Soap & Glory Are Plucking Marvellous!

Soap & Glory Are Plucking Marvellous!

Soap and Glory drifted into my life through my love of bath and body products like a sweet-smelling, pretty, witty dream and I never looked back! From my first sniff of the luxurious shower cream, Clean on Me it was love, they’re wide variety and high quality products are enough to make anyone indulge in a little self pampering!

My love of Soap and Glory naturally excites me about being a possible glambassador for them, it would right up my alley as an English student and bath, body and beauty fanatic. Simply entering has reignited my love of blogging and I am incredibly excited about this opportunity!

A lot like Soap and Glory, my uni, the University of the West of England in Bristol also has variety and quality, all wrapped up in excellently on trend packaging! UWE is such a great uni and yes, maybe I’m a little bias, BUT, let me state my case…

UWE has an amazing range of brilliant courses, (much like Soap and Glory’s range of fabulous products), everything from English to Aerospace Engineering! However, this wouldn’t mean anything without dedicated, passionate lecturers, but its okay, we’ve got those too! In addition to this we have a kick ass library, set over three floors, for all your book reading, assignment researching, essay writing needs!

And it’s not all work either! We have a buzzing student’s union bar where we have many events to get people out after a hard day studying. From the weekly ‘Lock in’ to jazz nights, comedy nights, poetry slams and quiz nights! there’s something for everyone! Theres no excuse!

And finally for the sporty among you that like to hit the gym after all that excitement, (and of course after you’ve removed any makeup with your Drama Clean Micellar Cleansing Water), we have our very own on site gym! As well as being incredibly convenient for an after lecture workout, it also boats excellent facilities and once again, wonderfully helpful staff!

So there you have it! I think my uni is a kick ass place to work and play and I would love to help represent the amazing brand of Soap and Glory!

Please pluck me!

Nip+Fab Review

Nip+Fab Review

Hi guys!

So today I have a little bit of a review for you! I have been loving the range Nip+Fab recently, especially as a lot of it is up to 50% off in Superdrug at the moment!

I have collected a few little pieces over the last few weeks and will do a quick run through of all three and how I use them. Lets get stuck in!

IMG_1792

Firstly, I’ve been using the Nip+Fac Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads for a couple of weeks now. They come in a little pot of sixty pre soaked pads, packed with goodness, including Glycolic acid which retextures and resurfaces, hyaluronic acid which moisturises and refreshes and blue daisy which soothes and calms.

IMG_1793

I’ve really loved using these as they really easy to use, and thoroughly refreshing on the skin. They feel like they’re actually doing something and leave my skin feeling so clean and fresh after cleansing, morning or evening. I’ve felt this had really made a difference to my skin, especially around my nose, my blackhead problem area! These are only £5.00 in Superdrug at the moment!!

Next up we have the Nip+Fab Dark Circle Fix Triple Action Eye Cream.

IMG_1794

I’ve been searching for an eye cream for awhile now and this again had money off so thought I’d give it ago. I love eye creams simply for the fact they make my eyes feel so moisturised and awake. This one I’ve been using morning and night, you only need a tiny amount which is great and it has made visible results in my dark circles and puffiness, love this! Only £7.95 in Superdrug!

Finally we have the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Overnight purifying Gel. This is for dull and oily skin and you put it on overnight for a fresh face in the morning. So this helps exfoliate, helps unclog congested pores and help even skin tone.

IMG_1795

 

The only thing I don’t like about this one is the smell after you’ve put it on, a few seconds after initially applying it smells a bit unpleasant, but this doesn’t last long. I haven’t noticed as much as a difference in my skin, but I haven’t been using this one as long so I can’t say completely if it works or not. £9.95 in Superdrug now!

So overall I’m really enjoying Nip+Fab’s skin care range, I do really think its working wonders for my skin, I would highly recommend, especially at its current price in Superdrug!

Winter Lip Care Routine (Dior Addict Lipstick)

Winter Lip Care Routine (Dior Addict Lipstick)

Hello!

So who else gets annoying dry and sore lips in winter? Yes? Well me bloody too! Its just brilliant isn’t it? For me its pretty much a daily battle because as soon as they get a little dry and cracked I am sure to bite them and make them even more sore!

So I have complied what I do to keep my lips in tip top condition, not only for the sake of my lips but also so they look good under any of my array of beautiful lipsticks!

So first of all I would exfoliate my lips! Recently I’ve been using the Benefit Dr. Feelgood Buffing Lip Beads. These are brilliant for getting rid of flaky, dry skin with out it being harsh to the sensitive skin of the lips.IMG_1679

 

I will then obviously rehydrate my lips and at the moment I’ve been loving   Badger’s Lip & Body Balm  in Highland Mint. This is brilliant for slicking on my lips to keep my smooth and subtle. Its great if you really massage it in as it sinks in nicely and as its a body balm as well you can go onto the skin around your lips too.

