As a wee reward for all your patience & the lovely messages I have received I’ve decided to do a little giveaway. It’s comprised of very cool bits and will be super simple.
Through a combination of order errors, sizing fails & sample sale bargains I have some items seeking a good home. I’m hoping one of my lovely followers will welcome them with open arms.
First up is this gorgeous enamel pin from Milk & Moon. Milk & Moon are a fabulous feminist brand who create tonnes of empowering pieces.
Next is this Boohoo maxi dress. I love it, it doesn’t fit. Boohoo plus sizing is pretty dodgy. I sized up & it’s still too tight. It’s a size 24, but I think it’s more like an 18/20.
Finally I have this cracking pair from Bonnie Bling. If you fancy yourself as pure gallus (or you know someone who defintely is) follow the easy peasy steps to enter.
Whenever a giveaway has a million steps to be eligible, I check out. It’s not a fun prize if entering is a full time job! Thus, I’m keeping it quick & easy. Simply follow me on Instagram then like & comment on the competition post on my grid.
UK entries only I’m afraid. Winner drawn on July 1st. Good Luck.
Another Friday night, another beauty quickie. This week I’m raving about nail polish. Primark nail polish to be exact.
I am a nail polish addict. I am constantly buying pretty new shades. Which can get pricey. So, I was delighted to discover that Primark cosmetics are completely cruelty free. Their polish range is extensive, gloss, matte, glitter, metallics & my favourite satin matte. They have every colour in every shade & prices range from 90p to £1.50 a bottle.
Satin Matte for when you can’t decide between high gloss & classy matte.
You’ll be wondering how good a 90p nail varnish can be. Well, I’ll tell you; they’re brilliant. I have already tried quite a few & every single variety has been fantastic. Two coats gives deep, even cover that lasts at least a week. All that without harming a single hair on any creature’s head. If Primark can do it so can luxury brands. I’m looking at you Benefit, MAC, Nars et al.
This week’s nails.
You can find a comprehensive list of cruelty free brands here.
This is a friday quickie to allow me to gush about a new discovery. My darling friend Jenna sent me a mascara from thrive causemetics as part of my Xmas gift & now I love her even more.
I used Benefit’s They’re Real for years, but had to give it up when they returned to animal testing. I loved they’re real & I have struggled to find anything that compared. The search is over, thrive liquid extensions mascara blows benefit out of the game. It adds length & volume & gives me magnificent lashes. Even better, thrive are completely vegan & cruelty free. Plus, for every product bought they donate one to a women dealing with cancer or domestic violence. I adore this company. I suspect I am about to become their biggest customer.
Behold my glorious lashes (& another vegan favourite, the mighty Oreo thin).
This isn’t a sponsored post & I am not being gifted any items. I am genuinely delighted to have found such an excellent mascara from such a wonderful company. Those who try make a positive difference should be applauded & rewarded. I hope thrive gobble up lots of the big animal testing brand’s business. Oh & if you do make a switch please email the brand and tell them why you are rejecting them. I always do!
Sometimes a cheerful quickie is all a girl needs. If you’re looking for a fun & flirty accessories post, you’ve come to the right place.
I picked up these dangling beauties by the till. I’m a sucker for pretty trinkets when I’m in a queue. These were an impulse buy I don’t regret.
This fruity little bargain perks up any ensemble. I have a special fondness for strawberries, so this little bag always makes me smile.
Inline with my 90’s fever I couldn’t resist these holographic flatforms. It’s a pity that summer has petered out, but I’m pining my hopes on an autunm heatwave.
