Heya everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and an especially lovely Mothering Sunday! If you are mothers yourselves I hope you got absolutely spoilt rotten. Mine was unfortunately sleeping most of the day and then woke up to go to work so I didn't really see much of her but she loved her presents so I guess that is something. Yesterday I posted my March Beauty Favorites. If you enjoyed reading that but are wondering where the skincare favorites were then look no further. Carry on reading for the skincare products that I have been loving throughout March.


Origins GinZing Moisturiser - Link
I know I only reviewed this product two days ago but I absolutely love it and since it was one of my favorites throughout March I've decided to include it here. Not only does this moisturiser have an absolutely incredibly citrus scent but it is very lightweight, extremely hydrating and makes a perfect base for make up as well. It feels really cooling on the skin which is perfect for getting rid of any puffiness anywhere on your face and will suit almost every skin type apart from super dry skin. Head on over HERE to check out my full review as to why it might not be best for those of you with dry skin. It is however perfect for my skin and even though the price tag is slightly high at £23, it is definitely something I will keep on repurchasing.


Maybelline Baby Lips in Mint Fresh - Link
Maybelline Baby Lips were one of the most hyped up lip balms throughout 2013. Six were released, three non-tinted lipbalms and three tinted ones. All of them nourish and hydrate the lips and protect them from dryness and chapping. Throughout March my favorite baby lips to use was the Minty Fresh one. Not only does this lipbalm smell amazing but it's the only non-tinted lip balm that feels like it is working. It really hydrates my lips and protects it from dryness. When you apply it there is a tingling feeling on your lips which I wasn't to sure about at first but I find that this means it is actually working. I apply this every night before bed and my lips are left feeling supersoft in the morning. Priced at only £2.99 it is definitely one of the best lip balms out there. I have reviewed three others from the collection HERE if you are interested and haven't yet tried them.


The Little Bubble Co Vanilla Biscuit Shower Gel - Link
Whilst in the supermarket shopping with my Dad I decided to head on over to the beauty aisles and spotted this absolutely gorgeous shower gel. On the stand they had four different scents which I can't remember the full names of but I remember that they were Mango, Coconut and Strawberry and obviously the one I purchased which is Vanilla Biscuit. The mango and vanilla one smelt the nicest and considering I have enough Mango scented skin care things to last me a lifetime now, I decided to purchase the Vanilla Biscuit and it smells absolutely incredible, just think of freshly baked vanilla cupcakes. It leaves my skin feeling super soft and really hydrates and nourishes the skin. This stuff lasts absolute ages and I'll definitely be purchasing a couple to take away to Turkey with me. Priced at £2.99 it's honestly amazing value for money.


St Ives Apricot Scrub - Link
When it comes to face scrubs I never really use them anymore which is quite surprising as I used to always use them. However it got to the point where I felt like my skin was too clean. By that I mean I just felt like the skin had been stripped of all it's natural oils and I just wasn't liking how my skin felt at the end of it. I also started using hot cloth cleansers and I felt like the clothes exfoliated my skin enough to the point where I didn't need a scrub. This month I came across the St Ives Apricot Scrub and I absolutely love it. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth and radiant but doesn't strip the skin of all it's natural oils. I only use this once a week as a special sort of treatment for me skin. I absolutely love it. I will be doing a full review of this soon. This can be purchased for £4.29 at Superdrug.


Weleda Sea Buckthron Hand Cream - Link
The product that is photographed isn't actually the full size. I got this product in my latest Love Me Beauty Box and it was a 10ML sample. Even though I absolutely love this hand cream in terms of how moisturizing and how hydrating it leaves my skin, I absolutely loathe the scent. It smells like licorice which has always been one of my least favorite scents in the whole world and is really not appealing. However, the quality of this hand cream is amazing. It contains certain ingredients like vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids, sea buckthorn and seaseme oils to give the skin an intense moisture boost. It also repairs any damage that is done to the skin on the hands which is down to the non-greasy formulation. The normal price of this hand cream is £9.95 and I definitely think it is worth every penny. 

So that's all the skincare products I have been loving throughout March. If you would like to see full reviews on the last three items that I mentioned then please let me know in the comments. Also let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think of them yourselves. Stay tuned to my blog as I will be posting my current non-beauty favorites in a post which is something I rarely ever do so I hope you will enjoy reading it. 

