Huge Colourpop Haul!

Hi my lovelies,

So you may have seen the news that Colourpop started shipping worldwide recently, and to me that meant I could finally put in an order from a brand that I’ve been lusting after for ages now! My order finally arrived, and so here are all the lovely goodies that I ordered! I decided to try out a bit of everything, so grab a cuppa, because this haul is massive! Also, how cute is this little handwritten thank you they sent in the box???

Review: Sleek Power Plump Lip Pencils!

Hi my lovelies,

So as you’re probably aware of by now, I am ridiculously obsessed with Sleek Makeup’s Solstice Highlighter palette! Lately I’ve been giving this brand a bit more of a try and picked up some of their new Power Plump Lip Pencils from Boots to test out, and that’s what this post is all about!

Review: Grounded Grapefruit Coffee Body Scrub! (And a Blogging milestone!!)

Hi my lovelies,

So today’s post is going to be all about skincare, and I’m going to share with you a new find of mine: Grounded Coffee Scrubs! This is also my 100th blog post here on WordPress, so kind of a milestone for me! Yay too 100 posts, and I’ve loved blogging so far for the past 7 (ish) months and want to thank all of you for being here with me so far! I hope you lovelies are enjoying my blog so far and I am super excited for the future!

Grounded are a range of body scrubs, hair masks, lip balms and other natural products that got snapped up on Dragons Den last year. You can buy them from Boots on the high street, which is where I got mine! I knew I had to get the grapefruit one, because I’m obsessed with citrusy scented products, and grapefruit is definitely my favourite! They do sell different versions of this scrub, which have different additional benefits and different scents, such as orange, coconut and peppermint! Grounded say that these scrubs will exfoliate, hydrate and firm skin while still remaining natural and cruelty free; and I am all for all of that, so off I went and put it to the test!

I’m a massive lover of all things face mask, and Origins is a brand I have had a couple of things from in the past and loved, so I definitely needed to snap this up!

Birchbox UK July 2016 “Never Ending Summer”x Millie Mackintosh Unboxing & Review!

Hi my lovelies,

It’s time for another Birchbox unboxing! I reckon July’s box is the best I’ve had in a good few months, and I really like every single product I got in this month’s box (which is rare), so let’s get stuck in!20160710_113746

July’s theme is Never Ending Summer, and is a collab with Millie Mackintosh of Made in Chelsea. She’s now a beauty and style icon, and I love her Instagram. The box design is a gorgeous pinky watercolour style, and I think it’s super pretty and girly! I wish they had kept the drawer style box however, as I really liked that about June’s box!

My Current Night Time Skincare Routine! (Ft. A lot of Clinique)

Hi my lovelies,

I’m on a blogging spree this week! In my attempt to make up for a week and a half of nothing last month, I’m going to try and get at least three-four posts up each week if I can, so wish me luck fitting this in with everything else! I’m done with classes for summer, but I still work 40 hours a week so I’m really having to work at this whole blog thing lately!

For today’s post, I’m sharing my nightly skincare routine with you all! This swaps and changes depending on my skin and the time of year, but this one is my current array of night time products, and I thought it would be something different to share with you guys!

Step 1 – Remove My Makeup

We all know how bad it is for your skin to sleep in makeup, so I take mine off every night with Clinique’s Take the Day Off products (they’re the best I’ve tried!). I use Take the day off for lids, lashes & lips on a cotton pad to remove any eye makeup I’m wearing, especially mascara; along with any liquid lipstick I may have on. Regular lipstick wears off during the day but liquid lips have to be removed completely with an oil based remover, which this one is. You don’t have to do a lot of scrubbing, as the oil does all the work in breaking down the makeup!

Look Incredible Beauty Box – July 2016 Unboxing and Review!

Hi my lovelies,

Today’s post is going to be all about my Look Incredible beauty box for July! If you saw last month’s review you’ll know I was super impressed with Look Incredible’s June box, and while I’m a bit less thrilled about July’s box, I’m still pleased with the contents! Let’s get into this and have a look what’s in store for July!

20160608_170008

If you  don’t know about Look Incredible, it’s a monthly beauty subscription service that for £18.99 (now plus £2.50 postage), promises to deliver you five full sized beauty products every month. They’ve had the likes of Tarte, Bare Minerals, Smashbox, Stila and Nars in previous boxes, and are pretty makeup heavy instead of more skincare items, so If you want to try some new makeup without paying the full price, this one is for you!

Hi my lovelies,

I thought I’d use this post to share with you a few beauty products that I picked up in the last week or so! It’s mostly skincare (mostly face masks, actually), and you can pick up all of these from the drugstore, so they’re nice and affordable too!

 

Face Masks – I went a little overboard here, I can’t help myself when it comes to face masks!

June Beauty Faves!

Hi my lovelies,

Can you believe that half the year has gone already? I’m not sure (and a little worried) about where six whole months has passed since I first started this blog (it was back in late December), but it’s been such a great experience so far and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for me and my little blog! Thanks to all you lovely people for sticking with me so far!

Anyway, here are the products I’ve been using and loving throughout June! Yet again I have loads of things to share with you, so let’s start with makeup!
