The shard was an amazing experience and fantastic views, my lychee martini was delicious!! (Had just the one as im getting old lol ) 


We then went for dinner at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant barbecoa The starters was amazing, small but very tasty (Pork cheeks) but my main was just average (ribs) however the view of St. Paul’s cathedral made up for this. 


I had fantastic day thanks to my amazing loved ones  🙂

My recent Body Shop purchases

20140723-171642-62202854.jpg Hey All! I was out the other day and popped into The Body Shop, the smell of there products always lures me in! I had picked up two purchases. 1) Colour Crush Shine Lips in shade 13  2) Mango  Eau De Toliette perfume.


I was instantly was drawned to this lipstick as there was a sale going on marked down from £10 to £7, plus as i am a member they had an extra 20% off promotion, so equalled to round £5. Therefore i was tempted to just try one as it was half price for me! (I am a sucker for deals). I really like the packaging, it is cute, small and pretty.


I favoured this colour out of the bunch the most as it matched my nail polished! hehe! (shade 13). In the swatch it looked like a lovely dusky rose pink. However as you can see below on my lips, it looks more like a browny-pink.Therefore, a little disappointed as I wanted a rose pink!

As you can see, this lipstick does give that glossy shine, it is very sheen, almost like a lipstick balm which makes this product very moisturising. I do not feel like I am wearing a lipstick! However,  because of this, it is not very pigmented and the longevity of this product is very poor, it comes of instantly after a few sips of water! There are far more better lipstick crayons/balms/stains currently out there in the market. I far more enjoy using my Loreal Glam Shine Balm as this is more pigmented yet still very moisturising.

Overall Verdict:I am disappointed with the product and will not re-purchase. This product may be good for young girls trying out their first lipsticks.


Second product I purchased was The Body Shop Mango Eau De Toliette (perfume). I fell in love with this scent straight away. It scream out tropical! Therefore a very summery scent to have. It smells just like mango juice, it also states in the ingredient list it contains mango juice! The only downfall I have with this product is that the scent doesn’t last long, prehaps 2-3 hours. But again this only costs £8 so a bargain compared to other perfumes out there so I was not expecting it to last all day! I would just pop this perfume in my hand bag and give my self top-ups throughout the day. It is really cheap so I do not mind spraying it more times and re purchasing again.

Overall Verdict: If you love the smell of mangos then definitely purchase this little beauty!
