label.m Protein Spray

label.m Protein Spray

So, I have to admit my poor hair has been neglected over the past year or so. It went through the wars of dying/stripping/more dying, so I just left it and grew out all of the (red at the time) dye.

It was all well and good growing out the colour, but the quality, softness and shine had just disappeared, my hair was completely ruined.

The ends of my hair had gotten so bad they literally looked like they had been singed in a fire, so i thought enough was enough, the neglect couldn't go on much longer. I booked a wash, cut, blow-dry and deep treatment at Toni & Guy (it was amazing).

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag!

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag!

Hi everyone! So as you all know, I have been pretty useless when it's come to blogging recently! So thought why not start them off again with a good ol' tag!

Anyway, lets get back to business! Thank you Kate from beautiboe for the tag on this!

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do?
I moisturise my face every day without a fail, but I have to say the rest of my body is very neglected when it comes to moisturising. I have very dry legs and arms, but I just never remember to moisturise them, it is pretty bad :(

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly?
I wash my make-up brushes, but probably not as often as I should! I would say I do them once a month, but for me it is just finding the time to wash them and to give them enough time to dry before I need to use them again.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
I absolutely hate chipped nail polish! I think I may have OCD when it comes to my nails. If my nail polish chips I have to take it all off and re-apply it as soon as I possibly can! I carry around a Nails Inc Express Nail Polish Remover Pot in my handbag so if my nails chip too bad I can take the whole lot off!

4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it?
It depends on what it is! The main thing I leave until the very last minute to replace is my eyebrow pencil! I will literally use it until I cannot sharpen it anymore (which is about 3 weeks worth!).

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
I have a very bad habit of picking my split ends! I can sit there for hours picking them without even knowing I am doing it!

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
Polishing, I am a clean freak (most of the time), but I find it literally impossible to get the polish and a duster out. I have so many little bits and pieces all over my shelves/sides it takes me forever to move them all!

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute?
No, definitely not! I spend at least 1.5 to 2 hours getting ready if I am going out somewhere nice, if it is just for work or to the shops I spend about 30-40mins :-p

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
I really wish I could, each pay day I say exactly the same thing... "No spending this month Laura, save some money and next month you will not regret it"... this never happens!

9. How organized is your make-up and nail polish collections?
My nail polish collection is probably the most organized collection I have! I simply cannot stand my nail polishes lying around and messy.. My make up on the other hand is another story, I have it all scattered in numerous make up bags all over the place and can never find anything when I need it! (except my main make up which is kept in my main make up bag!)

Thank you for reading my post! Please let me know if you have any recommendations for my next one!


I'm Sorry!! :(

I'm Sorry!! :(

Hi all, I can only apologize that it has been far too long since I last posted a blog. There are no excuses but I thought I should at least try ;-)...

Firstly, I have recently moved into my new home with my boyfriend (a few months ago) and in the same week started a new job! So as you can imagine this has been extremely stressful and I have not really had much time to sit back and relax!

Would you rather? ♥

Would you rather?

Hi everyone, so today's blog is going to be slightly different to usual! Thank you to Kate @ beautiboe for the tag on this! Please click here to view hers, it is very interesting ;).

Lets go!

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
Lose all my palettes and eyeshadows, the others are my daily essentials!

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Aahhhh thats a tough one! Probably never be able to cut my hair again? I just would never straighten/curl it again and try and keep it as healthy as possible!

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Pink cheek, I can't quite pull off the coral cheek look :(

4.) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Clothes! If I bought £1000 worth of make up I would never use it all so it would seem like a waste!

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Hhhmmm.. lipstick as eyeliner!

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
We do not have Sephora here in the UK so it would have to be MAC, you can't beat it ;)

7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
One eye shadow colour definitely! I love changing my lip colour based on my mood, it completes a look!

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Summer clothes in the winter, I would cheat and just wear lots to make sure I was warm!

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright nails, they're my favourite whatever the weather!

10.) Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
Favourite lip product, I look so tired when I do not have eye mascara on!

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Pony tail!

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never wear lipgloss! I absolutely love nail polish so it would take a lot to give it up.

