Prime Time

It is my humble opinion that a good primer is absolutely essential to any makeup look. I don't think it matters if you're putting on a full face to go out for the night or if you're having a 'no makeup' makeup look, primer is key. You could be wearing the most expensive luxurious products but unless you've prepped your base correctly, those products will never live up to their full potential.

Birchbox | Unboxing

I was so pleased with this months Birchbox that I decided I wanted to share a post of it with you lovely people. If you're not sure what Birchbox is you can check them out here, you sign up to a subscription to either pay monthly, for 6 months, or for a year. Each month they send you a box with 5-6 deluxe samples, sometimes you'll receive a bonus item which they refer to from the 'Lifestyle/Extra' category. Each month has its own theme and the items you received are tailored to you. When you sign up you fill out a beauty profile of yourself which allows Birchbox to personalise your box to your beauty/skin/hair care preferences. I think its such a great idea, i'm always wanting to try new products and discover new brands and this is the perfect opportunity for that. Birchbox also gives you the opportunity to earn points (from re-billing, filling out surveys on items received and sometimes they'll just give you little extra ones here and there). Each 100 rewards points can be redeemed for £10 to spend in the online store. From the store you have access to purchase full sizes of any of the samples sent out but they also stock so many other beauty, hair care, skin care items from a variety of brands.

Topshop Review | 5 Years of Beauty

Happy Tuesday everyone! I wanted to try and take our minds off of the fact that Friday feels like a million years away and what better way to do so than to take you on a little Topshop journey with me! A week or so ago I was browsing the Topshop store in Churchill Square, Brighton, and I suddenly remembered the new beauty products that have just been released in celebration of Topshops beauty line being 5 years old! I can't believe that it's been that long already!

Drugstore Review | L'Oréal Elvive Nutri-Gloss

I was recently in Tescos and was browsing the shampoo and conditioners feeling pretty uninspired. I was in the market for a new set but nothing was catching my eye, it was all just same same and I really wanted something fun! I was recently using the L'Oréal Elvive Ulta Riche shampoo and conditioner, don't get me wrong it was good but it just wasn't great and I wasn't too bothered about repurchasing. I was quite interested in the Fibre range from L'Oréal and just as I was searching for it. something caught my eye. Something pink and sparkly. Something amazing in the shampoo and conditioner land.

Pick Me Up Products

You know when you're having a really crappy week and then out of the blue someone does something so lovely they restore all of your faith in humanity? well that happened to me last week, on Friday my lovely boyfriend decided he wanted to treat me to a pick me up after a heinously long and tiring week. He treated me to a few lovely bits of makeup that I have been coveting for so long!

All About Eyes



I'd  like to take a minute to share with you one of my most favourite travel sized eyeshadow palettes. I say travel sized, it's a full sized product but its such a snug little compact it's perfect for travelling as it doesn't take up much space and has the perfect colours for a causal everyday look or a more done up, dramatic look. Oh and the palette also includes a perfect sized mirror for on the go!
