Seventh Weekly Make-Up Tag - Halloween Looks

Hi peeps, this weeks make-up tag was Halloween ... why, well its self explanitory I guess lol. I don't really believe in Halloween to be truthful but its a bit of fun. I was lost for ideas if I'm honest but then I have been so caught up since the past two weeks, I was coming around from being ill, nasty cold sores, Eid shopping and Eid. You'll know I aren't one for taking part but unfortunately I couldn't this week, Friday was Eid so I spent weekend at my mums, sold my car and hubby bought a new one, not just that I have my bro, sis and nephews at mine so its been really hectic. I am really sorry guys I do feel upset and a let down for not taking part =[ once again I'm sorry.

Gemma ( @gemmabutton ) who usually takes part isn't well and has kidney stones so please can we all share her some love. Also Nalini ( @themadeupmaiden ) isn't well but still took the effort to take part.

Stone Beauty Dead Sea Bath Salts with Lavender Review

Stone Beauty were holding a competition on Twitter I had never heard of them but thought I'd join in just to try my luck. All I had to do was tweet them with a product I would like to win, I chose 'dead sea bath salts with lavender'. Lavender has been known for healing, soothing and relaxing for many years and has got more popular with time. 

Lavender is a ingredient I will always cherish as it helped me alot after giving birth I had second degree stitches OUCHHHH. So I used to use it in hot baths and it really did work some wonders so for that I will always love it. Dead sea bath salts another very common and well known ingredient which is now found in many different types of forms and products. these two reasons are why I chose this product.

To my luck I won! 



What Stone Beauty say:
Description and Benefits
Dead sea salts are well known for their healing and therapeutic qualities which include calming relief for dry skin and eczema, soothing and softening the skin and relieving joint and muscle tension. Lavender essential oil has a soothing and calming effect.
Directions for use: Pour into running bath water, soak, pat skin dry. Use within 6 months of opening.
Ingredients: maris sal (100% pure sea salts from the Dead Sea), lavandula angustifolia (lavender essential oil), limonene, linalool, geraniol (naturally occurring allergens in essential oil).

What I thought:
Amazing packaging I now use this for other purposes, the lavender and dead sea bath salts really did relax my body and muscles, the smell of lavender was pretty strong tbh but I really don't mind it. Overall great product loved it. Here is a link to Stone Beauty if you fancy checking out the rest of their stuff. I am looking into buying a lip balm.

Funky Divaa Haul

Its been hauls madness for me lately and I'm loving it =D This haul is a fashion/clothing one. I first discovered Funky Divaa in my early days of joining Twitter about 6-7 months ago. At the time it was their birthday and they had a 50% off promotion code I took full advantage and a big risk and just ordered. I had never heard of them so never knew what the quality of the clothing would be like, if I can remember I spent a fair amount aswell. I loved all my clothes and still wear them now.

The prices are amazing and affordable for good quality clothes and was above my expectations if you ask me. I've recently been hauling makeup/beauty products so much that I felt the need for a clothes haul. I started off with looking for a waterfall blazer and Funky Divaa had one I really liked not to forget they had 30% off so I added to basket and kept browsing and adding more to the basket lol I'm sure many of you will have been there and done it.

Here's the lovely clothes I ordered:



Have you bought from Funky Divaa? If not here is their link check them out for top trends at low affordable prices x

Models Own Haul

If your a nail polish lover then no doubt you will have heard/seen Models Own had a 50% off offer on for reaching an amazing amount of likes on their Facebook. If I'm honest I loved painting my nails and keeping upto them but wasn't overly into all the designs and giving them that extra oomph because I always had acrylics until recently I have been loving the glitters and then expanded from there on I love nail wraps, decals, nail art pens, double tone nail varnishes and loads more =].

So seeing this amazing sale I jumped to the opportunity and ordered literally a few minutes after the code was released I ordered four nail varnishes, two mini sets and a nail art pen. I waited enthusiastically I knew it would take longer for delivery than usual but got impatient when I was hearing everyone hyping over theirs. I gave in and ended up ordering again! This time I ordered 8 more nail varnishes I waited about 8 days for delivery but boy was it worth the wait =D.

Here's pics of what I ordered:












Hope you enjoyed =D xx

Sixth Weekly Make-Up Tag - Super Hero Looks

Its that time of the week peeps =D
A lot of the ladies couldn't take part this week due to commitments and some being ill hope you all get better and as you will know there is know pressure on anyone so if peeps have commitments I always encourage them towards them. Although you ladies didn't take part I know you'll still be a part of the team and looking out for this weeks post and that makes me feel really warm with love inside =] so big hugs and kisses to you all.

I found this weeks look to be fun if I'm honest at first I was clueless and tried looking for female super hero characters and then it sparked well it doesn't have to be female it can be male that's up to us how we interpret it into our own unique look. I've had a tuff time  with my lil man for the last 3 days straight with minimal sleep but luckily hubby took over for a while so I could complete my look and the post. Anyway my look is inspired by Robin from Batman.
