Sleek Oh So Special Palette

Helloo lovelies, as you've probably noticed I've took a little break off of blogging, or you haven't noticed at all..awkward..but anyway! I think it's good to take a break once in a while and recharge those batteries but I'm back! Hope you've all had a lovely Easter I sure did, eating your weight in chocolate and chocolate for breakfast good times! Enough rambling from me, onto the post!

Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette, Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette Review

This was one of the first Sleek palettes I purchased after hearing so many good things about them and it didn't disappoint. Sleek eyeshadow palettes are now my favourites! This is the Oh So Special palette which is a pink based eyeshadow palette each of the names are celebration themed including; Bow which totally didn't influence my purchase in any way..

Getting A Good Night Sleep

Getting A Good Night Sleep

Getting a good night sleep is so so important, there's lots of little things you can do to ensure you have a good night sleep so here's a few little tips!

Switch Off ♡
Yup it's hard but we all need to do it from time to time completely switch off put the phone away and relax in bed with a hot chocolate and a favourite movie or a good book, sounds so relaxing doesn't it?

Try A Sleep Mask ♡
I've been testing out an overnight sleep mask by Beauty Kitchen it's the Beauty Kitchen Abyssinian Oil Night Halo Mask* ideal for Sleeping Beauty's. The mask which has a scent that's said to give you a good nights sleep while it hydrates and gives your skin a detox as you sleep! Love the fact you can pop this on at night and just wash it off in the morning. It's in the form of a balm that feels instantly hydrating on the skin when applied. I was expecting it to dry like a face mask but it didn't my face felt damp all night like I'd gone a bit too crazy with moisturiser. The scent of this is so so lovely it has hints of orange it's so nice and strong so you don't need to use much of this at all, in the morning your face feels soft hydrated and refreshed. Really nice little product fit for a Princess!

Get An Early Night Sleep ♡
We've all been there a quick check of Instagram at midnight and by 2am you've been on 10 profiles and scrolled back to their first posts or ended up watching endless amounts of YouTube videos but try and set a time especially if you haven't been sleeping too well and just get a good early night sleep.
Have a Shower before bed - There's lots of calming shower products that are ideal to use to ensure you're relaxed and get a good night sleep. I've been loving this Body Wash* by Weleda it's lavender scent is so nice, lavender is such a well known scent for helping relax, calm the mind and help get a good nights sleep.  This one is a body wash and smells so nice! If you love lavender you need to give this one a try.

Having A Bath ♡
Baths are one of the most relaxing things whether you're a Lush fan or a bath product fan there are so many products out there just to make your bath a bit more relaxing with relaxing scents. This one by Kneipp is a Herbal Sweet Dreams Bath Oil* that contains Hops that is said to have calming qualities especially at bedtime, you just fill the cap and pop it into your bath and wow the scent of this is so strong even with just a small amount seriously it's so nice, think lemon with lavender, definitely recommend this one for a relaxing calming bath.

What are your favourite products and tips for a good night sleep?

Youtube Made Me Buy It

Youtube Made Me Buy It

I've seen this tag floating about the YouTube world and decided to do it on here, why not? It's the YouTube Made Me Buy It Tag now I'm not going to lie YouTube has made me buy a lot of things so this one may turn into a bit of a series some I'm glad I purchased some..not so much darn, onto the products..

Maybelline Eye Eraser Concealer
This isn't in the picture because I've lost it somewhere to be honest and I couldn't find it but this one was a disappointing one for me I just couldn't get on with it. I guess it's a classic case of "What works for someone else might not work for you" now ain't that the truth. I'm used to using concealer with wands but this one has a sponge applicator and I could get enough product out no matter how much I tried maybe it was a dud one I don't know but I could not get the hang of it tried to use it a few times still couldn't get enough product up flung it to the side (probably why I can't actually find it now) and carried on using my trusty Wake Me Up Concealer I was so disappointed with this one, has anyone else found the same or did I just have a broken one let me know please?!

NYX Lip Cream
I think in fact I'm sure it was Zoe (Zoella) that made me purchase these but as soon as I tried it I was sold from the get go these really are amazing silky soft lip creams. I'm so glad I gave these a chance must buy some more shades.

