Origins GinZing Gift Set

21 January 2015

Origins gift set
I received this gift set as a christmas present as my mum knew that id be wanting to try out some origins products for some time so i was so excited to try out these products when i received them! Firstly how cute is the little bag that the comes with this gift set, it so adorable! I think this would make the perfect gift for anyone.
This gift set includes:
-GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser 30ml
-GinZing Eye Cream 5ml
-Ginger Burst Savoury Body Wash 50ml
-GinZing Brightening Mascara 14ml
-Drink Up Hydrating Lip Balm 7ml (Berry Splash)

Although i haven't tried every single products from this gift set yet (individual reviews coming soon) my favourite has to be the moisturiser, the smell of this product is amazing it smells exactly like Terry's Chocolate Orange and it leaves you're skin feel refreshed and hydrated and also make you're skin appear a lot brighter.  Likewise the eye cream also has this amazing scent which i love and this really does help your eyes look a lot brighter especially of a morning. The lip balm is also amazing, its a hydrating lip balm which does its job well but also this has a tint to it as well and it comes in 8 different shades. I haven't tried the mascara but it claims to brighten and lift you're lashes and I've only heard good things about this product. Lastly is the ginger body wash, which I'm also yet to use as i have so many! but this product smells amazing and obviously i would recommend to anyone who loves the scent of ginger. 

Full review of these and all of the other products coming soon.


Alphabet Accesories

14 January 2015

I received all these lovely items as gifts from my lovely sister for christmas (ill leave her link at the bottom). Ive always loved these initial print products and had my eye on some for a while now so i was so happy to receive them. I think all of these would make an amazing gift for anyone and adds that extra personalised touch which everyone loves! Thinking of it these might make a lovely mothers day gift which will approach sooner than you think! 
Firstly the pillow, i love this so much i think there a cute personal touch to any bedroom and would make it look so cute and £5 i think this is such an amazing price.
These initialised candles are so cute and who doesn't love candles! These i must admit burn pretty fast but what would you expect from a little candle like this but priced at £4 i think these would look cute anywhere around the house also i must admit there isn't so much as a fragrance from this candle it just smells nice and fresh and relaxing.
Lastly is my favourite the mug, this is available from anthropology and are £6, which i was pretty surprised about as i was expecting them to be a lot more but i just love the detail on this mug like the handle and the bottom of this mug, the extra details always make a difference.
What is you're favourite?

You can find these products at the following:
Initialised pillow: Ebay
Initialised candle: Asos
Initialised mug: Anthropologie

My first post this year and in 2 months!

4 January 2015

This is my first post of the new year, can't quite believe I'm writing this as I can't believe how fast the past year has gone. Not only is this my first post of 2015 this is my first post since November! I had a long but much needed break, with me starting university in October I didn't feel I could get the balance between work and my blog and also a bit of me was being lazy, but heres to a new year of blogging, I am hopefully going to get back to regularly blogging but there will be at least one post per week. 

My five goals for 2015:

Learn to Drive 
Its been something I've been meaning to do since i turned 17 but it was something i always seemed to put on the back burner so this year, this month in fact i am determined to start my lessons. 

Get a job
Although I'm at university full time, there is definitely still room for a part time job in there and its been something I've said to myself i was going to get for a while now. 

Visit at least one country or city I've never been before
I am one of those people that seems to stick to the same places when i find something good but i love trying out new places so this year i am going to push myself to go to at least one place I've never been and id love to go to more than one if possible.

Try new things
Whether it be food, experiences or anything at all, i definitely need to step outside my comfort zone and try new things this year.

Most of all, be happy.
Be happy and do more of what makes me happy.

What are you're goals for 2015?

Eye Shadows

8 November 2014

I was very kindly sent these eye shadows by the lovely people at Deborah Milano, for those of you who don't know Deborah Milano it is a online store selling a range of makeup and skincare and also sell mens products! Personally i had never tried this brand before so i was very excited to try out this brand! I was sent two eye shadows from the 24 Ore Velvet eye shadows I chose these two colours which are numbers 07 and 19.  Number 19 is the eye shadow on the left, i find that this is the perfect beige colour for any look, this one is a lot more shimmery than the other eye shadow but its such a gorgeous colour! The other is alot more matt than the other and is a lot darker than the other as you can see. These eye shadows are both of a lovely consistancy as they both feel very soft and smooth and are so easy to blend! I absolutely love these and i would definitely recommend these to anyone especially at the price of £5.50! Also these are perfect for taking away with you as these are hie little compact eye shadows with an little applicator too!

