Beauty Swap with Callie Rose

HannahMarieBeauty recently organised a beauty swap and I signed up as soon as I saw it as I really enjoyed the last swap that I did! I was paired up with Callie Rose and we each had a budget of £30.

Callie really treated me and got me some amazing products and I am so grateful!

She got me a range of products and i'm really excited to try them all!

Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara

Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses

Topshop Matte Lipstick in Tease

I've only tried a nail varnish from the Topshop Make Up line so i'm excited to have this! It's a perfect colour for me and i'll get loads of use out of this.

Sleek Contour Kit in Light

Sleek is another brand that I haven't really ventured into. This is a lovely bronzer and highlighter and they seem really pigmented.

Montagne Jeunesse Passion Peel Off Face Masks in Passion


I've wanted to try Steamcream for ages! The different designs on the tin are appealing and a Union Jack design is so classic. I have high hopes for this and this was the last thing that I expected to be in my box of goodies!

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel

I've tried this before and you can't go wrong with products from Simple, I think that i'm going to save this for my holiday :)

Carmex Lip Balm

Only the day before I got this, I was talking about how I needed a new lip balm so this is perfect.

Vaseline Hand Cream

Thank you again to Callie Rose, I really appreciate everything you got me and hope that you enjoy your products!

To see what I got Callie, you can see her blog post here.

Thank you to Hannah for organising the swap. I think they are so fun to take part in and would love to do an international swap one day.

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
