Rouge Bunny Rouge

Upon hearing so many great reviews about Rouge Bunny Rouge (RBR) products, I obviously had to make a small order to try for myself :)
RBR are exclusively available at Zuneta and I made my order a few weeks back when they had a promotion. (Buy two RBR products and get a Decadent Duos in Flamenco-Duende free).

Joys and Desires Decadent Duos in Flamenco-Duende. 
Joys and Desires Decadent Duos in Samba-Enredo. 
Gleaming Temptations Lipgloss in No-Strings-Attached.

Gleaming Temptations Lipgloss in No-Strings-Attached.


"Creamy semi-sheer pale apricot base, glistening with pink and gold pearls for an opalescent effect"
                                                                                                                              -Rouge Bunny Rouge
I love the formula, not sticky at all and glides on a treat <3


Joys and Desires Decadent Duos in Flamenco (lipgloss)-Duende (blush). 
Joys and Desires Decadent Duos in Samba (lipgloss)-Enredo (blush). 

Decadent Duos are half lipgloss and half liquid blush in one. Perfect for your handbag or when you're off travelling.
The lipgloss texture are like the Gleaming Temptations, and the blush is very easy to blend into the skin.

Flamenco-Duende: "Creamy, sheerest delicate honey-peach-beige lip gloss, with a hint of glimmer paired with a silky, delicate illuminating tawny liquid blush"
                                                                                                                             -Rouge Bunny Rouge

Samba-Enredo: "3D effect, delicate palest lavender-pink base, suffused with finest coppery-red and gold pearls lip gloss paired with a silky, delicate illuminating rose-petal pink"
                                                                                                                             -Rouge Bunny Rouge

No Strings Attached. Enredo, Samba. Duende, Flamenco.

Enredo & Duende blush slightly blended out.


RBR is definitely a high end brand, but you get what you pay. The quality of these the liquid blushes and lipglosses are fantastic. These products will also last a very long time as a little goes a very long way.

Have you tried the RBR range?

Little Fille.

I recently won a giveaway on Mari's blog. Little Fille.
Mari is the lovely lady behind Little Fille (shop link) she makes the most cutest hairbands in a wide variety of colours.
A few weeks back she hosted a giveaway where we were given a chance to win a hairband of our choice.
I chose Victoria...


"Black leather band and aluminum chain with removable ultrasuede bow"
                                                                                                             -Little Fille.


Geeking out with my new hairband~~! :)


The only decent pics of me wearing the hairband were from the webcam...

Little Fille is also available in Oxford Circus's Topshop (Around the jewellery section).

Choc-o-late! :)

I do love my chocolate.
If it's front of me I'll munch through it.
I'm not a coffee lover but I'll drink a mocha simply because of the chocolate.
Strawberry or chocolate gateau? Choccie!
Vanilla, strawberry or chocolate milkshake? Chocolate!
Haha you get the picture right? :P

Here are a few that I've been gobbling up and loving recently.
Toblerone Minis. Ferrero Rochers.

Daily Milk Chocos. Like Rolos but without the caramel.

Lindt Blueberry Smoothie, Lindt Strawberry Milkshake. Daily Milk Bliss Chocolate Truffle.

Do you like chocolate?

Chanel Summer 2011.

Les Fleurs D’Ete De Chanel Summer 2011 Collection.
Bronzer. Le Vernis. Glossimers.
I did a little damage...

Glossimer in Pink Peony. Le Vernis in Mimosa and Morning Rose. Chanel Soleil de Chanel in Bronze Rose. (Natural Light).

Pretty~~! Check out the Glossimer! (Flash)

Chanel Soleil de Chanel in Bronze Rose. All shades together, then swatches from bottom shade upwards.

Jen and I was talking on twitter about the number of ways this bronzer could be used, making it a very good investment (justifying our buy too :P). Beside the fact that there is 14g of product, the shades could be used together as a bronzer, or individually/mixed together as a blush, eyeshadow, contour and highlight.
My friendly SA showed me a face chart that Chanel had put together, sadly I couldn't take any photos of it but she made notes for me! 
The first two shades (from top to bottom) can be mixed and used on your forehead (light contour).
The second shade can be used on the under outer corner of your eye (highlight).
Third shade under cheekbone (contour).
Last shade on the apples of your cheek and chin (blush, highlight).
Or all together for a all over glow. I guess this option would depend on the shade of your skin.

