Monthly favorites time already? Seriously? Wow it will be Christmas before you know it. Now I should probably tell you that I am writing this post a week in advance because I am on holiday from the 24th August to the 31st. However everything that is mentioned here I have been loving and will be taking along with me on my holiday. So let's get right into it. 

Vaseline Spray&Go Moisturizer
I won't go into too much detail with this as I did a review about it not to long ago (HERE). Super quick and easy to use, very moisturizing, non greasy and sticky and very light. Perfect for the summer months and taking a way on holiday. For only £4.99 you cannot go wrong. 

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
Probably one of my most favorite concealers ever and very highly rated within the beauty community. Quite rightly as well. It gives flawless coverage over spots, reawakens and brightens the under eye area as well. It is a very light concealer and blends into the skin amazingly well. Extremely good coverage and doesn't leave your skin feeling cakey at all. For only £5.49 it is a bargain. 

Radox Essentials Soft Care Handwash with Milk 
Yes you read this correctly I am including a hand wash in my monthly favorites. Very uncommon within the blogging world however I had to. I just love it so much. It smells incredibly and leaves your hands feeling so soft as well. It is an absolutely amazing handwash and for less than £2 you cannot really go wrong! 


Maybelline Rocket Volume Express Waterproof Mascara 
I don't really have much knowledge with mascara so when I find one I like I tend to stick with it and I find this mascara absolutely perfect! Makes my eyelashes look super volumised, doesn't clump up or make them look unnatural and that is definitely something I love about this mascara. Another holy grail product right here. 

Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash 
I got this body wash free with last months copy of Glamour. Hands down one of the best body washes I've ever used. I love the fact that it is a super toning body wash as well meaning that it firms up your skin and I've definitely noticed such a difference. It also leaves my skin feeling very soft which is a bonus. If you would like a full review of this product let me know in the comments below. 


Revlon Lip Butter (Sorbet)
Now this is a color that I can definitely say is out of my comfort zone however I absolutely love it. I don't apply too much as I'm a girl who loves the more natural look so I just apply a little bit and blend it into the lips and it still gives a gorgeous pop of color across my lips. As with all the revlon lip butters they are very moisturising and last ages on the lips before they need to be reapplied. I'm wearing this color a lot at the moment before Summer is finished as I think it's more of a summer color. 


Toni & Guy Salt Spray 
I saw this product in a monthly favorites post last month and instantly wanted to try it as the review was so good. I've been reading a lot about salt sprays and how they are meant to add body, volume and texture to your hair and I definitely haven't been left disappointed. It's very light, has a fresh scent to it and keeps my hair looking decent all day. Definitely a product I will be repurchasing for the summer months as it is ideal for that. 

Avon Advance Techniques Moroccan Argon Oil 
Moroccan Oil is a product that has been very highly rated amongst the beauty community. I decided to finally jump on the bandwagon but instead decided to get a cheaper version from Avon. As Avon is one of my favorite brands I knew that I wasn't going to be left disappointed. It makes my like look incredibly healthy, shiny, makes it a lot more manageable and my hair is also felt feeling a lot more silky as well. It doesn't weigh down my hair which I love as well. 

So those are my beauty favorites for this month. I was also thinking to do a non-beauty favorites each month. What do you think? Leave me a comment below if you think that's a good idea. Have you used any of these products mentioned in this post? What are your views on them? Let me know and I will be sure to reply.

Hello everyone! So a few weeks ago I was browsing a few blogs and reading tag posts when I came across this one on the gorgeous Kayleigh aka Couturegirl's blog. She actually created this tag herself and I absolutely love the idea of expressing why we love blogging and the idea of inspiring other people to create their own blogs and space on the internet. I needed a good push to start my blog and I am so glad I did as now I could not imagine my life without it. The aim of this blog is, as the title says, give five reasons you love blogging, give your blogging aim, give a blogging tip and the name of one blogger who has inspired you along your blogging journey. 

So the reasons I love blogging so much are as follows: 
Inspiration: This is the main reason I blog. I have been so inspired by other bloggers, photography and make up this past year and this is why I finally decided to start a blog so I could try out new make up items and step out of my comfort zone and try new things. 

