I tattooed my brows?! TESTING the new Maybelline Brow Tattoo

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

Like I would actually get a real tattoo? I’m too much of a baby!

However, Brow Tattoos…. Now they are definitely my thing!

Ive been trying out the new Maybelline Tattoo Brow as my eyebrows are usually non existent without some form of brow product….

I picked mine up from my local Boots store for around £12.99 – Yes I know, quite pricey for a Maybelline brow product so I was very anxious to see if it lived up to its price.

If you guys want to see step by step how to use the product and BEFORE and AFTER shots then look no further than HERE.

The product is very simple to use, just apply to the brows with the applicator brush, leave on for 20 mins or more then peel off! Easy Peasey…..

The below picture is during the process of application and trust me… IT DOES NOT LOOK THAT DARK WHEN COMPLETE… phew….

I chose the shade medium brown and it is ideal for my colouring and hair type.

I know some people had problems when peeling off the tattoo as its came off in chunks rather than all together which did happen to me slightly, but it’s really not a problem at all! The product stains just the right parts of the brows and is easy to remove if it gets on other parts of the skin.

For me the tattoo stain lasts for up to a week but does fade slightly by the end and still leaves a defined shape to my brows.

Overall I would recommend this to anyone too scared to have microblading or permanent makeup as the results are clear to see!

Have you guys used this brow tattoo before? Let me know what you think in the comments!

This dress though….

OMG it is beautiful. Its a suede like material so really soft and fits me beautifully. Ive had my eye on this for a while and so happy I bought it today. Its very feminine and again fits me like a glove and was only £13!

A failed attempt at a baywatch pose….

However this lovely swimsuit was only £4 and is a real bargain!

The material is actually very good quality and fits really well. It has a low back for added detail and I LOVE the colour!

Instagram | January

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

 

It is February and freezing, so i’m sat in my pyjamas – slippers on – cup of tea in hand – fire crackling – i’m happy.

I don’t know about you guys but Instagram is my favourite social media platform – I can literally spend forever scrolling through pictures of home decor, makeup and food and before you know it it’s been an hour…. or two..

Just Kidding… but not really.

So for those who may not have the joys of Instagram or haven’t hit that follow button yet, here are some of my latest posts of what i’ve been up to from now and through January.

So this was at 8:30 am at Penarth Pier. I was on my way to work and it looked so beautiful, the sunrise made everything look so pretty. Im lucky to live near the sea and the countryside so i’m always snapping the world’s natural beauty.

16650086_10155731364494179_1028985109_n.jpg

On this evening, I spent 3 lovely hours catching up with blog posts, comments and social media. As well as have a cheeky glass of wine or two. I tell you what, this arm chair from ikea is so comfortable and is so cosy to cuddle up on.

 

16559093_10155731364499179_37122727_n

This Milani blush is the perfect colour for me. As I am naturally paler toned, this adds just the right amount of warmth to my skin. Alongside my Ted Baker lipstick this peachy pair is perfect for me.

16650344_10155731364489179_1279220758_n.jpg

Does this need a caption? I love bubbles! This was probably the most bubbly bath I have ever had.

16650344_10155731364529179_1510106530_n

I was super excited to get my hands on the Sweet Peach palette. The colours are so pigmented and they smell gorgeous. If you want to check out my swatch video and blog post then click HERE.

16559139_10155731364534179_529120446_n

For those who are not familiar with Hygge, then I strongly recommend reading this lovely little book. Hygge basically means enjoying the little things in life like candles, cosy cushions, a cup of tea or in my case a hot bath with a glass of wine…

 16652065_10155731364654179_545106084_n

A table for two. This dinner set caught my eye and was a real bargain. It was from Asda and was only £14 for a 16 piece set. My flowers are also from Asda and I got them for £5 – another bargain. Not to mention my rose gold wine glasses from one of my best friends – Heaven.

