February round up

February has been a bit of a weird month. January took about 14 years to pass us by and I feel like I barely blinked and February was over, so that's kinda crazy! I have taken a step back this month as its been one of those months where I have had days I wanted to curl into a ball and not resurface, and other days have been so manic I haven't had chance to catch my breath never mind think! So lets have a run down of this half an hour long month!

January round up

January has seemed a little slower than the back end of 2017 which whizzed by in a flash and I can't begin to even believe how quick it went. January feeling slower is definitely a blessing as it has given me a lot of time to reflect on things and I have definitely tried to look after myself a little more too. I thought I would share with you a little round up of my month and give you an overview of what I am up to and what I have been doing.

A Kiehls event

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by the lovely Saffia over at Kiehls in Nottingham if I could help to organise an event with them, and I was delighted! It is the first event I have helped to organise and I definitely think I want to organise more in the future, so the cogs in my brain are working hard to think of some fund things I might like to plan in the future. I was super excited to go along to the event and have a masterclass and see some more of the products as I haven't tried everything from Kiehls but have see a wide range of products and so I love seeing more in action.

Redken No blow dry airy cream

I am a huge fan of leaving my hair to air dry. Maybe its laziness, maybe its just convenient and less damaging to, but honestly I don't really know the answer. When I got the Redken no blow dry airy cream in my advent calendar I was very excited to try it out and see if it made a difference to my hair and the way it dried without blow drying it.

A step up for hand wash and hand cream

Hand wash is one of those things I never really put much thought into. I pick up whichever one is on offer at the time I am shopping and think no more about it. So when I received this lovely hand wash and hand lotion set as as a gift I really began to think about how I never considered getting nice hand wash. So should we be investing in nicer hand wash or not?

Dior Poison girl perfume

Dior isn't a brand I usually gravitate to for perfume, I don't really know why as they are quite a big designer brand but it is one that has never drawn me in to look at. I think its because I once remember someone having a really heavy perfume on and someone saying it smelt like Dior Poison and it being so heavy it kinda put me off. I am not one to be deterred though and when I got this sample of the Poison girl fragrance I decided to give it a go.

Kat Von D Lock it baking duo

I have been wanting to test out the Kat Von D foundation and concealer for the longest time, I hear such good things, but my skin is so pale I find it so hard to match foundation online, and have to be colour matched where possible, or at least swatch a colour in store before committing. I hadn't been able to get to store and so when I saw this kit I thought I would take a chance and just get the kit as I thought it cant be the worst thing in the world to try it out, even if it wasn't quite the right shade.
