Enticing candles! Review and reveal! Plus a giveaway!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog.

Today’s post is a review and ring reveal for the two enticing candles products I was sent to try.

I got the berry infusion and the coconut paradise ring candles.

The candles cost $52.95, Both with the chance to get a ring worth between $10 and $1150. Overall they are such good value because candles themselves are expensive but you also get the added bonus of exciting presents inside!

So the two rings I got ended up having equal values both being worth $99 so I got way more then my worth. They are both gorgeous rings as well and I picked my size perfect!

These are the rings I got with each candle!

I can definitely see how people get addicted to collecting the rings. The second I saw which rings I got I wanted to buy more candles and bathbombs to try find one worth the most!

They are such a great idea and honestly it’s a win win, even if you get a ring worth $10 you get a beautiful smelling candle!

The candles do take quite a while to get down to the jewellery but you can use tweezers to grab it quicker if you are impatient like me.

Overall I give the candles a 9/10 they could be a little stronger smelling, but they are amazing value, they are beautifully designed and made!

I can definitely see myself collecting more. Has anyone bought one before? What ring did you get? Show me in the comments!

Also I have a giveaway running on my insta!

Hair and Me! Overall review!

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog!

I hope you’ve been liking my posts recently, I’ve been trying to post more often for you guys so let me know what you think.

Recently I was gifted an amazing pack by Hair and me , so I thought I would share what I thought of them, what I recommend and so on!

In my box of goodies, I was given;

– Blonde shampoo and conditioner

– peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner

-peppermint hair mask

– detangler brush

What was my favourite;

I think my favourite would have to be the blonde shampoo and conditioner, it doesn’t overtone my hair but it keeps it nice and bright and also leaves my hair feeling conditioned and supple.

I did love the peppermint shampoo for the change in seasons though, both my partner and I both get a dry flaky scalp in winter ❄️

I noticed a major difference in the amount of dandruff I had after a week of using it as well as the irritation my scalp gets as well. In conjunction with the mask as well my scalp and hair was feeling fresh and new!

I also found using the detangling brush instead of my usual hair brush my hair was easy to brush and was left less frizzy and required less styling. Which is always a plus!

Review;

Peppermint Shampoo and conditioner; 8/10

What I love; it leaves me feeling refreshed and improves my dry flaky scalp.

What I would change; the peppermint scent is really subtle, and I love peppermint so the only thing I would change is more minty fresh 😂

Blonde shampoo and conditioner; 9/10

What I love; it doesn’t overtone my hair and leaves it soft!

What I would change; absolutely nothing, it is perfect!

Peppermint mask; 8/10

What I love; it makes my hair soft fresh.

What I would change; again I would love it to be more minty.

Detangling brush; 9/10

What I love; absolutely everything.

What I would change; nothing. It’s perfect how it is!

Overall, I think the brand is amazing; the products are high quality and look amazing as well.

It is obvious a lot of time and effort was put into creating the products as well as packing them and sending them.

Has anyone tried Hair and me before?

What did you think? Do you have any products you recommend?

Also is there any products or brands you want me to review? Comment to let me know.

Tonight’s blog is about the new Mecca Maxima Banana Bake products that I was lucky enough to be sent to try. So I thought I would share my honest thoughts and review.

For $50AUD The products in the set include;

– Banana bake loose powder

– banana bake setting spray

– bake and set brush

Also available is the Banana bake pressed powder which is $24AUD.

I have tried and used each product available in the Banana bake range and here is what I think of them;

Banana bake loose powder

The banana bake loose powder is a lightweight slightly glowy setting powder, a little goes a long way and it leaves the under eyes area looking smooth and bright.

What I love about it;

It has a glowy finish to make them complexion look fresh.

What I don’t like about it;

I feel like it lowers my concealer coverage under the eyes slightly.

I rate it;

8/10

Banana bake setting spray

The banana bake setting spray is a great way to keep your makeup in place!

What I like about it;

I never get oily when I use it!

What I don’t like about it;

Its main ingredient is alcohol so not so great for any dry skin babes!

