Baking: Vanilla Cupcakes

Friday, 30 October 2015

Whilst having my niece's and nephew, Megan, Louie and Mia up to stay with us for a week, it only made sense to do some baking with them. We chose to bake some cupcakes with vanilla extract mixed in with them and then topped with a mint green buttercream icing and a few decorations.

So here is the recipe that I use whenever I choose to make some cupcakes:

The Body Shop Haul

Wednesday, 28 October 2015
A couple of weeks ago now The Body Shop were doing an offer that was just too good not to take advantage of, the offer this time was if you spent over £50.00 you could get £25.00 off of your end total, which I personally think is brilliant.

The Body Shop Vs Sniffy Wiffy

Wednesday, 21 October 2015
Why comparing these 2 handcreams I hear you ask?!

Just lately I've managed to try handcreams from both of these companies, and luckily they are both in the same scent aswell which is Mango.

The Body Shop handcream I received for free with an order I made online a little while ago and the handcream from Sniffy Wiffy came inside the September's version of the Bloggers Beauty Box.
After using them both for a little while, the idea for this blog post came into mind and so here I am currently writing it up.

Tanya Burr: Nail Varnish Review

Tanya Burr - Nail Varnish Review

A few weeks back now I was having a look online at the Superdrugs website and noticed that they had sets of nail varnishes by Tanya Burr on sale at just £2.00 each, I think this was just down to them being in the old packaging as her new stuff had just been released. So obviously I decided to buy 3 sets, 2 sets being the same as I'm doing one as a giveaway as soon as I reach one of my blog goals, I won't say what blog goal it is just yet I'm gonna leave that as a surprise until I get it.

Primark Travel Mugs

If you follow me over on Instagram @nailbeautylife then you may have figured out by now that I'm slightly obsessed with coffee.....maybe coffee is the reason I don't sleep too well of a night time?!

Wilkinson's Dry Shampoo

Wednesday, 14 October 2015

We all know by now what dry shampoo is and how much of a lifesaver it can be when you just have not got the time to wash your hair, may it be you've slept past your alarm and your in a rush to be somewhere, or your just too lazy and don't like washing your hair everyday....I'm guilty of that one haha.

Halloween: Ghoulish Nail Tutorial

Monday, 12 October 2015
Today's blog post as promised in the newly set blogging schedule is a nail blog post.

So I thought I would start off with an easy Halloween nail art tutorial. Usually I would do these kind of tutorials using Acrylic on the nails - that's the nail technician in me with acrylic - but I'm fully aware that many of you may not have easy access to those products. So I've kept it basic just by using nail varnishes and nail tools (hey there bobby pins) that you are most likely to already have in your homes.

Nail-Beauty-Life: Blogging Schedule

Friday, 9 October 2015

I thought it was about time Nail-Beauty-Life had a proper planned out blogging schedule, in the past I posted every 2 days, then I took it down to every 3 days but I haven't really stuck to these when I've been down visiting family in London. 

Throwback Thursday

Thursday, 8 October 2015
Today's blog post is a bit of a look back on some old photos, hence the title of the post "Throwback Thursday". I've chosen 4 of my favourite photo's of myself when I was a lot younger than I am now, so I will go through each of them one at a time and if I can remember I will let you know exactly what I was doing in each picture.


NOTW: Nail Of The Week

Wednesday, 7 October 2015

This week's NOTW: Nail Of The Week is in the colour "Penguin Chic" and its by Tanya Burr.
I waited quite a while before purchasing any of the Tanya Burr collection, just for the fact that I decided to put myself on a "September Nail Varnish Ban" as I'm always buying nail varnishes and have way too many, so I decided I needed to start using some of the ones I already had first.
By the time the September ban had come to an end Tanya's new range had been released with all new packaging, which meant all the ones in the old packaging went on sale so I ended up buying 2 of the sets of nail varnishes at a bargain price of just £2.00 each instead of the usual £14.99! Bargain!

Everyday Products That I Use

Monday, 5 October 2015

Tea Tree Skin Clearing Moisturiser - This has been my go to moisturiser for nearly 3 years now, it took me ages to find the right moisturiser for me as I used to suffer pretty bad with acne when I was younger and the slightest thing on my face would tend to break me out. This moisturiser leaves my skin feeling soft & moisturised throughout the day and because it also has tea tree in it, it helps stops my skin from breaking out as bad as it used to!

Introducing The Pets

Sunday, 4 October 2015
I thought I would do a bit of a lifestyle post today, introducing you all to my 3 pets of the family, which are made up of 2 cats and 1 dog who go by the name of Gizmo, Milo and Lana. I haven't done many lifestyle posts just lately so thought why not do one as my next blog post whilst I was looking through all my photos that are piled up on my laptop.

Love/Hate: Facebook vs Twitter

Thursday, 1 October 2015

    

Now we all have that one thing that we have a love/hate relationship with and mine is between Facebook and Twitter. Before I started blogging I used to hate Twitter and very rarely used it and I was always over on Facebook, but since my blog started up it's kind of been a reversible role whereas I now much prefer Twitter to Facebook.

Carry on reading the rest of the blog post, to find out what I think about both of these popular social networking sites.
