Daniel Wellington Classic watch

Daniel Wellington Classic Watch

I was recently given the opportunity to review a watch from Daniel Wellington, I got to pick any from the website aren't I lucky ay? Ive always loved Daniel Wellington watches so I was very excited. For anyone that doesn't know Daniel Wellington,  they are a online retailer stocking a huge range of mens and womens watches

I picked the Classic Petite Sterling 28MM in the silver colour, the mesh strap is also available in rose gold and black which are both equally as pretty and available in two face sizes, 28 and 32mm. The watch can also be adjusted to fit your watch without having to do too much work, included is a booklet that shows you how to adjust it. I love the contrast of the face with strap, the black face looks gorgeous with so many outfits.

Overall I would definitely recommend ordering from Daniel Wellington they offer free postage which comes very quickly also they offer free returns so all round they offer a great service.

I also have 15% off code if you would like to purchase one yourself then use the code 'HELENAMULHEARN'

You can find the full range at Daniel Wellington here.

Pixi Beauty Review!

11 October 2017
I was recently sent over these products by Pixi by complete surprise, can you imagine waking up to this parcel?! It safe to say I was one very happy girl. Without giving away too much just yet, the products are amazing, keep reading to see what I think of each product.

Pixi beauty

Aspynovard Glow-y Powder 
pixi beauty
First of all I love this product because its a collaboration with a fellow blogger and youtuber, its so great seeing bloggers doing wonderful things like collaborating with a brand like Pixi. Also helps that this a fab product, I received the shade Rome Rose, this powder has a subtle pink tone to it make it the perfect blush shade whereas the other powders could be used as a highlighter. I like how subtle this is making it easy to build up to suit different skin tones and to create different looks. This is also only £14, a bargain for such a great product, you can find it here. 

Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse

Again a product made in collaboration with a fellow Youtuber and Blogger, this double cleanse provides a solid cleansing oil on one side and a cleansing cream on the other. I have been using this in my daily skincare routine for the past month and I have been really enjoying it so far, I have very dry skin and struggle to find things that don't irate my sensitive skin but this feels so soft and gentle on the skin, the soil cleanser also leaves my skin feeling so clean like every bit of makeup or die has been removed which is great.  This product is £24 and is available here.

Pixi Glow Tonic

I was literally so excited to try this because I have literally heard so many good things, this is a toner that aims to give smoother, brighter and clearer skin. Firstly I love the scent of this product, along with the cleanser I have started using this in my daily skincare routine and the combination of them both has left my skin looking fresh and kept spots at bay which I am loving! This product comes in two sizes, one is 100ml perfect for traveling or just for first trying the product or a larger size which is better value for money 250ml for £18 you can find it here. 

Maryam Maquillage Strobe & Bronze Palette

Again another collaboration with a blogger and youtuber, this palette features three highlighting and three bronzing shades. I have been trying them all out recently and I must say I prefer the bronzers over the highlighters for me the highlighters just aren't pigmented enough you would have to really build them up if you want a glowy look which I always want but haven't always got the time for before uni or work. Overall I do love this palette and I cant wait to use it some more, you can find it here.

Get the look- Its Eye Time

pixi its judy time eye shadow palette

Again collaboration with a Youtuber, this palette was made in collaboration with Its Judy Time a youtuber who I have watched and loved for years so I was so excited to have a product made in collaboration with her. So this eyeshadow palette has an amazing range of 12 different colours that you can see from the swatches, the colours are perfect for the autumn season, the one thing I love about this palette is how pigmented these shades are and they blend out so well I'm obsessed with shade ping and night night, they both are incredible colours to blend! You can find this palette here. 

I hope you enjoyed this review of Pixi Beauty, have any of you tried and loved any of their products? Let me know!

Sensse Beauty

19 September 2017
I was recently sent over two different products by Sensse Beauty to try out and its safe to say I was very excited to get testing them!

Go Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush 

This facial cleansing brush has become a staple in my skincare routine every night since I started using it, I simply apply my facial wash on the brush and turn it on, it comes with two different speeds  to fit into what ever skincare routine you like. This comes with two interchangeable heads, one for sensitive skin and one for exfoliation. It claims to 'gently exfoliates with over 600 oscillations per minute to deeply cleanse your skin and remove blackheads and other impurities.' Which I definitely have to agree with.
A great thing about this is its size, it is travel size so makes it easy to take anywhere with you, its also cordless and lasts for 180 times without needing charging. 

You can find this here. 

Next is the Facial Contour Definer, although you may feel this looks a bit ominous as I did when I opened this parcel. This is basically gives you a mini face massage whilst at the same time giving your jawline a lot definition by fitting into the contour of your face. This promotes the blood circulation and stimulates collagen. So far after trying this I have really been enjoying it!

To find out more about SENSSE products you can have a look here 

Swarovski Crystalline Pen

3 September 2017

I was recently sent over this gorgeous Swarovski  Crystalline Pen available from T.H. Baker, this pen features a glittery design at one end and then a block colour at the other, in my case I received the lilac colour but there are a range of different colours available.

One thing I love about this pen is that it doubles up as stylus, the end of the pen can be used on any electrical devices, I've been using mine quite a lot on my phone recently and I've been really enjoying using it!

