A Few Of My August Favourites

So what is on the agenda for this month? Well I have been trying a fair amount of different products from ranges but I think I have a new addiction to the beauty products from And Other Stories. The And Other Stories store opened in Manchester a couple of months back and I decided to properly have a look inside. 

I have already heard a great deal about it from other bloggers, Youtubers and Instagramers - personally I just thought it was going to be another one of those overpriced minimalist stores that are all the trend nowadays where you practically need a mortgage just for buying a t-shirt or a pair of jeans. 

Despite them having some actually lovely sleek pieces in store I also managed to find my way to the beauty product section and I have a jolly wonderful time trying out everything.

I ended up purchasing four things to try which include the Devore cleansing lotion, Natte Anti-stress Seeping masque plus both the Punk Bouquet hand lotion and body spray which are my favourites. The And Other Stories beauty range is not tested on animals thankfully although it being 100% vegan friendly may differ. 

The gorgeous 'Body pudding' body cream from the new Zoella Beauty range for just £8.00 is deliciously thick, with tiny pink beads embedded making it resemble sprinkles in an ice cream pot!

With a splash of elderflower and pomegranate this cream gives you such beautiful skin after it has been massaged in. It's lovely to use and I just think the smell is delicious.

And Other Stories hand lotion in 'Punk Bouquet' is an absolute god send for me - I think I've used almost all of it by now. Due to a skin condition I get with my hands and with the job I do I can get really dry hands. 

But the scent in general with frothy vanilla, tiger orchid and lotus is a heavenly mixture.The macadamia oil in this gives your skin a luxurious feel and there is sweet almond oil inside too for a booster in the vitamin E department and leaves your hands extra soft. I love it!

Now NYX brought out their new 'Professional Total Control Drop Foundation' around a month ago, I was fairly interested in trying it out as I have quite a large handful of their products already. I was impressed by the large amount of shades NYX had from pale tones to darker ones and I thought this was a good step within the make up industry to finally start catering to all shades. 

So I gave it a try and the applicator is a dropper-tipped shades (almost resembling a medicine bottle). I found the application quite easy enough because I do use a blender for my foundation anyway but this may not suit everyone's tastes. However the in the product's name "Control Drop" should give it away immediately that this isn't your regular foundation. 

As for the formula I found that it was incredibly runny,  I will be honest by saying I wasn't taken at first but the more I continued to use this product it became easier once I figured out how to properly deal with it in my own way. 

I do love the velvet matte finish it gives, it comes across as very natural looking too and the formula is extremely lightweight too. It does not leave your skin cakey or heavy either which is always a plus when it comes to foundation.

However you need more than 4-5 drops to get the full coverage. The bottle is fairly small for the amount you pay for though and I do think you should get more for £14. 

The 'Devore cleansing lotion' is quite small and the way it all comes out reminds me of hair dye bottles at the most. The product itself is very milky, smooth with a tint of hazel leaf but it does an excellent job at purifying your skin and removing all the excess day's grime. 

As for 'Natte Anti-stress sleeping masque' I find that it's lovely to pop on after a nice shower before bed, it's extremely moisturising and a good boost as an overnight mask.

The product contains arginine and a touch of oat to help relax the skin and give you a much more radiant look in the morning. I only use this product every now and again not so much everyday due to not wanting to clog my pores too much. So far I find that it's quite decent. 

Primark have been upping their game recently as well and almost every blogger knows this nowadays. 

Primark has been catering to everyone of all ages from their wide range of Disney products, the unicorn and mermaid fad, copper homeware which is very blogger tier and all the other latest on trend pieces that are out there these days. 

Its just that Primark does everything for a much cheaper price however compared to other stores where the most simple items can amount to a small fortune. 

But I found that within Primark's beauty section they are now doing many other new things I have never seen Primark sell before. These include body oils, face masks, hair masks and foot care products. While everything was incredibly enticing I decided to just leave it off for now and I ended up buying this 'Sleep, Pillow and Body spray' from their new collection. 

It's actually really refreshing! You give your pillows in bed a quick squirt and it leaves them smelling lovely. It's nice to snuggle down in bed and fall asleep with a long-lasting floral scent under your nose. I will be going back for more Primark beauty products very soon! 

