I was approached by ChloBo in December to learn about their jewellery and have the opportunity to try one of their bracelets from their current collection.
ChloBo is a jewellery company that creates bespoke Gold, Gold plated, and Sterling Silver pieces to suit every style and current trend. They offer bracelets, rings, necklaces, pendants earrings and much more. Ranging from minimalist to statement there is truly something to cater for everyone’s style.
I chose to receive the Mini Noodle Ball Dragonfly Bracelet priced at £90 which was Gold Plated on 925 Sterling Silver, as I prefer gold jewellery and loved how small and minimal the design was.
ChloBo is a UK brand started by Chloe Moss, who started creating jewellery herself and is worn by celebrities such as Ellie Goulding and Cheryl Cole. It was first stocked in Liverpool’s popular store Cricket and has even been featured in Vogue. Her inspirations for her whole line of jewellery comes from Bali and South-East Asia and her brand certainly shows her love of travelling with it’s iconography and simplistic designs and charms.

I kindly received a box of W7 goodies to try and throughout the month I’ll be writing how I got on with the products and how they slotted into my usual routine. The one I was most concerned about switching in my routine was the primer. I’m a big fan of my Iman Time Control primer, Nyx Angel Veil and Nyx Primer spray and it is hard for me to change my mind when I’m happy with something in my routine. Whenever I hear the word “Pore” in a primer, I do cringe. Silicone based primers rarely sit on my skin and I find that any primer that tries to be a dupe of Benefit’s Porefessional slides off my skin. However I’m always up for trying new things so I gave it a go.
Retails at: £6.95
Trialled for: 1 month

While shopping in Mcarthur Glen I managed to pick up an Ultraflesh blusher. I’ve heard good things about their products in the past so I was excited to be finally able to try a product of theirs.
I picked up a rose gold blusher, which is out of my comfort zone and a colour I want to try and wear. So basically this was a kill two birds with one stone moment for me! The colour didn’t look too bright and just had enough of a shimmering glow to it that didn’t look too much for me to handle.
I paid £4.99 for this, but it does retail for around $30.

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to work on the day when Mark Hill came into store to demonstrate his new Pick and Mix range of hair tools and products. I popped down to have a look at the display and Meet Mark on my lunch break. There was an array of products on display including every wand available to purchase, three demo stations to have your hair done by one of the wands of your choice and a pop up selfie booth. I was told that they had a blogger event in the morning as they assumed that’s why I popped along, I wasn’t invited to but didn’t mind as I got to see the event all day from my counter.

It’s that time of the year where a bunch of us local welsh bloggers get invited to a get together in Lush to shop and try their new product lines, this time it was for their new limited editions in their Mothers Day and Easter lines. Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars and scrubs were all being demo’d as well as well as mini hand demo’s of face masks and scrubs and hand products. Continue reading “Lush Easter Bloggers Event!”
As I’m moving house in a couple of weeks I’m starting to de-clutter my life starting with my biggest collection, my makeup drawers and bags. So I thought while I’m throwing things out I’d document the products I’ve barely touched and why I’ve never used them before giving them the chop.
These opinions and views are my own, and based on how they work on my own skin. My opinions in this blog post do not reflect other products in the lines of these companies, and were purchased with my own money.

I decided to have a shirt hiatus from the blogging world. So what happened while I was away?
I decided to take a break after becoming very ill on and after my Birthday. I spent in London for my Birthday, then after my Birthday I was struck with the flu followed by a winter cold, which led me to miss lots of blogging opportunities and events. With my work and university work on top of this I decided to take a short break to clear my mind and get better, which has helped me a lot! This week I headed back to london with my University to visit some art galleries and museums, did a little shopping at my usual shops then headed back to wet and windy Wales.
Here is some of what has been going on in my life in pictures…
I was lucky enough to see some amazing works in the Tate, Victoria and Albert Museum and even spotted some Moschino jewellery on show.
For my birthday I stayed in London, went shopping and did general tourist things such as visit Madame Tussauds.
At the moment in University I’m doing printing which is a lot of hard work, I’m creating woodcut pieces, hand painted screen prints and etching plates. We’re creating these with the human body as a theme, it’s time consuming but knowing its hand made is rewarding once you see the work finished.
Before I got ill, I was able to go to the Student Lock in in Cardiff, which was a lot of fun but very busy! I was invited to attend by Superdrug to see what they had to offer on the night and what kind of Christmas gifts they had in store.
Starting from this week I’ll be blogging again about make up beauty and life in general. Apologies for the lack of posts everyone!
Later on tonight I’ll be attending the Lush Summer Blogger event in Cardiff so I thought I’d share my look with you all!

While I was at the Superdrug Beauty Store opening last month I decided to pick up a new blusher from I heart Makeup. I usually go for pinks rather than bronze-y peach colours but decided to give this a go. I was pleasantly surprised! There are three types and I chose Peachy Keen.
Time trialed: Month and a half.

When I saw this product on some American blogger’s sites I knew as soon as it would hit the UK I’d need it, so I bought it straight away on launch day in Boots, which is conveniently placed opposite my counter so I did not have to venture far to get it! Plus I’m an absolute sucker for purple things, so this was a must!
Lollitint is a pink orchid tint for lips and cheeks, can be applied using fingers or brush, under or over foundation for a sweet tint. Pantone’s colour of the year is Radiant Orchid, which Pantone describes as “Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination.” Which in my opinion describes this tint!
Time Trialed: 2 weeks in store before hand, 1 week owning the product, three weeks in total. Continue reading “Benefit Lollitint review + Swatches!”
