The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Range - review.

The Body Shop Argan Oil Range review

Today I want to share with you the new Wild Argan Oil range from The Body Shop. 

I was really excited to try this range as usually whenever I use Argan oil products I feel them leaving me shiny and don't soak into the skin for agess which is really annoying and gross, so I wanted to test out The Body Shop who have a high standard of great products to NOT do this. 

I am a huge Body Shop fan, when I was a kid I used to love going in and smelling and picking up the animal-shaped soaps (remember them?) and was always intrigued by their ethics for using their money to help endangered animals and working with human rights. The Argan range is no different, the Argan nuts are ethically hand-picked and then extracted using old Moroccan methods.

Body Shop Argan Body Butter review Argan Oil review
The Body Shop Argan Oil Body Butter* - £13
Wild Argan Oil Radiant Oil for Hair and Body* - £14

The body butter is really thick, it does take a while to absorb but it does leave your skin feeling really soft and smooth for a long time. Worth the wait if you have a while after a bath or something. 

The oil is what I was worried about it doesn't actually take long to absorb in the skin and leaves it smelling amazing! As for my hair I was scared I'd be left with greasy looking ends but not at all! It's so fine and leaves my hair feeling soft and fluffy. But bear in mind you only need a tiny bit!

Body Shop Argan Lip butter review argan shower gel review
The Body Shop Argan Shower Gel* - £4
The Body Shop Argan Oil Lip Balm* - £4

The shower gel doesn't have an overpowering scent but does make your whole bathroom smell amazing after use. A little goes a long way here again it's froths up well and gives a great refreshing wash.

The lip balm is my favourite product. I'ts been a life-saver in these cold weeks! It is very solid but once on it stays on for such a long time I'm left with soft lips all day.

What are your fave Argan Oil based products? I love the smell so much I really want to try a shampoo/conditioner set!

Halloween Costume for You and Your Pet: Devils.

matching halloween devil costume for cats dogs pets humans


I now have my laptop back and I am so happy!
I have a couple Halloween themed posts coming up and I'm kicking off with this awesome costume post where me and Prince dressed up in matching outfits (kinda like Lucille and Buster on Arrested Development, maybe we will win an award?).

If you want to dress up and get your pet involved too then ASDA have awesome dog and cat Halloween costumes (I got Prince an XS dog and it fits him great) that you can also find in their adult halloween costume section too!

You may remember last year when I dressed Prince up as a Skeleton and the year before he was a tiny baby so wore a little cape. I chose the theme Devils for us this year, let me show you my costume first :

devil costume for women
Halloween Glitter Cape* - £6
Devil Horn Wig* - £4

As my cape had a Green glitter effect to it I thought I'd do Green make-up too (which also goes well with the Red hair)
I used the new Atomic lipstick from MakeUp Revolution in 'Serpent'* - £1
And a Green shadow from the I Heart MakeUp Palette 'I Heart Passion'* - £7.99

Now for Prince's Devil costume:

Pet Devil Halloween Costume* - £4

Cat devil costume

As you can see Prince was thrilled to be dressed up haha!
I actually haven't got as excited about Halloween this year, I think it's because I've fallen out of love with my flat and don't want to be here anymore so can't be bothered to decorate it, I will put up a few on the weekend to get the feel and maybe I'll get into it a bit more!

What are you dressing up as for Halloween? And will you dress up your pet?

BLEACH London - Blullini Review.

Oh Hi!

Still laptopless but working on my sloowww Mac desktop. 

I got bored with my hair being blonde again...yep again and decided to go blue!

This time I was trying Bleach London's Blullini which in the hair-swatch on their site looks like my perf shade of blue. However I just knew that after the Parma Violets incident it wasn't going to be as straight forward as having lush-coloured blue hair. So I opted for just doing my ends instead of my whole swede.

This THIS was the colour I wanted! But I didn't do enough hair/put enough on so when I re-did it to add more it went turquoise like I KNEW it would - like the Parma Violets and it's going to stay in my hair for so so long :(

Sorry for the gross pic just throwin some shade.

So I was kinda disappointed in this one, if you use too much/leave it on too long then it goes turquoise and lasts forever in your hair. I much prefer pink/lilac shades in my hair so I think I'll stick to them from now on!
Don't forget to check out my Bleach London Awkward Peach review to compare!

It's Raining Cats... Cat Stationary !

Happy Saturday! I've been feeling not myself and am home alone so have been watching movies on Netflix and am about to order myself Chinese food to cheer myself up!

I was sent a little treat from the lovely people at Santoro London, and one of my favourite kind of treats - stationary! But wait, thats not it, it is also my favourite kind of stationary too - CAT STATIONARY!

Raining Cats Trinket Tin* - £5.99
I'm mad for trinket boxes, I never put anything in them but I love having them about the house to make for a cute accessory, especially with a cute design like this.

Premium Journal* - £13.99
This journal has a PU cover with the raining cat print and comes with an internal storage pocket. It also has 3 different types of printed paper and includes a pen. There is a detachable bookmark with this cute quote on it and also 3 pretty page divider ribbons. I think this journal is well worth the price mark and I've already started writing in it :)

Memo Block* - £5.99
I used to have a memo block and used it all up and now I'm without it I am just writing all over important things like bills, prescriptions etc, so this is a God send! And how pretty is the little lady-cat in the corner!?

I was also sent a kitty pen too :)

What do you think of my treats? I love the print, it's like those vintage cat prints you see with them wearing bonnets and being all Victorian but this is a little more of a modernized version.

Do you know of anymore cat-based stationary I can check out?

Hope your weekend is going well!
