NEW: Oh K! Korean Beauty Products Review






Meet Oh K! The only essentials beauty and lifestyle range you'll ever need!

Oh K! was inspired by their love for Korea, by capturing the essence of K beauty style along with a cute colour scheme and quirky packaging and cute characters.

An interesting fact, Koreans take great pride in their appearance and are very passionate about beauty products, so much that they are atleast 12 years ahead of the rest of the world in beauty innovation!! Seeing the products and reading their descriptions, I can definitely see how innovative it is and boy! Am I excited to try it out, especially the face masks since I am a huge face mask junkie.

Recently I was lovingly sent a fair amount of beauty bits to try out and you can see how insta-worthy all the products are!

Panda animal sheet face mask - £4.00*
This mask promises to rehydrate and smooth out the skin as well as adding dewy radiance back into the skin. I am so excited to try this one out as it sounds like the perfect mask! Something I would definitely go for and how cute is that panda?

Character Lip Balm Duo - £8.95*
The cutest pair of lipbalms ever! One is a cat and the other is a bear *awws* both balms are dome shaped and are easy and fun to use. Cotton candy and White peach are the flavours which makes it much more fun than the usual strawberry lip balm, definitely one of my favourites!

Exfoliating Face Pads - £5.00*
Each pack contains two pads, get super soft skin by using your favourite daily cleanser with these pads, it will definitely help by removing more dead skin cells and it will stimulate microcirculation too! Win! These pads are reusable and should be an essential in your skincare routine.

Mini Tattoos - £4.00*
THE CUTEST! These mini tattoos are so fun and cute, now you can wear cute lil designs without pain or commitment. The designs include: stars, clouds and bows! You can really have fun with this and make a statement!

This is just a sample of what Oh K! Have to offer, there's even a cat trinket tray, scented erasers, mini coloured pencils necklace and much more! I know I will be splurging on more of the items.

Check out the Oh K! website here - link and I am happy to say that you can easily find Oh K! products in Boots! check out the range here! - link

My Top Five Budget Highlighters





Swatches from top to bottom: NYX Liquid Illuminator, Technic Get Gorgeous, Miss Beauty London Illuminating Wand, Revlon Photoready Instafix Highlighting Stick and Bourjois Illuminating Touch💖

Using a highlighter always completes my everyday look, I just cannot stop using the stuff. I LOVE dewy finishes and anything to make me look glowy and healthy is always a must!
I have a round up of my top five budget friendly highlighters that I use regularly and in rotation depending on my mood. Read on to see why you need to add these into your collection!

NYX Liquid Illuminator
A firm favourite of mine. This gorgeous pearly pink highlight is the perfect dupe for the NARS illuminator. The texture is creamy and oh-so light weight, it also leaves your cheekbones with a perfect glistening glow. The highlight itself contains tiny, refined specks of silver sparkle. If you are looking for the ultimate princessy highlight then this is the product to go for.

Technic Get Gorgeous
This baked powder highlight is truly something! The powder is finely milled and is very silky and smooth to touch, I was amazed at the pigmentation of this one so you only need a little bit but can be buildable depending on how you like your highlight to be. This has more of a metallic sheen than shimmer and should be one to try since it's so affordable!

Miss Beauty London Illuminating Wand
Want to try a highlighter for the first time? then this one is the one you need! I loved how easy it was to apply because I was in control and I was able to blend and build up the coverage. This gives a more natural glow and I love using this on days when my make-up is more subtle. Want to know the best thing? It only costs a £1!!

Revlon Photoready Instafix Highlighting Stick
Here is a highlighter that comes in a stick form, so so easy to apply and really handy for on the go and when I need to do my face in like less than 10 minutes! This highlighter is more of a golden shade and my first ever golden highlighter too! The creamy formula easily glides onto my cheekbones and leaves behind radiance and sparkle too! 

Bourjois Illuminating Touch
Lastly the cutest ever compact you've ever seen! I reach out for this highlighter on days when I need that extra sparkle, this powder highlight has a tiny amount of light pink pigment but has a huge amount of sparkle and glitz. Out of the five I would have to say that this has the most amount of glitter.



What is your favourite highlighter at the moment?

Brand Spotlight: Technic Cosmetics






Technic Cosmetics is a brand I have seen many times, either on the internet or in stores, but hasn’t been a brand I have really tried before, you can usually find Technic Cosmetics in Bodycare stores and online, you can check the full range out here - link
Their aim is to offer women a range of high quality but affordable products; so their ranges include everything from colour correctors to nail polish to makeup brushes, not to mention they have their version of the famous Naked palettes. I was lovingly sent a bunch of products to try and I have been putting these to the test, read on to see my mini-reviews too.

