BonnieXo lipsticks

Hello lovelies, As you may of seen on Instagram, I posted a photo of two lipsticks saying `I made my own lipsticks over @bonniexocosmetics my review will be up on my blog in an hour`... so here it is :)
Bonniexo lipsticks are such a great idea for presents or just to personlise your lipstick collection! You get to choose the shade & the scent of the lipstick you want..such a great idea. I chose mocha in scent vanilla and cantaloupe in scent strawberry, they both smell absolutely amazing, of course you dont have to choose a scent, but I feel that it adds that personlised touch to them. 
My favourite out of the two will have to be the cantaloupe, great for summer, although it would of been better if it wasn't as orange (my fault choosing the shade) but after I've applied a lip gloss over it, it looks fab. My favourite scent out of the two is defiantly the vanilla one, it smells amazing! I highly recommend you choose scent vanilla for the lipsticks, I just want to smell all …

Live Love and instant effects review

Hello lovelies, Recently I heard about 2 makeup brands  Live Love amd instant effect which are sold in BHS stores, I was lucky to try some and review it to you <3 I got: .love your eyes pallete, love sexy .love blush pride  .love blush affection .body mist elegance .love your look live to ignite 2 pallete .instant effects lip plumper
One of my favourites will have to be the love your eyes pallete `love sexy` you get 18 eyeshadows and a pro double ended brush, firstly I love the mirror! It is super clear, one of the best mirrors I've seen on a pallete. The shades are beautiful & shimmery, my favourite looks to do with the pallete  .Smokey eye .Gold eye look (seen above)
My other favourite is the love lip plumper, okay firstly I was super confused with how this works, basically you press the button at the bottom, apply directly to the lips using the brush provided, your lips will look fuller, more voluminous within 2 minutes! It made my lips look smoother, plumped alot more …

Bakerdays Mothersday cake review

Hello again lovelies, Have you got your mum her Mothersday gifts yet? How cute is this cake? This is the special mothers day letterbox gift cake from Bakerdays,  You can choose the design, the size, personlise it with writing, photos, you can also choose the filling such as chocolate chip sponge, fruit cake etc, you can also get cupcakes! Perfect for partys. This cake is 12cm x 2.5cm so it fits through the letterbox, when delivered, I think its a perfect sized cake for a present for someone, it serves 3-4 people. I love how this cake turned out, my mum loves personalised things and she loved this cake, she also loved that it was vanilla, the smell was incredible!!! Highly recommend this site, If your looking for a cake for Mothersday or even for someones birthday! Instagram @bakerdays  Thankyou Bakerdays & Thankyou for reading Love Gem X 

Mini Asos haul

Hello lovelies,
I bought a few things from Asos & decided to show you what I got, I bought more things but they're presents so I cant put them on here...
So the items I bought:
.Boohoo cut out waist playsuit
.Maybelline matte mattifying powder
.Brave soul racer back vest
.Asos mini skirt with zip through

I love that Asos sells things from Riverisland, Newlook, Boohoo etc, saves you time.
My favourite would have to be the Boohoo cut out waist playsuit, I loved it as soon as I added it to the Asos basket, why wouldn't you? Its stunning.. I also love the colour and this playsuit is perfect for the spring/summer with my Chelsea boots (from asos).

The Maybelline matte mattifying powder is perfect for a top up powder, I keep this in my handbag incase of any touchups.

Thankyou for reading, I highly recommend asos to you guys!
Hope your having a lovely weekend,
Love Gem

Dolcis Shoes

Hello Lovelies,
I needed new boots as I only seem to wear the Chelsea boots from asos & the highnee boots from dolcis which I love.
I also needed new high heels as I cant seem to find my other ones which I own.
The lovely lady from Dolcis kindly sent me the
.Dolcis verona mid calf boots £45.00
.Dolcis chassie pointed mary jane shoes £25.00

These mid calf boots are so comfortable, I realised that they have a fur lining inside, meaning whatever you wear with these, your feet will be super comfortable.
They are pretty versatile, so you could really wear these with anything, I prefer wearing these with an oversized jumper.