I rate it;

5/10

Bake and Set Brush

The bake and set brush is a two sided brush designed to pick up the perfect amount of powder.

What I love about it;

The bristles are soft and it’s so cheap to buy.

What I don’t like;

I wish the fluffy side of the brush was bigger.

I rate it;

8/10

Banana bake pressed powder

The banana bake pressed powder is similar to the loose in the way that it has a glowy finish. I find the powder to be softer and higher in pigment.

What I like about it;

It leaves the skin looking flawless.

What I don’t like about it;

Honestly nothing, the pressed powder doesn’t have the fault that I found in the loose. It doesn’t lower the coverage it actually makes it more full coverage.

I rate it;

10/10

Overall;

The products are beautiful, high quality and so cheap!

Are they worth the buy;

100%, especially either of the powders.

Below I included a picture of me using the powders lightly.

Has anyone had a chance to try the powders?

What did you think of them? Or do you have any other powders you recommend?

Thanks so much for reading. If you liked this post, be sure to follow me to see more!

My Feel Unique Haul and Unboxing ( Review and maybe a giveaway hint ;) )

Hey guys welcome back to my page, I am trying to make my posts more regular for you guys but I’ve been a bit stressed lately and it’s made it hard to get motivated enough to write so I am sorry for my irregular posting!
This posts is about my recent order with Feel Unique which is a UK based retailer that stocks an amazing collection of brands including Sigma, benefit, laura geller, star skin, skyn Iceland, urban decay, bars and so many more of my favourites. 
For my order i picked all things I’ve wanted to try for ages but was hesitant on buying! So to start off I got the sigma detail brushes which includes 8 different brushes that are perfect for any detail obsessed makeup addict; These specifically designed brushes help solve small challenges in makeup application, such as creating a perfectly edged lip, coating lashes from base to tip and applying eyeliner smoothly and evenly. This set is $133 making the brushes about $16 each so I was really happy with price. The brushes themselves are amazing quality and are super easy to clean. 
Next I got the Laura Geller 20th anniversary highlight in the powder which was $21 and this is probably my favourite product I bought, the colour is seriously gorgeous and whenever I wear it I get constant compliments! Sadly the powder is currently sold out but they still have the stick available so I definitely recommend it for anyone who is looking for a bomb AF highlight.  
Next I got the Starskin Hollywood party pack
Each Starskins Hollywood Party Gift Set comes with:
– GLOWSTAR™ Foaming Peeling Perfection Puff 
– After Party™ Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Brightening Face Mask
– Red Carpet Ready™ Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Hydrating Face Mask
– Eye Catcher™ Smoothing Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Eye Mask
– DREAMKISS™ Plumping and Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Lip Mask
– complimentary The Gold Mask™ VIP Revitalizing Luxury Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Face Mask
– STARSKIN headband
The set costs $41 but has over $61 worth of products included. It’s a great way to try a bunch of products a little bit cheaper so you know what you love and want to get again! My top favourites from this set were the eye catcher second skin eye masks and the plumping lip masks. Both gave me a visible instant difference in my appearance. After the lip masks i could definitely see my lips were more plump, it look like I have gotten my lips done again and the swelling had already passed. 
Then I got some gel masks from Skyn Iceland I got the prep for a party set which is $10.40 and comes with;
– A pair of Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels to help firm, tone, brighten and reduce the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles under the eyes.
– A pair of Hydro Cool Firming Face Gels for Smile Lines that helps flatten expression lines while preventing future ones from forming.
– A Hydro Cool Firming Face Gel for Forehead patch that helps visibly fill in forehead creases with a concentrated dose of line-plumping, skin-smoothing, ingredients.
– A plumping gel patch designed to improve the look, definition and overall health lips.
My favourite for this set was the same as the last set the eyes and lip masks just were an absolute winner for me. They were quick and easy to use and gave me results I was really impressed with. 
Then I got the Hoola Bronzer by benefit which was $24.50 and I wasn’t 100% sure on this one. The texture of the bronzer was nice but it was too dark for my skin, I was so sad because I have heard amazing things about Hoola and I really wanted to love it. I do love most benefit products I have tried though. Does anyone have a favourite benefit product I should try? 
Then lucky last I got collistar patch reshaping treatment which is essentially a wrap that is meant to use active ingredients to burn fat and reshape the body. I really wanted to like these as I thought they were a pretty cool idea but I was actually really unhappy with them your meant to be able to wear them all day comfortably for 8 hours, I put one on and you could see it under my clothes even though it was meant to be invisible under clothes and then once I went to take it off it was extremely painful and actually ripped part of my skin off. For about 2 weeks I had raw skin on my stomach so it definitely wasn’t an enjoyable experience for me. 
Has anyone tried them before? Did you have the same issue, or could I have had a dodgy batch. 
So this is the end of my haul review; for the review of the company themselves I think Feel Unique is amazing. They have an amazing range of products that are well priced, they have great deals and specials available and their shipping is so fast. I will definitely be buying from them again! Has anyone shopped with Feel Unique? What did you get? And if you haven’t and your going to, what are you thinking of getting? 
Here is the link if you want to have a look at what they have.

