Hand Food ?

I have tried so many hand creams it's ridiculous. I suffer with dry skin in the winter and my hands can tend to crack. I have used a variety brands such a nivea, vaseline and even aqueous cream, but the one thing i can't stand is that so many hand creams leave your hands feeling greasy which then in my case makes my hair greasy. I have since discovered my favourite hand cream!

  Soap and Glory's hand food is amazing. Since using it for the first time it has constantly been in my handbag. It leaves my hands feeling so soft after using it without leaving my hands feeling greasy. Another thing i love about this product is the smell, It has shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow which smells. amazing. The packaging is also something that stands out to me, its girly and the tube a great size which is easy to put in your hand bag. At only five pounds i think that this hand cream is such a bargain and i will definatly be purchasing another one when it runs out. 

Has anyone else tried this hand cream ?

Peaches and clean ?

I always see the brand Soap and Glory in Boots and have heard so many good things about the brand, however i always seem to have to spend my money on other things which means i have not been able to try any products from the brand...until now! For my birthday my family kindly got me some Soap and glory products. So i thought i would do a few blog posts reviewing some of the products.

Peaches and clean....

Peaches and clean is a four in one cleansing milk that can be used to melt your makeup off your face at the end of the day. I was worried about trying this product as first because i didn't want it to make my skin break out. The product smells just like peaches which i love. I use my finger tips to put the product on to my skin focusing on my t-zone which is where i get breakouts. I then rinse my face after with water and then apply my usual toner. I think that the product works well, It hasn't made my skin break out but i haven't used it long enough to notice if it has stopped any blemishes, however it does leave my skin feeling soft after using it. 

Has anyone else used this cleanser before, or used anything from the soap and glory range ? let me know what you think in the comments below :)

Products i will repurchase...n.o 1

I thought i would start doing small posts about the products i repurchase as they are so amazing. They will just be quick posts that i will write if i re purchase a product again with a little review about the product, I thought i would start with this product as it is one i have repurchased to many times to count.

The St Ives naturally clear apricot scrub is amazing. It is my go to product for when i am having a bad skin day as it makes my skins feel so soft and amazing after using it. I have used the face wash of this before and loved it, however they never have it in store which is so annoying. I would definitely recommend this product if you have blemish prone skin, It hasn't stopped my spots from appearing but instantly makes my skin feel better after using it.

Has anyone else tried this scrub or anything from the St. Ives skincare range ? Let me know what you think about these little reviews.

Last week it was birthday and I turned 20! I had such a lovely day in London at Westfield shopping centre where I did a bit of shopping and met my family for champagne and dinner. I thought I would share with you all a few of the lovely gifts that I received...

 I was so lucky to get such lovely gifts. And i can't wait to post reviews on all of these makeup products. 

I went out in the evening with my friends, Here is just a quick photo of my outfit. I got the dress from missguided.com in the sale :)

Jeffrey Campbell Skull Lita...

I was so lucky this Christmas and received some wonderful presents. I thought I would show you one of my favourite presents, which I am so in love with!

I have wanted these Jeffrey Campbell skull litas for ages but couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a pair of shoes. These are also the first pair of Jeffrey Campbells I have and had never even tried a pair on before. But as soon as I saw them online I instantly wanted them.

The boots are so comfy and look amazing! They are rather heavy due to all the skull studs on them but they are so well made and even come with spare studs. I haven’t had a chance to wear them out yet but I will be sure to post an outfit of the day when I do.

What do you think of Jeffrey Campbell shoes? Do you have a favourite pair?

Bourjois 123 perfect foundation review


I have been using Rimmel Londons 25 hour foundation for ages. I recently ran out and decided that I needed a lighter foundation as I am very pale and found that the lightest shade of the 25 hour foundation was a tad dark for my skintone. I searched for the best highstreet foundation for pale skin and discovered that the Bourjois 123 perfect foundation in the colour 51 light vanilla was a good match. As soon as put it I could see that it was a great colour for my skintone. It is a very light consistency which took me a whilst to get used to but I now love it. The foundation doesn’t make my skin look perfect but it does provide good coverage without being able to see that I am wearing foundation. The two things that I don’t like about this foundation is that it gives a very matte finish. My skin is normal and so I don’t think this would work well with dry skin, however would be perfect for those with oily skin. The second thing is I find it tends to appear really light when first applied on the skin, however if you apply to much it can become orange so you need to be careful.

Overall I do like this foundation, and I find it works well with a bit of concealer on the top and tiny amount of powder to set it.

I hope you found this little review useful. If you have any foundation recommendations then please comment below.