What I was sent:
Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder in 24ct Gold 
Colour Correcting Setting Powder in Yellow 
Mega Lash Mascara in Black 
Brow Pen in Medium Brown 
Eyeshadow Primer For Shimmery Eyeshadows 


First up, the Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder, boy oh boy does this product mean business!! Not only does the colour actually resemble 24ct gold but the pigmentation and the long lasting finish makes this a product that will question all the high end highlighters out there! I love wearing this since this adds a bit of warmth to my skintone but with an added sparkle. This hasn't left my make-up bag yet and the cute ripple-like design sure makes this an eye-catching product too!

My base will be all kinds of perfection, thanks to the Colour Correcting Setting Powder in Yellow. I usually go for the dewy look and finish off my base with a setting spray but this is definitely a game changer. Not only does this effortlessly set your make-up but it also colour corrects it too. The yellow tone is said to correct and conceal any redness and pink undertones. It can also be used to highlight and sculpt parts of your face too! What I personally love about this product is that it can suit a variety of skintones and can be a possible dupe for the Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder.

I was so glad to be sent the Mega Lash Mascara in Black, I only go for mascaras that can give my lashes that oomph! This one beautifully separates and lifts my lashes but without any clumping. The jumbo packaging definitely matches the finish that this product gives, 2 coats and POW! Your lashes are super long and ready.

Using brow products are a must! Since having good and groomed brows can really frame your face, I was sent a Brow Pen but I was sceptical as to how it would work, I didn't really get on with brow pens before since it feels like a marker and you would essentially be drawing your brows on. This was different though. All I did was light flicks to fill in any sparse areas and it actually looked ok. I am still in the middle of using this but I will be sure to review this in more depth later on.

What a gem of a product! I am a magpie when it comes to shiny and shimmery make-up so the Eyeshadow Primer was something I definitely would of bought. I like that this eye primer has a twist to it, it's actually made for just shimmery eyeshadows and is said to really give your shimmer eyeshadows that extra depth,colour and long wearing time. I think you could even get away with wearing this alone too, just like a liquid eyeshadow. The actual primer itself contains shimmer so it would SO give your chosen eyeshadow some extra glitz.

Overall I am so impressed and happy with the products, Technic chose to send me. I cannot wait to review each item thoroughly and really put it to the test. I think my favourites out of the range has to be the eyeshadow primer and the highlighter. 

What do you think of these products?

Flutter Perfect Blush Review




It's officially the first day of Spring today and seeing the sun shining and pink blossoms on the trees has truly got me excited for Summer! In Spring I love to wear alot more pink hues and I love sporting a pink cheek and lip.
I picked up this cute Flutter blush in Superdrug and I have to admit I picked it because of the cute packaging and the lil gold hearts.
I am currently using this and boy! Does this product have good pigmentation!

Product description:
For a natural glow add a pretty flush of colour to your cheeks with this soft Flutter Blush. Complete with beautiful packaging for a cute gift idea.

The cute packaging definitely does catch your eye and the compact is very travel friendly! It's sturdy and when you open it, you'll find a mini mirror inside it too.
Once you open the compact you are greeted with the most cutest pink blusher ever! The very bubblegum pink is so pretty and has shimmery gold hearts printed on the top. I just wished the gold hearts were running through the whole blusher instead of just being on the top because once you swirl your brush on the top, the design vanishes but despite this the actual pink colour is quite stunning and shimmery too.
I was amazed at the colour pay off too, seeing as I only paid £3 for this I wasn't expecting much but just product that screams 'fun factor' and to prettify my make-up bag contents.

When I wear this, it gives my complexion that luminosity and it makes me look oh-so glowy and healthy. I am so glad I picked this up. I wasn't able to find it in Superdrug again but if you are wanting to buy one then you can do so here - link

What's your favourite Spring blush?

DIY: Vintage Floral Nail Art








After using Renunail my nails have become much more stronger and longer, I am so happy that I can finally do some nail art and today I'll be showing you how to create this floral nail design which is as easy as 123! So here's how I painted mine!

What you'll need:
Blue nail polish
Different Pink and Red nail polishes
Green nail polish
Topcoat
Dotting tool/thin brushes
  1. Begin by painting your base colour, I opted for a pastel blue colour. Paint and leave to dry.
  2. Take a medium pink and paint some rough circles on each nail.
  3. Using a light pink and red polish, paint little strokes inside of the medium pink circle to add depth and to suggest petals. Adding reds and light pinks really framed and finished off the flowers
  4. Paint two small leave shapes with a green polish on each flower.
  5. Once you are happy with the flowers, seal your designs well with a topcoat to protect it.

I really hope you like it! I can't stop looking at my nails! I also cannot wait to do more nail polish reviews and nail art projects since my nails are in much better condition.

Mini Lush Haul




💖😻 Products featured:
Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb £4.25
Milky Bath Bubble Bar £3.75
Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb £1.95

It was that time again. Seeing as I had finished my lil stock of Lush bath products, I needed to stock up and buy some newbies that I haven't tried before.

Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb
I have been meaning to pick this one up for a while now and after reading so many lovely reviews, I knew I had to pick it up at my next trip. This bath bomb is a rose lover's dream. This contains yellow rose petals, rose oil and rose absolute. The outer shell breaks away and petals are dispersed everywhere, also can we just talk about how pretty the bath bomb looks?! So Insta-worthy!


