OOTD - A Spring In My Step & A Happy Easter ♥

Happy Easter lovelies, I hope that wherever you are in the world you have a nice easter,
Plus its the one day where you never have to feel guilty about eating chocolate yay -
Easter is my second favourite day after Christmas.

Yesterday the sun stayed out all day for a change and it was a lot warmer than it has been recently, 
So I went out with my fiance, we went for some lunch at a gorgeous pub up near Dunham Massey, and I got a grilled sandwich, we then later did a little bit of shopping and visited the Cadbury's shop and got some chocolate - YUM,

I even picked up a gorgeous white butterfly ring cushion for our wedding - future post on this will be coming,

I wanted to wear something that made me feel like it was spring and not the horrible winter that it still feels like at the moment, urrrrgh, I am actually sick of this cold weather - it was a heat wave this time last year.
Coral is my favourite colour at the minute and I can't get enough of it, 
Along with butterflies which seem to be everywhere on print which isn't good for me cause I've suddenly developed an obsession with butterflies - that's a lie, I've always been obsessed,

My Mini Spring Primark Haul March 2013 ♥

Haven't I got a treat for you, two posts in one day.
I've been wanting to get this post up for almost two weeks now,
I went shopping as soon as payday arrived and the money landed in my bank.

This shopping trip was to only buy a few things but somehow it ended up with my buying a few things for my Wedding/holiday in Cyprus this year, so I'll get on with the post and show you what I bought.


I couldn't resist these sandals  I'm strictly saving them for 5 months or so and will wait till my holiday to wear there, probably for the evening.
They were £8.00 - the butterfly and daisy detail is so cute I just had to buy them.

Wedding Wislists - Bridal Shoes ♥

With almost 6 months to go, I can finaly start buying bits and bobs for my big day,
I'm one of them brides that likes to wait a little nearer the time before I start buying things, 
The only thing I seem to have bought in advance is my dress,
The next thing thats been on my list is bridal shoes - I am a little excited to be buying these since I loooove shoes - then again what girl doesn't,

When you read this post I will be with Rachel & Gina, were meeting up for the night tonight for a girly night and hopefully I will find my dream wedding shoes when we go shopping, so I can tick them off my list - here's hoping,

What is a little awkward is I've noticed is that not many places do white bridal shoes, most are ivory, so rather than looking for "bridal shoes" I've had to search for white or silver shoes to match my dress because my dress is white and there is some silver detail on it.

These are the top 5 shoes I have had my eyes on for the past 2 weeks when I have been looking and its been so hard to narrow it down to even 5 because I'm so picky and there is so many gorgeous pairs,

Girly Weekend & OOTD Plus Our Very First Vlog ♥

Last weekend, I got to spend a lovely weekend with Rachel and Gina again, 
We booked a night in the travel lodge for the one night as Rachel and Gina were off to see One Direction the next day - I was a teensy bit jealous if I'm honest, but my fiance had some spare tickets which he'd bought a few months before, there was only two and these girly's deserved it more,

We had a fun day shopping in Manchester, which involved my trying to look for wedding shoes - no luck :'(
I don't know how either but we didn't end up buying anything, mainly Manchester was busy but its very rare I shop in Primark and come out with nothing,

I did go back a few days later after pay day though - haul coming up in another future post.

We bought lots of sweeties and cocktails and planned to have a girly night after a visit to red hot buffet world, which was amazing as always - my stomach was actually hurting from laughing after spending the night with these two.

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama 24 Hour Gel Eyeliner - Intense Black ♥

When this eyeliner first came out, it was on my wish list to buy straight away, but being me, 
I tried to find a more purse friendly version, I did try the Rimmel gel eyeliner for a while - You can see that review here - but its not been a lasting favorite of mine,

A few weeks ago I decided I needed a new eyeliner so I treated myself and purchased the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Boots when they had there buy one get one half price offer.
I don't know why I didn't buy this sooner - this eyeliner is a god send.

Not only does the brush make it really easy to apply a cat flick for an everyday look, but its also lasts for 24 hours - 16 hours in my case,

Macadamia - Rejuvenating Shampoo & Moisturising Rinse ♥

Its been well over a week since I posted,  I have been so busy recently with work and I've fully thrown myself into wedding planning mode since its now officially half a year!!
So If I am a little quiet please excuse me,

Today Is a post that is a little delayed but it is something that I have wanted to test out fully before I write an honest review.

I've been using these Macadamia products for a few months now - I am already a fan of the hot oil which I use on the ends of my hair to nourish them after styling my hair.

