REVIEW - Diddybears

Hello everyone :)

This review is about Diddybears. If you don't know what Diddybears are then you are seriously missing out!! If your like me and love teddy bears then you need a Diddybear!!

A Diddybear is a handmade collectable bear made from the finest natural and hand-dyed wool. They are 6cm tall and can easily fit in the palm of your hand. They each have securely jointed limbs which have the same cute buttons to match their bow. They also come in a wide range of colours. When delivered they each come with their own little birth certificate which states their name, date of birth and things they like. They cost £12.99 which i think is a great price as they are all handmade.

I think they make perfect presents and are the cutest collectable bears I have seen!!

Now let me introduce you to my special Diddybear. Her name is Fanny :) She is so cute!!

The Diddybears online shop has a wide range of Diddybears to choose from and I'm sure you will find one to suit you! Have a look at and let me know what you think.

Millie also loves Diddybears although she isn't allowed to play with her she had a little cuddle....

TAG - Whats in my makeup bag?

I love reading these tag posts and also love watching them on YouTube :)
So i thought i would write my own.

So this is my makeup bag. Pink, glittery and girly just like me. It does get a little bit annoying when i find bits of glitter everywhere but i love it too much to get another. I can't remember where it was from but i know it wasn't expensive. 

This is the contents of my makeup bag :) I have a foundation brush, blusher brush, Natural Collection Loose Powder in Warm Translucent, Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 103 True Ivory, 17 Miami Pop Bronzer, MUA blusher in shade 2, Maybelline the Falsies Mascara in Black, MUA Eye Shadow in shade 16, a Primark eyelash curler, Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer in 2 Natural, Natural Collection concealer in Medium and finally an MUA Lip Gloss in shade 2. 

This is a look at some of the products for you. First is the MUA Lip Gloss which i think is such a pretty colour, next is the MUA Blusher which again is a really pretty colour and lastly the MUA Eye Shadow. The best thing about these products is that they are just £1 each!! 

I'm a pretty simple girl when it come to everyday makeup so i don't really use that many products on a day to day basis. 

Thanks for reading and if you want any reviews on any of these products just let me know :)

Handmade Jewellery - Michele Dawn

I recently found this website which sells beautiful handmade jewellery, ranging from earrings to wedding jewellery.

I found the website through a Twitter competition that I won. The pieces on the website are gorgeous and beautifully made by Michele. The prices are affordable and good value for money.

Above is the beautiful necklace i won. It is an Obsidan gemstone on a sterling silver necklace and I love it!! My picture really doesn't do the necklace and justice. Take a look at the website, you won't be disappointed :)

This is me wearing my necklace :)

I wore it with a plain black vest and jeans so the focus could really be on the necklace! 

Thank you for reading and let me know if you buy anything!!

REVIEW - 17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish

17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Forever

This nail polish is so pretty, i am in love!! I have wanted a really pretty nude for ages and my search is finally over and best of all its only £2.99 :)

Although it is only £2.99 don't let that fool you, the colour is gorgeous and it lasts 5 days with no chips!! What more can you ask for?

I love wearing this when i want my nails to look clean and polished. It is perfect for when you don't want really bright nails but you want some colour. 

Are nudes a favorite of yours? Any other i should try out?

Thanks for reading,

The Life of Millie!!

Baby Millie 7/8 weeks old

REVIEW - Bourjois So Laque Ultra Shine “Paris Show Time” Collection

These 7 nail enamels from Bourjois are GORGEOUS!!!! 

L-R Rouge Fashionista 41, Lime Catwalk 38, Magenta Show 43, Jaune Trendy 39, Orange Creation 42, Bleu Model 44, and Violet Couture 40

The colours are very bright and summery. They go on well and have very nice applicators. They all have ultra shine and even look fab without a top coat (see pictures below) I would recommend using a top coat to ensure longer lasting wear. Mine lasted a good 5 days with two coats plus a top coat :) Also make sure to use and base as you don't want the colour to stain your natural nail.

Rouge Fashonista 41

Lime Catwalk 38

Magenta Show 43

Jaune Trendy 39

Orange Creation 42

Blue Model 44

Violet Couture 40

My personal favourite colour is Magenta Show because i love pink nail enamels and own loads :) My least favourite is Lime Catwalk because i just can't see myself wearing a green nail enamel. 

They can be found in Superdrug now and from 13th July they will be available in Boots. Both stores will have 3 for 2 offers running so its easier to pick which you want :)

Which is your favourite?

REVIEW - 17 Summer Limited Edition Miami Pop Bronzer

I won this bronzer in a competition run on twitter and have fallen in love with it!

17 Summer Limited Edition Miami Pop Bronzer

It is available from and costs £4.99 which i think is quite reasonable. Plus if you are an advantage card holder you get 16 points :) Also they are giving away a free gift when you buy 2 or more 17 products online!

The packaging is very cute and summery. The product is very shimmery so you do have to be careful when applying it and use a soft touch but saying that it is very easy to blend. With this product i think the saying less is more is defiantly right!

It is perfect for summer and would suit all different skin tones. Don't be scared to try this bronzer if you have pale skin, it does look a little scary but just add a little at a time and you will be fine :)
