Urban Decay Naked Heat

Urban Decay Naked Heat

If you've been reading my blog for some time then you will know that I love warm toned shades, especially when it comes to eyeshadow palettes.. so of course when Urban Decay announced their release of the brand new Naked Heat palette, I knew I had to get my hands on it. Sadly I missed their early pre-release, which happened for one day only when I was away on holidays. By the time the official release date came around the hype was real and I just knew I had to get this palette in my life. Luckily I had a 20% discount code for FeelUnique so I managed to get my palette for less than the original price tag of £39.50, which is always nice. But to be honest even if I had of bought this full priced, I would still think it's worth every penny. That's right I'm already in love with this stunning palette even though I've only had it for a couple of days.

PR Unboxing - The Beauty Edit

PR Unboxing - The Beauty Edit featuring Bravura, Shop Skincare, Korres, Willowberry, Caudal and 7th Heaven..

Hello lovelies and happy August! As usual the weeks, months are flying by and I can't believe it's August already, please tell me I'm not alone on this?! This month is an exciting one, as it's my birthday (finally turning 30 eek) and I'm also planning on getting back on track with blogging. You'll have noticed that it's been pretty hit and miss around here for a while,  to be honest life has just been busy and blogging has been last on my list. I've received a couple of parcels throughout July, which I am only getting around to using and testing out now so I wanted to put together an unboxing kind of post. I really enjoy watching these style of videos on YouTube and thought it might work out well as a written blog post also (at least I hope so). So let's get started as I do have quite a bit to get through..

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.
