The Perfect Prints



I was recently lucky enough to get sent some beautiful polaroid prints from Printiki and thought I'd share a little review with you all. 

Printiki is a photo printing service where you select whichever photos you'd like printed, select what format you'd like and then they're delivered straight to your door! Taking photos is probably my favourite thing about blogging as I love seeing creative ideas and concepts come together within a photograph. Printiki is really easy to use and you can select from so many options, such as the square prints I chose or you can even have a photo book made up! You can also select the size, the finish of the photos and you can choose to add or not to add text. These are going to come in handy for me as I think they're great to use as props for the background of Instagram and blog photos! I might even hang some around my room!

What do you think of these prints? Would you ever consider using a service like Printiki?

Another Lush Haul





I recently paid a visit to one of my favourite stores on this planet- Lush! I've done my fair share of Lush hauls on this blog in the past but surely another one can't hurt. I picked up a few new bath bombs that I haven't tried before as well as a few old favourites. Here's what I bought!

Intergalactic
Hands down one of my favourite bath bombs ever. As Intergalactic hits the water it creates an explosion of colours. Pink, purple, blue and gold swirl around the bath tub while scents of peppermint, grapefruit oil and cedar-wood leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated.

Frozen
Frozen is another one of my favourites, one of the reasons being that its inspired by one of my favourite Disney movies. This one explodes with lots of amazing shades of blue as well as sparkling silver lustre. Neroli and rose oil make Frozen incredibly uplifting and refreshing.

Sex Bomb
I tend to opt for bath bombs like Sex Bomb when I really need to destress and relax. Scents of jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage fill the bath as the water turns a beautiful pink colour. Unlike Intergalactic and Frozen, Sex Bomb doesn't put on a big show, but it's gorgeous nonetheless.

Butterball
Similar to Sex Bomb, Butterball is incredibly soothing due to the warm, comforting scents of cocoa butter and ylang ylang. The cocoa butter also leaves your skin feeling baby's butt smooth!

Blackberry
Blackberry is another great one that leaves you feeling soothed, calm and relaxed due to the bergamot and frankincense oil, both which are used to sooth anxiety and nervous tension. It smells really yummy too!

Rose Bombshell
I've never tried Rose Bombshell before but I'm sure you can guess what it smells like, right? It contains both rose absolute and rose oil, as well as geranium oil and Sicilian lemon oil. From what I've seen, when this baby hits the water a whole lot of rose petals come bursting out too, so I'm very excited to give this a go!

Over and Over
I am also yet to try Over and Over but the smell is right up my alley. Over and Over is incredibly fresh due to scents of lime and fennel. Lush promises fireworks of pink, orange and gold leaving me very excited to use this one! It also contains cocoa butter meaning soft skin is right around the corner.

Have you tried any of these beauties? Which ones are your favourite?

Jo Malone Orange Blossom Cologne


It feels like forever since my last post and I'm so glad to be back! Unfortunately my poor Macbook died on me and it had to be sent away to be fixed hence no blog posts for the last 10 days (writing on your phone is way too difficult!). Today I thought I'd share with you a product I received for my 21st birthday that has quickly become one of my absolute favourite perfumes!

Described as a 'shimmering garden oasis' Jo Malone's Orange Blossom cologne contains notes of clementine flower, orange blossom and water lily with undertones of orriswood and balsamic vetiver. I'm an absolute sucker for light, fresh and fruity fragrances and this one is no exception. It's incredibly vibrant and uplifting and never fails to make you feel awake and ready for the day even if you've just rolled out of bed. It has amazing staying power and and lasts on your skin for most of the day even with only a couple sprays.

I'm super fussy with perfumes making me incredibly hard to buy for. I tend to only like really sweet and fruity fragrances so if you're not like me I'd probably steer clear of this one. However if you are a sweet person I'd definitely recommend giving this a smell as it is fast becoming my go to perfume (but everything is second place next to Viktor and Rolf Bon Bon!).

I'd love to try some other Jo Malone fragrances so be sure to leave me a comment with your favourites!

Monthly Loves | February



I know everyone says it but where on Earth did February go?! This year is just flying by so quickly. It's been a long while since I did any sort of 'favourites' post so today I thought I'd share a few of the products I was loving in February.

Georgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation This foundation has shared the number one spot for favourite foundation with NARS sheer glow for quite some time now, however I don't think I've mentioned it before on the blog. Luminous Silk is just the perfect foundation for me. It's a lovely medium coverage that can be built up, is the perfect shade for my skin tone and just looks beyond beautiful on the skin. I definitely tend to neglect other foundations in order to wear this one and I don't know what I'll do when I run out! L'Oréal Telescopic Mascara As I mentioned in my budget beauty post (find it here), the L'Oréal Telescopic Mascara is a relatively new addition to my make up bag, but I love it so much already! It gives your lashes so much length and volume and doesn't seem to transfer onto my lids or undereye anywhere near as much as others do- a definite must try! Rimmel Brow This Way This little brow duo had been sitting in my drawer collecting dust for so long before I saw Zoella raving about it in a video so of course I pulled it out. It has a powder and a wax that can be used separately or together for extra fullness. I love using the wax by itself to give my brows a really natural look while still holding them in place. NARS Laguna Laguna is a product that I've had for years and years and have always loved. However for the last year or so it's been neglected for other bronzer goodness (Too Faced bronzers are life). I recently pulled it out again and have been loving the way it works to give an all over bronze glow! Clinique Peach Pop Blush Blushes are one of my favourite make up products ever because they're just so pretty! Peach pop is no exception, just look at it! I've been using it a lot in the last month as it gives the most gorgeous glow. MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty Dainty is another blush favourite of mine for when I'm feeling more of a pink than a peach. MAC blushes are always such great quality and last for ages too! NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Stripped I'm not usually a lip gloss fan but I really, really love this one. It sits on your lips so comfortably without being sticky and is the most gorgeous color too! NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm Like most people, I absolutely love almost all matte liquid lipsticks and some of my favourites are the soft matte lip creams from NYX. They're lovely and pigmented but are super comfortable to wear. I've chosen to feature the shade Stockholm as its what I've been wearing the most but I love all of them!