How stunning are these chassie pointed Mary jane shoes? I haven't had gorgeous high heeled shoes like these in a long time, they're also pretty versatile meaning you could wear these with anything, I would wear these with my blue jeans (as seen above) or with a black dress, I love the pointed toe & cut out detailing, they also have a subtle reptile effe…

Nouveau Lashes

Wanting beautiful looking lashes?

Glamour/Style 1 lashes^ 

Hello lovelies, I hope your well, as you have may of seen before, I have written about Nouveau lashes before, but I'm here again talking about other items they sell <3 The items above are: .Glamour/Style 1 lashes £6.99 .Natural/Style 1 lashes £6.99 .Natural/Style lashes £6.99 .Lash extension remover £9.99 .Eye makeup remover £14.99 .Conditioning serum £14.99
I was really excited when I received these items especially the eye makeup remover & the conditioning serum, I have been itching to use these. My favorite lashes out of the three are definitely the Glamour/Style 1 lashes (as worn above) they look pretty natural but makes your lases look super volumized, they are so easy & comfortable to wear, lasts all day, you do not need to put tonnes of glue on either which is perfect!
The lash extension remover helps removes individual lashes applied by a Nouveau lashes technician, you brush the applicator on the lashes…

Mini haul

Hello lovelies, I bought some items the other morning & decided to show you what I got, Firstly I really needed a new purse as I had my studded river island purse for years and its started to fade slightly, so I found this lovely blue zipped purse in topshop, I mainly bought it from seeing all of the compartments inside the purse, super handy when you have loads of cards etc, it is also super light. How stunning is this leather jacket? The detailing is stunning and Im in love with it.
The patterned cushion is from primark and was only £5.00!  It is so pretty, and goes with my homeware perfectly, I recommend you to have a look at the primarks homeware right now. Lastly Soap & Glory scrub of your life & the righteous butter from boots, who doesn't love soap & glory? I have always stuck to soap & glory but recently stopped and fell in love with soap & glory all over again, my favourite will always be the righteous butter, it smells amazing, great for smoothin…

Ambereve candles

Hello lovelies, I hope your having a lovely day, As you may know I love candles especially scented ones, Ambereve sells luxury scented candles which are handmade in London, they have a range of scents to inspire your senses. The ones seen above are: .Parisian spring (the bigger candle) .Bois .Lime Basil & Mandarin .Cassis & Fig
As soon as I opened the parcel, I could smell the candles right away, They smell amazing together. The Parisian spring, I feel like this scent is more suitable for the front room, it is a fresh scent, I also love the way its packaged.
The Bois, Lime basil & Mandarin and the Cassis & fig candles all smell amazing, at first I thought out of the three I would prefer the lime candle as I love lime scents, however the Cassis & Fig is by far my favourite scent out of all of these, its a fresh scent, reminds me slightly how winter/spring would smell like, You could put this candle in every room, right now it is in my bedroom as it smells so lovely…

LissieDesign review

Evening lovelies, Hope your all well, I seem to be loving silver jewellery right now, the lovely lady from Lissie design sent me this sterling silver bracelet, She handmakes all of the jewellery sold on her etsy/website, I love when you go on her etsy you can choose the size of the bracelet and the finish i.e shiny finish, okydizied finish, normally you can not do this, so I feel like it gives you that personlised touch. I love how it comes in the lovely gift box with the ribbon around it, This bracelet is pretty versatile meaning I could really wear anything with it, as seen above Iam wearing the bracelet on its own but Im also wearing a choker & a necklace which is also silver to match this. She has a range of different jewellery from arrow necklaces to winged earrings to locket necklaces, these are great for presents especially valentines day! Have a look at her site, she sells so many lovely pieces :) Instagram @lissiedesign
Thankyou Lissie & Thankyou …
