KKW x Kylie Cosmetics Nude Lipsticks Review

I am a sucker for nude lip products. However, I am super pale so finding the 'right nude' for me is difficult. When I saw these shades I jumped at the chance to try them. I had birthday money left over so decided it was worth the splurge (due to customs charges).

Current Beauty Favourites

I have been trying to save lots of dolla recently due to the offspring I'm going to be producing in September. Because of this, I haven't discovered very many new products recently. However, there have definitely been a hand few of items that I have reached for more than others. I've decided to do 'current favourites' from now on, rather than monthly, as it's unlikely I will have different favourites every few weeks now!

Face of the Day: Everyday, Glam Makeup.

I haven't been doing very much with face recently, so, I thought I would do a face of the day for the one time I did. For my birthday, I wanted to look like I'd made an effort but without doing anything too intense. This is what I came up with.

Tips To Lead A Positive Lifestyle

Throughout my 24 year of living (25 in a weeks time, but still), there have definitely been a few negative things that have happened. In spite of this, or maybe because of this, I have always tried to have a positive outlook on situations. I am by no means a professional in this topic, but, I do believe that there are many things a person can do to try and be positive. I've also read a lot about this topic as negativity is something I really don't like to be around. I thought I'd write a post on the things that I personally do to try and live a somewhat 'positive lifestyle'.

Beauty Wishlist

Today I return with a Beauty Wishlist post. I haven't bought anything other than food and essentials for myself in almost two months (very good for me) but that can't stop me from window shopping! These are some of the products that have caught my eye recently. Also, if you're wondering why I haven't been blogging much recently, I explain at the end of the post :)

Skincare: Getting Rid of Pores

I've always had very obvious pores across my nose and chin. They really annoy me and I've been looking for different products to try and minimise them. I was contacted to try a couple of products from that help with pores. I received the Blackhead Acne Removal Activated Carbon 3 Steps Mask Set and the Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask.

Jade Hair Straightening Brush - Irresistible Me*

Today's post is on something a little different. I don't do much with my hair, I'm definitely more of a make up girl. I was contacted by the lovely lot at Irresistible Me to try their hair straightening brush. I'd see quite a few of these floating around the internet so I jumped at the chance to try it.

January Favourites | 2017

The first favourites of the year is upon us. I really didn't know if I would have anything to talk about this month as I have not long done the best of beauty for 2016. Turns out I was wrong... I have yet more products (etc.) that I have fallen in love with over the past month.

The Perfect Grey Bag: Featuring KoKo Couture*

I am a monochrome girl, through and through. I very rarely wear colour and all my bags (bar one beige one), are black. The lovely guys over and KoKo Couture contacted me to see whether I wanted to review one of their handbags. Being the massive handbag fan that I am, I jumped at the opportunity.

Sunday Round Up

Today's a chatty post as I felt like writing something more laid back. The last couple of weeks have felt super grown up. I had a week off of work to do an intensive driving course, and I passed!

How I Got 1000 Blog Followers In 6 Months

I am not claiming that my blog is the most popular thing in the planet, in fact, it's a relatively small fish in a big pond. However, my blog has grown from 100 followers to over 1000 in around 6 months.  This isn't something that I expected, and I definitely thought it would take a lot longer to hit quadruple figures. I am very proud of my blog and although there has been some, lets say, 'critics', it's something I really enjoy. I've always loved to write, I just never liked being told what to write about and how it would be deemed as successful (aka, school grading). 

This post is based on what I did to get to this point in my blog. You may have a lot more followers than me, or a lot less, numbers aren't everything. However, this may just spark a, 'oh I might try that', moment for you. I suppose this is also for me, a way to remind myself of what to keep on top of and how to help grow this platform further.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Modern Renaissance Review / Swatches

I finally have it. I have been after this palette since it came out. But, living in England means that getting hold of many 'cult' products, often proves to be very difficult. I considered shipping it from the US and paying the charges but it worked out pretty pricey and it was still out of stock a lot of the time. I went to Los Angeles in February this year and dragged everyone to all the stores I could think of that stock it, still with no luck. However, Anastasia Beverly Hills has launched a UK website, which I squealed out loud about. I wanted to get a few liquid lipsticks, but they were out of stock, however, this bad boy was in stock. I purchased it without even thinking, and I do not regret it. Keep reading to see the modern renaissance palette review with swatches

Favourites of 2016

I tried to narrow down my favourites from 2016, I didn't really do that well, so this might be quite a long post. Saying this, a lot of items were stand out favourites for me so, it didn't feel right to leave them out just to shorten the post! So, grab a cuppa tea and continue on to find out what my 'go to' items for 2016 were!

Goals For 2017 / New Years Resolutions

I use the term, 'resolutions' loosely. I've never been one to make New Years Resolutions, mainly because I forget them almost instantly. However, I love listening to other peoples. With this in mind, I've spent the last few days reading peoples goals and plans which inspired to set some myself this year. I mean, there's no harm in having a little hope! Plus, if I write a post on it, I have it right here in writing, so I cannot forget!
