It’s Okay to be Unsure About Your Life.

Snapseed 3Snapseed 5

I recently had a bit of a freak out over my life. I suddenly realised that I no longer want to do what I’ve been planning to do over the last few years. I wanted to give up on everything I had worked towards.

I’ve wanted to be a makeup artist for so long, and I spent a good few years in college studying and training to be a makeup artist, and I absolutely loved doing it. I learnt everything from fashion, beauty, face and body painting, special effects and hair styling, and I love being so creative and artistic all the time. Yet after taking a year off before going to uni, I suddenly came to the realisation that I don’t want to do this as a career. I don’t want to go to university for 3 years and spend thousands and thousands of pounds on something that I no longer love. That would be a waste.

Telling my mum that I had changed my mind was awful, but in the end I had no reason to stress as she was so supportive of my choice. She genuinely wants what is best for me, and if I’m not happy then why should I continue with it for another 3 years.

So the question is now, what do I want to do? And the answer is I have no idea! I’m 22 and I have no idea what I want to do with my life, which kind of stressed me out to start with.

Over the last couple of days I started to piece my life together and figure out what I want to do, and for the now I don’t want to give myself a solid plan. Like I said, I’m 22 and in the grand scheme of things, thats not old at all. I have years to figure myself out, so I’m going to take it step by step.

For now my plan is to get myself a full time job, and save money. One of the things I’m desperate to do is go travelling. I’ve seen some of Europe throughout my life, but I want to see more. So at the moment, my plan is to interrail around Europe in the summer of 2019. That gives me a year and a half to save my money, and have the experience of a life time. I’m going to talk more about my travelling plans in a separate blog post, so keep an eye out for that. Other than that, I want to work a lot on this blog. I absolutely love blogging, and writing whats on my mind, so hopefully this blog will become bigger and better. And if i do go travelling that will make for some amazing content, which I’m already excited to write!

So the purpose of this post is to basically say that its okay to not know what you want to do. These things will come to you in time, and I’m okay with waiting for that moment.

Huda Beauty | Warm Brown Obsessions Palette


I definitely squealed a little bit inside when I saw the teasers for the new Huda Beauty mini palettes on trendmoon! I already own the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette, so I knew if these were any way as good as that then I would love it!

There are four different palettes to choose from- The Smokey Obsessions Palette, The Warm Brown Obsessions Palette, The Mauve Obsessions Palette and The Electric Obsessions Palette. I was instantly drawn to the gorgeous warm tones of the Warm Brown Palette, and I knew that it would become a staple in my everyday makeup routine.

These palettes retail for an affordable £25 each which I think for the quality, and the brand in general is pretty reasonable, and you can purchase Huda Beauty products from Cult Beauty.

When the palette arrived I was surprised by how small it was. I don’t know why but I was expecting it to be a lot bigger than it is, but now looking at it, it is the perfect size- especially for travelling! The palette comes with a pretty good mirror, and the nine shades, in reasonably sized pans.

So moving onto the actual shades. The palette consists of 8 matte shades, and one shimmer, which I think is okay. I personally really love an all matte eyeshadow look at the moment, so this wasn’t a problem for me at all.

The top row has a Deep Burgundy shade, a bright orange and a dark red (it looks more bright in the swatches). All of these swatched really well. The pigment is really strong and they felt really creamy.

The middle row has a really dark, chocolate brown, a super shimmery gold, and a creamy white. The brown is perfect for deepening up the crease, and the pigment of this is really good. The gold shimmer swatched amazingly! As you can see in the images the pigment is so strong, and it looks so vibrant and bright. I cannot wait to play around with this. As for the creamy white, its the perfect shade to put all over the lid, to set any eye primer you use, and to neutralise the lid.

The bottom row has a peachy, pink shade, a light brown and a rusty red. Again these all swatched really well, the pigment was really strong on all of the shades. The light brown shade is the perfect transition shade for the crease, and the rusty red is such a pretty shade. I can see myself using it a lot.


So here is a makeup look I created using this palette. I love how the palette performed on the eyes. The colours were pigmented and blended out so easily. The gold shimmer is so intense and pretty, and I absolutely love it. Overall I’m super happy with the palette, and it’s definitely going to be a good one for everyday wear.

