Ultra Repair Cream Review



I recently purchased the First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Cream. I needed a new day cream which would be nourishing and help with the dry patches that I had on my forehead and also around my chin. I had heard a lot of great things about this brand and their skincare and when investigating the sites that sold them I realised Beautybay.com had a 10% discount code! I instantly snapped this up and I have been using this cream for about a week now and I have greatly seen an improvement.

A Pop of Colour Under the Eye


Lately I have been loving adding a pop of colour underneath the lower lashes. It creates such a lovely look and also adds definition to the eyes. Whenever I opt for a very natural look with not much colour to the eyes I like to add a coloured eyeliner, it makes the eyes stand out and also because I wear glasses everyday it picks up the colour perfectly.

Becoming Bilbo Baggins For The Day



 The grounds of my university are beyond stunning and there is nothing better to do than walk around the lake and explore the trails that lead off of it. Myself and my friend Leanne decided that we would make the most of this amazing weather and head around the lake, during which we might have slightly gotten lost in the process.

Feeling much like Bilbo Baggins this adventure has to be one of the most enjoyable and funniest things I have ever experienced. The grounds are beautiful and have so much wildlife and beautiful plants to take pictures off. Therefore I wanted to show you these amazing sites and some of the places we visited and got lost in. Now I will admit this included climbing under barbed wire, climbing fences and also wading through a river – note to self next time wear converses as stinging nettles really hurt!!

Spring Look Book


Recently I purchased some lovely clothes from New Look for Spring, I put together some looks with all of the items and they were all perfect to mix and match. I love all of the looks I created and hope I have been able to give you a bit of inspiration. New Look really have been on their A game recently as I loved almost everything in the shop and would have picked up more if my bank balance had allowed it!

New Look Spring Clothing Haul


Very recently myself and my family took a trip to our local seaside town, Weymouth, as it was a lovely sunny day and we thought we would make the most of it – we all know how Bristish weather can be. Whilst we were there we decided to pop into New Look and have a browse at the swimwear section. As with most shops we went in for one thing and came out with an entirely different thing all together – needless to say I didn’t buy any swimwear, but I did purchase some lovely spring/summer clothes. 

Starting off with the first thing I spotted, were these amazing trousers, they are lovely and lightweight and super soft. The light blue fabric print is lovely and works well with many tops – perfect for the warmer days when you don’t want to wear jeans and was an amazing price at only £9.99. Paired with this I opted for a lovely pink Jumper, this bad boy was on offer for only £5.00! Bargain! It’s once again lightweight and really lovely to wear in the spring as it is still nice and warm. 


The next item I purchased were these amazing blue jeans. They are the super skinny ones and are extremely soft, they only had a 34inch leg but I thought that I could just roll the ends and it creates a lovely look for the jeans. Coming in at only £19.99 these jeans really are a bargain, I love New Look jeans as they will last forever! Next is a lovely lace crop top, it is slightly longer than your normal crop top so does not show any belly which I love. The lace is super soft and it also has an extra panel in the front so it is not see through – it is however, see through in the back. This again was £9.99 so a really good price – a lot of these prices were actually cheaper than Primark which really amazed me and they are slightly better quality. 



Next up is this beautiful kimono – the fabric is super soft and the colours are gorgeous. The black and the dark green work perfectly together and it really matches the lace top and blue jeans perfectly. This was my most expensive item coming in at £22.99 but I have wanted a kimono for a long time now so it was definitely worth the price. 

I also purchased this beautiful dress, dresses are definitely my thing so leaving the shop without one just didn’t feel right, especially not when they have so mnay lovely ones. Once again I love the print and colours of this dress, perfect for spring and summer! I’m also going on holiday very soon so this dress will be perfect of a night-time! And at only £12.99 I had to have it! 

The final clothing item I purchased was this amazing denim jacket, I had been looking for one that was not too short for the longest time. A lot of the denim jackets in this colour in the shops are almost cropped, a style I am not a fan of. I found this lovely little item hidden in the racks and was amazed at the price, at £19.99 it was quickly in my basket! 

The final two items are necklaces, I spotted this blue one and instantly fell in love – a lot of the pieces I picked up were blue so I thought this statement necklace would work perfectly with them. All jewellery was on buy one get one free, so this meant I could find another cute necklace, I therefore decided to pick up this pretty pink flowered necklace. It is not as in your face and perfect for the days when you want to wear something a bit more subtle.

Bourjois CC Cream Review


Ah spring how I love you! Sunshine, bright colours and pretty flowers coming into the world. Because of this I love to not have so much coverage on my face and wanted to find a foundation/ cc cream that would help me to achieve this. I recently watch Essie Buttons Spring Make Up Look and saw she was raving about the Bourjois CC Cream. The coverage is a lot better than you would expect from a cc cream and helps to even out the complexion making it look flawless without too much make up on the face.
