Beauty Things I Suck At | Tag

This tag has been going around the internet for a really long time now and apparently Fleur De Force and Ingrid Nilsen Nilsen made this tag? I think, either way you can watch their video on what are their beauty things they suck at by clicking here.

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint | Review

I bought this nail polish a couple of months ago in Boots when I was on a shopping haul spree and I fell instantly in love with it. It's such a beautiful colour (I own it in shade 430 pink punch), and it's just been a great colour for my nails this summer. It's a beautiful bright fuchsia pink that leaves your nails in an extra glossy shine in just one coat.

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation | Review

As you can tell from the title this is going to be another review today, but I've been wanting to do this review for a really long time but every time I planned to something had came up so I am finally getting around to editing this blog post and putting it up.

My Summer Wardrobe Essentials

These are my summer time wardrobe essentials for holidays, or for summer time if you live somewhere that's going to get hot in the summer. These are just my summer wardrobe essentials, it's not what you have to have in your wardrobe.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures | Review

AD | You may have seen already on my instagram that I did a tiny review on these products already but I loved them so much and I thought I would do a more detailed one about them all as it was requested by a couple of you. 

A couple of weeks ago Garnier got in touch with me and asked if I would like to try their New Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures and Honey Bee Propolis products, since I've never heard of them before (probably because they were new), I said yes.

Barry M ShowGirl Mascara | Review

I didn't actually even know about this mascara if I am honest until my lovely husband Phil surprised me and bought it for me, and he made a wonderful choice. 

This is one of the best mascaras I have ever used and owned in my make up collection since I started using make up.

Meet Phil | The Boyfriend Tag

I've been tagged in The Boyfriend Tag, well I don't have a boyfriend but I do have a husband so I ropped him into doing this tag with me as he's been my boyfriend in the past obviously so I think it's pretty much the same.

Glossy Box | July 2015

As you may have guessed this month's Glossy Box is beautifully French themed, and as a lot of you probably know already I adore everything about this months box!

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet | Review

AD | I received an email last week from Dior asking me if I would like to review their "Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette", and as a Dior fan, I obviously said yes! 

A couple of days later I received a sample bottle of Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette and opened it straight away. I usually wait a little while with perfumes as I like to usually use a perfume at a time when a company asked me do a review but I was so excited to try this one as I had never used or smelt it before.

Perfect Summer Cocktails

Summer is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate than a good ole' fashioned bbq party? I plan on having one for my birthday in July! So what better way to cool down in the summertime than quick, simple and cheap home-made cocktails! 

Mix up your drinks repertoire this summer with these summer cocktails that are a doddle to make. Tip: for the shaken ones, simply use a clean jam jar with a lid.

George 'Cut-out Shoulder Dress' | Review

Summer is here and it's time to get our legs out in dresses and skirts. I loved this dress the first time I saw it. It's not really something that I would usually buy so I thought I could take a chance and buy it to see what it is like, and for only £10 I really couldn't go wrong. When it came in the post (which surprisingly only took three days) I had bought three other dresses and two skirts and other bits but I actually loved this so much I wore it right away!

My Morning Facial Routine | Summer 2015

AD | I'm going to be talking you all through my skincare routine today. This blog post has been requested so many times since doing my morning skincare routine last year and I hadn't changed much back then so I didn't want to do an updated one until now. I am going to be doing an updated morning routine for you all too (as it's also been requested so much!) which is going to be up on my blog sometime next week (I think!) so don't forget to come back and check if you want to see that. 

This skincare routine is best for my skin. I don't usually buy high-end designer skin care products as my skin is so sensitive and red that I have wasted so much money in the past buying and trying products that were wrong for me, so now I stick to high-street products and this skincare routine actually works a lot better for my skin. 
I think everything in my morning skincare routine, other than the Nivea Creme, has changed since last year so let's get into it...

BirchBox | July 2015

I was so excited this afternoon when the postman dropped off a parcel for me, and even more excited when I seen that it was my BirchBox. This month BirchBox have swapped the box for a bag, and I personally think they are awesome! They are great to take to the beach, or the park, or on holiday and I love that they are coloured see-through decent sized bags which you can hold a good amount of stuff in them, and they are just perfect for the summer weather.

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara | Review

AD |,Unlike some other volumising mascaras that only create volume at the base, new False Lash Effect Mascara wraps each lash right to the tip for a false lash effect. Max Factor's biggest ever brush with 50% more bristles gives a sweep of never-ending volume for a glamorous look you never thought your own lashes could give you. False Lash Effect's biggest brush ever doubles lash size appearance vs. bare lashes. Patented Liquid Lash™ formula coats lashes from root to tip, no flaking or smudging gives lovely lash confidence. It's ophthalmologically tested! 

