Apologies.

I feel like I'm constantly explaining myself on this blog and I'm actually finding it very hard to get back into it. I'm going to go on holiday next week and when I return I'm going to slowly try get back to being social media active and back into a regular routine. I appreciate those who have been reading my blog and have had patience with me. I won't say a set date that I will be back to normal but I'm hoping it will be before the end of the year. Those who balance a full time job with university and blogging please throw your tips my way.

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado


Eye treatments or creams tend to be a step I skip over when I'm doing my skin care. I guess it's because I haven't found a product that I really like. As I'm getting older I'm realising how important it is to start looking after my skin now to prevent damage and slow down ageing. I'm noticing on the days that I don't wear make up my under eyes seem to be the area that look the worst so I'm on a mission of trying to improve this! So after doing a lot of research I finally gave in to the good reviews and purchased the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment. I've had it recommended before but for some reason I always put off buying it.
Kiehls describe it as a creamy and rich eye treatment which is enriched with Avocado to moisturise the eye area. The formula doesn't migrate into the eyes and is Ophthalmologist and Dermatolgist tested! The first thing I noticed when I tried this was just how thick the formula was. It definitely isn't a product you'll be able to get away with wearing during the day - and if you do you'll have to wait a while for it to set. It might just be because I have quite oily skin. I can imagine those with really dry skin will absolutely adore this product. You really need the tiniest amount and that will cover under the eyes. I can see this small pot lasting absolutely ages. How I apply is it by taking a tiny bit onto my finger and dabbing it under my eyes. It feels cooling and refreshing when applied. After using it for a few weeks the area under my eyes definitely felt more moisturised and looked a lot smoother which I loved. However, as good as the product is I've found it quite hard to stick to using it. I think due to the nature of how thick the cream is I find it hard to apply as it can feel really heavy. I've tried using it in day time before and I just hated how it felt. However, as a night treatment it does feel really nice and my eyes feel smoother and more comfortable the next morning.
Personally I don't think I'll be purchasing this product again when I eventually run out but the only reason for this is because the formula is so thick. If you do have really dry skin I do recommend you give it a try but if you have oily skin like me maybe test it in store first before you decide to purchase it. You can get it for £20 from the Kiehl's Website.
What eye cream do you use? Is there one you can recommend to me?

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment


Have you ever had your hair cut and instantly thought what on earth have I done?! That was the case with me a few months ago. My hair seems to grow quite slowly so anything to speed it up I was willing to try. I had tried this product when I was younger and it didn't do much to my hair but this time round there was results that I was happy with.
So what is it? This is the Lee Stafford Hair Treatment for hair that never grows past a certain length! A mouthful right? Lee Stafford claims that...
'This gorgeous, thick, intensive treatment with PRO-GROWTH™ complex fertilises your follicles whilst going deep down into the cortex to condition and strengthen from within. Its soothing formulation reduces irritation and moisturises the scalp, providing the perfect base for hair to grow and reach its maximum potential length.' So quite a lot there. I had finished the pot and stupidly took the photos for this post afterwards so you can't see what it looks like but it's a white thick non sticky formula which is easy to apply to the hair. They advise to use this on the hair after you've shampooed for five minutes. He advises to use the product every time you was your hair until the condition of it improves then to reduce it to once a week. As I wash my hair every day I did not use this every day, however I applied it about 2-3 times a week. After initial use of this product I noticed a difference in the condition of my hair, it felt a lot softer and smoother and after a few weeks the condition of my hair was definitely improved. I started using it 2-3 times a week then when I finished the pot I started using it once a week. My hair definitely grew a lot faster than it had before - I feel like this is down to the product really helping the condition of my hair which in turn helped it grow. Like I said previously it did nothing to my hair but now it has been working! If you do have the type of hair that just doesn't seem to grow do give this a try! 
You can get it from Boots for £8.49 but there's usually some sort of offer on so look at for those. Have you tried? What do you use for hair treatment?

Relapse and Coping | Let's talk Mental Health


Well it's been a bit of a while since I have posted anything on this blog hasn't it? I thought about writing a really brief message and leaving it at that but that felt almost slightly fake and I promised to be as honest as I can be. I spoke about Depression in a previous post and that has a huge impact on why I have been neglecting the blog so much recently. If you don't want to read this post feel free to skip it, my normal beauty/lifestyle posts should be resuming from this week. I'm going to steer away from having set days etc to stick to as I feel that will be adding too much pressure on myself. I will try get at least one post up a week until I feel more in control of it. Thank you for those who have followed this blog for a while and all your support - and new followers hey! Warning: this will be a rambly post! I apologise in advance. There is no structure to this post, I am just sitting in front of my laptop just typing so if it is jumping from parts to parts I haven't edited it further.

