january favourites

My January favourites, it might be a little late but I'm still going to post what i was loving in January :) i don't know about you but i think January flew by this year!



 lip stick- this is one of my ultimate favourite Mac pink lipsticks! its in the shade peach blossom. Ive had invisaligns in for a year so normal lipstick was sometimes a little difficult to wear as it would manage to rub onto my retainer! but now they are off i have gone to back to it and I'm so happy about it! its been a favourite of mine for a long time!


Mascara- roller lash, the best mascara! i did have lashes for a long time but whilst I'm on a break Ive gone back to my trusty mascara! it grabs every single hair, lengthens them and gives them volume!



Too faced peach glow- Ive mentioned this in a previous post, definitely something i have been reaching out for a lot. its a contour, highlight and blush palette and it is just beautiful!


Perfume- now i have 2 favourites for jan, i couldn't decide o…

top 3 make up items ( that i can't live without!)

Following on from my top 3 beauty products that cant live with out! i thought i would do a make up one!
I found this one a little harder just picking 3 but when i really thought about what makes the most difference to me or what i wouldn't leave the house without having on- i found it easier ha ha!


lasting perfection concealer - so my first one would have to be concealer! the one brand that never lets me down is the collections lasting perfection concealer. No matter how much sleep i get i still seem to get dark circles under my eyes!  i have tried a few different brands and this is most definitely the best one i have found! dark circles- be gone!  it's a nice consistency and doesn't crease underneath the rest of your make up so its lasts. they cover any blemishes i have, so if you want that 'no make up look' on days where your not doing much but still want a little something on to make you look a little brighter then this concealer is perfect! Something that i rea…

3 beauty products i can't live without!

We all have certain beauty products that we cannot live without! and i for one have some holy grails that i absolutely swear by! my skincare regime is pretty simple really! i do add other products to my regime but these products are the ones that i never miss! I would say my skin is combination, i get some oily patches but also dry. but i would say its fairly normal!

these products, are my little gems that i have used for quite a few years now! i do try other products but i do tend to stick to these especially la roche posay as i find nothing else is as good! now i say my skin is pretty normal but last year it did go through a weird stage and that's when i knew that these were my definite saviours to sort my skin out! i think i was trying out a new face wash, i cant remember which one exactly it was but that was when i started to get a few problems with my skin- that's all i can think of that it was. i started getting a few spots under my jaw line, which ended up clusters on b…

my winter staples

I might be a little late to the party considering winter has been here for a while! but better late than never and it is still winter!
in the colder months there are certain beauty products that are my saviours that i use every single day in the winter.
I think its important to really look after your skin throughout the year, but definitely in the winter with the harsh cold weather on your skin can make it pretty dry. So keeping my skin soft and well moisturised is most definitely a MUST - who wants dry skin?!

Body cream- the one brand that never fails me are the bath and body works Shea creams, they are super moisturising, they leave your skin so soft and they smell amazing! and the fragrance really lingers. my favourite part about these besides the gorgeous scents are the fact they aren't sticky! i love a bath at night time and there is nothing worse then getting into bed feeling all tacky after moisturising! they soak into your skin really quickly, so you don't get that tac…

superdrug vitamin E cleanser- definitely worth a try!

I've been on the hunt for a drugstore brand cleanser to try and after having a little mooch in the shops i came across the vitamin E range from superdrug! i have heard a few good things about other products from this range but i wanted to give the cleansers a go. considering i love an oil and a hot cloth cleanser- i thought why not?!
 I'm normally a high end brand girl when it comes to cleansing,  but i wanted to see if there were other products out on the market that were similar! i know that not everyone likes to spend alot of money on skincare, so i thought i would trial and test these and i must say...they didn't disappoint!

Not only are they lovely products but they are extremely affordable! if you tried this range, and not realising how much they cost, i think you would be extremely shocked and surprised! the cleansing oil is only £2.99 and the hot cloth cleanser is £4.99- bargains if i say so myself!  Even if you are on the strictest of budgets you can afford g…

inika light reflect cream (highlight) review!

what is the brand inika? Inika  are a certified organic, 100 % natural, mineral, botanical,vegan, cruelty- free, non-toxic makeup brand. they do all ranges of makeup for those who love all of the natural products! which i think is great for those who love the natural brands.

The product i want to talk about it is the light reflecting cream which is used to enhance and brighten your features, for example; your cheekbones or brow and eye area!



 I got this little gem in my feel unique 12 day advent calendar! which a friend got me as a gift :)  I had never actually heard about this brand before, but im so glad i do now!.

The advent calendar seemed to of been really good for it its value of money, as this product alone retails at £19 and its full size...result! Although being full size, it is a small tube, which some reviews have said they were disappointed with the price for the size it is, BUT a little really does a go a long way! you literally need a tiny amount! I've used mine f…

why professional over highstreet? (hair care)

As a hairdresser i get asked a lot about the best shampoo's you can buy in a high street store! and my answer to that? NONE.
I always advise my clients to go for professional shampoo. Most of the time the response we get is " but high street brands are a lot cheaper" and yes there is a reason for that...they are full of crap! i wont go into the science part but they have a lot of  harsh chemicals in them that do nothing good for your locks!. You are basically pouring plastic on your hair, alot of the cheaper brands have a lot of silicone's in them, which might lead you to think that its making your hair lovely and soft, but your just coating it and not actually, cleansing your hair ...so then it gets greasy and itchy quick?... i wonder why!

 We do not recommend professional products to gain the money, we actually care about your hair!
they don't have the harsh chemicals in them that the cheaper brands have in. If you colour your hair they don't strip it out! …
