What I'm Loving At The Moment

Thursday, August 25, 2016

Hello, hello! I hope you are all well? Today I'm here with a "what I'm loving at the moment" post. It's been a while! I have been trying some amazing new things at the moment and also finding some new loves! I'm someone who does tend to stick to things I really love but sometimes I do try something new and it becomes my holy grail, I must have had about 10000 holy grails over the years! To be honest I still think my most loved thing Ruby Tuesday red lipstick by Max Factor! On with what I'm loving!

Okay this post is mainly beauty but I'm a nerd, a Harry Potter nerd! I am so in love with this book! No I haven't finished it yet and the reason why is I don't want it to end. God knows when the next one will be so I need to keep holding on! How sad! (God If I have kids I will never let them go haha) Don't spoil it or I will hunt you down and melt all your makeup!

Next is the NYX Liquid Lipsticks In the shade Abu Dhabi I have done a review of these here and this shade had to be in this list! It's honestly so perfect and the lasting powder is amazing. I think I have had this on everyday for weeks! I'm so excited to pick up some more shades for my Birthday in two weeks! 

Another Lipstick now and this one is the Clinique Pop in the shade Bubble Gum Pop. This is a very light shade with not much pigment but it's honestly so lovely! When I'm not wearing my NYX I love to pop this on. It's light but yet it adds something to a minimal look. It's so moisturizing and perfect! If your looking for just a slight pop of colour this is for you!

If I'm going all out with foundation I need a primer and the one I have turned to since it hit the shops is the POREfessional by benefit. It's honestly the best one I have ever used! It always holds my makeup in place and stops it going all cakey in the heat! I would honestly be lost without this in my collection! I have used this all summer and it has saved my butt, a lot!

I love a glow in the summer and this product has been my go to before anything! It's the Simple Illuminating Cream. I am loving the glow this gives me under my foundation! It really gives you a sun kissed look. It's also super moisturizing and even has SPF 15! 

Lastly are two brow products from Benefit and they are: Goof Proof Brow  and Gimme Brow. I got these both as testers and boy am I chuffed! They are amazing! The pencil glides on with such ease and it gives such a detailed brow with no effort. I love Gimme brow as I'm growing my tail out after over plucking (UGH) and this really helps fill in the gaps. I will 100% be getting these again!

Well that is what I'm loving at the moment!

Gemporia Bracelet Review

Friday, August 19, 2016

Hello Hello! How are you all? I have been unwell now for weeks! I thought summer was good for you?! I have had a cold, can't make it up! So I have been a little MIA which has annoyed me so much but the thought of picking up my camera made me want to hide. BUT! I got sent this beautiful bracelet which was the perfect pick me up and today I'm here with a review! The brand this is from is Gemporia, you may have already heard of them! They offer beautiful gemstone jewelry at affordable prices. They don't want to mass produce so their pieces are made in limited runs and they use 100% genuine gemstones and precious metal, I love that!
The piece I got send was a 1/4ct Diamond Sterling Silver Bracelet which costs £39.99 It's so delicate and very feminine! The quality is amazing, it's so well made! It doesn't feel cheap or flimsy, if I'm honest it's the best quality piece I own! I love the design, with a long area full of pretty diamonds, you can never have to many?! I really love how simple this is, it really adds something to any look! I have been loving wearing this everyday! It just goes with everything, even when I'm a bit more grunged out! I tend to wear this on it's own, I find it's enough. I have had so many amazing comments regarding this! Overall I'm super impressed! Everything about this piece is perfect and I can't wait to order some bits from them myself! They have everything a girl could wish for including some stunning rings! Their prices range so you are sure to find something there for yourself or as an extra special gift!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Reivew

Friday, August 12, 2016

Hello, hello! I finally did it! I got myself two NYX liquid lipsticks! I have been waiting ages for a boots near me to have them in and it's happened and honestly, it's dangerous! I was really good, I went for just two as I wanted to test the waters before I went crazy and got all of them! NYX has such a range, I have my eye on their contour palette, dip brow and primers. I feel a spend up on my birthday is needed! On with the review! I got two very different shades. The first is a nude "Abu Dhabi" and the next is a deep purple "Transylvania". I love both dark and nude shades and these two are just perfect! Both are from boots at £5.50
Both the shades are super pigmented, I was really surprised considering the price! They both glide on with such ease, just like using a gloss! The pigment shows instantly so I only needed one coat! I found the nude so easy to apply but the purple a little harder. Only because the pigment was so high I kept over drawing my lips but once I got the hang of it I was fine! The lasting power is around five hours with one touch up which I think is amazing! I didn't have any flaking or bleeding which I was really pleased about! A lot of people have found liquid lipsticks drying, I haven't as of yet but I do always put some lip balm on my lips before bed and I give them a scrub once a week! Overall I am so pleased with these and they were worth the wait! I have my eye on a lovely light pink and more nudes, you can never have to many, right?!

