Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Mask – Review!

Hii guysss – feels like I haven’t done a blog post in a little whilee so I’m back & better (I hope so anyway!). So as if the title isn’t a huge giveaway, I will be reviewing the body shop Himalayan charcoal mask!

I’ve been eyeing this mask for a while but I never purchased it because I just had second thoughts on whether it would be worth the price & so on – it’s not too pricey but it isn’t exactly cheap at £16!

Is it worth the price? In short.. yes, it is.

So the mask is a green/grey colour and it’s not very thick but has bits of charcoal in it which obviously makes it a little thick in texture but it spreads really evenly on the skin! One of the first things I noticed with this mask is the SMELL! It’s not particularly an unpleasant smell, I don’t even know how to explain it but it does have a strong smell. You’ll either LOVE it or HATE it.

One of the first things I’ve noticed about this mask is how FRESHHH my face looks and feels immediately after applying it. It honestly feels so nice and clean – one of the BEST feelings ever because it really feels like it’s doing its job! I’ve used this quite a bit now and I have realised it leaves my skin looking brighter than usual & after a few uses I’ve realised a reduction in blackheads on my nose and also I had a few spots/scars on my forehead which have started to fade – I’m guessing this is somewhat due to this mask, because I have retained my usual skin routine.

If you are willing to spend £16 then definitely purchase this mask! It’s soo worth it – it lasts realllyy long & you will see results soon enough if you’re consistent! I can’t wait to try the body shop’s other masks.

If you’ve tried it, comment below your thoughts & if you haven’t let me know if you’ll be purchasing it! Leave a like & follow for more posts! Thanks for readings guyss take care!<3

Makeup Haul/Review + First Impressions! | HudaBeauty, TheBalm & More!

Hiii guyss – this is one of my first ever makeup haul/review posts (i think!:O). Recently I purchased quite a few makeup items that I’ve NEVER tried before & I wanted to do a mini review on each of the items for you guys 🙂

First item I purchased was the Ardell Black Wispie Lashes:

ardellwispies

I have NEVER EVER worn false lashes in my lifeee (because honestly, I have no idea how to put them on despite watching 100’s of youtube tutorials!) They’re soooo pretty and look so good BUT it was soo tricky getting them to stick on and the duo glue that you get with it can be a bit messy too. I LOVED them but would probably not recommend these if you’re a beginner (I feel like the Eyelure ones are more beginner friendly tbh).

The next thing I purchased are these Huda Beauty Mini Liquid Mattes:

hbpink

I got the ‘Pink’ set which consists of 3 matte shades and 1 is more of  a metallic/sparkly shade. OMGG, they are SO SO SO beautiful. They are so worth the price; I promise you’ll love them! They dry on your lips pretty quickly but still retain your lips moisture and doesn’t completely dry them out/ give you that weird feeling. They also last realllyyy long, I wore one of the shades the other day for about 6-7 hours and only had to reapply a little bit in the centre. They are now my FAVE liquid lipsticks and I will definitely be purchasing the other sets.

I also purchased the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette:

hbeye

I have not tried the palette out yet because it honestly looks wayy too stunning to use:( but I’m super excited to use it and the colours are SO gorgeous. (Look out for a tutorial soon!)

The next thing I purchased was a BEAUTY BLENDER:

beautyb;

OKOK, I know I’m SUPERRRR late with this, but it was a bit of a splurge for me, as I honestly thought there wasn’t much point of me purchasing one because I have been using the Real Techniques Sponge for the longest time ever but girllllll, was i wrong?! I now understand why everyone says NOTHING will ever compare to the original beauty blender. It honestly made my makeup application look 10x better and was super easy to blend! I would definitely recommend this; a makeup staple!

I also purchased my favourite Sleek Face/Contour Kit:

sleek

This is my 2nd or 3rd repurchase of this contour kit and I am in LOVEEEE. This is the shade ‘medium’. I alwaysss use up the contour shade, it’s my absolute fave. The highlighter is also nice if you want a subtle sheen, but I don’t reach for it as much. It’s also very reasonably priced and a great product especially if you’re starting out with makeup (it was my FIRST ever contour palette).

