Birchbox June 2015 | French Sole


The June Birchbox highlights the start of summer and the box this month was sponsored by ‘French Sole’, which is a very lovely and expensive brand of shoes. The boxes this month were optional and I picked the nautical themed one, with navy blue and white strips and a red love heart in the middle. I love anything French so this style was perfect for me!

Get Ready With Me | Current Make Up Routine

Get Ready With Me | Current Make Up Routine 

Very recently I have been loving my Bourjois CC Cream, the coverage is amazing and it feels incredibly light on my skin. I love this product as it lasts for a very long time before I feel the need to reapply. Next I will take my Lasting Perfecting Concealer by Collection and touch up any places I feel I need more coverage – under the eyes, down my nose and over any blemishes I have at the time.

What is in my Travel Make Up Bag? | Holiday to Spain


Very soon I am off to Spain for a relaxing holiday, something I am really looking forward to. This year has been very stressful and I am grateful to be given the opportunity to spend some time relaxing in the sun! Because of this I thought I would take the opportunity to show you what is in my Travel Make Up Bag. 

I have not been wearing too much make up recently and because of the warmer weather I don’t like to have so much coverage. Therefore, I feel the make up I have included reflects this. 

The make up bag itself is from Primark, it is very cute with the lolly pops and the pastel colours making it perfect for summer! It’s a very boxy shape making it the perfect size for my make up and also all my brushes. I have been in the need for a new make up bag since the zip broke on my old one, I love Primark make up bags as they are great quality and so cheap!

Birchbox May 2015 | Free Your Mind


For the month of May Birchbox gave us the opportunity to colour the boxes ourselves in order to bring creativity back to our lives. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to colour the box myself but feel it would have been quite a fun activity to do. (Leave links down below if you coloured in your box!)

Where Have I Been?


If you regularly follow my blog you would have noticed I have been absent for a number of weeks. Unfortunately, on the 2nd of May my Dad passed away after his long and difficult battle with cancer. As I am sure you will all understand I decided to take time away from blogging and also university to focus on my family and myself. The events that unfolded were extremely quick, shocking and devastating. I can only say that I am very pleased to have been home when I was. 

They say that only special people are allowed into this club and my dad was definitely one of them. From the moment he was diagnosed to the day he left us he never complained and something was only a problem when there was actually a problem. His laid back attitude to life and his fantastic wit was what got us through the year. Unfortunately the world has lost an amazing man. Cancer is an illness no one can predict, my dad was the healthiest, loveliest, most amazing man you would ever meet and we would never have thought, a few years ago from now, that it would have chosen him. 

I wish everyday that he could still be here, but to know that he is no longer in pain comforts me. He is my brightest star looking down on me and I know that he will always look out and watch over me, just as he did when he was alive.

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.
