I first discovered the Beauty Atelier on Twitter. They have such a fun feed and their logo in particular really stood out to me, being so colourful and vibrant. After complimenting them on their gorgeous lash collection they sent me the most gorgeous bundle of goodies to try, including fluttery long lashes and make up tools including sponge and face cleanser.

I was so excited to try the goodies out. I have not used sponges previously – opting for my trusty Real Techniques brush collection every time, but I must admit after using this sponge for the first time it has truly revolutionised how I do my make up from now on. It gives my skin such a flawless finish which as I am entering into Summer and coming out from hibernation will be perfect for those long Summer days in the sunshine.

To get to my ultimate fave part of the package. The Beauty Atelier sent me a range of gorgeous lashes to try including three beautiful sets of fluttery lashes. Along with three sets of Luxurious Silk lashes. These included #Romantic – perfect for that gorgeous date night, candlelit dinner, #Precious – perfect for that family reunion and making Auntie so jealous that you have lashes to die for and #Glamorous for those nights out with the girls, partying until dawn.

The packaging was great and shows off the product so well. I’ve found recently that I really dislike that packaging on lashes where you can’t see the full effect of what you are getting straight away – anyone agree? These are great though as they have solid clear packaging so you know they won’t get damaged and you know exactly what you are getting for your money.

I can’t wait to wear these over Summer alongside some cute outfit of the day looks so make sure you keep an eye on my instagram for upcoming pics!

If you’re looking for lashes for your next girly night out – this is definitely the place to go! At around £15 they are certainly value for money with such a gorgeous texture and a bold, unique look with the addition of a good lash glue they are guaranteed to see you through those Summer parties and outings!

30. Sweet Cheesus

My featured business this week is…Sweet Cheesus!

I came across this fabulous mini cheesecake company at a bloggers event just before Christmas and they should literally come with a warning as they are probably the most delicious shop bought sweet treats that I have enjoyed in some time!

Flavours include Vanilla, Cookies & Cream, Apple Crumble, Salted Caramel & Pecan (my personal absolute fave!), White Chocolate & Summer Fruits and Salted Caramel (Gluten Free). Each are handmade and are the perfect size for a mini dessert or for a luxurious treat. I can highly recommend trying out all the different flavours. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the Salted Caramel and Pecan and it ended up being my personal favourite! Why not get your friends over for dinner and buy a selection to share? Or snuggle down in front of a movie on a Sunday night with your favourite to indulge in?

They are currently available in Selfridges and in various stockists around London with a view to branching into supermarket chains in the near future so keep your eyes peeled! Once customers get a taste for how good these are they will be flying off the shelves! Visit their website by clicking here and make sure you follow them on Twitter @SweetCheesusUK

If you could have any flavour cheesecake what would it be? Leave your answer in the comments!

Christmas Box Swap with Twisted Beauty

So a little bit of a belated post but I had a bit of a break from posting over the Christmas period! I did however want to share a fabulous Christmas box swap that I did with Twisted Beauty – kind of like Secret Santa, but not so secret! We each had to give each other five general things on our wish list and purchase gifts up to a budget of £20.

I absolutely loved buying all the cute gifts for Rachael from Twisted Beauty on her list! She had owls, tea, something mauve, Home Bargains and photographs. It was so fun trying to find the items and within the budget as well. It gave me a few fun outings out in Covent Garden and on Oxford Street.

I definitely gave Rachael a bit of a challenge! My 5 things were:

  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Yankee Candles
  • Anything Kawaii
  • Cities – London/Paris
  • Sweet Treats

First off she got me a fabulous trivial pursuit of The Big Bang Theory. I love games so I’m so excited to play! I have been watching The Big Bang Theory lately and it’s one of my favourite TV series so I’m looking forward to testing my knowledge now!

My box had the unmistakable scent of gorgeous Yankee candles which I have become besotted with this Christmas. The beautiful scents fill the house and make it smell like a Winter wonderland! I love them! Rachael bought me some lovely wax melts which will ensure the scents will linger. Yum!

I love anything cute and kitsch so when I found this most beautiful llama bag in my box I was so delighted! I love Tofu Cute and originally had a cute little sushi bag from them. This is a perfect replacement and I can’t wait to use it as my reusable shopping bag from now on.

As you may know I am a total fan of anything handmade and unique. This cute printed mirror with all things London is the perfect addition to my make up bag. I love little compact mirrors – they’re so handy for keeping in your bag and ensuring your make up is on point throughout the day!

We met the Jewellerybox.co.uk business whilst attending the Bloggers Conference back in the Summer when I first met Rachael. I absolutely loved all their cute designs and I was so excited to open up some fabulous pink doughnut earrings! I love pink and love big bold earrings so I’m sure I will be wearing these a lot!

MAC Haul – December 2015

So I know it’s that time of year when I really should be buying prezzies for other people and totally overspending on them. The truth is, I’ve been pretty organised this year – ordering most of my gifts online and wrapping weeks in advance of the big day, so as a congratulatory move I decided to head to MAC and treat myself a little!

Walking into MAC is like walking into a wonderland of make up and beauty goodies. It’s the beauty go to for any make up artist and I am literally in love with it. (I haven’t forgotten you, Benefit and Urban Decay…)

I used to visit the branch in High Street Kensington in London which I loved. It had loads of products and it was fairly empty meaning you didn’t feel so bad for asking the staff to try product after product and they had time to spend talking you through different make up tips. They closed this branch earlier in the year which was gutting and now my nearest is in my local Westfield. On this occasion however, I decided to visit their new branch in Carnaby Street which they have recently relocated. Now it’s so much bigger with ample space for trying products and having demonstrations.

To be honest, as always, I only knew one thing that I wanted to get and that was a lighter shade of the Studio Fix foundation which is my current go to. It provides such a fantastic coverage without being too oily and I always get such fab compliments when I wear it. A cheaper fab alternative is the foundation from W7. This is particularly great in Summer as it’s a little bit lighter, so perfect if you don’t want to have too much on your skin.

Studio Fix Fluid in NW20 – £22

This Winter I’ve become obsessed with the colour navy. It’s such a cute Winter colour and definitely makes a change from wearing black all the time. I recently saw a Vlogger (I can’t remember who) demonstrating a fab navy eyeliner and so have been on the lookout for a navy eyeliner ever since. I found this gorgeous shade, Siahi, in the fluidliner which is a dark navy. I’ll probably use it to draw some cute winged lines to go with my bold new lashes! These will look fab over the Christmas and New Year holiday season!

Fluidline in Siahi – £16

The last thing I purchased was of course my absolute favourite, glitter! Glitter is my must have in my make up bag and whilst in recent years I’ve been sticking to white and silver, this year I’ve decided to mix it up a bit with this gorgeous pink! I was literally drawn to it in the shop and I honestly don’t know how everyone in the shop wasn’t drawn to it like a moth to a light. It’s going to look so cute over Christmas and I can’t wait to get creative with it!

Glitter in Pink – £17
