Hey everyone! Hope you are all okay! First of all I would like to apologize for my lack of blog posts, my laptop recently crashed and burned and I've been so busy with training for my new job and with all the sad news this past weekend I haven't really felt like blogging much. Today I thought I would return and do a fun little tag post which is The Summer Tag. I have done the Spring, Autumn and Winter tag so I thought why not to do the summer tag as it has been absolutely scorching in London the past couple of days! I haven't been tagged by anybody in particular to do this but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

1. What is your favorite thing about Summer? 
100% the amount of sun there is! I'm not too big on the heat as I'm quite self conscious and don't really like to show off my arms and legs that much so I do tend to be more covered up. However I love the sun and the BBQ scents and the fact that everyone smiles a lot more at each other when the sun is out and is a lot more positive in general. I also love that everything is moved outside as well. I'm currently using my brother's laptop and writing this post outside in my garden! It's just so lovely! 

2. Do you have a favorite summer drink? 
Pink Lemonade without a doubt has always been my favorite summer drink. ''Not too sweet, not too sour, just too pink' QUOTE THAT FILM! However at the moment I'm obsessed with the watermelon and strawberry coolers from Costa. So so delicious and super refreshing! 

3. Is there a special place you like to visit each summer? 
I love going to Homestead Heath in London as it's just so so beautiful and when you're on the greenery you can basically see the whole of London in front of you. It's just so beautiful and a perfect picnic spot with friends or a loved one too! 

4. What's your favorite make up look for summer? 
I like the really glowy look for summer. It's actually one of my favorite looks all year round but I love it more during the summer. I love pink cheeks and using my favorite Bourjois CC cream which is just super amazing during the hot weather. Depending on how I feel however, I sometimes won't bother with make up especially if it's way to hot as I hate the way it feels on my skin. 

5. Dresses or Skirts? 
Dresses! I love skirts too but I prefer dresses as I find they suit me a lot more than skirts do. Skirts tend to make me look and feel ridiculous but dresses are fine for me! 

6. Festivals or Vacations? 
I've never been to a festival in my almost 24 years of life which saddens me a lot so at the moment I have to say vacations as going away to an exciting new place and seeing different cultures and countries. As someone who's specialises in tourism that'll probably come as no surprise to you. 

7. What is your signature summer hairstyle? 
Not going to lie, I don't really tend to have a hairstyle for any season as I tend to either have my hair half up, half down or just fully down. However I do really want to experiment more with beachy waves this year so if you know any good hair care tools that will help me achieve this look then please leave them in the description below! 

8. What is your signature summer scent? 
At the moment I'm absolutely loving Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream. I finally managed to get my hands on this perfume a couple of weeks ago and been loving it ever since. It's just so so gorgeous! 

9. Pool or Beach? 
The beach all the way as I just prefer the atmosphere there and all the fun activities that go on. I also love hearing the waves of the sea in the distance as I sunbathe and feeling the cool breeze too. I don't tend to go to the beach a lot though which is definitely something I need to start working on! 

10. BBQ or Seafood? 
BBQ's all the way! I absolutely love the smell of BBQs and the fact it's a perfect excuse to get all your family and friends together as well. I do love seafood as well but I definitely have to lean more towards the BBQ's here. 

11. Do you tan or burn? 
I tan really easily. My natural skin tone is basically a tanned colour anyway so when I'm in the sun it just goes a billion times darker. My old boss from when I was working in Turkey last year basically said I need no sun to get a tan. 

12. Favorite Summer Song? 
This is a tricky one! I absolutely love Walking On Sunshine as it just puts me in such a good mood and I'm also loving Too Young To Remember by Florrie at the moment too as I think it's the perfect summer song. California Gurls by Katy Perry is also a winner for the summer too! 

So there we have it! A few questions to help you get to know me a bit better by knowing what things I love about Summer! I must say it's definitely not my favorite time of the year. In fact I think the only thing I really like about it is that you can do more things outdoors and the days are longer! However I can't really deal with the heat that well and prefer the Autumn/Winter months a lot more. I tag everyone reading this post to do this tag! If you have already done this post then please leave a link in the description below so that I can read it. 

Are you going anywhere nice this Summer?

Hey everyone! Hope you are all okay! So today is my final day of unemployed life until I start my new job tomorrow. I will be undertaking 5 weeks intense training first and then starting. I am so so scared. I had a panic attack this morning just after I woke up as I'm so nervous and when I'm really scared about something that's when I tend to have them. It was awful. I'm really excited too though so I just hope that I can calm down as I am honestly so excited to get back into work! But anyway before I ramble on too much I want to talk to you about the Love Me Beauty Boxes. I subscribed to these last year and then stopped and then recently decided to subscribe again and I absolutely love these boxes.

The concept of these boxes is hat you subscribe for however long you want so you can subscribe for one month like I do and then this will be a rolling fee each month, or you can subscribe for 3, 6 and 12 months where you'll have a rolling pre-paid fee. I opt for the one month as I just find it's easier for me and I don't get the boxes every month. After this you get around six credits each month and each of the products in the boutique is worth 1, 2, or 3 credits each. Once you've chosen the products you want and used up all your credits you can continue to pick more products but that's when you start paying. It's such a fab concept and I absolutely love these boxes as I think it's a lovely package to receive in the post. I received this box at the beginning of this month and I absolutely love every single product that I received that I felt I definitely had to do a review of this box. Keep reading to find out more about why I loved it so much.

The first thing I absolutely love about the boxes is the packaging! I absolutely love the fact that it comes in a gorgeous silver box! I think it makes the product look really classy and the boxes really do come in handy as well. I keep a couple in my drawers for my blushers and powders! They are so useful. The second thing I absolutely loved and was just so cute (you would have already seen this if you follow me on twitter) was this gorgeous little bag which held all the products I have ordered. I love the quote on the front as let's be honest it's definitely so so true! I think that this will also make a great travel make up bag as well! I just need to be careful not to get it covered in foundation!

Now for the fun bit! In the bag was all these gorgeous goodies in side! I already knew what they were as I had ordered them but to see them up close and personal was definitely a lovely experience. Inside the bag there was a cleanser, a fruit scrub, two nail polishes and a lip crayon (which I actually thought was an eyeshadow crayon when it was on the website oops!). Keep reading for my opinions on all these gorgeous products. 

