Best Beauty Buys of 2015

With the year coming to an end I thought I’d do a round up of some of my favourite beauty buys of 2015. I still can’t believe it’s going to be 2016 in a few days, it’s crazy. I vaguely remember stood on the drive outside with everyone in the street celebrating the Millennium and the fact that’s nearly 16 years ago is so scary! This year I’ve tried out so many new makeup bits, some new releases and some old and they’ve since become staples in my makeup bag.

NYE Outfit Inspiration

Hope you’ve all had an amazing Christmas! I can’t believe it’s all over! It seemed to come round so quick this year and go by just as quick. With Christmas over though, it’s onto the next big event…New Years Eve. This is the first NYE I’m not spending in Leeds and the first I’m spending with my boyfriend so I’m so excited! I always find NYE a bit of a let down so I’m hoping this year will be better. If you’re anything like me then with less than a

 Italian is my favourite food ever so when I heard that an Italian takeaway had opened in Leeds, I couldn’t wait to try it out! Although Leeds is full of Italian restaurants, until now, I’ve never really known where to go to get a good Italian takeaway and so I always end up opting for a guilt-ridden Chinese or Dominos whose pizzas don’t even come close to Italian ones. Italian takeaway and espresso bar That’s Amore recently opened in Meanwood in Leeds and we were invited down last weekend to

Can we all just take a second to appreciate just how gorgeous this palette is?! Eeek. I’ve been obsessed with the Illamasqua Celestial Palette ever since I received it. So much so that I’ve been finding any excuse to wear it. I mean, it’s totally acceptable to have smokey and sparkling eyelids for work at 8am in the morning right? Joking. I haven’t worn it quite that much but I do love it. I’ve currently got a thing for eyeshadow palettes. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved a good

I’d never been to the Lake District before so when I was invited to stay at the beautiful Aphrodite’s Spa Hotel in Lake Windermere I literally jumped at the chance. It feels like a long time ago since I travelled anywhere and although it’s only in the UK, I’ve always fancied visiting the Lakes. Plus, I’d been dying for a relaxing weekend away! The Aphrodite’s Spa Hotel is definitely one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in, it was so luxurious and I’d 100% recommend it for a weekend

With Christmas fast approaching I thought I’d put together a little Christmas gift guide/wish list for all those people who either have no idea what to get the ladies in their lives or are stuck for ideas for themselves. I love this time of year and I find Christmas shopping so exciting despite the fact I always leave it until the last minute every single year and end up in a panicky mess but I guess that’s all part of the fun! Whilst I was feeling a little festive, I gathered

I’ve been a huge fan of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation for years now. It’s one of those products that I must have repurchased countless times and despite often trying out new foundations, I always have a bottle of Bourjois Healthy Mix in my makeup drawer as a foundation I know I can rely on. In my opinion, it’s comparable to many high-end foundations in terms of lasting power and providing a gorgeous finish and of course, the price is undeniably better which also helps a lot. It’s only recently
