I ♥ ASOS - My new summer sandals

Hiya everyone

Once again I am so sorry for the lack of posts, I have so many posts lined up and anyone that loves reading my hauls will be happy as I have bought loads over the past 4-6 weeks.  I got some great bargains in the recent sales and also have quite a few charity shop bargains and other hauls! eek.
Lookout for these coming up plus I have a new Nica Handbag.. I love Nica bags :) 

Anyhow I firstly wanted to show you my new sandals courtesy of Asos....I absolutely love these and lately I am loving ASOS too. I am thinking of signing up for ASOS premier and wondered whether its worth the £9.95 a year, it certainly sounds like its worth it anyway?  Maybe anyone who has used this can tell me what they think!

I purchased these  'Jemrock sandals' in Nude , they also have them in a pale blue and a orangey/coral colour.  As a girl who loves my neutrals and pastels these are ideal for me.  I love nude sandals and shoes.

They are like a faux suede material with gorgeous little gem stones on.

Have a lovely weekend and I will be catching up on all your blogs this weekend :)

Two Fake Tan Reviews: L'Oreal Sublime Dark Tanning Gel & Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer


Sorry I did promise to do a couple of fake tan reviews a while back and I apologise for taking so long with this.

L'Oreal Sublime Dark Tanning Gel 

Firstly this retails at £12.99 in Boots. I used to love L'Oreal Sublime tan I used it all the time, it was fabulous! However they then decided to change the formula and I found it was not as good so stopped using this.  I mean why do they change things when they are good, like the saying goes 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'! 

Anyway I was seduced by the fact that this said 'dark' on the bottle and was expecting it to be really good.  As someone who is always tanned all year round I was expecting this to be dark...very dark...unfortunately its not! 

Its extremely sticky, it looks like syrup and when you apply it you really need to rub it in till you feel you have rubbed it in enough and then rub some more!  It takes ages to dry, I put it on about 8pm at night and I woke up around 1am and it still felt stickyl!  It smells very strong, so strong it put me off a lot! 

Maybe I expecting too much but as it was called 'dark' I was thinking I would wake up looking like I had been abroad for 2 weeks....I was a tad disappointed as it was not that dark.  A few days later I applied it again and I literally slathered loads on and this time I was a lot darker but it was also a bit patchy especially on my feet and hands.  Maybe I needed to apply it better! I do always put moisturiser on my feet, knees, elbows and hands as tan always seems to settle in those places but even with that it was patchy.

Overall I would not buy it again I think it was a waste of money and its not exactly a really cheap tan. 

Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer

This retails at £11.49 however it was on offer in Boots and I think I paid around £7.00 for it.  

This is like a dark brown thick consistency with like shimmery bits in.  I felt this was easier to apply as it was not sticky and as it has colour you could sort of see where you had put it.  It does not promise to be dark and in all fairness it wasn't, however at least I did not feel sticky all night.

Again I applied this about 8pm at night and woke the next morning imagining the two weeks in the sun tan, but yet again I was left disappointed..maybe I expected too much but to be honest it hardly gave me any colour!

I felt this was a waste of money plus again it was a bit patchy.

I would not purchase this again but I will say it was slightly better than the L'Oreal one.

So far the best tan I have ever used is Sienna X so from now on I am sticking to that one.  I tend to love my Sienna X spray tans too.  I recently purchased an item from the Sienna X range which I shall be doing a review on soon.  Also I still love my Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs,  personally for me this is a foolproof!

Outfit Post - Bank Holiday Monday

Hiya everyone

Well bank holiday weekend was mainly spent relaxing and chilling out.  The weather was not that great anyway so I decided to have a good clear out and a really good spring clean.  I find when you work full time sometimes it nice to just kick back and relax all weekend :)

On bank holiday Monday the weather was a bit sunnier and we decided to go out for lunch, this was my outfit.
I felt it was not warm enough for bare legs just yet so I decided to put my new Primark Broderie Anglais dress with my jeggings and a blazer and I quite liked the look.

Nude Blazer = Primark
White Dress - Primark
Indigo Jeggings - New Look Petite
Nude Peep toe sandals - Primark
Nude Bow Belt - Primark

My weightloss is going really well and now I am losing around a 1lb a week.  To be honest I have reached my target weight but I would like to lose just a tad more. :) 

Take care

Cardiff Summer Holiday purchases ♥ mainly H&M!


A couple of Saturdays back Mike and I went to Cardiff for the day...its not too far from us and I really love shopping in Cardiff, its so massive and everything is quite close together.  

I did end up buying quite a bit so here is my haul mainly from H&M.  I think H&M always have great summer clothing.


White lace Playsuit,  I have always wanted some white crochet shorts for my holiday but when I saw this in H&M I had to have it.  It was only £14.99 and it looks so nice on.  My husband really loves this on me too :) 

Ditsy Floral Cut-out Dress, again another pretty dress I love the colours together and it fits really nice too.  This was only £12.99 which I thought was a bargain for something that looks so nice.

Floral Denim Shorts, I love these and they were only £7.99.  I really wanted some shorts for my holiday and these are just perfect.  They are like cream denim with the floral design.  They also had them in plain colours like peach, black etc!

Pink Frill sleeve top, awww this is so adorable and girly.  This was £6.99 and although its slightly cropped it will be fine for my holiday or I will wear a longline vest under.  They had this in Cream and Mint too but you know me I love my pink! 

The colour looks a tad washed out here but its actually a really pretty peachy/pink.

♥New Look♥

Not very impressed with New Look lately however I did purchase this peach lace back cardigan


The Primark in Cardiff is lovely...its massive and had loads but unfortunately not many items I really loved!
However I found a few nice items.

I got this Broderie Anglais ( I ♥ Broderie Anglais) dress this was £5.00, its just a dress for the beach really.

Coral butterfly PJ Bottoms and Coral Lace Shoulder top, love these so much they are super comfy and I love the legging PJ's as I am short they seem to be better for me.  They are like a biscuit colour with coral butterflies on.  

I was searching for a top to wear with them and found this which is actually a 6-8 (the same as the bottoms) it looks bigger though!  However when I got home I realised this looks so nice its actuallly too nice to wear  to bed so I may keep this to wear with shorts on holiday or jeans! I have got a vest top I can wear with the bottoms. 

Rose print flip flops, every time we go abroad I always head to Primark for cheap flip flops as they are ideal for wearing on the beach as the sand is usually so hot it burns your feet!  These were only £1.50.

and finally this inflatable bath pillow....I have literally wanted one of these for ages and this was only £1.50.  I love the pretty print too...its very me! 

To be honest I really don't need anymore summer clothes as I have so much already, however knowing me I will probably end up seeing other things I want over the coming weeks!

What do you think of my haul?  Are you jetting off anywhere nice soon?

Take care and have a lovely bank holiday weekend :)