I absolutely love Nails Inc polishes as I just think they are such good quality. I was very intrigued by the 'Plactiser Technology - No UV Needed' stickers on them but to be honest I haven't found these any different from normal polishes which doesn't bother me in the slightest. I love the mint/turquoise colour one in the shade 'Soho Place' as I think it is perfect for the summer months and it's a colour I think compliments my skin tone really well. The burgundy shade is definitely my favourite of the too but I'm saving this more for the Autumn/Winter months as it's one of my favourite colours for that time for the year. This is in the shade 'Kensington High Street'. As a London girl I absolutely love the fact that these are named after two places I tend to go to regularly! Both these nail polishes I find are super opaque after just one coat which is pretty rare with nail polishes and they last absolutely ages as well. Around a week and a half without chipping which I find pretty amazing for nail polishes! I'd highly recommend these two! 

First of all I'm sorry about the quality of this photo! I just couldn't get my camera to focus for some reason but the next two products in the bag were a Gentle Cleanse & Make Up Remover and a Fruit Scrub Exfoliator both from the brand 'Green People'. The Gentle Cleanse and Make Up Remover is one of the lightest products I think I've ever used on my face and it gets rid of my make up super quickly too. I've only used this a couple of times but I absolutely love it. I'll be reporting back with a full review soon so stay tuned. The Fruit Scrub Exfoliator on the other hand is something I've used a lot since I've got it and I absolutely love it! I never really use exfoliators on my skin but this one just leaves is so incredibly smooth and smells incredible too! Again I'll be reporting back with a full review soon! 

I'll be honest here and say that 'Green People' is a brand I'd never heard of before but I'll definitely be checking out a lot more of their products ESPECIALLY as they do not test on animals! When you buy products from this brand 10% of the net profit is donated to charity as well which I find absolutely amazing! I can't wait to check out more of their products in the near future. 

The final product in this box was a product from Lord and Berry. Lord and Berry always make an appearance in Love Me Beauty boxes and I have no complaints for this as they are incredibly amazing. I was super happy when I saw they had included a crayon lipstick in this box and even more happy when I saw the shade they included as I think this is the perfect nude shade for me. It's super pigmented, very glossy and lasts ages on the lips too. It's perfect for those days where I want to wear make up but stay very natural at the same time. The shade is Replay and I just love it so much. 


So there we have it, all the products I received in June's Love Me Beauty Box. I absolutely love everything in this box and I'll definitely be subscribing next month too as I think they are excellent value for money which isn't always the case with some beauty boxes I've had. Some have just sent me samples you can get in a magazine which I absolutely hate however you do not get that with this box! If you are interested in trialling these boxes for a month or subscribing for longer then just click HERE where you can head on over to the website and check out the different products you can get in each box. If you've subscribed to other beauty boxes let me know in the comments which ones as I'd love to check out others. 

Have you subscribed to Love Me Beauty before or tried any of these products in the past?

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a lovely weekend so far! Today I thought I would tell you about my favourite hair care product. I was scrolling through my blog the other day and I've realised that I don't actually speak much about hair products that I use. Truth be told I don't actually use that many as I don't tend to do a lot with my hair but I thought, why not tell you all about these.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far. I can't believe it's the 13th June already. I start my new job in 10 days. What?! I'm so incredibly nervous and scared and the more it creeps up the more scared, worried and anxious I get. I don't know if this is normal or not. I've been spending the day so far just reading through a ton of information for BA as there's so much to learn but thought I would take a break from that today to tell you all about my new favourite hair product and that is Invisibobbles.


Now I'm not going to lie here. I wasn't at all interested in purchasing invisibobbles originally at all. I just didn't understand the appeal as I'm sure you can see yourselves by the photo above, to me they just looked like old telephone wires and that just wasn't something I wanted to tie up in my hair. I saw them pop up all over the place, on different blogs, instagram etc. and I just thought they did look quite horrible. However as the months have gone on it's ridiculous how many people I've seen use them and one of my best friends even swears by them so I knew it was something that I had to try so I decided to purchase a pack of three from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and my goodness I wasn't left disappointed.

Invisibobbles are designed to tie the hair up without leaving those awful kinks you get with regular hair bobbles. I get these all the time with normal bobbles and it drives me mad. This wraps the hair perfectly and when you take it out there's no pulling or trouble and your hair is incredibly smooth and straight purely down to the space the invisibobble gives the individual hairs within the ponytail. I also love the fact that with these you can put them around your wrist and it doesn't leave a mark on the skin like normal bobbles do because they have been too tight. I absolutely love them. When you eventually start to use the hair bobbles they do tend to expand as you can see from the photo below and are definitely not as small as they are at first however this is definitely not a bad thing as I find this makes them easier to use and tie your hair up with.


Invisibobbles come in so many different colours however, as you can see from the photos above I opted for quite neutral every day colours that could blend in with my hair; black, brown and clear coloured ones however I gave my Mum the black bobbles to try so they aren't photographed. Once I am brave enough I will definitely opt for more however for now these three will do me and there are three bobbles in each pack as well which is perfect!


Overall I absolutely love these bobbles and I think they are the perfect summer accessory as they come in a variety of different colors meaning they can suit practically any outfit, and as you can wear them around your wrist all the time it means that if you ever get too hot because you have your hair down you can just quickly tie it up and voila you're good to go. I just think they are amazing and like I mentioned earlier in the post I got mine from Amazon, HERE, where you can purchase the three I got for £10.88 ex. p&p. You can also find other colors by browsing amazon too. 

Have you ever tried Invisibobbles before?

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all well! So before I start I'd just like to apologize for my absence over the past few days. I've just been really busy, stressed out and quite emotionally drained and I just wanted to take a little bit of time away from my laptop to sort of recover and get my head and stuff wrapped around a few new major changes in my life at the moment. There's also a couple of things I'd like to talk to you about to. This is going to be one of those posts where nothing is planned and I just sit down and type so I'm not sure how long this is going to be! Keep reading to find out what changes I'm planning on making soon!

