I am a huge fan of lip oils and I am so happy to see one of my favourite budget brands release their own! Barry M have launched so many new products recently and these two lip oils were part of that incredible line up. I have been obsessed with these and now favour them over my high end lip oils - yay for saving money!

MaskerAide Pre Party Prep Sheet Mask

I have been wanting to try out the MaskerAide sheet masks for a while now as I have always heard good things. I love using face masks and I haven't too many sheet masks which made me want to try these out even more. The MaskerAide masks are on the affordable side and they have a few different ones available and I have tried out the Pre Party Prep Mask.

Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Collection

I have had the opportunity to finally try some Elizabeth Arden makeup and I can't believe it has taken me to long as I am so impressed! I have tried out a few of their skincare products and loved the eight hour cream like everyone else. This is the Sunset Bronze collection for Summer 2016 and it is full of gorgeous makeup.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

I have had these on my wishlist for the longest time so when I placed a slightly big order with Feel Unique last month I knew I wanted to try these First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads. I had heard nothing but amazing things about these but I must admit, I haven't been all that impressed with them and feel like I have wasted £12 when I could have just purchased a high street alternative and they would have done a better job.

Makeup Revolution Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner

I am a brush cleaning fanatic, I make sure I wash all of my brushes once a week as I cannot stand thinking about the germs and makeup residue sitting in them, then using them on my face. Makeup Revolution are my favourite budget makeup brand and I have been really enjoying the brush cleaning products recently. I posted a review of the Solid Brush Cleaner recently (link here) and I have been enjoying using the Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner too.

Holy Grail Makeup Products

There aren't may makeup products that I use every day without fail but these are the chosen ones! I don't think I could ever be without this selection of products and I always find myself going back to them even when I try to use different and newer things. If you haven't even tried these out, add them to your beauty wish list asap!

Getting Your Underarms Summer Ready with Dove

SPONSORED POST

Now that the sun is finally making an appearance in England, its time to get your skin Summer ready, in particular - your underarms. I will be the first to admit that I don't take good enough care of mine and I always forget to moisturise them and that is why I use Dove  products.

I have been trying to build my eyeshadow collection and this palette is perfect to have in your makeup collection as it had an incredible 48 shades, you will never run out of looks to create with this!

Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner

Recently I had heard such great things about the Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner and I was excited to see what all the fuss was about! I really like trying out new toners as they can make a huge difference to your skin and I am happy to report all good things about this one!

L'Oreal Magic Retouch

I have been dying my hair L'Oreal Natural Darkest Brown for six years now and when you have almost blonde hair naturally you get some pretty ugly roots! I try to touch my colour every two months or as long as I can possibly leave it but my roots always drive me mad. I had been using black eyeshadow to try and cover up my roots and while it did the job fine, it wasn't all that long lasting so when I saw the L'Oreal Magic Retouch I couldn't wait to try it out!

Top Three Skincare Products

Skincare products can be very hit or miss with my skin as I find it a struggle to find the perfect combination of products that are going to keep my acne at bay while keeping my skin extra hydrated as in some areas it is very dry. These three products are holy grails in my collection and have changed my skin for the better so please brands, never discontinue them!

Current Favourite Scents

With it finally being Spring I decided to switch up my scents and use up some of my collection. I like to change between body sprays and perfumes depending on my mood. I prefer to use body sprays for work because I don't like wasting expensive perfumes on going to work - anybody else do this?! These are my four favourite scents that I know I will be repurchasing when I get low on them.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

I have been on a huge Urban Decay kick recently and brought few a few things from them. One of the things I was most excited to get my hands on was the Naked Skin Concealer. I have heard nothing but great things about this concealer for using it conceal and brighten the under eyes so I finally decided it was time to order it and I haven't looked back since - goodbye dark circles!

