The World of Beatrix Potter at Lake Windermere

 Lake Windermere is one of my favourite places in the whole world. I'd definitely pay good money to get married here in the future - Just imagine the photo's. The whole place is so picturesque with scenic views looking over and beyond the lake. I've wrote about the lakes on more than one on occasion, but a reason to visit is another reason to write about it. This time we experienced new surroundings, different walks and made a visit to The World of Beatrix Potter.

Freedom Makeup | Romance & Jewels Eyeshadow Palette

 It's no secret that eyeshadow palettes are my beauty guilty pleasure. I must have dupes of high end palettes twice over from different brands but I don't care, palettes are my makeup love and I'm not ashamed to admit it. When new brand, Freedom Makeup, was introduced to us a few months ago the eyeshadow palettes were definitely the makeup product I found myself checking out first, and with an impressive range available there's something to suit everyone - and prices start from just £2.50

Lifestyle | The Great Outdoors

ENJOY SUMMER ON A BUDGET - Evening you beautiful people. I hope you are all very well? I wrote this post a couple of weeks ago when I thought British Summer time had hit us. Of course it did hit us in typical British style and the sunshine didn't last very long at all! Hopefully the sun and heat decide to return and we're able to raid our Summer wardrobes once more. I've been exploring some beautiful countryside at late and I thought I'd share some of the places that cost next to nothing to go for the day. If you're ever around the Lancashire area or looking for a staycation then you're in for a treat.

NEW Zoella Fresh Fizz Bar | The Tutti-Frutti Range

 I always think it's great to see bloggers / vloggers (people like me and you) achieve such great success. Whether that's bringing out a book, starring in a movie or bringing out a beauty range like Zoe. I've followed Zoe greatly amongst her various social media and Youtube channels and were really happy to hear she was releasing a beauty range. The packaging it self screams Zoe and instantly reminds me of her blog, which makes it easy to tell she had a huge input in this range. For me, personally, I couldn't justify spending money on the bath bits and pieces - having got a cupboard full - but one thing I lack in are bath fizzers. So when the time came I picked up the Zoella Fizz Bar and I loved it. Recently Latest in Beauty opened their first ever beauty awards for 2015 and the fizz bar was up amongst the picks for new product and it was a definite winner for me. When choosing your 'dream picks' it is in fact the fresh fizz bar that was up for grabs, and I couldn't wait to add it to my box.

Dare To Pout With Freedom Lipsticks - Review

 Apart from eyeshadow palettes I love nothing more than a good lipstick and there's many budget brands out there that deliver in terms of quality and pigmentation at a really affordable price. Freedom Makeup being one of them so, I was excited to receive 5 of those lipsticks and later purchase another 2. I was sent the Pro Pink Lipstick Collection which is buy 4 get 1 free - and at a pound each that's not bad at all.

Latest in Beauty - My Dream Picks | Beauty Awards 2015

You've probably heard by now that Latest in Beauty are running their very first beauty awards this year. If you haven't heard then where have you been? Basically you're able to vote for your favourites amongst 8 categorises, picking your dream box, and automatically being added into a huge prize draw to win every single full size finalist product worth £875. 

There's 3 boxes to choose from - which is great for any budget - with prices starting from just £8.99 (excluding postage). There's Box 1 (£8.99) and you choose 3 products, Box 2 (£12.99) and you choose 6 products, or Box 3 (£16.99) and you choose 9 products. All products available are the same for each box you can just pick and choose whether you want 3, 6, or 9 products. I went for box 3 just because I'd never be able to decide on just the 3 or 6, and even though I haven't tried everything in my box there's a couple I have tried and the rest I'm looking forward to using in the near future.

My Summer Favourites ☼

 Now that Summers finally graced the British shores and given us a little sunlight and warmth I thought rather than share with you a monthly favourites I'd do a Summer one instead. Now, I'm a bit of a plain Jane when it comes to swapping my makeup round and don't do enough to justify a monthly favourites but, this is the next best thing, a peak into what I've been loving over the last couple of weeks/months and will do right into and probably beyond Summer.

Makeup Revolution ♥ Mermaids Forever Ultra Eyeshadows Palette

Almost unheard of me to go a month without doing a Makeup Revolution post, but that's just how long it's been. I haven't done a review post since May on Makeup Revolution. Today I am back with the Mermaids Forever palette and it's an absolute stunner. It's got a lot of shimmer, which won't be to everyone's cup of tea, but for me, personally, I love shimmery shades more than matte. This palette is only what I can describe as an explosion of colour and there's lot of vibrant, bright shades and a couple of more wearable nudes.
