.

The main glitterati had a lovely theme obvious as soon as I opened and saw the cute little butterfly confetti. The theme of the month was butterflies and flowers.

The box was brimming once again with beautiful hair pieces. My favourite of the month are the amazing butterfly clips.

I also fell in love with the deep red roses head band to go with the black and white version I already possess from crown & glory.

Also life this purple flower crown the problem is I don't think I own anything which will go with it. Now I have an excuse to buy a new dress. 😆

Last but not least are these cute little leaf bobby pins I think they are amazing I love the colour.

Yoga bomb

My second bath bomb that I will have to say goodbye to is the yoga bomb from lush with its colourful surprise in the centre.

Monday, 7 September 2015


I loved this bath bomb but I am not that as sad to say good bye to karma only because I it turns my fingernails pink because I may have stayed in the bath a little too long. 


I also have to say goodbye to frozen, one of the newer bath bombs from lush  inspired by the movie Frozen and it smells fantastic.

Sky dancer

Another bath bomb I barely got to know was the new sky dancer bath bomb with its lovely almost sweet smell. I know it would become one of my favourites if I didn't have to give them up.😥


I now have to say good bye to intergalactic bath bomb  my favourite and the most glitter filled bath bomb from lush 

Bath bombs

This weekend I was very naughty and bought a large quantity of lush bath bombs as in about two weeks time I will be having my bath room changed into wet room so I will be loosing my bath which unfortunately means that I will no longer be able to use lush bath bombs.😢

So I thought I will do a bath bomb count down to say good bye to relaxing in bath after hard days work, so here is the first of the bath bombs I used and it's called the experimenter and was the strongest smelling bath bomb I have ever bought from lush it's such a shame I have say goodbye to it.

High light from style xl

Here are a few of the top high lights from style XL other than meeting a bunch of the most fabulous women I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

The best thing I enjoyed the most and took quite a bit from was the body positive work shop which was held on the second day of Style XL and was hosted by daisy from I will not wrap myself up in smocks and apologies blog it was very informative and thought provoking.

My fravourite outfit from the catwalk was this lovely bikini from chubby cartwheels, an American brand which sent a few items from there new collection and just love how quirky the bikini is.

I also fell in love with this dress from A Rose like this design which was her first collection of clothes she has deigned and she has done a fantastic job they look wonderful. I love how she has used different patterns and put them together and yet they look great. 

I also loved her see through kaftan dress which would be great to wear on holiday with a cute bikini or swimsuit. 

I also liked this dress from clairebella's closet which was a sneak peak of one of her own designs, the material looks lovely and I love the colour.

I also loved watching the model XL pageant during the evening my favourite category was when they had to make and outfit from either recycled materials or charity shop finds  and it had represent them as a person as well. They where all fantastic but then two that stood out to me was from Sarah and Sian (the winner of the pageant) who made dresses from paper and shopping bags yet they both looks amazing in them and did such a fabulous job.

August glitterati unboxing

This months glitterati was a collaboration with sugar and vice and the theme was obvious from the second I opened the box and saw the cute little Unicom sticker.

With this month there was a print which is so cute it on my side board on full display.

The second I opened completely all  I saw was a lot of glitter.

I love the rainbow glitter hair clip I can't wait to find a excuse to wear it.

I also love the the love Bobby pins which I know will go great with the nautical booby pins from the previous glitterati.

I am also in love with this unicorn wing hair slide which is very pretty I love how it shimmers in the light. 

I like the sugar and vice unicorn hair band but I know I won't get a chance to wear it as it has already been borrowed by sister and for some reason I do think it's going to be returned.

I am unsure about the unicorn hair extensions as I have never used before and it going to be a challenge to see how I am going to use them.

Proud sister at style xl

This weekend just gone I was at style xl with my sister April who was one of the lovely models for the event. she looked amazing the whole day and it was only her second time doing any type of modelling and I knew she was extremely nervous and excited for the event, but she did a great job.

April's first catwalk show was for Topsy Curvy and looked quite stunning in a black track suit with glitter detail. It was quite shock seeing her in a track suit as I don't think she has worn one since we had to for PE in high school, which was a little while ago. 

She also got to model for lady volumptous wearing there Cosette dress which she has had her eye on since it first came online and she did not want to change out of the dress  and  now I have been hinted at a number of times that it would be a great present for her upcoming birthday.

She also got to model for scarlet and Jo as a last minute add on as they thought she looked amazing in one of their new designs, which she was just trying on at the moment the other models where going on to the catwalk and so was basically thrown on to the cat walk.

I am most proud of her as she was one of the VIP models for Curvy Kate lingerie in the evening event. I know this took April courage as it was the first time she had ever done anything like this, she hasn't even worn a bikini before.

She looked fantastic even though she was incredibly nervous but yet still rock the catwalk in this cute baby doll and her mis match underwear set.

April was very brave and was an inspiration for a few of the other women at the event looking confident and fabulous all day. We can't wait for the next style hopefully next year as we had a blast.

July glitterati in boxing

I'm  Sorry haven't written a post for a little while now I have just started my new job woohoo! It amazing I'm not working as a receptionist for the mental health team and so far I am loving my new job.

A couple of weeks ago pretty much on my first day of my new job I received this months glitterati from crown and glory. This months theme took me a while to figure out it, at first I thought it might be food inspired as it has little hot dog on the sticker but nope that wasn't it and I was confused by the star confetti, I thought what's did hot dogs and stars have to do with each other.

I was still a little confused about the theme but the accessories did not confuse or disappoint me I loved them.

the lovely striped head scarf was the first thing that caught my attention I just adore the colour.

The doughnut hair slide it looked so delicious I can't wait to wear it. 

A Minnie Mouse hair clips not Mickey Mouse where so cute.

And my favourite from this box was the stars hair clip it looks so amazing on and goes well with just about anything.

It was now I figured the theme when I picked up the fabulous large bow hair band I could fully see the crepe paper in it red, white and blue and it clicked it was America/ 4th of July theme I felt like a idiot that it too me so long to figure out but I might have been a little distracted by all the pretty hair accessories.

Hopefully I will get my next post up quicker and I will try to make my past as regular as possible.

Lush goodie bag

After the lush VIP event we were given a goodie bag each as we went home, I was so excited to see what was in the bag I couldn't wait till I got home and so I open it on the train.

When I spend the bag inside was a box wrapped in one the of Lush's scarfs which are made from 100% recycled plastic yet they feel so soft.

To my surprise there was more than just a box but a few other items as well which included steeping stones foot scrub, rub rub rub shower scrub, Sakura bath bomb, mask of magnaminty face mask and sunblock sunscreen wash as well as the butterfly gift box.

The irony was that rub rub rub, mask of magnaminty and Sakura bath bomb were all my favourites and I had only bought a new set the previous week. 

I was a little more patient with opening the butterfly (mostly because it told me what was inside on the box) so I waited till I got home to open it. Inside the butterfly gift box is the sultana of soap and Ro's argon body conditioner, which I can't wait to try out.

Here a picture of everything I got from the lush VIP event including a few item I bought which where exclusive from the Oxford street branch brought over for a limited time.