KIKO Limited Edition Summer Trend Collection

I have fallen completely in love with this limited edition collection from KIKO, just look at that gorgeous packaging for starters! KIKO are an affordable makeup brand which I have tried a couple of things from in the past and I have always been impressed so I couldn't wait to start using the Summer Trend Collection products! The easiest way to buy KIKO products is online but they do have stores around the UK, I spotted one in the Intu Lakeside Shopping Centre if you are Essex based!

Budget Base Must Haves

You might have seen recently that I posted my everyday base must haves (link here to read that post) and I mentioned that I wanted to find some good products on a budget. I have finally found them and I have found myself using them over some of my luxury items. There are so many great brands on the high street with products which sould have much higher price tags but I am not complaining!

Yankee Candle Sea Salt & Sage

This is a scent I thought I would never purchase. Everybody seems to love this scent but I didn't think I would like it as a only really like vanilla or fruity scents. I spotted it when I was at the Zoo of all places, gave it a quick sniff and it came home with me and it has become one of my new favourite scents! This scent is part of the new Yankee Candle Riviera Escape collection.

Makeup Revolution Solid Brush Cleaner

I am one of those odd people who actually likes washing their brushes! I love knowing that I have got rid of all of the makeup residue and that there is no more dirt in them and what I love even more is using them when they are newly clean. I try to wash my brushes every Sunday and I love solid brush cleaners but they tend to be a little more expensive but I am so happy that Makeup Revolution have released a Solid Brush Cleaner!

New on the High Street #1

There are so many new beauty releases at the moment that I had to share a couple of my favourites! Barry M have so many exciting new products which is just making me want to spend all of my money but I was trying to be on a spending ban but I don't think that is going to be happening anymore! Here are a couple of my favourite new releases which I know I am going to be purchasing as soon as I enter Boots and Superdrug next!

Yankee Candle Strawberry Lemon Ice

I had been wanting this scent ever since I heard it was going to be one of the special appearances in the UK but I didn't want to buy the jar before giving it a sniff first. I had recently joined a Facebook page for buying and selling candles and spotted a lady with a huge range of US exclusive wax melts for sale so I brought some and I have been obsessed with this scent - I need to get back ups!!

The Body Oil the Kardashians Use // Bio-Oil Review

If the Kardashians are using Bio Oil, so will I! I love the Kardashians and I am always interested in finding out their beauty secrets. Kim, Khloe and Kylie have all said either in interviews or on Snapchat that they swear my Bio Oil and use it everyday. I have been putting it to the test for the past couple of weeks to see if I can get my skin looking great for the upcoming Summer.

Sleek Candy Tint Balm in Marshmallow

I have been trying out lots of products from Sleek recently and I have been obsessed with this product! I love balms for my lips, especially when they give a hint of colour as my lips tend to be very dry so I need all the hydration I can get! I have fallen in love with this lip product and have a few of the other shades on my shopping list for next time I go to Boots!

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I have had the Smoky palette for a couple of months now but I finally decided that I had to have the Naked 3 Palette from Urban Decay in my collection. It wasn't until last year that I actually started wearing eyeshadow daily and since then I have been trying to grow my collection. The Urban Decay Naked palettes are a must have in anyones makeup collection and definitely worth the investment.

Zoeva Rose Golden Vol.3 Brush Set

Pretty much the only brand of makeup brushes I use is Zoeva. I use the odd few from a couple of other brands but 98% of the brushes I use every single day are Zoeva. They are affordable, even with the price increase, the brushes from the brand are super soft and made extremely well. I have always loved the Rose Gold edition brushes and I have fallen head over heels in love with the Rose Golden Volume 3 Brush Set.

Staying Motivated & Organised with Blogging

I have been blogging for three years now pretty much every single day and there have definitely been times when I have lost all motivation to sit and write a blog post. At the beginning of this year I found myself blogging for the sake of blogging so I didn't miss a day and I really wasn't putting any effort into my posts. I finally decided that something had to change if I wanted to continue blogging and enjoying it so I made some changes and I couldn't have been happier. Now I can't stop blogging and have never enjoyed it more - I cant get enough. These are the things that I find help me stay organised and motivated with blogging...