All shades swirled together as a warm blush.

Glossimer in Pink Peony. (Bright natural light) You can get a idea of the shininess and sparkles.



I couldn't capture how glossy and super shiny the gloss was :( it's really nice in the sun.

Le Vernis in Mimosa and Morning rose.
2 coats.

Can you see the tiny glitter particles? :)

These nail polishes are gorgeous. They both have a shimmer to them that you can really notice in the sun/under bright lighting. They are both such quick sellers, so if you can get a chance to swatch them in stores, do! 
I still don't quite get the hype over Mimosa, yes it's pretty but I love Morning Rose more and it's the real winner from this collection ;)

Chanel's summer collection was released here in the UK last Friday I believe.

Have you purchased anything from this collection?

Graze.


I received my first Graze box today.
Graze boxes are £3.49 per week (including delivery). There are hundreds of varieties of healthy snacks that the Graze team hand pick for each individual. You get four per week and you can choose which day you want to receive your weekly munchies.

What I got this week. They are all pretty good!

Stacked on top of each other so you can see the size of each box.

Inside the box is a little leaflet about your current box, includes nutritional information and use by dates, and a booklet of ways to eat your snacks and a tissue.

My first box was free and yours can be too. If you are interested in trying your very own Graze box quote this code and you can get your first one free and next one half price. Just pop this code in the promo box on the top right under the 'Get Started' tab, 5MXZDTT.
When you register they will ask for some card details, but you can cancel after your free box. 
Also once you register, you can go through the list of snacks they offer and tick which ones you would or would like to try.

Have you tried Graze?

Brown Butter Cookie.

Just a quick post about this gorgeous smelling product.
Philosophy Brown Butter Cookie Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath.

This was from a Christmas gift set. I used it as a shampoo this evening and it smells SO delish (will attract unwanted hungry things tomorrow! xD). It really does smell like cookies and good enough to eat, shame you can't :P But one thing I found real cool about this product is that there is a recipe on the front for brown butter cookies. I found it slightly fascinating too haha.

Do you have any delicious smelling products?

Hauled Crazily!

After running a few errands, I quickly dropped into town, into Boots and came out with this!


Boots currently have 3 for 2 on all skincare. I took this opportunity to stock up on some of my family and I's favourite products.

Norwegian Intense Repair Body Lotion. Dad's HG cream for his extremely dried skin.
Clean & Clear Shine Control Facial Wash. Lil' bro and sis' HG face wash.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash. My HG facial wash.
Clean & Clear Shine Control Daily Facial Moisturiser. I decided to give this a try as my skin is started to get oily during the day now :(
Neutrogena Wave cleansing pads. I use the Wave during the evenings as part of my skincare routine and am running low on these.


I'm so glad my local Boots have a Chanel counter now, saves me going up to Central to check out products.
They had the new collection in and everything was still in stock :D I picked up the nail colours in Morning Rose and Mimosa and the Bronzer in Rose Bronze.

I will be swatching the Chanel stuff soon, once I get in one more product in :P

NARS Tainted Love.


NARS Tainted Love Set was released earlier on this Spring as a Valentine set.

"The set contains pops of pink for a sexy, yet always sophisticated, look."
                                                                                                                     -SpaceNK        
       
Angelika Lipgloss, Schiap Nail Polish, Angelika Multiple.

Angelika Multiple, Angelika Lipgloss, Angelika Multiple slightly blended in.

Wearing Muliple and lipgloss.

Schiap Polish, one coat.

I finally got this set after fraffing around for so long, should I shouldn't I? XD
But I'm glad I did, it is such a gorgeous set!
The nail polish is wonderful, the bright pink shade is perfect and it is so opaque with one coat.
The lipgloss is semi-sheer with a the right hint of that pink 'Angelika' colour.
The Multiple is lovely and like NARS' other Muitiples, the colour is builable and easy to blend into the skin.
I prefer the Multiple version of Angelika compared to the powder blush as the glitter particles are much finer in the Multiple.

