Debenhams at INTU Merry Hill

A few weekends ago, I headed to Debenhams at Intu Merry Hill to speak to the girls from Elemis, Elizabeth Arden, Urban Decay and Juicy Couture. 

Firstly, the lovely girls at Elemis gave me a facial and went through some of their products. Elemis to me is definitely a spa brand and leaves you feeling so refreshed.



I was a bit concerned about having to leave Debenhams bare faced after my Elemis facial but no fret needed, I was sent over to Urban Decay to have my make up done. I had a purple themed look created with the electric palette.

I actually ended up purchasing the Optical Blur Brush as I was really impressed with how it packed product onto my skin. I love Urban Decay for their Naked palettes but they have some exciting releases planned.


To complete my make up, I headed over to Elizabeth Arden for a Lipology talk. The ladie's here were so happy to answer our questions so don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it!

The 8 hour cream/ lipbalm is the perfect answer to chapped lips and I haven't stopped using it since. Their lipglosses are gorgeous and come with a handy mirror. I have my eye on a few colours!


Juicy Couture have released 2 new summer fragrances: Couture La La and Malibu. We tasted jelly beans of the nodes and had to guess them which I think was a really good idea. Couture La La is my favourite with fruity nodes of Apple, Mandarin and Pink Sugar Crystals whereas Malibu has Watermelon, Tangerine and Blackcurrant. 


Debenhams is the perfect place to get all your favourite products, its amazing how many brands are under one roof! Thanks to Debenhams for inviting me along and thank you to all the girls at the counters, you were all so lovely and helpful!

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 all of this, I could probably count the number of times I had left the house without ma…

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 brush and this plum colour is perfe…

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.

Mix Plate And Crystal Effect Statement Necklace £18


Short Crystal Effect Necklace £14



Other items I considered buying:

This grey jewelled clutch bag caught my eye and was £20.
