I’m Back!

Guys, I’m back! I’m sorry its been so long. I have been having a bit of a revamp on the layout. Do you like it?

So I’ve decided to bring back monthly favourites. It will start at the end of this month, which is super exciting I have loads of new bits that I want to share with you all.

Also I will be doing WCW also known as Woman Crush Wednesday, where each Wednesday I will pick a lady that I think is beautiful, inspirational or strong women. If you think there is someone that should be chosen then write a comment on their picture with #EforelleWCW!

Im not going to have set days that i post other than Wednesdays, simply because i have a job and sometimes find it hard to post by certain days. I promise that I will try my very hardest to get at least one post up a week for you.

Thanks for understanding guys!

Get to know me.

10888777_821741577933172_7853244745885438714_n

I don’t give away much information about myself and I want all my readers to know the person I am.  So I have found 50 questions to answer about myself.

Right here goes…

  1. Who is your hero? My mum is my hero, she passed away from cancer when I was 14 and she was such a brave woman. She fought it on 5 occasions and managed to beat it 4 times. She never gave up and she will always be my hero.
  2. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Orlando, Florida. I am a MASSIVE Disney fan and it would be fitting that I live near Disney World. Plus there is a lot of other things to do there and its near beaches.
  3. What is your biggest fear? The unknown after death. This might sound really stupid to some people but the fact that literally nobody knows what happens after scares the living day lights out of me. Oh and lotus pods, just typing that made me feel sick.
  4. What is your favourite family vacation? I’ve been abroad every years since I was 6 months old except this year, so there’s a lot to choose from but I think my favourite was when I was around 6 and we rented a (what seemed massive because I was so small) villa and it was my family with my aunt, uncle cousins, grandparents and it was just nice because we were all there and it was just us.
  5. What would you change about yourself if you could? My weight. Don’t get me wrong I’m not ashamed of being a chub but I’m not proud either. I don’t feel comfortable and clothes just never fit. I am working on it though. Watch this space!
  6. What really makes you angry? Ignorance, racism and homophobia. I just don’t understand it. Its 2015 people just need to get over it.
  7. What motivates you to work hard? I never want to be in the situation that I can’t give my children things, that doesn’t mean I will give them everything they ask for but I just would hate to have to say no because I can’t afford it.
  8. What is your favourite thing about your career? Im a waitress and the people i work with are like my second family. I love them the most to be honest but we also have a few regular people that come in that I absolutely adore.
  9. What is your biggest complaint about your job? Impatient people and people that let their kids make a HUGE mess. We are a family restaurant but if you wouldn’t let you kids do it at home why let them do it there?
  10. What is your proudest accomplishment? This might seem like a really deep answer but I want to be truthful with you all. When my mum passed I tried to stay strong for my Dad and Sister (she was only 11) and I didn’t let myself grief properly. A couple of years later though everything came crashing down and I went down a dark path. I ended up with severe depression. I am so proud that i managed to get through that, with the help from my friends and family.
  11. What do you wish you done more growing up? I wish I wasn’t so much of a brat and a trouble maker and I also wish that I spent more time with my family.
  12. What is your favourite book to read? Literally anything by Cecilia Ahern! ♥
  13. What makes you laugh the most? This is a really bad thing to say but when people knock into things or are in awkward situations.
  14. What was the last movie you went to? What did you think? Inside Out and I loved it. Its Disney Duh!
  15. What did you want to be when you were small? Oh I didn’t read these question through before I started answering them and i was hoping this wasn’t going to be in here but here goes. I wanted to be a…STRIPPER…there is a story behind this. It was one of the first things the I remembered as a job and it just kind of stuck.
  16. How many children do you have/want? I want 3 children and I really don’t mind what sex they are.
  17. If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be? If I could bring people back I would like to have a mother and daughter day. If I couldn’t do that I would like to do to Disney World.
  18. What is your favourite game or sport to watch and play? I love watching the gymnastics but I loved playing netball growing up, I was always goal attack.
  19. Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? Ride a horse. I love animals.
  20. What would you sing at Karaoke night? I would either be cheesy and sing ‘Daydream Beliver’ by Monkees or I would be brave and try some Beyonce
  21. What two radio stations do you listen to in the car the most? I don’t drive but at home I listen to XFM or Kiss.
  22. Which would you rather do: wash dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or vacuum the house? Clean the bathroom, Nothing nicer than a clean bathroom!
  23. If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work? Probably yard work because worms make me want to vomit.
  24. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Salmon with baby potatos and veggies!
  25. Who is your favourite author? I have kind of answered this already but its Cecila Ahern. I just think she has such a creative imagination!
  26. Have you ever had a nickname? What is it? Ive had a few that rhyme with my name, Smell, Belle. My dad always called my Gilly and my great uncle called me Ellie Smelly Jelly Belly Baby.
  27. Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not? I don’t really mind to be honest. if i know that somethings going on though i like to know about it.
  28. In the evening, would you rather play a game, visit a relative, watch a movie, or read? All of the above really, depending on how I feel that day. I more that likely do a few of these things in once night anyway.
  29. Would you rather vacation in Hawaii or Alaska, and why? Hawaii. I blame movies that i have watched!
  30. Would you rather win the lottery or work at the perfect job? And why? Have the perfect job. I like to know that I deserve the money i receive and i have worked hard for it. Plus my perfect job would be a cast member at Disney World, who would turn that down?
  31.  Which 3 people would you want to be stranded with on a deserted island? My dad, because his my rock, my sister because we need each other and my best friend Louisa because were kinda joint at the hip, plus she makes me laugh.
  32. If money was no object, what would you do all day? Go to Disney World. That’s all ever want to do.
  33. If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? There are so many years. The 50’s were great and I loved the women style. 1971 would also be a great year because thats when Disney World opened. Over all though I think I would go to 1945, the year the Soviets won the war.

