My skin is odd, one minute it's dry and the next it's oily. I can't win! I decided to invest in a new moisturiser as I found my old one was not doing the best of jobs. I had spotted the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré a few times but had never purchased it. There's something about french skin care that really draws me in, I don't know what it is!

So, I have a love-hate relationship with my bottom lashes. I love applying mascara to them, but I hate how clunky many of the mascaras are. I decided to go on the hunt for a mascara with a smaller wand to make application that little bit easier. I found that NYX offered a Skinny Mascara and so the deal was settled after falling in love with their foundation.

Okay, I'm Guilty - I purchased a brush that was not made by Real Techniques. I feel like I have betrayed Sam and Nic, I have sworn by their brushes for years. I decided to give the Sigma brushes a whirl, I had heard so much about them on YouTube. I thought that if I was about to spend £16 on a brush, it would have to be one that I used daily. I chose to go for the Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush as I think foundation is the product I use and value the most.

Okay, so I am so excited to write this review. I have been on the search for the perfect foundation - as we all are - and I think I have found it. I have been watching and reading NYX reviews for years and have longed to try their products, when I saw Feel Unique started stocking the brand, I ordered straight away.

I know it's autumn, but baby blue is still one of my go to nail colours. I guess you could say that cold weather is coming and cold means blue so...there's definitely a link even though it says summer on the bottle. Shhhh. I don't think I have tried the Maybelline Super Stay nail colours before, I only really think of Barry M when it comes to it. I saw this colour and thought it would be a lovely addition to my collection!

Looking back at the first few posts on this blog makes me proud of how far it has come. From my writing style to photography skills, I can see how much I have grown over the years. When it comes to taking photos for your blog, everyone has their own style. However, there are a few things that everyone can do behind the scenes to make photographing products that little bit easier. Just for reference I use a Canon 600D to take my photos and soft boxes if I decide to photograph later on in the day when there is no natural light. The photos in this post are taken in natural light which I find always looks the best! So without further ado, here are my top 5 tips for blogging photography. 


Before I do anything, I set up the scene for my photographs. I gather any props I need and lay everything out so that when I am taking photographs it's just a matter of placing them accordingly. I usually have a very minimal look to my photographs so I have the usual props such as flowers, a candle and maybe an ornament. My photos are predominantly white as my room is that colour - I love the minimalist look. No matter what your style of photo, it makes it so much easier to get your scene ready before you begin photographing. 


These little beauties are so cheap - I purchased mine from Home Bargains. Having some form of lens wipes on hand is so important, especially when you are working with and photographing makeup. I always give my lens a wipe before using my camera whilst constantly checking throughout the shoot. There is nothing worse than cleaning everything up and popping your SD Card into the laptop, only to find out theres a massive smudge in every picture.


Being a beauty blogger, I know the struggle of makeup stains and smudges. We have to photograph the products as well as the swatches and this can be a nightmare at times. Even when you don't realise - a product can leave marks anywhere. I always keep some antibacterial wipes on hand to wipe down any surfaces I am using as well as any products. I like my products to look clean in my photos so these babies are a necessity. 


Before I photograph anything I like to get my products together in one place. I don't want to be running back and forth or forget something, so this is the best way to avoid that. I often set my products out in an orderly way so that I can get photos taken quickly and efficiently. It's so annoying when you think you are finished and start editing, only to remember you have forgotten a vital product. This means you can keep your blog up to date with everything you want to write about too. 


If you are photographing products, it's important that they are well lit so that the product can bee seen. Although I do own soft boxes - I much prefer taking photos during the morning in natural light. I always photograph my products near a window to get a lovely bright clear finish to my photos. I can't deal with dark photos - it's just not my style and so that means making lighting a priority. 

So that's my top 5 blogging photography tips! I will be writing my next 5 tips on cameras and editing so keep looking out for that! Obviously my tips are personal and won't be to everyones tastes, however, I feel they are important things that I have learnt from watching my blog grow over the years! Let me know if you have any tips for photography! I would love to learn some more from other peoples experiences!

I've never taken part in the MAC hype - I feel like there may be something wrong with me! I don't have millions of MAC lipsticks and I have never felt the need to try their products out. I think this is because I purchased a foundation when I was in high school and expected it to be amazing, however, it was no more impressive than my highstreet alternative. 