My Kiehls Skin Care Favourites


Skin Care to me is such a huge part of my daily routine. It’s always been something I have loved and been fascinated by, but I’ve always struggled to find something that really works for my skin. My skin is so up and down, and I never know whether it wants to be dry or oily, or a bit in-between, so I need products to help balance it out.

For the longest time I’ve always used cheap, drugstore brands, which are great, but I’ve found they don’t do an awful lot for my skin personally, so I started looking into more high end skincare brands to see if they can make an improvement. I’ve used products from Liz Earl, Estee Lauder, Emma Hardie, the lot, and I’ve not fallen in love with any of them, until I tried Kiehls.

I’m not 100% sure what initially made me want to try Kiehls, but I remember my first product from them being the Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, which I bought in an airport in the South of France, and I instantly fell in love with it. The eye cream really helps to plump up the skin around my eyes, and helps to make me look more awake, which is essential for me with the dark circles I have under my eyes.

This product started off an amazing, yet expensive addiction for me. From there on I went on to try the Ultra Facial Cleanser and the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing serum Concentrate. The Ultra Facial Cleanser is a creamy cleanser, that when massaged into the skin with water, foams up and makes my skin feel really firm and well cleansed. I don’t use this to remove my makeup, as I find it quite sensitive to use around my eyes, but as a second cleanser I couldn’t recommend it enough. As for the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate- This is THE BEST product I’ve ever used on my skin. This serum gives instant results to the skin, making the skin appear more plump, hydrated, radiant and smooth. I stopped using this for a while after I ran out of my first bottle, and my skin had a freak out. I cannot live without this.

Following this came the Ultra Facial Moisturiser and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. The Ultra Facial Moisturiser is perfect for dry skin. Its not heavy on the skin, but gives the skin instant and lasting moisture. This is one of the only moisturisers I have repurchased time and time again. The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is such a cult product for Kiehls, which is what made me want to try it. The thought of putting oil on my skin scared me a lot initially, but it works wonders! I use 2 drops of this and I press it into the skin at the end of my skin care routine. This, similar to the hydro-Plumping serum gave instant results. When I wake up in the morning my skin looks fresh and radiant.

I’ve recently started using the Daily Reviving Concentrate, which again is so good. I use this in the same way as I do the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, but at the end of my day time routine. This gives really similar results as the night time one, and has the most lovely scent of lemons. Its so refreshing to put on my skin in the morning.

The last two products I use are new to me, and I only have them in mini’s. The first is the Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner, which so far I’m really enjoying using. I’m also using the Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence. I’m not 100% sure of the purpose of this product, I got given it as a freebie, but it feels really lovely on my skin, and I’m excited to see how my skin looks over the next few weeks with using this.

Have you tried anything from Kiehls? Whats your favourite, and what products do you want to try out?

How I keep Organised | 2018 bullet Journal

IMG_0023IMG_0024IMG_0025IMG_0026IMG_0027IMG_0029 copy

I absolutely love organising, and I like to think I’m a very organised person in general. I love writing things down, and keeping weekly planners, and after watching so many videos on Bullet Journals I wanted to start my 2018 by making a one for myself.

The Journal I had was a Christmas gift, so I’m not actually sure where its from, but you can find tons on Amazon, for really affordable prices.

I wanted to keep my Bullet Journal really simple, and easy to keep up with. I didn’t want to use fancy writing, and crazy designs on every page, as for one I’m terrible at those things, and two it takes so long.  I also wanted to only include spreads that are suited to me, and I know I will actually fill out.

My title page is super simple, with the circle design, and the title in the middle. I wanted to add some more design to the second page, which is why I kept it so simple. For the Index I decided to add this star design, which took quite a while, and is what made me decide to keep to quite a simple design throughout, but I do love it, and thank it looks super pretty!

The next two pages were my yearly diary. These spreads are super handy to have, as its great to refer to, when doing your monthly spreads. I again kept this spread really simple, with the simple lines around the edges, and the pink over the months is there to add a bit of colour to the spread.

After this is where it gets more personal to me, and what I wanted to include in my journal. I added a 2018 Goals page, to keep track of what goals i want to achieve. I split this up into categories; Blogging, Fitness and Money, and I also added another section, reminding me to read 12 books throughout the year.

On the next page over I have a reading list page. I really like the layout of this spread, and its one of the more decorative pages in my journal. I haven’t added any books yet, as I need recommendations, so if you have any, leave them down below please!

