MAC Makeup Brushes

Hello Hello,
How are you beautiful people? just firstly wanted to apologise for my absence over the past few weeks, it has been super crazy and busy so have not had any time to sit and write anything and was feeling slightly over whelmed with everything that was going on... But I'm back now and excited to share this new post with you all. 

Last Christmas (which i know was a while ago now) i was lucky enough to be given the MAC SE brush kit which was on special just for christmas. I am such a sucker for nice packaging and my things looking pristine that admittedly i hadn't used them of a quite a while as they looked so perfect. I am not sure if any of you are like this at all by any chance?

MAC SE Brushes


To start with the packaging is great, simple black and white with a dash of gold. The packaging for the box is just the same which i like as the theme is consistent through out. When i open the zip you can see the beautiful silk lining. I was surprised that the pouch does not open all the way and flat.

MAC SE Brushes


There are five brushes which come in this set:

MAC 214SE - This is a short and rounded brush with soft and natural bristles. It is used to line your eyes and also to smudge any harsh lines if you were going for a smokey look for example. The MAC 214SE is also very good to packing lots of shadow onto the lid. 

MAC 266SE - This is a fantastic brush, the bristles have been put in place precisely for this angled edge to make it easy to apply any eye liner. I use this with either powder if i am going for a soft look or with my gel liner if i want to make a defined line. 

MAC 219SE - This brush is shaped with a pencil like edge. This is great for packing shadow into the crease for a precise application. You can also use it to line your last line if you were going for that softer more blended look. 

MAC 211SE - I have never really used a lip brush previously as i would just apply my lip colour straight onto my lips. This is a great little handy brush to have when packing lots of colour onto your lips. 

MAC 227SE -  This is a great extra large paddle brush, with a fluffy round top. You can use it for your eyes or your face. It is very good for applying highlighter or blending and powdered base products. 

I hope you liked my review and please let me know if you have any of these and what you think in comments below.

Clarins Multi Active Day Cream



Clarins Multi Active Day Cream

Clarins Multi Active Day Cream


So its that time of the month again where i run out of moisturiser. I have tried a few moisturisers but this time I'm going back to my Clarins Multi Active Day Cream. Moisturiser is such an important part of your daily face routine so buying a good cream is essential. 

I do favour this cream mostly because a little goes along way. The texture of the cream is thick and rich so you only need a small amount which makes the tub last longer. I dab small amounts of the cream onto my forehead, cheeks, chin and nose and then rub in gently always remembering to avoid your eyes. I find this moisturise lasts me all day and never leaves me with dry skin. It also is a very good base for my makeup which is always helpful. 

The packaging of the cream i do really like the glass tub with a white lid is very simple but classy and  fits in well with my bathroom as it is mostly white.

Life Update!


Hello all you lovely people, 

So just a bit of a life update as I'm sure you have noticed i have not posted for a while. 
It has been a crazy few weeks and i have not stopped and had a chance to catch up.

To start with my contract finished at work so was going through a transition period of changing jobs which meant going for interviews and prepping which took so much of my time. 
I then secured a role which was fantastic news and am very happy, so i jetted off to Greece to see some family. If you follow my on Instagram you would have seen some of my holiday posts. 
The days away were amazing and loved spending time with family to really relax.


I then came back and my parents went away for 10 days so was left to look after the house. It was a crazy 10 days with looking after the house, fiancĂ© and starting a new job. Adjusting took some getting used to as i have never been left with the house before. I loved every minute of it and now have the itch to move out and get my own place. 

I have also been feeling so unmotivated so wasn't sure what to do. So i have decided to write a life plan along with a bucket list. I am feeling slightly more motivated now and getting back into the swing of things but is just taking some time. 
Once i have completed my Bucket List i will defiantly be doing a post about it and take you though my experiences. I am really excited about the journeys to come and hope you all stick along for the ride.

Have you started a Bucket List or written a Life plan i would love to hear your experiences and any motivation tips you may have. :)

We all need a great paid of sunnies for festival season. These are a must have essential during the day not only to protect your eyes but to compete any look.

A festival would not be a festival without the famous straw hat. A straw hat goes with any festival outfit. They are great in the sunshine to protect yourself from the sun if it gets too hot and at the same time looking fabulous.

