French Sole June 2015 Birchbox UK

It seems 2015 has been the year of fab collaborations and beautifully designed boxes for Birchbox, and the June box is no different. A fun collaboration with French Sole, Birchbox have created a stunning array of boxes this month; with 3 different designs, each is a gorgeous stand-out box with a matching bag inside the box. I have to admit, I think my floral June box could be my favourite design yet! 

So the box might be pretty, what about the products inside? Birchbox have pulled a blinder this month, with some fantastic brands and products. Personally? I am smitten!

The Sunday Post #37

This week has been a rollercoaster for me. It's been busy, it's had some very important appointments and meetings and it's been one which has completely changed my overall attitude as a person. Funny how life works sometimes isn't it?

Lush are well known for their campaigns, supporting charities, groups and organisations around the world as well as being famously known for their hugely active part in animal rights campaigns. Today I wanted to share a post with you all which is different to the usual campaigns from Lush, a campaign with a message which is very close to my heart, a campaign I wholeheartedly support.

The Empties #5

A couple of weeks back I shared my first empties post in a long, long time, having let my empties box build up into a monster of empty products. Today I'm back with another empties post; short and sweet reviews of the latest skincare and body care products I've finished up! Empties posts are a great way to see what someone really thinks about a product once they've finished it all up - would I recommend these products to others, and even more importantly, would I repurchase?

I'm a big fan of NARS eyeshadows, owning a little selection of limited edition eyeshadow palettes that make me swoon every time I use them. NARS Jardin Perdu is my first eyeshadow duo, a much more compact way to try NARS eyeshadows, with two shades that have been selected to work together perfectly.

The Budget Contour Kits

Contouring has been in the beauty spotlight for quite some time now, with both high-street and high-end brands expanding their products and shade ranges to include must-have products and easy-to-use kits, making that sculpted, contoured look effortless. Whether you read blogs, magazines or prefer catching up with your favourite beauty guru on YouTube, everyone is talking about contour kits, and every brand is trying to compete in what is quickly becoming a very competitive place in beauty; to create the ultimate contour kit, the contour kit that sculpts and defines perfectly and wins the hearts of beauty adorers worldwide.

Liz Earle Botanical Shine for fine oily hair

A picture of Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo
When I was hairdressing, I quickly learnt that every single hair type has it's own woes. You can't treat any two hair types the same. I personally have very fine hair which is naturally oily. Oily and fine hair can be extremely difficult to maintain; if you don't use the right products, or use too much product, fine hair can very quickly make you look as if you've poured a pot of grease over your head. The amount of times I've washed and styled my hair in the morning, and by bedtime it looks and feels as if it hasn't been washed in days. Fine hair can so quickly look lank and lifeless, you want to style it properly to give it some life, but if you don't start out right, you're set for disaster from the get-go.

It's been quite a while since I last shared an empties post and in that time my empties box got very, very full. I've a few empties post coming your way over the next few weeks, all with quite a lot of products in each one - so these reviews are going to be short and sweet, recapping products I've reviewed before, sharing thoughts on products which were new to me. Let's get stuck in shall we?

We all know I'm a sucker for liquid lacquers. Over the past few months I've shared my love for liquid lacquers in quite a few different posts, in particular my Top Brands for Liquid Lacquers post which featured my top picks of both high-street and high-end liquid lacquers. I'll always love the traditional lipstick, but there's something about liquid lipsticks that I just adore.

This month's favourites | May 2015

I think it's safe to say May was a month of beauty indulgence. I spent more time pampering, spent longer doing my skincare routine both morning and night after realising just how much happier my skin looks when I take the time to really massage my skin, and become besotted with a couple of old favourites which are perfect for spring and summer.
