Gift Vouchers Bloggers Challenge

Hello everyone! 

I've seen a few beauty bloggers taking on this challenge from this site to win some vouchers for different stores. It says the challenge is over on the 9th of November, but on their latest post, it has been extended to the 11th! 
Here's the prizes they have mentioned on their site;
  • ASOS Gift Voucher worth £35
  • Topshop Gift Card worth £35
  • Gift Certificate worth £35
  • 3 Month Subscription
  • £35 Gift Voucher
There will be 2 winners and each get to pick a £35 voucher! I think that's a fantastic prize!
You can read more on their blog post which I linked above, but sure I'll link it again!

What you have to do is pretty simple. You need to pick at least 5 gift ideas for Christmas, Birthdays and any other celebrations, which is pretty easy right? But, they all have to be under £35! That's the challenge. 

Anyways, I thought I'd give this challenge a shot. What's the harm? It's a bit of fun, especially when you're bored! Here's what I came up with;
(Click on the image to see it in full size, otherwise you can't read the writing!)

I know, I went a bit overboard! But anyways. Here's a list of links and websites and all sorts for you to check out!

I chose the Nandos items because personally, I love Nandos! And this gift would be ideal for anyone with a love for Nandos food! The fact they're on 3 for 2 in Boots is also a big bonus!

I chose the ModelsOwn Mirrorball Box Set because girls love nail varnish, and even better, they love glitter! The variety of colours is great, because you can nearly use them with any nail varnish you own already! I think the clear colour is a great addition to the set because you can never have enough clear nail varnishes!

I chose the two Nail Art Pen Set's from Argos because the colours caught my eye immediately. I love nail art myself and I find it quite hard to do with nail art brushes and dotting tools etc., these pens just look a lot easier to use! This would be great for someone starting out on nail artistry. 

I thought the Soap & Glory eyeshadow palette from Argos was a good bargain! I think this would be ideal for a sister or a friend or any other girl! Its good quality nude colours are especially good for people who are maybe starting out with eyeshadow, or people who just love neutral colours. It's also at a great price as you get kohl liner and liquid liner! Oh and the box is an attraction alone!

I picked the Soap & Glory mini hat box because who doesn't love Soap & Glory these days? It's so expensive to buy usually, so for a tenner, this is a bargain! Also, Soap & Glory's products are on a 3 for 2 offer as well, so make the most of it!

The last two products I chose were the Remington curling wand and the heated rollers. I chose these because they had gone down so much in price and also because I love them! I think these would be the ideal gift for a girl who loves doing her hair and also for the back-combers! How much damage are they doing to their hair by brushing it backwards? The answer is, a LOT! So the rollers would be super for them!

So there you have it! That's my little entry to this challenge! You guys should definitely try this challenge, it's fun and the prizes are amazing! I had a great time doing this! Check it out here!

Let me know if you're going to do this! Have you tried any of these products before? Are you going to? Leave any comments below! 

Thanks for reading,

Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter Review

Hey everyone!

I had been saying I was going to get this product for absolutely ages and I just wouldn't go into the shop and spend a measly tenner! Obviously from the title of this post you know I'm on about Lush's Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

"Head and shoulders, knees and toes. Knees and toes 
And don’t forget the cuticles
A super-thick cream choc full of rich ingredients to help you get to grips with dry bits. Knees, elbows, heels, nails and cuticles – all will benefit from some Lemony Flutter attention."

I've seen so many positive reviews about this product and seeing as I love painting my nails and keeping them healthy lately, I thought I just had to get this! As soon as I started using it, I started to notice my nails growing and being a lot healthier and stronger than usual. Why didn't I get this sooner!?

Anyways, instead of a big essay of why I love it and another essay on its flaws, as I always do in blog posts, I decided to do two lists of 'Pros' and 'Cons'! It makes it a lot easier for you guys to read and also for me to write!

  • First of all, the tub is big enough. It's a 50g tub, and let me tell you, a little goes a long way.
  • It's very moisturizing to your nails, cuticles, fingers and hands. You can use it on any dry patches you have. Such as your elbows, feet and your knees!
  • It almost works over night, well for me anyways.

  • It's quite expensive for the tub, it's just under €10 here in Ireland.
  • It has a very strong lemony scent, which can be very overpowering. But if you like that scent, then you're okay I suppose!
  • It expires after one year. If you don't use it daily like me, you might not get to finish it.
  • Lastly, it's very greasy/oily on your skin. But absorbs within 5-10 minutes usually. I find it best to put it on at night time because you don't be using your hands as much.

Here's a picture of my nails now. 
This is completely amazing for me as my nails have never been this healthy, or this long, well.. maybe this long but certainly not this strong! Have a look at this post and see what my nails were like just a few weeks ago. I really do believe that this product is helping them a lot. 

I'd recommend it to anyone! Family, friends, strangers, you guys, cats and dogs.. IT'S JUST AMAZEBALLS! Haha.

Let me know if you've tried this product and what you thought of it. Also let me know if you're thinking of buying it and just want some more information!

Thanks for reading everyone!
