Eylure

I have tried the Eylure lash and brow dye before but I didn't realise apart from false lashes, how many other products they do!


I have been trying some new brow products over the last couple of weeks and I have been so impressed. 

Brow Amplifier is a brow fibre gel which deposits small fibres onto your brows at the same time as depositing a setting gel to hold them in place, the mid brown shade was a perfect match and I was surprised how easy it was to use!

Brow Contour contains the perfect brow shade along with the highlighter so is a great staple for your make up bag.

I also tried a Brow Luminizer double ended highlighter pencil which is great to highlight under your brow for more definition. There is one matte shade and one shimmer shade so you can use either, or both together to create your desired look.

Mary Kay

I have been trying a few bits from Mary Kay in the last couple of months. A few  of my favourites are:

Lash love lengthening mascara
This mascara is now a staple in my make up bag. It adds length and thickness without looking clumpy and it can easily be layered.


Pure dimensions eye palette : Moroccan dunes
The packaging is beautiful and the shades are just as pretty. I think the shades all fit really well together.

True dimensions lipstick : coral bliss
This lipstick glides on smoothly and the colour is very pretty and girly. It is a subtle colour and is great for minimal make up looks.

True dimensions lipstick : sassy fuchsia
With the same formula as the one above, it is so easy to apply but this is a brighter option for those more daring!

Gel semi matte lipstick : poppy please
Not as creamy as the other lipsticks mentioned. This one is a lot more long lasting and more pigmented.

From left to right: poppy please, coral bliss, sassy fuchsia.

I have really been impressed with Mary Kay so far and will be investing in some more bits :)

Jelly Belly : Jelly Beans

I LOVE jelly beans. My favourite flavour is juicy pear, but to be honest, they are all pretty good! This selection box contains 20 of their most popular flavours and is a great way to try lots of different ones.

Jelly Belly : Jelly Beans

It contains:
Berry Blue, Blueberry, Bubble Gum, Buttered Popcorn, Coconut,  Cotton Candy, Green Apple, Island Punch,   Juicy Pear,  Lemon,  Liquorice,  Peach,  Pina Colada, Red Apple, Strawberry Cheesecake, Tangerine, Toasted Marshmallow, Tutti Fruitti, Very Cherry, Watermelon.

You can even combine them to make your own concoction! Maybe try apple and pear together or even cherry and coconut.

Jelly Belly : Jelly Beans

This pack won't last long, that's for sure!

Jelly Belly : Jelly Beans

I love how true the flavours are and how one small bean can taste so good and flavoursome.  

They are:
Gluten Free 
Gelatine Free 
Dairy Free 
Fat Free 
Peanut Free

So the ideal treat if you have certain food intolerance. 

The great thing is, once you find a flavour you like, you can then buy a massive 1KG bag of just that specific flavour ;)

I will be running a competition over on Twitter and Instagram to win a box for yourself!

Festival Pack

I came across www.chemist.co.uk whilst searching for toiletries online and found out they do festival packs, I think this is an amazing idea as they have several that you can choose from, aimed for people going to festivals this summer (or short getaways/camping etc)


I ordered the festival pack 4 along with some other bits I needed because at under £10 I thought it was a really got deal and had some great things included.

The one I chose included:

Batiste Dry Shampoo On The Go Tropical 50ml
Dextro Energy Orange +Vitamin C 47g 14 Tablets
Quickies Deodorant 12 Wipes
Natures Aid Vitamin C 1000mg Effervescent Orange - 20 Tablets
Dextro Energy Tablets Lemon
Carmex Cherry Lip Balm Tube 10g

I think this is a great selection of festival must haves and all of the items included would come in handy. In the other packs they have face wipes, mouthwash, false eyelashes, different lip balms, all sorts.

The site is also great for any toiletries you need, I picked up a few bits and was surprised how cheap they were and how quickly they arrived :)

The English Soap Company

I have mentioned The English Soap Company before in a post here. I think they make the most beautiful, amazing selling soaps, I just keep wanting more!


This Lemon and Mandarin set is under £10 and would make such a great gift, for a friend, a relative, a co worker or even a teacher at school. Not only does the range smell divine, but their soaps always leave your hands super soft! You could even buy the set and give away two as gifts and keep one for yourself :)


I hadn't heard of the Honey and Camomile one before but after just trying it in the bath, I love it so much. It has left my skin feeling nice and soft and I smell so good (If I can say so myself!). 

I think I need to invest in one of their candles to try :)

Border Biscuits

Border biscuits have always been one of my favourite biscuit brands. I love their chocolate chip brownies and butterscotch crunch. They have so many great ranges it is often hard to choose.

Border Biscuits

This share pack is a great idea as it contains 6 different varieties: Light & Chocolatey Viennese Whirls, Sweet Memories Butterscotch Crunch, Light & Buttery Chocolate Chip Shortbread, Chocolate Oat Crumbles, Buttery Sultana Melts, Divinely Chocolatey Cookies.

Border Biscuits

You can pick these up in most supermarkets and they would make a great treat for yourself or even as a gift.

Do you always read the washing instructions?!

Some of us always read washing instructions and some of get so confused by all of the different logos /instructions that we wash everything on the same setting and pray for the best. I fall in to the later category!

Data label recently ran a survey and 56% of people find laundry labels to be confusing, are you in this percentage?! You can read more about the survey here on the laundry and cleaning news website.

I ended up shrinking a couple of my husbands jumpers as I didn't read the instructions and put them in as what I call a "normal wash" so I have been warned by him, I must read the instructions in future. We now have 3 jumpers sat in the washing bin that I haven't touched in a couple of months as I just didn't feel like I could be dealing with figuring out what to do with them.

Not understanding washing instructions can be very daunting and may even out you off wearing certain clothes if you know they have to washed in a special way but you don't quite understand the confusing logos.

Data label have been amazing and put together this chart for those of us that don't really know what we are doing. I mean, until a few years ago my mum still did my washing and last time I checked, they don't teach you about washing or anything like this at school, you just have to pick it up and figure it out yourself!

data label washing instructions

I think this chart is really handy and has helped me a lot. I am no longer scared to do the washing haha :) I have even printed this off and stuck it to the inside of my cupboard where I keep my washing tablets.
