I was so excited when Brit Fash contacted myself to choose one of the Stone Union hats from their website recently. It's kind of gave me a kick up the bum too. As I've been meaning to get more into fashion/style posts for quite some time. Now this is a teeny bit out of my comfort zone. Ok, I lied!! It's way out of my comfort zone haha! Just throw yourself in at the deep end girl! 


When I was having a browse on Brit Fash website, I came across this bobble hate in oatmeal! My mind was made up straight away! It's sooooo pretty & very me. Everyone knows how much I love my bobble hats right? It's a shame to pack them away soon though for the Spring/Summer, but at least I know I'll have this beautiful hat to wear later in the year. Hat's are such a good accessory especially when you can hide those messy bed hair days. Probably why I love them so much as I'm super lazy ZzzZzz! The hat has a gorgeous cable detailing and is made out of the super, super soft laguna yarn. As you can guess from the name 'oatmeal' the hat is kind of like a pale cream colour, just think of porridge girls! God I'm so good at describing colours. I've been wearing mine a lot recently on those mardy, moody rainy days. Not only does the hat look gorgeous, but it also keeps you super warm. The Laguna bobble hats come in lots of different colours. Be sure to have a look, especially whilst their on sale! Everyone loves a bargain. 


Please, please, please let me know if you think I should do more posts like this? I will buy myself a tripod for my camera if so (yup, I've been putting that one off too haha). Shh! Girls have too many things to do day in day out already hehe.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush - Product Of The Week #1


Soap & Glory - Sugar Crush
Fresh & Foamy Body Wash 500ml

I'm sure most of you have heard of Soap & Glory before as it's been all over the blogger world, but for those of you that haven't Soap & Glory are a brand sold here in the UK who sell all sorts of different products, ranging from skin care, to spot zappers and even make-up. I've been using this product non stop this week. I seriously can not get enough of it! It smells that good that I want to eat it! (please don't do this) haha.

Now the scent of this product is really sweet so if you like sweet smells then you'll love this one! The scent of this product reminds me of some sweets I use to eat back in the day! The sweets are called 'Fizzy Jerks' can anyone remember them? I haven't seen them about in years! I'd love to know if anywhere still stocks them. I need to stop rambling! What I love about Soap & Glory body washes is that the scent seems to be so long lasting on the skin and not only that but they make my skin feel super soft! I always get compliments on how smooth 'baby like' my skin is. I don't use anything special on my body just different Soap & Glory products. So thank you S&P! You little gem.


Not only do I love the product and how well it works. I also love the design and packing of this product. Don't you think they'd look super preedy on the side of your bath or hanging in your shower rack?  The pump is so ideal as well! There's nothing more annoying than trying to open a product with wet hands. It makes it easy to control the amount you dispense and keeps everything looking clean and tidy. I think these body washes are well worth the money as you get 500ml for just £6.50l! I suppose you can feel luxurious without the price tag after all girls :) 



What's your favourite product from the Soap & Glory range?

Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte - Kate Moss 110.


A new one to add to my growing lipstick collection is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte - Kate Moss 110. This lipstick was bought for me by one of my best friends as part of a birthday present. She knows me so well I got all sorts of little treats. Thank you Hannah. I'm sure I'll be popping up some more reviews up about the other presents at some point, but I'll keep quiet for now.

At a first glance the lipstick does appear red, but it's more of a coral red. It's a BOLD one! But it's one of those lipsticks that will be used over and over now that the Summer is creeping up on us. I'm already excited to pack it away in my holiday case and I don't even have a holiday booked haha.

This lipstick is moisturising, which is quite bizarre to say as it has a matte finish to it. It is scented, but scents in lipsticks aren't really off putting to me and this one is quite fruity, but just for those of you out there that don't like a scented lipstick it may not be your cup of tea. Nothing worse than the chocolate scented lip glosses and body wash (gip, gip). 

You can buy Rimmel lipsticks in your local Boots or Superdrug stores and even online for just £5.49 each. For a reasonable price the lipstick is really good and I will be back to buy more. You could buy three for the price of one MAC lipstick hehe.

MAC Eyeshadows - Nylon & Vanilla.


A while back I purchased some new eyeshadows for my MAC palette. I decided to go for Vanilla and Nylon as I needed some lighter shades in my palette, although the pictures don't do much justice for these eyeshadows. Let me just tell you, in the words of Bruce Nolan (Bruce Almighty) they are B-E-A-UTIFUL! and a staple in everyone's MAC palette. I could do with some medium/darker shades to blend in the crease now. Does anyone recommend any? Preferably on the neutral side of shadows. You can't beat a new MAC eyeshadow! They just seem to glide and blend so easily on the eye compared to other eyeshadows I've tested. 

Vanilla

Finish: Velvet
Colour: An off white, kind of like an Ivory
Works best:Inner corner of the eyes, base, brow bone and crease.
This is just one of those staple eyeshadows that everyone needs in their MAC palette!
I love using this eyeshadow in the inner corners of my eyes, under my brow bone and as a base on my lid. I even apply this all over the lid sometimes before applying the shade I'm going to wear, just to brighten it up a little.
Although it appears to have a tiny sparkle in the pan the eyeshadow does apply as a matte. I use this eyeshadow everyday without a doubt. I'm getting pretty close to hitting pan already! 

Nylon

Finish: Frost
Colour: Pale gold with an icy shimmer in it (when applied to myself it is a lot lighter than it appears in the pan)
Works best: In the inner corners of the eye and on the brow bone to define that brow!
This eyeshadow is super shimmery! It works great as a highlighter, but I wouldn't advise wearing it on the base/lid, unless if you can make it work. Unfortunately I'm not lucky enough to pull it off, but it does look amazing in the inner tear duct area. I love wearing this especially on nights out. It adds great effects to a dramatic eye look. 

These eyeshadows are just £10.00 each, which isn't that bad considering how good they are. You can also purchase these shades in pot form if you don't have a palette for just £12.50. I purchased mine online - www.maccosmetics.co.uk 



Do you own any of these eyeshadows?
What's your all time favourite MAC eyeshadow?
TOUGH ONE! :o
