Boxing Day Sales

My Boxing Day Sales Picks 2016

Dinner has been devoured, bellies are full and the Christmas specials are on the TV. The biggest part of Christmas 2016 is done and dusted, but now it’s time for one of my most favourite bits – the sales!

If you are a teen or young adult you may prefer to have smaller presents to open and then have money to spend in the sales, or just want to shop them anyway. I’ve done some research and picked out some of the best deals for this year.

FASHION

October Favourites 2016

monthly-faves-oct

I’ve been on a slippery slope with monthly favourites as of late. I didn’t know what I actually favoured for some months and last month was my birthday so I didn’t want to do a post then because it’d be pretty bias, not to mention my birthday is the tail end of the month, so it wouldn’t have felt fair to me. Not that anyone is going to get offended. Anyway, this month has definitely made up for it all, with a whopping ten favourites to discuss and share reviews with you.

LUSH Shimmy Shimmy Bar

shimmy-shimmy
After Lily taught me a genius little hack with this shimmer bar, I just had to get it. I’m not normally the type to use shimmer bars, but when she told me that these act perfectly as highlighters, I was instantly sold. It works really well, just as Lily said. It was perfect for when I went to a concert at the beginning of the month and since glittery/shimmery highlighters are all the rage, I felt like it was a right steal to get such a glowing look without needing to use a high quality highlighter which would cost a fair bit.

Available from LUSH for £5.50

LUSH Monsters’ Ball bath bomb

monsters-ball

I was given this as a birthday present and after seeing so many amazing Instagram posts of the bomb in action, I was elated to have this. Using it was so fun because of the beautiful colours that fizz from the product were so beautiful and morphed into a gorgeous midnight blue bath water. This is a seasonal product at LUSH meaning it’s only on sale for a specific period of time, so it’s sad to think that I won’t see this product until next year (possibly, if it doesn’t get discontinued) but it’s also lovely to have limited edition products to look forward to.

This product is no longer on sale 

LUSH Lipstick in Decisive

decisive

Another birthday present was this beautiful lipstick. I’m usually one to wear a red lip on special occasions and for eveningwear. It was fairly long lasting and felt light on my lips, with hardly any smudging. I had a fair few compliments, too, which is always nice.

Available from LUSH for £14.50

Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation

all-nighter

I bought this back in Brighton when on a mini spending spree and having heard so many people raving about the foundation that I was intrigued to try it. It’s a full coverage and doesn’t need much product applied to get the perfect and flawless complexion. This was my first high end foundation and I definitely think it was worth every penny, with the product being a luxury and living up to the description of long lasting.

Available from Debenhams for £27

Fifth Harmony’s 727 Tour

Fifth Harmony

As previously mentioned, I went to see Fifth Harmony perform their ‘727’ tour in Cardiff as my friend, Camryn, was the support act. I highly enjoyed the show and although not my most favourite artists, the girls performance definitely changed my opinion on them and I gained a newfound respect for them as an act. Despite them being the headline act, it was Camryn who made the show for me, but perhaps that may come from a bias point of view having been her friend and a fan for so long. The whole show was amazing to watch and I’ve found myself listening to more of Fifth Harmony’s music since leaving the arena.

Olly Murs – Grow Up

This is Olly’s second single to come from his upcoming album, ’24 Hours’ and I really fell in love with this one. It’s relatable for me on a personal level, but I’m fairly confident that everyone has a story that can track back to this song. The music video was brilliant and cleverly made, also highly enjoyable to watch Olly working with young children. It’s a song I’ve been playing a lot and is on my current playlist.

Niall Horan – This Town

The release of Niall’s debut single was pretty unexpected. We all knew he’d been in the studio, but wasn’t really talkative about his own solo career. The song is so beautiful and I always have a soft spot for acoustics. I felt as though the love song was so heart warming and definitely fitted Niall’s style. Another song I’ve listened to a fair bit over the past month.

