Lalalab Photo Printing App Review ♡


For while I have been wanting to print off photos and make a photo scrapbook. I didn't want the usual photo albums or the usual photo style I wanted to make it unique. That is when I found this company! I was so excited as you had get them printed in many different styles, yet they don't break the bank.

I decided I would get some small ones and then the odd bigger one as I wanted to make them look cool on each page of the book.

I was lucky enough to catch them when they had an offer on so had money off plus delivery didn't take that long either... no faults at all with the company.


I am definitely going to be ordering some more once I get started...going to start my scrapbook now my lovelies.

Have you got a Scrapbook?

American Candy Tried & Tested #1



I recently went into B&M, nothing better than a nose around a bargain shop. I always say I will just have a look and always end up buying something. 

I wanted to try out some American sweets.. these are the four I bought, I will be doing more posts like this don't worry!

Mike&Ike
I thought they tasted like jelly beans just stickier and had more flavour to them than jelly beans. They were really tasty though. 9/10

Gobstoppers
These were mini Gobstoppers,  they had a fizzy taste inside and they were flavoured but nothing exciting. If you want to keep your teeth perhaps you shouldn't have these. 5/10

3 Musketeers 
This was like a Mars bar or a milky way somewhere in between. The nougat in the Mars bar is the whole thing of this one. You could really taste the sugar but I did really enjoy it and would buy it again. 8/10

Twizzlers
I thought these would be similar to strawberry laces, which are up there with my favourite sweets. They smelt of strawberry laces but in a twisted shape. However... I was so wrong. They were absolutely disgusting, there was a plastic feel to them and they were very plain no raster of strawberry at all. -1/10 

I hope this gave you some inspiration of what sweets to try! 

Let me know if there is one you've tried and think I should?

Love

Natural Gluten Free Doggie treats Subscription box! Top collar Review ☆


I am always looking for natural dog treats, it's nice to know what exactly you are giving your furry friends. I was lucky enough to find a deal where the first box was free and all you had to do was pay £1 delivery. 

They are gluten and wheat free.

Since it was coming up to St Patrick's Day they were themed around that. The biscuits are so cute in little heart shapes. I love how you can add a picture of your dog on the postal envelope, it's definitely a cute little touch. You can chose to freeze your account or skip a month if you can't or don't want to pay that month. There are so many fabulous flavours including 'Cheese board' and Spa Bol, how can you think of anything better! 

My bouncing jack Russell wouldn't give the the mail this morning as he knew there was a treat inside. He really enjoyed them, obviously they must be given part if a balanced diet. The packaging is so lovely too. 

You can purchase/sign up to your subscription by typing in Top Collar Dog treats Subscription into Google.  

You can thank me later..woof! 

Thanks again Top Collar

Have you tried them? 
Let me know what you think.

Primark Haul ♡ Spring Edition


The sun was shining.. payday was upon us. I couldn't help myself but yet to wonder in and have a nosey at what was new in. There was so many pastel colours and so many shorts to choose from. However I refrained from buying any summery clothes just yet as want to try and sell some of my other clothes first.


I did pick up a few bits though. Primark are amazing for Disney accessories at the moment, between pyjamas, purses, bags, mugs there is so much to choose from. I feel like if you don't get something while you see it, next time you go back it won't be there...especially in Primark. So took my chance to get some gorgeous sandals while they had my size! I loved this Belle nightshirt, I got it in a size bigger as I want it to be oversized and slouchy (for a fiver you really can't go wrong) 


Here's the first pair. They were £8. The sole feels like there is a cushion layer to it, so should be really comfortable. I loved the detailing on them and there was only 2 left in my size. Why is that? 4, 5, 6 plenty of them, any higher and there's none.  


This is the second pair I bought. I normally get the material flower ones they do every year but fancied a change. These still have the chiffon flowers but with more detailing. These were £6! They look so much more expensive then that. They also have a cushioned sole.


Third and final pair are these nude pumps. Primark do so many colours in this style, the black version I wear for work. At the price of £4 why the heck not. I thought this colour was very Spring appropriate, ooooh doesn't it make you excited for the warmer weather..

Benefit Rollerlash Mascara Review! Want Longer Lashes? You'll like this ♡



Okay, it was late and I was browsing makeup online and came across this mascara. I have owned it in the past but hadn't owned it in a while so thought I'd splurge and treat myself. I wanted to see if it was worth it or whether you could get better or the same results in cheaper brands.

Packaging 
The packaging is so pretty! I think it's such a sleek look and a touch a pink to the lid matching the writing is a nice touch. The shiny black is a good contrast to the matter lid. I think out of all the benefit mascaras this one is the nicest of the nicest with 
packaging.

Price
It's a little on the pricey side, not as much as say your Chanel or Dior mascaras but still more than an average student would pay. It's £19.50 in Boots and if you only want to try it out you can buy a mini version for only £9.95. 

Product Description
The eye opening Hook 'n' Roll brush grabs, separates,  lifts and curls. While the instant curl setting formula holds for 12 hours. Contains provitamin B5 and serin ingredients known for their lash-conditioning conditioning benefits. It's water resistant and easy to remove.  87% said it gave a long lasting curl.

