Beauty Blogger Swap with Kel Loves

I have just taken part in my first beauty blogger swap with Kel from Kelloves. The swap was organised by Naomi from who very nicely paired everyone up!

The budget was only £10 and I really could've spent so much more as I had such fun shopping for products for the swap! 

Here's what Kel sent me:

Pretty wrapping :)

I resisting ripping this open especially to take a picture, it smelt amazing as soon as I opened it so I guessed that there might be a lush product involved!

Soooo exciting! 

Rimmel Apocalips in 102 Nova 

This is the perfect pink for me so i'm really impressed with Kel's choice. I've avoided Boot's so not to tempt me with all the products that I don't need but i'm so happy with this! I put it on as soon as I opened it. So far, the quality seems great and i'm glad I got to try one of these so I can think about getting other colour's in the future.

Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose

Another pink product, bang on Kel, the raspberry scent is yummy and you can never have enough lip balms, I haven't tried any of the Nivea tins before but i've read a lot of good reviews.

Dead Sea Face Spa - calming and cleansing fabric facial

I like having reserves of face masks for when you get chance for a bit of a pamper night. This is a fabric one so will be easy to use. 

Lush Bath Ballistic in Space Girl

I've had this before it smells lovely and you can never go wrong with a bit of Lush!It's covered in glitter and has popping candy in :)

Dairy Milk with Oreo

I can't resist chocolate so this is a nice treat. Four hours after getting it, it's still untouched but it won't remain that way for much longer! 

I love absolutely everything Kel has got me so thank you! thank you! thank you! 

The swap was so exciting to take part in, i'd definitely be up for taking part in however many more!



  1. aww swaps are always so adorable, especially when there's food involved!

  2. What a lovely bunch of products, I've only ever done one blogger swap, would love to do another! xx

My Roaccutane Journey

This post is more audience specific than usual but I hope it may be of help to anyone going through a similar situation. I want to give you an insight into my Roaccutane journey as I know I often turned to searching Google for answers. Never did I think i’d be posting this on the internet but here goes... Onto the back story, I had oily/ combination skin as a teenager and suffered with the usual teenage spots that cleared up as I approached my 20’s. Later, I was on the combined contraceptive pill and decided to take a break from it when I was around 23. I stopped it for 6 months and was hit with a backlash. Stopping the pill and a change in hormones is the only explanation I can put my breakout down to. My skin broke out significantly. I had courses of Lymecycline prescribed and Zineryt (Zinc & Erythromycin) Topical Lotion. With minimal success from these, I was referred to a dermatologist. BEFORE Before all of this, I could probably count the number of times

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon! Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'Kensington High Street' Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Plums the Word' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Barely There' Color Club Nail Lacquer in 'Glossy Seal' Nails Inc London Polish in 'Battersea Park'       Color Club Nail Varnishes have a great opaque consistency and you can easily get away with one coat. I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great
