Nivea #DareToKiss - Lip Prep and Giveaway

So this New Years Eve, NIVEA are attempting to break a record with the longest kissing chain on Twitter. To get involved we thought you can't really prepare to pucker up on New Year without a little preparation and therefore to get yourselves ready we thought we'd share our lip prep tips.

First off, we do the following:

  1. The night before a big night out, we use an old tooth brush to get rid of any excess skin (only use gently mind!).

  2. We then apply a generous amount of Nivea's Lip butters. Nivea lip butters come in 3 variations - Raspberry Rose, Caramel Cream and Original. I'm definitely a Caramel Cream girl. NIVEA Lip Butter helps ensure lips are moisturised to the max and ready for kissing! The lip butters are packed with Almond Oil and Shea Butter to leave you lips nourishing soft and perfect for the wintery months. The rich buttery balm melts instantly into lips leaving them feeling soft and smooth.

  3. If we're in a bit of a jam and did need to get ready quickly, we use a little bit of Lush's Lip Scrub followed by one of the lip butters and your lippie of choice. I love Bobby Brown Old Hollywood - the perfect red!

To win a set of the Lip Butters, simply tell us your lip prep tip along with your email and twitter name to enter.

Giveaway is UK only and open till Midnight Sunday 6 January 2013.

Good luck and Happy New Year from us both.

NOTD - Nails Inc Saville Row

Just a quick NOTD!  I love deep wine, berry and plum colours for winter. I feel like they go with my entire wardrobe.

This little beaut is Nails Inc Saville Row - described as a deep rich plum.  After two coats you get a lovely dark colour and lovely shine.  It actually ends up a little dark on the nails then in the bottle but not too much too worry about.

Perfect for those wintry months.

Christmas Sparkle....

So I have two Christmas Parties coming up. One this Friday and one the following Friday. The first one is a Team night with a meal and hopefully a few cheeky cocktails and dancing afterwards! Where as the second is a firm night out and has a bit more of a formal dress code.

For the first one I really fancied a sparkly dress.  I've been a little obsessed with sequins at the moment and if anyone follows me on Pinterest ( you'll see on my party dress board that there's lots of sparkle.  Well I found this little beauty in Primark. It's part of the Limited Range which is luckily stocked in Liverpool as I had already spied it on Look online and really wanted to try it.  Originally £25.00 it was reduced down to £10.00 - bargain.

Haven't quite decided on shoes and accessories just yet put I'll take pics on Friday and put up an OOTN post on Saturday.

Japonesque Brushes and Tools...

I was kindly sent a selection of Japonesque Brushes/Tools to try out.  I've seen the brushes about but didn't really know where I could get them from and after a quick google search I actually discovered that you can purchase them from John Lewis and a couple of the brushes in Boots. Actually ended up going and having a look in John Lewis and was really impressed with the selection.

I received the Pro Angled Brow Definer Brush 240, Pro Brow/Lash Comb 244 and an Artisan Slant Tip Tweezer. First up the 244 is a great staple brow comb, it's nothing to rave about but it does the job.  The 240 Brow Definer is a fab little brush, the bristles are quite stiff and the size of the brush is quite small which makes it a lot easier to apply the product.  I end up with a much clearer, defined yet natural brow.

Last up who doesn't love a tweezer - I'm just a little obsessed! I have about 8 to 10 different ones.  I've found these to be fantastic for removing stray hairs and keeping my brows lovely and shapped - quick and simple!  The tweezers are definitely very high quality. Even better if the tweezers loose their edge, you simply returned to Japonesque and they'll recondition them for free!

Not only are the brushes fantastic but they arrive so cutely wrapped!  It feels like you've received a lovely little present.

Winter Skin Savers....

With the winter well and truly upon us I thought it would be a good time to share some of my winter skin savers with you! As soon as the weather turns my hands and face get so dry and just don't cope well with the change.  In order to cope I rely on these two little beauties.

The lovely Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil and Marshmallow Hand Food from Soap and Glory is not only hydrating and non-greasy but is seriously the yummiest hand cream I've ever used.  It's not badly priced at £5.00 for 125ml, especially when it's the only thing that seem to deal my the dry skin I get on my hands. I can't leave the house without this in my bag.

My other little gem is Boots Traditional Skin Care - Cold Cream.  For the bargain price of £2.42 for 200ml, this is such an all rounder.  You can use it too take your makeup off, for extra moisture and even as a hand cream. I tend to apply a little to my nose at night (always get dry skin on my nose) and then a little to my hand.  When I'm having a really bad week I apply all over my face or use as a mask.  A little of this goes a very long way and leaves my skin soft and hydrated.
