Okay so I have had a good few weeks to review March Glossy box and I must say I m pretty impressed with the products, lets first look at the box ....


What do you think? Looks fab doesn't it?

The answer is yes! I have really enjoyed using the products from this months box.

Lets start with the oOlution Eye cream


This is said to help reduce dark circles and bags with the help from its natural ingredients. I have been using this everyday, morning and night. Its actually been a long time since I last used a eye cream so often. I will admit that this cream has helped brighten my eye area a little bit but I naturally have dark circles and upper lids so they are still dark to me, but I have noticed a little bit of difference. The main change I feel this product has helped with is actually moisturising my eye are. My skin feels super smooth and my concealer seems to be gliding on much easier after I have applied this cream and a small amount really does go a long way so I still have plenty of this left and has been a good few weeks!! 

This one of my favourites from this box, we have This Works - In Transit Camera Close Up Primer


A mouthful right? However that doesn't bother me one bit as I have loved this product so much, so this is a primer and moisturiser in 1. This is perfect for quick get up and go look, why?
Well after a quick clean of my face I apply a good amount of this all over my face and neck and then pop a little bit of foundation and i have that natural dewy look. It means if I am in a rush in a morning which is normal for a lot of us. It makes those 2 moisturising and priming steps faster because its a multi action in just one product! Perfect!!

Firstly as a moisturiser this is fantastic, I love how this makes my skin feel each time, this product has their bio-boost which is a blend of their anti-oxidant plant oils which helps to rebuild and protect the skin barrier. I can honestly say this is helping my skin to look a lot more youthful, by brightening and tightening. My skin looks more radiant and much healthier. I am honestly shocked at how much I am enjoying this product.

That is just about the moisturising aspects, this also works as a primer and boy does this help keep my make up in place and last a lot longer than normal. My makeup glides onto my skin beautifully and recently I have had a few compliments on how my make up application has been looking and that is purely thanks to this little gem. It helps give my foundation more of a dewy glow which a lot of primers don't do very well. Oh and if you didn't already know Victoria Beckham uses this so how could you possibly say no to this when her skin looks so dreamy!!

I would just like to point out this is more of a luxury skincare product so if you don't mind a little bit of a splurge this is something you should try. I have linked the page above the picture in the title so you can head over and take a look but so you know now it is £30

OK, so lets move on, that was a long review on just that one product eh.. (sorry about that)

So this is the Crabtree and Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand cream

This is my 3rd tube of this Brands hand cream, I received one as a gift one Christmas and then 2 of these creams from Glossy box. Each time I have enjoyed using these as they are super moisturising and scented so beautifully. This particular scent is very floral hence then name (Somerset Meadows). These creams are infused with Shea butter and macadamia nut oil so as you can imagine they are very hydrating so if you have rough hands this is the cream for you to try.

The other great benefit to this cream is the size, this is perfect to carry around in your handbag but bright enough to see if its buried beneath all your bits and bobs, oh and also very reasonably priced!!

This is another favourite of mine from this box, it is the Schwarzkopf Blond Me Keratin Restore Bonding Shampoo


First let me just start off by saying this shampoo isn't just for blondes, as some of you may already no that I don't have blonde hair. OK so the packaging is gorgeous whats better than gold?? Beautiful!

This has been leaving my hair super smooth and smelling gorgeous I love it when you have dried your hair and you can still smell the scents from your shampoo's and conditioner's. This shampoo I can smell all day, the best way I can describe this is think of that smell after you've left the hair salon and you swoosh you hair about and all you can smell is the products they have used.... yeh its that sort of smell this shampoo leaves me with!!
This helps cleanse the hair and also create new bonds within the hairs fibres by strengthening any weakened areas of the hair, so its a real luxury restoring shampoo. You can also pick up the shampoo to match the shampoo so be sure to check those out.

The final product is this cute palette, it is the Sleek Eye And Cheek Palette.


