We all know that having a dog is like having your own furry baby and they are without a doubt, a huge part of your family so of course you have to celebrate their birthday too! While Ollie's birthday isn't until August, Lily's Kitchen very kindly sent him their new Birthday Surprise gift set, which is such a good idea and Ollie has definitely enjoyed it!

My Everyday Makeup Routine


To me, everyday makeup should be easy and quick to do using as few products as possible while still be able to achieve the desired, but simple look. For everyday, I personally use as little as possible but still cover up/bring out the areas of my face I want, so here is how I do my makeup in my very first Youtube video!

Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Divine Lips


A girl can never have too many lipsticks. With so many different shades, formulas and brands to choose from, no two are ever going to be exact my the same. A lot of you (especially if you follow me on Twitter/Instagram) will know that I love lipsticks and own a lot but I still buy more! The Joan Collins lipsticks have been all over social media and they very kindly sent me two gorgeous shades to try out.

Kiss Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes


Hand's up if you've heard about mink lashes or have seen them using in tutorials?! I know I have but the one thing about a lot of them, is that they use real mink. That is why Kiss have now started to sell FAUX mink lashes which are a lot more humane while still feeling and looking luxurious and fluttery.

Pixi X Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse


Double cleansing is something I have been doing for a few years, way before it came popular so I was so excited when I first heard that Pixi were bringing out this Double Cleanse product in collaboration with skincare expert blogger Caroline Hirons! This was included in the amazing gift I received from Pixi and is the second product featured from it on my blog - the first was on Aspyn Ovard's highlighters and you all you lovely lot seemed to love that.

The Gift Of A Star


When it comes to buying gifts for people, I normally have a pretty good idea of what to get them, but sometimes you have that one person who is impossible to buy for but you still have to get them something, even though they probably already have everything! This is where Star Name Registry come in with one of the most unique and special gifts you could possibly buy.

#GetFruity With Asda & nspa Beauty


Spring and Summer is all about fresh and fruity scents, so why not include them in your bath and/or shower? Honestly, this is the scent I normally go for anyway as I find it relaxing, but it is so hard to find products that are fruity without being over sweet and sickly. However, I may how found the answer in Asda as they now exclusively stock nspa Beauty which have amazing spa like products in a range of different and amazing scents!

XIP Professional


I'm the first to admit that contouring is one makeup 'trend' that I still can't completely do/pull off, mainly the darker contour shade as it always seems to go wrong! Saying that, it may be that I haven't found the right shade that works for my skin tone as I am quite pale, so having a palette that has a few different choices is exactly what I need. My contouring fairy godmother has come in the form of XIP Professional and their amazing palettes!

Velvet Love With Farfetch


One fabric that is still hugely on trend (and was all over the catwalks!) is velvet and while I wasn't originally a fan, it has definitely grown on me! Velvet, when worn well, always looks very regal and expensive, especially when it bold shades such as red, green and black which is just a classic colour in any fabric. After reading Farfetch's Style Guide, I was so inspired by their feature on velvet, I just had to create this post!

Bioderma Sebium Skincare


When I fall in love with something, I fall hard and in this case, it's with skincare products! If you are one of my regular readers you will have no doubt guessed that by now but you seem to enjoy them, so here is another. I was very kindly sent 2 products from the popular French brand Bioderma, which is now available in the UK. I was actually looking at these in Boots the day before they arrived!

L'Oreal Infallible Paint Collection


L'Oreal is one brand I go back to time and time again as their products are not only amazing, but their products seem to suit my skin rather than cause breakouts - this especially goes for their foundations! A while ago, they released their 'paint' collection which also links in with their 'infallible' range, so as you can guess, I've had these photos for a while and completely forgot about them until I was having a sort through!

Beauty Sleep With skinChemists


We all get told that in our 20's we should be developing and finding our perfect skincare routine and start thinking about using anti aging products too. I admit, I still haven't found the perfect products for my skin, but I have been on the lookout for a night cream - we all need that 'beauty' sleep right?! Therefore, I was so happy when skinChemists contacted me about trying out their Pro 5 Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream * which is exactly what I had been looking for! They are even offering an amazing discount to anyone who reads the post!

Life Lessons From Owning A Horse


When I tell people I own a horse, there is generally a mixed reaction. Some think I'm just a rich, stuck up b****h (I'm really, honestly not at all!) or they want to know when they can come and see her - two complete opposite reactions. What a lot of people don't realise are the life lessons you gain from owning and being around horses - things which stay with you forever and you can put into other areas of your life.

Going Super Green With Sukin


As I said in my last skincare post, my everyday skincare routine is something I am really working on nailing this year, so of course I need to try different products and brands to see what will work the best. The majority of products I've been trying - and that seem to work - have been completely natural and this is where Sukin Super Greens range fits in!

Why You Need A Pair Of Pointed Shoes


One trend that also incorporates pretty much every other trend in fashion - colours, embroidery, lengths, boots, kitten heels - pretty much any word you can use to describe shoes - is the pointed toe trend. There are so many amazing shoes on both the high street and luxury brands now that have a pointed toe that you are sure to find some that you absolutely adore!

Going Wireless With Lee Stafford + GIVEAWAY!


Although I love using my straighteners, curlers and obviously hairdryer the long, salon length wires can be so unmanageable at times, from getting knotted up to just getting in the way - we all know the feeling, right girls! So, can you imagine my excitement when Lee Stafford's cordless straighteners * dropped through my letterbox?