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
Sharpie them on! Oh my goodness I would look terrible without eyebrows!

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
VERY tough one! But it would have to be live without nail polish, I could hide my hands in my pockets so no one would have to see my finger nails! Every one has to see my face!

There you have it! The answers to the tag. I choose to tag:
Rachel @ tailsbydaisy
Charlotte @ charlotterees
Jacqueline @ peep-my-life

If anyone else who wishes to take part please do! :)
Be sure to mention I tagged you/you found it on my blog! I am looking forward to seeing your answers!

Thank you for reading my post! Please let me know if you have any recommendations for my next one!

Big Pony Collection ♥

Ralph Lauren Big Pony Woman's Collection - Pink Eau de Toilette

Good Morning everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

As you may or may not know I have just got myself a new job in the lovely Milton Keynes, England, which is amazing because it is very close to where my new home is going to be in Bedford, England.

Yesterday, to my surprise my boyfriend Tim gave me this lovely gift to congratulate me on my new job, it was the Ralph Lauren Big Pony Woman's Collection - Pink perfume. I was so surprised and pleased, what a lovely thing for him to do ♥

Starbucks ♥

Mocha Coconut Frappuccino

Hi all, I can only apologize that it has been so long since I last made a post! I am in the middle of going through a house move and got a new job (eeeee so exciting, but also extremely stressful!).

Today's post is going to be on a drink that is back-by-popular-demand - the Mocha Coconut Frappuccino. All I can say about this is WOW!, it was absolutely lovely and is definitely my new favourite from Starbucks.

This frappuccino is very hard to describe. It is extremely refreshing without being too sweet, yet it is very smooth and creamy. The best way to describe it is like a mocha combined with a coconut ice cream!

Wheyhey! That is tasty ♥

Wheyhey Protein Ice Cream

Happy Saturday every body! I hope you all have lovely plans for the weekend and this bank holiday Monday.

So today I thought I would blog about something slightly different to usual. As you may or may not know I am extremely into health and fitness, and love to eat healthy 99.9% of the time ;-) Not too long ago I came across this Wheyhey protein ice cream, I couldn't wait to try this as I find it very difficult to find desserts that actually taste nice that fit my daily calorie intake.

Wheyhey is an all natural, no sugar, high protein ice cream that only contains natural ingredients, for this reason I was very intrigued to try it, so purchased the Strawberry and Chocolate flavour.

I have to say this is the best healthy dessert I have ever had. Both tasted just like normal ice cream and it definitely felt as though I had just eaten something very bad for me & full of sugar (which is always good ;))

MUA Matte Lipstick Lilac Belle

MUA Matte Lipstick Lilac Belle

Good evening everyone! Today's post is going to be on another MUA product, as you can probably tell I am falling more and more in love with this brand as time goes on.

This post is going to be on the MUA Matte Lipstick in Lilac Belle (as worn in the photo above). I have seen this shade a lot on other blogs and online and thought it looked stunning. I have to admit I looked high and low for this and eventually found it (the last one!) in Milton Keynes after a couple of weeks of darting into every Superdrug store I passed.

Lovely little gift! Poised In Turquoise (Nicole by OPI)

Nicole by OPI Poised In Turquoise

Good evening everyone! I can only apologise that I have not done a new post in a few days, I have been extremely busy and not had much time to myself, but I promise I will not leave it this long again!

I went shopping with my boyfriend Tim and his mum and dad at the weekend in the lovely town of Milton Keynes. To my surprise, Tim's mum had bought me a present from Superdrug, this being the Nicole by OPI - Poised In Turquoise.

I can't believe that Superdrug sell Nicole by OPI and I didn't even know, I would have definitely been making some purchases earlier if I had known!

Whilst in the bottle it is a beautiful Turquoise metallic colour with waves of a blue-green shimmer. I have never used Nicole by OPI before, so I was very intrigued and excited to use this.

Twitter ♥

Good Morning all! I hope the weather is as beautiful there as it is here on this rare occasion in England!

I have a favour to ask you all! I have probably neglected my beautysaveuk twitter account a little bit & have not really advertised it.
I am starting to use it a lot more not so was wondering if all of my wonderful followers could follow me.. I will follow back of course :)!

