Summer shades

So today I have finally had the day off work and have had a well deserved day of pampering 💁🏼…

First of all I took a trip to the nail salon as my nails were beyond overdue and one had snapped off and it was just all a disaster 😫.


After browsing on Pinterest and getting some ideas I decided to try out the ‘almond’ shape for my nails finished off with a summery pale blue (I know the nail varnish was OPI but I didn’t see what the colour was called)… But I absolutely love the colour as it’s perfect for summer 😍.

After I got my nails done I FINALLY had time to try out one of my new Kylie lipkits so I decided to try out Kylie’s favourite – which is called “Ginger”…


This is the first brown shade of lipstick I’ve ever bought and I decided to buy it because it is more of a reddy-brown than a full on deep shade brown. I have decided that I absolutely love it and will definetly invest in more brown shades in the future!!

When I ordered this shade I was a little nervous as I’ve heard some bad reviews about the darker shades in Kylie’s collection as reviews claim they aren’t evenly pigmented when applied, but I disagree with this as I only used one layer when I applied ginger and it came out perfectly. If you want to read my review on Kylie’s Lipkits read here…

So these are my summer shades for the day and I will be uploading more photos of my other Kylie cosmetics products throughout the week!

Deliveryyyyy

Hello to all my lovelies!

I am sorry that I haven’t posted in over a week but I have been so busy working trying to save these last pennies for uni next month that all I do is werk werk werk werk werk werk, meaning I have little time to myself and not the time to blog 😭😭😭😭.

But today I have made time as my long awaited delivery from Kylie Cosmetics has finally arrived and I am so in love 😍.

I ordered the products as soon as I saw the new summer colours (I know the birthday edition has come out since then but I live in the uk so shipping takes forever), but I fell in love with Maliboo and Ginger on Kylie’s Instagram and I wanted a gloss so I ordered Koko gloss as I’ve always loved that lipkit colour!

I will review these 3 products and show you all photos on Monday!!

Nude nails

Hey lovelies! It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post but recently I got my nails done as there has been such a fashion craze with acrylic nails due to celebrities such as the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Rihanna and Beyoncé. 


These days there are many different shapes and styles for acrylic nails such as stiletto, ballerina, almond, round, square… You name it there’s a shape for it!


I decided to go for a nude nail in the ballerina style with a rose gold glitter on both my ring fingers… I looked at the bottles in the nail parlour and saw that the nude colour was an Essie colour named “Sand” and the rose gold glitter was an OPI colour called “Rose Gold”. But unfortunately as these are not my colours I can’t take a photo of the bottles or remember the numbers of the colours!


It’s amazing how great something so little like getting your nails done can lift your spirits! So if you’re ever feeling down go to your nearest nail parlour!

Post Glastonbury blues..

Sorry for the lack of posts this week but I’m finally back from Glastonbury and am back to having unlimited electricity and phone charge 😂

As promised, I am going to share my Glastonbury experience with you all… It may have taken 13 hours to get in because of the torrential amount of mud due to weeks of rain before the event but it was SO worth every minute of that 13 hour queue.

I truly can’t find a way to put my weekend into words therefore I am just going to share photos with you all…


The atmosphere and the views were just unreal…


But my favourite moment of the weekend was watching Coldplay shut down the festival with their breathtaking performance. It is up there with one of the best things I’ve ever seen and I’m not a massive Coldplay fan but honestly they were incredible… From bringing on a BeeGee to the creativity of the performance, everything was just on point and the perfect way to send off Glastonbury 2016 and you can watch them here.


I am currently sitting on my sofa feeling very depressed about life as I’d do anything to be back in that muddy field! I highly recommend anyone to attend Glastonbury if you ever have the chance to as you will not be disappointed!!

Vita Coco

Today I have had a really postive day and therefore I’ve decided to share one of my top beauty secrets with you all…

I live by this stuff for my hair and it can be bought in the condiments aisle in Tesco as well as shops like Urban Outfitters…

Taaa daaaaaa!

Vita Coco coconut oil is perfect for everything from beauty to cooking!! It has many purposes and makes a great mosturiser however the main reason I use this oil is for my hair…


This stuff is A M A Z I N G for hair. I always apply it to my hair the night before I wash it or if I don’t have time for that, I leave it on at least one hour before I wash it. It provides my hair with so much strength and has increased the shine of my hair especially in my blonde ombré! 

As for the application, I leave my Vita Coconut in a room temperature environment so it doesn’t go rock hard but doesn’t melt this making it the right consistency for application. For my hair I scrape some of the oil out and massage it in until my whole head is covered. I apply extra to the ends of my hair and tie my hair up so it doesn’t soak into my clothes.

I then wash and blow dry my hair normally and I am left with healthy, clean, soft, silky and shiny hair.



It is also very long lasting and therefore worth the money! I’ve had this pot about 3 months and still have half left!

I really recommend you try this product out to keep your locks healthy this summer as the sun can be damaging to your hair.

Go get your Vita Coco oil here!!!
