The lovely people at Charnos sent me some hold ups and tights to try. I was very excited when these arrived 🙂 I was sent a mixture of colours/styles/sizes so I could compare.
The first ones I decided to try were the hold ups, these were in a medium and we’re just slightly too big as I usually wear a small in most tights, saying that, they do have a rubberised strip on to keep them up so they managed to stay up 🙂
They were thin and sheer and looked lovely with a pink dress. I love the lace detail along the top of these and they are comfortable to wear.
The next pair I decided to try were the leaf design in a skin colour, these were medium to large. I love the colour and design on these and because the tights are stretchy the size didn’t matter too much, they managed to stay up and I plan on wearing these next time I go out for a meal!
The last pair share the same leafy design but in black and are a size small to medium. These fitted me very well as I am only 5ft 2. I love this design especially on the sheer black tights, these ones also look great with my pink dress, they have got to be my new fave tights!
As the winter is coming it’s a great time to experiment with different colours and styles of tights as I usually just wear plain black!
I would like to thank Clinomyn (www.twitter.com/clinomyn_uk) for giving me the chance to try this toothpaste. They were asking people to take part in their 14 day challenge to whiter teeth so I decided to give it a go as I have been looking for a way to make my teeth nicer for my wedding next summer. I hadn’t heard of this brand before, but I am always looking for new products to discover.
Excuse the rubbish pictures as I have always been self conscious of my mouth due to an accident when I was younger and I also have very small teeth! One of my front teeth is fake, I get a bit paranoid as it looks different to the rest!
You can see that they have changed slightly in colour and I am very pleased with the results. I have been using this toothpaste twice a day for 14 days now and will continue to use it 🙂
Most whitening toothpastes seem to have a funny taste but not this one, it leaves your mouth feeling minty fresh and it almost foams as you use it, it really feels like it is cleaning your whole mouth.
I would encourage anyone looking for whiter teeth but too scared to use anything with harsh chemicals to try this!
Just a quick post to show my bargain of the day…
£90 reduced to £24.99 🙂
I have been looking for silver/holographic shoes for a while and spotted these today in TKMaxx, I just had to buy them! They will be perfect for a night out with jeans/leggings or shorts/skirt with tights.
Currently hinting to Nick that we now need a night out so I can wear these!
It’s not just your face/body you need to moisturise, remember your hands! It’s important to treat the skin on your hands as you would your face. They are exposed to hot water, harsh detergents and the elements and easily show signs of ageing.
I decided to try a new hand cream and had seen great reviews for this one online. It’s a very rich texture and feels very nourishing but at the same time it’s non greasy. It’s lovely lavender fragrance is both fresh and relaxing.
An hour after application my hands still smelt heavenly and felt soft and smooth. I have been using this once a day over the last 3-4 days and my hands feel so soft!
You can purchase this on www.beautyexpert.co.uk and I am very tempted to try out some of their other products 🙂
I decided to jump on the bandwagon as everywhere I go on Twitter I see Makeup Revolution. I decided to order myself some lipsticks from Superdrug to see what the fuss was about. They were only £1 each, yes you read that correct, £1!!!
I ordered a mixture of shades as you can see below. I haven’t quite decided if I am brave enough to wear the blue yet! I swatched them all on my hand to show you the shades
From left to right : Immoral / Depraved / Rebel With Cause / Crime / Encore
They are lovely shades and come out quite creamy and feel moisturising. I have been wearing the middle one today and it has stayed on really well. I love the packaging as the lipsticks all show the colour on the lid, I think this is a great feature and the colours come out exactly as they look. I would recommend these to anyone and I will definitely buying more 🙂
