Its True ...Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish is Amazing!

Hello Lovelies,
Hope you have had a great week. I know you may have seen alot of Liz Earle reviews floating around lots of different blogs, but this is my take on the Ever so Famous Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.

I have seen so many reviews of this particular product and not one had a bad thing to say about it! some even branding it as their Holy Grail Product, and the more i read the more i wanted to try it and see for myself.
So about 3 months ago i was in a John Lewis store (not local to me) and spotted a Liz Earle counter and knew i just get my hands on a Cleanse and polish.

I walked to the counter and the sales lady was really lovely (which to me is a great first impression on the brand) she then asked if she could help me with anything, so i asked her if i could have a cleanse and polish, she asked if it was the first time i have used it and if i would like to give it a quick try (on my hand, may i add), the lady explained how to use it and all you need is 2 pumps of product 2 times a day will last you a month.

I didn't want to post about this product straight away as i wanted to give it some time to see how i actually felt about the product but yea...its love and now my HOLY GRAIL! and having a HG item is a first for me as i like to try whats out there. (No wonder why its won so many awards)

My skin looked lovely after a week or so using this i had friends asking me what i used on my skin, so it must be good for people to notice.. one of my friends Leanne from Lammy Loves said how good it looked and she was saying how desperate she was for finding something to help her skin as she was having a rough time with it, i had a weeks sample of Cleanse and polish so gave her that and she's now a convert!

2 weeks ago i ran out of Cleanse and Polish so i started using something else until i could restock as no where near me sells it :( and my skin went bad again i was desperate to get my hands on more so i made an order online link 
It should be here by Monday fingers crossed, i was browsing the site for more things to try i was thinking about the moisturiser and toner.

If you are thinking of trying this i would go for it! On the Liz Earle website you can order a Try me sized one with a muslin cloth for £5.50. 

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts? Do you have a Holy Grail Item?
Thanks for reading :)

Hello Lovelies, 
Just a quick post to introduce my best friend Lam (no that's not her real name don't worry ..its actually Leanne..) she has just joined the bogging community, and i would love for you all to check out her blog Lammy Loves 
I have just been reading her first post (about a brilliant bargain hair care product) and i must say I'm pretty impressed) shes the loveliest person ever and has a great sense of humour, aswell as amazing style so I'm glad to give her a helping hand.
Leanne decided to set up a blog as shes always hearing me bashing on about mine and how much i love blogging and she wanted a piece of this :) as shes just as crazy about these kinda things as me.


She would love for anyone to check out her blog and bring forward their thoughts.
By the sounds of things shes got some really great posts coming up.



I wanted to write a post especially for her because this girl has the biggest heart and would seriously do anything for anyone.
After all that's what friends are for!
So if any of my lovely followers could please spare some time to check out Lammy Loves

Nail Art

Hello lovelies, hope your all well and having a great week.
I have recently just got the instagram app on my phone so if anyone has it and would like to follow @zoelouriri I'm kind of addicted to that at the moment, just like i have been with my nail art.
I have been playing alot with different colours and patterns, i found it really fun and rather therapeutic.

Here is a few of my creations
L-R Top to Bottom
  • Candy Stripes
  • Mint green polish with a pastel American flag as the accent nail
  • Pastel Baby pink nails with a sparkly pink accent nail (extremely girly)
  • Jazzy Aztec nails 
Some lovely girl contacted me and suggested i do a tutorial on how to achieve these designs, I'm not brave enough to give the youtube a go just yet but if anyone would like me to do an individual post showing how to do any of the above designs, i would be more than happy to do so :) ...so leave a comment below and let me know. Thank you . 



What do you think of nail art? fun or faffy?

Thanks For Reading :)

Models Own - Hed Kandi Nail Polish

Hello my lovelies,
Hope your all ok, I am going to show you a few of the Models Own nail polishes i got in boots the other day, they are part of the new Hed Kandi range.
I must say i have herd quite a bit about the Models Own nail polishes and they seem very popular so when i had a look at the lovely range of colours these had to be mine! They have so much choice i really want more now :(.

  l-R 
  • Beach Party - Bright Orange/Yellow
  • Balearic Cool - Bright Blue
  • Hedonist - Bright Red/Pink
Balearic Cool
Beach Party








Hedonist

If you love bright nail polishes you will love these !!
Hedonist and Beach party are the strongIfer colours because 2 coats and the colour will be exact where as the Balearic cool takes a few more coats, but the colours are lovely and so unique, i love having jazzy nail polish!
I find the only down fall of these polishes is that they dry almost matte, but that's nothing a swipe of top coat wont fix :)

There are 2 more from the Hed Kandi range which are both glitters i think one looks similar to OPI's Rainbow connection (review), so i painted my nails with Balearic Cool and tried out an accent nail to show you all using Rainbow Connection.
Here it is 
love this colour, 

What to you think of Models Own Hed Kandi Range? Whats your favourite models own nail polish?

March Favourites

Hello all :),
Hope you have had a great week so far, mine was a little more spesh than usual as it was my birthday on Monday! i had a great day out shopping with my fiance and my baby boy Alfie, and bought lots of nice clothes and make-up which i will share with you all soon.

So this is my very first "monthly favourites" post, i decided to give this a whirl because i absolutely love reading other people's...so why not do my own eh, so here it is ...

  •  Soap and Glory's The Breakfast Scrub (reviewed here link)
  • Models Own Eyelash Curler
  • Bourjois Volumizer Mascara
  • Soap and Glory's Righteous Butter
  • Revlon Lip Butter - Sweet Tart
Soap and Glorys The Breakfast Scrub
I mentioned in a previous post link about my slight obsession with scrubs i was having, and this Soap and Glory one made it to my favourites as i think its by far the best i have been using, i wont go into full detail because i have already wrote about it here if your interested.

Models Own Eyelash Curler
I got this a few weeks back, and its the first time I've probably ever used an eyelash curler..crazy i know.. its just the thought of putting that device on my eye lid and clamping down my eyelashes kinda freaked me out a bit. is it just me??
But after trying so many curling types of mascaras nothing really curled them like i wanted
(my eyelashes are straight, short and annoying )..and i took the plunge and bought one, boy do i wish i got one sooner, it makes such a difference and really opens up your eyes.

Bourjois Volumizer Mascara
I decided to get this after watching Tanya's YouTube Videos at pixi2woo, (i love her videos, she seems like such a lovely girl) i loved how fab her eyelashes looked when she used this particular mascara, and i remember her saying how it was one of her faves, so i felt the need to try it and i actually love it.
It has two steps, step one is if you want more of a natural flutter, and step two is if you want it a bit more dramatic.

Step 1
Step 2
Soap and Glory's Righteous Butter
I use this every day after a shower and i think its amazing and i know alot of other people love this too as its one of Soap and Glorys most popular products, 
The smell is so alike to the Miss Dior Chere Perfume which is my most favourite perfume ever so its almost obvious I'm going to love this :)
The butter itself is a brilliant consistency not to thick or too runny and it makes my skin feel like silk, i just love it!

Revlon Lip Butter - Sweet Tart
People are going crazy about the Revlon lip butters, so i was really excited to get my hands on 3 a few weeks back the shades i got where - Lollipop, Sweet Tart and Candy Apple...Sweet Tart is my most used one at the moment as i think its such a pretty shade of pink. They glide on really nicely and have great pigment to them and i really enjoy wearing them.


 
What are your favourite products so far? Have you tried any of these ? what are your thoughts? i would love to hear them.

Thanks for reading