Macadamia Oil is extremely good for the hair especially if you color and use heat on it a lot like I do.
These miniature bottles are perfect if you also want to try the product out like I did before buying the bigger bottled versions.

Beautiful Brows - Get The Perfect Eyebrows ♥

I was extremely lucky to win a competition over on twitter with the company Beautiful Brows,
They sent me this complete bows kit which I was thrilled with as its something I know I will get lots of use out of since I enhance my eyebrows everyday,

This set retails at £35.00 on the website and it a quality kit to achieve the perfect eyebrows for all different occasions,
Below is what I got in the kit - I haven't stopped using this now since I first bought it,

Beautiful Brows have appeared on catwalks models creating key looks which I think is a little exciting because I love experimenting with different looks myself,

Laser Hair Removal "The Benefits" ♥

This post is a little different to what I normally post about on a weekly basis but I know not everyone knows the benefits of  laser hair removal, but I thought its a topic I should talk about since not everyone is clued up on what it is and how its done.

As used by many celebs, laser hair removal is one of the best ways of removing unwanted hairs from most common problem areas - personally I've always dreamt of silky smooth legs seen on the likes of some gorgeous celebs such as Rhianna and Katy Perry - I would love to be as perfectly groomed as they are 24/7


What are the benefits of Laser hair removal?

Well as well as not having to shave your legs every couple of days - men have it so easy sometimes,
Removing hair by laser is the quickest and easiest painless way to remove the unwanted hair - forget waxing "ouch"

One of the downsides of shaving is the hair grows back after a few days and sometimes thicker.
I find it a nightmare when I go on holiday for two weeks or more, you can't wear jeans in 30 degree heat,


Most people choose laser hair removal to also remove unwanted hairs from places they find troublesome such as there face, body, legs, underarms - the list can go on, this can be a confident boost for some people too especially if its something your uncomfortable with.


So how is laser hair removal done some of you may be wondering??

Hair removal by laser is done by focusing a laser beam at the base of the hair follicle which stops the hair growth, which is quick and painless - whats more perfect than that,

Although its not done in one session, it can take up-to 15 to 45 minutes sessions and up-to around 8 months to get the best results and be hair free, everyone's skin if different so when you see a consultant you will be advised what is perfect for you and what steps you need to take,

If this is something you'd ever be interested in - I know I would be - I'd give it a go.
  
What are your thoughts on Laser hair removal girls - would you or have you ever had it done?

OOTD - Aztec Midi Dress- Karma Clothing ♥

 I've always been a little scared to try the "midi dress" back in the day you would of never even of got me in a maxi dress - until I tried one of course and they are now usually what I live in during the summer,

The newer trend which has taken off this season is the midi dress, there are so many styles about,
The midi dress I'm wearing in this OOTD is from Karma Clothing, they are an affordable online shop that sell some really pretty pieces of clothing and definitely fit everyone's budget, especially mine.

This dress retails for only £8.99 - How fab is that? - You can find it on there online shop here along with lots of other pretty midi dresses,

Aztec print is big this season too and I've seen it everywhere, all over tops, bags and shorts,

I think I will have to wait for the warmer weather to wear this dress since I'd feel like Lily Allen wearing converse or pumps with mine, maybe it could work, i still need to buy a pair since flats are really more my kind of shoe, I much prefer the classier evening look with heels or the more casual everyday look with sandals for when the weather gets warmer.

Colour Maker Coloured Contact Lenses ♥

I am a contact lense wearer and I probably couldn't ever wear glasses ever again if I had to - only during the evening when I get tired, 
I think they are really comfortable to wear and I forget I am wearing them half the time.


I was asked if I wanted to try these colored lenses by Innova ColourMaker by Vision Direct Contact Lenses
They come in a range of colours, percripted and non perscripted, 
So even if your terribly short sighted like me you can change you eye colour.

OOTD - China Peplum Primark Top & Safe Haven ♥

I hope your all having a lovely weekend, right now I'm watching Ant & Decs Saturday Night Takeaway,
Thank god there is a reason to watch tele on a Saturday night,
Last night I went out with a few of my girls to watch the new film "Save Haven"
We had a bit of lunch before watching the film,

This is my OOTD, 
I bought this top last weekend from my trip to Primark at Meadow Hall, it was only £7.00 and is so pretty,
It caught my eye straight away because the print really reminded me of a plate set my mum had, I know that sounds like a really weird reason to buy a top but I loved the designs on them plates,
Some of you may know what I'm on about, either that or I'm a weirdo,

Its made out of a thin stretchy material so I think it will be ideal to wear in the summer.
I know Primark had some long sleeved shirts with boats and carousals on them which I fell in love with, but long sleeved shirts just don't suit me.
