Brand Focus – H&M Beauty

Brand Focus - H&M - 1

Since H&M released their new revamped beauty range I have gone a little bit crazy at my local stand more than once. I’ve shared a couple of haul posts on here showcasing their beautiful new range – H&M Beauty Haul and Another H&M Beauty Haul and it’s safe to say I am super impressed with the brand. Excellent quality products for an affordable price will always win me over and today I am sharing my favourites.

How I Take My Blog Photos

How I Take My Blog Photos - 1

I’ve been blogging for a few years now and my photography has changed quite a bit since I started. I will be sharing a post on how I edit my blog photos soon but I thought I would share how I take my blog photos first. I’ve done a lot of experimenting to get to a place where I’m happy with how my photos look but I still like to change things up every now and again.

Kate Spade Agenda VS Erin Condren Life Planner

Kate Spade Agenda VS Erin Condren Life Planner - 1

I have shared a lot of love for my new Erin Condren Life Planner recently, some may think it silly that I could get so excited over a planner but it’s pretty safe to say I love my stationery and these things thrill me enormously. I mentioned how I would write a comparison post as I’ve test run both planners now. The Kate Spade Agenda is becoming a lot more popular now that it’s more accessible in the UK and the Erin Condren Life Planner seems to be a pretty big deal in the US. So it’s time, Kate Spade Agenda VS Erin Condren Life Planner.

Avéne Sensitive Skin Saviour Kit

Avéne Sensitive Skin Saviour Kit - 1

It’s no secret that I love Avéne, it’s probably my favourite skincare brand now and it has never let me down. Suffering with super sensitive allergy prone skin can be really difficult as anything can set off a reaction. Luckily I have now found my brand that suits my picky skin perfectly. This little Avéne Sensitive Skin Saviour Kitis perfect for travling, festivals, camping or for just popping in your bag incase of emergencies.

River Island Mini Outfits

River Island Mini - Outfits - 1

I recently posted a River Island Mini Haul sharing some lovely items from the River Island baby boy range and mentioned how I would be sharing a couple of outfit posts featuring the clothes, instead of two separate posts, I decided to add two outfits together in this post and share the other set another time.

Once the parcel arrived I choose one of my favourite outfits and took George straight to the park to get snapping. I got G dressed, strapped him in the pram and no joke, he was sick all down his new shirt. Luckily I whipped out a cloth and mopped it up before it could effect the shirt too much. But off we went anyway and yes I took it straight off when he got home to wash it, typical baby troubles.

Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Primer

1 RedKen Pillow Proof Treatment Primer

When I had long hair it took so long to dry, I hated doing it so much that I would have rather slept on it wet and dealt with the crazy bed hair in the morning than sit for one minute longer blasting myself with hot air. It’s partly why I cut my hair so short, I was too darn lazy to deal with the length, however I now regret my drastic hair chop even more now that I have the RedKen Pillow Proof Primer* in my life.

H&M Brush Cleanser

1 H&M Brush Cleanser Review

When you’re a bit obsessed with makeup brushes it’s great because you end up having a huge selection. You have five different face brushes, 20 different eyeshadow brushes etc, you get the gist. What isn’t great is when you have to clean them all. Does anyone actually enjoy washing their makeup brushes? With that said I try to deep clean my face brushes every week, when I remember, and I spot clean eyeshadow/brow brushes every couple of days. I’ve been on the look out for an affordable brush cleaner for a while and finally stumbled across the H&M Brush Cleanser.

A while back I was scent a little surprise card from Escentual asking to share on Twitter a beauty product that I have been lusting after. I had been lusting after the new Paco Rabanne scent for a long time, ever since I smelt it at Christmas so it’s the first thing that sprang to mind. Today’s post will be a full review of the beautiful scent Olympéa*.

Etsy Sticker Haul

Etsy Sticker Haul - 1

For Christmas I received a Kate Spade planner, something I have wanted for years. I love it, it’s so pretty and compact and I enjoyed being different and decorating the inside differently to everyone else. However after watching numerous Plan With Me videos on YouTube my sister and I finally caved and bought ourselves an Erin Condren planner, we just couldn’t resist. Once this had been ordered I went on a little spending spree on Etsy for some pretty new stickers to kit out my new planner so today’s post is an Etsy sticker haul.

Erin Condren Life Planner

If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I’ve been rather excited over a certain delivery. That delivery finally arrived and it was the new Erin Condren Life Planner. Although I only got my Kate Spade Planner this past Christmas, my sister and I decided we would finally cave and get ourselves the new Erin Condren planners instead. I plan on writing a Kate Spade VS Erin Condren planner very soon, but for today’s post I will be going over a run down of the pricing, order process, delivery, customs and the planner itself.

I hope you like them and as always, August’s will be up at the beginning of next month. I was asked last month if I could design some wallpaper backgrounds for phones but I didn’t have time for it this month but hopefully next month!

NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade

NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade - 1

I recently posted a Mini NYX Haul and promised that I would write a full review on the NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade. I’ve wanted to try the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade for a while now but decided to opt for a cheaper option that sounded just as good. Ever since NYX landed on the shelves of Boots, I’ve been a lot more attracted to buying from the brand now that it’s more accessible. I think everyone struggles with ordering new makeup online as swatches are not always accurate, however now that the brand is readily available I’m more than happy to go on a spending spree.

George’s 6 Month Update

1 - George 6 Month Update

It’s been a while since I shared any type of update regarding George’s progression so today I thought I would share a little update on how he’s getting on. The month of May seemed to have a lot going on for him, everything happened at once but he’s been amazing through it all. He will be 7 months old at the end of this month, how is that possible? It’s going so quickly but I love all the milestones of their first years.

Matte Lips

For someone who doesn’t wear a lot of lip products I sure have jumped on the matte lip band wagon. Not only do I own a silly amount, I bought seven in one week….*shakes head* The allure of only having to apply once and the vast amount of products available have just sucked me in. In this post I will be sharing a quick run down of all 8 matte lip products.

George’s Nursery

One of the most exciting things for me during my pregnancy was decorating a nursery. I said back then how I knew exactly what I wanted for a boy but no idea what I wanted for a girl. It’s been so fun picking different little pieces out and although it’s not exactly how I want it, I still love it and thought I would share George’s Nursery with you all.

Heidi Swapp Minc Toner Ink Pen

1 Heidi Swapp Minc Tonar Ink Pen

I have always been obsessed with crafts, making things, drawing you name it, growing up I used to do it. A few years ago I would sit at home colouring to relax long before adult colouring books became a thing. If you’ve been a follower of my blog for a while you will know that I do Project Life, although I’m seriously behind, but any craft that I can get stuck into I always enjoy.

Since opening my online shop my love for stationery has reached a serious level, I’m obsessed with looking at new stationery, buying new things even if they never get used and when I heard that you could now foil your own products I just needed to join in. Today I will be talking about the Heidi Swapp Minc Toner Ink Pen.