If you've been following me on twitter or you know me personally then you will know I'm starting a new job in a few days. I start 5 weeks intense training on Tuesday and I'm so scared and nervous and it's just absolutely terrifying me! I've never really had a proper job like this before and even though it's something I've always wanted to it is definitely something that still scares me a lot too! But I won't moan, I'm super lucky to be given this opportunity and I just cannot wait to start!

Another reason why I haven't been blogging much this month is because I have had a serious case of bloggers block and unlike before when I would find something to blog about and blog for the sole purpose of getting a post out on time I want to be happy with the content that I am putting out there for all of you. I absolutely love my blog and enjoy blogging but it is definitely something that I want to start putting more effort into and I'm not going to lie here, for the past few months I have treated it like a job, but a job that I absolutely love and if I don't feel happy with a post I do get quite upset. I know that might sound a little bit pathetic but it's literally just the way I've been feeling lately. I am thinking of re-vamping my blog a little bit and I want to get a new blog design and make it a little bit more professional but one that is also still me and brings out my personality a little bit if that makes sense. Be sure to stay tuned to my blog and twitter (xbellefleurx) where I'll be announcing these changes.

The past few days I have been working on quite a lot of post ideas and there will be a lot of new posts coming your way in the next couple of weeks. I've also recently been thinking about re-starting my youtube channel. If you didn't already know I do have a youtube channel. I started it last February and posted three videos (one of which was a daily mix entry and I really don't have a clue what I was thinking when I did that) so if you would like to check that out then just click HERE. I'm going to try and vlog a little bit this weekend as I'm heading into London for West End Live which when all the west end shows in London perform little snippets of their shows in Trafalgar Square. It's a really good event and the atmosphere is amazing so if you can't afford tickets to a west end show but really want to see the case performing a few big numbers then definitely get yourself down there. If you can't, I'm going to be vlogging snippets from my day so be sure to subscribe. I filmed a video this morning which should be going up sometime next week if I can ever manage to edit it properly so make sure to stay tuned! If you've checked out my channel before then please comment on any one of the three videos already uploaded and be sure to hit subscribe!



I know starting a youtube is something I've always wanted to do but it's just a confidence thing with me. I am so incredibly show however I think this is something that can definitely bring out more confidence for me. It's just something I've always wanted to try. Yes you might be reading this and thinking 'that's a bit pathetic' and you might know me personally and be thinking, that's stupid and 'oh dear Fleur what are you doing' but life is way to short to think and ponder over things. I just want to start doing more and saying yes to more opportunities and seeing what I can do and what I can't do and I just love the blogging community so much so why not explore the youtube side of things as well?

I'll end this post here as it is definitely a lot longer than I thought it was going to be so thank you if you have read till this point! I just wanted to sit and update you all and I hope that you'll continue to support me on the next few adventures in my life. Thank you to each and everyone of you who have supported my blog, featured me in posts and just taken the time out of you day to comment on blog posts and tweet me about my blog. I really do appreciate it and like I said be sure to follow me on twitter (xbellefleurx).

Little Life/Blogging Update






Hey Everyone! Hope you are all well! So before I start I'd just like to apologize for my absence over the past few days. I've just been really busy, stressed out and quite emotionally drained and I just wanted to take a little bit of time away from my laptop to sort of recover and get my head and stuff wrapped around a few new major changes in my life at the moment. There's also a couple of things I'd like to talk to you about to. This is going to be one of those posts where nothing is planned and I just sit down and type so I'm not sure how long this is going to be! Keep reading to find out what changes I'm planning on making soon!

If you've been following me on twitter or you know me personally then you will know I'm starting a new job in a few days. I start 5 weeks intense training on Tuesday and I'm so scared and nervous and it's just absolutely terrifying me! I've never really had a proper job like this before and even though it's something I've always wanted to it is definitely something that still scares me a lot too! But I won't moan, I'm super lucky to be given this opportunity and I just cannot wait to start!

Another reason why I haven't been blogging much this month is because I have had a serious case of bloggers block and unlike before when I would find something to blog about and blog for the sole purpose of getting a post out on time I want to be happy with the content that I am putting out there for all of you. I absolutely love my blog and enjoy blogging but it is definitely something that I want to start putting more effort into and I'm not going to lie here, for the past few months I have treated it like a job, but a job that I absolutely love and if I don't feel happy with a post I do get quite upset. I know that might sound a little bit pathetic but it's literally just the way I've been feeling lately. I am thinking of re-vamping my blog a little bit and I want to get a new blog design and make it a little bit more professional but one that is also still me and brings out my personality a little bit if that makes sense. Be sure to stay tuned to my blog and twitter (xbellefleurx) where I'll be announcing these changes.

The past few days I have been working on quite a lot of post ideas and there will be a lot of new posts coming your way in the next couple of weeks. I've also recently been thinking about re-starting my youtube channel. If you didn't already know I do have a youtube channel. I started it last February and posted three videos (one of which was a daily mix entry and I really don't have a clue what I was thinking when I did that) so if you would like to check that out then just click HERE. I'm going to try and vlog a little bit this weekend as I'm heading into London for West End Live which when all the west end shows in London perform little snippets of their shows in Trafalgar Square.

Father's Day Mood Board


Hey Everyone! Hope you are all okay! Recently the lovely Alice over at House Of Fraser's home department contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in sharing some of their home products in a mood board. There were different themes and the one I thought would be good was to create a mood bored specifically for Father's Day. If you weren't already aware, Father's Day is on the 21st June which is a week tomorrow. Feels like just last week it was Mother's Day and that was in March! Time flies by! Anyway here are some of my choices on gifts I think will be perfect for Father's Day.

Biba Gold Embroidered Leopard Throw
I really liked the look of this design and I definitely think that it will be perfect for adding a bit of style to your Dad's room. I also think it looks quite manly. Most of the throws I've seen have a bit of a feminine touch but I think this looks really nice and if you Dad is the sort of person who likes throws and keeping himself warm like mine does then this will be perfect. If you like the look of this throw and are looking for more like this then click HERE to browse more throws and blankets from House Of Fraser.

Jo Malone London Tuberose Angelica Cologne Intense
I am a massive fan of Jo Malone fragrances but I never knew they had a few aftershaves for men as well! Even though this is quite a pricey brand the scents are just amazing and the packaging is just beautiful. This would look lovely on your Dad's beside table I reckon!