Confidence: I am normally an incredibly shy person. I stick to people and things I know rather than trying to meet new people. I was incredibly scared and worried before I started a blog however in the short space of time I've had it, it has given me such confidence and made me want to say yes to trying more things as you never know where they might lead you. 

Passionate People: Blogging has led me to come across so many amazing people who share the same interests as me and are just as passionate about make up and beauty related things like I am now. I've spoken to so many girls on here and twitter who I would consider friends and I wouldn't change that for the world. 

Learning New Things: New products, new ways to photograph products, writing skills, how to put a message across in a positive way...these are all things I have learned whilst having this little blog. It has taught me so much. I have always had an interest in journalism however, I never pursued it as I never knew if I would be persuasive enough or if people would understand what I was saying or people would just thing 'she hasn't got a clue what she is talking about'. However the response I have had has been incredible. The comments I receive make my day and with the risk of sounding a little vain, has taught me that I am actually good at this and that I should keep on going. 

Making The Rules: Blogging is my own personal space on the internet where I decide what goes on it and when it goes on and I absolutely love having that power. I can literally talk about whatever I want to talk about. There is no set rules. Yes this might be a beauty themed blog but I will talk about lifestyle, I'll include fashion and nail posts, I'll include hauls and it just makes me very happy to know that people can't judge me based on a bunch of rules and how I 'shouldn't talk about this'. There is no pressure to talk about a certain product or do certain things and I absolutely love that. Yes I might review a product after it has been massively hyped up say, two years ago but I will still give my two cents as there will be people out there who perhaps haven't tried it yet. I make the rules and I love it. 

Blogging Aim
Now that I have spoken about the reasons as to why I love blogging so much I will talk about my blogging aims. To be honest I don't really have an aim. Short term wise I would love to reach 100 followers by the end of this year. I know a blog isn't all about followers but to know that there are currently 73 of you following my blog absolutely makes my day. I love logging into blogger everyday and seeing a certain new face pop up at the side of my blog. It makes my day that people actually want to hear what I have to say. Long term wise I'd love to just keep on enjoying my blog, taking photos and writing about the products I love or dislike. Like I said previously, blogging has given me a lot of confidence already so maybe youtube videos could be on the cards in the future. Blogging really does open a lot of doors and I can't wait to walk through them. 

Blogging Tip 
Blog because you are passionate about it and not because of the freebies or followers. I cannot stress this enough. When I first started my blog I was so frustrated that the follower count wasn't rising and I wanted to pack it in. Then with some advice from a friend who convinced me I was good at this I decided to keep on trying and not give up. 4-5 months down the line and I have had over 11K views on my blog and I consider that absolutely fantastic. Good things come to those who wait and who work hard. If you love blogging do it for that reason. Don't do it because everyone else is or to get free products to review. You will need to prove yourself and it is very noticeable to people if you do not actually enjoy what you do and are just doing it for the sake of it. Do what you love and love what you do. 

Inspirational Blogger 
When it comes to actually setting up my own blog it was actually Zoella who inspired me. I love her passion, her enthusiasm, her writing style and her photography skills. I would check her blog literally every day and just admire how hard she's worked on her blog to get to where she is today. She's the first blogger I ever came across and if I hadn't have come across her blog I don't believe I'd be typing this up today. If you search Zoella's youtube and go back to her earlier videos you will see that she has actually done a blogging tips video with Louise aka SprinkleofGlitr and it is absolutely amazing or another blogger Isabella Spright ( has also done a you-tube video which inspired me even more. Links to both of the videos will be linked below.


In conclusion to this post I absolutely love blogging and couldn't currently imagine my life without it. As I am currently unemployed it is also keeping me sane at the moment as well. If you would like to do this tag then please do! I linked Kayleigh's blog at the beginning of this post if you'd like to check out her blog or click HERE for her version of this tag. If you do this as well please link it at the end so I can have a read as I would love to read why people actually blog like they do. It doesn't matter what kind of blog you are I will read everyone's if you link it! 

