*Pond's Institute Cold Cream - Cleansing Softening Cream - Review*

Hello everyone! Today we are talking about a cleanser which I have been falling in love with over the last few weeks. Pond's Institute contacted me asking if I'd be interested in taking a look at a few products. I have become a little bit obsessed with skincare lately so I was more than happy to try out a few new products!

Pond's Cold Cream is available from Boots here for £4.99. You can also check out the details on this product on the Pond's Institute website here. The whole idea behind this cleanser, to give you a brief summary, is that it is not only supposed to cleanse without drying out the skin and leave your skin feeling soft.

The packaging is so cute! The glass jar really makes the product feel expensive and luxury. This is the perfect size jar at 50ml. Perfect for travel! I have recently been away from home and I actually took this in my toiletries bag as a more portable cleanser!

Now on to the product itself! The cream is so thick! It is almost like a body butter. I knew immediately that my eczema suffering skin was going to love this as it felt so moisturising just on my finger tips. Although it is thick it applies on to the face pretty thinly and easily. After applying this to the skin you simply rinse it off. I find that this cleanser really dissolves make-up fast making it the perfect night time cleanser! It is also perfect for night time as it leaves my skin feeling moisturised and soothed rather than tight and tired like it sometimes can at the end of the day! It is also a great cleanser to use when you're not wearing any make-up or as your secondary cleanse.

I also love to use this as a cleansing face mask. I love to do this with all my cleansers really! I really love wearing this as a mask as my skin visibly appears even and feels so smooth! I just love this cleanser so much! I think... I have found my new favourite!

Have you tried any Pond's products? What is your favourite cleanser? Let me know in the comments!

MAC Powder Blush in Melba - Review

Recently I have been trying a variety of different blushes. I have really noticed how changing something as simple as blush can really change a look and make the skin look so healthy and fresh. Today I will be reviewing my first ever MAC blush which is in the shade Melba.

I must admit that when I was trying to choose my very first MAC Powder Blush I was so overwhelmed by choice! Take a look here for the massive range of powder blush that MAC offers at £18 each. I eventually made up my mind and chose the shade Melba as my blush collection is lacking in some coral shades.

Coral shades seem to be more and more popular as the year progresses. I decided I would try a blush with just a hint of coral tone. Much like the rest of MAC's products the packaging is amazing. It is sturdy and sleek in appearance. 

The pan itself is pretty decent in size which I would hope for with the £18 price tag! The blush itself isn't too powdery meaning that you don't lose a lot of product from fallout from the pan... again another point to MAC for getting the formula spot on.

The pigmentation is truly amazing. This is simply one swatch on the back of my hand. As you can see Melba is the perfect coral toned blush, perfect for summer. I am much more used to wearing pink/ deep pink blushes so I was nervous about trying this blush! However it is truly beautiful. It gives a lovely healthy flush to the skin. It is also perfect for summer. I love wearing this blush when it is sunny outside as it really is the perfect finishing touch to that summer look!

Do you have a favourite MAC blush? Or do you have a favourite blush from another brand? Let me know your favourites in the comments!

Book Review: Missing by Shelley MacKenney

Hello everyone! Today I have another book review for you guys. If you haven't already been doing so click here for my progress in the 2014 reading challenge and links to all of the book reviews I have done so far!

Today I am reviewing a book that I absolutely loved! I loved it so much in fact that I actually contacted the author to tell her how much I loved the book and respected her as an individual. The book I will be reviewing today is Missing by Shelley MacKenney.

Missing by Shelley MacKenney

Missing is Shelley MacKenney's story about her life. In short, without telling you all the details of the book and ruining the read for you, this book is both raw and truthful in its representation of a variety of tough life experiences.

Shelley begins her story by describing her home life, her adolescence and ultimately what leads her to take the choice to leave home, leave her job and become 'missing'. Shelley has a great way with words whilst she describes her story. There were times  I felt scared for her and times that I hoped something fantastic would come across for her. What makes the book even more touching is that you know it its Shelley's own life. As I said I will not describe the events that unfold in the book as I don't want to give too much away about Shelley's story before you pick up the book!

