:: And the winner is..... ::

Poor Charlie had her work cut of for her trying to decide which one of you should win my giveaway but she managed.........Jeimy Calvo!


Congrats Jeimy! Hoping to hear from you soon as to get your prize sent! <3
Here was Jeimy's comment.....

" I would love so much to win because I don't have much handbags, just some neutral color ones and this one definitely calls for attention! It's beautiful, gorgeous color and the style is so original. And Hello Kitty, I am a die hard fan of her and I have a mini collection and this is absolutely adorable. She's my holy grail. Thank you for this opportunity."

To all of you that entered commiserations but fear not!
Thanks to YOUR support, this giveaway has been a success, so with that in mind I have decided to go bigger and better!!!!
I won't be holding the next giveaway for a few months but I can promise you all it will be a belter! I'm so excited about the main prize and I hope you guys will love it! I've decided to do a few different winners.(^_^)/

Ok,ok that's all I'm saying on the matter!! I don't want to give away too much! :P
Do any of you want to take a guess at what the prize might be?

In other news, I'm turning 25 tomorrow...........seriously, where the hell has the time gone? I still feel like a baby not an adult!!!! O_o


I always remember an hour felt like a lifetime in school, now I blink and a whole bloody days gone by!(Ok major exaggeration but you get the point I'm making.)
It's not that I think I'm old or anything but it kicks off so many questions like:

What have I actually done with my life so far?
I've never travelled, should I get my ass in gear and go somewhere?
What way do I want to go with my career?
Should I be less immature?
Should I buy a tank like I've always wanted too?

....and blah-dee, blah and so forth!

I got talking to a few others girls on this matter and it seems I'm not the only one that feels this way, could this be the dawning of the mid-twenties crisis?? O_o
 One thing I know for sure is I have two options. Wallow I'm my own depressive shit or get a grip and do something about it.
I'm thinking the latter but honestly I think I'll enjoy feeling sorry for myself this week.
Heck, let's get real! We are all human at the end of the day!

In other news, It's my birthday on Wednesday! WOOHOO!!
My sister Charlie had been trying to organise a surprise party for the people that can't make my Aberdeen trip but I had my staff night out so she had to tell me about it. (How sweet right?!)

So here's all the Time crew out hitting Inverness.......

 (I was laughing for ages at Steven in this photo...he looks like he's totally bombing the picture!LOL!)


We scrub up well don't we? (^_^)/

So after dinner I stayed for one drink and then headed up to Charlie's flat. She had put up banners and balloons, it was SOOOOOO cute! No one has ever organised something like this for me before!

                              (Me and Charlie)

(Totally loving my new silver skinnys! Only £24 from H&M)

(The guys after a few strong ones! Yes the guy on that card is nearly naked haha!)

I had an amazing night!!!
Roll on Saturday for my birthday part 2! But what to wear???! Lol, FML! ;)

:: Rimmel 1000 Kisses Review ::

Tried this out yet?

       (Sorry about the shite picture quality, was using the webcam!)

This is Rimmel's 1000 kisses lip tint!
I saw it whilst shopping, I'm not really a lover of lip tints/lipsticks but the balm got my attention.
So what's the deal with it anyway I hear you ask?

Basically, the colour 'stains' your lips for a few hours while the balm keeps them nice and moisturised. It comes in 6 shades. (Better picture below, showing 5 of them....you get the idea though.)


I chose Endless Blossom, which is like a pinkie colour.

I wanted to test the staying power of the stain, so although Rimmel don't state how long it will last like other products on the market I thought a day at work without reapplying the stain would be a good indicator. (I did reapply the balm though, like I said my lips get quite dry.)

Here's me applying at 8:30am....


.....and here's how I looked when I got home. (Excuse the spots!)


So you can see it faded quite a bit.
That being said, for most of the day the girls at work kept commenting on my lip colour and it was still going strong at midday! I think you'd only have to reapply 2-3 times a day at most to keep the colour strong.
The best part was my lips felt hydrated and no matter how many times I put the balm on, I barely saw any of the colour coming off!
The one thing I forgot to mention: Once you put the tint on leave it a few seconds to dry before applying the balm, you get more staying power that way!


I have to admit I love this product! It's lightweight, moisturising and comes in super cute colours.....I want them all!! At £6.99 who could say no?
I definite 4 kisses out of 5!  ;)

Have you tried it yet? Thoughts?

:: Gyaru Tag ::

Hello all!

I made my first video today!
I don't know If any of you have heard of a gal named Chaudie from the US but she has started a gyaru tag on youtube so I thought I'd join in!

                               (Me just before making the video!)

