Fillast High Perfection Lips Review and Giveaway!



Ahh, so we've all dreamt of having plumper lips. I've tried everything on the market, but as usual, nothing actually works. If I ever had cosmetic surgery, which I never would have, i'd love to get my lips a teeny weeny bit plumper, but unfortunately I would end up looking like a duck, because i've never really seen anyone with a nice lip-job. So, I was contacted by the people at Skin Med to ask if I wanted to give away 5 of their new product, Fillast Lips. So, what makes this different to other lipbalms? With a price tag of £36.00, surely there must be something good about it?...

The You Generation Presenter Audition - My Entry

Hey everyone, so I know that this isn't beauty related but I could really do with your support. I recently heard about Simon Cowell's new show, called The You Generation on YouTube. Obviously I can't sing, so I wont be entering the singing leg of the competition, but he recently launched a presenter search and I've auditioned (eeek!). The brief was very specific, and asked you to use the words disco and dinosaur somewhere in the video, just to make it fun. It would be absolutely incredible if you could support me by watching my video below and if you like it, even commenting on the video.

Get Whiter Teeth - Blanx White Shock Toothpaste With LED Accelerator Review


Hey lovelies, so yes, I have reviewed a toothpaste. I bet you’re thinking ‘whaaat?!’ but trust me, this is a good product well worth the review. I felt that I needed to tell you all about it’s magical powers. So everyone wants white teeth, unfortunately contstant professional polishes are unaffordable and whilst veneers are a dream of mine, could I really part with that much money for some fake teeth? No I hear you cry. I’m sure you’ve all tried everrrything on the market, now, I’m not a dentist at all, but, after having three years of braces when I was younger, I realized that the best way to get white teeth, is to just brush. Simple. However, when I was getting my braces, I was told to brush my teeth twice a day for 6 minutes each time. This is the whitest my teeth have ever been, they literally looked gleaming. Since getting rid of my braces, I have tried everything to maintain that whiteness (who has 12 minutes to stand and brush their teeth? People already complain about how long it takes me to get ready for bed!). But, do not worry, I have a solution, something which can accelerate that brushing process. Yep, I said it, a teeth whitener that ACTUALLY works, it actually whitens your teeth…

When in Paris, Part 2. Paris Vlog and Beauty Haul

Hello lovelies, so here is Paris part 2. I told you there was a lot. Firstly, I finally did a new YouTube video and we got some vlogging done in Paris woohoo. The start of the video is a haul discussing the numerous items that I picked up whilst in Paris and the second part of the video is a bit of an x-rated vlog, with me looking rather ugly and being rather energetic, lets just say. I really hope you enjoy it, and I promise you lots more YouTube videos from here. Do keep reading this post for some more photographs of my time blogging in Paris. This time last week, this is what I was doing...

Trinity Leeds Opening and Meeting Jamie Laing!

Trinity Leeds Opening

For as long as I can remember I’ve been walking through the city centre of Leeds and seeing signs for ‘Trinity 2013’, it seems like years ago that I heard about the plans for this shopping centre. I remember people saying that it was never going to open or that if it did, it wouldn't be for a long long time, but it seems to have suddenly just happened. Only a few weeks ago I was inside the building having construction tours, wearing my yellow high visibility jacket, building boots, glasses and gloves. But today, March 21st 2013, I was lucky enough to go to the press launch and see the opening day of something which will change Leeds forever, Trinity Leeds shopping and leisure complex…

A Girls Trip To Paris: Things To Do In Paris



'Paris is always a good idea'. When I tweeted to say 'ah someone come to Paris with me'. I really didn't expect it to ever happen. I was lucky enough to be treated to a trip for my 18th birthday to the city of lights and since then, i've always wanted to go back. Lucky me, almost exactly a year on, I got the chance to go back to this incredible city. The lovely Scarlett Dixon, aka Scarlett London also wanted to go, so it actually happened and together we trotted off to the beautiful city of Paris. I love going to cities, and we've decided that we should definitely do tours of all the big shopping cities of the world, that way, we can review them for you and tell you about any hidden gems, and by gosh, did we find some hidden gems in the beautiful city of Paris...

Outfit and Make up Of The Night - Contouring and Eye Shadow For Beginners


Hello lovelies, i'm really sorry that it's been a few days since I last blogged. I've been crazy busy packing for Paris (i'm going tomorrow eee!), doing all of my work for University and i'm just generally stupidly busy. BUT, the good news is, today I broke up from Uni for 4 weeks, so you've got me, for four whole weeks. Lucky you. So, if you follow me on instagram (emshelx) or on twitter, you'll have seen me posting lots of posey photos of myself this week, I promised that i'd write about how I did my make up on those photos, because I am very proud that I actually managed to apply eye shadow correctly AND managed to contour alla Kim Kardashian style. Enjoy...

Benefit World Famous Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette Review




Hey everyone, so today I decided I need to get back on form with my beauty reviews (hooray). I have so much stuff to review but Uni work is drowning me at the moment AND i'm going to Paris this weekend, typical girl, I haven't even got my Euros yet or even thought about what i'm going to wear. Oops. But, who cares because I'm a lucky owner of the World Famous Neutrals palette by Benefit. This is one of the prizes that I won for answering some questions at their bloggers event, and I am beyond impressed with this product (it's the new Urban Decay Naked Palette - but in box form). Do read on...

Benefit Fake Up Concealer Review and Benefit Blogger Event!



On Friday evening I was kindly invited to the launch of Benefit's new product 'Fake Up' concealer. As you can see above though, I came home with a lot more than just the concealer. The kind ladies at Benefit were being extra generous and decided to give us the concealers in 3 shades, plus, being the keen beauty blogger that I am, I won some more amazing prizes for answering some questions correctly about their products! I haven't actually used Benefit's products in a long time, or even been to a Benefit counter because I feel that when I was younger, I had every product and exhausted all of my wage at their counters, but Benefit have come back with a completely new product range since the last time that I looked, and wow... they don't half impress...

Mothers Day Gift Buying Guide


Hey lovelies, I decided to write a Mothers day gift guide as this year i've found mothers day has come around far too quick (a week today to be exact) and it is an important occasion because well, our Mum's made us. Even if you don't celebrate Mother's day, this could be applicable to Grandmas, I always get my Grandma a little something on Mothers day! But whoever you choose to celebrate the day with, gift buying for it is actually quite simple. I know that my Mum always says she would prefer to spend the day with me and have a hand made card than be lavished. But, I love to spoil her, because she doe so much for me and always has done. I'm very lucky to have a hard working Mum who's a Mum and Dad rolled into one, I am a Mummy's girl, so here is my gift guide to make buying a present for Mother's day that little bit easier...