Ted Baker Check Washbag
When it comes to washbags and make up bags Ted Baker is a brand I've found to be very useful as the bags are always such good quality! If your Dad is planning on going on holiday or just needs somewhere to keep all his razors and stuff together then this would be perfect for him.

Fred Perry Casual Bomber Jacket
Despite the summer season finally arriving in the UK, the UK never gets beyond 40+ and sometimes the nights can be quite chilly, however still way to warm for a thick jacket. I absolutely love bomber jackets as they are really lightweight and perfect for those chilly summer evenings.

Baylis Harding Black Pepper Ginseng Grooming Box Set
If your Dad likes to keep himself clean and likes to groom himself, (I know mine does) then this little cheap and cheerful set will be perfect for him as it contains body wash, aftershave balm, shower gel and face wash. Again this would be perfect if your Dad has a business trip somewhere for a couple of days or is going on holiday.

Boombox Vibration Speakers
If your Dad likes his music then why not get him a pair of speakers that he'll be able to take everywhere with him? These can be attached to any household object so he can have his favourite tunes playing everywhere at anytime in any place! I just love this idea.

Ted Baker Plain Bi-Fold Wallet
Wallets are always an amazing present if you have no idea what to get your Dad. I buy these as presents for the men in my family all the time as they are just simple and one of those things he will always need. Like I mentioned with the wash-bag, Ted Baker items are just amazing so you'll know this will last him a very long time. These are available in black and brown which I know are boring colours but since when are men fussy anyway?

Thomas Sabo Rebel At Heart Black Ceramic Bezel Watch
Let's be honest here, Dad's aren't exactly known for having the best time keeping so if he doesn't have a watch there's so much choice out there at the moment and I really liked the look of this one on the House of Fraser website as I thought it looked very simple and chic!

Jack Jones Short Sleeve Button Through Check Shirt
With summer here at last why not treat your Dad to some new clothes and update his wardrobe a little bit? I absolutely love checked shirts at the moment and I think this red design will be perfect for the summer and as it's short sleeved and really bright and nice.

Linea Pocket Watch Icon Cushion
I absolutely love things with pocket watches on them. Don't ask me why I just love how old fashioned and stuff it looks. However with the cream design and the black watch on the front I think this cushion is perfect for just placing on your Dad's sofa or even on his bed. If he's into this sort of thing I reckon this will be perfect. If you want to check out more cushions House Of Fraser has to offer then just click HERE.

So there we have it, 10 gift ideas I think will be perfect for Father's Day. House Of Fraser I know is a bit expensive but I have tried to include products here that will cater for every budget. Make sure to click on the item name where you'll be taken straight over to the House Of Fraser website and find out more information. Leave a comment below telling me which item here is your favourite or which item here your Dad would personally like.
 
Have you got anything special planned for Father's Day?

Hey Everyone! So it's finally June meaning that Summer is finally here! Hooray! Because of this I decided that today I would do a post telling you 50 small things to be happy about. I have noticed a lot on social media that there are a lot of you just finishing uni, or exams and are still slightly stressed out and upset and scared about what's to come. This is totally normal. I was in exactly your position not too long ago and it's not an easy thing to let go of, however I feel like having a little list of happy things can help put your mind at ease and help relax you. So before I ramble on a bit too much (I really need to stop doing this) here's 50 small things to be happy about.
1. Your favourite shows returning and releasing a new season or episode on Netflix.
2. Getting complimented on your hair, make up, outfit, how good you are at something.
3. The satisfaction of knowing you can wake up naturally the next day with no alarm
4. Weird and wonderful conversations with your best friend/other half.
5. The smell of freshly cut grass. It's just the best scent of the summer is it not?!
6. The feeling of freshly shaved legs.
7. That satisfaction when your application of make up is practically perfect.
8. When something turns out a lot better than you expected it to.
9. Singing along to your favourite music and getting every single word correct! Go you!
10. Getting an unexpected package in the post.
11. Finding something you absolutely love on sale in a shop.
12. Being woken up by the sun shining on your face! Yay for a beautiful day!
13. Fresh bedding.
14. Seeing pretty flowers in every garden and park you walk in.
15. Being able to finally eat ice cream every single day.
16. Your new band or singer releasing new music.
17. Finding out you've unintentionally lost weight and are finally able to fit into those old jeans!
18. The satisfaction of when you've cleaned your room/house.
19. When someone serves you in a shop and says 'Have a nice day'.
20. Those days where you wake up and can spend it doing exactly what you want, when you want!
21. When someone leaves you a lovely comment on your blog.
22. When you go to the gym or out for a run then come home and realise that you actually enjoyed exercising!
23. Coming across a new band or singer who's music you absolutely love!
24. Baking something with your Mum or Dad and them still getting you to lick out the bowl. A skill many of us have perfected over the years I'm sure!
25. Making plans to go to your favourite restaurant for dinner.
26. Being able to get a seat on the train or bus.
27. Having a movie night with your favourite films.
28. That feeling when you have a negative mind-set but then prove yourself completely wrong.
29. New stationary! Hello blogging and to-do lists!
30. When someone says please and thank you! Hooray for people still having good manners!  
So there we have it, just 30 little things to be happy about and realise when perhaps you are in a bit of a grump. I think this will be something that will be so lovely to look back on when you're having a bit of a bad day. Just remember, whatever bad things you are going through at the moment your life will improve and get better. I've had a pretty tough year so far and knowing I have a new job, amazing friends, and music to help me put me in a good mood makes everything worthwhile.
What cheers you up when you're having a bad day?

Hey everyone! So today I thought I would another light hearted post for you all. I've been watching a lot of beauty videos over the past few weeks and watching how people do their make up and everything and it got me thinking about beauty things I'm completely rubbish at. I've seen this on a few blogs before and even in a few YouTube videos so I thought why not do my own version of this? I'm sure there are lots of you out there who will be interested in this post as let's face it the majority of us blog about beauty and show off products that we have been using but I'm sure there's lots to do with beauty where we get a bit stressed out because it doesn't turn out the way we want it or we are totally useless at it. So before I ramble on a bit too much let's get into it.