I couldn't put this book down. My emotions were all over the place! I smiled, I was sad, I cried! I can only imagine how tough this all must have been for her and it really makes you appreciate what you have. If you enjoy real life stories I can do nothing more but recommend this book to you. I have recommended it to countless other people!

Are there any real life stories you would recommend? Have you read this book before? Let me know in the comments below!

Bourjois Paris Healthy Mix Foundation - Review

Hello everyone! Today I am reviewing a foundation that I have wanted to try for the longest time. I have heard so many good things about the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. This foundation well and truly lives up to the hype that it has created! In fact I am so in love with this foundation that I want to try the serum formula as well! Can you tell my foundation obsession is getting a little bit out of hand? Anyway on to the review!

I have been trying out this foundation for a few weeks now. The packaging is beautiful. Small, simple and sleek. For £10.99, which you can check out on the Boots website here,  you get 30ml or 1fl.oz of product. The foundation bottle comes with a handy little pump which makes it tones easier to apply the product. I team this with my real techniques expert face brush to get a flawless finish. 

I love the shade range available for this foundation. I rarely find foundations that perfectly match my skin tone since I am so pale! NC15 is the only foundation that is absolutely perfect for my skin tone however I have to admit that Bourjois is pretty much spot on for me too! I'm in shade 51 Light Vanilla.

One thing I rarely ever comment on with foundations is the smell... however I am going to today! This foundation smells absolutely divine! It smells so fruity and fresh! Yes I smell my make-up brush occasionally when I do my make-up with this foundation... don't judge me! For those of you that are sensitive to smells don't worry, the smell doesn't linger and it doesn't seem to aggravate my currently extremely sensitive skin.

Here is a photo of me wearing the foundation. As you can see it gives a really fresh and refreshing finish to the skin. My skin always looks more awake and fresh after using this foundation. The lasting power is also fantastic. On me this foundation can definitely hit the 12-16 hour mark on those longer days. The foundation has medium coverage which is definitely buildable and leaves a dewy and healthy look to the skin. However if you prefer a matte finish you can quickly apply some powder and you're good to go! The foundation claims to leave a 'healthy glow & flawless complexion' with 'up to 16 hours' wear. I have to agree with both of these claims! Well done Bourjois!

Have you tried this foundation or any others from Bourjois? What is your current favourite foundation? Let me know in the comments!

Lets take a look at: Barry M Nail Polishes

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well! Just a quick update before I head straight into today's blog post! I am away from home for the duration of this week. Although I will have internet access I may be a bitter slower in responding to any comments and tweets so please check back if you are awaiting a response! Don't worry though! There will still be posts throughout this week as usual!

Buisness out of the way... lets get straight in to today's blog post! A few weeks ago when I finished work for the summer I decided I wanted to go out and pick up a few new nail polishes. I paint my nails the most in the summer as I have more time to do so and I am less likely to chip them. I love Barry M nail polishes, particularly their Gelly Hi-Shine nail polishes of which I will link reviews of at the end of this post. I picked up two Barry M polishes with a free limited edition shade!

I ended up picking these three shades which I think are absolutely gorgeous. I initially went looking for a turquoise colour which you can see I managed to find! 

The three shades I picked up were 417 Blue Grape, 420 Guava and Bikini 421 which is the limited edition shade I chose. The limited edition shade is one of their normal formulas and not the Gelly Hi-Shine formula.

417 - Blue Grape

First lets a look at 417 Blue Grape. This blue is absolutely gorgeous. I got a lot of compliments on this nail polish! I would describe this shade as the perfect electric blue. I personally was a bit unsure of this colour at first as it is a deep colour but it is bright! Something about the colour made me a bit  unsure however over time I really loved the colour. 

420 - Guava

Next we have 420 Guava which is my favourite of the bunch. It is exactly what I was looking for. The colour is so opaque and I only needed one coat. It is absolutely fantastic and this bright colour actually went with a lot of my clothes! I have been grabbing this shade a lot over this summer. Definitely a summer favourite! 

