August Favourites

Good afternoon guys. It’s that time again where I bring you a bunch of my favourite products for August. So without further ado, here they are!

20200823_160215

First up is the Robinsons Crushed Lime & Mint fruit cordial. Guys! This is so good. It is the perfect summery drink and we have got through so many bottles of this. So tasty!

Next is the Wilkin & Sons ‘Old Times’ orange marmalade. I have always liked marmalade but this one is definitely my favourite. Since lockdown, I have really got in to having marmalade on sourdough bread. Now I can’t function in the morning without it…and a coffee of course!

I have been working with Dermalogica for over a year now as a #skinfluencer and every time they send me one of their new products it feels like Christmas. The Hydro Masque Exfoliant arrived the other day and I have used it three times already. This is such an amazing product with these amazing spheres which exfoliates with bamboo and hydrates with snow mushroom. You work the spheres into your skin until they disappear and leave the product on for five minutes before washing off. I am a huge fan! New favourite!

We found a new TV series on Netflix and we absolutely loved it! I watched season one of Dirty John by myself but we watched the second series together which is about Betty Broderick. So gripping and really good if you are looking for a new short series to watch.

I was kindly sent these products by Love Raw who make the BEST vegan chocolate ever! I had never tried vegan chocolate before but now, I would choose to get this instead of non-vegan chocolate. There was another one they sent me but I ate it before I got this photo! Pop on over to their website to see their full range https://eatloveraw.com 

This is my second Dr Paw Paw product in the last two months and I love this peachy colour. Honestly, since finding this brand I can’t believe I was using anything different for blush and a tinted lip stain. This product is smaller than the bright orange one I have but goes everywhere with me in my handbag. Such a gorgeous colour! 

I was on the hunt for a good top coat as I am getting back into painting my nails again! I found this one by Essie. It is the Couture Gel Top Coat and is such a great top coat for keeping a colour on. The reason why I never really paint my nails with a colour is because I hate when my colour chips. I have had the colour on for a few days now with this top coat on and I have painted a bathroom, got out in the garden and done other DIY bits. Not a single chip yet!

Indeora sent me their coconut and vanilla deodorant to try and I have been using it for the last two weeks. It is vegan and cruelty free, is a unique and natural magnesium formula and this bottle is supposed to last up to 3 months with 400 sprays. The smell is gorgeous! The one thing I would say is you need to persevere with it. I would also say that if you shave under your arms to not spray on straight away and to wait for an hour or so before popping it on. A very good natural deodorant. Thank you guys for sending it to me. Here is their website https://www.indeora.com/

Finally is this gorgeous loungewear set from Marks and Spencer. When I saw this I ordered it straight away and boy am I glad I did! I am living in this whilst at home. It makes me feel like I am dressed for the day but super comfy. You can also get a short sleeve top to go with the bottoms. I have linked all of the pieces below:

June Favourites

Good morning gorgeous people. It’s about time I did a favourites blog post for June before the month is over. Unfortunately this month I wasn’t as organised and didn’t get a photo of all of the products and things I will be talking about so I will just have to tell you the names instead.

Burts Bees

This month I purchased two products from Burts Bees which go with me in my handbag everywhere. First up is the 100% natural ‘All Aglow Lip and Cheek Stick’ in shade Blush Bay. I have been using this as my blush and highlighter for the past month and absolutely love it. It is super easy to apply and who doesn’t love a two in one? The second product from Burts Bees is their tinted lip balm. Mine is in shade Hibiscus and is a lovely deep pink colour. It’s really moisturising and the colour looks like you’re wearing a lipstick.

Typology

I was kindly gifted some items from Typology and have been really enjoying using them in my skincare routine recently. The three products that I have been using day in and day out are: Radiance Serum (Vitamin C 11%), Hyaluronic Acid Serum (3% + 2% B5) and their periodic serums which are 4 serums designed to meet the needs of the 4 weeks of your menstrual cycle. All of these products have been tried and tested. I have used three of the bottles in the periodic serums and love them all! I apply the Radiance Serum before bed three nights a week and the Hyaluronic Acid Serum twice a week. My skin has been plumper and brighter and I have really enjoyed adding these to my skincare collection. https://uk.typology.com/

Little Fires Everywhere

You might have seen this TV show on Amazon Prime during lockdown – I mean, what else has there been to do? This was a slow burner for me but when I got to episode four I was hooked! I cried all the way through the last episode haha. It tackles issues of race and relationships and the acting is amazing.

