Beauty | Monthly Favourites - March

How am I writing my third monthly favourites already?! This year is going so quick!
I'm already dipping into spring products so here are my favourites that I've been loving this month!
 

 
NYX Suede Lipstick 
Ive already spoken about this in my favourite lipsticks post which you can find [here] but I needed to put it in my favourites because since I bought this I haven't put it down, Ive worn it constant and it is always in my handbag now, I'm seriously going to buy multiples of this lipstick just so I have it backed up and can have one in my dressing table, one in my bag etc. Its such an easy colour to wear and because it isn't expensive I don't feel guilty using it all up, I love it!


 
Nuxe Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm
I wrote a whole blog post on this little beauty! If you want to see a more in depth description click [here] I cannot rave about this enough it is a complete game changer and my favourite product I own to date! I won't go on about it too much because as I said I wrote a huge post on it already haha! 


 
NYX Illuminating Primer
Okay, Another NYX product. Since they've started selling NYX in boots I've loved trying out there products they aren't super expensive but nearly all the products I've used have been such great quality, I really want to try there contour kit next! This primer has been amazing for my skin I haven't found a primer that doesn't flake on my skin even expensive ones but this has been brilliant and it is super radiant which will be great for summer too!


 
Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana Powder
In the last couple of years 'banana powder' has been popping up left, right and centre along with the contour and highlight hype! I really wanted to get some so I could brighten up the under eye area and I am so happy with this one, this works a lot nicer when I have a light tan.


 
Bondi Sands Fake Tan
This is my all time favourite tan! I love using fake tan it boosts my confidence so much. I am so surprised I haven't written about this already. I use the tanning foam in light/medium and this is perfect for that subtle but noticeable tan, It doesn't have that orangey undertone and its the only tan I use that doesn't leave me orange or patchy and it isn't too expensive either, Since trying this tan a little over a year ago I haven't looked back I love it all year round I use it once every two weeks. A definite fave!


 
Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes
These are the most natural most gorgeous eyelashes I've ever used they are so fluttery and pretty! Since I started using them its all I've used, The lash line is invisible so they're the only eyelashes I can wear without eyeliner so these will be a life saver in the summer, Minimal makeup without the compromise :)


They are my current favourites! I can't believe how quick this month has gone! Have you used any of these products? What have you loved this month?

Beauty | Nuxe Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm

It seems a bit ridiculous that I'm writing a blog post entirely about a lip balm BUT recently I was complaining my lips were dry, they were so dry infact they were actually splitting. I do have dry skin  anyway but my lips survived okay through winter and suddenly they were getting really dry. 
I was using lip balm before bed and during the day but for some reason they were dry no matter what and thats not good for someone who loves matte lipsticks like me. So, I jokingly googled best lip balm in the world and this came up straight away and apparently this lip balm gets sold every 28 seconds all over the world! Thats insane! It claimed to do so many things and was tested on the worst coldest conditions and I thought I'd try it, its not the cheapest lip balm in the world but I was sick of spending 3 pound each on different lip balms that I'd use up way too quickly with 0 results.



This has been an absolute savour and I am so glad that I found this little gem! its not a huge amount of money (£9.50) I mean, I'll happily buy a too faced lipstick for £19 but I've never bought a lip balm for more than a few quid so I was worried I'd hate it and potentially waste money but I can honestly say it is amazing I already know I'll buy this forever, it has the best smell it smells like lemon but not in the kitchen cleaner way but in the sweet scent kind, like lemon cheesecake or some sort of lemon dessert. The consistency is beautiful too, Its not oily at all like vaseline and it looks matte on the lips so no mater how much you slather on it just looks like you have super nourished lips instead of it looking like you have 100 layers of lipgloss/grease on your lips! 


Its a pretty solid lip balm but its not hard and waxy like most it has the nicest texture even on your finger it feels so smooth in the tub it feels like velvet its gorgeous! 
This is honestly the best product I've bought in forever Its definitely going into my monthly favourites I am totally obsessed with it I would actually take this over any lipstick and I'm a huge lipstick freak! I'm just gutted I didn't try this product sooner! you can get it from Look Fantastic here



Have you tried this product? I am totally in love with it! Don't forget you can stay up to date by following me on Bloglovin or just click the heart icon in the top left corner of this page all my other social media pages are there too just click on each icon!

Fashion | Transitioning Your Winter Wardrobe Ready for Spring

Spring is pretty much here but I don't think its time just yet to get the bikinis out! We are still in that in-between stage, The suns shining so we don't really want to wear dull colours but its still kind of cold so its that layering kind of weather, to help you out I've made a little list of essentials for a transitional and still stylish wardrobe.


