#BEAUTY | My Makeup Wishlist

The season of giving has just gone but with a birthday on the horizon, I'm hoping my boyfriend or mum reads this so they know exactly what to get me ! ahaha how cheeky of me ;) in all realness the wanting of makeup never ever stops, its like a heartbeat. I hope I'm not alone in wanting to try out these products

p.s. don't forget to check out my new youtube video on this makeup look (link on homepage)



#SKINCARE | Crabtree & Evelyn Body Duo's - White Cardamom / Cocoon & Pomegranate

If you are looking for a gift that gives comfort and indulgence for your body, here it is. I feel like this cream is so nourishing it penetrates all layers of my skin. As much as I wanted to re- gift this because it is so beautiful, I had to try it out for my blog so I can tell you whether to buy it or not!
The smell is something I cannot describe, it is so spicy and long lasting I love it. Here is a quote from their website describing the smell

The scent is an unexpected delicate combination of sweet iced vanilla, mid-winter mimosa, and mulled spice essences of cardamom.
I could tell that the scrub had sugar in it because of the texture of the grains, and that is something I really like as it is a natural ingredient not like the plastic beads that harm the environment. It really is a luxurious scrub, it feels so silky smooth when you rub it on and gets rid of dead skin and dirt :) the cream is also smooth on application, they are a true dream duo.

#REVIEW | You MUST binge watch these NETFLIX shows

I am now back to flicking through Netflix, deciding what to binge watch next. Once you have typed with much difficulty… psykolgifal thrilkers….and then deleted and re typed, PHYSCOLOGICAL THRILLERS , browsed through the comedy section and realised you have seen it all or don’t fancy this or that, definitely NOT that…then its no fun anymore. So I am going to tell you what exactly YOU should be binge watching on your television, not just any television mind you…make sure its high definition, with crisp displays like theOled TV Panasonic to get the best viewing! *there are NO spoilers : )*
The following programmes I recommend are my personal favourites and I either became obsessed and finished the whole series in a day or 2 OR I couldn’t wait until the next episode went live :)
1.The Sinner – Watched in a day…a day I tell you. I had the numbest bum after, but it was worth it. Jessica Biel is the main character and she kills a man, unprovoked and doesn’t know why. From this moment on I began…

#SKINCARE | Nip+Fab - You NEED this scrub if you want smaller pores!

This is the first time I have used any product from NIP+FAB, and as any skincare product or brand I try for the first time I'm always unsure of how it will work with my skin. Obviously when you read reviews of products its from someone's personal use and doesn't always mean it will work the same on your own, but  I believe this product could help out a lot of skin problems. Everyone needs to exfoliate so the old skin shifts and the new skin has life :) this product is honestly now my holy grail.....like I'm Holly Golightly when she finally finds the cat with no name after all the emotional torture of not knowing where he is! (such a dramatic comparison but we'll go with it aha)
I bought it when it was on offer for £6 something and I believe its £9 normally, but truly its worth the £9 ; when my one runs out I definitely will be buying another. As you can see from the photo its a sort of white paste, with the exfoliating bits in it. I massage it all over my face and…

#BEAUTY | Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Event + Makeup Review/Swatches

Welcome to the glamour. Not gonna lie, my makeup desk is now oozing as much glamour as a starlet from 1950's Hollywood with this lot on it :) #allthegoals.
I went to a makeup masterclass by Joan Collins makeup artist *still pinching myself* and was given the most lovely goody bag! Just to be in the same room as Joan Collins make up artist was a big deal for me as I adore the whole Hollywood era.
The event itself was so awesome, to learn more about the products and how much Joan Collins herself is involved and the back story of it was fab. If you want to see the masterclass the event was filmed and is on the Facebook page of the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty.
Eyeliner + Mascara :
So I already had the brown eyeliner and I loved it and now I have it in black also, you can read my review here. I have been using the mascara non stop since I received it as I find the brush to be great for a non clumped look. The mascara consistency itself is not flaky. 
Eyeshadow Quad :
At the event I w…

#BEAUTY | Models Own foundation stick and colour chrome eyeshadow review

This foundation stick was about a 1 minute decision, I saw on their twitter that they released these and I bought it right there and then. I suppose I bought it so quick because I normally talk myself out of makeup purchases...when you have so many foundations, eyeshadows, lipsticks how do you justify another one aha *inner self - " there is no such thing as too many " The price was also another reason for the purchase as at £9.99 it was worth a try, seeing as it is my first time using a stick foundation!

