Hello everyone! So in the last hair post I did I mentioned that my stylist friend gave me a "hair glaze" which is a light styling gel- but I think when people hear the word gel they think of Jersey Shore guys putting in their hair gel, or the 90s crunchy curls (if you're a curly haired girl like myself) where you'd put gel in after washing your hair and you'd wake up with a wet look gel curl head. Gone are those days (well I mean you can still get that look with other products if that's what you're going for), but now there's a new kid in town- the rebirth of hair gels.

Hey everyone! I'm back with a skincare post and a super exciting giveaway! I know it may seem I've been doing a lot of giveaways recently, but so many wonderful brands have reached out to me and offered to send me products, and if I liked them to review them and host a giveaway so that one of my fabulous subscribers would be able to try them too! Nicest. Brands. Ever. Seriously- I can't believe it, but today I am sharing two products with you that have turned my life around.

Hey everyone! Today I have a really exciting post for all you matte lip lovers out there (thats a tongue twister) and there's even a sneaky dupe thrown in at the end where I dupe a well known product that costs $20, whereas these cost £2.99! Woo woo!
So it should come as no surprise that yet again I am posting about Makeup Revolution, we should all know by now that I am a MASSIVE fan of their products - such high quality at such low prices, you can't get much better than that. And if you didn't know they have dupes for MANY popular products, they even JUST came out with dupes for the NARS Multiples that I'm dying to try.

Mai Billsbepaid - The Balm Girls Lipstick* $17
OH. MY. GOD. I can't speak when it comes to this lipstick because I am at a loss for words. The Balm was SO nice and sent me a few products to try and this was one of them, I need every single one. I am a fan of lipsticks with finishes that are either cream, matte, or creamy matte. These ones start off as a cream lipstick and a few hours in the shine wears off a bit and they look more like that "creamy matte" finish - where they aren't totally matte, but aren't sheeny (is that a word?).

Hey guys! So I know you see me in lots of flouncy fancy dresses (which I love) but I've realized that I don't show enough of the clothes I actually wear on a daily basis, but I've been showing it a lot more recently (the ripped shorts post, the kimono post, and this post). So today I am definitely featuring a brand called Deth Kult that I found through twitter that is so badass, I absolutely love their clothes. I id purchase these with my own money, they just gave me a slight discount - they are a new startup brand (and obviously can't send out freebies to bloggers).
I purchasde a cranberry beanie, and their Accept Your Fate tee (so badass I love it) and they are both such high quality! The weather here is that annoying weather where it is super cold in the mornings, then hot, then cold at night so you have to dress very strangely (thanks fall), so I thought I'd share my more "street style" with you (haha get it I even took the pictures in the street) and some pictures of my makeup! I am well aware of two giant planet on my forehead, sadly concealer only covers the redness, it doesn't flatten out the bumps -_-

Straight out of the gate, we all know that I have been steadily working on shedding the pounds over the last year and still continuing to do so. One of the simplest and easiest tricks I've learned to shed the weight is to stop drinking sugary drinks (sodas, juices, etc.) and switch over to water (or sparkling water...I LOVE that stuff. It makes me feel like I'm drinking a soda when I'm actually not but make sure you check the salt on them! They can be high in sodium).
Let's face it, drinking water 24/7 is boring. It isn't exciting and then you're in the store and see that bottle of your favorite soda or juice and feel it just calling to you while you're holding a bottle of water in your hand- not a good situation! I've always had my water bottles and put fruit in them to try and liven up the flavor but after a while the fruit gets really gross looking and you can't get it out of the bottle without washing the whole thing and you get a LOT of strange looks when you have pieces of orange floating around in a water bottle.
And THAT my friends is where this beautiful invention, the Citrus Zinger comes in.

I Tint My Brows ♡ * - Makeup Revolution £1.99
Holy brows! As in I have finally found my holy grail brow product! WOW what a lofty claim to make right? As you all know my brows are VERY blonde (I've done posts on dying them and if you haven't seen them in their nature state you will later in this post), as in so blonde it looks like they are sparse (they aren't) and you can't see most of the hairs....super annoying!
I've been around the block with brow products, I've tried so many that you can think of. I've gone too bold, too little, not worn anything in my brows at all, dyed them too dark, didn't dye them at all...you name it (the only thing I haven't done is sharpie brows) but I even went through the "my brows are going to be unnaturally square in the middle" phase. So I definitely think that I am a good person to be talking about brow products.