Jewellery 
Okay so we've all been living in black, whites and greys which to be honest I love but when its sunny and the flowers are blooming I love to add a little bit of colour to my wardrobe, just the odd pastel colour, linking with the colour transition I also change my jewellery up.
Instead of steels and silvers I opt for a little rose gold accessory super girly and feminine.
Infact I recently bought a rose gold nose ring which I'm obsessed with and a heart shape ear bar for my faith piercing! Super cute!

Knee High Boots
These for me should be a staple item, I love pairing them with thick jumpers and jeans/tights in winter but theyre still perfect and stylish for spring too! Instead of wearing them with jumpers try pairing them with a cute floral dress/playsuit they dress up any outfit and I definitely think they should stay out for as long as possible!

Jumpers
We're all getting excited at the thought of not having to wear jackets anymore and lapping up the sun but its the UK so we still need some warmth! Jumpers are perfect they are so comfortable and paired with a cute mini skirt or even a maxi skirt still looks super chic and you have the perfect transition piece.

Jeans
One way to slowly add some lighter colour to your wardrobe is to change up your denim, switching the dark jeans to a gorgeous stonewash denim jeans its a small change but definitely a more colourful option you can also opt for frayed styles or cropped jeans for a more spring feel.

Jackets
I loved the big parka jackets in winter but its getting a bit warmer for that now and thankfully less rain! In winter when its not too cold I usually opt for a cool leather jacket so instead of this you could transition the leather jacket it to a denim jacket! I really can see myself getting a collection of denim jackets this season I love them they look super cool and you can also wear denim shirts when its even warmer and you can always go for pastel coloured denim like my pink denim shirt :)

Those are my essentials that I think make the perfect wintery spring wardrobe what do you think? What would you have in yours?

Beauty | Favourite Pink Lipsticks for Spring

I don't know why but lately I'm seriously into the colour pink, I was thinking about just sticking with a sleek monochrome wardrobe this spring I have tons of black ripped shorts I love wearing in summer but I can't help dipping into pastel shades as the season transitions.

 
Now its turning spring we keep getting bursts of cold sunshine which is my favourite! now I've had a hint of sunshine though I keep getting excited for spring colours especially lip colours!
I have tons and tons of lipstick its the one product I constantly continually buy, I do love a nude lip but i definitely lean towards the pinky nudes, I find the brown lip trend a little dull on my skin although it does suit most people! So I thought with my new love of pink things I'd show you my 4 favourite pink lipsticks at the moment!




  
Too Faced Liquid Lipstick in 'Peony'
This is the newest to my collection but I have wanted it since last summer! I kept seeing it online and I looked up some reviews and swatches on YouTube which just made me want it more! This is by far my favourite pink lipstick that I own, The melted lipstick by Too Faced are one of my favourite liquid lipsticks to use they last forever and they smell gorgeous! I love this colour so much Its the perfect pink!




 
YSL 'Rouge Volupté in '32'
I've had this lipstick for ages now and its such a summery pink! Its super bold and quite shimmery but super pigmented usually the more creamy consistency needs building up but this is bright with one swatch! I love it during the summer to add a really nice colour but also keeps my lips super hydrated - it has an amazing summery floral smell which I love.


 
NYX Liquid Suede in 'Tea and Cookies'
I bought this the day after I bought the Too Faced 'Peony' melted lipstick. These are sooooo similar so if you love the peony lipstick like I do this is such a good cheaper option! The applicator is super sturdy like the too faced ones so perfect precision if you have a shaky hand like me, The pay off is the same as peony, the colour is almost the same, the consistency isn't as creamy as the too faced lipstick but its definitely not drying and they are so much nicer to apply than the liquid matte lipsticks NYX also do. This is one of my favourites!



MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in 'Pure Zen'
I much prefer matte lipsticks but saying that this is my most used lipstick I have in my collection. I've had to repurchase it multiple times and even this one is near the end as you can see! Its such a gorgeous colour for everyday and I usually put this on top of my matte nude lipsticks for that pinky creamy finish I love it!




Max factor Matte Lipstick in '20 Rose'
This one is that perfect darker pink which looks gorgeous with a glam outfit! It was so hard to transfer it does not come off!! It dries a lot quicker than the liquid lipsticks only by a matter of seconds. Its matte but it doesn't dry my lips out at all and I really love the application too. This would be the type of pink lip I'd wear for a date night.



Those are my current favourite pink lipsticks perfect for spring! Whats your favourite lip colour to wear in spring?

Lifestyle | The Perfect Little Diary To Stay Organised!