Gardening

I have delved into the world of gardening over the past few months and I am loving it. We don’t have a very big garden and most of our plants are in pots but I thought I would tell you about two companies I have been very impressed with who deliver.

https://www.plantloveuk.co.uk/ This company has been supporting local Worcestershire & Herefordshire wholesale growers throughout the lockdown rehome their acres of plants by providing a home delivery service. Their selection of plants is beautiful and the customer service was fantastic. For anyone in the area who can’t get out to a garden centre then this is for you. Thanks mum for the recommendation!

https://middletonnurseries.co.uk/ My mum also recommended this site to me after I saw how beautiful her salvias where in her garden during a lockdown socially distanced visit. I ordered 4 salvias which came in excellent condition and all for about £20 with postage. The plants came very quickly and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. They are located in Staffordshire but deliver to a wide area.

Thinking about it, there are probably so many more things I could talk about this month from the dresses I have found to the storage solutions we have used at home. I do pop a lot of content on my Instagram so if you are interested in seeing some of the plants I ordered, the makeup I have talked about in this blog post or just pretty photographs of interiors and lifestyle then please head on over there and follow me.

Happy Sunday guys x

High Street Glow

Happy Sunday gang! I hope everyone has had a great weekend. ♥️

Whenever I think about makeup, I think about how to get that glow. I have written a couple of blog posts about different makeup routines trying out different products but this is my every day go-to makeup look.

I have been using these same products now for months and they are all from the high street. As much as I would love to use higher end products, my bank balance just doesn’t stretch that far I am afraid. If you want an affordable glowy makeup routine then here are some incredible products that won’t let you down.

First up, Glow Cherie from L’Oreal Paris. Before I even found this, I was using Bonjour Sunshine Liquid Bronzer by L’Oreal – equally as amazing. Glow Cherie wakes up your skin with a luminous, radiant glow. This hydrating skin enhancer covers imperfections and skin instantly appears healthier and glowing. Sometimes I only wear this!

If I want that extra glowy, dewy look then I put a pump of Glow Cherie mixed with No 7’s Skin Illuminator and Miracle Glow from Max Factor. This combination is flawless. All of these products can be used on their own but I love mixing them together.

The concealer I have been using for years now is L’Oreal’s True Match The One in shade Ivory. The coverage is great and really covers up those dark circles and blemishes.

With four pigmented shades, L’Oreal Paris La Vie En Glow Highlighting Palette is a must have addition to anyone’s makeup bag. The colours in the palette are warming on the skin and give you that radiance.

Let’s talk about Iconic London. I have been using the original illuminating drops for about three years now and I am still obsessed. You only need a tiny bit and you have cheek bones for days.

Finally, 24h Eyeshadow from Bourjois in shade Beige brings the look together. You know those makeup tutorials we all watch with the inner eye highlight? Look no further! Admittedly, this is a new addition to my makeup bag but I am loving it so far.

You can pick these products up anywhere – on the high street, on Amazon and on Ebay brand new. If you want that long lasting glowy look, I can say that I have tried and tested them all and that my daily makeup routine is easy, gorgeous and most importantly affordable. ✨

Going Nude

I have always been a nude nails kinda gal. A pink nude, a brown nude or just a plain nothing nude.

Here are some of my favourite nudes for this season.

Revlon 165 Romantique – The pinkest nude of the bunch. Two coats gives a really subtle splash of pink to your nails. Quite hard wearing with a top coat.

Essie Spaghetti Strap – One of the lighter nudes I have tried. Very natural looking with two coats and doesn’t really chip with a top coat.

Essie Touch Up – The darkest nude. Gorgeous deep pink. With two coats it looks quite purple. Long lasting and looks beautiful on.

Anny 500 Opalescent – My absolute favourite nude. It catches the light beautifully. Very long lasting and even when it chips you can’t see it. I can wear this for over two weeks and it still look fresh.

L’Oréal 116 Café De Nuit – The brownest nude. Beautiful beige natural colour and very long lasting with a top coat.