Depression for me is like a cloud that lingers but never quite fully goes away. It comes back when you feel down and it takes a lot of strength to not let it take over. For me personally the start of the year has been quite tough and I think I've only been processing what I've been feeling over the past few years in the last few months and it's just got on top of me. I do have a chronic headache disorder which impacts what I do majorly and it has resulted in me having to leave my nursing degree and just put a huge halt in my plans. It's funny though I started the blog (originally hdotxo) when I was getting really ill and it kept my mind occupied. So I left my first university with a diploma in health studies instead of my nursing degree. Since then I have tried to continue to finish my degree in health studies which I've had to stop once and restart last September. Not quite how I planned life to go! But that's life for you - forever throwing curveballs.
Without giving you a whole life story I just had a lot of personal problems at the start of the year. One being having to cut out someone who has been a major part of my life for reasons I can't explain much on here. I think that's what caused the relapse initially as that person was my main support lifeline. It's amazing how much we can depend on people. So that was one part of the problem. Another was my treatment for my headaches have not been as successful recently causing implications on progression at university. I've somehow managed to finish most my modules with my dissertation remaining. I also was let go at work because I had not been in for so long - not so much of an issue now as I do have a new job I'm now waiting to start.
But it's almost like all those things big or small were just adding up and suddenly about a month ago I just felt like I was drowning in all these negative thoughts. I'm going to be completely honest and say I got to a stage for a good few days where I just didn't want to move from bed and kept saying to myself what is the point? But somehow I have managed to kind of get out of this. I'm slowly making progress on improving. I know it's different for everyone but for me I feel like Depression will be one of those things that will never completely go away, there will be moments where I have patches like that. I just need to find what works for me and I will explain that below. I know everyone is different and what I suggest might not be helpful at all for some but it's worth saying I think. So here goes...
I think the main thing for me which is a lot easier said than done was reminding myself I have got through this before and I worked too hard to get out of feeling that low to fall back into it. I know what you're thinking - that sounds great but it isn't that simple. I know it's not but it's as if that little bit of motivation was coming from the fact that I never wanted to feel as low as I have done in the past. The thought of hitting rock bottom and the reminder of how that feels was enough to make me go you know what? No this isn't going to happen. 
Another major point for me was acceptance in a way. This is hard to explain but similar to the previous it was reminding myself it's okay to feel down, it's okay to feel completely overwhelmed and feel like enough is enough. The feelings are normal. I've accepted that it will always be there and some days or weeks, even months it will affect me more than others. And that's fine but now I'm more aware of it I know I need to try fight it more. Part of the acceptance for me is remembering it's fine to completely break down and cry. It's okay to stay in bed and just sleep for a day. It's just stopping it becoming a habit which you can't break. This moves onto the next though which is trying to keep as busy as I can. I found this the hardest, I didn't want to see people, I didn't want to be sociable, after spending hours and hours on the laptop for university I didn't even want to look at my blog and I just wasn't feeling inspired. But even getting myself outside for a hour a day or a 10 minute walk. Something to just break that routine of not wanting to do anything helped loads. Now I'm trying to keep focused on what I do have in my diary and if I don't have anything planned what can I do which will get me some fresh air. Sure this didn't work everyday but every single time I went outside for a while it helped. Every single time. 
Again following on from the previous another thing I've been doing which is new to me is talking. There is amazing support out there. As I've said I don't speak to the person who was my main support so I'm teaching myself to speak to friends and other people about it. It's okay to talk. It's important to talk. Even if you don't talk - letting someone know you're struggling so you're not alone is major. It's made me realised I'm truly lucky to have some amazing people in my life I wouldn't change for the world. Some understand more than others but even if I saw someone and just spoke to them about anything besides what was going on with me it helped. It distracted my mind. 
Lastly probably one of the most important parts that helped me was looking after myself. Physically as well as mentally. Something as small as a bath and pampering helped sometimes. Making myself exercise as cliche as it is has helped. For me it was completely about keeping the mind occupied. Whether this would be by reading a book, binge watching a series, doing yoga, anything that distracted me from my thoughts it helped. 
I think if you're struggling with depression the most important thing to know is you're doing okay. Whether all you've managed to do is get out of bed or got up to go to the loo you will be fine. Just try to talk, it's the most important thing. People are there for you and support is everywhere. You're not alone and a lot of people are going through the same. Little steps. I can't say that I'm feeling completely better or I'm out of this relapse phase but this past week has definitely been much much better. Also, if you do want to talk about it more just private message me on twitter or any social media platform. We need to be talking more about mental health and ending the stigma associated with it. 

So after that extremely long ramble I will be trying to get my blog back to normal or back into it. I have missed it I just didn't want to post posts that I didn't fully commit to. I promised honesty and that's what I'm going to keep at. Thank you again for your patience and all the positive energy everyone has been spreading.

None Beauty June Favourites AND 5 Favourite Bloggers


I'm still trying to process that we are halfway through the year. How? I know they said time goes faster as you get older but this is taking the mick slightly! Thought I would do a non beauty favourites and share the blogs I'm loving to read at the moment like I did in my February post! It seemed to go down well so here goes! 

My Bed of Nails Mat (Full Review Click Here) - The bath hasn't been working properly so I have been using this Mat more often at the moment for my back and neck. I've had back and neck pain for years and this mat (apart from osteopathy treatment and really hot baths) seems to be the only thing that helps. I use it for 30 minutes when the pain is bad and it works a dream. I also sleep better when I've used it. I've found as well using the mat after yoga makes it work even better. If you have back/neck pains I definitely recommend it. 

Letters To My Fanny by Cherry Healey - This book popped up on my recommendations on Amazon and I'm so glad I purchased it. It's a very easy read which has humour and so many relateable stories! Don't be put off by the name - it's about various things women go through and there's a mixture of seriousness with oh dear god no moments. If you want something light to read which will make you laugh I recommend it - might be a funny one to read on a commute though! The front cover will definitely raise eyebrows. 

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (Full Review Click Here) - I've mentioned this quite a few times on the blog but I've been using this a lot recently. I've been away a few times and this has helped me sleep well! It's such a relaxing scent. There is a full review available for more information.

One Tree Hill - Oh I love One Tree Hill. I think because it started when I was 13 and I've watched it through until it finished I will always have an attachment with it. There's just something so comforting about it which I love. Plus this series is one of my favourites I think. Any other One Tree Hill fans out there? I can't be the only one obsessed! 

The Michalaks Family Video Diaries - I used to be obsessed with watching beauty youtube videos on end - I still do sometimes but the only videos I religiously watch now are the Michalaks. If you haven't seen their vlogs I really recommend them. The editing is gorgeous and it's just so nice to watch. Plus Hannah and Stef definitely have such a funny sense of humour. Seriously go watch them. GO. 


5 FAVOURITE BLOGS/PEOPLE:

Pale Aspiration - Amy has a beautiful blog which is full of amazing photography! I have serious envy. Her posts are a mix of lifestyle and beauty. She has come such a long way from where she started and I'm so proud of her. I love going over to her blog to read. She recently posted a Healthy Cookie Dough Chocolate Balls recipe which just looks divine! Go say hello to her - she's a real sweetheart!

Class & Glitter - I have been following Parie for ages! She's such a lovely girl and I love reading her blog. There's a mixture of posts so there's something for everyone. She's very honest and down to earth which makes reading her posts even better. She also seems to have a good eye for beauty bargains! Also I must warn you - she will make you want to buy any beauty product she's talking about.