Eyebrows: This definitely has to come first. I am completely hopeless at doing anything with my eyebrows. I literally cannot do anything with them. I'm always pluck them the wrong way so I literally just leave it to the professionals now. In fact and this will probably shock a lot of you but I actually didn't do anything with my eyebrows until I was around 19/20. They were absolutely awful and look hideous but plucking them hurt way to much, I didn't want to get them waxed as I had heard so many horror stories about that and the thought of having them threaded really did make me want to scream. I was terrified. I remember my mum, Aunt and me all going out shopping and they both got their eyebrows done and I just point blank refused to get mine done as I have such a low pain threshold and was terrified. Now of course I am totally used to it and even though I dread getting them done it's worth it in the end.

Doing My Own Hair: I'm absolutely hopeless at doing my own hair. Whether it's going to get it trimmed to styling it, I just never seem to get it right. I can never curl or straighten it properly. Whenever I put it up there's always a lumpy bit at the top and even when I put it half up half down it's always a mess and just doesn't last long. That's why I literally just have it down and don't bother to do anything with it. Even tying it up takes absolute ages purely because my hair is so thick that no hair ties ever go around my hair properly.

False Eyelashes: Not going to lie here, I'm not a massive false eyelash wearer. I'm just not a huge fan of them however there have been a couple of occasions where I have tried to wear them if I am going for a more girly fluttery eye look and it just hasn't worked out at all. I've ended up looking awful and I just don't find that this is the sort of thing I can pull off at all. However with the Benefit's Roller Lash now in my life I find no need to even take a second glance at false eyelashes! Yay for Benefit!

Not Applying Make Up Properly: Yeah, you'll never ever see me with a full face of make up. Ever. I always completely forget something. This could be eyeliner, lip gloss, blusher, powder, I always forget something. In fact the only things I actually do remember at times are foundation, concealer and powder. Sometimes I forget a primer and just go straight in with the moisturiser and then foundation. I'm honestly HOPELESS! It's this sort of thing that makes me glad I hardly blog about beauty at times as I never ever feel like that's what I should be blogging about as I'm useless! I do anyway of course because I still use a ton of products.

French Plaits: Ever since I was a little girl I have loved having plaits in my hair. I go to bed all the time with some sort of plait in my hair. This could be pigtails or a fishtail braid. However when it comes to the French plait I epically fail and I have no idea why. I just cannot do it. I have tried and failed epically. If you are able to do this with no problems whatsoever please teach me! It's just so fiddly!

Painting My Nails: Now this is quite a tricky one for me anyway as I have a horrible habit of biting my nails when I get anxious or nervous. It's literally what I do to cope and it's something I haven't been able to change. I have cut down on this a lot though so my nails are in fairly good condition at the moment. However, I am hopeless at painting them. They always smudge, or I'm not happy with how I've done a certain hand. I just can't do them and I have quite a lot of nail polish in my room too which tend to go to waste because in the end I just give up. I definitely have to improve on this as I do like painting my nails. I'm just rubbish at it.

Winged Eyeliner: So normal eyeliner I am absolutely fine at. I can do it just find but if I am ever going out anywhere and try the little flicks I might as well just put on a Halloween costume as well. I'm just useless at it and I end up looking horrific and very often end up having to redo most of my make up which is a waste of product, time and money! I just can't be bothered trying this anymore. This is why if I had all the money in the world I'd hire a personal make up artist!

Washing Make Up Brushes: Let's be honest here, for those of us who wear foundation, concealer and powder every single day, how much of a chore is it to actually wash all of our brushes? I tend to give my brushes a wash every two weeks and even then sometimes I forget. Oops. I know it sounds really unhygienic and I'm sorry if you're sitting there reading this and totally disgusted. I am getting better though and setting myself little reminders on my phone every couple of weeks just to remind me to do them. There is after all no better feeling than applying make up with freshly cleaned brushes. Everything just applies a lot easier and better too.



So there's a longer than expecting list of beauty things that I am totally useless at. I've really enjoyed writing this post and have had a good old chuckle to myself as I've been writing it as well. Let me know in the comments if there's anything here that you can relate to.

What beauty things do you tend to struggle with?

Beauty Things I Suck At

French Plaits: Ever since I was a little girl I have loved having plaits in my hair. I go to bed all the time with some sort of plait in my hair. This could be pigtails or a fishtail braid. However when it comes to the French plait I epically fail and I have no idea why. I just cannot do it. I have tried and failed epically. If you are able to do this with no problems whatsoever please teach me! It's just so fiddly!

Painting My Nails: Now this is quite a tricky one for me anyway as I have a horrible habit of biting my nails when I get anxious or nervous. It's literally what I do to cope and it's something I haven't been able to change. I have cut down on this a lot though so my nails are in fairly good condition at the moment. However, I am hopeless at painting them. They always smudge, or I'm not happy with how I've done a certain hand. I just can't do them and I have quite a lot of nail polish in my room too which tend to go to waste because in the end I just give up. I definitely have to improve on this as I do like painting my nails. I'm just rubbish at it.

Winged Eyeliner: So normal eyeliner I am absolutely fine at. I can do it just find but if I am ever going out anywhere and try the little flicks I might as well just put on a Halloween costume as well. I'm just useless at it and I end up looking horrific and very often end up having to redo most of my make up which is a waste of product, time and money! I just can't be bothered trying this anymore. This is why if I had all the money in the world I'd hire a personal make up artist!

Washing Make Up Brushes: Let's be honest here, for those of us who wear foundation, concealer and powder every single day, how much of a chore is it to actually wash all of our brushes? I tend to give my brushes a wash every two weeks and even then sometimes I forget. Oops. I know it sounds really unhygienic and I'm sorry if you're sitting there reading this and totally disgusted. I am getting better though and setting myself little reminders on my phone every couple of weeks just to remind me to do them. There is after all no better feeling than applying make up with freshly cleaned brushes. Everything just applies a lot easier and better too.



So there's a longer than expecting list of beauty things that I am totally useless at. I've really enjoyed writing this post and have had a good old chuckle to myself as I've been writing it as well. Let me know in the comments if there's anything here that you can relate to.

What beauty things do you tend to struggle with?

