Being Sun Smart With Institut Esthederm


As I have such pale skin, I am always so careful with it and even more when it comes to the warmer summer months where it is going to be exposed to the sun more. Therefore I'm always on the look out for sun protection that is specially formulated not only for the face, but also for fair skin that is more sensitive to the sun, so that is where Institut Esthederm Moderate Face Cream * comes in!

A Hot Summer's Day


One thing I always struggle with when the weather gets warm, is what makeup to wear.

So, how about a tutorial that's perfect for the hottest of summer days?

Putting The Diamond Into Nails


One thing I don't blog about much but absolutely love doing, is my nails and I own a large (and ever growing) box full of nail polishes in every shade, brand and effect possible! Although nowadays I normally use gel polish, especially if I want it to last, sometimes you just find a nail polish that is so gorgeous, you just HAVE to wear it.

While some people do online shopping/browsing, I am always on the lookout for new and unique recipes to try out, particularly baking recipes - pinterest is one of my main inspiration sites along with a few other baking websites. Saying that, this recipe is one I found of pinterest but I've changed things to make it my own and create these delicious Gin & Tonic Cupcakes!

The Handbag Compact | Joan Collins Beauty


One thing that is always in my bag - normally rolling around at the bottom - is a lipstick! Most of the time it's the one I'm wearing that day or just the one I picked up in a rush on the way out so it could be any colour. The other item that is normally in my bag somewhere is a powder and brush. As someone with oily skin, this is an essential when I know I'm out all day. However, with all this rolling around at the bottom of my bag, there comes a few problems but Joan Collins Beauty have solved all of these!

My Everyday Makeup Routine

Kiss Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes


Hand's up if you've heard about mink lashes or have seen them using in tutorials?! I know I have but the one thing about a lot of them, is that they use real mink. That is why Kiss have now started to sell FAUX mink lashes which are a lot more humane while still feeling and looking luxurious and fluttery.

#GetFruity With Asda & nspa Beauty


Spring and Summer is all about fresh and fruity scents, so why not include them in your bath and/or shower? Honestly, this is the scent I normally go for anyway as I find it relaxing, but it is so hard to find products that are fruity without being over sweet and sickly. However, I may how found the answer in Asda as they now exclusively stock nspa Beauty which have amazing spa like products in a range of different and amazing scents!

XIP Professional


I'm the first to admit that contouring is one makeup 'trend' that I still can't completely do/pull off, mainly the darker contour shade as it always seems to go wrong! Saying that, it may be that I haven't found the right shade that works for my skin tone as I am quite pale, so having a palette that has a few different choices is exactly what I need. My contouring fairy godmother has come in the form of XIP Professional and their amazing palettes!

Velvet Love With Farfetch


One fabric that is still hugely on trend (and was all over the catwalks!) is velvet and while I wasn't originally a fan, it has definitely grown on me! Velvet, when worn well, always looks very regal and expensive, especially when it bold shades such as red, green and black which is just a classic colour in any fabric. After reading Farfetch's Style Guide, I was so inspired by their feature on velvet, I just had to create this post!

L'Oreal Infallible Paint Collection


L'Oreal is one brand I go back to time and time again as their products are not only amazing, but their products seem to suit my skin rather than cause breakouts - this especially goes for their foundations! A while ago, they released their 'paint' collection which also links in with their 'infallible' range, so as you can guess, I've had these photos for a while and completely forgot about them until I was having a sort through!

Life Lessons From Owning A Horse


When I tell people I own a horse, there is generally a mixed reaction. Some think I'm just a rich, stuck up b****h (I'm really, honestly not at all!) or they want to know when they can come and see her - two complete opposite reactions. What a lot of people don't realise are the life lessons you gain from owning and being around horses - things which stay with you forever and you can put into other areas of your life.

Why You Need A Pair Of Pointed Shoes


One trend that also incorporates pretty much every other trend in fashion - colours, embroidery, lengths, boots, kitten heels - pretty much any word you can use to describe shoes - is the pointed toe trend.

Mother's Day With Prestige Flowers


The one thing I always buy for my mum on Mother's Day/her birthday/Christmas/any time really, is a big,  beautiful bouquet of flowers. The thing is, she loves them every time and they always look different while still including some of her favourites - oh and super colourful too - so I don't think she ever gets bored of receiving them, I hope anyway! Prestige Flowers got in contact with me and asked if I would like one of their bouquets, so of course I said yes!

One thing I love finding from new beauty brands, is lipstick and I'm the first to admit that I have way too many, but still buy more -ooops! Since one of my friends became vegan, I find that I tend to notice what is in things more and that included cosmetics - did you know that a lot of the most popular brands are cruelty free? This mainly stand for the more international brands as they can't be sold in some countries without having being tested on animals. When Bohemian Chic Minerals * asked me if I would like to try out one of their lipsticks, oh course I said yes!