Also I am planning on a giveaway for when I hit 50k on instagram. What should I include? 

My Glambot Vault Haul and experience! 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is about my latest Glambot haul and experience. If you don’t know what Glambot is, it is a website that allows you to sell or buy new and used makeup safely and hygeinically. They always have amazing deals and I have been addicted ever since I found out about them. I have done probably 8 orders with them so far and I always get almost brand new products. This time I got the Glitter Shimmer bundle from the vault and it was $24US for $120 worth of product. They have too faced palettes for $20 and bars or Mac lipsticks for under $10. They are definitely worth checking out. 

I pictured above my haul and I was really happy with it, I got all brands I love!

I got a shadow, a bronzer, glitter pills, a lip pencil, a eyeshadow brush, eye primer and a liner. I was really impressed with the coordination of the products the set looked organised well and generous. I don’t think I have ever made an order that I wasn’t happy with, they have great customer service as well. One of my previous orders I got a Mac lip palette but it had been listed wrong and the colours were different and they reimbursed me for the mistake and let me keep the palette. 

If you want to check them out or do a little shop here is the link; it isn’t a affiliate link and I don’t make any money from you shopping with them. 

Glambot
Has anyone shopped with Glambot before? If so what did you get? I love seeing everyone else’s hauls and hearing about people’s experiences. I personally love Glambot but I want to know what you think of it; what do you love and what don’t you love? 

Also what is your favourite makeup brand? 

New Year, New Me? My Blogging and Personal Goals for this year plus a recap of the year past. 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog, or if this is the first time reading one of my posts then welcome. Today’s post is both playful and serious. Now we are in a new year there are a few things I want to change both blog wise and also in my personal life. Some of the things I aim for this year are things I should have done years ago but I am really hoping this year will be different. Firstly I will start off with a recap of 2016. 

Recap of 2016

So to be blunt this year had its ups and downs, but mainly downs. My mum was diagnosed with cancer and my mental state hasn’t been the best. 

On the upside I’ve got to spend another year with the love of my life, my soul mate. He has been the biggest support to me in every way and I am so lucky to have him in my life. 

Personal Goals

I have a few personal goals for the year. Firstly like most people I want to get in shape this year, though I’m not going to pretend that I am going to cut out all sugar or eat no bad foods (because I really love food 😍 ) but I will try to eat less of the bad stuff. 

Secondly it’s my goal to make a friend this year, a close friend. In the past my anxiety has made it really hard to make friends but I want to change that. I’ve spent too long relying on my boyfriend to talk to, but sometimes you really need another girl to talk to. Someone I can talk makeup with and have a girls night with.  

Lastly, I want to feel confident in my own skin. I want to be able to go to the beach in a bikini without feeling disgusting. I want to be able to show off my scar, because it’s the reason I am here today. I want to embrace my stretchmarks and my cellulite because they are apart of me, and what makes me. 

Blogging Goals

I have a lot of blogging goals for this year but I will keep it short so you guys don’t get bored. 

