Glossybox July 2014 | Stars & Stripes

Themed beauty boxes are my favourite kind of box! I get a tad more excited when I open up the packaging to find a pretty themed box. I love this stars & stripes theme. This is again a great box...Glossybox* are definitely on a roll with great boxes.

From what I have seen, every box this month includes a Bellapierre lipstick (Full Size £20). The one I have is Mandaring which is pretty coraly-orange. I really love the colour and I'm sure I will definitely get lots of wear out of it while the weather is nice.
This Tarte Lights, camera, lashes 4 in 1 mascara was the item that had me most excited this month. I have seen lots of people rave about Tarte. This is the first time I have tired a product from them and I am super happy it is mascara....My favourite make up product. (sample size)

Carmex lip balm. You can never have too much lip balm. Carmex is great and one I have used for years. Another full size product.£2.69p

Absolute New York eyeshadow primer - I am really happy to see this inside this months box. My current eye primer is about to run out so it nice to try a different brand. This is full size at $4.99.

Finally this Color club- Glossy seal nail polish.
This is a glossybox exclusive!
This colour was especially made for this month box.
I like the colour for the colder months I'm sure I will get alot of wear out of it around Christmas time.
Full size $8

Another great month

Picture of the week #3

We have had a lot happening this week with it being the last week of school.
. Cambell learnt to ride his bike with 
out stabilisers which made him very 
happy he was telling all the teachers at school.
We have been to 2 school fairs, I have been for 2 school dinners- one with Cambell to he could see what it was like for when he starts in September and with Jake as the school dinners have recently changed so we were invited up to try them. Cambell had his graduation from nursery too with was really nice they were all given a book from the teachers and a certificate.

Park Fun...

I love taking these little beauties to the park, we normally call before Cambell goes to school on an afternoon as it is right next to the school. Emme absolutely love the swings, once she on there is no getting her out! We used to have a baby swing in the garden when the the boys were little but I think we gave to Jason's mum for his little sister but I'm thinking we should get a new one for her. 
Cambell just goes crazy and runs around to ever different thing with his friends. I can not wait until the summer holiday start, I love the boys being home and being able to go out on days out. I have lots planned for this summer. We really want to go back to Isle of Wight again but its going to be hard working out a date to go now with the boys both being in full time school in September and Jason can only have his set 18 days off after 7 Shift sets so he cant pick his holiday dates :(.

GlossyBox | June 2014

This months *Glossybox is possibly the best so far!?
I feel like they are now just getting better and better every month. This month has FOUR full size products....amazing products at that. I love when I get a box and want to use everything in it, this is definitely one of those boxes.

Teeez Trend Cosmetics | Beautiful flat stiff brush
 This is a lovely brush, I really like their packaging and the design on the brush. I am so addicted to make up brushes so I'm very happy to have this one in my collection.

Nailsgirls | 3-in-1 
Again I love my nail polish, I have alot of coloured nail polish but no clear left I ran out and never got around to buying more so this is definitely a needed product! My post about my nail polish is here,It definitely needs updating as i have now painted the rack we made so it looks so much better.

So Susan Concealer Quad
Concealer is a daily must for me so I can never have enough! I'm really looking forward to trying out this quad as I've never tried any So Susan products before, although after seeing the blusher that came in other boxes I think I will be ordering more!

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes
If i could only use one make up item for the rest of my lift it would be mascara 100%. I love mascara and trying different ones out to see which make my lashes look the best. I cannot wait to try this one out definitely a favourite from the box.

Rituals Qi Gong 24 Hour Anti-antiperspirant spray
I absolutely love this, it smells lovely and I definitely want to re-order. I would of loved this to have been a full size can .

I am really happy with this months box and hope next months is this good! 
Great work Glossybox!

More Videos...