This is such a pretty spring/summer palette, the light colours are so natural but with a hint of glow and highlight. I have been really enjoying using the two orange shades on my lids recently. There are also 2 beautiful blushers in the palette, one a very baby pink, and the other is a highlighter/blush but to be honest I have been using it as a highlighter as it isn't very pink toned. ( The shade in the top left corner).

This palette is a great kit for beginners make up as the shades are not highly pigmented so no need to worry about any obvious mistakes but they are beautiful colours for a subtle day look. This palette is available in a few other different so be sure to check the link above and check those out.

And that is March's Glossy box, I hope you all enjoyed the read..

I want to talk about my recent spot saviour as I have been suffering badly with deep under the skin spots that have been very painful, red and incredibly dry. I do get these sort of spots occasionally but this tends to be hormonal near to the dreaded monthly cycle :(

However I have been under a lot of stress recently, and had a bit of a low point so I think this had a lot to do with my skin being at its worst yet!!

These spots seemed to gather around my chin and the top of my forehead, although the chin was most definitely the worst area. So I know its normal for our skin to have bad moments and I fully get that, so I don't get myself in a tizz about it because they have to take their course but there are products out there that can help towards a faster recovery. Not just products help but diet, exercise etc.

So this post is about a face mask that I received a while back in one of my Glossy boxes, January 2016 to be exact. So when I first started using this I wasn't struggling with bad skin apart from a small amount of dry patches around my nose, but that was it.

I have said before that this product is great, its a thin watery consistency (more water based) so it feels super refreshing and soothing when applying to the face. I have been using this 2 times a week for the past few week, it has taken a bit of time for my skin to react but its getting so much better now. So after removing all my make up I apply this to a cleansed a face and leave on for 10 minutes and wash of with warm water and this gentle exfoliating pad, this is super easy to remove there is no need for harsh rubbing as its a super thin & clear mask.

This helps to regenerate new skin cells, and keep the skin hydrated and nourished. I have really been able to see a difference in the improvement of my skin being repaired. An area on my chin was the worst and my skin was so sore and dry and after the first couple of applications the skin started to repair itself and areas of dry flaky patches are slowly disappearing. One of the ingredients in this product is Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, now we all know that aloe is so good for your body, but when it comes to the skin it helps to reduces dry or damaged skin and helps restore suppleness. 

This also helps remove impurities, its sometimes thought that when a product is said to help remove impurities it will simply stop them coming out, or just get rid of them completely. But in my eyes the products help to remove by drawing them out from the skin, which doesn't mean the spot will go away instantly it has to get worse before getting better, like a lot of things. So while using this mask my under the skin spots did come to the surface and then have gradually been disappearing.

So to give you an idea as to what I have been dealing with I've attached a picture.
(I am sorry if this is not what you want to see)


This may not seem too bad to some people as you might be someone who struggles a lot more than me but please be aware that I am just sharing my experience with a product that has helped my skin in some way.

And this is after a few weeks of using the Dermo defence mask, so my skin is slowly improving thanks to its help.



I would highly recommend this mask if your sensitive to a lot of other masks out there as  this is designed for sensitive skin, it isn't to fragranced so it doesn't feel harsh on the face. If you just want a light pampering mask for a male or female then this is certainly worth a go and you will see a difference in the appearance of your skin. You only have to see by the photos!!

I hope you all enjoyed reading this and seeing the improvement, leave comments below of any other product recommendations that you may have used yourselves!

MY SPOT SAVIOUR..

So I have decided to write about my favourite skin care products for this month, I love all skincare products anything to help my skin out by hydrating, reduce spots & impurities. I have combination oily skin so I always find a lot of different products available but only so many work that I have tried so far.

So you want to know what products I use right?


I am going to go through the 3 steps - Cleanse, Tone & Moisturise.

1. Cleanse..

I have been using 2 products to cleanse my skin and remove make up, I find this works for me really well because it really helps removes any make up and dirt (dirt I know sounds odd but from being out all day your skin does collect this).

