Shop My Favourites

A lil' body shop top up

Monday, 24 July 2017

If there's one place I love to have a lil mooch around it's the Body shop, walking around spritzing all the smellies trying out the lotions ~ heaven ~ and although I didn't have the time to go and have my usual mooch around the shop, I did manage to order some classics and new favourites online.

Firstly I'll start with the make-up I wont be going into too much detail with this because I'll be buying a couple more bits and doing a 'testing body shop make up' over on my YouTube channel and if that's something you'd like to see you can subscribe here to catch it!. I picked up the contour palette in light, a matte liquid lipstick in Mauritius Dahlia and a Eye colour stick in Cyprus Bronze. From a first glance all of these products look lovely, I haven't done any swatches though, I'll save everything for the video!.

On too skincare which I can share a little more about. I absolutely adore the body shop mists usually I go for my classic mango but I decided to switch it up and go for Pink grapefruit, this scent is so zesty and sweet and it is perfect for the summer. 

Next I picked up one of my absolute favourite body butters which is the green tea, I just finished off a tub the day before my parcel arrived (Thankyou Royal Mail). This butter not only smells very crisp and fresh but it isn't too over powering at the same time. Although, to be honest this could smell like I'd bathed in green tea and I'd still use it - the quality is incredible this is one of the only products that has actually made a noticeable difference to my dry sensitive skin and I could rave about it for hours.

I decided to treat myself and take a little risk at the same time, Usually I wouldn't go for a product from the tea tree range just because it's pretty strong and my skin is quite sensitive and the two just do not mix. However, I saw a targeted gel for blemishes and as a suffer of adult acne I feel like I've tried everything. At this point I just hope it'll clear by itself, anyway I picked this up and I've been using it for about 2-3 nights (I use after moisturiser before bed and leave through the night) and I can see the difference already. Those huge scary spots *poof* gone. The product itself has a 'dofer applicator' a little like a concealer it's very precise which makes it so easy.

I am thrilled with everything I picked up and don't forget if you'd like to see my first impressions on the make up don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube!.

wouldn't you just love to bathe in tea tho?.

My favourite memories; Starting a scrapbook.

Friday, 21 July 2017

One of my favourite things to do is take photos, whenever I off somewhere new I always grab my trusty Cannon or at the very least my iPhone. This is because I just love keepsakes, memories - I'm a memories hoarder I mean if there is such thing. 

The perfect way for me to keep all of my memories close is a scrapbook, I love getting creative and ultimately making a mess - glitter can usually be found all over my work space. 
I picked up a plain black sketch book for the scrapbook (mainly as most scrapbooks I found had monkeys and huge bubble writing on the front) and got creative with a lil gold paint and glitter for the cover I know it looks a tad unprofessional and messy but it's personal and I love it.

The prints I was kindly gifted by Printiki*. Printiki offer high quality prints for super affordable prices, there are a variety of different sizes (4x4, 5x5, 4x6, 5x7, 6x8). You can also choose if you'd like a retro boarder or not (personally, I love the retro). There's also photo books which you can choose from (A4, A5, Square m) as well as small, medium and large posters. Personally, I chose a glossy finish but you can go for a matte if you'd prefer. 

I picked out 28 prints (Random number Charlie). 28 prints of my family, my best friends, my boyfriend and from a holiday. 28 perfect memories. Since I don't manage to visit my family and friends much, It means a lot having all the fun memories close by. You can also choose to have text on your prints, I left mine clear and wrote on them with a Berol Itallic to fit in with the theme of the scrapbook.

The prints are very affordable starting at just £5.50 for 20 high quality glossy (or matte) prints. Your precious memories are printed on Kodak Edge and Fuji Crystal Archive paper. You can see more about prices here.

I'm insanely excited to fill the rest of my scrapbook in, I have many more pages for many more memories. Thankyou Printki for bringing my precious memories to life, If you'd like to bring your memories to life an get free delivery whilst doing it, you can use my code - S5H8VKQB
