Events | Spectrum Collections AW16 Bombshell Preview

Last week I was lucky enough to attend Spectrum Collection's AW16 preview event, and be among the first to see their amazing Bombshell brush collection in all it's glory. The event was held in near Soho in central London, and it was a great opportunity to meet the Spectrum girls and lots of other lovely bloggers, as well as seeing the Bombshell brushes ahead of their launch at the end of September.

Spectrum was started by sisters Sophie and Hannah a couple of years ago, and before long, the brands' beautiful brushes with their pastel handles and ombre bristles were all over social media. Yep, these brushes are probably the most Instagrammable on the market, plus add to the fact that they are seriously affordable (brushes start at just £3.99) and are cruelty free and 100% vegan, well, you can see why Spectrum are the makeup brush brand of the moment.

Beauty | July Glossybox Review

I must admit I do love a beauty subscription box. There's something lovely about coming home to a little box of treats, and I always think it's a great way to try out brands and products that you wouldn't usually buy, without spending a fortune. This month I thought I would give GLOSSYBOX a go. Despite being around for over 5 years, and being the UK's number one beauty subscription box, I'm ashamed to say that I have subscribed to it before, so I thought it was about time. Plus, I'd heard that July's box contained mostly full sized products so I couldn't resist signing up.

With GLOSSYBOX, you can sign up a rolling monthly plan for £10 or month, or choose 3, 6 or 12 months subscriptions to get your boxes even cheaper- a 3 month box works out at only £9.50 a month, 6 month is £9 a month and 12 month is just £8.50 a month. All of these prices exclude P&P, but with this month's box worth over £35, you definitely get over and above your money's worth. Here's what was inside July's box.

Makeup | 5 of the best mascaras

Mascara has always been a favourite product of mine, in fact, like most young girls, it was the first item of makeup I ever bought and wore. Yep, rewind 17 years and there I was in Boots handing over a couple of pounds for a Collection 2000 one that left my lashes sticking together in clumps. Thankfully, my taste in mascaras has changed since then, and I now have an unhealthy obsession with anything that will transform my fine, straight lashes into gorgeous fluttery ones.

What's in my makeup bag | Current Favourites & New additions

I've not posted about 'what's in my makeup bag' for a while now, and being someone who is always adding new additions to it, I thought I would share some of my current favourites with you all. I'll admit it, I do always have my 'can't live without' products, such as Double Wear foundation by Estee Lauder, but I am always looking for new products that will add a different dimension to my look, or that speed up my getting ready process. Plus, if you are anything like me, you own far too many products to use on an everyday basis- I am forever finding 'old favourites' that I have stopped using for one reason or another, then fallen back in love with them. Here's whats new in my makeup bag this month...

Makeup | Crownbrush Makeup

I previously posted about my love for Crownbrush makeup brushes (read the full post here) and so I was very much looking forward to trying a couple of key pieces from their makeup range to see if they lived up to my high expectations. Being one for products that wont take up too much room in my makeup bag, I bought 2 of their chubby eye pencils, 'Frappe' and 'Copper Gold' and 'Mojave Rock' lipliner, and have been using all of them for the past few weeks non stop.

Health & Beauty | Get Healthier, Stronger teeth with REGENERATE

I was introduced to Regenerate products at a recent blogger event I attended, and after a few weeks of using their advanced toothpaste and boosting serum, I'm hooked. I'll admit it, I'm the first to claim that I think a white smile equals a healthy smile, and over the past few years have whitened my teeth to excess. They may look great, but they are over sensitive, and look thin and transparent, so this product is perfect for somebody like me.

Makeup | Get fuller, longer lashes with WunderExtensions

A couple of weeks ago I posted about WunderBrow, the fantastic one step eyebrow gel that stays put all day, and I have to say it totally lives up to the hype, and is now one of my everyday makeup bag essentials. When WunderExtensions, the lash extending and volumising mascara from the same range, landed on my doorstep, I couldn't wait to try it out and see if it was a amazing as my now favourite brow product.
