Sweet as Nectar with Colourpop

Sweet as Nectar with Colourpop

It's been a while since I've made a Colourpop order and even this particular little haul was actually placed back at the end of May, but somehow I'm only getting around to reviewing it for you now. The American brand is a favourite amongst bloggers for their amazing and unique products, not to mention the affordable prices. Sadly us bloggers here in the UK are bound to be hit with custom charges, so do try to factor that cost into your overall purchase when ordering. For example this particular order came to a total of $50 and at least I got free international shipping, but nevertheless got stung with almost £20 customs. However I have been really happy with every single product, not to mention that it all arrived in pristine condition, so I won't overthink the extra charges. Now let me tell you about what I picked up.. since it was just the beginning of summer I went a little bit crazy for the peachy tones and in particular the brand's Nectar collection.

Time For Some TLC

Time For Some TLC featuring John Frieda, Pixi Beauty, Aquis, Spacemask, Sanctuary

You know those moments when you've been so busy and realise that it's been days or weeks since you've done something for yourself or treated your skin/hair/body to some much needed TLC... yup that feels like me all the time lately. I just don't understand where the hours or days go by, but they seem to whiz past in a blur and I find myself neglecting all of my beauty routines. Well recently I was sent a couple of beauty parcels and decided to take some 'me time' and have a little pamper, so I thought I would share that and tell you all about it..

Introducing Butter London

Introducing Butter London

I have to admit once I find a nail polish brand that I like, I don't step away too much from it and definitely stay in the safe zone of what I know. However I was recently introduced to butter London and finally had the opportunity to expand on my nail polish experience. I was always aware that the brand existed, I remember browsing through their gorgeous products many times back in the day in Avoca (in Dublin, way before my move to London began). However I never really knew much about the brand itself, so for anyone else that is on the same boat as I am.. let me tell you a bit more background information. The brand was founded in 2005 by beauty-obsessed British entrepreneur, Sasha Muir, and since then it's been at the forefront of fashion. It's certainly recognised worldwide for its catwalk colours and innovative formulations. There's always been a luxury approach since the brand has worked alongside the world's top fashion designers to bring runway trends to life. My favourite part about the brand is that they have always focused on using a better-for-you ingredient philosophy, meaning there's no Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, phthalates or parabens in any of their products. Recently the brand have introduced new products to their range and even had a makeover on some of their nail treatment products. So let me tell you all about these products and my experience with them.

New Skincare On Trial


I'm back again with new skincare goodies to try out for summer. I've only had the products here for a little while, so this is more of a first impressions post, but I wanted to share my thoughts regardless. Most of the brands here are completely new to me apart from The Ordinary, which I have tried a couple of items from (mostly makeup though).  So let's get started..

A Charlotte Tilbury Haul

A Charlotte Tilbury Haul

This post has been sitting in my drafts for some time now and I'm a little bit ashamed to admit that I am only getting around to publishing it now. You may have seen from my Instagram that I placed a little order with Charlotte Tilbury back in April and I've had some new makeup goodies to pay with. Well they're not so new anymore, but I've had plenty of time to trial everything and form a detailed review for you, which is what I'll be doing today.
