My New Complexion Heroes from Cover FX

Complexion Heroes from Cover FX

Well well, long time no beauty chats from me.. there wasn't really any particular reason for the break, it just kind of happened. However I don't regret it one bit, because it made me see the bigger picture in my reasons for blogging and also made me realise why my heart wasn't in it lately. I will always love beauty and makeup, not to mention that I will continue to be curious and intrigued about every new release out there. But that doesn't necessarily mean I want to blog about it all anymore. Lately I felt like my whole outtake on blogging was just a superficial mess and in a way when you are blogging about beauty, it's hard to put a deep, meaningful spin behind it all. Plus I was trying to aim for what was unachievable in my personal life where being a mother is number one and being a beauty guru that looks perfectly polished all the time is last on my priority list. I was trying to keep this very important part of my life away from blogging and completely seperate the two, but what I ended up with is beauty reviews with no soul or meaning in the real life. So I am turning a new leaf and trying to see blogging differently, in a way that can be adapted to my everyday life. It is a hobby that I enjoy and an outlet for creativity, but it's also a place where I want to be able to share snippets of my real life, which doesn't always involve perfectly placed flatlays and immaculate makeup looks. I've realised that trying to seperate blogging from the other real side of me, the one where I come home from work to house chores and mommy duties, is going to be impossible. So for now whilst I figure it all out and gradually take my blog in a direction that suits my lifestyle as it is.. I will post when I can (without feeling bad), only about what holds an intrest in my life and about brands that I truly want to support. So today's post is all about my newest complexion heroes from Cover FX, which is a brand that is new in my makeup collection, but not one that I haven't heard of before. I'm quite excited about the brand as a whole because they're all about creating the perfect canvas to suit your lifestyle, which is brilliant. I'm all about having that flawless complexion but still want it to look natural and take minimal time to achieve. So let me tell you all about these new base additions and how I've been using them.

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..