I feel like I have been ill for so long! I went to the dentist for a filling and ended up with the work tooth ache for about 3 weeks, I had to have antibiotics and I'm not having to have to tooth out because it caused an abscess under my tooth. Ugh. Then for the last two weeks I have had tonsillitis which was just great! I'm finally feeling better and catching up on everything I have been wanting to catch up on. I have lots of great posts to do and an amazing fake tan giveaway coming up.
I cant remember if I have mentioned it on here at all but I know I have had lots of advice from everyone on instagram/twitter about the problem we have had with Cambell's place in reception for September but basically when I sent the application form off last year they never received it so I've also been trying to sort that out. We wanted him to stay at the same school he has been at for the last two years with his brother as I obviously couldn't get to two school at the same time everyday but thankfully its all been sorted and he has a place!!
I have been so busy with The Bow Boutique too, it's nearly our 1st birthday so that is super exciting for us! We have a stall at a fair in a few weeks so we are getting things sorted for that too and hoping to do The Baby and Toddler show again in September. 
I was watching all our old videos last night with the boys and it made us want to go back to Isle of Wight NOW! I can't wait to book again, we try to go every year. It's such a nice place to take the kiddy's and Jason has family down there so he has been going since he was little. All the random Christmas videos we did were so nice to look back on too, makes me wish id of kept it up and done it everyday. The boys look so young, I'm so glad we have them. I do them as family videos so that when they are older they can look back on then like the ones I have from when I was little but we all agreed that we need to do more of them now as I don't have too many really recent ones so as soon as I have a new phone charger I'm going to start..... I hate iphone chargers! I've been through so many.

Our days out - Tropical world

We love taking the boys and Emme on days out, when we have days when we are all at home we try going out and doing something together. We have taken them to Tropical world a few times as its not that far from us, they love it and its very affordable to get in. There's lots of different animals for them too see from butterfly's to snakes and meerkats . Its lovely too have a walk outside to they have lovely grounds and there is a big park across they road with play area.

It is super hot and humid inside so I prefer to go on warmer days when you have shorts and t-shirt on or something. We've been a few times in winter and it feels so stuffy when you have jeans and jumpers on. 

It was really good for the boys to learn about the different animals, they have little boards with facts about each amimal and where they are from which was great for them to read.

Favourite Mac Lipsticks

I have been sorting though my make up this week and re-discovering old favourites. I feel like I don't wear lipstick as often anymore since I've been up and out of the house for the school runs. Although I definitely like to find one out on a weekend or when we are going out. I have that feeling of wanting to go out and buy massive amounts of make up at the minute and get everything new. I wanted to show a few of my favourite Mac lipsticks although I know theirs a million different blogs/yt videos about them. I have so many dotted around the house and in different bags but these are some of the best (including creme d' nude and lady gaga).

Myth - Myth was the first mac lipstick I ever purchased (obviously this is a newer one) wayyy back when I first discovered youtube- maybe even before blogs. It's the perfect nude lipstick and I still love it just as much. It is a pinky toned nude with a creamy satin finish.

Archetype- This one is really pretty on and it has more of a shine look like you have lipgloss on too. It is more of a yellowy tone rather than pinky like myth and it has a lustre finish.

Laugh a lot- This is one I haven't worn quite as much as the other too (along with blankety*not shown here*) although it is a pretty colour, I find is a little dark for me. It does look lovely with a gloss over to brighten it up.This is more of a plummier pink and again a lustre finish.

Ravashing- I was so happy to get this one, it is more of a peachy/orange with warm undertones - lovely for summer. This one has a luminous finish.

Angle - Another biggie in the blogging/YT world. I can totally see why... I have 2! It is a light/medium rosy pink and is so beautiful on.  It is a lovely natural looking colour. Frost Finish.

St Germain- This along with lady gaga is my favourite brighter pink shade. I wore this everyday for so long. It had a blue undertone and is opaque. Again lovely with a glossy over- I really want the St Germain gloss. Amplified creme finish.

Impassioned- A huge favourite for nights out. This is more of a neony coral/red. It is creamy and easy to apply with a amplified creme finish.

I have so many other mac lipstick I want to purchase, the list is never ending! 
Which is your favourite lipstick?
Is there any you would recommend?

The Kärcher SC2.500C Steam Cleaner

Over the last week or so I have been trying out the Kärcher SC2.500C Steam Cleaner. An absolutely amazing product! I have use a steam cleaner before but it was just a standard one that works on floors, Karcher sc2.500c is a steamer that has lots of different attachments with it which makes it usable for anything and everything. It also kills 99.9% of bacteria while being so much saver than using other cleaning products as all you are using is tap water. 

As soon as it came i opened it straight up and wanted to get stared although I was a bit wary as I'm useless at putting things together and normally wait for Jason but I couldn't resist! It was super easy to do and the instructions were pretty straight forward. All you have to do it fill the water tank up which is on the top, fit in the adapter that you want to use and your off. There is a safety catch on the handle along with two steam settings. you have to keep the handle pressed down for the stream to come out so you have full control.

