WHO'S IN MY SIDEBAR? INTERVIEW WITH RACHAEL 'ALL THE LITTLE THINGS'


Hello lovelies! Today, I'm sharing with you all one of my top advertisers this month, Rachael, from All The Little Things. Rachael's blog is fairly new, but she's off to a flying start with recent posts including a Halloween themed Pumpkin Carving post, an Urban Decay Haul and much more! To introduce you to the blogger behind the blog, I asked Rachael a few questions, so, I hope you enjoy reading!

When and why did you start your blog?
I started my blog at the end of August 2013 after months of reading other blogs. I had them all bookmarked on my Nexus7. After a trip to Chester Zoo while on holiday with my lovely boyfriend Gary he said to me about sharing some of my photos online in a blog because they were good. i love my photos and he thought others would too as i sometimes tend to capture pictures that are in that once in a life time category. I thought about it and thought about it and finally one day I kick started my blog.
I didn't know what i would name it nor did i know what i was doing but Gary helped me decide and All The Little Things x was born and now it is a staple in my every day life. Simply the name is because I have been through some very tough times in the last two years and i am always talking about how all the little things in life matter.
i really love sharing my thoughts and photos and reading other peoples views and opinions. 


What is your favourite thing about blogging?
I love being able to share my view and getting my point across in different ways. Being the only girl from a family of three boys and my mummy and daddy its not always been easy to do that but its getting easier. It is great to know people like to read your opinions and respond with their comments. It really does make my day seeing a new comment waiting for me.
Blogging has actually helped me to believe in myself a bit more and has helped me with my confidence struggles.


Since starting a blog, what has changed for you? (i.e. shopping habits, any new friends etc!)
shopping habits definitely! Although i find that my spending has calmed down a bit i find that i am trying things i never would have normally tried and i have a list the length of my arm of things i want to try.
I have been in contact with some lovely people, leaving comments etc (including you of course Chloe) and it means a lot that people take the time to leave lovely comments. Hopefully i will make some new friends out of the blogging community.


Where do you get your blogging inspiration?
i get my inspiration from other blogs that i read. I check my dashboard a few times a day and see some amazing posts wrote by amazing people. It means a lot that people see that you have wrote something that matters to them in some way.
i also get inspiration from my family and Gary. Without them i don't know where i would be.


What is your staple fashion item for A/W 2013?
Oh gosh, this is a tricky one as i spend most of my time working so i am constantly in my uniform. But i really love the tartan trend, rock chic and who can resist them jumpers with your jeans. I am getting a new handbag today that i have had my eye on for a while so keep an eye out for it because its going to be my new "baby" and i also love my new caterpillar style fur lined booties. So cute and super comfie for jeans! I will probably post these too :-)

What is your go to A/W beauty look?
Since starting to work for Lancome, i have become a bit more adventurous when it comes to make up. I love paying close attention to my eye make up with berry colours, bronzes, green and greys. Also i have got more adventurous and love a good bold lippie but some days care for that tinted lip balm for the more natural look.

Where else can we find you? (i.e. twitter, instagram, pinterest etc)
unfortunately my social media life 9nly goes as far as my blog and that is how i love it. If you want to get in touch with me or ask something that's where you will find me. I don't like Facebook and i wouldn't use twitter. My blog, google+ and email are as far as i go. But to be honest i really love it that way!

LOVE NAIL ART



Hi lovelies! Just a quick post today as I wanted to share this super cute, super simple nail art design with you all. In a recent haul post, I featured a nail art pen from topshop and I'd been dying to give it a go! Nail Art is something I've always adored, but only ever did on clients and never on myself. So, to get into it, I thought I'd pick up my first nail art pen, as it seemed a good (and simple!) place to start!

To create this design, I used two coats of Model's Own Utopia for a nice clean, neutral base, then simply wrote on my ring finger using the nail art pen. This pen has a tip like a fine liner and is pretty easy to use, my writing was a little shaky but for a first go I'm pretty pleased with it, a little more practice and I'll be a pro, you'll see. You need to wait until the polish underneath is completely dry before use, so don't attempt to do your nails half an hour before going out!!