421 - Bikini

Next we have the limited edition shade 421 Bikini. I really love this colour as it a great blend of a lavender colour and a neon purple. It really is a lovely and wearable colour. It is hard to find wearable coloured nail polish sometimes however I think this is the perfect shade for adding a splash of colour to your outfits and to your nails!

Lastly I thought I would add this in to show you guys! I created a different spin on the traditional manicured nail look by using 420 Guava on all my nails expect my ring finger nails which I used 417 Blue Grape. I think this combination of colours works so well. It almost gives an under water/ sea type of vibe don't you think? No? Just me? Okay!

I hope you guys enjoyed this look at a few Barry M nail polishes that I have picked up recently. Below are some other reviews of the Barry M Hi-Shine nail polishes that I have written:

What is your favourite out of the three? Are there any nail polishes you would recommend? What is your favourite Barry M nail polish? Let me know in the comments!

*Book Review: Blaze Tuesday and the case of The Knight Surgeon by Kai Kiriyama*

Hello everyone! Today I have another book review for you guys! I have really been loving writing book reviews lately. As I am sure you can tell after my book themed week a few weeks ago I hope to bring you guys a ton more reviews on the books I have read this year! The lovely Kai Kiriyama contacted me through Twitter wondering if I would be interested in reading and reviewing her book. I jumped at the opportunity as it sounded like such an interesting book!

Blaze Tuesday and the case of The Knight Surgeon by Kai Kiriyama

Blaze Tuesday is a crime/detective novel in a world where the latest fashion trend is clockwork body modifications. To explain this further it is essentially replacing body parts for robotic clockwork parts. Some have this body modification out of medical necessity however others become more addicted to the modifications. 

Blaze Tuesday, the protagonist, is an ex cop who is now a detective. His whole world gets turned upside down when he is asked by one of the leading clockwork implant firms to deliver a package. This delivery is the beginning of a plot that develops further and further in revealing a conspiracy fuelled by the leading corporates in body modifications.

Firstly I love the concept of the story line and the whole inclusion of body modifications. Often crime/detective novels can become a bit repetitive in plot structure however this was a fantastic twist! All of the characters in the story are developed beautifully. I really enjoyed Blaze and his tongue and cheek attitude to life. 

I also love how as the story develops we learn more about the world of robotic clockwork modifications and more about the life and background of Blaze Tuesday. It really fascinated me how much thought and detail Kai has put in to creating this world of body modifications. The attention to detail describing these modifications, the corporations that produce them and the people that use them is incredible!

Overall I would totally recommend this book, even to those that don't necessarily enjoy crime/detective novels! I love the world that Kai has created and I can see this series become one of my favourites!

What is your favourite crime/detective novel? Please let me know in the comments!

Poundland Beauty: Make-up Bag

Hello everyone! Today I just had to blog about my most recent find from Poundworld as it is just so beautiful! I found a gorgeous new make-up bag and I just have to blog about it!

My usual day to day make-up bag is just a plain white toiletries bag. It was silly of my to have a white make-up bag as it showed every last bit of make-up on the bag and got very dirty very quickly! Needless to say I have been reluctant to do a 'What's in my make-up bag' post as it looked a tad on the dirty side! I have been on the look out for a new make-up bag however I didn't want to pay a lot for one! After making an impromptu trip in to Poundland this weekend I came across this beauty. It is the perfect size and width and the pattern is just gorgeous. The combination of cherry blossoms and the birdcages is just so feminine and the colours are so vibrant. The material will easily wipe clean which I love and you are also able to wipe the inside clean which is perfect!

Would you guys be interested in my doing a 'What's in my make-up bag' post? Please do let me know if you would like me to!

Where do you think is perfect for picking up a new make-up bag? What is in your make-up bag and what is it like? Let me know in the comments!

Makeup Revolution - The Matte Effect Foundation - Review

Hello everyone! Today I am once again taking a look at the Make-up brand that lately seems to have taken the blogging world by storm. Of course once again I am talking about Makeup Revolution. Now... I am becoming slightly obsessed with buying foundations. I honestly don't think I will be happy until I have a million and one foundations that fit each type of finish for the skin! I thought trying the more affordable Makeup Revolution foundation, which is available for £2 here, would be the perfect way to feed my foundation addiction without breaking the bank!