August GlossyBox Review

GlossyBox_logo

Hello there! So I wanted to do an apology post because I’ve not been able to post in FOREVER! But I figured I would just keep it short and sweet and put it at the start of this GlossyBox Post.

Sometimes, no matter how much you try to dedicate yourself to your blog and your readers something in your life will get in the way. This is exactly what happened for me. The last blog post from myself was about a Job Promotion, well that went very wrong for me. I enjoy my job and I try to work my hardest all the time but sometimes things just get a little much and on this occasion it took its toll on my skin.

I suffer from eczema, I have done since birth but I have it under control, most of the time. This time though, stress took over and I ended up in a look of pain and the eczema targeted my hands and feet. For a very long time I was completely unable to walk. I demoted myself at work to try to help with my stress levels and I have been off work since MAY!

I thought about posting whilst I was off but I really had nothing to post about because I was in bed unable to move day in and day out.

BUT IM BACK!! and I don’t plan on going anywhere

So to start this blog back off I am going to give you and an August GlossyBox Mini Review…ish.

SAMSUNG CSC

For some unknown reason my August GlossyBox turned up on the 2nd September so this is a bit of a late review but never the less. So this month we were back to the classic pink box which I love! I keep al of my boxes under my bed, some I use for storage and others are empty but I also use them to put odd-shaped gifts in to make them easier to wrap.

SAMSUNG CSC

When I opened this box I was super excited to see two of the brands that I love, SASS and NAOBAY. There was also a product from a brand called MeMeMe which I haven’t got on with before and two new brands for me to try.

I though I would try the new products first as I kind of has an idea about the others already. So fist up is the Artist colour powder blush in the shade 108. This product was voted into the box by GlossyBox customers. It is a Blush/Bronzer hybrid from the Swedish brand Emite.

I personally don’t like the colour. I am very pale and it is just too dark for me. That being said, the pigmentation is incredible and you don’t need a lot of product at all! This product is fantastic if you have a darker skin tone and it is perfect for contouring too. But because of the colour I had to pass this one on. (The photo is a little more red then the product, I tried to get it as true to colour as possible.)

