Christmas Gift Guide

I thought I would do something different for my Christmas gift guide this year, mainly because I have done a few single review posts already! Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to do more of a roundup gift guide...

Clive Christian Perfume

Who doesn't love a luxury fragrance? I know I do but then again, there is luxury and then there's Clive Christian, home to the worlds most expensive perfume and the leading independent British perfumery. Established in 1872 as Crown Perfumery Company, it was created to cater for the higher society in London and was purchased by Clive Christian in 1999 to restore it to its former glory.

Bradbury's The Jewellers Of Halifax

One thing I never really talk about my love for on here, is my love of jewellery and all that is about the change! Over the past few years, I've gone away from buying fast-fashion jewellery and decided to invest in it. Even though it might cost more, I know the pieces I buy will last a lifetime! So I'm sure you can imagine my excited when Bradbury's The Jewellers sent me a gorgeous gift from one of the brands they stock.

Demon Of The Night

It's October, so it's time to bring out all the crazy makeup, wigs - although I use them all year! - costumes and everything autumnal! Red is one colour I always associate with autumn with the leaves and, of course, Halloween!!

Flawless Lashes Eyeliner

One thing I've always found hard makeup wise is eyeliner. For some reason I've never been able to get the wing or even get it anywhere near my lash line, it normally just ends up every where but near my eye! Recently I started using Flawless Lashes by Loreta eyeliners and they have ben an absolute game changer!

Where Am I From? | LivingDNA

In the last year, due to a number of reasons, I've realised that I know so little about my family and where they are from etc even though it's something I am really interested in. Of course, there are so many ways to do this so when Living DNA asked if I would like to do a ancestry DNA with them, so of course I said yes!

Andrew Barton Haircare

So I still haven't found the hair products that do anything and everything for my hair yet, but it is of course a case of trail and error! Recently, I've been trying out Andrew Barton haircare range and I may have just found some products that do exactly what I want!

No Scratch Just Zap-It!

Although summer and the warm weather is something we wait for all year, it does come with some downfalls with the biggest and most annoying being the flies and especially the mosquitos if you go on holiday! The most annoying thing with these bites it how stupidly itchy they get, but why scratch when you can zap?

Away With The Fairy Lights

Summer is all about going all out with the shimmer, glitter and well, anything shiny weather that's just with your makeup or including your outfit in the glitter-rinses! To help with this, Pixi recently sent me their entire range of their Fairy Lights and two of their Glow-y Gossamer Duo palettes to create the ultimate shimmery look and to just glow!

Aldi Lacura Eyeshadow Palettes

You can never have too many eyeshadow palettes, right? Ok, maybe you can but I'm still going to buy more! This time, I spotted two eyeshadow palettes that look like exact dupes from a high end brand (more on this later) so decided to put them to the test - can you believe these are from Aldi?!

Rimmel Sun Shimmer

As I've said before, I have really pale skin but I honestly quite like it and always have! I have tried fake tan a couple of times and pretty much every time it's gone wrong in some way, from going streaky to just orange - never a good luck! Until recently, I had no idea Rimmel London did fake tan and I was lucky enough to receive 3 of their different formulas to try.

Classic Glam Makeup

Is there any makeup look more classic then defined eyes and a bright red lip?! It's just a look the suits everyone and every skin tone and perfect for when you just want to look glam without going over the top - in my opinion anyway!

4 No Heat Hairstyles

One thing I hate doing is using a lot of heat on my hair to style it, especially since my hair is prone to split ends and going dry. Therefore I don't really tend to do a lot with my hair, but sometimes I really just want it off my face without having to rely on just a ponytail, which I personally don't like on myself.

Design.ME Hair

Hair, to me, is one of the first things you notice about a person so finding products that work with and for your hair type can be so hard to find. Design.ME is North American brand that has recently launched in the UK to help combat some of your hair woes!

The Flowers That Keep On Giving

We all know that flowers make the most gorgeous gift, or even just as a little present to yourself, so what could be better than a beautiful bouquet that also gives to a charity? Prestige Flowers are doing just that by creating Cancer Research Flowers.

Being Body Confident With UK Lingerie

I've never been someone who has been confident or unconfident in how my body looks, I always just sort of accepted it as it is. Of course, there are parts that I like more than others (who doesn't?) and parts I wish I could change especially when I was younger with the main thing having tiny boobs - a firm member of the itty bitty titty group here! However I have grown to like them and embrace them and with the help of UK Lingerie, feel confident enough to show me on both my blog and social media.

Biscoff & Chocolate Chip Pastry Plait

Baking with pastry not only makes something absolutely delicious, it can also be incredibly quick and easy especially if you cheat a little an use ready made pastry! While I can make it, it's so much quicker to use when all you have to do it roll it out. I also love Biscoff spread and chocolate, so why no combine them all together to create a Biscoff & Chocolate Chip Pastry Plait.

The Get To Know Me Tag

Can you believe I've been doing YouTube nearly a year and I still haven't shared that much about me, other than my love of makeup/recreating weird looks! I've been wanting to do this tag for so long, but I've always ended up being distracted by filming something else so it was high time that changed!

A Face Mask For Every Occasion

Before this time last year, can you believe that I have never used a face mask before?! That is the honest truth but obviously since then I've tried so many different ones, so I was so excited to try out nspa beauty rituals new range of face masks with each doing something different for your skin.

Pink Hair & The Greatest Showman

Hands up who's seen (and fallen in love with) The Greatest Showman? Put it this way, I've seen it 3 times already and had the soundtrack on repeat - yes, I know every word to every song even though I can't sing! Of course, I was hugely inspired by the hair and makeup too!

Biore Skincare

Biore is one of those brands where I have only ever used one of their products and for some reason, have never tried anything else even though they have so much choice! I was so excited when they very kindly sent me a few things to try out - one has now become one of my favourites to use everyday!

Rimmel London Urban Affair Range

Yeah, I got more liquid lipsticks and these are also more of the Rimmel Stay Matte Lips in their new shades as part of the Urban Affair range. This also includes 4 gorgeous new shades of the Super Gel nail polishes, with some matching exactly to the lip colours - can you get any better than that?!

Yellow Mellow Makeup & Soul Tree Kajal Liners

Do you ever just see a makeup photo on instagram that you should HAVE to try and recreate? I admit, 80% of the time, these look amazing but are impossible to do unless you are super talented at makeup - something I am not - but every now and again, one just shows up which looks incredible and isn't too complicated!

Dermalogica For Oily Skin

A new year means new skincare right?! Even more so when it's a brand you haven't tried before and for me, this is the case with Dermalogica who I had heard of but had never tried - until now!

Mick Elysee's Mango Melting Tatin

It's been quite a while since I last featured a recipe on here, so it was high time to do one and this is the perfect African twist from chef Mick Elysee - the Mango Melting Tatin! While this isn't the easiest recipe, it tastes so amazing I've made it twice!

Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks

You should all know by now my love for two things, lipsticks and Pixi Beauty, so what could be better than combining the two! Answer - not much! While I have tried their lipsticks, they only recently starting doing liquid ones and matte ones at that, and they very kindly sent me some to try out.
