Beauty and Lifestyle Blog

Recently I've been buying myself a lot of new beauty products which is not the best for my bank account but I'm really happy with my purchases.
The other week Boots had an offer on Simple products where most of them were 50% off so I couldn't resist buying a couple of items. I picked up the Simple Illuminating Radiance Cream (£3.29) and the Revitalising Eye Roll (£2.59). I also bought a few items from a blog sale and the lovely Georgie also sent me the Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream (£13.50)

I also popped into Boots and they were offering 2 Seventeen products for £8 so I couldn't resist picking up the Define and Conquer Contour Kit (£5.99) which I've been dying to try. I also had to pick up a backup of my all time favourite concealer (big statement, I know), the Stay Time Concealer (£4.49).
Revlon also had a 2 for £10 offer on so I couldn't resist picking up the Lash Potion Mascara (£9.99), but in the waterproof version.

In Georgie's blog sale I also bought the Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon (£7.99) in 07 Proudly Naked and once again Georgie was lovely and sent me a Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector (£18 full size) which is gorgeous and I've been wearing a lot. 
Along with the mascara, I picked up Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick (£7.99) in Rose which is quickly becoming my all time favourite pink lipstick.

I'm really happy with all my purchases and I'll be writing full reviews of the products mentioned above when I'm back from my holiday in a couple of weeks so look out for those.

Have you purchased any new beauty items recently?


This post is a little delayed and I apologise for that. As you read this I'll be on my way to the airport to fly to Turkey and have 2 weeks relaxing. This past week has been a little stressful and full of anxiety for me, but that's because I'm nervous about flying. I did plan to do holiday related posts but I couldn't bring myself to do them, damn anxiety. 
I hope you're all having a lovely week and I do still have posts scheduled for these coming week so I'll still be posting! I also plan to treat myself to a few bits in duty free as well, hello MAC lipsticks! 

What are your plans for this coming week?

Today I'm off on holiday for 2 weeks! I never ever go abroad (I've been once before in my life, hence the photos above) and I'm going to Turkey. As I'm writing this I'm petrified of flying as I hate take off! I realistically know I'll be fine and in a couple of days I'll be sunbathing on a beach (whilst smothered in factor 50 - shout out to all us pale girls!!).

So I do have some posts scheduled for these next two weeks and I have more posts in mind for what I'd like to blog about when I'm back! I hope you all have a wonderful 2 weeks and I'm looking forward to catching up on blogs when I'm back.

Speak to you all in 2 weeks!!

This weeks post is a little late so sorry for that but I've been super busy as I go on holiday on Tuesday! I'm very happy with this weeks slimming world progress as I'll explain in a second.

Weightloss | I lost 3lbs this week, which means 11lbs in total. Although I'm very pleased with that in itself, it's even better because I'm at my target weight, well technically anyway. Basically I set my target weight when I first started SW and now I've reached it I want to change it to a weight that's a little lower, but only by 3lbs. This is purely because I want to have lost 1stone in total.

Plan for next week | Speak to my consultant and let her know that I want to change my target weight. In all honesty, I wont be on plan for the next two weeks as I'm going to be on holiday and I never go abroad so I'm going to treat myself. I'll try and make some SW friendly choices, but I'm preparing for a gain and hopefully I won't gain the 11lbs I've lost.

If you're following SW, how was your week? I hope it went well for you!

Considering I go back to uni in a month I've been spending a lot of time looking at getting a few bits to update my room. The other week I did this wishlist with a few items but today I'm focusing on what Primark has to offer. 

Hanging Heart £1// Pink Candle £2.50  // Earl Grey Tea Light Holder £2.50
Green Supersoft Throw £5 // Fairy Lights £6 

Are you a fan of Primark's homeware range?


This week I've been housesitting for friends and as you may have seen in last weeks post they have the most adorable puppy, and also the beautiful cat (Pawsy) pictured above. It's been really fun house sitting although I have been going back to my parents for all my meals! 
Later on today is my friends BBQ before she leaves for a year of studying abroad and I am so jealous. I know she'll have an amazing time but I'll miss her a lot.

I've done a little bit of shopping, the kind of 'oops it slipped and fell in my basket' type of shopping in Boots so look out for a haul very soon.

How has your week? What have you been up to?

I love free samples, I mean who doesn't?! You get to try a product before you buy and it's free so it's even better! I now have two seperate drawers in my collection for my samples and I'm slowly working my way through them and finding some gems in there too.
I have all my face/bath/body products in one drawer as I can grab them before a shower and try them out. 

I also have a drawer of perfume samples that I've accumulated and I love these little samples. They're perfect for popping in my handbag and trying for a day to see if I like the scent or if it doesn't work for me.

Do you have a stash of samples like me?
