October favourites

October beauty favourites

I know I say this all the time but how an earth is it the end of October? October has been a relatively quiet month for me, especially with me still being ill for the first half of the month, but I am finally better and as you are reading this I am actually in Iceland(!!!). But, anyway it's time for October beauty favourites.

Smashbox Cover Shot Eye palette review

The Smashbox Cover Shot Eye palette in the shade Ablaze is an absolutely gorgeous eyeshadow palette that I picked up earlier in the year and is the perfect palette for Autumn. It is full of warm-toned shades that really compliment each other to create a variety of looks.

10 things I wish I knew before purchasing our first property

So, you may or may not know that this time last year me and the other half, Luke, were in the process of purchasing our first property together. Come tomorrow we have actually owned our little flat an entire year, how crazy is that, so today I wanted to share with you 10 things I wish I knew before we purchased our first property.

How to bake Halloween cupcakes

how to bake Halloween cupcakes

So, another different type of post for me but with Halloween coming up I really wanted to share something a little bit different, a recipe style post. It isn't the most exciting recipe in the world but they sure tasted amazing, so today's post is all about how to bake Halloween cupcakes.

My foundation collection

foundation collection

I love reading makeup collection posts and realised I've never really talked about all the bases in my collection, so that's what I'm going to do today. As you can see I've got quite a few in my collection at the moment... and there's still a couple more that I really want to try at the moment (oops). Anyway, here goes.

Love Me Beauty October review

Having re-started my Love Me Beauty subscription back in July I have completely failed to get my subscription box posts out in time, but this month I was adamant I would get round to sharing it. Over the last couple of months, I can't believe what has been on offer, I'm talking beauty products that cost £60 and even around £120 when the beauty box itself only costs £12.99 including postage! I missed out on the MD Perricone Face Finishing Moisturiser Tint last month as I forgot to check-out but I thought it was such an exciting product to see on offer.

Anyway, if you don't already know Love Me Beauty is a monthly beauty subscription box that works differently to others as you get to choose your products from a selection each month. I love choosing as I'm far more likely to use the products in the beauty box. If you do decide to join you can get an extra 30 credits on top of the standard 60 for your first box using the code KRIST2969081.

Introducing Boots Botanics

Boots Botanics

I have been wanting to write a post about the Boots Botanics products I was gifted for a while, but with all the ambassador programmes controversy I didn't know whether to publish it. However, as I genuinely do love Botanics products I have decided to go ahead and share with you my honest thoughts.

A New Look Autumn fashion haul try-on

New Look Autumn fashion haul

Okay, so this is a bit of a different post for me, other than a few outfit's of the day here and there I haven't shared much fashion-related content on here. However, I've picked up a couple of Autumn bits that are definitely going to be staples throughout Autumn, and even Winter, so today I thought I would share with you all a mini Autumn fashion haul try-on.

Favourite Autumn makeup picks

Favourite Autumn makeup picks

As the weather transitions into the colder Autumn and Winter months, the makeup I reach for transitions too. I tend to start creating bolder makeup looks and reaching for darker lips. That being said, today I thought I would share with you my current favourite Autumn makeup picks.

A look inside my makeup bag

Some people have an entire makeup look in their makeup bag, some people have a few items, I have way too many lip products and a few other items... So, today I thought I would share with you all a peak of what is currently inside my makeup bag.

Oak Barn, Budleigh, Devon

Back in August Luke and I headed to Exmouth in Devon to see some of Luke's family, and being in Devon, I had to go for some Devonshire scones. Last year Luke's Gran took us to the most amazing place for scones, the Oak Barn Coffee Lounge in Budleigh Salterton, so I had requested that we go back there for a visit during our stay and thought I would do a little blog post about it, as it really is a gem of a place that everyone needs to know about.

End of year goals

End of year goals

End of year goals are something that I have been debating writing about for a while, I like writing them at the end of year, but due to the lack of blogging last year this never happened. Since I changed jobs in January I have had the time to finally focus on my blog again and have been blogging a lot more seriously since the end of February, and I have a few goals I would love to achieve by the end of the year, blog-wise, and in general life. So, here goes.

A Bath and Body Works haul with myMallBox

Bath and Body Works haul with myMallBox

This is a sponsored post

Bath and Body Works is a brand that I have wanted to try for so long, but as they don't ship to the UK I hadn't had the chance to try them previously. This is where a forwarding company comes in and helps make this possible, myMallBox is the forwarding company I used for today's haul.