Hey everyone! So today I thought that I would talk to you all about my favourite instagram accounts. I think I did one of these either at the end of last year or the beginning of this year, I can't quite remember however instagram has been an app I have sort of neglected since that post was done. I don't know why because I have certainly been taking lots of photos. I just haven't really been going onto instagram that much. That has changed over the past few days though, I've been posting photos like nobody's business so I thought today why not do a post consisting of five of my current favourite instagram accounts. Enjoy.
 
Emshelx
I couldn't do this post without including the lovely Em from Emtalks. Everything about this girl from her figure, to her blog posts to her photos are just to die for. Em has recently been spending a lot of time travelling around the world and I have loved keeping up to date with all her adventures on not only her blog but also her instagram. She also has the most amazing figure and fashion sense, both of which are always documented on her instagram account. I am a little envious I will admit but if you're not following Em I'd highly recommend it.
 
LivPurvis
I started following Olivia's instagram a couple of months ago. I've been a long time lover of her blog 'What Olivia Did' so I don't know how I wasn't following her instagram sooner but I absolutely love it. It's so bright and colourful. Olivia also has the cutest fashion sense as well very much like my own with pretty little dresses and collars and I absolutely love seeing how she styles them up on her instagram and blog. She's such a beaut and such a nice person too!
 
KayleighJCouture
Pretty sure I mention Kayleigh in every favourites post I do. I'm actually starting to worry that I come across as a bit of stalker. Sorry Kayleigh! But in all seriousness her instagram is definitely one of my favourites. Her photos are so bright and white and clear. I absolutely love her fashion sense as well and she's posted a lot of outfit photos on her instagram recently as well which I love. My bank account doesn't love it however. Kayleigh has also been travelling a bit recently, she's recently been on a holiday to Mykonos in Greece which looked absolutely heavenly and is now on a mini bloggers trip to Mallorca so I'm loving keep up to date with all her photos and outfit posts. Definitely a gal you should all be following.
 
Sam Galton MUA
I came across the gorgeous Samantha through twitter as I saw she was the make up artist for Collabro, Lucy Kay and their support act Philippa Hanna on their tour at the beginning of this year. I absolutely adored the make up looks she created on both the girls. I then decided to follow her instagram account to see the different looks she creates on other people and absolutely fell in love with the looks she posted. They look virtually flawless and I honestly wish I could hire her to do make up on me! As well as being an amazing make up artist she is an incredible artist in general too. You can see some of the things she's worked on if you head on over to her instagram. Sam is also another lady who tends to be very motivational for me when it comes to fitness. Definitely worth checking out.
 
CarlyRowena
Carly is one of the few health and fitness bloggers I actually follow on instagram. I absolutely love her account as not only does she give me serious body envy but she also posts photos with really motivating captions that want to get up and move. If you read my last post about wanting to become a lot more healthier and fitter then I'm sure you'll agree this account is just perfect for me.
 
So there we have it. Five instagram accounts I would highly recommend checking out. I am always following and checking out different instagram accounts so I will definitely make this post a monthly thing as I know a lot of people like reading stuff like this and coming across new people. Like I said at the beginning I have been getting into instagram a lot more lately so if you want to check out the things I post and love and what I get up to on a daily basis then head on over to xbellefleurx where you will be able to see all my weird and wonderful photos! If you have instagram then make sure to leave you links in the comments section below where I will check them out.

Sidenote: My laptop is currently in repair so blog posts will be fairly slow over the next week or so! I have lots of new content coming up though so be sure you're following me on bloglovin' HERE to know when I publish a new post.

Sidenote: My laptop is currently in repair so blog posts will be fairly slow over the next week or so! I have lots of new content coming up though so be sure you're following me on bloglovin' HERE to know when I publish a new post. 
Hey everyone! So today I thought I would do a blog post about all the exciting things June has to offer and why I reckon it is going to be the best month of the year I've had so far! If you read my post recently then you will know that the 2015 so far hasn't gotten off to a great start. I won't go into the details here as I want this to be a positive post filled with no negativity. However there are so many amazing things happening this month both in my life and just general other fun things happening that I'm excited about. These are five of the most important things I am looking forward to this month. 

Pretty Little Liars Is Back: Okay, yes I know this might seem really silly to be excited that a TV show is coming back but I absolutely love Pretty Little Liars and I'm so super excited that season six has restarted. The last season was absolutely amazing and definitely the best yet. The first episode of the new season is already up on netflix for those of you who still haven't seen it. IT'S AMAZING. I'm so excited for the next episode! Only four days to go. 

Theatre Trips: Recently I have been saving a lot of money from all the small little jobs I've done and decided to treat myself to a few trips to the west end here and there. Last month I went to see Miss Saigon which was absolutely amazing and if you haven't seen it I'd highly recommend it. However I also want to see Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera. I've recently booked tickets to see Jersey Boys too which I am so excited about as I absolutely love Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and I loved the Jersey Boys film so to experience the actual story live on stage will be incredible. I just feel that as much as I don't want to spend money I want to enjoy my life and have a bit of fun too. I am only 23 after all! I should be having fun and enjoying my life! 

Leading A Healthier Lifestyle: So I know this is something that I should probably be doing 99.9% of the time but I will be honest here and say I don't. My diet isn't that great and neither is my fitness routine however I've been watching a lot of videos recently and making little changes to improve my lifestyle and I have already noticed such a difference in not just my body but also the way I feel daily. I feel less tired and less groggy and just feel like I have tons more energy so I look forward to seeing the changes over the next couple of months. It won't be easy but I'm excited to see all the changes both mentally and physically.

Working Harder On My Blog: Despite my blog content not lacking in how much I post I'm not happy with it. I've definitely been a person recently who has done a couple of posts just for the sake of having a post out on time and I haven't been happy with them. This month however I want to stop that. I'm going to sit down more and find inspiration and try and come up with new ideas for blog posts as well. I was considering taking a little break from it but I've realised that I love blogging way to much for that so I will just take every second or third day to just take a step back and find inspiration and even just to read and find new blogs as I've been severely lacking when it comes to reading blogs recently. 