What do you think of this nail art design? Would you like to see more? Let me know in the comments!

P.S. I have a Halloween Special offer on my Ad Packages - 50% off everything until 1st November only - check them out here and email me on chloe@chloesway.com if you want to purchase one!

BENEFIT HOW TO LOOK THE BEST AT EVERYTHING







Hiya lovelies! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend, I've had a fab time chilling watching movies and attempting to start my Christmas shopping (or finally buying myself a new coat, same thing) and now I'm spending my Sunday afternoon blogging and waiting for this storm to develop! Eep. Anyway, yesterday my very lovely boyfriend surprised me with this gorgeous little gift from the Benefit Counter. I guess Darren must pay more attention than he lets on when I drag him around endless clothes shops and makeup counters, because yesterday he presented me with this little beauty that he picked out completely on his own, boyfriend points awarded in the form of a bacon sandwich for breakfast.

This little gift set is the 'How to Look the Best at Everything' set in the shade medium, which turned out to be the perfect set for me while my skin still has a hint of colour (I'm still using a subtle gradual tan, I refuse to give in to winter skin just yet), I do have to use a foundation that is very slightly darker to blend my face to my neck because no matter how much fake tanning I do or don't do, it will forever be at least two shades lighter than the rest of my body. This kit includes mini versions of; 'Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow' foundation in the shade 'I'm So Money', 'Boi-ing' Concealers in shades 2 and 3, Hello Flawless Powder in the shade 'I'm Cute as a Bunny', POREfessional Primer and a little powder brush.This all comes is a cute little book shaped box with a pretty design, it looks perfect in my room! The box has a good sized mirror inside too, making it fab for travelling!

So, after trying these products today, I'm going to give you my first impressions of them all. First up, the Primer, which I don't need to give a first impression of as I've used it plenty of times and it has become my favourite primer of all time. This makes the skin look and feel smoother, it gives a flawless matte finish and reduces the appearance of pores dramatically. This alone makes the skin look ten times more flawless than before, so it's definitely a good start! Next up the foundation, which I've wanted to try for some time but wasn't sure whether to stray from my usual Doublewear as this one is definitely a much lighter coverage. However, lucky for me, I've been having a good skin week this week and this foundation was perfect for that. It feels light on the skin and has a thin, slightly runny consistency, so it isn't thick or heavy on the skin at all. While the coverage is light, you can definitely build it up if you want to, but I quite like the more natural look. I'll be honest, my skin isn't really too bad generally, so I don't actually always need a full coverage, so I think I'll definitely consider this as a more natural day to day alternative to my beloved doublebwear. Next up, the concealers, this was another Benefit product I hadn't tried before and while I don't really have spots or redness at the moment, I used the slightly lighter shade on the dark circles under my eyes and it covered them really well. They don't have a high coverage instantly, but can be built up to be full coverage. I may review these again if I get to a time where my skin needs a little more help in that department but so far, I'm impressed! Finally, the powder. 'Hello Flawless' powder is one I'd been umming and ahhing over for a while as I'd heard great things, but I'm incredibly emotionally attached to my MAC MSF natural. However this powder did not disappoint, it mattifies, sets your makeup and provides a little extra coverage, perfect for wearing over the lighter foundation, seriously impressed!

Honestly, on first impressions alone, I would say I'd definitely buy all these products in full size. I'd possibly need to give the concealer a second look, but I've been super impressed with everything so far. I may do an update on these products if anyone would be interested in that as I think it's good to give everything a few days or weeks wear when you're trying out a new foundation routine.

I think this kit is perfect for anyone looking to try new face products as you get all you need in one kit and you know you're getting products that are made to work well with each other. It's perfect to try before taking the plunge and going for the full size! You can purchase this kit at Boots, Feel Unique, the Benefit website or any department store.

What do you think? Have you tried this kit, or would you like to?

