An Introduction to JorgObé

Not so long ago my sister introduced me to a Danish skincare company called JorgObé. I had never heard of them before so I was really intrigued to see what they did differently. Launched in 2010 with a clear idea of creating skincare for men and woman while using natural and active ingredients, JorgObé has become a best selling skincare brand, winning numerous awards and has been praised in international beauty magazines such as Elle.

Sparkly Pumpkin by Lush Cosmetics

Lush Cosmetics and Halloween are probably two of my favourite things, so when you throw a sparkly pumpkin into the mix, I am one happy girl! Bubble bars are the products I love the most from Lush and I bought the Sparkly Pumpkin when I attended the Christmas Launch at Lush Portsmouth the beginning of the month. Covered in golden lustre with a stick of cinnamon as the stalk it has Autumn written all over it.

Make Up Revolution Single Shadows

I'm going to assume you're familiar with Make Up Revolution, the budget make up brand taking the beauty world by storm. If not, where have you been? They are going into Superdrug stores at a rapid rate which was how I found myself swatching to my hearts content a few weeks ago. I bought some of the single mono eyeshadows as I have palettes coming out of my ears.

Re:So Re-Launch Party

I recently attended the re-launch of Re:So situated in the Marlands Shopping Centre in Southampton. Launched in 2012, the award-winning Re:So Project was the first fully student-operated retail initiative in a UK shopping centre. Re:So has been relocated to a much larger, clean cut and contemporary space above Starbucks. Perfect for die hard fashion fans with an edge.

Bare Minerals Bare Guide to Color Warm

I've always been pretty dubious when it comes to mineral make up, sure it sounds great but I like a full coverage and I couldn't see how extra dustings of powder could give me that. I thought the best way to ease myself into mineral make up was with the Bare Minerals Bare Guide to Color in Warm kit. I love how you can pick up the try it kits from Bare Minerals before committing to full size products.

Brick Lip Pencil by MAC Cosmetics

MAC makes me happy, my lipstick collection is forever growing and Studio Fix is one of my favourite foundations so it was only natural I eventually ventured into their lip pencils. I love that Southampton now has a MAC Cosmetics counter but my bank account doesn't! There was a 10% discount day recently so I took full advantage and bought my first lip pencil in a gorgeous red shade.

Autumn Berry Lips

Autumn is my favourite time of year, I can finally embrace my love of dark colours, berry lips and layers. While routing through my lipstick collection a few weeks ago I found some old favourites and two new berry toned lippies I haven't stopped wearing so I thought I would share my favourites.

Lush Christmas Goody Bag & Haul

Yesterday I posted all about the Lush Christmas Launch I recently attended and today's post is about the wonderful goody bags we were given and what I bought on the night. We were able to choose four products to take away with us as well as the Comforter Bubble Bar we made which was huge!

Lush Christmas Launch

Oh Lush. You have well and truly pulled out the big guns this Christmas and I want EVERYTHING. I recently attended the Christmas launch at Lush Portsmouth with a handful of beautiful bloggers from the South. We were treated to a special showcase of all the bath and body products plus all their Christmas gift sets. Having only started using Lush products in January of this year, everything was new to me. Including their cult shower gel, Snow Fairy. I hadn't even smelt it before. I was like an excited child waiting to see Father Christmas.

Monu Skincare Recovery Balm

Skincare is something I've really taken notice of the last year, what with getting older and realising it was about time I started looking after my skin. Monu Skincare is a company I've known of for a while and I've tried a number of their products over that time, the Hydrating Mask and Brightening Boost being two of my favourite products. I've been using The Recovery Balm for the last 8 weeks and I've been converted to yet another Monu Skincare product.

October Birchbox

When I saw the sneak peak of this box on the Birchbox Instagram page I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. A pretty pink pouch and a lipstick pen. Eek. The theme of this months box is Work It! with products enclosed to help you get motivated. There is also a handy little 14 day planner, with tips and tricks to tackle the day ahead plus motivational quotes. There's been a lot of thought and effort put in October's Birchbox and it really shows.