Now the bag you take is essential, we don't want it too big because we are carrying it around all day however, it much fit in all the essentials. As you are wearing your bag all day i believe it should not be too heavy otherwise you will end up with a sore shoulder. I think light weight bag, which you can cross over your body are perfect, that way you don't have to think about it.


The two bracelets are gorgeous and perfect for the festival season. The mixture of colours matches perfectly with any outfit you choose to wear. The simplistic colourful bands are all that you need on your wrist for a party in the sun.

Scarves are a great accessories to have what ever the occasion. The two beautiful Scarves will make any outfit and any occasion. After going to quite a few festivals i have found this to be one of my must haves. During the day i tend to tie to round my bag as it is generally a bit hot. During the evenings as it gets late the temperature drops and i pull out the scalf and keeps me warm of the rest of the evening.

Simplistic not too loud and not easy to get caught on. The two beautiful earrings i have picked are perfect for festival season. They are not serious going out earrings they are fun and light which is just what you need for your festival days out.

Benefits of Green Tea


Benefits of Green Tea


Hello Beauties, Now i know that when we think of Green Tea its not the drink that everyone will jump too. However, it is surprisingly filled with such healthy properties we would be foolish to turn it down. 

Green Tea contains Bioactive ingredients which improve General health

Green Tea is more than just a funny coloured tea, it contains so many important nutrients to help your body. 

It is full of polyphenols like flavonoids and catchins which are a powerful antioxidant reducing the free radicals in our body. Free radicals are shown to help reduce the ageing process and protects against diseases. 
One powerful antioxidant which can be found in Green Tea is Epigallocatechin Gallate, which is often used to treat some diseases. 


Green Tea is a known Fat Burning and improves Physical Fitness
Yes that is right Green Tea will help you shed those unwanted pounds, and if you look into those fat burning supplements chances are you will find Green Tea in there. This is because Green Tea increases your metabolic rate, and Caffeine has been shown to mobilising fatty acids from the fat tissues so you are able to use them as energy. 
Green Tea can make you smarter
Yes i know this sounds crazy but it is true. The low amount of caffeine that is in Green Tea has been proved to act as a stimulant. The caffeine block an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine increasing the firing neurone and concentrations of dopamine and norepinephrine. It has also been proven to improve your mood, reaction time and memory.
Green Tea lowers your chances of cancers
The antioxidants in Green Tea have been proved to have a protective effect on cancers so it would be rude not to. Here are a few facts for you:
Breast Cancer: Women who drank the most Green Tea had a 22% lower risk of developing breast cancer. 
Prostate cancer: Men drinking Green Tea had a 48% lower risk of developing prostate cancer.
Colorectal Cancer: A study of 69,710 Chinese women found that Green Tea drinkers had a 57% lower risk of colorectal cancer.
Do you drink Green Tea, What do you think?

Mr. Nutcase Phone Case Review


Mr NutCase* | DISCOUNT CODE: Thanku10

Hello Beauties, Hope your all keeping well..
I have seen so many place advertising personalised phone cases and i think they are great. So when i was contact by Mr.Nutcase about a chance to review their custom iPhone case product i couldn't wait. 
So once i had decided on a selection of pictures i want to put on my case i navigated to their site to find a fun quirky kind of site. I would say the site is simplistic in a good way and very easy to navigate around which i personally prefer. 

When i start the process of ordering your case you have to sign up to the site to proceed. The step by step process of choosing your phone and type of case is very easy, What i liked the most is the vast choice of designs to choose from. I must say it took me a while to choose as i could not make my mind up. (I'm quite indecisive :) ).

Uploading your pictures to the sign and dropping them on the case itself is also a simple process, you click and drop the picture of your choice into any of the sections provided give you a clear view of what your case is going to look like. It is easy to move images around and alter the size to suit your needs. 

The checkout process was quick and easy, and once your have ordered your item you receive a mail informing you of your order. Along the order process you also get emails updating you on the status of your order, which i love to see as a customer as i think its good customer service. 

As a thank you i have been lucky enough to give you lovely people a discount by using Thanku10 at the Checkout to get 10% off. Hope you enjoy it. And let me know how you get on.
