Month: May 2017

May Glossy Box

I always feel every month its a battle of the boxes between GB and LF boxes. I didn’t post about the April Glossy box last month, there were some good products but I just didn’t want to post about it but this month I wanted to share my thoughts.

If you saw my Look Fantastic May review, then you’d know I got this product, Scrub Love, but a different scent.. this is Cucumber and Bamboo, is activated charcoal, and claims to be cleansing, purifying and detoxifying. I love love love the coconut and cranberry one so I have high hopes for this too.

-417 foot nourishing cream, I love a foot cream and this smells super nice and not the traditional foot cream smell. Looking forward to using this next time I do a pedicure on myself (due one just before the wedding haha)

PawPaw Original Balm, I have seen this on various blog posts, videos and tweets so really happy this is in this month’s box. I used it on my lips straight away and made them so soft! It says it can be used for the lips, skin, hair and nails etc. It’s also fragrance free. This is an awesome sized sample too.

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy diamond top coat…. I always need a top coat so will get use out of this. Hopefully it’ll be good to help with chipping.

And last but not least Ruby Blush, there’s no shade name on this but says Coral on the leaflet inside the box, it’s a matte peach which makes a nice change from the shimmery peaches I own. It’s quite chalky but pigmented.

So overall, it’s not a bad box! XO


Q & A

This is my first Q&A, I was a little nervous about posting on Twitter asking for questions in case no one replied haha and was so happy to receive some! So here goes:

What is your favourite cosmetic brand? This is a tricky one for me but I think MAC has to be my favourite at the moment as love their foundation and lipsticks.

If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life what would you choose? Mascara hands down, with lip balm a very close second… Although not sure how I would manage without concealer haha…

Would you rather have whiskers like a cat for the rest of your life or ears like a dog? This made me chuckle, instantly I thought whiskers but I think the ears like a dog and never wear my hair up again.

Which brand would you love to work with on your blog? Easy… Liz Earle, I love their products so much!

Best advice to avoid creasing under the eye? I used to struggle with this so bad, but I think finding a good concealer that doesn’t crease much in the first place, and then setting with a translucent powder.

Whats the best facial oil for sensitive skin? I love the Liz Earle Superskin facial oil, however, is quite pricey. If you’re sensitive anything with Aloe or Lavender I find work well. Coconut oil can be warmed in the hands to make a nice facial oil too.

What is your favourite thing to cook? Cheesy pasta… or Lasagne.

What are your pet peeves? Chewing with your mouth open or just loudly… Just no thank you…

Who is your blogging inspiration? This is really difficult as I have so many blogs I love so much! But the person that motivated me to blog was Anna Does Makeup… or Anna Edit as she is now.

If you were Queen for the day what would you make illegal? Working or going to school on your birthday!

Whats the most romantic thing anybody has ever done for you? This has to be when James proposed to me in Tenerife on the balcony as the sun was setting, love this memory.

If you had to move abroad tomorrow, where would you go and who would you take with you? New York, I have been there once and constantly dream of it and I would take my other half and son… and ideally my mum, dad, brother, his wife and my nieces and nephew.

I think I will leave the questions there! Hope you learnt a little something about me! XO
