All Things Burt's Bees ♡

Hey Guys,

Before my love of lipsticks, there was a major love for lip tints, lip balms with hints of colour and those pink Nivea lip balms. Now, I barely give any of them a second thought, I'm too deep in love with lipsticks, liquid lipsticks and anything of the sort, which is where Burt's Bees comes in. As much as I love Carmex, I prefer Burt's Bees for all things lip balm+colour, they just have a much wider ranges and shades, there really is a lot to pick from. Which is where this post comes in, I'll be sharing a couple of new ranges Burt's Bees offer ...

Is it really a Miracle Finish? ♡

Hey Guys,

I'm back with another skincare post, I never used to do many of these because I never feel as though I can explain a lot about skincare, and there are amazing bloggers who can, (Anne, i.e, my personal Caroline Hirons haha!). Alas, I love skincare, testing and just finding something that works for my skin. Today, I'll be on about the Bio Essence 24K Gold Miracle Finish*. I've seen this floating around blogs and instagram for a few months now and I used to think, seriously, is it that good. But, after being kindly sent a bottle, I now see why its much loved ...

The best of drugstore skincare ♡

Hey Guys,

Drugstore skincare is pretty amazing isn't, I feel like it's taken a little bit of a back seat with all the rave about high end skincare. We have the Caudalie, Liz Earle, Origins, you name it, they've become much more popular in recent years. Which is why, I thought I'd dedicate a blog post about a few of my favourite drugstore bits. I use a lot more of drugstore skincare than I do, high end. I think the only high end cleanser, I've ever gotten on with is the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, it's fabulous, but I've yet to find a 'dupe' for it. Actually, question, can skincare really have a dupe? ...

I completely forgot to mention my skin type. I have combination, spot-prone skin, my nose can get quite oily, whilst my cheeks can be annoyingly dry!

Top 5 Lipsticks ♡

Hey Guys,

Now, its no secret I love Lipsticks, like love the thing. I think it comes from the rise in lipsticks, there has been a lot of attention and love for them and also with the fact that my mum used love a good lipstick. So I thought I kick off a mini series of 'Top 5' posts with my top 5 lipsticks. I wasn't sure whether or not to combine liquid lipsticks with this lipstick post, so I went and kept them separate because they are quite different from each other ...

Is it worth the hype | DHC Skincare

Hey Guys,

Have you heard about DHC Skincare? Well, its all the rave at the moment, I've seen and read quite a few blog posts on this brand and I've always wanted to give it a go myself. But a few weeks ago, I was asked if I would like to try a few DHC bits, kindly said yes and started testing away. It's a Japanese Skincare brand whom base most of their products on Spanish Olive Oil! I love Olive Oil for the skin, its so nourishing and soothing, but naturally having oily skin, and adding olive oil on top can be a little tricky ...

Perfumes in Rotation ♡

Hey Guys,

Perfumes, this post is about perfumes, I mean, I guess you probably guessed that right. I never really talk about Perfumes on here because, I'm not that great at explaining the scent, its usually a line or two. But one person, I do now, who is beyond fabulous at writing up perfume posts, is Kay, over at Shoes and Glitter. Kay has a serious passion and love for perfume and it really shows through her descriptions and photography and so today, I thought I'd give it an amateur attempt, and discuss what perfumes I've been grabbing for ...

July Favourites ... In one box? ♡

Hey Guys,

Yup, its true, there ain't no click bait going on around these parts, my July Faves, all in one box! I was compiling up my favourites for this post and they all seem to come from a beauty box that I was reviewing and thought, hey, why don't I just put it all in a faves post, and that's where this post comes in! I haven't even stated the box, its the Cohorted Beauty Box*. I was kindly sent a box and couldn't be happier with the contents. Let me describe a little bit about the box first, its a subscription box service, for a monthly cost of £35.00 and you receive luxury beauty products from brands such as Nars and Dior, whilst being introduced to new and upcoming brands. It's a pretty special box of goodies, because not only are you getting high end makeup, you're getting it for a much lower price than if you were to purchase the products individually ...

