So...? Fragrance Must Haves

The So...? body mists have become a firm favourite of mine, there's one in every bag that I own as well as an array of them on my dresser to use throughout the day. There is such a huge range that you are guranteed to find a scent that you love, from sweet to musky. So...? are the frangrance of my  childhood and everyone else seems to think the same thing. On instagram there were comments of people saying they haven't tried them in years and my flatmate had a throwback to when she used to buy them just the other day and now has her own collection going. 

The amazing team over at So...? have allowed me to giveaway four of my favourite scents in a giveaway, the four included are some gorgeous ones and picking was a hard task.

Vanilla just had to be in my top scents, it smells like ice cream and reminds me of the summer. This scent is for those whole love sweet smelling things and like for the smell to be known as it is very pungent. Then we have Pink Grapefruit which is a tropical mixture of grapefruit, mango and passion. Together they make this amazing fresh yet fruity smell and this is a great one to spray after a workout as it is very uplifting.

Then there's Wild Berries which is more for the person who loves a fruity scent but doesn't want to smell sweet. This scent is the perfect balance and great to use in the morning as a refreshing spray and to keep in your handbag as it is great to wear everyday without being overpowering. Finally there is White Petals, this is a difficult one to describe but if you are a candle fan then imagine your clean scents such as cotton. It smells clean, almost like fresh washing but not powdery? If that makes any sense at all to you then you will love it, promise. 

To win these scents all you have to do is head over to my twitter and RT my pinned tweet, follow both my self and the So Fragrance account. The giveaway is only open until the 29th of May. Open to UK residents only. 


Good Luck!

Frizz Fighting Trio

 John Frieda Frizz EaseThere are a few beauty things that I am really bad at, one being looking after my hair. It never really occurs to me that I need to look after it, a trip to the hairdressers only happens when I have time and can remember. Products wise, I don't tend to use many things due to not knowing what is best for my hair and what isn't. These past few weeks, I have testing out three products from the John Frieda Frizz Ease range*on my very straight, thick hair. Who knew that frizz targeted products would actually help and make a difference.


Everyday Makeup for Spring

For me all the seasons are just smashed into one, this post might be themed for spring but who even knows when spring actually is in the UK. It can be flip-flops and strappy tops weather one minute, then the next its jumpers and boots. This in between weather has meant one thing, finding the right balance for my makeup. Having a matte coverage is still important as oil is a issue but still keeping it  glowy and bronze. These are the products that I've been applying to my face almost everyday and they never let me down in terms of longevity and suitability.

Nip & Fab Haul & First Impressions

Nip and Fab seem to be the brand that everyone is talking about at the moment, they have a highly raved about skincare line and to add to that a makeup line that is focuses on quality. After seeing so many people talk about their products, it was time I tried them and here's what I picked up. 
As a general note, the packaging for their makeup line is very simple yet so pleasing to the eye. I love anything monochrome and creating a line with fuss free packaging is just the way to my heart, its simple, sleek and looks good in the colletion too. Their skincare products similarly have sleek packaging, each different range has a colour scheme which makes it easier to know which products contain the same star ingredient.

nip and fab glycolic fix

The two skincare items are from the Glycolic Fix range, this is their best selling range and I have very high hopes. Both products aim to give the skin radiance and exfoliate to leave a smoother complexion. I've only been using these for around a week so can't give you my whole opinion but so far so good. I've been using the cleansing pads (£12.95) every morning before applying makeup and the scrub every other night. Together both of these have made my skin look brighter and pores next to invisible, it has to be done to these glycolic heroes as nothing else in my routine has changed. Very exctied to see what contiuned use will mean. 

The first makeup product that went straight into the basket was a liquid lipstick, this is in the shade Biscuit (£7.95). It was a tough challenge choosing which one to order, there are ten shades in total and each one is on the nude spectrum. As the range is new, there aren't really any swatches floating around apart from what is on instagram but I went with my gut and ordered this shade. This shade is really pretty when you swatch it but on the lips it is completely different, it is a true brown shade and doesn't compliment my skin tone very well. Applying a darker/pink lip liner underneath helps slightly but I think I need to go to a stand and see all the shades. Formula wise it is very matte, long lasting and dries instantly! 
Nip and Fab Blusher Palette

The next two purchases were real no brainers, I love a good palette and one that has multiple shades for different moods are my favourite. The Blushed palette (£8.95) is an absoutle bargain, containing four completely different shades it is one palette perfect for the summer. All four of these shades are very pigmented, so you only need a small swipe on the cheeks and they are all matte! I love a good matte blush because it is so much easier to wear with all the other things you apply to the cheeks. My favourite way to wear these are actually mixing them in a diagonal pattern, combined they create some gorgeous looks. 
Nip and Fab Stroboscopic

Now the last product is the one that I am the most excited about, a highligher palette (not that I need another one). Let me introudce you to the Stroboscopic palette (£15), that includes six gorgeous golden, sunkissed shades that I am head over heels in love with. Each shade is buttery, pigmented and not glittery. I've used all the shades at least once to see what they are like and each one is beautiful on my skin tone, can't pick a favourite just yet but I have a feeling it's going to be the middle, bottom row. These shades also look like they would make a gorgeous brown eye look, can't wait to try them as eyeshadows! 

Overall, I am beyond impressed with Nip & Fab, makeup and skincare alike. Can't wait to carry on using them and see what happens, also need to pop into a store with a makeup stand to swatch the eyeshadow palettes, other lipsticks, foundations and concealers - basically the whole range!
