August's Love Me Beauty Order...

I have to admit that my life has been pretty mundane recently, and not at all Instagram worthy. Having bought a flat a couple of months ago which needed to be completely re decorated and furnished, I have been spending most of my spare time outside of work either painting, pinning like crazy on Pinterest, or trying to squeeze in the occasional blog post. Yep, gone are the holidays, crazy nights out and brunchin,’ and instead I’ve been spending every last penny on my new little home. Priorities, eh? Saying that, I’m a firm believer that you’ve got to treat yourself now and then, and the arrival of my Love Me Beauty* order definitely cheered me up and added a little excitement to my otherwise very boring month.

Beauty | Current Favourites...

It’s been quite a while since I’ve published a favourites post, mainly because I've been struggling with the whole work/ blog/ social life balance, but also because I've been curbing my spending and holding back when it comes to splurging on beauty products. Over the past month or so, however, I have had a little spend up, as well as receiving some lovely blogger deliveries, and today's post is a round up of some of my current favourites...

Makeup | 3INA Bestsellers Review & Swatches

Finding a new makeup brand that is affordable, offers a great range of products, is cruelty free and is actually worth having in your makeup bag can seem like a bit of a tall order at times. I often find that brands either tick all of the boxes apart from affordably (all of my high end loves, I’m looking at you), or if they are affordable and cruelty free, I often only like a certain brands mascara, for example, and hate everything else in the range.

Sneak Peek | The Spectrum X Mean Girls Collection...

 Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the party for Spectrum Collection’s latest launch, Spectrum x Mean girls, which will be available to buy  at the end of August. Yep, the unicorn friendly brand has teamed up with paramount pictures to create a range of brushes and brush bags inspired by the film. In true Mean girls style, the venue- Icetank in London- was decorated with all things pink, and even Regina George would have approved of the gorgeous sweet treats, foaming cocktails, photo booth, a burn book inspired graffiti wall and of course the main event- the beautiful brushes.

Beauty | Grounded Coffee Scrub, Lip Balm, Lip Scrub and Facial Toner Review

One of the things I love most about blogging is stepping out of my comfort zone and trying out new products rather than just sticking to my favourites all the time. Although I do this to primarily create great content and keep my posts varied and interesting, it does mean that along the way that I discover new favourites (as well as the very occasional horror) and sometimes fall in love with brands not only for their products, but also their stories.

July's 'Love Me Beauty' Review

Since May I've been receiving little monthly treats through the letterbox, in the form of my Love Me Beauty* order. Dubbed 'the beauty subscription service with a difference', unlike others around, it allows you to choose which products you want to receive each month, rather than them being picked for you. Although this takes out the element of surprise, it does mean you’re guaranteed to receive only products that you want to try. A £10 monthly subscription gives you 60 credits which are redeemable against all products in their online boutique, and you can add on extra tokens as and when you like if your choices exceed 60 credits.

Battle of the Blenders- The Beauty Blender Vs The Silicone Sponge

The Beauty Blender has been one of the most (if not THE most) popular cosmetic sponges on the market for the past few years, and although there are so many dupes out there, none have managed to steal its crown. Sure, at £16 a go they are pricey, and before I had tried one I didn’t think I could justify that amount of money on a sponge (especially as it’s recommended you replace it every 3 months), but since the first use I’ve been hooked, and haven’t looked back. Yep, these tiny sponges have transformed the way I apply my makeup, and have given me the most flawless finish I've ever had.
