Valentina: Conscious & Sustainable Jewellery*

This month, Valentina became the most recent brand to be added to my ever-growing jewellery collection. When it comes to jewellery, I like to opt for a few statement pieces which I can wear every single day. Since receiving my beautiful butterfly charm bracelet, that's exactly what I've done - worn it every, single day, without fail! I am obsessed with this piece, and I've received compliments aplenty whilst wearing it!

The Week in Words #1

Perhaps I should start with a brief intro here, seeing as you don't normally hear from me on a Sunday? Perhaps. Well, when I started this blog, I immediately labelled it as a 'beauty and lifestyle' blog, without much thought into how I would tailor my content to live up to that label. I just went with the flow and got caught up in a whirlwind of foundation reviews and chit-chat. Well, I guess what I'm trying to say here is that I've had a think, and I've decided that a weekly round-up could well be the solution. Keeping a journal is supposedly very therapeutic, so I'm hoping that this little series will be beneficial in more ways than one! I'm fully aware that these posts may not be as popular as my Tuesday posts (which are almost always beauty related), but these Sunday posts are more for me than for anyone else (how selfish of me, ha). I'm not promising a post every Sunday, just when I feel like I have something to say.

No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush | Review

I've wanted a facial cleansing brush for ages, but I couldn't decide between the Clarisonic Mia 2 (£125), Magnitone Barefaced (£70) and Clinique Sonic System brush (£79). Price was a big factor for me, I won't lie. I'm a student, working part-time, which means I don't exactly have money to burn! On top of that, I'm moving out in August, so I'm having to be extra vigilant when it comes to my spending. Despite my urges, I held off purchasing any of the cleansing brushes that had caught my eye, as they're all a lot of money, and I didn't know how I'd get on with them.

Travel Brushes from Born Pretty Store & Discount Code*

Let me introduce you to the Born Pretty Store: an online store specialising in budget makeup, tools and accessories, with free, twenty-four hour, worldwide shipping. Recently, I've been exploring the Born Pretty website. Having read reviews of their products from other bloggers, I wanted to see what the deal was here; can products and tools this cheap really be all that effective? This is the first of a few posts I've been planning, in which I aim to delve into the realm of Born Pretty and examine the quality of their products...

Vichy Dermablend Foundation Review

If you're a blogger, this foundation is probably already on your radar. For me, this was definitely a blogger-induced buy! However, if you're not a blogger/beauty enthusiast, you're probably yet to hear about Vichy, because, in my opinion, it is an up and coming brand. So let me introduce you... Vichy Laboratoires is a premium brand of skin and body care, makeup and anti-aging products, owned by L'Oreal under its Active Cosmetics division. Thermal spa water from the hot springs of Vichy in France is the only water used in its products. If you get on with the likes of La Roche-Posay and Avene, then you're more than likely to love Vichy products!
