Superfood For Your Nails? // Nails Inc Nail Kale Base Coat + Mayfair Lane Nail Varnish

BEAUTY

Now I may be a little bit of a nail varnish hoarder (I have far too many for my own good!) but this is one new nail trend I'd never really paid much attention to up until now. I received this small but mighty duo for Christmas and after trying them out I have to say I'm pretty impressed. 


22 December 2015

Christmas Yankee Candles // Winter Glow + Cosy By The Fire

LIFESTYLE

I can't believe it's only three days until Christmas - this past month has just gone too quick! Something I've been really loving is burning lots of Christmassy scented candles to get me into the spirit of things, with some of my favourites coming in the form of the ever popular Yankee Candle.


19 December 2015

My Lush Christmas Picks...

BEAUTY

I've been meaning to write about all the bits I got from Lush's Christmas range for quite a while, but with less than a week to go until Christmas day itself I thought this was the perfect time, especially for any of you last minute gift buyers! I always love Lush's limited edition collections and none is more exciting than their vast array of Christmas goodies.


6 December 2015

TK Maxx Bargains // Stila

BEAUTY

Believe it or not I've actually been pretty good lately when it comes to buying make-up for myself, but when I popped in to my local TK Maxx I couldn't resist getting a few Stila bits which were a little bit of a beauty bargain!


3 December 2015

Early Christmas Present // The White Company

LIFESTYLE

I love the White Company so when I saw they were doing 20% off I just had to treat myself to a few little things...



23 November 2015

H&M Beauty // Pure Velvet Cream Blusher - Sunny Peach

BEAUTY

H&M is somewhere I've never really considered before when thinking about beauty items - I've definitely always been a Topshop girl when I'm on the lookout for affordable makeup, but when I saw  the newly revamped beauty range I just knew I had to get something!



22 November 2015

A Lush Trio Of Pink // The Comforter, Rose Jam + Snow Fairy

BEAUTY

As you may have noticed by now, I'm a little bit of a Lush fan at heart, so I get really excited at this time of year for all the amazing products that make up the mahoosive Christmas range they bring out! I'm going to talk a lot more about some of my favourite christmassy choices (be prepared for a ton of  talking about bath bombs) in another blog post, but I couldn't resist showing you a couple of cult classic shower gel favourites as well as a rather lovely gift.


21 November 2015

Skincare Focus // Aesop Facial Exfoliant Paste, Camelia Nut Cream + Parsley Seed Hydrator

BEAUTY

Ever since trying my first Aesop product last year, I've really been loving the brand and have built up quite the little collection - all of which are great products and really work for me. I've mentioned a couple before but I thought I'd do a quick round up of what they all do and why I love them!


9 November 2015

New In At Lush // Big Bang Bubble Bar + Razzle Dazzle Bath Oil

BEAUTY

The temptation is too great in Lush at the moment - they seem to have new goodies in store every day! I saw both of these beauties at the Oxford Street Store but for some reason I didn't get either of them at the time so I'm really glad they've been introduced in all of the Lush stores.



5 November 2015

Glamour Magazine Freebies // Clinique Cherry Pop + Nude Pop

BEAUTY

I've been intrigued by the Clinique Pop Lip Colour & Primer lipsticks for such a long time but never quite got round to getting any, so when I saw these on offer with the November issue of Glamour Magazine I just had to get my hands on both shades!



27 October 2015

A Quick + Easy Eye-Look // Nars Pro Prime + Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eye-Stick

BEAUTY

I went on holiday a little while back to Barcelona and whilst I was there I couldn't resist a trip to Sephora. I actually surprised myself a little and was very restrained (shower gel dropping incidents aside... clumsy as always!), only purchasing a Marc Jacobs Eye-Stick and a couple of face masks (blog post to come on these!). I also recently purchased a new eye-primer from Nars to replace my trusty old Urban Decay one which recently ran out, and I have to say I'm really loving the two together for a quick and easy eye combo.



14 October 2015

Lush Halloween // Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar + Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb

BEAUTY

This time of year is my absolute favourite - for some reason everything feels so cosy in Autumn and it's just the perfect time to light candles, have a bath, get a takeaway and snuggle up in front of the telly! It's also the exciting time of year that Lush release their limited edition Halloween and Christmas ranges (I may have had a little splurge but I'll talk about the Christmas bits in another post).


