So Pin-interest Worthy: July 2017 Glossybox Unboxing

July 2017 Glossybox Unboxing
So can we first take a moment to appreciate the beauty that is this months glossy box. Glossybox has really outdone themselves this month. I have to say before even seeing the full contents of the box what pulled me in first is the spectrum brush and the packaging on the box that beautiful coral colour and gold writing just screams summer (definitely aint putting this box in the bin will probably put some summer essentials in it).So before we get into my full thoughts I want to first give you a breakdown on what you can expect to get in this months box and my full thoughts on it.

May and June 2017 Favourites

May and June 2017 Favourites

So today I got a May and a June Favourites for you since a lot of the products I've been liking in May were quite similar for June. For my monthly favourites there is a bit of a mix of things not just beauty and makeup because I really wanted to share with you some other types of items I have been loving or using on repeat.


Tuesday, 11 July 2017


So in May I was extremely happy to find out I was selected to review a Yesstyle Beauty Box. I was over the moon to say the least because I absolutely love Korean products especially when it comes to skincare. Before getting into the contents of this box fully I have to say that its such a generous box it had the perfect balance between skincare products and makeup products all of which I was looking forward to try. So I'm going to let you know every single item that was in this box as well as my brief thoughts.

Vegan Food

So last week Saturday was a bit different for me I was invited to attend a launch of a vegan restaurant in Camden.Despite it was a pretty full Saturday for me I just couldn't pass up this opportunity for multiple reasons. For starters if you've been watching my instastories you would know how much I love cooking, visiting restaurants and trying new food. *Lets be honest my idea of a great night is watching back to back episodes of master-chef.

Tanya burr review

So recently Tanya Burr released a new collection called Chasing the Sun. As most people do I tend to buy products from YouTubers that I watch there channels or I'm familiar with them in some way. So I think with her previous collection I never really had any interest in trying them. I'm not a person that follows hype, so despite I did hear some great things about a few of her products there probably was other makeup products that stood out to me.

For instance when the Carly Bybel Palette came out I was interested because I was familiar with her, watched her video's, tried some of her makeup looks and lets just be real the palette is beautiful. There will be a review up on it very soon.

5 Types of Tv Shows I Tend To Watch On a Cosy Night In

5 Types of Tv Shows I Tend To Watch On a Cosy Night In

I've got to say I love a night-in having a family of 3 with my extended family living in 5 minutes distance of us helps us to get together and make some really good memories.
Despite most people are happy on Saturday because they can go out without worrying about work the next day my best Saturdays are those evenings when I've got a really great takeaway on the way, snacks in the cupboard and some type of show on that will help me to not think about work related taskI also love to relax and unwind with a hot chocolate and loads of throws in a tidy house I realise that helps me as well to be comfy its just a relief when I don't have to think about dishes, laundry ect. I'm not a clean freak* but I get easily distracted so these are the things that have helped me to get ready for a night in,(a  facemask sometimes is also a great addition).So these are the 5 types of shows I tend to watch on a cosy night in...

My Makeup Ban Wishlist

So I am half way through the month of June when it come to the makeup ban and its been so tough.On the plus side my account has been looking a lot more healthier than normal and I've been using a lot more of my current makeup. This ban has left me so astonished at how much makeup I purchase outside of my budget and how many makeup products that are just sitting in my house. These last two weeks has definitely been a week of rediscovery for me.

On another note it has left me noting down some of the products that I need in my collection and strangely enough these are not just products that seem all the more tempting because of the ban these are products that are quite raved about.

How to Grow Your Instagram Following:3 Ways To Totally Up Your Instagram Game

Ways to grow your Instagram Followers

Gosh where do I start... In terms of Instagram I absolutely love this social platform its my favourite platform out of all of them. Of course like any normal human being I have days where I want to completely distance myself from it or throw my phone out the window especially with this follow for follow thing that's been happening and also the fact that they've changed the algorithm so that the most popular post gets seen first( those that built there following before this change you are so darn lucky). 


Thursday, 1 June 2017



In the new year I really wanted to try a new foundation. I've been using Mac and Bobby Brown Foundation for a long time and I really wanted to see what else was out there. After seeing a review on Youtube of the NARS All Day Luminous I went to selfridges intent on getting that one with my friend. My friend wanted to purchase the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation.

HiddenBeau-T Turns a Year: Highlights and Lessons I've Learnt

So yesterday my blog turned a year and I have to admit I have grown through blogging its funny to think that before I used to press publish my hand would shake and I would feel my heart race right after. I don't know about you but it isn't easy putting your thoughts your opinions and the essence of who you are out there for the world to see, lets be frank we live in a world that judges you for wearing mismatched socks sometime haha. I have such a respect for bloggers,youtubers, content creators in general because the battle between who you want to be and what your audience wants you to be is REAL!

