Is your mascara Better Than Sex?

Mascara is one of those make up items that I can't live without. My lashes are very light and nearly non existent without make up so my need for a good mascara on daily basis is huge!
I like my lashes to be black, thick and long but still looking natural. Normally I use drugstore mascaras as many of them are great and I don't see the point on spending lots of money on high end ones. But when I received Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in BBB Dream Box I got very excited to try it.
First of all - the name, how cheeky it is and it makes you immediately want to try the product. Second - the packaging, gorgeous rose and gold box and very sleek, though heavier than your standard, tube. It screams 'I'm amazing, luxurious, you must try me'.

My current fragrances

Summer fragrances

I absolutely love perfumes, can't be without wearing any fragrance even if I am just at home doing housework and looking after my sons. Nice scent makes me feel prettier, sexier and happier. Spritz of some gorgeous perfume can lift my mood instantly and bring memories of time when I was wearing it.
Even though I have some all time favourite fragrances I tend to come back to, I love discovering new scents and change the ones I like to wear quite frequently, especially with the seasons.
The four fragrances I'm going to tell you about have been my 'go to' scents for the last 2, 3 months so basically are more Summer/Early Autumn appropriate for me.

My week away from blogging in pictures

Welcome back after my short break I took from blogging!
As you might know my Mum visited us for a week and as we see each other only couple of times a year I wanted to spend quality time with Her and focus entirely on my family.
We had great time together, boys were spoilt rotten by Grandma and we all were very happy. Times like this make you appreciate all the little moments in life that, at the end of the day, mean the most.

Blogging is becoming a big part of my life so I've decided to share a bit of personal life here on my blog and share with you, my readers, some important moments thus this post.

Without writing too much I leave you with some photos we took during my Mum's visit.

Splurge or save? #1 Beauty Blender vs Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Ever since finding out about the Beauty Blender sometime last year I wanted to try it as it had great reviews and it seemed like the perfect tool to achieve a flawless complexion. Unfortunately with RRP £16 I couldn't justify the purchase of this make up sponge. But I was still very curious about this, new to me, make up tool so I bought a similar sponge by Cosmopolitan. Even though it wasn't the original Beauty Blender the finish it gave to my foundation was so much better than using my fingers or foundation brush and I was hooked. After that I got the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and I loved it.
Recently I had to repurchase my RT Miracle Complexion Sponge and also decided to get the original Beauty Blender as I still had the desire to try it out and to see if is any better than its rival.

Manicure Monday #10

This week I'm back to my favourite bright Summer colours for my nails. The weather in UK hasn't been as good the last week but I still want my nails to be cheerful and Summery. I've chosen for my manicure this beautiful coral-y pink shade from Rimmel I heart Lasting Finish 'Hot Tropicana'. In my opinion this is the most perfect Summer pink. I absolutely love the look of my nails, the shade is gorgeous, it looks more pink in some lights and more coral in others. Beautiful anyway!

My love for Dove Body Lotions

Dove Body Lotions Purely Pampering

I can not be without body lotions, I use them every single day after a shower, otherwise my skin feels tight, uncomfortable and gets dry. I go through them with 'light speed' so I want them to be cheap. Cheap but still very good at moisturising my skin, fast absorbing without leaving sticky or greasy residue and easy and quick to apply. That's when Dove Body Lotions come in handy.

Manicure Monday #9 BarryM 'Almond'

My latest manicure features one of the newest addition to BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine collection called 'Almond'. It's a beautiful grey-ish beige with lilac undertones, perfect nude for any season and, in my opinion, very chic colour for any occasion. Normally I prefer to wear bright colours on my nails during Summer but this shade really stood out to me and I've chosen it for my manicure. Just to add a bit of brightness I paired it with OPI Love.Live.Carnaval which I featured already in one of my older posts.