To start with I remove all of my make up with the Garnier Micellar cleansing gel wash, believe me when I say you only need a small amount so don't over do it with this product.


Dampen your face with a splash of warm water and apply one pump into the palm of your hand rub into the skin for a good minute or so, making sure your really working the product into the skin. Grab a damp flannel / muslin cloth and gently wipe the product away, this will then take the makeup away from your skin. Be gentle around the eye and lip area try not to drag the skin.

This micellar gel wash is gentle on the skin, I will admit that the 1st time I used this I applied a little too much so when I used it around my eyes it sting a small amount, but further applications I used a lot less and it was fine after that. So just remember not to use a lot! This smells incredible as well, not chemically at all.

For a second cleanse I use the MOA green cleansing balm with bamboo cloth. 'Oh my' this is an amazing product for the skin. It helps boost hydration back into the skin especially around any dry patches. It has great healing powers to this cleanser, it helps with scars, bumps, bites and grazes. This is basically a repair balm this is why I use this as the 2nd cleanse because after removing make up any blemishes and scars underneath my makeup this has been helping my skin get back to youthful stage. It really is the bomb!!


You get the bamboo face cloth with this, which feels amazing on the skin!! It has a soft side and then what feels like an exfoliating side. With this product you only need a small amount again, I simply take a dab of this and rub all over my face making sure all dry patches are covered too. After all the product is rubbed into the skin, get your bamboo cloth using the exfoliating side get it under a hot tap and then rub gently over your face and then go back over with the softer side and cold water. DONE!!

After using this product my skin feels so refreshed and hydrated and it feels nourished again. Definitely worth purchasing this one if you have ever struggled with acne or just scars in general it will help reduce them for sure, the tea-tree and yarrow is what helps heal the skin.


2. Lets tone..

I love the brand Pixi and I know that a lot of bloggers will have tried the Pixi glow tonic so I knew I had to join the band waggon with this one. I have been using this toner for a while now and I love it soo much!!


This helps to brighten my skin after cleansing, it instantly feels refreshing. It is also a exfoliating toner so it helps remove dead skin cells from the surface. You only need a few drops of this onto a cotton pad to apply to your whole face, and this also helps diminish scars and sun damage with applying it morning and night every day. 

It is suitable for all skin types so there is no need to say no to this product.

3. Time to moisturise..

This will forever be my all time favourite moisturiser, I have spoken about this in a few of my favourite videos on my youtube channel. Its the Bee Good Plump & Firm Youth Enhancing Moisturiser.




I really do adore this product, the quality is fantastic and the brand is known for using all natural ingredients such as Honey, British Propolis, Shea butter etc. I have actually just finished this so I do need to pick another one up. Again with this cream you only need a pea sized amount which is plenty to use across your face and neck area.

This is for all skin types again, and I have said before you really need to try this if you haven't already, it has so many benefits some of which are;
  • Instantly plumps and firms the skin
  • Softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Leaves skin looking instantly refreshed and hydrated
  • Skins looks dewy
  • Leaves you with youthful luminosity
What more could you want from a moisturiser!! Oh and just incase you hadn't noticed this product has won the CEW Beauty awards for 2015.

FEBRURARY SKINCARE FAVOURITES / 1.2.3 STEP

Anyone else agree with me that February has just flown by? I feel like I've missed out on so much because its passed so fast!!

So lets just start with the fact that February's box was designed around it being the month of Love (Valentines day). The box was beautifully designed, I think the best by far.



What do you think? Appeal to you?

Yess.... I thought so!

OK so I can tell you now I am in love with every single product from this box, that's the 1st for a while, there is a real variety this time. Skincare, Haircare, Nails, Makeup and Perfume. I mean what more could you ask for!

Lets start with this gorgeous scented perfume from Jeanne Arthes. So the name will give you an idea as to what this perfume smells like. The name -  L'Eau de Rose.


