Glitterati Review from Crown and Glory unboxing


Hey every cutie- so I was going to make this a video but... well I rendered it and then wham my laptop was like . No Space, and it didn't save and I threw it in the waste bin which cleared to make space and then was like why it not loading to you tube. So I royally messed that up big time. Anyway looks like something to post on my blog for a change...*tear* all that hard work for nothing!

So moving on with the post, This is a un-boxing post and you guys get to see what's in the box, this is a monthly subscription box by Crown and Glory, which is a online Hair accessories shop. The send out a box of Monthly goodies that comes to the value of up to/over £50 and its £23.95 a month. When all the boxes are sent out each mouth in the uk it takes 3-5 days to get here.

The box comes as a brown box with a signature glitter like ribbon around it, inside the box your items are wrapped up with gift warp , this one was pink and have little paper confetti inside, am sorry for the lack of photo's I did have all this filmed but yeah just used your creative imagination and see the past images below from the website. 



So I got 5 items- mostly head bands which work fine with both my real and fake hair. One item was a hair slide and I find hair slides so annoying but cause it has cute bubble bee's on it - well we can say I don't hate it , the other items were a 3 rose flower clip which I adore! And the other 2 being hair bands which are all lovely and a garland circlet.
One hair band is a neon bright selection of small flowers which was utterly overkill in the cuteness and the other item I would not of picked myself was a more vintage scarf made into a hair band and used that chiffon material, it was nice to get something I would not normally pick myself- I rather like it ,Which is a bonus.And last but not least the garland was a butterfly and sakura twine with ribbon circlet that I fell in love with.
Keep a eye on my Instagram for photos of items being used!

Overall I like my box and the items in it, I would say its priced well for what you get . It might not be something for every one as its not a tailored box to your hair but it would make a nice gift for some one else. I will give this a 9/10 over all as it was a really neat idea and loved all the items , but the reason for the 9 is that from looking at the past boxes , once you get one box you might find your getting the headbands clips and slides but in a different theme each time. I think it is one of a kind idea and lots of fun accessories for you hair but am guessing am on the fence if I was to keep it as a monthly thing.

The other thing is this website have a crazy cute range of stuff to buy from the online store which is worth checking out . I also purchased a pastel flower hair band which I plan to use for a wedding am off to later in the year, I saw it and was like -THAT IS PERFECT! once I got it I was over the moon when it pulled my outfit together! So please do check out the shop the have too!

Christmas shopping


Hello everyone, my goodness it is getting so cold! Okay I admit that a person who feels the cold all the time. Which does not make much sense when am living in Scotland, Right?
So I have made a start to my Christmas Shopping ,when I think about it. It is almost done!
Yesterday I went out to a shopping centre with my wee family and bought a few more gifts for my friends.Its only a week in November and am poor already! I think its due to the fact I got back online ans soon as my change of address details changed over I was itching to get spending for Christmas and treat myself! Having no internet really scarred me...(drama queen, Blogger 1st world problems LOL!) 


So on a whim we went to a near by shopping centre after my Doctor appointment- Ive got a trapped nerve in my neck that is effecting my left hand nerves too.  *Sobs* 

Nothing a bit of retail therapy can not help right? I finished of 3 gifts and got myself a new 2 new belts as my jeans slide down - Don't you hate being stuck between sizes!!
So here is some photo spam for you all!


The centre had its Christmas decorations up the size of those ball's hanging from the roof was a bit scary. I hope they don't fall!!
 

I love white Christmas trees something magic about them hehe 


Am guessing that seat is for a VIP nearer Christmas...not gona catch me near him though, Did you know I am completely scared to death of folk who dress up as Father Christmas, Really creeps me out!

The bear and the polar animals are so cute though.



Some Images below the tree so sparkly and glittery.


How cute is this little display which was found at the main doors of the centre.

 I think the little bridge was really sweet, hehe.


After a good bit of wondering around the shops, avoiding Chibi's beans refusal of going into shops and tantrums we stopped for a bite to eat and drink.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?


I have been crazing Hot Chocolates of late am not sure why maybe cause they are so cosy and sweet!
so yummy!I also got a cherry muffin. 
It was super yummy and freshly baked too. When I got back home I found a ''sorry you were out card.''After some debate with Hubby over who's parcel it might be. We had to wait a while till we could go to the post office to collect it. But lucky for me Hubby went out to pick it up,to my delight it was for me, Haha! Yea he when in the huff as he is waiting on lots of pieces for the computer and wires and all that geeky techi stuff of his.


What was inside?! Well it was my long awaited Rilakkuma bear!


a Neko Plush, (to go with my other one from MCM Scotland.) 2 sheets of Stickers and a dust plug for my phone in the shape of a bow in hot pink. Ypu can check out my instagram on the link for more photos.
As well as a busy day I have also been working on a new side project called ''Kawaii Kraze'' I hope to do a post about it real soon!
Lots more to come to the blog!

Magical Nails, BarryM review.

Hello Cuties! Hope you are all well and staying super cute ,I am sure you all are!
So I have a review on some new polishes for you all these are from BarryM, My most loved brand for nail polish ever hehe.
Just of late they have brought out these sparkly pretties out and there is a few to pick from as well. I bought 3 of them and really want to get the other one.


You can get these in Duchess ,Princess , Lady , Countess and Majesty. I got the following Duchess the golden shade, Princess in the pink shade and Lady or pear white is called, in the white shade. They were also on a 3 for 2 offer when I went in Boots.
I love how magical anime princess like these shades are...to cute!


These are from the textured range, so when they dry the polish has some texture on the nails.
These shades are so cute! They come in the well recognised polish bottles that BarryM do.


Here on the ring finger is the Princess colour against the Duchess,The Princess is pink in colour and very girly I think its name is very fitting!


Here is the Duchess with the ring finger with Lady,I love the white one as it looks very Christmas like and reminds me of frosty snow outside its very pretty on and it was this shade  that I really wanted to buy. The Duchess is a mature shade of matt colours of dull pink, I cant quite pick out its shade it looks golden or nude brown with a hint of pink!?  Its a nice shade that I could wear when ever I want to get  a hint of sparkle. Cant keep a girl from some Sparkle right ?!
The Glitter also is a range of big and small particles. They need about 2 coats to get a nice shade and coverage and dry really fast.I think the lady and princess ones are my favourites. The only down side  about these is it takes a while to remove all the glitter and sparkles off... 
Please do check out Barry M more so on the facebook page as they have a game you can play where you can win prizes and discounts!

I hope you all enjoyed my magical nail review on these pretty nail polishes! 
Till next time..
