Zoella Beauty 'Blissful Mistful' Body Mist




Everyone has probably heard of Zoella's beauty line - Zoella Beauty - by now - I mean, if you haven't then where have you been? So, when Zoe's beauty range was released in September last year, I had to buy something from the line and picked up the Soap Opera bath soak and shower cream (which I done a review on here) and also really wanted to pick up this - the body mist but everywhere I tried had sold out so I put it on my Christmas list and I got it as one of my presents from my parents.

Its a lovely fairly sweet scent and it comes in a small square glass bottle. The packaging is typical of the whole range - pastel pink, polka dots and the body mist has a rose gold lid which is typical Zoe Sugg style and of course not forgetting her signature logo on the front of the bottle. The size of the bottle is fairly petite and is the perfect size to fit in a handbag to top up throughout the day.

Have you tried anything from Zoe's beauty line?

My Pamper Evening Essentials



Everyone needs a pamper evening every now and again. I usually have one when I'm feeling a little stressed out or when I want a little 'me time'. I love to just relax and have an hour or two to just unwind and relax.

Skincare

Skincare is very important part of my everyday routine but if I have a little extra time or feel like my skin needs a little TLC then instead of just the normal facial cleaner followed by moisturizer, I tend to add a face scrub and face mask to my routine. My favourite face scrub at the moment is the Yes To Tomatoes Combination Skin Scrub which is light scrub which a subtle sweet fragrance. I always take my make-up off at the end of the day (or sometimes when I get home if I know I am not going out again) and my favourite facial wipes are of course the Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Wipes. I have used them for years and feel that are the best ones as they are great for sensitive skin and are amazing at taking off even waterproof mascara!

Bath

A lovely bath is always a good way to relax and adding a bath bomb is great for a pamper evening. The ones from Lush are amazing (as everyone knows!) I got given this one as a gift for Christmas from my sister and its the Christmas Pudding one which was obviously part of their festive collection. I cannot wait to use it! My favourite body wash is the shower butter from Soap and Glory. Its very much the same consistency as a body lotion but is used a wash. Like every other product by Soap and Glory - this is amazing! After I use the Smoothie Star Bodycream - also by Soap and Glory and equally as amazing.

Music, Magazines and Books (and YouTubers)

After (and during) my evening I usually sit down with either a good book/magazine or sit down and catch up on some of my favourite YouTubers! My current favourite book is Girl Online by Zoe Sugg (AKA Zoella). This book is a great read, I am about half way through and I am really enjoying it - I wont give away any spoilers so far in case anyone is reading it. My favourite magazines include Vogue, InStyle, Look and Heat. For YouTubers, my favourites are Zoella, Tanya Burr, Niomi Smart. Lily Melrose, SacconeJolys, Anna Saccone and Suzie from Hello October!

Other Essentials

Candle - My current favourite is Yankee Candle's Clean Cotton which is a lovely fresh scent.
Cosy Pyjamas
Lip Scrub/Vaseline - Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub
Nail Varnish

What are your pamper evening essentials?

New Year, New Hair

Apologies for the rubbish quality photos - and the fact that I look like a ghost! - but I really wanted to write a post about my new shorter hair! I got it cut this afternoon and after having my hair long for ages, I really fancied a change and what better time than the start of the new year! I knew I wanted it shorter but a cut that I can still style easily - from curling/waving to a simple pony.

My main inspiration for my new shorter 'do' came from Taylor Swift! I absolutely love Taylor - her music, her style and of course her shorter hairstyle - that she has had sported since February last year so I'm a little late on that bandwagon ha! Anyway  you will probably see clearer pics in future posts but here's a sneak peek.

Oh, and how do you like my new layout! Its the VIVA VIVA template by pipdig! Its a lovely simple layout and I love it!

'Head Over Heels' Topshop Cream Blush




So last week, my sister and I decided to head over to do some sales shopping in Westfield Stratford City and obviously a shopping day is not complete without a little trip into Topshop! I really love their lipsticks (not a huge fan of their nail polishes though) but I've really wanted to get my hands on one of their blushes as I have heard - or read! - so many great things about them so when I saw this - Head Over Heels Blush - in a mini set with Topshop's Wicked Lipstick - I had to buy it! Not to mention the set was six pounds for both the blush and lipstick! Bargain!

First things first, I am totally won over with any makeup that comes in cute packaging and how cute is the packaging of this blush? Plus the fact that it also comes with a mirror is brilliant. The pan of the blush is also great as its big enough so you can use any brush that you prefer.

'Head Over Heels' is a beautiful pink/coral which would make the perfect summer blush although as its new I couldn't resist using it now even though its only January! It is a cream blush which is one that I have never tried before but I really like it. It very pigmented so you do need to be careful when applying. I apply it lightly to the the apples of my cheeks using the Real Techniques Blush Brush and it gives a natural peachy glow.

So overall I really love the shade and am looking forward to collecting some of the other Topshop shades and wearing it more throughout the next few months and of course, into the summer!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


Jumper/Primark
Skirt/New Look
Tights/Primark
Necklace/New Look

I cannot believe that we are now in 2015! 2014 went by in a flash and now I cannot wait for what this new year has in store. 2014 was such a whirlwind year but I also had some really great moments including meeting The Vamps twice! Me and my sister are huge fans of them so it was amazing to meet them once, let alone twice!

NYE is always the same every year but I love it - we hold a family meet up at our house and just sit and catch up, listen to great music and obviously eat delicious food! My family usually arrive around 8:30 and then end up staying till 2am which was no different last night, Like every year I always buy something new to wear and I usually end up wearing the same outfit on Christmas Day night and NYE and this years outfit was this; a black turtleneck jumper from Primark, a gingham check skirt from New Look, plain black tights from Primark and a statement necklace from New Look. As I am usually at home for New Year, I don't tend to "dress up" - I like to keep it simple but nice!

I don't tend to do many outfit photos as I never feel they turn out great so I took these photos on my new iPad mini and was the photo created by using the picstitch app.

Hope everyone had an amazing NYE and are looking forward to 2015!
