This is a lovely peachy nude, that's great for the office. It's not that we can't wear bright bold colours where I work but it's often frowned upon - it doesn't always look professional!
It's actually my mum's hand in the picture so it's really her NOTD as she borrowed the polish.
I got this when I attended the Avon Party bus with K last week. It applies very easily and my mum was very impressed with the finish after just one coat. In the end she went for a second just to get a more opaque finish. Overall finish was streak free and glossy!
Very impressed - going to pick up done more if the range!

As it's coming to the end of the year (I can't believe it's gone so quick) we thought it would be good to look back over our favourite products.
But as this blog isn't just about mine and L's opinion we would love to get an idea of what your favourite Beauty Products of 2011 have been.
If you could please spare a few minutes to answer our survey that would be great! There is a quite few questions but they only require a brand or make for an answer, no need to explain why unless you want to.

Thank you so much!

We've already mentioned the most recent Diet Coke offer which you can see here. But essentially it's simply buy 2 bottled of Diet Coke and get a free Models Own gloss from a choice of 4.
I went for Glossy Pink but will probably pick up another one as they looked quite nice.
The gloss applies well and I don't find it too tacky, which is always good. Have to say that you don't really pick up much colour without pilling it on! Wonder if that's the same for the dark shades??
The offer is differently well worth a look especially if you pick up Diet Coke on your lunch anyway!
Available in most Boots
When I received this I wasn’t even aware that Liz Earle had a perfume in their range. My initial opinion was that as usually the packaging was perfect, making the whole think look and feel expensive. It would make such a gorgeous gift for someone.
It’s a lovely naturally scented perfume – very musky aromatic scent to it. Sounds a bit strange but it really works. It makes it a great everyday scent which is very suited to the winter months. I find it too strong for a summer fragrance – I like my summer scents quite fruity.
If I’m honest I can’t see everyone liking this and personally I think the scent would suit someone more mature. I do prefer something with either a floral or fruity scent, but obviously it all depends on what works for you.

Saw this in this weeks Look Magazine and I'm in love!!
Hinted to the Hubbie that I NEED it. Definitely on my Christmas Wish list, although at £179.00 it's a bit steep and the Hubbie does not like parting with his money!
Definitely keep an eye out over the next few weeks for our favourite gifts for all the family!
I've already talked about the new serum formula of this foundation, so as I already own this one I thought I should really share my opinion on it!
Bourjois is one of the few high-street/drugstore brands that's pale enough for me to use which is great and I've been using 10 hour Sleep Effect for a while and regularly repurchase. This is number 51, the lightest of the range.
- Apricot - Radiance
- Melon - Hydration
- Apple - Anti-oxidant
- Ginger - Energy
I love the coverage I get and it blends in well, but I personally think you need to moisturise well in the morning as it can settle in any dry patches. I apply a little on to a stipple brush and buff in.
Downsides - it's not as light as the 10 hour Sleep Effect and I prefer the texture and consistency of the Serum version. I also don't really notice much in the way of improvement to my skin.
It's a good foundation but I think it's better for normal/oily skin types as it really doesn't suit mine - definitely try theSerum version if you suffer from drier skin.

I had loads of fun playing around with these!
I don’t have any Tattoos and have debated getting a small one on a few occasions, but I think it’s so difficult to choose the right one and then I always come back to the same thing – what is it going to look like when I 70!. Don’t get me wrong I do like the look of Tattoos on, but it all depends what and where it is.
For example my younger sister has (I want to say, but not entirely sure) 8? Some I think look great, others though just don’t look right.
So these for me are a great way of playing around with the idea – also it was just a lot of fun and we all had a go.
Right to apply:
1. Clean the area you intend to apply them too.
2. Cut out the one you want.
3. Position it on the area and place a damp cloth on top, holding it for around 1-2mins.
4. Slowly peel off and hopefully the Tattoo should be stuck where you wanted it.