30 September 2015

Zoella Beauty // Body Scrub + Bath Soak/ Shower Cream

BEAUTY

I've been meaning to write a post on these two Zoella Beauty products for such a long time - I've been using them for quite a while and they're such a good combo! As any of you who regularly read my blog will know, I'm a total sucker for buying cute bath time treats and when I saw these in Superdrug I just loved everything about them.


29 September 2015

L'Occitane Treats // Verbena Soap + Eau De Toilette

BEAUTY

My mom and I both really love everything about the L'Occitane Verbena range and when I saw how cute the mini perfume looked I just had to get it for her along with a re-purchase of the best soap going!




28 September 2015

The Perfect No-Fuss Drugstore Base // Real Techniques, Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation + Concealer

BEAUTY

Now I'm a little bit of a foundation junkie so when I saw that boots was doing any two Rimmel items for £10 I couldn't resist picking up this matching foundation and concealer duo. I initially just needed a new concealer (they didn't have my shade in my holy grail 17 stay time concealer waa!) but boy am I glad I picked up both as they just work so well together.


27 September 2015

A Sunday Pamper // Lush Fizzbanger + Popcorn Lip Scrub, Aesop Body Balm + REN

BEAUTY

Don't you just love the feeling you get when you've spent a whole day being really organised and then get to relax with everything done? I'm feeling like that today and I've just had a Sunday pamper session before roast dinner, yaay! I've tried all four of these products before but I've never put them in a blog post bofore, so I thought I'd do just that and create a little round up for you today.


24 September 2015

Yves Saint Laurent Treats // Touche Eclat + Full Metal Eyeshadow

BEAUTY

I'd been saving up my boots points for quite some time when I got chatting with the lady on the YSL counter (she was a very good sales person!). A few swatches later and I found myself walking away with some new items in tow and significantly less boots points than I started out with.


22 September 2015

Nude Lip Treats // MAC Lipsticks - Brave + Peach Blossom

BEAUTY

Can you believe I've never owned a MAC lipstick before the purchase of these two? Me either (what a rubbish beauty blogger eh?). I had to set the record straight and I decided I was going to do so with two easy to wear, super flattering nudes. Now I know they look super similar on my photo but I promise they're completely different when you see and swatch them in person.


7 September 2015

Lush Oxford Street Goodies // Intergalactic, Rub Rub Rub + Oil On Troubled Water

BEAUTY

So I finally got to go to Lush Oxford Street and it was just as magical an experience as I'd hoped it would be! I picked up lots of beautiful goodies, some exclusive to the store and others newly released everywhere (yaaaaay!). I'll be blogging about the bits I got over a couple of posts but thought I'd share my views on these three blue beauties which were popped in my bath just the other day.


12 August 2015

Glamorous Hair // Oribe, Sacha Juan + Living Proof

BEAUTY

I have quite fine blonde highlighted hair which sometimes needs a little TLC to help get it back in prime condition! When I feel it needs to look extra silky and glamorous these are the three products I like to reach for.


11 August 2015

New Products // Lush The Experimenter Bath Bomb + The Comforter Shower Cream

BEAUTY

I've been so excited ever since all the new Lush goodies arrived in the flagship Lush Oxford Street store - unfortunately I haven't had a chance to go yet, so imagine how even more excited I was when I found out that a selection of the new products was coming to all Lush stores! I'm saving most of my shopping for when I do get to visit London, but for now I couldn't resist a couple of things I've been most excited about.



16 July 2015

Summer In A Bottle // Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi Purpose Dry Oil

BEAUTY

Every summer I reach for these two products without fail! The Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil and it's shimmery sibling are perfect for helping your limbs achieve a gorgeous glow without feeling at all greasy. This is because they are 'dry' oils meaning they absorb really quickly into the skin, leaving you with hydrated smooth skin, without any hint of grease. The smell of these is incredible too - there really is no other way to describe it other than saying 'summer in a bottle'. It's sweet but not too strong, just lingering on the skin nicely.


13 July 2015

A Pink Lip For Every Occasion // Chanel, Tom Ford, YSL + Revlon

BEAUTY

I never quite realised how much of a fan I am of pink lipsticks until I went to do a round up for this blog post! Theres quite a mixture of shades, textures, finishes and pigmentation from this bunch of beauties - definitely one to suit every mood and make-up look...


8 July 2015

Summer Citrus // Lush Brightside Bubble Bar

BEAUTY

I don't know quite how I've never tried this before. I'm a real Lush addict (as you probably know if you've ever read my blog before!) but somehow this little beauty has passed me by before now. I sort've picked it up on a whim whilst wondering aimlessly round my local Lush (an all too regular occurrence) and once I'd smelt it I couldn't put it back down.



