Sorry, I have not posted for a while, I have been on holiday/vacation so have not had time to post!

Anyway, this post is not beauty related and is about a book I have been obsessing over lately..

The Hunger Games Trilogy

oh wow, where do I start, these books are amazing! If you have not seen the film I would definitely read the books before as they are much more detailed! I have not seen the film as I am waiting until they all come out - the suspense would kill me!

Have you read the books? What do you think of them?

new post

so, those of you who have seen my previous posts would know I only post about beauty products or my Glossy box's! So now i'm gonna post about lifeee - welcome to the new + improved 'hi its liv' blog :-)!

anywayy new post #1

A few nights ago a bat flew into my room having left the window open because it was hot. a bat. i mean seriously. a bat. which is strange seeing as I live in London. so yeah there I was screaming at 3;o'clock in the morning while a bat flew around my room in circles. It took me+my dad at least 20 minutes to get it out using a towel. so yeah, interesting story right?;)

Glossy Box June 2012


Sorry this is a bit late! I've been so busy! (You may notice my photos are better! WOW Instagram is the best woo)  soo, I recieved my Glossy Box yesterday (Tuesday 19th June) and was VERY excited however to be honest I was not entirely pleased, wanna know why?... keep reading!

You all know what it looks like...oh well:)

The menu type thingy;p

Agent Provocateur Eua de Toilette Collection (Full size, £39.00/50ml)
Includes 3 Samples

From L-R  Agent Provocateur Maitresse ,  Agent provocateur L'Agent and Agent Provocateur
I was quite annoyed when I recieved these perfumes because I also recieved 2 perfume samples last month (see 'Glossy Box May 2012'). Apart from this I do like these perfumes, the pink one is probably my least favourite as it is quite strong and overpowering. The other two smell nice but they are not exactly my style. Sorry I'm not very good at describing scents so ill just say they're nice and you'll have to trust me!

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick (Fullsize £19.00/12g)


Shades: row 1 from L-R Nude, Porcelain, Row 2 from L-R Sand, Opal, Row 3 from L-R Bronze, Light

Personally, this is what I was really annoyed about because, there are 6 different shades of concealer in this sample and to be honest my skin colour only fits one of what am i supposed to do with the rest? Another thing is that there is not much product to test out even if your skin colour suits all samples! Very disappointed.

Glossy Box Serie Exclusive Pro Beauty Brush (£15.00 each)

This blusher/bronzer brush is one of the few products actually made by Glossy Box. It is made using goat hair for 'a supersoft application'. This brush has a nice handle making it easy to hold. This brush however does not feel especially soft or comforting but the bristles are good for blending. I would not buy this brush because it is not exactly 'soft' or 'smooth' and the price is a bit high for a brush like this.

Yves Rocher France Mini Mascara Ultra-Volume Sexy Pulp (Fullsize £16.90/9ml)

wow just look at the brush!
This mascara is probably one of the best I have ever used! Its brush is huggeeee and specifically shaped to suit your lashes! I actually can't explain how much I love it! Its a bit pricey at £16.90 a go but totally worth it!

BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer (Fullsize £8.00/4g)

This bronzer is quite cheap at £8.00 and is definatly worth it! It is VERY golden and looks very nice if applied with the right amount! However can go extremely wrong if too much is applied! Not really much else   I can say about this bronzer, it has a nice consistency and feels very light on your skin!

So that is everything i got in my Glossy Box June 2012! As i said I was not entirely pleased with this but there were some things I would use!

What did you get in your Glossy Box?

Weleda Wild Rose Night Cream - May 2012 Glossy box

Weleda Wild Rose Night Cream

This product was featured in the May 2012 Glossy box! This product is a really nice night cream! It feels lovely on your skin! Personally i do not like the smell but many people have commented on how they like the smell, its a very rosey smell however its a bit too strong for me!
