A few weeks ago, I received the “Babe Power Travel Set” (the Missguided perfume) to review – I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was to receive this!

Anyway, I believe this was destined to happen.. In August 2017, I was out on the hunt for my birthday shoes with my boyfriend and I spotted the Missguided perfume from a mile away. I thought the design of the perfume was really unique and pretty. Something I had never seen before and of course, like most girls, I love trying new perfumes and testing the smells, so of course, I had to have a spray.

When I was asked to review this perfume, as you can imagine, I couldn’t contain my excitement – first of all, I have been asked to write a blog post for a MISSGUIDED(!!! my favs) perfume and secondly, a perfume that I know for a fact, I already love the smell of!

I love a sweet smelling perfume and would certainly not go for anything other than this! Now, the smell of this perfume is just gorgeous, so sweet and fresh. It is definitely a real girly smell!

The packaging is what makes this perfume so unique and different to every other bottle of perfume. I am surprised this design hasn’t been used before. The bottle reminds me of a can of fizzy drink. It is a cute, small sized bottle which would be easy to use whilst on your travels. This is definitely my new favourite perfume and will be coming everywhere with me!

So the perfume I received came in a set of two – this costs only £15 on the Missguided website (cheap as chips!), you can buy this here: www.missguided.com and it would make a perfect gift, I mean who doesn’t love receiving perfume on a special occasion?!

Seriously girls, I wish there was a way of me sending you a bit of this smell through this blog post (I’m sure one day, this will be a thing!!!) but if you are ever near a Missguided store, please go and have a spray(!!!) or, if you fancy taking a risk, purchase this online!!!

I am just in love with my new perfume, so much that I will definitely purchase a new bottle before I run out!!  But seriously girls, if you want to smell like a real life angel, I suggest you get your yourself online and make that purchase! You’ll thank me later!!!

I have had a year full of ups and downs but it’s safe to say, I’ve come out on top. I’ve gained some, I’ve lost some and I have retained some, but as they say, everything happens for a reason and eventually, you’ll see the true colours in some people. I’m happier than ever, surrounded by the best people and the most amazing plans for 2018.

This year has been the BEST for my blogging life. I’ve worked with some amazing brands, attended some amazing events (which you would have seen), I’ve made some of the bestest friends I could possibly wish for (all thanks to blogging and events) and I’ve finally worked out an Insta theme – if you are into blogging, you will understand how important this really is… (hahahaha!!!)

I’ll start with the worst part of my year.. and this was definitely when I lost my beautiful Buffy in September, which broke my heart into 154685+ pieces but I will forever cherish the memories with her.  She has been my rock since I was a little girl.  You may think, I sound slightly crazy (unless you own a dog, because you will completely understand me when I say this) but she was so much more than “just a dog” to me, she was like a sister.  I adored her so much and she honestly had kindest heart.  Every single day I had her in my life, she made me feel so loved.  I love you my Buffy girl – miss you everyday, my little bestie! xxx

I have just received the cutest earrings which I have been itching to share with you all!!!

Nuckre are an up and coming English jewellery company who sell the most unique and unusual earrings.  Nuckre find their inspiration through nature and they donate a portion of every sale to great nature conservation charities both in the UK and abroad – how sweet!

I was lucky enough to receive two of the cutest pairs from the Nuckre website: the Classic Black & Gold and the Urbanite earrings.
(You can shop these by simply clicking on the earring name above).

I am not one for wearing larger earrings, I normally stick to studs and the smaller earrings.  So being approached to review very “out there” earrings, was quite lovely as I always enjoy trying something new and pushing myself out of my comfort zone which is different from the ‘norm‘.

Of course, I was unsure whether I would love them or hate them, being sooo different to anything I have ever worn before!  But luckily enough, I actually love them and it has really opened my eyes to a bigger world of larger earrings!

I love the Classic Black and Gold statement earrings as I can simply style them with any outfit.  I am forever wearing black clothing so these could actually become an everyday essential for me!  The gold makes them stand out that little bit more and give that bold look!

The Urbanite earrings were a total surprise when I opened up my parcel – I was pretty pleased they were another black pair to be honest as I know for a fact, I will be able to get a lot of use out of them.  These earrings are very chic looking and are the perfect essential to complete an outfit.

