Since discovering Fleur she has stayed one of favourites and was actually one of the bloggers that inspired me to start my own blog and YouTube Channel. <br />You can probably imagine how excited I was when I received an invite to the launch of Fleur's new beauty line. Fleur has been killing it this year with the launch of her book <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Glam-Guide-Fleur-Force/dp/1472228405/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1443877930&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=fleur+de+force" target="_blank">The Glam Guide</a> and an <a href="http://www.feelunique.com/brands/eylure/fleur-de-force" target="_blank">eyelash range with Eyelure</a>. The launch of Fleur De Force Beauty is brilliant and I am so excited to share the collection with you after meeting the lovely lady herself and hearing her love for the products.<br /><br />Fleur's first make up collection is exclusive to <a href="http://www.feelunique.com/brands/fleur-de-force" target="_blank">feelunique.com</a> and features a cute make up bag, two eye shadow quads and six lipgloss shades. The range is themed around Fleur's love of stars and her gorgeous pastel/water colour branding.<br />I absolutely adore the make up bag, it has the most beautiful design with pastel colour and rose gold details. I like that it has poppers so you can expand the bag, if like me you have a habit of carrying too much stuff!<br /><br />I have the eye shadow quad in Luna Rose, a rose gold toned quad that is right up my street. The four shades include a matte soft pink, a metallic rose gold, a shimmery ivory with a hint of pink and a mauve with hints of gold. I used to be scared of these tones of shadows as I am very pale but I actually really enjoy wearing them. I love that all the shadows in this quad work well together easily and that you can get quite a few different looks out of it.<br />The shadows are soft, pigmented and easy to blend. A really great quality and affordable product.<br /><br />I love wearing lipstick and actually feel a bit funny without it, however I'm not the biggest fan of glosses because I hate that sticky feeling most have. Fleur's range includes six shades from neutral pink to your traditional reds, there is a shade for everyone!<br />I have the shades Written In The Stars, a neutral pink which is slightly darker than my own lip colour, and Lucky Star, which is a blue toned red.<br /><br />The glosses actually feel really nice and aren't that sticky. I think it's impossible for a gloss not to have that texture but these aren't tacky feeling or a magnet for your hair to stick to.<br />The pigmentation is great and you only need one application for an opaque finish. The glosses have a sweet scent and wear off nicely after about four hours.<br /><br />I really am impressed with Fleur's first make up collection and really hope she expands it!<br />It's very affordable, very cute and the products are great quality.<br />Have you tried any of the <a href="http://www.feelunique.com/brands/fleur-de-force" target="_blank">Fleur De Force make up range</a>?<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-H0TbTtfXkdw/Vg_PLelgqsI/AAAAAAAAKMQ/w9Ua4qVUhqY/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-H0TbTtfXkdw/Vg_PLelgqsI/AAAAAAAAKMQ/w9Ua4qVUhqY/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><br /><br /><br /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">*pr samples, review 100% honest as always</span>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-69753820075076185872015-09-23T13:56:00.000+01:002015-09-23T13:57:14.954+01:00Being MIA<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Rp6lzLz5rtQ/VgKfFe5L-VI/AAAAAAAAKK4/nftlHfzOQDc/s1600/9ef9e667b0ec36949b5c91b285d2ebfe.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Rp6lzLz5rtQ/VgKfFe5L-VI/AAAAAAAAKK4/nftlHfzOQDc/s320/9ef9e667b0ec36949b5c91b285d2ebfe.jpg" width="320" /></a></div>So I've basically been missing in action for the past month on this blog, to be honest even longer.<br />I've been possibly the worlds worst blogger this year. I've been posting once a week, if that, and feel completely out of the blogging world and community.<br /><br />I don't even feel like it's right to try and make excuses, but basically life got busy and my YouTube Channel grew a little bit so most of my time has been spent uploading two videos a week over there. I've been blogging for over three years and making videos for about a year properly. Doing something new and challenging has taken over my time and the blog has kind of faded away into the background.<br />The less I blogged the worse I felt about myself and my blog, it's kind of like that snowball effect where it's got to the point where my 'blog self confidence' is at a very low point. I've been struggling with some personal issues as well lately, I've been feeling quite down and worthless, so the last thing I've wanted to do is face the reality of my pretty crap blog!