BEAUTY HAUL

Good evening beautiful souls,

Firstly Happy Easter!!! I hope you’ve had a fabulous day!! I’ve been busy at work but am now going to a friend’s for dinner and a couple of episodes of Vikings!!

Anyway back to my post, I have recently purchased some new beauty bits & bobs and thought I would share what I got with you:

Firstly I made a stop in the Body Shop to buy some more moisture foundation with an spf of 15. They didn’t have my usual shade in stock, but the shade darker was on sale so I just went for it hoping it wasn’t too dark and that with sunnier days to come my skin would start tanning a little a day match the foundation well. I’ve yet to try a full face if it.

I also spotted this cute Metal Lip Liquid in the Body Shop and thought I’d give it a whirl. I love it! The application is a bit gloopy but it has a beautiful rosy shimmer!

Next I also bought the light Collection powder (which I stupidly dropped just before taking the photo and of course it smashed) because I’d ran out. I usually always wear powder just to set my foundation a little.

The Rimmel London mascara I actually picked up in Poundland, it’s a dark green which I loved the idea off, but actually it’s so dark it just looks black really which is a shame, I had hoped for a bit more of a green.

Last but not least I got these cute soft pink fake nails in Savers for whenever I next have a night out (probably not any time soon aha) or a lovely day out somewhere. Sadly I can’t wear fake nails or nail varnish to work as I work with food, so I only get to have pretty nails on special occasions.

Well that’s my mini haul done. Have any of you lovelies tried any of these products? I’d love to know.

Also I hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend!

MY PARENTS ARE THE CUTEST

Good evening beautiful souls,

I’m spending this evening at my parents and because I won’t see my mum on Easter Sunday she prepared this cute Easter gift bag for me from her and dad.

As I’m vegan and you know too much chocolate is never good for you haha she got me some non typical Easter treats.

There were some Maui&Sons coconut chips in the goodie bag (which I’ve always fancied buying but haven’t yet), some new Stabilo point pens (yay), a cute forever against animal testing olive soap bar in the shape of a rabbit ❤ from The Body Shop and lastly a beautiful selection of loose leaf artisan teas with intriguing flavour profiles that I can’t wait to try!

I wasn’t expecting my parents to get me an Easter egg or anything so to get these cute little treats was just lovely!!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend ahead of you! I’ll be working aha! Happy Easter weekend lovelies!

MY CURRENT FAVE GO TO MAKEUP LOOK

Good evening beautiful souls,

I’ve had a make up post in the planning for weeks and so I’m excited to finally share it with you. I think this may even be a first on my blog! So please let me know if you’d like more makeup style posts in future.

Note : not all products used are vegan, although I have stopped buying non vegan makeup products now, I am not just going to waste all the makeup I already own by throwing them away because they are not vegan.

I love this look because it has a bit of sparkle perfect for a night out but is also still natural enough for a fresh everyday work look.

Products used for this look:

NYX Pore Filler Primer – Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (fair 1) – The Body Shop Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation (Railay Beach 014) – Collection Eye Brow Kit – Sleek i-Divine Vintage Romance eyeshadow palette – Collection Glam Crystals Gel Liner (Funk 3) – The Body Shop Smokey Black Eye Definer – Natural Collection Lash Build Mascara (Black) – Collection Lip Liner (10 Cholcolate) – Collection Lasting Colour Lipstick (Vintage Rose 13)