I am a huge fan of unique items – I really like to be original and have things other people wouldn’t have necessarily seen before, so even though this was completely out of my comfort zone, this was something I really enjoyed reviewing.  I love to be different!  If you are like me and you want to go for something more special and unique, please check out: www.nuckre.com – you will not regret it!

I am so excited to share my new favourite products for a chilled night in… the Kocostar products!!!

I was extremely lucky to receive the chance to review 6 different products from the Kocostar range, I will be telling you all about each product individually and I know you’ve heard it all before but this is certainly one blog post, you cannot afford to miss… especially with Christmas just around the corner!  These are the perfect stocking fillers for your mum, sister/s, nan/s and even your dad!!

Kocostar make easy to use salon quality products to make your skin look and feel young, your hair silky, your feet pretty, your nails sparkly, quickly and affordably!  The instructions for use of these skin care products are stated on the back of each pack.

Long Hair Pack:

First of all, lets talk hair!  I have fairly long hair and I am always struggling to find “the right” treatments for my hair type.  It can get super dry at times, which I absolutely hate!  I have tried everything, including the best serums.

The Long Hair Pack is a nourishing and soothing hair treatment that hydrates and rejuvenates dry damaged hair.  This hair treatment is specifically designed for long (as it states in the title), dehydrated hair and it is quick and easy to use.  You apply the unique hair wrap infused with a nourishing serum to the hair for just 20 minutes and then rinse out with warm water.  You can leave this on for longer than 20 minutes but this all depends on your hair type.  This leaves your hair looking and feeling super shiny, silky and with a super-soft finish.

Foot Moisture Pack and Foot Peeling Pack:

Two different types of foot masks but both are absolutely amazing and leave your feet feeling, amazing!

The Foot Moisture Pack is a simple, yet effective, innovative mask treatment for dry, over-worked feet, it is a moisturising and soothing treatment that helps replenish your feet and dehydrates feet in just 20 minutes.  This mask quickly improves skin hydration and protects them against dehydrated feet.  You should leave this pack on your feet until all of the serum has been absorbed, this will ensure you get the best results.  This pack leaves your feet feeling soft and smooth and glowing with health.

The Foot Peeling Pack is developed to gently lift away dead skin cells, the pack is an innovative and effective way to achieve silky soft and smooth feet.  It is an intense, soothing treatment of botanicals extracts to exfoliate and repair stressed feet while softening and smoothing the skin’s surface for loveable, touchable feet.  The Foot Peeling pack is best to use whilst you are having a chilled night in.  You should leave this pack on for 90 minutes, to ensure you get the best results.  After use, remove the wrap and rinse with warm water.  This pack is targeted to get rid of that dry feet feeling and take away any dead flaky skin and leave your feet feeling soft and smooth and glowing with health.

Camellia Happy Mask:

The Camellia Happy Mask was the first mask I used.  By mixing the rayon with the extracted oil from the seeds of Japanese Red Camellia, this mask has surprisingly long lasting moisture.  Its pale pink colour helps to look unnoticeable and natural when applied on your face.  To get the best result from this face mask, you apply for 20 minutes.  After removing the mask, you should gently massage your skin and allow the excess serum to penetrate the skin.

Slice Mask Sheet – Cucumber:

The Cucumber Slice Mask Sheet delivers high levels of Vitamin C and helps to maintain the moisture level.  Piece by piece application from the film is easy to use and you can apply to your face as well as neck, arms or legs wherever necessary.  This mask works to balance the skin and replenish moisture in the dryer areas of the face.  The cucumber shaped patches are each infused with a vitamin rich elixir that works to nourish and replenish the skin for renewed health and vitality.  Again, you can leave this on the area you have chosen to apply to for 20-30 minutes.  Once you have finished using the slice mask, you remove the pieces and you should gently massage any excess serum into the skin.  This leaves you feeling fresh and leaving your skin feeling soft.  Of course, it smells lush too, as you can guess, just like cucumber lol!!!