Starting My New Job With British Airways: I've saved the best thing about this month till last here. I start my job on the 23rd June which I am so incredibly excited about as well as super nervous about. I graduated university in 2013 with a degree in tourism management and previous studied tourism at college. However it's taken me two years to find this job. I have been doing various jobs and if you've been reading my blog for the past year know that I went abroad to Turkey and worked as a kids representative for six months. The travel industry is something that I've always been interested in since I was a kid as I absolutely love airports and the entire atmosphere in them. I know some of you reading this probably think that this is weird and that it's a rubbish job and I should aspire to do more but this is something I'm really passionate about and I'm super excited to finally start my career. 

June will finally be the month that I can work towards something both career wise and blog wise. I really can't wait to start living my life the way I've always imagined and finally be happy with everything. Sorry if this post has bored you a little bit but it's just something I wanted to write about just so I can look back if I'm having a bit of a negative moment and remember what it is I'm working towards! 

What are you excited for this month? 
Hugs and Kisses

So I know that I am extremely late on the bandwagon by reviewing this foundation but I am so so SO glad I finally have it in my collection. Only having a few casual basis jobs that don't pay much and being a blogger sometimes is so incredibly difficult as you see all these amazing products being reviewed and then you look at the price and you're like woah! However, I did save up everything I've been earning over the past few months to treat myself to a few things, one obviously being this foundation. Life's too short right? So with that in mind I headed to Oxford Street around 3 weeks ago, popped into Selfridges where the lovely girl in the NARS section matched me and sent me on my way with this foundation! Keep on reading to find out my thoughts below. 

First thing I would like to talk about is the packaging. I absolutely love the packaging. I think it looks so sleek and luxurious in it's glass bottle. I will say that it is smaller than I expected it to be which I haven't decided is a good thing or a bad thing yet. Like with most other youtubers and bloggers I absolutely hated the fact it didn't come with a pump. However I decided to buy a pump alongside this foundation too as I was just way to nervous to walk away without one. I am definitely one of those people who will definitely end up pouring way to much on the back of my hand and wasting it all so a pump is definitely idyllic. The disadvantage of buying the pump is that the lid will then go to waste because it doesn't fit back on. One of my biggest pet peeves is not having lids on things properly. I know it sounds silly but that's just one of the things that annoys me a little bit. However it is definitely worth having as you don't have to worry about overusing the foundation. 


The shade that I was matched up too was Barcelona. This foundation is in their medium range and has slightly golden/peach undertone too it.  Probably one of my favourite things about this foundation is the name as it's one of my favourite places in the world. If you have been reading my blog for a long time then I'm sure you know my love for travel so the name of this really is perfect for me. The woman in Selfridges (I really want to mention her name but I can't remember it...Boo!!) actually took out two shades for me to decide upon. The other shade which I can't remember the name of oops, was slightly darker than my skin tone purely because the woman was looking ahead to when I go on holiday and stuff and said it would be perfect for when I tan. However I decided against that one as I'm not going on holiday at all this year so I pretty much won't tan at all. I absolutely love this colour though as it blends into my skin tone perfectly.


I was definitely gullible in thinking the name 'sheer glow' meant that it was exactly that sheer and glowy. I would definitely classify this as a full coverage foundation which is definitely something I am not used too. Did that put me off? No Way! I absolutely love the way this makes my skin looks. It leaves a not to matte, not to dewy finish on my skin which I absolutely love as I can just leave it like that or if I properly want to mattify it and keep it in place all day I can apply my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder on over the top which leaves a really radiant look and really does make my skin look amazing. I really do find that my skin looks a lot more hydrated and radiant and even the improves the tone of it as well. When doing my research for this post I found that this is down to the anti-oxidants within the foundation that, combined together, are there to basically improve the look and condition of the skin.

When I apply this foundation I find that one or two pumps normally does the trick. It also doesn't make my skin look or feel cakey which is a major bonus for me. This foundation definitely lasts a long time on the skin too and is perfect for those days out or evenings out. You definitely don't need to worry about this foundation slipping and sliding all around your face either which is a bonus especially if you want to wear this foundation on a night out. You don't really want to worry about popping to the bathroom every 10 minutes just to make sure your foundation is on properly. My skin is quite dry too which can be incredibly visible but like I've mentioned above already this foundation really does make it look more hydrated and radiant.


So in conclusion to this review do I think that this foundation lives up to all the hype surrounding it? Absolutely! Even though I was worried about parting with £34.00 (£31 for the foundation and an extra £3 for the pump) it was highly worth it. I have received loads of compliments since wearing it which I have absolutely been loving especially as my skin hasn't been in the best condition recently. No matter what your skin type I honestly think this foundation will be amazing for you especially if you love medium/high coverage. I don't think this is a foundation that I will be wearing every single day as I do want it to last a long time and save it for those special occasions however I still think it's an amazing foundation if you do want to wear it everyday. If you are interested in this foundation then you can head on over HERE to purchase it.

I've had this post sitting in my drafts for a while now so I thought why not just publish it and get it out of the way. If you follow me on pinterest then you will know something I like to do a lot is publish inspirational quotes. I also post a lot of quotes on twitter and occasionally on instagram too. I normally head on over to look at quotes if I'm having a bad day and need just a little bit of inspiration to help me see things in a better light and just to help get me through the day. However there have been moments where I've been sitting with no internet or anything and just wishing something would appear in front of me. This is one of the reasons why I think setting quotes as your phone wallpaper is just such an amazing idea. Here is a collage of some of my favourite quotes with links at the end as to wear you can find them!



There Are So Many Reasons To Be Happy//I Can & I Will//Cultivate Kindness//Surround Yourself With Inspiring Beings//The Only Way To Do Great Work Is To Love What You Do//Are You Really Going To Let Fear Control Your Life//You Can Be The Ripest Juciest Peach//Everything's Going To Be Super Duper//Say Yes To New Adventures.

So there are a bunch of inspirational quotes that you can set as your phone background and then everytime you get your phone out you can just look down and can instantly be inspired and hopefully you'll realise you day isn't that bad. I currently have the first picture in the collage as my phone background. I tend to be very scared and always hold back from doing the things I want to do because they scare me. It's something that just inspires me to take more chances and stop being so afraid. If you haven't got pinterest yet I'd highly recommend it as you can literally find quotes about anything and everything on there. Be sure to click on each of the names of the quotes above where you'll be able to save them to your phone and set them as your background. If you are using a laptop, another option is saving them and emailing them to yourself and saving them to your phone from that if it makes life easier for you.

