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.

Magnitone make up remover tested

Ever thought how easy it would be to remove make up with just water? Well, the Magnitone wipe out make up remover offers just that. I know there are a lot of these on the market, but when I got the Magnitone version in my Advent calendar I couldn't wait to try it, and was holding off to do so when my husband could take me some good blog pictures, however, I then decided to just film the process and now I am going to share with you a roundup of my overall thought after using this a few more times.