Little Mix -Shoutout To My Ex

Little Mix are back with the new era of their upcoming album, ‘Glory Days’ and the first single, ‘Shoutout To My Ex’ is nothing short of perfection. It’s the ideal girl power anthem post-break up and is what the girls describe as a ‘happy break-up song’. The premiere was a live performance on ‘The X Factor’ and showed off the strong and powerful vocals of Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade. The music video is also a fantastic piece of cinematography and highly aesthetically pleasing. It’s no surprise I’ve had it on repeat for the second half of the month following its release.

Our World by Little Mix

our-world
Little Mix’s autobiography released this month which I preordered months in advance. I felt as though the book was very real and hard hitting about the reality of four young girls living typical working class lives across the UK to becoming the first (and currently only) group to win The X Factor and become the biggest girlband of our generation,but at the same time they are fairly humble by sharing both the pros and cons of their careers. I felt as though they talked to their audience on the same level, rather than looking down as they are far superior. I had a lot to say about the book and wrote a review for United by Pop, if you’re interested.

Available from Waterstones for £13.99

The Little Book of Feminism by Harriet Dyer

little-book-of-feminism

I call myself a feminist, since I am for and believe in everything feminism stands for, but I wasn’t fully educated on the background of feminism and how it began, what the origins were. This little book, only 96 pages long, is the ideal book for those wanting to learn about feminism or are intrigued by it, but don’t know where to start. Since fourth wave feminism is currently blowing up in the media, in particular social media and pop culture, this would be the perfect stocking filler for someone such as perhaps a teenager who wants to gain a better understanding of the movement. The book is more full of facts as to what has happened, what is happening,etc. rather than opinion based. It doesn’t go into too much detail, but is great for putting you on track as to understand the basics of feminism.

Available from Waterstones for £5.99

May Monthly Favourites 2016

may

 

We’re already halfway through the year and I have no idea how. But anyway, here are this month’s favourites!

LUSH’s Rub Rub Rub shower scrub

Rub Rub Rub

I’ve been hearing about this product a lot and I honestly have no idea why I was reluctant to buying it until recently. Thanks to my friend who actually works at LUSH, she totally sang the praises of this product and told me about how people use it as an alternative to shampoo and conditioner. I was sold and gave it a go and oh my goodness, it’s amazing. If you have oily hair then this is amazing. My hair feels so clean and well looked after. I use a slight bit of conditioner on the ends but the rest is just this. It’s also amazing for your body, too. Rub Rub Rub is full of mineral-rich sea salt and organic lemon juice which cleanses the pores and exfoliates your skin. I have been obsessed with this product all month and I’m desperate to get some more. Next time I’ll get the bigger tub for sure.

Get it here for £8.95

LUSH’s Pumice Power

Pumice Power

Another LUSH product I’ve been loving is LUSH’s Pumice Power. I have pretty rough skin on the bottom of my feet and again, my friend from LUSH had my back and introduced me to this little beauty. You just use it in the bath or with a bowl of water and rub it like a pumice stone and it just does wonders for your feet. It may take more than one use to get rid of all the rough skin, but it’s definitely worth it.

Get it here for £3.25

Colourpop – Bianca

Colourpop

I saw Zoella wearing this colour and I couldn’t help but be intrigued with what she was wearing. Thankfully, Zoë was a babe and left a link in the YouTube video of the colour. I ordered it and it was such a beautiful colour which I feel could be used with many different looks.This is a matte liquid lipstick but doesn’t feel too drying. The product seemed to last a long time on my lips, especially when I was out all day in Cardiff and wore it. Of course, when eating it didn’t stay whole so I did apply again to keep it fresh but the overall colour actually stayed and I was pretty impressed.

Get it here for $6.00

 

Reggie N Bollie – New Girl


The X Factor runners-up, Reggie N Bollie, have released their debut single and while I wasn’t their biggest fan during their time on the show, I definitely love this song. It screams summer and has Caribbean vibes. Plus there’s a lot of steel drums which I’m a sucker for in a summer song. I’ve been playing this song a lot since the release and it’s possibly en route for being my song of the summer.

