A Girl Shoud Be Two Things. Classy & Fabulous.

Good Friday Great Haul!!

Hello lovelies! Hope you're enjoying the Easter hols!!! I must say the sun makes an excellent change to usual bank holidays we enjoy in rainy Britain. I usually spend my bank holidays bored out of my wits flicking through day time movies or reorganising my itunes library... Something that passes the day and moves it along, whilst the grey skies add to the dragging on effect and the harsh wind knocks firmly on my windows. However this Easter has blessed us with a rare bit of sunshine and glorious weather, making it impossible to consider staying indoors.

So I rushed off early this morning to my local shopping centre and picked up a few beauty goodies. I've done alot of clothes shopping online (haul coming soon) so I made it strictly beauty today, and resisted the gorgeous dresses in H&M and Newlook (Newlook have stepped it up recently *thumbs up*).


To me the quality of Revlon products almost rivals that of the high end brands, which probably explains why the brands products are priced a bit more steeply priced than most other high street brands. I picked up a Super Lustrous Matte lipstick in Smoked Peach, a Colour Burst lip gloss in Peony (new) and from their new S/S collection I picked up Blue Lagoon nail varnish.

Peony glitters away on the left, as u can see the colour is a mix of dusky rose whilst in the light it glimmers almost coral. Smoked peach on the right is a gorgeous salmon pink with slight orangey tones, as with all other Revlon Matte lipsticks the colour goes on very matte and opaque, yet still soft and creamy.


My local Boots has recently opened a Chanel counter, I don't know whether this is going to be a good thing or a bad thing for me yet. I cant deny I was excited, but my purse strings certainly gave a deep sigh, knowing indeed that I will be back more often than not. I couldn't resist picking up one of the fabulous Coco Rouge Lipsticks, it wasn't even up for discussion, I had to! My colour of choice was the fantastic Evasion.

Evasion is a gorgeous baby pink/peach shade, all lipsticks in the Coco Rouge Shine range apply beautifully sheer making them perfect for daytime wear. And lets face it you're going to enjoy pulling out a little piece of luxury whilst touching up your make up on the train.


I made two repurchase today of two items, both of which I must have first picked up three months ago. The Clinique Superfine Brow Liner in 03 Deep Brown and The Body Shop's Clarifying Seaweed Toner.

No other Brow products do it for me the way the Clinique brow pencil does, my brows look groomed and sharp, but never harsh or over drawn. The Seaweed toner is amazing on my combination skin, it helps balance oil, leave my skin refreshed and normal, whilst not being to harsh or drying out my skin which I find most toners geared towards combination skin tend to do.

After my little spree I retreated home to play with my new gifts and then enjoyed a couple glasses of already mixed pinacolada in the garden... classy ay! Tonight I think I'll  enjoy Good Friday a little gracefully and treat my mummy by taking her to dinner.

Have you guys tried or are looking forward to trying any of the products listed above? And how will you be spending your Easter Holiday in this gorgeous weather?

Stay safe and hydrated guys ;-)

Going Organix

I have been using the Vanilla Silk shampoo and conditioner by Organix, once a week for about two months now. I first spotted this combo in Boots one day and in all honesty I was literally drawn in by the fact that it smelled like vanilla *shrugs*. But once I had used  both shampoo and conditioner and did my research on this brand I soon found that the smell was just one of the major bonuses of using these products.

The mantra of this brand is Beauty Pure And Simple, this already gives you an insight into ethics of this company. All Organix products are Sulphate and Paraben free, this allows the product to clean but not strip the hair, making it safe to use for those with chemically or colour treated hair. They are also made with active organic ingredients widening its suitability for all hair types.

The writing on both bottles reads:

Indulge your senses with this exclusive blend of smoothing Tahitian vanilla bean oils to instantly nourish and moisturize, while silk amino proteins strengthen and seal your hair’s cuticles, revitalizing your hair, creating silky, smooth shiny hair. Smoothing Tahitian Vanilla Bean oils blended with exotic silk amino proteins create a decadent treat. All you need for soft, smooth and seductive hair in one irresistible formula.

My personal opinion is definitely a positive one. My hair is very dry, coarse, damaged, colour treated... you name it I've got it. Yet despite all the things going against it the Organix Vanilla Silk shampoo and conditioner has left my hair soft, manageable and the smell is beyond amazing! As even after using my leave in conditioner and heat protecting spray, the lovely vanilla scent still lingers. Within the vanilla silk line there is also a soft & silky serum and blow dry cream available. There are also many other ranges available by Organix, including; coconut milk, cocoa butter and Moroccan argon oil to name but a few.

The vanilla silk shampoo and conditioner can be purchased at Boots. Some collections aren't available in the UK but most can be purchased online at Amazon.com. More information about the Organix Vanilla Silk shampoo and conditioner and all other Organix ranges can be found here: http://beautypureandsimple.com/vanillasilk.asp

Thank you guys for taking the time to read this and hopefully you've found this helpful. I hope you've been out enjoying the weather, catching tans and socialising, but if your like me and you have 101 commitments keeping you busy all week, then I hope you can make for it on the weekend like I will be doing =)

Wishing you guys a lovely day

Gone Madly For NARS

Hello lovely ladies! First of all let me begin for humbly apologising for the lack of posts for the past two months. I have been absolutely swamped; if it wasn't work, it was uni, if it wasn't uni, it was my attempt to have a life. But anyway regardless I am deeply regretful at the way I've neglected my blog, and I can promise you that the posts are going to be coming in thick and fast from here on out.

This week I picked up the blush Madly from NARS, the deep sandy bronzey blush attracted me instantly. I usually dump most of my peachy and pink blushes when the sun gets a bit stronger, and stick to my peachy bronzers to stand out on the apples of my cheeks.

I love the healthy glow this gives me, and needless to say the pigmentation is amazing! This is my second ever NARS blusher, my first being the highly coveted Orgasm, I'm loving the subtle glow that a NARS blush seems to inhabit. I will be posting images of me going mad with madly very soon!