Absolutely Ellie - Ellie has such a lovely blog with beautiful photography. Her reviews are straight to the point and honest. When she has a new post I'm always interested - she's one of those beauty bloggers who could probably sell you anything. She's genuine and sweet which comes across in her blogging and her social media!

Once Upon A Fibro Time - Those of you who speak to me on social media will know I'm a spoonie. If you're not sure what a spoonie is look it up! If you do and you're not reading Becka's blog where have you been?! She writes honest, raw posts which reflect spoonie life very well. It's hard to balance how much you want to expose when you have chronic conditions but she's doing amazing. She's also become a good friend through blogging. Go tell her I say hi!

Bambi's Beauty Blog - It's Emily again! Just wanted to mention her blog again as it's probably the one I visit the most. All her posts are so real and relatable that I finish reading them going you're so right. Her How to Survive After University post was exactly how I'm feeling and if you have just finished uni I really do suggest you go have a read. All her posts are written well and you can tell she's just that type of person you could talk with for hours!

Go send the bloggers a bit of love! What are your favourites this month?

Beauty June Favourites


How are we half way through the year? I'm not okay with this. It's gone far too quickly. Slow. Down. Please. Anyway here's the products I've been loving over the last month (or few months, haven't done a favourites post in a while!)

Flora by Gucci - Gorgeous Gardenia | £55 - This is one of my favourite perfumes for Spring/Summer, probably because it is so floral. It has notes of red berries, pear, white gardenia, frangipani and patchouli. It's a very light floral sweet scent. I haven't got anything else like it so I'm unsure how else to explain it or what to compare to. However, if you like your floral scents I'm pretty sure you will like this! 

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream | £26 - I usually love using Laura Merciers Tinted Moisturiser when it's warm. However, I've noticed it's been transferring a lot even with powder so I was on the look out for something new. I have only had this for about a month but love it so far. The colour does not suit me 100% so I have to mix with other products but I do believe they're bringing more shades out soon. I will have a full review of this up soon.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic in Love Glow | £30 - This is a product I've had for ages which has been gathering dust in my make up drawer but I've recently discovered it and I'm in love. It is really pigmented so I have to be really light handed with it. It's such a gorgeous pink blusher which applies so easily and lasts all day. I really do believe Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong, all her products that I have tried are absolutely amazing. I also might have done a lipstick order while I was looking for the link for this product. Woops.

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Beso | £15 - There's something about lipglosses I just hate. I think it's the sticky formula and I much prefer a matte lip than a glossy one so I tend to avoid them! However, this is one that I do love. I really don't wear lipgloss that often but when I have no make up on and I want a bit of something I reach for this. I'm sure I'll be wearing it on holiday later on this year too. It's such a comfortable formula which is easy to apply, the colour pay off is good too - this is a gorgeous pink flattering shade.

MAC Lip Pencil in Soar | £12:50 - If you're a beauty lover or just on social media I'm sure you know everything there is to know about this lip liner after all the hype around it. That being said it is a beautiful shade. It's described as a mid-tone pinkish brown. On my skin tone it's definitely more a pink than a brown but that's why I love it. It goes amazing with MAC Mehr lipstick and MAC Whirl lipstick. The lip pencils are really drying but they do last ages. Make sure you've moisturised your lips well if you want to use a MAC lip pencil! If you can get hold of this shade do - it's beautiful for the Summer. 

Barry M Super Mani 7 in 1 Treatment | £3.99 - Anyone else guilty of biting their nails when they were younger? I am and I'm paying for it now. My nails are in a shocking condition and they grow weird but this treatment helps them strengthen and grow evenly. It contains lovely ingredients like keratin, argan oil and vitamin E to help nourish and protect the nails. It dries quickly and sits well as a base coat too. Completely affordable as well.

Tarte Eyelash Curlers | £15 (with mascara) - I don't know how I was getting lift in my eyelashes before I discovered eyelash curlers. I've been using tarte eyelash curlers for about six months and I absolutely love them. It's only when I went without them in May that I realised how much of a difference they were making. Now that I have them back I'm back to having lifted, curled lashes which last all day. Really do recommend these! Just a bit of a pain to get hold of in the United Kingdom.

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette | £18 - This has been the only palette I have reached for recently. Any time I've been away I have been packing this. It just has the perfect warm toned shades. There's enough shades to create a natural look, smokey look and a heavy dramatic look. The quality is amazing for the price too - they last all day and blend a dream. I haven't even touched my Make Up Geek shadows in a while as I'm always reaching for this. It's such a light palette for travel too - takes up hardly any room. Completely recommend it!

What have been your favourite products this month? Any recommendations?

Beach Bag Essentials


Summer is officially here although you wouldn't think it looking outside at this gloomy weather. However, many people are jetting away soon so I thought it would be a perfect time to share what I have in my beach bag (for those who are not going away for a while don't worry! My holiday isn't until September, so I'm still counting down!). The lovely lot from Adore Me contacted me about a hashtag they are doing on instagram called #BeachDayMusts and asked if I wanted to get involved which I was very excited about! I've been wanting to do a post like this for a while so seemed like the perfect time. Adore Me has some beautiful lingerie and swim wear - I can't wait to do an order but I definitely recommend you have a look around. I will be doing an order soon and will keep you updated on my thoughts! The link is here if you want to go have a browse!

So onto what's inside this beach bag! My bag is a bucket bag from Hollister which was from a few years ago. But I prefer it to the standard beach bag as it's more compact and you can just chuck everything in. If I was going to spend the whole day at the beach I would probably carry a lot more with me but these items are just my absolute essentials! A lot of these products I carry in my handbag so it was just a case of transferring!

