Small haul - HMV + Superdrug

Today I'm just writing a really quick and easy post to share with you some of the items which I have picked up recently from HMV and Superdrug, so here goes!
The first few things I picked up were these Disney DVDs from HMV. They were £12.99 each but were on offer at buy one get one free so I decided to pick up Brave, Monsters University and Tangled (and nemo but left that round a friends house, woops!) I absolutely love all Disney DVDs and i'm hoping to get the whole collection - i'm such a big kid!
 The next thing I got was from Superdrug and it is from the Naturally Radiant range, it's the Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. I've heard so much about cleansers like this so I thought I would pick it up and give it a try. This was £2.98 when I bought it due to there being a 50% off skincare but originally it sells for £5.99. 
 Also from Superdrug I got 2 of the Revlon Colour Burst Lacquer Balms in the shades Demure and Coquette. Demure is a simple nude shade with glitter in and Coquette is a medium pink. These were £7.99 each but they were on buy one get one half price! I've worn them both a few times already and I love them.

Is there anything that you've picked up recently and are loving?

Bloggers do spring better - nails

Today's post is going to be about the first topic for the #Bloggersdoitbetter challenge! I was contacted by Gem and she told us that the first post will be all about Spring and it could be anything you like it to be. 

I'm going to be writing about my favourite Spring nail polish which I recently purchased from Poundland, (yes poundland!!) I was so shocked to see the amount of different make up items that are available in stores like Poundland. Most of them are all the terrifying colours which people wouldn't go near, but after a little rummaging I found this gorgeous nail polish by Sally Hansen. 

The first thing that stood out to me was obviously the colour, it was the perfect red-y, orange-y, coral colour - perfect for Spring! The shade is "sonic boom" which is super cute. The fact that it is part of the "insta-dry" range blew me away, I'm always the impatient one that messes up hours of nail art with smudging. I love the formula, the pigmentation is amazing, only one coat is needed for it to be fully opaque! In the pictures, I have added two coats but it really isn't needed. It chips fairly easily but I haven't tried it with a top coat yet so maybe that will stop it! 

What's your favourite Spring nail polish colour?

#Bloggersdoitbetter Challenge!

Hey everyone! Again, I'm so sorry I haven't posted for a while, it's that time of the year where school work really does take priority. I'm drowning in revision and work to prepare for exams, I don't have enough time to see my friends let alone write a blog post! But anyway, onto the reason for this post.

Touch Of Belle

A few weeks back I was contacted by Gem from Touch Of Belle asking if I would like to get involed in the #Bloggersdoitbetter challenge. Of course I said that I would love to join as I already participate in the 2014 blogger challenge so this will be another thing for me to become a part of. 

I'm not sure if you can still ask to join this challenge as this post is a little bit late. However if you are involved in the challenge please let me know as I would love to discuss ideas and read your posts. The whole idea of the challenge is to write about a certain topic every fortnight which you are told via e-mail. If you would like to find out more you can go here. I really hope you all enjoy my posts for the challenge!
