LUSH 'SNOW TIME' GIFT BOX


Recently, I was very thoughtfully given a LUSH Gift Box by my sister in law. I was beyond over the moon when I received the surprise package as I've always been a massive fan of LUSH but never really indulged myself in buying too much of their products, especially in this past year. Before I get into whats inside the box, can we just please take a minute to appreciate the gorgeous packaging? I'm a sucker for cute festive wrappings and boxes. Because of this, I debated for a good few over whether or not I should wait to see the contents inside the box so I can take blogpost photos. That thought only lasted for a couple of seconds though as I could not contain my excitement to see the goodies inside!

UNA BRENNAN SUPERFACIALST MASKS FOR BAD SKIN DAYS



As the title suggests, I've been reaching for Una Brennan's Superfacialist masks quite a lot recently given the change in weather and my temperamental hormones. Face masks are one thing in my skincare routine that I tend to get a little lazy with. Some say you should apply a mask once or twice a week to get rid of all the grease and grime off your face, all the while hydrating your skin and restoring its balance. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered two drugstore masks which could do all of the above, in a fraction of a price compared to a lot of the high-end face masks out there on the shelves.

BEAUTY BOOKINGS WITH VANIDAY | PASTELS SALON


 I was recently approached by the wonderful people from the Vaniday app service and I immediately  jumped on board with intrigue when hearing about their new beauty app. Now, we all know how much of a pain it is to book appointments or finding the right salon which you can trust and become a faithful customer of. I've had my fair share of awkward moments and disastrous experiences at salons because either they don't know how to provide the quality treatment that every client looks for or my impressions have been poor given the state of service or price. Hence, I'm always on the look out for new salons with the best reviews in lifestyle magazines or hearing about it from my girlfriends. But often is the case where no matter how much a place is boasted for in the first place, it all boils down to your own experience and judgement.
