Product Review: Happiness Boutique Necklace

I am all about big and bold statement necklaces at the moment so I was thrilled when contacted by Happiness Boutique to collaborate with them! Berlin based online store Happiness Boutique sell a variety of stunning necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets as well as dresses, playsuits, skirts and so much more. Visiting their website made me so happy inside, there was such positive vibes with spreading such positive messages. They ‘aim not only to make you look good, but also to make you feel good’ I just love that!

Product Review: St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion

This product ever since it has been released has intrigued me so much, even the woman in Boots when I bought it told me that she'd love to hear my thoughts on it. How does it work? You shower like normal even cleansing your skin and then apply the lotion onto your skin straight away. Applying it in circular motions, you leave it on your skin for 3 minutes then rinse off. The tan should develop over the next 24 hours of application leaving you with a natural tan.

My MAC Make-Up Lesson and Tutorial

For my birthday I was super super lucky to be gifted with a MAC make-up session which involves a lesson and a tutorial. Of course from my blog we all know I love makeup (and one of my friends knows about my blog too) but there has always been question marks about what goes where or why something does this etc so this experience was going to be perfect for me. Obviously, I am a very socially awkward and shy person which meant that actually speaking to someone I don't know was going to be slightly dawnting for me but the lady we had was so so lovely and I had my friend with me so I was all good haha! The present involved an hour and a half session where at the end you can get £50 worth of products eeeeeeeeeek! My session was booked in Spitalfields which was such a calm, relaxed enviroment perfect to calm my anxious self haha. It was booked with a lovely lady named Dionne who was so understanding and really helpful answering all of my bizzare questions.

Guest Blogger: Evening Skincare Routine || hattyxo

When Taylor contacted me and asked if I wanted to do a guest post for her, I jumped at the chance! The best part about blogging is getting to network and do things with other bloggers! She asked me to do a post all about either my morning skincare routine, or evening skincare routine and I chose evening . I picked it because if you ask me, there's no better feeling than taking your make up after off you've had it on all day. Well that and taking your bra off the minute you get in the house! So the following is my evening skincare routine. I thought I'd talk you through it step by step.

Guest Blogger: Favourite Hair Care Products || fifiandthediamonds

I’m Antonia and I blog over at Fifi and the Diamonds. When Taylor asked me to guest post on here, of course I said yes. So i’m here today to share some of my favourite hair care products with you. Highlighting my hair for ten years has caused some serious damage to my hair, and maintaining blonde locks takes requires a lot of upkeep. I’ve found a few products that I now consider my absolute holy grails when it comes to hair care.

Guest Blogger: In A Rush Drugstore Look || saraheliza

As a teenager I always seem to be rushing from one place to the next and never have time to spend more than fifteen minutes on make up especially in the morning when who can be bothered to take time and care in making sure your make up is perfect and just want something that takes minimal effort. I thought I would share with you my "In A Rush" make up look which also is my everyday make up that I find great for college.

Guest Blogger: Ultimate Pamper Night Essentials || ohzelda


Im Zelda and I ramble on over at Ive been invited by your wonderful Taylor to come on over and invade her blog for a post, so I thought what better way to introduce myself than to have a chit chat about one of my favourite things to indulge in - a Lush pamper evening!

Theres nothing I enjoy more than having myself a right good ol pamper night, particularly when its chilly or after a busy day. Even with spring hot on our heels, the wonderful British weather carries on doing what does best - meaning even the warmest of days dont really feel that warm, and I still end up scraping ice off of my car some mornings! My whole blog pretty much illustrates that when it comes to anything LUSH (bath bombs, skincare, you name it) Im a woman obsessed, so you can expect to see a lot of it during this post! So without further ado, here are my essential steps for a tip top pamper night

Guest Blogger: Day to Night Look || yetanothermakeupblog

Doesn't everybody just love a good smokey eye? It looks good on everyone, it's so simple and yet it looks like you actually put effort in, and most importantly it's so versatile. My favourite way, aka. the easiest way, of doing the smokey eye is the "one shade all over", as it uses minimal products and  you can change it from natural looking to serious drama in a matter of seconds. (ok, maybe not seconds).

Whether you're someone who embraces the big bushy brows or someone who likes to keep them under controlled and trimmed, all you gals should know whats going on up there and how to look after them so I'm going to tell you my brow secrets and best products. Without further ado, what are we waiting for?!

Brand Focus: Rimmel London || My Top Picks

Another brand focus woop woop and it's Rimmel!

A little history for you all! Rimmel is a British cosmetics brand founded in 1834 by Eugène Rimmel. He is most famous for his innovative invention of the first commercial non-toxic mascara. When he died in 1887, his two sons inherited his beauty empire and dediced to focus on eye-enhancing products, in particular mascaras. The mascaras became so popular, that "Rimmel” is to this day the word for mascara in several languages. (Little fun fact for you all) Now bizzarely I haven't chosen a mascara for one of my top picks which now after looking at the history I find ever so bad about!! But here are my top picks....

Get To Know Me: Where I Blog || My Blogging Space

I thought I would show you all today where I sit and write my blogs as it is just a nice little peep of who I am as a person too as well as what inspires me to write a post. I use my desk as a dressing table (weird I know) and as I write my blog posts I am looking at all of my makeup. You can't really see it but on the top of the wall I have lots of polaroids of me and my friends too which was inspired by of course Pintrest.

Brand Focus: Bourjois || My Top Picks

 I thought I would start a new series on my blog called Brand Focus where I choose all my favourite products to talk about from one brand as I thought it would be really cool to see what I like and then you can comment what you products you like from the brand.
Today I am looking at Bourjois who I now have so many staple and holy grail products from! Bourjois is a French Cosmetics private company independently owned by the Werthemeir family launched in 1863. The brand is known for being "born into the world of theatre and the performing arts" as its first creator was an actor who prepared makeup for actors and actresses. 

Right top picks!