My NYX Collection ♡

Hey Guys,

So, today, I have a collection post, I don't think I've ever done one of these, purely because my one brand collections are quite tiny, but when taking a few Instagram Pictures, I realised, oh, I've got quite a few NYX Lippies, lets just write a post on them. Which is why you're reading this post lol. Now, I'll be the first to admit, I don't have a lot from NYX, its a brand I love, but I've only ever purchased lip products, I need to delve into the life outside of lipsticks lol. But here I am, sharing what I've got so far ...

5 Product Stila Cosmetics Face ♡

Hey Guys,

Eeeep, I'm back with another 5 Product Face, I'll leave the ones I've done before, right at the end of the post. But I'm super excited about this one, purely because I've collaborated with ASOS Beauty again and I couldn't be more happier. I wrote about a few Summer ASOS Beauty Exclusives last month, and today, I'll be writing about Stila Cosmetics. Its a brand I have always wanted to try, I mean, how can one not, everything on offer is incredibly dreamy and so with that, I have been able to put together a 5 Product Face, using Stila products, with my base, just consisting of the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, which we all know I love ...

Tip Tastes | Wagamama ♡

Hey Guys,

Back with another Tip Tastes, this is the last one I have in the bank, I think. That only means one thing, I need to get my butt to a few restaurants! But, for today I have a quick little, possibly, controversial review on Wagamama. I'm not sure if the restaurant is world wide, hang on, let me give it a little google. Okay, it turns out they are, there's franchises in Europe and scattered all over the world. It's of a Japanese Cuisine and offers many dishes such as Ramen noodle soups and of course, its famous and much loved Chicken Katsu Curry. I popped in with a friend and here's what I thought of it all ...

One for the Beauty Lovers ♡

Hey Guys,

What is your take on subscription boxes? Although I'm interested in them, I've never subscribed to one. Only because I don't know if I'll end up liking the monthly products sent. If you're paying, what, £10-£20 a month for beauty products, you want them to be good and suited to you. That's where the Latest In Beauty Box* comes in, its of course a subscription box, but you can personalize it. You have free reign on choosing what products you'd like to arrive on your door step, and for a much lower price than if you were to buy them individually. If you're a little bit of a bargain hunter, we can agree that it's a great find! I was kindly allowed to build my own box from the Beauty Guru Section and the products on offer were right up my street ...

Well, that's exactly what I'm going to post today and let you know whether you should splurge or save on the HB Liquid Mattes.

June Favourites ♡

Hey Guys,

So June, how has it been? Well, its been alright, one of those months where you've just gotten along with life, nothing exciting. But, I do have to say, this month has gone quite fast, because my brother still isn't well, we're at the hospital twice a week. Monday for a blood test and Thursday for an appointment with the consultant and nurse, so I guess, those trips have made the month go a lot faster. That was life in June, beauty in June is a whole different story, I've had quite a few favourites, I guess I've just been enjoying a few things from a little Superdrug Haul ...

Hey Guys,

So, do you ever look for random, cool things, but can never find them through main stream shops, whether that be, online or in store? Well, that's where Uncommon Goods comes in. I've collaborated with the pretty unique company for today's post to share everything they do. I should probably begin by what the actual website is lol! The definition is in the title, its a online market place whom sell the most uncommon goods, from Unique Wedding Gifts, such as personalised chopping boards to gifting summer babies with Cute Baby Shower Gifts ...

Tip Tests | Dying Joni Jeans ♡

Hey Guys,

I can't even lie about this one, I've had it in my drafts for months. I'm talking months, truth be told, it kept being pushed down to the bottom until I had found it written on my notebook and thought, right, that's it, I'm going to try the process out. I mean, it's all in the title, most of us know about the greatness that is the Topshop Joni Jeans, they're the most perfect jeans, the fit, length, I just love them. Two things I don't love though, the price and the fade. Urgh, the fade. They aren't cheap at £36.00, and with them fading after about 10-15 washes, its annoying, very annoying. So, I thought, how can I save me buying another pair, and that's when my Textiles days came into play. I remembered dying materials and it was a fairly simple process, so off I went to hunt down some black dye ...