My next purchase was the NYX Dewy Setting Spray:

nyxspray

I believe this gem in a bottle only cost me £7! (Absolute bargain!). I use this on a day to day basis, instead of my Urban Decay one. It’s absolutely AMAZING and gives your skin a healthy, refreshing glow and literally keeps your makeup looking good ALL DAYYY! Easily one of my holy grail products.

The LAST thing I purchased is one of my FAV purchases:

marylou

The MaryLou Highlighter is RAVEDDD about on youtube/instagram because of it’s price (retails around £20). It’s sooo beautiful. I got sooo many compliments when wearing this & let’s be realll, compliments regarding your highlighter, are the BEST compliments. This initially gives your face a really nice subtle glow, but it’s easily buildable if you want that BLINDING GLOW. (Especially when using with a damp brush!) 

 

That’s all for now guysss, hope you enjoyed this blog post. Let me know your thoughts on any of the items below & make sure to like/follow for more!<3

Anne’s Oils Review (Hair)

Hiii guyss. Todays post is going to be a little bit different than my usual clothing/shopping hauls. I am doing my first EVER hair post! (I think!)

I have been seeing these oils (“annes oils”) all over instagram and people spoke so highly of them so I had to try them out for myself!

Here’s a little look at what they look like:20170607_17521820170607_175245

First thing is PRICE. They are rather pricey; they cost me around £15 a bottle if I remember correctly.

They have a day oil and night oil (as the names suggest, one is for day use and one for night). I purchased both as I wanted to see how different/similar they are.

Lets begin with the day oil:

20170607_180409

The day oil claims to reduce frizz and add shine which it does a brilliant job at! It does not 100% get rid of frizz but there is a significant difference and it does add a beautiful (non-greasy looking) shine to your hair.

The night oil:

20170607_180430

I have used the night oil wayyy more than the day oil. I usually apply 2 to 3 pumps of this before sleeping and wash the next morning. It leave my hair feeling and looking so soft!

The oils claim to be odourless however I am not sure I agree with that. They do not have a bad or even a strong odour but they definitely do have an odour. (It isnt anything unbearable; it smells fine and is a faint smell!)

They have a thin/runny consistency which I really like and they do not leave your hair looking or feeling greasy, which is SO important to me!

Hair loss: These oils claim to reduce hair loss and honestly speaking I can say that this claim is true! It is not a miracle worker, I have always had a lot of hair fallout but since using this it has definitely reduced and now I don’t experience as much hair falling out as I did before.

I have been using these oils since September last year, it has almost been 9 months and I still have not finished the bottles! (I only use them once a week though, bear this in mind.)

They definitely leave your hair feeling and looking a lot softer and healthier and have reduced hair fallout for me. I would recommend these oils; they are not like any of the other oils I have tried and believe me I have tried a lot!


That is all for now guys; hope you enjoyed my mini review and I will definitely update you guys once I have completely finished both bottles.

Mini Collective Clothing Haul | H&M, Missguided, New Look & ASOS!

Hey guyssss – I am back with ANOTHER mini haul (wooooooo!). I LOVE shopping, and every time there’s a sale going on, I just can’t resist (not helping my bank balance AT ALL!) 

Let’s beginnn..

The first online store I shopped from was Missguided. Missguided currently have 30% off, so I would definitely head on over to their site right now! I LOVE clothing from missguided, although sometimes the quality can be a bit hit or miss but I am really happy with everything I ordered from there.

The first thing I purchased were these Vice Lace Up Skinny Jeans:

vicelaceupvicelaceup2

These cost £30 and are a beautiful camel colour. However, they are slightly darker than this in real life. I ordered these in a size 6. I’m usually a size 8 but from the reviews, everyone recommended going a size down and I’m so glad I did because they fit PERFECTLY! They are honestly super figure flattering (you can tighten/loosen the area around the waist) I would definitely recommend them! They also come in a range of different colours: grey, navy & black. 

To purchases these: CLICK ON ME!

The next store I purchased from was H&M. I have recently been LOVING a few bits from H&M (I purchased some beautiful inexpensive jeans from there in my last haul post). This time I ordered this Black Lace Up Top:

blacklacetop

I ordered this in a size S. I’d say H&M sizing is pretty accurate! I LOVE this top, I already have the red and white one in this style, so I had to get my hands on the black one since they finally had my size in stock! This top cost me £12.99, which is a bargain considering how much use I will get out of it!

