#BEAUTY | Skincare tips for combination skin

Hello January/February! I want to say I cant believe how fast January has gone, but its only been the last week that it seemed to have whizzed by. The weather is once again getting involved in my skincare routine and I have to change what products I have been using. 


I have been drowning myself in Mac's strobe cream more than anything since the sun went into hiding. Im pretty certain MAC superfans will have this as their all time staple for the perfect glowy base. It is quite the little miracle and can add a woken up look to the dullest skin. I think its worth the little investment if you're into glowy skin.


La Roche-Posay is somewhat of a new brand for me. Having first tried it out as another blogger recommended it. I have got their makeup remover which I spoke about in my recent youtube vid. This anti pore matt moisturiser I have started using as I like the consistency of it, its more of a serum. It can be used as a base for the skin as it has a little tacky feel to it. I love it because it helps my skin to be less oily without it drying out my skin. So it brings me the right balance. This brand is fab if you have sensitive skin btw.


Just arrived the other day was this REN glow gel cream I ordered and I have used it a few times, I love the light consistency of it. I wanted the cream version as I do have the glow tonic, which I prefer to use in the summer. This is a bit better for the winter as it has more coverage and hydrates the skin. It says it also protects against pollution which is a bonus for us Londoners ha!

Let me know what your tips for combination skin are!
XOXO

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