Standard accessories

  • Childproof safety lock
  • Safety valve
  • Steam flow regulation, on handle
  • Integrated funnel
  • 2-tank system
  • Parking position
  • Steam hose with gun, 2 m
  • Detail nozzle
  • Hand tool
  • Round brush, black, 1 piece(s)
  • Terry cloth cover for hand tool, 2 piece(s)
  • Terry floor cloth, 2 piece(s)
  • Floor tool
  • Integrated on / off switch

There are lots of extras you can buy separately to add to the streamer too which i favourite one being that it can be used as a wall paper stripper!I am hoping to change to paper in our room soon so this had me excited *i know, i know.*

One of my favourite attachments is the tiny little brush which is amazing at getting to them annoying little bits of dirt that hide in the corners. I hate it so much and normal get a tooth brush and try and scrub it out so I was really looking forward to seeing how well the steamer would do on them areas and just as I'd hope it got them clean with in seconds! 

I have being using the streamer every where I possible can and it is now and forever will be the bigger used item when cleaning everyday. On the first night it arrived I tested it out on the tiles in the kitchen above the cooker and I've never seen then so shiny and in between it tiles so white, even using bleach doesn't come anywhere close.
My partner loves a gadget so I knew he would love this and would have to test it out...sure enough as soon as he walked in the house he had it out and cleaned our leather sofa's... they looked so nice and new! a few days before we had actually ordered new fabric sofa's because I hated cleaning the leather ones they get dirty so fast and its hard to scrub it off but once he'd used the on it we both sort of looked at each other and said how much it looked like a brand new sofa and how easy it was just using  the little pad!

I have also used it on my oven, skirting boards. glass windows, doors, radiators, shower, sinks bath,Lino, wood floors,  Emme's high chair... I could go on. 

It worked really week for cleaning Emme's high chair as i give her weatabix or porridge for breakfast and I'm sure all you mummy's know how much of a really pain it can be to get off once it start's drying but the streamer get it off quickly and which no use of the chemicals around baby things!

Now the price is quite high at £232.09 but it is something that you can use on everything and that you will have along time which i think it is 100% worth with the amount of times I will use it so I know I will get the money's worth from it, it can be a bit of an investment so I'd make sure you know you would get good use out of it but it is definitely a great product. 

*I did have a before and after video showing the difference's but it will not load on blogger so I am going to re-do it and i will add it very soon*

Nona Box | April

This box is 100% the best I've had so far.Lots of good products have been included this month.
We have 7 full size items and they are all great! One thing with the Nona boxes though is that I've never had one that fits Emme's age/gender. Last month we got a blue newborn vest and hat set... it was a lovely set but wasn't a fit for Emme. This months box is a boy themed box but every thing is still usable for Emme so I don't think she will mind the blue.
I absolutely love the design on the dummy that was included, it looks so pretty and says 'I love mummy' I really like the mint colour of it. Emme loves it.
Next is a snooze baby comfort tag blanket. I know Emme will love this as she always had a blanket in her hand.
Mega blocks first builder buddy, again a boy but I'm sure she will play with it just as much & her brother will enjoy it too. I bought her a big mega blocks set at Christmas so this will be great for that.
Plum organic pouch, Emme loves these fruit pouches i have had a few before for while we are out, they are prefect to pop in your bag for a little snack while out and about.
Box of Plums Little Yums nibbly wafers, we have a few packs of these already, again great to take out. They are great especially if you have a younger baby who is just starting out with food.
Organic babies baby wash and shampoo. Always good to have, it smells of lavender which isn't my favourite scent but I love that it's organic.
Arbonne Intelligence cream I've never heard of this before but I'm looking forward to testing it out.

Overall i think this is a great box, lots of things Emme can try out. I really like when these boxes include little snacks. 


Those little fingers wanted that pouch haha

Plums | Little Yums

Emme has been trying out the new 'Little yums' from Plum
They are perfect little organic wafer snacks, I like to pop a pack in my bag when we go out. They have no added salt or salt which is much better than normal biscuits & have no artificial flavours or preservatives.I think they would be perfect from when you start to wean your baby as they dissolve easily and are easy to hold.They are designed to be the first snack for little teethers, great for when they want to keep biting to help them. The little yum wafers are made with wholegrain buckwheat, fruit & vegetables and certified organic.

Emme has being enjoying both flavours, they are our go to little snack at the minute and I will definitely be buying more.They come in 2 different flavours Pumpkin and banana & Spinach , Kale & apple.You get 6 packer per box each containing 3 large wafers.RRp £2.49.
