My September Birch Box

Hey everyone, this week I recieved my first Birch Box - it happened to be their birthday box as well (Happy Birthday Birch Box!!!)


First off, how cute is the box!! Will definately be re using that. 

It comes with the sample products & a little booklet which explains birch box and tells you the price of the full size products you receive.

I found this part exciting, opening the cute little
bag - so here's the products:

The Birchbrush £5.99 (basically a mini tangle teezer)
-this is a birch box exclusive and i was so happy when I got it because I'd actually lost my tangle teezer!
-it's nice and small so I can pop it in my school bag!

Laura Mercier Facial Polish (£26 full size)
-This is an exfoliator, it involves micro beads which "gently buffs away dead skill cells while the rich formulation leaves skin purified and hydrated"
-I've used this once so far and it left my skin feeling amazing!

John Masters Organics Detangler (£16 full size)
- "wave goodbye to knots and tangles with this little miracle worker!" ~ booklet
- It has Coconut oil and wheat amino acids which help to nourish your hair whilst neroli and grapefruit soothes the scalp + makes it smell fab!

Laqa & Co Cheeky Lip Pencil in Cray Cray (£17)

- This product is for your lip and cheeks however I'll probably stick to using it on my lips. It's very pigmented however it looks a lot brighter in the picture!
-Will definitely be wearing this more in the summer!

Beauty Protector Body Wash (£8)

-This body wash smells amazing!! It's so soft on my skin and leaves a scent for ages!

Finally, my favourite product:

Benefit the POREfessional: licence to blot  (£15.50 full size)
- As I have oily skin this product jd perfect for me! All you do is dab it on your oily/shiny bits of skin and it mattifys it! 
- Also, at this rate it looks like it's going to last for ages!

So that's what I recieved in my Birch Box! I think they're such a great idea and you get to try loads of new, different products!

Thankyou for reading,

My Makeup Storage

Hey everyone so today I'm going to show you my makeup storage, it's not much but a few of you have been asking for it!

First, I store my everyday makeup in a display case sort of thing on my dressing table - it's off Amazon and it's really affordable, you can get it here!

This was my favourite ever purchase and compared to others I found its so adorable!

It holds loads and looks gorgeous!

I then, have the 5 Alex Drawers from Ikea which so many people have and I can understand why!

I know these aren't cheap, especially the 9 drawers but they're such good quality and look really nice!

I don't have much makeup and so far have only got some in the top two drawers.

Here's the top drawer, it has all my eye, lip and powder products.

 I use cutlery trays from IKEA to keep everything sorted, i use these instead of separate boxes or proper makeup trays because these were so cheap, the one above is 50p! (check it out here)  and they do the same job! Also, I use these drawer dividers also from IKEA, these are really handy and also really cheap (3 for £1.50!) 

My second drawer has all my foundations and concealers and then all the testers I have of perfumes etc

This white tray is another cutlery tray and is great for these drawers! (Find it here)

The third drawer doesn't really have makeup in but it was my nail polishes in a cute little box from IKEA and in the drawer dividers I just have nail clippers and scissors then just health things that help with braces and hay fever etc and finally some empty Mac boxes

In the last two drawers I just have loads of bath and body products I don't use and they're really messy but I'm hoping one day that all five drawers will be full with makeup!

If you see a product that you would like a review on or to know more about then just comment below or tweet me!

Thankyou for reading!

August Favourites

Hey everyone, how is it September already!? This years going way too quick. So im here with my favourite things from August!


MUA's Pro Base Prime and Conceal in Green


If you have redness I highly recommend this product! It's the best product I've found that actually hides my redness! - I did a full review of it here 
Maybelline Master Sculpt
I purchased this a couple months ago but it's still my favourite contouring kit! It also has highlighter which is a bonus! It's so pigmented so a little goes a long way. It also comes with a mirror and a brush all in a little compact so can fit perfectly in your makeup bag!

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

First off, how gorgeous is this! This highlighter is so pigmented so again, a little goes a long way! It's really affordable  and makes your skin look glowing!

Cactus's (bit weird I know)


I have been loving Cactus's this month! I have four around my room, if you're read my room tour post you'll see. I think they really suit it and it's good to have some life! The big one is from Homebase and the three mini ones are a set from IKEA. Cactus's are an affordable way to decorate your room and brighten it up!

Drag me down - One Direction

If you don't know already I love One Directiom and I have done since X factor! But their new song is defo my fave of them all! It's more or less been on repeat since it came out at the start of August! I can't wait to see them live again at the end of October!

And my last favourite, Paper Towns

I saved this book to read on holiday and I wanted to read it before I saw the film! I knew I'd enjoy it because John Green is my favourite author! The book was better than the film, I felt that the film went to quick and they didn't include some of the little details. Obviously, if you go see the film without reading the book that won't bother you! The film was also made more funny. Despite this, THE ENDING OMG, if you've seen the film or read it you'll understand my frustration! It just can't end like that! It really irritated me! Apart from that, I do recommend the book and the film!

So they're my favourites from August! Let me know what you've been loving this month! 

Also, I go back to school tomorrow and as I'm going into Year 11 I'll have loads of
revising and homework to do. Therefore I might not upload as many blog posts as I have been in the holidays however I do want to try and upload definitely once a week!

Thankyou for reading,
