I've been using this 2 in 1 mask and peel by Soap and Glory for a while now. Its a really thick paste with little beads in that scrub the skin. It's got a very fresh smell to it, it's kind of like a toothpaste smell which I like.

You can use the product either ask a mask so I would apply it to the skin and leave it for 10 - 15 minutes and then wash off. The beads scrub into the skin and clean out the pore's.

You can also use it as a peel so leave on for 10 - 15 minutes and peel off - this is like a face pack and should lift away any dirt from the skin leaving it clean and leaving pores less noticeable.

I've noticed less blackheads on my face and my pores appear reduced. I really like that the product is like a paste rather than a wash or a thinner product. I love the fresh smell of the product and feel clean after i've used this.

I like the simple packaging from Soap And Glory and I think that £10 for 50ml of product is pretty decent. I have been trying a couple more products from the Soap and Glory Skincare range so keep an eye out for those on my blog soon.

You can buy Soap And Glory from their website here or from boots.

REVIEW: French Connection Air Alex Skater Dress

Dress: French Connection* // Cardigan: New look // Necklace: River Island 

I've kindly been sent this gorgeous French Connection dress to review on my blog. I decided to go for a little black dress because I don't really have one that I feel comfortable wearing in the day. I think this is a really versatile style and can be worn day or night.

i've decided to team it with a Burgundy cardigan and lipstick and a simple gold chain for an elegant but everyday Autumn look. I would wear this dress on it's own to go out on a night out or for a meal and then pop on a chunky cardigan for that everyday look. I'm excited to pop a jumper over the top of this dress aswell for a more casual look.

It's a shiny stretchy material so it fits me really comfortably. It has little sporty air patches on the sides which were really hard to photograph but you can see clearer on the French Connection website here  which I think make the dress abit more sporty and casual.

I really like this dress, It's £100 but you can wear it in so many different ways that you can justify paying that for a really good quality French Connection dress.



A few weeks ago now I was invited along to Style Birmingham Live. It's a fashion event that anyone can buy tickets for. This year it was held at Birmingham Town Hall and was hosted my Emma Willis and Rylan Clarke. There were some fabulous brands involved such as Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. I had a lovely day, It was great watching the catwalk and seeing all the fabulous new A/W 2013 collections and then taking advantage of the exclusive discounts across the city. It's a lovely day out and if your not from Birmingham and planning a shopping trip i'd recommend this as a day out because you get to see the latest trends and where you can buy them from.

Thought i'd give you guys a little update

Sorrrryyy...  The blogs been abit quiet recently, I'm back at university, it's my third year and i'm really struggling to keep on top of everything.

Also I have to squeeze in work and my social life.

So as you can tell things are abit hectic at the moment... I'm going to show you guys a couple of my latest collages :)

REVIEW : LIZ EARLE healthy glow powder blush

 Liz Earle Healthy Glow Powder blush - £16.50* - Liz Earle 

I love my blushers and this Liz Earle one has been added to my faves! I was really excited when I spotted the powder blushers on the Liz Earle website. There is loads of different shades to choose from but I went for Nectar which is number 6. Its a bright pink with shimmer and a gold undertone.

The Liz Earle brand is one of my favourites for make up and skincare. Cleanse and Polish is my number one cleanser and I'm loving the foundations. The packaging is simple but not cheap. I love that this blusher has a mirror because I hate having to bring a mirror with me when i'm out so love it when my little compacts have mirrors.

I think this blush has


Lipstick Queen - Velvet Rope £35* or buy at spaceNK

MMMMmm I love this lipstick !! I have to say i'm not a massive fan of matte lipsticks but Lipstick Queen have converted me! I love this formula! The lipstick glides on so effortlessly and leaves your lips looking amazing. I really love this red! It's so versatile and it's a very vintage red like a Marilyn red.

The lipstick lasts ages, and your lips are left feeling full and soft all day. The vitamins in the lipstick stop the lips from drying out.

I have to say i'm so impressed with this lipstick its gorgeous, the packaging is so pretty and you just want to keep taking it out of your bag because it looks so special and expensive.

My only negative about this product is the £35!!! price tag ouchh! But yout paying for the awesome Lipstick Queen name and you get an amazing quality product for that price. I'm very tempted to try more from Lipstick Queen.
