The French Pharmacy Edit ♡

Hey Guys,

We're fading away from all thing PIXI for the last post of the week, and going into Skincare, French Pharmacy Skincare to be precise. Have you heard of French Pharmacy Beauty? Are you a fan? Well, I sure am, I think my obsession started when the Beauty world raved about the La Roche Posay Serozinc, I simply needed it in my life, but hey, guess what? It was no where to be seen in the UK, however, I came across the Escentual Website, and holy moly, that changed everything. I stocked and stocked up on the Serozinc, I'd practically buy 5/6 bottles in bulk when Escentual had an offer on and keep them tucked away. And then I explored the French Pharmacy Section and its safe to say that it started a full on love for all things French Pharmacy. And so, for today's post, I thought I'd share an ode to French Pharmacy Beauty by sharing 5 great brands Escentual stock. Oh, did I forget to mention that Escenutal currently a 1/3, yup a 1/3 off on all the French Pharmacy Brands ...

PIXI Pretties | Weylie Hoang ♡

Hey Guys,

It's time for the last PIXI Pretties Post, with a little bit of unintentional alliteration for ya! The final collaboration is with Weylie Hoang from the Youtube Channel ilikeweylie. I can't lie, out of all the youtuber collaborations, I was totally unfamiliar with the Weylie, I hadn't really known her or watched her youtube videos prior to the collab, but I've watched a few of her videos and I've grown to really like her and her content. She has a vibrant and engaging personality, which is always a winner when it comes to finding new youtubers to watch ...

PIXI Pretties | Dulce Candy ♡

Hey Guys,

So, whilst writing PIXI in the title, I wrote Pizza, and now, I really want pizza, I mean Pizza is life, right? I don't think I know one person who doesn't love Pizza. I'm pretty basic with my toppings; Olives, Sweetcorn, Onions, Peppers and Chilies/Jalapenos, the vegetarian standard? But one topping that I avoid, is pinapple, each to their own and all that, but its a no for me! Why have I started a Beauty Post with Pizza, I take full responsibility if you're now craving Pizza, soz! Anyway, today is the second installment of the PIXI Pretties Collection, the Dulce Candy Collab, I wrote up the Chloe Morello Collab yesterday, which you can find right about here. I love Dulce Candy, out of the entire collection, I've watched her the longest and absolutely love her, she's just one of my faves, her makeup looks are always on point and I absolutely love her vlogs ...

PIXI Pretties | Chloe Morello ♡

Hey Guys,

It's me, on a Monday! Shock horror lols! You're probably wondering what I'm doing publishing a post on a Monday, we'll I've been wanting to share my thoughts on the new PIXI Beauty PIXI Pretties collection, and I wasn't sure whether to break it up into three posts or write one collective post up. And then I came to the conclusion to break it up into three short and snappy posts, that I'll publish today, tomorrow and Wednesday. You may have seen many bloggers receiving a wonderful PR Package of the collection, and I was so surprised when one landed on my door, I genuinely had no idea it was coming, I felt and still do feel so thankful! Anyway, lets get onto the post ...

A Pinterest Inspired Brunch ♡

Hey Guys,

Brunch? We've all heard about it, but have you ever been for Brunch? I always see people on Instagram going for Brunch on weekdays and weekends in Central London and think WOW, it looks amazing. The food and location, wow, but a little confession for you all, I've only Brunched once, and that one time was this year, when I turned 22, yup, at 22, I had my very first Brunch. I don't know why, but I was very excited for it, I guess because I've heard and seen so much about it, I was excited to 'do it' and that being, simply to eat a late breakfast, early lunch! It was in fact a success, but quite pricey, which made me thought of creating a fancy but bank account friendly homemade Brunch, one that the entire family can enjoy. That's where my good old friend Pinterest came in, I searched for inspiration (is inspiration you can search for? I don't think I've ever said that before haha) and as always Pinterest never failed, so I attempted to create Pinterest Inspired Brunch ...

Ones that made the Cut | Repurchases ♡

Hey Guys,

This post was a toss up between 'Drugstore Haul', 'Repurchases', or 'Empties', I don't know why, but I went with Repurchases. If I did a Haul, it's haul or what I've hauled before and empties, I forgot to keep the finished products. Many of these, hang on, there really aren't many, you would've heard me go on and on about, which is why I'm going to try and keep it short and snappy ...