Please click the image below!

Thank you all so much :) x

If you moust you moust!

OPI If You Moust You Moust

Good evening everyone! It has been a while since I have done a nail post, so I thought it was about time I did another. Today's post is going to be on one of my favourite OPI colours ever - If You Moust You Moust. I absolutely love everything about this nail lacquer.

I got this shade a while ago in the Vintage Minnie Mouse collection (one of the best OPI collections to date!).

MUA Love Part 2

MUA Shopping Spree

Good evening everyone! Following on from my previous post about my little shopping spree on the MUA website where I purchased all of the below for an amazing £18.95 (including delivery), here is my second post reviewing two more of the items!

Please click here to see my MUA Love Part 1 post

For my second post I am going to review the MUA Mosaic Blusher (English Rose) and MUA Power Pout (Irreplaceable). I am wearing both of these products in the photo below.

MUA Love Part 1

MUA Shopping Spree

Good evening everyone! It is finally Friday & time for the weekend! I recently went on a little shopping spree on the MUA website and got all of the below for an amazing £18.95 (including delivery)! I figured it would be too much to do one blog for all 8 products, so thought it would be a good idea to do make up styles with two or three of the items and then review them!

For my first post I am going to review the MUA Mosaic Bronzer (Sunkissed Glow) and MUA Power Pout (Crazy in Love). I am wearing both of these products in the photo below.

April Favourites!

April Favourites

Good morning everyone! I hope you have all had a lovely bank holiday weekend!
I am sorry it has been a few days since my last post, but I have had a very busy weekend and have not had a chance to do my April Favourites yet!

I have had a lot of products I have loved throughout April but the list could go on forever, so I have managed to narrow them down to my top 5 (in no particular order).

I've Got Starbucks On A Cloudy Day

Nonfat Caramel Macchiato

Good evening all!

As you can guess from the title today has not been very nice here in England, it has been very cloudy, dark and wet which was a bit of a shock to the system as I was just getting used to the lovely spring weather!

The office felt a bit gloomy because of the horrible weather, so myself and a colleague thought what better than a lovely Starbucks to cheer ourselves up!

With the weather not being very nice I definitely wanted something hot! As you know from my last post, I am trying to stick with healthy eating so, I decided to go for a Nonfat Caramel Macchiato (I had never had this before and was very intrigued!)

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm Review ♥

Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm
Heftiest Hibiscus

Good evening all! I would like to apologise for my lack of blogging over the past couple of days! I have been very busy at work, so have not had much time for myself! :(

After my "What's In My Make Up Bag" post I have had quite a few requests to review the Clinique Chubby stick (Shade Heftiest Hibiscus).

NEW: What's In My Make Up Bag, April

What's In My Make Up Bag

Good Morning everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far!

Today I am going to be doing a post on "What's In My Make Up Bag" as I have had quite a few requests for this and thought it is a fab idea!

I did a post on this yesterday, however I figured it was a bit too long for you all to read when giving a description about every product!
If you would like me to do a separate post on any of the items below, please let me know :)!

My current make up bag is one I purchased in a set from QVC about 2 years ago - Yes, I have had this a long time! I am very pleased with how long it has lasted me, but it has gone through the washing machine about 3 times. Unfortunately, I am unable to find this anywhere online to purchase (except for eBay), so think it must have been a special for the set I bought.

LUSH Love ♥

Snow Fairy shower gel

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely day!

So today I am going to be doing a post on a product that can only be purchased around Christmas time & this is Lush Snow Fairy shower gel. Apologies for posting this now, seeing as you cannot go out and purchase it from LUSH themselves, but I cannot contain myself any longer!.

Every Christmas I stock up on this to make sure I have enough to get me through the year, as I absolutely love the stuff!

I adore the sweet smell of this & the smell lingers around for a good few hours and for this reason, it may not be good for those of you that find sweet smelling things sickly.

Wednesday, 23 April 2014


Good evening all!

I hope you have all had a lovely day!

I just wanted to ask you all a quick favour..

As you know I am very new to blogging (thank you all so much for your support ♥) & I have just made myself a Bloglovin' account.

