Get Ready With Me: Radiant Orchid Inspired!!


Happy Easter everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely day eating far too much chocolate!!  This week I decided to be a little bit braver with my videos and film my getting ready process.  I went through my makeup routine and what I wore, I even did a little bit of a voice-over which was lots of fun to do!  If you enjoy this type of video please do let me know, next week I'm gonna film a video giving tips and tricks for combating dry skin. 

If there's any things you want me to film, or think I should film, let me know and I'll give it a go.

My Week In Photos #18


Wahh I'm doing so rubbish at posting regular weekly updates.  All I can say is, SORRY.  I've got exams in May so I'm really focused on revising for them and completing my last piece of coursework.  I promise that over Summer I'll be better!

Love this oil burner, Cocktail-inspired body care, Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish

So one thing I've been obsessed with recently is burning wax tarts!  As much as I love candles, I way prefer wax tarts, purely because you can change the scent way quicker than with candles.  I also love this oil burner I got, it looks so lovely on my desk.

I discovered this seriously amazing brand last week and I've since used up all the bubble bath (which I need to re-purchase).  The scents are so true to the cocktails they're named after and, as I no longer drink alcohol, it's nice to experience my favourite drinks in a different way!

So Revlon released their new Parfumerie nail polish collection a couple of weeks ago and I just had to get my mitts on them!  I picked up 3 (review of all three will be up this coming week!) and I have to say, they're a bit hit and miss.  

Love this purple lip!, Atlas being super cute, Ru Paul Drag Race!!

I've fallen head over heels for this matte purple lip, I just can't get enough of it!  I''m looking to expand my purple lipstick collection, starting with MAC Up The Amp!

Since I've been home these past couple of weeks, I've really enjoyed spending time with my little baby Atlas.  He's the funniest little thing I know, a couple of days ago there was a high pitched tone playing on the TV and he thought it was coming from my leg so he kept putting his ear to it and looked really confused!  He also deicded it was a good idea to jump into the back of a guy's car who was taking his dog home from he park.....I was so embarrassed.

Lastly, my obsession with Ru Paul's Drag Race has been re-ignited! I love this programme so much, it's just too amazing.  Netflix has really changed my life, and not really in a good way....I watch soo much TV now...

Couture Not War







Top-Primark
Trousers-Primark
Jacket-Topshop
Bag-Primark
Shoes-Dune

I've been trying to incorporate more bright pops of colour into my wardrobe and I love how this look came together.  The bright turquoise and coral are surprisingly complimentary and work really well with these slouchy trousers and sheer top.

Boozi Bodycare-Helping Teetotalers Get Their Cocktail Fix!


I haven't had a drop of alcohol since late February, and if there's just one thing I miss about alcohol, it's cocktails.  Therefore I was thrilled to discover this little range of bath and body products inspired by some of the most popular cocktails.  I opted for the hand cream and shower gel in two of my favourite cocktail flavours-Woo Woo and Pina Colada.  


Their Woo Woo shower gel* is a sweet and fruity combination of cranberries and peaches.  I've used this a couple of times now and it's so lovely.  The fragrance is actually a lot subtler than I thought, but I'm pleased it is, otherwise it would just be too sickly sweet!


The Pina Colada hand cream* is just amazing.  I love the mix of coconut and pineapple and when I put it on, I can't stop smelling my hands!  The cream itself is lovely and moisturising and sinks in really quickly.  The sturdy packaging also makes it perfect for just chucking in your bag.
