Feeling Daisies

So as Summer is gradually taking hold I have been loving wearing this very subtle, floral theme. The Necklace and Earring duo is from River Island and I can tell you, I have received endless compliments, on the earrings in particular, when wearing these.\

Even my brother, who NEVER compliments me on what I wear, said that he loved my earrings. I just think they are so cute and summery, without being totally OTT. 

Even when I went to get my cartilage pierced, my piercer complimented me on them!

The top also is a new love. It's from New Look and is just a simple alternative to a strappy top, it also looks so gorgeous alongside the jewellery!

Gloss It Up

From Left:  Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Extreme Plump,  No7 High Shine, Maybelline ColorSensational Shine, MAC Cremesheen Glass, Benefit (not sure the name/colour), No7 High Shine in Rose Pearl, Benefit CORALista.

It maybe that I've been watching too much Gossip Girl, but recently I just can't get enough of glossy lips! I am usually a matte lip girl through and through, and don't get me wrong matte red lips win every time; but for summer, with minimal makeup, lip gloss just looks gorgeous! 

I haven't got a very big collection as I've really disliked gloss in the past, so I've had to make a few purchases. 

My favourites at the moment have to be:

No7 High shine - Rose Pearl

I absolutely LOVE this gloss, it's the perfect colour, almost clear with just a hind of pink. It's also not sticky in the slightest despite giving a lovely shine. 
*it's also the one I'm wearing in the photo*

Maybelline ColorSensational Shine Gloss 

This gloss is lovely also however, despite it's name, it's not as shiny as the others but it's the least sticky and so moisturising. I really love it and the colour (I can't remember it's name) is such a gorgeous peach/coral and so pigmented. 

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Extreme Plump

So this one is a weird one for me. I absolutely love the look, and taste of this gloss. It's a gorgeous pink and has a beautiful sheen but the way it feels on the lips It's not sticky at all but to say it makes your lips tingle is a bit of an understatement! My lips felt numb they were tingling so much, and I'm still not sure if I like that. But it's still in my favourite 3!

Benefit TropiCoral


In an attempt to inject some summer into my makeup I picked this lovely Benefit set up from Boots the other day. I only went over to enquire as to the price of CORALista and ended up coming away this this...oops! 

I absolutely love it though and have been using it pretty much everyday. It's a perfect set to take on holiday to have that gorgeous, summery coral glow. 

It includes (as you can probably see):

High Beam
Cha Cha Tint
CORALista Blush
CORALista Lip Gloss 

To me these sets are just perfect for trying a nice range of products that all compliment each other, at such a great price. And that way, if you don't like one of them, you haven't wasted a lot of money on just one thing! 
It was £25.50, and considering CORALista on it's own is £23.50, you're getting a pretty good deal.