Hugs and Kisses

Hello Everyone! Today I thought I'd tell you about one of my most favorite purchases in the last few weeks and this is the cocoa butter spray&go moisturizer. A spray and go moisturizer. What more could you ask for? It really is so much effort to come out of a shower and put a moisturizer on and 99% of the time you will just sit there waiting for it to dry before you can put any clothes on or you'd think of the above and put it off especially if you are in a hurry. I am one of those lazy people that just won't do it as I do not have the patience. 

Vaseline are actually a brand I have a love-hate relationship with. I absolutely hate their lip products but love their creams as they are so moisturizing, so when I spotted this at the counter in boots I did not hesitate to pick it up. They have three versions of this. Obviously I picked up the cocoa butter one but they have a yellow one which has got oat extract in designed to make the skin super soft, and a green one as well which has aloe vera in to refresh the skin. Part of the reason I chose the cocoa butter one is because I know that this ingredient is designed to give your skin a lovely healthy glow. Considering it's been super warm lately this is definitely ideal. 

This moisturizer smells absolutely gorgeous, sinks almost instantly into the skin and makes you skin feeling super soft and looking incredibly healthy and glowing. You can literally moisturize you whole body in 5 minutes or under. Just spray your whole body, rub it in and bam you're good to go. It sinks into your skin in around a minute as well. Incredibly quick and easy. Another bonus of this product for me is that there is no stickiness or greasiness. I tend to have very dry patches of skin around my body as well and I find that this definitely helps combat those. I find that with most moisturizers I've used tend to be quite heavy as well which is not idea after a shower as you will feel hot and sweaty again but this is just so light and perfect for the summer months.

I can see this product fast becoming a holy grail product and for only £4.99 you cannot go wrong. If you wish to purchase this product either pop into your local Boots or I'm guessing Superdrug would do them too or click HERE to purchase it. 

Have you already tried the Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturizers? Which one did you choose to opt for? Leave me a comment below and I will be sure to reply!

Hey Lovelies! So I am probably the last blogger in the history of blogspot so do a full review of this product. I apologize however if you have followed my blog from the beginning then you will know that back in January I did mini reviews of a couple of Lush products I had bought. This lip scrub was one of them. Now when I look back on that review I cringe so bad because it is officially the worst review I have ever done. The photos, the lighting, the review itself. Just no. Fleur Danielle what on earth were you thinking? Now I know most of you will probably be thinking 'well if you think it's that bad why not delete it?' and I would but I like having it there as I look at my blogging back then compared to now I can see just how far I have come. If you want to see that fail of a review for some laughs then click HERE. I'm pretty proud of my progress. But before I start getting all emotional on you let's get to the point of this post. 

Now like I have already mentioned I bought this product back in January when I was shopping one evening with my friend just before uni started again. I had never really bought anything from Lush before and I remember before Christmas everyone was going on about the bath bombs and the 'Snow Fairy' shower gel was on every girls instagram and being reviewed an awful lot so I just couldn't put off the trip any longer especially as student loans had come through a day or so before. Perfect timing really.

Anyway whilst I was in Lush I spotted this lip scrub and I was instantly drawn in. I had heard of a face scrub and a body scrub but lip scrub? This was completely new to me. I decided to test it out in the shop (Yes I know how unhygienic of me but I promise I bought the same one I tested) and I absolutely loved it.

The main aim of this lip scrub is to leave the lips feeling insanely moisturized and smooth by removing the dead skin and any flakiness from them. I find it definitely does the trick. I don't know if it is just me but before I found out about this product I used to use the old toothbrush trick. Not only is that extremely painful and leaves the lips bleeding but it also doesn't work as well as this. This is a very sugary product so tends to be quite crumbly however once you have applied it and removed it from your lips they look incredibly healthy looking and are super soft. It's as Lush themselves state 'Keeps lips in tip top condition for kissing, pouting, talking or anything else you wish to do with them'. 