Make sure to check out my pinterest over HERE where you'll be able to find the board that all these photos are posted on. Be sure to leave your pinterest accounts and favourite inspirational quotes in the comments below.

What do  you get inspiration from if you're having a bad day or feeling a little sad and negative?

Wallpaper Inspiration For Your Phone







I've had this post sitting in my drafts for a while now so I thought why not just publish it and get it out of the way. If you follow me on pinterest then you will know something I like to do a lot is publish inspirational quotes. I also post a lot of quotes on twitter and occasionally on instagram too. I normally head on over to look at quotes if I'm having a bad day and need just a little bit of inspiration to help me see things in a better light and just to help get me through the day. However there have been moments where I've been sitting with no internet or anything and just wishing something would appear in front of me. This is one of the reasons why I think setting quotes as your phone wallpaper is just such an amazing idea. Here is a collage of some of my favourite quotes with links at the end as to wear you can find them!



There Are So Many Reasons To Be Happy//I Can & I Will//Cultivate Kindness//Surround Yourself With Inspiring Beings//The Only Way To Do Great Work Is To Love What You Do//Are You Really Going To Let Fear Control Your Life//You Can Be The Ripest Juciest Peach//Everything's Going To Be Super Duper//Say Yes To New Adventures.

So there are a bunch of inspirational quotes that you can set as your phone background and then everytime you get your phone out you can just look down and can instantly be inspired and hopefully you'll realise you day isn't that bad. I currently have the first picture in the collage as my phone background. I tend to be very scared and always hold back from doing the things I want to do because they scare me. It's something that just inspires me to take more chances and stop being so afraid. If you haven't got pinterest yet I'd highly recommend it as you can literally find quotes about anything and everything on there. Be sure to click on each of the names of the quotes above where you'll be able to save them to your phone and set them as your background. If you are using a laptop, another option is saving them and emailing them to yourself and saving them to your phone from that if it makes life easier for you.

Make sure to check out my pinterest over HERE where you'll be able to find the board that all these photos are posted on. Be sure to leave your pinterest accounts and favourite inspirational quotes in the comments below.

What do  you get inspiration from if you're having a bad day or feeling a little sad and negative?

Hey Everyone! Welcome To June! I am so incredibly excited for this month! So much is happening and I just couldn't be more excited. Two of the major things being the fact that I start my new job with British Airways later in the month and that Pretty Little Liars returns! Could this month get any better? I think not! Anyway, without me rambling on too much today I wanted to do a bit of a light hearted post. I was talking to my best friend the other day and we were talking about all the struggles and problems us girls go through. Seriously though, do men not realise how easy they have it? Anyway here are 25 female problems I'm sure you'll all relate to.

1. Getting your eyebrows done and having one always look better than the other. I got mine done the other day and I can't get over how different they look to each other ! It's so frustrating!

2. Buying a ton of hair bobbles and hair grips and them all suddenly deciding to take a permanent vacation. WHERE DO YOU ALL DISAPPEAR TOO?!

3. Sitting down to paint your nails, getting half way through and then having to go to the toilet. Just me this happens too?

4. Getting up in the morning, deciding on an outfit and then 10 minutes before you're due to leave the house changing your mind on said outfit.

5. Deciding to eat junk food on a day where you're feeling like poo but only ending up feeling even more like poo.

6. Putting on lip gloss and having your long hair down on a day where it's incredibly windy. Class A disaster.

7. Not smiling and having every person in existence ask what's wrong. I'm sorry that my resting bitch face is such a problem to you.

8. Buying shampoo/shower gel one day and going in the next day and the bottle half empty thanks to your mum/sister. Frustrating!

9. Thinking that you're one size in clothing and then going into every single shop to try on clothes resulting in you finding out you're everything from a size 10 to a size 14. Why are shops becoming increasingly worse with clothes sizes?!

10. The happiest part of a long and difficult day being the moment you can get home and take your bra off! Freedom like nothing else!

11. Getting annoyed or angry at a guy and them asking if it's 'that time of the month'. NO YOU'RE BEING ANNOYING. BE GONE!

12. Wearing a light coloured top or a top with a light colour collar and then realising you have a ton of foundation/powder on it. Thank goodness for my long hair at times!

13. Thinking you're Beyonce the moment you step into the shower.

14. Forgetting about a package being delivered and having to go downstairs to answer the door in your hideous pyjamas and no make up. Why?!

15. Shaving your legs and then asking all your family members to feel how silky smooth they are whilst trying not to be creepy at the same time of course.

16. Getting up, seeing the sun is shining and deciding to wear a sleeveless top and shorts/skirt/cute dress just to find out it's actually freezing out there. SUN WHY DO YOU LIE?!

17. Going a week/month with practically flawless skin and then suddenly having a spot the size of Jupiter appear in the most awkward of places very often on a day you've planned something extremely important.

18. Going shopping for essentials which should add up to around £10 and coming back out with £80 worth of products. Erm...oops?

19. Hair. The constant battle of long or short, straight or curly, dark or light. Making the decision and then realising you should have left it how it was or made the opposite decision. We're literally never happy!

20. Not shaving your legs for a long time and then planning a night out where you'll realise you need a plough to get rid of all the hair. Oh the effort.

21. One for the long haired girls...giving your arms a good work out by trying to get the perfect ponytail/bun. Who said beauty wasn't exercise?

22. Perfecting the perfect make up look/hair style late at night when there's nothing to do and nowhere to go and not being able to ever repeat that success.

23. Hmm...10 more minutes in bed and spend the day with greasy hair or jump out of bed and have fresh clean hair...Which sounds more appealing?

24. Finding hair absolutely everywhere. Down plug-holes, on the bedroom floor, on the bathroom floor, in the bathroom sink...it's disgusting!

25. Deciding to step out for 10 minutes and go to the shops wearing no make up and the most unattractive outfit in the world and bumping into absolutely everyone you know. WHY?!

There is so much many more I could include here but I'll save that for a rainy day instead and end this post here. I've definitely enjoyed writing this and even made myself chuckle at times. Us girls really do struggle don't we? I hope you enjoyed this post and if you would like to see a part two let me know in the comments below!

Can you relate to any of these problems?