CoverFX Power Play Foundation Review ♡

Hey Guys,

I went to my very first blogger event around two months ago and loved every minute of it. I've been invited before but always declined because I'd always be super nervous, but knowing this was a CoverFX event, I knew I had to be there. Because I absolutely love this brand! And today, I've written up a little review of their new Power Play Foundation*, I got matched for this product at the event and instantly loved it. It comes in a whooping 40 shades, yes, I wrote 40 and is completely suitable for all three undertones, there really is a perfect match for every skin tone. I'm a little fussy when it comes to Foundations as I'm not one for foundation. As many of you may know, I don't like a heavy feeling on my skin, but I'm glad there's none of that with this ...

PS, please do excuse the dodgy, well overgrown brows, we're just going to have to roll with them for today's post lol.

Who doesn't love ASOS, you can be sure to find anything and everything on there, whether that be a new pair of jeans, shoes or a new highlighter. The beauty section stocks many well known brands such as NARS, Stila Cosmetics and very recently MAC. But, now ASOS have launched their very makeup range; ASOS Design including all things makeup and that's what I'll be doing today, sharing a few bits and bobs from the range ...

6 Product theBalm Cosmetics Face ♡

Hey Guys,

Continuing on from Tuesday's theBalm Post, I'm back with another 6 Product Face, a series I started last year and it has become quite popular amongst you all. It's basically where I create a little makeup look using products from one brand. I'll be sure to leave links to the other posts right at the bottom but for today's post, I'll be creating a makeup look using products from theBalm! I was a late bloomer to theBalm Products, I always saw the products online and on social media but I could never hunt them down, I didn't know where they were sold, until I spotted them in a larger Superdrug Store one day, after swatching a few things, I finally got what all the hype was about! I mean, the Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter is such a cult product. Not to mention how amazing the products are packaged, the designs and illustrations are everything 50s, vintage and retro ...

theBalm Cosmetics | Meet Mr Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipsticks ♡

Hey Guys,

Today's post is all on the Meet Mr Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipsticks, I remember these landing a good few years ago and taking off in the beauty world. They were and still are loved by many and theBalm have added new shades to the range. I think many of us love LL's, I certainly do, but I go through periods where I just want to wear Lipsticks, and then I fall back to LL's, I think they've become more reliable in my mind. Take long days, where I'm out with friends in Central London, I want something that's going to stay put throughout the day, and most importantly through any meals, they last a lot longer than lipsticks! I was kindly sent a few of theBalm Liquid Lipsticks to try and thought I'd review them all for you today ...

New To The Beauty World: Chloe Lewis Beauty ♡

Hey Guys,

How is Spring treating you? We started off okay, with some nice sun and its back to all things gloom and rain, how fun! Hopefully it'll look up soon, actually, not everyone prefers the sun. Which are you more of, Summer or Winter? I used to like Winter, because I'm a Winter baby, and I guess I thought I was functioned to like Winter. But I don't like it so much now haha, seeing as it was freezing this year, and in Winter, you could wear the nicest outfit but you'd have to cover it all with a big coat! Anyway, this post has nothing to do with the weather actually, believe it or not, its beauty orientated haha. It's all about Chloe Lewis Beauty; a pretty new brand to the beauty world developed by the lovely and absolutely stunning Chloe Lewis, I was kindly sent a few things to try and share! It's a brand that rightfully seems to be taking off ...

Pearly Whites with Diamond Whites ♡

Hey Guys,

I'm back with another Teeth Whitening post, I've grown to love these and testing all the different brands out there. As a teenager, I was so obsessed with white teeth, I would try every home remedy going, brushing with baking soda and everything else, you name it, I've done it! Actually what I haven't done is Oil Pulling, its been raved about, maybe I need to try it next. Before I tested the Janina Charcoal Toothpaste I always so skeptical about this industry, because I never thought whitening products worked, but I can safely say that the ones I've written about work incredible well, and I've added Diamond Whites to that list ...

LOLA Makeup by Perse ♡

Hey Guys,

I love finding new makeup brands, when I was a teen, I ever knew about the world of ABH, Colourpop, and other brands, all I ever knew were the makeup stands in Boots. The L'Oreal, Rimmel and oh Barry M was a fave! Now, deeply in the world of beauty, there are things called Cult Beauty, Feel Unique etc that help satisfy my makeup obsession. And that's what I thought I'd share today, a quick little post on a new makeup brand, LOLA Makeup! I've seen the brand floating around Instagram and everything looks great, vibrant and full of colour! I've kindly been sent a few things from the brand that I'm so excited to show you all ...