Moving on to my tracker pages. My first tracker is my fitness tracker. My goal for the year is to workout a minimum of three days a week, so I’ve spread out the page in months, with the months split into weeks, and each week has three sections for me to fill in whenever I workout. Hopefully by the end of year all of it will be filled in.

Opposite that I have my period tracker. I’m terrible at remembering to log these, so this way I hopefully will.

Next up is my Social Media logins. This is to help me keep track of my social media accounts and the logins of them.

The last spread is my Social media Tracker. I’ve spilt this up into Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WordPress; and since photographing I’ve added Pinterest onto the end too. This is to keep track of the change in my followers monthly, and to see where I need to improve my engagement.

So those are my spreads for my 2018 Bullet journal! If you have one, let me know what spreads you’ve included in yours!

How I’m Going to Save Money in 2018

I’m absolutely rubbish when it comes to money. I have zero savings, and when I have money in my account I just spend it. One of my goals for 2018 is to save as much as I can for a trip I want to go on to new York in a couple of years time. So these are some of the things I’m going t try and do over the year to help me save. If you have any more tips then please, please let know!


  1. Set up a savings account, with a direct debit. – I want to have a direct debit sent to my savings account every month on payday, with a set amount of money to save. This way that money is already in my savings and I won’t be as tempted to spend it recklessly.
  2. Meal Prep for work- Working in a restaurant means there is always food on hand when I don’t bring any with me, but we have to pay for it, and while we do get a discount, it all adds up, and I end up spending so much money on food in work.
  3. Using my own coffee- Carrying on with my previous point, I’m always buying coffee in work, and when I’m out and about, so carrying around a reusable cup with coffee made at home will save me a small fortune. Maybe I’ll treat myself to a starbucks/costa once a week, as apposed to my multiple cups a week.
  4. Shopping my Stash- I used to do this a lot with my makeup, so I want to try it with my wardrobe too. I have so much makeup and fashion items that I can’t even remember half of what I’ve got, so I’m going to shop through my own things every few months and bring out old favourites that I’ve forgotten about instead of buying new things to add to the stash.
  5. Unsubscribe from email lists- You know those boxes you tick next to the terms and conditions, that you don’t even think about not pressing. Yeah they always mean that you’re going to end up with tonnes of emails from all the brands you shop at, giving you discount codes and letting you know when new products are released. The temptation is always too much and I end up spending my money. Unsubscribe from them! The temptation will be gone! You won’t even know about that 20% off party dresses sale!
  6. Set a weekly budget- I like to set myself a budget for the week, go to the bank, take the money out of my account and live off of that cash for the week. Make sure you know how much you need for bills etc, and work around that. Hide your card away, give it to your mum/partner etc. and ask for it back when the week is over. You can budget enough for your plans for the week, petrol for your car or other means of transport etc. and also keep an amount aside as a back up incase you have any spontaneous plans, and if not save it!

So those are the tips I’m going to be putting into action this year to save money! New York I will be coming back in a few years, with all the money to blow in Sephora and Bath and Body Works!

Theres nothing better than not having to go to work/school and having no plans but to stay in and be lazy all day! This is my guide to the perfect lazy day in, that can be enjoyed alone of with your best pals.

Get your pamper on! 

A bath is always a great way to start a lazy day. I love using a cocktail of LUSH products and setting up my iPad on the side with some YouTube videos or my current favourite TV series.

My favourite bath products include-

Avobath Bath Bomb

The Experimenter Bath Bomb

The Comforter Bubble Bar

I lazy day isn’t a lazy day without my skin care routine and a face mask. My go to cleanser at the moment is the Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser, and some of my favourite face masks include LUSH Cup O’Coffee, L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask and Kiehls Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance Masque.

lazy day 2

Exfoliating and shaving my legs is always something I’ll do on a lazy day too! My favourite Scrub is Rub, Rub, Rub from LUSH. I’ll come out of the shower and cover myself in the Body Shop Mango Body Butter after, and put on some fresh pyjamas.

If I’m feeling up to it, I’ll also paint my nails too!

2017 Beauty Favourites

2017 favourites

2017 has brought some of the best beauty products into my life! Being a makeup artist means that I have tried a lot of products over time, and being a beauty blogger and skin care addict, I’ve tried a number of beauty products also, but these are the products that have really stuck around and won’t be going anywhere for a while.

