I’ve finally finished my course of Invisalign! After 58 weeks of changing aligners, brushing my teeth up to 6 times a day, tears, complaining and sulking, it’s over. It’s taken me just over a year to finish and I’m waiting for my retainers to arrive. So, I thought I’d do a little run down of some things that have happened, basically my Invisalign story. If anyone has any specific questions then I’d love to be able to help, so either leave me a comment or tweet me!
Teeth. They give us endless problems. I know this all too well as I’m right at the end of my Invisalign treatments which I’ll be writing about super soon! From pain to paranoia, they can be a real source of stress. A recent BUPA study revealed that bad teeth stop one in four people smiling in photos and I’m definitely part of this statistic. Do we care for the wrong reasons? Of course, you should care about your teeth, I do so much more since having my braces, I probably care a lot more now than I ever did. Proper dental hygiene is essential for keeping them healthy.
Adding technology into your skincare routine has definitely become seriously popular over the past few years. I mean, I saw a Face Gym when I was walking down the Kings Road in Chelsea when we last went to London. WTF is a Face Gym? Answers on a postcard plz!
What really are the benefits of all these gadgets and gizmos when it comes to skincare? Today I’m talking cleansing with my favourite new toy, the Magnitone Cleansing Brush. I’m comparing it throughout this post to the Foreo Luna because I’ve previously also owned this device.
Hey Christmas vouchers, presents to exchange and mon-aaay! It’s Boxing Day, it’s time to spend that dollar and get some stuff you actually want. Let’s talk beauty bargains.
First up an absolute steal of three of Benefit’s amazing tinted lip balms, Posiebalm mini, Benebalm mini and Chachabalm mini in a super cute Benefit Lip Hydrator Trio for only £11.30! Next in line is this beautiful little Clarins 5 Minute Kit With BB Cream in Shade 02 which is £13.33 on Boots at the moment. You have the fab BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF25 in 02 Medium 15ml which I featured in this post (plot spoiler, I love it), there’s also the amazing Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 01 Rose Shimmer which is an awesome lip balm/gloss, the Be Long Mascara and a super cute tiny Blush Prodige 02 Soft Peach which is the perfect handbag size. Finally in the makeup stakes is the Smashbox Glosses To Go Light It Up Lip Gloss Set, also £13 from Boots and includes five shades; Bare Light, Orange Light, Fuchsia Light, Lilac Light and Ruby Light.
It’s not often that I write favourites posts but every few months I find a few things that I find myself really liking and it’s always good to mix up the content on here! Here are 6 (mostly skincare and beauty but with a fashion fave) products that have been giving me life in December!
1. Time For Tea?
When shopping with my bestie this weekend we were looking for a lipstick for her and I introduced her to the world of long-lasting liquid lipsticks, something she hadn’t tried before so I thought I’d put together a little post all about how to find the perfect lipstick, from shade to formula and everything in between.
Is your subscription box addiction getting the better of you? Never mind! Here’s a new one that you need to know about! Bodymonth is the mother of all subscription boxes and it’s packed full of things that you will actually use and need. Instead of randomly coloured eyeshadows and teeny tiny lipstick samples, Bodymonth is packed full of body care and beauty products that we’re all always running out of or forgetting to buy. It’s super useful.
Shopping for the ‘rents can be tricky at Christmas but over the years I like to think that I’m getting better. Here are a few of my favourite picks and ideas for the main people in our lives! From beauty to bookmarks, I’ve got it covered.
Pressies For Mums
If you’re mum is a beauty and skincare junkie then she’s probably pretty easy to buy for and Christmas can be a great time to really treat her! I may or may not have already picked up the beautiful Clarins Festive Eyeshadow Palette which is a glorious palette of 10 ultra-soft eyeshadows in warm, nude shades in three different textures and finishes. Every woman needs a stunning eyeshadow palette in her life and this is one of the best things on the market right now in my opinion.
Christmas is well and truly on its way and it’s time to start thinking about gifts if you haven’t already. Who am I kidding, we’ve been thinking about gifts since September, right? I have anyway. I’ve already done a couple of wintery and gift-themed posts but this one feels really festive!
This is my take on the Tailored Goth look from Topshop’s recent beauty tutorial. I created it with a few of the awesome Topshop beauty products, namely the amazing Matte Lip Bullet in Get Me Bodied which is a killer colour! I’m also wearing the Kajal Kohl Liner in Lucky 13 and the Matte Liner in Soot and the super cute rose gold Topshop Skull Choker.