Sephora Face and Lip Mask Review

Friday, August 05, 2016

When I was in Prague I hit Sephora for the first time. I was overwhelmed, excited and confused because I couldn't work out the prices. There are so many amazing bits in there from Dior, Benefit and Too Faced! I spent ages walking around testing everything! In the end I was very good and walked away with a few bits from Benefit and two Sephora masks! I thought today I would give them a little review for you guys!

First up is the Avocado Face Mask which costs £4.52. This mask is to help with sensitive areas and to provide nutrition and moisture. Something my skin needed after flying! In the pack you get a face mask, a full on sheet that goes over your face with space for your eyes, nose and mouth! It comes in another sheet which is full of product. The point of that is it will hold to your face like second skin therefor giving you better results. I have never used one of these before so there was a lot of putting it on and pulling it off but I got there in the end! It wasn't messy to put on at all, it's full of product but that is what you want. I left it on for the full 15 minutes like it said and had a bubble bath. I could feel it getting to work, it was cooling and soothing and very relaxing. I could feel my skin was getting less tight and there was no irritation. After you are finished you just pull it off and rub in any excess into your skin and leave it. My skin felt amazing, it was soft and moisturized. I don't think my skin has ever felt that hydrated, it was lovely and it lasted for days and in that time I topped it up by keeping on top of my skin care! I'm really impressed, it was such a lovely face mask! I even put it back into the sheet then into a sandwich bag and I have used it a few times again, anything to be savvy! 

Next is the Rose Lip Mask which costs only £2.26! This mask says it will moisturize lips and leave them smooth and soft! In contains rose extract which I think sounds lovely! This summer my lips have been so dry! It's really annoying because I thought that was just a winter thing? Anyway this is the same as the face mask above. A sheet in the shape of lips! This was really easy to put on and instantly got to work! It's so cooling! Instantly my lips felt soft, smooth and better! There is a lot of product again and that is what I want! You leave this on for 15 minutes and the best thing, it still lets you talk, eat and drink! After use my lips were so much softer and any dryness was gone! They way I could really tell was with my liquid lipsticks, they went on like a dream and looked amazing for the rest of the day!

Overall I am so pleased with these products, they are worth the money and work wonders! Perfect for popping in your basket when your having a haul!

Things I'm Excited For This Summer

Sunday, July 31, 2016

Summer is well and truly here! I'm not dealing well with the heat! No matter what I wear I'm boiling hot and I just can't get comfy, don't even talk to me about getting sleep! But other than that I'm loving it! I always feel more positive in the summer, I get more stuff done and get up super early. I love getting my dresses out and wearing more colour! I'm so excited for things ahead! Today I thought I would share with you what  I love about summer and what I'm excited for!

The Beach, Honestly this is my favorite place on the earth. No matter what beach, sand or stones I am content. It makes me feel so calm and collected. I'm a water girl and I do get depressed if I haven't seen the sea in a while. I'm not the best swimmer but it's a must that I go in and have a bob! No matter how cold! My dream situation is being sat on the beach when the sun is setting with a berry cider in hand.

Pub Gardens, Nothing beats sitting in a pub garden in the middle of no where having a good drink. It's so relaxing with friends and family. I found a little gem hidden in a forest with a river beside it. It's honestly so perfect! I know I will be spending a lot of time there!

Day Trips, These are the best days. Me and Tim get in the car and go. We don't know where we just drive. We have found some lovely places! I really want to hit West Sussex more, I love it around that area since your so close to the sea but with the countryside. Driving in the sun has to be the best feeling ever with some good music, right?

BBQ, I love a good BBQ and I have become very good myself, lighting and cooking on it! We have had some of the best in the last few years at our friends house. He and his partner are so boohoo so we had it next to a tepee with fairy lights everywhere. Anything that has been on the BBQ tastes so much better! Halloumi is the bomb, trust me!

Ice Cream, Who doesn't like ice cream? I will hunt and find an ice cream van! I love it with every single sauce on it, tastes so good! It's refreshing, light and screams summer in your face!

Scones, I don't think you would believe me that on our honeymoon we had scones twice a day, everyday! They are my favorite summer treat of all time. Mix that with a ice tea and I'm content! Jam first then cream, sorry!

Summer Shades, I'm rocking some coral nails at the moment and loving it! I love all the pinks, orange and blue in at the moment! I never wear them in the winter so it makes a change! There is something about pretty shades that just get you in the summer mood, don't you think?

Country Walks, I love taking a lovely walk in the country when it's warm. I love seeing all the animals and having a picnic! As long as there is fresh lemonade and mini cakes I'm there! It makes you feel so good walking in the summer! It helps with my mental heath and keeps me feeling content!

Afternoon tea, This isn't the same as just scones so it counts! I love going to the farm to their tea rooms, they are always the best ones. Sitting outside and having a range of sandwiches, cakes and maybe a glass of fizz! I don't think you can beat this British classic and it's the perfect summer treat!


For now I'm off to read Harry Potter & The Cursed Child!
