2018 is nearly over and with only a few days left to go, I thought I would put together all of my favourites items from this year. There have been so many products that I have discovered this year that I have loved and can't live without. In this post, I will show you all the products I have loved this year! 

Finally the last Birchbox of the year has arrived and I couldn't be more excited. So far I have been very pleased with all of my previous Birchboxes and it has introduced me to some amazing new products that I probably wouldn't have tried before. Here I will show you everything I received in my latest Birchbox!

Recently I have realised how much I actually used my original Beauty Blender and felt like it was time to part ways and try something new (and cheaper). That's when I decided to try out some of the makeup sponges that I could find in the drug store and High street stores. In this post, I will be putting the sponges to the test to see who comes out on top!

The weeks are going quickly and Christmas is literally around the corner and even though I'm not actually doing Blogmas most of my posts have so far been Christmas related! In this post, I will be showing you all of my favourite red lipsticks perfect for this time of year.

This post is slightly late as I wanted some of my new Christmas posts to go up but better late than never! I can't believe that its already December, the time is flying by it will be January before we know it. This month I have rediscovered some old loves and found some new products that I'm now obsessed with!

Christmas is only around the corner and the time is coming to start putting the tree up and decorating (my favourite part). I usually stay at home for Christmas and only actually get out of my pyjamas just before dinner and I usually put on a bit of makeup for the festivities. In this post, I will be showing you what products I use to create an easy makeup look perfect for Christmas day. 

Perfume has always been something that I ask for at Christmas, for some reason I don't usually get perfumes for myself but once the bottle I'm using is finished I start testing out all different perfumes to add to my Christmas list. I know I'm not going to get all of these scents for Christmas but hopefully, they go in the Boxing Day Sales!

I still to this day buy magazines and lust over the items in the glossy pages. Recently while having a look through my favourite magazine (Cosmo!) I realised that they have influenced me a lot in different products to try out. In this post, I will be showing you what products I brought because I saw them In my magazines. 

It is finally the time to start with all things Christmas, for a while now I have been putting together my Beauty Gift Guide. I wanted this guide to be affordable for everyone so all the items on this list are under £10 each. These gifts can be used to treat yourself, used in secret Santas or cute stocking fillers!

The lead up to Christmas has begun and all the Christmassy themed items are being brought out which I love and now Birchbox has teamed up with Disney (yay) for the release of their new movie The Nutcracker and Four Realms which I cannot wait to see. The design of this box is actually my favourite this year and will be something that will be going on display this Christmas. 

A while back I read a post on Glow Steady called I Reviewed It, Do I Still Use It? that I've linked for you to read for yourself, I loved the post and thought about all the products that I've reviewed in the past. In this post, I will be going through some of the products I've reviewed and let you know if I'm still using them!

In a recent PR package from Soap & Glory, I was kindly given a few Christmas gift sets which included these Lip Paints, you can find my full post here. I had never seen these Lip Paints before and they sounded so interesting that I knew I had to review them. I have had these products for a few days and have been testing them out to see how they really work and if I would use them again. 

A few days ago I arrived home from work to a very pretty pink box on my doorstep and I instantly knew it was from Soap & Glory. For a while, I have been apart of Soap & Glory's #babaesofglory team, that you can find over on Instagram and I am very lucky to receive some gifts every now and again and for this month I was gifted some of the amazing items from The Soap & Glory's new Christmas collection. In this post, I will be introducing you to the amazing products I received. 

I cannot believe that it is already November, the year has flown by and Christmas is just around the corner. This post I have put together all of the Makeup and Skincare products I have been obsessed with this October and the products I will continue to use for the rest of the year!

This year there has been a surge in the number of brands that are offering beauty advent calenders. They are an amazing chance to try out different and new products. Most of the advent calendars come with the 24 days of Christmas but some come with 12. Here I have put together all the calendars that I would love to get and try out over the Christmas period! 

This Sunday in the UK the clocks go back and the evenings get darker earlier and this is the best time to have a lazy autumn pamper night in, In this post, I will let you know about how I have a perfect paper night that can be done alone or with friends for a night In. 

I have seen so many of these posts recently and I love to read them as it really gives you an insight into what products people really like to use and is also a bit nosy too. Now my collection is a bit large but I have been collecting these palettes for years and have used and loved all of them. In this post, I will show you all of my palettes and explain why I love them!