I was pretty dam nervous to say the least but I thought it would be fun and a great way to meet other gals!
Thinking of having a go yourself? It's really easy!
Just upload a video with the answers to the questions (below) and put it as a response video to Chaudie's gyaru tag video! (I'll put links below too.)


1. What's your name/nickname?
2. Do you have a blog?
3. What does Gyaru mean to you?
4. What do you like best about Gyaru?
5. What do you dislike about Gyaru?
6. How do the people (family, friends, neighbours, etc) respond to your look?
7. Which Gyaru magazine is your favourite?
8. Who is your favourite Gyaru model or Shop Staff?
9. Which Gyaru blogs do you like to read?
10. How long do you see yourself being Gal?

If your still a bit unsure here's my video to give you an idea(my voice sounds so funny when I hear it back!lol!)

It wasn't as scary as I thought it was going to be! ;)
If you are going to take part comment with your video link, I'd love to see them!

Here's a little preview of the next review I'm doing!
Have you tried 1000 kisses by Rimmel yet? I'll be putting it's lasting abilities to the test tomorrow at work but I wanted to try it out anyway! I'm so impatient!


The colour isn't that different from my natural, just a bit brighter!

:: Oily skin life saver!!! ::

If, like me you have incredibly oily skin, you'll know the daily torment of finding products that actually last.
Before I started my search for the perfect products (and believe me I've tested shit loads!) I'd walk out the door feeling great and by midday my make-up was half way down my face and neck!

If you haven't seen my review on the best foundation for oily skin click HERE, it's a little expensive but trust me it's the best I've found!

So onto face powder..... again, I've been through a ton of them and was close to giving up! That was until I came across this little beauty.....


This is a MUST have for all you oily skinned girlies out there!!! I've used this for a month or so now and can't believe the difference in my skin, don't get me wrong, I still look a little dewy but that's towards the END of the day!!!

It's a loose setting powder with added anti-perspirant(which must be the key to this success of this product on my skin) which is actually used as stage make-up!

              (Me wearing Mehron setting powder in Neutral)

Their powder comes in two different shades, white and neutral. If your in doubt, get neutral. I have to warn you when you dab this on your skin it WILL go white but don't panic! Once it's settled (in a few seconds) it does go to the colour of your skin. ;)

My only complaint about this product is the P+P to the UK, I just felt it was ridiculous from their website! So I found mine on ebay from a reputable seller. (Sorry I've searched for the link but I can't find it on my ebay)

If you'd like to know more about Mehron and their products click HERE and if you'd like to do directly to the setting powder click HERE

Have any of you tried this setting powder? Thoughts?

:: If you don't have anything nice to say......::

I'm on a roll with these long posts as of late!

As you know I've been working on my Destination Fame entry and I'm kinda glad the first part is over, it's the most stressful bit to be honest.
Finally I can relax a bit until the voting starts........ that was until some bitch decided to have a go at my work! Remember this picture?....


If not, this is a picture I took of Suzanne behind the scenes before she had her professional shots taken. This picture was uploaded to the salon's Facebook page (Time Salon).
Next thing I know, the comments start coming. Most of them were very positive and then one woman starts her crap.......


An unfortunate relative of Jedward? Seriously WTF???????
Now I understand that not everyone is going to like my work, heck I don't like a lot of stylists work but do you see me saying that to them?! How fucking rude!

Had this not been the salons page I would have went mental!
I was thinking of deleting the comments from this obviously perfect person but decided against it. I'm hoping that she realises how stupid she has come across.
I think the worst of it was poor Suzanne was raging(as you can see in her comments), she did a fantastic job, perfect for the look I was trying to achieve and didn't deserve this shit.
On a lighter note, the last comment had me in stitches! Ha, ha!

I chose my final picture for the competition by the way!

Time 8

What do you guys think? :)

I sent away my entry a few days ago! EEK!
The next stage of the competition is the online voting. There are 12 finalist chosen but the online voting helps push some of the entries through which I'd LOVE! So If you'd like to vote for me I'll post in a few days with details, it would make my year if you guys could! :)

On a completely differently different topic: look how freaking long my hair is getting!!!


It's getting to that really awkward in between stage, it keeps flicking and feels a bit lank but I'm still baring with it. :)
I'm going to get extensions at some point in the next few weeks, purely to give me a boost.
I'm sure if any of you have grown your hair from a really short style you'll understand where I'm coming from!
I was looking at old pictures of myself the other day and was sooooooooo tempted to cut it all off and colour it blue again (picture below)so I think I'm going to have a few different coloured extensions put in to funk it up again!
I also think it's important for my work. How can I tell my clients how to look after their extensions when I don't have on hand experience myself?
