My Top 10 Favourite Blogs


There are so many wonderful bloggers out there, which is why I'm going to find it really hard to narrow it down to 10.
But I wanted to share with you some of my favourite blogs to read. Most are beauty and fashion related, some are spoonie related, and some are a mix of all 3! Have a little read if you haven't read these blogs already! I hope you enjoy. :)

Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set



After hearing (and reading!) so many great things about the Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set, I had to go out and buy them. Not only are they so beautiful to look at, they're great quality. 
I purchased this set from the Zoeva website for €65.

I don't like to buy too many new brush sets, since I love my Real Technique brushes so much, but the rose gold handles caught my eye and I knew i had to have them, especially after all the reviews i'd read. And since buying them, I've hardly used anything else! 
(which is why they are so well used and dirty in the pictures!)

The set includes a range of 8 essential face and eye brushes, (natural and synthetic) and a travel bag. 

The Powder Brush: for applying lose and pressed powder.
The Silk Finish Brush: for applying and blending foundation.
The Face Shape Brush: which is great for contouring.
The Luxe Sheer Cheek Brush: which is used to apply blusher.
The Concealer Buffer: which helps to apply and blend your concealer.
The Soft Definer: which helps to apply, blend and smooth eyeshadow.
The Petite Crease Brush: for blending eyeshadow into your crease.
The Wing Liner Brush: which applies your eyeliner with great precision, and it also helps to create the perfect wing. 

My favourites to use are the Silk Finish Brush, it leaves my skin looking so well blended and natural. The Petite Crease brush, i find it's the perfect size and shape for my crease. And the Wing Liner Brush, I'm terrible at applying eyeliner in general, let alone a wing! But this brush is so small and precise and really comfortable to hold, that I actually enjoy applying eyeliner with this brush!

Have you got the Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set? What do you think?

Origins 10 Minute Mask To Rescue Problem Skin



I've been having lots of problems with my skin recently, i'm thinking it may have something to do with my diet over the Christmas period! I don't usually eat a lot of sugary or carby foods, but over Christmas, I did treat myself a little bit!

Just before Christmas I did a small Boots shop, to try out some new skincare, and i decided to try out the Origins Out of Trouble 10 minute mask, to rescue problem skin. It cost me £23.
I'd just like to say that I have combination skin, I may of explained this in a previous post, but i have an oily t-zone (mainly my nose) but I can also get dry patches, I also have very sensitive skin, which is why i'm always a bit weary about trying out new products. 
This mask says it works best for oily and combination skin, i'm unsure if this would help dry skin, but if you've got dry skin, and have tried this, let me know if it helped, as i'm curious to know! 
The mask didn't irritate my skin either, if anything it also helped to bring down the redness.

I'd had a breakout, especially on my chin and around my nose. Those nasty, sore under the skin spots just seemed to be popping up everywhere!

I applied this mask to my face and neck, washed it off with a cloth after 10 minutes, and the next morning my skin had cleared up a fair bit. Obviously i still had the red marks and the scabs where my previous spots were healing, but a few of the other spots that hadn't come out yet, had gone down. And since using this, I've not had any others appear.
It helped clean my skin thoroughly, unclog my pores and help reduce the oiliness.

This mask works really well for me, I would highly recommend it. I would also recommend Origins for skincare in general!