P.S I've had a little blog makeover! I'd love to know what you all think? Let me know in the comments!

TOPSHOP REALLY RUBY LIPSTICK REVIEW




Hi lovelies! Today, I thought I'd do a little review of the gorgeous lipstick I hauled in my last post (the one below this one!). It's one of Topshop's newest additions to their gorgeous lipstick collection and one I could not leave on the shelf while browsing through Topshop's makeup counter.

This lippie is a gorgeous bright, blue toned red with a super opaque and glossy finish on the lips. I love topshop lipsticks, but have founds few of the others I've tried to be a teeny tiny bit drying as many of them are fairly matte, which I do love, but what drew me to this one was how glossy it looked in the bullet. The formulation of this lipstick kind of reminds me of MAC cremesheen lipsticks as it's so opaque, smooth and feels super nourishing on the lips. It's very forgiving of dry patches of the lips, which is fab!

Sorry for the lack of on the lip swatches, my photos were all blurred and by the time I looked there was no light left and I really wanted to get this post up today! I'll hopefully add a photo to this post soon! On the lips though, this looks super glossy and has a completely opaque coverage. As it's a blue toned red, it makes your teeth look really white (provided you don't get any on your teeth, which I am known to do every now and again). It's just a super pretty classic red. I would say this would be fab on pretty much any skin tone as I've tried it with and without fake tan and it's a lovely contrast on pale skin, but also looks really glam with a tan. I think this would look particularly gorgeous on a darker skint one as it's so bright and beautiful. This lasts for ages on the lips, after a little while the gloss dies down a bit and you're left with a pretty red stain to the lips which last for a good few hours.

Overall, I'd totally recommend this to anyone, particularly this time of year with Christmas creeping up on us!

What do you think? Would you like to try this shade?

LITTLE HIGHSTREET MAKEUP HAUL






Hi lovelies! Just a quick one today as I tweeted the other day to ask if you guys would like to see a mini beauty haul of a few things I'd picked up lately and a lot of you said yes, so here we go! I was wandering round my local town with Darren on Sunday, initially looking for a coat, jumpers, scarves, generally Autumn appropriate things. However I managed to come home with none of those things and as I was disappointed at not finding a pretty coat or tartan scarf (not a single one to be seen, what is my town?), I decided to pop to Superdrug and Topshop to pick up some makeup goodies instead, because everyone knows that pretty lipstick and glitter nail polish (among other things) is the answer to all life's little let downs.

So, lately I've been off the gel nails and back on regular nail polish, so I've been going a bit nail polish mad these days. On this particular trip, I picked up one of the new Barry M Matte Polishes in Vanilla, a stunning light taupe/ grey colour, this reminds me a lot of the infamous Porchester Square by Nails Inc, but of course with a matte effect! I then picked up another of Barry M's latest additions, a Textured Effect polish in 'Princess', a stunning coral toned pink with gold and silver glitter. Then, as it is practically Christmas (right?), I figured I was definitely allowed to pick up another glitter polish and went for L'Oreal's Sequin Explosion. This is a beautiful multi-coloured glitter, it's more of a glitter topcoat, but it can definitely be built up for a full on sparkly effect! Finally, I picked up a Topshop polish, as I find it very hard to leave a Topshop makeup counter without one, I think the quality is fantastic and at only £5-6 a go, you can't go wrong! This time, I went for Keepin' It Sweet, a pretty light coral pink shade. This looks absolutely stunning with Barry M Princess on the ring finger, which the eagle eyed among us may have spied on my Instagram lately!

