Real Techniques Makeup Brush Collection




Real Techniques have to be my favourite brand of makeup brushes. From the attractive designs in golds, pinks and purples to the versatility of each brush and the affordable prices, what's not to love?! After recently receiving a couple more Real Techniques brushes for Christmas, I thought I'd share with you my updated Real Techniques collection.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

After suffering from far too many bad skin days recently and wanting a product that would instantly hide all my imperfections,  I went on a (very) serious foundation shopping spree. I have high expectations when it comes to foundations especially for high end brands, they have to be worth the omg have I just spent £30 on a foundation when there's foundations for a fiver feeling. So after reaching for my laptop and doing a foundation investigation, I decided I wanted to try Estee Lauder's Double Wear. After getting matched up at one of their counters, I asked for a few samples so I could try it out for myself, something I would definitely recommend doing. They give you a generous amount that must have lasted me more than 10 applications. It also lets you see how long it wears on your skin, how well the colour suits you in different lights and well, whether it's worth the big splurge.

So, did it impress me? Well, I bought the full bottle...

Golds & Nudes - October Favourites

Happy Halloween! I love this time of year. Bonfire night, the start of the Christmas markets, crisp dark nights where it feels more than acceptable to put your pyjamas on as soon as you walk in the door and when cuddling up by the fire on an evening accompanied by a box of chocolates becomes the norm. As you can see, this monthly favourites has a little bit of a theme to it as I currently seem to be obsessing over nude and gold shades when it comes to makeup...

MAC Treats

Life has been pretty crazy recently which sadly meant little time to blog. However, I'm going to sort my life out (hopefully!) and start getting my blogging act together once again. I was lucky enough to do a placement at Grazia magazine on the beauty desk recently, it was such an experience but also made me discover a ridiculous amount of beauty products I now want which my bank balance is definitely not going to thank me for! Recently though, a couple of new MAC products have entered my life and well, it felt rude not to share their wonderfulness with you.

My 22nd Birthday: Beauty Presents and First Impressions



I was always told that once you reach a certain age you start dreading your next birthday and I have to say I really was dreading turning 22. Luckily for me, I got to celebrate the day in the beautiful hot sunshine in Southern Italy (travel post coming soon!) which I guess made turning old feel slightly more bearable! I received quite a few beauty products for my birthday but there were three that I'd specifically asked for that I had extremely high hopes for and so I thought I'd share my first impressions with you...

Greece: Holiday Outfits


If I know I'm going to be spending the day sightseeing I love to wear dresses. I always find that walking around for hours in the boiling hot sunshine can be so uncomfortable and dresses are so much cooler to wear. I was instantly drawn to this dress from H and M because of the bright coral colour which is so perfect for summer. I also loved the fact it had a bandeau style top which means no annoying strap marks!

A Trip to Greece: Corfu, Paxos and Antipaxos


Well there's nothing like writing a holiday post whilst it's dull and gloomy outside to make you feel completely and utterly depressed! So if you're reading this wishing you were lying on a beach, don't worry because I'm currently feeling exactly the same. If only English weather could stay dry and warm for well forever. I recently went on holiday to Greece which involved lots of sightseeing, sunbathing, wine and our fair share of feta cheese and Greek salads...
