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.

June's 'Love Me Beauty' Review


Another month, another beauty subscription has landed on my doormat.  I recently reviewed May's Love Me Beauty order (read the post here) and a little later than anticipated, today I'll be telling you what I received in June's delivery. If you haven't read my last post or aren't familiar with Love Me Beauty*, all you need to know if that the brand works on a credit system (£10 a month gives you 60 credits which can be redeemed against all products and topped up at any time) and stock is constantly updated and includes a mix of well established and very new brands. Plus sign up for 3 or 6 months and get your box even cheaper. Keep reading as I'll also be giving you a unique discount code which gets you 20% off your first order (new customers only.)

Elegant Touch | 3 Minute Express Nails & Holiday Collection Review


If you're anything like me, you won't feel completely 'finished' without your nails being done. Even if my hair is freshly coloured, cut & styled, I've spent ages on my makeup and I'm wearing a new outfit- if my talons are chipped (or worse, bare) I just don't feel nice. Now I'm fully aware that there are much worse things in life, however for most of us girls, having our nails done make us feel professional, womanly and is little treat we look forward to once a fortnight.