BEAUTY ESSENTIALS: SPF is vital when you're spending time in the sun. It's so important to look after your skin! I have tanned dark skin so I tend to avoid the sun but for those who love laying in the sun please layer up on SPF - even if you don't you need to protect your skin! This Nivea Sun Protect SPF 30 Lip Balm is so comfortable on the lips and easy to apply. It does leave a bit of a white mask but I wear lipstick or lip gloss over so it isn't too obvious. For my actual face I have recently discovered Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel Cream. This sits so comfortably on the skin, it has light to medium coverage depending on how much you build it up. I just forget I have it on and it's suppose to keep your face hydrated each time you use it. I'm loving it so far and I'm going to be reaching for it in the summer loads. Another new product I have purchased recently is the Britney Spears Maui Fantasy Perfume - I absolutely adore the scent of this. It makes me think of cocktails and Summer and is such an easy scent to wear. It has notes of passion fruit, hibiscus, orange blossom, vanilla and coconut. The bottle is stunning and the colour is beautiful too. I usually steer away from celebrity perfumes but this one is so good for day to day. I also recommend getting a SPF for face and body - I don't have one that I'm loving right now so I haven't added it. Any recommendations would be welcome!

ENTERTAINMENT ESSENTIALS: A good book is vital for a beach trip in my opinion. It's so nice to lay in the sun (or the shade in my case) and have a read. It takes mind off current events and let's you get enveloped into a different world. Such a nice little escape! Music is a must too - I carry round my iPod with me pretty much everywhere and really do believe music always helps! The most recent book I've read was Me Before You by Jojo Moyes which was such a gorgeous emotional book. I definitely recommend it. The film done it justice too. Any book recommendations through them my way too! 

MISC ESSENTIALS: Sunglasses go without saying! I need to order some contact lenses so I can wear any sunglasses I want. These ones are from Detour and I just love the design of them. Hats are vital too but I completely forgot to add some to the picture! Sandals are also vital if you are planning to walk round the beach - easy to get off ready for that run into the sea if you wish. These ones are from the sale in New Look from a few years ago. Water is also a must - if you're spending time in the sun it's so important to stay hydrated! I always have a bottle of water wherever I go. Tissues are always important too - you just never know when you'll need some. I usually have hand sanitiser too but couldn't find any for this shot! The Soap & Glory ones are my favourite as they smell gorgeous. Another absolute must is Wet Wipes whether your feet are covered in sand or you want to wipe your hands to have some food - definite need! 

So those are my essentials for the beach. What are yours?

Daily Face | How much is my face worth?


I'm starting to realise that I wear the same products over and over and rarely mention them on the blog. I do share more on my instagram but not so much on here. So I've decided to talk through the products that I use daily (or when I can be bothered to put make up on to make myself look presentable!) talk briefly through them and add the cost of them at the end. I have a feeling it's going to be extremely pricey! I really have a high end make up addiction. Woops! I'll try to list the products in the order I would apply them.

BASE | Rimmel Fix & Protect Primer [£6.99]: I have tons of primers to get through but I actually picked this up when I went away and realised I forgot to pack a primer and a SPF. It's a white thick texture which takes quite a while to work into the skin - I'm guessing that's the SPF's doing though! I do like it and it does do a okay job however, I don't think I'll be repurchasing it when I finish as I have other primers I prefer more. 

BASE | Clinique CC Moisture Surge [£28.00]: I picked this up a while ago and I'm finally getting to the end of the product! It has lasted absolute ages. I've noticed it is very cool toned and I'm warm toned so I find myself relying on my blusher and bronzer to make my face look less grey. However, it is very moisturising and incredibly light on the skin! It also contains SPF 35 - a really good product for this time of year! I have started using this in combination with the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and it looks so much better so I think I will be sad when I finish it. 

BASE: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer [£22.00]: I seem to have a very awkward skin tone. Drug store products seem to be either too light or too dark - no inbetween. I could buy two products and mix but I find that such a waste of money. So after a lot of searching for a product that will suit my skin tone I came across this. This is hands down my favourite concealer I've tried so far. It blends in so easily, doesn't crease and just helps cover up all those pesky breakouts and imperfections. It is pricey but it lasts absolute ages! If you struggle with finding a concealer that matches do go to a counter and see if this works! I wouldn't be without it now! 

BASE: Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer [£5.99]: I use this concealer under my eyes and any area that I want to brighten up. It's such a lightweight, easily blendable and comfortable concealer. It never creases and just sits so well with other products. I really wish there was darker shades to use for actual concealing but I'm happy with it as a under eye concealer product right now. If you haven't tried it to I really recommend you to do so! It's such a good product. 

BASE | Benefit Fine One One [£23.50]: This shouldn't come as a surprise if you read my blog regularly or follow my instagram. I absolutely adore this product, it gives such a gorgeous glow and flush of colour on the cheeks. It's easily built up for a more bold look as well. I did do a review which you can find here if you want to read more. 

BASE | Benefit Hoola Bronzer [£23.50]: This is actually rather light on my skin but I love the little bit of colour it gives. Especially as the CC cream is so cool toned it makes my face look a lot warmer. If you're paler than me I'm sure you will love this product, I don't think I've come across anyone who has tried this that didn't like it. There's tons of reviews in the blogsphere so I won't talk too much about it! 

BASE | Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder [£3.99]: I always get a oily t zone so powdering is an absolute must for me! All Rimmel powders have been amazing for me - I do go for the translucent shade as it's just easier to blend in with my make up. It's very fine and doesn't leave the make up looking fake or heavy. It's a really good affordable powder which does the job well! 

EYES | Benefit Gimme Brow [£18:50]: I get my eyebrows threaded quite regularly so I don't like adding too much product onto my brows, just something to keep it in place and stop it going a bit crazy. This product does the job well - it adds a tiny bit of colour whilst providing a good hold for the hairs. The brush is also small enough to get to those annoying eyebrow hairs that can be hard to get to! They are soon releasing new packaging and new shades so I'm hoping the formula will still be the same but if not I might have to find an alternative!

EYES | Bourjois Color Band Eyeshadow/Liner Stick in 02 Brun Dadaiste [£5.99]: I don't like putting much on my eyes in the day time and I find that this product adds a little colour and shine to the lids! This shade is such a beautiful brown which I think would suit most skin tones. It lasts absolute ages and blends a dream! I'm usually switching it up on my eyes but this stays put in my make up bag. 

EYES | Benefit Roller Lash Mascara [£19.50]: I'm yet to find a mascara that I absolutely adore and can't do without. However, this is a very good one. It lengthens and adds a bit of volume which is perfect for the day time. I love the wand on this as it just catches all the lashes! It lasts all day and has been what I have been using since it was released. 

