Review: Timeless Truth Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask

You know I'm committed to my blog if I'm willing to post a big scary picture of myself with a cloth face mask on! But this one is totally worth it, as this little baby provides the perfect pampering treat for my skin with tons of amazing benefits.

My Top 5 Sun Safety Products

It's so important to protect ourselves from the sun, but sometimes it's difficult to choose the products that will work for us, leaving us with greasy skin, white streaks or a flaky film all over! Over the years, I've put tons of sun lotions and sun safety products to the test, so I wanted to share with you the ones that have come out on top...

My Little French Riviera Box June 2015

A little bit of the French Riviera from my home? Yes please! This month's box is not only astoundingly pretty, it also includes some fab little products - My Little Box have done it yet again!

Beauty Lust List #11: Colour Pop Dining Room Edition!

My last interior design post went down well with you lovely lot (see my White Bedroom Decor Wishlist) so I thought I'd move away from the white theme and show you how I want to create a colour-pop dining room!
My vision is to have fairly plain, pale furniture and a wooden floor, then incorporate some pops of colour using accessories, artwork, candles and soft furnishings!

My dining room has a set of patio doors so I'd love to dress them in these gorgeous cranberry coloured curtains from Yorkshire Linen to give the whole room a vibrant lift. They are the perfect balance of elegant and fun, setting off the colour pop perfectly without being too in-your-face! Even better, they're really inexpensive so I could even mix it up each season with a different set. I just discovered Yorkshire Linen, and they have tons of lovely home furnishings at a really good price, so it's easy to change up the style as and when needed.

Victoria & Abigail Illustrated Tapas Bowls / £19.95 Not On The High Street

I love a pretty illustration, and these quirky tapas bowls have some super cute artworks on the inside with a gorgeous bright exterior! Tapas is one of my favourite things to eat, and I am going for the feel of lots of bowls and plates of food dotted around the dining room table so my friends can sit, eat and have fun. 

Rachel Powell Woodstock Plate / £20 Not On The High Street

A bright yellow plate with a little birdie pattern - what's not to love?! Again, this fits in with my tapas idea and can be used to pile food on and create a more casual dinner feel. Yellow is one of my favourite colours so I wanted to incorporate at least one bright yellow accessory into my dining room!

Colour Pop Candle Holders / £49 I Love Retro

I use candles all the time and I love to use them to provide lighting for ambience at dinnertime too. My favourite things about these candle holders are their different sizes, which means they'd look great gathered together as a centerpiece, or a few dotted throughout the room with an odd assortment of candle shapes, sizes and colours. It's all about creating variation, interest and fun!

A dining room wouldn't be complete without a pretty set of cocktail glasses, and obviously I like the mix-and-match thing, making this set great for putting out on display when not in use. I'd perhaps keep them on a cocktail cabinet or tray with some ingredients ready for cocktail hour!

Fruit Bowl Cushion / £26 Oliver Bonas

I've had my eye on this fruity cushion for ages now, and I think it would tie in with the curtains nicely. Again, it's a really fun, vibrant cushion but I don't think it crosses the line of tacky. For summer, it'll be perfect strewn across a chair - perhaps the rest of my cushions will be plain oranges, pinks and greens to keep this one as the standout?

Review: Tampax Compak Pearl

I rarely see reviews on tampons on beauty blogs, and I do understand why as it's not as glamorous as showing off your new lipstick. But we all have periods and we all have to buy tampons or pads, so why not share a review with you on the only tampons I'll ever use?

Review: InstaNatural Scar Gel

Having a few scars here and there, I've tried a fair few treatments to fade them to no avail, so when the lovely people at InstaNatural sent me a bottle of their Scar Gel to test, I was more than happy to oblige...and I've been able to wave goodbye to some of the little pests already!

Playtex Contour Perfection Bra & Knicker Set

Who doesn't love a new set of lovely lingerie?! Playtex recently got in touch to collaborate on my Ultimate Bra Fitting Guide, and were kind enough to send me one of their Contour Perfection lingerie sets! It is a different type of "contouring" to what you'll normally find me talking about on my blog, but let me tell you - they're amazing!

Review: Wassen We Beautify Collagen - 10 Day Trial

At 22, I wouldn't say my skin is particularly in need of much wrinkle-filling, but since getting in touch with Wassen I became intrigued about the general benefits to your skin that collagen can have and decided to give it a 10 day trial.

May 2015 Favourites: Accessories Edition!

I wanted to share with you a few accessories I've been getting loads of use out of lately, so as well as my usual Monthly Favourites, I've decided to do an Accessories Favourites this month too!

Pink Parcel June 2015!

Following last month's Pink Parcel filled with fab products that I've got loads of use out of (review here), I didn't expect this month's box to live up to it, and although it is slightly "bittier" than last month, there are still some stand-out items.

May 2015 Favourites!

This month, I've rediscovered some old favourites, like the Rimmel foundation and Benefit set, and have found some new products that are sure to become staples in my beauty arsenal.

Weight Loss Wednesday: Weeks 1 & 2

It's been a difficult time over these past two weeks so I didn't manage to do as much exercise as I'd hoped, almost writing week one off altogether if I'm honest, but I still lost 4lbs in week two with the help of a few tips and tricks...

Glamour Summer Beauty Edit 2015

It's pretty much a given that as soon as Glamour release their new Beauty Edit Box each season in collab with Latest in Beauty, I'll be quick to snap one up - the latest Summer edit does not disappoint!

Review: MAC Matte Lipstick in No Faux Pas

We all know I'm a fan of a bright lip, and nothing beats a new MAC purchase. Since welcoming this little matte number - No Faux Pas - into my collection I just haven't been able to stop wearing it - I think I'd best stock up since it's limited edition!