<br /><br />I considered just deleting this website and moving on from it, but I still have so much love for blogging. I know my blog is at best average, and the lack of effort I've put into it means it really is kind of a waste of internet space at the moment. But I don't want to throw something away that I've worked on and has been a huge part of my life for over three years.<br /><br />I think one of the hardest parts about blogging is trying not to compare yourself to others, I've watched other bloggers achieve great things and grow brilliantly whilst I've stayed static for so long. Meaning my motivation and passion has faded. When I've had time to blog I've just put it off in favour of other things.<br /><br />I've accepted that my blog will always just be what it is and isn't a high profile/glossy/top blog that we all know and read. However I have a passion for writing and am going to try and jumpstart my blogging game again.<br /><br />My lack of blogging the past few months means I don't actually think anyone reads anymore, but if you do then thank you so much. It means more than you'll ever know and I'm very sorry for being incredibly awful lately!<br /><br />I'm still very active everywhere else on the internet, just not where the attention is needed. Here's hoping I'll be back in the swing of things very soon.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-it6DL8vbSKc/VgKg2P-1SSI/AAAAAAAAKLE/pKBRYfipIqs/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-it6DL8vbSKc/VgKg2P-1SSI/AAAAAAAAKLE/pKBRYfipIqs/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a></div>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-90325110402459969602015-08-24T21:41:00.000+01:002015-08-24T21:41:10.660+01:00Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-NIK4CXpTdjk/VdjdU5vPAgI/AAAAAAAAKJY/02JuhtatVhU/s1600/barry%2Bm%2Bspeedy%2Bnail%2Bpaint%2B1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint" border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-NIK4CXpTdjk/VdjdU5vPAgI/AAAAAAAAKJY/02JuhtatVhU/s640/barry%2Bm%2Bspeedy%2Bnail%2Bpaint%2B1.jpg" title="Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZQB9qY_jpIw/Vdje7fP7fCI/AAAAAAAAKJk/iA9uLoGCCEg/s1600/barry%2Bm%2Bspeedy%2Bnail%2Bpaint%2B2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint" border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZQB9qY_jpIw/Vdje7fP7fCI/AAAAAAAAKJk/iA9uLoGCCEg/s640/barry%2Bm%2Bspeedy%2Bnail%2Bpaint%2B2.jpg" title="Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><img alt="Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint" border="0" height="426" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-g1ASsGcT7jY/VdjftJC7BaI/AAAAAAAAKJs/0TwHgTuhlRM/s640/barry%2Bm%2Bspeedy%2Bnail%2Bpaint%2B3.jpg" title="Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint" width="640" /></div><br /><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Barry-M-Speedy-quick-dry-nail-paint-10ml_1655138/" target="_blank">Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint £3.99 each</a></span><br /><br />I hate waiting for nail varnish to dry! I am far too impatient and no matter how long I leave it, it usually smudges. Barry M have recently expanded their fab nail product collection with a new line of nail polishes that dry very quickly. Here are the original 9 shades in the line up, there is pretty much a shade for everyone here.<br /><br />This line of nail paints has bottles and names of course all designed around the theme of speed and racing. I love the racing flag lids, they are different, fun and easily identifiable. The names too are all excellently themed.&nbsp;</div>This range introduces a brilliant new brush, which makes applying polish very easy and fast. It's a completely flat brush with a rounded end, it covers the whole nail and gives you an even coat in one stroke. &nbsp;I'd love to see this style of brush introduced into other Barry M polishes.<br /><br />The line up of Speedy <a href="https://www.google.co.uk/#q=barry+m+speedy+quick+dry" target="_blank">Quick Dry Nail Paints</a> includes shades:<br /><br />In A Heartbeat- slightly muted salmon pink, very classic and sophisticated.<br />Kiss Me Quick- traditional, bright baby pink.<br />Full Throttle- fun bright peach and orange mix, quite creamy in finish. <br />Stop The Clock- a pastel yellow with a hint of a grey nude. &nbsp;<br />Lap Of Honour- a dusty mauve shade with a grey tint.<br />Road Rage- a mint green that leans slightly more towards a sea green shade.<br />Pole Position- a pistachio green that is very unique.<br />Eat My Dust- a soft powdery blue, very pretty.