January hasn't gone by without some ups and downs, but to combat the bad day blues these four have pulled me through; 

1.Sex Bomb, Bath Ballistic
Lush is one of my all time favourite shops no matter what the month. However this month I picked up the sex bomb bath ballistic, it smells divine and fizzes and dissolves leaving the most perfect Ribena coloured bath water, and giving me soft skin and smelling beautiful. What's not to like!?  Get your's here.
2. Raven Locks Blog Being a blog addict, I'm forever looking for new blogs that I love and find interesting. I look for blogs that will inspire me to improve my own blog.

Shhhh... It's a secret!

Secrets from the fashion and beauty world are hidden all over with high flying make-up artists, design teams and all the way down to the teenage girls experimenting with their next new look.  Some of them we will never hear, while others I'm here to share. So here you are; 
1.  Say 'NO' to the sponge! Do you pick your sponge because they're the cheaper option? Well do I have news for you. Sponges may seem the cheaper option but each time you place your foundation on they're absorbing the product and leaving you with less for your money, which maybe precious pennies down the drain. So why not opt for a brush or use them fingers, they're free after all? 
2. A splash of cold. Lack that shine in your hair? Do you feel it's a little bit lifeless? Why not when you finish your shower, switch that hot to cold and splash your hair with cold . The cold water will seal the follicle locking in your conditioner keeping it shinier for longer. Worth a try, right?

Get to know me: THE ACCENT TAG!

My blog is my favourite, I love it to pieces however I'm fully aware that it's's rather impersonal. I don't do my own outfits like the majority of beauty bloggers do and I very rarely share anything about me that is not fashion on beauty related. So I decided to do a few videos, as a get to know me for my blog so I don't feel as distant from all of you. I've started it off with a ACCENT TAG because all you people are from all over the world so I pretty sure even if you're from England my accent is more than likely a bit different to yours, so why not have a watch and see if I'm right!? So there you have it my accent with a range of different questions, why not answer the questions below or even make your own video and be sure to let me know so I can watch it! That's all for now, the in's and out's, up's and down's of  Victoria Jane x

This winter I have indulged into the next book in her confessions of a shopaholic series 'Mini Shopaholic' if you love shopping, romance and drama this is the perfect read for you and will definitely get you gripped in her series. If you have seen the movie, do not let it put you off reading the books because they 10x better. Trust me! 

However if your looking for something for a little more edge and enjoyed the fifty shades of grey series and like that adult romance er…
