The Tatler beauty awards 2017 in partnership with Selfridges & Co!

As exam season is commencing I thought I’d publish an exciting post before I hide in my books for a little while but I won’t be too long because once these exams are over I’ll be blog focused and I cannot wait.

On Wednesday beauty editors from Tatler, Francesca White and Jennifer George hosted a Q&A event at The Selfridges in The Trafford Centre. As they partnered up and published a article on The Tatler Beauty Awards in partnership with Selfriges in the May issue of Tatler.

On arrival I was greeted by the lovely Rose Gallagher and met blogger Clare from iliketweet, it was lovely to meet her finally after following her for so long. We then got a front row seat together whilst we waited for the event to commence (then having that typical the first time you meet a blogger chat).

As the seats started to fill up we sat back and got introduced to Francesca White and Jennifer George. They then started talking about some of their favourite products they’d included in the issue from the La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20 which melts in like a dream to the Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss described as on-sticky and full of pigment.

Then onto one of my favourite topics skincare they revealed the top products which consisted of the The Rose Stem Cell Mask by Peter Thomas Roth to one of my all time favourites the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Cleansing Oil.

Whilst getting offered delicious canapes to Champagne and lemonade the beauty talks didn’t stop it continued with holy grail skincare routines to how to keep your skin hydrated in a warm climate. It was lovely to get tips off the professionals and recommendations for our specific skin types on beauty and skincare.

*Jewellery haul with Unicorn Born!

With my stereotypical obsession of unicorns I came into contact with the jewellery brand Unicorn Born owned by the lovely lady Fee and wanted all of you to see how unique her handmade jewellery is which makes it so special.

The slim velvet choker  caught my attention immediately as it was super thin which I love as it’s not too alarming and can add that 70’s vibe to any outfit no matter how you style it. Previously, with chokers I’ve bought they’ve ended up loose after a couple of times I’ve worn them and didn’t quite fit my neck how I’d wanted it. However, I wore this choker and it fitted perfectly, I’ll keep you updated whether or not it does loosen after a while.

Another one of my personal favourites is the Twisted ring which is perfect for stacking if you love your rings like me. It’s such a good fit especially with other rings its super adorable and dainty. You can add either statement rings to spice it up a little or other rings similar to it to be more casual. It’s such good quality too, which I wasn’t quite expecting it to be if I’m honest.

Unicorn Born have fast delivery and you receive all your items in the cutest packaging as you can see above so do head over and check it for more quirky handmade jewellery.

Skincare products that I’ve been loving!

 

Swollen tonsils, exam stress and life leaves you with awful skin I don’t know if that’s just me. However all these factors led me to consolidating some of my favourite skincare products. All these products work wonders no matter what my skin is going through. I haven’t blogged in a week and I’m sorry but being Ill is the worst 😦 I’M BACK and a little better. So why not share with you some of my favourites right now!

T Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips –  After seeing so many other bloggers rave about these I hopped on the bandwagon and now I know why! They’re so good to get rid of blackheads and dead skin on your nose. They’re so easy to apply and are good for all skin types as I have quite sensitive skin too.

Body Shop Seaweed Clay Mask –  I’ve always loved body shop face masks and they’re the ones I continue to use, I mean you just cannot go wrong I love this seaweed one it works amazingly! It leaves my skin feeling super smooth and hydrated, I really want to try the charcoal one too have you tried it?

Bee Good Cream Cleanser –  Another one of my favourite products is this cream cleanser which I need to repurchase asap. It is perfect for when my skin breaks out. Its so soothing to apply and washes off leaving my skin feeling 10x better than it originally was.

*Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream –  I love this facial cream its perfect to apply before applying make up and after you’ve took your make up off. It’s the perfect shield for your skin. Leaving it feeling refreshed for a whole 24hrs without a doubt. It’s easily absorbed and is compatible with all skin types too.

*Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser –  I love taking my make up off with this facial cleanser as it is one of the best facial washes I’ve used it leaves my skin feeling so soft and glowing. You only need the tiniest amount too and it works the same whereas other products you do need quite a bit.

*Easter Cupcakes with Cake Angels!

I’ve been so excited to publish this post!  As you may know I  love keeping myself occupied and one of the ways is baking. I mean you cannot have a better Saturday with sugar all over the work top and chocolate on your nose. It’s just a win win. Recently I got an exciting package of Cake Angels to contribute to my Easter baking.

The recipe I used for my fairy cakes is from the BBC food page which you can click here to access.

Once I had baked my cakes I got some chocolate icing at added it to the top of my cakes. I then decorated the cakes with the following toppings:

Cake & Dessert Sprinkles: I love sprinkles whether that’s for cakes or any types of desserts but for cakes they’re definitely my favourite. My favourite sprinkles have to be the multi-coloured ones because they’re just so pretty and really tasty.

White Mini Marshmallows: If you know my me you’ll know I LOVE marshmallows more than anything so I couldn’t be happier decorating my cakes with marshmallows.

Daisy Flower Fun: Finally I had some lovely flowers and Easter themed iced toppings they totally finish the cakes off perfectly. They look super adorable and are prefect for any occasion to compliment an event.

What’s your favourite way to decorate cakes? Comment below.

My favourite fragrances!♥

As the sun has made an appearance lately, I thought it’d be a great idea to share some of my favourite fragrances with you. As I know there’s nothing better than a good fragrance when the sun is out.

*Barbour For her Fragrance – Selfridges. This definitely is one of my favourite fragrances, it has such a fruity scent which you can’t go wrong with especially when the sun is shining. It’s such a pretty scent of sweet vanilla. The packaging I mean you can’t go wrong with rose gold!

Hugo Boss Orange Fragrance For Her. I’m pretty much going tell you all of these fragrances are my favourite. But I do love this one! It has to be the one I wear as a special fragrance as it has such a gorgeous scent I want it to last forever. I love oranges so every time I spray this I fall in love every time.

Chanel No5 Paris – Feel Unique. This again has a floral scent and it is such a classic. I mean you cannot go wrong with a bit of Chanel. I mean every girl has to own a Chanel perfume right? It’s quite a big perfume so again I like to wear this occasionally not as an everyday spray.

Vera Wang Lovestruck Floral Rush – Superdrug. This has such a pink passion scent and I love it. It’s perfect for an everyday spray. I love the fruity scent combined with the pink it adds such a subtle but long-lasting scent. Not to mention how pretty the packaging is and it’s a perfect size for your handbag too!
