NARS Limited Edition Duo Eyeshadow in Fashion Rebel

Hey lovelies!
Another product I've been lucky to receive is the Nars Limited Edition Duo Eyeshadow in Fashion Rebel* from HQ Hair which consists of a bright yellow and purple eyeshadow as pictured below. As well as this they also sent me loads of samples and everyone knows just how much us #bbloggers love our samples!




I will be doing a look using this eyeshadow as it's quite amazing how nice both colours look on the eyes considering I'm a complete nude eye person!

Sigma Brush Dupes From Colorfulonline.com?!

Hey lovelies! If you saw my previous haul post/video from colorfulonline.com then you will have saw this Six Plus 12 Piece Brush Set before! Today I'm going to be comparing it to the Sigma Make Me Cool Essential Kit, although I don't actually own this brush set I'm going to compare the similarities through the pictures on their website.

BRUSH HOLDER
The first picture above and below show that both brush sets come in a brush holder which is sooo similar, it's the same colour, it fastens the same way, as well as having the logo in the same place!



THE BRUSHES
I've actually lined up the brushes exactly as they are on the Sigma website and the Six Plus Brush Set have the exact same brushes! Even the colour of the bristles are spot on with Sigmas! I couldn't believe this when I got opened the Six Plus Set, especially since the website itself sells onto companies and puts other companies logos on their products, for all we know this could be the Sigma brush set just without the logo and large price tag! As for softness, the Six Plus ones are amazing, if the Sigma ones are softer than I'd be super impressed!







PRICE
The Sigma brushes retail at $120/£79 on the Sigma website but you also have to pay £11 postage if you live in the UK so that's another thing to consider, however I know there are some UK stockists so you may not have to fork out for postage.
Whereas the Six Plus brushes are $28/£18 and are sooo much more affordable if you just want to try them out and see what use you get out of the brushes and if you use them none stop then you could splurge on the Sigma ones or simply just repurchase the Six Plus ones! If you don't like the blue brushes/holder then you can also get it in purple, just simply search 'Sixplus 12pcs' on colorfulonline.com and the two different colours should pop up!

I hope you liked this kind of post, if you have any questions or any make up dupes whether it be brushes or not then please leave a comment below as I'd love to know some more!

Sunglasses from Speckyfoureyes.com


Hey lovelies! Recently Speckyfoureyes.com contacted me and offered to send me some sunglasses of my choice and I instantly fell in love with these, they are so versatile and aren't toooo big for my small head (I think), which is normally an issue when sunglasses shopping. I've been wearing these non stop over the last week and a half due to British weather FINALLY being lovely and sunny and they have gone with every single outfit.


These 'Stylish Designer Sunglasses'* retail at £15 which I think is a average price that you would find in Topshop/River Island, maybe even a little bit less. I chose them in the colour cream but they are also available in black, lilac and red - the lilac ones are beautiful also! 

Now here are some cringy photos of me rocking the sunglasses!


What are your favourite sunglasses? Have you ever bought from Speckyfoureyes.com? Leave a comment below and let me know! :)

Get Ready With Me (GRWM) - NE Blogger Vintage Social Event!



Hey lovelies! If you saw yesterdays post about a Blogger event I recently attended then you may have realised I never included any pictures of me on the day, instead I recorded a GRWM video! I don't normally do my make up this heavy and only did so in order for it to last the entire day!

What do you think of this look? Would you like me to do more GRWM videos?

The NE Blogger Vintage Social Event

Hey lovelies! So not too long ago I attended the NE Blogger Vintage Social with my lovely friend Megan from thumbelinalillie.com who you may have heard me mention before - please pop over to her blog and let her know I sent you and vote for her in the cosmo blog awards if you like what you see :)
The event was ran by the North East Bloggers who are the lovely Amy and Shannon as well as some additional help from Katy. It was held at a beautiful little tea room called Serendipity which has the prettiest interior as pictured below! The writing on the door reminds me of Sabrina The Teenage Witch :') - blast from the past! 


After arriving we were dedicated to certain seats and weren't allowed to sit next to the people we arrived with as this was a social event therefore we had to socialise and meet other people - I absolutely loved this idea and the girls on my table were sooo nice and lovely, the conversation just flowed. The girls on my table were Tasha, Laura and Amy I'd definitely recommend checking out their blogs! We then ordered drinks and cake, we all got a slice of chocolate cake and I ordered a pot of tea which came with the cutest tea cosy!! Afterwards we played a game were we had to write a celebrities name on a sticky label and stick it on someone else's head and they had to guess what their label said by asking questions with yes/no answers, I was Katie Price :').

As well as having cake, tea and playing games there was also a hairdresser there offering to do different vintage roll hair styles, the pictures below are Megan being very brave and getting her hair done. Other pictures include a cute little business stall there called Senor Picklesworth which had the cutest dog themed products! The bottom middle picture is Tasha looking adorable with one of the gimmicks we were given to take pictures with!

And of course, in true event fashion, there was a giveaway and a goody bag! The giveaway included products from Serendipity itself, my online jewellery website as well as a Senor Picklesworth goody! I was very very lucky and won a rolling pin and pastry brush as pictured below which is available from Serendipity, the goody bag was amazing too! We were given a list of all the people and blogs who attended the event which is something really unique to do as it means we can all connect with each other even if we never spoke on the day. There was also a nail varnish, a benefit goody, a benefit magazine, a body shop tub which will be so handy when travelling and last but not least, a sweety mix from Sweet Home Alabama!

I just want to give a big big thanks to Amy, Shannon and Katy for putting on this amazing event and helping us bloggers bond and get to know one another a lot more :)! Oh and a big thanks to Megan for attending the event with me - don't forget to vote for her ;).

Thank you for reading, have you ever been to Serendipity before? How cute is the interior!?
