Lush Milton Keynes Bloggers Event

If you haven't guessed by the title, we went along to the Lush Blogger Event at the Milton Keynes store. Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the torrent of photos in this post but more importantly for the amount of photos there are of Luke - he was doing too many weird things to not photograph. The event was ah-may-zing, and Luke and I came home very happy bunnies with lots of goodies that we can't wait to try. We *I* decided that we would write separate posts about the actual products because this post would be longest post in all of the land and even though Lush is basically heaven on earth, there's only so much a person can read.

I love Gerard...Cosmetics

A couple of weeks ago, after a very stressful week that I spent the majority of crying because I was possessed by hormones I felt that the only way to end it was to hide under the duvet with my phone and enter the wonderful world of Beauty Bay. I've said it before: retail therapy is my favourite kind of therapy and it works a treat for me because by the time I was ripping open this box all my woes flew out of the window. I've had my eye on Gerard Cosmetics for a while since seeing so many cracking reviews about the setting sprays and me being me, couldn't resist picking up a liquid lipstick because can you ever have enough liquid lipsticks? If you're answer is no, you're on the wrong blog buddy.

Kat Von D came the UK

Kat Von D came to the UK! Not literally, well she might have done, but not to Debenhams in Bedford and not recently. Her cosmetic line however is all over the place maybe not in every store but that's something a little click and collect can fix - and that is exactly what I did when twitter went into a little frenzy over some top notch cosmetic products hopping over the pond. I sneakily pounced onto Debenhams online to have a little nosey at the collection (with the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick engraved in the back of my mind) with it being the middle of the month, funds are low and it's time to be careful, yawn. But when I realised the liquid lipsticks were only £16 a pop I was googling swatches before I knew it.

Smoothskin Gold IPL | Week Twelve

I'm on week twelve! If you want to follow my Smoothskin Gold IPL journey from the very beginning click here. It's a little strange to think of my Monday nights without using my IPL now, it's become so normal in my beauty routine that I can barely remember the days of having to shave my legs and armpits during every shower. Smoothskin state that massive differences are most noticeable after twelve weeks of use and they weren't lying. I am so impressed with this product from how effective it is to how easy it to use to the excellent customer service.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics

Working in a town centre has such positive psychological affects and yet such detrimental financial ones. Retail therapy is the only therapy that I've ever needed. When having a crap morning at work, or life in general and I can pop into town on my lunch break and exchange my sadness for new make-up, shoes, or coffee. When I'm having an intense therapy session and make-up is on the agenda, aesthetics is of paramount importance because I'm shallow and pretty sh*t makes me happy.

Popcorn Lattes thanks to Monin*

If there's one company that knows how to do PR it's Monin and when they sent me this box I just knew I was in for a treat. To celebrate their new Popcorn flavoured syrup I was sent the cutest Popcorn pot that I'm sure Luke will be stealing seeing as he can't get enough of the stuff, along with a bag of personalised popcorn (anything with my name on wins), the cutest hot drink holder that is perfect for the colder months ahead and of course a bottle of the brand spanking new Popcorn flavoured syrup.

Pristine Dead Sea Mud Mask*

This is another little beauty that has helped me along my journey to stop moaning about my annoying skin. Rumour has it that the dead sea has amazing healing elements as well as the muds found along the sea, unfortunately I don't have enough funds to go dunking around the dead sea every week to improve my skin but Pristine have brought out the next best thing - you can own your very own pot dead sea mud for an affordable (sale price) of £14.99.

Exuviance Skincare*

I was given this bottle of Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel at The Bloggers Festival a couple of week's ago - I hand chance to talk to lovely ladies at their stand at The Bloggers Ball but they had run out of products to sample so I was pretty chuffed to bag this as there were so many positive reviews from The Bloggers Ball and I was keen to give it a whirl on my problematic skin.

Procoal London | Activated Charcoal Powder*

Procoal London sent me a pot of their activated charcoal to sample around 3 weeks ago. I was a little sceptical about the potential results of using this product as I've found that home teeth whitening processes barely compare to the real deal especially those that literally just involve brushing. However, the results of using Procoal have blown me away and not just by the effectiveness of the whitening elements. Being and ex-smoker and die hard coffee drinker (until I die,  I.D.S.T) My teeth are naturally stained, this is something that I've been quite self-conscious about because, well, no one likes a minging mouth.