Hugs and Kisses

Heya everyone! So hope you are all having a lovely Mothers Day. My Mum is was unfortunate enough to be working last night so she has actually spent most of today in bed sleeping and is working again tonight. I haven't really managed to spend that long with her but she has been treated and spoilt by my brother and I which is good. Since I've had the majority of today free I decided to do a post I usually always forget to do until the very last day of the month, my March favorites. I've used quite a lot of new products this month that I have been loving so I have decided that I will split this into three posts. March Makeup, March Skincare and my March Random Favorites. Now after that lengthy ramble, lets get into the post. I have already done reviews on a lot of these products so I will leave a link if I have done reviews on them and also leave a link of where you can buy them.


L'Oreal True Match Foundation - Link
Instead of using my trusty Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation throughout this month I decided that I would like to experiment with something a little bit different. I had never really tried a L'Oreal product before and I had heard so many reviews of the L'Oreal True Match, so I decided to give it a whirl and I absolutely love it. When I first started to use it I had quite a few spots and I was worried that it was down to this foundation, thankfully it wasn't so I kept on using it and I'm glad I did. Amazing coverage, blends incredibly well and it comes in a wide variety of shades as well. I've done a full review HERE if you would like to know more. Priced at £9.99 I definitely think it is worth it.


Urban Decay's Naked 3 Palette - Link*
Before I started blogging I was never really an eyeshadow person, however I had heard so many good reviews about the Naked palette range but I was always a bit hesitant about purchasing one due to the price tag. Also I wasn't that keen on the colours in the first two. When the Naked 3 Palette started to appear on the scene before Christmas I knew I had to have it. The colors are so beautiful ranging from shimmery pinks to a warm black and your normal everyday neutrals. The finishes also range from matte to pearl to metallic all look beautiful and are all super easy to work with. I plan on doing a review on this palette as soon as possible so be sure to keep an eye out. At £37 this product really is pricey and not something I thought I'd ever spend on something like an eyeshadow palette but it really is amazing. I have left this product at my Aunt's place which is why it isn't photographed but as soon as I have it back I will add it above. I do apologize! 


Benefit Porefessional Primer - Link
Probably the best product I have tried this month. It is honestly amazing. Before using this I never really found that foundation lasting a long time on me. I found that I had to keep touching up throughout the day but since I've been using this I rarely have to do that. Designed for reducing the appearance of pores, this product really does work. It's also a perfect base for make up as well as being the the perfect product to touch up your make up throughout the day. Yes that's right this product also works on top of make up which is perfect for getting rid of any shine you might get throughout the day. Priced at £24.50 again it's pricey but definitely worth it. Click HERE to check out my full review.


Maybelline's Color 24HR Tattoo in On and On Bronze - Link
I first came across these eyeshadows when I spotted my friend Gabriella (VelvetGh0st on youtube) use them in her videos and I asked her what colors I thought would suit me. She said two, pink gold and on and on bronze. I bought them both and instantly fell in love. They are creamy eyeshadows that can be applied and blended on the lids so easily with just your fingers, no brush is needed. On and On Bronze is a beautiful natural shade that can be worn on its own or mixed with other colors. It's so incredibly pigmented, creamy and doesn't dry out. At £4.99 it's definitely a bargain! I've reviewed 'Pink Gold' HERE.


Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demure - Link
Being a lover of Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, I knew I had to pick up their latest lacquer and matte balms once they were released on the scene and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. Everything from the style of the packaging to the scent and the pigmentation stayed the same. Only difference was the packaging was shiny for the lacquer balms and matte for the matte balms. The scent was still a strong peppermint fragrance. I bought two of the lacquer balms in Demure and Vivacious and I have to say demure would have to be my favourite purely because it is a gorgeous nude shade that can be worn on an everyday basis but also because of the quality. It is just super pigmented, lasts all day and is so incredibly shiny on the lips. I just absolutely love it. I've done a full review on both the lacquer balms that I picked up HERE. Priced at only £7.99 each I think they are completely worth it.


