Little updates

Oooh snoopy catch up time again.  I've been so busy lately with some changes at work that I've not been able to blog daily as I like to, but I always find time for a bit of instagram action (I'm fluttersparkle on Instagram).


1 - my new favourite Neom candle - I reviewed this one here
2 - My mini Sleek haul - I'll be reviewing these soon
3 - Escentual.com have 1/3 off French skincare, so I picked up lots of Laroche Posay goodies
4 - hanging out with shady ladies Jayne and Aisling


1 - gorgeous new palette from Smashbox - I have swatches coming up this week
2 - amazing studded Zara flats on Mary from Smashbox
3 - these are the glosses from the same collection 
4 - my new favourite night-time treat - Jurlique's antioxidant face oil


1 - my continued love for Barry M gellys and the Rose Quartz glitter 
2 - OPI when monkeys fly 
3 - Gigantic Seche Vite refill - this can fill 8 regular size bottles 
4 - hauling Essie's for £3.50 each - I blogged about this here


1 - I dyed my hair a pretty plum colour using this hair colour
2 - matching fingers and toes in pale nude - this is a Jack Wills polish which was discontinued :(
3 - Trying to dress for summer in the office 
4 - I liked my new Ribena hair so I dyed it again as soon as it started to fade


1 - I met my boyfriend's parents' cute new dog Barney 
2 - Posing in my Urban Outfitters sunnies 
3 - I entered a charity bake-off at work with this swirly pink butterfly cake 
4 - it even had a butterfly on the inside when it was sliced!  I'll be doing a post on how I made this cake soon.


1 - Slimming World friendly burger and fries 
2 - lovely new Slimming World cook books
3 - Baked some rainbow cookies for work
4 - and a slightly wonky but very glittery cake


1 - had to try one of the new smoothies from McDonalds
2 - made another cake with my new found swirly technique
3 - amazing teddy bear cake my brother's girlfriend had made for her Mum's birthday
4 - pretty new collar necklace I picked up in New Look


1 - cooked up a Slimming World friendly lasagna feast (minus the garlic bread)
2 - making the most of the sunshine and firing up our new barbecue
3 - the rose bush outside my front door just went crazy one day and was in full bloom when I got home
4 - enjoying the odd sunny evening in the garden after work

Other than that I've been going a little bit online shopping crazy.  Since we had a couple of days of summer I realised I needed some new clothes and shoes for hotter weather, so I've done a little bit of hauling and typical, since then it's been quite grey and rainy!  At least I'll be prepared when it gets warm again and I'll show you what I hauled soon.  

Have a lovely week xx



  1. Only recently started reading along, love the new hair colour on you. I've always wanted to go purple, it's the only colour I haven't been, but you look fantastic.

    And I'm looking forward to the reviews from your Sleek haul!

  6. I love your photos and those cakes look delicious!!

  7. I love the juxtaposition of Slimming World and cake in this post. It's postmodern with a twist of nostalgia.

  8. I love your new hair and wow, that necklace is so pretty.
    Those cakes had me drooling, I love the butterfly in the middle! x
