A Little Trip To London

I've never properly been to London before, which is a little strange considering it's our capital city! I've always been dying to visit the shops on Oxford street, so imagine my excitement when I was added to the guest list for the Makeup Revolution 3rd Birthday Party, taking place in central London last Thursday.

My Perfume Collection & Fragrance Wish List

Happy National Fragrance Day! When it comes to perfume, I'm a true girly girl who's obsessed with sweet floral and citrus scents. My high-end perfume collection has been growing slowly but steadily since December when I received La Vie Est Belle for Christmas, but I've always had a love for fragrance since my early teens when I purchased my first grown-up perfume, Taylor Swift's 'Wonderstruck', and the rest is history.

Korean Skincare Review: Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest Collagen Jella Pack Mask

Korean beauty and skincare brands are everywhere right now, meaning I just had to pick some up when I spotted several products in TK Maxx last weekend. I've never tried any Asian beauty products before and I didn't quite know what brands were great and which to avoid, however I had read reviews of the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell Pore mask, so I knew this was a brand with quite a large following and a growing 'blogger fave' status. 

Review: Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose & Shea Butter Body Repair Cream

Originally, I had intended this post to be based on creating seductively soft skin for Valentine's day. I was planning an evening of pampering before the big day, incorporating this gorgeous body cream into the routine, when instead I was hit with a 3-week-long bout of glandular fever, and was laid up in bed throughout the entire Valentine's season. Sucks to be me, right? Luckily, I instead took this as an opportunity to incorporate Dr Botanicals into my daily self-care routine, and I'm so glad I did.

Review: LUSH Chocolate Lip Scrub

Last Sunday I was incredibly lucky enough to go along to the LUSH Spring & Easter event at LUSH Meadowhall. I had a great time meeting up with other bloggers, such as the lovely Debra-Bow (you can watch her LUSH vlog here!) and playing with the new products from the Easter and Mother's Day ranges.

One of LUSH's newest products is the Chocolate Lip Scrub, which I was totally ecstatic to receive in my goodie bag from the event, almost a full week ahead of the official release date.

Guerlain 'Mon Guerlain' Perfume Launch

To me, blogging is so much more than just a hobby. It's a way of discovering beauty cultures and immersing myself in lifestyles I never thought I would belong to until now. Through blogging I have had some amazing opportunities to discover high-end brands, and so being invited to the Guerlain perfume launch was nothing short of amazing.

3 Essie Polishes Perfect For Spring

Spring pastels are my absolute favourite shades, so I couldn't resist picking up these three beautiful Essie polishes when I spotted them in TK Maxx last week. After a long dreary Winter, I'm super excited to start seeing the first glimpses of Spring with daffodils and lighter evenings, and these polishes are absolutely perfect to welcome in the coming season whilst adding a touch of colour to any look.
