New Too Faced Store at Bluewater!

On Wednesday, I headed up to my local shopping centre, Bluewater, to visit the new Too Faced store. I can be found at Bluewater embarrassingly often - so how exciting was it that one of my favourite brands was going to have a store locally?!

September Favourites

So this post is coming a little late, because I've been having my room decorated so I've not had anywhere to actually take any photos. But without any further ado, let's chat about my September beauty favourites.

A Look at the New Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collection | & The Photoshoot it Inspired

Hello! I'm back again, to show off these beauties I picked up in my latest haul. Charlotte Tilbury has recently expanded her Pillow Talk collection. It of course needs no introduction, the original Pillow Talk Lip Cheat and younger sister Pillow Talk Lipstick are absolute icons.

Finding out who I am thanks to Living DNA

I recently sent off a swab of my DNA to LivingDNA for them to analyse it and tell me about my ancestry. Having a DNA test is something I've wanted to do for a long time, so I'm really excited to share the results!

August Beauty Favourites

It's September! Which means it's close to my 22nd Birthday (on the 8th September), nearly time to go back to Uni, and I can practically smell the crisp Autumnal days! But right now, I'm here to share my August beauty favourites.

The Body Shop Banana Haircare Range Review

The banana haircare range from The Body Shop are my latest hair related purchases. As I mentioned in this recent post, I've been trying to take looking after my hair more seriously and not just using whatever shampoo is on offer in Tesco!

NEW Benefit Hello Happy Foundation Review

So this foundation may not be the newest launch - although, to be fair, in the beauty industry the new launches just don't seem to stop. I actually bought this the day it came out, but I've only just got round to actually writing up my thoughts.

My Current Wish List (Birthday List!)

It's nearly my birthday! On the 8th September I'll turn 22 years old, which is like, proper adulthood. So, in true adult fashion, I've made myself a birthday list (adults do still make birthday lists, right?!)

Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights | Swatches & Review

Happy Monday (or whatever day it is you're reading this)! If your week needs a little sparkle, well have I got the eyeshadow for you

Five Things I Got Up To in Edinburgh

My other half Sam and I went up to Edinburgh for 5 days last week, for his sisters wedding. We were also excited to explore the city! Here's what we got up to.

July Favourites

Over a week into August and I'm only just posting my July beauty favourites! This is honestly unheard of for me, but you can read why I've been so crap at blogging if you're curious as to why.

Why I've been so crap at blogging lately

Ever since I started this blog 2 years ago, the first post of a new month is always my monthly favourites. Straying from this habit is giving me a bit of a twitch, but given the title of this post, it seems kind of apt - so I'm just going to roll with it.

This is SO exciting! I've been working on this giveaway for a long time, building up my prize bundle and hand picking the best of the best in beauty that I've reviewed over the past few months! Enjoy, and good luck!

Haircare Must-Haves

Listen, hair isn't my domain. Never has been, never will be. I don't really know that much about hair care and I will never be that person that spends more than a few pounds on shampoo. But, nonetheless, I have been making a concerted effort lately to look after my hair.

I got HD Brows & a Lash Lift

Just dropping in to say hi, and to let you know that I recently got HD brows and a LVL Lash Lift. This is just a quick post because I was so impressed with the results and wanted to share them here.

Product Empties | May/June

So firstly, sorry for the blurry images - my laptop broke and I had to transfer these from my desktop to my laptop once it was repaired, and the transfer butchered the quality for some reason. Secondly, let's take a look at what I've used up over the past couple of months!

June Favourites

 I can't believe how I've abandoned the blog for so long! I've got so many ideas but I've majorly overworked myself when it comes to photography.

What's New From Hourglass? | Review

Hourglass is pretty up there in terms of luxury brands, isn't it? With (by and large) impeccable formulas and price tags to boot (we're talking £50+ primers), I know that when I put Hourglass make up on my face, it is akin to bringing out the big guns.

My Spring/Summer Fragrance Wish List*

New seasons often feels akin to a sort of fresh start to some people. As the weather changes, your wardrobe might get changed up; your skincare routine might be over hauled; and your fragrance collection might need a new addition or two.

My Summer Holiday Make Up Bag

Following on from my Beauty Travel Essentials - where I talked all things skincare, haircare and body care for Summer - let's take a peek into my Summer holiday make up bag!

New Things from Charlotte Tilbury! | A HAUL

My plan was for June to be my month of blogging, but it feels like the universe is against me. My laptop has hit the dust (R.I.P), but hopefully it should be fixed tomorrow. This haul is actually from a little while ago now, but hey - better late than never.

Beauty Travel Essentials | + Summer Giveaway

It's that time of year again where those of us who are lucky enough to be able to get away for a week or two, to enjoy the summer heat and sunshine away from reality - preferably by a pool - start to get excited about it, and start to pack all the essentials. 

Tuesday, 5 June 2018

What's New From Omorovicza?

Without a doubt, my favourites skincare brand has to be Omorovicza. I first discovered their products back in January 2017, and have been pretty much obsessed ever since. Having gone through countless Deep Cleansing Masks and becoming a fully fledged Refining Facial Polisher addict, I couldn't wait to get my mitts on their latest launches.

