cameras

Over the past 3 years I have found myself falling in love with photography, capturing any moments I could ~mostly on my phone at the time~, I love the idea that you can take a picture and essentially that moment is frozen in time, I must say I am very sentimental and love looking back on memories, so that’s probably why I got into it so much.

I’ve always been more into scenry potogrpahy, including nature, I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love trees ~lol~, and especailly bees, anything to do with the outdoors really and I’m there with my camera or phone. Of course I take photos of ~some~ food, and since I’m a blogger beauty items, and outfits are along with things I enjoy photographing now.

I switch between using my trusty phone camera, to my little Sony cyber shot, to my very recent and most loved possession which is my Sony A5000. I using all of these for different things, and I do still want to expand my camera collection!

The next camera purchase I am lusting over ~and I will get someday~ is a Go Pro it’s  always been something I’ve been so curious to try, for a lot of different reasons, they are teeny tiny, which is ideal for on the go shots other than carrying around a big camera, but even though the size they don’t lack in quality! Also the fact that they are waterproof is a massive pro ~hehe it’s in the name~ to me, because none of the things I use are waterproof and that gives me a fear of evening shooting pictures in the rain. But also imagine going somewhere like the Caribbean or Iceland ~could I have chose further polar opposites..~ and shooting whilst in the sea, or the blue lagoon, AMAZING.

Of course whenever buying a new piece of technology you want the best deal possible, so I’ve stumbled across the best place to make sure I and you get the best price! You basically type what you’re looking for into the site, and it comes up with allll the different Go Pro’s for example, and where the cheapest place to get them is, it’s so simple to use! Have a little look at the Go Pro deals I found ~here~!

If any of you have any of you tried a Go Pro before? Let me know, I’d love to hear how you got along with it & see any pictures you’ve shot!

Indulge Beauty

Have you heard of Indulge Beauty? If not.. you need too. Ps. this blog post is a long one hehe grab a cuppa tea!

It’s a brand new beauty retailer, and they already have everything sooo right. They have a shop in Westfield’s Stratford City (get me there asap), but thankfully they also have a whole sparkly website full with some amazing beauty bits. They sell a massive range of things from, makeup to fragrances, hair products, bath and body and also have a full range for men. FAB! They sell some amazing brands too, let me list a few; beauty blender, buxom, glam glow, makeup forever, the ordinary & urban decay.. I could go on for days. Find a whole list >here<!

A slight extraction from their website that I love is.. ‘At Indulge Beauty, our mission is to empower you when it comes to beauty and grooming – leaving it all in your hands. We aim to redefine the industry so you feel good about how you shop, feel and look – confidence to show the world the real you.’ I LOVE THIS (already said that hehe, but I do).

So I have been VERY lucky to have been gifted one of their beauty capsule boxes, jam packed with their top picks for 2018, and I am in love, so I’m going to share with you what I got inside, EEP how exciting!

Can you believe I call myself a beauty lover, but I’ve never tried a real Beauty Blender? Well I haven’t.. So when I spotted this in my box I screamed! I have a few beauty sponges of course, but this feels amazing compared, it blends my makeup so much more seamlessly, I am fully converted, and I’m just gutted that I didn’t try it sooner. Also it came with a mini Beauty Blender ‘bender cleanser’ so I can wash it properly, and keep it as pink as possible. (Am I now a proper beauty blogger?).. Shop the Beauty blender >here<! & Buy the Beauty Blender cleaner >here<!

