Do You Write Honest Reviews?


so ladies I need some advice,opinions etc anything with what I'm about to type.As bloggers we are sometimes sent free samples or even request free samples from some companies now I think that's perfectly fine cause I personally have accepted samples and even requested samples on many occasions, some being fantastic products and others not being so great, and sometimes I have reviewed them on this blog and  other times I have not.But what happens when you don't like something and you give it a more negative than positive review, whether its been sent to you by request or simply by the company offering and than the company lashes out at you? Do you think this is fair as bloggers should we keep our negative opinions to ourselves if the product has not been purchased with our money, or should we give it a 100percent positive review cause the product has been sent for free?I recently received some really negative feedback from a company after writing a review they didn't agree with, I was accused of 'backstabbing', recommending bad products,lying,having a blog with diminishing popularity,dishonest and the best one of all the company telling me 'Now they know why I'm not famous yet'! I coped that all in one email over one negative review.Ladies,followers I don't blog to be famous or to get rich,or to be popular I blog because I enjoy it,because its something I have a passion for, and having followers and ladies to talk to is a fantastic bonus which I also love.And every opinion I ever write on this blog is always going to be my OWN personal opinion I'm not about to lie to my readers or myself for some company that sent me something for free.So what do you think ladies should we keep our mouths shut or should we write what we honestly think of the product regardless of it being sent for free?

My Spring It,My honest Review

Hi Ladies
So Rachel over at MySpringit.com gave me the opportunity to review one of her My spring it's after I emailed her asking if I could have a sample .I'm going to be completely honest and let you ladies know what I think, just because it was free I'm not going to beat around the bush and give you a 'OMG ITS SO GREAT REVIEW' I'm going to be honest, cause face it honesty is the best policy!

So what is it you ask? Well basically its a spring with two little twisty handles on either side which allow you to control the spring to pull out all those hairs.Think of 'threading' but with a spring.I did try the spring it quite a few times and it definitely ripped out my hairs but with extreme pain,although I do like the concept of the spring it I think ill stick with waxing,spring it is more of a  slower process where as waxing is just wham bam thank you ma mam!Also another negative is the price at $15.99 USD that seems a little to much for something so simple,I also did my research and found exactly the same thing on eBay for $8.00 AUD including shipping but not for just one but for a total of 5 that's less than half price and your getting more for your money.
Overall the 'My Spring it' is great for getting rid of those hairs if you have a amazing tolerance for pain,and wish to pay a hell of a lot more for something you could find for cheaper on eBay with the same qualities.And I would like to thank Rachel for sending me the Spring it free of charge.

So ladies have any of you tried these springy hair removal things?
Would you be game enough to give one a go?

Liz Earle Mineral Sun Cream Perfect for those hot summer days!

Hello my pretty ladies

As you all know im totally in LOVE with Liz Earle's Skin Care range so I thought I would do a little review on there New Mineral Sun Cream with SPF20. We all know how extremelly white I am so a sunscreen is a must when I go outside because I turn completely red and my face ends up looking like a perfect game of connect the dots(freckles grrr) sunburnt skin is not something I look foward to so having a great sunscreen is just what I need!Specially in Australia where majority of the time the sun is beaming.


Liz Earle's Mineral Sun Cream is extremelly light and dosnt have that really thick feeling that most sunscreens have,and it deffinately does not have that awful scent that ive come across in the past.Its packed full of shea butter,potent natural antioxidants pomegranate,green tea and vitamin E all in a sun screen, so your getting protection from the sun plus your skins being moisturized is that a bonus or what!



The mineral sun cream is great for the whole family including the ladies with sensitive skin,cause the cream is so light it wont break you out,you dont even notice you have it on.


" Our new, reformulated mineral sun cream works by bouncing the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays away from the skin, offering immediate SPF20 protection in a new, easy to apply formula."
Liz Earle

So ladies is sunscreen apart of your daily routine?

As the Aussie's say "Dont forgot to SLIP,SLOP & SLAP"
"slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, and slap on a hat"

Oh and the Nude polish nail swatches are how my nails are now as you know ive snipped them all off! Hope your well ladies and dont forgot to enter my give away here

April Favorites


1.Cutex Nail Polish Remover,this stuff is great its really good cause it also has a nail whitening formula which works really well.

2.Mayballine Mineral Power concealer,its so hard matching a concealer and foundation to my white skin so double points for this,its covers all those nasty pimples that seem to pop up when you least expect it and great for under the eyes only a fiew dabs is needed cause a little goes a long way and the dow foot applicator comes in handy

3.Nail Tek Foundation II ive been using this for the last month as my base coat instead of the seche base coat and I must say I actually like this one better,cause it really smooths out the nail and gets rid of all those ridges perfect for a flawless nail polish application

4.CoverGirl LashBlast need I say more?I think this is just about everyones favorite mascara for me it creates those almost fake looking lashes which I love,I think this mascara is my all time favorite I hope they dont discontinue it cause honestly I think this is the best product ive seen Cover Girl ever produce.

5.MOR Cosmetics hand cream,Im not really much for handcreams but since its been getting colder in Australia my hands and skin seem to be becoming much more drier so this hand cream comes in handy I specialy love the scent it leaves even after washing my hands they still smell pretty.

6.LizEarle face moisturizer is fantastic for normal/combination skin ive been really enjoying this stuff my skin is so fussy when it comes to cream one day its oily the next dry as anything but using this moisturizer has really helped it get over its little hissy fit

7.Senna line and smudge brush is great for eyeliner on the top and bottom its a soft brush and not to big so its really easy to control im shocking when it comes to liner but with this brush its really helped

8.MAC BlackTrack Fluid line this stuff is AMAZING super black and creamy I actually use this on my waterline with the Senna brush its really good if you like dark heavy eyeliner its even great for the top lid liner but im more of bottom eyeliner girl

9.Carmex oh Carmex where would I be without you,you have saved my lips from burning chapped lip pain a billion times I love this stuff its great for using before you put on lipstick as a kind of primer but its even better for when you just think your about to get chapped lips,whack some of this on and ull be fine in a fiew hours seriously it works wonders great for winter which is coming up

10.MAC Lipsticks in Cute-ster its a mix between a peachy/pink nude and its a lustre so it gives off that glossy affect,Viva Glam GAGA need I say more the perfect pink and Hue the perfect everyday colour for alot of skin tones

11.1000 Eyelash and Eyebrow Dye,I have blonde lashes actually there like like see through you cant even see them so I look like a freak without mascara but I recently purchased this stuff and now I have a pretty black lashes!Great for days when you feel like putting no makeup on.
