Good Things Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser - Review

Hello everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing the Good Things Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser 100ml*.

I have heard many mixed views about this product but in my opinion I honestly don't have a bad word to say about it!
It retails at £7.99 which I think is a reasonable price for the quality that you are getting and it is very easily accessible too! It can be purchased from Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets such as Sainsbury's and Tesco.

As well as being a moisturiser this product can also be used as a makeup primer too which I like. As I have quite oily skin I don't like to use too many products on my face before applying my foundation as I feel like too many products clog up my pores! 
This is a quick and easy step which leaves my face moisturised giving me a perfect base for my foundation. It feels light on my skin and doesn't leave a greasy residue. It also smells gorgeous!

Beauty Boosting Superfruit Ingredients:
  • Blackcurrant - This is a great source of vitamin C and is known for its anti-inflammatory qualities.
  • Goji Berry - This too has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to keep skin energised.

Free from:
  • Parabens
  • Mineral oils, 
  • Sodium Laureth Sulphate
  • Animal ingredients
 Meaning it's vegan and vegetarian friendly too!

*Disclaimer PR samples - My opinions are still 100% honest.
Have you tried any of the Good Things range?

Holiday & new belly bar!

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to update you and let you know that I go on holiday to Turkey tomorrow with my boyfriend so if I seem to disappear from the blogging world that's why! I am going away for 10 days and I am not sure how often I will be able to get on here so I will reply to all of your comments as soon as I can!

I'm currently packing now and it's taking me forever! I've spent the whole morning exfoliating and prepping my skin for a nice tan! I've also painted my nails on my hands and toes! They look so pretty!

Last week I ordered a new belly bar through a shop on Amazon called it's so cute and only cost £6.95!

I love the little bag it came in and I am very excited to wear this on holiday!

L'Oreal EverStrong - Fragile/Brittle Hair

Hello everyone,

Today I'm going to talk about the L'Oreal EverStrong hair products for fragile and brittle hair. I fell in love with these products at the end of last month and thought I would share it with you today.

I started to noticed that my hair was feeling much drier throughout the past few months as I had been using quite a lot of heat stylers on my hair. 
I decided to get myself some new hair care products as I don't feel I look after me hair as well as I should do sometimes. I bought the L'Oreal EverStrong Shampoo and Intensive Mask. Most of the time I prefer to use treatment masks instead of conditioner as I only wash my hair 3 times a week so I feel a deep conditioning treatment is what my hair needs the most.

As well as using these products, I have waved goodbye to my hair straighteners and said hello to my natural curly locks! I feel this has made such a difference to the condition of my hair and it seems to have grown quite abit too!


What L'Oreal say:
"EverSleek Reinforcing System: Non-sulphate cleansing for over-processed, fragile hair. Infused with botanical rosemary and juniper oils."  

Shampoo (£5.99):
"Specifically designed for fragile and brittle hair, EverStrong Reinforcing & Vitality is a Reinforcing System that combines non-sulphate cleansing and conditioning care. The formulae are enriched with botanical rosemary and juniper oils. Hair looks shinier, smoother and protected." 

Intensive mask (£6.99):
"Specifically designed for fragile and brittle hair, the EverStrong Nourishing Intense Mask combines reinforcing care with an indulgent conditioning treatment. The formula is enriched with botanical rosemary and mint oils. Hair looks shinier, smoother and protected."

What I think:
I love these products, they really are amazing and work very well on my hair.
After just a few washes I notices my hair was feeling much softer with less breakage!
I love the fact they contain no sulphates it makes the product even more appealing!

Have you tried the L'Oreal EverStrong products yet?

Gifts from Camden Market

Hello everyone,

This post is quite different to my usual posts but today I thought I would share with you two cute gifts from Camden Market!

My boyfriend recently went to London and came back with this pocket watch necklace and a chopstick rest.
I am absolutely obsessed with butterflies and pocket watches and I use chopsticks all the time, so I was really excited when I received these two items! I just love them!
