As a massive thank you to those who have participated in either dry January or Veganuary (or both) and give you a chance to win a Mac lipstick and lipliner of your choice. I have cut alcohol from my diet for over a year now and I couldn't feel better. I'm also trying to eat a lot less meat and dairy and when I eat a plant-based meal I feel 10 times better, so my main goal is to become vegan by the end of this year!

The rules of the giveaway are as follows:
- you must over the age of 16 or have parental consent to enter.
- if you unfollow/undo an action you will lose your entry.
- you must use a valid email address for me to contact you if you're a winner.
- if you show any negativity/hate towards myself or anyone participating you will be disqualified.
- Have fun! This giveaway is open to everyone & is international.


Good luck to everyone! I wish you all the best! ❤️

*This giveaway is not associated with MAC and the prize will be funded with my own money.

Lots of love,

I finally joined the bandwagon and bought the L.A. Girl Pro Concealer, it only took me a couple of years haha... A new beauty shop opened up recently in the city so of course I had to go in and see what they were selling! To my surprise, I found a lot of L.A. Girl products as well as Milani and many others. I believe these retail at £3.50 so I thought I'd go for the lightest shade (obviously) and a slightly darker shade to use as a contour shade.

The shades I went for are 'Toast' and 'Porcelain'. At only £3.50 each, these are very affordable and come in a large variety of shades for all skin tones. The formula is very thick and creamy which is great if you're after a full coverage concealer however, it is quite hard to blend out and I find that there isn't a lot of product in the tubes which is disappointing but what can you expect for a product that costs £3.50?

Here are the concealers swatched on the back of my hand. I'm wearing fake tan in this picture hence why the lighter shade looks so bright, but I must admit that it is still light enough to use to highlight my face when I'm not wearing any fake tan. I find the contour shade a little bit harder to blend unless I use a wet beauty sponge and then set it with a powder contour.

Overall, I think that these are worth giving a go as they blend out nicely and the colour range is big so there's something for everyone. On the other hand, it did annoy me that I had used the product once and half the tube was gone, but it was cheap and should last a fair amount of time.

You're probably wondering about the giveaway - well, I decided to give away an L.A. Girl Pro Concealer to 5 lucky readers! The rules are as follows:

1. You must be 16+ years of age to enter.
2. Giveaway accounts will not be entered into the giveaway.
3. All accounts must be public, otherwise I will not be able to contact you if you're the winner.

Good luck to all!

MAC Lipstick Giveaway

Good Morning Everyone!

To make everyone's Easter holidays even better, I decided to host another MAC lipstick giveaway like I had done so a year ago. The giveaway includes one MAC lipstick of your choice worth £15.50. This giveaway will last one month and the winner will be announced a day after closing. You can contact me for any extra information on my email which is linked below!

This is my amazing and constantly growing MAC lipstick collection. 
From left-right: Ultra Darling, Behave Yourself, Which Witch, Velvet Teddy, Lavender Whip, Rose Lily, Play Time, Flamingo, Brave, Party Line, Rebel, Up The Amp, The Fashion Flock, Gaga, Arianna Grande, Miley Cyrus, Miley Cyrus 2, Only You, All Fired Up, and Darling Clementine. This is minus my 5 lipglosses and one lipliner. Unfortunately I had lost my Spirit lippy and Whirl lipliner on a recent night out which I was really upset about as I had the lipstick for over a month and the liner for less than two weeks!!! :(

The Rules:
1. Those under the age of 16 should seek parental approval.
2. Those who follow-unfollow just to give a notification will be disqualified.
3. You can only enter this giveaway through one account. Those who will use multiple accounts will be disqualified.
4. If you do not respond within 48 of becoming the winner, a new winner will be announced.
5. This giveaway will last for 31 days and will end on the 30th April 2016. The entries made after e.g. Tweets about the giveaway will not be included.

Good luck everybody!

Beauty Giveaway

Hi everyone!

I hope you all know how much I appreciate you spending your time reading my posts and leaving comments, always being so devoted and caring! I thought I'd treat a lucky gal/guy to a few products through a new giveaway! It is worth nearly £52 so I think I've done well with providing all these items with my own money!! This giveaway will only last around a week as I am planning on creating a new one in December which will be more festive than this one!

So as you can see there's a variety of products in this giveaway which includes the following:
- 3 pairs of patterned socks from New Look
- Roll on perfume in 'Pure Dusk' from New Look
- Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette in 'Iconic 3'
- MUA eyebrow kit in 'Dark'
- MUA brick highlighter in 'Iridescent Gold'
- Wella Professionals Moisturising Hair Treatment Mask
- Eyelure false eyelashes in 'Double Lashes'
- LE Christmas 2015 Minnie Mouse from Disney Store

So as you guys can see, there's a few things to be won which are (well, should be) everyones favourites! Even if you wouldn't keep the products for yourself they would make great Christmas stocking gifts! I especially love the eyeshadow palette and will definitely be getting one for myself soon! 

Good luck to everyone! 'May the odds be ever in your favour'!! 

Lots of love,
