Born Pretty Store





I recently got the opportunity to review some items from Born Pretty Store. For anyone who hasn't heard of Born Pretty Store, its basically a online store selling absolutely everything you could possibly think of in one shop from stationary to nail art to clothes and jewellery they have it all.

I decided to pick some jewellery, you may have see previously I selected some stationary so I'm slowly but surely making my way through all the categories on there. Now I selected four rings and one pair of earrings, which are all so reasonably priced

The first ring I got is this V ring, I used to see these everywhere a while ago and I love them I think they can make quite the statement to quite a plain outfit. This is available in silver and in gold for 70p! You can find it here.
Next is this waved ring which I love but could kick myself as its the wrong way round on the picture as it has rhinestones all over it, I actually think this is my favourite of them all and its literally priced at £2.59. You can find it here. Ow and for all you rose gold lovers, its also available in rose gold. The next ring is very similar and has rhinestones scattered, I like both the waved rings worn on the same finger. This is avaliable in gold and is priced at 91p!!
The last ring I got was this star ring, how cute is it as you can tell I love silver rings and this is no exception, this one is no longer available on the website but I'm sure you will find so many rings you love if you have a look.
Overall sizing of these rings were perfect for me, some of the things you are able to adjust where as some you are not but I would say they do come up at about a size small.

Lastly is the earrings, I love these, you don't actually see the gold colour from the front you just see one pearl on its own then it has all the other pearls underneath the ear lobe, it looks adorable and so much more than the 70p which it costs!! You can find them here. 

I have a 10% discount code for you all too: HYYT10

I was literally so excited to recieve a email that Spectrum wanted to work with me as its one of them brands I always look at and put something in my basket and be like oh no I shouldn't, I am trying to save so as you can imagine when these arrived in the post I literally was so happy.

This is from the attention seeker range and is the 10 piece essential set, this stet includes the following:
*Buffer brush
*Powder Brush (domed)
*Angled Brush
*Concealer Brush
*Fluffy Shader Brush
*Tapered Blender Brush
*Angled Blender Brush
*Angled Brow Brush
*Lip Liner Brush
*Angled Eyeliner Brush

This set comes to a total of £39.99 for 10 brushes which basically works out at £5 per brush which is super cheap. Lets talk about the pattern of these brushes, how cute are they? Literally like a unicorn. Also these are vegan and cruelty free so bonus.

Now onto the brushes them selves, on first feel of them they are very very soft on the skin and they literally feel amazing they apply my makeup great without leaving any stroke marks at all. My favourite of them all has to the buffer brush i use this to apply my contour and buff it into the skin, and its does just that really well, I've found with other brushes previously they don't buff the product in as much as i would like so this has become a fond favourite of mine already. Another favourite of mine is the angled brush, I have been using this for my highlighter and it applies it really well and this too has become a fond favourite of mine that I now use everyday.

Overall I'm very impressed by these brushes most of these (apart from the eye brushes because i don't use them daily) have become part of my daily routine and i would 100% recommend these to anyone they are such quality for the price. You find this set here.

propercorn, Smooth Peanut & Almond, Fiery Worcester & Sun-Dried Tomato, Sweet Coconut & Vanilla, Sweet & Salty, Sour Cream & Black Pepper, Lightly Sea Salted,

Proper corn very kindly sent me some popcorn and when i opened the very colourful treasure chest like box and it had so many packets in it I was like woahhh! There were so many flavours that i had never heard of before too so I was very excited to try out these new flavours, i KK five different flavours to try including:

Lightly Sea Salted- These were as they said only lightly salted they weren't strong in flavour really just tasted like there was a sprinkle of salt over the packet but still pleasant as a light bite.

Sour Cream & Black Pepper- These were my second favourite out them all, the black pepper was quite prominent in this flavour and the sour cream gave a creamy flavour to them there just so nice and so different to any popcorn that I have ever tried before.

Sweet & Salty- This is my favourite flavour its more sweet than salty but you can taste the bitterness of the salt coming through and it makes the nicest flavour, I'm literally eating these as I am writing this, literally these are my new obsession I would go as far as to say that its better than the popcorn you get in the cinema.

Sweet Coconut & Vanilla- Straight away opening this packet you smell the flavour its very strong in both flavour which an be a bit overpowering but both flavours come through to great a really nice combination.

Fiery Worcester & Sun-Dried Tomato- This one is as you would expect very strong in tomato flavour, but the Worcester gives it almost a heat and makes it spicy in a weird way but it works well together.

Smooth Peanut & Almond- the peanut flavour is definitely the most dominate flavour in this packet as the almond helps to keep it a kick but definitely is very strong in flavour. Again this one has a very creamy flavour to it.