<br />Pit Stop- a nude grey mix, one of my favourites.<br /><br />I think it's quite a basic collection in terms of exciting shades, but that's in no way a bad thing. I view this collection as a great way to pick up some go to polish shades with the clever speedy dry formula.<br /><br />Do the polishes actually dry fast? Yes they do. Two coats is touch dry in under five minutes.<br />The finish is quite normal, not too glossy or too matte. Some of the lighter shades need three thin coats but most the range is good with two normal coats of polish.<br /><br />If you are in the market for some new nail paints then definitely pick these up!<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hKhIYOCrl3M/Vdt_-O1L0WI/AAAAAAAAKJ8/58hBltfCnBs/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hKhIYOCrl3M/Vdt_-O1L0WI/AAAAAAAAKJ8/58hBltfCnBs/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><br /><br />Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-38683946911517490192015-08-10T17:08:00.002+01:002015-08-10T17:08:48.881+01:00imPRESS accent press on nails<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ffrQWLrY1bo/VcjCw0on5oI/AAAAAAAAKIs/gFYxEr7NF5k/s1600/impress%2Bnails%2B1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="462" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ffrQWLrY1bo/VcjCw0on5oI/AAAAAAAAKIs/gFYxEr7NF5k/s640/impress%2Bnails%2B1.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-gO12hfDmfQg/VcjCwmeL4HI/AAAAAAAAKIk/c_UQzQ6ZbIE/s1600/impress%2Bnails%2B2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="430" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-gO12hfDmfQg/VcjCwmeL4HI/AAAAAAAAKIk/c_UQzQ6ZbIE/s640/impress%2Bnails%2B2.jpg" width="640" /></a><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2_MnzhTYkwY/VcjCw1wm14I/AAAAAAAAKIo/TIIKzqRH64g/s640/impress%2Bnails%2B3.jpg" width="640" /><br /><br />imPRESS Accent Press on Nails £6.98</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I'm terrible at nails, I can just about paint them nicely but can't do any sort of nail art. I love the idea of well manicured nails but I'm too scared to get any sort of gel or acrylic nails done properly. I've used imPRESS nails before and think they are great for a quick and easy manicure.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">imPRESS Accent Nails come in a range of different designs, I've tried out the Bells and Whistle print which I think are really fun. The nails are mint green, one of my favourite colours, with an aztec print accent nail. In each set of imPRESS Accent Nails you get a range of different nail sizes with numbers on for you to match up the correct sizes. There is also a nail file and wipe.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Even for someone as incapable as me, imPRESS nails are so easy to apply. You simply wipe over nails and file them, then match up the correct sizes and press them on. I like to apply pressure for a minute or so on each nail just to make sure the nail is properly secure. This set of nails lasted four days before they started to fall off. I don't think that's bad at all for nails that don't use any glue or anything that could cause damage to your nails.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">If you've got a last minute event or party to go to, or are heading to a summer festival or generally just want an easy manicure, then you should definitely check out the imPRESS range. There are so many fun colours and designs.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">You can pick up imPRESS Accent Nails in Asda and other beauty suppliers.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Have you tried imPRESS nails before?</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-inHsU1HyBOY/VcjFZTW3HCI/AAAAAAAAKJA/7KNlWKp-wqE/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></div><br />Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-25151365258826502922015-07-21T14:04:00.002+01:002015-07-21T14:04:43.866+01:00Elemis British Botanicals QVC Offer<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: left;"><img border="0" height="470" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-UgRKDqcai-0/Va4733YDACI/AAAAAAAAKII/9N9_r1oyP24/s640/elemis.jpg" width="640" /><br />&nbsp;If you are an Elemis fan then you will want to set a reminder for this awesome offer than launches this Sunday the 26th of July (also my 21st birthday). <br />For one day only from midnight Elemis are launching a 6 piece British Botanicals Face and Body Experience collection.<br /><br />The collection comes in the most beautiful floral themed tote bag designed by illustrator Amanda Ross, it really reflects the British Botanical range.<br />Inside the bag are six of of Elemis' 'best of British' products that together are worth over £180!

