My May Birchbox

I did end up resubscribing again for the next six months and was super excited to receive the 'For the dreamers' edition box. It didn't obviously arrive on the usual first Friday of the month which was a little sad , but I didn't have to wait very long for it! All the subscribers were in for a chance to win a dream holiday in collaboration with Destinology Holidays. They are giving away 2 dream holidays to the lucky subscribers with a secret message on their box. Who wouldn't love a holiday for 2 to one of the dream destinations? I could really do with a free holiday after working away so hard since my last trip! After rummaging through my bag for a 2 pence piece and the tedious scratching

FREAKSHAKES | @MollyBakesCupcakes

When you decide you want a cool sweet and heavy beverage on a warm day out in London....Where do you go? Molly Bakes! A few weekends ago when it was super hot sandal weather, my sister and I decided to walk through to Kingsland Road and stop off at Molly Bakes Cafe to try one of their Freakshakes. OK....So we just about got there and saw the mahoosive que outside. We waited for nearly an hour before we could even start to take a sip of our drink. IT WAS DEFINITELY WORTH THE WAIT! Molly Bakes comprises of an actual production bakery and the Cafe. Check our their website for some more information and also their huge client list! The Cafe is located on Kingsland Road, in the middle of a quite

Spectrum Marbleous Collection Brushes

How pretty are these brushes from Spectrum?? They are just so gorgeous and I fell in love with them as soon as I saw a feature on the Birchbox Instagram account. I received the C03 brush in one of my birchboxes not so long ago which I fell in love with and I knew how great it worked, so that tempted me even more to purchase this set. The Marbleous brushes are all finished with rose gold, white and grey. These are the perfect colours and very on trend at the moment, definitely Instaworthy! So many people have posted their brushes ( #spectrumcollections) and they just look lush and each time I see a new picture, I fall in love all over again!. I purchased the full 12 piece set, as I could not

Back to MAC

I had accumulated so many Mac empties in the last couple of months, especially after de-potting my eye shadows and coming to the end of my long lasting concealers and skin finish powder, that I was super excited to go drop these off to Mac in exchange for a free Mac Lipstick! A couple of months ago I picked up 'D for Danger' and more recently I picked up 'Sin'. This is a great way to add to my collection of lipsticks without feeling so guilty about how often I dont wear them! Some people don't know about the scheme that Mac offers, so are really surprised and excited when I mention it. I can see them counting away in their mind trying to figure out which items they are nearly done with! So t

Empties: April

Lots and lots of skin care items have come to an end or nearly finished. I have tried not to purchase any different skin care products as I am trying to stick to a regime of certain items for them to work their magic. I am only alternating with the exfoliating part of my routine, using different pads/lotions are different times of the day or the week, but sticking with just a few products. I really do find that it has made a difference in the appearance of my skin , especially when my sister tells me that I'm looking radiant! 1. Body Shop Vitamin E Cream. I have used this night cream for nearly a decade and I cant fault it. It’s got the right amount of creaminess to wear at night on top of

Its super pretty and is the perfect design for the start of spring. They have a variety of pretty items ranging from notebooks to 'to do ' lists. Just up my street!

This months products are a collection of goodies to get started with spring to make you feel bright & beautiful. I have been using my items for a full month now to get a better feel of the products. Some were fab and the others were not so much my thing. I love the Benefit Dew The Hoola. Ive not