Tropic Skincare

20 October 2014

 I was very kindly sent these products by the lovely people at Tropic Skincare, i was so excited as I've heard so many good things about their products and especially their Sculpting Palette Blush has even won an award so as you can imagine i was super excited to try out these products. For those of you who don't know Tropic Skincare was founded by Susan Ma who appeared on The Apprentice, this made it even more exciting for me as I'm a huge fan of The Apprentice. One thing i love about this brand is the fact that all of their cosmetics are free from harsh chemicals and cruelty free. 

Firstly i was sent the Body Smooth Polish 200ml £20, this product claims to smooth, polish and energise the skin and it definitely doesn't fail to do so! Firstly i love the packaging of this product, it is simple yet sleek. The smell is by far the best smelling Body Polish/ Scrub i have ever smelt, it has a very fruity, lemon scent and it literally smells AMAZING!  This product is to be used on damp skin and massaged into the skin, after doing this it really does leave your skin feeling fabulous, you're skin feels super soft and of course smells fabulous! This is honestly the nicest body scrub i have ever used and i will definitely be re purchasing this item again and 100% recommend it to anyone! 

I was also kindly sent the Sculpting Palette Blush and the Angled Brush. I literally can't say enough about this palette, it really is amazing! This palette has three different products in one, firstly is the Shadow, secondly the Colour and lastly the Highlight. I find that the Shadow is quite dark but then again i am like Caspar The Ghost but i just apply a little product to the brush and its works perfectly. The Colour and the Highlight are my two favourites, they work perfectly together and the colours are just lovely the pink is the perfect rosy pink shade and the highlight leaves your skin looking brighter and more radiant. This is priced at £24 which i think is very reasonable for this high palette and would also defintley repurchase this! Also to go with this Palette i received this Angled Brush that was priced at £14 which is about average for a a good quality brush, i definitely think this brush is worth buying as i find it is just the right size and the angled shape really does help to create the look you want. 

Overall i would defintley recommend anyone to have a try at any of the Tropic Skincare products as from what i have tried out, they are amazing and i will definitely be repurchasing.

Alchemy Oils

18 October 2014

I was very kindly sent this Grapefruit Hair Remedy Oil but Alchemy Oils, i was so excited to try this as i love finding amazing products to help my hair as i am definitely guilty of using too much heat on my hair. 
This products claims to help improve the condition of hair and help to strengthen hair and this product costs £17.99 for 100ml bottle. Firstly, i love the packaging of this product, theres something so simple and minimalist about this product that i really like, also this product has a very fresh and fruity smell to it which was lovely. 
This product is to be used before washing the hair to act as a treatment, i used this on both my scalp and the ends of my hair and i have very mixed results. I found that where i had applied this oil to my scalp it left my hair looking very greasy and was far to heavy for my hair. Whereas when i used this product on the ends of my hair it made the ends feel very conditioned and just felt overall very healthy. I found it weird at first how i had two different results on my hair using the same product but i think its down to the fact that the roots of my hair get oily easily. 
So overall i would recommend this product, especially to those who don't have oily hair but for those who do, just be careful how much you put on you're roots.

Zoella Beauty!

1 October 2014

First of all, how exciting is it that Zoella has launched a range of beauty products?! I was very excited when i saw this announcement as Zoella is one of my favourite bloggers so its amazing to see her doing so so well! I love all her products from her range as everything has super cute packaging that definitely is Zoe in packaging form!
I decided to pick up the candle and the bath fizzers from the new range! First of all, I love the candle, its so affordable and has such a nice sent that isn't too overpowering which i find in a lot of candles as this is subtle and sweet! I love the little tin that this candle comes in!
Next is the bath fizzers, firstly the concept of these fizzers are amazing its almost like a chocolate bar so you can snap off as many pieces as you wish meaning this is very very good value for money at £5 as this could last you 8 baths! This also has a lovely subtle scent! After using this product I think that this product feels very soft on your skin and makes your bath smell very fresh! 

What are you going to buy from Zoella's beauty range?