I have hair that is quite thick and naturally very wavy so a good detangling brush is essential for me.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The problem I've had with my Tangle Teezer is that it doesn't have a handle so I find myself dropping it sometimes and it's not the easiest to use for hair styling. I've wanted to find a new detangling brush that was great for keeping my hair knot free but had a handle, luckily I have found the Denman Tangle Tamer Ultra!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Firstly I have to say how much I love the bright pink colour of the brush, it is very cute and makes it pretty much impossible to loose! It also comes in blue, orange, green and yellow.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The brush is designed for people with long and thick hair, and it has nylon bristles which are super soft so that they will glide through to remove tangles without doing any damage. The bristles work well on both wet and dry hair, they don't snag or feel like they are pulling harshly on the hair. It is really gentle and never feels like it could be doing any damage.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The handle is my favourite part of the Denman Tangle Tamer Ultra, it makes styling my hair a much easier thing to do. I've honestly no clue how I managed without a paddle style brush for this long. I like the size of the head and bristles, as I can brush through my hair in less strokes. The brush has a good weight as well, it's not light enough that I'm forever dropping it but also not too heavy that it makes my arm ache.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I wouldn't say this is as great at remove bad tangles as the Tangle Teezer but it's a much better every day brush. It's one of those products that now I have it, I don't really remember how I coped without it!</div><br />Have you tried any hair brushes by <a href="http://www.denmanbrush.com/acatalog/Tangle-Tamer-Ultra.html" target="_blank">Denman</a>?<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-8CPqYJo8NEg/VamkOqklXMI/AAAAAAAAKH0/9NJzT6q_mjU/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-8CPqYJo8NEg/VamkOqklXMI/AAAAAAAAKH0/9NJzT6q_mjU/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><br />Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com5tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-40283149194685762402015-07-13T11:21:00.001+01:002015-07-13T11:38:52.603+01:00ultimate capsule wardrobe*<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IxIcttLLfZI/VaLti8j3RfI/AAAAAAAAKGs/XNKzWGCkxgo/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2015-07-12%2Bat%2B23.42.43.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IxIcttLLfZI/VaLti8j3RfI/AAAAAAAAKGs/XNKzWGCkxgo/s400/Screen%2BShot%2B2015-07-12%2Bat%2B23.42.43.png" width="335" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">There are a few different clothing items that I think are definitely worth spending a little bit more money on, things that you know you are always going to love and they will never go out of style.