I think this makes a great gift, maybe for someone for starting university or as a graduation present. This also comes nicely packaged so it looks like a lovely gift and one I would personally love to receive. This is priced at £35 which is pretty reasonable if you ask me!

You can find the range here.

New In: 3INA Makeup Review

30 August 2017
I was recently sent over some products from 3INA Makeup, a brand I quite literally had never heard of before. After some research I discovered they have been on the beauty scene for over a year They sent me over some of there best selling products so I'm going to tell you all what I think of them!

The Highlighter 201 

This highlighter has been sold out for months so I feel ver lucky to have on I'm my possession, firstly this comes in a square black packaging which is plain, simple but works well, the shade itself is almost a rose gold shade. Once swatched I immediately thought that this looked so pretty but upon applying i realised that i have to apply quite a bit of the highlighter for it to become noticeable as you will see from my swatch below it comes up quite pale on my skin. Overall though this is a gorgeous shade a more subtle one but still gorgeous, this comes with the added bonus of it being cruelty free. This is available here for £10.95

The Cream Eyeshadow 312

How gorgeous is this eye shadow, again a cruelty free product. This is a gorgeous pinky, purpley colour and I just cant get enough of it! The packaging again features the black simple look but comes in a little glass pot which again I really like. The formula is so creamy and feels so luxurious, once you've blended and left to set it doesn't budge all day so is great if you want a long lasting make up look. This is available for £8.95, amazing price right?!? you can find it here.

Longwear Lipstick 503

I was so excited when I seen this product as its literally one of my favourite shades, I loved how this product felt on the lips it was super soft and silky and dried pretty fast which I loved. The colour payoff is really good and it is very long wearing, something we all look for in a lipstick. This is available here for £7.95.

Overall Im very impressed with all the products I have tried and I would definitely recommend these products to anyone as they all come in a range of shades to suit everyone.

I chose Narciso Rodriguez perfume as it's one of my favourites, for anyone who hasn't tried this perfume before it describes itself as 

"Narciso Rodriguez Eau de Parfum is seductive fragrance for women, which contains sensual musk, orange, amber, osmanthus, vanilla, vetiver and amber. "

What I love about this perfume, is its very soft and not overpowering but at the same time it lasts all day making it perfect for day to day wear. I love the plain, simple packaging of this product, I'm loving pink at the moment!

The service
Overall I am very pleased with my experience from Perfume Click, their customer service is great, they are available to email or phone five days a week. The delivery was pretty fast which is always great, the item came well packaged to ensure the item wasn't damaged

14 August 2017

Todays post is going to cover storage solutions as now a days businesses are finding it harder to find cheap storage facilities and this is becoming a bigger issue for these owners, if storage isn't properly taken care of it can come at a huge cost whereas good storage will benefit your business and encourage growth.

All business have some storage needs that have to be taken care of whether your a online business and need inventory and paper work or your a physical business and require products being stored.

They offer a number of storage solutions including Pallet Racking, Partitioning, Repairs etc...

Well I am going to talk you through some business storage solutions that can be provided by professional companies based on your custom needs. 

De-cluttering the inventory and organising it
A lot of the time a inventory can get busy very quickly and before you know it, its all cluttered by de cluttering you can ensure that this will never happen and that you are not wasting room in your inventory for unwanted items. Also keeping your inventory organised ensures that your maximising the space available to you.

Using Shelves
Using shelves helps to ensure that all of your products in your inventory can be organised efficiently, everything is easy to find a system can be put into place. Again this will ensure that you are maximising the space that is available to you.

Putting an automated stock check system 
This ensure that you are able to check what stock you have efficiently without the need to get confused and have to search your inventory to see if you have a particular item. This allows for smooth running of your business and hopefully will be a lot more efficient.

Using proper business storage solution where everything is organised in custom pallets
Pallet racking is an example of this, it is used in warehouses and manufacturing facilities and many companies, for example: Warehouse Storage Solutions offer pallet racking in Wakefield with range of different types such as push back pallet racking, external pallet racking and narrow aisle packing. 

What I got for my 21st Birthday!

8 August 2017
So last week it was my 21st birthday, I looked forward to it for so long. Unfortunatly my mum was in hospital all week so what we had planned a spa day and overnight stay in a luxury suite had to be cancelled and last minute plans without mum were arranged. Of course it wasn't the same but we made the most of a bad situation. My mum was able to come out of hospital for a few hours a couple of days later so our party went ahead at the weekend. Luckily mum is doing ok, she's still in hospital but doing ok and were hoping she will be out of hospital this week and our spa break can be rearranged.

Anyways I thought I would show you what I got. All my family gave me money including my parents who generously put a large amount of money into a premium bond so I don't spend it and it can be used to buy my first car. So here are the gifts i received to go with my money.

 My boyfriend very kindly bought me these lovely gifts, including my favourite sweets which id already eaten when these photos were taken. He bought me these pjs bottoms after knowing id searched everywhere for them!

These gifts were bought by my parents, after not asking for anything and knowing i was receiving money for a car I was very surprised to see these amazing gifts as i was expecting nothing. As you can imagine the White Company gifts were the most amazing of all as I've wanted them socks for ages and the pjs are unbelievably soft!
