Recent Skincare Discoveries + Mini Reviews!

Hello, lovelies! Today, I wanted to share with you some of my latest skincare discoveries. It's quite rare for me to feature skincare reviews on my blog, mainly because I don't consider myself to be that knowledgeable in the subject. I love reading about skincare on other blogs, but when it comes to my own product choices, I kind of just go with whatever seems good (or has cute packaging!). Today, I thought I'd share with you some general thoughts on my recent skincare acquisitions. Hope you enjoy!

I Heart Spring Tag!

Hello there, my lovelies! Spring is just around the corner now, and I decided to celebrate it with a little spring-themed tag! This 'I Heart Spring' tag was originally created by Ingrid Nilsen on YouTube, and it includes all sorts of interesting beauty, fashion and lifestyle related questions. I have really enjoyed reading this tag on other blogs, and thought that it could be a fun way to welcome the upcoming season. Hope you enjoy!

Spring Perfume Recommendations 2017!

Hello there, my lovelies! Spring is just around the corner, and I honestly couldn't be happier! British winters aren't very exciting - the days are cold and gloomy, and we don't ever get any real snow (just a lot of rain). Spring is probably my favourite season - I think that there are just so many things to love about it! Longer days, more sunshine, blossoming flowers and fluffy ducklings...  Aside from finally ditching the heavy winter boots, one of the main things I look forward to the most is changing up my perfume wardrobe. Whilst winter is perfect for fragrances that are quite intense, bold and sweet; spring is all about floral, light and refreshing scents. Today, I'd like to share with you a few of my top picks for springs. Hope you enjoy!

Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Modern Renaissance' Detailed Review + Swatches!

Hello, jelly beans! Today, I am very excited to be bringing you another makeup review. If you have been visiting Shoes and Glitter for a while, you might know that eyeshadow palettes are my biggest weakness when it comes to makeup. I already have way more than I could ever need, but I simply cannot resist a pretty palette! Anastasia Beverly Hills' Modern Renaissance (£40, BeautyBay) has been incredibly popular in the blogosphere, and also on my radar ever since I found out about it. I was immediately drawn to the warm, rich tonality of this palette, inspired by the vibrant colours of the Renaissance - berry reds, pinks and rich taupes. Today, I am very excited to share with you my honest thoughts on this palette - hope you enjoy!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Rose Matter - Review + Swatches!

Hello there, my sweet muffins! It's been a little while since my last post, and I do apologise for being so quiet lately. I have some exciting new posts coming up for you soon, and I will be sure to catch up with all your lovely blogs this weekend! Today, I am bringing you a review of this gorgeous Velour liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star in the shade Rose Matter (£16.00, BeautyBay). Now, if you have been visiting my blog for a while, you might know about my troubled relationship with liquid lipsticks. I love how they look, but I tend to stay away from them as they are always so uncomfortable to wear. Even the most popular and renowned liquid lipsticks (for example, the ones by NYX) would end up drying my lips like there's no tomorrow! Still, I've heard amazing things about Jeffree's Velour range, so I decided to take the plunge and try one, hoping to finally find a perfect liquid lipstick that works for me. Hope you enjoy!

How To Be A Successful Blogger When You're Socially Anxious?

Hello there, my lovelies! Today's post is going to be a little different - I want to talk to you about something that I think is very important, but also difficult to open up about. In recent years, there has been a lot more open and honest talk about mental health, which I think is absolutely wonderful. We should not be afraid to talk about our mental issues; we shouldn't feel ashamed or like we're destined to fight our battles alone. Anxiety is something that affects many people - myself included - and it can be incredibly crippling. A lot of people online tell me that I always come across as open, friendly and bubbly. Honestly, if you were to meet me in person, you'd probably be surprised by how shy and awkward I can be! Even the most basic human interactions used to be a struggle for me, and to this day, I find it difficult to open up to others and make friends. Blogging is something that has definitely helped me with these struggles, which is what I'd like to talk to you about today.

From Best To Worst Of Affordable Perfumes! Lipsy Trio Perfume Set Review

Hello there, my sweet muffins! Today, I am very excited to talk to you about this lovely perfume set by Lipsy, which contains three of their signature scents - the original Lipsy, Glam and Love.

Today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on each one of these fragrances. Hope you enjoy!