Look Incredible Standard Box Review: April 2017

So I've been on the hunt for a beauty box for quite some time now. I have to admit I am uber fussy when it comes to which beauty box I choose to spend my hard earned penny's on, so much so that I would rather wait for the reviews or look at other bloggers sneak peak of the box before deciding to buy it.(providing its not a

Liquid Lipsticks Love: Gerrard Cosmetics Longwear Lipsticks #1

So I wanted to start a new series on liquid lipsticks because of my love for them and because a lot of the liquid lipsticks I post on my Instagram I've always had questions in terms of formula and whether I liked the different lipsticks I posted about. To be honest I don't like every liquid lipstick in fact my first experience wearing one was so bad it took me a while to reach for any of them again.

Today I will be discussing the Gerrard Cosmetics Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I bought these for half price on beauty bay

Gift Idea's for Him

So this is a slightly different post than normal because  its more geared towards the men in your life. I have to mention that my husband hardly ever comes over to read my blog because he said I write post mainly for the ladies so he was quite happy when I asked him what types of gifts he would look forward to receiving as a present. His birthday was 2 weeks ago and I've had some hit and misses in regards to gift ideas but from speaking to my husband,4 brothers and other male friends  I  have managed to come up with some gift ideas.

Product Review: The Konjac Sponge

Some time ago I was sent a Konjac Sponge from the friendly people at the Konjac Co to do a review.

But there range covers a wide variety of skin types from 100% pure Konjac for all skin types,  Bamboo Charcoal for Teen Oily or spot prone skin,  French Clay for combination skin, added french pink clay for Tired Damaged or Devitalised Skin, Pure

So what happened to March, at the rate where going where going to be saying happy new year in no time. For this month I didn't have loads of favourites where skin care and other items were concerned because its been a pretty hectic month for me so I didn't try a load of new things.

Thursday, 6 April 2017


So this year I attended Blog Con London hosted by Scarlett London. The dates leading up to it I was very excited yet nervous for some reason I thought there was going to be seminars in different rooms followed by a few brands in a next room. I just wasn't sure how both the conference and the Brands would be incorporated . The event took place at Queen Elizabeth Centre II Centre in Westminister and I have to admit I am always quite happy with the location of Scarletts events there always near to the train station and are easy to find.

With that said I've decided that its better late than never because their were some products that really stood out to me this month. So with that said lets dive in with a short post on some of the items I found myself reaching for ALOT in February.

What's in my Travel Makeup/Beauty Bag| Antigua

So going to a hot island with beauty and makeup products was very interesting for me this year. I've travelled to hotter countries but its been a long time and at that time I wasn't that bothered about makeup ect apart from lip products because it was short breaks and I would be back in the UK before you know it.

Product Review:Maybelline New York The Falsies Push-up Angel Mascara

Sometimes when trying out a range of products you tend to overlook a few of them especially when they were bought through impulse. I bought this Maybelline New York Falsies Push-up Angel with no intention of doing a review until my loyal followers wanted to know my thoughts on this item so this review is for all of you beauts : )

I am currently using a mascara that's alright so when I saw this mascara in Superdrug I thought that it was for false lashes and not to give the illusion of false lashes so I didn't use it for some time because I didn't feel the false lashes I was wearing needed it.While vacationing in Antigua I ended up using this Mascara before going out and I was astonished at the results so I had to share them with you. So lets dive into the review...


The Falsies push-up Angel uses its specially angled brush to sweep lashes to the side while lifting and plumping from the roots. It promises to deliver a voluminous arch for dramatic makeup look. Maybelline also states that the styling formula holds the lifted winged look in place and is Ophthalmologist tested.


Tuesday, 14 February 2017


So recently I have been enjoying looking at pictures of everyone's lush purchases and it dawned on me that I have never purchased anything from Lush.I have gotten a few lush items as gifts for my birthday and Christmas which I have loved but I have never been into bath bombs because I can get really busy and the shower is just more practical with my lifestyle and I have always preferred the shower more for some reason.

January 2017 Favourites

I really cant believe where in February already it feels like just yesterday we were saying Happy New Year and thinking about our achievements for 2017. January really flew past me but I'm determined to make February a productive one so I thought I would kick start this month with some post that you don't usually see from me I did a Valentine's Makeup Look that was incredibly fun with another Beauty Blogger and today's post I will be talking about my favourites in January.

As a beauty, lifestyle and fashion blogger it is really hard to narrow down on the products that are your favourites sometimes because there are so much products to try but I had some that I was really pleased with in January and I thought I would share them with you.


Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep- I spoke about how amazing I found the Vichy its a definite favourite when it comes to non- makeup products .Despite its a sample it's made a big impression on me hands down  cant wait to purchase the large jar you can read my review Here!

Vitamin E Skincare Refreshing Toning Mist-  Not everything that is an in house brand is poor quality, I literally reached for this because Superdrug was having a promotion now I find myself spritzing it onto my face every morning for my morning routine. I really like it, its very cheap and cheerful but I feel its made a difference when it comes to my skin looking more toned and I like the fact its a spray bottle so I don't have to grab a cotton wool/pad like my other toners.


Smashbox Gel Liner- When I first purchased this I did not have a clue how to get it working, its not my first eye liner but its the first one that I have used that has instructions in terms of the actual use, but once I got the hang of it its been amazing. So its two clicks one for each eye and the way the actually tip is slanted it's made it soo much easier for me to get a nice  winged look without smudges. I have to admit I am not the greatest with eyeliner in fact anything that has to do with eyes I hold my breathe till its done eyelashes, eyebrows the whole eye family lol but I'm getting better. So yay I'm happy with this product.

