I had a 50% code for Birchbox due to being a student from UniDays so decided to re-subscribe to Birchbox for the month as their February box looked fab! If you don't know what Birchbox is, it is a monthly beauty subscription box where you receive 5/6 samples/full size products. It's a fun way to discover new products without paying the full price, try before you buy! This was the box this month and what was inside.

Inside my box I received a full size Spectrum Tapered Finishing brush, the Doux Me Comforting Scrub Mask, the Loc Shadow Stick in I think shade champagne, Number 4 Lumiere d'Hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect and the Cochine body lotion. I loved all of these products and thought that they were superb! I particularly love the Spectrum brush and will definitely be investing in the others that are available. The scrub mask lived up to its name and was definitely comforting and I've been wearing the bobble ever since I opened the box!

I would definitely reccommend signing up to Birchbox, and you can sign up at, and if you're a member of UniDays you can get 50% of your first box!

Meadowhall Haul

So last Friday I went to Meadowhall, which is in Sheffield, as a late celebration for my sister's birthday. I saved some of my Christmas money so I could treat myself when we went. 

Because I don't live near a Mac counter I always try and make sure to visit it when I go to Meadowhall! I picked up a bronzer which was £24.00, it doesn't look as orange as it does on the picture in real, I promise.

I really wanted a diary for this year to jot down my daily thoughts and tasks that I need to do and I found this one in Paperchase. It had 20% of which made it around £8.50.

Next, I went to Superdrug. I really wanted a new drugstore foundation so decided to try the Rimmel red topped one, there was a deal on Rimmel which was buy one product get the next half price so I also decided to try the Rimmel gel liner as I already have the Mac fluidline but want a cheaper alternative. I also bought my favourite conditioner and some Blistex repair cream as the Winter hates my lips.

I next went to New Look, I really wanted a new handbag and spotted this one so took the plunge and bought it! They also had an offer where it was 20% of jeans so I felt compelled to buy a pair. I also bought this long sleeved top for the coming Spring months.

And finally I visited Boots. I purchased a new hairbrush to blow dry my hair, my favourite shampoo which is the Bleach London Silver Shampoo because I have highlights which this helps maintain and I was recommended by a MUA to buy the Boots time delay cream. I've never really thought about anti-ageing creams with only being 19 but the best thing is to start young so I have!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, I will be doing some more in-depth reviews of the products that I bought. Feel free to leave any comments :)

New Favourite Brand Alert

I was lucky enough to be sent some PR samples from Seventeen last week, and felt the need to rave about these to all of you lovely lot! I was kindly sent the Long Lash mascara, Let's Face It palette and the Easy on the Eye palette.

The packaging of the products is beautiful, I love collecting the boxes of products as I am a self confessed hoarder! This is not helping my addiction Seventeen. The quality of the products surpasses the packaging however.

Seventeen Long Lash: I really loved using this mascara and would definitely re-purchase! It has a thing brush which means it is really easy to get to each individual lash and it doesn't clump which is always a bonus!

Seventeen Let's Face It: This is described as the 'complexion perfection selection' and I 100% agree. It features a pink and yellow toned concealer, but also a setting powder and a rosy pink blush. The concealers are great for colour correction, and I'm loving the rosy pink blush. It is perfect for the paler skinned peoples of the world.

And finally my favourite of the products, the Easy on the Eye palette: I love this palette! It features 8 matte, shimmer and pearl powders, 3 metallic creams and even an eye primer. The shadows are super pigmented and it has become my go to palette for a lovely pink rose gold eye look. It even comes with a how to guide for smoky eye and to top it all of a voucher for £2 of the Seventeen super lash mascara.

All of these products can be found on the Boots website or if you click their names I have linked you directly to the specific product! Have you tried Seventeen products? Feel free to leave any comments below.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Review

Helloooo my lovelies! I apologise sincerely for the lack of posts recently however I promise that I am now back on track with my posting! Blame this on a lack of access to my laptop and too much travelling. Today, I will be reviewing the beautiful product that is the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish cleanser. This has been a skincare favourite of mine for some time now, I was first introduced to it by my Mum and Nanna and have since loved the product. I was sent a sample size of it in a Birchbox last year and thought I'd give it a go again! 

The process contains two parts. Liz Earle describes this as

'Phase one is the cleansing. Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make up, even stubborn mascara.

Phase two is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.'

This is such a simple process and quick for someone that can be lazy with skincare like me! I usually do this process on an evening and have found that it even removes my stubborn eye makeup which is a massive bonus! I love this product, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and makes my skin feel beautifully cleansed. Overall, I would highly recommend this to any person of any age!
Thankyou for reading! Have you tried any Liz Earle products?

This post is slightly late and a bit different to what I normally write but I really wanted to write a post about this so here we go! So, I returned to university on the 31st January to start my next semester. I really struggle going back to uni and find it so difficult living away from home so I try and make going back as nice as it can possibly be by buying nice things to make my time there as good as it can be.

This was actually a Christmas present from my Nanna and Grandad. I absolutely love Yankee Candles and think they make a room so much more homely and give a great ambiance. I haven't tried the Black Cherry one just yet but love the smell. I always have a Yankee Candle in my room, and have nearly used up all of the Season of Peace one. 

I bought these notebooks from Wilkinsons, as I needed 3 new ones as I do 3 different modules per semester. I love the designs of these and they weren't very costly as some similar journal style notebooks can be. They were from the Botanica range which can be found HERE!


I obviously had to take my bag of goodies back with me! I filled my Soap and Glory toiletries bag that I bought before Christmas with all my new toiletries from Christmas. I'm pretty much set for the rest of the year now.

And finally, it wouldn't be uni unless I had to buy a ton of new books that I have to read. I study English Literature so have to read a lot of books each semester.

Hope you enjoyed this post, has anyone else just gone back to uni? Feel free to leave any comments.