I recently felt the MAC urge, I felt like I wanted to embrace MAC and maybe my mind would be changed as I am now older. I needed a new foundation and I wanted something with a light coverage and long lasting power. I decided it was time to try MAC. After a lot of research I decided to go for the Face and Body foundation - the unsung hero of their foundations. I read about the amount of makeup artists that see this foundation as an essential in their kit and how it has a beautiful dewy glow - just what I was looking for. i like that they have started to sell the product in a smaller 50ml bottle - it means I don't have to commit to their 150ml. However, if you know you love this product it is wiser to purchase the 150ml as you get more for your money. 

I was so excited when the package arrived and ran upstairs to try out this foundation. On first try I noticed that the product blended in amazingly. I had read how it looks just like skin, however, I did't realise how natural it would look. Very impressed with this. In terms of coverage it is not for those looking to conceal, I would say it is more suited to those maybe trying to balance skin or for those with already clear skin. I could not wear this foundation without a concealer as it is very sheer and it really only balances my skin tone out. The product feels lightweight on the skin and doesn't feel cakey after a long day - I like that ever after university and travelling home I didn't feel like my face was under a huge mask. I chose the shade N1 - their lightest shade. I do not think this is the right shade for me as it makes me look slightly orange, however, it is fine if I blend it slightly down my neck. I think the finish of the product is beautiful and yes it gives you a healthy glow, I really enjoyed the end look. I do however feel that I can only wear this foundation when my skin is immaculate, which is rare. I wish I had perfect skin because this foundation really is a lovely product and it looks so natural. My sister has lovely skin and it suits her so well, I guess my review only represents those with acne scarring or the odd blemish. 

In conclusion I feel impressed by the MAC Face and Body, it is a nice product with a gorgeous finish. If anything I would like to test out some other foundations they have to offer maybe with a larger shade range and also a slightly higher coverage. I hope that in the future when my skin is completely healed from scarring that I can try this product again because It has so many positive attributes!

Please let me know if you have tried this product! Also let me know if you have any recommendations for what MAC foundation I should try next!

I had tried one of these eye shadows over a year ago, and was obsessed with it. However, I lost it and never repurchased for some reason! Recently, the Color Tattoo 24hr eyeshadows have started to crop up everywhere and so I had to go out and purchase a few. 

I decided to go for three shades - a light, medium and dark shade. On first look, these shadows are absolutely gorgeous! I love the packaging, the glass pots feel very luxury and the glass allows you to see the product. When you unscrew the lid, the product looks so lovely - I couldn't bring myself to ruin the perfect swirl of product! However, I also couldn't resist the urge to use the products so it was quickly ruined!

The lightest shade I chose was 65 - Pink Gold. This shade is beautiful and is such a lovely highlight on the skin. I often find gold on my pale skin can look too over the top and this pinky gold shade is perfect for a day to day look. I think the warm tones are perfect for autumn and it makes your eyes really stand out! The medium shade I chose was 70 - Metallic Pomegranate. This shade is literally autumn in a pot. I love burgundy and purple shades so this was the perfect choice for me. It's light enough to wear all over the lid yet dark enough to use as a contour with a lighter shade. I think this is my favourite shade by far. The darkest shade I chose was 40 - Permanent Taupe. This shade is perfect for contour and it has a beautiful matte finish. I love that it works well with all of the shades I have tried it with.

The product itself is brilliant as a shadow. There is so much to love - the longitivtiy, the colour pay off and the over all finish. The product is creamy and applies to the skin so easily - it also blends well on it's on or with other shades. I really enjoy the fact that you can apply this with a brush or with your finger. These are perfect for those who find using brushes a hassle or who simply can't be bothered. The pigmentation is amazing and lasts all day - yes, ALL DAY!! They have clearly been supplied to us by the makeup gods. You only need a tiny bit of product in terms of cost and lasting power - they are the perfect investment for every day wear.

Have you tried any of these beauties? let me know! If you have any suggestions for what shades I should buy next, let me know!

I have seen marble phone cases all over the internet - in fact, everything seems to be marble at the moment! I have to admit, at first I didn't see what the fuss was about, but I have definitely been dragged into this trend. When GoCustomized contacted me to try one of their personalised phone cases, I jumped at the chance! I have long needed to replace my old broken case and this was the perfect opportunity! I was excited to choose a custom design so I headed straight to Pinterest in order to find the perfect design! Pinterest is perfect for finding inspiration and designs and I'm fussy so hate trawling through the many ready made ones on the internet!