LIPS | Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Hollywood Honey [£16.00]: I can't believe I've only started wearing lip liners in the last year. I'm absolutely obsessed with them now and can't imagine wearing lipstick without a liner. This is by far my favourite one. The formula glides on and doesn't drag on the lips. It sits comfortably and lasts ages. This is a gorgeous dark nude on me and seems to go with most lipsticks I wear (not bold ones!). Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong in my eyes! 

LIPS | Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita 2 [$20.00]: I got a set of both Lolita shades last Christmas and have been obsessed with Lolita 2. It's described as a terra cotta nude and is just this gorgeous pinky brown shade on me. I love it and use it as a base if I want to wear a nude or pink lipstick. Lasts ages and wears evenly so you don't have any awkward lines on your lips! I wish it was more readily available in the United Kingdom! 

LIPS | MAC Mehr or Whirl [£15.50]: MAC lipsticks are one of my favourite formulas for matte lipsticks. They apply so well and last ages. I have been reaching for Mehr a lot recently which is a gorgeous pink which I have not put down since I purchased it. I think it's the fastest I've ever gone through a lipstick so far, there's not much left! However, if I want a bit more of a brown toned nude I go for Whirl. They're both gorgeous shades and I recommend you trying them at a counter if you can. 

SET | L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist Setting Spray [£7.99]: Finally to finish the whole look I spray this setting spray. I really disliked this product when I first started using it and realised there was loads of white particles that was showing on my skin. However, I found the trick is to shake it for about 30 seconds and apply straight away and no white particles! It gives a very matte finish so definitely not for any with dry skin as it may cling onto patches on the skin! However, if you have oily skin like me this will be your best friend. It really does lasts ages and I use it more than my Urban Decay setting spray. 

I've just realised that most those products are high end! I tend to switch it up every now and then so will do a daily face post sometime soon too, probably near autumn! I'm also realising how much Benefit products I use haha, that I blame to my friend who used to work at Benefit. So all these products add up to £211.52. Crazy when I look at it that way! I really do have a high end make up brands addiction, ah well! What products do you use daily?

Thank you for those who are still reading my blog and for your patience. If you don't follow me on social media you will probably not know why I have been so absent. I'm in the final year of my degree so my focus is completely on my dissertation/thesis. That should all be done by mid-June all going well and the blog will be back up and running then!

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray


Sleep. Oh I love hate relationship with it. Sometimes I sleep amazing and love it but most the time I have weird messed up sleep. I've had insomnia in the past - been on tablets and all the rest but just stopped taking them as I got fed up taking tablets all the time. So the next search was for things or remedies that were more natural. This sleep spray popped up on a  lot of instagrams and blogs I follow so I finally gave into the hype (over a year ago now!) and haven't looked back.. 
It's described as a miracle solution for a good nights sleep. It is infused with lavender, vetivert and wild camomile oils which leaves a gorgeous relaxing scent. I spray about 4-5 times over my pillow about half an hour before I go to bed and I can honestly say every time I've used this I have fallen asleep so much easier. It honestly does make a difference for me. I don't use it often as I don't want to get used to it but I have a smaller travel version which I take away whenever I'm away or for flights. It helps calm my down so might be something to consider if you have anxiety. The actual scent isn't overwhelming at all - I'm not the biggest fan of lavender scents but this one has the right balance in my opinion.
If you have issues with sleep or anxiety I would definitely give this a go. It is very soothing. I have the limited edition which is £30 for 250ml or you can get a normal one for £16 for 75ml. There's also a baby version if you want something to try for your children.

Re-Gen Cream Review


Finding the perfect skin care routine is a life long task I swear. I'm yet to find a routine that works for me perfectly however, I have found a cream that really helps and that would be this little beauty! Bit of background I have combination skin which is made up of oily t-zone and dry skin elsewhere. I also get spots a lot and get scarring easy. Everyone's skin is different so it might not work for you but it's really helped me!
Re-Gen cream is described as a specialist treatment for stretch marks, scars, dry skin and blemishes. It includes PCL liquid for skin regeneration. It also has Vitamin E, lavender and chamomile to help calm down the skin. It's not irritating in the slightest and hasn't got an offensive smell. I can vaguely smell lavender when I apply it but that's about it. The formula is lovely too - not sticky in the slightest. It's like a lotion; really light and sinks into the skin so well and quick. The smell does linger for a little while but when it's sunk into the skin you don't notice it. I apply it twice daily during both my skin routines and it sits well under make up too. It has many similar ingredients as Bio Oil so it gives a lot of the same benefits that does. I picked this mainly for the scarring on my forehead from previous spot and I have noticed a difference. The scars have started to fade slightly - I'm not sure if they will ever completely go away but there's definitely an improvement. It's also kept my skin really hydrated which I love - there has been no strange dry patches! I've used this twice daily for about two months now and I'm only halfway through the pot so I can see it lasting quite well and for the price that's so good. I believe Aldi sell it in store but I purchased mine from Amazon for £6.99! 

Have you tried this? What do you think? Have you got any suggestions for scarring?

Favourite Spring Lipsticks


Now the clocks have changed in the United Kingdom it really does feel like Spring is in the air. I'm not one for changing my make up much when the seasons change - however I do tend to reach for lighter lipsticks than the usual deep berry shades I usually obsess over. So I have for you my five favourite lipsticks for this season. I will talk about each shade briefly going left to right in the photos. 

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Fiery (£7.99): The formula of these lipsticks is probably one of my favourites from the drug store. It's so easy to apply as it is a balm formula but it's also matte too but not drying. Plus it smells so minty and fresh! Just wish they would expand their matte range even more. This colour is a gorgeous light berry - I told you I haven't given up the colour yet. However, it does apply quite sheer so if you want a heavy look this might not be the one for you as it takes a while to build up! 

Rimmel The Only One Lipstick in Under My Spell (£6.99): Now this colour is probably the darkest one but going on from the previous lipstick this is a deeper shade of that one. It's incredbily moisturising and easy to apply. Doesn't drag on the lips at all - I wouldn't say it's a matte lipstick; it has quite a satin type finish with a beautiful shine. I would get the lip liner if you want a long lasting look as this does wear off after a few hours. However, it is incredibly easy to reapply. 