In the past, I have read but also watched a good amount of videos on peoples Holy Grail products. I find these types of posts the best to read as you get to really be nosey and see peoples favourite products and why they keep buying and using the products. In this post, I will be showing you my absolute holy grail Makeup, Skincare and Haircare products.  

I can't actually believe its already October hasn't the year flew by! I recently received my October Birchbox and was really excited that this month you actually get 6 products instead of 5 including a perfume same and a full-size sheet mask. If you would like to take a peek at what I got in my other Birchboxes you can see them here. 

I've been seeing a few of these posts lately and thought I would write one of my own and I have to admit I was slightly worried. I know I spend a lot of money on makeup (for the blog of course) but never actually thought about how much my everyday full face of makeup would actually cost! Here I'll be going through my everyday makeup bag and adding up the cost! Wish me luck. 

Over the years my skin has changed a lot, it can be dry in places and normal in others but all round I have oily skin. I have to deal with my oily skin on a daily bases and wearing makeup can be a struggle sometimes but in this post, I have put together a few base products that are perfectly suited for people with oily skin like me!

Dry skin has always been a problem for me, whether its dry patches on my face or on my body and it tends to flare up more in the winter months. In this post, I have put together my favourite superheroes which have really saved my skin and will also be going in depth to show you their hydrating ingredients. 

Since we are now fully into Autumn with leaves falling off the trees and the temperature dropping I thought I would do my first Autumnal post of the year with the Perfect Lip Products to get you through the colder months. 

For my birthday my boyfriend surprised me with this Beauty Box, I think he knows I have an obsession with all things makeup and skincare. In this box, you get 8 miniature high-end beauty products with brands such as Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown and all for only £25!

A good few months ago I made my first Skincare routine and throughout my time with this blog, I have switched up my products a bit and added a few new gems that I thought I would share with you. 

If you have read my blog for a while you will know that I love going into Tk Maxx and having a rummage, you can read about it in an old post of mine, my Tk Maxx Beauty Wish List. Searching through the Beauty department on a recent trip I went a little overboard and brought a few bits for an amazing deal that I'll show you here.

I was recently sent a huge pink box for being apart of #babesofglory and it also arrived on my birthday! and  I knew straight away that it was a Soap & Glory package and was instantly excited to see what's inside! Soap & Glory have recently released a new range of products called their Call Of Fruity Range where all of the products have a fruity and exotic scent. I was kindly sent a few products to try out and review.

Makeup brands everywhere are now adding more makeup brushes to their collections and they are also becoming more and more expensive, so I've decided to go on eBay to have a look to see if I can find quality makeup brushes for a small price. In this post, I will be honestly reviewing 4 different makeup applicator sets to see if they are worth leaving my expensive brushes behind!

Recently I went on a little purge of my makeup and decided to finally let go of some products that I haven't used in a while but this also helped me to rediscover some products that I haven't used or just forgot about and that was mainly my Face Palettes. I tend to use single Bronzer, Blush and Highlighters but Face Palettes are so much easier as you get all three products in one which makes them perfect for travel on anyone on the go. Here I'll show you all my favourite Face Palettes worth giving a go.

September being my birthday month I was really excited to receive this months box and see what goodies are inside. So far having Birchbox since March I have discovered some really lovely products that I still use I even wrote a dedicated post for this, Birchbox Products I'm Still Using. There has been a few duds but overall I've been very impressed and can't wait to revive my new box every month. 

This post might be coming a bit late but I can't believe that with my months of having this blog that I've never actually made a favourites post. These types of posts are actually one of my fav items to read and to also watch on YouTube. In this post I have put together my favourite makeup, body care and hair care that I've been using the most this month. 

For the next instalment of this series, I have decided to show you five of my favourite mascaras all for under £5. This was actually a hard task as most drugstore and high street mascaras now usually start from around £7.99. Most of these mascaras I've been using for years and a few are new discoveries that I've been obsessed with. Here I'll give you some mini mascara reviews with before and after photos prove how good they are!

Revolution has done it again, they have brought out a new product that I've instantly wanted to ey have brought out another concealer in the Fast Base range which is specifically for the Under eye area. Again I went on an innocent shopping spree without the intention of buying anything new but I stumble across this concealer and has to get it because it's shiny and new. In this review, I will give you my review and first impression on this concealer.

Recently I have decided to change up my skincare routine and make sure that I'm doing it morning and evening to better my skin, But I have also discovered that whilst having a good skincare regime is great but if your eating all the wrong foods your skin just won't benefit. Here I'll explain how healthy eating can be beneficial for our skin. 

