Is GlamGlow worth your money? Trying out the £40 ThirstyMud mask + honest thoughts!

Hello, loves! I am super excited for today's post, as we will be talking about something that I've been wanting to try for years! I've always heard such amazing things about GlamGlow (although I've also heard that it's completely overpriced), and I've always wanted to get my hands on it to see what all the fuss is really about. Now, I am not the sort of person that likes to spend a lot of money on skincare - my entire skincare collection is probably worth less than the cost of just one GlamGlow mask. However, I also believe that good skincare is worth investing in, especially considering that my skin has been in a very sorry state lately. I decided to finally take the plunge and buy the GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment mask (£40, Boots), which seemed to fit my skin's needs the most. Today, I'd like to share with you my honest experience with this face mask. Hope you enjoy!

I Love Cute Stationery! + Mini Collection

Hello, loves! Today, I want to talk to you about something a little different, and not beauty-related. If you have been visiting my blog for a while, you might know that I am completely obsessed with cute stationery! I absolutely love collecting notebooks, journals, stickers and colourful pens. I feel that in this day and age where everything is digitalized, the art of handwriting and printed media in general are becoming less and less relevant, and that makes me feel a little sad! I love keeping journals and just writing my thoughts down on paper - something about it feels very relaxing, and more meaningful than typing things up on a computer. Today, I would like to show you my collection (it isn't big, but it is very special!), and share a few of my favourite stationery finds. Hope you enjoy!

Budget Glow with the Sleek 'Cleopatra's Kiss' Highlighting Palette (Review + Swatches!)

Hello there, my loves! Today, I am very excited to talk to you about this beautiful Cleopatra's Kiss highlighting palette by Sleek MakeUP (£9.99, Boots). If you have been visiting my blog for a while, you might know that I'm not typically into highlighters; mostly because my oily skin just doesn't agree with them. Any highlight on my face usually blends with the natural shine of my skin, which isn't really a good look! Having said that, I still enjoy a little highlight with a good matte foundation from time to time (Estee Lauder's Double Wear always does the job!), and lately I have been exploring some budget-friendly options to see if I can find any hidden gems. Cleopatra's Kiss caught my eye right away - the beautiful packaging, the shades and even the exotic name make for a very promising palette! Hope you enjoy!

A Lazy Girl's Guide To A Great Evening In

Hello, loves! Today, I'd like to talk to you about something a little different, and not really beauty-related. A lot of you have said that you enjoy my chatty lifestyle posts (thank you!), and I'd definitely like to start featuring them more often on my blog. Today, I'd like to talk to you a little bit about the importance of taking time out for yourself, as well as share a few of my favourite tips for creating that perfect, relaxing evening in. I'd also like to thank today's sponsor, Panasonic, for giving me the inspiration for this post. Catching up on your favourite TV show is an essential part of a great evening in, and watching it on one of their beautiful Panasonic 4K TVs will make the experience even better! Panasonic offer a wide range of 4K TVs for any budget (I actually have one at home myself), and I'd wholeheartedly recommend that check them out, lovelies. Hope you enjoy today's post!

Hello, my loves! Today, I am very excited to be bringing you a brand new unboxing and first impressions post. We will be talking about the gorgeous Viva La Juicy Rosé by Juicy Couture (£36 for 30ml, FeelUnique).

I had no idea what to expect from this perfume, but I was completely drawn to the gorgeous, girly bottle design. Today, I will be sharing with you some of my initial thoughts on this scent. Hope you enjoy!

The Algarve Diaries! Ocean, Beaches And Dolphin Watching!

Hello there, my loves! Today, I am incredibly excited to finally talk to you about our anniversary trip to Portugal. Me and my better-half went there at the end of May to celebrate our eight years together, and it was honestly the most amazing trip we've ever had! Do you know how sometimes when you go on holiday, you enjoy your time but at the end of the day, you are somewhat happy to return home? Well, Portugal was the first place we ever went to that genuinely left me thinking 'I could live here!', and just being there made me feel so happy. We stayed in a small town called Alvor, located on the beautiful coast of the Algarve. Today, I am excited to tell you a little bit more about our trip, and share some photos - hope you enjoy!

A Fragrance Gift Guide For Men!

Hello, my loves! It feels great to be back in the blogging world. We had a wonderful time in Portugal - it is such a beautiful, welcoming country, and I will be sure to tell you all about it in a separate post! For now, I am struggling with the post-holiday blues, but I do feel excited about being able to post more regularly again. Today, I would like to talk to you a little bit about men's fragrances. We've covered quite a few different perfume recommendations here on Shoes and Glitter, but I have only ever focused on feminine scents. Today, I'd like to share with you some of my favourite masculine fragrances, which might be useful especially if you're planning to purchase a scented gift for the upcoming Father's Day! I would also like to thank today's sponsor, L'Occitane, who gave me the inspiration for this post. L'Occitane have mastered the craft of capturing natural scents not only in perfumes, but also everyday products like this lovely shaving cream, enriched with the cade essential oil. I'd wholeheartedly recommend that you check them out, loves! Hope you enjoy today's post!
