Fairy Lights

I have been eyeing fairy lights for my room for a while, but I could never find one that was reasonably priced, and I could not pay for something that I know that I can make something similar and cheaper. so after seeing this picture I decided I would give it a try.

And it turns out it is not so complicated, You will need origami paper (£6.75) and I got some Christmas light from last year.
I have to say that the picture above look much better than mine, but I'm happy with it.
( I made holes in the bottom because the paper is very thick)

Would you try making it?

Is it worth the hype? Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balms

As I said on my Monday's post I was browsing around Boots and I realised that the new Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balms were out, and after seeing/reading a lot of reviews about them I wanted to try them out too.
(Natural light. From left to right: Darling, Rendezvous, Lovesick)

If you are unfamiliar with this product, they are lip stain and lip balm together, when you first apply they fell like the lip butters however they last longer, the lighters lip products doesn't stain as well as the darker/ brighter one. They are extremely easy to apply and they smell/taste like mint.
After the disappointment of the Lip Butter I was hoping they were as good as people were saying they were, but I can honestly say that they are defiantly better than the Lip Butters. I would recommend them.
Have you tried them? Do you like them? Let me know in the comments below.

NOTD: Fiji by Essie and Gold by Nailgirls

I'm on my way to the airport right now and I decided to show you my nails, I think it is just perfect for holidays. It is very simple but the gold just gives a pop of glamour!
Fiji by Essie is a bit streaky but with two coats looks fine. The Gold nail polish is super easy to work with, I could've applied only one coat, but I like to apply two coats.
What is your favourite nail polish for summer holidays? Let me know in the comments below.

B`s thought: Revlon Photoready Cream Blush

About a week ago I was browsing around Boots and came across the new collection of cream blushes from Revlon, The new collection contains 3 cream blushes but as usual the Boots I was in only had one.  
(Natural light. Cream Blush in Flushed Rouginssant 200)

This blush looks very natural when blended but it can also be worn more heavily. When applied to the skin it goes more like a powder and the finish is matte, which I like specially for summer as my skin is already oily.
My favourite way to apply it is with my finger but when it is applied with a stippling brush looks lovely as well.
I like Revlon Photoready products because it lasts a long time, even with cream products like this one. This blush has became my favourite cream blush and it's already on my suitcase.
I would like to try the others blush from this collection, they look great!

Look for less - Hanna Marin- Pretty Little Liars.

I haven't done a post like this one in a long time, also I haven't done a fashion post in a while now and I really  miss them!
So, today I'm showing you an outfit that Hanna wore a few episodes back, I love this trend of wearing cute short shorts with a blazer/jacket.

I love Hanna's style, she is always put together and always so fashionable, I would love to dress like her, sometimes I try buy most of her outfits, but they are too much for myself.
Hanna's outfit is not super expensive but we can always get a similar and spend less.
Her jacket is from Zara (£89.99) but if you don't want to spend that much in a jacket I would suggest this H&M yellow jacket (£29.99) or this Dorothy Perkins (£40.00). The white top can be from anywhere, just a normal fitted tank top, the one she's wearing is from American Appeal.
The necklace is from Urban Outfitters, I couldn't find on the website but a few months ago I got a similar one from Topshop.
Last but not least her shorts are from Joie ($92.00) but I would go for this ones from zara for £12.99.

I absolutely love this outfit, do you? would you wear it? Let me know in the comments below.

B`s thoughts: LUSH Jumping Juniper shampoo bar

As I'm leaving next week to Malta for my holidays and I need all the space I can get on my little plastic bag I thought it would be a good idea if I didn't need to put a shampoo in there, so I had two options: I could buy a shampoo once I'm there or buy a solid shampoo. I decided to give the LUSH shampoo bar a go.

It smells like lavender, I personally don't like it but the smell is not very strong and not overpowering, I couldn't smell it after washing it.
At first it was a little scary to use, it feels like soap and the thought of washing my hair with soap is terrifying, but after rubbing it on my hands it started  to lather it felt like liquid shampoo, I washed my hair as I usually do.
I really like this, it cleans my hair very well and makes it shiny and bouncy, however I need to use a conditioner after using it.
The girl in the LUSH store said this particular shampoo is good for people with oily hair, so if you hair is dryer I would recommend you to choose another one.
She also said that it lasts up to 1000 washes, I can't say if it does because it's the first time I bought it.

