What I Got For My Birthday..

Hello guys!

My birthday was a few weeks ago now but I’ve only just put everything away and really been able to appreciate how lucky I was! I thought I’d do a little post to show you all what I was gifted, I’m unable to write about everything I was bought, as I said i was extremely lucky and received lots, but here are a few.

I was lucky enough to receive two amazing perfumes from my fiancé, Jake. He bought me the Jo Malone ‘Earl Grey and Cucumber’ cologne and the YSL Black Opium. These are very different scents and although the Jo Malone one sounds super strange it is actually one of the most beautiful and feminine scents I own.

Along with the perfumes, Jake also bought me the Zoeva ‘Complete Eye Brush Set’, this came with 12 eye brushes and a gorgeous little bag to put them in. I haven’t stopped using these since my birthday and I cannot believe how applying my eye make up has improved, it is definitely down to these beauties.

I received a Fitbit Alta from my parents, now the wedding is getting closer I am needing to step up the exercise game. What I love about this is the leaderboard, it encourages me to do more exercise as I don’t want to be bottom! My parents also bought me two tickets to meet Tanya Burr in Norwich this coming Sunday, which I am VERY excited about

My younger brother bought me a really thoughtful present, it is a rose gold chain bracelet with my initial and birth stone as charms. I absolutely loved this and I’m still convinced he MUST have had some sort of help as what 18 year old boy can get a present so right?! (I couldn’t take a good picture of my one so here’s a picture from the website)

I am so thankful for all the presents and money I received, I thought that turning 22 I wouldn’t receive as many gifts yet every year I am always spoilt rotten!

Hope you enjoyed reading, let me know if you have any of these products and what you think of them!

Favourite of the week – Barry M Lip Oil

Hello lovlies,

So my favourite of this week is the new Barry M Lip Oil, especially the ‘Berry Good’ edition. It has Raspberry and Pomegranate oils in to moisturise and condition the lips. I was very sceptical at first buying this as I have a hatred towards sticky lip products, but for £5 I didn’t have much to lose.

I was so impressed at the consistency of these lip products, they are a thick oil but feel really nourishing on the lips AND they’re not sticky!! The colour pay off is probably the one thing I would criticise as I can barely notice the berry tones on my lips, but I usually only wear this when I’m chilling around the house anyway, so the lack of colour isn’t too much of an issue. I also wanted to mention the applicator on these, it twists round whilst you’re applying it to your lips. At first I thought it was a little pointless but after using it a few times I do think it has helped apply the oil.

The smell really reminds me of the ‘I Love… Raspberry and Blackberry Shower and Bath Creme’, a really scrummy berry scent.

I’d definitely give this a try if you can. A really good dupe for the Clarins lip oil and for a quarter of the price!

OOTD – Summer casual

Hey guys,

As some of you will know, here in the UK we don’t have a solid Summer. It can be blasting sun and heat one minute and the next we’ll be soaked by heavy rain. Even on the brightest of days I still don’t have much confidence in the weather to go out in shorts or vest tops.

I thought I’d do a little OOTD post with an outfit I’ve been leaning towards a lot recently in this crazy bipolar weather. It’s super comfortable, affordable and a casual day-to-day outfit choice.

Top – Primark £13ish (They also do it in other colours like pink)

Jeans – Topshop Joni Black ripped jeans £38

Shoes – Schuh own brand slip on £25

Bag – Accessorise (Not available anymore)

Sunglasses – ASOS Quay Australia (Not available anymore)

Necklace – Kit Heath £60

Thanks for reading,

Zoella Beauty – Sweet Inspirations

Hey guys!

Today I’m doing a sort of review/first impression post on the new launch from Zoella Beauty. From the past ranges that Zoe has released (Classic and Tutti Fruity), the Classic scent was definitely my favourite. I did find, especially with the spritz, that the scent could sometimes be a little overpowering and I didn’t find myself leaning towards it that muhc. I prefer sweet scents so when I heard the hype of the Sweet Inspirations range I knew I had to give it a go. I also think the packaging is a lot more ‘adult’ and reaches out to a much wider audience that the previous products, I think if I were to design a beauty range, it would look a lot like these.

Rather than purchasing everything I decided to opt for the products that I would definitely use. I went for the Spritz, Bath Latte and Life is sweet bag. Firstly, the scent is massively up my street, I have smelt anything like this, the best way I can describe it is a musky vanilla/almond scent but you honestly have to go and give it a spray when you’re next around a Superdrug. I think it would make an AMAZING candle so I hope that could be one for the future as well! The ‘Bath Latte’ lathers up really well in the bath/shower and I find the scent stays on my skin for a while after so that is definitely the bath product I’m leaning towards at the moment.

I had to buy the small ‘Life is sweet’ bag as it is such girly, frilly delight. It is a gorgeous muted purple/grey toned bag (similar colour to Palma Violets) and it fits the perfect essential on-the-go make up.

I can’t praise these enough, I will definitely be purchasing the other products in the range as soon as I can. If you ever get the chance to test these then PLEASE do, I can’t imagine this scent being disliked by anyone. The prices are super reasonable too!

Thanks for reading,

Birthday fun!

Hey guys,

It’s my 22nd birthday tomorrow and I have a week off work so thought I’d let you all know what I’m up to. I live alone with my fiancé so on the day of my birthday we will probably just have a lazy morning in and then head out for a meal and drinks later on in the evening.

The next trip I have planned is to London Zoo on Wednesday, we are off early in the morning and get a train back later in the evening so we can have a few drinks after a long day walking around the zoo. I love animals, especially Tigers and Lions so I am super excited to go back to my favourite zoo, I haven’t been in so many years.

We were also thinking about taking a train to Cambridge one of the days we have left, it’s only about an hour train ride from where we live, and if the weathers nice there is so much to do around that area.

Depending on what I get for my birthday I’ll also want to have a little play with my new things. I have asked for A LOT of make up so I’m really looking forward to seeing what I get, but of course, the main thing is that I get to spend the day with my favourites!

Have a good week lovelies,

Tori Moore xoxo

Favourite of the week – Not Everything Sucks

Hey guys,

I haven’t done a favourite of the week in a while so thought I’d write a quick post on a stand out fashion item I’ve recently retrieved from the wardrobe. I used to use this tote bag a lot, but like many of my other bags, it then got chucked to the back of the wardrobe until recently where I found it up. I really like wearing this to make an outfit a little more edgy.

The saying ‘Not Everything Sucks’ is one I really love and stand by. I have it on a mug, pin badge and obviously the tote bag, all with the same logo. I also have a sticker of it on the back of my phone to be reminded of my favourite saying whilst out and about.

The design is by a company called ‘Abandon Ship’ and you get 15% off when you sign up to their mailing list. They have so many different products and ranges and some of the ‘Not Everything sucks’ products are still available online.

Let me know your favourites this week/month

Skincare Suggestions, please?!

Hey lovelies,

I need your help! I recently went for a facial and the lovely lady advised me that I have combination skin. Oily forehead and cheeks and the rest of my face is relatively dry. I’ve always used a mix of skincare products, mainly The Body Shop as I’ve always got on with their natural ingredients.

I would love you to help me test out some new products that would be suitable for my skin. The lady that worked in the Spa also advised me to put a mud mask on my face once a week, does anyone know of a good natural mud mask as I’ve never purchased one before? Also I have sensitive skin, so it has to be able to work with that too!

Thank you in advance you lovely people,

Tori Moore xoxo
