Bookmarks are very random

It's strange how we can use the most unique of objects as our book marks. Even though bookmarks are generally readily available we'll use the latest receipt, bus ticket, or even old notes that we have lying around.

When I've bought books from bootfairs I've found rather unique items used as bookmarks , like old club invites and tickets to places. Surely these people missed them when they couldn't find them anymore? God forbid someone placing a winning lottery ticket as a bookmark!

What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you use anything random for a bookmark or do you just prefer to fold the page? Comments welcome!

Butts bees honey lip balm

I was lucky enough to be sent this burts bees foot and hand set as a result of a competition and my first item to be reviewed is the honey lip balm.

My first impressions are good ones; burts has a good reputation for a leading beauty range.

The lip balm I hate to say has a really off-putting, strong smell which perhaps could have been toned down a bit. However the product applies well and leaves your lips feeling really smooth and not at all sticky which is the effect of many lipbalms.

The ingredients are all natural with items like beeswax, Rosemary and soybean listed on the ingredient list.

Priced at around £2-£3 the product is quite pricey for a lip balm but you do get a very natural product and effect.

Overall this is a decent product but has been really let down on it's smell. I'd give it 2.5/5.

All natural ingredients
Easy to carry around with you
Has a good reputation

Has a really strong off-putting smell
Pricey for what it is considering you can buy lip balms for a lot cheaper

If you're a girl you have to try 17 Wild Lash mascara!

Like many girls I've been on the hunt for the perfect mascara all my life. Either they're not lengthening enough, or they don't add any volume, or they're simply okay, I've not found the one... till NOW!

I was browsing Boots the other day when I spotted this one and thought i'd check out reviews, and with 5 stars, I thought I couldn't go wrong.

The mascara comes in a really jazzy leopard print tube and comes in a number of colours; black, brown/black, wildest black etc. It has quite a large brush for lots of application and applies really easily. Lashes are instantly extended and even curled, and for the result on the bottom lashes is simply quite amazing.

At £6.29 a tube its probably one of their more pricey products but I would so recommend it, beats high priced brands like L'Oreal and Maybelline hands down.

I'd give it 5/5.

  • Curls lashes as well as volumising them
  • Gives a real false lash effect that can actually prove its claim!
  • Applies easily and makes your eyes really stand out
  • Wasn't available sooner!
