DHC Rich Eye Zone

DHC Skincare is a beauty brand I've come to love and use frequently in my skincare regime this year, it started with the Beauty Lift range and has continued with my latest post being about the DHC Rich Eye Zone care park. One of their new arrivals, the Rich Eye Zone care pack concentrates on that area we all start to worrying about as we keep hitting those larger age numbers.

Benzo Bar & Kitchen in Southampton

Southampton is full of fun restaurants and quirky bistros, but there's always one that comes along and blows everyone else out of the water and that is exactly what Benzo did when my best friend and I went to try out the newest place to be in Southampton. Benzo opened half way through July in Bedford Place, Southampton. A beautiful bar & kitchen with a bar area, restaurant and good sized back terrace done out in sophisticated grey and white with wooden tables and tall leather chairs. You'll be wanting to photograph the interior before anything else.

Beauty Shopping with Ideal World

When Ideal World first got in touch I was a bit like eh? I'd heard of them previously due to late nights watching shopping channels but I always assumed they were mainly home and garden based. Turns out they are a treasure chest full of beauty products ranging from skincare, makeup, tanning and so much more. Ideal World are home to an incredible range of products and genres, if you can think of it they probably have it and with that comes the beauty section where I was able to have a little taster thanks to the bloggers beauty box that landed in my hands a few weeks ago.

Tom Ford Spanish Pink

I've had my beauty eye on Tom Ford for a very long time but have never quite been able to justify the price but with our engagement party coming around very quickly, I wanted something special to wear on the night that I'd always remember. After a browse on House of Fraser's website I kept going back to Tom Ford, finally settling on Spanish Pink as the lipstick name and colour reminded me of living in Spain.

Keeping the Holiday Glow

Coming back from Spain with a subtle tan definitely put a smile on my face, I always find I look healthier and more put together with a sunshine glow so to keep it topped up I've been using Vita Liberata's latest product, Marula the world's first self tanning oil to provide protection against harmful UVA and UBV rays.

We're Engaged!

So something pretty special happened in June, which many of you would've seen on my social media but because I'm so happy and excited I also wanted to share it on here. After four years together, My one and only dropped to one knee and asked me to be his wife and through tears and me exclaiming "Are you serious?!" I somehow managed to say yes and then continued to cry happy tears.

Never Ending Summer by Birchbox

Millie Macintosh was always one of my faves from Made in Chelsea so when I saw she was doing a special collaboration with Birchbox in July I couldn't wait to get my box. I've been having the odd moan the last couple of months because my boxes have been so samey so it was great to open up this months and see something new and exciting. The theme for this month centers around Never Ending Summer, trying to keep hold of those summer vibes for as long as possible and thanks to this box, we'll all be doing so by looking pretty amazing too.

My Two New MAC Cosmetics Buys

When you have a best friend that stays with you through thick and thin, keep hold of her. When that best friend also rocks up with MAC Cosmetics goodies for you... well... she couldn't be more of a keeper if she tried. This is what my bestie did recently and two of my most wanted items have now joined the MAC family in my dresser.

Generation Vice

When news started circulating on Urban Decay's hotly anticipated launch of 100 brand new lipsticks I became a little hot under the collar. It's no lie that I'm a huge fan of the now replaced Revolution lipsticks and I was eager to get my hands on some of the new collection when Urban Decay dropped this bag of lip goodies in my lap.

I Fed the Penguins at Marwell!

If you've followed me for some time you may know that I have a teeny tiny obsession with Penguins, scrap that, they're kinda my life and if I could keep a little Humboldt as a pet I so would. Back in January after I celebrated my 26th birthday, I went out for a Nandos with the blogging girls to have a post Christmas and New Year catch up. Turns out it was actually a surprise birthday celebration with banners, chocolate cake and the most thoughtful birthday present ever.

Lancôme Juicy Shakers

I come from generation Lancôme Juicy Tube so it was only right that I tried the newest kid on the block, the Juicy Shaker. I remember the Juicy Tubes being my first high end purchase and I use to spend ages hanging around the counters deciding what to spend my £11 on, yes, they really were £11, bargain right?! Lychee was always my favourite with Bubblegum for its iridescent finish being a close second. The joys of being a nineties kid.

Keeping those Summer Highlights

I'm lucky that when spending time in the sunshine, my naturally blonde locks start to get even lighter and sun bleached. When I was in Spain back in May, I soaked my hair in lemon each day just like I did before my mum let me get my first set of highlights to make my hair go even blonder and since I've come back to wet and windy blighty I've been using my trusty OGX Lemon Highlights collection to keep that summer glow in my hair.

Buying Followers on Instagram

I didn't really plan this post but after seeing the odd few tweets floating about I kinda needed to put my thoughts down. I have been using Instagram from the get go because I love photography, sharing my experiences and also seeing what everyone else is up to in the world. I call it being inquisitive others refer to it as being damn right nosey.

Resting Bitch Face by Trust Fund Beauty

Not too long ago I shared a wishlist on AudreyStyle with a few nail polishes from Trust Fund Beauty included and they very kindly popped Resting Bitch Face in a little package for me to try. I'm not going to lie, I completely chose this based on the name alone, it was basically made for me. Trust Fund Beauty are known for their incredible shades and even better names plus they're a vegan and cruelty free brand.

Burt's Bees Lip Crayons

Burt's Bees have been around for years providing varied beauty products for us natural beauty fans and with that come the Burt's Bees Lip Crayons available in six beautifully creamy shades to suit everyone. Each of the lip crayons are fragrance free with no added flavour and in most reviews have been described as matte but I fail to see that at all, they couldn't be further from a matte finish if they tried.

*Sponsored post*

Yesterday saw soldiers in full military dress replicating the uniforms of World War one troops who fought in the Battle of the Somme all over the country. It was a touching tribute to what was the centenarian anniversary of the battle which saw the largest casualties in one battle in war to date. Thousands of volunteers took part, each representing a soldier who lost their life that first day, 1st July 1916. Commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's Art Programme, the work itself was created by Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller in collaboration with the directer of the National Theatre, Rufus Norris.