Nail Polishes in Rotation ♡

Hey Guys,

Now that's one you don't usually see. You may read about makeup/ skincare in rotation but, have you read about Nail Polishes in rotation, I don't think I have, which made me want to write this post. I love nail polishes, every time I paint my nails, I automatically feel so put together and a little glamorous. But before I get that feeling, I go through loads of 'URGHS' when I accidentally rub my wet nail, and have to repaint it or or, sometimes I paint my nails in the night, think they're properly dried, sleep and wake up in the morning with imprints in my nails polish, annoying huh! Never the less, I still like to take some time on a Sunday and paint away ...

The Ultimate Sofa Sunday ♡

Hey Guys,

Sofa Sundays, are they are thing in your home? Well they sure are in ours and I absolutely love them. Sundays are usually the days for all things relax and chill. If we don't need to leave the house after our weekly shop we tend to just have a movie/catch-up Sunday. We start off by catching up any shows we've missed during the week, and after that we watch movies after movies. Last week it was A Cinderella Story, yup, I dragged my whole family in to watching it, and then Crocodile Dundee followed, I mean talk about a variety! Because Sofa Sundays have become a thing in our house, I thought I'd share what makes the Ultimate Sofa Sunday ...

I haven't done one of these in ages, I remember I used to do them at the end/beginning of every month, and then I stopped. I think it was a combination of, I kinda grew out of them and I felt they became a little repetitive, which is why I thought I would bring them back when I've actually found new favourites. Which is today! There is quite a few because I guess I've been subconsciously gathering them up, lets get started ...

Two New Skincare Additions ♡

I've got a quick little post today and its on two new skin products that I've been loving recently and its actually the first time I've tried Asian Skincare. Let me tell you how real the hype it, very real haha, not a week goes past without reading about how amazing Korean Skincare, in particular. So you can imagine my excitement when Wishtrend got in touch and wanted to send a couple of products over. I kindly received the Supple Preparation Facial Toner* and the Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop*, both of which I was pleasantly surprised by ...

What I Got For My Birthday ♡

Hey Guys,

I know this is the week of Birthday Orientated Posts but I thought I'd get them up before March begins, which is today lol - considering Feb was my Birthday Month. Right, so today I have another What I got for my Birthday, I did my first one last year and it actually went down well, so I thought I'd do another this year. A littler disclaimer, I'm not here to brag or anything of the sort, I just enjoy reading this style of posts, purely because I'm a major nosey parker! Anyway, lets get onto the post, here are the things I kindly received from my family and friends ...

Tips Tastes | Bombay Bustle (The Birthday Edition)

Hey Guys,

A little heads up, this weeks posts are orientated around my birthday lol, it was earlier in the month but only just celebrated it with friends. My friend and I have birthdays that are days apart and so we always plan something together and hit the town. Last year, we went to watch Aladdin the musical, which by the way is incredible and this year we were stuck on what to do. We ended up booking an Escape Room, we had done one for our birthday about 5 years ago and loved it, so did another at a different company. It was so much fun, if you're unaware of what an Escape Room is, well, excuse my explanation because it's not going to be good lol, but its where you get locked in a room, but before you do, the person gives you the scenario and aids you throughout the process. You have loads of things in the room, often keys leading to other rooms and you follow clues, open padlocks, do a range of things to help get out. You have an hour to do so. Sadly, we didn't get out in time, we were so close but the man came in once our time was up and showed us how we would've finished. If you're thinking of doing one, do it, you won't be disappointed. And so after that, we had reserved a table for a restaurant called Bombay Bustle (an Indian Cusine), somewhere we had never been and a little upmarket, get ready for a quick little review ...

Stranded Beauty ♡

Hey Guys,

I've got a little tag for you all today, not that I've been tagged but ya know, I fancied doing one myself lols. I think this tag already exists, just under other titles, the desert island picks, desert island beauty products etc, do they ring any bells. Well, I've gone with Stranded Beauty. If you're unaware of the tag, its basically a 'what beauty products do I take if I were to be stranded in a Desert' well, something along those lines. Now, of course, we would all need Pizza and Pasta, and anything sweet, hang on, we'd also need Water right, but what about Beauty? What would we take along the lines of Beauty? I'm not thinking of the fact that I'm going to be hot, sweaty and the sun is going to be glaring into my eyes, because with all that, we'd need SPF, I'm talking, Holy Grail's, which ones make the cut to help me survive in the Desert ...

