Green People Bloggers Event, Reviews & Swatches*

So this is a slightly late blog post (oops) but I've finally got round to it! Last Friday, I was very kindly invited to the Green People beauty bloggers event by my friend Amy, at Koba bar (very suave and trendy and deffo not somewhere to trip up the stairs) with themselves, their products and lots of other lovely local beauty bloggers. Green People are a  Sussex based organic skincare & cosmetic company that are passionate about their products & ethos of ethical, organic beauty.

Lipstick: Mac 'Please Me'

So this product had been on my wishlist for many, many paydays before I actually went in and bought it. The amount of swatches of it I had adorned my hand with was getting a bit ridiculous. Finally, on the typical 'I've spent so much today, I might as well spend that tiny bit more' whim (story of my life),I purchased Mac's 'Please Me'. 

Wishlist: Topshop outfit #1

So I thought I would do something different and whilst browsing on Topshop in my very excited for autumn (seriously, hurry up now) state, I was drawn to some items that are definitely making their way to my payday bank balance come the end of the month. So why not go one step further in convincing yourself you need yet more clothes then a blog post with reasons you've conjured up for them? Perfect excuse!

Daily Favourites: Soap & Glory Hand Food

Hi again!

So this product has been sitting on my dressing table as a stable for quite a while so why not introduce it as it is definitely one of my daily favourites! Although saying that I always buy the travel size fits in my handbag as well as on my dressing table (I definitely have one for each.....girl problems) and smells AMAZING! Seriously so good! I think this was another "oh look it's miniature and relatively cheap, must buy!" then convince yourself that, yes, you are in dire need of a hand cream despite most definitely having about 6 at home from various bath/ fragrance sets from last christmas.

I really enjoy using this as my go-to hand cream as I get dry skin especially around my nails (years of biting nails has gotten the best of the poor guys) and at/after work (I blame paperwork) but it is so creamy and smells beautiful! My hands always feel so moisturised and soft after using it that it's no wonder I'm forever topping up the miniature version for both on the go and at home. Why I don't just buy the larger one I will never understand (the miniatures obsession strikes again) but oh well! I buy this from Boots as I save up the points on my card for more expensive essential make up products like my mascara (god damn/bless you Benefit) and just to clarify, I don't buy both of these at £2.50 each at the same time whilst the larger one is £5.00..... I bought them on separate occasions but it's something that wouldn't surprise me if I did do. 

Origins Super Spot Remover

Hi there! 

Thought I'd do something different and try a skincare post! 
(*Slight disclaimer, just because this product has worked for me, might not mean if may work in the same way for you. Everybody has different skin types & different problem areas so unless my skins been cloned this may have a varied effect from what I found.*)

Zoeva Rose Gold Brush Set

So after lots of umm-ing & aah-ing I finally purchased these after having my eye on them for months (literally, months), and I'm so glad I did! The set includes 5 face brushes, 3 eye brushes & a cute clutch-style bag to store them in, or, like me,  use as a going out bag. After using these in my normal make up routine in the mornings, instead of my older brushes, I have seen a clear difference already & can see why these are so popular! I definitely do not use as much make up as before which is always a bonus skincare-wise & feel my make up looks so much better when applied with these, than my other brushes before.

A little introduction...


So I'm slightly new to all this (after 3 hours of trying my best to make it look as organized/neat as possible...) but after months (literally, months) of deliberation, I've finally given in and set up a blog for beauty/fashion/fitness/general lifestyle posts.
