blog love

Reading blogs is one of my favourite things to do in an evening when I'm tucked up in bed. It's nice to be able to switch off from the days thoughts & absorb all things beauty, fashion & lifestyle. There are quite a few blogs I regularly check back on, even if they don't have a new post that day I will head over to their blog to scroll through the archives! I already did a blog love post a while back featuring a few blogger babes so I thought I'd share a few more again!

Let me know your favourite blogs! (:

P.s I'm sorry for the lack of blog posts recently & also for this 'short but sweet' post, life is hectic, hopefully it will calm down soon so I can get back on track with my little blog! Don't forget to enter my giveaway here though! Seems you're all pretty obsessed with the Marc Jacob Mini Perfumes too & thank you so much for the lovely comments on my Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick review!

bourjois rouge edition velvet lipstick | grand cru

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick 'Grand Cru' - £8.99

Bourjois are a brand that I find myself going back to more & more recently, with their Rice Powder being in my top drugstore powders & the Chocolate Bronzer being the first bronzer to ever touch my pale cheeks I've got a lot of trust in the brand when it comes to trying out new products! They seem to be my main go to brand when it comes to bases & I haven't really dipped into any of their lip product offerings until there was recently a 3 for 2 which provided me with the perfect opportunity. I already had a Bourjois foundation & powder in my basket so it made sense to choose a lipstick & try something new & this is when I welcomed the Rough Edition Velvet lipstick in the shade 'Grand Cru' into my life. 

I'm all about the berry tones when it comes to lip products so when I noticed it on the shelves I knew it was the shade for me. When applied it's definitely more of a pink toned berry colour rather than the usual purple hues found in berry shades but in my opinion this just makes it more wearable as purple lipsticks can sometimes be a bit harsh for an everyday makeup look! It can be built up though to create a stronger, more vampy appearance. It goes on as though it is a lip gloss yet has the same staying power as a matte lipstick but manages to avoid that dry feeling matte products can have. It's the smoothest, softest lip product I've ever worn & I can see why Bourjois popped the word Velvet into it's name!

Have you tried any of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks?

marc jacob minis

uk beauty blogger, marc jacob perfume, marc jacob mini perfumes, marc jacob daisy, marc jacob honey, beauty,
There is nothing I love more than a miniature version of my favourite products (okay, maybe I exaggerated a little but I do have a whole lotta love for teeny tiny products!) Marc Jacob perfumes are some of my favourites, with Honey & Daisy being two scents that I know I'll always have in my collection. When Dom's Dad arrived home from Greece & presented me with this little gift set of four MJ perfumes I couldn't stop smiling, firstly because how lovely of him to bring me such a nice gift home & secondly because the bottles are so so cute! They are tiny & when I say tiny I really mean it like smaller than you're probably imagining right now. The little bottles each adorned with a decorative lid to represent their scents are the perfect size to pop in your handbag. I always worry about carrying a full sized perfume bottle around in my bag, incase it gets ruined or even leaks & sometimes a spritz of body spray doesn't quite cut it when you've been travelling around lots or had a long day at work. It's always nice to be able to wear a favourite perfume when you need a little refresh! It's also nice to have options, I'm forever throwing the same perfume/body spray into my bag but now I can switch it up more often. Another perk to this pocket sized perfume set is that you don't need to commit to buying a bottle of perfume to then discover it's completely different to when you drenched yourself in it at the department store/Boots/wherever you go perfume shopping! With these little minis you can experiment to see which one you prefer wearing. I'm still obsessing over how cute the bottles are, I love that they literally are a shrunk down version of the full sized ones with the embellished lids, clear glass bottle & pretty packaging! The downside? It seems that they're only available from Duty Free! 

Whats your favourite Marc Jacobs perfume?

pug life #8

Little Tilly pug has been quite a poorly pup this week. Unfortunately she has had an eye ulcer which has caused her a lot of pain so she had to be sedated at the vets for them to properly examine it & check there were no underlying issues. Thankfully it's only a really small ulcer & today we got the good news that it's healing really well! I've been spending my mornings off work snuggling her on the sofa & ensuring she has everything she wants, including allowing her to eat her din dins on the sofa on my knee! After her sedation she was so so sooo sleepy & confused, it was kinda cute but I felt so sorry for her! She's had some of her fur shaved off her neck & her front leg too, bless her but hopefully it will grow back quickly. It was heartbreaking having to leave her behind at the vets on Monday morning, I'm such an overprotective puppy mummy, anyone who has a dog will know what I mean though! She's back to her usual self now, being a complete madam & running riot round the house but I am so glad I've got my little hyper Tilly pug back! 
She's been playing with her "Uncle Cloud" the Husky today, it's hilarious seeing them together because of the size difference but they love each other so much!
