Happy New Year everyone!

Can you believe that its 2018 already? It’s crazy!

I wish you all a healthy and happy year ahead and hope it is filled with positivity, happiness and love.

Speaking of love… this year is the year I get MARRIED! On September the 9th I will be getting married to the love of my life and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life together. We have just this second booked our honeymoon which is super exciting and just need to finalise a few final details for our trips!

As I said I truly think that this year will be great. Looking back on the last year for my blog, it has grown so much and I have had some AMAZING opportunities working with brands and connecting with new people. I don’t usually do resolutions for the New Year but I would love to continue to make my blog and youtube channel grow and also discover more beautiful blogs/influencers too!

 Have you guys had a favourite memory from 2017? Or any achievements, even small? Then share them below! I would love to know!

In the spirit of Valentines Day, I wanted to create a post featuring my all time fave colour –

PINK.

A lot, and I mean a LOT of the things I own are pink and I love it!

So lets take a look at the things im loving for this valentines season…

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

If you don’t already know, this is my new favourite eye shadow palette EVER. It smells gorgeous and the colours are even better, all in the shades of pink.

Click HERE to see my swatch video.

Chanel  Chance Perfume

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This perfume is so beautiful. I love keeping perfume boxes (because im weird) and this one is a great addition. The scent is very delicate and feminine and is great for wearing everyday.

Peony and Rose Petal Candle

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

* 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

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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

SAM_1304.JPG

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.

Click HERE to see the video.

And that is my PINK haul for you guys.

I would love for you all to find your inner pink self and show me your FAVE pink things for this Valentines season.

Hope you guys are having a lovely evening.

So…

I went shopping today to one of my favourite places on earth –

PRIMARK.

I went in about 9am and just to let you know guys, that is the best time to shop… It was so quiet, no queues and no fighting over the last pair of shoes in a size 5……

I was so impressed with the amount of gorgeous things this month and just had to do a haul for you guys. Most of the items were actually SALE items, which makes everything better (including my bank account).

All of my purchases you can find in my video below, and I highly recommend you have a little look as I have included a TRY ON of all items!

Ted Baker Treasure Trove + Swatches

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you are looking forward to 2017 and what it has to bring.

I had a lovely Christmas with some beautiful presents and every year me and my sister get some form of Ted Baker product. (It’s kind of tradition now!)

And every year I am blown away by the quality and detail of the products and packaging. I’m a sucker for pretty boxes or bags so my collection of Ted Baker merchandise has grown and grown over the years.

This year was no exception, with its stunning pastel floral theme – Im in heaven.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

See what I mean? BEAUTIFUL!

Inside are a few of my favourite beauty products from the 2016 collection which match the colour scheme perfectly.

Below I have included swatches and detailed photos of each of my favourites.

Bronzer/ Rose gold illuminating powder

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I had a very similar one from last years collection which I am still using today! It as a swivel mirror which is ideal for a quick touch up and the rose gold packaging…. LOVE IT!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The blush is a very soft and delicate colour that will suit any skin tone. Its a very light weight product but extremely pigmented. The bronzer again is rich in colour but also has tiny bits of shimmer to really create a sunkissed look.

Eye shadow Trio

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This trio compact is gorgeous. Again, a really nice size to put in my handbag if im out and about with a decent sized mirror too.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Colour wise, they have a neutral undertone to all of them and look very delicate on the skin. The first shade is a dusky beige pink with would look STUNNING just sweeped over the lids. The second is a super shimmery metallic bronze that would look lush in the crease blended out and the third shade is this deep rich charcoal grey. As you can see, all extremely pigmented and would work well with a flat or blending brush.

Contouring and eye shadow brush

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Eeeeeek! How cute do these look? I love the pink ombre effect on the tips and they are so soft its unreal. They are almost too pretty to use!

Nail Polish

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ive always been a massive fan of the Ted Baker polishes. They are always great quality with no lumps or gooey bits, really great pigment and rich colour. How pretty is that pastel lilac pink? Perfect for spring I think.

Rose Lipstick

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

A pop of pink with this pink rose shade. I like to create a display in my room of my Ted Baker lipsticks as they just look so gorgeous all lined up together.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It is probably one of the most vibrant lipsticks I have ever owned and will look great with a tan in Summer and in the upcoming Spring months too. It has a very creamy texture and glides on to the skin effortlessly.

