Botanics Skincare Review

Skincare is something that although I don’t speak about as much on my blog compared to makeup, it is the main priority for me when it comes down looking after your skin which I feel is so important. Before makeup, skincare always comes first. Every night when it’s that time to finally take your makeup off after a long day, I always, always make sure I clean my face before going to bed and do my skincare routine. This is the same for mornings, the first step when I get ready is doing my morning skincare routine before I think about applying makeup. This may seem tiresome and time consuming for those mornings when you are in a rush to get ready or on a night when you just want to get to bed and quickly take your makeup off but I can’t stress enough how important looking after your skin is guys & gals. I’m no expert but sticking to a skincare routine and looking after your skin will help you keep beautiful skin for the future & comes with lots more worthwhile benefits. View Post

New Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours

As a liquid lipstick lover, whenever a brand releases a new range of liquid lippys I’m straight there to get my hands on them so recently when Rimmel released their own range of ‘Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours’ I couldn’t resist picking up a few and adding them to my basket! Since the liquid lipstick trend, I have been practically converted to matte liquid lipsticks over a lipstick. 99% of the time I’ll be wearing a liquid lipstick so if I can find one that I love that doesn’t dry out my lips, I’m onto a winner! After trying these lippys out, I thought I would share with you my thoughts & opinions and if I would overall recommend them! View Post

Ginger Biscuits Recipe

It’s impossible to eat just one of these rather delish, moreish biscuits from my childhood! Especially ‘dunked’ in a good old British cuppa! A few days ago when I fancied something to do, I had a go at baking these ginger biscuits and thought I would share with you how I made them for this months bake! If you’ve run out of biscuits in the house and fancy something to grab for a snack, these crumbly but soft in the middle biscuits with a kick of ginger that are super quick and easy to make are perfect! These also don’t require much skill or need any fancy ingredients to make so anyone can have a go at baking them!

Take your lashes to paradise with L’OREAL

Recently I’ve been trialling and testing a whole load of mascaras hoping and praying that I would find one that ticks all the boxes. Spending money on trying 10 different mascaras is going to amount to quite a bit of money going down the drain which to a student like myself can’t be money wasted. I’m going to hold my hands up and say that not one of the mascaras that I have tried have really wowed me but I just kept on mixing and matching between them each day until I was having a browse in my local drugstore a few days ago and saw that the new L’OREAL Paradise Extatic Mascara had been FINALLY realised in the UK from America. After seeing so many great reviews from American bloggers & vloggers on this mascara I was SO excited to finally get my hands on it. Along with the mascaras on the stand there was also the new brow pomades which I was temped by but managed to restrict myself to just the mascara even though the packaging was absolutely gorgeous! I thought I would share with you my opinions now I have had chance to try it out myself and potentially save you a bit of cash if you’re struggling to find a mascara that’s right for you! View Post

My Self Tanning Routine

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well! I can’t believe its August already, where did July go!? I came back from my holiday in Menorca a few days ago and am already wishing I was back in the glorious sunshine unlike the typical British weather I was greeted to! Coming back from my holiday has thrown me off my usual routine, I feel as though I haven’t sat down and written a post in what seems like forever even though I was only gone a week! While I was away on my holls I managed to catch a slight natural tan but nothing that noticeable unfortunately so this year I thought I would brave it and try out a self/fake tan in the hope of looking a bit less pale this Summer. I’d heard great things about the Garnier Summer Body Lotion so I decided to go for this one and picked one up in the hope of achieving a ‘naturally sun kissed look.’ I must say I have been impressed with the results so far and thought I would share with you all the ins and outs of my self tanning routine that I have been doing recently and everything you need to know on how to achieve a natural looking tan without having to jet of to a place in the sun!