MAC Amorous (£15.50) - This is definitely my most used lipstick in Spring. It's a gorgeous cranberry pink. It seems to be such a good pink nude for me personally and I think that's why I love it so much. It's so flattering with minimal make up but also looks amazing for occasion make up. If you want a new pink and like the satin finish of MACs lipsticks go give this a go at the counter!

MAC Plumful (£15.50) - Another MAC lipstick I know but there's just something about the formula of MAC lipsticks that are amazing. I haven't tried much other make up from them but I adore their lipsticks. I actually don't use this as much as I should but it's such a beautiful light rose plum shade. It just seems to be one of that shades that flatters most skin tones - everyone who I've seen try it it looks amazing on them! Again give it a go at the counter if you can. It's a lustre finish so it's not drying on the lips at all. 

NARS Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil (£19:00) - This lipstick I received in a set from Sephora and I've only recently got round to trying it. I think it would be a perfect nude for anyone with pale skin or possibly olive skin. For me it leaves a gorgeous light pink shade on my lips without washing me out and I love it for that. It's so hard to find light pinks that don't wash out my skin tone. Because it is a satin finish it's very comfortable on the lips and doesn't dry it out at all as well as leaving a gorgeous shine. It's truly a beautiful shade if you want a light pink that's not a baby pink! 

What are your favourite lipsticks for Spring?

Benefit Fine One One


I'm having a bit of a moment with Benefit at the moment. I'm not the biggest fan of some of their newer products but there are some products I would be lost without. Hoola and Fine One One are probably two of my absolute favourite products. But this product I adore and I've used it since it was released so I thought I would let you know about it - especially as it seems to be a product that's not mentioned often!
It's described as a sheer brightening cheek and lip colour to instantly lift, shape and pop! Even though I believe you can use it on your lips I only have once and I wasn't a fan so I use this just for my cheeks! It has three gorgeous shades; a pink champagne, watermelon and a coral pink which just makes a beautiful colour combined. I apply this directly onto my cheeks and blend with a brush. You can blend with fingers as well but I just prefer the more natural finish when using a brush. It just leaves this soft gorgeous colour which just gives a lift and finishes off a look. I love it more in the Spring and Summer as I've never been a fan of heavy blusher whereas this one is so sheer. It's easy to build up too! Because it has the pink champagne too it adds a little bit of a highlight which is perfect if you don't want to layer on the make up. I've had friends use it too and it looks stunning on different skin tones. It's always in my make up bag and is just the perfect minimal effort touch to a gorgeous look. You can get it for £23.50 from the Benefit website. 

Have you tried this? What's your favourite blusher?

Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara vs Roller Lash Mascara


Benefit Cosmetics is probably the first high end beauty brand I tried so I am a sucker for some of their products as there's nostalgic value. I used to use They're Real all the time when I was younger then I stopped and then when Roller Lash I went crazy. Now I have both and have been using both for so long I though I could give you my thoughts on both mascaras and which would I would recommend.

Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara £19:50: Now you might notice the lovely crystals on mine. It was a limited edition I'm afraid so don't think you can get this anymore. This is a love/hate mascara I believe. It's one of Benefits best selling products and it can be amazing for those who like the specific type of lashes they create. It claims to lengthen, curl, volumize, lift and seperates. So the works really! It definitely adds a ridiculous amount of volume and it does lengthen it. I love using this when I need huge powerful lashes as they definitely make a statement. HOWEVER, it does give that clumpy look with the lashes. Something I'm really not a fan of. Personally it really isn't for me but that's just personal preference. I have really tried to get back into liking it but it's not working. There was a point when I was younger I loved that spidery clumpy lashes so I have loved it previously, just not anymore. But a lot of my friends absolutely swear by this mascara. If you haven't tried it all I can recommend is get yourself down to your local Benefit counter and ask them to apply it and also for you to apply it yourself so you have an idea if it would work for you.

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling Mascara £19:50: Now this was released about this time last year and they had free samples in Elle UK magazine which I thought was amazing. I picked up two and it was an amazing way to test it before deciding whether it was right for me.As you can see from the wand it's very different to the they're real wand. It's more curved and has smaller bristles. Benefit says it has a unique hock and roll brush which plans to separate, lift and curl. The formula contains provitamin B5 and serin which has lash conditioning benefits. I absolutely love this mascara and it's replaced previous favourites I've had. It lengthens my lashes so much whilst separating them so they don't look clumpy. No spidery lashes! You can build it up for a more dramatic look. If I'm after a more evening look I combine it with Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and they work a dream together. As for giving a curl I tried it without eyelash curlers and it added a bit of curl but nothing dramatic. I have to curl my lashes before as mine are very straight lashes. If you're after length and separation without clumps this one is for you! Very good for day to day make up without too much drama.

So overall as you can tell I prefer the Roller Lash mascara but they are both good mascaras. It just depends what kind of look you are after! I'm going to continue trying They're Real and hopefully I will fall in love with it again. Have you tried these? Which one do you prefer?

15 Things I wish I knew when I was 15


I have loads of beauty posts coming up in the next few weeks so I though I would throw in a lifestyle post. I'm 25 this year and I find it so strange when I reflect back at 15 and how much I wish someone would have shaken me and told me all this! Hope you can relate or avoid these in the future haha.

1: Leave the eyebrows alone: This is probably one of the most common things most beauty bloggers will say but it's so true. Luckily I never plucked my eyebrows, the first time I had them done was away and being asian I had them threaded but I really wish I didn't touch them. They were a lovely natural shape and they've never grown back to the same thickness. So just leave them alone! Unless you're reading for all the maintenance to come then go for it.  But do your research!

2: Labels, Stereotypes, names - they don't define you: I remember when I was 15 there was that immense pressure to fit in and I can only imagine it's so much worse now with all the access to social media and all the rest. I felt like I couldn't admit liking certain music or certain things because I had to fit in. Don't worry about all that, like what you like - the people who love you will stay. 

