Holiday Makeup...

Hi guys! Today I thought I would blog about those essential makeup items that are perfect to bring with you on your summer holidays.

So your holiday is all booked, your suitcase is packed full of bikinis and your passport is at the ready now you just have to decide what you need to put in your makeup bag.

If you are heading to an exotic destination then first you have to sit through a long-haul flight. Skin can become really dehydrated so to keep it looking fresh I would recommend the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream.  This is a beauty must have, it restores, calms and soothes dry skin. Pop this on top of your makeup across the cheekbones and on the eyelids for a instant healthy glow. When you step off that plane no one will believe you have just sat through an 11+ hour flight!

This 50ml tube is the perfect size for all handbags
and the right size to carry with you on the plane.

One of the reasons we love to go on holiday is to bathe in the hot sun and we all love a natural looking tan. To accentuate your glow sweep this bronzer across the cheeks, shoulders and collar bone.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit

For the summer it's great to play around with some really bright colours and I am loving these new ColorBurst Lip Butters from REVLON. I want to get my lips on all of them but the two I love at the moment are Raspberry Tart & Strawberry Shortcake.

Available from Boots at £7.99 each

If you like to wear a bit of mascara during the day and then want to pump up the volume in the evenings this is the mascara for you. The Volumizer Mascara from Bourjois has a transformable brush so all you need to do is choose the volume that best suits your style. Use Step One to perfectly define the eyelashes or if you want to focus on the lips. Use Step Two for dramatic lashes with up to 11x more volume, perfect for creating show-stopping eyes.

Available from Boots at £10.49

Thanks for reading guys and if you are off on your travels soon have a lovely time.

LUSH Hair Treatments...

Hi everyone! So today's post comes from my younger sister Olivia who wanted to tell you guys about these two LUSH hair treatments that she loves! Olivia has very thick hair and when it's in it's natural form can be quite dry & frizzy (she will kill me for saying that) so the R&B Revive & Balance treatment is a must. It helps to replenish moisture and repair split ends. Use a pea size amount and apply to the ends of dry hair and leave in. This product was originally invented for Afro hair types so if you have curly hair then this will let you embrace your curls instead of fighting with them!

For all the blonde beauties reading this, Olivia loves to use Marilyn Hair Moisturiser. This is a pre-wash treatment for blonde's who want lighter brighter hair. Whether you are bleach blonde or natural, you will want to keep brassy, orange tones at bay. Marilyn maintains the blonde you have, whilst chamomile and lemon combine to give a hint of a glint of brightness. Leave the treatment in for 30 minutes and then wash off with your favourite shampoo.

Thanks for reading.

Dolce & Gabbana Charm Pencils...

Hi guys! So I was just browsing the web searching for new beauty products and I came across these really cute Dolce & Gabbana charm pencils. Dolce & Gabbana are known for their playful sense of humour and these limited edition charm pencils reflect that bit of fun.

There are four charms to choose from, each representing a different characteristic of the D&G universe. My favourite is the eye crayon Stromboli. This intense eye crayon has two charms that indicates the excitement and sentimentality of a love affair. One is a miniature golden love letter, the other an envelope from Milan, the home and heart of Dolce & Gabbana fashion. I also really like the lipliner Dahlia, this features a cute, golden high heel charm to represent fashion and femininity.

The whole collection is available exclusively to Harrods retailing at £19.50 each.

Eye Crayon Collection, Stromboli, Coffee, Black & Platinum

Lipliner Collection, Nude, Dahlia, Fire & Soft

Liz Earle Skincare...

Today's post is all about one of my must have skincare products, the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
Hot Cloth Cleanser. I bet many of you reading this have probably heard of this before, it is constantly being recognised in magazines and has won so many awards.

It was my mum who had recommended it to me so that shows you it is great for all ages and skin types! I noticed a difference within the first day, it has helped with blemishes and my skin feels so soft, plus it is a dream to put on and quickly gets rid of all traces of make-up, even mascara.

The cleanser contains natural ingredients such as eucalyptus and cocoa butter and to polish the skin use the pure muslin cloth to gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.

If you fancy giving it a go why not buy a mini starter set, 30ml tube plus 1 muslin cloth for only £5.50. Check out the website below to find out more.

Thanks guys.

Caviar Manicure...

Now you can treat your nails to a bit of Caviar! Introducing the first three dimensional nail kit to create a fun, sophisticated and inspirational look!

Available in three different shades each kit contains a base nail varnish and a bottle of coloured beads. Apply two coats of the base colour then sprinkle over the beads while the nail is still wet. Once covered gently press the caviar beads onto the nail bed to secure and leave the nails to dry for 15-20 minutes.

Warning! These nails will draw lots of attention! I can't wait to try these out, they are available from for £18!

If you manage to get your hands on any of the colours then let me know what you think! I reckon these are going to be really popular.
