Teeny tiny e.l.f haul

So I pretty much love everythig from e.l.f and seeing as they had a few deals on over the past 12+ days, I thought it would be rude not to take advantage of them :p I didn't get much this time, only a few things but I thought I'd share what I got with you all. Here it goes:

Studio Line stipple brush £3.50 Really good for applying foundation, only downfall is it could be slightly denser. But for £3.50, I definitely think it's worth a try.

Studio Line powder brush £3.50 Again, I use this as a foundation brush and LOVE it! I prefer this brush over the stipple because it's more dense and it gives a slightly better finish. The only downside is, it's quite hard to clean. I find spot cleaning with MAC brush cleaner first, then deep cleaning with johnsons shampoo works best for me.

Nail polish in Mango Madness £1.50

Nail polish in Gum pink £1.50

Everything I've listed is available from

Best hand cream ever!!

I have really dry hands, escpecially in the winter. So bad infact, they look like a 90 year old lady's (no offence 90 year old ladies ;p) I've tried quite a few different hand creams and most of them do work, but if I stop using them for a day or two they go back to being super dry. I watched a review on The bodyshop Hemp hand protector by Sirvinya ( ) and wanted to try it for myself.

I've used this for three days and it's amazing stuff!! It's quite greasy so I only apply it before I go to bed an first thing in the morning, but just using it twice a day has really made a big difference. The one bad thing I will say is, it has a herby smell, but once the cream has dried into the skin it goes away.

Wicked nails..........

I always like to learn new things and want to add new skills to my cv, so I thought about doing a nail art course. That way I can offer more to clients, especially brides. One of my good friends loves doing her nails and text me the other day saying she found a new cheap website that sells lots of nail art stuff. So I figured I'd order some things and try teach myself, rather than having to fork out for a course. OMG the website is amazing!! Things are ridiculously cheap, such good quality and shipping is 75p!!!! I'm too excited to start playing about with the things I got, I will of course keep you all posted ;) But for now, here's what I got:

* Microbeads in purple 99p

*Fimo hearts 75p

*Fimo flowers x10 50p

*Fimo summer range - fruit £1.25

*Plum blossom gems in black 99p

The website is If you love nail art seriously check it out! I'll definitely be buying from them again.
I ordered on Friday and recieved my order today, my friend ordered hers on Thursday and recieved it on the Friday. I think it just depends on the time of day you order (mine was about 6pm)
