My Experience With Teeth Whitening

 I had my teeth whitened at the end of 2012 and I still top up my whitening so I thought I would do a little post about it. I will start off by saying my boyfriend is a dentist so I didn't pay full price and I didn't have much preparation because I kind of just trusted him to do it without talking me through everything. My friend at uni had whitened her teeth and her teeth looked amazing which got me thinking about my own. I had always known they were a little yellow but it never really bothered me until I started going out with a dentist and I became more aware of my smile.

FOTD 21/08/13

Time for another Face Of The Day post. This Summer for me has actually been more about eyeshadow than it has lipstick (I mean, it's been more about sunshine and alcohol but on the beauty side of things...), especially gold/orangey tones which kind of scream autumn leaves but I don't care. *ALERT! I am in London at the moment so I may not have time to answer comments or visit other people's blogs but I will try*

Obsessed With # 5: KIKO City Filter Primer

I'm not really a 'primer girl' (if you can categorize people like that) because it is usually a step that I forget. I usually just apply my moisturiser before foundation so I feel like it's weird to then put on a primer on top of that. However! I have 'met' a primer that I have been using non-stop ever since I bought it and that is saying something.

Disappointing Product # 1: B. Radiant Illuminating Foundation

Left: Blended, Right: Not blended

I don't often complain about products but with the amount I rave about products I think are great I think it's only honest to talk about the products I haven't fallen for as well. This is the B. Radiant Illuminating Foundation in 'Linen' and you can get this from Superdrug. The name of this foundation is what sold it for me because I love a radiant finish but overall I haven't really taken to this for several reasons.

Recent Purchases # 8

So I got a few things. I went shopping in Spain in San Sebastian (holler at me if you've been there before) and clothes tend to be cheaper in Spain so yeah, this happened. My buys were from Zara, KIKO, The Body Shop and Hakei. If you want to see what I got then be my guest and read on!

Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Shine in 24 - 'Rose xoxo' or 'Pou Pou Pidou'?

So I got the Bourjois Rouge Edition Shine in 'Rose xoxo' last month when I was back in the UK for graduation and now I've checked online and I can't find this shade anywhere. I think they have maybe changed the name to 'Pou Pou Pidou' because that shade seems to look the same. If you know if 'Rose xoxo' and 'Pou Pou Pidou' are different shades or if 'Rose xoxo' got changed to 'Pou Pou Pidou' then please let me know!

FOTD 14/08/13

Since watching Chelsea's last video I have become obsessed with a one colour shimmery eye. Unfortunately I don't have the Urban Decay Naked or Naked 2 palette but I have a similar kind of thing from MUA (the Undress Me Too one). This was a really simple, quick makeup look to achieve so I'll just run you through what I used...

Current Hair Favourites # 2

I will admit that I am a bit of a makeup hoarder, a tiny bit of a skincare hoarder (but not too bad at all) but when it comes to hair and body care I tend to keep things to a minimal. I don't really want five shampoos, five conditions and just five of everything because then it just takes up too much room and never gets used. So that is why I tend to write more posts about makeup and skincare but I do have some bits and bobs that I have been really liking this Summer.

Essie Meet Me At Sunset

It seems to be that in the beauty blogging community you're either pro-Essie or anti-Essie and I am definitely pro. I actually find that all nail varnishes pretty much chip the same amount on my nails and it is all about what top coat I wear. I love Essie because of the amazing colour range, I just think they have a colour to go with every outfit and for every occasion. I find that their colours are a lot more complex and perfected than what you might find from some of the cheaper brands. This one is Meet Me At Sunset.

FOTD 6/8/13

I haven't done a Face Of The Day post in a while so I thought it was about time I got back into them. I like to see how products actually look on the face rather than just always pretty pictures of the product in the pan. I especially wanted to do one today because I have discovered a new product that I am especially pleased with.

Obsessed With # 4: Soap & Glory Cosmetics

 Soap & Glory cosmetics are fairly new to me, I love their shower gels and body scrubs but only just started using their makeup within the last month or so. I think I had tried a mascara by them last year but that was the extent of my relationship with Soap & Glory cosmetics. That was until I wanted to try their Sexy Mother Pucker Sticks and I saw that all Soap & Glory cosmetics were on 3 for 2 in Boots last month. I absolutely love all three of the products I chose so I thought I would share the love!

Current Makeup, Skincare & Hair Favourites # 2

You have or may not have noticed that I gave up on monthly favourites a while back because sometimes I don't have any specific favourites for a specific period of time. I think just doing them periodically whenever I want to allows for a little more honesty so I can really talk about what I have been loving over the past whatever amount of time rather than feeling under pressure to write about my favourites every single month. You may have seen me write about a few of these products before but I think that really shows how great they are and some of these are newbies.