Starting with my absolute favourite makeup find ever! The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade. This stuff is the holy grail of eyebrows! Its so easy to use, lasts all day, gives you the best looking brows ever, and the tiny pot lasts so long! One pot has lasted me pretty much the whole year! I couldn’t recommend this enough!

The Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation has worked so well on my skin! I’m a full coverage kinda gal, and this gives just that! It’s full coverage but also looks so natural on the skin, and it doesn’t feel heavy. It covers all of my imperfections, and just gives my skin a flawless look. It’s my go-to foundation, and I couldn’t recommend it enough!

Next up is my most used highlight palette of the year. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in ‘That Glow’ (which isn’t available anymore! What?!). I have used and loved this palette so much, as you can clearly see from the photo. My favourite shades are ‘Sunburst’ and ‘Bubbly’. I love a really intense highlight and this gives me just that. It looks so gorgeous on the skin!

The last two makeup products are from Kat Von D. We had a new counter in Cardiff this year, and I have spent so much money there since! My first favourite from the brand is the Hydrating Primer. I have quite dry skin so this works at being a moisturiser and a primer in one for me. It helps my makeup stay put all day, and adds moisture to my skin, which works great with the Estee lauder foundation, as that can be pretty dry sometimes. My second favourite is the Lock-it Concealer. I have this in quite a light shade, which is perfect for highlighting under the eyes, but also for mixing with my other concealers. The coverage is amazing, and it hides all of my dark circles.

As for skincare, my absolute favourite is the kiehls Midnight Recovery Oil. I think Kiehls generally just kills it with their skincare, everything I have tried is incredible. The Midnight Recovery Oil is amazing. I used two drops every night, patted into the skin, and my skin looks so clear and fresh in the morning. Its one of those products where I notice a difference in the morning if I haven’t used it.

Lastly is the Rub, Rub, Rub body scrub from LUSH. This is my absolute favourite product from LUSH, and this is my third tub of it this year. I use this on dry skin before I shave my legs, and it makes my legs so smooth and soft. Its quite a moisturising scrub, thats not too harsh. I absolutely love it!

Goodbye 2017 | Hello 2018.

2017. Where do we begin… It’s not been a bad year for me at all. In fact, this year has been a pretty positive one!

*2017 Highlights*

I went to Paris twice! The first time being with Uni, and we had the opportunity to go to Makeup Forever for a Masterclass with them, which was incredible! The second time was with some of my best friends and we went to Disneyland! There is a Vlog of it HERE. Both trips were so fun, and I can’t wait to hopefully go back in 2018!

2017 also brought some of my best friends into my life from work.  These girls are amazing and definitely friends for life!

I have seen some amazing concerts, including Arianna Grande, Justin Bieber and Little Mix! All of which were incredible.










2017 was also the year I really starting taking this blog seriously, during the summer to be exact. I had dropped out of uni to take a year off, and I wanted something creative to do to keep me busy, so I came back to this blog. It has really helped me keep creative and busy, and I’m so glad I have taken it this seriously. I’ve met some great friends through my blog- Darcy, Lauren and Katy, and I have really loved every moment of it! I also think my photography has improved a lot too! I love setting up flat lays and taking beautiful pictures. I can’t wait to carry on in 2018.

*2018 Goals*

In 2018 I have a few things I want to achieve. The first being, I want to get a new job! As much as I like my job at the moment, and the people I work with are the best, I really don’t want to be working in a restaurant for much longer. I want a job that will help me progress within the career I want, which is makeup. So my goal for the next few months is to find a makeup related job!

Another goal for 2018 is to socialise more. I’m a very stay at home, on my own and have a  lazy day kinda girl, and I want to change that. I want more spontaneous and planned nights out, I want to go on random road trips to wherever I end up with friends and just go on days out in general. I need to get out of my own bubble and get out more!

One that most people want to do, is to get fitter and healthier, and I’m definitely one of those people! I love going to the gym, but its just the thought of having to go that puts me off. I want to get into a routine of going a few times a week at least, and to alter my eating habits a bit, and add more balanced meals, and less rubbish snacks. I’m happy with how my body looks at the moment, but thats not to say I wouldn’t like to be more toned and slim, because I do, and that is my goal for 2018.