Hey Guys,

So, I may have done a teency bit of shopping, that mainly consisted of Lip products, major lipstick lover here, can you blame me? LOL. To be fair, I haven't 'beauty shopped' or any kind of shopped in ages, I don't think I've done a proper girly shop in ages, I'm talking since last year, I know right! I remember a year or two ago, I'd be browsing Forever 21 or New Look for hours on end but I haven't done any of it lately, but makeup shopping, I love! Which is why, I popped into Superdrug and hunted down a few new releases along with things I've been lusting for ...

Get summer ready with ASOS Beauty ♡

Hey Guys,

Summer is near, well being in the UK, it doesn't seem so. I mean, if you follow British people or bloggers on Social Media, you would realise, we talk about the weather a lot, like a lot, a lot. And its only because the weather is so up and down, you can have a week full of amazing sun and the next, its rain and wind central, now, that's a combination I hate. Wind and rain, its just worst. I don't even think waterproof mascara and withstand it all. How ironic, I've just gone on one about the weather. Anyway, what I was supposed to get onto was summer and a few products that I know I'll be frequently using. The beauty department over at ASOS were kind enough to send me a few products suitable for summer and pretty much any occasion ...

Fun fact, as I wrote the title of the post, I had to go through all the months because I forgot what became before June LOL. It happens, to the best of us, does it really? I always have to do that with the Alphabet, go through the entire thing to get to one letter, if I have to figure what letter comes where. I'll tell you what it is, its the whole LMNOP, I mean the Alphabet song is nice and steady and when you get to LMNOP, you have to fasten your pace, am I right? Yup, totally went on a tangent, but today I'm sharing a few of my May favourites ...

A few ways to de-stress ♡

Hey Guys,

Today, I'm talking De-Stressing, nope, it's not easy and we all wish we could do it more frequently, we all have busy lives and are often rushed off our feet, with kids, work, family and general day to day errands. I rarely de-stress, but I try and do little things here and there, whether that be scoffing on a few  (many) biscuits or binging on a TV Show. Also, as it's exam season, hopefully a few of these will help you feel a little at ease. I've discovered a few new ways, that I thought I'd share with you all ...

Attempting Pinterest | DIY Bath Bombs ♡

Of course, as per usual I was browsing pinterest and randomly came across DIY Bath Bombs, I never knew these were a thing but there's so many pins out there on Bath Bombs. I thought this could be a game changer, when it comes to the Bath Bomb front but half way through the process, I retracted that statement ...

5 Product High End Face ♡

Hey Guys,

So I thought I'd bring you all a high end version of the 5 product face because I kind of wanted to see how things differ. I don't buy a lot of high end products because I find that drugstore products can often provide the same benefit but for a lower price. But when I do buy high end face products, I try and do a little bit of research into what I want and then often splurge away ...

Reminiscing with AVON ♡

Hey Guys,

Avon, ah, gold ol' Avon, it was the makeup brand of my teenage years. I remember the first time, I was introduced to Avon, I say me, it was actually my mum, but of course, I was tagged to her lol. I was getting my brows done (yes, I was very early to the whole getting your brows threaded game, 13, to be precise!) and the eyebrow lady goes, have a flick through the little catalouge and write down what you want, I'll order it in for you. From that point, every time we went to her, I'd browse all the catalouges that had come in and want everything, but my favourite part was, flicking to the perfume section. I used rub the little 'rub me' sign near the fragrance, until the page bled and then totally, sniffing it in front of people getting their brows done or hair chopped, without any shame, how pleasant were I?

Haha, I can't have been the only one that did this, right? Any who, when I was offered a few bits from the new Avon Collection, I couldn't help but be taken back ...