To buy this top: CLICK ON ME!

The next store I ordered from was New Look. I think what I ordered from New Look were definitely my personal FAVOURITE purchases.

The first thing I ordered was this Pink Long Sleeve Choker Neck Top:

chokertop

I’m a bit late with the whole choker neck trend but this was (and still is) on sale for £5 so I had to buy it! It’s soo much prettier in real life and fits me perfectly (I got my normal size – 8). It also comes in white and the white one is also £5 atm. 

To buy : CLICK ON ME!

The next thing I purchased was this Pink lace bodycon dress:

evedin

I purchased this in a size 8 and it cost me £27.99, which I think is pretty cheap for a dress so nice! It’s one of the MOST flattering dresses I own and the lace detail is so pretty (not see through at all). I just think it would be really nice to wear to an evening dinner which is why I got it! 🙂

The final thing is MY BIRTHDAY DRESS!!

I purchased this from ASOS – and it was definitely more of a splurge (£150), but it is honestly so so so beautiful in real life – it has little sequin/pearls on it and it’s just so STUNNING! I can not wait to wear it. I ordered this in a size 6 and I really like how it fits!:)

London Restaurant Review (South African – Halal) !

Hiii guys! Hope you are all doing well 🙂 As you can tell from the title – this will be a review (with food pics obviously) of a South African restaurant I went to about a week ago (about a week agooo ;)). DISCLAIMER – IT WAS SOOO GOOD OMG. 

Haha, okay sooo first things first the restaurant is called ‘Jungle Braai’ and they currently have 2 branches in London as of now, one is in Bricklane and the other is in Walthamstow. 

Here’s what we ordered:

jb1

It tasted even better than it looks!

Soo we ordered a chicken steak meal, a quarter chicken meal and the ‘Jungle platter’ which includes: lamb chops, wings, chips and a drink. You guyssss I kid you not it was by far the BEST food I’ve ever tasted. I can NOT wait to go again! The portion sizes are pretty big and they definitely fill you up. The sauce they use is SOO BOMB – I’ve honestly never tasted ANYTHING like it – it’s so unique but it’s so good! Honestly, all of the food was literally cooked to perfection. 

jb2

close up of my chicken steak meal!

Price: We went to eat at lunchtime so they had a “lunchtime menu”, where you get their food for almost half off (bargain!) – although I’d definitely pay the full price too because it’s not even expensive. All together, ALL 3 meals came up to around £20! :O You definitely get WAYY more than you pay for – it’s so worth it!

Jungle Braai also have a website so make sure you guys check it out!  Click on me to launch website!

That’s all for now guys ; hope you enjoyed reading and make sure to like/comment/follow! ❤

LOREAL GLOW FACE MASK – REVIEW

Hii everybodyyyy! I am back with another review for you guysss. Some of you may remember I did a review on the Loreal Detox Clay Mask (if you haven’t read it yet, you should check it out!) I LOVED it so muchh I thought I would give the Glow one a try!

20170414_19391820170414_193948

It claims to brighten and exfloiate your skin and I kid you not, it is absolutely AMAZING at doing just that! You just leave it on for 5_10 minutes and it works like absolute magic – it’s improved my skin sooo much.

20170414_194113

 I have used so much of it already (it lasts ages tho) but as you can hopefully tell from the pic, it has little exfoliating bits/beads (i dont know what to call it) so it does have quite a rough texture when you put it onto your skin however it works SO well and gives you an INSTANT glow!!

You can purchase this from Boots or Superdrug for £6! It’s honestly worth sooo much more than the money you pay and I promise you, you will LOVE it!!

Thanks for reading≤3 be sure to like, comment and follow 🙂

Mini Collective Haul | Nike, JD, New Look, H&M

Hi guysss! I feel like I have not done a haul in a little while, but I have bought a few things lately and thought I’d upload a little collective haul (as you can tell from the title.)

So let’s begin..

The first thing I boought are the famous nike air max 90’s in black. I LOVE these trainers and they’re honestly such a staple. I feel like I can wear them with literally anything! (I saved money by getting them in the Junior section at JD for £65 – Who else does this 😉 ???)

