Wayne Goss in The Body Shop + mini haul + new products! 

Hello my little buttons!! 

I haven’t been to The Body Shop for a while so I popped in today to pick up a few bits and have a nosy. The first thing I noticed was this fabulous display #daretomask full of fancy new face masks!!! Face masks are one of my favourite things in the whole wide world. The two I was drawn to was the Himalayan Charcoal mask and the Ethiopian Honey Mask. As the were £15 each I decided to get samples to try at home first, one thing I love about the body shop is the samples to try before you buy. I also loved the variety, they really have covered all skin types and mask requirements, the packaging looks really smart too. 

The main reason I went in was to buy a few bits from the seaweed skin care range, which if you have followed me for a while you’ll know it’s my all time favourite skin care line. The two best products in the line, in my opinion, are the oil balancing clay mask and the oil control over night gel. Usually these are £23 together. Today I found a cute little pre packed box with both these products in for £16. Bargain!!! I also noticed all the skin care had been repackaged which I think really adds to the luxurious feel of the products. 

The big surprise for me was seeing Wayne Goss posters and leaflets all over the shop promoting The Body Shops eyeshadows! I’m not sure if they have reformulated the eyeshadows as last time I used them I wasn’t overly impressed. I really value goss’s opinion so I am tempted to try the new palettes they had in store. 

Over all a fun little trip out! What body shop product can you not live without?! 

Lots of love

Why does everyone hate Sanders Kennedy?! 

Hello my little buttons!! 
I am a YouTube junkie, and I can admit that. I watch YouTube while making the kids lunch boxes, while I’m doing my house work, cooking dinner, and pretty much every other sneaky moment I can. I watch a wide variety of channels but one of my favourites channel genre’s …as controversial as it is….is YouTube gossip/drama channels. 

One rather large gossip channel is Sander Kennedy, recently his subscriber count has blow up but I’ve been watching him from back in the day before he came really popular and I’ve gotta say I love him! 

As well as gossip videos Sanders has made some really heart wrenching personal videos about his life and his past which must have been incredibly difficult to talk about but his intention was to help other people. I really admired him for this as putting yourself out there online can leave you very vulnerable and exposed.

I watch pretty much every video he posts as I love to hear what he has to say, I think he’s hilarious and so entertaining. Even if there are 100 other YouTubers with the same gossip video I always go to Sanders first. He’s the kind of guy that as I’m watching I feel like we’re having a coffee and a good old catch up, which is exactly what I want from a gossip channel!!! 

People are complaining he’s made too many videos on Jeffree Star, personally I would disagree. JS is a huge topic of conversation right now and the people that follow that drama want to know every little detail and as JS keeps f*cking up and as more issues are coming to light, there’s more gossip all the time!! 

There seems to be quite a lot of bitchiness going on between quite a few of the gossip channel creator’s, but to be honest I don’t take it all too seriously. YouTube is there for your entertainment, I get that some people don’t enjoy watching conflict, which is fine as they’re a million other videos to watch. At the end of the day everyone is trying to grow their channels and as much as people deny it conflict and gossip gets views, I don’t meant that maliciously it’s the truth lol.

I really hope I don’t get a lot of hate for this post as it’s meant to be light hearted but I just don’t get why he’s so hated!!? Sanders is one of my favourite YouTubers  I love his sass and I don’t think he’s a bad person at all. I want to say that I do love other drama channels, some of which seem to be “anti Sanders” and this isn’t me taking any kind of side I just think it’s quite an interesting topic going on right now in the YouTube world. 

What do you think about Sanders?! 

Lots of love

buttonnailslovesmakeup is back!! (life update)

Hello my little buttons! 

I hope your all doing well, it’s been quite a while since I posted. I am not under any illusion that I have a big audience nor that I have been missed but I decided to blog on my summer, what I’ve been up to and where I have been for the odd person that might be curious. 

I want to start by saying I love writing, this blog has been so much fun and I have really missed it. It is a fun hobby that gives me joy and watching it grow is so exciting. Every like or comment I receive makes my day, I love chatting with you all about products and hearing what you have to say. The fact someone took time out of their day to comment still blows my mind.

It also happens to be pretty time consuming, finding the time to do my makeup every day, take photos, notes on products, writing up drafts then edit upon edit to make sure I’ve got it just right. At times it can really take over! 

For those of you that don’t know I have a pretty busy life in the ‘real world’ I have two beautiful children, ellie who is nearly 9 and Stanley who is 4. I have a wonderful other half called Dave who I have been with for nearly 10 years. We have a beautiful but mental cat called kitty.

I have my own business from home called button nails where I offer gelish nails (an insane amount of nail art) as well as individual eyelash extentions. I also work one morning a week for my dad’s company as well as a few house cleaning jobs. My hands are pretty full most of the time and sometimes life feels like a juggling act, between school runs, kids clubs, work, vets, doctors/dentist appointments, meetings, work, house work….this list goes on. It can be hard to find time for anything else. But since starting this blog I have always found time as it is a huge passion of mine. 

This summer was the last summer before Stanley started full time school and I was determined to make the most of it, so I decided to put the blog on hold for the holidays and have fun with my family. I don’t want this blog to become something I felt forced to do. I have been crazy busy with work too so it was put on the back burner. Im happy to say the blogging itch is back and so am I.
Please don’t think I’m complaining about my life because I’m really not, I love my crazy odd little family and rushing about all the time. I winge n moan but I wouldn’t want it any other way. 

If you are also in the UK you will have notice how crazy hot it’s been, when the weather is sweltering I don’t tend to wear makeup. I’m a sweaty kinda gal and it drives me crazy having makeup on when it’s boiling hot. But I’ve really missed it. I love choosing what products to wear, getting creative with colours and styles and the process of applying my makeup which I find so relaxing. 

On the other hand, not wearing makeup for 2 months has been so liberating. I’ve been loving my skincare products and have appreciated good skin days more than before. I didn’t even take makeup on holiday!!!! Which was definitely a new thing for me lol.

I have boxes of beauty products ready to be used and tried and tested so watch this space you’ll be reading a lot more from me this month!!! 

I hope you all had a great summer!

Lots of love
