BENEFIT | GIMME BROW.

'iya loves,




Holy Grail Alert! Right off the bat yes this product is that good. Can I just say I purchased this back in February/March and I've not looked back. I used to always use the ELF clear brow gel, and that was always my go to. If you've been following me for a while you'll remember me raving and using that. Now in most tutorials it's this little baby that I reach for. Unless I'm switching it up, but no joke, everyday I reach for this and if for some reason I don't my brows feel naked. Now this isn't just a clear brow gel. It's a tinted brow gel. The good thing about this is you can use it over the top of a brow pencil/brow wax/powder or you can use it by itself. If you miss any spots then this gel will fill in those spots. Using this baby by itself gives a super natural look to the brows when you're having one of them no make up make up kinda days. This product has little fibres in the gel so it actually gives the appearance of thicker and fuller brows which why I love this so much. My brows aren't by no means sparse but they do sometimes need help to look a tad more natural if I'm in a rush and overdone the pencil/powder. I'm sure you ladies get me on that one. This stays in place all day, my brows look good all day! They go no where! I absolutely love this stuff and I will be repurchasing. I know it's a bit on the pricey side for a brow gel but it's worth it especially for any ladies with sparse brows. This really gives the appearance of hairs, so makes your brows look so much more natural. The brush itself is much smaller than any brush I've used with a brow gel before. The good thing about this is it allows you to really define your brows especially if you're just using this product on it's own. If you feel like you need this in your life, because I know I'm an enabler myself then you can find this beautiful product here.

Love,

LUSH | OATIFIX.

'iya loves,



Now I appreciate this face mask probably doesn't look too appetising but honestly ladies it's amazeballs. If you have dry skin this is a face mask for you! Got sensitive skin?! Don't worry this caters for that too! I have super sensitive skin and my skin gets on just fine with this! Now the idea of this face mask is that it's supposed to cool and nourish from the bananas, vanilla and oats. Illpe butter to treat the redness, ground almonds to polish and kaolin to cleanse the skin. Does it do all those? Well it does a pretty good job. I leave this on for roughly 10-15 minutes, sometimes I completely lose track of time and it's on for longer but hey ho! My skin always feels super soft, clean and just a lot healthier. I suffer with mostly dryer skin especially now we're going into the colder months. This is one that I say any girl with dry skin that has not tried this from LUSH needs to give a go. It is quite an odd texture to get used to but it's some good stuff for you face. Find it here.

Love,

I got them from Primark.. not too sure if they still do them but I picked up a spare pair last time I was in there haha! Video wise..

IF ONLY.

'iya loves,

I'm a massive SATC (sex and the city) fan. I love it, I can watch the episodes over and over without getting bored. Carrie just speaks so much sense haha! I was stumbling across some SATC quotes last night and one was quite appropriate for my life right now. You know when a phrase/saying just fits your life at that specific time. It was one of those moments.. I wanted to blog about it last night but honestly my eyes were so sore and I'd have had to stick matchsticks in my eyes to keep them open. I feel like that's happening again tonight.. done my skincare routine and my body's like girl get to bed.. I'm having a late one.. got lots to do yet my eyes are like.. we're going to make you sleep. The struggle is real.


How true is this quote honestly ladies?! There's no telling that in every girls life, hideous decisions and mistakes are made.. if only was something to erase them it would make life so much easier. I guess though, as the saying goes.. you learn from your mistakes. At least that's what they say - doesn't normally work like that! I can count multiple times I've made bad decisions over and over and over. But who's with me on this?! It's like our head knows it's probably going to be a bad idea.. however I feel like because we know it's a bad idea we do it anyway. 

I'd like to think that all bad memories/mistakes shape who you are.. not 100% sure how accurate that is! Teenage years I feel are a difficult time for a girl especially.. trying to figure out who you are, what you want, what you want to do etc. Trust me once you venture into your twenties it gets no easier! The reason why I wanted to write this last night was because it really was one of them days I just wish I hadn't of got up. It was a bad day from start to finish. You know when you wake up and feel like you're gonna have a melt down straight away? That's what yesterday was like. I had one of the worst headaches I've had for a long time.. literally threw my hair up on top of my head dragged my sorry ass out of bed, and went to the joyful place of Asda, for a food shop. Can we just talk about how I have no patience for that place.. like really they're moving and working on the shop whilst it's still open. So the frozen stuff is currently in two areas.. workmen area I swear there's a law against that haha! What really gets me going though is people pushing a trolley, not looking where they're going then just randomly stop. They don't even acknowledge that they've stopped, and just stand there. Or better yet have a conversation with somebody and block the way completely. Yesterday, I was browsing at the candles, they've got the autumn/winter ones in now ladies.. smell so good.. apple and cinnamon yes! Anyway, trying to get down the rest of the isle, there's this little old lady bless her doing a 360 turn with the trolley not knowing what she's doing or where she's going. Bare in mind head is pounding and feeling quite sick I had no patience.. Do you have them days where everything and everyone infuriates you?!

I got to the evening and was just like nope, can't handle this and pretty much had a melt down! The worst is when you've done your make up and like nope girl I'm not ruining this now I'll ruin it later! I was going to dig into a tub of Ben & Jerrys and drown my sorrows. Instead I made the most heavenly bath.. half a bar of creamy candy, little bit of the comforter and snow fairy. It was heaven. I loved it. My eyes we're so sore though, and they feel really sore tonight not too sure what's happening there! If you ladies like candy scents then try that concoction it's heavenly. 

I plan to spend the rest of my evening catching up on some Geordie Shore! It's one of my guilty pleasures! Anyone else love a bit of Geordie Shore?!

Love,

IOW: DAY EIGHT!

'iya loves,

Day eight this was our very last day and the day we came home! My dad decided to treat us all to a water lights show.. honestly guys it was amazing.. basically what it is, moving water using lights to different songs..that's like the worst explanation either but you get me? I explained it in my vlog/may faves! I didn't get any footage due to being able to film anything but if you guys ever get the chance to go to it go do it honestly it's amazeballs. After that we then headed back to the ferry to come home. I got some pics which I'll share with you guys. It was a great week and honestly if you've not been to the Isle of Wight then go! 



























I hope you guys enjoyed this series, I enjoyed reliving my holiday memories through photo's! I've got some other vlog type style posts planned as well for a couple of days out we've had all together. 

Love,

THE BODY SHOP: SATSUMA.

'iya loves,


Oh my gosh.. this scent first off is amazeballs. Have you guys tried the Satsuma line from The Body Shop?! I'm currently half way down this bottle.. and I will be instantly replacing it! These are also really nice in the bath, they make lots of bubbles without actually having to use too much. The scent is quite strong so do be warned if that's not something you like. They lather up really nicely as well. These are £4 and this is one of my fav's that I've tried from The Body Shop. I'm like an addict when it comes to shower gels.. if I smell something nice that's it I instantly need it. Have you tried it?! Find it here.

OOTD: GREEN FLORAL.

'iya loves,


Pencil Skirt: Matalan
Cami: Matalan
Cardi: Primark

Ladies can we just take a moment to just appreciate how comfortable the jersey pencil skirts actually are. Now they come from Matalan and are £10 but they are so comfortable, they wash really well and you can wear them with so many things. The cami that I've got pairs beautifully with this green pencil skirt. I'm still on the floral hype you guys know this. I picked this cami up whilst on holiday back in May. I thought it was too nice not to pick it up! Then the simple cardi came from primark for £7 which you can just never have enough basic cardi's. 

Love,