Makeup Revolution - The Matte Effect Foundation

The foundation itself is in very durable plastic tube that is both clean and sleek in appearance. I love the use of rose gold text. If I am being picky I have a slight problem with the lid. On my packaging, although it completely shuts, the lid does not fully turn to be straight with the packaging. This means that the lid always looks like it is at a slight tilt. Not a problem for £2 however it's those little touches that makes the product look much more expensive than it is.

I'm going to be the first to say that I accidentally clicked add to basket too early and put in the shade Natural by mistake! Luckily the shade is fine for my summer skin tone. If I had my chance again I would have picked up Ivory! 

Although the swatch doesn't entirely match my pale hands it does match my slightly more tanned face! Though as I said I would choose a slightly lighter shade in future. As you can tell from the swatch the foundation itself is liquidy (my describing abilities are amazing). It is a tad runny for my liking however it provides a lovely natural finish.

The coverage is very light and natural. I would compare this to a CC cream myself. I often find myself using this foundation when I want a much more natural finish or when I don't want to wear very heavy make-up. So is the foundation matte? Initially yes however this does wear off throughout the day. The foundation claims to last 16 hours which honestly I don't agree with. I think the foundation lasts around 8-10 for those of us with a very hectic lifestyle! 

Overall I would totally recommend this foundation for more natural make-up days. I would also recommend this for younger skin as it simply colour corrects and applies a little bit of coverage. For £2 you can't really argue for the value for money!

Have you tried the Makeup Revolution range yet? Have you tried their foundations? What is your favourite affordable foundation? Let me know in the comments!

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC15 - Review

Hello everyone! If you read my birthday blog post you will know that I received a few make-up bits, including MAC! I am slowly but surely trying out items from MAC that I have wanted to try for years. Today I am going to be taking a look at MAC's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in the shade NC15. You can take a look at the powder and its available shades here on the MAC website.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC15

I have reviewed the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation here. After I had bought and tried out this foundation I knew I had to try the powder! 

The packaging is so sleek. I really love how professional this compact looks. It is domed in shape and when opened reveals two compartments. The top compartment reveals a handy compact mirror which is perfect for travel and on the go touch ups. The second lower compartment contains a circle sponge applicator. Personally I do use the sponge with this product as the powder, for want of a better word, is very powdery when used with a normal powder brush. I find that using a sponge allows you to perfectly place the powder on your face and then you can blend it further with a brush.

The powder itself is absolutely amazing. It perfectly sets your make-up in place. My make-up doesn't budge for hours after I have set everything with this powder. What is even more impressive is that it has a full enough coverage that you could simply use this as a powder foundation on its own or over concealer. I often use this after wearing make-up since 7am to quickly touch up my make-up and coverage again at 5pm rather than re-applying a full face of foundation. It truly is amazing! 

The price tag for this is £21.50 therefore I wouldn't recommend it as an affordable day to day powder. However for touch up and special occasions it really is amazing. The finish is absolutely gorgeous and the powder has amazing oil control throughout the day.

Rimmel London - Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch - Review

Hello everyone! I have been wanting to review the Rimmel Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch for the longest time! However I only had three of the four available shades and to be honest it was bugging me! Luckily I managed to collect all four. I managed to find these in Poundland which is an absolute steal considering one of these Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch shades usually retails for £4.99! You can check these out on the Rimmel website here.

Rimmel London - Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch

As I said I picked up these four shades in Poundland. The shades I have are 001 Flush Of Pearl, 002 Radiant Rose, 003 Peach Glow and 004 Shimmering Sand. The packaging is in line with the whole Wake Me Up line by Rimmel with the infamous orange colouring. You get 0.47 fl oz/ 14ml of product.

I am slowly beginning to learn about highlighting and contouring. Since I am off work and QTS training for the summer it has given me plenty of time to play around with my day to day make-up. I'm also beginning play around with contouring. The Rimmel Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch shades are great to begin learning how to highlight certain areas of your face.

