IT cosmetics- Is it worth the hype?

IT cosmetics is a brand I was SO egar to try! I heard so many amazing things about the CC cream I was desperate to try it! I actually got my sister to pick me one up a while back in the shade fair, it was slightly too dark for me so I was using lightening drops with it. 
I was super lucky to be sent over a few things from the IT Cosmetics team to try which I was very excited about.
First up is the CC Cream in Light- This shade is honestly perfect for me, I will still use fair in the summer but for my pale ghost like skin this is amazing. A little bit goes a long way and I often dont even need a brush to apply. I have ridiculously dry skin but thankfully this doesn't stick to dry patches and makes my skin look so glowy and dewy. I have been loving using this for days when I dont want to wear foundation, this is so light weight on the skin in comparison.

Next is the IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara- I love this, it makes my lashes look so long and voluminous. It is infused with new elastic stretch technologies, biotin and proteins. Its really dark black too and doesn't clump which I love.

IT cosmetics complexion perfection brush- This brush is so amazingly soft it feels so luxurious and high end. I love that its a two and one its perfect for foundation and concealer especially when travelling. This blends my foundation perfectly its one of the best brushes I have used in while.

Overall I am so impressed with IT Cosmetics I have loved everything that I have tried! I would definitely try more of their products in the future!

Shea moisture daily hydrating shampoo and conditioner



When it comes to shampoo and conditioner its probably one of the only things I'm not brand loyal about. I switch quite a lot in an attempt to find something that will help my dry scalp. I have eczema and really dry skin in general so this tends to affect my scalp a lot to. 

I was very kindly sent the Shea Moisture daily hydrating shampoo and conditioner. As soon as I read the bottle I knew it would be perfect for me, it is sulphate free and made from all natural ingredients.
It contains virgin coconut and shea oils that help the hair to feel lovely and sofa whilst being hydrated. 
The scent is a coconut lovers dream it smells lovely whilst not being overpowering, I have been using both the shampoo and conditioner for a few weeks now and I honestly love it. My scalp feels so nourished and soft and my hair is smooth and isn't at all greasy which I have found a lot with hair products containing coconut. 

Shea Moisture have many different ranges such as extra moisture, curl and shine and also growth and restore! They cater for so many different hair types and can be found in Boots!

Best things to do for a rainy day

breakfast in bed tray


Somethings rainy days can turn out to be the best days, I love nothing more than spending the day inside all cosy whilst it’s raining outside. I thought I would share my top five favourite things to do whilst it’s raining outside considering the weather we’ve been having in the UK I thought it might come in handy!

1. Watch Netflix on the sofa- there is nothing better than being warm inside on the sofa under a blanket with a cup of tea and some snacks watching a good show on Netflix. At the moment my favourites have been Riverdale and Dynasty but I would love some more recommendations.

2. Have a go at online bingo- although this isn’t something I do a lot due to funds it is something. I do  enjoy doing every now and then. I really like Boomtown Bingo for finding the best websites to use it has a star rating and makes finding a website to have a game of bingo really quick and easy. I of course don’t spend money I can’t afford to gamble and only encourage gambling responsibly so this website is really helpful and provides a little fun on a rainy day.

3. Baking - I’ve always loved baking since I was little it’s lovely to see a idea come to life and actually have something edible at the end of it. Lemon drizzle cake is my favourite to bake at the moment.

4. Jigsaws- I recently bought a santorini jigsaw and I’ve really been enjoying putting it together. I bought a jigsaw mat so it’s easy to put away and get back out. It’s really the perfect thing to do during a rainy day, before you know it’s tea time and you’ve been doing it for hours!


5. Reading- I recently got really into reading books again, I just finished still me by JoJo Moyes and I love it, I’ve read all three books now and I couldn’t recommend them enough! I be just started reading the F Word by Lily Pebbles which seems really good too! I definitely need some more recommendations for when that’s finished with though!

What’s your favourite thing to do on a rainy day?

Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define

If you haven't heard about this concealer yet where have you been? It has been one of the most hyped about launches this year so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I have never quite found the perfect concealer for me its either normally too dark or doesn't give me the coverage that I'm looking for.

I was so surprised by this, for £4 its honestly amazing the shade range is vast, I picked up C2 which was perfect for me. This includes a range of yellow, cool and natural tones claiming to be full coverage, cover blemishes and counter act dark circles.

I've now nearly used the whole tube of the concealer and I've already set up notifications for when my shade comes back in stock. I have had so many blemishes this past two months and this has covered them perfectly. Its lasted all day with only the odd touch up being needed. It also hasn't stuck to my dry patches which is always a worry for me since I have really dry skin and the shade is perfect for me.

I would honestly recommend this too anyone its anyone it has been one of my favourite purchases so far this year.

Makeup Revolution reloaded palette

Makeup Revolution is a brand I've tried a lot from in the past and always been impressed with the quality in comparison to the price so when I saw the new eyeshadow palette filled with warm tones I was really excited to try it.

makeup revolution reloaded palette This contains a mixture of both matte and shimmer shades and has 15 shades in total. Each shade is so pigmented which is crazy for £4! The warm shades are amazing only a little is needed on the brush to get a great colour pay off. They last all day and I get barley any fall out whilst using the shades and they are so easy to blame. There are so many different eye looks that can be create with these range of shades, the warm tones really suit my skin tone and hair colour and are perfect for the in-between seasons as there is a mix of pinky/ red tones. 

The palettes aren't too bulky so are great for travelling, I love that there is a white shade too which is perfect for the corner of the eyes meaning you dont have to take a separate eye shadow.  Makeup revolution is also cruelty free which is always a bonus too.

The Makeup Revolution reloaded palette is available at Superdrug
