FFS! Shaving in Style With Friction Free Shaving*


Hello, hello, helloooooo, and welcome back to my blog! Today I have a product review, from a company that I have been LOVING!

FFS (Friction Free Shaving) is a monthly subscription service. Starting at £5 a month, the idea behind the company is that, once a month you will receive a box with 4 razor heads inside, one for each week of the month. This way, you never forget to buy new razor heads, and you can change the head each week, making shaving much more hygienic!


Before this post, I wasn’t actually aware of how often you should change your razor head, so this has definitely opened my eyes in terms of hygiene! You should change it after around 5-7 shaves. Continue reading “FFS! Shaving in Style With Friction Free Shaving*”

Big, Bouncy Blow Dry: CurlME Review

Hello, hello, hello!

So, recently I was sent a brush set from Pro Blo. This set is the CurlME set, and it retails for £35. I was sent this set in exchange for a YouTube video, but I’ve decided to write a review on here to accompany the video!

Ok, so if you know me very well, you will know that I often don’t bother to do anything with my hair. I don’t even dry it, I let it naturally dry. The simple reason for this is that I am essentially rubbish at doing anything with my hair. My mother’s a hairdresser so I always let her do my hair growing up, and it wasn’t until I moved to university that I realised just how helpless I am when it comes to styling. Because of this reason, I didn’t have high hopes for this set, or my ability to use it anyway.

But, I am happy to say, I was completely wrong.

The set includes:

  • 1 Brush Handle
  • 6 Brush Barrels (2 large, 2 medium, 2 small)
  • 6 Clips
  • 1 How To/Safety leaflet
  • 1 Travel Bag

Another initial concern that I had after realising what came in the set, was that 6 barrels would not be enough to my whole head, I was wrong about that too. For reference, I have medium length, thin hair. However, if you do need more barrels, you can order various different sets, and you can even order individual barrels if, for example, there is one barrel size in particular that you are keen on.

In terms of value, I think this set is pretty good. I mean, obviously it depends how often you will use it, but in terms of what you get for the price, I think it’s definitely justified.

I’m not going to go into much detail about how to use the set in this post, as this is included in the video tutorial! But, the idea is basically that you blowdry a section your hair with one of the brush barrels attached to the handle, then you wind it into your hair, release the handle and clip it in, like a roller! You then leave this in your hair until it is completely cool, I leave mine for about 15 minutes. You can watch the full video tutorial of how to use the set HERE.


My hair is pretty hard to curl, I’ll be honest about that. Hairdressers have tried, and failed, to give me curly blow drys, even big curls with a large tong/curling wand, but my hair is tight curls or nothing, and I’d just sort of expected that. Never, in a million years, did I expect to love the results that this set gives me so much!


It’s easy to do, takes me around 25-30 minutes, lasts me three days and gives me salon quality curls that make me feel like a princess, what’s not to like?! Plus, the whole colour scheme of the sets is so on trend, I love the black and pink ombre!

This set has quickly become my ONLY hair care routine! I cannot stop using it, and my technique is improving with every use. I am honestly baffled, I’ve even tried it out on my mother’s hair and she loved it too!


If I could put into words how confident this new-do makes me feel, I would. However, my vocabulary simply isn’t good enough for that, so let the pictures in this post speak for themselves!


So there we have it. An affordable product that’s easy to use and gives a salon quality, oh-so-in-trend, curly blow dry. I think this is it, I think my life is complete.

Have you ever heard of Pro Blo? What’s your favourite hair style at the moment? Would you use a set like this? Let me know in the comments!

Love,

Favourites ✨

It’s that time of the season where I share everything I’ve been loving so far! And this post does not disappoint, I’ve been loving so many different things this season!

Let’s get straight to it because there’s quite a bit to get through…

Lancôme Juicy Shakers

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. A Lip oil with a slight pigment, these are so nourishing and look great too! My lips have seriously been thanking me for using these and I don’t think I’ll be forgetting about these any time soon. 

Fab Little Bag*


As well as being super cute, these are super functional. These are little biogradable bags which make tampon disposal a little easier. I love using these when I visit my friends houses as I can dispose of my tampon without being embarrassed and without flushing it down the loo! Fab invention. 

NYX Doll Eye Mascara


This mascara is just gorgeous and it’s quickly becoming my favourite. It’s so affordable and so much better than ones that I’ve tried of a higher price bracket. I’m in love with it!

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle body lotion


This smells AMAZING! Plus it has a little shimmer so, as well as the normal nourishing that body lotions do, this makes me shimmery and smell amazing too! 10/10 from me!

Elegant Touch Nails*


So I recently became an elegant touch insider which is just so amazing and I am really enjoying being on the programme! They’ve sent me 4 different sets of nails this month and above are my favourite 2! I love these nails because they’re a fraction of the price of acrylics, you can change them up more often and they don’t ruin your nails nowhere near as much as actual acrylics!
Micheal Kors Watch



I got this watch from my boyfriend for Christmas and, let’s be honest I’m not a massive watch fan, but I love this. With a rose gold and crystal theme this watch simply couldn’t be more perfect, and I’m so happy I received it!