I have always been obsessed with stationary since I was a kid. I loved making lists for everything! 
I purchased this diary in December ready for the new year and I've seen a lot of posts about it but I wanted to use it for a couple of months to see if the novelty wore off after a while or if I would use it as much as I thought I would because lets face it phones are everything nowadays
The diary is from Feel Unique it has actually helped me out massively this year!  I love that it comes with stickers to really help organise everything from date nights to brow appointments is has stickers for everything which I find most helpful.


 


The way its set out is perfect, each month has a new positive quote and you can find different ones throughout the weeks too.It has different discount codes each month for Feel Unique which is amazing, it also has a spending and saving section to keep track of your money too! 
My favourite part of this diary is at the back is has a beauty wish list I'm always jotting bits down that I want beauty wise and I must admit I use this section probably the most!

I consider myself a pretty organised person to be honest however, I haven't always been organised but with cute little stationary like this its hard not to be organised when its made so easy and I actually love jotting little bits down and ticking things off its quite therapeutic.

Beauty | Look Fantastic Beauty Box - March

LookFantastic Beauty Box - MARCH 

If you haven't seen my other posts, I'm signed up to a beauty subscription box by LookFantastic.
I bought the 12 month subscription as it works out cheaper and I have honestly been so happy with it so far and I'm so glad I didn't go for the 1 month version because this months box is definitely my favourite!
 
This months box is the 'Elle Edition' First of all this looks so sleek and smart! I've always been a fan of Elle magazine, it was the only magazine I used to buy when I was younger, you also get one with each box that gets sent to you and heres what came in the box this month.

 
St Tropez Instant Tan Gloss
This at first I wasn't sure about, I LOVE Fake Tan but I've never used or even wanted to use 'Wash Off' tan and it said gloss which scared me a bit. However this stuff is amazing for photos! Outfit blog photos I mean, It gives the most gorgeous glowy sheen to your legs and I am going to get so much use out of this in the summer! perfect summer product!

 
Starskin Smoothing Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Eye Mask
What a long title! I love any type of soothing treatment for under my eyes I haven't used these yet but I am sooooo excited to I'm saving them for a pamper night! They sound and feel amazing though!

 
Heatcure Redken Intensive Conditioning Treatment 
This is insane! I've used self heating face masks before, but I've never even heard of self heating hair conditioner! It came with a super easy step by step guide on how to use it too!

 
Pür Concealer
This is a solid creamy concealer, it dries super quickly and blends really nicely, I always make sure I'm super moisturised whenever I use these types of concealers as their quite thick, I used to use the benefit boing! concealer but I prefer this one I think! 

 
Caudalíe 3in1 Moisturizer 
This is gorrrrrrgeous! The consistency is beautiful! One thing I've definitely loved in these boxes is the moisturisers there has been a number of moisturisers from LookFantastic and I have dry skin so I genuinely have loved every single one so far! 

 
Skin Chemists London 24hr Aqua Repair Facial Serum
This stuff! This is by far my favourite product of the box I think. I use this after the previous product I just mentioned before I go to sleep and it honestly makes my skin feel soooooo soft I love it, This is definitely one of those products I don't ever want to run out of!

I'm so happy with my boxes so far! 100% worth every penny! You can see the previous months [here] Do you have any monthly subscriptions? What ones would you recommend?

Beauty | Monthly Favourites - February

Okay, Its that time of the month not that one! but my monthly favourites!  I've found a couple of new things that I've loved this month!

 

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Mask
This face mask I only bought at the start of the month and I instantly love it, it helped my blemishes so much and it left my skin glowy too! I usually have to have two different for face masks to do this and now I have it in one. This smells just like lemonade it's so weird but fresh and you can really feel it working! 

 
The Ordinary Natural Moisturiser 
This is the thickest most luxurious moisturiser I've ever used my makeup sits so much nicer on my face after I've used this!

 
The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner
I love anything for my skin if it has tea tree in it! This is similar to the lush tea tree toning water it smells sooo strong but this really works fast and has become my new fave. 
 
MoroccanOil Hair Oil Treatment
This stuff smells BEAUTIFUL I put it on before I wash my hair and after it's washed (while it's wet) and sometimes when my hairs dry I use this on little flyaway or after I've styled my hair to make it sleek and smelling beautiful! I love this stuff!

 
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil
This has been a favourite for a while and I literally only ever use this on my brows nothing else - I love it! 
 
Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner 
This is another solid favourite of mine, I've tried all kinds of liquid eyeliners and even been influenced by other bloggers/youtubers and realised that this is the ONLY eyeliner I will ever use, it's lasting power is amazing, it's super black and most of all it's so easy to use! I can only get a neat winged liner using this! Looooove! 

That's my February Favourites! I got into mainly skincare this month with lots of free make up days! What's been your go to this month?

Lots of Love
