5 summer essentials in my beauty cupboard

Since actually getting myself a beauty cupboard in my new bathroom as opposed to just a crammed drawer of everything I have ever owned I’m feeling a bit more organised and wanted to share a few faves and a few newbies that have sneaked in.

First up my love for Magnitone continues but I also kind of hate mine right now. I bought some Soft & Gentle replacement heads and changed it up, probably should have done it months ago because now my face has exploded because it’s getting a deep clean. Ugh. I hate that I’ve broken out but I know that it’s because there was a load of crap there that needed to come out but break outs still suck. I feel like none of my products are working to really combat it either so I’m just hoping it’s a storm that will pass! I’ve spoken about this before in my ‘Why breakouts can be a good thing‘ post.

Brand discovery: Erborian

Don’t you love it when you discover a new brand that you haven’t heard of before and they’re stuff is totally cute and just works? This is how I’m feeling about Korean skincare and beauty brand Erborian right now. This packaging though, it’s so super cute and I’ve been loving these products so far. I get sent quite a few new launches from some lovely PRs and I don’t always blog about them all if they don’t set my world on fire but I’ve really fallen for this brand and wanted to share some of their lovely bits with you.

My Sunday haircare routine

Sorry, I can’t. I’m washing my hair.

Does anyone actually ever use that hilarious excuse? Maybe, I don’t know but I might start. I usually wash my hair every two days and then liberally spray my entire head in dry shampoo every other day. I used to wash my hair every day before dry shampoo was a thing and I am so glad we have all moved with the times because I just couldn’t be bothered to wash it every day these days. Sleep is definitely more of a necessity! My Sunday routine often consists of face masks and hair washing (post bathroom cleaning – obviously!).

Nars comes to Nottingham

Browsing beauty counters is something that I’ve loved for years. Swatching the shades, getting mini makeovers and walking away with a treat beautifully wrapped in a gorgeous brand’s packaging? The dream for beauty junkies, right? Totally is! So, this is why I was super excited when a new Nars counter landed in John Lewis in Nottingham city centre and I was invited down to check it out.

5 things on my September wish list

As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear. The day will start out freezing and you’ll be sweating by lunchtime. Nightmare. Anyway, seeing as it’s a whole new month I thought I’d share some items I’m lusting over for the new season.

6 beauty products I’m loving rn

I rarely purchase new makeup these days because I’m trying to use up everything I’ve already got but I have picked up some new bits over the past couple of weeks that I’m really enjoying so I wanted to share some of these gems with y’all.

We ran into some lovely Benefit samples at work and I went home with the Benefit GoGo Tint and the Benefit They’re Real Duo Shadow Blender which was a lovely surprise. Let’s start with the eyeshadow. The weird little applicator is impossible to use so let’s just forget about that. It’s tiny and you can not keep hold of it unless you have a pincer grip. But, the product itself, being the eyeshadow is a beautiful rich taupe-y brown shade and I’ve been using it almost everyday because it’s lovely and matte. The shimmery shade is also a great highlight colour and the formula of both is buttery and smooth and really long lasting.

7 things to do with a free weekend

When I say ‘free’ weekend I mean those super rare ones where you have absolutely zero plans! I had one last weekend for the first time in about 6 weeks. We’ve been up and down the country, zipping to various appointments, seeing friends and family and having city breaks. Check out my favourite place for coffee in Leeds and where we stayed if you’re interested. I love being busy but it almost becomes a novelty when you have a weekend that you can do anything that you want with. Here are 7 things that I like to do when I have all the time in the world.

Fresh Beauty & Haircare For Spring

It seems to be cold and grey and gross in the UK for so long that when the spring time rolls around and we actually get some sunshine we all freak out and think it’s summer (put those shorts away guys, it’s not warm!). But, it’s still kinda chilly but there are definitely some changes happening with the weather. My skin and hair always go a bit weird when the weather changes, does yours?

Boosting My Skincare Regime: Magnitone Precious Quartz Review

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.
