Long time no type!

Hey guys, i can't actually believe how long i havent been using this blog! pretty unreal if you ask me, so i've decided to wipe away the cobwebs and start a-new!
How have you guys been? I know i haven't many followers, but you all do count! I'll start to get into a habit into posting regularly as any blogger should ;D
I haven't much idea what i'll blog about, but it'll be a variety of things, and if you recommend anything you want to be seen i'll try my best to get it up!

So there's this one blog in which I do love reading again and again. I'll be utterly suprised if you don't follow her ~ Michelle @ Daisybutter. Even when my blog had seemed to come upon a standstill I kept on reading her posts when published!

Apologies for the complete randomness of this blog, but you shall be seeing more soon! :)

Montagne Jeunesse Chocolate Masque.

Hello my lovelies ^.^
Right, so tonight I used one of my absolute favourite face masks, It's from the Montagne Jeunesse range. It's called Chocolate Masque. This face mask is absolutely devine! Looks just like melted chocolate and even smells of it too! Which of course is also a bonus haha. ;)

~Flash ~ No flash, sorry for the blurryness xD
(and apologies for my awful carpet ^.^)

There is many, many different varieties from this brand, from peeling masks, to cream ones like this. My favourites are; chocolate, hot sauna (heats up when on your skin), and vanilla fudge. You can sometimes buy a selection of these masks in a bundle pack, but i have only seen them in limited places.

Norally the price range for one of these packets vary from £0.79, to £1.00 but that depends on where you buy them. I commenly find these packs in shops like Boots, Superdrug, or Savers. Even places like ASDA too :D.

~ When on my skin this masks smells so good that it puts me in a much better mood, and when washed off my skin feels super hydrated an soft!
I totally recommend :D
Have any of you guys got a favourite mask to recommend? x
Ahh sorry guys for being such a stranger lately!
I've been mega busy with my A-levels etc.. but i'm promising to blog alot more :D

How's life for everyone? Anything interesting happened lately? :)

More blogs are on their way so keep an eye out xx

Boots Natural Collection nail varnish ~ Review

So, i decided that I'll do a review on recently purchased nail varnishes. They are from the Boots range of Natural Collection, I do appreciate the fact that this brand isn't as loved as Barry M, or Rimmel, but i do think these nails varnishes are defiantly worth buying! I had a tough choice of which colours to buy at the time, since there are so many pretty colours and shades.
Currently within the Natural collections complete range of cosmetics Boots has an offer for 3 items for £5, which to me, is a very good bargain indeed! I used this offer to buy the following 3 nail varnishes which I am reviewing. Separately each of these nail varnishes cost only £1.99, so with the special offer or not, it is still a great buy!

The three following nail varnishes are frosted pastel shades, and aren't as bold as what they look like in the bottles.

~Apologies for the picture quality, these images were taken on my iPhone since my digital camera has pretty much died on me :) I will try to change the images to better ones asap! Alongside some swatches on my own nails for a better view out the bottle.
This nail varnish from the Natural Collections range is called Sugar mouse (£1.99). I find that this is such an adorable colour to have on your nails that will simply go with any outfit. When painted on nails, its a really pretty white and baby pink shimmery colour, with a frosty effect.

This nail varnish is called Topaz (£1.99) I'm afraid the image of this one isn't as clear as what the nail varnish looks like. The colour is more blue, and not so turquoise, when painted on your nails it makes them appear a shimmery icy light blue, this blue though isn't crazy bold, i would say that it is a lot calmer than it looks in the bottle.

I have to admit that this my favourite Natural Collection colour at the moment, this one is called Champagne (£1.99). I absolutely adore this colour! I'd say that it suits any skin colour, and is also a discrete colour which is perfect for me considering i can then wear it for work ;D I totally recommend anyone buying this shade, it's very very worth it!
Please let me know if there is any nail varnishes from this range you have bought and would recommend ^.^ x

If by that you mean with bubble gum or with the bubble liquid you can buy in little pots, then yes i can ^.^

Haha no, i actually can't. I seem to have a much higher chance of somehow hurting myself in the process, than actually doing a cart wheel.

Can you touch your toes?
Unfortunatly not with my legs straight, but if i'm sitting the way i am now, then yep, easy peasy :3

Nonono.. i'd be the worst doctor around! I like the idea of helping people, and saving lives. But i can barely be fine when getting an injection! aha

I'd never actually thought about becoming one ever... I've done firefighting training before, which was immensly fun, but i dont think i'd cope well in situations that firefighters face.

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out.

I thought since this my first post, I'll write about the woman that inspired me to name my blog as one of her songs. I absolutely love Florence Welch, otherwise known as Florence, from Florence and the Machine, her songs are just simply beautiful especially with her voice complimenting the lyrics. Cosmic Love is one of my favourite songs sung by her, the lyrics are just amazing to listen too.
Florence is also known at the moment for singing 'You got the love' which was originally sung by Candi Staton. She also recently performed that song on the BRIT awards featuring Dizzee Rascal. Bizarrely I found that when they both performed together they sounded really good considering that their music styles are not the same.