Tinted Lip Balm

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This rose gold balm has not left my bag since Christmas day. It has been my go to balm for the last week.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I find all Ted Baker lip products super rich and creamy but this one leaves my lips feeling so hydrated and moisturised. It has a subtle nude/pink tone which I love as it goes with anything.

Eye brow pencil

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I usually use a powder or gel to do my eye brows but im not adverse to trying a pencil from time to time.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The texture was not as soft as previous pencils tried but it is very rich in colour and its actually a good match to my colour at the moment. Im sure it will come in handy for getting precision!

What a selection.

As mentioned previously, Im always so in love with the design, quality and packaging of the TB products and I think this year has to be my favourite so far.

Do you have any favourite makeup packaging designs or had any Ted Baker products? I would love to add to my collection!

Top 5 Christmas Movies.

Uncategorized

img_1053-4

I love nothing more than getting cosy with a hot chocolate and bowl of popcorn watching my fave Christmas films.

When people ask me what the best festive film is, I always struggle because I love so many of them…

BUT..

I have actually managed to create my top 5 festive films for you guys (after much thought)… So if your stuck for Christmas inspiration, I highly recommend this lovely lot…

main

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

The Favourite.

I can watch this film over and over and over again and not get bored. If you love Chevy Chase then this is the film for you. It is so funny and i’m pretty sure all families can relate to the antics of the run up to Christmas…

1975_2

Home Alone: Lost in New York

Out of all the Home Alone movies, this is my fave.

There is something so magical about New York at Christmas and I know i’m not the only one when I say how much I wanted to stay at the Plaza Hotel..

Again, I could watch it over and over and Harry and Marv absolutely make this film, such great actors.

christmas-with-the-kranks

Christmas with the Kranks

Who doesn’t like Tim Allen?

I can really relate to this film as my mother loves Christmas festivities as much as Jamie Lee Curtis and will do EVERYTHING to try and make it perfect on the day… despite any accidents along the way.

picture-of-tim-allen-and-eric-lloyd-in-the-santa-clause-large-picture

The Santa Clause

Another one with my guy Tim Allen, they really don’t make films like this anymore…

I thought the sets and props in this film were so incredible (again I wanted to live in the North Pole)…

If your looking for a truly magical movie, then this is my pick, it really puts me in the festive mood.

landscape-1450788637-the-holiday

The Holiday

Lastly, a romantic choice.

This is such a relaxing film and shows how Christmas is full of love and joy.

And how cool would it be to actually house swap with someone? Ummm…. VERY COOL, sign me up.

christmas-bow-with-holly-md

Well loves, that is my TOP 5 Christmas picks for you.

I would love to know your selections for this festive time too so let me know in the comments – I would love to hear!

Beauty Wishlist for Spring 2016

Uncategorized

img_1053-3

As most of you know, Spring is upon us and I have been on the hunt for some beauty essentials.

I have created a wishlist of some of the items that I am CRAVING right now. I’ve seen so many wishlists that you guys have created and thought I would join the club and show you what I need would love!

Lets get Started…

Benefit Hoola Zero Tanlines

So this little beauty is brand new and looks heavenly. I have used Hoola bronzer for years now and I have been waiting for Benefit to bring out a self tan. It comes with a little body sponge which you blend in the product in to your skin, so that means no more orange hands! It comes at a price of £19.50, so quite pricey for a tan but Hey! Its Benefit and I bet its INCREDIBLE!

CLICK HERE FOR THE PRODUCT

Rosie for Autograph by Marks and Spencers

Miracle Concealer

I love Rosie Huntington Whiteley. She is such a role model, not to mention absolutely flawless and a natural beauty. Her range of makeup is stunning and the range is amazing. This concealer is lightweight and leaves the skin with a luminous glow. Ideal for Spring/Summer, and also covering up those blemishes seamlessly! It’s £14 and comes in two shades, I always go for a lighter shade because im so pale!

Rosie Huntington Whiteley by Marks and Spencers

Liquid Eyeliner

Oh my.

Another Rosie product of course. I have always wanted an eyeliner like this. It has a super fine felt tip and it says its smudge proof…. SMUDGE PROOF! Did you hear that?!! Im a big liquid eyeliner fan and this type is my fave, I find it alot easier to use when its in a pen form. Its a reasonable £14, so I definitely plan to get this ASAP.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley by Marks and Spencers

Lipstick

Rose Gold. Rose Gold. Rose Gold. Rose Gold.