As you may have guessed, yes this is a perfume that smells like rose! The in fragrance right now! A very floral sent but not too overpowering. I have been finding this a perfect daytime sent, it isn't a super long lasting perfume but Ideal for a quick refresh during the day. If you love the smell of fresh flowers this will be perfect for you and it is just the right size to fit into any handbag!!

How about a bit of make up now. Here is the Beat the blues skin illuminator by the brand MeMeMe. I thought this would be my least favourite out of the box and if you saw my unboxing video you will see why, however my mind has been changed. I LOVE IT!!


So this is in the colour Oyster Gold, I know looks a little dark but believe me it isn't. You can use this as either a illuminator or a highlighter its up to you. For me I have been using it as a illuminator together with my foundation application and oh boy does it work.

I simply dot this on my forehead, cheek bones down the centre of my nose and my chin, and then simply blend it together with my foundation. This leaves my skin looking dewy with a slight glow. To explain it a bit easier, think about this... Your on holiday and your getting ready to go out at night, you have a beautiful golden tan and you apply a small amount of foundation as your face already has that summer glow, well that is how this illuminator looks on my skin. I mix this with my Clinique Beyond Perfection concealer & foundation and just looks perfect.

Most definitely worth a purchase in my eyes and isn't all that expensive either, trust me this is must to add to your make up collection.

Skincare now, and this is the Noir Eternae Youth Potion, Face Scrub by the brand La Theorie Des Volcans.


At first I didn't quite grasp the idea of the face scrub, so my idea was that you left this on the skin and from the pink application it would then turn grey as it dried onto your skin. WRONG! That isn't how it is supposed to work.

So as you rub this mask into the skin it will gradually turn grey as it gets to work, which is something I'm really enjoying. Its a bit of fun added into my skincare regime. This helps to remove dead skin cells and help reduce impurities and redness which I have just started to notice a difference in my skin. The only thing I have noticed with this scrub is the texture is more like a clay paste which I find unusual for scrub, but also interesting because it really does feel like its working and my skin is thanking me for using it so I am happy!! Oh and just to add smells incredible too.

Haircare next - yes??

OK so this is the Honey Strength Restorer Balm by Garnier.


Firstly can I just say how cute the size of this is!! I have tried the Garnier Ultimate blends shampoo & Conditioner and I didn't get on with that very well so I was a bit sceptical about trying this. I tried this just under a week ago now and I only got one use out of it, but I do have super thick hair so that could be why, however if you have thin hair you will definitely get more than one use out of it.

This hair care product smells gorgeous, made with Royal Jelly, Propolis and Honey. After the one use with this product my hair was left lovely and smooth and hydrated. I simply applied this to the middle to end lengths of my hair and left on for about 7mins. Its recommended to leave on for 1-5mins, however my hair is very thick so leaving it on for those few extra minutes just helps to a healthier look. Personally I don't think this is a product I would go out and buy again only reason being is that there are so many brands that offer similar products.

Finally time to see some nail products. This is the Ciate London Paint pot in Iced Frappe.


Oh the colour, the packaging, and the quality!! TOP MARKS HERE!!

I love this nail polish I can understand why these polishes are little more on the pricey side, the quality of the polish is brilliant, it applies beautifully and sits well on the nails. I love the brush applicator its fits the shape of my nails really well making application even easier.

The colour is gorgeous, its a pink/nude shade and after 2 coats its perfectly coated and leaves a gel like shine, and so far this hasn't chipped. (I have been wearing for 3 days)

Also lastly can we just appreciate the packaging, you get 13.5ml which is a great amount of polish and a cute little bow on the front of the bottle, I think this just adds a little something extra!!!!

Right that is everything I received in the February Glossy box. I love the products in this box nothing has actually disappointed me so I highly recommend you go out and pick these up!

What do would you go out and purchase after seeing the products?