Emma Blackery – Sucks to be You EP

[spotify id=”spotify%3Aalbum%3A70soynm09OMpbh7KIHBDq3″ width=”300″ height=”380″ /]

British YouTuber/singer-songwriter, Emma Blackery, released her comeback EP in May and it is honestly such a jam. The pop-punk sound reminds me of the early to mid 00’s and is definitely the kind of music I’m into. There’s not much else to say but it’s just perfect for any pop-rock/pop-punk lovers.

My Top 5 LUSH Products

Screen Shot 2016-05-06 at 23.08.11

LUSH is one of my favourite beauty brands and I mention their products a fair bit on this blog. I have a lot of products I’m love with but I’ve actually narrowed it down to five that I love the most which I’m recommending in this post.

 

5. Milky Bath bubble bar

milky bath

This bubble bar is definitely my favourite from LUSH. It contains orange oil and actual skimmed milk so while there’s no expiry date, I definitely recommend using this sooner rather than later. This bar creates a LOT of bubbles which, let’s be honest, are a major plus when it comes to bath time. I definitely recommend!

Get it here for £3.75

4. Charity Pot hand and body lotion

Charity Pot

This lotion is so soft on the skin and has a light and floral scent to it. Ingredients include Fair Trade shea butter, Rosewood Oil and Ylang Ylang oil. The best bit? 100% of the proceeds (minus VAT) go to various good causes  and the lid of your product tells you which charity you have supported. Feel good in more than one way!

Get it for £3.50

3. Love Lettuce fresh face mask

Love Lettuce

This mask does wonders for my pores. It tightens them and helps balance out the oil in my t-zone. It smells amazing and includes seaweed gel, almond oil and honey. My face looks so much cleaner and brighter and feels super soft!

Get it for £6.75

2. Cup O’Coffee exfoliating mask

Cup O Coffee

It’s funny because I don’t really like the taste of coffee but I absolutely love the smell. This exfoliating mask is an absolute Godsend. I have rough patches on my elbows and just after 10 minutes of putting this on them and washing it off, they were baby smooth. No surprise this includes coffee infusion! It works well as both a face and body mask and makes your skin feel so soft.

Get it for £6.75

1. Intergalactic bath bomb

Intergalactic

My number one LUSH product is the Intergalactic bath bomb. It was in my April monthly favourites and as you can see from there, it’s like looking at the galaxy in your bath! It’s also super refreshing with ingredients such as grapefruit oil and peppermint oil. I love a good bath bomb, especially when it’s like watching a show of explosions full of colour when you put it in the water!

Get it for £3.95

February Monthly Favourites 2016

Feb faves

It’s pretty insane as to how quick February went. I know there’s a few days less compared to January, but let’s be honest, that’s not much of a big deal. In comparison to last month’s favourites, I have favourites are more interesting and probably appealing to more of you as I was no longer poorly and able to just be more humane.

 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp 

 

Nyx Antrwerp

I’ve never really been one for bold lips, but I decided to move slightly out of my comfort zone and try it. I heard a lot of people raving about the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream so I felt compelled to trying one. The colour is a lot brighter than the packaging but was pretty moisturised, though that didn’t have any affect on the matte look. It’s a perfect size for your bag to go out and about and I just think it’s great for a bold look.

Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 01.19.56
Get it from Boots for £5.50

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (Vanilla) 

Bourjois

After being recommended this foundation by a friend, I thought I would give it a go. I applies so well and doesn’t look caked in the slightest. I wear Vanilla (52) and it matches my skintone perfectly. It’s the foundation I have been wearing all month and have been getting lots of compliments on. I would describe it as a medium coverage which is easily buildable if you were going for a high coverage.  Plus, when I take it off, my skin feels so good. As a bonus, you can really smell the fruits used in there including apricot and melon, so that’s good if you like nicely scented products.

Get it here for £9.99

 

TIGI Oatmeal & Honey Shampoo and Conditioner Duo

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 04.08.14

This actually isn’t mine, but my mother picked this up at the hairdressers and offered for me to use it. It is honestly one of if not the best shampoo and conditioner duos I have ever used. It feels so cleansing and soothes my hair leaving it feeling so soft and repaired. Running my hands through it in the shower, my hair literally feels so silky and while that feeling tends to go after your hair dries, this isn’t the case with the Oatmeal & Honey nourishing duo. I definitely love these products and think they are worth every penny.