As for the And Other Stories body spray in 'Punk Bouquet' it was a favourite from the get go when I had a quick squirt of it while I was stood inside the shop. It's a very light scent with tiger orchid and a tad of dewy lotus flower added in for good measure. There is a spark of almond too and tangerine. It's such a beautiful scent!

What beauty products have you got on the agenda for this month? Have you been raving over a particular beauty range like me too? If so please share!


The New Zoella Jelly & Gelato Collection!

So by now I am assuming most of you have already found out about the new Zoella Jelly & Gelato collection Zoella released a week ago? If not then where have you been!

Products from the new collection have already been scattered everywhere on Instagram, Twitter, Youtube and Snapchat which of course is to be expected in this day and age. 

But honestly though her Jelly & Gelato products are totally gorgeous from the pretty packaging design with the lovely splash of pastel and gold mingled together for that beautiful summery mixture.

To the actual product themselves which I have been using and I am being honest by saying that they smell absolutely amazing! 

So far I think this range and her previous one Sweet Inspirations have been total hits as they have both been introduced so beautifully in their packaging and have smelt brilliant. Inspired by fruity jelly sweeties and lovely gelato, I would say that this collection is perfect for summer. 

Also everything is animal cruelty free and nothing has ever been tested on animals from Zoella beauty which makes me love her even more!

The gorgeous 'Body pudding' body cream for just £8.00 is deliciously thick with tiny little pink beads embedded making it appear like sprinkles! 

It contains the scent of elderflower and pomegranate alas giving you beautiful skin after it is massaged into the skin. It's lovely to use and I just think the smell is heavenly.

I immediately had first dips on the shower shake as I saw it on Instagram and I knew I just needed it. It's so cute! I love how it's in the shape of a straw popping out at the top too! I just think it's really unusual yet so trendy. 

The scent is extremely fruity with citrus undertones and leaves you feeling refreshed after a good scrub for just £6.99!

The Gelat' Eau body mist is £8.00 and is also very fruity - I can only describe it being as if you were to squirt an entire pack of Starburst on yourself. It is quite a prominent scent but it isn't sickly though. 

Again it is mostly citrusy as well but it does have a dash of elderflower jelly undertones plus some rich cream added in it too. 

It's lovely for just throwing on when you're off out on a hot day! 

So far these are some of the products I have purchased from the Jelly and Gelato collection which is available now on the Superdrug website, instore and in at FeelUnique

There is plenty of other items too but these are just what interested me the most and I felt that I wanted to share them! 

What do you all think of Zoella's gorgeous new collection? Will you purchase anything too?


What I Wore: The Little Blue Dress

So this is probably my first outfit post! I usually define my style as incredibly feminine with perhaps a vintage twist and classic feel. I do enjoy my Adidas kicks, a pair of tight black jeans and a cute baggy top on from time to time too. 

But when I get the chance I love to go all out and dress as pretty as possible! I am really loving lace and all these beautiful ruffles at the moment too, I continue to see them pop up each time I head on to Instagram or in stores. You can never have enough ruffle and lace in my opinion anyway! 

The fabric is woven with broderie anglaise too with at least three layers of frills,  a frilly front and back too, the waist is gathered seam and the skirt flared with lining included. 

I had my eye on this gorgeous blue dress from H&M and I thought it would be perfect for this summer. It's baby blue which is a colour I don't own as much so I thought the switch from my usual white and black was a change.

A good one though! I'm glad I did buy it because this dress as received so many compliments. It was a little pricey... but it is a dress which would look lovely on occasions too as well as the odd sunny day out.

Plus the quality is fairly decent too and I would rather pay for a dress which compliments my style, rather than a cheaper dress that miss the mark and fall apart in the wash after the first wear. 

The sizing for this dress only goes from S/M and M/L so I would advice anyone around a size 10/12 to just go for the smaller size because it's incredibly loose. It's like a tent! Its super loose and comfy though which is a bonus! 

The cut is just up my street too which lands just above the knee - I'm 5'8 and for me it feels perfectly fine. I love how the ruffles on the shoulders look when wearing the dress as it makes me feel like I am being whizzed away to Wonderland... it feels classical and cute

To finish off I paired the dress with these black double strap shoes from ASOS which gives the outfit a slightly dolly but retro kind of vibe. I added my trusty pink watch on too (I never go anywhere without it!) and topped the look off with my cat eye leopard sunglasses. 