If you want to see me open February's box here it is, take a watch and I will talk to you soon!

VALENTINES GLOSSYBOX REVIEW - FEB 2017

Sunday, 26 February 2017


Anyone else agree with me that February has just flown by? I feel like I've missed out on so much because its passed so fast!!

So lets just start with the fact that February's box was designed around it being the month of Love (Valentines day). The box was beautifully designed, I think the best by far.



What do you think? Appeal to you?

Yess.... I thought so!

OK so I can tell you now I am in love with every single product from this box, that's the 1st for a while, there is a real variety this time. Skincare, Haircare, Nails, Makeup and Perfume. I mean what more could you ask for!

Lets start with this gorgeous scented perfume from Jeanne Arthes. So the name will give you an idea as to what this perfume smells like. The name -  L'Eau de Rose.


As you may have guessed, yes this is a perfume that smells like rose! The in fragrance right now! A very floral sent but not too overpowering. I have been finding this a perfect daytime sent, it isn't a super long lasting perfume but Ideal for a quick refresh during the day. If you love the smell of fresh flowers this will be perfect for you and it is just the right size to fit into any handbag!!

How about a bit of make up now. Here is the Beat the blues skin illuminator by the brand MeMeMe. I thought this would be my least favourite out of the box and if you saw my unboxing video you will see why, however my mind has been changed. I LOVE IT!!


So this is in the colour Oyster Gold, I know looks a little dark but believe me it isn't. You can use this as either a illuminator or a highlighter its up to you. For me I have been using it as a illuminator together with my foundation application and oh boy does it work.

I simply dot this on my forehead, cheek bones down the centre of my nose and my chin, and then simply blend it together with my foundation. This leaves my skin looking dewy with a slight glow. To explain it a bit easier, think about this... Your on holiday and your getting ready to go out at night, you have a beautiful golden tan and you apply a small amount of foundation as your face already has that summer glow, well that is how this illuminator looks on my skin. I mix this with my Clinique Beyond Perfection concealer & foundation and just looks perfect.

Most definitely worth a purchase in my eyes and isn't all that expensive either, trust me this is must to add to your make up collection.

Skincare now, and this is the Noir Eternae Youth Potion, Face Scrub by the brand La Theorie Des Volcans.


At first I didn't quite grasp the idea of the face scrub, so my idea was that you left this on the skin and from the pink application it would then turn grey as it dried onto your skin. WRONG! That isn't how it is supposed to work.

So as you rub this mask into the skin it will gradually turn grey as it gets to work, which is something I'm really enjoying. Its a bit of fun added into my skincare regime. This helps to remove dead skin cells and help reduce impurities and redness which I have just started to notice a difference in my skin. The only thing I have noticed with this scrub is the texture is more like a clay paste which I find unusual for scrub, but also interesting because it really does feel like its working and my skin is thanking me for using it so I am happy!! Oh and just to add smells incredible too.

Haircare next - yes??

OK so this is the Honey Strength Restorer Balm by Garnier.


Firstly can I just say how cute the size of this is!! I have tried the Garnier Ultimate blends shampoo & Conditioner and I didn't get on with that very well so I was a bit sceptical about trying this. I tried this just under a week ago now and I only got one use out of it, but I do have super thick hair so that could be why, however if you have thin hair you will definitely get more than one use out of it.

This hair care product smells gorgeous, made with Royal Jelly, Propolis and Honey. After the one use with this product my hair was left lovely and smooth and hydrated. I simply applied this to the middle to end lengths of my hair and left on for about 7mins. Its recommended to leave on for 1-5mins, however my hair is very thick so leaving it on for those few extra minutes just helps to a healthier look. Personally I don't think this is a product I would go out and buy again only reason being is that there are so many brands that offer similar products.

Finally time to see some nail products. This is the Ciate London Paint pot in Iced Frappe.


Oh the colour, the packaging, and the quality!! TOP MARKS HERE!!