This set is still available in SpaceNK in the UK. I got mine from the Covent Garden branch.

The First GlossyBox: May.

GlossyBox. Five 'high end' miniature products. £10 per month.

This is one of UK's first service which provides us with generous sample size products (ranging from make-up to haircare) for us to try before we buy so to speak. It is very similar to Birchbox, which is available in the US.

GlossyBox first launched in Germany, and has recently launched here in the UK. 
The lovely ladies on twitter had been hyping over GlossyBox for the past few weeks, so I jumped the bandwagon and signed up for my first box which was also the debut box for GlossyBox.

And I received it today! I am super impressed by the 'samples' included. [Image heavy, sorry!]




What's in May's box.

10% off code for Como Shambhala.

<3



NARS Orgasm, NARS Orgasm blended out. All For Eve Lipstick.

Products:
NARS Orgasm Illuminator. Full Size.
All For Eve Lipstick. Full Size.
Bionova Bioactive Cleanser for normal/dry skin. Sample Size: 0.14oz. Full Size: 4.50oz.
Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Rapid Repair Spray. Sample Size: 25ml. Full Size: 100ml.
Como Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion. Sample Size: 50ml. Full Size: 300ml.
Includes 10% off code for Como Sahmbhala.

Ok, so within the box were two full size products which are both worth £32 together! So this box is such a bargain!
Packaging is gorgeous!
On their website you are able to collect 'Glossy Dots' by giving feedback on their current box and products (one dot per feedback), upon collecting 20 dots you can receive your next GlossyBox for free. There are also direct links to purchase full size products. Check here for more information on this month's products.
Delivery is free via Royal Mail.
At the moment they are only accepting direct debit as payment, but you are able to cancel whenever you want.

I can't wait for next month's box! I hope they keep up with this standard in providing such great products.
Check out their website, facebook page, and twitter for updates. Better still why not sign up to June's GlossyBox.

I Want!

Pic from my Blackberry in SpaceNK, Covent Garden.

Last week, the lovely lady from the Corioliss counter demonstrated the Glamour Wand by curling my hair.

I really love the look it gives. With the wand you can create any size curls you want. It is such a quick process too, about five seconds for create each curl and they stay in for a very long time. It has no clippy thing that some curlers have too.
My hair held the curls in for three days without any product whatsoever.

Prices range from about £26 from e-tailers to £99.99 in Selfridges where they offer a lifetime guarantee...

I Want To Go Back!

It's not the best pic, my camera decided to go dodgy on me at that moment :(

On Thursday I was lucky enough to meet Yasumi from Worship Blues! We met up a few hours before attending a blogger's event, and I had such a lovely day with her! She's SO amazing and lovely! 

We walked around Shoreditch, Spitalfields and Harrods. The places we went to made me see London in a different light, it made Oxford Street seem boring XD 
Miss Worship Blues knows all the best places! 
I was lazy to take me camera out (bad blogger!) but I will retrace those steps and take lots of pics next time, hopefully with Yasumi again *wink wink* ;)

One pic I did take was from this intriguing little cafe on a corner in Shoreditch that has been featured on Yasumi's blog a few times.
The Bridge.
15 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch, London E2 8AE.
Upstairs you find a little treasure trove!
It's gorgeous!
I loved the atmosphere and the unique deco, you don't get many cafes like this!
I am definitely visiting again!

Majolica Majorca Puff De Cheeks


Majolica Majorca Puff De Cheeks. The blushes I had a lemming for, but pushed away, yet it decides to come back to me. The cute packaging was a big factor for the strong lemming :P
Thanks to the lovely Jen, I managed to get my hands on the two pinks from the collection.

The powder puffs included are adorable!

PK303, PK301

PK303, PK301

PK301 (Top) PK303 (Bottom)

Wearing PK303, PK301 in second pic.


PK301 is a limited edition shade and is a warm pink.
PK303 is more of a peachy colour.
Both are really lovely and soft. I really like them and I want to other two shades to complete this collection :)

Do you have any of these Puff De Cheeks?