Do you want one that is matte, shimmery, one shade, a mixture of tones etc? With contouring becoming more and more popular and summer finally here, it's great that one brand has pretty much got bronzers sorted. Too Faced have a bronzer for everyone. They have eight in their collection, so you can start your own bronzer wardrobe and find the perfect bronzer for every occasion.<br /><div><br /></div>Too Faced have covered all possible bases with their bronzing wardrobe. Whether you are after a matte shade for contour, a bronze and blush in one, something natural or something luminous, there is a bronzer for you.<br /><div>The collection is organised into three mini categories of 'Bunnies', 'Chocolate Soleil' and the other two special shades.<br /><br />The Chocolate Soleil bronzers are matte shades that are easy to use whether you want to contour or warm up your complexion with a shade suited for your skin tone. The Chocolate Soleil bronzers are made with cocoa and have a delicious scent, &nbsp;you'll find it really hard not to constantly smell as it's that addictive. They are very smooth and easy to apply, with a texture that blends well.<br />Milk Chocolate Soleil is the lightest shade, which is great if you are fair skinned like me. Then there is Chocolate Soleil for a medium to deep tan and Dark Chocolate Soleil for a rich and deep shade. Of course anyone one can use the shade they want too but there really is a perfect matte Chocolate Soleil shade for everyone!<br /><br />The two special bronzers in the range are the Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer and the Endless Summer 16 hr Bronzer. Pink Leopard has the cutest leopard pattern that's made up of bronze and blush shades to give a gorgeous glow. It works best applied on the apples of the cheeks to brighten up your complexion. It's quite illuminating and all the shades compliment each other nicely.&nbsp;</div><div>The Endless Summer 16 hour Bronzer has a special double bound formula that will last all day long, even in the heat. Perfect if you are on holiday, at a festival or even battling a commute in the heat! It has a medium to deep tone with a slight amount of shimmer. It's great for warming up the complexion.</div><div><br /></div>The three different Bunny Bronzers offers a selection of bronzing products with different shimmers and colours.&nbsp;<div>Sun Bunny is a two shade bronzer with pink undertones that gives a natural looking glow and tan as if you'd just caught the sun.&nbsp;</div><div>Beach Bunny has four shades; a light golden shimmer, a deep bronzer, a medium bronzer and a pink shade. This is great as a do it all bronzer as you can use the shades for contouring, highlighting or just adding warmth to your complexion.&nbsp;</div><div>Snow Bunny is great for that glow you get when you've been out in the cold! It has a white shimmer, a pale pink shimmer, a champagne shimmer and a medium bronzer. It gives a natural looking glow and again is great as you can mix and match to use the shades individually or all together.&nbsp;</div><div><br /></div><div>I'm pretty much in love with the whole Too Faced Bronzing Wardrobe and would 100% recommend checking them out if you are in the market for a new bronzer or have now realised you have something missing from your collection.&nbsp;</div><div>The quality is brilliant, the packaging is gorgeous and the price is fair in my opinion.</div><div><br /></div><div>Have you tried any of the <a href="https://www.toofaced.com/c/bronzers/" target="_blank">Too Faced Bronzers</a>?</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Uu2n2sQLO7Q/VZ0LruyjVYI/AAAAAAAAKGY/697fSvKptnQ/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Uu2n2sQLO7Q/VZ0LruyjVYI/AAAAAAAAKGY/697fSvKptnQ/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><div><br /></div>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com10tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-10486801094936380702015-07-02T10:09:00.000+01:002015-07-02T10:09:03.974+01:00My Everyday Make Up Routine<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><img border="0" height="179" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-lSQzSGT1xKg/VZT-YwnIiKI/AAAAAAAAKEk/iUVD3X66JBs/s320/make%2Bup%2Broutine.jpg" width="320" /></div><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iKXxzgYAoY4" width="560"></iframe><br /><br />I recently finally filmed my <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKXxzgYAoY4" target="_blank">everyday make up routine</a> for my YouTube Channel.

