I was invited to the Body Shop Relaunch event with my friend Abbie to see how the shop looks now it’s had a makeover. It’s found inside St David’s Cardiff opposite the escalators that lead into St David’s 2. The Body Shop is all about being sustainable and eco friendly, so this was factored into its new and improved store.
The store even before entering looked a lot more open, brighter, and spacious. Read below to see how we both got on!
Femmelux contacted me again to do a piece on their clothing available to spring so I happily accepted as I’ve really enjoyed bringing you clothing posts to showcase what they have for a fuller figure from their website!
Femmeluxe is a fashion brand and website that caters to sizes XS-XL selling a range of clothing such as lounge wear, party dresses, every day dresses, active wear and coats.
This time I went for a more practical approach and picked lounge wear and some pieces to have ready in time for places to open up post covid. Take a look and see what I got below.
I’ve been having a massive makeup clear out during lockdown and have donated or given away items I haven’t used or gently used. My collection had a lot of nudes or same colour stories so it’s time to revamp and add additional colours and products I don’t have.
I realized I lacked green eyeshadows, and for my complexion and eye colour I adore greens, especially mixed with golds and plums. I had a quick browse in Superdrug and found this cute palette for just £5, and having some Revolution / I heart Revolution makeup previously I picked it up.
This is the lucky Palette from their Heartbreaker line, which consists of tones of green and pops of colour which complement each other.
During an intimate event with Kat Von D I was kindly gifted their Dagger Liner to try out, which is a similar format to the Tattoo Liner but t an angle. I did not get on with the Tattoo Liner originally due to the applicator being a little chunky for me to apply thin lines with, so I was excited to see if this applicator worked better for me. The formula is very similar to the Tattoo Liner, so if you are a fan favourite of this cult product or like me, longed for something thinner, this might be for you!
It retails for £17 and is the same colour, Trooper Black, as the Tattoo Liner.
Read on to see how I got on with the liner!
While at the Kat Von D Blogger Event I was given the opportunity to try a Lock It Foundation. This is something I had been dying to try for years as I had heard friends and bloggers online rave about the coverage and lasting power of the foundation.
The shade range available ranged from very pale to deep tones so there is definitely an option for almost everyone. If your shade is slightly off tone, you can mix the Lock It Concealers in to get your perfect shade.
With Spring literally just arriving, I’m eager to see what the trends will be for this season. I’m praying and hoping we ditch the matte lip, foundation and heavy brows and move on from the perfected Kylie Jenner-esque look.
Here are my predictions for the start to a fresher makeup look for Spring 2017.
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.
Glam Glow was recently launched in Boots in Cardiff and I’ve been wanting to try this blogger favourite for a while. I managed to get some samples from the counter to try at home myself to figure out what one I love the most before I purchase. I have really sensitive skin so with any skincare product I always make sure to try before I commit and purchase.
I was given Youth Mud, Super Mud and Thirsty Mud to try so at the time of using this my skin needed a bit of a pick me up and exfoliate so I used Youth Mud. I’m 25, so I feel like this is the age I should start using anti ageing and look after my skin a little more so I was keen to try it and possibly purchase if I loved using it.
1 tub of Youth Mud sells every 10 seconds in the US so I was keen to see what the hype was. One 50g tub costs around £39 from Boots.
I’m not overly keen on baths but when I do have a relax I like to have a really bubbly bath. I’m more impressed at how my bath bubbles up than a fizzing bath bomb. Baths are supposed to be bubbly!
I was immediately drawn to the smell of The Comforter because it reminded me of my beloved Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly which has sadly become discontinued. It’s also a supersized Bubble Bar which means more bubble for my buck.
On the first of March I was invited to attend an afternoon with JoeBloggers, The Crafty Hen and Hillarys to learn how to create some exciting crafts using Hillarys blind fabric.
I was excited to try something different and go to an event that was a change from beauty blogging and it was a refreshing afternoon to create something that I could use and take home!
This event was held in Chapter Arts in Canton, Cardiff. I’d never been before but the building was beautiful and I had a shock to see how big the building actually was. If you haven’t been here please do check it out, it hosts some local talent and live acts.
During the day, we created a book cover, and a fabric bird.