While in Superdrug, I spotted the MUA Matte Perfect Primer, which I heard is supposed to be the drugstore equivalent of Benefit's PoreFessional, which is my favourite primer of all time, so I'm giving this a go and I'll review it asap! I then picked up a couple of makeup bits in Topshop as they had a few bits and pieces I hadn't seen before so I decided to give them a go! I adore Topshop Cream blushes and had run out of my favourite 'Flush', but I decided before buying it again, I'd try a new one. I hadn't seen Morning Dew before so I'm not sure if it's old or new! But for those who haven't seen it, it's a pretty bright, warm toned pink that can be built up for a really bright colour or blended for a very subtle flush, so pretty! Then, as it's that time of year again, I decided I needed a new red lippie in my collection, so I chose Really Ruby, which is another I'd never seen in Topshop before. This is a stunning glossy, blue toned red. I'll do swatches and things in another post soon! Finally, while in Topshop, I noticed a few bits and bobs on sale near the til and found this black Nail Art pen for just £1! How could you not? I'm thinking of possibly doing some nail art tutorials with this, possibly Halloween themed? Let me know if you'd like to see that!

What do you think? Let me know if you'd like to see anything reviewed or swatched and I'll definitely get that up for you!

PAINT THE TOWN RED - VASELINE








Hi lovelies! Recently, I was contacted by the fabulous people at Vaseline, to try out their newest Limited Edition Vaseline tin, 'Paint the Town', which is a red tinted balm. I was invited to join the Paint The Town Blogger challenge, to create a glam look using red clothing or accessories. They sent me this adorable little box with some red goodies inside to inspire your look, this included a pretty red nail polish, some red lip sweets, a cute red rose hairband to wear when your hair is in a bun, a £20 topshop voucher and of course, the Paint the Town tin!

Paint The Town is a gorgeous tint that gives a tiny hint of red to the lips, giving a little bit of colour for a subtle red tint, instead of a full on red lip. Taking this into consideration, I decided to put together three outfits using a Red Blazer, showing how adding just the one red item can add so much to an outfit, without going full on red. The first outfit is a more dressy outfit, with a white chiffon top, gold sequin skirt, the red blazer adds a pop of colour, making the outfit a little more fun, while still being quite dressy. The next outfit is a little black dress paired with the red blazer. This outfit is a little more 'office' appropriate in my opinion, the red adds just a hint of colour, while still being fairly formal and smart. Finally, I paired the blazer with this gorgeous floral playsuit from missguided, the blazer brings out the red in the playsuit, making it the feature colour in the outfit.

I would recommend this Vaseline tin to anyone who likes a subtle hint of colour without going full on red. It's perfect for work, school or just for any subtle, pretty look!

What do you think of these looks? Would you like to try Vaseline Paint The Town?

REVIEW: LANOLIPS 101 OINTMENT*



Hi lovelies! Recently, I received the infamous Lanolips 101 Ointment and I was so excited to give it a go! I'm one of those people that constantly suffers with sore lips. If it's really hot, if it's cold, if it's windy, if it's Tuesday, they're sore. So, reading up on Lanolips, I was super excited to give it a go. This balm is made from only two ingredients, Lanolin and Lanolin Oil. Lanolips is the first and only brand to use Ultra Medical Grade Lanolin, which is 3 times as pure as regular medical grade, making it the purest and safest lanolin in the world. If you're sitting wondering what on earth I'm talking about, Lanolin is the waxy substance on sheeps fur! This sounds really strange and I did wonder what on earth it was going to be like, but Lanolin so closely resembles our own skin lipids that it makes it the ultimate moisturisation ingredient.

So, does this balm live up to all the claims? Well, in a word, yes! If I wasn't already sold on the gorgeous baby pink packaging and cute little sheep on the tube, I was the second I put some of this stuff on my lips. It has a very thick consistency - it was actually difficult to get it out the tube! But once you rub it between your fingers or smooth it onto your lips, the product warms up and glides on smoothly. My lips were super chapped when I put it on as it'd been a pretty cold day, but after applying it before bed and sleeping with it on, my lips where smooth, soft and no longer sore the next morning! This balm provides instant relief on sore lips as well as being incredibly healing for dry, chapped lips.

As well as being a fab lip product, Lanolips can also be used on excessively dry skin, cuticles, dry nasal passages, nipples and many more. As it's so pure and gentle, you can use this all over. This is particularly great in the winter when it seems as though just about everything is getting dry (except the weather, boo)!!

