Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Review:

Hello everyone,

  So recently I purchased Benefit's new Roller Lash Mascara whilst traveling on holiday in duty free, thinking it looks amazing and I've seen great reviews so why the hell not?! Well It certainly didn't disappoint.



As a massive fan of the 'They're Real' mascara making my lashes look incredible their new mascara definitely tops it, making them look insane!





With my lashes being fairly long anyway this mascara works amazingly well for me.   I have been receiving many compliments of family and friends, which is always a good sign.   I honestly can't find any flaws to the Roller Lash mascara...

I find it to last all day on me - and beyond, It's black as black can be, the wand separates lashes just enough with adding a lovely curl without even curling before hand, adding even more length plus 0% fall out onto my skin.   Also strange one, this mascara seems somewhat waterproof, not fully but don't worry ladies enough for a little cry, so let it out and nobody will ever know!





Although this Mascara is a little pricey, you really do get what you are actually paying for here! Amazing product, a well loved and trusted brand, and look at the beautiful packaging (as always with Benefit products) you really can't go wrong! Give it a go and tell me what you think!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - £19.50 at Debenhams

My MAC Summer Lip Essentials & Review:

Hello everyone,

 So for the longest time I have been constantly searching for the perfect purple/pinky lip colour...and I have finally found the one!




MAC Flat Out Fabulous along with MAC Magenta Lip Pencil = utter summer lip perfection without a doubt!

Plum/purple tones work well with the Retro Matte finish of this lipstick and the boldness of the colour.   Also it really seems to suit my skin tones, as I think it would on many others too especially a dark complexion.   Many people have been asking me what I'm wearing and that they love it so much, compliments are always good things!   This lipstick is also very opaque so often only one coat is needed which is brilliant for my purse to hear.   With the colour pay off being ever so great, you'll never get lost with this lipstick on!




The colour match of the Lip Liner is also almost identical.   A Lip Liner is for sure needed with this Lipstick, great staying power, however it is matte so obviously it has the tendency to bleed...never a great look.   And being such a vivid colour that you can't miss in a hurry, I wouldn't recommend risking no Lip Liner.




Especially for the summer this is perfect, with a dramatic winged eyeliner to go with the 'Matte Retro' theme, and extra long lashes.   The lasting power is 10x better with the Lip Liner added underneath, but only a few hours extra so obviously every time you eat/drink etc check and top up.






Overall I am completely in love with the look this lip combo gives me, please comment below if you know of anymore purple lip shades I may like!

Lip Liner - Magenta - £12.50
Lipstick - Flat Out Fabulous - £15.50      current prices at Selfridges

Coastal Walks: Fuerteventura June 2015

Hey everyone,

So I recently came back from my holiday in Fuerteventura, here are a few coastal photos from my day at the beautiful beach...



The sand was perfect, am I the only one who likes the feeling of sand in-between my toes? Im such a beach bum at heart.





If you're ever in Fuerteventura, check out this beach just minutes from Jandia mar.   It is stunning and utterly perfect, like the Caribbean but in Europe.

Relieving Stress - My Tips

Hey everyone,

So recently my life has been very stressful and hectic, really a compete nightmare sometimes.   But I've pulled through it and I'm feeling happy and like life is perfect again! Thank the gods!

Here are a few ways that helped to relieve all the negative energy;

Retail Therapy...Because who doesn't love shopping anyway, at least now you have a reason to do it! This always seems to chill me out, shopping either with friends or alone really seems to relax me and keep me happy, even if you don't have tones of money at the time shop anyway, window shopping is free!

Sitting down with a good book and a hot chocolate...Reading is a way to relax and keep the mind calm, its a given fact.   So why not read when your stressed, take your mind off your latest issues and worries and get your head into a good book, with a cuppa of course.

Take a walk...A pretty obvious and self explanatory option, but a  great one none the less.   It really does clear your mind, do it! who cares what the weather is like.

Keep your mind occupied!...Take this how you wish.   Whether you want to be occupied by friends & family, or doing something you love...do it! Never be bored enough to start getting stressed and worried again.

I hope this helps a few of you out there, it has definitely helped me lately when things get too much you have to refocus and don't give up.   Don't forget to leave comments and feel free to contact me on my social media, Thanks everyone.
