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! …

happiness...with a journal

Happiness....everyone has their own view of what makes them happy, whether that's an object, a person or even something they have done/achieved that makes them happy .It could be the smallest of things, but how do you know if you are really happy?

well..i thought i was, then i realised that i wasn't so i decided to make some changes, on major one being my job that i had worked in for nearly 11 years.
so for 2017, i can truly say that I've never been happier! changing my job was the best thing i did! i never realised how unhappy i really was...and  i was unhappy for a long time.
now, I'm not one for change..in fact i hate it! but I've come to learn that change CAN be a good thing. and i now appreciate changes...abit more anyways!!
it was a massive thing for me to leave my job, i had known the place inside out for years and i knew my surroundings..and i got way to comfortable being in my little bubble that i thought i would always be in because i was too scared to ch…