Overall, I'd thoroughly recommend this product. I can honestly say this may well be the best lip balm I've ever tried, I love it!

You can check out Lanolips on the Lanolips site and at Boots.

What do you think? Have you tried Lanolips? Would you like to?

MY VICTORIA'S SECRET FRAGRANCE COLLECTION




Hi lovelies! Perfume and fragrances are one of those things that I could easily spend all of my money on if I wasn't careful, and since Victoria's Secret came to the UK, the brand has all but taken over my perfume shelf! So, in this post I thought I'd show you all my collection and do some mini reviews to share my thoughts with you all.

Strawberries and Champagne Body Spray
"A tempting, fruity fragrance. Indulge in Strawberries & Champagne, a splash of flirtation with wild strawberries and sparkling champagne." Honestly, this is probably the scent I go to least of all the scents, as it's quite a 'little girly' scent in my opinion. It kind of reminds me of perfumes you had as a kid, very sweet and a little childish, but it's a cute, pretty scent and I did like using it during the summer but I probably wouldn't buy this again. If you like super sweet, very girly scents then I'd definitely recommend giving this a go! I think this would be a fab gift for a younger female relative for Christmas or a Birthday. For a body spray, this is very long lasting, particularly if you get it on your hair or clothes. So it'd be great for girls at school as it's light, but would last the whole day!

Sensual Blush Body Spray
"Indulge in Sensual Blush, a tempting blend of pink lotus & sultry woods." Sensual Blush is a more grown up and slightly deeper scent as it's more of a floral/ woody scent. However, it's still sweet and fruity, which I love. This is the kind of scent I'd go for if I fancy something a little more 'sophisticated'. Again, it does last a long time for a body spray, but I definitely want to get this in the perfume too.

Love Rush Body Spray
"Delight in Love Rush, an effervescent blend of wild currant and bright lily from our VS Fantasies collection." Love Rush is from VS Sunny Brights collection, which is exactly how I'd describe it. It's a bright, summery fragrance. Super girly and feminine, it's a perfect fruity floral, which is my favourite type of scent. This was my go to throughout the summer, great for freshening up during the day! For some reason, I don't find this is quite as long lasting as some of the other scents, but it's very pretty none the less. 

Pure Daydream Body Spray & EDT
"Delight in Pure Daydream, a bright blend of fresh pearl orchid and pink currant." Pure Daydream is by far my favourite scent from the VS fantasies collection, hence why I have it in Perfume and Body Spray (and body lotion and shower gel too!!). It's a super pretty, girly, fruity floral. If scents had colours, this would be a pink scent. It lasts all day, particularly when you use the body spray and perfume together. If you love a very girly, fruity scent, this is definitely for you!

Pure Seduction EDT
"Entice in Pure Seduction, a passionate romance of succulent red plum and sweet freesia." Pure Seduction is another of my favourites, it's slightly deeper than Pure Daydream, making it more appropriate for a night out or evenings. It's another 'pink' scent, if anyone knows what I even mean by that! You can probably tell that there's a slight running theme with my fragrances of choice. 

Such A Flirt EDT
"A vibrant, floral fragrance. Steal the spotlight in Such a Flirt, a tease of tempting starfruit and white orchid." I think Such A Flirt is very appropriately named as it is just that, a pretty flirty scent. It says starfruit and orchid, but it just reminds me of watermelon! I love this for everyday, it's a summery scent, but to be honest, I wear summery scents all year round! If you like the smell of watermelon, or like quite a fresh fruity scent, this is definitely worth a whiff!

Bombshell EDP
"A glamorous blend of purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid." This is my only 'proper' perfume from Victoria's Secret, I'm sure a lot of you will know of Bombshell as it's such a well loved scent in the Blogosphere! This is a gorgeous sweet, fruity floral with a slightly deeper base, it's the most 'grown up' of all my VS scents, but it's still light and pretty enough for every day, which I love. This is easily one of my favourite perfumes in my entire collection and I've had a couple of people say this scent reminds them of me whenever they smell it and I am definitely okay with that!

