I was contacted by Fashion Website Rinsta who specialise in Y2K, E-girl and overall cute fashion to pick some items and let you all know how their clothes are!
I went for a selection of clothes that ranged from cute and girly to more of my style to get an overall look at their range. They’ve also kindly given me two discount codes to use on their website which are:
RIN15 for 15% off
RIN20 for 20% off if you order over $65 worth of items!
I used the Huji app to take these photos to get that disposable camera vibe to match the clothes.
Read on to see how I got on and if you like anything feel free to order! (Discount code supplied is not an affiliate link.)
After a rather chaotic past 2 years, it’s safe to say this Holiday we will be treating our loved ones a little bit more, and here are some of my favourite sets £30 and under available at beauty retailers in the UK.
Its always a struggle to get certain gifts however this year I’ve found that holiday sets are packed full of products to try, which is perfect after not being able to keep up with new launches from brands.
Read on to find out what I’ve found at my local Boots store and take some inspiration for gifting!
When I watched Nintendo Direct, I was not prepared for the gasp that left my body when I saw Ocarina of Time come up on my screen with the possibility of Majora’s Mask coming onto it as well. I thankfully pay monthly for my Nintendo Online, so I was prepared to accept for the Expansion I would probably have to pay upwards of £40 on the spot to access it. If you know me, The Legend of Zelda has a special place in my heart, it was the first game I had that locked me in, I was able to discuss with class mates and helped me escape as a child.
Thankfully in the UK it was £34.99, a lot cheaper than I anticipated, which as a birthday treat for myself purchased on launch day. For me this must have been the 12th, minimum, playthrough of OOT, as I’m one of those fan girls who own a copy on every system. So as I was playing I had certain expectations of the port as I have played the N64, Wind Waker special edition version, and recently started a new save on the Collectors Edition so it was pretty fresh in my head up until the Water Temple boss fight for me. This will be more of a how I got on, not a review of the games story, with slight spoiler images. How did I find playing this version? Read on to find out.
I’m not a fan of silicone based primers, however I thought I would give this a try as I received it as part of a try me bag through my work.
I’ve never got on with silicone primers, mainly as it clogs my pores resulting in breakouts, slides my makeup around in oily places and just makes my makeup sit very poorly. However, I love trying things and being proved wrong and finding new things to use.
This primer retails for £32 for 30ml, comes in a glass bottle with gold lid which sits very nicely next to other YSL products.
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.
I dye my hair, a lot, if you hadn’t noticed by now! Growing up with a mother as a hairdresser, from the age of 15 have always had some sort of colour in my hair. It is kind of like a security blanket, but I don’t feel myself if my hair is brown or blonde, it has to have some splash of colour in it!
I found the Colorista Yellow Washout on an end of line clearance and was skeptical. Some yellows I have had in the past such as Crazy Colour, W7 or Directions didn’t come out very yellow, even on the lightest parts of my hair. I initially got this colour to mix it in with reds and oranges but thought why not try it on its own to create my ombre hair.
I think I paid £3 for this, but normal Colorista products retail for around £7.
I was contacted by Femmeluxe, an online fashion brand which do a selection of lounge wear, formal, and every day clothing to pick some items out to try on for you all! They had a good selection of sizes, ranging from an XS-XL, as well as 8-16. Prices are reasonable and affordable, such as jumpers for between £12.99-£20, and dresses which go for the same price range up to the £40 mark.
While picking my clothing, I wanted ones that I could really get a use out of that could be used for every day work clothes and going out. I chose a cropped jumper, a jumper dress, and a black popper shirt dress.
All sizes ordered were mixed sizes, but were a 12-14.
Take a look at what clothes I chose and how I got on with them below!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by ION SEI to try out their electric toothbrush. This is a different direction to my usual posts however I do believe it is imperative to keep up good oral hygiene. After being born with no enamel on my teeth, to having a tooth growing in the middle of the roof of my mouth and having braces for 4 years to drag it to the right place, to some teeth removed for silly mistakes I’ve made in the past, all the way down to infected teeth, I’ve seen it and been through it all. So if anyone can tell you to look after your teeth, I can definitely stand up and say please do because the pain isn’t worth it.
This electric toothbrush retails at £149, this sleek and light weight toothbrush claims to help remove plaque build up, help get rid of bacteria in the mouth using an LED sensor, and you can even use the toothbrush without toothpaste. Accessories such as additional heads can be bought for £12.99.
Branching out to appeal to new customers, Funko announced that they are collaborating with Disney to create a Villain inspired collection with a twist. Not the usual Funko figurines to be seen here, but a collectible makeup palette stylized in the famous style 3D rendering of the selected villain head. Confirmed so far are 4 Villains. Read more to see what Villains are part of this collaboration and to take a deeper look into the collection.
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!
