Zara Sale | Haul

Sunday, 24 June 2018
Afternoon guys! Today’s post is a Zara sale haul. I did a poll over on my Instagam and every single person wanted to see a haul (this may be one of many) and I am not one to disappoint, so here you have it.
When it comes to Zara, I kind of always know exactly what I want, so I barely ever sit there browsing for hours. I picked up 5 staple pieces in the sale, these were things that were already sitting in my basket so I was extremely pleased to see they went on sale when I hopped onto the Zara app! I will try and link the items below (providing they are still in stock).
All the items are in a size small, aside from the trousers, which are both in the size medium (evidently a small would not fit me on the lower body).

The first two pieces are blazers. If you know me you’ll know that I am obsessed with blazers and have a rather large collection. I love throwing these over a basic white tee and a pair of jeans, this is pretty much my personal everyday uniform ha!

Double Breasted Check Blazer | £59.99 | Available here
Striped Double Breasted Blazer | £49.99 | Available here

The next piece is a pair of culottes, although on me they’re pretty much full length trousers (short girl problems, just so you get an idea of length, I’m 5’4”). This isn’t something I’d usually pick up, but the print was too pretty not to. The material is incredible and feels so comfortable, but because of the length, I’m not sure whether I’ll be keeping these, although they would make a change from wearing jeans everyday. They would be perfect for the hot weather we’re currently experiencing in the UK!

Printed Culottes | £25.99 | Available here

I’ve saved my two favourites for last! The first is this stunning silk shirt, unfortunately I couldn’t find it on the Zara website so I’m assuming it is sold out. Again, if you know me, you’ll know this is exactly the kind of staple piece I live for! Thrown on with a pair of jeans and layered with some gold necklaces and you’re ready to face the world!

This is possibly my favourite piece out of the lot. As you can see it is a little too long for me, but that doesn’t really bother me, because I can always get it taken up a bit from the bottom. The material feels so lovely on the skin and again it’s something that would be perfect in the heat paired with a white tee AND it has pockets, I mean if that isn’t perfection, I don’t know what is! If you guys spot any pieces like this on the website, send em’ my way because my lazy arse can’t be bothered to browse all the 4758373 pieces.

Polka Dot Trousers | £17.99 | Available here

I hope you guys enjoyed my little haul post because I sure as hell enjoyed working on it!

Ubersonic | Review

Saturday, 16 June 2018

Afternoon all! It has been way too long. I hope you are all doing well and having a great weekend.

Today I bring you my thoughts on the the Ubersonic toothbrush, as promised on my Instagram page. 
As I mentioned on there, I had braces for 4 years so I’ve always been very careful about the things I eat, in particular avoiding foods that would stain my teeth and the obvious one, sweets; although I don’t have much of a sweet tooth anyway. I am a die hard Arm & Hammer toothpaste fan. As soon as I stop using this, I notice a difference in my teeth straight away, but what is even more important is your toothbrush. I’ve always thought electric toothbrushes were a bit of a gimmick, the heads on these things are so small, it’s just time consuming to cover all your teeth. I have been using the Ubersonic toothbrush recently, and I cannot fault it. I love the fact that this toothbrush has a rectangular yet rounded head. It makes it so much easier to brush all your teeth without going overboard (overbrushing your teeth can cause your enamel to wear). It has an incredible high speed of movement, with 35,000 vibrations per minute (insane right?!). It’s so lightweight, so it’s perfect for travelling and of course you can charge it pretty much anywhere. At £19 and with the subscription option to get new brush heads every two months for an extra £9, which you can cancel whenever you want, you just can’t go wrong. You could spend a ridiculous amount of money on an electric toothbrush that will do pretty much the same job, so I would totally recommend trying this little gem out! 

AND - fun fact of the day: It’s made from the same material as an iPhone! 

I also received the teeth whitening kit. I was a little scared about using this in case I ended up like Ross from Friends in the episode where he pretty much ended up having glow in the dark teeth, but I grew a pair overnight and I’ve used this once so far and I am so impressed, I only had the gel on my teeth for about 20 minutes (I’m an impatient human being) and saw a difference straight away, I will definitely continue using this and keep you posted on how I get on.
Side note: the moulds didn’t work for me, which I was totally fine with. I just ended up spreading the gel over my teeth and grinning like a clown continuously for 20 minutes.

Ubersonic Toothbrush and Whitening Kit - available here

Have any of you tried the toothbrush or teeth whitening kit? I’d love to know your thoughts.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead and I’ll see you all in my next post!

*This product was sent to me, however, as always, my opinion is 100% honest.

Namaste guys! Another fun post this Sunday, although it will just be a photo heavy post. A few months ago my sister and I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Harvey Nichols to check the Fenty Beauty range out and I think it’s safe to say we got carried away. Below are the gems I picked up!

