Amsterdam 2019

I have recently been to Amsterdam again and I absolutely loved it. I have been to Amsterdam last year for my birthday and I wanted to go again for my mates birthday. I thought since I have been to Amsterdam before I wouldn’t do a detailed explanation of everything I got up too like last time. I will just show you some pictures I took of my trip away. We decided to go for a long weekend again. We flew out on Friday 1st March early lunchtime and flew back in the evening of Monday 4th March. I would highly recommend Amsterdam if you haven’t been before it is such a beautiful country. I hope you enjoy having a look through my pictures of what I got up too in Amsterdam…

Youtube Made Me Buy It ’19

I have seen this going around social media for a while and I thought it is time I did it. There is quite a few items in my make up collection which I have bought because I have seen people on social media rave about it and wanted to know if it was worth the hype. I hope you enjoy reading what youtube made me buy.

February Favourite’s 2019

It’s that time of month again. Time for another monthly favourite’s and this time I’ll be sharing with you what I’ve been loving throughout February. There isn’t any make up items this month just mainly skincare products. I hope you enjoy reading!

IMG_4067

Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution:                                                                                                              When I went into my local Body Shop store to repurchase my much loved bronzer I had a little look around. I wanted something for my skin as I have recently had quite a few breakouts. I love tea tree oil so I was instantly drawn to this range. As soon as I started using this product I fell in love with it. It has helped my skin massively. I don’t find I get as many breakouts and helps with scaring. I will use this after I’ve washed my face. I will apply a few drops onto my hand, rub it around my hands than gently pat onto my face. Then I will continue to moisturise my face as normal. 

Body Shop Tea Tree 3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask:                                                                                                              This is another product I bought while I was in the Body Shop at the start of the month. This combo is brilliant for my skin. The face wash, scrub and mask works fantastic with my skin and is gentle enough but still cleans and refreshes my skin really well. It doesn’t foam up which I really like about it. I’ve used it as a face wash, a scrub and a mask and I love using it every way just depending on what I’m feeling on the day. As a pair I have found this to really clear up my skin and I will 100% be repurchasing both products and trying out more of the Tea Tree range.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream:                                                                                                              As we are in Winter my lips have been very dry last month therefore, I have been using more lip balm. I have loved and used this product for a long time now. I many use it for the purpose of a lip balm as I find it works wonders on my lips. Recently I have been using it more vinously though, Every night I will apply this to my lips and they feel lovely and moisturised the next morning when I wake up. If I want a bit of a stronger lip balm during the day as well I will use this. I found this product has definitely helped my lips the past month and would 100% recommend you to try it out.

Goldsmith 9ct Diamond Heart Necklace:                                                                                                              As Valentine’s day has just been I was lucky enough to receive a gift from a loved one. I received a 9ct diamond heart necklace and I absolutely love it. It’s very delicate so I don’t tend to wear it everyday (when I’m at work). However I absolutely love it and feel so special to have it. I’ve also been wearing it every chance I can, hence why I’m mentioning it in my February favourite’s. 

Pretty Little Thing Denim Jacket:                                                                                                              As the sun is making more of an appearance as the month has gone on I’ve had a clear out of my wardrobe. Putting away my winter clothes and bring out my summer clothes. One item I’ve bought out is my denim jacket and even though its still not that warm I have been loving it. I can already tell its going to be a must have in the summer. 

Jonny English Strikes Again:                                                                                                              I have watched the first two Jonny English movies and I loved them so I was very excited to watch the third one when it came out. I won’t ruin the film incase you haven’t watched it. But I loved it, I found it so funny and had me in stitches in parts of the film. I will say it’s not as good as the first one (however the first film is a classic in my eyes) but I still loved it none the less. Definitely give it a watch if you have already seen the first two films. 

Winter Morning Routine

As I have recently done a ‘Winter Night-Time Routine’ I thought it was only right to do a morning routine as well. In winter I never want to leave my bed so I will stay in bed for as long as I can. Therefore you will find out I do multiple things at the same time in the morning haha. None the less I hope you enjoy reading my morning routine in winter.

As soon as my alarm goes off in the morning I automatically put it on snooze. I will then have another 15 minutes in bed before I finally decide to get up. Once I’m up the first thing I do is head to the bathroom to wash my face and brush my teeth. This is the point in the morning when I will make my breakfast. Normally I want something quick and easy so ill either have cereal or toast. To save time in a morning I will take my breakfast to my room and eat it while I’m doing my make up. I don’t take too long to do my make up, whenever I do my everyday make up it will normally take me out 15 minutes. I will then do my hair, normally I’m going to work so I’ll either put it up in a ponytail or a bun, whichever I feel like on the day. Afterwards I will put my jewellery on, day-to-day I wear my earrings, a necklace, a ring and my apple watch. Finally I will get changed and put some perfume on. I am currently loving my Jimmy Choo perfume. I will then put my shoes on and get my bag together before heading out the door for the day ahead.