3: Trust your instincts: I wish I knew this so much earlier. If something doesn't feel right - it probably isn't! For whatever it's concerning trust your gut instinct as it's rarely wrong. It's never been wrong for me but I've gone against it and regretted it.

4: The friends that matter will always be there: This is a huge one for me. I found it hard to make friends and hung around with an enormous group when I was 15, however I talk to none of them now. My closest friends from school are the ones who were always there regardless. The ones you met up with and you didn't have to go anywhere. You can just stay at home and chat! 

5: Study hard! GCSEs are so so important. I didn't realise how much it would impact what I do now but anything you do they ask about GCSEs (or whatever the equivalent is!) Work hard as it's your future, no one elses. You have to do it for you. 

6: It's okay to not know what you want to do: I'm still clueless. Again I think there's so much pressure on having to know what you want to do by the time you get to college but the reality is life is unpredictable and forever changing - just make sure whatever you do you enjoy it or it's to help you get to where you want to be. Don't do something because someone told you to as it will be harder to keep motivated! 

7: Make the most of your Summer: Oh how I would love to have that long holiday. Make the most of the long holiday! Spend it with friends and family. Make the most of the sunshine and the beautiful days. Get off bloody MSN and get out. Well less MSN now moreso Twitter haha.

8: Step away from the lilac eyeliner: What was I thinking? Seriously? Lilac eyeliner. On it's own. No other make up. It's not a good look Hana step away. 

9: Some people will never change, move on: Those people who made life difficult? Likelihood is you will never come across them again. Some people are just bad eggs, they don't change. Learn to ignore and avoid. Easier said I know!

10: Everyone has their own problems: That girl that looks amazing who looks like she's got it all together... She has her own problems. We all do. You can't judge someone just by looking at them! Confidence is key.

11: Don't do something just because your friends are doing it: Again goes back to gut instincts if something doesn't feel right don't do it. And if they are real friends they won't pressure you in the slightest.

12: It's okay to be the quiet one: I was that awkward kid in the class who hardly spoke and found it really hard to even speak in class. It's okay to be like that, other people feel like that too! But things will improve with time. I still struggle now but it's improved because I know I'm not the only one who feels that way.

13: Mums are usually right: Every single person my mum said was a bad person I'm not friends with anymore. Any advice she gave even though I ignored it at the time, I wish I hadn't. She has a wealth of knowledge. Maybe not admit it to her but do listen to her.

14: Bullying: It's not ok. I got bullied many times at school but I never spoke up. I really wish I had so people knew how I felt as I really dreaded going into school for so long. Don't be afraid to speak up, no one has the right to treat you badly. You deserve better. 

15: You don't need to completely know who you are: We grow and we learn. Cheesy and obvious I know. If I was the same person I was ten years ago things would be very different. Hell if things were the same it was five years ago things would also be very different. Life challenges you, things are forever changing. You are forever discovering things about yourself and that's okay! 

Right that got a bit deep haha. What do you wish you knew when you were in your teen years?

Non Beauty February Favourites and 5 Favourite Bloggers


So I did my beauty favourites for February on Monday so I thought it was only right to do non beauty favourites. Again, I'm not sure if this will be a monthly thing but we shall see! I also have five favourite bloggers at the moment as I love discovering other blogs through people too. Plus they are all amazing so they deserve a shout out!

Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern: This is probably one of my favourite books. If you love a romance with a bit of comedy as well as an easy read this is definitely worth picking up. I actually ended up reading all her books when I was away in Nepal and she's a fabulous writer. This remains my favourite though. I forgot how much I enjoyed it and how easy it is to get completely lost in a book which was nice. I think we're so switched on to technology that we forget how it feels to truly switch off. It's also been made into a film recently and it's really good. Definitely recommend you see it if you're more a movie type!

Netflix: I have a love hate relationship with Netflix. Sometimes I end up spending way too much time on there whereas other times I can't find anything to watch it drives me mad. However, lately I've been really enjoying it when I've been unwinding. Obviously loving the new series of Pretty Little Liars. But also watching Gossip Girl again. Tempted to watch House too, but any recommendations are welcome!

Kinder Surprise Mini Eggs: I know it's Easter soon but what really excites me is these Kinder Surprise Mini Eggs. Kinder surprise is my favourite chocolate but it's not so socially acceptable buying the egg without a little kid by my size so I may just stock up on loads of these mini eggs and hope that will last me a while. Okay let's be real it won't last long at all. I'm really trying to cut down on chocolate and sweet things so one here and there should be grand right? They are tiny of course.

Hannah Maggs Eye Mask: I have issues with insomnia which comes and goes but my room has curtains which let the light in. Now this usually isn't a problem but when I've had next to no sleep and no plans for the day (very rare) but this blocks out the light and helps a lot. It's not uncomfortable at all and it's gorgeous too! You can purchase it here.

Oranges: Again trying to get healthy and alternate all my guilty pleasures. I'm absolutely loving the big oranges and leaving them in the fridge so they are nice and cold. Perfect! Any tips for anyone who struggles with fruit? Please throw them my way!

5 FAVOURITE BLOGS/PEOPLE:

Rinica Writes - A blog I've followed since I started blogging. I love how clear her photographs are with descriptive reviews about products. It's also nice to find someone with a similar skin tone! I'm always there when she has a new post up and forever getting her advice on different products! She's one of my favourites which I'm sure she knows and probably one of the blogs I always visit.

Bambi's Beauty Blog -  Don't be fooled by the name, it's not all about beauty! I love Em's tips posts and lifestyle posts. She's forever putting up tips and positivity on her blog. I'm always there when she has a new post! She's also one of the nicest bloggers I've come across! Such a sweetheart. One of my favourite posts is her getting organised and being productive post.

Amy J Walters - If you have suffered from mental health issues or you do currently do Amy is your girl. She's full of honest, open and insightful posts. She's an absolute doll and so easy to relate to. There's also beauty thrown in if you love beauty like me too! She also hosts #MindsMatter chats on Tuesdays at 7pm. Get involved - makes such a difference to talk to people going through similar issues! We need to start talking about Mental health more and reduce the stigma!