Glam Glow is again a branded I’ve lusted over for the longest time, hearing constant shining reviews, I did have a few of there masks on my wish list. But finally I’ve tried one! WOO, and I couldn’t be happier, it defiantly live up to the expectations. So the one I’ve received is the gravity mud firming treatment, it’s a peel of mask, and I can’t deny that I resembled the tin man while I had it on (hahah), but it’s left my skin feeling very firm as suggested and so soft, very easy to peel of too! I’m excited to try more from Glam Glow. Shop the Glam Glow range >here<!

glamglow

Another thing that I’ve been wanting to try for a while (it’s like my wish list in a box hahah), is the Urban Decay all nighter setting spray, I’ve heard such amazing things about this for years, and I finally have my own YAY. It’s also a mini which is perfect size to pop in my bag, so I can keep my makeup on, on the go. Shop the Urban Decay range >here<!

urban decay

Bbrowbar next, an eyebrow gel, I must say I love an eyebrow gel, it’s clear, so handy for keeping your brows in place all day, whether you have them filled in or not it’s always a staple product in my makeup bag. This ones really nice it holds the brows in place without them left feeling hard. The brush is a perfect size too! Shop the Bbrowbar range >here<!

We all know that I love my lipsticks, but again a brand I’ve never tried is Lord & Berry crayon lipstick in the shade ‘fire’, which is a gorgeous red/orange with a slight pink hint, this is literally right up my street, and I can already tell I’m going to wear this constantly through spring & summer, well probably all year (let’s be honest). It feels very moisturising on the lips, and gives a lovely sheen. Shop the Lord & Berry range >here<!

When it comes to a moisturiser I defiantly need something hydrating as my skin is mostly dry/dehydrated, so when I spotted the Clarins hydra-essentiel cream in the box I was so excited. I haven’t yet found the ‘perfect’ moisturiser for me yet. This could be it?! (with some luck). I’ve tried it a little, and so far it sits well on my skin, doesn’t bunch up, and does add some hydration, so I’m excited to see in the long run how I get on. Shop the Clarins hydra-essentiel cream >here<!

Another hydrating product?! My skin couldn’t be more excited (and in need, with it being winter lol). A brand named Perricone MD, sounds fancy, eh?! This is the hydrating cloud cream, it sounds amazing, doesn’t it? I’ve been using this just on little dry areas on my face as a pose to all over, and I LOVE IT! It defiantly is making my skin a lot softer, and giving my skin the treat it needed. Shop the Perricone MD range >here<!

hydrate

Let’s chat about a soap next, that I am all heart eyes over the packaging, it looks very vintage, which is right up my street. I never normally venture to buy any snazzy soaps. I just use the ones we have in the house, but it’s defiantly great to have a change. This soap is fair-trade and organic fabulous. It’s by the brand Dr. Bronner’s and it’s the all-one hemp rose, including ingredients such as; coconut oil, palm oil, hemp oil, and rose fragrance. It also smells very fabulous let me tell you. Shop the Dr. Bronner’s soap >here<!

dr bronners

This product I’m about to chat about is something I didn’t even know existed.. It’s by the brand Skin Laundry and it’s a neck & chest sheet mask?! WOW. I love face masks a lot, so I’m very sure I’ll love this. It’s silly but I suppose it’s easy to forget about looking after your skin on both your neck & chest (or maybe it’s just me that forgets haha), but this is such an easy way to keep them areas moisturised. It claims to refresh, tighten and brighten, which is perfect! Shop the Skin Laundry neck & chest mask >here<!

Night creams are one of my favourite skin care products, mainly because you can whack loads on and let it do the skin some magic overnight. This one is from the brand Verso, it’s there night cream with retinol 8. It claims to have a calming and repairing effect on the skin. It’s another fab smelling product and it has made my skin feel smooth. Shop the Verso night cream >here<!

The next product is from a brand called Sachajuan, which is a professional haircare brand, my hair defiantly gets neglected, so I’m excited to have received this. I want to start of with the smell, it is divine! It’s an ocean mist which basically is going to give your hair a very beachy look, which I love, it’ll be fab for the upcoming summer months. Shop the Sachajuan ocean mist >here<!

