amrezy palette: review.



Even before I had an Instagram account, I would have @amrezy page saved onto my internet favourites! I actually cannot remember any MUAs I was obsessed with before her if I'm honest. Her makeup is always on point and she takes contouring to another level. And as you all know I'm kinda obsessed with Anastasia Beverly Hills products at the moment. So as soon as I found out the two were collaborating to make an eyeshadow palette, I ordered it!

NEW hair miracle?


Today I wanted to share my thoughts on this Lush Cosmetics 'New' shampoo bar that claims to "stimulate hair growth". I'm not going to lie, but I'm not entirely a regular shopper at the store. Although their fresh and rustic style can be tempting, the shop's overly fragrant smell often has me running back in the other direction! My sister however is a major junkie for their products, so after going in and out for so long, I thought I'll try out a few things for myself. I actually bought this just over 2 months ago but obviously had to wait a while for a review so I could see the results. So the question is - did it or did it not work?

Lorde for Mac: review and swatches.


When I heard Lorde was collaborating with Mac Cosmetics to launch her own collection, I could not wait to get my hands on whatever she had to offer! Anyone who follows my instagram, has been on my blog or just knows me on a personal level knows that I love grunge makeup. Lorde's makeup is right up my street. Every time I see her in concert I scout through the web trying to figure out what she has used. So after much anticipation (and slight disappointment) here are my thoughts and swatches of the products.

super easy cheesecake ice pops.


I am majorly obsessed with anything chocolate or dessert related. But during the summer I tend to stay away from it because of the heat sweet things can be a bit extra sickly. However ever since my friend showed me an Instagram picture of this concoction I knew I had to make it! Not only do I love cheesecake, but the idea of "cheesecake popsicles" just seems so appropriate and a dream. So here are my cute DIY dessert ice pops. Enjoy!

festival vibes: on a budget.


Summer is all about the sun (if we actually manage to get any in the uk), bbqs and festivals. I've noticed a constant style for festivals this year has been a mix of eastern influences and brights. So as part of my 'on a budget' series I've come up with three festival inspired looks, that will get you noticed, without breaking the bank!

reactions in pictures.















I've seen this being done so much on YouTube, that I couldn't help but do it myself! This is of course the Bean Boozled Jelly Belly Challenge. But instead of doing a vlog post on it (and the fact that I don't have a youtube account) I decided to show the reactions in pictures. So get prepared for a load of sick faces, laughter and shocks! (p.s watch out for the out-takes on my instagram)...

*brow in the spotlight- june addition*


I've tried powder, wax and gel pots. Since my brows have been a little hard to tame this month, I decided to give this Benefit 'Gimme Brow' Gel a go.