 
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer - available here
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation - available here (the colour range is incredible so I highly recommend getting matched in store just to be safe)

Let me know if you would like to see an in depth review of the products along with swatches!
I hope you guys enjoyed this short and sweet post and loved the photos as much as I do. I thought I’d post something a little different to me just rambling on.
See you in the next one!

Beauty Bay Haul | Skincare

Saturday, 17 February 2018
Hi guys! Today‘s post is a quick Beauty Bay (or as I like to call them, Beauty Bae) haul. They had a promotion, where it basically meant the more you spend, the more £££ you get off your order, this was for a show on tv called ‘Survival of the Fittest’, which Beauty Bay are sponsoring. Now, I don’t watch the show but boy am I grateful it brought along this promo! I took full advantage and bought a few things that I’ve wanted to try for a very long time and a repurchase.

 
It is a little bit of a skincare heavy haul, but I’m someone that likes to invest more in my skincare than in my makeup. I did however, pick up one haircare product and that is the Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield. You can never rely on the British Weather and that means my frizz ball is prone to going crazy in the rain and humidity and I read some great reviews on this product so I thought why the hell not?! I’ll give it a try. 

I also picked up the Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre, now this is a moisturiser that is a little pricey but bloody amazing and well worth every penny. I had totally forgotten how much I loved this and I am sure you have heard a lot about this product because everyone and their cats love this. It’s a great base for makeup and a great moisturiser on bare skin. It keeps my skin looking healthy and keeps my skin hydrated pretty much all day. I love using this after cleansing in the evening and leaving it on overnight.

Now the next two products are the ones I am most excited about because I’ve read some great reviews and I’ve heard nothing but great things about them, not to forget the wonders they claim to work. So I purchased the NIOD Sanskrit Saponins which, with continued use claims to ‘target all forms of build up, blemishes, congestion and impurities. It is suitable for all skin types. After the first use, SS leaves the skin looking nearly pore-free and its surface exceptionally cleaned, as if its radiating from within’, now if that doesn’t sell it to you, I don’t know what will. The fact that this product is made with unrefined ayurvedic ingredients is a massive selling point to me (that’s the Indian in me coming through). This is in no way a makeup remover, makeup should be removed before using this. I love that this product is kind of multi functional because it can be used as a mask (that’s my Saturday night sorted). I honestly cannot wait to use this because who the hell wouldn’t want pore free skin that looks like it is radiating from within?! 
The second NIOD product I purchased is the Mastic Must. This product is ‘a transparent masque for efficient, yet inocuous, cleaning and visible refinement of pores and impurities, resulting in immediate and maintainable visible reduction in both the number and the size of pores’. I think it’s pretty obvious that pores were the selling point for me when purchasing both these NIOD products. The way this one works is a little bizarre, which just makes me want to try it out even more. You need to apply this product to your face in the morning, leave it on for 10 minutes, rinse with warm water and although not essential it is recommended that you dry your face with a blowdryer, apparently this will help enhance the results of using this product. Crazy right? As crazy as it sounds, I will try this out and let you guys know how I get on. To say that I am excited about this is an understatement.

I also purchased The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%. This is a product I was meaning to try for a very long time. Less for the anti ageing properties and more so for the brightening properties. I’ve used it twice already this week and I can already see the difference, my skin is definitely a lot brighter and it hasn’t caused any sensitivity or breakouts. The Ordinary is such an inexpensive yet effective skincare brand as it is and I’ve never used a product from their brand that I don’t love. This has definitely got a thumbs up from me. So far so good!

And last but not least. I purchased the Mario Badescu Glycolic Eye Cream. I’m not someone that suffers from wrinkles or dark under eyes so when I purchase eye creams, I usually just purchase them to avoid getting any problems with my under eyes in the future. This cream claims to target visible signs of ageing, smooths the look of fine lines and wrinkles and encourages brighter, younger looking under eyes. I use this before I go to bed because it does make my eyes water a little. My Mum has been testing this out with me and she loves it because she has quite a bit of dryness around her eyes and she has said it’s the best eye cream she has ever used (she has tried a lot to target the dryness around her eyes, so that says something), and to be fair I can totally see the difference around her eyes. Dry skin around the eyes can be a little ageing so if you suffer from dry skin around the eyes, I would totally recommend this, plus it’s Mum approved. My skin is the total opposite to my mum’s and although my skin is oily, I still like to keep my skin hydrated and this has helped keep my eye area hydrated and bright. A little goes a long way with this one!

I had to pop this photo on here because packaging is a huge thing for me (call me sad), but can we just appreciate the packaging of the NIOD products? I mean HELLO.
