In Love With Fashion.

..And they lived Happily Ever After.

Afternoon all, I will keep this very short & sweet. Just want to Congratulate the beautiful couple. William & Kate are such a stunning couple. Must admit, I cried through it all, happy tears of course. As we all know i'm in LOVE with anything to do with Fairytales, Weddings & Love itself hehe

I thought it was hilarious & so cute when they were both on the balcony and he asked 'Shall we? Kiss?' It really made me laugh. They are so perfect for each other.

I know a lot of people are having massive street parties, and going out tonight, I decided to bake cupcakes for my Family, Friends & Neighbours.

 
Just to end this post. I wish the happy couple lots of luck & happiness & just want to end with this quote..
"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, Love gives us a fairytale." - TheSingleWoman

Hope you have a lovely day :)

Keeping Up With the Kardashian's.

Can you believe this family are coming back with the SIXTH series of 'Keeping up wth the Kardashians'!?
I'm very excited to see what goes on, although nothing can really top the first few series. I think a lot of it is pre-planned now which kinda sucks. The first few series were so 'normal'

I absolutely LOVE the photoshoot for this series, especially the one with the Gorgeous Tigers. Stunning!
The show Premiere's in June :) My summer is sorted hehe.



Will you be tuning into the new series?

Carry on working out everyday, get a Summer Body hehe I'm loving Paul McKenna's diet. So easy to do! I've been treadmilling everyday, feeling so fit. Love it!
Keep my nails sparkly with Nu Bar nail polishes. I've already ordered the Blue & the Purple (The last ones on the Right hand side) They are so soo pretty!
Take a trip to the Seaside, spend a few days away from home, worries, stresses. I'd love to live on the coast. Gorgeous :)

The Globe Theatre. I LOVE Shakespeare (Geek!) I've been here before, But I so want to visit again. The place is just something else :)

Got that Friday Feelin'.. *EOTD*

Happy Good Friday Everyone :)  I love wearing bright eyeshadows when the Sun's out, minimal eyeliner, lots of colour!! Here's what i'm rockin' today!


For this look, I used;
The last Blue, on the top right. Beauty UK palette.

Urban Decay Palette Fishnet, Honey & Peace x (I've had it a little while lol as you can tell)

It is so quick & easy to do:
  1. I started off with Fishnet, then blended in Peace toward the outer eye.
  2. I then used a small eyeshadow brush and added a little 'Honey' to the inner corners of the eye.
  3. To finish off I used the Blue from my Beauty UK palette to line the bottom of my eye. Coated the lashes with a little mascara and lightly lined the top eye liner with a little Black eyeliner. Voila! ;)

Enjoy the bank holiday lovelies.
Lotsa love Leesh of UnLeeshd x x x

Coral Season. Mini-Post.

Hello lovelies :) How lovely has the weather been recently? I'm loving it, the only downside to this weather is, everytime the Sun comes out, I feel the need to go shopping! Thought i'd write up a little post on what I bought yesterday!

Mad About Mango & Tropical Temptation.

If there is one nail colour i've always been a bit iffy about, it's Coral. I'd never known what the big deal was until.. Miss Beauty Fulfilled came round to mine recently with a massive range of nail polishes, some of them being CORAL!

She painted my nails in Revlon's 'Tropical Temptation' and do you know what?.. I LOVED it!! I ended up buying my own bottle yesterday.
As well as Tropical Temptation. I'd heard a lot about Revlon's scented nail polishes so I bought a similar shade in this range 'Mad About Mango'

Revlon Scented Polish range.
I love this shade! Its so summery :) and my god, It smells amazing lol. If you haven't tried these, you definitely should! I can't stop smelling the scent! It lasts about a day, and bare in mind I have major OCD and wash my hands every 2mins lol It still lasted all day. I love it!

I hope you liked today's mini-post. Enjoy the rest of your week!

That's proper LUSH!

Oh, hello you guys! :) I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.
I really really get excited when I go into Lush, I'm a BIG fan of scented soaps, but the handmade stuff that won't irritate my skin. I'm a bit funny about what I use on my skin, only because its super sensitive.
SO, I took a lil trip to LUSH yesterday to get my absolute favourite soap in the world 'Honey, I washed the Kids'
Honey, I washed the Kids.
If you haven't tried this then OH MY GOODNESS! Get your hands on it as soon as lol The Honey & Toffee scent is soo nice. The scent stays on your body for ages, it really is 'Lush.' I use it on my face & body. It's perfect :)
Its around £3.10 for 100g, it lasts too. So worth every penny!


