Here gooooes…

What’s your number one holy grail high street or ‘drugstore’ product?

It would have to be vaseline! I swear by it – whether it is chapped lips/skin, holding your eyebrow shape in place, highlighting your cheek bones – I love it! It is so kind to skin and soo unbelievably cheap!

Which product is currently on the top of your wishlist?

MAC Sculpt and Shape Powder to add to my contour product collection!

 Sculpt and Shape Powder

How long have you been blogging for?

I’ve been blogging now for almost three years! It has gone super quick and my blog has evolved so much over those three years. I am so happy with the direction it has taken. It all started in my room at my halls of residence at university!

What’s your favourite item of clothing for the cooler months?

I love my knit wear! My Grandma gave me a dark pink turtle neck jumper last winter and I absolutely love it! She has the matching one in light pink!

What inspired you to start your blog?

A few things inspired me really. I watched the film ‘Perfect Man’ when I was younger and had my Hilary Duff obsession. In that film the main character has a blog and it really interested me but when I was little blogging really wasn’t a thing or wasn’t as big as it is now. Another thing which inspired me to start my blog was Carrie Bradshaw! She’s a cosmopolitan, fashion loving writer from New York in the well known programme Sex and The City – and well who wouldn’t want to be her?!

The favourite part of your makeup routine?

Contouring! I loveeee contouring! I have now worked out (after a lot of trial and error!) the best shapes and shades for the different parts of my face now! I love contouring with my Sephora contouring kit – it is definitely my favourite make up item I own at the moment!

What’s your favourite brand of makeup?

MAC is definitely my favourite brand of make up. Even though at times it can be quite costly, all my items I have bought from there are amazing quality and last such a long time! I want to know that what I am putting on my skin is good for it and I can guarantee when I buy MAC branded products that I won’t have an allergic reaction or anything. Also I think the products themselves are incredible – the lipsticks especially are amazing!

What’s one product you think everyone should own?

Simple Moisturiser Light. I literally swear by this. I use it as a primer, as a moisturiser, as a hand cream and as an aftersun. It is super cheap (often in the 3 for 2 deal at Boots). I always buy this product about 3 at a time! It makes my skin feel so fresh and unlike other moisturisers it doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily. Also it’s great for all skin types – my younger cousin uses it as well as my Grandma!

What is your favourite skin care product that you feel has made the most difference in your skin?

Probably Simple Cleanser, Simple Toner and Simple Moisturiser Light used together. The cleanse-tone-moisturise routine did my skin wonders! These products are so friendly to my skin and are high street brands too so they don’t break the bank!

If you could have any celebrities hair, whose would it be?

It would have to be the old school Cheryl Cole hair do!

I love the colour, the length and the volume! Definitely hair goals!

September Favourites ♥

Can’t believe September has been and gone! It was the month my sister started her new journey at university, the month of the most family birthdays/parties and the month where autumn fashion is slowly creeping in on us!

Here are a few of my monthly gems…

I went a bit Zoella product mad this month buying ‘Zoella Madly Creamy Body Lotion’ and ‘Zoella Soak Opera Bath Soak and Shower Cream’. Her products I find are amazing. They are good quality but with a reasonable price. Often if you want a good quality product which you can trust you end up paying more money than you possibly intended, but what I love about her range of products is that her fan base (who include a vast amount of teenage girls) can actually afford them.

Zoella Creamy Madly Dreamy - Body Lotion 160mlZoella Soak Opera - Bath Soak/Shower Cream 490ml

They are sold in Superdrug and were £5.00 each. Both smell amazing – very fresh and flowery. And when you put the bubble bath into the bath you can actually smell the fragrance too. They both leave my skin feeling soft and smelling great! I love these so when these run out I will definitely be buying more!

Soap and Glory – The Righteous Butter Moisturiser

This is an old favourite of mine which I always go back to. I love the smell and the quality. Soap and Glory products are always reliable and amazing. Definitely a must have for your make up bag (they do a mini one too!).

Too Faced Cocoa Contour Kit 

Really wish I would have bought two of these from Sephora. This has definitely been my favourite product this year. I love to contour and after trying a few kits this one wins everytime. It is powder based so doesn’t clog under/over your foundation like a paste. The brush is super soft and the product itself smells so good! I literally can’t praise it enough!

On My Wish List

Kate Moss Rimmel Nude Collection

I love her 107 shade so I was so excited to see this nude collection. Now that autumn is coming in, a nude lip feels very suiting!

BB Beautique

It is so rare to find a boutique that will sell gorgeous, unique pieces and do your make up and hair professionally. Thankfully I have found just the place! BB Beautique is situated in Halifax, England (however for all my international readers don’t sweat because you can still purchase their lovely garments and make up items through their website – they ship to all over the world!).

Some of their beautiful pieces…

The beautique was set up this year by Bonnie and Natalie who are fully qualified hair and makeup artists with degrees in Fashion, Makeup and Art. I recently had my make up done by Bonnie – she is amazing! I really enjoyed having my make up done professionally with some top tips thrown in!

Here is my before and after…
