I'm always amazed by how quickly Gemma manages to get review posts of new products up. They're
always so in dept and honest-  The first place I look for review posts. I also love how much time
Gemma must spend replying to comments and commenting on other blogs!


I'm obsessed with Charlee's photography! All her images are beautiful. She also has a hugeee
Mac collection which i'm so jealous about.


I love checking up on all the new Lush launches and Jen's blog is the perfect place
to find out about any Lush product before you buy for yourself. I also love to browse
her massive Lush collection. It's insane.


Another I've been following for such a long time. I love the range of content on JustJulie.
I tend to be more of a beauty girl, yet find myself reading whatever she writes. Lately I've been
loving this post on how to sell your blog to brands.

Hair growth journey | Gold Crush

Sunday, 22 February 2015

After dying my hair a couple of weeks ago I've been disappointed with how it looks,
so boring both blond and short. I'm hoping the Gold Crush hair vitamins will be my
savior. I'll be taking 2 a day for the next 2 months and blogging my progress.

'GoldCrush Hair Nutrition Formula is an innovative complex vitamin that combines
 key nutrients to support optimal healthy hair and nail growth. Its unique blend of
 vitamins and minerals includes Selenium and Zinc along with complex B Vitamins 
such as Biotin, which feed and nourish your follicles helping to contribute towards 
healthy hair from the inside out.'

The two month pack comes with 2 bottles, each containing 60 capsules, 2 progress tracking
forms and, my favorite, a growth tracking shirt. The shirts cleverly designed with inch marks
on the back to quickly measure the progress of your hair. Using this I can see the longest
point of my hair is 15inchs and it's looking pretty scraggy too. I'm definitely ready to 
start the Gold Crush!

Get your 2 months supply of Gold Crush and loads of extra info on the website. 
I'll keep you updated on my progress.

Makeup Revolution Palette Collection

Wednesday, 18 February 2015

After a few months of Makeup revolution kindly sending over a few new launches
every now and then, and me not being able to resist in Superdrug, I've realised I've built up 
an abundance of their palettes. As I haven't featured a lot of them before I thought i'd put together
a collection post as it might be useful to those who are undecided about which ones they need in
there lives (if not all). So here goes:

Iconic Pro 2 

One of two just launched palettes the ionic 2 comes with 6 matte and 6 shimmer colours.
The new pro range are a little different from the rest of the palettes. They have a matte
lid instead of the usual gloss finish and come with one of Makeup Revolution new eye
shadow brushes. For just £6.99, brush included, this is another bargain product and I
can't wait to try it out more.

Matte Brights

Possibly my favorite palette is the Matte Brights, featured in my last haul post. It's full of
highlight pigmented, dramatic shades, perfect for when you want to create a bold look.
The best thing about this palette is it's price of £4!! If you want to experiment with brighter
colours but don't want to splash out on a high end product this is the perfect palette.

Give them nightmares

I remember how excited I was when this palette arrived late last year. It's the
first palette I've had that's full of purples. The shades are amazing and, having a 
mixture of mattes and shimmers this £6 palette has everything for creating a dark
smoky look.

Pro looks- Big love

Another fairly new launch is the pro looks big love. With 15 different shades
and split into 3 looks this one is so convenient! The eye shadows in each section
compliment each other so much and saves a massive jobs for useless people like myself.

Eyes like angels

My largest, and another possible favorite, palette from Makeup Rev is the 32 shade eyes
like angels palette. For just £8 I was expecting fairly low quality shadows but a good
 range of colours to play around with. The shadows are actually extremely pigmented
and great quality. If I were to recommend one palette, it'd definitely be this one.

Essential day to night

12 shadow palette perfect for those who love nudes with a pop of colour. The shades are
all shimmer/metallic a little different from a lot of their products which tend to be a

Iconic dreams

The one that can be described as the Naked palette dupe and who doesn't love a dupe?
This £4 palette containing a mixture of 12 matte and shimmer nude shades is extremely
similar to the much heavier priced Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. The shades are really
pigmented and well worth the small price tag.

So that's my entire MR eye shadow palette collection. I was going to include blush palettes
but I had far to many, so look out for a separate post. Let me know if there's any palettes I'm
missing out on because i'm thinking of placing an order soon.

Korean daily skincare rountine

Sunday, 15 February 2015

After receiving my latest Memebox, instead of writing my usual review, I decided to put
the 5 step skincare routine to the test by trialing all the products as instructed and blogging 
my results after a week. This was also a bit of self motivation as I've been pretty lazy with my
skincare recently and wanted to see if I could keep up with this routine; which I did!

In the box, and to be used in order are:

The results

After a couple of days I could clearly see the results to my skin. It looked way more hydrated,
felt smooth to touch and all around more healthy. I continued using each product once a day,
and twice with the cream for the rest of the week to amazing results. I was having massive problems
with dryness, due to the weather I think, I now have no visible dry patches and skin feels hydrated
even later on in the day. The Mojito toner smelt amazing and I loved applying it to my skin. The
renew essence was so hydrating and a little went such a long way. I was a little disappointed by the
Royal Jelly, as much as I loved applying it and it's brightening effect on my skin, the bottle doesn't seem
to contain much product in and I can't see it lasting very long at all. I found the Rice water double action
cream to be amazing! It's a much thinner forumula than I expected meaning a little goes a really long way.
It's deeply moisturising and perfect for people with skin as dry as mine. Definitely worth a repurchase. The
Tonymoly sun cream is the perfect finish for the daily routine. Sun damage is the number one course of
 aging so I think it's really important to wear it daily even though there doesn't appear to be much sun about.
Overall I loved this box, definitely my favorite yet. I'll definitely be looking out for more daily routine boxes'
from Memebox. Get yours here.

'The Hollywood glow' with Madame LaLa

Thursday, 12 February 2015

Madame Lala is a self tan brand inspired by LA designed to give that 'Hollywood glow'. It's also
 my newest tanning obsession. It's a DD tanner which (apparently, I'd never heard of it before) 
means do all; In this case hydrating and detoxing, and  ensuring a long lasting natural tan 
glowing skin. Basically it's a magic tan. I was definitely expecting a lot when I tried this for the
first time and didn't come out disappointed.

I was pleased to see it's a moose formula as I've found they apply to the skin effortlessly, as does
this. The tan dried and developed quickly and I was left with a streak-free, slightly-darker-than-I
-expected, cellulite-covering, glowing tan! The brand offers a lighter version of this product for
those of you that don't fancy this shade (although I personally love it). They can both be found
here for £36.