Threads Beauty False Eyelashes


The one beauty 'thing' I still can't get the hang off is false lashes and to try and conquer them, I like trying different brands to see if I can find ones that are easier to apply. Next up on my 'to try' list are from Threads Beauty, a brand which does brow threading and nails and also sells a huge range of false lashes from which they very kindly send me two pairs to try out.

Pixi X Aspynovard


If you are a regular read of my blog or follow me over on Instagram, you will know that I'm a huge loved of Pixi Beauty and have quite the collection of their products. You will have also seen this image which shows the most amazing PR gift I received from them (honestly, I'm still not over it!) with all their new products in collaborations with some amazing beauty creators. As there is such a lot, I though I would do a more detailed post on each of the collaboration - first up Aspyn Ovard!

Technic Cosmetics


Technic Cosmetics isn't a brand you hear a lot about, but I get the feeling you soon will be! Having used (and loved) one of their highlighting palettes for a while now, I was thrilled to receive some of the products from their new range and they have really upped their game. These products are well in good contention with the more well know drugstore brands as they are amazingly good quality for the price.

Mother's Day With Prestige Flowers


The one thing I always buy for my mum on Mother's Day/her birthday/Christmas/any time really, is a big,  beautiful bouquet of flowers. The thing is, she loves them every time and they always look different while still including some of her favourites - oh and super colourful too - so I don't think she ever gets bored of receiving them, I hope anyway! Prestige Flowers got in contact with me and asked if I would like one of their bouquets, so of course I said yes!

Dolly's Mixtures Shower Gels | Asda Beauty


After a long day, particularly when it's cold and wet outside, there is nothing I love more than a good bath with gorgeously scented products. While I normally go for quite a citrusy scented bubble bar, Asda Beauty kindly sent me two of their new shower gel (that can also be used in the bath) to try out from their new range.

Bohemian Chic Minerals


One thing I love finding from new beauty brands, is lipstick and I'm the first to admit that I have way too many, but still buy more -ooops! Since one of my friends became vegan, I find that I tend to notice what is in things more and that included cosmetics - did you know that a lot of the most popular brands are cruelty free? This mainly stand for the more international brands as they can't be sold in some countries without having being tested on animals. When Bohemian Chic Minerals * asked me if I would like to try out one of their lipsticks, oh course I said yes!

Eylure Brow Range


We all know that brows are still a huge trend, as it finding new products to give you 'the rows of dream' or maybe just instagram right?! I don't know about you, but I never knew Eylure did brow products until they dropped through my letterbox - I think this is mainly down to them being more widely know for their amazing false lashes.

Mindfulness - What Actually Is It?


One term that is always floating around is mindfulness and it's not just in blogs and on social media, but in day-to-day life, books and traditional media, but what actually is it? I honestly wasn't too sure of the full meaning or completely understood it until recently, so if you are in the same boat, I hope this post helps!

Gingham Edit


One print that seems to be everywhere, from the catwalks to the high street, is gingham - it has become a huge trend and is on everything from shirts to chokers, so there is definitely something for everyone. I have to say, it's never been a print I have ever headed for, but with some many amazing pieces, I'm so excited to style it!

No Milk Smoothie Bowl


The one healthy 'meal' that is constantly floating around on social media are smoothie bowls. Not only are they literally packed with fruit and healthy goodness, they can be totally unique to you and your tastes - that includes not using any type of milk if it is something (like me) that you don't like.

Who doesn't love finding a new and amazing cosmetics brand?! I know I certainly do and this one is no exception. Mary Kay is an American brand founded in 1963 by Mary Kay Ash who left her job to pursue her dream of helping women to achieve success independently. This has helped Mary Kay to become a global direct seller of cosmetics and skincare products with over 3 million consultants worldwide. I was very kindly sent a few of their cosmetics to try out, along with some skincare which will be in a future post.

#NewYearNewYou plus Givaway!


I admit, I'm not normally one for making New Years resolutions or trying to change anything just because it's the 1st day of a new year. However, being asked if I would like to start the New Year by watching films is something I'm pretty sure I can commit to! I chose to watch the comedy films, mainly because I don't tend to watch them all that much and I have never seen any of these ones before.

Affordable Fashion With Lesara


With the fashion trends ever changing, it can be expensive to keep up with, especially if you want the latest pieces as soon as they are released. Lesara is not only the perfect site for affordable fashion but also it brings you the latest pieces in as little as 10 days after they become a trend. Is there anything quicker than that?!

Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencils


The one makeup product that I kind of have an obsession with buying, are lip products and it's safe to say, I'm now getting quite a collection! Matte formulas are still high on my 'love' list, but a new love of mine is pencil lip products and no, I don't mean a lip liner! There are so many jumbo lip products on the market, but the Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencils are exactly what I want and with a good range of shades, there is something for everyone.

Glow Into 2017 With Pixi by Petra


In the winter months, the combining of the harsh weather and having indoor heating on pretty much all the time, your skin can really suffer and the most common side effects are dryness and the dreaded dullness. We all know how amazing Pixi by Petra skincare - or skin treats - are, so you can imagine my excitement when their products for glowing skin arrive at my house, or should I say, my skin appreciated it even more!