So, what do you think? Do you have a favourite VS scent? What shall I try next?
Also, I found this ebay link with a lot of VS body mists if you fancy trying one but can't get to a store!

WHO'S IN MY SIDEBAR? CAT HEARTS


Hi lovelies! I have yet another lovely advertiser to share with you all today! The latest addition to my sidebar is 'Cat Hearts' a lovely new Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle blog run by the gorgeous Catherine. Catherine had a beauty blog previously, but recently started Cat Hearts as a more 'general' blog, instead of being completely beauty focused. I think this is a fab idea, as I love a blog with lots of varied posts.

Cat Hearts is very new (she only started it on Wednesday!), but she already has a variety of different posts from Beauty Reviews to Fashion Hauls to Cooking! I love Catherine's layout too (I'm a sucker for grey and pink, if you couldn't already tell!!), it's super simple and girly - a girl after my own heart! Though this is a very new blog, I definitely think it's one to watch so get over here and check her out! You can also follow Catherine on Twitter and Instagram for more regular updates and pretty photos! (Tell her I sent you!)

Cat Hearts is one of my 'Large Ad Package' advertisers, for more information on Ad packages and if you'd like to advertise on Chloe's Way, check out my page here, for more info.

LIFE, LATELY

coffe shop catch ups - lfw - getting arty
blog awards hair and makeup - photobooth fun - with jess at the blog awards
at a family party with darren - barbie nails - poorly pup

Hi lovelies! It has been a very busy few weeks, much busier than I could possibly fit into 9 photos! So, I've just picked a few out and I'll update you all on what else has been going on very soon, ooh mysterious. It's basically just been the craziest few weeks and so much has gone on, mostly good and some not so much but overall pretty exciting and jam packed!
I've been trying to concentrate a lot more on spending time with friends and family and getting right back into regular blogging, as I had been letting it slip a bit where I'd been so busy with other things which I hate doing, my blog is so important to me and I hate not having the time to do it! A couple of things may stand out more than others in this post, such as the LFW picture and the Cosmo Blog Awards! I've posted individually about both of these things, so you can check those out if you'd like to. Both were absolutely amazing and both events I never in a million years thought I'd be able to attend, but thanks to my teeny tiny little corner on the internet and of course all you lovely people, I was able to go and I honestly can't thank you guys enough! I've been feeling a bit sentimental about a lot of things lately and my blog and my followers are definitely one of them. I think it's amazing how many lovely friends I've made and how many people I've connected with just through blogging, it's completely overwhelming when you think about it. I think I'm feeling another blogging advice/ ramble about blogging post coming on.
In other news, I've recently added a blog shop to my little list of pages up the top of my blog, it's a lot more user friendly than my old blog sale, so if you click 'raid my closet', you'll find it there! You may have also seen in my more recent post, I've made a few changes to my ad packages, they're now more suited to each blogger, with individual tweets and blog posts etc etc, I just wanted to give a little something extra with my ad packages so hopefully I've succeeded in doing so!

Anyway, this post has ended up a lot more rambley than expected, so I'm going to be quiet now!
What have you been up to lately?

One of her latest posts, 'Battle Of The Beauty Advent Calenders', is one of my favourites as it was so informative and detailed. I love a good comparison post and when it's a comparison post that gets me excited for Christmas, it's a winner all round!

CHANGES TO MY AD PACKAGES - ADVERTISE ON CHLOE'S WAY


Hi lovelies! I'm just writing a quick post today to let you know I've switched up my Ad packages. As my blog has been getting more traffic lately, I thought it was time I started properly offering advertising to my followers, as I found advertising on other blogs one of the best ways to get exposure when I was first starting out.

This means whatever package you go for, your blog is guaranteed to be the centre of attention! Read on for more details on each package. (This information will be on my advertise page for future reference).