I love the feeling when it's finally done and styled, but the process of having to wash, dry and style my hair is something I hate doing. My hair is quite long and naturally thick, so it can be a bit of a procedure to blow dry and defrizz.<br />I was very excited to hear about the new BaByliss Pro tool that was designed in collaboration with Ferrari and claims to be very powerful but still lightweight! I absolutely love electrical beauty and gadgets, so was very excited to put this new tool to the test and see if it's worth investing in.<br /><br />The&nbsp;<a href="http://www.feelunique.com/p/BaByliss-Pro-ItaliaBRAVA-Hair-Dryer-Black" target="_blank">BaByliss Pro ItaliaBRAVA Hair Dryer</a> is powered by by the new MaxLife PRO brushless motor, designed in collaboration with Ferrari, to give up to 10,000 hours of drying compared to just 700 hours of standard styling tools. It has a high power of 2400W, stronger air pressure and much faster airflow. It comes with two different slim nozzles for precision drying and a noise reducing filter that you can pop on the back of the dryer.<br /><br />I love the professional and sleek look of the dryer. It definitely looks like something you'd find in a top salon. It has a glossy black design with a handy loop on the lead so you can hang it up if you wish. The cord is 'tangle-free' and 2.8m in length, it's a good sized lead that I've had no issues with. The dryer weighs just 530g, which is very light for a tool with this much power.<br /><br />The BaByliss Pro ItaliaBRAVA has two switches on the handle that control the speed and heat settings. There is also a cold shot button, which works well to add extra shine and kind of seal or set your hair. I love the Turbo Boost button on the back of the handle, this gives you a very high powered blow dry that gets my hair completely dry in around 5 minutes, very speedy for my hair!<br /><div><br /></div><div>I first thought £120 was a lot to pay for a hair dryer, but after using it for a couple of months I genuinely think it is worth the investment. It completely dries my hair in half the time of my previous dryer and leaves it much less frizzy and in a better condition. It's a very lightweight dryer and stops me from getting that annoying arm ache, it's also impressively quiet for something so powerful.<br /><br />The&nbsp;<a href="http://www.feelunique.com/p/BaByliss-Pro-ItaliaBRAVA-Hair-Dryer-Black" target="_blank">BaByliss Pro ItaliaBRAVA Hair Dryer is currently on offer for just £60 on Feel Unique</a>, I would 100% recommend ordering one whilst it's on this fantastic deal. It's seriously worth it.&nbsp;</div><div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-26VYW8IQd1E/VYX0EemWiWI/AAAAAAAAKDY/FamztOTMciM/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-26VYW8IQd1E/VYX0EemWiWI/AAAAAAAAKDY/FamztOTMciM/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><br /></div><div><br /><br /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">*pr sample, review 100% honest as always</span></div>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com4tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-22210379622843344172015-06-21T10:00:00.000+01:002015-07-15T14:05:46.173+01:00They're Real Colour Push Up Liners<a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hvTyRSOdL-Y/VYXjf6uTmqI/AAAAAAAAKCs/zkV5lWT1mog/s1600/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: left;"><img alt="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hvTyRSOdL-Y/VYXjf6uTmqI/AAAAAAAAKCs/zkV5lWT1mog/s640/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B1.jpg" title="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" width="640" /></a><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AhEjfwwf580/VYXjdulY-EI/AAAAAAAAKCg/3lJpWhniG88/s1600/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: left;"><img alt="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" border="0" height="468" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AhEjfwwf580/VYXjdulY-EI/AAAAAAAAKCg/3lJpWhniG88/s640/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B2.jpg" title="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" width="640" /></a><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-pCMkoRRi5h0/VYXjfrbmV4I/AAAAAAAAKCo/vtiX-xwXKiI/s1600/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B3.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-pCMkoRRi5h0/VYXjfrbmV4I/AAAAAAAAKCo/vtiX-xwXKiI/s640/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B3.jpg" title="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" width="640" /></a><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0UWnxhuXzSA/VYXj4PdzJVI/AAAAAAAAKC4/jmkIXOXI6zI/s1600/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B4.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0UWnxhuXzSA/VYXj4PdzJVI/AAAAAAAAKC4/jmkIXOXI6zI/s640/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B4.jpg" title="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" width="640" /></a><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-o5nPsg0wQzo/VYXlg9soLYI/AAAAAAAAKDE/jW6u5Sb_Tq8/s1600/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B5.