Here are four swatches of  each shade in order. Shade 001 Flush Of Pearl is pretty neutral shade for those with fair skin. It is great to add a neutral highlight without adding too much colour to the skin. Next we have shade 002 Radiant Rose. I love using Radiant Rose as a blush. It is fantastic at adding a lovely rosy tone to the cheeks whilst adding a shimmer highlight. Shade 003 Peach Glow is, as the name would suggest, much more peach toned and is great for a subtle contour or highlight. Lastly we have shade 004 Shimmering Sand. This is the perfect highlight for those with tanned skin.

What doesn't really show up in these swatches is the shimmer that the product contains. I'm not going to lie when I first tried these out and swatches these I did panic a bit. Shimmer particles tend to send me in to an 'I will look like a disco ball' frenzy. However the shimmer that these shades give is so natural. It does make the skin appear naturally radiant. The key is to use a little of this product. A little goes a long way as they very well pigmented.

Poundland Beauty: Creightons Squeeky Clean Pore Wow Wow Face Mask - Review

Hello everyone! After a week of book related posts we are back to the beauty items! Not just any though... we're back to the Poundland beauty series! For those of you that occasionally take a look through Poundland you may have noticed that they are promoting a new range of beauty items which are all under the brand Squeeky Clean. So of course I was intrigued to explore this new affordable brand!

Squeeky Clean Pore Wow Wow Face Mask

The brand seems to have mostly skincare and bath products currently. They all also smell like a mix of strawberry and raspberry... at least they do to me! The scent is definitely noticeable as my other half has often commented that I smell sweet after using this brand! 

I have picked up a few products from the range however today we will be talking about their Pore Wow Wow face mask. I love the packaging. It is very fun and vibrant. The colour scheme is also constant through the brand. The packaging is sturdy plastic and the lid re-applies tightly which keeps the face mask nice and fresh. The mask itself claims to be 'pore refining'.

The tub itself gives a generous amount of the face mask, 100ml to be exact. The face mask also has a really thick consistency. I have been trying this out for a few weeks now and I love this mask! I'm the type of person that likes to chuck on a face mask all the time... probably more than I should! Since this face mask isn't too strong I can use it a lot in the week without messing up my skin! For those of you that love to over indulge with a cheeky face mask or two during the week this is perfect. But does it do anything for your pores? The short answer is yes but not in the long term. I tend to notice that the day after using this mask the small areas where I do suffer from enlarged pores are not an issue. They are significantly reduced however this only lasts for around one to two days!

So overall I love this mask, especially for pamper evenings. It doesn't break the bank and its great for popping on before a night out just to give your skin that bit of a boost. It also leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft. Yes the results aren't long term but for a pound you can't really argue!

Have you checked out the Squeeky Clean range yet? What are your favourite face masks? Let me know in the comments!

*Book Review: Prime Deception by Carys Jones*

Hello everyone! As promised this week is full of all things book and reading related! I hope you are all enjoying it! I have been so inspired with my reading and book reviews lately. I love summer because something about it makes me want to lay bay and relax with a good book. Anyway! Today I will be reviewing Prime Deception by Carys Jones. Carys contacted me asking if I would be interested in reading her book and of course I said yes!

Firstly let me start off by saying that usual a book centred around the political world wouldn't usually draw me in. I will be the first to admit that I am bad with politics although I do find it interesting and I do try to stay up to date with it. The novel Prime Deception is based in the fictional political world of Charles Llyod, the prime minister, who finds himself in a loveless and unhappy marriage with his wife Elaine Llyod. Charles finds himself wrapped up in an affair with his secretary Lorna Thomas. However upon the discovery of Lorna's death and apparent suicide Charles and his world take an unusual twist. Events develop further when Lorna's twin sister, Laurie Llyod, arrives looking for answers about her sisters death.

The plot for this book really interested me. I found that the plot was really engaging and had plenty of twists that kept me wanting to read on. Usually, since I am a big reader, I can often predict the direction of the plot that a book will take however I must admit that I did not expect the ending to this book! Of course I won't give this away - you will have to read the book yourself to discover the ending! My only criticism of the book and the ending is that it did seem a tad rushed. I would have preferred more time and chapters dedicated to the ending and the conclusion of everything. 

