Just to let you know - limited posts

To all my lovely followers,
Some of you may know that the holy month of Ramadan is upon us and so i will be limiting the posts on my blog, It really depends i might do a post after two days or even a week. I have decided to dedicate more time to religion and less in worldly matters/things. If you want to keep updated then follow me on twitter am always posting tweets <3 @theycallme_zara

Timothy Roe bespoke jewellery - my review












Spinning ring - Primo - 'crown jewel' £19.00
I came across this online jewellery store called Timothy Roe bespoke jewellery after seeing it around the blogosphere I was impressed with the range of jewellery styles.
I was kindly sent a beautiful package from the company, I was given a choice of what i would like to review from the Spinning Jewellery collection. it was a hard choice, but I happily settled with the “Crown Jewel" Spinning Ring. I must say that it was very beautifully packaged, I especially loved the branded ribbon tied, purple gift bag. The gift box and bag were both excellent quality which added to the fine jewellery 'experience'.The craftmanship that has gone into the ring is just amazing! the ring is made from 100% sterling silver. The ring can be stacked with other Spinning rings to make a unique combination, or it can be worn on its own. I love fine silver jewellery and this will definitely be in my new daily favourites its so eye catching and great for everyday wear. This retails for £19 and you can buy online now from Timothy Roe.

Kitsch heaven jewellery - my review










Lately i have been changing my perspective towards accessories and i am loving the whole 'rock' look and my clothing colour palette has changed too. Not as much colour but deeper shades and more black!
Kitsch heaven is the perfect place to get your accessories if your into the rock/grunge scene. I like how there's a specific colour range in the jewellery, blacks,pinks,purples,blues and golds.
I was sent a lil package but i was unaware of the contents, it's more fun that way because you don't know what to expect.
I received a necklace, earrings and two rings, each piece is unique and i especially love the 'bones' simply because it's handmade and it's unique. Something not many people would have but this is great for if you go through phases say one day boho and one day rock chick.The rings are nice too i do like glitter and the mickey mouse ring is my fave! I really love accessories and i find that if you are looking for something unique then definitely take a look at what kitsch heaven has to offer! When i tried all of the jewellery on it was comfortable, not heavy or in the way but it definitely will catch the eyes of the public and i can honestly say that lots of care has gone into creating each piece and the detailing is great! do not delay! check it out now... links are below :)

Chanel inspired jewellery by Zoeybaby808 - My review







The packaging was sooo cute too, loved the look of this when i recieved it.
Zoeybaby808 is a lovely lil company on Etsy and the owner (Kimberly) sells high quality earrings,rings,decor pieces and phone cases that are so bedazzled, she uses genuine Swarovski crystals!
I was asked what i would like to review i could not pass up the earrings and rings. I am into monochromatics now so i chose the black and white combo on both of the jewellery pieces but there are other combinations like black and hot pink.
Both pieces are finished off to a highest standard and i like how you don't have to break the bank to wear these. The ring is selling for £4.95 ($7.50) and the earrings are £4.62 ($7.10)
Both the jewellery pieces has silver glitter which adds a nice touch. 
If your like me and you love accessories but you want something unique and not what everyone has then check out Zoeybaby808!

You can find Zoeybaby808 on Etsy, here is the link http://www.etsy.com/shop/zoeybaby808?ref=top_trail

Simple sun kissed moisture cream - my review




 *The product shown is a sample.*

Though the weather in the UK is currently not summery don't let it stop you from looking sunkissed and glowing. Simple skincare are constantly taking new skincare products out and this was one i just had to try out.
The gradual tan is subtle but not non-existent. It may not be obvious when you first start using it but my skin definitely has a glow that wasn't there before. There are no streaks and there's no orange build-up, as promised,it also doesn't dry skin out either. I appreciate the UVA/UVB protection, but there's no SPF number on the packaging, so it makes you wonder how much protection there really is. I also like how there are added vitamins which gives simple products it's stamp of approval but i found that this product had a disadvantage which is the smell, oh my word, the smell. I always associate Simple products with being quite natural and gentle but this moisturiser smells chemical but it does wear off fairly quickly.
You can buy this from Boots and Superdrug RRP £4.99 50ml.


My review for this product.
PRODUCT : 8/10 
PIGMENTATION : N/A
TEXTURE : 10/10
LONGEVITY : N/A
APPLICATION : 5/5
PACKAGING : 5/5

What are your feelings about gradual tan products? Do you have a favourite brand?