Heaven! Anything Rose Gold and I fall in love. Rosie’s range of lipsticks just make me smile so much. They come in so many different shades but the one that stood out for me was this delicate shade called CAMISOLE BLUSH. Its so pretty and girly and I need it in my life. Again, the price for this is £14 so not bad!

CLICK HERE FOR THE PRODUCT

H&M Beauty Powder Blush

If you haven’t checked out the new H&M beauty section, then you need to. I walked in the new H&M in Cardiff and was in awe at the professional looking range. It all looks so high end, but what caught my eye was the blushes. This shade is called GOLDEN PEACH and looks such a warm and rosy colour, perfect for even without bronzer. Its only £6.99 and I know I will be getting this the next time im shopping!

CLICK HERE FOR THE PRODUCT

Charlotte Tilbury Highligter

I have never owned any Charlotte Tilbury makeup, but I think I need to. Highlighters are my favourite makeup product. They can change and define the face shape so much whilst adding such dimension and healthy glow. The packaging on this looks divine, and just imagine a gold highlighter for summer. You’d be shining like a diamond. It is rather pricey at £32 but I have never seen anything so perfect.

CLICK HERE FOR THE PRODUCT

And that is it.

I really want to stick with this wishlist, no matter how long it takes! So look out for the review posts on all of these products when I purchase them!

Have you guys got a wishlist at the moment? I would love to see them so send me your links!

My Soap and Glory Favourites

Uncategorized

img_1053-2

I dont know about you lovelies, but I love Soap and Glory.

Their products are such good quality and the range is fantastic. I love a good pamper session and Sunday night is a great excuse to feel polished and relaxed before the week ahead.

I wanted to show you guys a couple of my favourite products that I really recommend.

12767824_10154602174384179_630506315_o

The Righteous Butter – £10

Find it here

Oh this is pure bliss. This body butter is so thick and creamy and just soaks into the skin effortlessly. My skin is left feeling so soft and smooth and smelling gorgeous with the Soap and Glory original scent. Its got shea butter and aloe vera so it is PERFECT for dry skin like mine.

12751658_10154602174454179_426640573_o

Hand Food – £2.50

Find it here

I keep this in my bag all day everyday. Its great when i’m in work and my hands feel dry and tired. It is super hydrating with shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow… yes marshmallow! It has a beautiful fragrance, very delicate like roses. They have a larger size too, but this is ideal for on the go.

12773417_10154602174479179_393652175_o

Heel Genius – £5.50

Find it here

After a long day in work, I love nothing more than to have a hot bath and use this little delight on my tired feet. I have never used a foot cream that is so thick and nourishing. It has menthol in the formula to help awaken and give my feet a great tingly fresh feeling. As for the softness, oh my… put it this way, my feet have never felt so good.

Have you guys tried any of these? I would love to know what you think and any recommendations!

A Birthday Surprise // Beautyandshe Cake edition

Uncategorized

  
Well hello my gorgeous beauties!

This is a bit of a different post today…

 I wanted to share one of my other great passions with you… Baking.

Ive always loved cooking, ever since I was a little girl. I used to bake cakes and biscuits with my mum in the summer and apple crumbles and pies in the winter – heaven.

If you lovelies don’t know, I’ve been with my boyfriend for seven years now and each year I have made him a birthday cake – with this year being no exception!

I decided to do something a bit different and try making a gravity cake!

So take a sneaky peek below and let me know what you think!

  

To make this sweet treat, I started off by making a simple chocolate cake, smothered it in chocolate fudge frosting then carried on with the decoration!

Firstly, I layered chocolate fingers around half of the cake, then added two thick straws to the centre of the cake.

I then added maltesers and m&m’s to the top of the cake and continued to add layers to the straws using the frosting as a glue.

I applied the rest of the chocolate to the sides of the cake and let them flow down as if they were cascading.

   
I then balanced two of the chocolate wrappers on top to act as though they were pouring on top of the cake! 

I’m so happy with how it turned out! And so was my gorgeous guy Jamie! 

If you guys would like me to try out any ideas you may have… Let me know in the comments below!

Don’t forget, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram! 

  

Speak to you lovelies tomorrow,

Love C
