Taming Tangles with Tangle Angel | Review + Giveaway

Hello guy and gals! Let me introduce you to these beautiful brushes which are now a beauty must-have for me. I first stumbled across these little babies after receiving one in my #HBAlPorto goodie bag last year, and after getting another two in different designs, Tangle Angels have quickly become some of my favourite detanglers (and let me tell you, my hair does get hella tangley). The first thing you’ll notice is the gorgeous design of these brushes. Each one is shaped like the back of an angel, with a beautiful wing design, and a sleek handle which allows you…

A #LeedsXmasMeet and the #LaRedouteBloggerXmasParty

My January exams are finally over and thus I am emerging from beneath mounds of mathematical notes like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, which means I can finally update you on two big, fat, fabulous blogger events I went to in December. You may have seen me and a whole bunch of other bloggers tweeting the hashtags #LeedsXmasMeet and #LaRedouteBloggerXmasParty multiple times a day last month. We were pretty excited (as if you couldn’t tell)! Both events were on the same day and so I had a nice, long, fun-filled day with some lovely ladies. After a pretty horrific…

#YorkKiehlsXmas Blogger Event

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to Kiehls’ Christmas event in York. After driving to York blasting Justin Bieber, mooching around the Christmas markets, almost getting blown away by the extreme winds, and trying makeup and fragrances in Browns, we finally made it into the warm, toasty Kiehls shop, ready for a night of fun, nibbles, drinks and more! After all of the bloggers hung up their coats, warmed up their hands and introduced themselves, we received a lovely warm welcome from the store manager, Laura, along with the rest of the team. We…

Christmas Clothing I Want to Wear All Year Long

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve never been one to go out of my way to buy some particularly festive fashion on the run up to Christmas. Sure, I’ve got the odd pair of Christmassy socks and I’ve had the occasional pair of pants that feature animals in knitwear (thanks M&S!), but I’ve never gone out of my way to find a cheesy festive piece to take me through December. This year, however, for the first time, I will be spending Christmas in my very own house with my boyfriend – eek! – and I decided that I…

5 Make-Up Magicians You Should Follow on Instagram

Sadly, I am not blessed in the make-up application department. It’s not like I’m really bad and end up with lipstick all over my face and mascara in my eyebrows (not all the time anyway, lol), but neither can I create a wicked smokey eye blend nor chisel my face with exceptional contouring. This doesn’t stop me enjoying make-up or reviewing products that work well for me, but if you want to look for someone with incredible make-up skills, then these are the accounts you need to check out on Instagram… Maya Mia (@maya_mia_y) Of the five make-up extraordinaires I…

[M]Botanicals Sandalwood Soy Wax Candle

Now the cold, dark nights are approaching, there’s nothing I love more than sticking on a woolly jumper, whipping up a hot chocolate and lighting a candle. Not only does a candle set the mood, but the pretty glow is normally accompanied by a wonderful fragrance to help me relax and unwind after a long day. The candle I’ve been reaching for recently is the [M]Botanicals Sandalwood Soy Wax Candle*. This 100% soy wax candle uses high quality, phthalate free fragrance and essential oil blends, and each and everyone is hand poured and made with love. It has a burn…
