Lil Miss Shiny: Glossy Box for June!

Hi guys! I'm so sorry I haven't blogged in ages - I've still got exams left and I'm super stressed! I therefore decided to give myself an evening off! 

Last month, I read about the Glossy Box. The Glossy box is a company which sends you five miniature products for only £10 a month! I've subscribed to them so I will be receiving a gorgeous box with five new products every month. As a beauty blogger, I LOVE trying new products - and a mere £10 a month is a great way to do so!

Here is what I got this month:

1) Batiste dry shampoo - a lovely mini sized version! I love Batiste products - I definitely can't live without them - glad I got a travel sized one in my box :)

 OPI Extravagance nail polish - I've got it on right now - such a pretty colour!

 Bioeffect Serum - this stimulates the growth of new skin cells which can result in a great complexion and younger looking skin. I can't wait to try this out!

 Mama Mio body buff - This scrub has a gentle blend of Sweet Almond Oil, chamomile, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Pumise!

Lalique perfume - I'm not very fond of this perfume - it reminds me of aftershave!

I know some people received Rouge Bunny Rouge lip glosses in their boxes - I'm so jealous.

I may do a review on these products if I like them :)

You can buy your very own Glossy Box from here.

P.S I purchased the box with my own money :) Honest opinion, as always ;)

Lil Miss Outgoing: End of exams celebration

Ok.. so my exams haven't fully finished.. I have some on the 30th of June.. but that's kinda far away? Right?

Anyway, I went to my best boy mates' brothers' 18th birthday (who happens to be my sisters best boy mate) last night. It was a bar/club, which was quite far from my home! All in all, the music was great - and I was surprisingly extrovert (I'm usually really shy - especially in clubs lol).

Here are the photos from last night. I did a purple eyeshadow look. I usually wear bronze eyeshadows, therefore I decided to experiment a little :)

 My sis and I :) This photo looks better sideways lol.

Lil Miss Random: The effect of exams :$

  • Exams are looming, and exercise has gone down the drain. I hope I exercise tomorrow - all motivation seems to have resided somewhere else. The photo above is providing some sort of inspiration.
  • Exams also means lots of shopping - I guess the stress of exams is alleviated by a spot of retail therapy. 
  • I am in LOVE with Britain's Got Talent - exam stress also leads to prolonged procrastination. My favourite is Steven Hall. He is just awesome.

  • Speaking of retail therapy.. I've finally purchased the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I'm probably the last Beauty Blogger on Earth to buy it. I can't wait to do a review.
  •  I am in LOVE with Amie Skincare. Thank you for saving my skin.
  • In regards to skincare - using lemon juice on my face has helped clear my acne scars. 
  • I'm so excited about Zante - I keep nipping to Primark to buy pretty summer dresses. 

Hope you enjoyed this random ramble!!!