16558818_10155731364649179_808967807_n

Shadeliers are IN at the moment. Not quite lamp shade not quite chandelier, these pretty things are from Next and add such an elegant feel to the house. I’ve got a matching one in the living room too..

16559140_10155731364644179_1825879910_n

These are actually the pjs i’m wearing right now. They are from Boux Avenue and are so cosy and warm for these winter months. Plus i’ve got grey nails in this photo and I was pleasantly surprised how nice they looked.

16559386_10155731364619179_405634264_n

Im so in love with this shirt from Primark. When I saw it on the mannequin I knew I just had to buy it. It has this cute bow tie on the front and looks great with jeans and heels. #Stripesforlife

16558556_10155731364579179_337728379_n

Anything marble, im there. This notebook was £3 from Primark and is great to keep in my handbag for those essential notes.

16559334_10155731364569179_1231231819_n

Ive been doing a lot of DIY projects lately and this rose bouquet is one of them. I used a candle holder as the vase and arranged the flowers inside. We also had some slate tiles left over so I made a decorative plate for the table. – Quite proud of myself.

16559351_10155731364574179_1789433588_n

Ive been after this Too Faced foundation for such a long time, and after hearing such good reviews, I couldn’t wait to try it myself. The formula is so creamy and dries instantly on the skin. It says medium to full coverage but you can definitely build it up on the skin.

16650496_10155731364584179_1933068920_n

I visited my local flower craft shop to browse silk flowers and was overwhelmed with how many there were. Im making my wedding centrepieces myself so getting inspo from here was perfect.

16559200_10155731364549179_617419908_n

So this stunning building is where im going to get married. We have set a date of 9th September 2018 and we viewed the building a few weeks ago. It has 8-10 chandeliers hanging from the ceiling with carved wooden walls. It was truly breathtaking and we fell in love with the place as soon as we walked in.

16521724_10155731364544179_696403262_n

Last night I wasn’t feeling 100% – full up with a cold. So what better way to spend the evening than with candles galore. It was so relaxing and I felt so much better after letting my body rest and recover.

Gosh thats a lot of photos.

Well as I mentioned guys, Instagram is my fave.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have been up to lately and I would love to see what you guys have been loving too, so send me your links!

How cute is this?

This little candle comes on a mirrored plate with a bell jar and bow. When I saw it I just had to get it because it is so sweet! I have one of these in my bathroom and one in the kitchen and maybe a few more around the house….

Carex Love Hearts Handwash

* I adore LOVE HEART sweets and when I received this to try, I knew instantly how delicious it was going to smell. Not only does it make my hands super soft but it also makes me want to drink the entire bottle…. oops

Jack Wills Body wash and spray

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Luffas are my thing. It makes any body wash lather up so well and creates bubbles galore. This set from Jack Wills is not only pretty for display but smells divine.

To do List

This notepad is my saviour lately.

Ive got so much going on that I need to either remember or quickly note down so this little book is great to keep in my bag for on the go note taking.

Jack Wills Scarf

Cosy or what?

This scarf is more so a blanket its that big! It is so cosy when on and the fabric is super thick and soft. Its really good quality and looks great with a beige coat and boots.

Primark pink jumper

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

In my Primark Haul video, I showed you guys this cropped pink jumper from Primark. It is so soft and I love to wear it in the evenings. Its a really dusky pink which I LOVE and is so comfy to wear all day…everyday if I wanted.

Matte Lipsticks? Here’s my Top 5…

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

Matte lipsticks are one of my favourite beauty products.

They have definitely become a lot more popular since the 90’s where Drew Barrymore still looked flawless and matte lips were in…

However, not sure on those brows…

Moving on…

I have narrowed it down to my TOP 5 matte lipsticks which was VERY tricky. Most of the shades are neutral tones which are really versatile and work with everyone and everything.

From Maybelline to Collection to MUA, here are my favourites at the moment…

Let me know of your favourite matte lip products, I would love to try some of your personal faves!