IMG_1678

Then of course it’s time to whack on your favourite lipstick, for me its the simple yet beautiful Dior Addict Lipstick in 260.

And there you go! Perfectly kissable lips! I really love this Dior lipstick as its smooth, shimmery but oh so subtle and pretty!

Dream Winter Boot Collection! (Pixie Footwear)

Dream Winter Boot Collection! (Pixie Footwear)

Hello!

Here we are in winter and although the weather has been pretty mild around these parts lately, it still means we girls want to change up our shoe collection from pretty little sandals and pumps to more cosy, sturdy boots and shoes.

So today I have compiled a ‘wish list’ from a beautiful, high quality woman’s boot company Pixie Footwear. They are super cute, super quality and super affordable! Here’s what they have to say about them on their website…

‘Pixie was launched in 2011 by Steve Trigg, a well established footwear designer and manufacturer for over 30 years. Steve is based in UK and our whole collection is designed inhouse. We then manufacture to the highest standard in China.

At Pixie we pride ourselves on making excellent quality boots that will feel like you’re wearing slippers. Our designs are all fully faux fur lined, right down to the toes, giving a warm and super comfy feel.

Our aim is to offer cutting edge designs, together with uber comfort, for the very best look and feel. Team your Pixie’s with skinny jeans, leggings or tights and you’ll never look back.’

So lets get on with my wish list from this great company!

  1. Heidi Camel 

This is for ladies that prefer a flat winter boot without giving up the stylish look we all want! The Heidi Camel is the perfect cross between comfort and warmth, I mean just look at them, I want my feet in them right now! I also love the tassel detail at the back and I love the colour, although if you don’t they also do these in a grey! Perfect! As well as all this they are an affordable £69.95

Heres what they have to say about them on their website…

‘An Evolution Of Pixie’s Rosie Boot, Heidi Offers A Modern Approach To A Classic Mid-Height Style. With Thick Over-Sized Laces Up The Back Of The Leg, Two Tassels And Lashings Of Warm Cosy Fur, This Boot Is A Statement In Style And Warmth.’

2. Emily Berry

So you want an ultra modern, sweetly simplistic, comfy as winter boot but want the sexiness of a wedge? NO PROBLEM! These Emily boots are utterly gorgeous! I LOVE the colour, (but also comes in grey, mink and navy), I can just imagine wearing these with a dress and tights, or skinny jeans and a jumper, almost anything and again they are so comfy, its like you’re not wearing a heel. These ones are £64.95.

‘Emily’s Minimalist Design And Fresh Range Of Colours Includes Navy, Mink, Berry And Grey. This Fully Faux -Fur Lined Boot Combines The Warmth And Comfort Associated With Pixie’s Range Of Flat Boots, With The Glamour Of A Wedge.’

3.  Tammy Camel

These are quite possibly my favourites! I love the wedge, I love the lace up detail and think these would just look AMAZING with a casual day dress and tights, so cute! These for me are the perfect match of comfort and style, they are not too girly but still give you a classy feminine edge. All for £69.95.

So there you have it, my wish list from the brilliant people at Pixie Footwear! I highly recommend you go and check them out and with FREE DELIVERY, you’d be mad not to have a look!

Let me know what you think of these boots and which ones you’d pick!

Winter Look Book: Skinny Jeans and Fluffy Coats…

Hi there!

Hope everyone is good! So I thought today I would share my first winter look book with you all!

I love simple pieces that I can wear again and again and with anything, with a few statement items to jazz it up. I also went a little crazy today and bought myself a new coat from Topshop which I am IN LOVE WITH! I was very lucky with it as it was on the last chance to buy rail and, after a quick check online, I found it is sold out in every size except 14! I will leave the link below for if they come back in stock!

Meanwhile here are the photo’s! Sorry they aren’t the best quality, it was dark by the time I got home to photograph them! 😦  (It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…!)

Makeup Look! Clinique Chubby Stick Review

Makeup Look! Clinique Chubby Stick Review

Hello friends!

So today I have a makeup look for you that I based around my new Clinique Chubby Stick (Shadow tint for eyes) in 09 Lavish Lilac and my new Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks. I bought the Chubby Stick thanks to my best friend who has it and looks stunning with it on her eyes so I went and got one too!

I tried three different lipsticks on with this look too, (In order) MAC Hue, Rimmel Kate Moss in 107 and the Red Nose Day Red 01.

Here is the Chubby Stick and the Lipsticks…

And here are the rest of the products I used!
