My Summer Superfood (& Super-Delicious!) Salad


Over the past few months I've been experimenting with different healthy foods and as a result, have come up with some recipes that I am now making more often than not! So, I hope you will enjoy the upcoming blog posts that have more of a lifestyle focus. First up, is my take on a Summer Superfood Salad. This recipe makes a perfect lunch for a warm summer day, or a fab a side dish at a BBQ. It's light, healthy, packed with protein and fibre and most importantly, flavour. It's such a simple recipe and once the quinoa is prepared, it only takes 10 minutes to put it all together. I think it's absolutely delicious and if you make it, I hope you will think so too!

The ZOEVA Rose Golden Brush Set

Last week I made a cheeky delivery from Zoeva for some new make up brushes and I am beyond excited to show you just how absolutely beautiful these are. This is the Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set, which consists of eight essential brushes wrapped in statement rose gold packaging. And, not only do they look the part, the quality of these synthetic brushes is incredible, especially considering that each brush averages at around a mere £6! Plus, they come packaged in a gorgeous leather-look brown clutch, complete with matching rose gold hard wear. I am just completely in love with every single one of them, and here's why...

Goodbye Oily Skin With L'Occitane Ultra Matte

Over the past 18 months, my skin seems to have gravitated towards being of a much more combination skin type than ever before. Consequently, the warm Summer months do not bode well with my somewhat oily T-zone and even with a setting powder, my foundation tends to breaks up and  slip after a few hours of being busy. However, over the past few weeks I've been using something that is completely life changing when it comes to shine: the L'Occitane Angelica Ultra Matte Fluid. If you have oily skin, you have GOT to try this...

My Customised MAC Eye Shadow Quad


All the way back in November last year following my MAC make up consultation, I began customising my own Eye Shadow Pro Palette. This week, I finally popped in the final pan thereby completing my quad, which I am absolutely in love with! It consists of four of my favourite eye shadows from MAC that I can either use on an every day basis, or to create a stunning statement eye if I'm going somewhere special. Looking at my choices, I feel like I've almost tailored it for Summer, as when used all together this combination of shades creates the most beautiful bronzed-goddess look, which I am loving wearing at the moment. So, if you'd like to read about the selection of shades I've chosen from MAC in order to create my perfect palette, then keep on reading...

The Verdict: Micellar Waters (Garnier VS L'Oreal)


A few months ago, I jumped on the Micellar Water bandwagon and reviewed the L'Oreal 3 in 1 Solution, which I really enjoyed as part of my skincare routine. When I finished the bottle, I decided to go back to the drugstore for Garnier's formulation in order to compare the two. I'm half way through this one now, so - the verdict? I am definitely enjoying Garnier's Cleansing Water a whole lot more. For a few reasons, I think it has the upper hand over L'Oreal, which ensures I'm going to be repurchasing this one rather than the latter. Here's why...