Like I said earlier, I love marble, so I opted for a marble design. I am also a huge fan of pastels so combining the two is perfect for me! I used their website design tool to chose and position my phone case and then completed the order. There is an option to use one of their own designs or you can also upload anything from a photo to art work. You can also add text onto the cases too which would be nice if you were creating a gift for someone, you also have the option to choose a matte finish or a gloss finish. 

When the phone arrived it was packaged in a bubble wrap envelope which is nice as our postman seems to shove things through the letter box! The phone case fits the phone perfectly and gives it a sturdy feel, I also think it gives me more grip of the phone. I am happy with how the design came out, however, I would say that my design on the computer looked much more vibrant and I preferred it that way! I really like how the phone feels personalised and gives you the opportunity to get your creative juices flowing! The case looks sleek and I absolutely love it! I was previously considering doing a diy marble phone case - however, this is much more professional looking! 

With Christmas coming up, this is the perfect gift for either friends, family or yourself! Hey, you've gotta treat yourself sometimes. If you fancy designing your own iPhone case click here, and let me know what designs you go for!

Sunday, 1 November 2015


So Christmas is right around the corner, wow, where has this year gone? When a company called "I Just Love It" got in touch with me to review some of their products, I jumped at the chance. I have been wanting to create a non-beauty Christmas Gift guide for a long time now and this was the perfect opportunity. I was kindly given the opportunity to choose some items off the website to review and I am so happy with the choices I made. 

I wanted to choose a range of different products to represent different personalities and people. It an be so hard to choose gifts for everyone as people can have such different tastes. I like how I can visit one website and find such a wide range of choice and make one order, instead of millions! So without further-ado, here are the gifts I have chosen!

1. Personalised Silver Plated Vintage Teaspoon £18.99

For the tea fanatics out there such as myself, this is the perfect gift. I love cute tableware and this is lovely because you can personalise it to say whatever you want it to. I decided to go for a good old saying, however, this would be so sweet with someones name or even a special date! The vintage feel of the gift is really nice and makes me feel all fuzzy inside! 

2. Deer Wash Bag £15.99

So I was accidentally sent the stag version of this wash bag instead of the deer. However, I don't mind either way! I love the rustic feel of the colour scheme and the illustration! The size is perfect and would be a good gift for those who travel a lot or who simply have lot's of cosmetics to store! If you're in a couple, both the stag and deer versions of this wash bag would be a nice matching gift! I can fit everything I need when staying over night which is a relief, because I always take way too much!

3. Monogrammed Black Handle Mug £9.99

So if you read my blog you will know that I am OBSESSED with monochrome. My bedroom is monochrome, my clothing is usually monochrome, it's my go to style. When I saw this mug I thought it looked so sleek and simplistic, I love the font and the minimalist design. Because I hoard mugs and cups, I decided to put my mug to use as a brush holder. It looks so lovely on my desk and it keeps my brushes nice and organised! 

4. Personalised Fragrance Candle £22.99

Candles are one of my favourite gifts to both give and receive. I love candles and how they can make a room feel cosy and snug. I love the fact you can personalise this, it looks very chic and again fits in with the minimalist theme I tend to go for. Because of the simplicity, this would be ideal for either males or females and would be a lovely touch for a home. There are two candles in a pack so this is really nice if you tend to burn candles like there's no tomorrow!

5. Grow Me Be Happy Seed Kit £3.99

When I saw this seed kit it made me smile so much! I love quirky gifts like this, they are a nice change from the more traditional gifts. The packaging looks so uplifting and made me feel all positive when I saw it! I intend to use this with my younger sister as she is creative like myself. I think this is a nice gift for any age group, it's something you can watch grow and develop! Fingers crossed I remember to look after it as my mind is like a sieve. 

I loved every item I received, the quality is brilliant and the gifts look so thoughtful. When Christmas shopping, I always like to make my gifts personal to those who I am buying for as I love seeing the expression on their faces when opening. I think allow you to buy for personality and take in the relationship you share with others, rather than just opting for a generic gift. 

