♡ Silver Confetti Nail Tutorial ♡

Hey Everyone, I have an addiction to all things covered in glitter, Glitter always reminds me of festivals and parties, full of life, fun and always has a magical, enchanting feel to it. This nail tutorial was inspired by the feelings glitter gives me. I love how simple this nail tutorial is and the fact that it uses only a few cheap products, some of which you will find around the home.

♡ Limited Edition Maybelline Lash Stiletto Sequins Paillettes Review ♡

Hey everyone, I purchased Maybelline Lash Stiletto's limited edition Sequins Paillettes Mascara recently off Ebay, I hadn't heard much about this particular eyeshadow, however I have tried Maybelline's original last stilleto mascara in the past. I was very excited to try this particular version of Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara for the simple fact that is was supposedly the original formula but with added glitter.

Sadly this was not the case, the formular itself was exactly the same as the previous Mascara however as far as "Sequin's, this was a complete no show gimmick. Im very disappointed.

If you were thinking of buying this product purely because you wanted a mascara with added glitter in the formular I would not recommend/bothering purchasing this product, it would be a complete waste of money. The mascara itself is the same as the original formular, therefore its not a complete waste of money, but again no glitter included.
Another thing I found off putting about this mascara was the strong chemical smell, it was very overpowering. I don't know why it smells so strong, but I would worry that the strong chemical smell would make my eyes water.

 I rate Maybelline's Limited Edition Stiletto Sequins Paillettes 2/5
I rated this product a 2 out of 5 because the product states that the formular includes glitter, which was a complete gimmick, The product had not even one spec of glitter in it, The only positive thing I can say about this product is that the formula is the same as the original formula and the brush has been designed specifically to give your lashed an extra boost of volume, Don't get me wrong I love the formular and these brushes are amazing, however this would be the only two reasons for repurchasing this product. Other then that i recommend buying the original and avoiding the fake glitter version, Save money and get the same product pretty much.

♡ My Current Shoe Collection and Storage ♡

Hey everyone, If there is such thing as a shoe-oholic then I think I think I may be one! I have a shoe fetish, Just recently I rehoused all my shoes. I wanted to show my shoes off as a piece of art in my room, as I am very proud of my shoe collection, I guess you could say I'm a little bit of a shoe collector. hehe
There was a sale of small bookcases, two for $25 NZD at The Warehouse. I ended up purchasing four bookcases to house my shoes in. I think its smartened up my room and definitely has kept my shoes in a nice, organized order. I like to keep boots on top of the book case as they range in size and length, and all my pretty shoes for example heels inside the bookcases.

I'm so excited about my new shoe storage I had to share a few pictures of what it looked like plus a quick glance at my shoe collection. 

Hope you all liked this post

♡ Sigma Cleansing & Polishing Tool Review ♡

Hey everyone, I recently purchased Sigma's Cleansing & Polishing Tool set, I had been eyeing up this bad boy for a few weeks and decided it was time to invest in my skin, therefore I feel the price was justified ($39 USD). My little Sigma package arrived last week and I was ecstatic, I was so presently surprised by this product that I thought it was best to do a blog review.
At first glance: The product itself, and packaging was very elegantly styled, I must emphasis how adorably cute the packaging of this product was, even the box itself was very cute. A good product doesn't have to look good, it just has to be good.. however this product ticks both boxes!. 
The set itself comes with three separate clip on brushes, with variation in texture from soft to hard. The soft brush has been specially designed for facial exfoliating, and caters for any skin type including sensitive skin, which was a huge selling point when purchasing this product, as sensitive skin is difficult to work with. 
Both the medium and hard brush have been designed for exfoliating the body. The great thing about these brushes are that you can tell how coarse they are by the circles inside the brush, the more circles, the tougher the brush, it is advised to use the medium and hard brush 2x a week rather then daily as the brushes are more coarse. These brushes are perfect for exfoliating before tanning.
The Cleansing & Polishing tool works on Double A Batteries, which are not included. a The tool has two speed settings, slow and fast, the speed can be changed by pressing the small pink button. another great feature about the Cleansing & Polishing tool is that its waterproof, therefore perfect for use in the shower.

It took approximately two weeks to arrive, as I live in New Zealand. As always the product was packed securely in a cardboard box, with lots of bubble wrap for added protection while in transit. A few pamphlets were also included within the box, with tips and tricks to guide in the use of the purchased products.

I rate Sigma's Cleansing & Polishing Tool 4/5 hearts.
The set has been designed attractively, and compared to dupe products is the more affordable option. The option of different brush heads is handy. The brush design itself has been designed to cater for all skin types which is a great. The one thing that lets this product down for me is that it required batteries, this to me is a negative because batteries die so quickly and are therefore wasteful plus they cost money to replace, I would have loved for this product to have a charger. 

I am very happy with this product I noticed a change in my skin straight away, my skin felt softer and more alive. I truly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a exfoliator or exfoliant thats soft on your skin, yet effective.

Hope you all liked this review.
