Must Have Monday!

IMG_3706.JPG

I’ve been so excited to share this post with you!

Recently I have been so in love with this product! I love the shade of colour and it stays on all day! What more could I want from a lipstick?

The boyfriend and I went to Canterbury today and I decided that I would wear this and I’m so happy that I did. It stayed on even after eating lunch and drinking coffee. So it’s a solid 10/10 from me! 

I’ve had this lipstick for a while but it wasn’t till I was talking to someone at work about it that I decided to get it out and give it a proper try out. I always feel so much more confident when I’ve got lipstick on so it was definitely a nice confidence boost for me today!

Go Go GO GO! Buy it! You will not regret it. (FYI This post is not sponsored)

Enjoy the rest of your Easter Monday!

Must Have Monday!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

As of this week (I’ve seen a few bloggers do this and I wanted to try too) I will be starting a new series where I will pick one product that I love and would love to recommend to you. None of these posts are sponsored (thought, in many ways I wish they were) unless otherwise stated!

It’s certainly no secret that I’m a through and through coffee lover! It’s only fitting that I have a selection of various syrups in my kitchen. I would say for the past four months I’ve been absolutely loving adding vanilla syrup into my coffee’s.

I would love to know what you think of these types of posts. So that’s it for this weeks Must Have Monday!

I hope that you’ve had a great start to your week. 🙂

Five Things I’m Loving This January.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I thought I would start doing a roundup of my top 5 products of each month to share with you all. So here are my top five from January.

Nivea – Powder Touch

I’ve loved this product for a good year and a half. It’s one of those products that I re-purchase time and time again. I originally bought it for using after going to the gym but I loved how it smelt and how it left my underarms feeling I decided that I would use it on an everyday basis.

It’s a very reasonable priced product for what it does and I would highly recommend it if you are wanting an antiperspirant that doesn’t feel like you have to apply more throughout the day!

Curl Jelly by Umberto Giannini

I’ve used this product for a few fair months now and I have to say I love what it does to my hair. I’ve always hated how curly my hair is and I’ve struggled to find a product that enhances my curls in a way that I like. I found this product in Boots when I was with my friend and I thought that I would give it a go. I have to say, I’m so glad that I gave it a chance. I will definitely be re-purchasing this time and time again. It leaves me hair feeling clean and full of life. It’s not too heavy on my hair that it weighs it down but is just enough that the curls fall nicely. I’m so pleased with the way my hair feels already.

Clean & Clear – Blackhead Clearing

I was very unsure about this product at first but after using it persistently I’ve really began to see the effects. I often get quite a few blackheads around my nose area and this product has pretty much cleared them up.

Boots – Tea Tree Witch Hazel with Berry facial Scrub

I’ve been looking for a decent facial scrub for a while now and a friend recommended that I give this one a go. I’m glad that I did because it works so well with my skin.

What products did you love during January?

My Winter Look.

Welcome to Blogmas day 20!

Winter days are for wrapping up warm and cozy. This is the look i’ve been rocking for the past month. Cozy scarf, Christmas jumper and curly(ish) hair.

I’m really getting excited for Christmas now. It’s really creeping up fast.

Over the next few days I have a couple of last things to do and then I will be officially ready for Christmas.

Tomorrow is my last day at work till the 30th December. I’m really looking forward to having some time off.

Are you already for Christmas?

Festive Nails.

Welcome back to Blogmas day 10.

I don’t know about you but I’m so excited for Christmas! We’ve only got 14 more days to go!

Today I want to share with you the nail varnishes that I picked up from Superdrug for this Christmas. Now, unfortunately, I work in a place where I’m not able to wear nail polish to work. Therefore when I have a few days off from work, I really make an effort to paint my nails at any chance I get.

I’ve really been looking forwards for shops to bring out their Christmas ranges of Christmas nail colours. I’m in love with these two!

These are my two Christmas colours for this year!

What colour nails will you be wearing this Christmas?

What’s In My Bag.

Welcome to the 2nd day of Blogmas!

Did you read day 1? Click here to catch up.

For today’s post I would like to share with you what I have in my bag over the winter time. It’s gotten so cold in England recently. It’s definitely hat, scarf and gloves weather!

I’ve really been into reading this year. I’m actually proud of the amount of books that I’ve read. Last week I started reading Christmas at Little Street Bakery. I’m loving it so far! I tend to read a lot when I’m on the bus to and from work or when I go into town.

I have been carrying my ‘happiness diary’ around in my bag too. I find that it’s great for those days that I’m struggling a little bit more. It helps keep me focused. I’ve had times during the day where I have felt down and I’ve re-focused myself by taking a few minutes out of my day to re-read my current goals.

Umbrella, what can I say? It rains a lot in the UK!

Victoria secret body spray. I love the smell of this!

And last but certainly not least, my phone and headphones. I can’t leave the house without them!