Model Co Lip-Gloss in Strip Tease - Link
I didn't purchase this lip-gloss myself, it actually came as a free gift with a copy of the April Glamour Magazine with Lea Michele on the cover. It came free with another magazine before Christmas so I now have two of these in my collection and I just absolutely love it. It's basically like the revlon colourbust lacquer balms but in lipgloss form. Super shiny, non-sticky and quite sheer so it would be perfect to apply over the top of a nude matte lipstick to add a little bit of shine. It also has a very sweet scent too which is extremely appealing. Priced at £12, as much as I love it I don't think I would ever pay that much for it but it really is an amazing lipgloss and I've worn it consistently throughout this month.


Barry M's Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Sugar Apple & Silk Nail Paint in Heather 
Barry M is right up there as the best drug store nail brand in my opinion. The colors are amazing, the price is amazing, the quality are amazing and in the last couple of months they have released some of what are, in my opinion, their best nail paints ever. Sugar Apple is part of the Gelly Hi Shine collection released for Spring 2014 and I absolutely love it. The name is adorable and the color is a gorgeous aquatic mint green which is just the perfect spring shade. It drys super fast once applied and leaves a gorgeous finish. Heather is probably my favorite color in the Silk collection released by Barry M. It is a beautiful soft lilac shade that leaves a matte but silky pearl finish on the nails. Again this drys super fast. Both polishes last for up to 4 days without chipping which I think is pretty amazing. 

So there we have it. The first installment of my March Favorites. Be sure to check back on my blog tomorrow for Part 2 which will include skincare and other random favorites that I've been loving throughout March. Be sure to comment below and let me know if you have been using and loving any of these items listed above.

What an absolutely gorgeous Saturday it is! I'm currently sitting outside on a swing chair with my laptop writing this post for you all as it's just too nice a day to stay inside. If you have followed my blog for a while now then you will now how much I have been lusting over this moisturizer. I finally managed to get my hands on it around 3 weeks ago and have been using it every day since. I just absolutely love everything about it and find it has made such a difference to my skin! Keep on reading to find out more. 

Origins is a brand that I have wanted to try for literally months. They are such a popular brand among the big bloggers and youtubers and I don't think I've ever seen a bad review on any of their products. I decided to splurge on this gorgeous moisturizer as I'd read so many good things and I knew it would be good for my skin type. When it comes to packaging for moisturizers I really am a sucker for them. Sometimes I can be really lazy with my skin and forget to moisturize quite a lot so I always go for something that's quite bright so that it will always catch my eye and remind me that moisturizing my face is a must, especially as my skin is extremely dry in certain places. I love the fact that it is bright orange and quite small and petite which makes it very travel friendly. 

When it comes to applying this moisturizer the first thing you notice, which is probably the main reason why I was so excited to try this moisturizer is the citrus fragrance. I was drawn to this because I absolutely love the Soap and Glory sugar crush scent so I just knew I had to try this and it is just absolutely incredible. It smells exactly like oranges and really is uplifting and definitely something that will wake you up in the morning. Don't worry the scent disappears on the skin after a while, so you don't go around smelling like a citrus fruit but it really is incredible when you first apply it. 

The formula is also incredible. It is a lightweight texture which I love as I hate moisturizers that feel really thick and heavy on the skin. This is perfect as it's very light but it still gives the right amount of moisture for your skin. It also feel really cooling on the skin which I love, as this basically gets rid of any puffiness that you have around your face and will also wake you up. If you have oily skin then this will also be perfect for you as it is oil-free so won't make any part of your face oily but will still give your face the moisture it needs. I also reckon this is the perfect base for make up due to it's radiance boosting properties and creates such a vibrant and healthy looking glow which let's be honest who doesn't want that? 

I've found that this has made such a difference to my skin. When I have applied it I have noticed a difference straight away. It really does make me look more wide awake in the mornings and instantly makes my skin look incredibly moisturized. The moisturizer basically 'jump-starts hydration levels' according to Origins and I completely agree as my face looks instantly hydrated and moisturized. This is down to the skin-boosters contained within the formula such as Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean. 

Overall I think this moisturizer is incredible and I really don't have anything bad to say about it. I think it will suit almost every skin type, however even though it is hydrating, I don't think it will be that hydrating for those of you with extremely dry skin, so perhaps opting for something that has a little bit more hydration will be the best option for you. If you like the sound of this moisturizer and think it is right up your street then head on over to the the Origins website HERE where you can purchase it for £23. Origins are also doing a special set at the moment called 'Extra-Zing Energizing' set where you get this moisturizer and their Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask which comes in 4 try me pods. This is also available for £23 HERE. If you opt for this option then you will save £6! Amazing! Don't forget you also get 3 free samples with any order which I love as it's basically try before you buy! So what are you waiting for? 

