Liquid Lipsticks have taken the makeup world by storm and of course lipsticks are my favourite makeup item so I had to get my hands on a few. For the next 3 days I will speak about the ones that I own so that if you were looking to try any you can at least get a review on this blog.
I am starting off with the Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipstick which I hauled here.
I wanted 2 other colours but they were sold out so this is the one I got my hands on.

Nail polishes are so fun and you can change them as often as you want. I am guilty of buying a lot of nail polishes but not using them so today I wanted to share my Go To nail polishes; these are the natural/nude types. I work in an office so I can only do so much with my polishes however personally I love the staple nudes; they look so chic to me.
Ok so first up is my Nails Inc nail polish in 'Porchester Square'; this is one of the best ever; it's a grey toned nude and suits every skin tone; I wore this when I had acrylics during my time in Paris.
The OPI in 'Tickle My Francey' is the perfect nude; it is a pinky nude but it looks so gorgeous and literally goes with every outfit choice. Back to the greys with my Dior varnish in 707 'Gris Montaigne' which is a muted grey; this is a bit darker but oh it's such a beautiful grey.
And last but not least is this beautiful Rimmel nail polih that I found in Poundland (yes it was just a £1!); it is 230 'Hot Cocoa' and it's a mauve type of colour and looks amazing on all skin tones, it glistens espescially on darker skin tones.
I love putting Nail polishes on because not only is it fun but it takes your mind off other things; it's a bit of a mini pamper session. You can search any of these on Amazon; I always go to Amazon for good prices.
What are your go to nail polishes?
Hey loves; happy Humpday! Can't wait for the end of the week so I can rest! I visited Lush a few weeks ago and I wanted to share my little haul with you.
I repurchased the Jasmine and Henna Fluff - Ease treatment; I'll be doing a review on it soon; it's a treatment for hair and it's a bit of a treat for me at least once a month.
I also got the Mask of Magnaminty which I already reviewed here
I also picked up the Bubblegum Lip Scrub which I had heard a lot about and I must say it keeps these lips luscious! One of my friends also kindly gifted me the Sympathy for the Skin lotion cos she know how much I love Lush.
The little tin was just a Charity pot hand and body lotion that I decided to grab to put it in my bag. It was a £1 for charity so I thought why not.
L-R Jasmine and Henna Fluff - Ease treatment, the Mask of Magnaminty and the Bubblegum Lip Scrub
Love the feel, the colours and the textures of all Lush products!
What Lush products are your fave? I need some more Lush in my life.
How's your week going so far?

Wishing you a yummy night and sorry I haven't blogged in so long, I went away for Vals weekend and there was no wifi where I was so I was unable to upload and then I had food poisoning when I got back, but it's back to regular programming now.
Hope everyone had a lovely Valentines weekend!
Lots of love,

Hello loves; happy Face Mask Mondays! Today, I am talking about the Ole Henriksen Blue/black berry enzyme mask. Now if you read this post, then you know I love Ole Henriksen. As you can see this is a gel like feel to it. And if you take a whiff to it you can smell the lavender scent which isn't too overpowering I quite like it.
So this mask feels really good on the skin and it repairs and renews the skin. The lavender quenches dry skin and reduces inflammation; lavender is very soothing so if your skin is irritated this is your best bet. It also contains a blend of papaya enzymes and blue/black berry extracts which give the skin a gentle exfoliation.
Buy it here
The aloe juice is an antibacterial and reduces the inflammation that is caused by acne; so this mask is good for acne prone skin as well. This mask can be used up to 3 times a week AND it can also be under the eyes which shows how good it is for sensitive skin as the skin under the eyes is very sensitive. The aloe and the lavender can also cool under the eyes.
So in conclusion if you want to do a gentle mask during the week then you need to try it.
Have you tried this face mask before? Or a gel face mask?
Let me know down below.
Have a lovely week.

Happy Sunday everyone; hope you're all doing good and getting ready for the week ahead; just wanted to start the week off with some sort of encouragement that I gained from church today.
I realised that a lot of us go through so much each day; you don't know what everyone is going through but trust and believe that everyone you meet is fighting a battle.
And sometimes we look at other people and they seem to be sailing through life and then discontentment enters your life and you wanna be just like them and as they say 'Comparison is the thief of Joy'.
But I am here to let you all know that we go through stages in life and God prepares us for our blessings and sometimes although the blessings might be delayed; it's not denied.
Keep working hard and praising God and believing that he will come through for us and as his word says in Jer 29vs11 he wants the best for us and therefore that is what we are going to get.
Wishing you all a blessed week and make sure you catch up with all last weeks posts.
I am still bloggong everyday in February!

Happy Saturday loves; hope you are having fun on this grand saturday. Saturdays are one of my favourite days because I can rest, pamper myself and catch up on my shows and youtube videos.
So I thougght why not speak about 5 of my top youtubers; so these are people that I get really excited every time I see a video from them and I decided not too include any ultra super popular yotubers like Jaclyn Hill, Nicole Guerrero, BeautyByJJ, Carlibel, Partricia Bright and Shirley and many more (whom I love) but people that you might not have heard of. So here goes. In no particular order.
1. The first is actually a couple (Jamie & Nikki); if you don't know about this stunning husband and wife then you should get to know. They live in Australia and they got married recently. They do a lot of vlogging and sharing a piece of their lives with us. Give them a go and you will love them.
2. MouldyFruit is the second channel am obsessed with; the owner of the vlog is called and she has a blog too which is just as amazing as her channel; she talks about all things beauty and she loves to travel too which is something I truly love too so make sure you check her out.
3. Next up is this beauty, Sincerely Oghosa, she is truly talented in her craft; she does poetry, art and skits. And above all that she talks beauty, fashion and hair and beauty! I also love her personality which is very contagious. Follow her and you will thank me.
4. Now onto Laila; owner of Fusion of Cultures; she is just bloody amazing and her hair is just gorgeous. I have learnt so much about her and life from her. She also has a section on her vlog about Nubian Thoughts which is great. Bonus: Another hair channel I love is GlamTwinz334, I don't want to go on about it too much but check it out.
5. Last but not least is Vicky Logan, one video and you will be hooked; she is very fun and talks about everything from beauty, to fashion to life and marrying young. Have a little peak.
I hope you take a minute to check these channels out and let me know what you think.
Have a lovely night.

Hi my loves; hope your week is going good. TGIF right? I am so excited for the weekend as the past week has been very hectic espescially with the daily blogging plus a full time job; I salute all the daily bloggers out there; it's no joke.
So today I wanted to have a bit of a personal post so that you can get to know me a little bit more so I am doing the 20 random facts about me; but just 10 facts today as I tend to babble on.
So let's get right into it!

Hello ladies; if you're like me and you LOVE makeup and fashion then you know you're always searching high and low for your new 'FIX'! I have been wanting to try out Giorgio Armani makeup for the longest time and this lip colour looks great as I love my nude lip colours.
I have heard so much about the Nars light reflecting pressed powder and I will like to have it in my collection. Charlotte Tillbury has taken the world by storm and all the packaging is just so beautiful; I have a lipstick from them that I need to review.
I have also wanted to own the Tom Ford black orchid perfume; it's so intense and just very unique so I need to actually just get it.
Onto footwear, I have really eyeing up some designer brands; Loubs, Zanottis and Stuart Weitzman; I need those knee high boots in my life. Last but not least summer is coming up so new sunglasses need to be on deck and you can never go wrong with Raybans.
What are you lusting for at the moment? Let us start a convo down below.
