Skincare Product Review: Gatineau & SBC

Hey Guys!
Happy Friday to you all. A slightly different blog post for this Friday, however I got my hands on these beautiful new products which are too good not to share so I thought I would do a little Product Review for you all. I know these brands are slightly more expensive than budget level, but I feel that for the perfect skincare, it is better to branch out a little in terms of price. Also, these bottles are pretty big so you are paying for quantity as well as quality here.

GRWM - Party Inspired Outfit.


Hey Guys!
I know, I know. It's Monday and I don't want to suddenly depress you all with the mention of the word party, but I'm going to do it anyway. With all good weekends comes a good party and I would like to share with you all a party inspired 'Get Ready With Me' outfit. 


I went for a more casual, easily maintainable look for a night out with minimal makeup up and quite a sensible outfit. My hair was done by plaiting it in french braids either side the night before. This gave it quite a natural wave which was nice to wear down without much needing done to it. I then quickly gave it a little spray of my TRESemme Extra Hold Hairspray. Another way of doing this is by loosely curling your hair with either a curling wand or, my option, straighteners. Call me crazy, but I find it a hundred times easier curling my hair with straighteners than I ever have with a curling wand.

My Five Minute Makeup Routine

Hey Guys!
It's Friday! Yes, the weekend has finally arrived. No one is more grateful than me for that fact. As a student, the weekends are longed for with the weeks being such a rush nowadays, especially with the upcoming exams (sorry for the devastating reminder)! So for this week, I thought what better do to than a quick, easy makeup look that saves plenty of time but still leaves you looking awesome? There is nothing worse than rushing around, stressed out of your head and feeling like you aren't looking your best. I've been there and done that plenty a time. So in aid of this, I give you...

My Five Minute Makeup Routine

This is very similar to my "No Makeup" Makeup post I done not too long ago except a heck of a lot faster and easier to do. All it takes is your basic makeup appliances and five minutes of your time!

I've been having a serious craving for more beauty products, so I thought I'd temporally satisfy my needs with Beauty Wishlist whilst also slyly planning for the day I decide a beauty buying sesh is on the cards.

'Frozen' Inspired Hairstyle

Hey Guys!

It feels like so long since I last posted! I refuse to make excuses though I am going to attempt to make more time for blog posts. I've been neglecting the quality and depth within my posts and I am adamant to change that! Soon, fingers crossed very soon, I plan on making way more blog posts than just once a week. Please give some suggestions on what you would like to see!
So recently, my obsession with Frozen has revived itself, especially my obsession with Elsa's trademark hairstyle. Frozen is one of those movies which reaches out to all age groups, so I feel completely fine admitting my obsession and my undying wish to look like Elsa. So I thought, let's be a child for the day and look like Elsa.

Pink For Spring: Makeup Tutorial

Hey Guys!

Happy Friday to you all! This week, I've really been getting in the mood for Spring, so I thought, why not do a Spring inspired makeup tutorial. Now, I know pink isn't always everyone's colour. I know for me, it is so far out of my comfort zone that the pinks I used in the tutorial had never before been opened and that is rare for me. I have no patience at all, so leaving a makeup product in the background to collect dust is not in my character. But since it is finally Spring and I want nothing more than to see the flowers blossoming and the sun shining, I thought I'd cheer myself up a little and bring Spring to this blog post.

How to: Cheap and Easy Way To Clean Makeup Brushes

Hey Guys!

Recently, I've realised how much I have been neglecting my makeup brushes and that is not ok. As a fellow makeup lover, I know makeup brushes are the soul appliance in order to apply my makeup and in order to do that, it is a must that they are constantly looking their best. I've realised now that cleaning your makeup brushes on a regular basis is key to the perfect application and the perfect skin. Did you know dirty makeup brushes can cause your skin to break out? I certainly wasn't aware of this before I became an avid makeup lover. If you're like me and can never seem to find the time to clean your makeup brushes, then this should really help you. 

How To: Cheap and Easy Way To Clean Makeup Brushes
I know for me personally, when I first really got into makeup I had no clue how to clean my brushes! Heck, I didn't even know you had to clean your brushes! I thought, along with everything else in the makeup industry, it would be extremely expensive but I was completely wrong on both accounts. Everything I needed, I conveniently had within my own house and I had no reason to go splashing out on expensive brush cleaner or the need to buy new brushes. If you learn how to clean your brushes properly, then they can last you a lifetime!
