Lush Easter Event & Haul!

Hello! Welcome to my annual Lush event post and I'm going to start by saying how much I adore these, they're such a highlight to my busy schedule and it's always a pleasure to meet up with my local lovely bloggers. This year they made it really cute and personal, giving us little pots of fresh flowers, with our blog name on a label and I was smitten! The pot is still in pride of place at my dressing table, and although the flowers have wilted slightly, it still looks so beautiful. This year Lush have brought back some old favourites (like a certain sparkly egg!), but they've also expanded their easter line too. I'm going to be sharing a bit of both and then what we got at the end. I will say though that if you're a blogger yourself and a fan of lush, make sure you get in contact with your local store! Most of them run events just for bloggers, its a free and fun way to find out more about their products, see them in action and meet like minded lush-lovin-ladies too 🤗

Review | Anaqa Lashes & how to apply!

anaqa lashes nour lashes how to apply false eyelashes

Hello, todays blog post is going to be fairly short and sweet, but hopefully informative too!

I have become a little obsessed with falsies, as you will probably be aware of if you follow me on SC or IG! Recently I've been on the hunt to find the best of the best online and I'm pleased to tell you I've been really successful too 🙊, but thats for a separate post of its own! Today I'm going to be reviewing these gorgeous lashes from the IG company: AnaqaClothing and these particular ones are in the style 'Nour'*. There's also a 10% off discount code at the end of post, until stocks lasts!

I.G Tut #1 | Glitter Wing Details

Hello hello, I hope you're all having a great Sunday. I know I only just introduced a brand new series yesterday, but brace yourselves for a new one, because I had another brain wave and I'm really excited to share it with you all (again). I'm not 100% sure what I will be calling this, so atm I've left it as 'I.G Tut', but watch this space haha. Now I have always enjoyed making little makeup clips for the gram, even when the video length was just 15 seconds! I would diligently sit and cut down, speed up, find music and create mini clips, which I personally loved doing and I got a great response from my followers. The chances of me ever starting my own YouTube channel are slim to none, but that doesn't mean I can't utilise one of my favourite platforms and take advantage of their newer 1 minute allowance for videos. At the same time I don't think the videos alone are very useful, so I wanted to combine my main platform (my blog),  with my second largest base I.G and write posts to go along with it. I hope my IG followers find this useful ^_^ I'll be linking products, reviews, talking about techniques and giving you mini reviews of each of the products too.

Single Shadow Series #1 - Brow Bone & Nude Shades

I AM SO EXCITED TO FINALLY BE PUBLISHING THE FIRST POST OF MY NEW SERIES! This is one I have called the 'single shadows series', which is pretty self explanatory haha. I have a great many single shadows in my collection and I've wanted to review them all as efficiently as possible. So I devised a thorough system of firstly sorting my shades into colour families, and then selecting four shades for my quad, using them consistently for a couple of days and writing up a short review in my notes section. It's obviously going to take some months to get through them all! But its the only way I can really test out each shade properly and write a detailed review for my readers, so I truly hope they're helpful.

Teacher Training | 6 Months In!

Hello hello, I hope you're all doing well. Since it's been a whole 6 months since I began my teacher training journey, I thought it was appropriate to write a little update post for you all. Although I rarely get comments under these posts, the amount of feedback I get from you guys on social media makes me so happy! I'm glad these can be helpful in someway, especially if you are considering teacher training yourself. I have now also added a link in my sidebar, which has all my TT related posts if you're curious. OH! And, some exciting news, I am going to be featured on the UCAS teacher training blog!! It's safe to say I'm just a LIL bit chuffed about this 😝.

Review | Mehron Celebre HD Pro Cream Foundation in Medium-dark, Euroasia fair, medium 1, light olive and light 3

mehron celebre HD pro cream foundation in light 3, light olive, medium 1, euroasia fair, medium deep 1 review and swatch

Hello everyone! I am finally sitting down to write a review for the Mehron HD foundation, which has been around for quite some time, but shot to fame after Hrush used it on Kylie Jenner. This is the second cream foundation I have tried and it didn't take long for me to understand why one of my favourite bloggers, Oni (check out blog here) loves it so much. I had seen many beautiful photos of her makeup using this base and although I hadn't jumped at the chance to buy it, due to having enough bases, I decided to pick up the shade Euroasia Fair on the whim, to see if I would get on with it. Once I did, I realised I had to pick up a few more shades, for when I do the makeup of my family, so I now own 5 shades in total. One of the things that put me off a little from purchasing it beforehand was the difficulty with picking shades online. Whilst there are a few swatches, there aren't many, so I do hope this post will be helpful for those who are searching for theirs. I'm going to start with the review itself, then share the swatches and finally ending with how I ended up with four new shades instead of the typical two (and yes this involves a deal haha).
