So, I would like to thank the fabulous Jen from Twenties Chic, you should all go on over to her blog and give her a follow! I was so happy and suprised when she nominated me, I love knowing that you all enjoy reading my blog <3

Jens Questions:

1) Why did you start blogging?
Well I started reading Tanya Burrs and Zoellas blogs a few years ago, so they inspired me to start. But I never thought anyone would actually read my blog, so I never went ahead and made one straight away. I am so glad I started at the beginning of the year though!
2) What is the story behind your blog’s name?
There isn't really a story, I just love sherbet lemon sweets and lipsticks :')
3) Gold or Silver?
4) What’s your favorite tv show currently on tv?
It has to be 'Made in Chelsea', I love reality TV.
5) What’s the best book you’ve read lately?
The Fault in Our Stars!
6) How do you de-stress?
I like to take bubble baths, or listen to some music.
7) Name something you learned recently.
To have more confidence in myself because my nerves hold me back.
8) What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who chew food with their mouth open, it's so disgusting!
9) What’s the best trip you’ve ever taken?
I have traveled all over Europe with my family, but the best trip has to be when the year 10 school trip to Barcelona. We went for a week by coach. Apart from getting sea sick, it was so much fun, we had a right laugh :'D
10) If you had to live in another decade, which would you choose?
That's a hard question. Maybe the 60's, the fashion was great and so was the music :)
11) Who is your fashion/style icon?
I love Zoe Suggs (zoella) style.
My nominations are ...

April Style Crush : Kate Middleton

Source :
Hello Lovelies :)
April saw the young royal couple travel around Australia and New Zealand, so with all her lovely outfits The Duchess of Cambridge has to be this months style crush. 
Source :
For a trip to the zoo, Kate wore this beautiful lemon sun dress with tan wedges. This outfit is perfect for a more relaxed day, but it still isn't too informal with it being a 'royal visit'.
Source :
Whilst on the beach in Australia on the 18th of April, Kate wore the lovely Zimmerman 'Roamer Dress'. I just love this look, it's so fresh and perfect for hot summer weather. I can see myself replicating this outfit for an evening out whilst on holiday.
Source :
In Queenstown, Kate sported a more relaxed look wearing dark skinny jeans, a checked shirt and a Zara blazer. This outfit is definitely my style, I just love a good blazer. It's great to see Kate supporting the high street brands too! Here is how I would get this look ...

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. If you have replicated any of Kate's looks from the Australia and New Zealand tour be sure to send me a picture on twitter! Let me know in the comments whose style you have been loving this month :)

Lots of love ...

NOTD, Timberlake and Birthday!

Hello Lovelies!
So far April has been super busy, we are off school and college in England for the Easter holidays, and I have had so much work and revision to do. It hasn't been fun and I haven't been able to spend that much time on my blog, but today I wanted to take a break and relax :)

Yesterday I went shopping in Asda (a supermarket here in Britain) and I went for a little look in the makeup section. I have never really took a look into the George makeup range, which is Asda's own line, but they had a sale on and the products looked really nice. I ended up putting two nail varnishes into my basket, a lovely blue colour and a nude which I have fallen in love with and am wearing today. They were both only £1 each - a great bargain. 
Shade 88, Pinball
On Monday the 7th of April I went to the Justin Timberlake concert in Manchester. If you follow me on twitter I have to apologize, that night I must have annoyed you because I tweeted so much about it! But he was so amazing, it has to be the best concert I have been to, and I have been to a lot. He did his new material, and also all of the classics. We had fab seats too, I did film some of it but my singing in the background sounds terrible and its embarrassing so I wont be sharing it :')

Then on April 14th it was my 18th birthday, all my family came round and we ordered in pizza and I had a lovely time. I was really lucky and my mum and dad put some money towards my new car, so I am very grateful. I thought I would share with you guys a few of the other presents I received. 
Jimmy Choo Perfume
The lovely gift that came with the perfume, I now use it to store my most used
creams and sprays on my dressing table
Black Old Skool Vans, as you all know I love my comfy shoes and these
will go with most outfits
I got this Hot Diamonds charm to go on my bracelet 
My new Jewelry box, I love it but it's hard to keep clean, hence all the fingerprints :) 

Thank you to everyone who sent me a birthday message. If you went to the Justin Timberlake concert be sure to let me know in the comments!

I hope you all have a lovely Easter ...

March Favourites

Hello Lovelies 

cant believe march is over already, this year is going so fast! 

So firstly for my beauty favourites of the month I have ...

1. MUA Shimmer Highlighter 
You can read the review I did on this highlighter here, after months of searching I finally got my hands on this product. It is definitely part of my everyday look now because it is not too much and just makes your skin look glowy and fresh.

2. NYX The Runway Collection Eyeshadow Palette : Super Model
I recently got this palette in the NYX sale for about £5.00 and I am really enjoying using these silvery colours, again it is something that has become an everyday use for me in march. 

Now for my skin related products I have ...

1. Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing Cleansing Lotion
Again you will have seen this product in the review I did at the beginning of the month. I still love this cleanser, it is perfect for my skin, it removes my makeup well and doesn't irritate it.

2. Garnier Start Afresh Refreshing Toner
After loving the Garnier cleansing lotion, I decided to part from my trusty Simple toner and give something else a chance. I bought the Garnier toner and I am glad I did! It leaves my skin feeling fresh  and clears away an last traces of makeup perfectly. 

3. The Body Shop Mango Shower Gel
This shower gel smells amazing :) I have tried other body shop shower gels but this one has definitely become my favourite.  

For fragrance I have ...

1. Armani Diamonds Rose
This has been my favourite perfume this march. It has a fruity scent, with raspberries and blackcurrant. I love the bottle too, it looks beautiful on my shelf.

My songs of march are ...

1. She Looks So Perfect : 5 Seconds Of Summer
Having been a fan of 5sos for like 2 years now, seeing them release their first official single has been surreal really. I feel like a mother watching her child go off on their first day of school :') I love this song so much, it's the perfect introduction to the 5sos sound for those who haven't heard of them before. So if you've not already watch the video here

Source :
2. Last Night : The Vamps
As all you guys probably know I am a huge fan of The Vamps, they released their video for Last Night at the end of February, and I cant stop listening to this song, I just know it's going to be on repeat through out spring. You can pre-order the single now, and be sure to check out the video here.

Thanks for all of your love over the past month, I really didn't think people would bother to read my blog but it means the world that you do and your comments always make me smile :)

Best Wishes....
