The Haircare Edit With Fragrance Direct

When it comes to my hair, taking care of it seems to get pushed aside and skincare, makeup and tanning all come before it. It seems silly but to be honest I've given up with my hair since I completely damaged it by dying it too much. Recently Fragrance Direct got in touch and asked if I wanted to work on a hair care edit with them, and of course I said yes! I spend ages browsing through Fragrance Direct quite regularly, purely because of their huge discounts on expensive and designer products! I've been using the products I chose for a good week now, and its time to share all my opinions on them...

Autumn Clothing Wishlist | HIGHSTREET

Autumn is on the horizon, and despite the sadness of the six week holiday ending and having to return back to education, I can't quite contain my excitement that the Autumn season is just around the corner. Autumn and winter are my favourite seasons, I especially love bonfire night it is one of my favourite times of the year! Autumn also comes with amazing fashion trends, and of course it is completely makeup appropriate to bring out all the dark red and purple lipsticks I own. But for now, here's my Autumn clothing picks...

Makeup Revolution Intense Salvation Lip Lacquers | Review

Lip lacquers are a product I would never really reach for while makeup shopping, but Makeup Revolution were kind enough to send me two of their Intense Salvation Lip Lacquers to try out. I'm not much of a gloss girl, but you'll definitely never see me not wearing a lipstick. Its therefore intriguing to find a product which claims to fall in between.

The Mom Jean Edit | Collab With FLAWLESSFLARE

Mom/Boyfriend jeans have been on super trend this past year, particularly when Topshop released their collection of the style jeans which sent many girls to the hype of them. They've always been an item of clothing I've wanted to wear and pull off, but never really thought I could. I took the bullet anyway when I saw the Blank NYC Denim Rolled Boyfriend Jeans on SHOPBOPI ordered the jeans in a waist size 27 inches, which I knew would be slightly too big for me as I am usually a 25, but as these were the smallest size they had due to it being a sale item, I assumed it would be okay anyway. Aaah I was wrong, they were too big for me (despite being ridiculously comfortable), so I got my friend Phoebe from FlawlessFlare to model them for me as they were a perfect fit on her...

MAC Lipstick Collection

A MAC lipstick collection is a post I've wanted to do for a while, but as I only have six I though it seemed a bit small compared to the fellow bloggers of the beauty community! But MAC lipsticks are my all time favourite lipsticks and although I don't have many I still wanted to share my small collection of my FAVOURITE lipsticks. There are many reasons why I love MAC lipsticks, first off the formula's are all amazing and super long lasting no matter what finish they're in, most lipsticks which aren't matte finishes from the drugstore never seem to last for me so finding a lipstick which is of a cremesheen/satin finish which stays on my lips for a good few hours solid is a huge bonus. Secondly, the packaging. I love the simplicity of the bullets and the contrast of the silver against the black..I definitely think these are classy looking lipsticks.

A Positive Review On Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer...?!

I don't think I can say I've seen one positive review on Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer, this product has been out a while and in fact recently Maybelline brought out another primer from their Baby Skin range, their Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur Primer. I can't say I have tried enough primers out to discover whether or not they actually work and are worth the investment however this was given to me by a friend so I thought it was rude not to try it out.

The Perfect Autumn/Winter Ankle Boots | DUOBOOTS

Last week DuoBoots UK got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to chose a pair of boots or shoes from their online collection to see what I thought of them, and how could I say no?! I've never heard of DuoBoots before, so I had no expectations when I first browsed their website but overall I have to say I'm pretty impressed..

The Body Shop Body Butter in Passionfruit..Discontinued?

Its quite fair to say that when it comes to body butters and creams, The Body Shop's Body Butters are my all time holy grail product. When I say you wake up with legs as smooth as baby's skin, it couldn't be further from a lie.

Travel This Summer with SHOPBOP!

It probably seems late to do a 'travel essential' post but what does that matter when there's four weeks of summer left? August is supposed to be the hottest month after all, and is when most people tend to go on their holidays! Although I'm not going away myself this summer, I thought I would bring together a fashion guide of travel essentials for those of you lucky enough to go away this summer..

Makeup Revolution London Pro Hygiene Brush Cleaner and Shampoo

Last week I was sent Makeup Revolutions two brand new products to try out, their 'Pro Hygiene Anti Bacterial Brush Shampoo and Brush Cleaner'. After being seriously in to makeup for around a year, it was about time I got round to getting myself a brush cleaner. These two products are the first I've got to tend to my brush collection, as I've just been washing them with shampoo and conditioner (probably not the best thing to do!).

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation | Review

Finding the perfect foundation is an extremely rare thing, and if I'm honest I don't think it exists. The majority of us are so obsessed by the idea of a flawless face, that we believe there is a foundation out there which can compare to the photos and campaigns portrayed in the media..(hopefully in a few weeks/months/years I'll be able to disagree entirely with what I just said after finding a holy grail foundation, but for now I'm going to keep on searching).
