(Slightly Belated) September Faves & Fails!

Hi my lovelies,

Happy October! We’re now into autumn (my favourite season!) , my jumpers and sweatshirts have come back into my clothes rotation as the weather turns colder, and I have my eye on a brand new pair of boots! The slow cooker is coming in handy with warming food and soups, and I get to switch up my beauty routine! Also: Halloween!! The transition from summer to autumn has been less than smooth (the weather can’t make up it’s mind), and my skin has been suffering a little lately – today we’re here to talk about the good and the bad for September, so let’s get stuck in!

Birchbox October 2016 – Sneak Peek!

Hi my lovelies,

I normally start these posts with “Can you believe it’s X month already” but we all know this year has gone by so so fast! We’re back with another sneak peek of this month’s Birchbox, and it looks like another pretty good one for October!

October’s box is celebrating star signs, and comes complete with another drawer style box (yay!) that reflects the element of your star sign and glows in the dark!. I’m a Sagittarius so I should get the Fire box – a trait that I’m super happy about! It won’t match my decor, but I love the look of the boxes this month! Birchbox is promising to send us beauty that matches our star signs this month (whatever that means?) plus a full size makeup item for October!

For those of you who don’t know about Birchbox, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends around 5 beauty products (including makeup, skincare and haircare) to your door each month. Sometimes there is also a beauty bonus included, such as January’s #nofilter compact mirror! It costs £10 plus £2.95 postage, and in my opinion is well worth it so far as I’ve found products that I really love (Spectrum makeup brushes, anybody?)!

Birchbox also now ships to Ireland, so all you Irish lovelies can now get your hands on this little box of wonders too!

Birchbox September 2016 – Sneak Peek!

Hi my lovelies,

Can you believe September is here already! We’re heading towards autumn now, and as the days get darker and the nights get colder, we definitely need that little bit of luxury to pep us up! Step in Birchbox! Last month’s offering wasn’t the best ever, as I only really liked around half the products in my box for August, and the bag was disappointing. I’m hoping for great things in September though!

I’m not sure that September’s box has a theme, but this month Birchbox is back with the drawer style box, which I’m super happy with – it makes storing things in there so much easier! The box looks super cute too, with pretty geometric pastels that I will definitely keep using (it would make a perfect place to store my face masks, I think!).

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!

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!

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!

Birchbox July 2016 – Sneak Peek!

Hi my lovelies,

So June’s Birchbox post from me may have been super late, but I’m on time with my sneak peek post for this month at least! So without any fuss, here’s what July’s Birchbox has on offer!

July’s box theme is “Never Ending Summer” and is sort of a mini collab with Millie Mackintosh (of Made in Chelsea fame and now style icon), and is based around her love of bohemian style and endless summers. This month’s box is jam packed full of products that will carry us right through to the end of summer, and to me, it looks like the best one in a while! July’s design looks super girly and summery, and while they haven’t kept the drawer layout 😦 It’s still really pretty and stems from Millie’s love of sunsets!

For those of you who don’t know about Birchbox, it’s a beauty subscription service that sends around 5 beauty products (including makeup, skincare and haircare) to your door each month. Sometimes there is also a beauty bonus included, such as January’s #nofilter compact mirror! It costs £10 plus £2.95 postage, and in my opinion is well worth it so far as I’ve found products that I really love (Spectrum makeup brushes, anybody?)!

Look Incredible Beauty Box – June 2016: The Best Box Yet?

Hi my lovelies,

It’s Look Incredible unboxing time again, and I have to say that this one is a doozy! If you saw last month’s box review, you’ll know that I was less than impressed with some of the products, but Look Incredible have brought it back this month with some fantastic products from brands I really like!

Birchbox June 2016 – Sneak Peek!

Hi my lovelies,

I’m back with another sneak peek of this month’s Birchbox! In May subscribers got an email from Birchbox asking if we wanted to upgrade our boxes this month with some stylish sunglasses, so I had high hopes about this box having a super sunny summer theme, and it does!

3-Reasons

The theme this month is “Paradise Found”, and features loads of products to get your summer sorted! It also comes with two totally tropical box designs this month, with either palm trees or pineapples! Something that I like about the style of June’s box is that they’ve introduced a drawer style layout which is a really nice touch!