I love this nail polish I can understand why these polishes are little more on the pricey side, the quality of the polish is brilliant, it applies beautifully and sits well on the nails. I love the brush applicator its fits the shape of my nails really well making application even easier.

The colour is gorgeous, its a pink/nude shade and after 2 coats its perfectly coated and leaves a gel like shine, and so far this hasn't chipped. (I have been wearing for 3 days)

Also lastly can we just appreciate the packaging, you get 13.5ml which is a great amount of polish and a cute little bow on the front of the bottle, I think this just adds a little something extra!!!!

Right that is everything I received in the February Glossy box. I love the products in this box nothing has actually disappointed me so I highly recommend you go out and pick these up!

What do would you go out and purchase after seeing the products?

If you want to see me open February's box here it is, take a watch and I will talk to you soon!

Its a new year for Glossybox .... lets see what was inside?



So January's box was the signature pink and black box, apart from this time the inside of lid has written "You can't milk an almond". I will be honest I am not sure I quite understand this quote so if you do, please share!!!

So January's box wasn't a great start to the year, it was OK but not amazing, but lets get into the products!


So I received the 3 Hairon plastic spiral hair ties. I've received these before in a box and I do love these so I knew I wouldn't have a problem with them it was just a difference in colour this time. I love the colour, my hair does have a hint of purple and pink in and they sit nicely within my hair. They are designed to leave your hair kink free and reduce snags to the hair. These work really well, my hair doesn't snap as easily when I take these out compared to standard hair ties. My hair is quite thick and if I leave these in all day they don't leave my hair completely kink free but they do help in some way so you cant really go wrong with these.


This is by far my favourite beauty product from this months box, It's always nice to receive a higher end make up product and I do love the Balm. So this is one of the individual eyeshadow from the Meet Matt(e) Trimony palette. This particular shade is called Matte Kumar and it is a beautiful deep burgundy colour. The pigmentation is deep and matte. It blends perfectly for either a natural or smoky look, and you can use these either wet or dry.
I can highly recommend The Balm Cosmetics eyeshadow's as I already own the Nude'tude palette and the colours are incredible.  


So this Kale fix moisturising cream from the brand Nip & Fab is something I'm still trying to get used to, I am not sure if its working well with my skin right now. Its smells really healthy if that even makes any sense, but since using it I seem to be breaking out a bit but I am sticking with it because I review the products but also It has amazing ingredients that I hopeful its going to work in all ways it claims to.

I feel like this has been smoothing my skin out and leaving a glow but I have noticed a few more spots than usual, but then that could be down to a number of different things as I have been feeling unwell recently. (sad face)

The ingredients in this is something I have definitely not tried in a cream before, Kale, Watercress, Almond milk (among others too). It sounds like something you would pop into a fruit & veg juice or smoothie, not onto your face. Like I said I'm still giving this time to work as there is just something about this that I love.


This is the Unani Illuminate Cleansing Milk, this came as a full size product which I can say will last me a long time as you only need to use a small pea sized amount! This is a cleansing milk that helps to remove makeup, restore your skins elasticity and leave a soft smooth finish. It definitely removes make up, not so great on eye make up but 100% your face products. I cant say I have noticed a difference in the texture of my skin but it does leave my skin free from product.

Like I said earlier I only use a tiny amount. I apply this onto damp skin and massage in for a good couple of minute's and then follow by rinsing with cold water and a muslin cloth.


OK, so you all know how I feel about sheet masks, there just not my thing at all. Every time I receive one of these in my box I just know I wont get on with them. I know I shouldn't judge a product before I try them but its the one skincare product that just doesn't agree with me!

This is the Manuka Honey face mask by Vitamasques, it is a little bit different to the other formula's I have tried before, this was more of a watery mask where as the others I had tried were more of a gel like texture with a lot of extra product inside the packaging.

