The Red Puffa Jacket…

Hello,

Hope you are all well. Im sorry I haven’t posted in a few days and honestly I just needed a break from social media and things for a while.

At lot has happened recently in my life some good and some bad.

But one of the things that I have absolutely been loving recently is my brand new red puffa jacket from New Look!

Screen Shot 2017-11-19 at 19.01.49I have wanted one of thee classic coats for a little while now, and now they’ve come back into fashion. Which is amazing for me because it gives me an excuse to buy new clothing! I also managed to get this coat in the sale and paid £33 for it!

This coat is possibly the warmest coat I’ve ever owned and I DO NOT regret buying this one bit!! Ive been wearing it everyday since I bought it, which kinda just shows how much I like it! Its so cosy and the hood acts like a pillow meaning you could just doze off pretty much anywhere, how fab is that?!?

I’m actually pretty pleased with these photos and how they turned out, shoutout to my friend Zoe for giving me a hand with the photography!

Stay happy and be yourself,

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – Review

Here comes yet another beauty review here on my blog!

Today I am reviewing one of my favourite beauty products at the moment.. the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This setting spray has recently made its way into my makeup collection and I couldn’t be happier.

Screen Shot 2017-11-11 at 12.23.06

I purchased this product from Debenham’s store for £23.50 (118ml), which I think is such a good price for the quality of the product! This product feels weightless on your face but is such  a vital product in my makeup routine. The spray helps your makeup stay on all day and all night (up to 16 hours) without melting or fading or smudging. I have quite dry and sensitive skin and this works amazing on my skin. I also have heard from other bloggers and friends of mine that it works on all skin types which is amazing!?!

This product is well known in the blogging community and gets talked about quite a bit, so you’ve probably heard all of this before. I did however realise that when I used this on my halloween makeup looks it still stayed on for ages! Which I think is amazing as a lot of the products I used weren’t the best quality and also not all classic makeup which this is typically used for.

I have heard that the NYX setting spray is also a good drugstore dupe for this UD spray. I may try this and compare the two, if this is something you’d be interested in let me know in the comments below!

Hope you are all having the most fantastic day!

Xlash Product Review

Who doesn’t love long thick lashes!? I know I do! I can’t name a single person that I know who doesn’t want longer lashes!

XLash have kindly sent me some of their products to try out. I thought I would review the products on here as well as my YouTube Channel – Lucy Snewin.

First off the company were a pleasure to work with and were very kind to reach out to me and send me these products. I received the mascara and eyelash serum by Xlash. I love both of these products and have incorporated them into my daily routine for the past month.

Eyelash serum:

The eyelash serum works a dream and is such a good product! It is a sensitive product and didnt cause any irritation in my eyes or skin. This product made my lashes look more fibourous and thicker within the 30 day use and it has become a part of my daily night time routine. This product has really helped treat my lashes and made them fuller and longer which I love!!
Xlash Mascara:

The mascara I was sent has possibly turned into my new favourite mascara. This mascara is enriched with vitamin E and B5 which helps with regrowth of lashes making them longer and fuller. This mascara makes my lashes look so full with just one stroke. The wand is shaped in a curved angle to help with application and also helps ensure every lash gets an even coat!

I have enjoyed working with Xlash cosmetics and will continue to use these products!

My Running Journey…

So a few of my close friends and family may be aware that I am going to be running Brighton’s Half Marathon in February with two of my close friends and considering all things aside, Im not that great of a runner which is what I am trying to work on. I feel like my whole life I have come up with excuses like, “ah my asthma is playing up” or “no, its raining” just to get out of running. But the thing is, once I am out running I love it. It is such a stress relief for me and I really enjoy running (once I start!). I use the app Strava to record al of my runs and this helps me keep on track with my time/distance.

Ive found that If I go running or exercise on a regular basis my mental health is a lot better and I can control it more. When I run I feel a sense of achievement and Im happy about it, by having the goal of this half marathon it gives me something to work towards.

I thought I would start a mini series of how my running journey us going leading up to the half marathon. Let me know if this is something you would like to see on my blog and comment down below anything around fitness/health you would be interested in.

So to start with Im going to say how this week has been for me fitness and running wise. Ive managed to fit in 2 runs this week a 5K and a 6.5K as well as a few Blogilate’s youtube workout videos (which are amazing btw!). Ive been eating healthy on and off this week and that is something I want to work on in the next week and I can let you know how that goes.

Its difficult to fit running in and around 12.5 hour shift placements, and this week coming I think I may struggle… So if you have a

ny motivational thoughts please let me know below and help a gal out!

Also my friend Han is an amazing running and has some amazing inspiration and has a blog too, which you should totally go check it out! – Life with Han. She also has a Youtube channel too!

Naked Heat Palette Review | First Impression

Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 12.53.37

So the new naked palette… Anyone else think its the most gorgeous Urban Decay palette EVER?!?

So Im kind of in love with this new palette of mine and Ive been using it pretty much everyday and for everything! The colours are just so autumnal and so ME! I contemplated buying this with my friend Zoe when we were in Debenham’s when it first came out, but didn’t go for it due to money…

After about an hour of contemplation I got home and ordered it pretty much as soon as my feet got into the house.

Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 12.55.08And oh boy am I pleased with this palette. The colours are so pigmented and blend out so well. You could create endless looks with this palette as I have done, Ive used this for so many of my halloween looks this year which are on my Youtube channel.

The gorgeous brown shades like Chaser, Sauced and Low Blow are such good buildable shades for the crease area and can create such a gorgeous brown smokey eye.

The deeper shades such as He Devil, Cayenne, En Fuego and Ashes can add depth into looks and because the pigment is so good you only have to tap the brush.

I also am beyond in love with the glittery shades from this palette and I have used every single one. My two favourites at the moment are Scorched and Ember, but i still love Lumbre and Dirty Talk don’t get me wrong!

I bought this palette from Debenham’s for £39.50. If you are contemplating buying this palette and love all things autumnal and wintery then I would advise you to get it ASAP! This is probably the best palette I own in my current collection (which is pretty big for me…).

Let me know your thoughts on this palette too!

A Fresh Start…

So here we are yet again typing… but on a different website?

So for a little while I haven’t really been connecting with my blog and I really miss it! I wanted to create something new, something that I can have and cherish as my own little place on the internet. So this is my NEW BLOG!

At the moment I haven’t planned any posts as such but my oh my have I got some in mind. There will be a range of things on here from photo shoot pictures to beauty reviews and possibly a few food recipes, I haven’t quite decided yet. But anyhow I thought I best get on with it.

I also have a Youtube channel and am currently almost about to hit 1K which is crazy as I  only started my channel back in April 2017!

I hope you are all well and please support me throughout my journey. Screen Shot 2017-10-27 at 22.24.12