Lush use caster sugar and jojoba oil to make this product. Because of this it means that the scrub is quite crumbly which is the only downfall I will give. I use this over a sink so that any excess product falls in there instead of on the floor or dressing table purely because I am just to lazy to clean it.  Once applied I leave it on for around 30 seconds and then lick it off. As well as this product tasting insanely good, think candyfloss, and working absolute wonders on my lips it also smells like bubblegum as well. This scrub is best followed up by a lip balm to keep the good condition of your lips. I use the Palmers Dark Chocolate and Peppermint one. Another sweet tasting and smelling product. Using this before applying lipstick will also help as it will just glide on the lips and leave a flawless finish. 

If you are a girl, love pink, love bubblegum and anything sugary definitely pick this up. Summer is almost over so it means that the colder weather will start arriving soon. Definitely a good idea to pick these up next time you're in Lush so you are prepared for the colder months. There are also two other flavors in store which are Mint Julips and Popcorn both of which I've tried and both of which I don't particularly like as much as the bubblegum one. These can all be purchased online for £5.20 which even though is a tad bit pricey is definitely worth it. Click HERE to go to Lush's website. 

Have you tried this lip scrub or any of the other flavors? Has it, like me, become one of your go to items? Is Lush one of your favorite places to shop? Let me know below!

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a good week so far. Today I thought I would talk to you about a product that I received a couple of months ago. Now if you have been following my blog from the beginning you would have noticed that I don't tend to talk about higher end brands. Part of the reason for this is because I believe the drugstore/highstreet/whatever you want to call them shops very often have perfectly good dupes for higher end brands, and another reason for this is because I am currently unemployed so can't really afford brands like MAC, Nars etc. I am hoping that when I get a job I'll be able to give the higher end brands a whirl so keep an eye out for them. 

YSL is a very popular brand among the beauty blogging/youtube community. Reviews of their lipsticks, eyeliners and mascaras are floating about everywhere. It's quite frustrating that I haven't yet tried any make up! But anyway before I get carried away let's get on with this review. I received this gift set as an early graduation present from my Aunt and I absolutely adore it. I am a huge fan of the perfume/moisturizer combination so I was over the moon when I received this. 

Firstly the perfume. Now as much as I love it, it is definitely not your everyday scent. It's more of a special occasion scent which contains hints of mandarin, carnation, jasmine, vanilla and very subtle hints of cinnamon as well. It is extremely overpowering when you first apply it however definitely dies down after about five minutes. The scent will stay with you all day or night depending on the event which I absolutely love as it means you don't have to keep topping up. One of the benefits of this very warm and spicy scent. This is definitely a scent where only spraying a tiny bit will go a long way. When I first bought it I sprayed a bit too much and almost passed out. When I say overpowering I mean overpowering. 

The moisturizer on the other hand, strong as it is, is definitely not as overpowering as the perfume. Again the scent is very similar to the perfume but not as spicy and strong. The moisturizer has quite a runny consistency but is extremely moisturizing and definitely hydrates the skin. It also leaves the skin looking very healthy as well. The main thing that I like about this moisturizer is that you don't even need to put perfume on. You can just apply this and be good to go. I've applied this and then gone out without applying perfume and have actually been complimented and had people asking what I'm applying as I smell really nice which is always good to hear. I would say this moisturizer is slightly more wearable on a day to day basis compared to the perfume however if you wear both of them together you will definitely smell absolutely gorgeous and will get a lot of compliments, particularly from the guys as it is quite a sensual scent. 

If there is one negative I will give for this product is that it is definitely not for everyone. Everyone can wear it obviously there's know stopping that but I think it's an older more sophisticated fragrance that would suit women over the age of 18, maybe even older. However if that's how you like to smell and you are younger you will absolutely love this. 

Have you ever tried this fragrance from YSL? Are there any other fragrances you would recommend? Let me know in the comments below!

Hey Everyone! Hope you've all had a fabulous week. I can't believe another weekend has finally come around. This past week has flown by. This weekend I have quite a busy one planned. I went to the gym this morning and this afternoon headed to my local shopping center with my Aunt to do some shopping for my little cousins birthday later on next week. Tomorrow I will be heading to the X Factor Boot Camp with my brother, my best friend and her sister. No I am not auditioning before you ask. I went to the live auditions last month and there is actually a lot of talent this year so looking forward to that being back on my screen in the Autumn/Winter. X Factor being back means that it's not long till Christmas as well. How scary is that? 