Opinion
After using it myself I would say it takes less product to get the finish result. Where as with cheaper mascaras you need to layer them up to get this result. The brush is good at grabbing the right amount of product and coating the lashes.  I would say it really does curl my lashes and is a really deep black which I love! You don't end up with flaky bits under your eye either, it stays in place.

Overall 
It's a lovely mascara, so nourishing on the eyes. I am unsure how to say how quick it drys up but I think it is worth paying a bit more.

Score
10/10

Loreal Pure Clay Face Masks Review. Full Set ♡


Sometimes I try not to fall for the special offer on the new and latest products that the sign makes you feel you need. Boots had an offer on where you could save £2 so I had to buy them... yes 1-0 to Boots, they will always defeat me.

At the time they had a leaflet by them, you place the circle cut out on each part of your face and it tells you what place to put each mask. It was so helpful!

I'll start with explaining what each mask claims to do.

Glow mask
This mask claims to brighten and exfoliate your skin.

Detox mask
This mask claims to detoxify the skin surface by cleansing deep into the pored leaving skin looking clarified and beautified without drying it out. 

Purity mask
It works deep into the pores, leaving skin purified and matte looking. 

All masks claim to not dry out the skin and I have to agree. You can apply the same mask over the whole face, but if you want to target different problems round the face this is how I do it.
Forehead - Purity Mask
Cheeks - Glow Mask
Nose and chin - Detox Mask

Overall Opinion
The Detox mask makes your skin super soft and your face feels really clean but without the horrible tight feeling. I wouldn't say I have noticed my skin looking brighter or more 'glowy' with the Glow mask however I will give it more time. The Purity mask makes your skin feel lifted of the badness your skin may of picked up through out the week. They are such good value for money and the packaging is so sleek and nice makes it look more expensive.

9/10 for Detox Mask
6/10 Glow Mask
7/10 Purity Mask

Primark Has Stepped Up It's Game! Flower Bralets ♡


I recently took a trip to Primark (possibly for the 5th time in only a few weeks) I have to say, they definitely have stepped up their game....DAMN! I found the flower bralets that are all the go lately. Of course they were he'll of a lot cheaper than higher brands. Top was £8 & bottoms were £3, the fit is really good you wouldn't think they were from Primark. 

I also picked up this black silk robe with lace detailing as it was only £10. Super simple.... but non the less very classic. 


Definitely will be popping again soon as the spring pieces should be arriving slowly..yay warmth and colour!

Travel Lodge Birmingham - Bullring Review ♡



Location

I recently stayed at the Birmingham Bullring Travelodge. It was in the centre of all the places I needed to get to. Perfect location for shopping in the Bullring, or if you are going to concert like I was. 

Price

It's definitely the most affordable place I have ever stated in. It was only £25 and that was a double room for two people. You could have half hour free WiFi,  or pay £3 for 24 hours and that is what I did. You were entitled to have breakfast there for a price, however I chose not to.

The Hotel

It was clean, however there was a massive spider in the lobby and was still there the next day. I'm sure they could if helped him find the door....poor thing! There was a restaurant area which was open if you wanted to go in, however I didn't pay for meals and got them else where. 

Room

The room was clean, our room was at the front of the hotel which meant we could hear all the traffic and people going on their way. They supplied us with a small kettle with sachets of coffee and tea but no pots of milk, so we were unable to have any due to there not being a fridge.  There was a reasonable sized television though. 
The bathroom was clean and an okay size, however the light switches had a mind of their own. You'd press the end switch once and it would be the bedroom, you turn it off and do it again it turns on the bathroom light. (Very weird!) Also I turned the tap on the basin turned it off, got into bed and the shower came on, on its own even though I hadn't touched it at all! Towels smelt a little funny too. 







Sleep

I did have an okay night sleep, the bed was so comfortable and the pillows were like laying on a cloud! Perrrrfect! However, about 3/4am a man was yelling outside and slamming doors. I also heard someone beeping multiple times which by the time they stopped I was awake. It was a Friday my night though, weekdays may be a bit quieter.

Overall

I think for £25 for two people to stay one night, it's a really good price! However, if you want a coffee take some longlife milk with you and also maybe go on a weekday. For the price though it was fab and the location was close to everything I needed. 

A good budget hotel!

The Pretty Reckless Concert In The O2 Institute Birmingham!♡






 I recently went to a concert in the O2 Institute in Birmingham. The Pretty Reckless were doing a tour. I was so exited to be going, counting down the days.  

The day was here, my backpack was packed and ready at the side of me. We left in plenty of time for the coach up to Birmingham. I stayed in the Travelodge by the Bullring (there will be a review up soon) 

The concert was amazing! They were so good, exactly like they would be on a cd. However, if only I had taken a loan out before arriving for the drinks, you expect them to be expensive but wow. Two vodka and redbulls were £18 pound.. they also put a full cup of ice in too. 

Here are some of my pictures I managed to capture. If you live them and get the chance to see them, definitely go!