I like to imagine this look stirs in the cutesy direction but with a grown up appeal applied to it as well. I am all for dolly and adorable but I don't like to overdo it too much. 

However I am pleased with this first outfit post! 

Dress: H&M
Bag: Ted Baker
Shoes: ASOS
Sunglasses: Oliver Bonas
Watch: Olivia Burton


Featuring 'Classic Petite' Daniel Wellington's New Collection!

I am very pleased to announce that the beloved and well known watch brand Daniel Wellington has recently released their newest collection "Classic Petite" which is a gorgeous range of elegance you are able to wear daily on the go. 

Daniel Wellington was extremely kind enough to send me a beautiful Classic Petite Bondi watch in the rose gold edition. How amazing is that?! I would say pretty bloody amazing. 

I'm head over heels in love with it too! It's just stunning and I have been wearing it ever since I received it. 

I adore how it has a timeless appeal to it but the rose gold brings the watch into modern day. 

The Classic Petite Bondi comes in the colours rose gold and silver however I ended up going with the rose gold. For those who read my blog you all probably know I am just obsessed with rose gold and couldn't pass up that opportunity! 

It's very delicate and tiny which is what I treasure about this watch as it is simply just enough and not one of those huge bulky watches. 

The smaller the better in my opinion when it comes to watches - plus I think the sizing makes it very stylish as does the colour white that meshes perfectly with the rose gold. The white gives the watch a fresh appearance and since the collection was released this summer - personally though I think it's the best colour scheme

In terms of the quality I find that the watch is excellent with an extremely firm band and buckle with loops through without struggle. I also find it very endearing to see the "DW" engraved there too. It's just a sweet little personal touch. 

The strap is genuine leather as well so I expect great wear out of this watch and I hope that the white doesn't peel within time too quickly. I have had other watches before today and they have gone really quickly on me or the strap has eroded after a few wears which is no good. So only time will tell with the new Classic Petit Bondi watch. 

It works perfectly fine as well and I have had no trouble when it came to operating the watch. 

So far so good! 

For those reading who are interesting and would like their very own Classic Petit Bondi watch you are able to get a discount of 15% by using "CHEYANNE15" but hurry! It only lasts until the 15th of July 2017. 

What are your thoughts on the new Classic Petit Bondi watches? Impressed? I most certainly am! 


Introducing Pretty Vulgar! The Prettiest New Cosmetics Brand Going!

So we are already aware of the existing cutesy brands such as Too Faced, Revolution, Etude House and other various ones but now there is a new addition to that variety which is Pretty Vulgar

Around a couple of months ago I was messaged about Pretty Vulgar by another blogger friend of mine and I had a look around at their Instagram page where all their new items were being advertised.   

I was just amazed by how gorgeous everything was because everything literally meets my taste from the dippings of rose gold applied to their products, the gorgeous floral prints and vintage theme Pretty Vulgar has going on. I instantly had heart in my eyes and I craved everything. 

Sadly Pretty Vulgar are only based in the US at the moment however you are able to purchase on their official website as they do offer international shipping. Also Sephora is holding the brand at their stores and online store too so you are definitely able to get hold of Pretty Vulgar's items. 

Hopefully Beauty Bay may eventually begin to get in some of the Pretty Vulgar products as well since they do sell a lot of international beauty products too, making it easy in terms of cheaper shipping and dodging customs completely. Luckily I did not have to pay any custom fees and the products came straight to my doorstep. 

I would definitely say this brand is slowly becoming one of my favourites from the pretty packaging to the quality of their products - it has all been fantastic. 

The Feathers - Mascara 

I just absolutely adore this mascara I think it's so unique and beautiful! I have never seen a mascara like this before either. Its a birdcage and the little bird at the top just makes me squeal everything I get it out of its box! So cute! 

Pretty Vulgar's mascara "The Feathers" is of decent quality I would say although like any mascara at first it is bounce to be slightly blotchy. Eventually the formula will even out so you won't end up with bat wings for eye lashes. It's a very high volume mascara I would say and the brush is curved in a way which will lift you eye lashes, enhancing a high volume, lengthy and curled appearance. 

I find it very easy to apply as I do tend to use these type of brushes fairly often, however it may not be to everyones taste depending on the types of mascara brushes you are usually comfortable with. 

The forumla is combined with vitamin B5 including sodium hyaluronate helping moisture and thickness of your lashes. But due to this blend the outcome you get from this mascara is a blotch-free and long lasting finish. 