Anyway before I carry on and ramble, I thought that today I would talk to you about part of my skincare routine. Cleansing and toning is definitely not my most favorite thing to do in the world. It is just so much effort and takes such a long time. That, however, was before I came across Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. I found this by watching a skincare routine video by Zoe aka Zoella and absolutely loved the look of this product so about 4 or 5 months ago I decided to purchase the cleanser and the toner and I am literally in love. I apply both the cleanser and toner every morning and night to refresh and cleanse my skin in order to have the perfect canvas for my make up. 

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 
I had never really come across a hot cloth cleanser before so when I saw this in Zoe's video I was quite intrigued and didn't really expect to love this product. However it is amazing. It smells so good and leaves my skin feeling so refreshed, soft and clean. The cleanser comes in a 100ML pump and has a cream like consistency which I absolutely love. I just apply an even layer all over my face, with my make up on, leave it on for 2-3 minutes, run the cloth that is pictured above under the hot water (hence the hot cloth part) and remove the cleanser off my face. This cloth is also excellent for exfoliating your face as well. It takes less than a minute to remove the cleanser off my face and it removes nearly every trace of make up that I have. The main thing I love about this cleanser is the scent. It just smells very pure and clean and refreshing. It contains rosemary, chamomile, eucalyptus essential oil and cocoa butter which is one of my favorite ingredients when it comes to skin care products. 

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic 
Now when it comes to this toner I have seen quite a few negative reviews. Not that many people seem to like it as much as they like the cleanser which I find bizarre. Toners are an essential part of my routine, particularly if they improve the radiance of your skin which this one does. As it says on the product it 'revitalises, soothes and tones for instant radiance'. I have quite dull looking skin so to find a product that will improve the radiance is definitely a plus in my books and I find that this definitely does the trick. This toner comes in a 200ML bottle. I apply this toner using a cotton wool pad, wipe it over my face and neck and not only does it remove all the excess make up that the cleanser might not reach but it also leaves your face feeling very refreshed. This is due to all the ingredients that are contained within the toner which are organic aloe vera, calendula, rose scented geranium, cucumber and natural vitamin E which is why it feels so refreshing on the skin. 

Additional Information
Liz Earle Cleanse and Toner can be purchased from the Liz Earle Website. The 100ML cleanser is priced at £13.25, however if you want to purchase the starter kit this comes with 2 muslin clothes and is priced at £14.75. The 200ML Instant Boost Skin Tonic is priced at £13.25. The cleanser and toner suits absolutely all skin types and I personally believe it is worth every penny. If you wish to have a look at the Liz Earle selection of products please click HERE to have a browse. If you make an order and it is your first time you might be lucky enough to receive a mini sample of the Liz Earle Cleanser like I did. What more could you possibly want? 

Have you used Liz Earle products before? If you have tried the cleanser and toner do you like them? What other products from Liz Earle would you recommend? Leave me a comment below and I shall reply to them all.

All of these pretty items were presents from my 18th & 21st Birthdays so I do not know where they are from unfortunately

Hello Everyone! Hope you're all having a lovely day! It's Thursday, meaning only one day till the weekend can finally begin! How exciting. This weekend I will be shopping for my little twin cousins' birthday next week. They will be two years old. I love shopping for children so I am excited to see what I can find that will make them happy. 

Today I thought I would do something a little bit different. As I am currently unemployed I haven't really been able to go out and try new make up or skin care products and I have been left with that stressful question of 'What am I going to blog about?' If you have been in the same situation as me and have a blog you know how frustrating it can be when you want to try something but can't. This is why today I thought I would do a 'Room Tour' post. I love reading these kind of posts and watching room tour videos on YouTube as I always get inspiration of how I can decorate my own room. I am quite a nosy person and I know there are many of you out there, like me, who enjoy these kinds of posts. 