6 July 2015

A Cooling Mist // Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water

BEAUTY

This little can of goodness has literally been my saviour over the past few days - I know lots of people are laughing at us English freaking out over the 'heatwave' but it has been really freakin hot this week!


27 June 2015

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick

BEAUTY

I love a good creamy blusher, so when I saw the newest Les Beiges collection from Chanel I just couldn't resist.


22 June 2015

Hand Therapy // L'Occitane Verveine Cooling Hand Cream Gel

BEAUTY

I've tried and tested many a L'Occitane hand cream in my time, however when I saw this one I was intrigued by the different gel-creme formula, which I thought would be perfect for summer!


Fresh Feet // Lush Stepping Stone Foot Scrub Bar

BEAUTY

This isn't really the typical product I get attracted to when I first waltz through the doorway into Lush, it's just something that doesn't jump out of me, yet now I have it I'm wondering how I never noticed it before!



21 June 2015

Skin Recovery // Healgel Intensive

BEAUTY

I sort've have a love hate relationship with this stuff! Healgel Intensive is a soothing and repairing gel which can be used anywhere on both the face and body. I like to use it on my face to make any spots or dryness heal faster, but it can also be used on burns, scars and stretch marks.


18 June 2015

Ultra Light // Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation

BEAUTY

So I've actually re-purchased this foundation twice now - that's how much I love and wear it! I can't believe I've never blogged about it before to be honest.



16 June 2015

Japanese Inspiration // Lush Sakura Bath Bomb

BEAUTY

After years of using many a Lush Bubble Bar, the humble bath bomb is making a re-appearance in my tub. Yes they do get used up a tad quicker, but how can I resist when they all smell so good? I was looking for something a bit more fresh and citrussy compared to what I usually go for (sweet and floral) and the Sakura Bath Bomb fits the bill perfectly!



9 June 2015

Three In One // Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder

BEAUTY

I love a good multi-use product and this one well and truly fits the bill! From one of my favourite haircare brands, the Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder is a dry shampoo, style extender and volumiser all in one, packaged into a pretty, pearlescent pink shaker bottle.


1 June 2015

Cleansing & Softening // Lush Honey Bee Bath Bomb

BEAUTY

When I'm feeling a little stressed there's nothing better than a relaxing and calming bath to recharge yourself and feel more motivated again - especially during exam period! This Lush Honey Bee Bath Bomb is perfect for when you want a lovely long soak (my preference is to watch TV whilst I'm in there, so it can get pretty long!).


25 May 2015

Quick Sticks // Chanel Fresh Effect Stylo Eyeshadow + By Terry Ombre Blackstar

BEAUTY

I'm really loving quick, simple eyeshadow looks at the moment and these creamy shadow sticks from Chanel & By Terry are perfect for achieving it!


24 May 2015

Time For A Detox // Roques O'neil Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts

LIFESTYLE

After having a pretty heavy couple of nights this weekend I'm feeling really glad to be home and running a bath with these gorgeous Roques O'neil Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts dissolved in. You simply sprinkle a small handful in the bath and within a few minutes they dissolve, leaving a calming herbal smell behind. I was really curious about these and the calming effects advertised and I have to say I'm not disappointed.


19 May 2015

Five Years Of Topshop Beauty // Nail Polish - Green Room

BEAUTY

As some of you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I have a little bit of a penchant for Nail Polish - no colour is off limits for me! I've always loved Topshop nail polishes right from the get go, and I'd been lusting after this particular colour for a good long while, yet for some reason had never quite got round to buying it.


18 May 2015

Minty Fresh // Lush Mask Of Magnaminty Fresh Face + Body Mask

BEAUTY

I've been wanting to try one of Lush's famous face masks for such a long time, but the one thing that's been putting me off is the idea of storing them in the fridge and having to use them up so quick. I was a little worried that I would simply forget about it and be wasting my money. However, I didn't realise - the Mask of Magnaminty is one of Lush's self-preserving masks, meaning it has a longer shelf-life and can be stored at room temperature - win!


17 May 2015

Battle Of The Brows // Anastasia Brow Wiz vs. Soap & Glory Archery

BEAUTY

My first purchase out of these two was the Anastasia Brow Wiz in the shade 'Ash Blonde', then when I saw the Soap & Glory Archery pencil I just had to see if there was any difference between the two, as they just look sooo similar!


