Body Shop Recently Loved

During my latest trip to the UK, I visited the Body Shop, and although we have the Body Shop in Ireland, it is nothing like the quality of the stores in the UK. In Ireland, I don't often visit the Body Shop as I find it over priced and can never find anything I like, yet in the UK I fell in love with everything in the shop. They have a much more extensive range and much better prices, I'm not sure why, maybe I'm just confused with different currencies. 

The first product I've been trialing for the past week is the Pink Grapefruit hand cream. Now I'm not a hand cream person as my hands don't get very dry, except occasionally in winter, but the scent of this hand cream changed my mind completely. Obviously, it smells like pink grapefruit, I guess I didn't realise how much I appreciated the scent, so sweet and vibrant. As a cream itself, it's super quick to absorb and isn't sticky, the only downside is the fact it doesn't keep its scent as long as I'd like it to.

The other product I've been loving is the matte lip liquid in the shade Taipei Orchid. I've heard a lot of great things about this product before purchasing an I've been wanting to try it for a while. The shades I wanted weren't in stock, which were less pink toned than this shade, but I decided to try this one anyway. It's a really soft, baby pink and I don't think it complements my pale skin tone too much, but I still quite like it. Texture wise, it applies smoothly and dries quick enough, and lasts a considerable amount of time, my favourite part is that it doesn't dry out my lips at all, and I can't wait to try more shades.

My favourite thing about the Body Shop is that they are 100% vegetarian and are cruelty free, and they're definitely a brand I need to shop in more often. 

Has anyone else got any Body Shop products that they love?

Mellow Yellow | Outfit

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you've all had a wonderful time, and few days off, if you've been so lucky. I love the Easter season for all it's vibrant colours and brighter days, it just puts a step in your day. Usually, I'm not a bright colour wearer, but I saw this bright orange (I called it yellow in the title for the rhyme shh) bomber jacket in Penneys (Primark) a few weeks ago and I thought it would add something cool and joyous to my wardrobe and outfits, just perfect for Easter. Also it's a very padded bomber compared to the other ones I own which I love.


It's that kind of weather and season that it's simultaneously cold and warm at the same time and you have to be prepared for sudden weather and temperature changes. I usually bring a light sweatshirt for this weather, cozy and warm. The one I wear above is from New Look, and I'm really loving the University/state style jumpers I think they're so trendy yet so chic (even though I wouldn't buy one of my own Uni, weird).



I am very excited for the summer months as I will hopefully have more time to put into my blog again, as I've been dist and get it to the way I want it to be so stay tuned.

Has anyone else got bright colours in their wardrobe for spring?

How Much Is My Face Worth?

I've seen these posts go around for years and I've never gotten around to do it. I thought it'd be interesting to see how much makeup I use in general and how much it all costs in total together, it could also be scary. I would consider myself not too over the top with makeup, I don't buy only really expensive products or only cheap ones, I like to have a mix and I don't wear a lot of makeup everyday so I just picked a look I had done for the day and calculated all the products that I used. Hope you enjoy. 

The products I used are:
Maybelline Baby Skin Primer11.49
Nivea Soft Moisturizer6.49
Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation4.99
Natural Collection Loose Powder2.79
Sleek Solstice Highlight palette12.49
Natural Collection eyebrow palette2.79
Natural Collection eyebrow gel2.79
Natural Collection eyeliner2.79
BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic palette15
Wet n' Wild Megaprotein mascara2.98
MAC Whirl Lipliner17.50
MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick20



As you can see I don't buy that much 'high-end' brands mainly, I only splurge on them when I really want something I know I'll use a lot. Plus most of my money on makeup goes on more lipsticks I don't need. The total for all the makeup I've used above is 102.1. I'm actually surprised at how little I spent on this look, it's still a lot but for that much products I think that it's a decent price. Below is the look I created using the products mentioned above, 


Hope you enjoyed my look and finding out how much my face costs at the moment! Has anyone else ever calculated how much their face is worth? 
(On a side note, makeup and the amount of money you spend on your face doesn't literally define worth, you're beautiful without makeup and with whatever makeup you choose to wear.)