Once I have finished this mascara I think I would probably re-buy it but mostly for the design more so than anything else. I use this mascara sparingly most of the time though simply because I just find it too beautiful to keep using! So I would rather save it if anything.

Bury Them With A Smile Lipstick - Shade "Back Stabber"

This lipstick is by far my favourite at the moment and must have for anyone out there who is after a new shade! I haven't stopped using it since I purchased this either. Every single day I've been using it - long gone the usage of my Mac lippies in exchange for this baby! 

The quality is incredibly good and it has surprised me because I was a bit unsure when I bought this that the quality may not meet my expectations. But since the launch was over in America originally and there was no way to really see these lipsticks in person apart from Youtube videos or just basing what I see in the adverts online. 

It isn't always easy to distinguish what you see in photographs and videos as the product may be completely different in your own hands. So I went in for the kill and just ordered one (not because the packaging is beautiful... okay maybe that too!). 

In general I find that their matte lipstick's formula incredibly firm but it isn't dry and it's very high definition. Due to it being matte as well Pretty Vulgar's lipstick is also super saturation too which accomplishing long lasting coverage on your lips. Also delivering hydrating oils and butters so that your stay fresh and beautiful. 

There is also 7 other shades available and I purchased "Back Stabber" which is this lovely dark red with a tint of fuchsia thrown in for good measure. It's a bit darkeron your lips compared to the photographs shown on their website I think but it's near the same colour.

I love this shade either way and I think it goes amazing with all my current summer outfits. I feel extremely confident and gorgeous every time I apply this colour. I just think it's perfect. 

I would definitely repurchase this lipstick and probably a couple more from Pretty Vulgar now that I am aware their lipsticks are great quality. Plus I have been eyeing their liquid lipsticks too and I really want to give those a try! Hopefully they are just as decent as their matte lipsticks. 

In terms of the price range for Pretty Vulgar's items is fairly good I think especially for what you get in return. I would say it is no more expensive than Mac and NYX at best. 

Mascara - £18.50

Lipstick - £18.50

Now I would like to know what do you think of Pretty Vulgar so far? Would you buy anything from this brand or not?  Thank you for reading!


Here Is Why You Will Adore Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer!

If you are already a hardcore Benefits Cosmetics fan then perhaps you already know about the new launch this month featuring three different concealers. 

But for those who don't you are in for such a treat! As Benefits Cosmetics have released their Boi-ing concealer with a whole new pretty pink packaging design along with the Boi-ing Hydrating concealer and lastly the product being the Boi-ing Airbrush concealer which is new to the Boi-ing Benefit Cosmetics family. 

Now this is actually the first concealer I have purchased from Benefit as I usually just opt for their eyebrow products if I am honest. But since I was running out of my favourite NYX concealer I thought I would give something else a try and after seeing other bloggers reveal the new Benefits Cosmetics concealers - despite falling in love with the adorable packaging, I thought I would give the new Boi-ing Airbrush concealer a run for its money. 

My skin tone is always a bit of a nuisance when it comes down to foundations because not only am I fussy with the formula as my skin type is very oily in general. But then there is matching and my skin has a yellowish tinge so sometimes I find products look either too light or dark on me which is annoying.

I already knew right away that I would have to get this product in the No. 3 since No. 2 after trying a swatch of it in store was a bit too light.

I thought that No.3 was far more ideal and I am glad I went with this choice in the end actually. It's a perfect match!

So I have been using this past week during my usual morning make up routine, I find the formula extremely creamy but also holding silky tinge to it as well. It's fairly light which is what I really like about it and smoothing some under my eyes I noticed that it isn't as dry looking compared to other concealers I've used in the past. 

Some I have used from brands such as Maybelline or Sleek but they have been either too patchy, flakey with bits of crumble coming off or chalky. You can imagine how pleased I am with this concealer though... 

Although due to the formula's coverage being only subtle it won't cover amazingly huge circles but just enough to make them not as obvious.

Also having tried some on my blemishes over on my forehead and chin I find it does the job fairly nicely which is exactly what I am after when I purchase a concealer. I like them to be not too cakey but just enough to make my flaws look minor at best. 

So for the price of £17.50 I do think that the new Boi-ing Airbrush concealer is worth the money but only if you would use this on pretty much an everyday basis more or less.

