Spring Favourites!

Spring has well and truly sprung and i thought i would do a little round up on my blog of some of my current favourites! I have a nice mix of beauty, fashion & lifestyle bits – hope you enjoy!

First up for beauty – i have been obsessing over some of the new Too Faced releases. In general Too Faced is one of my all time favourite makeup brands, not only are the products really high quality the packaging is AMAZING! I have particularly been loving the new Sweethearts Blush in ‘Sparkling Bellini’ and the Sweetheart bronzer in ‘Sweet Tea’. Not only is the heart shaped packaging to die for the colours of both products are SO beautiful. The bronzer is such a gorgeous golden glow and the blush has just the right about of shimmer. IN LOVE.tf

Next up in beauty i have the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. I just want to start by saying… WHERE HAVE I BEEN?! This mascara has been so hyped about for the last few months yet i only just tried it out last week! Obviously as i’m including it in this favourites it was an instant love. Definitely my new favourite mascara and from the drugstore too! Winning! Ive been looking for a mascara for some time now that gives me quite a dramatic look without my lashes looking too clumpy, and this does just that! I don’t tend to wear heavy eye makeup so a good mascara to make me look a bit more awake is an absolute must for me. I have definitely found my new go too!


I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of new straighteners from the GHD Azores collection, the collection screams holiday vibes and it was love at first sight! I got mine in the pearlescent green colour and they are absolutely dreamy. Of course as you would expect from GHD the straighteners themselves are second to none. They glide through my mane of hair so easily which makes doing my hair in a morning a pleasure not a chore for once! These beauties are also available in blue and pink. I do believe they’re limited edition so get them while you can!

ghdMoving on to Fashion faves. This time of year its all about the trainers for me. I love a good pair of heels don’t get me wrong, but nothing beats the comfy feeling of your favourite converse – and these all White Leather Hi top All Stars are my new absolute faves! I got them from  which is an awesome website for all of your shoe buying needs! They stock so many of my favourite brands, i was so impressed when i had a browse. Though i was spoilt for choice i ended up going for these converse and i am so happy with them. Being all leather they are so much easier to keep clean (especially with them being pure white!), and they are also water proof which is fab because here in the UK the chances of rain are always on the high side haha! I feel like i can pair these with literally any outfit for a cute, casual look. Definitely a staple in my wardrobe this Spring.converse

As for random favourites – i am completely obsessed with smoothies at the moment! As the weather gets warmer it definitely inspires me to eat a little healthier and i just find smoothies such a yummy treat whilst still being good for you! I find myself browsing on Pinterest for hours searching new recipes – ultimate form of procrastination! I actually found an amazing recipe for a banana smoothie on Pinterest which tastes like a chocolate milkshake but is packed with protein and super good for you! I made a few tweaks to the recipe and i feel like i now have it perfect so stay tuned on the blog in the next week as i will definitely be sharing that with you all 😉

I hope you enjoyed my ramblings about all the things i’m currently loving! Let me know if you’d like me to do this kind of thing again! I might even make this a weekly thing, i love making videos on my channel but one thing that does i wish is that i could share more with you as i don’t get to tell you guys about all the things I’m loving every single week, sometimes my weeks videos just don’t allow for it. So maybe if i start doing a weekly love list on here i will be able to share lots more of the things i’m loving with you! What do you think? It feels absolutely awesome to be back blogging.

Let me know in the comments what you’re loving this Spring?

    Sparkling Bellini is so stunning and I really have to try the maybelline mascara, I’ve heard that it’s the most amazing drugstore mascara and am needing to try some more of them! Have to say I’ve been loving pastel coloured nailpolishes, they are a must! xx