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" border="0" height="446" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-o5nPsg0wQzo/VYXlg9soLYI/AAAAAAAAKDE/jW6u5Sb_Tq8/s640/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B5.jpg" title="They're Real Colour Push Up Liner" width="640" /></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk/product/view/theyre-real-push-up-liner" target="_blank"><span style="font-size: x-small;">They're Real Coloured Push Up Liners* £18.50</span></a><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hvTyRSOdL-Y/VYXjf6uTmqI/AAAAAAAAKCs/zkV5lWT1mog/s1600/theyre%2Breal%2Bliners%2B1.jpg" imageanchor="1"></a></div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;">I am a complete eyeliner addict and wear it every single day (well every day I wear make up!) I'm addicted to it and genuinely sometimes don't even feel myself without it. One of my most favourite eyeliners is the <a href="http://www.elliesramblings.com/2014/06/review-benefit-theyre-real-push-up-liner.html" target="_blank">Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner</a>, which launched last summer. It's a pigmented, matte black gel liner that comes in an easy to use pen with a clever flexible nib applicator.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;">I may be obsessed with eyeliner but I have never used any other colours except for black, until I started using the newest additions to the Benefit They're Real family, the fab coloured liners.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;">Benefit are adding four bold but wearable shades to the Push Up Liner family. When I heard three of the shades were jewel toned based shades I was a tad scared thinking they would be the sort of colours you'd have only worn in the 90s or if you are under the age of 10, but I am so glad to be wrong.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;">The new shades are Beyond Blue, Beyond Brown, Beyond Purple and Beyond Green. Each of the shades is easily wearable and would compliment any eye colour. The colours are deep in tone meaning they are actually quite subtle and very grown up. They can look less harsh than the black shade, so are great if you are looking for something a bit softer. &nbsp;I've been wearing the blue a lot and absolutely love it.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;">I wont talk too much about the applicator, as it's the same as the original black liner, but if you find eyeliner hard or are looking to try a new technique then definitely give this a go. The formula is the same pigmented, creamy and long lasting product as the original black liner. These babies do not budge. They are going to last all day long, are waterproof and smudge proof. I know some people do not like the lasting power of the liner because it can be hard to remove but I absolutely love it and know it's going to be there at the end of the day no matter what.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;">I'm a neutrals make up girl, except for lipstick, so the word 'colour' really does scare me sometimes.

Do you hate it when you tie your hair up and are left with a huge kink or bump in your hair from your hair tie? The No-Bump Bobbles completely take away that problem!<br /><br />The <a href="http://thenobumpbobble.tictail.com/" target="_blank">No-Bump Bobbles</a> are bump free, snag free and kind to hair whilst also being incredibly cute and fun. Each bobble is hand made from a high quality durable fabic. I had the best time picking five bobbles from the huge range available.<br />Obviously I was straight away drawn to the Disney themed bobbles and picked out a Frozen theme, a Disney Princess design and a Minnie Mouse pattern. I also chose a mint green bobble with silver spots and a cute white glittery one. I thought the glitter bobble may shed it's sparkle but the glitter is still completely in tact!<br /><br />I didn't think the bobbles would hold my thick hair up but they really do and I can wrap the bobble round my hair three times securely with no problems. They aren't so tight that when I wear them on my wrist they hurt, which is something I do a lot because they are so cute, I hate hair bands that leave an indent on your wrist!<br />The best bit about the bobbles, apart from the brilliant designs, is that they really work. They hold my hair in place and don't leave any sign of a bump when I take my hair out. They are really kind to your hair and aren't going to cause the damage some of the regular style bands can do.<br /><br /><a href="http://thenobumpbobble.tictail.com/" target="_blank">The No-Bump Bobbles </a>are really reasonably priced at around 60p each depending on what design you go for. For £3 incl delivery you can pick a bundle of 5 bobbles to create your own selection, or there are also some cute pre selected mixes as well.<br /><br />I haven't even picked up another hair band since trying out The No-Bump Bobbles and I 100% recommend checking out the website. They are so cute and fun, I can't wait to take the Disney ones on my next Disney trip.<br /><br />What do you think?

