    5 Beauty Tips I Would Give To My Daughter

    Everyone has their own beauty routines and tips and tricks. There are particular ones I have that I feel like I should share. My Mum shared beauty tips with me and these are the 5 beauty tips I would give to my daughter. I’m sure she probably won’t listen but I’m pretty sure I didn’t listen to my mum either! It’s only as you get older that you realise she was right. 1) Always remove mascara in an upwards motion. This is a tip my mum gave to me. It apparently reduces black circles and is kinder the the gentle under eye skin, reducing the chance of developing wrinkles. I…

    My Favourite Beauty Products – May 19

    I genuinely can’t believe it’s June already! Where is this year going? May was a fantastic month for me, it was so busy and we done so many things! Throughout the month I picked up a few new beauty products that I’m now loving so thought I’d share them! It clearly seems to be a 6 monthly thing as the last time I done a post like this was January. I love trying something new and everything I’ve tried this month has been great. There’s nothing worse than being disappointed by new products. So let’s start with a random Internet purchase that is now one of my favourite beauty products.…

    Skincare In Your Early 30’s – My Favourite Products

    Skincare in your early 30’s is definitely not the same as it was in your 20’s. Has anyone else noticed this? It’s like a strange period in time where the products you used in your 20’s are now not powerful enough. A lot of the anti-wrinkle creams seem to be aimed at 40+ skin though and are too heavy for 30’s skin. We’re kind of forgotten about and left to our own devices to find something that works. I found that my skin changed almost overnight when I turned 30. Well maybe not that quick but I’m only 32 now! I went from having quite greasy, spot prone skin to…

    March 19 Glossybox Review

    It’s been a while since I reviewed a Glossybox. The last one was December but I’ve still had it every month. I try not to write about the same subjects in a month and I’ve had better things to write about when it comes to beauty, like my Lavera Review. I have been considering changing subscription boxes as I’ve been having Glossybox for a couple of years now. I can’t decide what to go for though. So for now I’ll stick with being a Glossy. This month was the classic pink box but with an Empowerment theme. The products have all been created by inspiring entrepreneurs and are in the box to inspire…

    Lavera Natural Makeup Review

    I was gifted a range of makeup products by Lavera and this is my honest review. I’ve been following Lavera on Instagram for a while now as I am really interested in natural products. I try to use as many as I can as they tend to be better for my skin and the environment too. Lavera’s products are 100% certified as natural and the do a huge range of makeup and skin products. Some of the products are Vegan Certified too but you’ll have to check their website to be sure of which ones. I am a little obsessed with makeup so when they asked me what I wanted…

    January Makeup Favourites

    My first beauty post of 2019! And for once it’s not a Glossybox Review. I thought I’d do a quick post about my favourite makeup products at the moment. I got a couple of them for Christmas and another couple beforehand but I am loving them all this month. It has been noted before that I can be a bit lazy when it comes to hair and makeup. I love the stuff though and when I do put a face on, I like to make sure it’s noticed. You can read my Lazy Girl’s Guide To A No Makeup, Makeup Look here. And also my Hair And Beauty Hacks post…

    A Pony Called What? – Product Review

    Am I the only person that still has smellies left over from Christmas? Over 8 months later and I still have a few but I’m a little sick of smelling like my Nan’s favourite flowery scent. Again, is that just me that ends up with “lavender” or “white lily”? Don’t get me wrong, I love lilies, they’re my favourite flower but have you ever really smelt one? If I have fresh ones in the house I spend a good day or so wondering who’s done a wee in the kitchen! Old fashioned smells are something of the past now though. I have swapped out a couple of my current products…

    August Empties 2018 – What I’ve Used Up This Month

    I’ve seen many a beauty blogger doing these types of posts. I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and post about the products I’ve finished off this month. I am not the biggest user of beauty products; I am very lazy (which you can read about HERE). That also means this won’t be a regular thing unfortunately. It takes me a while to use products up as I don’t tend to stick to the same ones day in day out. But anyway, back to this month and my August empties! This month I have come to the end of 5 different products. This post is basically a run-down of what the…

    August Glossybox ’18 Review

    It’s that time of the month again: The August Glossybox time! I’ve managed to get through the products quite quickly this month. The main reason being, it was mainly makeup and the 2nd reason being, I didn’t try some of it. So the theme this month was ‘Pride’. It was of course Brighton Pride this month and I think it was a great theme for this month’s Glossybox. The special edition box looked great! The multicolour, paint splashed, rainbow lid looks beautiful. The inside looks just as good with the rainbow dots on the ribbon. Everything about the theme was fantastic, it’s a shame about some of the products. Let’s…

    XO Balm Review

    I was asked to trial XO Balm as I get patches of dry skin on my arms and legs at times. I use moisturiser pretty religiously after a shower or bath in order to stop them from getting too bad. So when I got offered the chance to try a multi-use, natural balm of course I jumped at it. Natural products are a big thing for me these days; shampoo, soaps, you name it, I’ll try it! I just feel like it’s nicer to know what you’re putting on your skin and hair rather than using something with a million ingredients that you can’t read. Yes they are slightly more…
