A NYX Haul From Debenhams (+ A Giveaway!) || Beauty

The first product I tried from NYX, it was 3 years ago and I bought it on eBay from America. It was the most gorgeous lilac toned pink and I fell in love. The only downside? The fact it took forever to arrive and because I had just bought the one item it was looking too pricy to buy more. (Back before I discovered shipping sites, a simpler and less spendy time in my life..) So when I saw NYX were launching in the UK, I was beyond excited. Since then, it’s became a staple brand in my makeup bag and with good reason too. With that in mind, when I saw Debenhams were to start selling NYX I was excited. They now stock almost all of my favourite makeup brands in one place. (Sephora – eat your heart out!)

On that note, here’s what I picked up in my latest NYX haul and a cheeky giveaway so one of you can get your paws on one of my favourite NYX products;

A Trip The Roof Deck at Selfridges || London

Previously The Forest On The Roof, Selfridges has transformed it’s rooftop bar and restaurant The Roof Deck into a Californian inspired space perfect for the summer. So after arranging flowers at the Jurlique event, we decided it was way too much of a nice evening to head home straight away. Since we were on Oxford Street already, it seemed the perfect time to go and check out The Roof Deck at Selfridges. I make no secret of the fact in the summer half my pay cheque probably goes on rooftop cocktails (may be an exaggeration but seriously, if it’s summer and somewhere has a roof garden, I’m down.). So when Mona suggest that Anna and I check out Selfridges’ one, I was surprised I’d not heard of it before. On which note, here’s some snaps from my trip;

10 Tips To Help You Battle The Blogging Blues || Blogging

If you asked any blogger if they’d had a moment where they considered deleting everything and throwing the towel in, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who hadn’t. And, I hate to admit it but I had this moment over the past month or so. Everything with work and life seemed to be bogging me down and I would pull out my laptop and notepad but despite coming up with some post names I just couldn’t write anything that I felt proud to publish. In fact, sometimes, I couldn’t bring myself to write at all. Thankfully, due to a few realisations I’ve started to get my blogging mojo back and thought I’d share some tips I used for getting over my blogging slump.

Mean Girls x Spectrum Collections Brush Launch || Beauty

If you’ve spent any time with me (or follow me on Twitter), you’re probably aware that Mean Girls is one of my all time favourite films. The main give away? I can’t help but accidentally quote it in situations that call for an “I know, right?” or “grool.“. So when I saw that my favourite brush brand, Spectrum were coming together with Paramount Pictures to create the most gorgeous brush set inspired by the Mean Girls movie, I knew I’d be first in line to pick up a set.

With that in mind, imagine my reaction when Leah invited me along with her to the launch of Spectrum’s Mean Girls brush collection. Aside from promptly freaking out in excitement, I marked the date in my diary in pink of course and made plans to meet Leah after work to head over. So, without further ado, here’s what we got up to at the launch party and my thoughts on the 10 piece brush set;