Let me know if you like any of the items I went for and if you would be happy if you received them!

* kindly sent my a voucher code in order to purchase these products, however, all opinions remain my own and I carefully selected products to fit my post.

On a cold winters Day last December, I walked into Lush during my yearly last minute Christmas gift shopping spree. Little did I know, the products suggested to me would be life changing staples. Lush has a brilliant reputation in the UK and from what I've read, in the USA as well. I love lush, there is something so lovely about walking into a Lush store and being surrounded by beautiful products and smells. I was suffering from such awful acne last year and had reached the point where I couldn't find a gentle yet effective cleanser to tame my skin. The lovely sales assistant recommended that I try Ultrabland, a cleanser made from almond oil, rose water, beeswax and honey. 

This cleanser really is amazing, it is a god send. At the end of the day, I softly massage the product into my skin until my makeup has melted, I then take two large cotton pads soaked in warm water and wipe away any product from my skin. I have never experienced a cleanser so effective in removing makeup and dirt, it is such a lovely experience too! I love how spa like the product is, it is so soft and gentle with the skin, leaving a lovely feel to the skin. A lot of cleansers can leave your skin feeling stripped and dry, however, this leaves your skin dewy and moisturised. The pots contain more than enough product to last you weeks, a small amount will surprise you in terms of how much makeup it removes! I love the smell of the product, it's odd, nothing like I've smelt before! The consistency is so silky and soft, it feels lovely on the skin.

I have also been loving their Eu Roma Water which is a toner. The two main ingredients are rose water (to reduce redness and calm skin) and lavender water (to balance and soften skin). I apply this product after cleansing and every morning too. I love this product as it smells amazing and leaves me skin calm and soft, as it describes. I feel so refreshed after using this and my skin doesn't feel overly dry or striped! Using the Eu Roma Water is a very relaxing experience due to the smell and application, I either spritz my face and wipe with a cotton pad, or I will spritz the cotton pad directly.

I couldn't live without these two products, they really are staples in my skincare routing. I see so many posts and YouTube videos talking about high-end expensive skincare and these two just prove how over spending is not necessary. Using both of these products has contributed to taming my acne and looking after my sensitive skin. I am happy to have found such wonder products! It makes life that little bit easier!

I'm going through a bit of a lipstick addiction at the moment, then again, doesn't everyone go into lipstick overdrive in autumn? I decided to add to my nude lipsticks as I don't have that many.  For every day lipstick, I tend to use highstreet brands and Rimmel are the perfect brand. I refuse to pay over £10 for a lip product that is used daily and bound to run out faster. 

I decided on shade 45 because it's very similar to my natural lip colour. I didn't want a nude that would wash me out or that looked too obvious. I find that when I don't wear lipstick, my lips look flat and so a near to real lip shade is perfect for no-makeup makeup days. The wear of this product is brilliant, it lasts and doesn't look awful when it starts to wear. I love the packaging, the baby pink/peach with the classic Kate signature is so pretty! I love the shade as it's so pretty, very natural and perfect for every day use! It keeps my lips moisturised which is a huge plus, none likes dry lips! The only thing that I don't really like is the smell of the lipstick, I really can't put my finger on it but It's not my favourite! I am going to purchase another shade from this range, possibly a darker brown shade for days where I make more of an effort!

Let me know if you have tried this product and also if there are any other nude shades you could recommend!

When I was 16 I started to use contraception. As I was an extremely forgetful teenager, I went for the easy option: the implant. The implant is a thin rod embedded in your upper arm which releases progesterone over 3 years. This does three main things: it prevents the ovaries releasing an egg, thickens cervical mucus and thins the womb lining. All of these things working together prevents you from becoming pregnant.

I have had acne all through my teens and when I thought about it, it severely worsened during the time I had the implant. When I say acne, I don't mean a few spots, I mean sore, irritated red blemishes all over my face. I didn't really have a day without any spots, I always had painful skin and I would sit in front of the mirror crying and feeling useless. I began to do my research and found so many different sources telling me how the implant can increase acne. I am now 20 and having become suspicious of the implant, I had it removed. My local clinic provided me with a pill to continue using contraception, specifically, they recommended Cilest as it has been shown to reduce acne.

