Practical AND Pretty : Pink Parcel* + 20% OFF YOUR FIRST BOX


I friggin' love how many subscription boxes there are these days, yeno. Nothing quite beats that feeling of opening up a box full of little surprises; curated with you in mind. So naturally, I try and get me mitts on as many sub boxes as I can, hahahaha. 

Today's post features Pink Parcel* - a monthly subscription service designed to help those of us who have periods to feel our best; even around that time of the month. They're also the big sister of Betty Box - which you might remember me reviewing here. The packaging is pretty & splits into different section - essentials for now, for night and for later. And the products, brands & treats you'll find included each month have really, really blown me away. And you can get 20% off your first box with code PP20.

Previse Are Right Nice*


I've been spoilt with skincare this year. My poor, knackered fossil of a body doesn't quite know what's hit it... what with all the lux products it's been sampling in 2018. It was used to a blob of baby oil, ten buckets of fake tan & a few thousand facewipes - then bam! Along came blogging, making more of an effort & the ageing process. Game changedAnd from the look of horror, disgust and genuine terror I've had when I've mentioned to people about my love for baby wipes when it comes to removing me makeup, I reckon this revelation will be music to a lot of people's ears.

A new, natural brand I've been enjoying recently when it comes to hydrating my scaly fossil skin; as part of the 2018 Skin Makeover is Previse. They're not a company I'd tried before, but their products have impressed me & defo helped hydrate and cool my parched skin; post Zante. Let's chat more about them, frens.

This Palette Is Proper SICK, Yeno. I'd Even Go As Far As To Say You Need It.


Because I'm a terrible adult, spendaholic & ridiculously easily influenced; I ended up making yet another Revolution Makeup order recently. Purely cos I'd seen a few pics of the new Soph palette knocking about the 'Gram and wanted that aesthetic on & around my face. 

So here she is. She costs just £10, contains 18 triumphant shades and rocks up in the rose gold case of dreams. Her official name [other than babein' palette bae who completes my tragic existance] is the Revolution X Soph Extra Spice palette - and as you may have guessed from this post's title; she's 100% worth picking up

Discount At Debenhams?! YAAAAS | Groupon*


There is pretty much no feeling that beats long romantic walks down the makeup aisle. Well, I guess the one to the fridge comes pretty close in terms of this utter euphoric bliss but yeno. I've treated myself to so many bits of beauty recently [fragrance, another 300 eyeshadow palettes, skincare] that I think my stack of credit cards have pretty much imploded. But the call of the makeup counter is too strong

It's A Hairy Situation*


I love having long hair. I don't know why, but cutting it short makes me feel about as sexy as a big toe in a pair of Crocs. I guess I like the idea of swishing my hair about like I'm in a sexy music video, with Nicki Minaj twerking in the background. There are a lot of styles you can achieve with long locks. It can be sexy, flirty, feminine. And it can also be a total bugger. Especially when it won't be tamed, gets tangled, goes weirdly flat on one side or looks limp AF; despite fuelling it with all the products in the country.

I know we can all relate to the idea of having a bad hair day. That's why dry shampoo, ponytails, 'messy' buns and hats are a gal's best friend. But what if your bad hair days just don't seem to go away? Don't worry, frens, let's dive into the heart of this hairy situation and sort it out; with theses helpful tips from the professionals.

It’s finally Summer, my fav thing in the whole world... and with that & the Summer holidays, comes a longggg list of social meetups & event invites.

If you're the one tasked with organised said Summer event, you'll be well aware by now that planning & prep is key... and if you're planning a whooooole friggin' wedding then... well, hun, you'll most likely need to start planning a couple of years before the big day.

Casual Dating Can Be Fun, Hun*


Dating. Getting to know someone new. Casually dating. Pyar steamy hook ups / sex dating. Whatever your status or preference, there's a lot of fun to be had on the modern dating scene. And with the endless opportunities that online dating & dating apps bring to the table, the world is pretty much ya oyster. 

Modern tech has made it way easier to locate a potential love interest - even on the go, on ya phone or laptop... and so much smoother than trying to talk to someone in a club & decipher whether they're fit or sh*t; in a venue filled with strobe lights & smoke machines [blasting DJ Sammy - Heaven. Tuuuuune.] Whether you're in it for the long-haul [or in it for a one-night-only, no strings dating kinda thing] meeting someone new who you proper fancy or get on well with is a pretty unbeatable experience.

It's About TIME You Heard About This Stuff... Cos It's The BOMB*


My hair is like an angry birds' nest, sent from the fiery pits of hell. You'd think I was being overdramatic there, but I rly don't brush it that often, so that statement is actually surprisingly accurate. I've got a really lovely product to show you today; which actually - by some miracle - does really seem to agree with and salvage the state of me mop. This Time Bomb Mass Appeal Hair Thickening Supplement*, which is a leave-in treatment, was a lovely surprise bit of #Bloggermail to come home to recently - and a surprise new fave in my life, too.

I thought my radar was pretty switched on when it came to my knowledge of beauty stockists & places where my money can totes burn a hole in my pocket [not that I really have any money... or many garments with pockets.

The Product Of This [Hot] Week : From Jurlique*


SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE! Yaaaaaaaaas! Even I, the most miserable old hag in the North West, have smiled at least 6 times since its triumphant arrival... & it's even got to the point  now where I actually want to go outside and interact with other humans; which is pretty much unprecedented. Wot is dis?! Who am I pls.

There's one product I've found myself reaching for more than ever since the climate got so spicy & hot - and that's my lil bottle of Jurlique's Rosewater Balancing Mist [which the very sexy Friday Faye and Francisca May gave me last year, when I was going through a leg-falling-off crisis.] It smells like Turkish Delight, leaves your skin feeling beautiful and cools you down like nothing else on this earth. Without smearing your makeup off. The legit dream.

With that in mind: picture this. My [rancid] face when a huge bottle of this angelic stuff was sent to me recently - the intense, deluxe version at that. DECEASED. Just look at that bottle and packaging. I just can't. Jurlique have smashed it out of the park with this deluxe, limited edition mist; it's every Insta goal I think I've ever had. And I'm feeling pretty flipping lucky right now.

Weddings, Dress Dreaming &, Of Course, THE HEN DO*


Although I feel I should very firmly state that if current, sort-of bae asked me to marry him I'd say no, I think every girl sorta dreams of their wedding day. The makeup, the bridesmaids, the dress... having all your closest & bestest friends around you. And for me, the biggest part = defo the hen do. Though I doubt I will ever be trusted to plan anyone's hen, ever [I nearly ended up booking a friggin' gang bang last time I tried to do a nice thing and plan some bridey festivities] as we'd probably end up stranded in Ibiza surrounded by cheese & empty Jager bottles.