Now this room hasn't always been my room. In fact within my house I have slept the bedroom that is now my brother's room and also had the box room that is now a study room. A few years ago my parents decided that it was time to renovate the house so they converted the loft. Now they were a bit torn with whether or not they should have this room or give it to their eldest child ME! Fortunately I was lucky enough to get it. I love it, it is just so big and spacious and fits everything I want. If there was one thing I don't like about this room is that it gets so hot. Literally the hottest house in the room. Even in Winter I have to have the windows open a little bit. 

But anyway, as you can see from the photos my room is all fitted. This means that if I wanted to change my room around and move the furniture to different places I can't do that. As you can see at the sides of my bed I have wardrobes and cupboards where I keep my clothes, books, old school college & recently university stuff in there. It just keeps it from cluttering up my desk which as you can see is not included in the photos as it was an absolute mess but its a simple white table from ikea where the sides fold down. My bed is a king size and the duvet cover and pillow cases are from Ikea. The duvet is white with pink roses all over the cover. This is my favorite duvet as it is just so bright and makes my room look so girly. 

At the sides of my bed there are bedside tables. On the left hand side I use it to store my DVDs and CDs in the top drawer and all my old travelling magazines in the bottom drawer. On the top of the table I put my iPod dock and my collection of Yankee candles. On the right hand side I store my books and other little items such as my blogging book, diary and headphones in the top drawer and my Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill box sets in the bottom drawer. On top I keep a tissue box, memory jar, collection of Company and Glamour magazines and Polaroid pictures. I also always have a bottle of water to hydrate myself. Both sides of the bed side table have little compartments where I keep gifts that my family and friends have given to me and other items that are important to me. 

My dressing table obviously consists of my make up and jewelry items as well. This is currently a work in progress as I am sorting everything out and in the future I will be getting separate storage compartments to make it more organised as right now it is quite a mess. I keep all my cotton wool pads for my cleansers and toners and also have my hair dryer and curlers in a drawer too. One of my drawers in my dressing table also contains my socks. I have a drawer in my wardrobe that contain socks too so yes I am a little bit obsessed with socks. I get very cold feet so even in summer I need thin ones that can warm them up. The baby picture above my dresser is actually me. I am not the biggest fan of having a picture of myself as a baby above my dressing table if I am being honest but never mind.  

So there we have it that is my room tour. I absolutely love my room. It is a perfect place for me to just relax and blog or listen to music, read a book, watch a couple of films or even have a few friends over for a girly night in as the sofa in my room converts into a bed as well. I love having little quotes around my room as well. Lately I have been purchasing a lot of items with positive quotes as it is giving me a more positive outlook on life and like the book on my dresser says, teaches me that everything is going to be okay. It is a gorgeous room and I am so thankful to my parents for giving it to me. 

What is your room like? Do you have a blog post or YouTube video? Are you perhaps in the process of redesigning your room? Has this post given you any ideas of how you would like you room to look once it has been completed? Leave me a comment and let me know! 

Hugs and Kisses 


Disclaimer: Please note that I am not showing off in anyway! I know there are lots of people out there who love to see how other people design their rooms which is why I decided to do this post. I am 100% grateful and know how lucky I am to be given a room like this.

Hello Everybody! Hope you've all had a good weekend. Today I thought I would tell you all about Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder. I had seen a lot of positive reviews about this powder so I was looking forward to giving it a whirl. I particularly loved seeing dupe reviews where this powder was considered even better than some high end powders. Rimmel are definitely one of my favorite brands ever. I absolutely love their foundations, mascaras, lip glosses and concealers as well so when I spotted this I did not hesitate to pick it up. Even though I don't really like the packaging I could forgive that for how affordable this product is. 

Speaking of the packaging, let's start off there. First of all it is very fuss free and you are able to see the actual color of the product before you purchase it. I love this idea as sometimes when I go into a shop a lot of the swatch samples are empty which can get quite annoying, so to see the color before you buy is ideal. None of that struggling to get a compact open to see how it looks. However, unlike most compacts this product does not come with a mirror. Now this isn't ideal if you want to see if your make up needs a quick touch up before you go somewhere. Saying that most of us girls have got other compacts we carry around with mirrors in so again that can be forgiven. I also don't think that this is the perfect handbag product as I reckon it could crack quite easily. Negatives aside the powder itself is absolutely amazing. This is my third re-purchase so you can tell I like it quite a lot. I love the Rimmel Logo that is embedded within the powder as well. 