As for my blog, I want to start posting twice a week, and I really want to incorporate more fashion into my blog. I have a friend who’s more than willing to help me out with photos, so be prepared for fashionista Beki, coming soon! I also want to hit a milestone within my blog, and my followers/page views. I’m not too sure yet what my goal is for this, so I may do monthly goals, to make it more realistic for me.

So heres to a great 2017, and bring on an even better 2018! 


Looking back on 2017

Christmas Header.jpg

2017 has been a great year! I’ve really discovered who I am as a person and I’ve collected so many memories! I love the fact that I’m always capturing some of my favourite moments on camera. I was scrolling through my Instagram and all of my favourite memories are there, so I thought it would be really fun to go through my Instagram on here and share some of my favourite memories of 2017.

So lets start WAY back to New Years Eve of 2016. I spent New Years with my work family, and I got WAY to drunk. I had such a good night, with such a great group of people.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.14.24

So moving on to the end of January, I went to a drag Show and I got to meet Kim Chi! This was so exciting as I LOVE Drag Queens, and everything they stand for. Kim Chi is absolutely beautiful and her makeup is literally art.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.14.42

February brought a day trip to London for the Kryolan Bag Sale. This was such a fun day, and I got £950 worth of makeup for £80. I’ll definitely be going again in 2018. We also explored London and visited the V&A Museum.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.15.00

February also included a Leaving Do for my friend Naomi. She was leaving her job in David Lloyd to move back home, so we went out to celebrate.

Moving onto to March. This was a great month as my university had a trip to Paris! We travelled to Paris by coach/ferry, and we got to have a masterclass with Makeup Forever, and we also spent the day exploring Paris.

Skipping a whole month, were going straight to May, which is my Birthday month! May brought with it a change in appearance. I went blonde! I’ve previously had blonde hair and it felt good to go back.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.16.38

This month I was also reunited with one of my best friends Beky (read her blog HERE). We road tripped to Birmingham to see Ariana Grande in concert, and it was such a good show. It was also so amazing to see Beky again after so long! (She features quite a lot on this post!)

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.16.49

I got to spend my Birthday week at my caravan in Tenby with some of my best friends! It was such a good week of relaxing, drinking and visiting theme parks.

Finally for May, one of our family friends got married! We were invited to the really small ceremony and the reception was also beautiful. It was such a lovely day.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.17.26

To kick off June, myself and my mum went on a day trip to Bath to do a spot of shopping. I love Bath as its such a pretty place to visit. my brothers actually in Uni there now, so I have even more of an excuse to visit!

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.17.41

On our trip to Bath I bought these gorgeous trousers, which have been a staple piece in my wardrobe, and probably one of my favourite purchases of 2017.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.17.58

Finally for June, I saw Justin Bieber in concert! It was such a good night, full of dancing, drinking and laughs. It was also the day of my friends birthday night out, so we headed off to town afterwards, to dance the night away.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.18.08

In July I finally started to master the art that is a Flat Lay! It took a lot of practise and a lot of deleted shots, but as I’m writing this post, I’m feeling pretty damn good about my Flat Lay skills.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.18.21

July is the month of Bekys Baby Shower! I didn’t mention it previously, but while we were seeing Ariana Grande she was currently 6 months pregnant! Her baby shower was so cute, and I was so excited to meet her little squishy in the coming months!

The end of July saw one of my close friends get married! This year is full of weddings! The wedding was so beautiful, and the reception was in a museum, which was gorgeous!

Congratulations Gill and Andrew!

August was a great month also. I went on holiday! Myself and a ton of my family set off to Cape Verde for a week! The week was full of sun, rain, relaxing and very average cocktails.

The end of August came with the idea and creation of The Girls Who Vlog and Blog. If you don’t know what this is, its a group blog and YouTube channel, created by myself, Katy, Darcy and Lauren. These girls are like sisters to me now, even though it hasn’t been that long since we’ve known each other.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.20.19

September brought another hair change! One that I really came to regret a few weeks later. I went for a silver/blonde shade, and I spent 7 hours in the hairdressers, only for me to not like it weeks later.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.50.19

The end of September I discovered my love for sitting in coffee shops for hours reading a book. I did this on a day where I was feeling pretty low, and alone, and I felt so at ease, sitting on a sofa with a book and my favourite flat white coffee. I spent a few hours there and I haven’t felt that relaxed in a long time.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 14.20.36

October has probably been my favourite month of the year! I started off the year with another new hair look! I didn’t like the blonde so I went back to my roots, and I’m a brunette again!


