Happy SATURDAY!! I cannot EVEN TELL YOU how excited I am that it is the weekend! I have felt SO tired this whole week.. and just wanted a few days to relax and do NOTHING.. (well … besides blogging :P). I went to bed SO early yesterday (for me anyway).. and woke up this morning feeling SO MUCH BETTER!! I had nothing planned for today .. so I just did some laundry, cleaned my car.. and now I AM BLOGGING WOOP! ALSO … we have had quite a bit of snow where I am! You guys know how much I LOVE winter.. but I really want it to be spring ASAP!
So loves…my week has consisted of working.. and also ATTENDING MY FIRST EVER BLOGGING EVENT! I was invited to the Neal’s Yard store in Leeds Victoria Quarter (the VERY FANCY shopping side of Leeds)… and I cannot even tell you how excited I was!!! Let me tell you .. as soon as I walked into the store.. it smelt ABSOLUTELY DIVINE (I found that this was thanks to the steam diffuser.. as the girl there explained to me .. I am SO sorry I never got her name!!). Anyway … It was such a lovely experience for my first event as there were not many bloggers there, so I didn’t feel overwhelmed. Sunayah (the girl that invited me) was SO friendly and really knew her stuff! I had a browse of the store, a chat with the bloggers, AND A FABULOUS HAND MASSAGE AFTER! The girls then gifted us with a goody bag containing lots of organic goodies.. AND a sample of their white tea mask (which I have tried and absolutely LOVED!).
Let me give you a little bit of information on Neal’s Yard products – they specialize in completely natural, organic skincare products and have a range of products for every single skin type out there! They also have a range of supplements AND herbal remedies… as well as a special range of items for mummy and baby!! I never really looked much into organic products before, but after having a good look around the Neal’s Yard store, I have a few items I desperately want to pick up, including THIS orange facial wash, the full size version of the White Tea mask, as well as the Honey and Orange scrub!!
So angels… I would HIGHLY recommend checking Neal’s Yard out … they are definitely a more luxury brand, but if you are looking to invest a little more into your skin (like me!!), then you will LOVE THEM!!
Anyways …. lets get on with this post!! First things first.. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT IS THE END OF JANUARY! I don’t think my brain can quite register that it is February next week. I hope you have all had an amazing month though darlings?
Lets see what I have been loving this month ey?
Ohhh what a surprise.. it’s Lush! I think Lush is a favourite of mine every month to be fair .. I am yet to buy anything from their Valentines range.. but it is definitely high on my list!! The bath bomb above is The Experimenter, and it is a FAVE of mine as I just ADORE looking at it, and it makes my room smell AMAZING (JUST LOOK AT ALL THE COLOURS!!).. It definitely would cheer me up when the weather was dull outside… OK HOW SAD DO I SOUND THAT A BATH BOMB MAKES ME HAPPY?!
This little angel of a product is what has stopped me from having chapped lips in January .. BECAUSE NOBODY WANTS THAT RIGHT GIRLIES? This has definitely been my go to lip product.. I have stopped using Vaseline as it is SO much greasier (ew I hate that word!) than the Nivea lip balm! I absolutely LOVE the scent of this one too!!!
OH MY WORD LOVELIES… This highlighter is just SO GORGEOUS. I have been such a huge lover of MUR’s products.. and as soon as I saw the highlighter.. I knew I HAD TO HAVE IT. Not to mention… its 3 POUNDS! It gives your cheeks the most gorgeous sheen EVER!! I recommend it highly for those who are just starting to use highlighter.. it is SO easy to use (I am still a newbie and cannot get enough of it!!).
This diary from Paperchase has been an absolute LIFE SAVER this month .. it has helped keep me organized AND is the perfect size for my handbag!! My lovely bloggers… if you don’t already, GET YOURSELF A DIARY NOW!!
THIS baby has helped me look SO awake in the mornings this month! I cannot believe I have gone without it for SO long… it is just SO easy to apply, lasts all day, and is SUPER cheap. You can actually see my full review HERE!
THIS. Oh my… it has been the BEST product I have used this whole month. I am such a massive lover of setting sprays … and this Maybelline one is SO AMAZING. Although my Estee Lauder foundation has fabulous staying power.. I still have an oily T-Zone when I come home :(. Since I have been using this setting spray.. I have noticed that my makeup looks ALMOST as good as when I left in the morning (let’s be honest, I have my make-up on from 7AM to 6PM – NO product will keep it looking EXACTLY the same for that long!). This product has become a MUST for me every morning.. it definitely has helped my make up stay put AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.. I don’t have the awful shininess I used to get! My make up also just feels “in place”, and not tacky, if that makes sense?? Quick Tip – I have read quite a few reviews from people saying this left white spots over their face.. I have NEVER experienced this .. I give it a good shake before I put it on.. maybe this has helped?
I ADORE this pom pom … whichever bag I am using for the day .. I ALWAYS swap my little pom pom key-ring onto it! My bags feel BARE without it! It is SUCH a adorable accessory to have!!
I was lucky enough to receive these from Doll White.. and can honestly say THEY ARE AMAZING!! Having white teeth is SO important to me.. so when I received these I was SO excited to try them!! I have almost used them for the full seven days .. and have noticed a definite difference in my teeth! I also LOVE the fact that they are peroxide free.. so I didn’t notice that awful, sensitive feeling in my teeth after using them! They also left my mouth feeling so minty afterwards (YAY!!). I highly recommend them lovelies.. and know these will definitely be my choice of whitening strips in future!
LYDC Iridescent Purse*♥
I have had SO many compliments from people when I pull this little purse out.. and I can see why! It is the perfect size to fit in all my bags, and has become my little life saver (as I now store all my everyday make-up essentials/girly products in there!!).
I recently re-discovered this lipstick in my collection – I know I will have to put my dark lipsticks away soon *cries* (Ok.. I probably will STILL wear dark lipsticks ha!.. but I think lighter colours are suitable for the coming spring months!). I forgot how much I LOVE Mac lipsticks .. Creme Cup is a gorgeous, pinky nude colour, and is also a creamsheen formula. I have LOVED it this month.. and also know I will wear it SO much in the next few months!
I had to feature this in my January favourites.. I may have only been using it for a week.. but OH MY GOSH GUYS.. I have noticed SUCH a difference straight away! It is SO easy and quick to use, makes me skin feel SO soft AND polished. No joke loves.. I literally feel like I have had a facial every time I use it. In fact.. I love it THAT MUCH .. I will be doing a WHOLE post on it (Yayy!!!)… so make sure you stay tuned for that lovelies!!
WOW.. Now that was A LOT of favourites this month!! It has definitely been a BUSY month.. both blogging wise and in my life! I got my marriage registered, went to my first blogger event, worked with some amazing brands/people…. I honestly CANNOT wait for February. I am actually going to ANOTHER blogging event in February .. this one is in LONDON (eeeeeek!!!).. I am LITERALLY SO EXCITED! I also have some time off work.. so am excited for that!!
Right loves… hope you have a fabulous Saturday evening… I think I am just having a chilled one at home, catching up on blogs and emails (as you do :P). Are you getting up to anything fun? Let me know how your week has been! I will see you in my next post loves!
LOTS OF LOVE AND HUGS TO YOU ALL!