Have you tried this moisturizer or any other Origins skincare products before?

So I thought I'd do a second post for you all today and tell you all about the new shades that Barry M have come out with in regards to their Gelly Hi Shine Range. You all know how much I love Barry M I don't really think I need to tell you more really. Amazing formula, really glossy on the nails, lasts for ages without chipping and there really is no need for a top coat. I mean Barry M really do hit the nail on the head when it comes to their nail polishes. 

When I was in Superdrug last week I only had around £15 in cash on me. I left my card at home (on purpose) so I was kinda restricted but then I spotted these. I think it was The Sunday Girl's (I might be wrong) who's blog I was reading and I saw that she had posted about three new pastel spring shades that would be released in March. My local Superdrug had theirs in stock I think a couple of days before they were supposed to be released so when I saw them I picked up all three without any hesitation. 

The pastel colors are so incredibly beautiful and I love the fact that they are quite milky as well. However, my favorite thing about these polishes definitely have to be the names. Huckleburry, Sugar Apple and Rose Hip. I don't know why but I just think the names are so beautiful. I'm pretty sure Huckleburry should be spelt Huckleberry* but maybe I'm wrong. The name of this polish reminds me of one of my favorite Books. Huckleberry Finn. There's a fun fact about me. 

Huckleburry is a gorgeous milky and very light blue shade. I find that two thin coats of this nail polish applied to the nails works well. I have gone with three coats in the past just to be on the safe side and to make it more opaque but if you're not as fussy as me you'll definitely get away with only two coats. Rose Hip is a gorgeous pale candy floss/strawberry milkshake like color. It's absolutely gorgeous and one very thick coat or two thin coats applied to the nails leave a gorgeous finish. Lastly, and my favorite of them all is Sugar Apple, a gorgeous pastel turquoise mint color. I love everything about this color. I don't know why but Spring for me equals mint colors. The name is so pretty too. Two too three thin coats of this polish work best if you want the polish to be totally opaque. 

Overall these are definitely my go to nail polishes at the moment. They look so bright and gorgeous on the nails and the colors go with everything. Like the other gelly hi shine polishes, they don't chip easily and are super glossy on the nails. These gorgeous polishes can be purchased from the Barry M website and at Boots for £3.99. 

Have you given these a whirl yet?

New Spring Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paints


So I thought I'd do a second post for you all today and tell you all about the new shades that Barry M have come out with in regards to their Gelly Hi Shine Range. You all know how much I love Barry M I don't really think I need to tell you more really. Amazing formula, really glossy on the nails, lasts for ages without chipping and there really is no need for a top coat. I mean Barry M really do hit the nail on the head when it comes to their nail polishes. 

When I was in Superdrug last week I only had around £15 in cash on me. I left my card at home (on purpose) so I was kinda restricted but then I spotted these. I think it was The Sunday Girl's (I might be wrong) who's blog I was reading and I saw that she had posted about three new pastel spring shades that would be released in March. My local Superdrug had theirs in stock I think a couple of days before they were supposed to be released so when I saw them I picked up all three without any hesitation. 

The pastel colors are so incredibly beautiful and I love the fact that they are quite milky as well. However, my favorite thing about these polishes definitely have to be the names.

Heya everyone! So today I thought that I would talk about literally the first ever high end product I've bought. If you've read my blog from the beginning then you all know how much I love the drugstore. I just absolutely love the huge selection of products they have and they are all extremely purse friendly. Because of this I never really branched out to the high end side of things. I just wasn't interested as well as the fact I never really had enough money to afford these items. Over Christmas however I did a really exhausting job that paid well so I was able to finally treat myself to a few higher end purchases I had been eyeing up. 

The Benefit Porefessional Primer is something that had been on my wishlist for a very, very long time. It's a product that has been so incredibly hyped up by the blogosphere lately that I just knew I had to have it in my collection. I had never tried a primer before and this was definitely considered the Queen of all primers so I decided to purchase it. When I finally got my hands on it and tried it I was super impressed and it definitely exceeded all my expectations. 

