Good morning everyone! I don't know about you but I love catching up on blogs first thing in the morning, while I'm eating breakfast- I'm assuming that most of you do the same!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Rimmel 60 Second nail polishes, I've already spoken about the fact that I love the formula of these over on my You Tube channel. These ones in particular are from the new Rita Ora for Rimmel collection. Being honest, I don't know that much about Rita Ora, or her music, but I do love her makeup, she's definitely not afraid to play with colour and she loves a bold red lip like myself! I feel that this collection really reflects that as it has both nail polishes and glossy lip crayons in a variety of bright and bold colours.
I picked up three of the nail polishes;
Don't Be Shy: This is a gorgeous bright Barbie pink colour that I really needed in my collection. Pink isn't a colour that I go for in my outfit choices but I love it on nails and I actually didn't have one! (I know, I'm as surprised as you are). This looks beautiful on and is in my opinion a very classic pink colour.
Breakfast in Bed: As I mentioned in my recent haul video I absolutely love the colour of this! If you want to see what it looks like on you can check it out here. This is a beautiful pastel, minty blue that is such a perfect colour for spring. Personally I wouldn't wear this on my toes as I think it might look a little odd- I prefer dark colours! However this colour really pops on my hands, it's so bright and yet pastely at the same time and I just love it!
Oragasm: See what she did there? This is probably my least favourite colour of the three polishes. It's a very true orange shade, not coral or neon, but a sort of classic orange. Am I even making sense? This doesn't do much for my skin tone, it looks a little sickly and washed out next to my pale complexion. I find that corals suit me better as they are that bit brighter!
Overall, the formula of these is spot on, they're cheap and cheerful as well as long- lasting! They last about two days on me before chipping which is great for me as my nails are so weak and chip very quickly!

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it here on my blog., but my YouTube channel is not only about beauty products, I also review books and do some book hauls, so if that interests you go and check those videos out! This week I reviewed the classic Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, hope you enjoy! Don't forget to let me know what you think of this book, I'm always interested to hear what other people think about books especially if I didn't really like it! X

Just in case you missed it, I uploaded a new video over on my channel yesterday! It's a Penneys/Primark haul! As I mention in the video I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone with clothes and start building a more classic capsule wardrobe. So I've started off with some basics in this video, nothing too crazy! I hope you enjoy! X

Up until recently I have never really bothered with eyelash curlers, my lashes are very straight and short so I was convinced that nothing I did would really make that much difference. Oh how wrong I was, even for lashes as stubby as mine curlers make a difference!
I had previously owned some very cheap eyelash curlers from Penneys/Primark and I used them quite half-heartedly, however I decided that it was probably time to invest in some half decent ones, and I actually got these for Christmas.
I really love these, and since using them I can see such a difference that spending a little more on curlers makes. I find that with these I can really get right down to the root of the lash and give them a good squeeze without pinching my eyelid or any of that uncomfortable stuff! I try to hold them in place for at least twenty seconds, sometimes pumping them to get some extra curl. They really give my eyelashes some oomph and make my eyes look more open and awake!
