Victoria Secret: Spray Collection

First of all, I would like to apologise for those of you that have been visiting but haven't had a post to read for the past 4 weeks. I have been busy with college, exam prep and then the actual exam but everything is all complete now so I have time to write and upload again.

I'm sure you have seen the 'What Instagram Made Me Buy' trend that has been going round. One thing that Instagram made me buy was the Victoria Secret body mists and sprays. It started with the fragrance mists in: Coconut Passion (250ml) and Pure Seduction (250ml). I then saw the smaller mists that are the same scents as the perfumes. These are much more handbag friendly (75ml) so over 2 visits I picked up 2 of the Scandalous mists and an Intense mist. I then bought a rollerball in the scent Scandalous Dare (7ml).

I love all of the scents and wear them on a regular basis. I am usually wearing the body mists in Scandalous and Intense the most as it is normally in my bag or at the front of my perfumes. I would highly recommend buying them as the scent lasts for a decent amount of time. 

Despite it being an Instagram influence purchase, I am so glad I fell for it but the problem now it knowing when enough is enough and resisting the temptation to buy more scents.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed

Happy Easter 2017!

I hope you all have a lovely Easter Sunday with your family. Even if you aren't religious (like me), it is always a great time to see and spend time with family. A great way to spend some quality time could involve a bit of baking, games or if you're feeling a bit of a big kid, maybe even an Easter egg hunt.

I might make some Easter nests with cornflakes, chocolate and some mini eggs as a little treat. The great thing about these is that they are quick and can even be made gluten free using gluten free cornflakes. This means that a certain someone doesn't have to miss out.

Happy Easter 2017!

Victoria Secret Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain

I'm sure near enough every girl has one of the Victoria Secret Body Mists. When I saw the makeup bits they had, I had to try the lip creams. Many people at the moment are loving matte lip look but I find that some can be really drying on my lips and hate the feeling. 

However, with the VS ones, they are velvet so do not dry your lips out but still sort of look matte. I find this much better as they last longer than a normal lipstick but aren't drying like completely matte liquid lipsticks.

Another bonus is that the VS ones are also a stain so wear evenly on the lips. This allows you to add a  lip balm when the lip cream has worn off and still look as if you have something more pigmented. The lip creams are really pigmented and easy to apply. I have the shades Desire (Red), Tempting (Coral) and Adored (Light Nude Pink).

I would highly recommend these lip products!

Have you tried anything from the Victoria Secret Beauty Line?

Happy Mother's Day!

If you live in the UK, you will know that today is Mother's Day. A day to celebrate and thank Mum's for everything that they do for us. If you haven't already got your Mum something, consider this as a prompt and go now. (Flowers and a card always go down a treat!)

I really appreciate everything that my Mum does for me and can't thank her enough for always being there for me. She will always put me and my brother before anything and will always be there to support us both.

I just want to say, Happy Mother's Day to all those Mum's out there, you're amazing and thanks for everything that you do for us!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed,

MAC Amber X9 Palette

Sorry about the lack of posts recently, I have been fairly busy with college work and that has taken priority obviously. However, I wanted to still try and be frequent with my posts so have upload this week.

I was bought this palette as a Christmas present of a family friend. I love the idea that you get a variety of different nude shades within the palette and it is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. As it says, you get 9 shades which are both matte and shimmer so have a good variety and it handy if you are travelling as they are all together and comes in a sturdy plastic case. The only thing that annoys me with MAC eyeshadows is that fact they take a while to get a good pay off in colour. It seems as the top of the shadow has a protective layer within the shadow. But once they have been used a couple of times, they are fine. (The pay off isn't as good as Makeup Geek shadows and they are cheaper than MAC!)

I have been using the top right (pinkish) shade all over my lid and the middle right shade (light brown) in the crease to create a neutral matte eye look. It isn't obvious I have eyeshadow on but can tell a little if you know what I mean?

However, this is a great palette for starting out in makeup and want to experiment a little  but still keeping with the nude/neutral look so it isn't too intense. It is £25 and the shadows are smaller than the individual pans so something the think about.

Again, sorry about the lack of posts recently, everything will be back to normal!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed,
