This is the first time I’ve done something like this and I’m excited! Myself and Alex from AlexRocksXo have teamed up to bring you a list of the must have products for this Spring. He will be giving you loads of fashion ideas for men and women and I will be doing a Spring make up wishlist, of all the products to watch out for. So once you’ve had a nosy through this, do go and check out his post, which is here – Click meeee! Please show him some love over on his post too, and let him know I sent you there!
It’s no secret that I have been majorly lusting after a satchel, like the ones from The Satchel Company London, Mulberry, and Zatchels, but they just weren’t in my price range (sniff sniff )
So I sadly went on with my life, satchel-less. Doomed to live this life without a satchel UNTIL that is, a miracle happened. I was going about my business, doing my big shop, and I saw it. Our eyes locked across the crowded ASDA, it softly called my name and I wandered towards it in a daze.
“Are you real beautiful satchel?”
“Yes, I am Beth. And guess what?”
“What lovely satchel?”
“I’m only £12″
Then I quickly stuffed it into my trolley and ran before someone could take it from me.Continue reading →
Today I bring you some fun and exciting news! The lovely Erika who blogs over at Eclectic Enchantments has launched her own jewellery store! When I heard she had launched this, I was right over there to see what was on offer. Everything is completely handmade by Erika which I love. She also has a bespoke jewellery making service where you can have your very own ideas come to life in a piece of jewellery. This is just awesome, seriously!
So, I thought I’d buy a few bits, and I ordered them on Friday and they came on Monday, so I thought I’d show you what I chose! Apparently I was her first customer through her online shop which is super exciting.
First up I chosen this ‘Heart Wish’ bracelet which is made from a copper heart and a red hemp cord. This comes in a few different colours, so there’s an option for everyone. I picked the red chord because I thought it was a bit different than anything else in my jewellery collection.
I love the idea behind this, I think it’s so sweet. It’s perfect for a gift for someone, and I made a little wish when I put it on, I hope it comes true!
Hope you are well? So, recently myself and my gorgeous events buddy Monica from MothLoves headed over to the Bloggers Love London Fashion Week (#LFW) Party, and I thought I’d tell you a little bit about it! Like the Secret Garden party, this was also held at Mahiki in Mayfair, which is a cool Hawaiian themed club!
When we got there we were greeted by the customary cupcakes and snacks, which I happily tucked into, then we made our way round the tables.
My absolute favourite part of the evening was getting in the King Of The Booth photobooth with Monica. Seriously, so much fun. This is the first time we’d seen anything like this at any event, and they had loads of things to dress up with. I especially like the last photo where it looks like mine and Monica’s prom photo! Haha!
I know I’m a bit late to the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser party, but I’ve been using it for about a month now and wanted to use it properly before doing a review. There seems to be a love/hate relationship with this primer, but I thought I’d throw my two cents into the mix.
I’d seen the Maybelline Baby Lips range for a while floating around, but then this ‘Baby Skin’ primer started to float around the blogosphere, and I popped into Boots (as you do) and saw it and thought why not, I’ll give it a go! This costs £7.99 which is quite pricy for such a small tube, but I’ve found that it’s lasted me quite a while so far!
I do really like the packaging of this product, as it fits with their other ‘baby’ range. I love that it says ‘only for adults’ on it too, I have some image in my brain of some weird person smothering their baby’s face in this.Ok I’m weird. Moving on! I love the colours of it, the turquoise and the baby pink, and that it’s in a squeezy tube. What I like about it is that it’s a completely clear gel with no fragrance, so less chance for irritation on my skin.
This primer is silicone based, meaning that is gets right into your pores and lines, giving you a smoother complexion and mattes out any oilyness you may have. It does look quite thick when it comes out of the tube, but I just apply it with my hands and find that it glides on easily, just like applying a moisturiser.Quite a lot of people though have said that they don’t like this slippery kind of texture, but I’m not sure exactly what they were really expecting from a primer which is silicone based ;) If you aren’t a fan of the more gel/soft/slidy/velvety primers then this isn’t for you! My experience with it has been that less is more, you definitely only need a thin layer of this product to get the most of it, but found that I needed to wash my hands after applying because all my brushes would slip out of my hand!