It's handy for work to keep in your handbag for when you need that quick top up in the loo or at university on days where you have those killer early morning lectures but perhaps you don't want to give away the obvious to your tutor that you stayed up all night partying. 

Then there is if you are like me and can't be bothered to put on a face of make up so a dap of concealer over your tired is the way to go for when you want to just nip to Tesco! With the way I'm going with this concealer it will probably be gone by the end of next month... 

You can purchase here on Benefit Cosmetics official website or over at Boots where they retail it there as well. 

But what do you think of the new Airbrush Boi-ing concealer? Would you give it a go? Let me know! 


Want To See Whats On My July Beauty Wishlist? Come See!

Ah so here we are again... make up, more make up and even more make up. But can a lady really have too much? Nah, not really! 

So what exactly is on my July wishlist this pay day? Well for one there is so many gorgeous new products out right now that it was very difficult for me to even choose. Also is it me or is make up packaging just becoming cuter and cuter these days? Compared to a few years ago there was still lovely packaging around but nowadays everything is looking better than ever!

Still though I have managed to narrow my pickings down and here I have popped up my favourites from different brands. 

2. Mary Kay - Baked Heart Blush

3. Nailsinc - Unicorn Face Mask

4. Miss Patisserie - Rainbow River Bath Bomb

5. Pixi - Peel And Polish 

6. Estee Lauder - Double Wear Foundation 

7. Too Faced - Hangover Setting Pray

8. Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat Glow Shot

9. Ciate - Bamboo Bronzer

10. Becca Cosmetics - Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss

I really adore these themed face masks by Nailsinc! They even have a bunny and deer one too but the unicorn one has my heart. I'm slowly starting to love the unicorn trend thats going on at the moment as well. I usually buy my face masks from Skin Food or Tony Moly which are Korean brands and they do cutesy type of masks too. 

Plus I have yet to even try the hangover primer by Too Faced but the setting spray is more ideal for  me I think because I tend to use them more. 

Also Miss Patisserie has definitely caught my eye in these passing weeks, everything I go into Boots I always have a nosey at the range. I love how they're vegan and all their products are made with natural based ingredients. They always smell amazing! I reckon they will possibly compete against Lush in the future too. They're within the same price range too so it isn't too bad. 

These are just a few things I'm craving but I would like to know what it is you currently want too! What are you lusting over this month or planning to buy? Please share!


The Prettiest Surprise! Introducing Patisserie De Bain Body Mist Sprays

It was a lovely shock when I received this adorable package from Patisserie De Bain the other day containing four of their new body mist sprays. For those who do not know Patisserie De Bain is a British brand located in Yorkshire where they creating wonderful unique bath, shower and body care products with a very Parisian bakery touch to their products. 

I have written a few other posts regarding Patisserie De Bain previously about their new hand creams and other new releases late last year for those who are curious about this brand. 

The new sprays come in the scents "Sugared Violet", "Strawberry Cupcake", "Sweet As Cherry Pie" and "Cranberries and cream". All of them smell beyond incredible too! My favourite is probably Strawberry cupcake and Sugared Violent as the Strawberry Cupcake scent is very sweet which is my preferred scent.

But the Sugared Violent reminds me of those old sweeties Parma Violents you would get in a pick n' mix as a kid! It just brings back a lot of memories - sweet old nostalgia (literally!). 

How gorgeous is that packing though? It's super cute! I love the pastel rainbow theme which links in perfectly with the products. 

As for the product itself within the bottles I find that these sprays now having used them over the weekend since receiving them.

They last probably around two-three hours in total which isn't too bad for a body mist as I do expect them to wear off quicker than a regular perfume. 

These are quite ideal after getting out the shower or just to refreshen yourself up during the day more so than anything. 

These body mists retail for £6.99 each which is an ideal price for the amount, long lasting delicious fragrance and can be purchased from the official Patisserie De Bain online store or at your local Superdrug


Love Too Faced? Check Out The New Natural Love Palette!

I am so incredibly excited to share the new "Natural Love' palette by Too Faced with you all! I was lovestruck when I first even saw a glimpse of this one over on Twitter let alone properly on the official website. It's not just beautiful but wonderful, gorgeous and extremely perfect. Especially for this season!

