Super exciting Spectrum Saturday πŸ›

So today has been a bit of a mad one. One of my favourite brands happens to be owned by two fabulous Welsh girls ‘Spectrum’ make up brushes 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿. So when the girls announced they would be doing a sample sale it was a no brainer for me! They’re offices are based just over an hour away but honestly things like this do not happen in Wales πŸ˜‚. So 9.30am this morning we set off to Penarth thinking we would be one of the first few… we we so wrong.

The queue was huge, we totally underestimated it as did the girls (Sophie & Hannah the owners, who are so lush btw). Now I’m not the the most patient of people I will be the first to admit but all the girls in the queue were so excited for this time went quickly, it was pretty cold but honestly all we did was laugh! 3.5 hours later (my feet were freezing) we got in. The office I’ve seen from the girls snap is so lush and it really is. So colourful and stylish πŸ’“. The room with all the stock was super busy but everyone just excited and showing each other things. I did actually set myself a Β£40 budget and stuck to it, proud moment πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ.

Here is what I got below and I am obsessed, my spectrum collection is now huge and I love them all! You NEED to try these brushes if you haven’t already there vegan friendly also. Love love love all the colours πŸ’—πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ–€.

What a Saturday, so worth it even if it did take up all my day and honestly I’ve laughed all day. Major thank you again to the spectrum sisters absolutely slaying and flying the flag for the Welsh #GIRLBOSS.

Hope everyone has a lush weekend.

First Look Fantastic Delivery πŸ’Œ

Hi lovelies, I hope everyone is having a good start to the week.

So last week I signed up for two subscription boxes. One was Birchbox and one Look Fantastic.

The look fantastic one arrived first and first impressions were good, I love pretty packaging. Loved the Elle magazine and just all around presentation was great. Below is what I got.

The first thing that I got was a Morphe mini highlighter in ‘spark’. I have a Morphe eyeshadow pallet and are familiar with the brand, great quality for even better prices. I have never tried any other products though so I’m excited to try this. Its a lovely golden colour so excited to try this one 😍.

The second product is Omorovicza cleansing foam. I’ll be honest I’ve never heard of the brand but always willing to try new thingsπŸ€—. It contains white lupin to energise the skin. Let you know how this one goes.

Third product us The Ordinary hyaluronnic acid 2% + B5. I have recently discovered this brand and I’m obsessed with the niacinamide and zinc so excited to try another product from these guys!

The next is a rituals of sakura soothing hand balm. I love to keep a hand cream at my desk so this will be my new addition. It contains shea butter and organic rice milk πŸ’“.

Next we I got a Madara smart anti-pollution charcoal and mud repair mask. Now I LOVE a face mask so this is exciting. I haven’t heard of the brand so excited to try, I have a charcoal and a mud mask but both together sounds great!

Finally we have a EOS lip balm πŸ’•. Also obsessed with lip balms and I’ve always loved the look of a EOS so I’m excited to try. Love that it’s organic and natural too.

I’ll let you know how I get on with these products. If you have used them please let me know any tips or feedback 😘.

First ever #pinkwednesday

Ok while creating my first #pinkwednesday I realised my lack of pink skincare products (well packaging) something I can work on πŸ’ΈπŸ’•.

Make up, no problem lots of pink there which I’m sure will feature in my next pink post.

I haven’t actually tried the origins mask.. I normally mask on a Sunday so this might be a first try this week. I’ll let you know how it goes.

I’ve mentioned it below but I really can’t praise Spectrum brushes enough. This is just a few of many but they are just lush! They’re super soft, design is amazing and also cruelty free. I’m already thinking of my next purchase. “So fetch”. The below are from the mean girls collection so very appropriate today.

Hope everyone’s had a lovely Wednesday 😚.

Self care is Skin care πŸ§–πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

So here goes… I have been thinking of doing this forever and am finally in that “why the hell not” mood πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ. So I am just your average 20 something girl who had a make up obsession which soon turned into a skincare obsession. If I thought my make up habbit was expensive well the skincare one is worse!

I know that glow is in, but my glow has never been out! I have the world’s most oily skin (maybe a slight exaggeration πŸ€”) but that’s how it feels. Everyone I tell is like “well that’s good less wrinkles”. Well yes that is an advantage but looking shiny 24/7 is not a look I enjoy. I also am so prone to a breakout, lucky me eh? Stress, bad eating, sun, alcohol…you name it pays me a little visit on my face. So I decided about a year and a half ago to swerve the make up counters and focus on skincare. So here we are, about to try and control the shine and keep the glow to a minimum when required.

I’ll keep you posted…