Going to Battle with Oily Skin ♡

Hey Guys,

Yup, I missed last Thursday's post because I forgot, I genuinely forgot it was posting day, but shall I tell you why or how I suppose, I forgot? I went to my very first blogging event!! In over two years of blogging, I've turned down events because I was so nervous, but I took the plunge this time! It was for the launch of the new CoverFX Foundation, which I am most excited about! Anyway, I've had this post idea in my mind for ages now, and I'm finally getting a chance to write and publish it! It'll be a very quick post but I wanted to share the 'tips' (how fitting :P) I live by for oily skin. I have oily skin and its annoying, very annoying. But then, I also get dry skin, so one would just go with, combination skin lol. And for years now, I've been trailing methods of reducing shine throughout the day or trying to prevent the oiliness from getting anything like butter grease! Its my nose, that's the worst part, oh and my chin is starting to attract oiliness, not fun ...

I turned the grand ol' age of 22 on Sunday and I still can't believe it, all I keep thinking is that I'm 8 years from 30, nuts! I never really do anything special for my birthday, on the actual day, I spend it with family and then a few days later, or whenever we are all free, I have a day with my friends because two of us have birthdays that are days apart. For my actual day, I went for brunch with my family, which we have never done before, yup, that's a confession right there, I've never brunched before! And then a spot of shopping, dinner and dessert, food all round ...

Today, we're talking all things Bella Italia, it's one of mine and my friends fave restaurants, and actually on the way there, I said to my friend, have I done a Tip Tastes of Bella Italia? And she replied, 'nope, I don't think you have' and we were both pretty surprised because we've been so many times, and with that knowledge, I said 'I'll do one today'! I'm not sure if Bella Italia is only a UK thing, but in simple terms, its an Italian restaurant (not that its obvious in the title). I love Italian food, honestly, just give me Pizza/ Pasta for a week and I'm one happy bunny ...

The subscription itself is priced at £35, however the contents and value of the combined products often reaches over £100. The January Edit itself had a box value of £133.

The Forgotten Loves ♡

Hey Guys,

So,  last week I took a little impromptu blogging break because (ooh alliteration) I was in a little rut and I was writing a post to publish but I was forcing it out of me. And I thought, why am I doing that? I shouldn't have to be 'forced' to write, its my blog, if I'm not feeling creative, or what not, just take a break and let the writing/creative block ride out. So I did. I wasn't sure how long the rut would last, thankfully it didn't last too long but I feel much more refreshed and better for it. For any other bloggers out there who aren't getting that urge to write or feeling creative, take that little break, ride it all out and come back with ideas! Anyway, lets get onto the actual post, this one is dedicated to all the beauty products I LOVED but have since forgotten about, I never knew how many there were! The worst thing is, that I absolutely raved about them on the blog and since, they haven't been seen or mentioned ...

Hey Guys,

I was having a bath, as you do and I was thinking of blog posts I could write, as bloggers do and came up with this one! Purely because I realised that I'm using and loving more bath products than I normally do, I put that down to Christmas and all the gift sets my sister receives. Yup, I kinda, totally steal my sisters gifts that she gets from work. I mean, I like to say we share, with her permission of course but because she starts early, she can't enjoy a bath, whereas I, on the other hand, can. So, I use up what she got lol. And she's not really into all of that, pouring lovely products into a bath, I'm clearly just trying to make excuses. Anyway, lets just get onto what I like using ...

New Year, New Stationery ♡

Hey Guys,

I don't know about you, but I love stationery, it was the only thing that got me excited for school to start. The weekend before school started for the new year, we all would go to the high street and my sister and I would be given free reign in every stationary department of each store lol. The main two shops we loved were Wilkinsons and Poundland, and we'd pretty much shop until we had a double of everything to make sure we didn't argue when we got home. Post it notes, Bic Pens, notebooks, you name it, I had it in that basket! And, not much has changed since then, I did the same when I started a new year of university and now that I've finished, I thought lets start using stationary from the beginning of an actual year. So I thought I'd do just that, and share it all in a post ...

I don't own any mason jar glasses, which is what they usually are in so I instead, I opted for the shake I found in a Champagne Glass.

The Sunday Outfit ♡

Hey Guys,

I know, I know, my blogging schedule is totally out of whack, but I'm slowly getting out of the Christmas/ New Years phase and reality is sinking in. Today, I thought I'd do something a little different, an Outfit Post! I remember, I used to love doing these but I stopped because I kinda just forgot about them and life took over but I kinda wanted to do one, so I did! My friends and I went back to Chelsea, and then grabbed a bite to eat. So with two friends by my side, and a beautiful location, how could I not take a few outfit pictures. This is a pretty short post but I have to say, taking these pics was so out of my comfort zone, I was so awkward and shy lol, so I commend those who do it more frequently. Its the people staring that does me haha ...