During the first week my skin began to clear up, I couldn't believe it. I was both relieved and annoyed that I had finally found the main cause of my bad skin. Obviously I can't blame the implant for my acne, however, it definitely had a huge impact. It has been two months since my implant was removed and my skin is absolutely acne free. I literally can't thank the skin gods enough, it's so nice to wake up without sore, red skin. I think that both removing the implant and starting to take Cilest have worked together to improve my skin. I had recently had acne scar removal procedures so it's nice to have less scarring too!

If you are suffering from acne I would definitely look into small things like this. Contraception becomes such a mindless task, especially when it's in your arm. I forgot the implant was in my arm and didn't even think it could be having an effect on my skin. I understand that this may not work for everyone, but it's definitely something to consider! A lot of people think acne is due to a bad skin routine, but I can guarantee you this is not the case. I cleanse, moisturise and treat my skin morning and night, using products raved about by others. It's simply not the case of washing your face, it's deeper than that.

Let me know if you have ever experienced anything similar? I tweeted about this topic during the summer and had lot's of feedback off other bloggers!

Look at me acting like a fashion blogger! I have only ever done one post in the past about an outfit and I enjoyed it so much I thought I would have another go. I find fashion blogging to be so much harder in terms of photography as you have to set up the camera, pose for the camera and also take the photo. WHAT! I eventually got the hang of the whole thing and this is the outcome. For a first try on my own, I'm satisfied! 

I commute to university and I found the mornings were becoming uncomfortably chilly. I decided it was time to search for the perfect coat and I've found it. I was so happy to find this coat in New Look, its so comfy and warm! I love how casual it is and it literally can be thrown on top of any outfit and look good! I also appreciated the student discount which made this bad boy only £26! It's such a bargain seems as my last coat was £80+. shivers at the amount spent on clothing. Okay, £80 can get you a decent coat, I think coats are an investment and can last years if picked carefully, however, this coat is perfect and for the price I was over the moon. I like how it's such a laid back, casual style, yet it has such a smartness to it. 

I was in university when I wore this outfit so it was the everyday casual Joni Jeans (jeans owned by 99.9% of the country) and a basic Zara tee. For the shoes I chose to wear my lace ups because I am in love with them and tend to live in them nowadays. Although, I must admit I have started to feel the chill so must purchase some ankle boots ASAP. 

Let me know what you think! I hope to do some more fashion posts as they are a nice change from beauty posts!

My #LumiaVoicesTrial*

When Microsoft contacted me to trial out the Lumia 930, of course I jumped at the opportunity. I have always been an iPhone girl and never really considered anything else, so I thought this would be an interesting product to review! Within a few days I had a parcel through the door and I won't lie, I danced with excitement. Now this won't be a technical review, it will be a review from a normal everyday girl. I won't be using advanced vocabulary, I'll just be chatting about how this phone fitted into my every day life. 


I was firstly met with a very slick and modernly designed box which instantly gave me a good first impression. Opening the box I found the phone, a usb charger, plug adapter and to my surprise, a wireless charger! I immediately turned the phone on and followed the simple start up instructions on screen.


The first huge difference I found with the Lumia 930 is the layout of the home screen. I am used to a macbook and iPhone so I was not familiar of this layout! At first the transition was hard to get used to but after a while I really started to appreciate the minimalist layout, a style that I try to apply to all aspects of life. The geometric design of the square tiles really satisfied me as I love things to be in line and look tidy, I also loved the ability to change the layout with no particular effort at all. I like that the phone offers two layouts in a way, you can have the tiles, or, you can slide left and view all of your apps in a long alphabetical list! 


So let's talk camera. The camera presented within this phone is absolutely brilliant. The amount of detail picked up in the photos is like nothing I have experienced with a phone before. This said, the editing software available on the phone is also good for adding background blurring and basic edits to the highlights, shadows and tone. I found that I could take extremely clear photos and by clear I mean  you can zoom right in and the quality remains. I liked the camera options such as iso and focus, you don't usually get these advanced options on other phones. 


In terms of apps I was impressed with in built apps such as HERE Drive+ which was brilliant for directions. The calendar app is lay out in such a perfect way, I love the design of it as it's again minimalist yet still gives you all the information you need about appointments. One major app that I was oddly enthusiastic about was the alarm! For some reason the alarm tones on this phone woke me up gently and I didn't feel startled every morning! It seems odd to mention this but as a sufferer of anxiety, being woke up suddenly leaves me shaky for most of the day! 