This was a little easier to apply however it says to apply the mask tightly over your skin. Once I had applied it, it would stay put for a minute and then all of sudden it would loosen around the chin area so it just wouldn't stay put. I am starting to think it is just my face that doesn't like these sheet masks!

Unfortunately I didn't notice any difference in my skin, it states it will nourish the skin but I'm sorry to say that I just couldn't tell any difference at all.

That is everything in the January box, what are your thoughts?

This wasn't my favourite box at all but that's just my opinion, lets hope February is a good one!!

Wow 2016 certainly passed by, I had even forgotten that I hadn't uploaded a review post for December's Glossbox, so here it is....


My favourite box by far for 2016, perfect for the Christmas party season. What is better than having a waterproof brow sealer, Nude Lipstick, a highlighter palette, a Forrest green eyeshadow and a pink/nude nail polish. Just perfect if you ask me!!

The box was designed beautifully for December and I must say perfect for all us beauty bloggers out they. White and gold is such a pretty colour, great for some cracking Instagram shots!!

Anyway onto the actual products, so first off I was excited to see a brow gel in this month's box, this is by the brand Lipcote. If you haven't heard of them let me tell you that they do the lipstick sealer as well which I have also tried before.


I have been using this brow sealer every day when I am wearing makeup. This is 100% a great sealer. I brush this through my brows after I have applied brow product whether that be a powder product or a cream product. It works well with both!
This has helped keep my brows in place all day without smudging, as we all know some cream products can either smudge or run maybe just a little bit, but with this sealer they really haven't budged!! The best feature of this product is that it is waterproof, so if you get caught in a rain shower and worried about your brows there really is no need! Trust me this really does work!!

You can pick this up from your local drugstore for £6.99

Lets talk about this little beauty of a colour .....


I am not one for a green shadow normally but I have had a couple of go's at trying this shade on my eyes, because its quite dark I feel like sometimes I might look a little strange walking out with this colour on my eyes, but it has been Christmas so I could get away with it a bit more, I've not tried many of Gosh make up products before, however trying this for the 1st time I was impressed. The colour is very pigmented so you don't need to use a lot at all. This works well as a dark smoky eye if your on a night out!!
I am still experimenting with this shade yet but what I have been enjoying, is applying it onto my bottom lash line rather than using eyeliner I have been doing this a lot recently with a lot of other shades too. So if you don't fancy going all out with a smoky eye just try smudging a small amount onto your bottom lash line, it just adds a little something extra to your make up look!

Pick this up for £7.99

A highlighting kit perfect for the party season...


A beautiful highlighting palette by the brand Essence. As we all know highlighting is popular among make up artist's and bloggers but they can be quite expensive. I have been using cheaper products for a while now before I was able to go and treat myself to more expensive ones. However not all cheaper products are useless, this is one of them. You get three shades within this palette and all 3 are beautiful colours, out of all of them I love the shade in the middle this is a pink shimmer that leaves a lovely glow next to a perfect pink blush! I have been noticing that the middle shade is the most pigmented one out of the three. Then end shade is more of a bronze highlighter again this also sits nicely next to a bronzed forehead as it offers a lovely natural glow. The first shade on the left isn't the best as it the dullest out of the three but for a cheaper highlighting palette you cant really complain about it!!

Lets move on to the lips....


OK, so I cannot explain enough how much I love this lipstick, from a brand I had not heard of before but one that I will 100% be purchasing from in the future. They are called MDM flow. Firstly the packaging is gorgeous Its a full gold bullet with the name of the brand in black. The actual bullet itself is heavy so it isn't made of a cheap plastic material that will just break away.


The colour looks slightly different in the photo's but this a dark grey toned lip shade, and its beautiful. I wear this everyday when I'm at work, its a perfect Autumn / Winter shade and fits perfectly with a light brown smoky eye, or even just a light coat of mascara on your eyes. Its a creamy matte finish and is definitely a long lasting lipstick and doesn't bleed at all, just perfect what else do you need. Its also super moisturising on your lips as it holds vitamin E component.