Firstly, by the end of this year I want to have 45k followers on Instagram and 500 followers on here. I want to focus more of both my blog posts and I want to post regular video reviews, swatches, looks and also my daily life. 

Also, I’ve gotten to work with some really amazing companies in the last year but there are a few companies I am aiming to get to work with by the end of this year. Including Mecca Maxima, Sephora, Colourpop and Becca cosmetics. I recently started working with Bobbi Brown cosmetics and Mac Cosmetics and it is honestly a dream come true, I hope to have some more dreams come true this year. 
Thank you for reading guys, I hope you enjoyed. Let me know what your goals are this year, both blogging and personal. Let me know what you thought of my goals as well. 💕


Clarins Multi active Day and Night Cream. Is this a must have?


I am forever searching for the perfect day and night creams. As a beauty blogger I have tried tonnes, but only ever found a few I would truely recommend. I have been trying out three products from Clarins over the last few weeks including the new multi active Day cream, Multi Active day lotion and Multi Active Night cream.

The first thing I noticed with these creams is how a small amount of cream goes a long way, so keep this in mind if you have these creams or plan on getting them. I find all good quality creams have this, and I believe it is really important in a cream, especially an expensive one. So these creams are quite pricey, the day cream and lotion are $62AUD each and the night cream is $68. All three products have a sort of spicy floral smell (sorry I am terrible at describing smells) as I said before as well, go a long way and they absorb really well as well. I dont find they leave too much of an oily finish, the night cream is a bit oilier then the day cream, which is pretty common.

One thing I really love about this cream is the radiance it gives my skin while using it. Even after a few days of use, I found my skin looked less pale and sickly when I woke up and more bright and fresh.

Overall, I really think these creams are worth the buy, honestly I dont think you need both the day cream and the lotion, the lotion has a less oily feel so if thats something you prefer then the lotion is the better option for you. There is a few options for the day cream you can get an all skin types lotion and cream, combination gel and dry cream. The night has one for combination and dry skin which I think is a great idea for more brands to do as well.

Has anyone tried this cream before? What did you think?

As well guys how much do you normally spend on skincare items, do you want some budget buy ideas for skincare?

Top 5 Setting sprays.. Which is the ultimate favourite?


Hey there guys,

Todays post is a bit of a review of my collection of setting sprays Including; Loreal infallible, Mac fix +, Nyx Matte finish, Trilogy hydrating mist, Maybelline Master fix and Urban Decay all nighter spray.

So firstly, Out of all of these my favourite actually isn’t high end, which I am surprised about.

So firstly I will give my reviews and then I will tell you which is my most and least favourite.

First up Loreal Infallible spray, this spray is seriously amazing, it is my absolute go to setting spray. It keeps me matte and stops my makeup from sliding around on a hot day. I was so impressed with this spray when I got it to try from the Loreal PR team. This spray is completely different to any others I have tried, you need to shake the bottle before you use it as there is a sediment at the bottom. If you don’t shake it you’ll get white spots all over your face so definitely don’t forget to shake.

Secondly is the Mac Fix + I really do like this spray, but I don’t feel much different after it. I don’t know if I am using it wrong or not. If anyone has any tips for fix + I would love to hear them.

Next up is the Nyx Matte Finish spray, I really like this spray it keeps me nice and matte, but I find it doesn’t make my makeup last as long as most other sprays but it definitely keeps me felling refreshed.

Next is the Trilogy hydrating mist. I believe this one is meant to be a setting spray but my skin isn’t a big fan, I sometimes have issues with lavender products so that could be why. if you like scented setting sprays it’ll definitely be something you like.

Next is the Maybelline Master fix spray, this is meant to be a dupe for the mac fix +, It is definitely similar but I don’t think it is a dupe, they are both great in their own way. They are both refreshing and both help set though but seriously nothing beats the Loreal Infallible spray for me. I have never used a spray so perfect for my skin.

I would love to know what you all think of these sprays and what your favourite spray is.

As well I would love to know what you want to see more of on my blog as well.

I am thinking of starting Youtube again, would anyone watch it?