As a blogger, I highly value social media tools such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I was able to download all of these apps on the Lumia 930, however, I do prefer them on the iPhone. The Instagram app on the Lumia is a beta version and does not allow you to use the full set of editing tools that are available on apple devices. I was not used to the layout of the twitter app and Facebook app, however, this wasn't a problem to me. Although the Instagram app was not what I was used to, I do believe it will improve in the future, as do all apps. 


Wow, so Cortana was my best friend for two weeks. In a comparison to Siri, it felt way more advanced. The flow of the speech is so impressive, it sounds like a friend on the phone. I found myself asking her to remind me to pick up certain ingredients when I reached the local shop, so when I got there I would receive a notification with my shopping list! Very impressive stuff! I also took advantage of the "Hey Cortana" tool which allows you to activate the app simply by saying those words! I like that the phone is always on call and you don't even have to touch it to use it, you could literally ask for a reminder to be made and it's done within seconds. 


I enjoyed the size of the phone, it was useful for say taking photos and watching videos. I found it hard to get used to as my iPhone is much smaller and I can easily use it one handed. I unfortunately never got used to the size as it didn't fit in my coat pocket and again could not be used by just one hand. I do prefer a smaller phone, however, that is simply down to personal taste. 


The screen of the phone feels so durable, it doesn't feel like it's about to break or smash like my iPhone!! There are multiple options for screen adjustment in terms of colour tone and brightness which is a nice added detail, I like that this phone really has thought of every little thing to make a phone your phone. 


The phone itself looks gorgeous as an accessory. At first I felt the bold choice of orange was quite a scary step, but I love it! It's different and it certainly does stand out, that's what I love about it. The phone has something very fashionable about it, the sleek finish, the materials and even the charger looks good!


Firstly, the charge on this phone is amazing it really does last all day. The charger is convenient as the pins move together on the plug to make transport easier. I absolutely love the wireless charger! It is really such a brilliant addition! It's perfect for popping on your bedside table or even your coffee table so that when you place your phone down it charges! The phone had a battery saving mode so that if the battery happened to be low, you could preserve the charge and make your phone last longer. 


I liked that there are three touch buttons at the bottom of the phone, as opposed to the one button found on my iPhone. The little back button proved a useful for retracing my steps. I liked the search button as it meant that I could find something out within a matter of seconds, it is so useful for when I am at university. 


I genuinely loved this phone. I found that I became very organised and felt on top of everything when using it. It has such a wide set of tools to help you conquer many aspects of your life. I would definitely buy this phone due to it's endless possibilities, it felt far more advanced than your average phone. I have to say, I miss Cortana so much! she was a brilliant addition to my everyday life! I also miss the camera, it was fantastic for capturing moments and taking Instagram photos for my blog! I was so sad to see the phone go after my trial, it will be deeply missed!

Revlon Lipsticks

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick ( Pink Pout & Black Cherry | £7.99

Ah, it's finally time to go into full blown Autumn mode. I thought I would kick off Autumn with some new lipsticks. I saw a deal in Boots where Revlon lipsticks were 2 for £10, obviously I am a sucker for deals so I purchased two. 

I have seen Black Cherry all over the internet, Essie Button looks absolutely gorgeous wearing it. It is a beautiful shade and is about as autumnal as it gets, it looks amazing with a smokey eye. I always look forward to wearing deep cherry shades as they tend to suit me most. They also make me feel pretty badass, I won't lie. I thought I would also purchase a shade that I wouldn't normally go for. Pink Pout is a baby pink shade which is probably more suited to spring/summer, however, it called out to me. It surprisingly compliments my pale skin and I love wearing it with curled hair and winged liner. 

The product itself is extremely long lasting and both have a gorgeous finish. The Black Cherry has a silky finish whereas Pink Pout is matte, the best of both worlds. It is so easy to apply as it glides right on, the pigmentation is perfect straight away. I absolutely love the sleek packaging which has a transparent top, allowing you to view the shade easily! The lipsticks feel very high end and the packaging definitely adds a luxury finish. 

I am very impressed with both of these Lipsticks and feel an unhealthy Revlon lipstick addiction coming on!!