I got to meet some of my best friends for the first time! I met Darcy and Katy (unfortunately Lauren couldn’t come).

During this month I went to Paris! This is a trip I’ve had booked since May and it was such a magical trip! We spent 3 days in Disney and a day in Paris, and it was such a good week.

Shortly after Paris one of my friends got married, and I had the pleasure of doing her makeup!


I also went ‘Out Out’ in October! This is a VERY rare occurrence, but I loved getting really dressed up and although I got a tad too drunk I still had a fab night with all of my work friends!

And finally to finish October I saw Little Mix on Halloween! And my gorgeous friend Beky came with me, even though it was her first birthday with her little baba! We had such a great night and we couldn’t get over how close we were to out girl crush Perrie Edwards!

Moving onto November, and another trip up to Wiltshire to see Beky, Madison and Melody! I love day trips up to see these guys, and I hope next year I can squeeze in more!


I also went to my first ever Ball this month, which was awesome. I love getting all dressed up and shopping for a ball gown!

A friend of mine is getting married in December so I got to go to her Hen Party this month too! We did a cocktail making class in Slug and Lettuce which was fab!

We’re in December! This is a full, packed month and I’ve got so much going on!

Firstly we have two outings for my nans 80th birthday, with the first being afternoon tea at the Angel Hotel. It was such a lovely afternoon with a few of my family members.

It snowed! It may have been the most pathetic attempt at snow in Cardiff but it was the first snowfall of December, and it made me feel so festive! Heres hoping for more coming up!


I went to Bristol zoo for the first time ever this month too! It was absolutely freezing and loads of the animals didn’t want to come out but it was still a great day!


Third and final wedding of the year! One of my close friends Naomi got married in Brecon and it was such a fun night, spent with a great group of friends!

The day after the wedding was my works Christmas Party, which was again another great night!

What I Got For Christmas | 2017

I can’t believe Christmas is over already!!! The season seems to have gone so quickly, but I’ve had the best time with my family and friends. I’m so ridiculously full of chocolate right now that all I’m craving is fruit and salad!

While Christmas is all about being with friends and family, and the experiences, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited for presents too. I absolutely love reading and watching ‘What I Got For Christmas’ posts and videos. I find it so interesting to see what everyone received, and it gives me some ideas to buy in the sales and gift ideas for next year, so I thought I would share some of the bits I received with you all too! (Just a disclaimer: I am in no way bragging about what I received, I am extremely lucky to have gotten these things from my family, and I am so grateful for everything I got.)

So this year I received A LOT in the way of bath/face products, which I am definitely not complaining about! I had a huge selection of bath bombs from Bomb Cosmetics, which are quite the work of art. These bath bombs are so pretty looking, and I cannot wait to use them! As well as Bomb Cosmetics, I also received some Bath Bombs from The Body Shop. The Festive Cranberry ones smell absolutely incredible!


From my brother I got a gift box from LUSH. I didn’t get any bath bombs in this, but it included dome of my favourite products, such as; Sleepy Body Lotion, Twilight Shower Gel and Rose Jam Shower Gel. I also got a huge box of Sanctuary goodies, which all smell incredible.


I think my favourite present was this big box of Kiehls goodies. Kiehls is my absolute favourite brand for skin care, and my mum did well with what she chose for me! I received the ‘Ultra Facial Cleanser‘ which is my favourite cleanser, the ‘Daily Reviving Concentrate Oil‘. I use the night oil all the time so I’m really excited to try this out, and I also got the ‘Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado‘ which is perfect as I had just ran out of mine a few days prior. I also got a couple of mini’s to try out too.


Where I live in Cardiff, we recently had an Oliver Bonas open, which I was so excited about! I still haven’t had the chance to go in yet, but my mum got me a couple of cute bits from there. The first being this initial mug. I don’t know what it is about initial mugs, but I absolutely love them! She also got me this really cute eye mask. I’ve never used one before, but this will be so cute in an instagram post!


The last thing I’m including in this post is this bag from ‘Kendall and kylie’. I really love this bag, as the size is so perfect for everyday wear. Its a good quality bag, and I can wear it comfortably across my body. Its plain black, with silver hardware, so it will go with practically everything.
