2016 || May Favourites

Hi Lovelies! 

May was a crazy month for me. I had my end of year exams and the weather had its ups and downs. However, this does not mean that I didn't have any beauty favourites! This month I've mainly been loving Makeup Revolution products but I tried not to include too many haha!

The things I've been loving in May 2016:
-Makeup Revolution Salted Caramel Palette £8
-Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Cream £8
-Makeup Revolution Contour Kit £3.50
-MAC Paint Pot in Painterly £16
-MAC Brook Candy Edition Matte Lipstick in Whirl £17

What have you loved in May?

Lots of love,

2016 || April Favourites

Hi Everyone!

I know it's sooo late for an April favourites post, but you should be grateful that there is one at all hahaha!! I bought loads of Benefit products in April so I thought I'd dedicate this post to the brand (NOT sponsored). 

So as you can see I went all out and bought nearly every single travel-sized product that Benefit does. As Boots had an offer on the minis (4 for £15 + free makeup bag) I bought 8 products from the offer and one travel-sized Hoola bronzer which was £9.95.

I absolutely love every single product I had bought, especially the baby sized Hoola! I definitely recommend all these product for those who are travelling light this year or want to save space in their makeup bags!

Have you tried any of the products mentioned above? What's your favourite?

Lots of love,

2015 || September Favourites

Hey guys!

Most of you already know that I am a massive tea drinker and I've previously reviewed Clipper's tea here. As September is such a dreary month, I've been drinking more tea. I'm a big fan of green and herbal teas, especially in the morning while I'm getting ready or at night before bed. 

Lemon green tea are very refreshing to have in the morning and because it has caffeine it will wake you up instantly. If you find green tea a bit bitter, you can always use a sweetener or one teaspoon of sugar for added taste. I would recommend using honey instead of sugar just because it tastes nicer and is healthier. :)

You could also add a slice of lemon or orange for extra taste. I love putting slices of lemon, orange and a couple of mint leaves in filtered water as it's a good cleanser for your system and gets rid of unhealthy toxins!
This tea retails at around £3.00. I bought it on offer for only £1.00 which is a complete bargain for 80 tea bags.
The Snore&Peace tea is very calming and sends you off to sleep. It is especially useful for people who share a room and feel like they are disrupting the other person with their snoring as this tea helps to clear out the nasal cavity, enabling the person to breathe through their nose without snoring. It is very tasty, and I highly recommend it to those who have snoring problems or are just after a peaceful night.

Have you tried any of these teas? If so, what did you think of them?

Lots of love,

2015 || June Favourites

Hello Beauty Lovers!
Last month I've been loving everything to do with hair dye! I had three different colours in June - from blonde to grey and then to pink. You can read about my journey with grey hair here. All the products in this post have been bought at Poundworld - yes you are reading this right!!
Firstly, the eylure eyelashes are one of my favourite pairs I have ever bought, and believe me when I say that I've used a lot of pairs in my life! I can't believe they were at my local poundworld!! I will definitely buy more pairs next time I see them. They look great on and feel like feathers as they are very light weight. 

The Jerome Russell lighting spray has actually worked well since the first use. I can see a change in my hair colour and it looks as if I had recently put in some highlights. I would highly recommend this product if you have light hair and are after a balayage effect.

It was the first time I have come across the Kinky Curly Straight brand and I must say that I am beyond impressed with the quality of the conditioner and the ingredients are mostly natural unlike other brands. It has a variety of oils which are good for your hair and full of nutrients. I will definitely buy the whole collection next time.

The Mellors&Russell simply bright hair dye in pink is actually quite effective. I wouldn't say it was amazing and the colour didn't come out as I was expecting, this however could be due to my hair not being light enough, but it's a good product for the price and is worth buying if you already have very light or bleached hair ready for some colour.

On the other hand, their simply bright non permanent colouring conditioner has worked a bit better on my hair leaving it with a nice pinky-peach colour. I have although kept it on for only 5 minutes rather than the recommended 15, so I guess the longer you keep the dye on the better the result. 

Have you tried any of those products? If yes then please mention which ones in comments below!

Lots of love,