The honey soap is literally the only thing I ever purchased from Lush, I really fancied trying something different so I bought a gorgeous Sugar scrub 'Sugar Babe' & a Mud scrub 'Glorious Mud'

 This Sugar Scrub is actually really good. You literally wet it, take the wet scrub and rub it into your skin. It's really good for blood circulation & taking all your dead skin off. It feels really rough (Like a scrub should) but because it has Coconut Oil in, it leaves the skin feeling so soo soft.
The photo isn't the original size. I used it twice already lol They cost £2.65 each, The only downside is they don't last ages so its best to a buy a few as oppose to just the one. Also, you'll find that it will get really soft so it's worth storing it in a little pot.


 This 'Glorious Mud' is great. You wet a little bit of it and it fizzes into a soft paste, the scrub works wonders on the skin. You rub it into your skin, leave it for around 5mins, then wash it off. This cost me £3.47, Which is a bargain considering how lovely & clean & soft your skin feels afterwards.

I'm so glad I tried new products by Lush. I'd love to know what your favourites are (although, i'm not a fan of bath fizzers) any other recommendations would be great!
I'm totally in love with these three products and will definitely be buying them again & again!

Random Weekend.

Don't you love it when things happen unexpectedly? As oppose to things being planned to every last detail?
Saturday & Sunday were so great, I thought i'd write up a little post about it to tell you guys what I got upto.

Saturday. I started off taking my sister out for a pamper sesh & lunch date :)

We went for a fabulous Fish Pedicure. I'd heard so much about these that I really wanted to try it out. It cost me £10 for 15mins which I thought was a great price :)


At first it felt so weird, I was literally holding my face in my hand because the sensation was.. lets say 'different' lol
But you eventually get used to the tickly, tingly 'pins & needles' type feeling and it starts feeling really nice :)
I think everyone should try this treatment. Me & my sister had such a laugh and left with lovely soft feet.
After a fab lunch date with my sis, we walked around in the sunshine for a while and kept walking past Tattoo shops. (hmmm...!) yes, that's exactly what was going through my mind. I really fancied getting something done. I wanted to get my Tragus done but because it had been a while since i'd got a piercing, I decided on getting the top of my ear done for now, then the Tragus in a few weeks time :)

New Piercing.
If that wasn't enough for one day, I then invited my beautiful good friend Kaushal round for a chill out in the garden. You all might know her as Miss BEAUTY FULFILLED :)
We were so bored, we came to the realisation that after four years of friendship we had NEVER been on a date before hehe. So, that's exactly what we did.
We dressed up & visited a beautiful Thai restaurant.

Miss UnLeeshd & Miss Beauty Fulfilled.
It was lovely to get out & spend time to catch up.
To end the weekend perfectly, we had a gorgeous family BBQ on the Sunday, filled with laughter, sunshine, food & my favo Strawberry & Lime Kopparberg hehe.
I love the sunny weather :)

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend too.

Pantene New Colour & Protect Range *Review*

*I have not been paid to write any of the reviews on my blog. Everything written is my own opinion.*

I dyed my hair over a week ago. I was so bored with my natural hair colour (brown) & decided to dye it jet black. I needed a new Colour protecting shampoo so decided to buy the New Pantene Colour protecting Shampoo & Conditioner.


You can buy the 'Smooth' range or 'Volume' I tend to like straightened hair so I decided to buy the Smooth range.
The Smooth range is supposed to..
'align and smooth the texture of coloured hair for an extra shiny frizz-free finish. It's the first step to gorgeous, healthy looking hair that's radiantly colourful and silky soft.'

My Verdict:
After a week or so of using it, I'm happy with the way it has lived upto it's job. I know I shouldn't.. but I am guilty of washing my hair once a day. I also tend to dye my hair 3-4 times a year (trying to cut down)
My normal shampoo usually washes out my hair dye in it's first week & begins to start looking dry. But I found that this Shampoo is so delicate that it washes the hair and leaves the colour looking as dark as it did on the day I dyed it.
The conditioner leaves the hair so smooth & shiny as you can tell in the photos provided.
The only downside is the conditioner makes your hair feel greasy if you use it everyday. Just use the conditioner a few times a week as oppose to everyday. The shampoo itself leaves the hair silky & smooth.
Natural hair colour.

Newly dyed hair.

If you want to know more about this Range then click on the link provided http://www.pantene.co.uk/

 For now though, I'm gonna go SWISH my hair back n forth ;)
Hope you liked this review.

Cupcake Crazy?

HELLO!! :)
I'm in such a fab mood today, a lot of people know that I'm very much into the colder seasons and don't tend to enjoy the heat too much.
Lord knows what's happened THIS year. I'm feeling it lol x

So, I mentioned in my last post about baking Birthday Cupcakes for my Mum..

Here they are..


If you want to make them too, here's how you do it..

You will need..
5oz Self Raising flour
5oz Butter
5oz Sugar
2 eggs
Milk
Vanilla Essence

Butter cream frosting
175g Icing Sugar
75g Butter
Food colouring/decorations of your choice
Vanilla Essence

Depending on how big/small the Muffin cases are this should make about 5-8 cupcakes. If you want to make more or less, just change the measurements a little. As long as you use the same amount of Flour, Sugar & Butter its all good ;)

What to do..

Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl (do this for about 3-5 mins) and then add the vanilla essence.

Add the eggs, one at a time, adding a spoonful of flour (Prevents mixture from curdling.. check me out :P)

Fold in the rest of the flour & add milk, I use quite a bit of milk, the batter is a whole lot smoother.

Scoop the batter into the muffin cases and put them into a Pre-heated oven for 15 mins on Gas Mark 4. They may need an additional 5 mins depending on how big they are.
I gave these an extra 5mins to golden as they were cooked but looked a little too light on the top.
While they are cooling, You can start on the Frosting :)

It's as easy as melting the butter and mixing the butter, icing, more vanilla essence and food colouring together. Beat it until it all comes together.

The frosting :)
 Oh & F.Y.I. I used these products to colour & decorate the cakes...

You can buy brilliant colourings from your local Bakery. I also ordered the edible beads, black muffin cases & the glitter from cakes cookies and crafts shop.
Once decorated, you'll end up with fabulous colourful, pretty cupcakes..


Have a great weekend lovelies.

Thank You Miss Adrienne Adores :)

Bonjourrr! How amazingly sunny is it today? Its days like today I wish I was on the coast somewhere reading a fab book preferably by Nicholas Sparks. (Yes, a book. I love being a geek!)
I woke up this morning feeling a bit.. 'meh' & 'bleurgh' Can't even explain it but hopefully you get what I mean lol.. I think it's the lack of not having my Blackberry, Laptop or a life ha.. I then watched Dear John, which made me feel a gazillion times worse lol *bad idea*!
Yeah so anyway, I was feeling sorry for myself until I got a knock at the door.
I ordered some edible glitter & colourful beads earlier this week to bake birthday cupcakes for my mummy (If they look pretty enough, i'll be doing a post on em). About ten minutes later, the postman arrived and I recieved this..

I love Leopard print =D x

In the gorgeous Leopard print packet was..


I love just how pretty the wrapping was, I felt like an excited child in a sweet shop lol


The lipstick is 'Kraft' which is a creamy light brown, which is a stunning shade on my skin tone.


So, Thank you lots Adrienne. I love it :) Cheered me up loads lol x

Midnight Blues.. *EOTD*

Hey guys! I hope you're well.
So, I took a little trip to Superdrug yesterday to pick up some Jet Black hair dye & Pantene's New Colour Protecting range (Which I will be doing a review on in a week or so's time)

Anyways, I came across two fabulous deals. My favo moisturising cream 'Astral' *HALF PRICE* (I purchased FOUR tubs *Blush* I know, I know but atleast my skin will always be super smooth hehe) and the second was this gorgeous Eyeshadow Palette. It was £3 off so I got it for £6.

 Its from the FAMOUS range by Sue Moxley.

This photo doesn't do the palette any favours, but the colours are so much richer & darker than this. It contains a gorgeous Grey/Silver (I know, my camera makes it look like a white eyeshadow.) It most definitely is a fab silver.
You then have a lovely creamy blue shade which on its own would look stunning.
The third Blue is actually a dark navy shade (Which looks like a light blue in the photo)
I've always been after a Blue, smokey eye palette. A lot of people know just how much I love the smokey eye look but using different colours instead of using your standard Grey & Black.

Anyway, I gave this a go. This is how it went..


Primed eye using Stilife by MAC.

I worked the Silver upto the Eyebrow.
Then, the lighter Blue and blended it from the middle of the eye outwards.

Next, I used the Navy on the outer eye & Blended really well.

Use a dark eyeliner to line the top and bottom of your eyes.
My Verdict: I don't think you can really complain for £6. I really like the shades, especially the lighter blue. I can definitely say that I will be wearing this look out a lot. (Smokey Eye obsession hehe) The only downside is you have to go over the eyeshadow a few times to get the full effect. For £2 an eyeshadow though, I really don't mind :)

Have you tried any products from the FAMOUS range by Sue Moxley?

Kid's Choice Awards.. Kardashian Style.

First & foremost I want to say Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely Mummy's out there, I hope you're having a fab day!

Last night was the Kid's Choice Awards. I saw this photo earlier and I just had to write up a little post about it. Kylie, Kim, Kendall & Kourtney looked stunning as per usual. 
I'm dedicating this post to Kourt's dress though.
I love the Colour & the Style. The fit is just perfect, I seem to love a lot of the clothes I see her wear on "Kourtney & Kim take NYC"
I hope I can find a dress very similar to this to wear this Summer :)


                                                   
What dress do you prefer? Also, look out for my next Beauty Post as I will be going for the Kardashian look. Eek! =D