April Favourites ♡

Hey Guys,

Aaaaah, it feels so so good to be back and actually writing up a post. You all probably figured but I took an impromptu break because I physically couldn't get any posts out. I guess a massive update is needed? Okay, so around 3/4 weeks ago, my brother was admitted into hospital and had been there until last Weds, when he finally got discharged. He was diagnosed with Colitis, it's an inflammatory bowel disease and I won't go into all the details but its where the bowel gets all red, sore and inflamed. Its not fun to say the least, it's actually quite distressing and exhausting. Also, as my brother is only 15, he's allowed a parent to stay overnight, so that's where my dad comes in, he was staying with my brother every night and then would leave to have a shower at home when I arrived. I would try and get there for 11, my dad would leave and come back around 3, then my sister would come after work at 7, and we would both leave at 10 in the night. And that cycle was repeated for just under the month. And it doesn't end there lol, to add to the mix, I had two assignments due and an exam to revise for. So there was me, lugging my laptop to the hospital, trying to get whatever I could done, and then would be up until 2 to finish the rest off! Thankfully, I somehow, I don't even know how, managed to get it done and my last exam was  week. Which means, I'm now totally free and on the job hunt! To further add to the mix, oh yes, there's more, it was my mums birthday, the first one without her, and emotions already were high, but they were pretty heightened on her birthday.  So, to sum it up, my dad was like the hospital resident whilst I was on a 11-10 visiting shift lol! So yup, that's why I physically couldn't get a post out.

I think I included one of their liquid lipsticks in a favourites post before and said I would do a review but I thought I'd turn it into a haul because I took advantage of a sale Beauty Bay had and purchased two more goods.

When I was around 15/16, I really started to get into making my own face masks with household ingredients, and probably out of like 10, only 1 worked a treat lol. Every Sunday I used to make a honey and olive oil mask and oh my, it was amazing, I can't really remember why I stopped but now I prefer something targeted to my skin type.

Tanda Zap | No Go Zone ⛔

Hey Guys,

So today, I bring you all another installment of the 'no go zone' which is basically where I warn you all off the products that frankly were a waste of money, time and effort! Today's product has to be one of the worst products I've ever brought, well I asked for it a few Christmas' ago, so given. I should've asked for something else. I only asked for it as a Christmas gift because my Acne was pretty bad and in its prime and I had tried everything as that point and came across this in a Youtube and thought 'YES, this has to be the cure' but it did absolutely nothing. This is a pretty short post but it's more of a warning than a full review because I can't review something where the only words I use are pointless, wasted money, rubbish.

I should probably explain what this one is about, its pretty much in the title, it's me attempting things that I've found on Pinterest. I try and replicate what ever I've found and see if it's any good. I love Pinterest, I mean who doesn't, even my Dad has an account, he genuinely does LOL!

Which is why, I bring you all today's post, I wanted to really test if this hack works because it could be a game changer. I've seen a few other hacks whereby the person kind of scoops out the lipstick from the bottom of the bullet and then presses that with the broken part into a tablet/pill/medicine container thingy and places that in the fridge until it hardens but I thought, that's no fun for a post ...

February, how was it?

What I Got For My 21st ♡

Hey Guys,

Okay, so, before I even go into this post, I need to right a little disclaimer, this isn't a braggy, oh, I got this, I got that for my birthday, oh look at me' nor is it a 'show off' post or any type of mean, passive aggressive post in any way, I ain't no Regina George!

Okay, with that out the way, I can finally get onto this post, I love watching, 'what I got video's' purely because I'm nosey and I just love to know what people got! Also because I find them interesting and intriguing, which is why I decided to post this one, because I've never done one and I thought even if I'm only ever going to do one of these in my entire blogging existence, it has to be one from my 21st. From Tuesday's post, you'll know that I turned 21 two Saturdays ago and I celebrated the day pretty low key with my family and then a few days later, I celebrated with my friends and we went out to grab a bite to eat and watch Aladdin the Musical, which by the way is FREAKIN AMAZING!! If you're wanting to watch a musical, go for that one, you will not be disappointed, the production, performances, costumes, everything, was beyond incredible. I side tracked, badly lol! But yes, I was lucky to receive a few amazing gifts from my friends and family ...