It can be purchased in any LUSH store or on the website. (£5.22).
Have you ever tried any LUSH shampoos bar? Which is your favourite?

My  all time favouriteTV show is defiantly LOST, but I've been loving PPL,Vampire Diaries and Revenge.

Is it worth the hype?

People on the YouTubeland and beauty-blogland have been raving about both of these products, so I decided to try both of them out. 
First of all I need to say that they are good products and they do a good job! However after reading and watching some reviews I thought they were miracles in bottles, and that's defiantly not the case.
My personal favourite is Bioderma Sebium H2O, I like that is a gentle make-up remover and I can easily take my eye make-up off even if I am wearing waterproof mascara and it does not sting my eyes, and after I started using it my skin has never been better.
I do also like the clean skin 5-in-1 water by This Works, but every time I take my eye make-up off it makes my eyes burn a little bit, and I don't see any improvement on my skin after using it.
Another plus side is that Bioderma Sebium H2O is cheaper, but it is very hard to find in the UK, I always buy it from Ebay.
Overall do I think they are worth the hype? As I said before they are not miracles but they work so I would say yes, they are worth the hype!
This Works Clean Skin 5-in-1 water (£21)
Bioderma Sebium H2O (£10.45)

DIY: Friendship Bracelet

I love the arm candy or arm party trend, but it can get expensive to buy new bracelets, and after seeing a lot of bracelets I decided to make my own. It is easy, cute and inexpensive.

 You will need beads, hemp cord, buttons , scissors and stick tape. ( you can get the hemp cord and the beads from Ebay).
Step 1: Measure you wrist with the hemp cord, leaving more hemp cord than your wrist size.
Step 2: Take four times your wrist size with some excess cord.
Step 3: Make a loop for the button.
Step 4: Cut the extra string.
Step 5: Star braiding.
Step 6: Once you braided about three time, put one bead in each side, leaving the middle one with nothing. Continue braiding and adding the beads.
Step 7: When you are happy with the length, add the button and make some nots. And you are done!

Do you like this trend?Let me know down bellow. If you make any bracelets I would love to see so send me a picture on my email:

B's Thoughts: Veet Suprem'Essence Hair Removal Cream

Today I'm talking about an awkward subject, body hair, Anyway I've been using this product for about 2 months now, and I feel that now I can do a review for you guys. I usually shave my legs every other day, basically every time I wash my hair. 

With this product I do think I don't need to shave as often, I probably use it about once a week, it is not harder or easier to use than shaving with a razor, it's actually the same thing and takes the same amount of time to do it, the only plus is that it lasts longer.
The only down side this hair removal  is the smell, it absolutely stinks! I would defiantly recommend taking a shower after you have used it, because the smell lingers and I don't think any of you want to stink
If you shave every day, or every other day and you don't mind the smell I would recommend this product.

Have you tried this products? Have you ever tried any Veet products? Let me know in the comments below

NOTD: Just Spotted the Lizard! By OPI

Today I went to watch the new spider man film, so I decided to do a NOTD post with one of the spider man collection.
Just Spotted the Lizard is a dupe for Chanel Peridot 531, so if you were eyeing the Chanel nail polish I suggest you to check this one out.
This nail polish needs two coats to get to a nice colour, but it looks less green and more gold in the nails. I love this nail polish and when I was wearing it I had so many complements, the only down side is that it chips easily and it is not long wearing.
What is your current nail polish? Would you wear this nail polish?
(excuse my chipped nails, I accidentally deleted the original picture, so I took this one instead)

I haven't done a Monday Questionnaire in a while, and I really wanted to post something different today so I was looking for some tag to do then I decided that I prefer doing a Monday Questionnaire again, so went to amarixe blog I chose another one. So here it is!

I am feeling lazy, should be going to the gym soon but I just want to stay home watching YouTube videos and TV.

2)Did you do anything fun this weekend?

6)Current Outfit:

7)What is the last movie you saw in theatres?