There was also a couple of fragrances inside the box eeeep, I love trying new fragrances, but it’s not something I ever get to try very often, I think with fragrances it’s easier to stick with what you know. I got the Loewe; Quizas; Pasion, which is an eau de toilette, for me this would be something to wear every now and then as it’s quite strong, but it is a very expensive, warm smelling scent (so good at describing fragrance lol). And also I got the men’s fragrance too! Shop the whole Loewe range >here<!

perfume

The final product is from M.E Skin Lab, it’s called ‘baume 27’, again fancy right?! I’ve never ever heard of this brand, but I’m excited to see how this works for me. It’s a repairing balm that helps to restructure the skin, it helps with elasticity and firmness. It’s going to repair any damaged skin, so I’m going to give this a go on a couple of face scars I have (from chicken pox lol).

A massive thank you to the team over at Indulge Beauty for sending me over this beautiful capsule box, I couldn’t be more grateful! *squeeeeze*

the little things in life

Life is beautiful, it really is, and I think it’s so easy to forget how lucky we all are, just to be able to breathe, like it’s MENTAL, and I wanted to share with you what my favourite little things are in life! Also I suppose you’ll get to know a little bit about my weird self within this blog post.

bee

ONE; Bees

Of course I had to start with the beloved bee, I’m actually obsessed with them, I find it so calming in the summer to sit and watch them, they just buzz along, and have no care in the world. Just absolutely bee-autiful, lol, love a bee pun.

TWO; Dressing Gowns

I mean honestly is there a better feeling than coming home and putting your dressing gown around you, literally the cosiest thing ever, and I wish I could wear mine constantly. It’s even better when you get a brand new one for Christmas and it’s the softest thing on earth.

THREE; Trees

Trees, man, beautiful. They’ve been around growing in the ground for years, they’ll out live us all and for that reason alone they are amazing. They have so many memories around them (I am so sentimental criiinge), and I love how grand they are. I’m

FOUR; Music

Music is probably one of the best things in life, because it can literally zone you out take you to another place, and change your mood instantly, very uplifting. Some of my fave artists at the moment are; Nina Simone, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin. I also have the biggest love for Eminem lol.

FIVE; Reading a Book

A lot of people read on an electronic device (an electronic device hahah who am I) these days but I can’t understand it!! There’s nothing like a new book, turning each page, and seeing it looking a little tatty after you’ve read it. Also reading just takes you to a completely different world. This year I’m defiantly going to make it my goal to read a few books.

SIX; Smiling at Strangers

I love smiling at strangers, like fully cheesy grinning at them, it’s something I’ve always done and probably always will. I just feel you could literally make someone’s day by smiling at them, and it makes my day too, so everyone’s happy. WOO!

SEVEN; Laughing

Laughing is the most feel good thing you can do I promise, I love laughing until it hurts and you can’t literally do anything else but laugh. It just makes you feel beyond happy. That’s why I like laughter lines haha. I would literally laugh in an empty room, I mean that could be a worrying thing to admit, but I think it’s great.

EIGHT; Baths

I love baths oh my god, especially with a bath bomb in and a face mask on, just so  relaxing and zen, whack a candle on the side, heavenly! Have you ever had a hot drink in a bath? Warm on the outside, warm on the inside, oooooh! But baths solve many a life problem, same along with face masks.

NINE; Wild Flowers

These pop up all the time in summer & spring, and I love them, they just pop up, all random colours, different kinds, I love the colours and how each one is unique. They just add a sprinkling of colour that we need.

TEN; Stars

Stars, magical I feel. I love sitting outside at night (more so in summer) and watch them, they make me feel very at peace, and I think we sometimes forget they are there! I defiantly need to go proper stargazing some day.

ELEVEN; Photographs

I mentioned earlier I’m a sentimental person, and that is why I love photographs so much, life is a very short thing, and things pass so quickly. So the idea that you can capture a moment of time in a picture is AMAZING to me. I take a lot of photographs, and I’ll keep them forever n ever.

There we have it, some of my favourite little things in life. Tell me some of your favourite little things in life below in the comments, I’d love to hear!