Sally Hansen 220 Café Au Lait – One of the more natural nude colours. Sally Hansen does great quality varnishes and this one is no exception.

All of these nudes are really subtle and last well with no chipping. Definitely a must have for the spring season. 💅🏼

Featured #2

Over the past few months I have connected with some of the most lovely people. People are so friendly, real and honest and it really does feel like a community. It is so nice to find out about other content creators and their stories.

Here are this month’s featured accounts.


Name: Megan
Age: Twenties
Instagram handle: @idkmegsx
Why did you decide to start the account?: I love writing, not to sound too cliche. I like to share my stories, and give the raw stories that some decide not to tell. I like to focus on all aspects of my life and not just all the happier parts. My life has had many ups and downs so its a great way to document those, and also offer some comfort for people who are feeling a bit down in the dumps and know they are not the only ones who are feeling like that. I also love to share my embarrassing stories (there’s a few) and post a bit off fluff to as I don’t want my blog just to be negative. My blog is my outlet, but I also think it’s full of good advice too (or at least that’s what my friends tell me).
Top 3 tips:
1. Be yourself, don’t try and fit in with what you think is popular
2. Write when you feel like writing because that is the truest and rawest stuff and usually the best stuff too
3. It takes time to get where you want to be, so don’t compare how you’re doing to someone else, everything in life happens when it happens.

Name: Daisy Pineva
Age: 31
Insta handle: @daisypineva
How long have you been doing this? 2 months
Why did you decide to start the account? I have always loved fashion and putting outfits together made me so excited! I loved that different outfits would match my mood and that fashion gave me confidence to express myself! Just before Christmas I discovered Lorna Luxe on Instagram and fell in love with her style and feed and read her blog with her tips and advice on becoming a blogger/Instagrammer. I felt so inspired and thought if I don’t go for it now I never will. I had lots of stuff I had bought in the sale and that’s how I started! I feel so happy I went for it because I feel like I’m doing something that I have always loved!
Top 3 tips
1. First go for it! Don’t make excuses like I did for years and just do what you love! I know lots of people say the market is saturated and this and that but I fully believe there is a community for everyone who genuinely has a passion!
2. Secondly, engage with people’s content and people who engage on your post all the time ! Its like if somebody on the street commented on your outfit and you didn’t say anything back! So always be kind, grateful and positive and project that to like minded people!

3. Lastly, be yourself and let it come through in your posts! Think about what kind of message you want to send to people engaging with your posts. Be real in a perfectly fake platform!


Name: Charlie McLean
Age: 28
Insta handle: @charlielmclean
How long have you been doing this? So I’ve been working with/on social media for a couple of years, my business is mainly on Instagram, but have only taken it full time since September 2018. Then I recently decided to step it up a notch by putting out more content on my IGTV and then deciding to start a YouTube channel!
Why did you decide to start the account? I started this line of work because I just didn’t want to be stuck in a job for the next 40 years. I loved the idea of having freedom and flexibility, and being able to live life on my terms. I found a way to be my own boss and jumped straight in!
Top 3 tips
1. CONSISTENCY! Whether you want to be a blogger, youtuber, or anything else, you need to be consistent. Success never happens over night, it usually takes a long time of working hard behind the scenes before someone takes off. Keep putting out content you love and enjoy the journey!
2. Don’t compare yourself to others. When you’re working online/on social media, it’s easy to start comparing yourself to other people. You have to remember that everyone is on their own journey and everyone has their own struggles, just stay in your lane and be true to yourself.
3. ADD VALUE! Think how you can stand out from the crowd. If you’re looking to impact others and add value, you will develop a loyal following. People will begin to look forward to your content because they are gaining something from it. You will end up building a community of like-minded people who will connect and engage with your content!

Name: Jennifer Sanchez Bastida
Age: 33
Insta handle: @jennifer_sanchez_bastida
How long you have been doing this? I found my passion for Instagram 1 year and a half ago. I fell in love with the platform and the ease with which it allows you to share your experiences and passions with a wide audience. At the beginning of this year I made a conscious decision to up my game by posting quality content daily, investing in an IPhone Xs for better quality pictures and experimenting with my style.
Why did you decide to start the account? I moved to London six years ago, from Barcelona and I’ve found this city to be a constant source of inspiration. I have been able to embrace and cultivate my strong passions for fashion and coffee shops, that I’m compelled to share them with my amazing growing insta family, who inspire me on daily basis with their talent, warmth and generosity of spirit. I’m so thankful for their support, it means the world to me. Moreover, I really enjoy creating content with my fiancé’s help who takes all my pictures and supports me so much with my vision.  We are both creative people( I am a film producer and he is a writer, director and actor) and recently we have opened our own film production company called Reality Break Films.