Full size : £20.59

The next product for me to try is a lash primer from the US brand Manna Kadar. The Glossybox description card says that it leaves your lashes ‘conditioned and voluminous’. Well, it doesn’t! I am not impressed with this product at all! I used it every night for a week and all it done was add a layer of product that was thick and dried very crusty on my eye lashes. I found that it was uncomfortable and I was constantly aware that it was on my lashes. It also says that it can be used under mascara for an ‘enhanced final effect’. I didn’t like it under mascara either, it made my mascara clump up. So over all I wasn’t impressed.

Full size: £14.55 

FullSizeRender 9_Fotor

Next I moved on the brand i didn’t get on with MeMeMe. This time I was trying a Lip glide in Playful Peach and it was PEACH!  The product is a matte-velvet chubby lip crayon and it has changed my mind on MeMeMe completely! I LOVE this product so much. It is super easy to apply and is so hydrating, the colour is very pigmented and lasts nearly all day. (I did have to touch up after food as normal.) This colour is super cute, I just wish GlossyBox had given it to us at the start of summer as it is the perfect summer shade! I will defiantly be purchasing more shades! Oh and one more thing, it’s such a great size that fits into your bag.

Full size: £6.95

FullSizeRender 6_Fotor

Moving on to the SASS Purifying Cleanser. This is an intimate wash that works as a probiotic to balance your skins PH levels. You use two pumps in the shower and rinsed with warm fresh water. I already use the Intimate Perfect Skin Concentrate which came in the May 2015 GlossyBox and I love it. So I was excited to use this wash. I have been using the Femfresh wash and it has been doing the job but the SASS Purifying Cleanser is out of this world. It is so gentle and soothing, there was no dryness after. It’s just such an amazing fresh product. I will be purchasing both the wash and concentrate again!

Vegan

Full size: £7 (BARGAIN!)

FullSizeRender 8_Fotor

Now for the final (and best) product in this box, the NAOBAY Calming Face Toner which is a Spanish 4 in 1 product. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Lets start with the packaging, it is matte white with a wooden screw lid, so simple but so beautiful. It would look great on your vanity or on you bathroom shelf. I already have the Moisturising Peeling which gets rid of any artificial skin cells and daily impurities and now I have the Calming Face Toner to work along side it. You apply a few drops to a cotton pad and dab/softly wipe your face and it effectively removes traces of make up and impurities from the skin, cleanses, tones and soothe the skin with Chamomile and Asian Cantella.

I would love to repurchase this product but I’m not sure where from, if you know where I can purchase please leave me a comment.

No animal testing

Full size: £10.65

OPI Hawaii

opi

This spring, OPI is celebrating the island state with a nail polish collection as colorful as the tropical paradise it represents. The twelve nail polish colours of OPI Hawaii include a variety of finishes and a rainbow of hues.

OPI nail polish is 3-free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP) though it’s been brought to my attention that some colours contain Formaldehyde Resin, but not all. I was only allowed one sample and it didn’t come with an allergen label so I’m not sure which polishes contain Formaldehyde Resin, but it is okay for you to check the table in store.

OPI have always been creative with nail polish names and these names are no different, with names like, Pineapples have feelings too!, Suzi Shops & Island Hops and my favourite colour Thats Hula-rious!

mint

Thats Hula-rious! is the colour that I chose to test and this was the result,

OPI-Hawaii-event-mani-3It’s a beautiful solid mint shade and it makes everything feel a little bit more like summer.

Price – £11.95

Available now!

Instagram Favorites

I follow a lot of Instagram accounts, some friends, some readers, but mostly beauty blogs. Everyday I see incredible make up skills and beautiful colours on my feed. I figured I would share some with you.

So, from this point onwards every Friday I will making a blog post on my Top 6 make up looks for that week. I will also link each look to the owners profile so you could have a look at their other looks and even try them for yourself.
