My bath time routine!

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, i decided to do a more laid back post on just my everyday bath time routine, with a run through of each product i use, so here goes nothing.


 Firstly i run my hot, soapy bath with plenty of bubbles, and hop in! i then usually let myself get used to the hot eater ( i always run my baths to hot!)

I then wash my face to remove any makeup using my peaches and clean cleanser i tend to swap between cleansers alot, but this is one of my favorites because it gets the bulk of my makeup off in one go, i then wash the rest of my makeup off with my effaclar foam face wash just to draw out impurities, this really does work wonders on my skin! Finally i use my St Ives scrub on dry flaky skin on my face just to remove it. 
i  then have a happy, healthy, clean face.
Cleaning my body is always the next thing i do, i use my N spa raspberry shower and bath gel and wash away!  after i've done that i scrub away when i need to with my soap and glory sugar crush body scrub.
 I must add both products smell AMAZING.


 For hair care products i have been loving everything pure that will reduce damaging my hair by washing it too much, so i used the Timotei 'pure' shampoo, which doesn't smell to amazing, it just has a kinda fresh, clean no smell  type of smell (I'm awful at describing) but based on first impressions i really like it, it lathers up really well and my hair feels squeaky clean after use. My conditioner is amazing all aside from the fact if you put to much on it really does make your hair look greasy which so do all conditioners, this conditioner literally melts into your hair and makes it feel super soft which is why i love it.

 Whats your favorite hair product?

Zuri face mask review!

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere! You may have already saw this product featured in my fragrance direct haul, since I've used it a handful of times i decided to give it a full review.
Zuri Brightening skin
 renew mask.

What is the brand 'Zuri.'
 I didn't know about this brand until i spotted it on fragrance direct, and me being a magpie to skin products i decided to order it, when i researched into it i found it was a brand that is part of sleek makeup knowing this and only this  i didn't really have big aspirations for this product because  of the limited information i could find out.

Zuri claims.
' A multi-purpose product that purifies and mattifies the skin by absorbing sebum as well as skins impurity's. The alga light, an algae extract, is a skin brightening agent derived from red algae. It controls UV induced darkening by suppressing factors that allow processes to occur. The mask also possesses microbial properties, and is also highly moisturizing.'

How i found it.
The Zuri face mask has become one of my main ingredients to healthy skin, when i first tried this product i didn't see an improvement in my skin at all besides a boost of moisture but after a few uses of this product i completely fell in love with it. I find it does pretty much excautly as it says on the box; However i do not think it prevents brake outs, but i do think that it reduces redness and helps get rid of existing spots. 
This face mask defiantly brightens, mattifies and hydrates the skin. I would defiantly buy it again as it's a beauty bargain must have for your skin!

You can find this at Fragrance Direct for 2.99

Have you tried anything new lately?

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, I've saw this wishlist floating about and decided i'd do one (such a sheep i know, but sometimes it's ok to be a copy cat!)




1. YLS Rouge volupte lipstick- 'Rose Paris.'
I just love love love the packaging of the YLS lipsticks, I've heard amazing things and the colour is just perfect.

2. Nars Sheer glow 'Siberia.'

I'm in need of a new laptop, and i love apple products so this is definitely on my need list, Pitty their so pricey!

4. Michael Kors Mid-Size Rose Golden Stainless Steel Parker Chronograph Glitz Watch.
This watch is stunning, dainty and is rose gold what more could i want!

I've loved this blusher since i saw it mentioned in my favorite blogger/youtubers makeup collection, i think it's a gorgeous colour and from what i've heard and seen looks amazing on the cheeks!

 So that's it for my 'If i was rich post' obviously if i was rich i'd be buying alot more stuff but they are my main things i'd buy to start off.

Blusher love!

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere! the weather is dull and so was my face until these little beauties landed in my life!


1. ' You are my sunshine.' 
This is a gorgeous dark pink/ dusky rose powder blush with a golden shimmer through out the blush, it is highly pigmented so a little goes along way and I find it adds a dewy Finnish to my skin and a complete utter bargain for 1.99!

2.  'Paper roses.'
This is a cream blush, it isn't necessarily high in pigmentation but it does add a natural glow to the cheeks and is buildable. This blush blends really nicely into the skin using my fingers and it also has an amazing colour that suits most skin colours because of the blush being a  light pastel pink with an almost lilac undertone.
Again this was a bargain for 1.99.

3. 'Orange county girl.'
This is also a cream blush but in more of a coral shade, it is my favorite of the three because it has the shimmer and glow of the 'Paper roses' and the golden undertone of the 'You are my sunshine.' 
I think it blends easy with my fingertips and has enough pigmentation to give my cheeks a lovely colour!
I genuinely love this blusher and would defiantly buy it again!

Whats your favorite blusher?

Waltzing through the ocean waves...

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere!
I'm no nail technician and when it comes to painting my nails it always feels like a drag, but occasionally i get the urge to be creative and paint my nails; today was one of these days.
I decided to put my first ever Essie 'Waltz' to the test and glam them up with Topshop glitter polish 'Junkyard' i think they turned out pretty ok.
Just in case your wondering i have only took pictures of one hand because no one in my house seems to know how to work my camera (even though it's pretty simple.)

My nails!

Topshop- Junkyard

Topshop- Junkyard

Essie- Waltz

Essie- Waltz

Topshop- Junkyard
Essie- Waltz


My first opinion on the Essie nail polish is that it needs at least 3 coats to become properly opaque maybe it's just because the polish is white and that's why it takes so much but either way i dislike that it takes 3 coats,   However the brush on the polish is amazing, it covers the whole nail easily. I don't think i'll be a fully converted essie lover until I've tried more colours.

Are you an Essie lover?
