New YouTube Video: Primark Haul

It's been a long time since I went on a serious Primark shopping spree. I just can't trust myself in that place, and since I've been trying to cut back on the shopping, my only option was to avoid it at all costs. But recently I've been lacking on basic things like t-shirts, cami tops, pyjamas .. so I was left with absolutely no choice but to return. Last week was pay day, so on Saturday I set off with every intention of buying lots of things I don't need (story of my life). Primark is almost guilt-free shopping - you get so much for your money, and it's such a good feeling when you walk out with those big brown paper bags (unless it's raining, then it's pretty worrying).

So since my shopping spree was a total success, I thought I'd show you what I picked up in a new video. I hope you enjoy it - hit subscribe if you want to see more videos in future :)

NSpa Creamy Coconut Collection Giveaway.

Hello lovelies! So I'd be very surprised if you haven't heard me mention N-Spa Creamy Coconut products at some point over the last few months. I am absolutely obsessed with them this year. Like a lot of people, I want everything and anything coconut-scented during the Summer months

Earlier this year, I was going away for the weekend at the last minute and stopped past Asda to get some bath products. I only have a shower in my flat, so a night in a hotel means I must have a bath and it must be a good one. I saw this coconut range in Asda and threw them in my basket, thinking they'd be acceptable if they were at least a little bit coconut-y. I was pleasantly surprised (understatement) when it turned out to be the best smell ever. It's so different to the coconut scent from the Body Shop - much creamier and a bit like snowball cakes, which are my favourite! The scent from the body butter alone stays on the skin for hours too. In the range, there's also a shower scrub which has a really fine exfoliator, a body mist (perfect for holiday!) and a coconut bath fizzer too. N-Spa is my new favourite brand of the moment - some of the other scents in the range are gorgeous too, try them out if you're in Asda and you won't be disappointed!

Body Butter | Fragrance Mist | Bath Fizzer | Shower Scrub

Since I love to spread the word when I find an excellent, inexpensive product/brand, I thought I'd do a little giveaway! I've picked up the body butter, shower scrub, bath fizzer and body mist and I'm so excited for one of you to win all of these - I know you'll love them! 

So here's the rules! 

1. This giveaway is open to UK residents only. 
2. Entries from 'giveaway accounts'* will not be counted - so please don't enter.
3. This giveaway will end at midnight on the 28th August. Winner will be contacted by email within 24 hours of the giveaway ending, if I don't hear back from you within 30 days, I will chose another winner.

And here's where you enter - good luck! 

Have any of you tried this range before?


*just to clarify - I had an issue on a previous giveaway where I had lots of entries from fake accounts on twitter. This was blatantly obvious because I'd get a batch of 20 entries within seconds of each other, all accounts would have like 1 follower and the same picture, all tweets were for giveaways and it was clear this was one person trying to have an unfair advantage over other people. I don't think this is fair and don't want lots of fake accounts following me either, which is why I've asked them not to enter :) x

Dressing Down for Sunday.

Oversized Top: Primark | Palm Print Trousers: Accessorize (similar hereGold Sandals*: Office Watch: Olivia Burton | Backpack: Primark | Ring: Primark | Nails: 'Cute Coral' by Maxfactor

Hello! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I had a really quiet one and managed to get lots done in the house - is it bad that I count that as a successful weekend? I don't care if it is, it's a pretty good feeling to be chilling out on a Sunday night in a sparkling house with all the washing up to date and (almost) all my blog posts planned for the week. Oh, I even managed to film a Primark haul yesterday, which I'll edit in the next few days and have up on my YouTube channel on Wednesday night. ALSO, I have a giveaway coming this week - so watch this space! 

Now onto the outfit - this is basically a super comfy outfit for a super lazy day. I went over to my mums yesterday afternoon and spent the day playing Jenga with my sister and nephew (so much fun, it's so under-rated), and eating some fantastic spaghetti bolognese. I just love Sundays! The stretchy waistband on these trousers was much appreciated. I actually got these trousers last year and they're probably one of the only things I've had that have lasted so long, that I still like. They're silky soft and fit like a dream, and luckily palm print is in this year too. 

What's your favourite lazy day outfit?

FOTD: Every-Day Summer Make-Up

Hello! It's been a while since I've done a 'Face of the Day' post so today I thought I'd show you the make-up look I've been wearing almost every day at the moment. I've been loving Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows recently. I have the shade 'On and On Bronze' and it makes the perfect base for my favourite shimmer eyeshadows. The one I've been using the most is Mac 'All That Glitters' - I only suit this one if I've got a bit of a tan, so I'm definitely making the most of it during Summer. In the pictures above, I've used Urban Decay 'Buck' and 'Naked' as a crease colour, which is the only colour I really use in that area. It gives a really natural shadow and, since my eye make-up is almost always neutral, it goes with every colour I wear. Oh and my lip colour is Bourjois Colour Punch in 'Orange Punch' - I forgot to include that in the pictures below because it just get's thrown in my bag before I go. It's my absolute favourite colour at the moment.

And here's all the other products I used: 

L'Oreal True Match Foundation in shade 'Golden Tan' 
Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer Pot in shade 'NC30'
Michael Kors Bronze Powder in 'Beam'* (as highlighter)
Benefit Hoola Bronzer (for contouring)
Nars Blusher in shade 'Orgasm'

Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shadow in 'On and On Bronze'
MAC eye shadow in 'All That Glitters'
Urban Decay Naked Palette colours'Buck' and 'Naked'(in crease)
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in 'Brown/black'

Bourjois Colour Boost in 'Orange Punch'

What's your every day make-up products at the moment?
