I said this last month but I think this could be the best Degustabox yet! they keep upping their game in my opinion. The day I received this I had just started my 3 day Juice cleanse ...oh the temptation, especially with all the yummy, naughty treats that came inside, it was slight torture to be honest. Usually I don't mind sharing my boxes but I had to save the bags of sweets and Reeses because I knew that once the boys got their hands on them I wouldn't get a look in.

Who wouldn't want a perfectly shiny, 2 week manicure in just 60 seconds from the comfort of your own home? this is exactly what the Gelled LED nail kit claims to offer. I have had a gel nail kit before by the brand Sensationail, I thought it was ok - it didn't last as long as I expected on the nails but the glossy gel finish was comparable to that at a salon.
When I was offered to test out this Gelled nail kit I thought it would be good to try and see how it compares to the other gel kit I own, this particular kit says there is no need for a basecoat or topcoat (unlike Sensationail) - just paint, cure and go.

If I was ever going to be scared of trying a beauty product, facial tanning would be it!..after all, you can hide a bodge body tanning job under your clothes, but when it comes to your face if its wrong you are pretty much screwed. Plus this specific one by Vita Liberata is a self tanning mask you leave on over night ..eeep! hence why I decided to trial this on the night before the day I wasn't going to leave the house - just because you never know.
The other product I have here is a self tanning bronzer, ive never seen or herd anything like it so I am excited to give you my thoughts on these.
Read on to see if it really was a disaster....

My obsession for the summer has been the sunglasses brand Quay Australia, I had seen them about for a while on social media, their unique and jazzy styles are what drew me in but i could never get my hands on them as they where sold only in Australia- it's always the way.
Then one day I noticed my lovely Blogger friend Serene (from IAmSereneL.com) sporting a pair of Quay Shades in the style 'Lana' on her instagram, I commented saying something along the lines of oh my god you have Q/A glasses how the hell did you get those?! she replied - Topshop! so obviously I hurried over to the site and there they where. That's where my

Last week I was contacted by the people at Shrinking Violet if I would be interested in trying their brand new inch loss product before its release date today. I will try anything once and I must admit I always get excited and curious about trying something new that helps aid weight loss, teas, shakes you name it but I can honestly say i've never heard of anything like Shrinking Violet. Apparently this is the latest celebrity craze and had been shouted about in the media as a "fantastic loss leader" and is clinically proven- this also caught my attention and made me more curious to try it out.

Many years back I tried an at home wax kit and I wasn't impressed at all, I got in a right sticky mess, I was left with red sore legs and barely any hair had been pulled out - all the pain with no effect, I deemed these kits pointless and haven't tried one since.
So when I was offered to give one a try again but in a roll on version as opposed to the strips I previously tried I thought why not! they are probably more likely to be a lot better than they used to be, and maybe I will have better skill at something like this now?! we will see..

In August I decided to switch up my skincare routine quite a bit, just because I was getting bad breakouts and thought it was time to try something new to see if anything could work better for my problem skin.
I have also been wearing less makeup and having more makeup free days to help, and lasts months favourites reflect that.
The products I really enjoyed and stood out for me in August where ..
