OOTD : Epic Weekend @ Bolton Abbey

Sawasdee ka~
Another short adventure for my boyfriend and me again. It was a lovely Saturday last week. The weather had been really great so far. Pretty hot and Sunny. We went to Bolton Abbey in the afternoon. For someone who interested in going there using public transport make sure you check bus timetable before hand. It is an excellent place to go in a very hot day because you can also swim in the river and enjoy the sunshine. I saw many families went there for BBQ and sun bathing too.  Apart from enjoying the riverside, the things that you should not be missed are the stepping stones that lay across the river and also the walk trail through the woodland.

The look I went for was a mixture of 90's and 80's style. The main ideas are croptop and contrast colours (yellow and purple).  To rock to total look I also did a milky braids hairstyle :)

Croptop : H&M
Skater skirt : Ebay
Sunglasses : Topshop
Bag : Topshop
Purple watch : Marc Jacobs
Earrings and ring : Thai market
Sandals : Primark
Lipstick : MAC in Kelly OSbourne Collection "Dodgy Girl"
Location: Bolton Abbey

What do you think about my outfit, yayy or nayy?

SWATCHES & REVIEW : Essie For Summer 2014

Sawasdee ka~
About beginning of the month while I was wandering around Boots, I spotted  a white box with 3 mini nail polish bottles on Essie shelf and get drawn to them. Essie brought out 3 collection for this summer but I like this one the most. For the whole set, it's called Summer 2014 Collection. Okay, maybe not the whole set but just these 3 colours that come in a box (there are 2 more colours in the collection). The colours are just sooooooo pretty ^____^ All of the polishes are opaque so 2 coats is actually enough to give a nice pigmented finish. They glide on really well, smooth and no streak.

Roarrrrange the name somehow made me think about Sullivan from Monster, Inc. Anyway, it is a bright orange shade. It is the colour for Summer 2014!  It’s a creamy base but on the first coat it appears sheer, then by the 2nd coat I was able to achieve a nice pigmented colour

Haute In The Heat is a raspberry red. Although it's not the most unique shade but really pretty on!

Ruffles & Feathers is an emerald green my favourite out of 3. This polish totally caught my eye when I saw on the display. It gives a feeling of the tropics all over it.
RRP £12.99 you can buy it here
Have you bought any new nail polish this summer?

The Glamour Beauty Summer Edit Box

Sawasdee ka~
Beauty box subscription has landed to beauty blogger world for a few years now. To be honest I love the idea of getting lots of items in one box but I don't really like guessing what are it in the box.  So this is the first beauty box I have ever purchased and this beauty box has no subscription and I know what is inside before hand.

Glamour magazine's beauty editor, Alessandra Steinherr, collaborate with Latest in Beauty and brought out the Glamour Beauty Edit Boxes that are bursting with goodies. In a box you will find 9 different products with a bargain price of £16.95 with no delivery charge. The products are worth over £86 if you buy individually! I'm so excited when the lovely postman delivered the box to me last week. I'm really surprise by the box size (thought it would be bigger) and have no idea how they pack full size products in the box. Let's see what I get below:
❤︎ Rimmel sun shimmer instant tan BB skin perfector : For someone who has no chance to go anywhere this summer but want to get some tan. This is a must-have item. It's a subtle instant glow without an orange or streaky finish. It's a wash off formula that promises to last up to 24 hours. I'm still not sure whether it lasts for that long I only try it on my boyfriend once but I love the colour.

❤︎ Toni&Guy volume plumping whip : This product just sounds great! It promises to give a smooth and supersized 'do without a crunchy feel. Who doesn't like a va-va-voom hair?

❤︎ Magnigibres brush-on false lashes : I heard lots of good reviews about this product but still not really sure whether I want it as I personally have long eyelashes. It's good that this product include in a box so I can try it out. I probably do a full review on it later when I use this product long enough.

❤︎ Illamasqua glamore lipstick : Illamasqua has launched new nude lipstick collection about 2 weeks ago and when I know that this is included in a box I just feel like I'm over the moon. I have been wanting this lipstick collection before it's even launch and I'm sure I will buy more. The lipstick finish is not matte like other Illamasqua lipstick but it's moisturising with soft and buttery feel. The lipstick itself cost £18.50 and the box only costs £16.95. Can you see why this box is worth it?

❤︎ Bourjois cream blush : This is another product that I really want to try but never have a chance to buy it (I always go for lipstick stead lol). I got it in shade number 3 "rose tender" which is a shimmering soft pink. I have found this blush is easy to wear, the cream-to-powder formula ensures they last well. (Each box contains one of 3 shades)

❤︎ DHC deep cleansing oil : I have heard of this cleansing oil for many years. It used to be a famous cleansing oil around Asia. I never used it though so this is a good time to try out. This cleanser contains vitamin E and hydrating olive oil. It will unclogs pores and get red of dirt and grime.

❤︎ Crabtree&Evelyn nail lacquer : I didn't actually know that Crabtree & Evelyn did nail polishes! This is a super glosssy, non-toxic varnish. It's a long-wearing and pretty shock-resistant. I got a classic bright red with a fine shimmer polish. I have been wearing it for 4 days now and it's still look fresh, shiny and the most important thing is it's not chip yet! Impressive <3

❤︎ Hawaiian tropic satin protection ultra radiance sun lotion SPF30 : I normally use sunscreen from Banana Boat but for people who don't really like sunscreen smell(you know what I mean) I think Hawaiian Tropic is another choice you you. It has a beachy coconut scent that also offer a great sun protection.

❤︎ Velvotan the original tanning mitt : Last product now. It is mitt that will help you achieve a flawless streak-free self tan without any stains on you hands. You can wash away the tan from the surface and re-use as many times as you like. It will work perfectly with Rimmel BB skin perfector :)

I am extremely impressed with this box, it's like buying one amazing product and getting 8 other things for free. Bargain!! If you are interested you can buy it from the Latest In Beauty site.