However other than this I really did love the book. It is a smooth read. It was perfect for having in my handbag on my Kindle as I could just pick up the plot and put it down as and when. I also loved the developing characterisation that occurred in the book; particularly with Charles, Laurie and even Lorna who we learn more about. As the plot thickens I felt that not only did I learn more about the events that had happened but I also learned more about the characters involved.

If you are beginning to explore the crime/mystery genre then this is the perfect starting point. The plot isn't hard to follow unlike some crime/thrillers that can make you feel like you have to be an experienced detective to figure out the whole book! A massive thumbs up and recommendation from me!

Do you have any recommendations for crime or mystery novels? Let me know in the comments!

*A chat with the author - DelSheree Gladden*

Hello everyone. A slightly different blog post for you all today. If you check out my previous blog post here you will be able to read my thoughts on the book Date Shark by DelSheree Gladden. Today I will be sharing a few Q&A responses with the author herself! I hope you enjoy!

1. Hi DelSheree. Firstly thank you for the wonderful opportunity to read Date Shark. Could you please give my readers a brief summary of who you are and why you became a writer?

Thank you for reading and for having me on you blog! I am married and mom of two adventurous kids. Family, sports, church, and exploring the nearby mountains keeps us pretty busy most days. I also work as a dental hygienist. I started writing when I was a teen as a way to express myself. I was pretty quiet, and writing allowed me to share what I was thinking about, even if nobody ever read it. 

2. Could you give a brief summary about the novel Date Shark?

Date Shark focuses around Eli, a man tormented by his past, and Leila, a woman who feels like she is in over her head in pretty much every area of her life. It's her dismal dating experiences that bring Leila to Eli. She hopes his coaching will help her ditch her label as the "go to girl" when a guy needs a last minute date, but she doesn't know what to do when she starts falling for him. Eli, on the other hand, has everything planned out. He's convinced sticking to his plan is the only way to make sure he ends up with Leila, but the possibility of it backfiring is all too likely. 

3. What was your inspiration behind the novel Date Shark?

I was actually looking for help on a query letter for a completely different book quite a few years ago and ended up submitting it to The Query Shark. She helped me whip the query into shape, and that book was eventually published, but the experienced gave me an idea. What if there was a shark out their for woman who needed a dating overhaul? 

4. I noticed throughout the novel, but in particular at the beginning, you were very good at pointing out common flaws we all have whilst dating. Was this from experience or did you gather ideas from other people?

I've always been a people watcher. Product of being so shy, I suppose. I always listened when one my friends needed to cry or rant over a guy. Everyone, me included, have blind spots about themselves, and sometimes they can really impact a relationship. There were bits a pieces accumulated over the years that helped build this story, but in book two I actually asked for bad date stories from friends and got some great ones to base new Date Shark experiences off of! 

5. I loved the use of changing POV throughout the novel. Why did you decide to implement this in the novel?

When I finished the first chapter with Leila, all I could picture next was Eli walking away shaking his head at himself. There was too much going on in both of their heads to tell it from only one point of view. 

6. Leila is involved in the fashion industry. Is fashion something that interests you?

I love fashion! I was actually accepted into the fashion design program at CSU, but I couldn't work the classes into my schedule and ended up switching my major at the last minute. I love to sew, though, and designing clothes has been a hobby of mine since my days of cutting up scraps to make Barbie clothes. 

7. There are reference to a lot of films in Date Shark: Elf, Psycho, Ratatouille, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Holiday Inn to name but a few. What is your favourite film?

It's so hard to choose. I really love quirky indie films like "Safety Not Guaranteed," but I adore classics like "Charade," too. If I have to pick a favorite, I'd have to go with "Another Earth." It's one that really stuck with me for a while. 

8. Luke or Eli - who would you choose?

Another tough choice! I love to try new things, which is why I have a bazillion hobbies I don't have time for, but I love a romantic, too. I think I'd have to go with Eli, because I think you can really see how much he adores Leila, and every girl wants to feel like they are the center of their guy's thoughts. 

I would personally like to thank DelSheree for the wonderful opportunity to both read her book and interview her! You can find Delsheree here on twitter! You can also check out her website here.