When it comes to powder I consider this very important as it is the one product that can keep all your make up in place and get rid of that shiny finish you might get once you apply your foundation or concealer. I wear the shade 'Silky Beige (005)' and it is just perfect for my skin tone. It blends into my skin amazingly well which is a bonus as some powders I've used in the past (Max Factor being one) is either too dark or too light. The texture of this product is very smooth and the finish left on your face is exactly as the name on the front of the packaging states, matte and quite soft. I love this product because the finish is just so flawless. You don't need to worry about it looking too heavy or too cakey on the face as this isn't the case at all. When it comes to applying this powder I find that the best brushes to use are the real techniques powder brush or the buffing brush, however I tend to use the buffing brush more for blending my foundation. I can't say that it does actually last for 5 hours as it states because I often touch it up throughout the day but it does leave an absolutely gorgeous finish as mentioned before. 

The price of this product nearly knocked me off my feet. £3.99 is absolutely incredible. You really cannot complain for what you get. I'm sure we all have compact mirrors for topping off and make up bags that can keep this safe so it doesn't crack. It really is the best drug store powder out there at the moment in my opinion. You can purchase it from Superdrug and if you are looking for any other color the other shades are Transparent, Peach Glow, Pink Blossom, Sandstorm and Warm Beige so you are bound to find one that matches your skin tone. 


Have you used this powder before? What is your take on it? Is it something that you would keep repurchasing? Are there any other drug store powders you would recommend me? Leave me a comment below.

Hello everyone!! Hope you are all having a lovely Saturday and have lots planned for the remainder of the weekend. I have been spending my Saturday watching Harry Potter and playing the Sims Freeplay on my iPad. If you haven't downloaded that game and used to love The Sims then you are missing out. 

Today I thought I would do a birthday wishlist instead of a normal monthly wishlist for you all as there are only 21 days left until I turn 22. Before I start though let me just say that this is just me living in a dream world. I most definitely am not expecting any of these items and will be extremely happy with whatever I receive. Now that that's out of the way let's get on with the list! 

Rose Gold Watch 

Now I know that every single beauty blogger seems to be obsessed with the Michael Kors Rose Gold watches at the moment. And rightly so too as they are absolutely gorgeous, however, I would be happy with any simple rose gold watch as they are just so gorgeous and classy and as I don't own any rose gold jewelry a watch would be perfect to start off my collection.

♥ Blue Zip Front Scuba Skater Dress
I spotted this dress last week when I was browsing the River Island website and I fell in love immediately. It is just such a gorgeous color and I love the zip at the front of the dress rather than the back of a dress. The dress is such such a cute shape and color. I have an obsession with blue dresses at the moment, my wardrobe is literally full of them and this dress would just be perfect to add to my collection. 

♥ Moroccan Oil 
Since blogging I have seen this product being reviewed on every single blog I read and heard so many lovely things about it. I've never been one to really use oils on my hair however this has been on my list of things to try for a very long time now. I love the fact that the formula is supposed to enhance how manageable the hair is, increase the shine and also give a long term conditioning to the hair as well. These are things my hair definitely needs at the moment. 

♥ Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy La Fleur 
Now I am not going to lie when I say the main aspect that drew me into this product was the name. What a perfect name for a perfume. However another reason is when I was out shopping just before my graduation I spotted this in Debenhams and decided to give it a sniff and oh my goodness I feel in love with it immediately. It is so fruity, fresh and light which is what I really look for in a perfume so hopefully in the future I will be the proud owner.

♥  Macadamia Nature Oil Deep Repair Masque 
Now if you have been reading my blog from the beginning then you will know how much I've wanted this masque. I first saw Ingrid (Miss Glamarozzi) on youtube speaking about this and when she likes something she tends to talk about it a lot so the more I heard the more I wanted it and now it's in my top 10 of things I would like. Hair Masques are definitely something I think I need in order to protect the condition of my hair so I really hope to be able to give this a try in the future. 

