Birthday Haul (Beauty)

Hellooo everyone!

As some of you may know it was my birthday earlier this month. I had a lovely day and I thought that today I would show you the beauty bits that I got! I did get a fragrance direct order as well, but that's another post...

So here's what I got :))

I love the Body Shop!! I got the Mango Showergel, Mango Body Butter, Satsuma Body Butter and Watermelon Lip Balm! They all smell so good and are amazing!

I got the Avon Clear Skin Pore Penetrating Face Mask, which I am testing, Freederm Gel (for spots), expect to see in a favourites, I love it! And a sample of the REN Gentle Cleansing Milk.

From the Natural Collection I got their duo eyeshadow in 'Frost Shimmer/ Aqua Shimmer', lipstick in 'Cranberry', Shimmer Bricks in 'Sahara Sun' and Lipgloss in 'Fondant'

Lipstick Swatch - Cranberry

Lip Gloss Swatch - Fondant
I can't wait to test all of this out and expect some reviews coming your way in the next coming months!


 Quick OOTD. Bright blue jeggings and multi coloured top :)) Sorry my head is chopped off, my tripod doesn't go any higher.
Jeggings - H &M
Top - New Look

I can't find any of this stuff online any more sorry! 

Autumn Tag


Today I thought I would do the autumn tag! I love autumn (mainly because my birthday is at the start) and I love the crunch the leaves make when they've fallen off the trees, anyone else like that? No, just me... so anyway, I'm going to be doing the autumn tag, I've seen this tag floating around various blogs and thought I'd join the crowd and do it! So here it is...

Favourite thing about autumn?
Cosy jumpers, toasting marshmallows on the fire and snuggling up on the sofa with a hot chocolate (with lots of cream, of course) and a good book!

Favourite Drink
I don't like tea or coffee and I'm not a massive hot drinker, but probably just lemonade. How very unseasonal!

Favourite Scent/ candle?

Hmmm, at the moment I'm loving this vanilla and rhubarb candle from Matalan. So cheap, but it smells soooo good!

Best Lipstick?
Tricky, I love lipsticks but tend to stick to boring pinks and corals, really summery colours. I'd probably say my MUA Power Pout in Broken Hearted is my favourite because it's a raspberry pink.

Go to moisturiser?
My Body Shop Mattifying Day Cream, it keeps my oil at bay but still provides enough hydration - perfect!

Go to colour for eyes?
I don't really wear eyeshadow that often, but probably a champagne colour.

Favourite Music to Listen to?
SUEDE!! I love their music! And... it's one week till I go and see them live!!!!!!!!!!!! OMGMGMG!

Favourite Outfit?
A collar top, with a cosy jumper over the top, skinny jeans, ankle boots and but woolly hat, scarf and gloves!

Autumn Treat?
I don't really have one, maybe more regular pamper evenings??

Favourite Place to be?
At home with my friends and family! Aww, how sweet! 

So that's the autumn tag, I hope you enjoyed this post and I tag all of you! Let me know if you do the tag :))


Hey Guys!

As you can probably tell, my blog has had a complete overhaul! It's gone completely white. I felt that the last theme was too busy and seen as today has dragged for me, I thought that today would be the perfect time to change my blog. It's practically white and is a blank canvas. 

I've been meaning to do this for a while and am glad I have!

Empties #1

My first empties! It takes me forever to finish a product so these might be few and far between. But any way, lets get on with the empties!

First things I have are the Simple Soothing Facial Toner, I got this in a gift set last Christmas and I really like it, many people think that toner isn't a necessary step in your routine, but I think that this really refreshed my face and took off any last scraps of makeup. I think I would repurchase!
Then I have Nivea Refreshingly Soft Moisturizing Cream (what a mouthful)! This was my go to moisturizer, I could use it on my face, body and hands. It's cheap as chips and such a good multi use product! I would repurchase. 

I got this for my birthday last year and I've finally finished it up. This is the Superdrug own brand Mango and Papaya Body Butter. This smelt really nice and I'm actually really surprised at how moisturized my legs felt! I'd definitely repurchase!

Batiste dry shampoo - this is my favourite scent from Batiste. I love dry shampoo and can't live without it! 
Hairspray - it's hairspray, I used it up, it was pretty good, but wouldn't specifically go out and buy it again.
Charles Worthington Shampoo - Volume and Bounce - didn't work, made my hair flatter and greasier. Wouldn't buy this again!

Review: Jumping Juniper Bar

RAVE ALERT!! I'm in love with this hair product! It's amazing, I love it and I'm going to marry it! Okay, maybe I won't marry it but seriously I love this!!

For agess I suffered with the most terrible greasy hair (gross I know), but I'd literally tried every shampoo on the market and it never worked. But this, it did! Praise the hair gods! It's a shampoo bar which basically works like a bar of soap. You lather it up in your hands and then apply it to your head and then rinse off as normal.

But seriously, this leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean, but not dry. It makes my hair look shiny (but good shiny, not greasy shiny). For that I love it!! 

I think I'm going to continue to repurchase because it has made such a difference to my hair. I can last 2 days without dry shampoo, rather than as soon as it's dry I have to put it on to stop looking greasy!! 

It's lasted me just over 2 months and it's still the same size as when I bought it, so if you continues like this it's well worth the money!

I'm in love with this shampoo! I would deffo recommend to anybody who has suffered with the terrible greasiness! My hair is now healthy, shiny and I'm happy!!

Review: Rimmel Scandeleyes Eyeshadow Paint

Hey guys!

This is a fairly new launch from Rimmel and it is their new scandeleyes eyeshadow paints. I have the colour 005 Golden Bronze. It's such a gorgeous metallic gold colour that brings out the blue in my eyes! 

It's a unique formula, it comes in a lip gloss type packaging and has a doe foot applicator. It feels really cooling when you place it on the eyelid and once it sets, this ain't budging for nobody! It's a great base for eyeshadow or you can wear it alone. I'm not a big fan of eyeshadow so I tend to the latter option.

But I really do like it! It just looks really cool, it's a nice colour and it doesn't crease on me! Maybe after about 9 hours, but y'know, that's good enough for me!

Review: Collection Cream Puff


Sorry it's been a while! I had a lovely birthday and today I am going out with my friends, I'll be doing a birthday haul post soon, so keep checking back for that!

On to the actual post!

Ok, stop the press, call the news team! I think I have found one of my all time favourite lip products and for an amazingly cheap £2.99!!! Ok,I love this! It's by Collection (formally collection 2000). It's a really nice corally, pink colour. It smells like vanilla but it's not overpowering.

As you apply this to your lips it goes on really smoothly, it's incredibly pigmented. It goes onto your lips quite glossy but then it goes and you're left with a matte lip. This stays put for a good few hours and does last through eating a drinking. Yay! Something I always look for!

I seriously love this! I could rave about this loads more but, I highly recommend that you try them! For a bargain price of £2.99 they are cheap as chips. I'm need to get more shades!!
