Happy 5th Birthday | Glossybox August 2016

31 August 2016

Hello!

It's quite nice having my birthday in the same month as Glossybox as the boxes always seem a little more special. And I like to think that it's because of my birthday. Weird? Oh well!

Unfortunately I wasn't in when this months box was delivered so I had to wait nearly a week before I could get it so that's why this post is a little late!

Rae Feather Mini Mongram Pochette | £20
How adorable is this little pouch? Not it's worth £20 especially when you consider you could buy a whole bag from Primark for less but it's super cute and I'll definitely get some use out of it!

MUA Eyeshadow Palette | £4
I actually got an email from Glossybox saying that I was sent the wrong palette (You were able to choose which one you wanted last month) so I'm a little disappointed but there's still some gorgeous colours in this palette so it's not all bad!

Mudmasky Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask | £53
£53 for a face mask? Is it just me or would you expect literal miracles for that price?!

Spa To You Deep Pore Facial Cleansing Brush | £6.99
Cleansing brushes have become really popular in the beauty world but I've never really brought into it. Needless to say I'm really excited to give it a go and see what all the fuss is about!

Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion | £20
I have to admit that the name did make me giggle a little. Yes, I'm a child. Luckily for me though I've recently run out of my body lotion so I look forward to giving this a go and maybe purchasing the full size!

L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Purity Mask Review

29 August 2016

Hello!


If you haven't heard about the new L'Oreal clay face masks, where have you been? I don't think I can go on any social media website without seeing at least two posts about them! Well a couple of weeks ago I made a naughty purchase to Boots and I thought I would check them out and see what all the fuss is about! 

Now I have mentioned several times in the past that I suffer with oily skin and that I sometimes find it difficult to find that perfect skincare product. So deciding which clay mask to buy for myself was a little difficult until I saw the word "mattifies" in the description for the Purity mask so of course, I went with that one!

If you've seen any of the posts from other bloggers/celebrities you'll notice that it's quite common to buy all three variations and use them all for separate areas of you face. This is great but for £7.99 each, it's got to work for me for to fork out for all three!

Obviously I only have the purity mask and I use it on my T-zone and on my chin which are normally the most "oiliest" areas and even after a couple of uses I can definitely feel my skin feeling fresher and just generally cleaner. It helps keep my shine away and I can normally get through a whole day without re-applying powder.

Overall I'm in love and I am seriously debating going and buying the remaining two masks. You can check them out on the Boots website where they're currently £5 each!

Happy 15th Birthday Rimmel x Kate Moss! | Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in My Nude

26 August 2016

Hello!


Over a year ago now I fell in love with the Rimmel nude lipstick collection by Kate Moss, specifically shade 45, and even went as far as buying a handful more of the same colour just so I could never run out! 

Well to celebrate 15 years of Rimmel x Kate Moss, they've decided to team up once again and bring out another loads of amazing products, including 5 unseen shades of the Lasting Finish Lipstick! Since I was so in love with my other Lasting Finish Lipstick, it only made sense to buy myself one!

When it comes to lipsticks for a daily basis aka for work, nude is the way forward. I like wearing something that's close to my natural lip colour as that's where I feel more comfortable so after what felt like ages of deciding, I went with the shade My Nude.

I'm not sure shade I would pick if it was between this one and shade 45 from the nude collection and it doesn't really help that they're quite similar. Either way My Nude is gorgeous and it still has the amazing moisturising formula like the previous Kate collection.

You can check out the other 4 shades in the 15th Birthday range here where they're currently on a buy one get one half price deal. Perfect excuse to buy them all!

Life | Things I Can't Live Without!

24 August 2016

Hello!


As everyone can probably agree, there are just some things in our lives that we cannot live without. I've saw a few other bloggers writing a list of these things and I could help but create my own little list.

1. My Cat

I have no problem admitting that I am a crazy cat lady and that I'd be absolutely gutted if I didn't have her in my life. She's been really poorly lately and had to have several overnight stays, blood tests and even one surgery and she still manages to be her usual crazy self. I love her to bits!

2. My Phone

It's pretty sad to admit this but I think I would be lost if it wasn't for my phone. There's so many times throughout the day when I'll just have a flick through Instagram or read all the latest goss on my Facebook and I just don't know what I'd do if that wasn't available to me. I'd probably get a lot more done but I'd be really bored!

3. My Car

citroen ds3

I do not know how I survived before without my car, like, how did I get anywhere?! I was also a little anxious about riding on the bus when I was a teenager as I always scared of getting on the wrong one and ending up miles from home so when I finally passed my test I felt more confident going out.

I'd also not had the best past history when it comes to cars (as you can see here) but I'm hoping that my new Citroen DS3 will bring me better luck!

4. My Family

I know that I definitely don't see my family as much as I should and I would never forgive myself if I ever lost anybody. I've been through a lot in the past 12 months and I don't know how I would have got through it all without them by my side and for that I will always be grateful.

5. Wine

Because wine not.

6. My Blog

My blog has become a bit of a release for me and although I'm not the most popular of them all, I still love to keep it going. Even if no-one reads it

7. Music


ipod

I cannot go anywhere without my iPod and I actually feel lost when I leave home without it. I wouldn't say I have a specific music style and I do tend to listen to a bit of everything from Avenged Sevenfold to Disney. It really does vary! P.S. how cute is my little toy from Mcdonalds? I call him Pippin.

Coconut Lane | My New Purchases!

22 August 2016

Hello!

One of my favourite places to shop right now is Coconut Lane. I did buy their "Reach for the Stars" necklace at the end of last year and I just fell in love with the store and everything they sell. It's took me a while but I've finally made my second purchase and I think I'm in love with it even more than my first!

Since my last purchase I've decorated my room and have been on the lookout for something to help "spice up" my lonely looking bed. Thanks to Coconut Lane though, I found the perfect solution! Enter my Pancakes & Prosecco In Bed pillow! Obviously it's gorgeous and it suits my decor so much. Tempted to buy more to have in my living room.

My second purchase is this gorgeous rose gold link bracelet. I made this order a couple of weeks ago and since the parcel arrived, I have not taken the bracelet off (apart from showering and sleeping).