Its super compact, super easy to apply and to my surprise, (I cant say my expectations were that high...I was just being sceptical AF) so easy to blend! I think I lucked out on choosing the correct colour (15) as I wasn't sure which colour to go for but I guess I make better decisions under pressure!  Are you wondering about coverage? I would say it is a medium to full coverage with the added bonus to touch up throughout the day without it looking patchy.  pssst. it al…

#SKINCARE | REN Perfect Canvas Serum

RENis a brand I’ve only been familiar with for a short while, and although I see it most days where I work I never really had the urge to use it due to my stubborn thoughts that it is just like any other skincare brand. Sceptical Sarah for you. But after attending a training session all about REN skincare, the story behind it and a deeper look at the ingredients I decided I should really give it a go and quickly took back my stereotypical thoughts. REN recently launched a new product called: The perfect canvas finishing serum, which I was lucky enough to get a whole bottle of my own from the training session to try. My first thoughts were how aesthetically pleasing the bottle was, it looks clean, it’s the right size for the hand and has an easy to use dropper applicator. To touch it feels super smooth, I feel like that’s just a taster of what it feels like on the skin!

 Now, I had been using a few of REN’s other products hand in hand with using the Perfect Canvas and on some occasions,…

#REVIEW | Empress MIMI Lingerie Sub Box

As women, we all have certain weaknesses. I know one who can't resist pretty shoes but has nothing suitable to wear with them. Others adore frilly lingerie but never have any money to buy outer clothing. - Edith Head
Hola, As the title says I am going to review a lingerie subscription box. In the past I have reviewed beauty sub boxes but never a lingerie box, yet I think it is such a personal and unique idea. Lingerie is not something people indulge in as much as we would like, well I know I speak for myself there but I'm sure some can agree?
There is something so intimate about getting lingerie in a sub box rather than just going to the shops to buy. Not only is it like a present to yourself, but it has all the fuss and fancy of the tissue wrap, the note and the luxury box.
I was so impressed with this brand and their thought behind the box. I feel the whole concept is empowering to women and promotes body appreciation <3  
 Lingerie is my next love after clothing; I think …

#OOTD | 4 Ways to style a tunic

Jeans - (here) similar 

Hey guys, today I'm going to bring you a post on how to wear a tunic 4 different ways :) I mean they are pretty simple ways to subtly change the tunic style depending on the event or just the way you feel. So I have named mine : modest, smart/casual, badass and lazy. I wonder if you can guess which is which haha!
I got sent this beautiful tunic from NoLoGo-Chic.co.uk which is 100% linen and I actually really like it as a garment. I cant say I have ever owned a tunic like this before but  I found it to be a very versatile piece of clothing. I like how you can dress it down or up or even just use it as a cover-up/coat.
As you can see from the photos I paired it with some jeans with a simple flower design and a slogan tee. What's your favourite way that I styled it?             

xoxo






#OOTD | Busy Sleeves + Denim w/ @WEARALL

Vans   Flared Sleeve Bardot Top (Here)
Jeans - Zara Sunglasses (Here)
A huge hello, feels like its been a long time since I sat down and wrote an update about what I have been up to. Had to stop myself putting  and exclamation mark at the end of that sentence coz I feel like I do it to every sentence aha! Does anyone else do that, and then when you don't put and exclamation mark it feels like your being blunt??!! 
Let me talk about this wonderful outfit before I start babbling on about life. Sooo I got contacted by WEARALL recently, who said they would send some clothes out to me if I would like. I spent a good few hours making my decisions of what to pick and then I had the surprise of not knowing what  I was getting until I came :) always fun!  I decided to do the posts  separate and this is the first one. The top is the piece from WEARALL.com and it is my fave from the bunch I got sent <3 its got the girly flared sleeves, the comfort and also an elasticated bit at the top …

#BEAUTY | How to get a salon blow dry at home w/ PRO BLO

Hey guys,

I thought I would write a segment on here about my experience with PRO BLO. I'm so sad because I done a whole speaking segment about my thoughts on the Pro Blo Curl Me set on my YouTube channel, yet when I went to edit it on Premiere Pro the audio was missing.....I honestly am so frustrated and if anybody can help or send me a link on how to sort it please do! So I'm going to link my vid here but also write a little bit about how it went.

Hair Backstory -  Straight, Thick, Long-ish...

I got sent the Curl Me set as PR sample which contains : X 6 CurlME Barrels. (x 2 Small, x 2 Medium x 2 Large)
X 6 Hair Clips.
X 1 Handle
X 1 Travel Bag
At first I was thinking that the 6 barrels wouldn't be enough but to my surprise they was, and I believe anymore wouldn't of fitted in my hair due to the size of them. Its all about the way you segment your hair and getting the correct amount in each section.
It gave me the volume I wanted and also the ease of use was such a bi…
