Cloud 9 Skin Solutions - Tranquility & Clarity | Review + Giveaway [Closed]

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.

The Wow Stick! Review + Swatches

The Wow Stick (Complete Line) - Makeup Revolution* £2.99

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.

The Balm Girls | Mai Billsbepaid

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?).

£100 Giveaway! [Closed]

Hey everybody!!! Recently I was asked if I would like to host a giveaway on my blog from a website I love and have reviewed products from in the past so of course the answer was a GIANT YES!

If you remember the review I did a while back on the Moroccan Oil Light (read here) it was from the website where they sell tons of high end hair products, and extensions. They are basically the hair heaven of the internet world, any time I want to find a link for something hair related I can usually find it on their site. I can't speak loads for extensions because I don't wear them but you can click here and see for yourself if you are interested to see their extensions :) They also sell hair straighteners and curling irons and stock brands like Cloud Nine (review here), GHD, Sebastian, Paul Mitchell, Moroccan Oil, Redken, Fudge Urban, Tigi - you name it, you can find it there!

Bad Hair Day

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 -_-

China Flower

 China Flower - Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel  $6.49

Hey everyone! Haven't done a NOTW in a LONG time, but with everything being so hectic I thought I'd do a NOTW and a mini review all in one!

Now I know I'm extremely late to reviewing these polishes, (I have five) because they came out about a year ago, but I just don't know what happened and I never got around to a review!

Healthy Hints: Citrus Zinger | Zing Anything

 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.

Holy Brows!

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 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.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel

Hey everyone! Today I am doing a hair post! The last time I did a hair post with pictures of the results it was really well received so when I was offered the chance to review the Cloud Nine irons that is now carrying I jumped at the chance! There are going to be a lot of pictures in the post, but this is your warning now- I have both curled/waved my hair with this iron and wanted to show both amongst other things.