May Favourites

May: Exam season, heat waves, flash floods; and a hint of make up, skincare and hair care! Here's what I've been loving lately:

My Favourite Base for Flawless, Glowing Skin

My favourite skin make up is a base that looks flawless and glowing, but whilst also still looking like skin - not like make up. My current favourite way to achieve this, is this pair from Armani.

Photo Shoot: Poppy

This was a very spontaneous photo shoot after I had a client cancel. I was already in the mood to take photographs so I asked a new model, Poppy, if she was up for some photographs.

NEW Maybelline Dream Matte Blush Review

 I'm hating this short, quick style blog post; where I post some pictures of a product I've been using lately, post pictures of swatches and quickly type up some thoughts. I much prefer being thorough.

Estee Lauder Skincare Set Giveaway

I'm running a little giveaway over on my social media, so I thought I'd let you know about it over on the blog, too. 

Friday, 18 May 2018

I bought THREE Chanel Highlighters (Yes, I'm crazy)

Okay, don't judge me. I had been eyeing this beauties up for ages, swatching them every time I go in store and practically dribbling over them online.

Would you like a free eyebrow shaping?

In a beauty box I bought recently, I received this voucher for a free eyebrow shaping treatment worth £18. But I don't live near any of the locations that they do it, so I'd like to give it to one of my readers.

Vichy Dermablend Colour Correctors Review

 I love a good bit of colour correcting, it's a great technique to have in your arsenal if you like a really flawless, polished look, and don't mind adding in the extra step or two to get there.

April Favourites

Putting my blog second place is making me really sad! But I am back with another Monthly Favourites, and it's a big one.

What's New from YSL? | Haul & Review

There's lots of luxury make up brands, and I think only up until the past couple of years, YSL beauty wasn't quite as 'up there' in terms of quality and choice as other really luxury brands like Chanel or Guerlain.

Photo Shoot: Purple Flowers

Spring has finally sprung!....right into Summer. Honestly I'm not happy about it. It was 33 degrees yesterday, which I wouldn't mind in July or August, but I'm not prepared for it right now.

At-Home IPL Hair Removal: Smoothskin Bare Review | + GIVEAWAY

Winter transitioning to Spring generally means the rude awakening that it's leg shaving season. You haven't bothered to keep up with the hair removal since mid October and you've mutated into a Wookie. If only there was a way to avoid these things...

NEW Cover FX Power Play Foundation REVIEW

I have been a long time fan of Cover FX's Custom Cover Drops and their Cover Click, so when I saw they were launching a new complexion product - Power Play Foundation* - I knew I had to try it.

Miracle Product: Aquis Hair Towel

This is the first post in a new series on the blog called Miracle Product. In these posts, I will be singling out a particular product which has instantly and dramatically improved my life in some way. Without further ado, let's chat about a towel.

What the fuck is a toxic friend anyway?

A phrase that seems to have grown popular lately that doesn't really sit well with me is "toxic friend". Whilst my reaction is scratching my head in confusion, it seems to resonate with a lot of people, but I personally think it's a harmful and counterproductive way of dealing with friendships that have turned sour.

NEW Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter Review

I'm finally back with another post! I've had so much planned, even around uni work, but then a nasty  chest infection got in the way. Moving swiftly on, today I'm talking about the new Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

NEW #PixiPretties Collaboration Collection

Pixi have recently collaborated with three content creators to bring out a collection of stunning products. There's enough here to keep you glowing and blushing from dawn to dusk!

Green Beauty Haul

We're all becoming a lot more conscious of our environment and the way our lifestyle impacts upon it lately, aren't we? When I'm shopping for beauty products, it's definitely a bonus if a product is vegan, cruelty free, zero waste or made from recycled materials, etc.

Ultimate Homeware & Accessories Wish List

So this little homeware and accessories wish list that I've put together is like every bloggers wet dream: blush pink, gold, acrylic storage? GIMME!

March Favourites

It is I, back for another monthly favourites! March seems to have come and gone so quick, especially because I was barely at uni because of the strikes, and now April is full steam ahead with deadlines!

Product Empties February - March

I have so many beauty products that it's difficult for me to use that many up to the very last drop. The true test of how much I enjoy something is if I'm able to do that - because it has so much competition!

Support an Independent Beauty Brand

Let's talk about two of my passions: supporting independent businesses, and beauty.

Good Beauty Habits to Get Into

I'm all about the extra steps in a beauty routine. I'm really not a slap dash, get-up-and-go kind of gal. I'm more than happy to spend time on my beauty routine, in fact, I enjoy it - having a routine is therapeutic.   Here's some of the beauty habits I've gotten into that are small changes to my daily life, but have quite a big impact.

Same eye make up, two eye colours

I love make up; I love playing with colour - I really do! I love to create different looks with eyeshadow, blush and a bit of lipstick. But, for a bit of change of pace, I've collaborated with Feel Good Contacts to try changing my eye colour.
