Favourite of the Week: Don Broco -Everybody

Hello lovelies,

Hope you’ve all had an awesome week, I wanted to write a quick post on my favourite of this week. I have not stopped listening to this song and had to find away to share it with everyone.

Don Broco are known for their alternative music, their songs can range from funk, alternative rock through to post-hardcore. I honestly believe there is a song for everyone and it’s such feel good music.

The most recent song is ‘Everybody’, which has been released just before their upcoming tour, which I have the excitement of attending in a couple of weeks. There is not much I can say about the song other than you HAVE to listen to it for yourself. Here is the link to the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6JZ6IgCKKo

Thanks for reading

My skincare journey..

Good Evening beauties,

This is a post that I’m a little nervous for, but I am so impressed with my recent results that I just had to share it with you all.

I’ve never ever had good skin, for as long as I remember I have always suffered with redness, blemishes and verging on spot acne. I have been through hundreds of skin care products and the products which always used to work for me were from The Body Shop, they would clear up my skin for a while and it was almost as if they stopped having an effect on me after using them for a couple of weeks and then my skin would go back to a horrible mess. I didn’t used to take pictures of myself without make up as I hated what I saw so you’ll just have to take my word for how bad my skin was but here is what my skin looks like at the moment, it’s definitely not perfect but it is a million times better than it used to be.

After many years of trial and error, I was introduced to the Seaweed collection at The Body Shop. This has changed everything, I started to use the products on a daily basis after finding out my skin type was combination/oily and I’d had a lot of recommendations for this range.

My morning routine starts with the ‘Purifying Cleanser’ and then I use the ‘Gel Day Cream’, this day moisturiser dries so quickly so I don’t find myself having to wait for ages before I can apply my make up. My evening routine starts with the ‘Deep Cleansing Facial Wash’, followed by the ‘Oil-Control Overnight Gel’ and I use the clay mask around twice a week.

If you suffer with similar issues to me when it comes to your skin then I cannot recommend this range enough (as well as making a super special effort to drink lots of water!!!!), it’s not overly expensive and The Body Shop often have discounts floating around. Find the range here: http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/shop-by-range/seaweed.aspx#/seaweed.aspx

Thank you for reading,

Hen do planning

Hello loves,

A post that I am super excited to be writing, hen do planning is well underway. After a lot of thought and recommendations I finally decided that my destination of choice is Brighton. I’ve never been and what persuaded me to go there is the day time activities as well as the good night life, it has a really good balance and the thought of fresh sea air when we’re all hanging sounds amazing.

There are 11 of us going, so at the moment we’re looking at renting a full apartment that sleeps us all in. I’ve been told the only part of the hen do I can be involved in is the transport and accommodation, after that they’re chucking me out of the group chat and I won’t know anything they’re planning, which is a very scary thought.

I cannot believe how quick this year is going, I feel so unprepared for the wedding but at the same time I can’t think of anything else to book at the moment. It’s a busy time of our lives at the moment and although it’s stressful I am really determined to enjoy every minute.

I’ll be sure to update you on the next exciting wedding related project!

Morphe 35T palette review

Hello lovlies,

I have been MIA for the past couple of weeks, no major reason behind it, I’ve just been super busy and haven’t had much inspiration but I’m hoping now life has calmed down a bit that I’ll be able to put a lot more time aside for my blog posts.

This post is another review of an eye shadow palette, it is the Morphe 35t. I have wanted a Morphe palette for a while and had been eyeing this one up for the past month or so. I was a little sceptical on this palette as a lot of pictures that I saw, the shades looked really similar and I wondered if it was a bit of a waste of money. I ended up buying the palette after figuring that I could never have enough rose gold/brown toned shades, as that’s all I usually wear anyway.

I took a picture of the eye shadows in the sun light so you can see the glitter/shimmer in some of the colours. It has an impressive mix of shimmer, metallic, satin and matte shades. You can produce a nice subtle eye as well as a full out glam look and that is something I really like in a palette. The formula of the eye shadows is very creamy, which makes applying these an absolute dream.

Lastly, the price, I cannot begin to describe how good value for money this palette is. I got it off Beauty Bay  and it cost £18.25 with free delivery, there are 35 shades so this works out to 52p a shade. The palette arrived 2 days after placing the order so if you’re ever wondering whether to make a purchase on Beauty Bay, I would definitely recommend the service.

Thanks for reading, let me know what you think of the Morphe products, is there anything else you think I’d love?

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette..

Happy Sunday everyone!

I know I’m pretty late to this one but I wanted to write a post on my thoughts of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar eye palette. I purchased this palette about a month ago, from Debenhams for £39.

All of the colours in this palette are super wearable and after using this palette pretty much everyday since I bought it I have created lots of different looks and managed to use every shade, there is a nice variation of shimmers and mattes. My favourite shades have to be Haute Chocolate, Marzipan and Black Forest Truffle.

The palette is inspired by Too Faced’s Chocolate Bronzers, with the added bonus of the products ACTUALLY smelling of chocolate. Sometimes that can be overwhelming at 6:30am when you’re getting ready for work, but it’s a really unique trait.

Another thing I love about the product is the large mirror it comes with along the top, I really like my palettes to have a mirror as they’re super handy for when you’re on the go.

Let me know if you have this product, and if you’d recommend anything else from Too Faced as I’m pretty new to the brand.

Tanya Bakes (and the book signing!)

Hello guys,

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to go to Tanya Burr’s book signing for her new book ‘Tanya Bakes’, it was a great experience. My sister and I had to wait around for a couple of hours but when we met her she said she loved my lipstick so I’d say it was worth it.

In this post I really wanted to concentrate on the book itself. I love baking,  I’m still learning and half the things I bake usually don’t turn out as they should, but I find it really therapeutic. There is something about buying the ingredients, shutting yourself in the kitchen and just getting lost in the recipes.

 This is like no other baking book I’ve seen, the attention to detail is brilliant and you can tell this wasn’t a rushed product. The recipes are really up my street and I honestly don’t think there is a recipe in there that I wouldn’t or couldn’t attempt. There are 8 different sections in the book, anything from baked pizzas to an impressive looking celebration cake.

I think my first 2 projects for this weekend are the Salted Nutella Cookies and the Cheese Scones as they both look amazing and I can already tell they will be a favourite with my fiancé and family.

 I would definitely recommend picking up this book if you’re a fan of baking as there are recipes for beginners and for people willing to take on a complex bake.

 Thanks for reading you lovely people, and let me know if you’ve read this book!
