Shoe o' the Day and Beyond !

Incase you were unaware I LOVE LOVE Shoes. So I thought it might be fun to sometimes blog my shoe of the day for my fellow bloggers and shoe fans :)

So this is my first Shoe'o the day. I will come clean and tell you it's not the shoe of today. It's a shoe of the day from a few weeks back.

But I do love these shoes and thought I'd get the shoe rolling.. so speak with these first !

They were purchased from Schuh's ebay store and are Irregular Choice

What do you think ?

My Current Cosmetic Wishlist - Barry M

To keep track of my current loves and wants I decided to blog them ! That and it's my birthday in a few weeks and one of my friends wanted some inspiration.

I have never used any Barry M products but I keep reading rave reviews about Barry M products especially the nail paints.

Here are the current Barry M Nail Paints I am lusting after

Blue Glitter

I am also really liking the grey and mushroom Nail Paint too.

What's your favourite Barry M Nail Paint ?

Lauren's Summer Nights Nails

I have now created my 2nd and final entry for Lauren Loves Summer Nails Competition

The design is my own.For this design I used Avon's Viva Pink and the blue stars I have had for a long time and I am not sure where they were from originally.

I used two coats of Viva Pink as one coat left some of my nail tip clearly visable.I then added the stars and a clear top coat.

The colour of the nail polish is a great vivid shade.

Lauren's Summer Ice Lolly Nails.

Well I made my first entry to Lauren Loves Summer Nails Competition

I have called this design Lauren's Summer Ice Lolly.

The design is my own and I used 3 polishes from the Models Own

For my design I chose Beth's Blue,Lemon Meringue and Pastel Pink.

I hadn't used Models Own nail polish before and I was really impressed with the colour and the consistency.

It is also nice to have a big bottle of nail polish and at 14ml a bottle they are well worth the £5 each. Currently they have an offer on, to save money when buying multiples of any nail polish or eyeshadow powder.

I am hoping to invest in more of the range in the future.

Finally I would just like to wish Lauren a very happy birthday Xxx

I recently purchased Volcano Foot Mask & ScrubVolcano Foot Mask & Scrub from LUSH i finally got round to using it yesterday.

Lush say it is a "Deep cleansing,deodorising,skin-softening treatment for toes,soles and heels.With deep cleansing clays,lemon oil and enzyme-packed papaya,stimulating,antifungal,cinnamon and fresh tomatoes to stop stinkness".

Lush recommend you cover your feet in the Volcano mask, wrap them in plastic bags or film,leave on for 10 minutes then massage in to scrub away old skin and rinse off thoroughly.

Using the mask I found a little messy but that is only because I am a bit clumsy and needed more hands! As I ended up missing the film and leaving some of the scrub on the living room floor oops !

After one use, I found my soles to be a little softer and my feet felt refreshed, although I didn't quite get the walking on clouds experience that the LUSH sales assistant said she got.

I will be continuing to use this product and will be interested to see how soft my feet become.

Eyeko so cute

After hearing so much buzz about Eyeko products I decided to buy a few bits. Of course my decision wasn't at all swayed by asos having a sale !

I bought 3 nail polishes and some concealer.

The concealer gives a nice even coverage and is very light in texture. There is little to no mess when applying the concealer.

The packaging is light weight and very girlie and cute. Not to mention it's a steal at £5.

Happy reading,stay pretty
