When it comes to beauty products women definitely have the upper hand with a huge selection to choose from and lots of variety in general. Plus the packaging is always more attractive along with gorgeous scents to follow. However that doesn't mean that men beauty products are less effective in any way, in fact there's quite a few products that are actually worth stealing from your other half or picking up from the men's grooming shelves in Boots. Truth is, men's grooming products are actually created for sensitive skin. So they're formulated to be tough enough to remove a whole day's worth of dirt, sweat and grime without being harsh or irritating. Today I've got a new gorgeous men's fragrance in the form of Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct Eau De Toilette*, which I will be giving to my other half in a week's time when I fly back to London (but that doesn't stop me from kinda wanting to keep it for myself... so selfish I know haha)....
I'm the kind of person that either wears no makeup or goes all out with a smokey eye. However if I'm in a rush to get ready I'll go for a super easy smokey eye makeup & one that has been my go to when I make a bit more effort. So with some recent new product additions to my makeup collection I thought it might be a good idea to tell you exactly how I create a sultry, smokey eye within minutes.

So I've switched up my hair again, gone a bit shorter and have blended out my balayage a bit more by bringing the blonde nearer to my roots... hence making it look a bit more natural overall. Luckily I've had a few additions to my hair care routine at the same time to help keep my hair feeling soft & looking smooth, despite the colour damage. So I thought I would share with you my simple routine including some of these new products, as well as my usual go to products (which I've no doubt talked to you about before).

If you live in the UK or Ireland, you'll be aware that summer has pretty much been non-existent... we've definitely had more rain than sun for the past few months and I've even caught myself turning the heat on a couple of times (shock horror). However that hasn't stopped me from wanting to show off some of this year's SS16 styles such as this gorgeous Warehouse Botanical Floral Dress*, which I recently picked up from House of Fraser. One of the biggest summer trends is prints, with pretty florals being one of the most popular ones for SS16. Beautiful floral prints are playful and bold with vibrant colours, which really makes a statement in an outfit.

I rarely sport false eyelashes in my makeup looks over on my social media accounts and to be honest I've only ever mentioned them here on the blog a couple of times. That's simply because I'm not exactly a pro at applying them and as much as I love how they look on others in a finished look... I'm put off by the whole experience. However when False Eyelashes got in touch about a collaboration, I was definitely eager to have the opportunity to experiment a bit further with lashes in my makeup looks. False Eyelashes stock a huge range of different brands when it comes to lashes such as Ardell, Red Cherry, Esqido and the list goes on. Whilst browsing through the different brands and styles of lashes, I was definitely tempted to try some brands that I hadn't tried before but in the end I stuck with Eylure since it's an old reliable brand, which I have tried in the past and loved. Not to mention that it's also a budget brand, that can be found in most drugstores aisles also. So with Eylure as my choice, I ended up picking out a few different styles of lashes (a bit out of my comfort zone to be honest but that was the whole point to experiment a little bit). I also picked out the brand's Lash Applicator tool to help me along with the whole application process. Here's my first impressions so far...