Last week I was kindly sent this eye mask from Feel Good Contact which is the Therma°Pearl Eye-ssential Mask (love the pun!) which can be used either hot and cold for dry eyes, headaches/sinuses, puffy eyes and more. When I was contacted by the brand I was so happy to review this product as I actually suffer from a load of these eye issues. Here I give my honest review of this product. 

I done my first product empties way back in May which you can read here and since then I have gathered a few more bits and bobs that I've used all up. This time I've used up some more skincare which I don't usually do because I try out a lot of new products. I find these types of posts one of the most interesting to read because you find out what products people actually love and finished up. 

Recently I have started to pay more attention to the makeup products that I apply to my skin and have realised a lot of brands add harsh chemicals to their makeup that can irritate and cause breakouts to our skin. I've decided to use a lot more mineral makeup on my skin and here I'll explain why it's benefiting my skin. 

Working in the beauty industry I have come across some beauty problems that need solutions and finally, I have found them. In this post, I will show you all the problems I've faced with either makeup or skincare and show you how I've dealt with it!

Every now and again I get really stuck in a rut with my products and forget to try new things or even go back through some products that I haven't used in a while. I then decided to go through all of my makeup, skincare and hair care and found some hidden gems that I haven't used in ages and have added them back into my Beauty routine. Here I will show you all the products that I've recently rediscovered. 

Recently I have had a small blogging break because I went away for a few days and when I arrived home I was happy to find that I received my 6th Birchbox which means that I am finally a VIP member! This means that I get 15% off instead of 10% (which I need with my spending habits!) With becoming a VIP subscriber of Birchbox I also was gifted a really cute holographic makeup bag. This month Birchbox teamed up with Etsy for 10 different designs for their boxes with each one being a representation of their creativity and products. The box I received was designed by Lucy Says I Do if your getting married or just love weddings I would definitely check her shop out. 

During the summer (especially this heatwave that we are having in the UK) I like to change up my foundation routine as it is so hot! In this post, I will show you my two different routines and the products that I use to get my foundation look summer ready.

Drug Store and High street makeup have always been a favourite of mine. When I was younger I used to save up to be able to buy a new lipstick or eyeliner and still to this day I love finding an amazing product for an also great price. I've decided to start a new series on my blog for 5 products that I love for under £5 to help you find amazing products for an even better price! 

This summer in the U.K. We are really having amazing weather, we have been in a heatwave for little over a month now it's still staying hot! And because of this, our skin suffers a lot. This weather can cause dryness and dehydrated skin which isn't the best look for when you want to wear shorts or skirts. With this guide, I will show you all of the products that I use on my skin to keep it feeling great in this boiling hot weather. 

This months post is coming slightly later than usual because I've actually given myself the chance to try out all of the products that I received in this months box to give better first impression reviews. This month has one of my favourite designs on it (maybe because its pink) and it has also given me a product that is now apart of my everyday makeup routine.

Its been a while since I wrote a post dedicated to skincare and recently I have noticed that there are a few products that I cannot live without and these would be my skincare superheroes (needed a good title). These products are also something that I would recommend everyone to try to up their skincare game! 

A few months ago I put together my Blog Resources to help out people who are starting a blog. Over the last few months, I have been using some different resources to help me with my blog so I thought I would make an updated version of my Blog Resources that you can find here

Over a month ago I saw a tweet on Soap & Glory's PR page about giving small bloggers a chance to be a part of the team with #babesofglory. So far I have been kindly gifted a mini Hand Maid and Clean on me shower gel and I was also given my own personalised Clean On Me with my name and face on it! This time I was gifted the best package ever with a makeup bag with 4 of Soap & Glory's must-have makeup marvels! For this post, I will be giving my reviews and first impressions on the products.

If you know me you will know that I really love the colour pink, my bedroom is pink (boyfriends not a fan), a lot of my clothes are pink and also I have a big collection of beauty products that are pink. During the summer I love to add more pink into my beauty routines. For this post, I will show all the pink products that I think are perfect for summer. 

I've now been subscribed to Birchbox for about 5 months now (Still waiting on my 5th box!) and so far have really enjoyed every box that I have received, for this post I thought I would show you all the products that I have continued to use and love from all my birchboxes. 

Before I started blogging I would sit and watch all different YouTubers tell me what's in their bags and I've always wanted to do one of my own. I just found it so interesting to see what people carry on them in their daily life and what key products they can't leave the house without. Here I will show you what is in my bag (I cleaned it out specifically for this post!)