The colour scheme is a dream as the palette contains an overall amount of thirty eyeshadows in various neutral shades, pretty pinks and delicious darker shaders thrown in there.  There is many mattes and shimmers which I think is lovely mixture. 

As for the palette it is fairly large, cardboard and does include around several shades from previous neutral eyeshadow collections Too Faced has released but there is "new" shades included too. 

I think it is a fairly decent palette so far having using it for a handful of weeks now. I would say the palette is average at best but the brand have been slightly disappointing with their larger palette releases as of late. 

Mostly because of the formula Too Faced uses which is fairly weak in my opinion. Although it has always been thin, slightly powdery. But they are probably best used over primers for coverage and longevity I would say. 

So I would keep that in mind if you are after purchasing this palette. You mean need to pack on quite a fair bit in terms of really getting the full look you desire. Either way though I still like this palette because the shades are ideal for the everyday run, neutral and simple. 

My selected favourites are probably Heaven with a dash of Honey pot my eye lid just overlapping Heaven which is a matte shade. I add Heaven just under my brow otherwise if I apply Honey pot, instead it being a shimmer shade would only cause unwanted creases. 

I love these two paired together! They're literally just perfect for me - ideal for caramel skin if you are wondering what shades would be ideal and you're the same complexion as me. 

Also I really like to add Fairy Tale instead of Honey Pot sometimes but mostly I stick to Honey Pot as it shows up a lot more whereas Fairy Tale, being as beautiful as it is I find it is a lot weaker. So I need something heavier most of the time and I love my shade to pop on my eyes! 

Starting from the top:
  • Heaven 
  • Lace Teddy
  • Pink Cheeks
  • Poodle
  • Spotlight

  • Fairy Tale 
  • Satin Sheets
  • Kittens
  • Cutie Patootie
  • Honey Butter

  • Nudie 
  • Push up
  • Bunny Nose
  • Dear Diary
  • Honeymoon

  • Tickle Me 
  • Money Pot
  • Moonbeam
  • Coffee Date 
  • Hot & Bothered

  • Don't Settle
  • Chocolate Martini
  • Love Bug
  • Spoiled
  • Makeup & Chill

  • Fingers crossed
  • Undercover
  • Smokin
  • Night fever
  • Stiletto

The Natural Love Too Faced palette is available on the official Too Faced website here lovelies and also if you're based within the UK you can easily pick it up from Debenhams or Selfridges

So far I am really enjoying this palette though! Despite the small flaws it may contain I do still use it and will continue to be using it. 

If any of you have purchased the Too Faced Natural Love palette or are thinking about buying it then please tell me your thoughts! 

*Also just a quick note - I have noticed there is many versions of this palette on Ebay going for a cheaper price but those are mostly dupes. I would stay clear of them as they have been manufactured using all sorts of chemicals which aren't safe and could affect you resorting all kinds of terrible eye infections. It is better to be safe than sorry. 


May Through My Phone! Photo Diary

So May has been fairly stressful for me actually... basically I have been struggling getting all of my university projects completed. Making sure everything is up to scratch, presented to the best of my abilities and loosing sleep with my essays. 

I have never been a fan of writing essays - even in high school I hated it. Luckily I seemed to somehow pass everything. I am just hoping I pass this semester as smoothly as I did the first. It can be all so difficult sometimes, university isn't as easy as people like to make out it is. 

Either way though I tried my best. This past month however has had some fairly good highlights! 

Such as I was sent this gorgeous mug (and it came with sweeties mm!) by the lovely JillyJilly How cute is this?! I fell in love with this gift immediately. It is from the new collection in celebration of JillyJilly's third birthday!

I think it's amazing, all the dedication and care gone into her products is beyond believable. They're brilliant quality and I can't get enough of JillyJilly's products. 

Even her new packaging is so sweet too! I love the little polka dots and bow there for that delicate touch too! 

This lovely gift certainly did cheer me up! 

Oh and I signed up to Glossybox as well! I have always wanted to sign up to one of these subscription boxes as I have seen others do so on Instagram and blogs. 

I was stuck between either Glossbox or Treatbox but I opted for Glossybox since I prefer cosmetics rather than what Treatbox had to offer. They're both lovely with cute things to offer! 

I am happy with my order from Glossbox but however after actually receiving my items I am slightly unsure if this is something I could continue in the future. It's practically anonymous items within each box you receive monthly and I am going to be honest by saying that I do not like all of the items. 

