Clarins after sun cream -review

So as you all probably know, its been REALLY hot the last couple of days. and i burn so easily. and i do not EVER go brown! i just go back white again :( so ive been looking for a decent after sun product.
as i got a bit of a pink back on Wednesday, i thought id do a quick review of this after-sun. 
It's by clarins, and is a lovely quality cream. its very thick and has a lovely scent to it. 
as soon as i put this on my skin it felt immediately soothed and cool. and took the sting away after one application. ill have to keep applying this and see if i turn brown at all, but id definitely reccomend this cream!

Lush/Body shop mini haul.

 i decided to go into lush today, and the body shop. so i thought id do a little mini haul :) from the body shop, i picked up a rain forest radiance detangling spray. even though my hair is short it's still quite thick, so tangles easily when wet. this smells gorgeous too, i use the rainforest radience shampoo so the smells match :)
 next i got a new bar of soap as ive ran out of soapp. this one is the orange scented one, and its LOVELY! the last thing i got was another of the 'born lippy' lipsticks. the lychee one is a clear lip balm with a hint of glitter to it. gorgeous! id love to collect all of the body shop lip balms :) 




From lush, i bought 2 of my favourite bath bomb ever. the 'space girl' bath bomb. i love its sweet smelling lovely glitteryness! :) i also bought another icle baby bot. which is also one of my favourites.
i wish lush did a loyalty card!
i aslo bought this lovely bubblegum lip scrub. it smells A-MAZING! and it leaves my lips feeling beautiul and silky smooth. plus its made from caster sugar so you can lick it off afterwards!


i also really wanted one of the 'dirty' body sprays, and shower gels. but didnt have enough money :( so i'll be putting a large online order in when i get some £££!

Jewellery Storage!

i thought id do a quick post on how i keep/store my jewellery.
i have all my 'expensive' jewellery in the boxes still. and have some of it in this gorgeous accessorize jewellery roll. i love jewellery rolls and i actually got this one because i loved the leather one my mam has, it has different compartments and somewhere to put your rings or earrings, i always put loads of jewellery in this for when i go away, its a great way of keeping all your jewellery safe whilst on the go!

next, ive got all my necklaces hanging over these hooks on my wardrobes (it spreads over onto my second wardrobe) i love this way of storing all my costume jewellery. i think these hooks were about £1.99 each from morrisons, so, cheap and cheerful! and all my jewellery is visible for when im deciding what to wear :)




my earrings are all in this little mirrored jewellery box which my gran bought me for my 16th. i love this, but its getting a little small now, as my earring collection is expending rapidly!

the rest of my jewellery and hair clips are in this acrylic box which just sits on my dressing table. this just has all the other bits (rings, braceletts, watches, etc.) i got this box in a big ted baker beauty set, but i believe theyre available in alot of places online :)


if youve got any questiones about any of my storage, or jewellery bits, just comment and let me know!

Twitter!!

So my lovelies. Would you all follow me on twitter? I'm interesting, honest!! www.twitter.com/plastiiquex

Favourite ever jewellery pieces

Tiffanys Dove Necklace
for anyone who knows me, they know i have a complete passion for jewellery! 
i adore beautiful metals, and anything with some sparkle. 
So i just thought i'd show you some of my personal all time favorite pieces. 
(by the way, most of these were 18th birthday presents. im not always buying extravagant jewellery) 

Tiffanys Return to. Pendant
 My first two pieces are both Tiffany bits. the first one is the classic 'return to Tiffanys' pendant (its a bit grubby at the moment because i haven't worn it in a while. but a quick dip in some silver polish will sort that.) my mum bought me this when she went to new york for thanksgiving, it was a christmas present, i love it!

The Second one was a present from my boyfriend for my 18th. its a sterling silver dove on a chain. its absolutely beautiful! tiffanys silver is totally gorgeous and worth the money. i wanted this for ages, and i love love love it!

Swarovski Crystal charm bracelett
 my next Favorite is my swarovski Crystal charm bracelet. i love charm bracelets because they can be added onto on Christmas birthdays, special occasions etc. i looked through a few different brands of charm bracelets, and different designs. but when i went into the swarovski shop and saw how sparkly the crystals were i just loved them. the chain and the 18 charm were a present from my gran for my 18th, the bow was also an 18th present. the heart, and bird and the locket were all Christmas presents. this is a piece which just gets nicer and nicer!

