April Glossybox- The Natural Box

I finally received my April Glossybox late last week and thought I would share my thoughts. I'm not going to bore you all too much with things as there is a lot of reviews out there already....

This months box is 'The Natural Beauty Box' and comes in a 100 per cent biodegradable box!
All products inside the box are ethical- Fab! Beauty with a conscience!

I received:

Inka Cosmetics Organic Eyeliner in Black- A lovely eyeliner pencil, glides onto the eyelid and does not drag at all. Lovely pigmented colour. One of my fav products this month.
Figs and Rouge Lip Balm in Rambling Rose- I have something on my lips nearly every minute of everyday, lipbalms, glosses etc. I was interested to try this product as I do love organic products especially in beauty as I feel happier knowing I am not caking my face full of chemicals. The balm is very soft in the tin and glides on to the lips at first it feels a quite rough texture (almost like a scrub).But this quickly changes as the balm melts into the lips, lovely product feels super moisturising!
Caudalie SOS Thirst quenching serum- I can't help but think that this is one of those products like oh so many products I receive in my glossy boxes that get put in a draw and that's where they shall stay. I do not have a problem with dry skin so I cannot give this a fair review. The serum is very watery not like other serums I have used in the past.
Kai Perfume Oil- This is my favourite product from this months box. I absolutely adore this scent. It is so natural and fresh smelling love this! Only down side there isn't much in the sample bottle!
Ayuuri body wash-  Not used this product yet as I am saving it for my hols! Enriched with Aloe Vera Coconut oil and jasmine. Smells divine! And if something smells good I will buy it! Perfect size to take away on holiday and Aloe Vera perfect for freshly tanned skin! Perfect! 

Overall I really have enjoyed this box. Usually there is more products I dislike than like but this month it is the other way round! Fab

Burberry Lip Cover in Rosewood

I received this recently in my March Glossy box and I am absolutely in lover with it!

It is such a lovely shade perfect for my lip colour and also the texture when applied is to die for!

The lip cover glides on the lip and feels super smooth and moisturising!

The extra details like the signature Burberry logo printed on to the lip cover bullet. LOVE this!

And the packaging is beautiful too!

Here are a couple of swatches.... what do you think?

Love Always

Getting Shirty... OOTD

What a lovely bit of sunshine we have been having lately.... and then snow.
Last week here up north it was scorching hot.... next minute we have snow, very very strange weather. Therefore very testing fashion wise! This outfit of the day was one of the warmer days and a smart casual outfit for a uni day. I would of happily worn this outfit out to a beer garden or something and dressed it up slightly with some wedges.

Shirt is H&M
Orange vest underneath is New Look
Grey Jeggings are Primark
Necklace is Freedom @Topshop
Shoes are ever faithful ASOS!
My hair I created the curls with my GHD Straightening irons
My glasses are Missoni at Specsavers
And my beautiful jewelled phone cover is from Ebay!

(I think that is everything!)

And so on to the Piccies!!!....

Lots of Love

Wishing you a very happy Easter, lots of family time and best of all CHOCOLATE! Yey!

love always



Barry M lilac polish 308

I am such a big fan of pastel polish I think they are just so cute and girly! I have had a very similar lilac polish from Models Own before this one but with the slight price difference (models own at £5 and Barry M at £2.99) Barry M was the clear choice. I am always confident that Barry M polishes are going to be good so choosing the cheaper one was a no brainer.

Barry M Nail Paint in 308 Berry l/c

Exact dupe for Models Own Lilac Dream.... Both available here

A perfect colour for spring....
