Shoes - Primark
Saturday, January 25, 2014
At the end of last year i entered a New Look competition where you had to recreate a red carpet look with items from New Looks party range, you can see my entry here, i couldn't believe it when i scooped the first prize of £100 New Look vouchers! I have only just got round to having a look in store and its a shop i don't usually buy a lot in but i am loving their spring/summer ranges and they have nailed the pastel colours trend! I also picked up this gorgeous plaid/tartan skirt from the kids section for £8 which is my bargain of the century! I would totally recommend looking in the kids section as the older ages are definitely equivalent to adult sizes. The best thing is none of these items cost me any money and i still have some vouchers left to spend yey!
I have already featured this in an outfit post but i bought this at the start of January and thought i would include it because this has now been put into the sale which im totally gutted about, i still don't mind as i really do love how sparkly it is!
Rogue City -
I posted about this gorgeous varsity jacket a couple of weeks ago but i am yet to wear this holographic beanie! I'm not too much of a hat wearer as they always make my head itchy, but this one isn't wool so i'm looking forward to wearing it when the weather is a bit colder!
Primark shoes are definitely my favourites, the copies they make of some shoes in Topshop are incredible like the Mary Janes and a massive fraction of the price! As for the dolly shoes i got these for a measly £3, black shoes always come in handy even if these don't last very long. My obsession with fluffy clothing still continues, Primark has such a great selection of pastel fluffy jumpers, i was after the pale yellow one but the lilac one is definitely more my colour!

For so long i have only ever used GHD straighteners for my hair, i think the fact that they are so widely used and known and because of how amazing they are! Because i have such long hair i guess i just always stick to what i know works best. But when i was asked to test out the Ko:Kou Pro Dallas hair straighteners i jumped at the chance to try out a different brand!

Diamond Mineral eye patch* - £10
I don't know about you but as the days in the week go by with early starts my eye bags get bigger and bigger and darker and darker, i'm still waiting for someone to ask me one day why i have bruises under my eyes! Thank god for concealer hey! I had a Garnier roll on to help with my dark circles a few years ago but to no avail, so I've never dabbled with any products since. Recently i was introduced to Diamond Blend Diamond mineral eye patches which are a treatment that claims to help instantly lift and rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes, and helping to remove patches of signs of ageing such as dark circles, and fading bags and wrinkles. I must say i have been very impressed with these!
Don't all line up at once boys!!

Hi everyone! Sorry for my very short absence from the blogging world, ive been very poorly but hopefully i will be on the mend soon! Albeit i haven't blogged for only a few days but i have really missed it and chatting with you all. Anyway, back in November i attended my first bloggers meet and Pearlys were one of the brands that had a little stall up demonstrating some of their products,i also got to meet the lovely Liz who runs the company! While i was there i got to try a teeth brighten powder which is almost like a scrub for the teeth which can be used weekly to help fade stains, i was really impressed with it especially as i didn't know such a product existed! I was lucky enough to also be sent a few of their other products to try out which i have been using for about a month now so i could have a proper chance to see how well the products worked for me and tell you all about them !(Sorry about the Christmas backdrop in the photos i took these a while ago!!).
Having white teeth is something that i think most people dream of,well i do anyway, in the past i have tried many at home treatments including Blanx which i reviewed here. I think with any at home treatment you have to appreciate it wont make your teeth as white as if you have a proper treatment done and it will take more time, although this is a much cheaper and much less abrasive way of doing it.Onto the products that i tested out:
Daily teeth whiten Foam* - The foam is placed on top of your normal toothbrush and i used this twice a day. The product has no bad taste to it all and unlike many teeth whitening products it caused no sensitivity to my teeth at all. Truthfully i don't think it has made a lot of difference to my teeth at all but i am aware that this product needs to be used for a while longer to see real results.
Daily teeth whiten rinse* - I don't normally use a mouth wash with my normal routine but i can definitely see the benefits from using one. It has a very strong minty taste which helped to make my mouth feel fresher for longer and this product helps to prevent further staining to the teeth and i would definitely repurchase for the cleaner feeling my teeth got from using it twice daily.
Teeth whitening pen* - The pen is meant for use maybe once or twice a week and a thin layer should be applied to your teeth while you are smiling, you have to keep the gel on for about a minute until it has dried and then it can be washed off. This is like nothing i have tried before and i was really looking forward to trying it out, as its only to be used once or twice a week i think again this is maybe something that needs to be used more long term but i am prepared to continue using it in the search for whiter teeth!
I hope you enjoyed reading my review on Pearlys and i hope you all have a great weekend! Have you tried any of their products before? What teeth whitening treatments do you use?
