If you were to buy one thing from GOSH what would it be?

Sounds like an impossible question right? Well I'm trying to work out what I should get in the 3 for 2 offer currently on at Superdrug. I'd like you guys that read my blog (if you still do lol) to say what you think is the best product that they do.

Ooh one minor point you can't say Darling lipstick because it really is the 'darling' of Youtube and the blogs.

The reason I'm doing this is because I don't actually own anything from GOSH. I have been curious about it for a while now but have never really gone out of my way to buy something.

So yeah I hope some of you comment with your suggestions because in the end I think that's why we all blog and watch videos on YT because we like to see the products being tested by regular people. So I want to know what products from GOSH have worked for you, what did you love? On the flip side I'd also like to know what to stay away from, what products you think are even worth the trip into town!

Anyhoo thanks in advance guys and I'll write soon expect some very picture heavy posts over the weekend, I've accumulated a scary amount of stuff over recent weeks and just not had chance to get pictures and blog about it.

My very first contest!!

Hey guys I've decided to hold a contest, I'm not sure what the look/s will be yet or indeed if there will be looks to do. It will start when I hit 100 subscribers which seems a long way off (and is) but at least it will give me time to get some really cool prizes together.

Soooo what kind of prizes would you guys like to win? If I have any readers from the US maybe some GOSH and Barry M?

Let me know what you guys would consider good prizes and I'll see what I can do!

Sizzle or Fizzle aka hot or not!

I was a bit bored so I thought I'll do my version of a hot or not, loving not loving etc.

Ta da!! I'm probably copying someone after all there's only so many ways you can re jig hot or not!! So if something is sizzle-ing its awesome and if something is fizzle-ing it's not so cool people. We shall begin.


  • Henry Cavill - from The Tudors, the Dunhill ads and my daydreams please feel free to ogle this beast of a man.

Ok, did you take enough time to drool and then to compose yourself enough to read on?
  • TK Maxx - my long lost love, I could spend a good chunk of my Saturday in there in my non working youth but now I just run in on my dinner and check for any NYX and St Tropez bargains.
  • Living at my boyfriends house for a week and looking after his gorgeous dog Oliver whilst his family were on holiday, playing house is so much fun when it's just a test run!
  • Mooching round Cheshire Oaks for an afternoon and buying items that will be disclosed in a haul post later today hee hee!
  • Not having to care about crappy weather on bank holidays because I'm stuck in work (should this be a fizzle maybe?)
  • Awesome bargain jewellery!!
  • Having to decide on an appropriate outfit for meeting my boyfriends ENTIRE family!! So that would be something pastel and pretty and most importantly innocent looking!!
  • Crappy weather on bank holidays.
  • Watching Marley and Me and realising I could never own a dog because I was absolutely wailing at the end of that film :(
  • Having spent nearly all that's left of wages on jewellery!
Anyhoo I think that's about enough for tonight I shall return in the morning bright, refreshed and showing off my bargain bounty! Night all x x x x

NEW HAIR!!! and apologies for not blogging :(

Soooooo I've been rather absent of late (ok so maybe a month and a bit has flown by!) There has been lots of shopping in the past 5 or so weeks and I mean LOTS! I shall post pictures tomorrow because I have the whole day to myself to photograph all my gorgeous treasures.

Ok onto other news I have new hair!! eeep change is scary :O I'll put up a picture of my 'old' hair and my new shiny lovely hair. Yey I've gone from brown-ish to blonde again but not the scary platinum I once was, a nice golden-y 'natural' blonde. Well as natural as bleach can be hee hee.

Please excuse the scary-ness of this picture, this is about a month after I had my hair done and it still looks quite a rich brown and quite glossy in this pic. Alas after not having 'topped-up' my dye since it had faded to almost the bleach blonde of the past on the ends and three inches of natural colour roots!!!!Grim I know but I was spending my money on other things namely an awesome holiday to New York and the Caribbean so priorities people!
This picture now is of my hair in its current glory I'm in love with this it's gorgeous!! It's kind of a crappy picture but I was also trying (in vain) to show my make up for my FOTD!

We shall begin the FOTD dissection-
Face - Estee Lauder Skin Refinisher, Loreal Hydrafresh moisturiser and vaseline on lips. Revlon Vital radiance foundation, YSL Touche Eclat concealer for under eyes, to highlight cupids bow, sides of nostrils and as base for eyelids and Rimmel hide the blemish for the growths on my nose and chin! To finish a dusting of 17 Pressed powder in translucent? not sure what shade because the sticker isn't there!
Cheeks etc - Blonde msf to highlight cheekbones and Eyeko strawberry Fat Balm rubbed in with fingers for blush.
Lips - No 7 moisture drench lipstick dabbed on straight from tube as a stain then blot and applied another coat - Later on in the day I put on a few coats of 17 lipgloss in Barely Rose which looks like a shocking pink in the tube but comes out a soft candy-ish pink.
Eyes - No eyelash curler mine has gone walkies eep! No 7 360 mascara in black to top and bottom lashes and Loreal liquid liner in black along upper lash line with a little flick at the outer corner.
Nothing technical or adventurous just an average day really, anyhoo let me know what you think of the hair! Thanks for reading guys x x x x
