Reminiscing with AVON ♡

Hey Guys,

Avon, ah, gold ol' Avon, it was the makeup brand of my teenage years. I remember the first time, I was introduced to Avon, I say me, it was actually my mum, but of course, I was tagged to her lol. I was getting my brows done (yes, I was very early to the whole getting your brows threaded game, 13, to be precise!) and the eyebrow lady goes, have a flick through the little catalouge and write down what you want, I'll order it in for you. From that point, every time we went to her, I'd browse all the catalouges that had come in and want everything, but my favourite part was, flicking to the perfume section. I used rub the little 'rub me' sign near the fragrance, until the page bled and then totally, sniffing it in front of people getting their brows done or hair chopped, without any shame, how pleasant were I?

Haha, I can't have been the only one that did this, right? Any who, when I was offered a few bits from the new Avon Collection, I couldn't help but be taken back ...

April Favourites ♡

Hey Guys,

Aaaaah, it feels so so good to be back and actually writing up a post. You all probably figured but I took an impromptu break because I physically couldn't get any posts out. I guess a massive update is needed? Okay, so around 3/4 weeks ago, my brother was admitted into hospital and had been there until last Weds, when he finally got discharged. He was diagnosed with Colitis, it's an inflammatory bowel disease and I won't go into all the details but its where the bowel gets all red, sore and inflamed. Its not fun to say the least, it's actually quite distressing and exhausting. Also, as my brother is only 15, he's allowed a parent to stay overnight, so that's where my dad comes in, he was staying with my brother every night and then would leave to have a shower at home when I arrived. I would try and get there for 11, my dad would leave and come back around 3, then my sister would come after work at 7, and we would both leave at 10 in the night. And that cycle was repeated for just under the month. And it doesn't end there lol, to add to the mix, I had two assignments due and an exam to revise for. So there was me, lugging my laptop to the hospital, trying to get whatever I could done, and then would be up until 2 to finish the rest off! Thankfully, I somehow, I don't even know how, managed to get it done and my last exam was  week. Which means, I'm now totally free and on the job hunt! To further add to the mix, oh yes, there's more, it was my mums birthday, the first one without her, and emotions already were high, but they were pretty heightened on her birthday.  So, to sum it up, my dad was like the hospital resident whilst I was on a 11-10 visiting shift lol! So yup, that's why I physically couldn't get a post out.

Mini Gerard Cosmetics Haul ♡

Hey Guys,

Last year, I discovered Gerard Cosmetics and I couldn't be happier! Although I've only ever purchased three items, I'm sure there'll be more checkouts in the future. I think I included one of their liquid lipsticks in a favourites post before and said I would do a review but I thought I'd turn it into a haul because I took advantage of a sale Beauty Bay had and purchased two more goods. I've heard so much good about the GC setting sprays but I have yet to give them a go but what I can vouch for are their Lipsticks and Liquid Lipsticks ...

Tip Tests: Technic Cosmetics ♡

Hey Guys,

So I'm back at with a Tip Tests posts, I love writing these up because testing things is always fun and its great to test random things, but today, I'm bringing it back to makeup and testing Technic Cosmetics. A brand that has recently launched into the world of beauty and by the looks of it, everyone seems to be loving the products on offer. And also, I really wanted to test the products for the whole day and create a look and then see how it fared by the end of the day. I was kindly sent a few bits and pieces to have a play around with, and its fair to say, there were hits and misses ...

Rose Gold Love with Daniel Wellington ♡

Hey Guys,

Ah, Rose Gold, its my favourite colour, as noted on your right in that little (which needs to be changed) description! I pretty much love anything Rose Gold, jewelry, packaging, ornaments, everything, so when Daniel Wellington kindly offered to send a few pieces out, I couldn't have been happier, especially as they've recently launched a few Rose Gold Pieces! Like many others, I've lusted over DW watches which seems like forever now and when they arrived, there was not a speck of disappointment, oh oh and also, they have kindly offered a code that I am able to share with you all to get 15% of your purchases, I'll leave that below ...

Touch of Lavender | I try Eye Shadow ♡

Hey Guys,

So I'm back today, with something completely different, Eye Shadow!! You may or may not know but I'm a total eye shadow novice, I only ever wear it if I'm going to a wedding or event, however, I was kindly sent a few pieces from Elizabeth Arden's New collection launch; the Eyes Wide Open collection, which includes a range of eye shadow compacts, a statement brow gel and the Lasting Impression Mascara. And I thought, hey, I don't want to write a standard review, I want to change it up a little, so I thought I'd actually try the products, as in create some sort of a look and knowing how rubbish I am at Eye Shadow, I plunged into the deep end ...