Porefessional's main aim as the name suggests is to reduce the appearance of those pesky pores and give you soft and smoother skin. I've never had really any problems with my pores being extremely visible apart from around my nose and chin area. I mainly use this product on my t-zone as it works wonders there. Don't think this gets rid of the pores though. It doesn't, it just reduces the appearance so they are less visible but works like an absolute dream. It also provides a perfect base for make up. 

The main product itself is amazing. It's quite a lightweight product that applies to the skin like an absolute dream. The texture is incredibly soft and very silky which goes on to the skin incredibly smoothly. Even though the primer is a light brown color it's actually translucent when applied to the skin meaning that everyone, no matter your skin tone can use this primer. As well as skin tones, every single skin type can use this primer. The primer contains Vitamin E in it which is an ingredient that works wonders for those of us with dry skin, however the primer is also oil free so if you have oily skin then this is also a product that you will also enjoy to use. I find that the primer will mattify the skin, reduce shine and any redness as well as really smooth out the complexion so I'd say it really is an amazing multi use product. 

Overall I absolutely love this product. I've used the Maybelline Instant 'Baby Skin' Pore Eraser which I reviewed HERE and if I had to take my pick of the two I would definitely pick the Benefit Porefessional. I just prefer the texture and find that it does a much better job at combating pores than the Maybelline one. Hey, Porefessional isn't called the UK's Number One Best Selling Primer and winner of a number of other awards for nothing right? These can be purchased from a number of retailers including Boots and Debenhams for £24.50. Bit pricey but I'd definitely say it's worth it. 

Have you tried Benefit's Porefessional yet? Do you think it deserves to be a number one best seller?

Hello all you gorgeous people! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Today I thought that I would tell you about one of my favorite lip products at the moment which is the stunning collection privee lipstick by L'Oreal in the shade Eva's Nude inspired by the gorgeous Eva Longoria. Forgive the photos above I didn't take photos after I had used it, I just mistakenly bought a lipstick that someone had already opened and broke by putting the lid on top before putting it down. Silly me! 

First of all let's talk about the packaging. As a beauty blogger the most important thing is for the packaging to be spot on and I just think this packaging is super sleek and classy. I love the gold detailing on it and the gold writing on the packaging. It's definitely something that makes the product look more like a high end product than a lower end product as it's more luxurious. I also love that the celebrity's signature is printed on the packaging as well.

I also really love the formula of these lipsticks. It's very wearable because of how sheer and glossy they appear on the lips. The color of the lipstick is also super beautiful. It's a gorgeous slightly darker than brick red color. I'm not good with color descriptions okay? It's not overly pigmented so perfect if you just want a good wearable everyday color without being too over the top. The one downside to the formula is that it's not that long lasting. I'd say 3-4 hours tops. However, the lipsticks are incredibly easy to re-apply throughout the day.

It's also not that drying on the lips, however there is a downfall. I find that the lipsticks can cling to dry patches. I find the best way to avoid this is by really moisturizing your lips before hand. In the morning when I do my skincare I just really moisturize my lips with a moisturizing lip-balm and then apply this lipstick straight away. Problem solved.

Overall, I really absolutely love this lipstick. I think it is a perfect every day shade, will suit absolutely all skin tones. I have finally found a staple nude lipstick for me that I know I will keep on repurchasing and wearing. If you are interested in this lipstick then you will be able to purchase it at Boots HERE for £8.19. The lipstick comes in five other shades inspired by Cheryl (J-LO in USA), Julianne Moore, Frieda Pinto, Doutzen Kroes and Liya and all range from peachy pinks to more brown toned colours. There's bound to be something for everyone.

Heya everyone! Sorry I haven't blogged in a few days! I have been pretty busy with trying to sort out everything for my new job! Only 23 days until I leave the UK and head off to Majorca then Turkey for six months! So scary! But now I am back and free so let's get onto the post. 

Today I thought I would tell you about a new foundation I bought that I've really been loving! You all know how much I love my healthy mix serum from Bourjois but I thought it was about time to step out from my comfort zone and experiment with something a little bit different. 