You can pick these up for £18

Finally lets finish of with a nail polish....


We have the Revlon nail polish in Grey Suede, to me this looks more of a pink shade but the description is grey suede. When you apply this to your nails it does show up more pink I will be honest but it still looks great!
I never really know how to write well about a polish because lets be honest all polishes chip after a few days to a week. It is said that this can last up to 10 days but I certainly didn't get 10 days chip free. I know I wont get a chip free result from normal nail polishes because of where I work, if I want that sort of result I have to opt for gel nails!

However if your after a everyday natural nail look then this colour is adorable, I say its a beautiful pastel finish after 2 coats. Perfect to wear if your of out shopping, attending a event or would even look beautiful for a wedding look!!
(yes I have weddings on my mind as I am currently planning one)

You can pick this up for £6.49 (on offer at boots for £4.49 currently)

So guy's that is my December Glossybox review. I hope you enjoyed taking a look at everything I received last month. Like I said at the beginning this has been my best box for 2017. I'm looking forward to receiving the January box as I have seen good things so far and I know there is a higher brand inside this time after seeing a sneak peak on the beauty leaflet!!

If you want to see me open the December box then take a watch below you will also be able to see me swatch some of the colours...

Take care and speak soon!!

Finally my fiance and I are taking a little break away from everything at home and spending some time with family for just short of a week. We have had a lot happening at the moment so we decided after christmas day, it would be a great idea to get away and see some other sights!! 
I am currently away at the moment in a lovely little village/town called Honfleur in the Northen part of France for the last part of December. It has been a while since we have been away so we are really taking the time out to have a break so hopefully having some time away from work and the stress from things happening in normal life will clear my mind and help me in the new year to start over and get some great posts out on my blog as I have really struggled to find inspiration for writing great posts. I really enjoy reading and writing blogs but I have hit a bit of a wall this past few months. 
If anyone has tips in finding inspiration for their posts let me know, I will be forever greatful. 
So please bear with me while im away and taking a bit of time away, Im sure you wont mind.!!  





A NEEDED BREAK....

This is such an exciting time for me right now! Its been 7 years that my partner and I have been together :) some may say thats a short time some may agree with me and say thats a long time for a relationship. Weve been togther since I was the age of 18 and at that point I wasnt really looking for a relationship but naturally it jut happended.
As all relationships we had our ups and downs with a lot of things but we have worked through them and risen above everything.
A lot of our friends and family have been waiting for this moment for a long long time, and on the 11th november this year we anounced our engagement!
We went out to dinner at our usual favourite place, which of course was Frankie and Bennies (I love anything like pasta & pizzas). Il just point out at no point on this night did I think he would pop the question. He was too calm.
After dinner we decided to take a walk around Lincoln Cathedral which is just beautiful, even more so at night time when all the lights are hitting it. It was so cold that night aswell, normally I am not a fan of walking around somewhere when its freezing cold however he talked me round by saying we were going pokemon hunting! (Yes i know... sad but I loved it) Obviously we didnt actually go pokemon hunting we had a walk around the catherdral and just as we got to the front of it he was down one knee and proposed!!!!
I was so shocked and suprised that I actually asked him if he was serious. I really couldnt believe he was asking me... but of course I said yes! I was and still am so so happy!!!
Of course after all the high emotions of actually being proposed to we got in contact with all of our family and friends. They were all over the moon for us, my parents obviously knew as he had already asked my dad for permission. Everybody is so happy for us both and cannot wait for the wedding. So here comes all the planning. Wow! Im so excited but a little stressed il admit, I never realised how many things there are to think about with a wedding but it will be so much fun!!!!
Im hoping to blog as much as I can about our journey to planning our wedding!! I just wanted to share something different on my blog as this is such exciting news for us!
If anyone has advice to planning a wedding be sure to let me know..
Catch you all soon! 😊 x