The CurvaceousVegan - Amie is such a kind soul and it comes through in all her posts. With a wide variety of posts you are bound to find something that interests you. I personally enjoy her Saturday posts and catching up with her week and what she's looking forward to ahead as well as people recommendations! You just feel like you know her! I love her layout too and how easy it is to read her blog - plus how cute is that header?


Classic Rogue - Zoe is probably one of my favourite beauty bloggers out there. With stunning photos and descriptive and in depth reviews she's everything you want in a beauty blogger. She definitely makes me want to buy everything that she writes about! My wishlist is forever increasing, thanks Zoe haha.

Beauty February Favourites


I've never done a monthly favourites before but there was a LOT of products I was loving this month so I thought I would share them with you. I'll have a non beauty favourites up on Wednesday along with blogs I've been enjoying recently. 

Charlotte Tilbury 3rd Edition Make Up Bag | £32: I purchased this over Christmas and I've only just started using it. I've been using the EssieButton make up bag for absolute ages but because it's so big I end up having more than I need in it so I've switched to this one. I absolutely adore burgundy and anyone who knows me well will not be surprised by this at all. On the back it says 'Give a women the right make up and she conquer the world' and the front has lipstick prints from different celebrities. If you want a deluxe make up bag snap this up! You won't stop staring at it haha.

Make Up Geek Eyeshadows | £4.95: The most beautiful buttery eyeshadows I have ever used. I'm so glad it's easy to get hold of them in the UK now - I will do a full post about the shades I have and a review soon. But honestly they top any other eyeshadow I've tried so far and trust me I've tried a lot!

LUSH Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub | £8.95: I have done a full review on this product which I've linked so I will not go on about it too much. But this is a gorgeous gentle scrub which smells amazing - also doubles up as an amazing cleansing shampoo! Go read the review if you want to know more! 

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil | £9.99: Again I have done a full review on this product so I will try not to go on too much but I absolutely love this oil! I have ran out of my Estee Lauder one so I am using this at night time too and my skin absolutely loves it. It always feels soft and moisturised and it's definitely down to this little beauty! 

Origins Clear Improvements Charcoal Mask | £23: I got a set of Origins masks just before Christmas to try and I've got the most use out of this one so far. I love it - it's definitely made a huge difference in bringing pesky spots to a head or reducing them completely. My skin looks a lot clearly too! I usually use the Sanctuary Spa Detox mask but this is a nice alternative when I don't want my skin heated up at the same time! 

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Perfume | £54 for 50ml: I love scents like Paco Rabanne Lady Million and YSL Black Opium but as the sun is starting to show and Spring is slowly appearing I feel like I should be wearing a much lighter scent. So I've been using this gorgeous scent. It instantly makes me feel like Spring when I wear it and it's different to scents I usually like! It's just very fresh without being too overwhelming. It has top scents of blackberry, grapefruit and pear. Definitely give it a smell in store to see if you like it! 

Re-Gen Cream | £6.99: My skin has been an absolute nightmare since December and I've been mixing up different parts of my skin care routine to adjust to the breakouts I've been having. I used this product a long time ago and it done nothing but I thought I should try it again so I did. It has helped the texture of my skin so much and the redness has definitely reduced. I will try get a full review up soon. I believe it has similar ingredients to Bio Oil so it is suppose to be amazing for scarring etc. 

Benefit Hoola Bronzer | £23:50: Another product I've fallen in love with again. It just adds a nice natural contour to the face, it's matte so no weird shimmer! It's just a really good natural bronzer that lasts absolute ages. I've gone off a lot of Benefit products but this remains one of my favourites! If you want a full review just let me know and I'll do one but I swear it's everywhere in the blogsphere if you want to find out more!

NARS Creamy Concealer | £22: I find it so hard to find a drug store concealer that matches my skin tone so have to go towards high end. It's cheaper than buying two drug store and blending. Caramel matches me perfectly though - it's perfect for covering up those annoying blemishes and sits nicely under and over foundation. If you have any concealer recommendations please throw them at me!

Remmington Pearl Hair Straighteners | £44.99: I don't think these are available anymore but Remmington is an amazing brand for straighteners. I don't like GHDs as I have very fine hair and it just frazzles it whereas these ones are amazing and last absolute ages. Heat up in no time and work a dream. I also use them to curl my hair - if you're looking at new straighteners definitely look into Remmington. 

What are your favourites this month? Look out for my post on Wednesday for non beauty favourites! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

LUSH Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub


LUSH is that brand that everyone seems to love... Or hate. I'm one of those who loves it! I love using their bath bombs and haven't really tried much else! I mean I've tried a few other products in the past but nothing I loved so much to repurchase or that hasn't been replaced now! One of my lovely friends got me the Hello Gorgeous gift set for my birthday and in that set was this little beauty! The Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub. 
My skin can be very sensitive so I'm often put of by trying scrubs but I when I opened this pot I was surprised to see the that it is a wet scrub. I've used it both in the shower and bath and it's very easy to use. A little goes a very long way! I just get it in my hands and then rub it into my skin and then rinse off. Simple I know! It leaves my skin smelling so good, exfoliated and very soft even without moisturising. I think one of the reasons I love the scrub so much is the scent. It's floral but also smells of the sea. Like holiday if you like! Honestly if you go into LUSH give it a smell. 
As well as the scrub working amazingly and the gorgeous scent, it also doubles up as an amazing shampoo. I've only used it twice on my hair but I wish I had sooner. My hair just felt so clean and the scent lingered. Also for someone who has flat fine hair - it actually added volume that remained until I next washed my hair. It just gives the hair a good deep clean which is needed once in a while! Don't get me wrong my shampoo cleans my hair but with this one you can visibly see the difference. The smell also lingered on my hair which I loved. 
It is a really good multitasker and just a good scrub. It's replaced my Zoella one which I also love. I will be running to LUSH to repurchase as soon as I run out. If you do suffer from dry and sensitive skin definitely give this a go - it will be a lot kinder than a dry scrub.
You can get it for £8.95 for 350g but like I said a little really does go a long way! 
Have you tried this? What is your favourite scrub?
