Naked Basics Palette

Whilst I was in America I ventured into Sephora in Times Square which has fast become my favourite place! The shop is amazing, filled to the brim with beauty products and perfume to suit all budgets and with fantastic try it out areas such as a nail bar.  

When I reached the till area I could not resist the Naked Basics Palette.  At just $24 I thought it was a real bargain and the perfect size for me to bring on nights out.  I am really pleased with the selection of colours which can easily take you from day to night and the staying power of the colours is excellent.  

I am now considering stocking up on one of the Naked Palettes, would you recommend one form the three?

Spring/Summer Weddings Wishlist

I am going to a Spring wedding in America this month so I have been having a look for outfits to wear to the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day.  As I am sure you all know I am a sucker for floral prints but I have also picked out some plain dresses which I am going to accessorise with some bright jewellery and accessories.

NYC Wishlist 2 - Design Your Own Converse

During my holiday this week I am hoping to visit the Converse store to pick out a customised pair of trainers.  I wanted to pick up a pair the last time I visited New York but the store needed 3 days to make them and I only had two days of my trip left.  

Before the trip I decided to test out the make your own section of the website to test out some designs, these are currently my favourite pair! I will post pics of my final design when I get back from my trip.

NYC Wishlist 1 - Pamela Barsky

Whilst I am in New York i am going to take the time to visit the Artist and Fleas section of Chelsea Market.  I went there last time I visited and I absolutely loved it the whole place was fab I managed to pick up some beautiful jewellery and accessories last time and I can't wait to go back.  

Last time I was there I picked up a pouch from the super talented Pamela Barsky.  Her products are absolutely brilliant, gorgeous little bags adorned with quirky and funny quotes.  The one I bought two years ago has served me well, I have used it to carry makeup and jewellery and even as a purse.  I have a wish list ready for my visit. 

All of Pamela's products are also available from her Etsy shop, click the link to see how amazing they are.

Alchemist Manchester Review

This week I paid a visit to one of my favourite bars, The Alchemist in Manchester.  I have been to all of the branches now in Manchester and Leeds. This time I visited the New York Street branch which is my favourite of the three as it is a little roomier.  

The cocktail menu in The Alchemist is seriously impressive, there are lots of options and most have added impressive detailing including popping candy, dry ice, colour changing capabilities and popcorn!

I went with a group of friends for some tea and cocktails, the atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff were excellent.  Service was very good and we took advantage of a 25% discount code which you can secure by signing up on their website. 

My personal favourite cocktail is the Bubblegum Daiquiri which is not listed on the menu but the staff will happily rustle one up for you.  It is absolutely delicious and tastes just like a stick of bubblegum.  It has a topping of popping candy too, what more does a girl need!

We also had some food which was delicious and real value for money.  I opted for the chicken fajitas which arrived sizzling to the table with generous portions of dips, salad, cheese and wraps.  My friends opted for similar dishes such as steak and vegetable fajitas, burgers and sandwiches and everyone of us was more than happy with the meal.  

Have you been to The Alchemist before? What did you think?

Benefit Lollitint Review

A few weeks ago I decided to treat myself to one of Benefit's latest products, Lollitint.  I am a big fan of Benefits tints, before buying this one my favourite was their best selling Benetint which I use on a daily basis.  

When I saw the new release I could not resist temptation, the colour is absolutely divine and I could not wait to get my hands on it! 
When it finally arrived I was not disappointed, the candy orchid colour is simply beautiful and perfect for everyday use.  I adds a lovely pink natural glow to the cheeks and it has fantastic staying power.  I have applied this in the mornings and roughly 8-10 hours later I have not noticed any difference in colour from application.  

The consistency of the product is much creamier than Benetint and I feel this makes it easier to apply.  The product dries quickly so after experimenting I find it easier to brush it gently onto a blusher brush and stipple it onto the skin.
Priced at £24.50 the tint is more expensive than some of the usual products I buy but a little really does go a long way.  Previous tints that I have bought have lasted for a long time and they are a staple part of my make up regime.  You can purchase it in lots of places including Boots, Debenhams and Benefit Stores or Online.

Next on my wish list from Benefit is the They're Real Mascara.  Have you got a favourite Benefit product or have you tried Lollitint?
