The Cutest Unboxing Ever With The Kawaii Box + Giveaway!

Hello there, jelly beans! Today, I am excited to be bringing you a very special unboxing. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you might know that I don't typically sign up for subscription boxes (at least those ones that include beauty products), as I've had far too many hit-and-miss experiences in the past. However, when I came across the Kawaii Box, I simply could not resist and had to try it out. Funnily enough, as I was browsing their website, my boyfriend who was sitting next to me said 'Wow, you need to get this. This box is totally you!'. Well, he wasn't wrong! I absolutely love all things cute and girly, and I have not seen a similar subscription box here in the UK. So today, I am teaming up with the Kawaii Box to bring you the cutest unboxing ever. There is also a little giveaway at the end of this post, so be sure to enter it if you'd like to get your hands on one of these beauties!

Anna Sui 'Fantasia' Perfume Review + Life Update!

Hello, my loves! I know that it's been a very long time since my last post, and I was actually considering writing a separate life update before jumping back into the usual content. However, there actually isn't all that much to be said, so I will add a short update at the end of this post instead. Today, I am back with a perfume review that I have been wanting to write for a while! Anna Sui recently launched a brand new fragrance, Fantasia (£28 for 30ml), and to be honest - the moment I laid my eyes on it, I just knew that I had to have it. I mean... Just look at this bottle! This has to be one of the most unique, gorgeous bottle designs that I have ever seen! I wasn't even remotely bothered with the actual fragrance or what it would smell like - I was out the door and at the local Fragrance Shop as soon as it launched. Today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on this perfume, so I hope you enjoy - and welcome back!

Forced Positivity In Blogging & Why It's Okay To Be Sad

Hello, my loves! Today's topic is going to be very different and a little difficult to talk about, but it's something that's been on my mind for a while. I am going to start off with a little confession - personally, I have always struggled with happiness. And I think that a lot of people do, actually. It's not that I'm always sad, but I definitely find it difficult to always think positively, and to achieve that level of unbreakable, carefree happiness that's often promoted on blogs and social media. Sometimes, I let things get to me too easily, and a lot in my life is far from perfect - but that's only natural. I honestly don't believe that it is possible, normal or healthy for anyone to be 'always happy'. Life happens, and we all have our own struggles, insecurities, and battles to fight. All of those things - good or bad - are what makes us human, and we should never deny them.

Makeup Haul + First Impressions! Urban Decay, NYX, Benefit And More

Hello, jelly beans! It's been a while since I got myself any new makeup (I'm committed to using up what I already have first, although all it takes is a 20% off Feelunique voucher to convince me otherwise!), so today I am very excited to be bringing you a little haul. It's a combination of popular drugstore and high-end goodies which had been on my wishlist for months, so I was very curious to find out whether they live up to the hype. I hope you enjoy this little shop and tell!

Testing Out A £200 Perfume... Is It Worth It?! 'Spring Flower' By Creed

Hello, lovelies! Today, I am very excited to finally review a fragrance that I've been wanting to talk about for a long time - Spring Flower by Creed. This perfume retails for £190 (!) on the Creed website, and it is easily the most expensive and luxurious scent that I have ever tried. Now, luckily, I did not have to spend nearly £200 on this fragrance - I love my perfumes, but I don't think I could ever do that! I actually found this little gem in my local TK Maxx for just £50, which is an amazing discount and one that I just could not walk away from. Today, I will be sharing with you my (brutally!) honest thoughts on this incredibly expensive scent. Hope you enjoy!

Bargain Finds - £15 Too Faced 'Love' Eyeshadow Palette + Swatches!

Hello, loves! Today, I am very excited to share with you a review of this gorgeous Love Collection eyeshadow palette by Too Faced. This palette typically retails at £40, but a local TK Maxx had quite a few of these for just £15, which is a pretty good bargain! I was immediately drawn to the lovely packaging and the warm tonality of this palette; plus, from my experience, you really can't go wrong with the Too Faced formulas. Today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on this little bargain find. Hope you enjoy!