IMPERIAL LEATHER FOAMBURST REVIEW*



Imperial Leather Foamburst Shower Gel - Sweet Vanilla and Cherry Blossom

Hi lovelies! Recently, I was contacted by the lovely people at Imperial Leather and asked if I'd like to try one of their newest products 'Foamburst' Shower Gel. Funnily enough, I opened the email just after getting back from Tesco, where I'd spotted the product for the first time. I was going to pick one up, but thought about all the other bath and shower products I had at home and decided against it. However, when I got home and read the email, I figured it had to be fate, right?

Right! I've always been a bit funny with shower gels, and basic super market brands or 'whatever's on offer', doesn't really do it for me. I love a bit of a gimmick. Soap & Glory's fun names and yummy scents or Victoria's Secret's pretty, girly packaging always lures me in. So when I read about this product, 'This luxurious body wash transforms from a smooth gel into an abundance of rich, creamy lather that glides across your skin like silk.', it's safe to say I was pretty excited to give it a go! I've had a few of the Rituals Foaming shower gels and I absolutely loved them, however I did think they were slightly expensive for a shower gel. Imperial Leather Foamburst though, is every bit as amazing as those! They come out initially as a gel like consistency, which quickly turns into a foam when you rub it onto your skin. As promised, this product feels super luxurious and silky on the skin, the masses of foam make me feel really clean too! As this is a gel to foam product, it makes it perfect for shaving. I've shaved my legs with this a couple of times and it's been amazing.

The one I have, Sweet Vanilla and Cherry Blossom, smells absolutely gorgeous, it's sweet and girly but very light and clean smelling. It's actually knocked my Victoria's Secret 'Such a Flirt' shower gel off the shelf, which says a lot for this beautiful little bargain! I really want to try the other scents when this runs out, I think 'Spicy Ginger & Orange' and 'Lime & Grapefruit' sound just perfect for a morning pick me up! Other Scents include 'Bergamot & Sea Minerals', 'Honey & Almond Milk', 'Green Tea & Jasmine' and 'Blackberry & Wild Fig'. I've found these on offer for just £2.00 each at Superdrug, so I'd definitely recommend giving these a go if you love a luxurious shower gel.

What do you think? Will you be picking up one of the Foamburst Shower Gels?

CATSEYE LONDON: REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY






Hi lovelies! Recently, I was contacted by a fab company called 'Catseye London', you may have spotted their products while wandering around in Urban Outfitters, House of Fraser or Selfridges. They mainly focus on Makeup Bags, Wash Bags, Purses, Pocket Mirrors etc all of which have fab photographic designs on them.

So, when Catseye asked me if I'd like to try out a couple of things from the site, I was super excited! I was asked to select a few of my favourite pieces and I told them I really loved the Glamorous Girls collection, particularly the ones featuring Barbie Dolls - so me! I mentioned that I would love to do a giveaway for my readers, assuming they'd just give me a makeup bag for myself and then one for you guys, but they were super generous and gave two 'Doll in Bathroom' wash bags and two 'Doll on Chair' Makeup bags so I could keep one myself and give one away!

These bags are such fab quality, the pictures look really cool and so different from any makeup bag I've had before (and I've had a lot). The sizing is perfect for both of them too, the wash bag would be great for taking hair/ skincare products with you when travelling and the makeup bag is perfectly handbag sized! These are both coated with plastic and lined with plastic, so they'd be super easy to wipe clean - no yucky makeup stains here! They have little pockets on the inside too, which would be perfect for little things like cotton pads or a little mirror in the makeup bag. Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality of these bags, they're so pretty I feel like I don't want them hidden away in my handbag or cupboards! Catseye also do lots of other designs, including a few of my personal favourites, 'Road Pugs' (SO cute), 'Blue Car Girl' and 'Guinea Pig'. There are so many more, way too many to mention so definitely take a peek!

So, if you'd like to win these beauties, enter with the Rafflecopter form below! Good Luck!