Top 3 tips: Let your personality shine, you are unique, embrace it and find your own style. Know your audience and engage with them on daily basis. Post content consistently (at least once a day)


Name: Megan Mills
Age: 23
Insta handle: @megannmillls
How long have you been doing this? I have been doing this for about 4 weeks! So not too long at all.
Why did you decide to start the account? Right now I am a college student at Utah State University going into marketing. I have always loved the advertising and design aspect of marketing, and actually had a really good friend who had begun her instagram influencing journey about a year ago. This fall I ended up reconnecting with her in a marketing class we had together and doing a couple of photo shoots just for fun! At first, I was hesitant to start a new instagram page because I didn’t necessarily want to put myself out there. But as a couple days went by I thought, Why Not?! I love fashion and taking pictures so it seemed like a perfect fit. And honestly it has been so much fun, I am so glad that I began to start blogging.
Top 3 tips
I am obviously no expert having just started a couple weeks ago but I will share the three main things that have helped me grow.
1. Engagement! Make sure to like and comment on other blogger’s posts. That way you will be able to build relationships and connections and they are likely to reciprocate!
2. Consistency! This was a hard one for me, especially at the beginning but it is so important to stay consistent with your posts! Try to post everyday especially while you are trying to grow and post around the same time each day.
3. Hashtags! I have found through experience that it is so important to use relevant hashtags! If you are going into blogging or fashion I could recommend using hashtags that are associated with that. That way you will be included in the community who also uses those hashtags.

 

Thank you so much to all these lovely ladies for their time. I really appreciate it and I love finding out about the people behind the photos. ❤️

 


April Skin Care

I can’t believe it is April already! Is anyone else feeling like that? With the ever changing weather and our fingers crossed for some sun soon, I have found some of my fave skin care products for this month.

IMG_2267

First up, let’s talk about the moisturiser. This is something I rediscovered recently and I am so glad I did. It is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s sixth year in partnership with M&S and I am still loving her range of products. The moisturiser is so rich and nourishing for the skin, especially when one minute it’s coat weather and the next the vest tops are coming out. It leaves your skin with a beautiful scent too and is perfect for someone who wants a luxurious, long-lasting moisturiser. Unfortunately, this specific product is discontinued but in store at the moment is her ‘Divine Body Cream’ which is a very similar product and is only £10!

Guys let’s talk about this gold face mask. Oh my goodness! I love a good peel off face mask and have tried so many different ones from charcoal to cucumber. Whilst I have a few more firm faves, this one was gifted to me from friends. Best gift ever! It’s the 24K Gold Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask and retails for £22 in the UK on the brands website, Gold By Glow. Why gold? Gold is a natural antioxidant, it boosts collagen and stimulates cell renewal. It comes in beautiful packaging and this rather in your face bottle that stands out on the bathroom shelf. The pump can sometimes get a bit gunked up so regular cleaning of it is recommended. Hello glowing skin!

Finally, Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Mask. I don’t even have words. Whilst it is the most expensive face mask I have ever tried retailing at £62 for 4 masks, it is an absolute game changer. It is applied like any other sheet mask for 10-15 minutes and then you just rub in the excess product after. Your skin instantly looks flawless, glowing and feels nourished and smooth. It brightens up dull skin and you can really see it. It’s definitely one I like to use for special occasions given the price tag but a must try! Trust me!

*No paid partnerships…I wish!*

Love Is In The Hair

Whether it’s simple metallic bobby pins or worded barrettes, these accessories can make or break an outfit.Hair clips, clasps, bobby pins and more have been around for a few seasons now but the trend seemed to explode when the New Year hit.

