Goodbye tired eyes

Lately I have been super busy and have been feeling soo tired, and my eyes have definitely made that obvious! However, for the last week or so I have been using the Liz Earle - Eyebright soothing eye lotion. I have always suffered with quite bad dark circles and use a hell of a lot of concealer to try and cover these, but since I have been using Eyebright I have noticed a massive improvement on the puffiness and darkness around my eyes. I put a bit onto a cotton pad and sweep over my eyes after I have cleansed in the evening and then again when I wake up, and it leaves my eyes feeling instantly refreshed! It's also perfect for removing any left over bits of eye make up that always seems to appear in the morning.. The smell is really natural (can't put my finger on what the smell is!) it just smells really fresh and clean, which is like many other Liz Earle products. It's made me feel so much more awake in the mornings and almost makes my eyes seem whiter, which is definitely needed with how tired I have been at the moment! I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from puffy, tired or red eyes, especially for only £10.75 for 150ml. It comes with a screw cap as well which is perfect if you are clumsy like me and have a tendency to knock things over and waste them!

What are your favourite eye care products? Have you tried this before?

Percy & Reed: Wonder Balm

I love trying new hair products as I have quite 'hard to manage' hair. My hair is naturally really curly, but you always want what you don't have, so of course I straighten the life out of it every morning! This means that my hair normally feels quite coarse and dry (and very frizzy). Lately I have been using the Percy & Reed Wonder Balm which comes free with Elle magazine this month, RRP is £18 so grabbing it for £4 is an absolute steal! At first I wasn't 100% sure what it was meant to do or what I was meant to do with it, but I apply a small amount to towel dried hair and then again to dry hair after it has been straightened. I didn't particularly think that it made my hair any softer, but it definitely helped tame my frizz & keep my hair in place, especially once you've added it to dry hair. It helps keep all fly away hairs in place and even managed to avoid frizzing in the wind. Overall, I really like this & am happy that I came across it, will be purchasing another one before the end of the month! Thanks Elle!

Have you tried this product? What did you think of it?



I haven't done a face of the day for ageees, so thought I would give you all another one! My 'everyday' make up routine changes all the time, I always find new things that I add into what I use every day. These products are all ones that I use on a regular basis and am loving! I'm always chopping and changing my foundation and lately have started using the 'Rimmel Wake Me Up' and love it! I know so many people rave about it, but it is so nice, gives you a lovely fresh feeling face and not cakey at all!

Soap & Glory 'Bright Here, Bright Now', Benefit 'Boi-ing', Rimmel 'Wake Me Up' in Ivory, Soap & Glory 'One Heck Of A Blot', Bourjois 'Delice de Poudre' & MUA Blusher in 'Bubble Gum'.

Rimmel 'Exaggerate Eye Liner' in Black, Naked Basics 'Naked 2' & 'Venus' (for highlights), Benefit 'They're Real' mascara (which I forgot to add in the picture, oops!) & Rimmel 'Eyebrow Pencil' in dark brown.

Lush lip scrub (bubblegum) to prep! Mac Cremesheen 'Night To Remember'.

 Let me know if you have tried any of these products & what you think of them!

Spring/Summer Sandal Wish List

I'm kind of on a 'no spend' month as I have so many things to pay for this month and sadly can't afford to go out on loads of shopping trips (as much as I would love to.) However, this hasn't stopped me from doing a bit of window shopping and looking at some of the things that I will be buying once the month has come to an end! Now that the weather is getting warmer, I thought that I really must invest in some more 'summery' shoes, and so behold - my sandal/shoe wish list! They're all so beautiful!

River Island
(L-R) White Patent T-Bar Cut Out shoes, White Block Heel Cleated Sole sandals, Black Patent T-Bar Cut Out shoes, Light Pink Patent T-Bar Cut Out shoes, White Block Heel Gladiator sandals.

New Look
(L-R) White Caged Chunky Block Heel sandals, Pink Block Heel Jelly sandals, Monochrome Caged Chunky Block Heel sandals, Black Chunky Cleated Sole Block Heel sandals, Black Chunky Caged sandals.

(L-R) Fernado Chunky sandals, Nation Two Part Cleat sandals, Nina Jelly sandals, Georgy Geek shoes, #Action 2-Part Cleated sandals.

I hope this has inspired you to make your feet look pretty this season! (Most of them would also look cute with a pair of frilly socks for when the weather is colder!) Also, I would like to apologize for slightly slacking on the blogging part! I've been suuuuper busy this week this uni things, but will get back to putting 'normal' posts up again as soon as poss!

Have you got your eyes on any of these lovely shoes?

REVIEW: Lancome Bi-Facil Make up Remover

Taking my make up off was never something that I used to put much thought into. I would always just grab a make up wipe and be done with it, but lately I have been experimenting with loads of different products to take my make up off with, having quite sensitive eyes and skin I have to be careful what I use as quite a lot of products seem to irritate me. The Lancome Bi-Facil eye make up remover is now a must have. It has an oil and water formula which separates in the bottle so you give it a little shake before using but doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. With quite a lot of make up removers you tend to have to use a lot of it to get your make up to budge, but with this one the tiniest amount is needed on a cotton pad and you simply sweep it over your eyes and your mascara/eyeliner vanishes, without any of this rubbing business! It also doesn't irritate my eyes or skin, so it is perfect for me and a definite win! It is quite pricey at £21 but it will last a very long time as so little is needed, so it is definitely worth the investment. I'm also loving the Nivea Double Effect eye make up remover as well, which is much the same as this one but for a fraction of the price! (It's usually on offer for around £1.50 - bargain!) I would recommend either of these to anyone, especially those this sensitive skin and eyes, as I know it can be hard to find eye make up removes that don't sting!

Which make up removers are you loving?