♥ Beauty Blenders 
Now as most bloggers I tend to blend in my make up using my fingers or make up brushes as I find this just leaves flawless finishes on my face. However, when I was doing my weekly catch up of youtube beauty videos I spotted someone using this and I was immediately drawn in. The egg like shape and the color are just so adorable and when I was watching the video I noticed how gorgeous the finish is once you've blended all your make up in. l. I know Models Own do these blenders and they also have an orange one if pink isn't your thing. I'm sure there are other companies out there that do these as well. Definitely something I will be giving a whirl. 

♥ Pandora Bracelet 
I have always wanted a charm bracelet and Pandora just do the most gorgeous bracelets and charms. I've always wanted one that I don't know, brings out my personality or just something to show things that are important to me and just a little keepsake of special events and things that happen in my life. I just think it is such an adorable idea. 

♥ One Tree Hill Complete Series 
I am a complete one tree hill fanatic. I absolutely love the characters, Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush are absolutely amazing in this series. I cannot begin to tell you what this show means to me and how much it has taught me about life in general. I absolutely love it and definitely need the box set in my life. Well no, I don't NEED it but you know what I mean. 

♥ Bumble and Bumble Surf Gift Set 
This summer I have seen a lot of people rave about these products and they just seem absolutely perfect for those dreaded summer days if you've been in the pool or by the sea. The packaging and the name of this company are just so adorable and I have not seen one bad review about this product. Definitely something I will be checking out in the future. 

Have you got a birthday coming up? Is your birthday perhaps on the 24th August like mine? What is on your birthday wishlist? Are there any products here that you would like as well? Leave me a comment and let me know! 

Hugs and Kisses 



Wishlist | 22nd Birthday


Hello everyone!! Hope you are all having a lovely Saturday and have lots planned for the remainder of the weekend. I have been spending my Saturday watching Harry Potter and playing the Sims Freeplay on my iPad. If you haven't downloaded that game and used to love The Sims then you are missing out.

Hello Everyone! After the thunderstorms and rain we've had the past few days it's lovely to see that the sun has made a return and is shining back down on us. I also cannot believe it is August already. This means that there are 23 days left until my 22nd birthday! There are a lot of birthday celebrations I have to look forward to this month other than mine so I'm quite excited! Let me know if you birthday is this month! 

Today I thought I'd talk about a concealer that surprisingly I have not seen that many blog reviews of. I've seen plenty of youtube reviews nonetheless which is where I was introduced to this product. When I first heard the name I immediately didn't expect it to be a high street brand so you can imagine my surprise when Boots was mentioned. I immediately went out and bought it the next day because I absolutely loved how bright this makes the eyes look. 

I suffer from really dark circles underneath my eyes purely down to the reason that I suffer from insomnia meaning I don't get enough sleep. This means I'm constantly bombarded with comments telling me how tired I look. Never a good thing as it's a polite way of being told you look like crap. Lovely. 

Since using this concealer I've noticed such a change in the way I look. It is so effective underneath the eyes and hides dark circles and fine lines amazingly well. It also blends really well and leaves a matte to satin finish which I absolutely love. When applying this product you need to twist the bottom cap until you have enough product on the brush and then apply it however be warned that the brush is quite stiff so can be quite uncomfortable on application but you do get used to it. 

If I had to give this product any cons, the main ones I can think of is that it only comes in two shades. I use Nude, the other shade is Ivory. It definitely isn't suitable for use on blemishes at all either. As it's a highlighting product using them on blemishes would conceal them but it would also just emphasise them further. It also needs to be touched up at least once or twice throughout the day too which for me isn't really a problem but for some of you who have slightly more busy lives I can see how this would be a disadvantage. 

Negative aspects aside I do absolutely love this product as it hides my dark circles perfectly and brightens my under eye area which is what I really look for when purchasing a concealer so This will definitely be on my 'products to re-purchase' list. You can purchase this at Boots for £6.99.

Have you used the Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer? (No I didn't copy and paste that)? What are your views? Is this a concealer you will be purchasing?
