Christmas Wishlist Part 1

Hi guys,
So, it's nearly Christmas (woohoo!!!!) and I thought that I would share what I am wishing for this year. I don't mean to be big headed or whatever, so if you don't like people saying what they would like (whether expensive or not) then I would recommend not viewing this post, but perhaps another. This post is for beauty stuff.

I am still here

Hi guys,
I am still on holiday but I was posting to say that I won't be doing any major posts probably until I get back next Saturday.

I will do a beauty haul then but I was just saying hi and that yes, I am still here.

If you want to contact me, do not hesitate to email or talk to me at +SaffronLallem(Saffy)!


Sunday, 18 August 2013


Hi guys,
Here's a post following in the footsteps (or trying to) of in a deeper post. This is about smiling.

I am naturally a very smiley person, I will smile at the old lady opposite me on the tube before work so it is very easy to tell when I am down.

If it is this obvious and you know something is up with me and I don't want to tell you because you have been horrible earlier today, don't keep pestering me to tell you so that you can laugh at my expense. What is more don't act like a child, honey, by chasing me along a street when I have stuff to do.

What do you expect me to do? I have an expressive face and I wear my heart on my sleeve. Get over yourself and maybe then I can smile! If you were genuinely worried you would not make me sadder by pestering, you would understand and let me be.

I know it sounds like I am having a go so sorry but maybe now I can smile!


On holiday

Hi guys,
I am on holiday at the moment so I don't know when I will be blogging.

You can still contact me on Google+, Gmail etc but just do not expect me to answer immediately! I will try and get back to you asap if you do but sorry if it is a long time.


Wednesday, 14 August 2013


Hi guys,
I am so sorry that recently I haven't been updating that much. I go on holiday in a couple of days so I probably won't be blogging that much then. However when I get back, I promise to do a full season picks post and an up and coming Autumn/Winter post! Plus a post on my great mascara as seen in the pic below this post :-)

But I would like to do an announcement/plea fror help first from myself and +ShalunyaTheChronicBeauty at

If anyone knows or is a 60-70 year old female beauty/fashion/lifestyle blogger, we may be interested to do a guest post with you.
This would be a post that we haven't decided on the theme of but would be because I am in my 20s, Shalunya is in her 40s and we would like someone in their 60s.

Anyway, add me at bloglovin or +SaffronLallem, subscribe to this blog, use the contact form on the side of this blog or email me at

Sinful Colours Nail Varnish Review

Hi guys,
So, in my next post, I will go backwards and do my beauty haul. The offer on Sinful Colours in Boots is no longer on but they are still so cheap at £1.99. I am a massive fan of Sinful Colours but they have only recently become widely available in the UK.

Nail Pens

Hi guys,
So my favourite nail pens for nail art are the nail pens from Rio. I have been using these for a while and they're so great. They even have a pack of rhinestones and glitter when you buy a box of 8. They are only available by internet order I think but I love them. They take quite a while to dry but they are very long lasting and there is so much in the bottle that they last for a really long time.

Liebster Award

Hi guys,
So I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Jessalyn Nicole of Makeup by Jessalyn Nicole. She has a makeup blog where she reviews makeup, gives tips and tricks and gives tutorials.

Lancome Hypnose Drama Eyes Palette Review

Hi guys,
I bought the Hypnose Drama Eyes Palette instead of the Star which is the mascara that I bought. I preferred these colours because the blue seemed a little too shocking and bright for what I wanted it for at the time (a daytime work eyeshadow) but I probably will purchase it at some point. 

Sorry for not uploading recently but my computer went wonky and then I got a new one! So on my new computer, here I am! 

Monday, 22 July 2013

Weirdest Baby Names

Hi guys,
With the whole North West thing with Kim Kardashian's baby, I decided to do a post on the weirdest baby names that at least 5 babies as of 2013 have as their name. I found most of these names from Huffington Post but descriptions are my own!

For Girls:
Ahmiracle or Damiracle:
Seriously guys, Miracle is acceptable but WHAT!!

Beautyful or Pretty:
What if they're not!

Ok until they become a teenager; is it a challenge?

Money or Pryce:
Um, no, just no.

Yes, at least 5 babies have been called Ikea this year.

Sunny, Snow etc can work but not Shady.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

One of the more acceptable names out of this list but still No.

For Boys:
See Beautyful or Pretty

Beautiful Sanskrit names meaning full of happiness but if you speak English it's a whole different story.


Princeton or Princeten:
What if he gets into Yale or Harvard?

A lifetime of Star Wars jokes.

Once said boy is a teenager, he will have relentless mickey-taking.

Heaven is bad enough but for those who want a different spelling, DO NOT PUT HEAVY IN THE MIDDLE!!

Not a good name. Full stop.

Beauty Haul

So, the other day I went shopping and bought the following:
