Dinki Belle Spring Blossom Nail Wraps | Review

Dinki Belle nail wraps bring 'Fashion to your fingertips', are non toxic and are kind to nails lasting up to 14 days! 

One thing about nail products like gel, is that it can leave nails damaged and can take a while to apply which is fine if you have the time to apply and remove it but when you don't, that's when easier methods come in handy! 

 I was sent a pack of the 'Spring Blossom' Nail Wraps* £6.99 to try. 

My first impression of the wraps is good, I love the fresh, Spring inspired design and the packaging is  simple but effective.
The pack contains 20 nail wraps, so lots to find a close fit for each nail and any left over can still be used even as a single statement nail. 

I found the application of the wraps extremely easy and the instructions were simple to follow. The application probably only took me 15 minutes to apply and as no drying time is required, I could get up and do something else straight after!

Overall I'm really impressed with the nail wraps and love the fact that Dinki Bell have lots of different pre printed designs to suit any mood or occasion.
The whole collection of wraps can be found online at, along with tips, tricks and tutorials.

My Simple Skincare | Routine

Until recently, skincare was important to me but the products I was using weren't. 
Using mismatched products and brands, I decided that it was time to base my skincare around one that would work for me.

I decided I wanted affordable products and they had would work well with my teenage skin.  After researching online I decided that Simple Skincare products sounded best for me and went on to buy some of the range. 
Simple Skincare
In total I bought 4 products from the 'Simple' Skincare Range, a face wash, an eye balm and two moisturisers and all are under £5 each at full price (I bought mine on offer at half price).

The face wash I bought was the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash Gel £3.39. This face wash leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh without stripping the oils from my skin that usually leaves my skin feeling tight. This face wash also contains vitamins to soften and smooth skin.

The eye balm is the Simple Kind To Eyes Soothing Eye Balm £3.65. This is used by patting in thin layer of product under eyes, morning and night. Since using this eye balm, I have found that my concealer applies much nicer and doesn't crease as much as it used to and the skin under my eyes feels much softer. 

One of the moisturisers is the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser £4.19. I bought this one to use in the morning and it gives me a perfect base for my makeup as its so light and leaves my skin feeling soft.

The other moisturiser is the Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser £4.19. Being a rich moisturiser I use this one at night, although it don't find it feels any heavier on my skin.
Both moisturisers are best used in light upwards motions when being applied to the skin.

Since changing my skincare products to simple my skin feels much healthier, smoother and looks improved. 
Soon I would like to add more products from the range into my routine like the Micellar Water, toner and face wipes but for now I am really happy with my skincare!

Pink Parcel | Monthly Subscription Box

Today I have a review of a monthly subscription box by Pink Parcel. This subscription box is different to others as it's a box specifically designed to help you feel better at 'that time of the month'!
Pink parcel works by giving you three dates, meaning you choose the one closest to your period, a wide range of sanitary product brands so you can chose your most preferred and you will be sent out a box every month a few days before your period.
Pink parcel review
Today I have the April box* from Pink Parcel to give you an insight as to what the box generally contains every month.
Pink parcel review
Each box contains a 'for you' pack with some treats to cheer you up, a 'for bedtime' pack with some of your chosen sanitary products, a 
'for now' pack containing your sanitary products for general use, a 'keep these in your bag pack' to make carrying sanitary products with you so much easier, a 'for down there' pack with some freshening up wipes and a pack of bags to dispose your sanitary products in!
In every box the 'For you' pack contains a mixture of treats which change every month! Here is a list of products that the April box contained:
Npw Pomegranate & paw paw Face Mask
A Mallow & Marsh Bar
Teapigs Camomile Flowers tea bag
True Brit London Pink Parcel Nail Polish
Nairn's Rough Oatcakes
Booze Body Care French Martini Hand Cream
A product from New Cid Cosmetics
The parcel contains lots of products to last you through your period and give you the choice as to what sanitary product they send you and even your favourite brand. 

Pink Parcel even go as far as thinking about the disposing of your products when out and about as sometimes it can be difficult and not as discrete as it should be and by sending out freshen up wipes mean you can always feel clean and fresh.

Overall I love the idea of this subscription box! It comes in plain  packaging so your postman won't have any idea what's inside the parcel and contains so much stuff for just £12.99 (including P&P) however new subscribers to the box get their first box for £9.95!

Having the box sent each month would definately give you a 'Pick me up' and not knowing what bits and pieces the box is going to contain makes opening it up exciting.

All information and to start a pink parcel subscription can be found on the website:
