Mini ASOS Beauty Haul


A 30% off sale on all beauty products on the ASOS website? How could you resist a small (or big) splurge?! Of course I took advantage of the sale (and my bank balance!) and had to pick up a few pieces for myself! I've been doing a lot of overtime at work so I thought why not treat myself with a few new beauty products.

I really wanted to pick up the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation but as I have never tried it before, I didnt want to risk getting a colour which could end up being too light or dark for my skintone so will pick it up next time I take a trip to Space NK to make sure I get the right colour but I did pick up a few pieces from Maybelline, Bourjous and Benefit! 

Bourjois Happy Light Foundation

I have been wanting to try this foundation for so long but had trouble finding it anywhere so when I found it in the sale on ASOS I had to purchase it! I ended up ordering the perfect shade too - so lucky! I have been really liking it so far and will probably do a full review on it soon so keep an eye out in the coming weeks!

Benefit Primping With The Stars

I own two of the samples of Benefits Rollerlash that recently came free with Elle Magazine and I love it and I don't own anything else by Benefit until this! I have really wanted to try their They're Real Mascara for so long and when I saw this mini set on ASOS I had to buy it especially getting five of their other top products! I have tried the Porefessional so far and am really liking it! Can't wait to try the rest of the things in this set.

Barry M Basecoat, Top Coat and Nail Hardener All in One

I am a huge fan of Barry M and being someone who likes to use a basecoat and top coat and being someone who suffers from brittle nails - I am loving this all in one nail product! 

Maybelline Baby Lips in Hydrate

I read so many great reviews about the Maybelline Baby Lips range so really wanted to try one out. work as a cashier in retail so I am often very busy so I need an easy to apply lip product when my lips are feeling dry when I'm working! I have been using this so much already in the two days since it arrived and am loving it so much!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I didn't really need new mascara but what can u do when they are on offer in a sale?! I am really glad I did buy it as I really do like it! I'm not surprised though as I think Maybelline mascara a are great - my favourite is their falsies one which I first tried about two years ago thanks to Tanya Burr! I will do a full review in a few weeks time! 

Have you tried any of their products - I would love to hear your reviews on them!

Very's Summer Pool Party + Meeting Tanya Burr!


As some of you may know, Very held a competition last week to win a pair of tickets to their #cantwaitforsummer pool party which also included a meet and greet with Youtuber and Blogger sensation, Tanya Burr. Being a massive fan of Tanya (and Very!), I had to enter, although I had no intention of winning so when I found out I had won one of the ten pairs of tickets, I was very (no pun intended) excited!

The party was held at the Haymarket Hotel, which is a short walk from Charing Cross Station and an easy journey for us as we only live a 20-minute train journey into Central London. I took along my sister with me so it was a really lovely girlie evening for us.

The night consisted of free cocktails and food and in attendance was - of course - a few celebs which included Lauren Pope and Amy Childs from TOWIE and Danny from McFly so we spent the night very starstruck. We also got to meet Niomi Smart, who was very lovely, and had some selfies taken with her. Meeting Tanya was probably my favourite part of the night. Instead of a normal meet and greet, all of the competition winners were taken into a room in the hotel where we all sat around with Tanya and she spoke to all of us, as well as answering any questions we had. She was really lovely. We also had a group photo taken as well as individual photos with Tanya.

After the meet and greet, we were allowed to go back into the party where we got another drink before heading home. Throughout the night we were encouraged to tweet using the hashtag #cantwaitforsummer and we could get a free gift if we did! The gifts we could chose from included headphones and a Marc Jacobs perfume as well as an iPod and a Philips facial cleansing brush. My sister chose the iPod and I chose the Philips facial cleansing brush. We were really shocked that we could just chose a gift - we thought you would win one in another competition not just get them given for free so that was a lovely surprise to end an amazing evening!

What I wore: Dress and Jacket - Primark and Shoes - Forever 21
