New Home | Pinterest Kitchen Ideas!

Hello!


If you follow my blog then you'll know that I've recently brought a house and am currently in the process of decorating and basically just making it a home.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a little "idea board" of samples of what I'd like my living room to look like and since then I've nearly finished it (apart from a few little bits) so it's on to the next room!

Once again, all the pictures are from Pinterest and I own nothing!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review!

Hello!

A couple of weeks ago I was kindly send a mini travel size version of Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara in my latest Glossybox and being super excited was an understatement. 

I've read so many good reviews when it first came out that I was a little tempted to go and buy me a tube but I was always so put off when it came to the price. Surely I'm not the only one who thinks £19 for a mascara is a little steep?

Nevertheless, Glossybox treated me with this mini version and it was the perfect time to test it out!

Now I've tried many mascaras in my 26 years and I'd like to think that I know which ones work for my flat and boring lashes and I've always believed that you don't need to spend lots on getting good results.

That was before I tried Better Than Sex. Even after a few strokes I could see a massive difference to the volume of my lashes. When I was finished applying the rest of my eye make-up I couldn't believe how amazing it had made my lashes look. There was no clumping so any horrible "spider legs", all my lashes were perfectly fanned out and had so much volume I couldn't wear my glasses as I could feel them touching the lens when I blinked.

The best thing about it all was that it lasted throughout the night without leaving me with the dreaded panda eyes and was super easy to take off at the end of the night. All in all, I'm not sure what more you need from a mascara and although I said above that £19 was a lot for a mascara, I probably would be willing to make an exception for Better Than Sex. You can check the full size bottle out here on the Debenhams website!

Red Edition | Glossybox September 2016

Hello!


It's that time of the month again! Glossybox time!

All my recent post has been solicitors letters or bills from the water company. Not very exciting. So when my Glossybox appeared on Saturday morning it was a lovely change!

Now I'd seen a few sneak previews of the box and I knew that it would be a special collab box but nothing had prepared me for the gorgeous red box inside. *insert heart eye emoji*

Inside this month's box


Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask | £7.99
A new brand for me and I have to be honest but I'm a little hesitant about using it. I don't distrust the brand but I suffer with oily skin and this face masks promise of 120 hours of hydration scares me a little. I will definitely keep it though for the upcoming Winter months as my face does normally dry out a little then!

Radial Smokey Eye Pencil | £17
You can't beat a good eye pencil and although I do probably have enough to last me a lifetime - you can never really have too much! I'm not the best at smokey eyes (I also looked like I've been punched in the face) but I'm always up for giving it an attempt.

The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm | £12
Antioxidant lip balm is definitely something I've ever thought I'd need in my life but after giving it a quick test when opening my box, I have now seen the error in my ways!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara | £19
I cannot explain how excited I am to receive this! I've read so many good reviews about how amazing it leaves your lashes and although it's a mini travel size, I now have it for myself! Watch this space for a review! 

Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat | £7.99
I have to admit that I've hardly painted my nails in the past 2 weeks or so - I just simply cannot be bothered! After a few days of doing them they get scratched so I never see the point. Having this new protective top coat though might make them last a bit longer so I'm looking forward to giving it a go!

The Body Shop Sample
Two face masks in one box? 

& MUA Palette
If you read last month's Glossybox review then you'll remember that they actually sent me the wrong MUA palette so this month they included the right palette. The palette I received last month was gorgeous and I was happy enough with that but thanks Glossybox for being a babe.