I had heard so many good things about L'Oreal True Match so I decided to purchase it and so far I absolutely love it. I did however find it a bit difficult to match  myself to the right colour so I asked for assistance and a lovely girl in my local  Superdrug matched me to the shade N4 - Beige which is actually the perfect shade for my skin tone. I thought it might be a little bit to dark but it's actually perfect. Definitely something I would recommend all of you do if you are interested in this foundation. 

The foundation itself has quite a runny consistency and I personally find that a little definitely goes a long way. I thought this would be quite a high coverage foundation, but I would definitely say it is medium coverage but can definitely be built up to high coverage depending on the look you want to achieve. It blends like an absolute dream but I would definitely recommend using a brush. I know some people like using their fingers but because the consistency is pretty runny this wouldn't really work and you'd end up with more on your fingers than your actual face. Trust me. I speak from experience! I use the real techniques buffing brush, which is my favourite make up brush ever and it just leaves an absolutely flawless finish on the face.

The one thing I don't love, but don't hate either is the fact that the finish is quite matte. I normally like a dewy finish but I still absolutely love it. I also don't really need a lot of powder. I tend to mainly go over my t-zone and just leave the rest of my face. This foundation also doesn't contain an SPF so I wouldn't really recommend it for daytime wear but it would be perfect for nighttime wear as there won't be any flashback if you're like me and tend to get a bit snap happy on your nights out! I wouldn't recommend this however for those of you who have dry skin. I have found that this can sometimes accentuate this which isn't really something I would like. If you have oily or normal to combination skin then this would be perfect for you. 

Overall this is a pretty amazing foundation. It lasts all day on my skin, comes in a wide variety of colours, looks really natural on the skin and I just think the quality is pretty amazing for a drugstore foundation. You can purchase this at Boots and Superdrug for £9.99.

Review | L'Oreal True Match Foundation

Ahh Monday. The one day of the week that everyone dreads. But alas it is almost over! Hope you have had a good start to the week and also Happy St Patricks Day to any of my irish readers! Hope you have had a good day and celebrated in style over the weekend, or if you are going to celebrate tonight I hope you have a lovely night! 

If you follow me on instagram or have read my recent haul posts then you will know I have been on a recently beauty rampage lately. I've bought so much beauty stuff it's ridiculous. However one of my absolute favourite buys has been this absolutely gorgeous Rose Gold blush from Sleek. Sleek have to be one of my favorite drugstore brands. I absolutely love their huge range of eyeshadow palettes, pout polishes but I had never tried one of their blushes before. I have never been one to wear blusher. I don't know why it's just not really a make up item I tend to pick up a lot and I've always struggled to find a colour that looks fairly decent with my skin tone. However when I saw this gorgeous blush I knew I had to have it.

First of all I absolutely love the matte black packaging that holds the blush. I think it's quite stylish and definitely lives up to the brand's name. It also holds a mirror inside the packaging making the blush perfect for taking with you on the go. It's very handbag friendly as it's really small and compact. Definitely something that will be staying in my mini make up bag when I am out and about.

The blush itself is quite a peachy pink toned blush with hints of gold shimmer running through it. I've read on quite a few blogs that it is a dupe for Nars Orgasm however one of my friends has Nars Orgasm and when I was comparing the two I would have to disagree just slightly. I think that the Nars Orgasm is just a little bit more pink toned than peach and has a lot less gold shimmer running through it. However once blended out on the skin they are very similar.

Because of the shimmer particles contained within the blusher you can definitely notice it when it has been applied so it's definitely not a blush for those of you who don't like wearing shimmery blushes. I was a bit uncertain about it myself when I first applied it but when you are in the light it just catches it perfectly and really makes your skin look more luminous which I find to be incredibly flattering.

Another aspect of this blush I absolutely love is how pigmented it is. I use a brush to apply the blush and I find a little definitely goes a long way, however there is the option to build it up if you would like, but I would be extremely careful as you obviously don't want to resemble a clown. It's also extremely long lasting. I would say a good 6-7 hours and even then the blush doesn't need to be reapplied. Just a light touch up and you're good to go.

Overall I absolutely love this blush. I think it's a perfect colour for not just the spring/summer season but all year round. It's also a colour I reckon will suit absolutely every skin tone. Sleek's Rose Gold blush is available for only £4.49 at Superdrug and there are also 9 other colours to choose from ranging from matte finishes to more shimmery finishes like this Rose Gold blush.