Get it for £15.50

 

MTV’s Catfish Season 4

Catfish

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I really enjoy Catfish. Nev and Max were back last year delivering us the fourth season of the reality show in where the detective duo help hopefuls in finding out if the person they are lusting over online are really who they say they are. With such a disrupted 2015, I was unable to keep up with the show on a weekly basis, so with season 5 just days away from the premiere, I decided to spend this month catching up with the most recently aired season. I always seem to be hooked on the show and highly intrigued in how people manage to keep up a false life look so realistic online and their motives behind it. This season definitely saw some major plot twists that I won’t reveal, but if you’re all about social media and real life drama, then this show is for you.

PAN (2015) Starring Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund

PAN

It goes without saying that Peter Pan is my utmost favourite fairytale in existence and I have seen many adaptions of the story via film. My favourite will forever be the Disney cartoon classic that I grew up with, but this movie had a twist to the story we all know and love. ‘Every legend has a beginning’ and this film focuses on how Peter (Levi Miller) first found his way to Neverland and the unsuspecting friendship between himself and James Hook (Garrett Hedlund). It also has answers to questions as to how Peter is able to fly, what species he is and how he met characters he seems so friendly in the story we have heard before.  This family film is packed with adventure and magic which you’ll enjoy regardless of age.

The Amazing Race 

Internet Stars

This is an American reality TV show where 11 teams of two race around the world, completing both physical and mental challenges, hunting for clues and navigate around the countries that are visited. This is the first time I have seen it as this current season features internet stars including my favourite, Tyler Oakley. The show is so interesting and I’m highly enjoying watching the show so far. I’m not sure as to when the show ends but thanks to an app called Hola, I can watch American TV shows on different websites including CBS, where The Amazing Race is aired.

All Time Low

ATL

This isn’t the first time that I have listened to All Time Low and I have enjoyed some of their music in the past, but after my friend, Lauren, has been talking about them so much lately, she has urged me to add them to my playlist, in which I have and I definitely appreciate their music a lot more. My go-to songs to listen to include ‘Therapy’, ‘Missing You’, ‘Dear Maria (Count Me In)’ and of course, being a Peter Pan lover, ‘Somewhere in Neverland’. I definitely feel like listening to them this time around that their music has grown on me a lot more.

Get Adele's make up look from The BRITs at an affordable price!

Adele blog

 

If you’re big on pop culture and music, you may well have watched The BRITs on Wednesday night. If you did, you saw Adele dominate the entire ceremony by winning four awards plus giving a stunning performance to close the show. She sounded fantastic and looked fabulous. You’d expect that her make up artist used high end products to create a flawless face which was picture perfect for a star studded event, right?

Adele

Well, here’s the plot twist – the products used on Adele are totally affordable for you and I. Here’s a rundown of the products that Michael Ashton used on the ‘Hello’ hit-maker.

 

Adele Make up 1

 

Adele Make up 2

Screen Shot 2016-02-27 at 06.10.50

Adele Make up 3

Eyeshadow: Tom Ford Eye Colour Quad (Nude Dip) – £64

As for the lip product, Ashton kept the secret under lock and key, but any red lip product would look amazing in a recreation of Adele’s award-winning look.

While the eyeshadow and moisture balm are on the pricy side, it’s definitely affordable to achieve Adele’s glowing skin and with a bit of experimenting, you could get a very similar look on the eyeshadow with a Naked palette or dupe.

What do you think of Adele’s MOTD for The BRITs? Fancy indulging into the products she used knowing the results it gave her?

Review: Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara

mascara

 

Everyone has been raving about the new Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara, so when I was out shopping recently, I decided to pick one up and give it a try.

Warning!! Apply responsibly!! Introducing Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara. Will you dare to get the Push Up Effect? Our 1st Push-Up brush with Cup-Shaped bristles boosts and thickens lashes. The formula Instantly plumps & volumises the look of lashes, with Styling Wax to keep them lifted. Intense black colour for a dramatic, sultry look. Result: A luscious pair of plumped up, full, thick lashes that last all day and night!

