Worth the Hype? NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer.

My thoughts on one of the most hyped concealers of the season...

It's no secret that NARS have some great base products on the market. Since their Radiant Creamy Concealer hit the shelves, we all went mad, and since then every new release has been a similar story. Pot concealers are very hit and miss. Some can be excellent coverage, but super drying, and others can be too thick and cakey to use under the eyes. So, these new NARS soft matte concealers? How do they compare?...

Finishing University; My Thoughts and Plans for the Future.

Work hard. Play harder.

I honestly can't believe my three years of University are nearly up. In less than two weeks I'll be handing over my dissertation and calling it a day. Please world, be nice to me. I've learnt a lot over the three years, not only about myself as a person, but what I want to achieve and the direction I want to take myself in later life. I still see myself as 16, barely out of high school, but I'm now 20 and starting my life for real, so it's time to put on my big girl pants and do this. This post is a little insight into my time at University and some thoughts I have going on.

Four Step Pamper Routine.

Always remember to take time for yourself.

I love to pamper myself, I mean, who doesn't. If I have an evening to myself I'll light some candles, throw on some music and get really get into the pamper groove. It's so important to set a couple of hours aside every now and then to wind down and treat yourself to some well deserved me time. There's always four things I love to focus on when I pamper myself and those are, bath, body, face and hair, all of which I'll be talking about today. Every so often I'll throw a couple of other bits into the mix, but this is a great base routine to get started with.

My Favourite Brands to Save, Spend and Splurge on.

I love to discover new beauty brands from all ranges of the price spectrum. Sometimes I feel that the price of an item can falsely represent the quality, especially with cheaper brands. I want to do more drugstore style posts to show that you really can get great products on a budget, but today I wanted to share with you the brands I love to use across the board, no matter the price, these brands and products never let me down. There are so many other brands out there I love, and ones I talk about all the time, but I'm sure the ones I'm mentioning today will be no surprise to you all. If there's any products from these brands which you love and use all the time please let me know, I'd love to try more.

How to Become a Calm Traveller.

I feel very lucky and privileged to say that I've done my fair share of travelling over the 20 years of my existence. Discovering new places and seeing what the world has to offer is a gift that I feel everyone should experience. Put me on a 5 hour flight, and I'm fine, anything long haul however, I struggle. I wouldn't say I get anxious over whether or not we're going to make it without plummeting to the ground... I get more anxious over whether or not my stomach can handle being in the air for 7+ hours - I have puked multiple times on a flight hence the worry...

This has definitely affected me negatively and I get extremely worked up when it comes to hopping on a plane, even beforehand in the airport I can feel my stomach turn. I never thought travel sickness would really effect me and when I was younger being sick on a flight never worried me, as not much does when you're 6, but now I'm older it's something which is impacting me more and more.

If you're in the same boat as me, here are a few tips I have which help get me in the right frame of mind and make the flight a lot easier and not a deterrent for allowing you to see the world.

My Spring Base.

I've been all about cream products lately, and I think Spring is the perfect season to stow away all the powders, and have a little play around with dewy skin. That's not to say you can't achieve glowing skin with powders, you can, but for me I love the way cream formulas look and blend on the skin. My base so far in Spring has been, light, fresh, minimal and dewy, and here's what I use to achieve that.

NEW IN: Origins Flower Fusion Sheet Masks.

When I first saw that Origins were realising sheet masks I could not wait to try them. For years Origins has been one of my top skincare brands and one I always go back to. Their masks are fab, they have some great options for all skin concerns, so it's safe to say I had high hopes for these bad boys!

Off The Shoulder Staples And What To Pair Them With.

The off the shoulder trend is not going anywhere this Spring and Summer - yay! - it's in full force and I'm always seeing new patterns and colours I want to add to my wardrobe. I think off the shoulder pieces are so flattering and the little shoulder reveal is very sexy, without showing too much skin. I thought it would be a nice idea to share some staple off the shoulder tops I have in my wardrobe and how I like to style them. This is just a bit of inspo for you guys, I'm not telling you to dress like this, you do you!

5 For Spring.

I adore spring, it's definitely my favourite season, I love it when the flowers bloom and all the shops start to bring in beautiful colours and textures for spring and summer. It's a happy season, and can I mention it's now light until about 7:30/8pm!!! Hooray! I wanted to share with you a few bits I've rotated into my Spring beauty routines, I have a couple of skincare and some makeup bits. I'm a huge fan of fresh, brightened skin, so these help to achieve that.