Some I liked but others not so much due to them either leaving me with break outs such as the cleansing milk which was included in the May edition or the eyeshadow being a reddish colour. 

So I think Glossybox is a hit and miss really but I guess that goes for all of these subscription boxes at the end of the day. 

Random but I am loving these pretty pink fluffy cushions from Matalan! How adorable are these?! I have been after pink pillows for a while now and seeing these online I just threw them right into the shopping cart.

Most of the time I buy my cushions from places such as B&M and Primark, but they haven't had any pink cushions that I really liked in store at the moment... I'm extremely pleased with these pickings though!

How amazing has the weather been recently though?! This fabulous heat calls for a delicious bottle of Fentimans Rose Lemonade! Not too much since I am trying to get back in shape... my diet has improved since finishing university for the summer. Back to the gym this week! 

But I really am hoping to get away soon though, it has been years since my last holiday now and I would be totally happy with going somewhere like Cornwall even! It doesn't have to be abroad. But everywhere costs money... it's such a pain! 

As I am writing this I am literally looking at flights to Tokyo in November (praying I can get one!) and freaking out whether I should just book it... reckon I should? 


A Mini Spring Treats & Beauty Haul!

Despite the beautiful cherry blossoms outside my house have all blown away until another year of seeing it bloom once more I can't say that spring is far from over yet. 

I have been fairly busy recently! While juggling around my daily life of the university struggles with coursework, trying to maintain a social life and even find the time for Instagrammable (Is that a word now?!) photos I have not forgotten my blog. Infact I wish I could constantly blog every single day like most do but unfortunately at the moment life just gets in the way. 

However over the last couple of weeks I have picked up a few adorable little pretties here which are my absolute favourites! 

I mean who can resist cute things?  

Around a month ago I picked up the new Garnier Skin activity hydrate and soothe day cream with rose water. However I did buy it more or less on a whim simply because I was desperate for face cream really, I found after I bought this that Garnier had released other new rose water skin products too and I immediately went back for more after trying the cream out. 

So far I find that this cream has been doing me wonders especially as I have changed my skin routine up a lot. My skin is naturally more oily and this product isn't too heavy luckily enough so I find just a thin layer does the job. It's been helping me aim for clearer skin and this cream smells amazing! I love popping it on at the end of the day once my make up has all come off. It's like a bit of a treat!

For just £2.95 it's a bargain that cannot go unmissed. 

Then there is this cute little kitty trinket dish from Oliver Bonas! I always need somewhere to stash my jewellery since it's all over the place these days. 

So I thought this dish would be great to pop just near my computer where I usually take off my earrings or rings at the end of the day. That way I can't complain they go missing! 

Now I have been eyeing up the new Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer for ages and ages now until finally caving in. So far I am not disappointed at all because I do find that it is a fairly decent primer.

Truthfully, I've been using it here and there sparingly to get the right amount for that luminous effect it holds. Really though a small amount is all you need for any primer really, applying this product is easy and it's very smooth leaving you with baby soft skin which I adore. 

I have tried this product after giving my skin a good cleanse and moisturise where I did not use any foundation and my complexion was amazing. Plus how gorgeous is the substance? It's all gold and pretty with glitter! The packaging is beautiful as well. I would recommend anyone to try this particular primer if you are still searching for that 'right one'. 

Also I jumped on the Chloe Eau Sensuelle Eau De Parfum bandwagon since I kept seeing this perfume all over the place and I wanted to try it too! I have the first edition of Love Story and that is such a beautiful scent so I expected to be impressed by this fragrance too. 

It is lovely though, I can't knock it because this edition is just a elegant and with that gorgeous hint of orange blossom thrown in its scent. 

After researching I found that this fragrance contains sunny heliotrope, with a tint of vanilla which brings sweetness to the floral orange blossom. The base is apparently sandalwood adding a milky, smooth depth. 

It is a heavy scent in my opinion, it's heavy and a very romantic one at that. It stays on for hours I find and I've been complemented many a time. So I say treat yourself! 

I did also end up caving in and purchased these adorable bunny flats from ASOS

They're stunning and lovely to wear with a cute mesh top! I've only worn them once though up to now because I don't want to ruin them. They have this precious glittery pattern on the material and even little fluffy pom-poms for their tail! Super cute! 

What are your current favourites right now? Have you been treating yourself too? If so, please share!