Blue topaz Earrings
Next is a pair of white gold earrings i recieved as a joint present between all my aunties and uncles. for my 18th birthday, again., lol like i said, theyre white gold, with a blue topaz stone set in them. which is my birthstone. and above the stone is a teeny tiny diamond, which is beautiful. i love these earrings. but save them for special occasions.
isle of wight peal braceletts

Next, is these two gorgeous pearl bracelets. They're From the pearl shop in the isle of wight. For those who have never been to the isle of wight, the pearl shop is quite a large attraction. i absolutely love it. its huge, and has a couple of different jewellery shops attached to it. we always visit the shop at least once every holiday. and i love getting some pearls as a cheeky holiday treat. Plus theyre local isle of wight fresh water pearls, which i think makes them even more special!
Disney Couture bangle

Last but not least is this Disney couture bangle. i couldn't get a decent picture of it. as there's so many lovely bits on it. I think they're gold plated. and mine has baby pink enamel Around it. All of the bangles have some sort of Disney quote on them. this one Says "have faith in your dreams" Which i believe is a quote from cinderalla. And anyone who knows me, knows im an old school Disney lover! i adore all of the classic Disney films. So this was perfect. This was a gift from my boyfriend, and i think its From asos. so go check out the whole collection. :)

Thanks for reading, And i LOVE seeing peoples jewellery collections. So, what are your fave jewellery pieces?

everyday eye makeup :)

soo, i was bored, and finally remembered to do pictures thismorning! so i thought id show a quick 'everyday eyes' tutorial :) 

 start off using some sort of eyelid primer, i use the ELF one, in gold. because i wear gold eyeshadow, it just helps build up the colour :) then i usually use a cream gold shadow, then a powder. then line your eyes with white pencil. and put a little sparkly white shadow in the corner of your eyes.







add a sweep of liquid eyeliner over your lid. i use banefit magic ink as i feel it stays all day (: 
add some mascara and define your brows, i love benefit brow zings. 
and youre done!

Skincare/Liz Earle Review



So.. i thought i'd do a little post on my skincare routine, although its all liz earle. so its more of a review... so, i know alot of people are raving about these products, but i just have to say; 

Liz Earle!
i love all these procucts, ive been using them for about a year now so thought id do a review! 



Cleanse and Polish: i love this, doesnt everyone? its lovely and creamy, and has a gorgeous natural smell to it. id definitely recommend this cleanser to anyone, especially somebody with sensitive skin like mine. i love the method of using the muslin cloths with it aswell. i use the body shop ones. i did use the liz earle ones, but moved to the body shop ones as theyre thicker, and better quality. 

Instant skin boost tonic: i love this product, im not usually keen on toners, and used to use a nutrimetics one, but hated the scent, but again this has a lovely natural flowery scent to it. it makes the skin feel refreshed, and just, lovely! i use this in a little spirtzer bottle which i got free at some point with a gift set, i just fill it up from the full sized bottles :) 

Skin Repair moisturiser: This is my sort of.. night time moisturizer, bacause i use my body shop Illuminating cream in the mornings. but this moisturiser is very thick and creamy, and has the same gorgeous scent to it. ive got acne and this skin reair misturiser has worked brilliantly on toning it down. plus its brilliant for putting on new tattoos! lol :) 

Face Masks: I use two different facial masks, 'intensive nourishing' and 'deep cleansing'. the nourishing face mask is a white face mask, which feels a little more like a thick cleanser. when removed it leaves your skin with a lovely glow to it. The deep cleansing mask is like a thick mud mask. it leaves you feeling thoroughly cleaned and fresh.

So anyway, i ADORE all of these liz earle products, just visit the website to see loads more, and theyre quite often on QVC, so id definitely reccomend having a look!

T❤ttoos & piercings

okay so, i dont have many, but i thought id do a blog post anyway, 
My first tattoo was on my wrist, it says 'familia' which means family in latin, sort of obvious, lol!
i got this because i love every person in my family. theyre the most special people to me in the world. i got this to show that family are the most important people in my life. the three birds Represent my mother, father, and brother. 

My second tattoo is on the back of my neck, and again, is a family based design, It's 2 B's, facing eachother, intwined. my mum and dads names are Brian and Belinda, so obviously, thats that. And then an anchor in the middle, Representing the strength and security my mum and dad give me (soppy, i know)
i love this tattoo, although it isnt finnished yet, the anchor needs some colours on it!

i dont really have piercings, but i would love to have more, i want my tounge and my noce done, i only have my ears pierced at the moment. i need them done a couple more times though, because, as you can see. i have a massive earring collection!!

Body shop Illuminating moisturiser

i picked up this lovely illuminating moisturiser from the body shop, as ive been looking for one for a while but all of the high end prices are far too much.
i saw this one in the body shop for £10 and thought id give it a try,
its got a lovely pale pinky kind of glow to it. And leaves a really nice dewy bright look to the skin. 
itd also really nice to apply right before your makeup. id say this is more of a morning cream. than a night cream. id definitely recommend this product!