Maybelline

This is what my lashes looked like after one coat. They definitely have the push up effect. After applying a second coat, however, I wasn’t too impressed as my lashes seemed to clump together and look really weird. My overall thoughts are that it’s a great mascara for one coat. Avoid putting more than one because I found that there was a lot of clumping going on, but with the one coat as shown above, there was definitely some push up vibes going on. My lashes don’t look like how the product’s adverts showcase, but I’m not sure if that’s ever the case, unless you’re Gigi Hadid who’s in the ads. Pick up the mascara from Boots for £5.99 Have you tried this mascara? What are your thoughts?

January Favourites 2016

Blog template

 

You know how I said that 2016 was going to be a fresh start for me? So far, that’s not happened. Since New Year’s Day, I’ve been ill with this… I don’t even know what because I’m not sure if it’s the flu but it’s not a simple cold. It’s the end of the month and I’m still not feeling 100% but hopefully after visiting the doctor again, I’ll be given something to blast this bug out of me.

Anyway, that’s my reasoning for lack of blog posts and why my monthly favourites aren’t too extravagant. Please forgive me but enjoy reading about things I did favour this January.

Skullcandy Jib Earphones

Skullcandy

I’m terrible for earphones – I manage to lose them or break them all the time, but when I decided to pick up my latest pair, I made a promise with myself that I’d look after them. I purchased the Skullcandy earphones from ASDA for £10.00 and they are absolutely amazing for the amount I paid. I have friends who are often willing to pay around £30.00 for earphones to ensure great quality, but these earphones have a great sound to them and since I can sometimes be hard of hearing, I can hear my music in a lot more detail and feel the bass more than just listening by ear. Skullcandy are said to be a great make and were originally recommended to me by my friend who was highly satisfied with her purchase. I have to agree with her as I think they’re great and worth every penny for music lovers! They have also been a great use for Skype calls when I’ve had meetings with Maximum Pop as I can hear people quite clearly (when Skype actually works…)

Available from ASDA for £10.00

LUSH’s Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask

Love lettuce

On one of the days where my painkillers had kicked in, I decided to give myself some TLC with the face mask I had picked up from a mini LUSH haul I had with Courtney in the sales. I’ve used the Love Lettuce face mask before, but totally forgot how much I loved the product. I have an oily face which I find pretty stressful to clear up without breaking out, but this face mask helped dry up my skin a bit for around 3-4 days which I was very satisfied with (bare in mind I had been mainly bed bound for most of this month so my skincare routine was out the window excluding this face mask I decided to do) and I have plenty to do a number of face masks within the 3 week expiry date (tip: I’ve been told by a LUSH worker these can actually be used up to a week after the expiry date, so if you’re like me and still have some left over, don’t waste it!)

Available from LUSH for £6.75 

The Big Bang Theory Season 9 

The Big Bang Theory

I’ve previously mentioned TBBT in a favourites blog, but season 9 is currently playing and I have managed to catch up during my days in bed and so far I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s been my go-to binge show this month and without any spoilers, I’ve really enjoyed seeing the characters develop more. I think Sheldon and Amy have definitely made huge developments both individually and as a couple (and yes I am a Shamy shipper. #Shamy4ever!) and think Penny has definitely matured a lot. I’m looking forward to finishing the rest of the season and as I’m writing this, I’m patiently waiting for a new episode to be released in the UK.

Tanya Burr Sugar Plum Nail Polish

Tanya Burr Sugar Plum

This polish was part of a Christmas set which has sadly been discontinued. I absolutely love the shade and find it perfect for the winter season of dark shades. I stupidly didn’t take a photo of my nails before they chipped but they managed not to start flaking until around 7 days after which is very rare for me as I type a lot and usually that means my polish flakes off, especially on my thumbs as for some weird reason I hit the space bar using the side which means half of my nail hits the keyboard and causes serious chipping. However, this lasted pretty well and hopefully the shade will be included in the 2016 Christmas collection or brought back as a permanent edition to the Tanya Burr Cosmetics nail polish line. Fingers crossed!