Thats pretty all the things I’ve been carrying around in my bag this autumn/winter.

What are some of the things you’ve been carrying around with you this winter?

As always, thank you very much for reading. I will see you tomorrow with a new Christmas themed post.

GRWM – Autumn Edition.

Happy Friday! Today I would like to share with you my Autumn get ready with me. I like particularly like Autumn because I can wear cuddly jumpers, drink hot chocolate and sit propped up against the radiator reading a good book.

I recently picked up this green minimalism jumper from H&M! As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect Autumnal jumper to wear with a pair of black skinny jeans!

As for makeup, I’ve been going for a natural look using my Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette. I’ve found that the days where I want to wear a stronger makeup look I have been using more of the dark shades in the palette to create a darker crease.

As for my lips I’ve been such a big fan of this velvet matte lipstick crayon that I picked up from Primark. It’s such a beautiful natural look and is perfect for those days when I don’t want to wear a strong colour on my lips.

On my nails I’ve been really loving wearing Barry M’s Gelly Shine Nail Paint in the shade dark green. It’s the perfect shade of green for the autumn time.

My Everyday Makeup Essentials.

I’ve been changing up my makeup routine a lot recently. I’ve been using new eyeshadows and techniques. I’ve really been enjoying applying my makeup!

So here’s what products I’ve been using near enough everyday.

I’m pretty lucky that I’ve got pretty good skin therefore I don’t usually have to apply a lot of foundation. Most days I find myself only applying Collections ‘lasting perfection concealer.‘ It really brightens my face. 🙂

On the days that I do wear foundation I have been using Rimmel’s ‘Wake Me Up’ foundation. I’m really happy with how this feels on my face, it doesn’t feel too heavy and it lasts a decent amount of time.

I’m currently using Zoella’s ‘no filter needed’ makeup bag.

For eyeliner I’m currently using Etude House’s ‘play 101’ eye pencil. I’m not sure that this is available in the UK, I bought it when I was away in South Korea.

On my eyebrows I’m currently using Too Cool for School’s Glam Rock eyeshadow. I find that this is a great shade for my brows.

On my lashes I’m currently using Collections ‘Supersize Fat Lash’ mascara. I couldn’t find a link to the one that I bought. It should be still available in Superdrug as I bought it not that long ago. To be honest, I’ve used better mascara’s, but this is working well for me at the moment! In the future I think that I will consider getting a mascara from Urban Decay.

On my lips I’ve been using the Barry M’s ‘Matte Me Up’ lipstick. I’m in love with this colour. I think that it goes great with my complexion. I find that it lasts all day even after meal times.

So that’s it! Those are all the products I’m currently using. I’m always on the lookout for new products to try. If you’ve got any suggestions, let me know. 🙂

Hope you’re all having a great Monday!

My Self-Care Evening.

A big part of recovery is self care. Self-care is something that I don’t do enough of. I tend to just ignore it and disregard it as either being lazy, or unproductive.

The problem with this way of thinking is I tend to burn out more easily. I become agitated and stressed.

Over the past week or so I have been working through the documentation that I received from my last sessions of CBT at the beginning of the year. I set some small and manageable goals to work on over the course of the week. One of the goals was to have a self-care evening. So as Friday evening approached, I decided to take the evening off and just relax.

Having bought myself some Lush products earlier in the week. I decided to run myself a bath and I spent the next hour or so catching up on some reading.

How do you spend your self-care evenings? ❤

GRWM – England Spring Ed.

It’s Monday, my favourite day of the week. A day for new beginnings. Maybe a new outfit, or two. Maybe a new makeup style, or hair do. Today I wanted to share kind of a different post with you. (I hope that’s okay) I mean, I’ve posted a couple of these types of posts in the past and I really enjoy writing them.

So today I present you with an England (because England is mostly cold) spring edition of GRWM. I hope you enjoy.

I love wearing dungarees. They are so summery and comfortable.

I tend to feel quite self conscious about my body. But I hope by posting these types of posts I can learn to accept my body for how it is.

This spring I’m wanting to try wearing different types of clothes. I’m wanting to try different makeup styles.

For this look I have used the Urban Decays Naked 2 Basic Palette. I think I bought this for about £24.

I have used the colour ‘frisk’ all over my eyelid.

‘Primal’ in the crease.

I then took the darkest colour ‘undone’ and used it as a eyeliner and just lined the top lash line.

I then used the colour ‘stark’ and placed that in the inner section of my eye. I blended all the colours together so there is a nice transition between the colours.

Finally I took the colour ‘skimp’ and used it to highlight my brow bone.

I’ve had this palette for about 2 months now. I am IN LOVE with it. This is the palette I use to do my everyday makeup. I look the looks that you can create with it.

As always, thank you for reading. ❤

What is your favourite outfit to wear in Spring?