How CUTE is this bubble bar?! I was sold at the amazingly clever name and design of this product and I am actually very excited to use this. Though the product isn't exactly 'fun' this bubble bar boasts of a more skin benefiting experience. This contains uplifting orange oil, soya milk and cocoa butter to give your skin some major TLC. This smells like baby fabric softener and I know this will work a treat on my dry skin.

Check this lil bot out! I picked this one up to try even though it's aimed for kids. This contains lavender essential oils which is perfect to relax and unwind in. It's also great for soothing any skin irritations too! This turns the bath water into a calming pastel blue and for only £1.95 you really cannot go wrong. 

What have you picked up at Lush lately?

NEW IN | Candy Crush Lipbalms






Have I got an interesting launch to share with you today! The very popular game Candy Crush has just launched four candy flavoured lipbalms!
Yep, four delicious flavours that are based on the game. I was lovingly sent two flavours to try out and I could not wait to share my thoughts with you.

There are four flavours to choose from: Bubblegum Bridge, Chocolate Mountains, Peppermint Palace and Lemonade Lake. I was sent Bubblegum Bridge and Peppermint Palace.

I am LOVING the packaging! The cute and quirky design definitely catches your eye and would definitely brighten up your make-up bag too!
These balms have got a creamy formula that glides so effortlessly across the lips, my lips got an instant hydration boost and they felt oh-so soft and moisturised.
The Peppermint Palace has to be my favourite out of the two, since this one gives my lips that slight tingly sensation and the scent is spot on!
These lipbalms have certainly got a novelty factor and will definitely give your lips a sweetly scented glaze. It sits comfortably on the lips but don't expect it to heal chapped lips instead expect a quick fix of hydration with a subtle shine.
Just like playing Candy Crush on the go, these lipbalms are perfect for when you're on the move and in need of a quick moisture fix. I currently have Bubblegum Bridge in my make-up bag and I love wearing it daily before applying my favourite lipstick.

Available at all Primark stores for only £1.50* each!

What do you think of these cute and new launches?

Cute Poundland Haul




Products featured💕:
Barry M lipgloss tube
Garnier intense care cream for the face,body and hands
I Love... Honey almond shower cream
Montagne Jeunesse White Chocolate face mask
Fluffy eye mask
Make Up Gallery silver glitter eyeliner

It has been a while since I last featured some cute bits from Poundland and I was definitely due a trip.
I think this particular haul beats all of the previous ones since I was able to get my paws on some of the leading brands in beauty and each item only costed me a mere pound!

You should always browse the make-up section because you are bound to find some hidden gems. I was so happy when I found a Barry M lipgloss, it's the perfect milky pink that I know I am going love and wear every single day. 
I also picked up a gorgeous silver glitter eyeliner from Poundland's very own make up brand - Make Up Gallery. The collection itself looks great and I am a huge fan of their nail polishes too!

Skincare wise, I picked up a cute pink Garnier cream that can be used on the face, body and hands. I've already tried a bit and it smells divine! Just like fresh roses. I know I'm going to be keeping this in my handbag.
I also picked up a Montagne Jeunesse white chocolate face mask because a) I'm a hugeee fan of this brand and b) you can never have too many face masks at hand, perfect for pamper seshs!
Lastly what caught my eye was the bottles of body wash by I Love... I have seen these cutely scented body products in Superdrug and this 250ml sized bottle sells for £2.99. I love the scent of this one, so comforting and I love honey/almond scented body care products.
I also forgot to add that the cute and fluffy eyemask went straight into my basket, because it would of been rude not to buy it. I also may seem to like collecting eye masks *hides away*

What do you think of my Poundland finds?

The Cutest Cake Shop EVER - Peggy Porschen










If I had to describe this cake shop then I would say it's the girliest and the dreamiest of all! Like seriously this place is cake shop goals! I have been wanting to visit Peggy Porschen for a while and I am so glad I finally got the chance to try some of their glorious handmade cakes and sip a tea or two.

I absolutely loved how this cute lil cake shop was tucked away from the hustle and bustle of London. The seating area is very cozy and there are so many cute things to look at whilst you are waiting for your order. Gifts galore and amazing edible treats were all displayed and I was just gazing away at all of the iced biscuits which infact is my weakness.
I visited Peggy Porschen towards the end of February so there were still some Valentine's
day themed cookies left and I of course had to purchase a big ol' heart cookie, because hello! Look at how instagrammable it is!

Me and the hubby definitely wanted to take some treats away with us since we had to drive back to Birmingham. I opted for the Lemon, Raspberry and Rose Layer cake slice while the hubby chose a cute lil Banoffee cupcake. Both cakes were scrumptious and well, the cakes didn't last long either.

I definitely recommend visiting Peggy Porschen, perfect for girly catch ups with tea, a date or to even grab some cake slices on the go.

Have you visited Peggy Porschen?