Here’s what I have found so far all between £0-15. Swarovski clips and some glittery slides from Accessorize, diamanté grips and metallic bobby pins and hair slides from Boots which I like to use a lot of layered up, leopard print and tortoise shell clips from Superdrug and a statement cherry design clip from ASOS. 🍒

If you’re looking to buy some beautiful vintage style hair clips, then get on eBay. They have some gorgeous statement hair accessories for bargain prices. I have two on the way for under £3 with postage. Urban Outfitters and Topshop also have a great variety but they are a little more pricey.

Putting in a hair clip seems like an easy task but it’s all about the placement. At the moment I have slightly shorter hair than I would normally have and I find it isn’t as easy to position. However, practice makes perfect.

Size Matters

Minis. Let’s talk about them. Who else takes all the minis with them when they check out of a hotel? I have a whole bag full of the most divine minis from L’Occitane and just can’t bring myself to use them unless it’s for a weekend away or a little holiday somewhere.

I was gifted a L’Occitane advent calendar a few years ago and boy was I missing out before. The products are beautiful and there is such a variety I couldn’t believe it.

Here are some of my favourite products from L’Occitane.

 

From moisturisers to shower gels and hand creams to perfumes, the collection in the advent calendar is one of the best I have seen in beauty and skin care advent calendars.

Perfumes: Néroli & Orchidée, Terre de Lumière, Verbena and Arlésienne. I bought full bottles of  Arlésienne and Néroli & Orchidée which I originally purchased as my wedding fragrance. All the perfumes are very different and I would definitely recommend L’Occitane if anyone wanted to try a new scent. The bottles are so convenient to take on  nights out, on a date to freshen up and just to keep in your handbag.

Other faves are the Comforting Cream, Immortelle Cleansing Oil, Essential Water, Ultra Rich Lotion, Shower Cream, Milk Concentrate with Almond Milk and Relaxing Shower Gel. The Divine Youth Oil was another favourite but I used it all up.

Even though they are minis, they go a long way. L’Occitane products are high quality and are some of the best higher end skin care products I have used. I know December is a few months away yet but keep your eyes peeled for their new sets this year.

No Makeup Makeup

On my no makeup days I wanted to share with you guys what I use to get that no makeup makeup look. It’s only four products and it’s the perfect look for the warmer weather and when you just can’t be bothered to do a full face (which is me every day really!)

IMG_1478

Maybelline Face Studio Illuminating Primer

Maybelline New York Master Blush – shade Heat

L’Oreal True Match Concealer – shade Ivory

L’Oreal Paris Rouge Signature – 110 shade I Empower

Before I apply any make up I always use a moisturiser with SPF and then I put on a primer. Primer is an absolute must if you stand a chance of your makeup lasting all day. There are so many different primers out there and Maybelline have a huge range of them depending on what finish you want. Check out Maybelline’s range on their website.

Concealer is something I always carry with me. L’Oreal’s True Match is one of my favourite high street concealers. I always buy a concealer that is a few shades lighter than my skin colour. I apply it in a triangle under the eye and in any places where there is redness or a blemish. Instantly makes you look more awake before you have had your morning coffee.

I really liked this pinky shade of blush by Maybelline for a no makeup look to add a pop of colour. It brightens up your complexion and again, makes you look a bit more alive in those mornings when you want to hit that snooze button.

Finally, my favourite product I have found so far this month is the L’Oreal Paris Rouge Signature lip colour in shade I Empower. I saw Lydia Millen review this on her YouTube channel and just had to get it. It feels amazing and soft when applied and has good staying power. There is a range of beautiful shades so check them out on the L’Oreal website.

All of these products are super affordable, new in stock and are must haves for the spring. Again, all these recommendations are not ads with brands.

Featured #1

Since starting my blogging journey I have been spending a lot of time creating my own content, telling my story and writing about what I love. In addition to this, I have also been really inspired by other bloggers and their content.

With that being said, I want to write a featured blog once a month showcasing bloggers and Instagram accounts that I am loving at the moment. These ladies all have their own stories and their content is just beautiful. From fashion to beauty, lifestyle to travel, interiors to make up – I wanted to share their stories with you because they are really worth reading about. Please use the links to follow their blogs and Insta pages. 


