Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Palette Iconic Division

Makeup Revolution are officially the gods of budget palettes and when I say budget you’re looking at less than a fiver for a palette that is the equivalent of Joe’s technicolour dream-coat and their recent offerings are nothing short of heavenly. I first noticed the Reloaded Newtrals on Anoushka’s Instagram and had decided I needed it but then the Re-Loaded Palette Iconic Division was quite literally screaming my name and begging me to buy it for it’s earthy hues and tones that would make my hazel eyes pop like a pop star.

Review | Boohoo Cosmetics High Pigment Eye Shadow Palettes

Yeah, you read that right - BOOHOO DO COSMETICS  I think I noticed some the of the collection on their Instastories last week and couldn't resist buying a couple of bits to see how they shape up. Due to my diverse collection of eye shadow palettes I think I'm better at working out what is a bargain and what is a heap of 💩 in comparison to other products. As with all Boohoo products, the cosmetics collection is more than affordable which made me more intrigued to check it out in person.

Soap and Glory Favourites Old and New

I've been a big old fan of Soap and Glory for a while now, for the past five years my Mum has always got me the Big One for Christmas which keeps me stocked up in products for a good few months. Even Luke has become a fan, he used my Sugar Crush Shower Gel the first time he stayed at my house and ordered himself some as soon as he got home. My cousin has also become a die-hard fan and got a massive haul of goodies for Christmas and her raving reviews sparked me to blow the points left on my Boots on some new S&G wonders and write a post about my trusty old faves and impressive new buys.

Review | Jamie Oliver 5 Ingredients - Quick & Easy Food

I was half-tempted to buy Luke this book back during Christmas time when I half-noticed a Youtuber mention it. More recently we went to Luke's parents who had got the book for Christmas and both had a look at some of the recipes and were really keen to try a few. We're definitely lacking inspiration in the kitchen lately and tend to go for the same, very basic meals of spag bol, wraps, chilli or pizza. We also both have very different preferences when it comes to food, where I go for hearty northern stews and roasts, Luke prefers fajitas and well, Nando's. With this in mind I decided to snap this up on Amazon for £11 and see how our pal Jamie O creates meals with just 5 ingredients.

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Lingerie Vault with swatches

What's the most logical thing to do when you're wanting to try a lip product for the first time? Buy it in 30 shades of course. I've been lusting after the Nyx Lingerie collection for a while but with already having an obscene amount of lip products that I don't use often often enough stashed away in my make-up drawer, I never got around to buying any (much to Luke's relief). Then, Cult Beauty popped up in my inbox with an offer to buy the Lingerie Vault, that includes 6 additional shades to the collection for £45 and the baby kicked and it accidentally fell in my shopping basket and before I knew it it was being handed to me by the world's grumpiest postman and well, here we are.

Review | BaByliss 2289KU Keratin Shine Wave Curling Tong

I'm still not over big bouncy wavy hair and I don't think I ever will be, back in the day I used barrel roll dry my hair and curl it with a curling wand and add some bedraggled and battered extensions to ensure ultimate volume. These days I'm much less OTT and after an incident with the afore mentioned curling wand that resulted in some severely burnt finger tips, I resorted to using some (very old) straighteners to add some waves to my hair. Unfortunately, these old straighteners were only burning the ends of my hair leaving it smelling and feeling a bit dodgy afterwards. I decided to take advantage of the Boxing Day sales and treat myself to a new curling tong and the BaByliss Keratin Shine Wave Curling Tong caught my attention.

pregnancy update | 32 weeks

Can you bloody believe I'm thirty two weeks pregnant? That's a half a year, I can't believe I'm pregnant at all to be honest. Pregnancy has been hard and I don't mean hard in some kind of mard arse millenial way, I mean as a process it's physically hard yet incredible what the body goes through and my god have been feeling it lately. To celebrate hitting the mile stone of the thirty two weeks I've complied a list of some of the less glamorous things about pregnancy that I didn't anticipate.