Mason Summer Glass Jars | Review

I saw these on Home Bargains Instagram photo post they did and just had to go out and buy some. I bought two baby pink coloured ones and two baby blue coloured ones. These are just perfect for those lazy, hot summer days and nights; these iconic mason jar glasses feature the classic screw top design, ensuring that you can easily grip your beverage, and focus on enjoying yourself. 

Emmi Caffe Latte Cappuccino | Review

If you read my monthly favourites for May you'll know that I was loving the Starbucks mocha and caramel latte drinks (the glass bottled ones) and I must admit I loved them so much that I didn't think I could find anything even has close to as good as them but I was in Tesco and they had sold out of the Starbucks drinks (I was gutted!) so I decided that I would try these Emmi Caffe Latte coffee drinks instead as they worked out as 5 for £5 whereas the Starbucks ones are 4 for £5. 

June Product Empties | Mini Reviews

AD | I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful sunshine as much as I am! This Spring time, and early Summer time, I have been using so many different products and I had twenty empty products to review so I put them all into a bag (a Tesco store plastic bag) to do a massive products empties blog post and one of the guys threw the bag out thinking it was rubbish because it was in a Tesco bag. I was gutted. But it was also my fault for putting empty products into a Tesco store bag. Within one week I had a few built up again so instead of my planned massive product empties blog, here is a smaller one for you all: 

Be Inspired with Tesco Beauty

AD | Tesco send me these two wonderful products by Max Factor and Olay to try out as part as their Be Inspired beauty event which they are currently hosting a four week in-store, in association with the beautiful TalkBeckyTalk

Deep Cleansing Beauty Facial | DIY

Today’s blog is all about Deep Cleansing and I thought it may be a really fun way of learning you how to do a deep cleanse if I gave you a step-by-step way of doing so on one of your friends. I learned how to do this when I was studying as a make up artist in college before I went to uni so it's been a really long time since I learned it, so I do know what I'm doing now when it comes to doing a deep cleansing facial routine. These steps are going to be really easy to follow and you and your friend (or friend’s) could have a girls night in one night after a long busy week and follow this giving each other a good deep cleanse.

My Birthday Wishlist | 2015

I posted one of these on my old blog last year and everyone seemed to enjoy reading it,  so I thought I would do one again for this year. 
This is not in any way, shape, or form me asking for anyone to buy or send me presents or things for my birthday, these are just things I would buy myself for my birthday if I could. 
These items are all from my Amazon wishlist so I have linked them to Amazon so you can check them out and possibly add them to your wishlists if you have an Amazon account. 
These are in no order whatsoever!

Monthly Favourites | June 2015

AD | I hope you're all having a wonderful first weekend of July. It's taken me a little over a week to get around to writing this blog post so I'm sorry about that but here it is and I hope you all enjoy it. 

One of the reasons that it's taken me over a week to write this blog post is because literally I had three items to talk about and that wouldn't really have been a monthly favourites, until the last week in June when literally I loved so much stuff that I then found it hard to narrow them all down to nine items, but here they are:

Glam Guide by Fleur De Force | Book Review

Pink Parcel | Review

AD | I have had this blog post on my old blog since May and I wanted to move it over onto this blog as my old blog posts may be getting shut off. So some of you may have already read this. 

This new review blog is all about my best-kept secret - it’s called Pink Parcel*. If you haven’t already heard of this company then you are missing out! It’s a company just made for us girls giving us all of our needs for our periods each month! 
Let me just say now firstly, I am in love with this company and I think it’s an amazing idea for all women out there. Plus, for the girls who are a little embarrassed about their periods, it comes in a clear grey parcel package from the postman so no-one will even know what you are getting!
There are two boxes to choose from; either young teen parcel or pink parcel for them women, like me, who are a little older.

Meet My Brother | Sibling Tag

Thank you to everyone who tagged me in 'The Sibling Tag' and I'm sorry it's taken me nearly two years to do it! My brother came to stay overnight at my home last night and whilst he was here I asked him if he would do it, he agreed so here it is for you all. 

My Favourite Disney Songs | Tag

On my other blog I have been requested in so many blog tags and I just haven't been able to get around to doing them so I have trying now to get as many tag blog posts in as possible. So this one is going to my first tag in a while, so thank you to everyone who has tagged me in this tag and I hope you really enjoy it. These are in order of my favourite.

My Summer Goals | 2015

First things first; go and grab yourself a drink, some munchies and get comfortable because this blog is going to be a little long. Spring is basically over and summer is here! YEY! Here are my goals for this summer:

My Bucket List

I thought tonight I would share my bucket list with you. I know a lot of you have probably seen it already as it was on my old blog but just encase you missed it, here it is. 

My bucket list used to be a lot bigger but then I realised that due to life and health issues some of the things I will never be able to do and it is just wishful thinking. So this is my new bucket list and hopefully one day I will be able to do these things, I have taken away some and added a few to the list.