Marc Jacobs- Honey

I recently rediscovered my love for this perfume after receiving it for Christmas! Marc Jacobs’ perfumes always come in the cutest packaging, but the smell of this one just screams spring to me!

Benefit They’re Real! Double the Lip


A fairly new product from benefit, but one I have been really enjoying lately! This is basically a lipstick and lip liner in one and it’s perfect for when you want a quick lip look, or if you’re rubbish at applying lip liner like me! 

Models Own Polishes- Chrome and Glitter!


I’ve been loving these polishes for so long now, every time I go to paint my nails i’m enticed by the chromes! And they look oh so gorgeous with the glitter layered over! 

NYX Lingerie (shade embellishment) 


This lip product was all over my Insta feed not too long ago and I was dying to try it but every time I went to buy it it had sold out. I eventually got my hands on it and I can definitely say it was worth the wait! Plus this shade is super gorgeous 😍. 

Light-up mirror/jewellery box from Debenhams


I received this for Christmas and I just absolutely adore it! It’s just so pretty and handy and there’s lots of room to store my makeup too. So in love with this product! 
And that’s all for now! I mean, I realise I’m saying that’s all but this is like my longest favourites post ever, oops. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading!

Love,

Bloggers made me buy it!

Hello there!

So this is a post I’ve seen circulating a lot recently and it is basically a post dedicated to products I was influenced to buy by bloggers and my opinions of them. I have quite a few to get through, so I’m not gonna ramble here too much, let’s just get straight into it. 

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit

I tried so hard so many times to get this lip kit because I saw so many posts about how good they were etc. However, to be completely 100% honest, I am massively underwhelmed. I got the shade Kourt K which I love, but it’s hard to apply, it’s sticky and I find it actually crumbles off of my lips and just leaves them looking stained. I’m not sure if I got a bad batch, but my lip kit isn’t great and isn’t worth the money or effort that it took. 

Becca X Jacylin Hill Champagne Pop


I read about this and product SO MANY TIMES on beauty blogs and I just had to try it. THIS IS THE BEST HIGHLIGHTER I HAVE EVER USED. IT GIVES ME THE MOST AMAZING NATURAL GLOW. This is my fav product ever right now, I thoroughly recommend it! 
Makeup Revolution Flawless Palette


I bought this palette simply because of the reviews I’d read on it and it didn’t let me down. For the price, this product is great! The shades are beautiful, the pigment is good, it’s very blendable and buildable and there’s a great choice of colours! 10/10 from me!

Benefit Gimme Brow


This product haunted my Instagram for a fair few weeks when it first came out. I was so excited to try it because I’d read nothing but good reviews, but to be honest it’s pretty rubbish. The colour, supposedly for brunettes, is pretty grey on my eyebrows. It also only really works where you’ve got hairs, so my eyebrows looked awfully full in some places and awfully gappy in others. After wearing this for a few hours, it sort of started to crack on my eyebrows and almost peel off. By the end of the day, it looked dreadful. I’m sorry benefit, I’m usually a fan, but this product did not impress me whatsoever and I won’t be wearing it again! 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams


I’d never even heard of the brand NYX before I started blogging so this buy was definitely influenced by bloggers. I love this product, it’s so inexpensive compared to the Kylie Lip Kits and I prefer everything about it, even if I do have to top it up a few times during the night, the formula makes it so easy to apply and doesn’t dry out the lips!

Laura Geller Palette


I see so much hype about the brand Laura Geller that I just had to try their products. I chose the ‘best of’ palette to sample a little bit of everything and I couldn’t be happier with it. The bronze and blush shades are beautiful, although the highlighter is a little too subtle for me. What makes this palette is the eye shadows though, I adore them so much so it’s a 9/10 from me!

Morphe Palette


If you haven’t seen the blogger/YouTuber hype over morphe palettes you must be living under a rock! They are all my instagram feed saw for a while and I can definitely see why! The pigment of these shadows is AMAZING, like INCREDIBLE. It’s definitely becoming my favourite palette and I cannot wait to order another one! 

And that’s all from me today! I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you soon!

Would You Rather Beauty Tag!

Ok, so I am not specifically a beauty blogger,  but I am a self-confessed make-up addict. So I’ve decided to do the would you rather beauty tag! Here we go..

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up? oooh messy hair and nice make up- I’m rubbish at hair styling anyway!

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out? Eyebrows.. If they fell out I would get them tattooed and that could be cool!

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Benefit for the rest of your life? Ok, so I don’t actually own anything MAC because I just don’t seem to be excited by it, and I use benefit daily, so definitely benefit!

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80’s perm? Oooh a perm could be fun!

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush? Blush.. rather look warm then look like an oompa loompa!

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public? MC Hammer pants…. can’t touch this.

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered? Bad orange spraytan, like the one I had for prom, lol.

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair colour? Hair cut.. I could always hide the bad trim with a cool hairstyle (not done by me).

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever? I think I’d have to sacrifice my twitter… I love youtube too much!

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara? make up brushes! Sponges can be cool too 😉

 

As always, thanks for reading!

Love,