HUDA Beauty Lip Contour:                                                                                                          We have received products from this brand before and I have heard a lot of this brand. So far I love what I have tried out from this brand. The shade I received inside my Glossybox is ‘Flirt’. It’s a gorgeous muted brown shade, perfect for a nude lip. It does feel very creamy as well which I like. The information card that comes inside the box says ‘Waterproof and transfer-free, it glides on effortlessly to give your pout an intense shot of colour. Use it to both contour and colour your lips, or pair it with HUDA Beauty’s Liquid Matte Lipstick for a beautiful Matte Finish’. This is a full size product and retails for £16

Nails Inc. ‘Status Ready’ Nail Varnish:                                                                                             I have heard of this brand before but never tried it out for myself. I have only heard good things from this brand though. The information card says ‘Long-lasting and super glossy, this sultry nail polish is a fabulously intense, deep cherry red hue. Better yet, it boasts an expertly designed brush that perfectly fits the shape and width of your nail. Giving yourself an immaculate manicure has never been easier!’ This is a full size product and retails for £15

Luxie Beauty Onyx Noir Small Contouring Face Brush 512:                                                       I love trying out new brushes and I have never heard of this brand before so Im eager to try it out and see how well it works. The information card says ‘Use this contour brush to define your best facial features and make yourself feel confident. It’s ultra-soft, handcrafted bristles allow you to effortlessly accentuate your cheekbones and achieve an even and blended contour.’ This is a full size product and retails for £15

Regenerate Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste:                                                                 We don’t normally receive toothpaste in our Glossybox so this is a nice little treat and something different to what I normally receive. I have never heard of this brand either. The information card says ‘There’s nothing more charming than a nice smile. Give your teeth a spruce with this regenerating, strengthening and enamel mineral restoring toothpaste. Boasting unique NR-5 ingredients, it reverses the early enamel erosion process, while also giving you early-white teeth and fresh, minty breath’. This is a deluxe mini size (14ml) which is worth £2.50, and the full size (75ml) retails for £10

Vitamasques Multivitamin Mask:                                                                                                     I have heard and used this brand before and the products I have tried I really like. I especially like sheet masks as well so I was excited and eager to try it out when I saw it inside the box. The information card says ‘Achieve a breathtaking complexion with this pampering Korean face mask. Formulated with nourishing vitamins, it moisturises and hydrates dry skin for a healthy glow’. That description sounds perfect for my skin. This is a full size product and retails for £4.99

Mugler ALIEN Fusion Perfume and ALIEN Man Fusion:                                                        This is the extra treat that we received inside this month’s Glossybox. I haven’t tried out this perfume before but it does smell really good. The information card says ‘We’re treating you to the new Alien Fusion fragrance by Mugler – one for you and one for your special someone. For her Alien Fusion Eau de Perfume: a hot and spicy scent with an intense, fiery trail. For him Alien Fusion Eau de Toilette: a leathery, vibrant and addictive fragrance that will awaken his senses.’ The retail prices for the full size products are; Alien Fusion EDP (30ml) £49 and Alien Man Fusion EDT (50ml) £47

January Favourite’s 2019

It’s the start of a new month again and time for another monthly favourites video. I do have quite a few beauty favourites and netflix favourites this month. I hope you enjoy looking at my January favourite’s.

img_3980img_3981

Mac Blush in ‘Orgasm’:                                                                                                                  This blush is such a know blush in the beauty industry. And of course I wanted to see what the hype was about. it is such a perfect shade for day-to-day. It’s a muted pink but still adds a gorgeous flush to your cheeks. It’s not too powdery either which I prefer.

Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter:                                                                                                                 I have recently bought this highlighter and I fell in love with it straight away. It leaves such a beautiful wet shine on your cheek bones which I find looks very natural. It can be quite powdery but I don’t mind that, it doesn’t really bother me. I would definitely recommend this highlighter though.

Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil:                                                                                                                 I have fallen in love with this eyebrow pencil. It has a great creamy formula to it but still lasts all day. Normally I will buy the smaller pencil without the brush as its cheaper and I can use any brush for that. I would definitely recommend this eyebrow pencil.

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in ‘Child Star’:                                                                                                                 I love trying out new lip products. I have never tried this liquid lipstick before, but I have fallen in love with it. The formula is perfect, it’s not  drying but still lasts all day. I am very eager to try out more colours in this range.

Naked Heat Palette:                                                                                                                 Again this is another product that I have recently bought and again I am in love with it. The colour range is amazing, I love warm orange/brown colours on my eyes. Especially as the bring out the blue in my eyes. The shades blend like a dream and I can easily use every shade in the palette. This is definitely my favourite Naked palette out of all of them.

Netflix:                                                                                                                                             In January I had a week off work as I had no time off over Christmas. Within my week I purposely didn’t book lots of things so I could just chill and relax for a week. Therefore, I found myself watching a lot of Netflix. The series I have been watching and loving recently are; season 4 of Peaky Blinder, You, Sex Education and Power. All of these series I loved and would definitely recommend.
