Autumn Lipsticks.

I wanted to try something new this Autumn, I’ve always done my makeup then same and I just wanted to mix it up a little bit. So, I’ve bought some darker lipsticks and I’m loving them! I was so worried about them not suiting me and thought I would end up hating them but I think they look great! I thought I’d share with you my top favourites, (I’ve tried so many!) to see if you fancy giving them a go.

They are all from the Rimmel collection as I know that I am okay with their products. I have such sensitive skin so I don’t like to risk it with others. I mean, why should I when I have so many beautiful colours to choose from?!


My personal favourite is from the ‘Kate’ collection within Rimmel which is a lovely Maroon colour. It looks adoreabke on and matches with pretty much every outfit. This particular shade is number 107.


Next we have number ‘128’ from Rimmel London which is a gorgeous plum colour. This one actually has a name too: ‘Starry-eyed’. Although it’s harder to match with your chosen outfits I really do love this colour. It makes your lips stand out and it’s something a little bit different.


Finally, I’ve chosen a more lighter purple which is number ‘180’. This is one I had last year that I wore all the time so I’m happy to finally have it back and I look forward to wearing it again. I got so many compliments with this lipstick last year, it’s beaut! It is actually called ‘Vintage Pink‘ but it comes out more purpley!

What do you think? Will you be giving any of them a go? Have you tried any new dark or bright lipsticks this year, I’d love to find some more.

Take care,

Shopping Haul: The Body Shop.

Hi guys, how’s your week going? I’ve been off work today and I’ve had a lovely relaxing, chilled day, so I’m feeling great! A couple of months ago now I was invited to my first Body Shop Party at a friends house and I am now a Body Shop convert! I am absolutely loving everything and I can’t stop buying. So I thought I would share with you my personal favourites at the moment. And guess what I got the chance to mess around with my camera too 😁

6-2
My personal favourite out of them all is the ‘Satsuma Energising Lotion‘, it smells absolutely amazing! I really love how it makes my skin feel and smell. I have been complemented on it so many times too, everyone seems to love it. And it’s only £3.00!

7-2
The ‘Satsuma Shower Gel‘ complements the body lotion perfectly. It is very hard wearing and lasts the whole day. It is only a small container though and I wished it came in a bigger version! You can buy this for £4.00, which is a little pricey for the size, but I promise it is definitely worth it! I love the smell of the ‘Coconut Shower Cream‘ too. It also has a much smoother texture with it being a cream rather than a gel. It leaves your skin again feeling super soft and the distinct smell is certain to get people wondering what your wearing! This product is also £4.00.

3-3

I can honestly say that the ‘VITAMIN E Aqua Boost Essence Lotion‘ is the best face lotion I have ever used to wipe off remaining makeup. I have had a lot of problems in the past with allergic reactions to face lotions and I have had no problem whatsoever with this product. It also leaves your face feeling fresh and soft which most other face lotions don’t. You can buy this for £9.50 and it’s worth every penny!

I hadn’t heard of a BB cream before I purchased the ‘All-in-One Body Shop BB Cream‘ but apparently it has been around for a while and many other brands sell it. I think this product is like magic, ha!! It is like a foundation but then isn’t a foundation, it’s very hard to explain. You rub the cream into your face and it brings out your natural colours, so it’s different for everyone. You just have to try it to understand what I mean, but it is a great substitute for foundation when your in a rush and don’t have the time to mess about with contouring and normal foundation. This FANTASTIC product is £12.00, definitely give it a try.

2

The ‘Coconut Hand Cream‘ is just the perfect size for your hand bag. It smells like coconuts and really soothes your hands, what more could you want? This little treasure is only £4.00.

I’m thinking with Christmas coming up (we are only 3 months away, can you believe it?!) that all these products would make great gifts! I will definitely be getting The Body Shop products for my loved ones. Their Christmas Catalogue is out very soon and I really can’t wait to have a browse through. Check out their website http://www.thebodyshop.com, to view all these products, and keep an eye out for their festive products in their Christmas Catalogue, I’m sure they will be divine!

Take care,

A Much Needed Spa Day!

I haven’t been feeling 100% lately, I’ve felt really uptight and not really myself so what better way to release tension and feel super relaxed? That’s right! I went on a much needed SPA DAY! It was exactly what I needed and I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. I have felt so much better and a lot more relaxed ever since.

I went last Tuesday to Mercure St Pauls Hotel in the Sheffield City Centre. I hadn’t been to this particular spa before but it really is a lovely one; I will be going again! I felt unbelievably happy, relaxed and well looked after throughout the whole day and the fact I was in a very posh hotel for a very decent price made it even more amazing! I paid £39 for the day which included a 25 minute treatment, refreshments on arrival and full use of the spa facilities. How amazing is that?

On arrival at the hotel we were approached by two lovely receptionists that couldn’t do enough for us, they offered us a hot drink and then took us on a quick tour of the spa facilities.
The spa facilities were heavenly, very well maintained, extremely clean and very classy! In the main section of the spa there is a large pool which had plenty of seating placed around it, a rock sauna, a steam room, a Aroma therapy room (which is like a scented steam room), a ice igloo room and an experience shower which had three different unique settings available. They also have 8 spa treatment rooms with lots of different treatments on offer. I had the ‘time for me’ package but they do have lots of other packages available, take a look: http://www.spanaturelfitness.com/spa-treatments-and-experiences/experiences/

Being able to have a casual swim and make my way around all the different rooms at my own pace was just what I wanted. I have never felt so relaxed, all my worries disappeared and I kind of felt like I was in a big bubble; It was just perfect!
I had a back massage as my 25 minute treatment and I can honestly say it was the best massage I have ever had. I have always had problems with my back due to dancing for a young age and this particular massage made it feel the best it has felt in years. I will be having another one very soon!

I highly recommend you attend St Pauls, I can garantee a great, relaxing day that will leave you feeling refreshed. Check out their website ‘http://www.spanaturelfitness.com/spa/sheffield-st-Pauls’ and for even better offers to attend this particular hotel check out ‘Spabreaks.com’!

Bye for now,
