New In From Girls With Attitude, Boujee Blush Palette | Review

If you've ever scrolled through my blog, you will see that there are a lot of posts and reviews from the brand Girls With Attitude and it would come as no surprise to you that they are one of my favourite online brands. I've been one of their biggest fans for a few years now and every time a new product is released I get way too excited because when it comes to branding and the quality of products Girls With Attitude have never ever let me down. A few weeks ago the first ever GWA blush palette came on the scene and I've been using it everyday since, so I thought it would be perfect to get my full review up of the gorgeous Boujee Palette.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream In Shabby Chic | My New Favourite Lipstick

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream In Shabby Chic

When it comes to lipstick choices, you guys know that matte liquid lipsticks get my heart fluttering every single time, I love them! I just love how easy they are to wear and that one application will last for hours and hours. I'm the kind of girl who doesn't like to reapply her lipstick more than twice a day, which is why this kind of formula works best for me. Not to mention the fact that I love the way a matte lip looks on, I much prefer it to gloss. For the longest of time, it felt that all I ever did way buy lipstick and as I have a pretty large selection of liquid matte lipsticks to choose from I decided that I needed a break from buying anymore, that is until recently. I was in Boots the other week and they had 3 for 2 across all their high street makeup brands (my favourite kind of deal). For my free item I decided to pick up a new liquid matte lipstick and treated myself to one of the new(ish) Matte Me Lip Creams from Sleek. I've seen a lot of bloggers rave about these lipsticks on Instagram, so after doing the usual selection of swatches up my arm, I took the shade 'Shabby Chic' home with me and I am obsessed. I think I have found my new favourite liquid lipstick formula and feel that I have a duty to tell you all about it.

My Current Obsession - Primark Nudes Matte Eye Cream's | Review

Primark Nudes Matte Cream Eyeshadows | Review

It had been quite some time since I popped into my local Primark, but last week I decided to quickly dash in on the last ten minutes of my lunch break and as usual didn't come away empty handed. Does anyone actually ever set foot into Primark and walk away with nothing? I'd love to know because its something that never happens to me. My main reason for popping in on a whim was to pick up some more of their false nails because I'm obsessed and when it comes to falsies Primark do the best ones. Right by the nails section I saw a little stand dedicated to their new Nudes makeup range. I saw quite a few people on Instagram positing on their stories about this collection a few weeks ago, but had completely forgotten about it, so I was quite excited when I saw the collection and just knew that I had to pick something up. As I was in a rush, I didn't have the time I would have liked to have a proper browse and do some much needed swatches, but I did decide that I needed to try the Nude Matte Eye Creams and as they only cost £2.00 each, it would have been rude not too. I have to say I was really impressed, so much so that I thought I would share my first impressions of them with you all.

Five Products From Style Freedom You Need To Try

It's been a long time since I typed up a haircare post on my blog, that's because I'm guilty; Over the last few months I've seriously neglected my hair, worn it in basic styles such as messy buns or sorted it with the hair straighteners. Needless to say, my hair has been feeling pretty poor and not in the best condition so I decided that enough was enough and introduced some new haircare and styling products into my routine. I don't know about anyone else but really struggle with knowing what haircare brands to choose from, especially when they don't have the cheapest of price tags, I feel like you have to take a bit of a gamble and hope that whichever product you choose works its magic for you. Since having Archie, I find that a lot of my spare money goes on him and so not wanting to spend too much on haircare I chose the brand Style Freedom which is exclusively sold at Superdrug and I've been so impressed. Not only are the products I've tried amazing, but they won't break the bank with the most expensive item costing only £7.99. I thought I'd give you a little run down of all the Style Freedom products I've been trying as I think it will be helpful for any of you who are like me and wanting to give your hair a little more TLC.

My Top Three High End Eyeshadow Palette's That Are Perfect For Spring

Spring is finally in the air and I couldn't be more happier! I love this time of year and it feels lovely to get outside again and not have to wear a million layers just to keep myself warm. You know that spring is almost hear when you see the daffodils starting to sprout, yesterday on my way to pick Archie up from Nursery, I even took my coat off because the sun was shining down on me and it felt wonderful. One thing that I really love with the change of the seasons, is changing up my makeup bag, for the last couple of months I've been on a beauty spending ban (the pain and struggle is real) and I've been shopping my current makeup stash. Although theres no rules as to what makeup palette you wear, I think some of my makeup is more seasonal, especially with the likes of eyeshadow and lipstick. So I had a good rummage through my eyeshadow palettes (theres a few to get through) and I picked out my top three high end ones which I think will be perfect for spring. All three are very different, but I love them all equally. So if you need a bit of inspiration for your spring makeup bag, keep on reading.

Five Makeup Items That Give Me That Instant Pick Me Up

I remember the days before becoming a mum, I used to enjoy and spend a good hour doing my makeup every morning. Now I know this sounds excessive and a little bit over the top, but I enjoy doing my makeup; Nothing beats the feeling of getting a new eyeshadow palette and having a good play around with the shades and creating new and different looks. This routine that I used to have set me up for the day and I love the confidence good makeup can give me. Don't get me wrong I'm all about the natural look too and I don't need makeup on to leave the house, but if I'm honest I prefer wearing it and it makes me feel a lot better about myself. Fast forward two years and I barely get five minutes to do my makeup, if you have a toddler you will know that it is no easy task. I do miss my eyeshadows (they only come out at the weekends or special occasions) and although I don't spend anywhere near as much time on my makeup, I still want to wear it and I still want that instant pick me up that I get whenever I apply it. So today I thought I'd share my top five makeup items that I use every morning and these are the staples that I couldn't live without and the ones that really make me feel good about myself.