Maybelline Sensational Mascara
Another Maybelline one here that I'm still not convinced with (sorry Maybelline) I am a big fan of Maybelline (they're Baby Lips range is the best thing ever haul post here) and if you have heard of this mascara you'd know everyone loves it..then there's me that just can't get along with it and I really want to give it another try. Every time I see someone use this on a tutorials their lashes look incredible then I use it and it doesn't quite work. I'm sat on the fence with this one but I do want to keep trying it, everyone tell me your secrets on how to use this mascara I must be doing something wrong!

You know that game that everyone's still obsessed with..yeah that one Candy Crush! You pop on to play for a while and 5 hours later..yep still on it. But this isn't about the game..Ohhh no..this is about Candy Crush Lip Balms. Yep feed your game obsession with these cute novelty lip balms, these are so ideal for a gift if you know someone who loves this game, I mean who doesn't?!

March Favourites

I've got quite a few favourites for a change so let's get started!!

Maybelline Pink Gold Tattoo
I cannot rave about how much I love the Maybelline Tattoo Eyeshadows I definitely need to get me some more of them. If you don't know these are cream based eyeshadows that are super blendable and really easy to apply for a quick make up look. The pink gold is a pretty subtle pink shimmer shade perfect for Spring.

Winnie The Pooh Lip Balm*
I love this little lip balm from Mad Beauty, yes it being Disney-Themed makes me love it that extra bit more it's just so darn cute but it helps keep my lips hydrated through the day.

Rimmel Oh My Gloss Purr..Glossy Cat
This dare I say it may be my favourite lip gloss ever, it's a perfect not really there lip gloss shade that makes your lips super glossy, I looooooove this and the name is just too adorable. I need to get 6 of these haha!

Animal Headband*
I've also been loving this cute little headband from Mad Beauty it's so adorable and I use it everytime I apply my make up as it keeps my hair away from my face and it's adorable!

Pink NYC Nail Polish ♡
I've been loving this nail polish by NYC, it's a really muted pink shade that looks so pretty on. Gotta love pretty pink nails in Spring!

Sabrina The Teenage Witch
I've been Re-watching all of Sabrina The Teenage Witch episodes and I literally forgot how good this show was! I've literally been watching it everyday.

I'm a Disney girl, I love Disney movies and I hadn't watched Frozen for such a long time until recent and now I love it all over again! If you haven't seen it and you love Disney movies you HAVE to watch this..do you want to build a snowmaaaaan?..

I've watched the new Ghostbusters movie twice..okay maybe 3 times now but it's seriously so so good! I freaking love Melissa McCarthy! Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it!

New In From Nivea

Nivea Creme and Oil Pearls, Nivea Silk Shower Mousse, New Nivea Releases

Nivea Shower Creme and Oil Pearls*
You know when you first try out a product and you know from the first use you're going to love it? Yeah that's what happened when I first tried this out. This shower Creme contains argan oil which is ideal for hydrating skin, argan oil has been added to a lot of lip products to maintain hydrated lips. The Creme itself is like something The Little Mermaid would use, I loved it instantly, the Creme is a pearl texture with small pearls in that are not harsh on the skin in any way they just gently exfoliate the skin while making you look like a sparkly Princess as you rub it in forming into a foam and when it's washed off leaving it feeling clean and soft. It's a Princess worthy Shower Creme and its my new favourite shower product - Nivea are becoming my favourite brand for these products. This is available in three scents Ylang Ylang - which is the one I have and I think it's the perfect scent that no one wouldn't like it's not too strong and not too light, Cherry Blossom - which I now want and Lotus - in case you haven't guessed I want this too now!

Nivea Silk Shower Mousse*
Another new product from Nivea is a Silk Shower Mousse the first thing I really liked about this is that it has a scratch and sniff sticker so you can test the scent before you buy it this is seriously so good! There's so many times you want to sniff a product to see if you like the scent or not and you can't so I love the fact they've done this, well done Nivea! Now for the product itself I've never known or tried a shower mousse before especially if I read the instructions right you apply just before you get into the shower it basically looks just like a hair mousse and you rub it onto your skin which lathers and sinks in really quickly and you just wash it off in the shower it's so good in the mornings when you want a quick shower in a hurry leaving your skin feeling silky smooth and soft.
Nivea are smashing it with their bath body and shower ranges right now *heart eye emojis*
