Hello my Loves!
With the weather in Scotland being absolutely miserable recently my skin hasn’t been the happiest.
I try not to wear as much foundation in the winter months to give my skin a chance to breath so the light coverage and hydration of this bb cream has been a saviour.
I often struggle to find bb creams to suit my skin tone as most tend to be far to dark for me and I’m left looking a touch orange so I was happy to see that the body shop’s bb cream had a light shades available.
I buff it in with a real techniques expert face brush and I think it blends really evenly and does give you a lovely hint of colour and pretty good coverage for a bb cream. For stubborn blemishes you will need a little concealer for them. But I just loved the dewy glow it gives my skin! Not one for those who like matte skin however, but i personally love the dewy look! Plus you can always pop a little powder on top.
Do you like bb creams?
If so, which one’s would you recommend.
Hello my loves!
Very surprisingly for me my last Shellac Manicure lasted almost 2 weeks, I know shellacs meant to last this long but being a Spa Therapist and having to do nail treatments doesn’t usually allow this luxury.
So for this week’s shellac Manicure I’ve actually gone for a mix of two colours, this is one of my favourite things about shellac. If the salon doesn’t have the exact shade your looking for you can actually layer two polishes together to get an entirely new colour, just ask your therapist and they should know the best colour combo’s as were usually the first to experiment with them.
This weeks colour is a base layer of Rose Brocade with everyone’s festive fave of Ruby Ritz on top.
I think the base layer of the rose really helps tone down Ruby Ritz which is usually a very bright Christmas Party Red.
What colours are you wearing on your nails this week?
Did you know you can layer your Shellac Colours?
Hello my loves!
Now I know what you may be thinking, a Christmas Candle in February? Well my favourite type of scents like a lot of people are rich cinnamon based smells which basically means my flat smells like Christmas all year round. Don’t get me wrong I love lighter floral/clean scents in the Summer but there’s just something about traditional Christmas scents that just make me feel cosy and warm which is definitely needed with the current Scottish weather.
I picked this set up in the Christmas sales and have been putting off burning it as I thought it was just too pretty to use but I can always keep the little tumbler and find some use for it.
This is the gorgeous Christmas Wish Home Collection by Neom Organics.
The set itself contains a single wick 150g candle with approximately 35 hours burn time and a matching room mist.
The smell itself is a gorgeous mix of mandarin, cinnamon and Tonka bean and is a part of Neom’s Destress Range.
The fragrance is so strong, with an amazing throw that fills the whole of my lounge and the scent can even be smelt in the next room.. it’s such a good quality candle, with such a pure scent due to high percentage of essential oils within the wax. You really can detect all three notes whilst the candle is alight.
It’s the epitome of glamour, luxury and organic goodness – all among the reasons I’ve come to adore Neom beauty and home fragrances. Real passion goes into these products… and you can tell.
Do you have any candle suggestions for me? What are your favourite scents?
Hello My Loves
This week for my nails I’ve gone for a very seasonal colour in CND Shellac’s Rubble. I think this colour is suited perfectly to the weather we’ve been having in Scotland lately, is anyone else excited as I am about the snow? I think this shade is great as it goes with everything especially big cosy jumpers and sweaters that a definitely needed at the moment. I also love how it’s a quite subtle shade that makes me feel more grown up compared to my usual bright choices.
Do you like this colour? Also what shades are you loving at moment?
