Sleek Brown kit review

I don't know about you guys but I for one feel unfinished in the morning doing my makeup unless i have defined my eyebrows, mine are a good shape and colour just lacking a bit in thickness.
Don't get me wrong i don't go for the full big thick black scouse brow but, a thickened more structured brow is what I like. I've never really purchased a specific kit for brows and normally just used my £2.99 rimmel brow pencil in hazel, which i must say is a very good pencil but for me, i just felt I needed something a little more. How I cam across this product? well I read a couple blog posts and seen a few videos when it first came out of like people who was sent it for review, and a couple who just purchased it free will and they all seemed to me mostly positive, about 3 weeks ago when I was in superdrug with my boyfriend I came across this product and thought id give it a whirl. OMG i'll just say it now, I am in love with this kit. Its essential in my makeup routine now! It comes with a powder and a wax to set the brows along with two brushes and some mini tweezers.. in all fairness i do use my own angled brow brush to fill them in just because the brush it comes with is a little too small and tricky for me personally and i haven't got round to using the tweezers yet but im presuming they'll be the same. Don't get me wrong there good to have in the kit for traveling purposes or if you see a little suborn hair that you want rid. Mine is in the colour dark, and a down side to this product, well the only real downside despite the brushes ( which may be fine for you guys) is that there is a limited selection of shades, well actually theres light and dark so nothing for the inbetweeners!

-good colour match for me
-easy to use
-affordable at £8.50 compared to HD brow palette ( try ELF for £3.75)
-good sized mirror
-good for traveling

-limited colour selection
- the brushes (for me)
- and i suppose not that easy to get hold of outside of UK

blog shop, maybe?

Hey beautiful readers, just a quick update on an idea i've been forming recently. Since starting up my blog a year ago i've always wanted to have my own little shop boutique but have been debating it for some time now, i'd sell either jewelry or customized clothing im not sure but it would be made 100% my be and only will happen if its what you guys want. I know a lot of people do have blog shops on their blog where they sell like, old clothes they dont want anymore, or things they've  purchased but didn't end up wanting you sort of like ebay but on your blog. I have no clue but the idea of my own shop really appeals to me so please, if you have any ideas or request as to what your main thing you would want me to sell is please feel free to email me

All request are welcome and maybe we can get this thing up and running,

love you all, Jade xx

Top polishes for autumn

Hey guys,
with the English summer being, well pretty much none existent and with me purchasing so many bright nail polishes and being sent some amazing colours this season im upset that its nearly time to put them away and mute it down a little now I guess. So me thinking i would be one ahead of the game I looked at my collection and thought i'd pick out the polishes i'm most exited about wearing and what I think will match the season trends. I've been loving wearing bright yellows,oranges and greens recently and will be pretty devastated that the last chance i'll probably get to wear them this season will be on holiday. I do love all the colours i've picked out and it has made me more exited for the fall so hopefully you guys will like these colours too.

No.7 totally teal, miss sporty no name, max factor toffee, topshop ice crush, barry m rasberry

models own brush set review

as many of you guys will be aware that I'm going on holiday soon with all the summer clothing hauls I do haha (one coming soon too ;) ) but anyway yes I am away soon which means I'm traveling, which then means I'm clearly in need of some decent travel brushes to add to my collection. I initially only wanted an angled eyeliner brush for when I fill my brows in and with this set being £10 for 5 brushes I couldn't pass up the opportunity.
that handle of the brushes are neon orange which I personally love to pieces with dip dye white to orange brush hairs. they come protected with bristle covers. additionally they are labeled on them what they should be used for which makes them really good for people who are new to makeup or dont really wear makeup enough to justify the price of some makeup brushes out there. all I all I love these brushes and would advise them for people who can't afford a sigma/Sedona lace brush set or for beginners.. although like me they are good to have in your brush kit for more experienced brush buyers because they are good quality!

mens summer tips

since a lot of you was interested in my tips to make get women that desired 'bikini body' heres some additional tips for males too..

How to Look Good on the Beach – A Guide for Men
It’s not just women who strive to look good on the beach and it’s not just women who can follow a few tips to achieve their desired beach look. With gender equality more evident than ever, the traditional gender differences and boundaries are seemingly merging with each passing day, with more and more men turning to fake tans and waxing!
If you have aspirations to be a beach God then you may be interested in reading the following tips on how to look good on the beach.
Watch what you eat and exercise
It goes without saying that most people – including men – would like to lose a few pounds before showing all on the beach. The easiest way to accomplish a more slender and toned frame is, of course, to eat a healthy well-balanced diet and to accompany a healthy eating plan with some exercise.
Of course, it is always healthier to adopt a permanent lifestyle change which combines healthy eating and regular exercise than it is to try a quick fix a few weeks before you depart for your holiday.
Choice of swimwear
Men’s swimwear has come a long way since the woollen long johns men were forced to wear in the early twentieth century. From Lycra Speedos – if that’s your thing – to stylish boxers, elegant trunks and a pair of comfy yet classy board shorts, men now have a huge choice of swimwear available to them.
With such a wide choice of mens swimwear on offer, it shouldn’t be too difficult for men to choose a style of swimwear to cater for their individual style, body and requirements.
Bring on the self tan!
Self tanning lotion should not just be an asset of a woman’s wash bag. On the contrary, with the scare of skin cancer and premature aging caused by exposure to the sun, it is a sensible precaution to use these lotions rather than to expose yourself to sunbeds or go out in the sun without adequate UV protection.
Modern self tanning lotion is highly sophisticated. Long gone 
are the days of risking walking around with orange streaks on your legs! Today, self tans can look completely natural, meaning that women and men can look great on the beach without putting themselves at risk.