16 May 2015

Feeling Fresh // Lush Rose Jam Bubbleroon

BEAUTY

My obsession with everything Lush is very much continuing…whoops. I'm in love with the smell of this little beauty, plus it matches the smell of my current favourite shampoo - the Lush Jason And The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar which I reviewed here.



15 May 2015

They've Done It Again // Free L'Occitane En Provence Mini Gift Set

BEAUTY

I'm so excited I found out about this amazing offer from L'Occitane! Just follow this link and fill out your details, choose the L'Occitane store you want to pick your gift up from (it has to be a stand-alone store) and go get it! It's so simple and completely free. It all comes beautifully packaged in a little yellow box which contains a 25g Verbena leaf soap, a 30ml Verbena shower gel, a 30ml Verbena body lotion, a 10ml Shea Butter foot cream and a 10ml Cherry Blossom hand cream.



12 May 2015

Vitamin Fix // Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

BEAUTY

I've heard so many good things about this cleanser and I had some points that needed using up on my Space NK N.dulge card, so I indulged in a little treat purchase the other day!


9 May 2015

A Beauty Bargain // Original Astral Cream

BEAUTY

This is a rather surprising new beauty favourite for me - the classic Astral Cream Face and Body Moisturiser - it may be cheap and cheerful but it gets the job done extremely well!


6 May 2015

Rosy Skin // RMK Cleansing Balm

BEAUTY

I've been really good lately in terms of using up skincare before I buy something new, but finally last week I ran out of my cleanser and treated myself to the RMK Cleansing Balm (100g), something I've been lusting after for quite a while. I know it's had some rave reviews and I just love the pretty, pink packaging and the amazing smell of roses that this has.


4 May 2015

Radiant Skin // REN Flash Rinse, First Aid Beauty, Caudalie Beauty Elixir + Glamglow Youth Mud

BEAUTY

Last week Feel Unique had the most amazing offer on Groupon where you pay £15 to get a £25 voucher. Unfortunately this has now sold out, however when I was perusing the Feel Unique website deciding what to buy I came across this other great deal - the Radiant Skin Beauty Box. Because of the Groupon offer I only payed £25 for this (yay), however £35 is a pretty good deal (Feel Unique are also doing 10% off at the moment!).


2 May 2015

Cult Classic // Burberry Pale Barley Wet + Dry Silk Eye Shadow

BEAUTY

I've been trying to get hold of this little, seemingly ordinary eyeshadow for what seems like a ridiculously long time, but it's been sold out everywhere for months! Burberry Wet & Dry Silk Eye Shadow in the shade Pale Barley is just the perfect nude shade that I always lust after - a light brown/champagne shade with a little shimmer, it's great for every day application.


1 May 2015

Summer 2015 // Tom Ford Pink Glow Eye + Cheek Compact

BEAUTY

I can't actually believe I own this!!! The Tom Ford Eye and Cheek Compact is literally one of the most beautiful pieces of make-up I have ever owned or seen in my whole life; Tom Ford has most definitely perfected the art of creating luxurious make-up. The palette itself is seriously ma-huusive and is just so sleek looking with it's sophisticated limited edition white packaging for summer, it's gorgeous gold mirrored interior and crisp magnetic closure, but it was the products inside that really made me go for this one.


29 April 2015

Summer Ready // Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster

BEAUTY

I'm really not the sort of girl that usually bothers with fake tan, but I have to say this is the low maintenance option. I hate the effort of tanning, the risk of it looking streaky, and the horrible smell that goes with it all, so I save tanning for special occasions and make sure I go for a wash off one incase a disaster arises! The Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster however is quite a unique formula; gradual self tanning drops that you simply mix into your regular moisturiser.


25 April 2015

Stress Free // Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar

BEAUTY

I've been feeling a little bit stressed lately - I have loads of uni work to submit and not enough hours in the day to achieve everything (at least that's what it feels like!) - so I thought I'd treat myself to this baby - Lush's 'The Comforter' Bubble Bar.


22 April 2015

The Perfect Base // MAC Strobe Cream + MAC Prep + Prime

BEAUTY

I received both of these as samples when buying MAC face and body foundation (review to come on this soon!), and I have to say, using these in conjunction with each other provides a really great base for make-up.


21 April 2015

A Few Spring-time Favourites...

BEAUTY

The weather here in the UK has (strangely!) been pretty good lately - consistently warm and sunny - it most definitely feels like spring! With that thought in mind, I thought it was time for me to post something of a spring edit, with some of the products I've been using a lot at this time of year.