Slice Mask Sheet – Watermelon:

The Watermelon Slice Mask Sheet, hydrates skin and helps to refresh the skin.  Piece by piece application from the film is easy to use and can apply to your face as well as neck, arms or legs where it’s necessary.  This is an ultra-hydrating twelve piece mask which is designed for dry, dehydrated skin, the slice mask effectively delivers moisture deep into the skin. With twelve individual patches infused with a rich, hydrating elixir, this unique mask allows you to target specific areas or treat the entire face for a youthful and rejuvenated complexion.  Again, you can leave this on the area you have chosen to apply for 20-30 minutes.  Once you have finished using the slice mask, you remove the pieces and you should gently massage any excess serum into the skin.  The Watermelon Slice Mask Sheet smells amazing and of course, like watermelon (duh)… this is by far my favourite.  The packing is my favourite too, obviously as pink is my favourite colour and it just looks cute and pretty!

Rose Flower Mask Sheet:

Finally, the Rose Flower Mask Sheet is a facial mask that helps support natural surface cell regeneration for smooth and supple skin.  Piece by piece application from the film is easy to use and can apply to your face as well as neck, arms or legs where it’s necessary.  This is a collection uniquely designed and is comprised of twelve individual rose petals in a variety of sizes allowing you to target specific areas with intense nourishment.  Infused with a botanically enriched serum the treatment works effectively to boost cell turnover and skin smoothness for a glowing complexion.  Innovative and effective, the petals can be placed on other areas of the body, too, for head to toe beautification.  Once again, you can leave this on the area you have chosen to apply to for 20-30 minutes.  Once you have finished using this mask, you remove the pieces and you should gently massage any excess serum into the skin.  I feel this would make such a cute present for a Christmas Eve box or a gift bag as it is such a cute package and looks very classy.

You can shop for these products online at: Kocostar.com or if you are based in the UK you can shop for these on Beauty Bay, Asos or Urban Outfitters and also online at Amazon, Birchbox, Joyus, Memebox, Pop Sugar or Sokoglam.

I know, my blog also has a large following in the USA, so for you lovely Americans, you can shop for these at Anthropologie, Forever 21, Nordstrom, Ricky’s NYC, Ulta Beauty, Urban Outfitters, American Eagles Outfitters, Saks Fifth Avenue and Soft Surroundings!

These masks are also sold in Sephora in Australia – amazing, huh?!

I absolutely loved reviewing these Kocostar products and these products will definitely be my ‘go to’ products for a chilled night for a long, long time!!!

How freaking cute are my specs?!

I received a message a little while ago from the Glasseshop.com.  I was asked to review some glasses – this was a very different request for me but I took the opportunity as so many people wear glasses nowadays, so what better way to share my glasses experience with you all?

I wear glasses myself (I don’t need them all the time) but I absolutely love the way glasses have become a fashion statement now!

It used to be seen as “uncool” to wear glasses but it certainly “cool” to wear them now.. and it has actually become a trend?!  Who would have thought all those years ago when I was told I had to wear glasses, that it would actually be trendy to add a pair of specs to your outfit?!  Certainly not me!

I had a browse at all the different types of glasses that GlassesShop.com sell and I found my favourites, the Cary Aviator – Gunmetal!  I LOVE these glasses at the moment, even my little sister (Amelie, for those of you that know her), had a pair before me – but I guess, she is a total “fashionista” so it doesn’t surprise me!!!  Actually, if you watched my 21st Birthday Vlog, you would have seen me wearing Amelie’s!!!

All the trendy and stylish, celebs and bloggers are wearing them… so as soon as I could get my hands on a pair, I took up the opportunity!

The frames are super cute, they are bold and a silver colour.  The quality is fabulous and even better than expected!  You can get the same glasses as me by going to the GlassesShop.com website!  GlassesShop.com have also been kind enough to provide me with a 50% off code (on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses [sale frames excluded]) for my lovely readers which is GSHOT50!  If you need any prescription glasses or just some glasses frames, make sure you use this code for glasses online!

I chose this colour for my glasses because sliver goes with anything and everything!  You can literally add them to any outfit you like! These specs have literally become one of my essentials now!

Big thanks to GlassesShop.com for sending me these cute and chic specs!!!