Name: Sarah Jane Hitchings
Age: 34
How long have you had @cotswoldscottage for?
I’ve had my home account for just over a month, started 08.02.19 (I’ve been on insta personally for a few years).
Why did you decided to start the account?
I was following lots of home accounts and find interiors really interesting. I’m proud of my home and thought if I shared it I would inspire more to make more changes and be bolder. 
Top 3 tips
1. Research similar accounts and look at what hashtags they use
2. Comment on posts you like as often as possible. It’s lovely to receive a comment on your post.
3. Take a few photos at different angles to get the right one for the post. Then leave them in your camera roll for another time. 

How long have you had @myunsecretmumdiary for?
About 18 months.
Why did you decided to start the account?
I decided to go into blogging because I wanted to share my struggles with depression initially, then when time passed and I became pregnant and happier I wanted to share my mum-to-be style. Now it’s mainly about the fashion because it’s my first love (but I still to and fro from mental health because it’s a struggle for me and very much important to me).
Top 3 tips
1. Patience, seriously. It doesn’t happen overnight. And it’s OK if you take a few breaks here and there, just cut yourself some slack and come back to it when you’re ready.
2.  Stay true to you- it’s not rewarding if you don’t do you. You can’t post about things you don’t believe in. Style is individual so post about the styles and subjects you really love, and nothing else! That’s what makes it uplifting.
3. Know what’s good and bad for you. It’s a learning curve. It’s all well and good following thousands of people but you want those people to really be other bloggers you believe in and enjoy following. Following a load of people that make you feel bad about yourself (through no fault of their own) because they give you major life envy or amplify personal insecurities can be addictive but it’s not good for you mentally. Focus on the people that make you feel good! 

Name: Kate
How long have you had @kandid_withak for?
I took an interest in photography 4/5 years ago, but just started blog recently – been a goal to start travel blog for a while now and finally had the opportunity to do so, with a bit of encouragement from a good friend!
Why did you decided to start the account?
I enjoy taking pictures and love writing. A few friends had been asking me for travel tips for various places across the globe so thought it would be a great idea to write a blog that can help others with their travels. I also found many travel blogs useful in finding hidden secrets of a destination and all the best cafes. 
Top 3 tips
1. Plan your time effectively to fit around your normal working hours – stay organised. 
2. Focus on area that you have a real passion for and make this come across in your writing.
3. Just do it! Don’t be afraid of other people’s opinions – if you enjoy it, then that is all that matters. Just dive in at the deep end!

How long have you had @erin_angela_xo for?
I have been blogging for for approximately two and a half years. I began my blog in the summer of 2016.
Why did you decided to start the account?
I’ve always loved makeup and fashion. I regularly read blogs and magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Vogue, which inspired me to start researching blogging. I decided to begin my blog as a way to share my own makeup tips, product reviews and makeup tutorials. 
Top 3 tips
1. Identify your niche. Will you blog about beauty, home decor or fashion? Identifying your niche early in your blogging journey is a great way to get started.
2. Don’t give up – Blogging takes time and effort. It can become frustrating when you first start blogging, but it becomes easier with time and practice!
3. An editorial calendar is a lifesaver – About a week after I started my blog, I developed an editorial calendar to identify when and what to post. An editorial calendar not only kept my content organized, but it was a helpful tool to keep my ideas and inspiration flowing. 

How long have you had @abigailkathleenlondon for?
3 years
Why did you decided to start the account?
I started blogging when I was severely depressed, I had read a magazine about mental health bloggers and a friend of mine Tanya is also a blogger. I decided to set up my own London lifestyle blog as a distraction, to keep me busy and creative. I fell in love with creating content, it allowed me to continue my photography as more than a hobby.
Top 3 tips
1. You don’t need flashy laptops and cameras. I have run my blog from my phone and iPad. A laptop does make life easier but don’t feel you need to spend a fortune on one.
2. Everything you need to know is free on Google and YouTube such as photo editing and SEO. I am always reading new articles about SEO through Google on my bus journeys.
3. Do not focus on what others are doing. Spend more time on creating content you love and the numbers and opportunities will eventually follow but be patient! Nothing happens overnight. I didn’t get my first opportunity until I had been blogging for 7 months. At the end of every post have a unique sign off and a little sentence to encourage readers to hit that follow button and a link to follow you on your preferred social platform (IG, FB etc)

Blogging is a community and a great platform to connect with new people. I am so glad to have found these women and hopefully sharing their stories has inspired you as much as it has me.