Please could you click here and follow me on there :)?

If you guys have a Bloglovin' account and would like me to follow you on there also, please comment below with the link and I will be sure to do it :)

A quick question for you all!

Good morning all!

I am having a bit of a dilemma and would love to know your opinions and thoughts.

Following on from my 'Hairly Disappointed' post, it got me thinking & I thought this would be the perfect place to try and get some answers to an ongoing query I have.

I have been told by numerous amounts of people that I should not wash my hair every day, and should only do it 3-4 times a week.

Hairly Dissapointed :(!

Batiste - Dry Shampoo
Coconut & Exotic Tropical

So everyone has those days when they wake up and their hair is not feeling as nourished as it could be, you are in a rush and do not have time to re-wash it (even though it was only done the night before).. In cases like these I turn to the good old fashioned method of baby powder! This can get a bit messy - especially when I am already in my work clothes and drop baby powder all over myself!

I was in Asda I decided to buy some Batiste Dry Shampoo (Coconut & Exotic Tropical), as I have heard nothing but good things about this stuff and I know that a lot of people use it.

It kills me to say that I am really disappointed with this purchase! :( I really, really wanted this product to work, but it just didn't.

Shadow on your eyes ♥

Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow
500 - Posh Peacock
172 - Audacious Amethyst

Ok, so first things first.. Please ignore the untidy, used state of the eyeshadows in the photo's! I got them last week and have been using them both since!
I am a little upset with myself for not taking photos before I started using them, but they were so nice I couldn't resist!

Left; Posh Peacock Right; Audacious Amethyst

I saw these in Superdrug for £4.49 each but decided to do browsing online first. I buy a lot of my beauty products from and found them on there for a FANTASTIC £1.40 each (click here to view them on fragrance direct)

Sunday, 20 April 2014

Not bad for a freebie! Thank you Superdrug ♥

Rimmel 60 Seconds
050 - Fifty Shades of Pink

I tragically ran out of my foundation (blog with this in to follow!) and had to rush over to Superdrug to go pick up some more! They had an offer on Rimmel products "Buy one get one half price", I have to admit I was a little disappointed as their offer is usually buy 2 get 1 free.

I was soon cheered up when I saw that to celebrate 50 years of Superdrug (yay Happy Birthday!)I would receive a free Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish, so I went for the shade 050 - Fifty Shades of Pink.

Another beautiful day, time for another Starbucks!

Light Caramel Frappucino

I think I may be getting slightly addicted to Starbucks again!
It was another warm day here in England, and with Starbucks a 5 minute walk from my office, we decided to go!

I wanted to go for something different and because of the nice weather, I decided to go for a Medium light Caramel Frappucino.
It was a blend of coffee, sweet caramel and ice, with a generous topping of caramel sauce.

Sunday, 13 April 2014

Beautiful day for a Starbucks!

Skinny Cappuccino

So, I was on my lunch break on Thursday and decided to go to Starbucks with a colleague because it was far too nice to stay in the office!

I have a slight addiction to Starbucks Cappuccino! Even though it was a sunny day I had to get one! I usually get it normal, but with Summer right around the corner (yaaay!) I decided to go for a 'skinny' one this time.
I have to say it was surprisingly different to a normal cappuccino. It was delicious, it tasted a lot more creamy and a lot less bitter, I will definitely continue getting it in the future!

My colleague got a Strawberry Smoothie which looked lovely! It was the perfect drink for the type of weather we were having (which is very unusual for April in England).

Nails Inc St James Square

Nails Inc
St James Square

I have had this shade for a while now, but I thought it deserved it's own blog post because it is so nice and one of my absolute favourite Nails Inc shades.

I love Nails Inc polishes because I find the application so easy, they last ages, do not become thick in texture and last a good amount of time without chipping.

Friday, 4 April 2014



I was on a payday celebration trip to Milton Keynes and went into Debenhams and I came across this stunning Chanel lip gloss, it stood out straight away and I had to purchase it. The shade is 175 Savage Grace

I absolutely love everything about this lip gloss, the colour, the way it lasts, the texture! It is a very bright fuchsia based colour. This is perfect for those of you that want to finish a look with WOW! lips.
