Reviewing some stuff

Oh dear. Its been an age since I last blogged. Been very busy with uni work I'm afraid. However, I have done a wee bit of make-up shopping in between times but unfortunately I havn't been able to share my hauls with you. :( Sorry. The only good side of this is that I've now had some of these products for a while so I can offer you my thoughts on them. :)

Ok now you're going to think I really sad here, but I actually took picys of the stuff I'd bought when I got back from the shops. lol Just because I knew at some point that I'd want/need to blog about it. lol

Haul 1

We have some sponges, nivea lip care, dove deodorant and sudocream. These were from boots and bodycare. So... here's what I think about...

1. The sponges. I bought these for cleaning my face. I used to a flannel, I tried these, hated them and I have now gone back to cotton wool. Definitely not the most environmentally friendly option but much better for my skin.

2. The Nivea Lip Care "Caregloss and Shine". I believe this is a colour called pink... something. There are two shades that I am aware of and I went for the pinkier, darker one. The other is a more nude colour. I love this. Like when I first got it I couldn't stop wearing it. This is a good sign. Pretty cheap too. I'm sure it wasn't more than £2.

3. The Dove Deodorant. I like dove deodrants they do make my underarms smoother and nicer. I also really like "stick" deodorants. A bit like soap admittedly but preferably to spraying stuff everywhere and those horrible roll-ons. *shivers*. Anyway I usually go for the original one, but this time I tried the "Invisible Dry Anti-White Marks". It smells a bit different but still pleasant. Only thing I'd say is it isnt totally anti-white marks. I didnt think it would be tbh. It is defo less white marks than the other one but not totally fool proof when wearing a black top.

4. Sudocream. I was late on this whole bandwagon. I tried it after listening to and reading the wonderful comments from lollipop26. (Check her blog out its amazing). Anyway, I was perhaps too optimistic and excited about this product. Unfortunately it didnt work for me at all. Dried my skin out horribly. I could perhaps try it again in the summer.....

Thats it for this post. Hopefully more to follow. If there is one thing you try make it that Nivea lip gloss. :)

Firstly, sorry for the lack of blogging recently. It's coming up to exam time so that means proper revising. I had still been finding time to read everyone else's blogs and leave a few comments here and there, but not much time to post my own. Which is a shame because I've bought some bits and pieces recently that I want to share with you. Soon hopefully. I'm totally skiving just now. *slaps wrist* ;)

Anyway Lazula80 tagged me for this. So here we go....

"List 7 things that you love, and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you love! Be sure to tag them and let them know that they have won. You can copy the picture of the award and paste it on our sideboard letting the whole world are Kreativ" (I copied this bit from Lazula80 cos it explains it all wonderfully)


  1. Family and friends
  2. The boyfriend
  3. Make-up
  4. Shopping
  5. Uni (although it's a kinda love/hate relationship sometimes. lol)
  6. Bunnies
  7. Getting dressed up.


  1. Kandee the make-up artist
  2. Hele says
  3. The Yummy Mummy's Beauty
  4. lollipop26
  5. Beautifully Glossy
  6. Angels with Dirty Faces
  7. Llyangel

I love Lazula80's blog but I think it would be a bit pointless to tag her back. lol (sorry about that Lazula)

I'm also not clever enough to make their names a link.... I wish I could do that...hmm..

Anyway hope I've done this right. Over and out.

What did I learn today?

Its been a while since I last did one of these posts. I have been learning though don't worry. ;)

What I learnt:
1. Snow is march is NOT cool. The tiniest little bit can cause ridiculous amounts of disruption to daily life, such as, driving at 10mph on a motorway causing a huge tailback and making people late.

2. There are some horrible skin conditions out there.

3. At some point in my career Im likely to get head lice. Apparently. *SO unimpressed*

4. Surprises are great. :D

5. All is not what it seems regarding a certain relationship... hmmm... intriguing.

TAG: 6 things that make me happy

Hiya I was tagged to do this an embarrassingly long time ago by the lovely Lazula80. (you can find her here: ) Sorry its taken me so long!

So here we go....

1. My boyfriend. Been going out with him for two years now, and he makes me very very, very, I-get-dancing-feet kinda happy. lol He knows me sooo well and can often predict what Im going to do before I even know myself. Anyway I could talk about him all day but lets not cos I'll make you all sick with the mushyness. :)

2. My uni friends. They are the bestest. We had the best rants to each other and the best laughs too. We are so wonderfully geeky together, yet cool in our own extra special way. :)

3. The prospect of a big night out. I love going out. I live by the work hard, party hard rule. I don't get to party as much as I would sometimes like but when I do it is done properly. lol Uni nights out with a theme are always so much fun.

4. Spring. Signs of spring are making me very happy at the moment. I love seeing snowdrops and the buds of the trees. Also, this is not really related to spring but I love seeing wildlife from the bus window on my way to uni. Like deer, and birds of prey etc. It makes me smile being able to spot these creatures minding their own business while no-one else on the bus seems to notice them. I saw a fox once sculking about in a field - Im quite proud of that. Probably seems really sad but it gives me a huge sense of wellbeing.

5. Make-up. Yeah is this sad? I feel like I shoulda come up with something made meaningful. But I love make-up and applying it and shopping for it makes me happy. The end.

6. Surprises. Getting nice surprises makes me happy. As does planning surprises for other people. :)

Thats it. Apologies for the lack of depth and insight. I went a bit mad with the colours due to lack of picys.

I tag: Dazzledust25 GlossQueen and Ondine. Apologies if you have already done this tag. :)

Coming soon..........

Sorry for the lack of posts. :( I've been trying to be very good and do uni work However I did find time to go shopping last week and got a few wee things. Not very exciting but I did get one lip product which I LOVE. It seriously rivals my other two faves that I wrote about and thats not something I say very often. Anyway, another more detailed post about that later. :)

I still havn't done any spring/summer clothes shopping or got a ball dress. :( This makes me sad.

However, I did get to travel on the bus today with my bf (our time schedules rarely ever match up); and had a relatively successful day at uni. Oh and a great lunch. These things make me happy. :)

I have just remembered Ive got a tag to do. *sticks a mental post-it note on her forehead*
