The Highlighter Palette You Need In Your Life

UK Beauty Blogger, Liverpool Beauty Blogger, Liverpool Blogger, Beauty Blog, Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette,

This little beauty has been my go-to highlighter for several months & even during my "blogging break" it was always on my mind to share this palette on here. The Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette is contained within a luxe rose gold compact, making it hard to believe that it retails for under £10. The four shades are all equally as dreamy, with one cream formula, two baked powders & one silky shimmer.

Ecliptic is the only cream formula, in a light Rose-Pink colour with warm undertones & a pearly finish. It's quite sheer but easy to build up to achieve the desired look. I tend to use it when I'm in a hurry as it's so quick to apply & rub in for a subtle glow. It's also great to use as a base if you want to "glow" all out with your highlight as you can apply one of the powder shades on top for a more intense look. 

It turns out that the shade I thought I'd get the least use out of is actually my most loved, Hemisphere. It's a beautiful Pinky, Lavender shade that provides a pretty, luminous glow & I love it. I've had so many people asking me what highlighter I use because I wear it religiously right now. It's what I'm wearing in the above photo & as you can see my highlight is poppin'!

Subsolar is the pale yellow shade which tends to be quite a typical highlight colour. It's in a silky sheen finish so it adds a nice amount of glow without being overly shimmery. It's actually my least used shade although I know it's really popular with other people, I just find the other shades sit better with my complexion.

The last shade to mention is Equinox, a bright Coppery Peach with metallic finish, similar to that of Hemisphere. The warm golden hues really brighten up my makeup look when I feel like I need a bit of oomph.

I'd say the Solstice palette is absolutely perfect for pale skinned gals like myself & the Cleopatra's Kiss palette is more suited to warmer skin tones. However I still really want to get my hands on it as I'm so impressed with my Solstice palette, each shade is really pigmented & the quality is amazing.

8 Ways to Get Cosy

UK Blogger, UK Lifestyle Blog, Chelsea Peers Pyjamas, Getting Cosy, MandM Direct, Pug

I don't know about you guys but for me there is nothing better than fresh bedding, new pjs & all of the pug cuddles. It's my favourite way to get cosy, add in a candle, a mug of warm tea, a good book & voila you've got a perfect night in. Yeah, I'm a very wild 25 year old!

We spend a huge chunk of our time asleep so I enjoy treating myself to bedtime luxuries like soft new pyjamas & crisp, clean bedding. In fact I'm pretty sure my pyjama pile is greater than my everyday clothing but I'm totally okay with that. I'm a bit obsessed with my latest pair of pjs, the Chelsea Peers Macaroon Pyjama Set* because well, firstly THEY ARE COVERED IN PASTEL MACAROONS = mega Instagram points & secondly they are the comfiest jim jams I've ever worn. I posted a snipped of them on my Birthday Instagram photo & seriously I felt famous for the day, my DM's had never been so busy! You all wanted to know how to get your hands on these super cute pjs & I urge you to all hurry up & head over to MandM Direct because they are on sale for less than £14!!

Lets get cosy...

1. Stating the obvious here seeing as though I've already banged on about it in this post but comfy PJs/loungewear!
2. Pop on some fluffy socks too for extra cosiness.
3. Blankets, blankets & more blankets! Making a blanket den on the sofa & snuggling on down is my favourite hobby.
4. The biggest bubble bath you can imagine. Run a hot bath with a LUSH Bubble bar, throw in a bath bomb for good measures & soak until you're all wrinkled up!
5. HOT CHOCOLATE. I'm a big coffee drinker but you can't beat that taste of delicious melted chocolate, whipped cream & a heap of marshmallows.
6. Light lots of candles.
7. Cuddle up with your bf/gf/friend/pug/a pillow (lol)
8. Wrap up in your warmest jumper & biggest scarf, then adventure out into the fresh air.

Hello Kitty Tangle Teezer

UK Beauty Blogger, Liverpool Beauty Blogger, Hello Kitty Tangle Teezer, Tangle Teezer Review,
In my teens I was that girl obsessed with Hello Kitty, you name it & I most probably had the merchandise! As I'm sure you can imagine I was estatic when I was invited to the Hello Kitty x Tangle Teezer launch, being given the opportunity to have afternoon tea with Hello Kitty was like having all my teenage dreams granted at once.
The Hello Kitty collaboration comes in two colours, black & pink, both with an adorable polka dot print & of course the sweetest Hello Kitty design. I can't actually decide which is my favourite though, I'm a lover of all things girly & pink but also a big fan of monochrome too. The Tangle Teezer Compact Stylers are a handbag essential for me, the protective cover ensures the bristles don't get damaged so I can conveniently keep my hair knot free whilst on the go. 
Since discovering Tangle Teezer I've never used another brush, with my hair being so thick & frizzy they make brushing my hair much easier & completely pain-free. I'm forever recommending them to people because they actually changed my life!
What do you think of the cutest Tangle Teezer collaboration yet?

Love Carex

- Sponsored Content - 

Until I moved into my own home last year I didn't really give a second thought to hand wash, however now I'm always on the hunt for pretty bottles to sit on my bathroom sink. I'm quite fussy when it comes to scents too, they either need to be sweet or fruity so when I discovered the Carex Fun Edition range I was in my element. The Cola Bottle one is up there as my most loved hand wash, the sweet, fizzy fragrance is surprisingly refreshing. Another reason why I like Carex hand wash so much is the fact that they are so moisturising yet still kill 99.9% of bacteria so I know my hands are squeaky clean, but still super soft too. All Carex products are dermatologically tested by experts to ensure our hands are cleansed & protected.

Recently I went down to the 'Love Carex' event held at Mr Simms Sweet Shop in Liverpool ONE to celebrate the launch of the Fun Edition Love Hearts Hand Wash that hit the stores in June. Obviously I was really excited about the new hand wash as I love all things pink, cute & girly, plus Love Hearts are one of my fave sweeties so it is literally perfect for me! 
With the new hand wash being inspired by the retro Love Heart candy hosting the event at Mr Simms was the ideal location. The store was decorated with eye-catching window displays & sweetie displays to create some excitement and to highlight the fun side of Carex. Customers had the opportunity to pose for a photo with the selfie frame & could take home a free bottle of the Love Hearts hand wash if they spent over £3 in store.

The new Fun Edition Love Hearts Hand Wash can be found in Tesco for £1.40 a bottle, will you be picking one up? I know I'll be stocking up, I need an unlimited supply it's so good! 

Have you tried any of the Carex Fun Edition products?