Hey Guys,

A little of a different post today but I felt all nostalgic because I turned 21 two Saturdays ago, yup the big 2 1, and also I was in the mood to write more of a talkative and personal post, rather then what I usually post. The past year being 20 has been nuts, like seriously nuts, things happened that I never in forever could/would have even thought to imagine but I have learnt so much at 20 and I thought I would share that with you today and also because I've discovered so much about myself ...

Blogging and Uni Life: 3 Tips ♡

Hey Guys,

So, I was in the mood of writing a talkative post and this one has been on my list of 'must write posts' for a while and I thought today, I'd just write it up and post it because even if one tip helps one person, it was worth it! This post, is basically how I try to manage blogging and uni life and the 3 tips that help keep me sane and on top of things. A little background? I'm in my last year of uni studying Business Management (which can get hectic and stressful at times), and as you all know, I have this little space on the internet in which I simply love, juggling the two can be difficult but it's definitely do -able ...

Tip Tastes: Chiquito Restaurant Review ♡

Hey Guys,

So I've only gone and started another series, not that we all needed anymore lol. But I've added a 'Blog Series' tab on the blog to hopefully make it easier to navigate through the different series I'm juggling. This one, I do have to say has to be one of my faves, purely because it involves food, eating, urm eating again and oh, food. Yep, I'm a real foodie and I love going out to eat, it's one of my favourite things! What is this new series you ask, well it's just me sharing my experiences at restaurants that I've never eaten at but always wanted too. Kind of like a review but not so formal, in today's post, I tasted the food of Chiquito, its a Mexican Restaurant based in the UK, well I'm not actually sure if it's worldwide, but I've always wanted to go here but never got the chance, so I dragged my friends out and here's what we made of it ...

ColouPop Lovin' I + Giveaway ♡

Hey Guys,

I'm super super excited for this weeks posts because they're ColourPop Related and I've been wanting and waiting since forever to publish them. I love ColourPop, just like the rest of the world and ever since they've started shipping to the UK, it's fair to say, I have taken full advantage. I've done three orders, yup, three, I have no shame haha! And I thought, now its about time I put them on the blog. My most recent order arrived a few days before Christmas and I have to say it was the most beautiful purely for the fact that International Shipping was free and I had no customs to pay!!! That's never happened, I well and truly dodged the Customs bullet! This post would've turned into a massive one, so I've split it into two posts, this is is about the Lippie Stixs' and the other about Liquid Lipsticks, yep, I've only ever purchased lip items and you'll soon find out, my major love of browny toned shades ... I completely forgot to mention this includes a giveaway ...

What I Eat In A Day ♡

Hey Guys,

I thought I would publish something a little different to what I usually put out. I love 'What I Eat In A Day' posts, Youtube video's, they're my absolute fave to watch, purely because I always find them interesting and I like knowing of the different kinds of food people eat. I also use them for inspiration whenever I'm stumped on what to make. Let's be honest, I'm just nosey haha! Just for a little background, I'm Vegetarian, and have been my whole life, its something I rarely think about because when I was born my family were Vegetarian so I was brought up that way, so I guess it's just a way of living for me ...

The Perfect Pamper Evening ♡

Hey Guys,

Aaah, it feels like ages since I blogged. I know I was supposed to be back last week but one of my exams had to be rescheduled and I didn't get a chance to write up a post, but it sure does feel good to be back! And exam free ... for now lol! How have you all been? We're one day from being into our second month of 2017, how crazy is that! Jan has flew by, I never thought it would but it really has. Which is why I come to you with a cosy, well deserved pamper evening. I rarely have one of these but they're so perfect for the end of a Sunday ...
