Birchbox May 2016

For those of you unsure about Birchbox, it is a UK monthly subscription box service that costs £12.95 a month. Each month you receive 5 product samples plus occasional full price products from a huge range of beauty based brands. May’s box, ‘For The Dreamers…’, was my first Birchbox and I was very excited when it arrived. When I signed up, I had the extra luxury of adding a Cynthia Rowley Beauty black eyeliner, worth £11, to the order for free.…

June Wishlist

I am off to Thailand on Sunday and I am in saving mode for becoming a student once again so my spending will not be as extravagant this month. But if I do have some spare cash lying about and fancy treating myself this is what I would buy: Makeup Geek eyeshadows, £4.95 each in: Rapunzel – a light, peachy champagne with metallic finish. Pillow Talk – a soft lilac shade with a silver, shimmery finish. I already have quite a…

Boots Haul

I’m soon to be a skint student so I am in saving mode. This is not great for my spending addiction though, so I made the conscious decision to spend some of my Boots points. Here is what I purchased: Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer £7.99. I’ve heard great things about this under eye concealer and I’m yet to find a concealer that works for my stubborn dark circles, so here is hoping this will work a treat! Maybelline Colour Tattoo £4.99. Sticking…

May Favourites

How can it be the end of May already? 2016 is passing too quickly. Saying that though, there is nothing I enjoy more than reading what everyone’s favourites are for the month. I don’t have many favourites this month as I haven’t mixed up my routine too much but I do have a few beauty and hair products I have been loving, with some random products thrown in too. MAKE UP Makeup Revolution Affirmation Eyeshadow Palette £8. This little gem is…

Beauty Blogger Tag

If you haven’t already guessed, I was tagged to take part in the Beauty Blogger Tag. I was fortunate enough to be nominated by both Jessica Jade and The Girl With No Face! If you haven’t already, go check out their blogs. They are lovely and they have the blogs to match. I was asked a series of 10 questions by each lady associated with beauty and blogging with a couple random questions also thrown in. Since I have quite a lot to…

April Favourites

April was such a fast month. I can’t believe it is now May but that means a monthly favourites! These are the items that I have been reaching for all month. MAKE UP: BECCA Jaclyn Hill Skin Perfector – Champagne Pop, £32. It’s not a surprise that this highlighter is a favourite due to the hype around it. If you’ve never heard of this, where have you been? I’ve spoken about this highlighter before so I won’t go into depth on it…

May Wishlist

I planned my whole day around taking photos for a blog post on my April Favourites, only to find out my camera battery was flat. Blogger problems? So instead, I thought I would give you a glimpse into the beauty and fashion products that I would love to get my hands on in May. Let’s just jump straight in: Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick – Iced Mocha, £9.50. Like everyone else, I am a huge fan of matte lipsticks, especially those in…
