A Vegan/Cruelty free beauty box | Chantelle Beauty Box

When deciding to subscribe to a monthly beauty box, what do you take in to account? Do you look for big brand names? Certain types of products? I myself have subscribed to Birch Box currently after contemplating which monthly box I wanted to receive. I did a lot of searching for all different types of beauty boxes and one thing I noticed about them - there was no vegan or cruelty free ones available anywhere. Sure, you get the occasional product in the big brand monthly boxes (Birch Box had a wonderful Spectrum Collections makeup brush in the Feb box) but there isn't a box that's entirely made up of animal friendly products, so I was super happy when I finally stumbled across the Chantelle Beauty* monthly box.

MUM, YOU DA BOMB | Lush Rose Bombshell review


Guess who went to Lush recently? If you guessed me, you're totally correct. I just can't resist popping in when I go to Sheffield and spending a tonne of money - everything is just so bloody good. I currently have a little love/hate relationship with Lush right now though, as they have stock for both Valentines and Mothers Day at the same time and honestly, my poor bank card can't handle it right now. So I decided to limit myself to three items, one of them being the new 2016 Mothers Day Rose Bombshell bath bomb!

A NEW SCENT ABOUT TOWN | Kiss Air Candles


The other day I was browsing around Instagram, I came across a cool little loop competition (a loop completion is where you follow an account and like the picture, move on to the account that is tagged in the picture, like the loop picture and follow the account and so on and so forth till your back to the start) that I immediately wanted to enter. One of the lovely brands that were part of the loop competition was KissAir Candles and it turned out that I happened to be their 1000th follower!

RANT POST | Males and 'beauty'

Fair warning, this post is definitely going to contain a lot of BIG, BOLD WORDS and a lot of annoyance, so if you aren't a fan of that, probably best to jump ship now and wait for Fridays post. If you can't guess from the title, this post is going to be all about how males are looked down on for taking care of themselves.

JANUARY IS OVER | My favourite products this month


I can't believe it's the first of February already! I literally did nothing in January. Well, apart from a lot of sleeping and eating but that is beside the point. So like every other blogger in the world, I had to compile a post of all my favourite products that I used last month because hey, who doesn't like having a nosey at what other people are enjoying right now?

HOW TO | Dealing with job rejection

I've been wanting to write this post for a while now, but never saw the right opportunity to actually do so but the chance finally arrived when I received some great news this week - I finally bagged myself a job! Saying that though, I've definitely had my fair share of rejections from plenty and know how awful it can feel, especially when its for a job that you KNOW you'd be perfect for, so I've put a little list of how to cope when you don't hear the news you want.

MYLEENE KLASS STATEMENT BRONZER | The full review

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't, you should!), you may have saw me post a picture of some of my favourites where this little bronzer appeared. I wasn't sure if I was ever going to review this as I thought that people wouldn't be too bothered but to be honest, I thought 'hey, I'd read a review on this if I didn't have it, so I'll bloody well write one up myself'.

I love having dark hair, but that certainly doesn't mean it comes without some problems. Sometimes it can be such a damn struggle that I've decided to list my top 4 here on my blog! Can you relate?

MY MAKEUP BAG | Lets have a peek


Whether we like to admit it or not, we all love a good nosey at others belongings to see what they've got. So of course as a beauty blogger, I had to eventually do a post showing you guys what I tend to keep stuffed in my makeup bag. I honestly feel sorry for my little bag, its absolutely stuffed and I'm surprised the poor zipper hasn't busted yet!

THE HOMEWARE EDIT | PINEAPPLE PASSION

(Image credit goes to H&M, Etsy, Asda, PrezzyBox & House of Fraser)

If you haven't been in any stores lately, then you probably wouldn't have seen that pineapples seem to be IN right now. Most home-ware selling shops are stocked up with something that looks like the spiky fruit and they seem to be getting more and more popular. I just had to write a post about it though, so I chose to do a list of my favourite products that are pineapple themed so you could go out and enjoy them just as much as I do!

FABULOUS FIVE | Real Techniques Brushes


When it rolled around to November last year, I knew it was time to invest in some better brushes for my makeup collection. I mean, what good is makeup if you have nothing decent to apply it with? A good brush can sometimes make all the difference to the application process and since I started using them, my makeup has turned out better than ever.

SOAP AND SCRUB SUNDAYS #1 | Fancy a Pool Party?

- Duck and dive and feel alive!

When I first had the idea to start my weekly #SASS posts (yes, I made damn sure that when I shortened the title of this series it would spell the word sass), I knew that Bomb Cosmetics would end up featuring more often than not. I'll admit that I went a bit crazy in the Boxing Day sales on their website so expect to see posts about them pop up!

If you haven't noticed, monthly subscription boxes are very much IN at the present time. You can have subscriptions for makeup, tea, food, figurines etc - if there is something you like, chances are there is some sort of box out there for you.

THE LIEBSTER AWARD | Get to know me!

So its Monday again, ugh. Even though I don't have a job, I still hate Mondays. They're just one of those days aren't they? This Monday I've decided to do a different post to my usual and finally get around to accepting and answering questions from the Liebster Award. This is my third nomination for this award/get to know the blogger-behind-the-blog and I feel like I'm comfortable enough for my audience to get to know me, so without further ado, lets begin!

SOAP AND SCRUB SUNDAYS | A WEEKLY SERIES

Over Christmas I had a lot of time to brainstorm post ideas and series that I want on my blog. The one I was most excited to put into to practice was this -'Soap and Scrub Sundays'. Every Sunday, I will be uploading a new post on a bath or shower product that I've been using over the week (I'm excluding bath bombs from this series as they tend to be a one use only product) and giving my personal opinion on the product and what you can expect if you decide to purchase it yourself!

What A Melon! | Bomb Cosmetics Lip Treatment Review

I'm a total sucker for any lip balm or lip treatment out there. I've struggled with dry, chapped and frankly awful lips for years. I've tried everything under the sun to help make them better and in the process I've found out that so many products that are listed as treatments for sore lips tend to actually cause more problems so you to keep buying them. Urgh.

LUSH BOXING DAY SALE | See what I got!

Just like every other lover of Lush, I woke up early and rushed over to my laptop to buy as many things as I could in the Lush sale. Unfortunately I was greeted by broken pages and a website in absolute tatters and trying to move from page to page was an absolute nightmare!

THATS REAL CHEEKY | Benefit blushing beauty kit review


I love Benefit Cosmetics and I think it's pretty obvious I do. Ever since I tried their eyebrow wax and powder, I've been head over heels for all their range of beauty products and I've made it my duty to try them all, old or new. So when the Christmas month rolled around and they brought out their Limited Edition sets, I had to pick at least one up! This one is the 'Real Cheeky Party' set which had a value of £110 but was being sold for £29. Now that's a blooming bargain!
