The Perfect Morning Skincare Regime For a Matte Finish*


If you're as lucky as me, and have lovely oily skin with pores that you'd rather not have, you'll always be on the lookout for a product that can help you tame it and reduce the visibility of your pores. Having oily skin means that even when I'm not wearing makeup, my skin feels horrible and has a shine to it. A shine I'd rather not have. So when I was so kindly sent the Bio- Essence skin awakening day cleanser*, I was eager to give it a go along with their Gold Water and Miracle Finisher.

Kat Von D || Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad || Plum


Kat Von D is a brand that I absolutely love the aesthetics of. A while ago I bought the Lock-It foundation purely because I loved the look of the packaging and, after trying it, it has quickly become one of my favorite foundations. So when my friend, Jade, gave me the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour set (Plum) as an early Christmas present, I was over the moon. I couldn't wait to play with it and share my thoughts on the blog.  

Nano || Intensive Whitening Kit*


A few weeks ago, Ideal World TV kindly offered to send me out a few of their products in their Bloggers Box to try. They also offered to send out something for someone in my life too, and for that I nominated Sam. I didn't know what they would send, so when it arrived it was a nice surprise. We were both sent The Nano Intensive Whitening Kit* to try out together, and we were looking forward to seeing if it was any good.

Small Lifestyle Changes






I am always trying to improve things in my life, to kind of better myself and although I've made a lot of changes in my life lately, I still have a few small improvements I'd like to make. This isn't me saying I'm unhappy with my life how it is, I am. I just feel like I'd like to make a few changes in my life instead of always saying "I wish I was the kind of person that..." because the only thing stopping me from being the person I want to be is me. I figured posting about it would make it a bit more official too, so I feel like I have to do it now I've posted about it.

The Ideal World Bloggers Box*


When Ideal World offered to send me a Bloggers Box* packed full of their favorite products to try, I was over the moon. Ideal World have such a wide range of products on their website, making it the perfect place to do your Christmas shopping. They also sent me and Sam a Nano teeth whitening kit each to try out, which I will be featuring in a separate post soon, so keep an eye out.