Have you tried Rose Gold or any other Sleek blushes? What are your favourite brands for blushes?

Heya everyone! Today I thought that I would do a bit of a different post for you all. I don't really tend to tell you guys what I've been up too or what my plans are for my life basically so I thought that I am going to start doing that on a more regular basis as I think it is important for you guys to know that I am not just a machine plugging out beauty review after beauty review. If you follow me on twitter then you might already know this but for those of you who don't know I have finally landed myself a job. I am going to be working in Turkey over the course of six months as a children's rep which is extremely exciting and an amazing first job as I get to travel and work lots. If you read my bucket list post that I wrote before the new year then you will know I had couple of goals to land myself a job and to travel more. I'm basically killing two birds with one stone here! 


Before I start the job I will be heading off to Majorca for 10 days intensive training. I went to Majorca/Magaluf around 5 years ago when I was still at college and I absolutely loved it. It was so beautiful and sunny so I'm extremely excited to be heading back there for 10 days. I am extremely excited but nervous at the same time. I'll be learning about airport duties, how to create different activities for children which I have experience in already so shouldn't be too difficult and also be learning a number of different dances in order to entertain the children and family. I'm not a dancer in anyway but this should be pretty exciting. So at the moment that is the plan for Majorca. I'll be heading there on the 15th of April and staying until the 25th April. 


Once the 10 days intensive training is done I will be heading over to Turkey! I've never been to Turkey before so I have absolutely no idea what to expect but having looked at the pictures online its absolutely beautfiful. I have read it's a little bit rough and my parents aren't really comfortable with me going here, but I've spoken to a few other reps going who have been before and they've said where the resorts are it's perfectly safe so that put my mind a little bit at ease. Parents are always worriers so I doubt anything I say will put their mind at ease but they know it's important for me to travel and work so they are supporting me. I don't actually find out where I am going to be going in Turkey until end of training which is pretty frustrating but I'm just happy to be going somewhere that isn't in the UK or France! I'm due to be staying in Turkey for between four to six months. This means that I will be spending my birthday there which I am extremely excited about. I'm going to be turning 23 in Turkey. This will definitely be one to remember. I'm just excited to be heading there, working with children giving them a summer of a lifetime as well as myself having the summer of a lifetime.

MAIN REASON FOR THIS POST 
Even though I want to introduce more lifestyle posts to all of you who read my blog so you get to know the things I have and will be up too, the main reason for this particular post is because I fear that it will affect my blogging and not in a good way. My aim will be to post at least 5 posts per month but I fear this won't happen because I still have to fix my laptop and get internet and right now I have no idea how long this will take. I have literally less than a month until I head off on my new adventures. 

I absolutely love blogging. This past year it has become a massive part of my life and I have been extremely happy. I have met some absolutely lovely girls and have become a part of such a supportive community. If I manage to get my laptop fixed in the next month then I will be churning out a few posts here and there. They will however mainly be lifestyle. I'm going to purchase a few beauty products before hand that I can test and try when I am over there but there won't be many beauty posts on my blog until around October/November time. 

It does upset me a little bit that I probably won't be blogging but my future really does come first and if you have been following me since the beginning you will know how important it was for me to get a job. It has affected my life massively. I have suffered with depression and I am constantly sad because I can't afford to do anything. My relationship with my Mum has suffered massively as I'm constantly around and we are always arguing which isn't good at all. It has just genuinely affected my happiness. I have become really antisocial, I never really see my friends anymore as I can't afford to do anything they do. It's just awful not having a job. I kid you not, when I got the call offering me the job I literally broke down in tears, it meant that much to me. 

I'll end this post here with a massive thank you to all the support you have given me this past year. I never expected to have nearly 300 followers and almost 40,000 views on my blog in a short period of time. I know it's not a lot to some people but its an awful lot to me and I'm so glad that you trust my opinion and like hearing what I have to say. Your tweets and comments make me smile loads. Don't worry I still have a full month of posts lined up so I won't be disappearing just yet. Make sure to follow me on twitter and instagram both of which are @xbellefleurx to be the first to know when I publish a new post and also to keep up to date with my life and what I'm up too. My next post will be back to normal and be a beauty related one, I will post it on Tuesday so I hope you enjoy it!