Sleek Matte Me( Old Hollywood) - Gosh this is my go to when it comes to matte liquid lipsticks I just love the colour and the formula of this one, I'm usually a fan of berry tones so this one is right up my street.

Skeek True Colour Lipstick( Dare)- When I swatched this lipstick in Superdrug OMG!. Your probably thinking I bang on a lot about Superdrug I practically live there, its even worst that there's one near my house. But as I was saying when I swatched this lipstick I couldn't leave it the colour is what got me first it was like a cross between a berry and a vamp lipstick and when I used it at home I loved it even more the formula is creamy, non patchy gosh I love this lipstick I am definitely going to try their others.

Zoeva Cocoa Blend- Another winner, since I purchased this  palette I have literally abandoned all of my other palettes because I absolutely love it, their are some clear favourites in it but overall I would use all the colours. Another thing the colours are so pigmented and the eye shadows glide on really well with hardly no fallout. If you want to purchase your own or any of the other Zoeva palettes you can find it Here!


Oral B Cross Action Pro 2000 Electric Toothbrush- I purchased this in the beginning of the year because I was really paranoid whether I was brushing too hard or too soft because I started to feel some sensitivity. I've been struggling with the decision to transition  to an electric toothbrush for a while because of cost and just being unfamiliar with them. I purchased this toothbrush since there was loads of sales on for them in the end I got mine for £25 from Amazon after it had sold out in Asda for the same price.This was an absolute bargain because the original price was £70 and purchasing this is the best decision I have made. The toothbrush lights up when I am scrubbing too hard and I've noticed a difference in my teeth because the toothbrush head spins and vibrates doing all the work for me. 

2017 Organiser-  I really wanted an organiser for 2017 but I wanted one that is small yet with a lot of  different sections to organise my day to. I was totally sold by the cover at first it said " Its tiring being this organised" with a cute cat yawning. I guess I have a thing for cute journals and organisers.

Ariande Grande Perfume Set- This perfume is so beautiful I cant go on about it enough it just smells amazing I just want another bottle because this one is getting used up fast its the Ari by Ariande Grande if you'd like to purchase a bottle of your own you can find it Here!.

Reload.- I started trialing this product in January after receiving this in December and this cute gingham optimiser has not left my bag since. I wrote a whole review on this brand in detail because I loved all 3 of the perfumes they sent me and I am looking forward to trying the others. If you want to see the full review on these fragrances you can find it Here!

So this is my first favourites post and my hopes are that it wouldnt be the last since I am trying more products. Let me know if any of my favourites are your favourites or what are your favourites in general. I love watching youtube favourites and reading blog favourites alot free to leave me a link if you did a similar post I would love to read it.

Valentines Red Lip Makeup Collab// Laura Living Life

Hi Everyone, So this is really exciting for me because its my first collaboration with another blogger! Myself and Laura have decided to collab and create two different takes on a makeup look featuring the red lip for Valentine's Day. I cant wait to go read her post her makeup looks always looks so flawless! I added a gold highlighter but it kinda went all wrong when my lighting decided to go and it didn't show up in my photo's but I still love the look because the eye shadow I used came through regardless of the lighting.

Vichy Product Review

So today I will be reviewing the Idealia Skin Sleep by Vichy Laboratories.  I received this sample a few months back at an event I attended and I was quite excited to try it, not sure if it was the pretty pink packaging that grabbed me or the fact that prior to receiving this sample I didn't really hear about Vichy.

Since this is a skin sleep cream I mentioned on my instastories that I will be trialling it for the next few nights within my normal night time routine to see if it made a difference. This is a small sample so I could only use it for a shorter period but a little does go a long way.

Sleek Cleopatra Kiss Review

So recently Sleek has been bringing out quite a nice range of highlighters that are part powder part cream and they have been making an impression on buyers worldwide. The last highlighter they created was solstice and that was very popular with the majority, I was about to buy Solstice as I had just began to use highlighters myself because the reviews and the looks on YouTube were amazing. I tend to go on and on about sleek products but that's because they always leave an impression on me when I try them in Superdrug. 


Friday, 13 January 2017


So just after Christmas I've been doing quite a bit of shopping, normally I don't do much sale shopping after the Christmas period because if I really really like something I tend to just pay for it but I've got to say 2017 has had some really great bargains and Instagram and a few of my friends have really showed me why everyone just waits till after Christmas to get their most coveted items. I am unable to list all the items I've purchased because I can't really remember them all but I will let you know in summary some of the thing's I've managed to purchase and some of the stores online and physical that I've been to. 


Wednesday, 11 January 2017


So a few day before Christmas I received this box from reload to review, I did a boomerang on my instastories moments after it just arrived because I was extremely excited to receive this since *prior to receiving this product I have never really heard about reload apart from seeing a few pictures with these uber cute mini boxes floating around on instagram. So after getting through the hustle and bustle of Christmas I wanted to give this box of goodies a good try so as to give an honest well rounded review.