Overall there would be two of the flavours I would 100% buy again because I love which are the Sweet & Salty and the Sour Cream & Black Pepper as they are amazing and I would definitely recommend.

Believa- Cleansing Milk



believe cleansing milk

This Believa cream is a cleansing milk, this is a gentle cream that can be used on cracked, itchy and dry skin, with me having eczema I thought it would  be great for me to try this out. 
I have been using this as a moisturiser twice a day once in the morning and once in the night as I have to keep my skin moisturised at all times to keep my eczema at bay. I have to say that its as good as my Dermol moisturiser that I use on a daily basis, it leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and moisturised as it should even though I don't have eczema on my face I have been using it on face as a daily moisturiser similarly twice a day and it leaves my face feeling amazing so soft and refreshed. 
The only thing I will say about this product it probably isn't the cheapest on the market as although its priced at £15.99 this is only for a 250ml bottle. 

Overall I would definitely recommend this cream, to anyone with or without a skin condition as it leaves your skin feeling amazing.

Degusta Box- July







So if you read my blog regularly you will know that I get a Degusta box every month to review on my blog and this month was no different, so i am going to review the products I received in this months box!

Rowntrees Fruit Pastilles Fusions- these are the same concept as the original Fruit Pastilles but they have three fusions; orange & grapefruit, Raspberry & Pomegranate, Apple & Elderflower. They were very fruity and tasty but there isn't as much variety in a normal pack of fruit pastilles. 

Alo Drink- This drink contains real Aloe Vera so obviously has lots of benefits, and makes a great drink for whilst at the gym although this is on the more expensive side at £2.45 a bottle. 

Jordans Muesli- in the previous boxes I have seen this muesli but this was swiss flavoured which contained wheat flakes, oats, raisins and almonds all containing natural ingredients for a hearty breakfast. 

Itsu Crispy Seaweed Thins- personally i don't like seaweed but for those that do I will talk about this anyway these are packed full of goodness and are priced at £1 per pack, these  super thin seaweed make a great on the go snack. 

Bahlsen Choco Leibniz Biscuits- I love these biscuits, they are priced at 40p per pack and contain two biscuits on each pack. They have a smoke like chocolate on one side and biscuit on the other and are perfect for tea dipping. 

Seabrook Crisp- These are lattice crisp in a chorizo flavour, these are one of two new flavours that have been brought out, and are priced at £1.99 each.

Rejuvenation Water- this is a amino aid enchried water, i received the orange flavour in my box which was lovely the water itself is quite weak in flavour but still nice none the less, this is meant to help with stress, anxiety and also help a hangover if drunk before your alcohol intake. 

Cracker Drinks- i was sent the coconut, lime and pineapple flavour. These contain no added sugar or sweetness and provides you with one of your five a day. These are priced at £1.50 each which is pretty standard. 

Brookside Chocolates- These are blueberry flavoured dark chocolate with a soft centre but rich in flavour these are on the expensive side at £3.40 each.


If you would like to get your hands on a Degusta box you can get £6.00 off this box using the code: BLDEG15

DIY- Card Making Kit








I got sent a lovely card making kit by Stampin up, now a lot of you probably don't know but i used to make cards all the time it used to be a really big hobby of mine so i thought why not have a go again?
This kit is the Water Colour Kit called Watercolor Wishes( what a cute name). 
This kit includes the following:
  • 20 Watercolour Cards 
  • Stickers
  • Washi Tape
  • Kraft Box
  • Sequins 
  • Stamp set (block, stamp, dimensionals)
  • Cut out accents (including wood one)

This kit literally has everything you will need, you will not need to reach for anything else other than whats contained in this box. I think this is perfect for anyone over the age of 16 as i think they would then appreciate everything in this box.
I love the watercolour theme of this box as all of the cards are so beautiful designs in different patterns and colours making there a perfect design for everyone and then there is literally so much you can do with each card whether its add stamps, add an embellishment its entirely up to you. 





Above you can see the stamp set, at first i was so confused about what i was meant to do but in fact its very simple. In the pack there is a back of what look like stickers but are in fact transfers so you put the transfer on the block and then cover it in which ever coloured stamp you wish you can see below i used the blue stamp and transfers it on to this cut out which i have stuck on to the striped card that comes in the pack.
I ended up giving this card to my dad for fathers day and he loved it, handmade cards always add that extra special touch because you have took time and effort to create them.

Overall i would really recommend this kit, its so fun and enables you to produce beautiful cards for any occasion.

To get your hands on one of these you can click here, these retail for £31.50 each.
