What's on my iPhone?...

I saw this tag video on one of my recent YouTube catch-up sessions and thought it would transpire well into a blog post. I love seeing what apps people use on a day to day basis so here's what my iPhone 5 is loaded up with: ...

Event: #shhealthysmile at Everyman Cinema

At the beginning of the month, I was invited down to the Everyman Cinema in Leeds by the lovely team over at Simplyhealth to enjoy a good ol' giggle with my Sister...

YourTea Tiny Tea Teatox

So here we are 7 days into my Tiny Tea Teatox and I've really enjoyed it! The first thing I noticed is how much my skin has cleared up. I genuinely didn't think that this was a benefit of the tea, considering it is essentially a 'weight loss' system ...

Coral Ombre Nails

Not a perfect ombré, but these colours look so good together that I can forgive the fact that I don't have five perfectly gradiented coral tones in my nail polish collection ...

The £7 Wonder Palette: Rimmel Glam'Eyes HD Palette in Brixton Brown...

I'm not much of an eyeshadow wearer. Between getting up for work at 5am and a dwindling social life due to night shifts, I really don't have the time nor the patience for it. However, since this little beauty found its way into my collection I've been blending it onto my lids more often then I care to remember, making it the most used palette I own.
Rimmel Glam'Eyes HD in Brixton Brown - £6.99
This is literally the most perfect palette for this time of year, and the colours can create anything from a simple day look to a gorgeous on trend berry smokey eye. My favourite shade has to be the red tones bronze in the centre, reminiscent of MAC's Cranberry, it instantly adds something different to the traditional neutral brown smokey eye. I received so many compliments at work when I was wearing it. The highlight shade is ultra versatile too and it's even found its way onto my cheekbones recently.
Also wearing L'Oreal Super Liner Brow Artist and  Sleek Blush in Rose Gold.
Here, I am wearing the light highlighting shade in the inner corners, the centre shade all over the lid and the darkest colour in the palette in the outer corner and under the lash line. I can definitely see myself wearing this look on Christmas Eve with my cheesy Jumper. With the hype around High End palettes like the Naked 3 and Marc Jacobs offerings you could be excused for forgetting about hidden High Street gems.

Rimmel really has some fantastic and affordable products out at the minute and I can pick no fault with everything I have tried from the brand. Have you settled on your Christmas Party look yet? Will you be going for High Street or High End?

Much Love,

Victoria's Secret: Sexy Little Things Noir EDP...

With notes of "sparkling nectarine, sultry amber and exotic cattelaya orchid" Sexy Little Things Noir is not my typical scent, but I couldn't resist it's sultry scent and the bottle now sits beautifully on my fragrance shelf. 
Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Noir 50ml - £44*
When you first spray the fragrance, the fruity note of nectarine is definitely the first thing that hits you but as it settles down the muskier and woodier facets come out, making it a stunning evening scent. Working at Victoria's Secret means I do get to try all of their fragrances every time I detour through the Beauty section, which makes this one all the more special as I actually bought it. I will however admit that the packaging did sway me to make the purchase, it's just so gorgeous and who can resist an atomiser?!

The wear time of this scent is about 4 hours, but it's such a lovely scent that I don't mind re-spritzing every now and then. If you're stuck for gift ideas, I'd definitely go and check out your nearest Victoria's Secret store as the Beauty Department has some amazing scent gift sets at the moment.

What's your favourite Victoria's Secret Beauty product?

Much Love,