Heya everyone! Today I thought that I would do a bit of a different post for you all. I don't really tend to tell you guys what I've been up too or what my plans are for my life basically so I thought that I am going to start doing that on a more regular basis as I think it is important for you guys to know that I am not just a machine plugging out beauty review after beauty review. If you follow me on twitter then you might already know this but for those of you who don't know I have finally landed myself a job. I am going to be working in Turkey over the course of six months as a children's rep which is extremely exciting and an amazing first job as I get to travel and work lots. If you read my bucket list post that I wrote before the new year then you will know I had couple of goals to land myself a job and to travel more. I'm basically killing two birds with one stone here! 


Before I start the job I will be heading off to Majorca for 10 days intensive training. I went to Majorca/Magaluf around 5 years ago when I was still at college and I absolutely loved it. It was so beautiful and sunny so I'm extremely excited to be heading back there for 10 days. I am extremely excited but nervous at the same time. I'll be learning about airport duties, how to create different activities for children which I have experience in already so shouldn't be too difficult and also be learning a number of different dances in order to entertain the children and family. I'm not a dancer in anyway but this should be pretty exciting. So at the moment that is the plan for Majorca. I'll be heading there on the 15th of April and staying until the 25th April. 


Once the 10 days intensive training is done I will be heading over to Turkey! I've never been to Turkey before so I have absolutely no idea what to expect but having looked at the pictures online its absolutely beautfiful. I have read it's a little bit rough and my parents aren't really comfortable with me going here, but I've spoken to a few other reps going who have been before and they've said where the resorts are it's perfectly safe so that put my mind a little bit at ease. Parents are always worriers so I doubt anything I say will put their mind at ease but they know it's important for me to travel and work so they are supporting me. I don't actually find out where I am going to be going in Turkey until end of training which is pretty frustrating but I'm just happy to be going somewhere that isn't in the UK or France! I'm due to be staying in Turkey for between four to six months. This means that I will be spending my birthday there which I am extremely excited about. I'm going to be turning 23 in Turkey. This will definitely be one to remember. I'm just excited to be heading there, working with children giving them a summer of a lifetime as well as myself having the summer of a lifetime.

MAIN REASON FOR THIS POST 
Even though I want to introduce more lifestyle posts to all of you who read my blog so you get to know the things I have and will be up too, the main reason for this particular post is because I fear that it will affect my blogging and not in a good way. My aim will be to post at least 5 posts per month but I fear this won't happen because I still have to fix my laptop and get internet and right now I have no idea how long this will take. I have literally less than a month until I head off on my new adventures. 

I absolutely love blogging. This past year it has become a massive part of my life and I have been extremely happy. I have met some absolutely lovely girls and have become a part of such a supportive community. If I manage to get my laptop fixed in the next month then I will be churning out a few posts here and there. They will however mainly be lifestyle. I'm going to purchase a few beauty products before hand that I can test and try when I am over there but there won't be many beauty posts on my blog until around October/November time. 

It does upset me a little bit that I probably won't be blogging but my future really does come first and if you have been following me since the beginning you will know how important it was for me to get a job. It has affected my life massively. I have suffered with depression and I am constantly sad because I can't afford to do anything. My relationship with my Mum has suffered massively as I'm constantly around and we are always arguing which isn't good at all. It has just genuinely affected my happiness. I have become really antisocial, I never really see my friends anymore as I can't afford to do anything they do. It's just awful not having a job. I kid you not, when I got the call offering me the job I literally broke down in tears, it meant that much to me. 

I'll end this post here with a massive thank you to all the support you have given me this past year. I never expected to have nearly 300 followers and almost 40,000 views on my blog in a short period of time. I know it's not a lot to some people but its an awful lot to me and I'm so glad that you trust my opinion and like hearing what I have to say. Your tweets and comments make me smile loads. Don't worry I still have a full month of posts lined up so I won't be disappearing just yet. Make sure to follow me on twitter and instagram both of which are @xbellefleurx to be the first to know when I publish a new post and also to keep up to date with my life and what I'm up too. My next post will be back to normal and be a beauty related one, I will post it on Tuesday so I hope you enjoy it! 

Hugs and Kisses