Tums Smoothies

Tums

I suffer with acid reflux a lot. I take medication for it but some days even the meds don’t work. My mother had recently picked up a packet of Tums Smoothies which the entire family is sharing and they worked so well. I wasn’t expecting much for over-the-counter products when I get acid reflux quite bad, but they worked really well. I had the Assorted Fruits but next time I’ll probably pick up the Berry Fusion as I’m more of a berry flavoured kind of gal. I think these are perfect to pop in your bag for on the go because they seemed to work pretty quickly, which was a great relief.

Available from Boots for £3.69

PILLOWTALK – Zayn Malik

Okay, I wasn’t going to include this until next month’s favourites as it’s only just come out, but I’ve had it on repeat ever since it released on Friday, so clearly I love it enough for it to make this month’s favourites! Zayn’s debut single since leaving One Direction has finally dropped and though I never thought I would be into the kind of music he likes (I mean he was pals with Naughty Boy for a while and I didn’t take a shining to his music so…) but I was oh so wrong. It’s a great song and it’s about loving sex but he doesn’t objectify women which is kind of refreshing.

As I said, not a great deal of exciting things this month, but hopefully as I recover from this deadly bug I’ll be up and about more to use various things and then rave about my love for them!

What did you enjoy this month?

LUSH Oxford Street Haul

lush haul

On my most recent visit to London, I headed to Oxford Street with great eagerness to check out the all new LUSH store. Unlike most stores by the beauty company, the Oxford Street store is rather big consisting of a whole three stores and a whole lot of exclusives.

Bewildered by everything they had in store, I narrowed it down to a couple of products to bring home. I still had a long day ahead of me as well as a rather warm bus journey home where many of the fresh products would have been spoiled. Here’s what I managed to get my hands on…

 Double Vitality bath oil 

 

12071393_10153657386995489_303749207_n

An Oxford Street exclusive – little beauty is a bath oil that smells like a mixture of peppermint and lemon. Made from two stars sandwiched together, the gorgeous buttery texture feels amazing on your hands. Though be warned- they can melt pretty easily in a warm temperature.

Candy Mountain bubble bar  

12081539_10153657384830489_12020877_n

This gorgeous bubble bar is part of the Christmas season range and rather well known by LUSH lovers as it’s brought out every year. The sugar-sweet candy-floss scented bar is definitely one for people with a sweet tooth and does just an amazing job as the appeal of the product’s first impression. I had to use it before writing this blog as the scent was driving me crazy and almost cried out for me to put it to use.

Golden Wonder bath bomb

 

12092775_10153657384890489_254660787_n

I was originally intrigued by the look of this bath bomb, but was given a slight surprise when I picked it up as I felt something move. There is hidden content inside this beautiful bath bomb waiting to explode when it hits the water.It smells of a tangy orange and lime which are definitely great for a bath to awaken your moods.

Magic Wand reusable bubble bar

 

 

 

12071603_10153657384905489_614687448_n

Having seen this product last year used by the likes of Zoella and Tanya Burr, I was determined to ensure I picked up this product in time for the festive season. Sharing the same scent as the Snow Fairy bubble bath, this wand resembling bubble bar is attached to a wooden stick and definitely gives off the magic of Christmas vibes. It’s perfect for any young girl or those attracted to the colours and sweet scents and can be used a handful of times, too.

A newly redesign in the old product that seems to only be currently available in the Oxford store. Containing relaxing scents of Jasmine, Lavander and Ginger, it’s no wonder this product is perfect to use before bedtime.

This cute little bubble bar is perfect for softening your skin and water in the bath.The ingredients such as skimmed milk and cocoa are perfect for making the water feeling creamy and the scent lingered on my hands for sometime after.

With the Oxford Street store being the rage of all LUSH fans, I had to get something to remember my trip. I’m a big fan of bags and this one is definitely great for a lot of shopping, especially for big  shopping hauls.

I had a great time overall at the store and hope to go back again very soon.
