Rimmel London Super Gel Nails

Being a blogger certainly has it's little perks, one of these being that I somehow landed myself on Rimmel London's PR list, which is crazy and I am so forever thankful for. Every so often I receive a super pretty metallic jiffy bag through my letterbox with a new release of theirs, the latest being the new Super Gel* nail polish shades. 

There isn't a day that goes by where I don't wear nail polish and since I am a qualified beauty therapist trained in Gelish, I usually opt for gel polish over the standard polish you'd pick up on the high street. Although Gelish is lovely and it lasts a good two weeks, it takes longer to apply, it's not a lot of fun to remove and it's quite expensive to buy with a new colour costing around £20. When these new Super Gel shades landed on my doorstep I jumped right in to trying them, I removed my gel polish and decided to try each and every shade, its been a while since I've had such funky looking nails!

Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Bondi

Rose gold is so on trend right now and it's become one of my favourites, I am obsessed with anything that is rose gold and I am forever dreaming of a future home filled with white furniture and rose gold details. I've always been a silver over gold kinda' gal but when I discovered rose gold I just fell in love, the same way in which I fell in love with the brand new Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Bondi watch in the rose gold option. I've always thought their watches were so beautiful and have dreamt of owning one so I couldn't believe it when they got in touch wanting to collaborate with me! Todays post is a little different from my usual content but I am feeling super excited that I am featuring a little bit of fashion on my blog!

Daniel Wellington is a Swedish watch brand who offer several different stunning watches for men and women, all of which are very reasonably priced and will arrive beautifully packaged straight to your door. This new particular watch is perfect for me as its girly, made with rose gold and its dainty.

Essential Blog Props

Recently I've been trying to up my photography quality and I've become slightly obsessed with blog props, if you're a blogger and you love taking photographs you'll probably be well aware of the hype around blog props lately and how many people are using them to really enhance photographs. For me I now find myself using several different props in my photographs as I feel it really adds that little something extra to them and I feel they look a lot more professional. 

Blog props are becoming more and more popular and there are so many different things out there now that you can buy that are really beautiful for photographs however having a collection of props certainly doesn't happen overnight and if you see something you like, you have to grab it there and then or you'll miss out! It's only the past few months that I've really gone wild with buying new bits and bobs and I've managed to accumulate quite a few different pieces that work really well for my blog, without breaking the bank. I'll be sharing with you my favourite items I have discovered to use as blog props and where you can get them.

Latest In Beauty Cosmopolitan Holiday Edit

Beauty subscription boxes are something I never really saw myself trying, I'm a bit skeptical about spending my money on a box of products that may not really interest me however I've become a lot better at trying and experiencing new products lately, all thanks to the wonderful subscription services I've tried. I will admit that some boxes can be a little off-putting, especially if they just contain a load of samples, but some are really worth the money and contain full-size products to try.

I recently picked up the Latest In Beauty Cosmopolitan Holiday Edit which I thought was totally new for this year but after a little research it seems it was also available last year. The beauty box contains £94 worth of holiday essential beauty products that you can grab for just £20, with a small  delivery charge of £3.95 unless you can find a discount code. Although I'm not a big holiday go-er it is nice for me to have some summer suited products in my collection and you never know, we may have a super hot summer here in the UK some day! I am super impressed with the contents of this box as you receive so many products, so let's take a look at the contents of this years Holiday Edit.

Janina Ultra White Teeth Whitening

Having a clean bright smile is quite a thing for me, I got into teeth whitening a couple of years ago and since then I've trialled quite a few different products and brands that offer whitening products. It's National Smile Month from 15th May to 15th June and the lovely brand Janina challenged me to try some of their whitening products to achieve a brighter smile. Janina products are made from fruit enzymes so they are claimed to offer a less harmful whitening experience than many other products on the market, this intrigued me as I am very keen to use products that aren't harmful to my teeth.

YSL Brow Couture Wardrobe

Since I really got into makeup a few years ago, brows have always been a big thing for me, I’ve always really enjoyed experimenting with new brow styles and especially finding new brow products that work for me. Eyebrows frame your face and now that I’ve gotten into a routine of styling mine on a mostly daily basis, it can feel strange to not follow this routine. I remember the days when I was at school and I didn’t even own an eyebrow pencil, there was also a real lack of good quality products on the market yet now, it is so hard to choose what product to try next. I like my brows to look neat, tidy and natural whilst also matching my hair colour nicely, I can’t stand an eyebrow product that is too dark or warm toned. A few weeks ago these lovely products from Yves Saint Laurent landed on my doorstep and I have been absolutely loving using them, they have completely transformed my eyebrow routine and I’m here to tell you more about each product in the Brow Couture* range
