Lily Cole for Body Shop

Hey beauties, I went into oxford today for an interview at Debenhams which probably went horrific as I have a chest infection but fingers crossed as I love it in there. But afterwards I felt in dyer need for some retail therapy, so I stopped by the Body Shop and saw this.
Lip and Cheek Blush Dome
This was really hard to swatch as the colour is really build-able but can look a bit scary. Its a creamy blush which I really like, but if you apply to the lips it gives a slightly more matte finish. Pretty pricey at £10 for 10 ml but I think this will look great for summer.
Have you tried any Lily Cole products?

Loves & Hates

Hello loveliess! 
I just wanted to share a couple love and hate products right now, more loves though!
I am loving Benefit's 'They're Real' mascara, I got this for my birthday but wanted to use my other mascara up first. It's a does what it says on the tin job. Absolutely brill, and instead of using 2 or 3 different mascaras on a night out all I need is this baby! - £18.00

When I bought Benefit's mascara I got given a free sample of Benefit's PoreFessional, this nude coloured serum is meant to reduce the size of pores, but for me it didn't do anything of the sort. It just made my skin look awfully flaky and after about an hour my skin felt so so dry. It might just be my skin type but if you have dry skin like me, don't buy this full size!

The Daily Smooth Body Butter from Soap & Glory, this was in a little goodie bag my godmum gave me a few weeks ago, now I love love love the smell of Soap and Glory body lotions as I think most girls do. This lotion claims to beat dry skin and this actually works for me, I've been using it on my hands and feet for about a week now and already feeling/seeing great results. 

Now a bit of a disappointment product really, surprisingly from Soap & Glory.. The Gladpits Anti-Perspirant. For some reason I had great expectations for this deodorant, maybe because all the rest of S&G products are fab?! But anyways, it promises no white streaks (lie) it kind've hurt my skin yet claims to have soothing aloe vera? hmm.. And also the fragrance doesn't last very long at all. :( Shame as I love Soap & Glory! 
What do you think of these products? Do you agree/disagree? 
Lots of love, Elsy xx

Selling a Pandora Bracelet!

Hey my lovelies, just thought I'd let you know I'm selling a brand new Pandora bracelet on Ebay, if you want to have a lookie heres the link: Pandora Bracelet
I got given it as a pressie and didn't really think it was 'me' so it's up for grabs, originally it's worth £140, because it's complete with a charm, but I'm selling it for only a fraction of the price! 
I hope your having a good monday!

NOTD- Jan Christie

Hello lovelies, I ordered some Jan Christie nail stickers after reading Zoella's blog post & they are uh-maz-ing! Here's some photos:
  I used Barry M nail varnish in Berry as the base, (lighter colours work better than dark). I also went for this set of flower stickers and a butterfly pack. The letter you receive with them is so very informative & I also got sent a mini pack of free samples which was lovely! There is a fab range and there all so inexpensive, also VERY speedy delivery. Absolutely brill! 
Here's the link to the website if your interested: Jan Christie
Hope your having a good week lovelies!

Three items for £20 - say what?!

Hey guys! How are you all dealing with this crazy weather of peek-a-boo sun/hail/rain/thunder?
To be honest I'm glad I'm snuggled up in bed, complete with boyfriend-cooking, laptop, pjs and the guilty pleasure of listening to Justin Bieber- Boyfriend on repeat! 
So anyways, here is what I wanted to show you, I went to a huge New Look with my mum as I was given a voucher for my birthday. To my amazing surprise there was a sale!

 This dress was hidden deep in the sale rack, and as soon as I saw it I loved it. It fits like a glove, and I love the fact that it has a high neck line and shows a lot of leg. Not bad for a tenner!

 I love both zip statements on the dress and this skirt, they can be a bit daunting especially when the zip goes all the way down the skirt! But I think it spices up the simpleness of the skirt. -£7
Cant go wrong with some £3 knickers! 
All in all I'm happs with my lot, and a here's heads up on that new look sale! Go go go!
Lots of love Elsy xxx
