Eco-friendly Brushes

Lately I've had my eyes on the Zoeva brush set at around 60 Euros even though you get between 6 to 12 brushes (depending of the set you choose) I still feel it was a lot of money (click here for Zoeva brushes sets if you are interested). Also I didn't want to spend an average of £10/20 on each Real Techniques brush so I decided to look elsewhere. For me brushes are not my number one priority in my make-up bag. As I am not a make-up artist I'd rather spend my money on cosmetics rather than brushes, just my personal view.

Vanilla Dee-Lite by Lush review

It is odd for me to think that a few years ago I had no interest what so ever in Lush. For me it was just a shop that pretty much only sold bars of soap! I had no interested in soap before so I never really entered their shop. Well that was until about 6 months ago (I know I swear I wasn't leaving in a cave before then) I finally discovered that Lush was offering much, much more than soap. And the obsession began after reading many blog posts or YouTube videos about their products. I love their products especially bath bombs, but lately I decided to try one of their body lotions for the first time, I chose Vanilla Dee-Lite body lotion.

Battle of the beauty boxes

This February I didn't get one, not two but three beauty boxes. So I thought what a perfect time to do a comparison of each, don't you think so? I looked at the content, packaging, value for money etc. So the 3 boxes are : Glossybox, My Little Box and Birchbox.

The Passionate One | St Valentine's Special

Red is the colour of love and passion, what a perfect colour to talk about on St Valentine's day. Don't worry do not go away if your heart hasn't been taken yet, this is not a post about about the best place to eat or go with your lover. No, today is all about the red lipstick, the passionate one, you know the one I mean,  the one that fits every girls lips.

My latest beauty acquisition

Here are a few of my latest beauty purchases. I don't know why but right now I am into palettes, hi-lighters and nude lipsticks. Back in November and December last year, I was into dark plum lipstick shades, I guess my mood changed with the weather! Right now I seem to just want to focus more on my eyes, highlighting or contouring my face and adding a soft shade on my lips if that makes sense?

Soap & Glory haul

Lately I couldn't resit getting my hands on some Soap & Glory products, and when I say to 'get my hand on some', well I don't do that by half! Did I mention that I can't just stop smelling them like.... ALL the time! What does Soap & Glory put in them? Amazing smelling stuff that's for sure, and not only do they smell divine, the packaging is really cute and I actually really love using them. My top 3 favourites are the Glad Hair Day shampoo, The Righteous Butter, and the Body Buff scrub which I actually used more on my face, maybe I shouldn't but hey that's me for you!
Along with these I also got the Endless Glove hand cream, the Foam Call body wash and last but not least the Clean on me body wash.
Also at the moment BOOTS are doing 3 for the price of 2 (cheapest free) on all Soap & Glory products.

A few of my favourite things #1

This is my first post of this kind. I just gathered here few things beauty and non-beauty that I have really enjoy using through out December and January. 


I can't actually believe that January is already gone as not along ago we were anticipating Christmas and boom!!!! December was gone and so January and we are now in the full start of this new year.
Autumn and Winter are pretty much my two favourites seasons and my items represented here actually kind of reflect this; from reading books, hot chocolate mug, warm nail polish colours, blog writing etc.