NIKNIKE

The next thing I bought were these blue high waisted ankle jeans from H&M. I’ve actually NEVER bought jeans from H&M but I am surprised at how GOOD they fit me! I’m definitely going to be buying a few more pairs from there in the future! I can’t remember how much they cost but I think they were around £25 which is really good for jeans!JEAjeannjeaa

The final thing I brought was a cropped grey hoodie from new look. I really LOVE cropped jumpers/sweaters so I just could not resist when I saw that it was on SALE for £7 – absolute bargainnn!

PRIMARK HAUL!

Hey guys! I went into Primark the other day to pick up a few things I needed and I have got to say, Primark are deffo getting better and better! They had so many nice things, I was shocked, as it’s quite rare I find things I like in Primark.  Sooo let’s just get into the haul..

The first thing I picked up was this STUNNING choker:

cho

I for one do not wear chokers, but when I saw this I just could NOT resist! It has little diamonds and it’s so glam and shiny, how could i say no for only £2.50?! It looks as though it cost WAYYY more! And unlike most chokers, it does not fit tight on your neck, it drops down a little on your neck, so it looks super classy! I LOVE it so much, I received so many compliments on it when I first wore it and everyone was shocked it was from primark haha. I don’t think I’m ever going to stop wear it!
The next thing I picked up is this twin pack of dainty bracelets:

brac

So as you guys can see, there’s an evil eye bracelet and a hamsa hand one. I’ve been DYING to get my hands on some and when I saw these in primark for £2 I was like YESSSSSS! I love them so much, they’re super cute but they are quite big which is unfortunate, however I’ve managed to make them smaller 😀
The next thing I bought was this beautiful pink matte nail varnish:

nv

I always buy nail varnishes from primark because they’re super cheap and look so goood, they don’t take AGES to dry either and I LOVE that the applicator is a little thicker and covers more of the nail, which speeds up the applying process. 
The next things I bought were these plain vest tops because I just really needed a plain black and white cami top to wear under super see through blouses!
These cost me £1.80 each and they literally have them in every single colour in primark!
I also brought this high neck long sleeved top:

gre

I am aware it looks grey in the pic, but in real life it is actually more of a teal colour. This was half price and cost me £2 so I was like why notttt?!
The FINAL thing I brought was this super pretty pink sheer bralette that I have seen ALL OVER instagram:

bral

HOW PRETTY?!<3_

That’s all for now guysss! Thank you so much for reading

Primark Haul 

Hey guys! It’s been ages since I’ve posted a blogpost, been busy busy unfortunately. Anyways, I needed a few bits and bobs so I thought I’d pop into Primark. I thought I’d share with you guys my purchases.


With wedding season literally here, I was in desperate need for a clutch bag. I was so happy to come across this one as it is very simple and is black which means that it will suit any outfit! 

I’ve heard many good reviews about primark mascaras so I thought I’d buy one. I tried it out as soon as I got home and I must say I was very impressed, it literally does do what it says!

Nude lips are very in this year so when I spotted this lipstick colour I was over the moon haha! I tried the tester on my hand and I must say I was shocked at how creamy the texture was which is amazing as it makes it more easier to apply.

You can never go wrong with a cheap plain hoodie, need I say more?!

Hope you girlies enjoyed this post, give it a thumbs up if you did! ❤

My recent purchases (beauty & accessories)

Hey girlies! Hope you’re all well. I haven’t had much time recently to do a big shop however, I’ve been buying bits and bobs here and there so I thought I’d share with you guys my recent purchases. 

So I don’t know about you girls but I love my accessories to look very minimal so when I came across this watch I was obsessed as it looks very simple and would go with any outfit. Not to mention it’s as cheap as chips, for £4.89 this stunning watch is a bargain!

Click here to buy this watch.





So I’ve got a lot of black marks on my face and I’ve literally tried everything to get rid of them however, nothing seems to work. That’s until I came across bio oil, the results do take long to see however the wait is worth it, my black marks are slowly but surely getting lighter! Every time I put this oil on my face, my face feels cleaner and refreshed. I brought the 60 ml one in which I’ve realised does run out really quickly which is a downer however, it’s still worth it!

Hope you girlies enjoyed reading this post, until next time take care! ❤