The <a href="http://www.origins.co.uk/products/10950/Skincare/Range/GinZing/index.tmpl" target="_blank">Origins GinZing range</a> is very popular thanks to it's energy boosting ingredients, such as coffee bean, that boost hydration and energy levels. The GinZing range now includes a whole host of skincare products a and a few make up items as well!<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.origins.co.uk/product/10950/26237/Skincare/Range/GinZing/GinZing/Energy-boosting-moisturizer/index.tmpl" target="_blank">Origins GinZing Moisturiser</a> is a light weight, oil free product with a gel like consistency that is intended to be used as your morning face cream. GinZing contrains Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean with both work to boost your skins energy levels, increase hydrating and improve radiance. The packaging is sturdy but lightweight, you'd have no problems travelling with it. I always love the way Origins Products look, they have recognisable packaging that gives off a high end feel.<br /><br />The first thing you will notice about GinZing is the beautiful smell! It honestly smells delicious, a gorgeous citrusy scent with a hint of cocoa and coffee. It reminds me a little of a chocolate orange but just not in a sickly way that would stop you from wanting to apply it first thing in the morning. The scent and the gel like texture work so well together to give you the most refreshing feeling when you apply.<br />It's quite cooling and instantly sinks into my skin leaving me with a glowy appearance that actually looks like it had it's 8 hours sleep! I have dry and dehydrated skin, so I pair this with a really hydrating serum to give my skin the perfect morning wake up routine.<br /><br />This has become my new go to daily moisturiser, especially now we are coming into the warmer months and I need something lighter in texture. I think GinZing will work on any skin type needing an energy boost because of it's oil free and light weight consistency.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.origins.co.uk/product/10950/26237/Skincare/Range/GinZing/GinZing/Energy-boosting-moisturizer/index.tmpl" target="_blank">GinZing Moisturiser</a> is also affordable at £23 for a 50ml.

I pretty much always just purchase what ever brand is on offer in Boots. ghd recently got in touch and asked if I'd like to try out a couple of their styling products and I was very excited to give the Final Fix Hairspray a go. ghd is my go to brand for hair straighteners and I recently did a post on the beautiful <a href="http://www.elliesramblings.com/2015/04/review-ghd-rose-gold-hair-straightener.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">rose gold straighteners</a> that I bought last year.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The ghd Final Fix Hairspray is a lightly fragranced spray designed to keep hair in place but still be light enough to be brushed out to let you restyle your hair. It is humidity resistant and fine enough that it doesn't leave your hair with that horrible crispy feeling you can sometimes get from a hairspray.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">My hair is naturally fairly thick and wavy so I have to straighten it after I've washed it to try and keep it under control. When it's humid out or it rains my hair frizzes, using the ghd Final Fix helps to stop my hair from becoming a bit of a birds nest when it's a bit damp or humid outside. It holds my hair in place whilst helping to give my hair a bit of volume, it also smells gorgeous!

I wanted to share this great deal that's currently running in Boots until the 26th of May.<br />Diet Coke wants to encourage women to 'be impulsive' and make a statement, so they have teamed up with L'Oreal to offer you a way to transform your look with a bargain deal.<br /><br />Purchase a 500ml bottle of Diet Coke until May 26th and you will receive £5 off a L'Oreal Paris Color Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick, making the lipstick better than half price!<br /><br />L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick has a breakthrough technology that blends oils (argan, lotus flower, camelia seed and rose canina fruit) and pigment to give the colour intensity of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss and the smoothness of a balm. Very similar to the YSL Glossy Stains, the L'Oreal L'Extraordinaire Lipsticks are very pigmented, opaque and soft on the lips. The packaging also has a much more luxe feel that you'd expect for the price.<br /><br />If you pass by a Boots before May 26th then it's definitely worth treating yourself with this fab deal!</div><div style="text-align: left;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_YufxcI-tMk/VVuKpJi6O2I/AAAAAAAAJ3w/7X39j4Y7xlQ/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;">*not a sponsored post.&nbsp;</span></div>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com7tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-84386175572358045362015-05-16T14:19:00.002+01:002015-05-16T14:19:18.212+01:00Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease<!-- POST SIGNATURE --> <div style="clear: both; margin: 0px; text-align: left;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-bJUstPjs3bk/VVc7OJvMQ3I/AAAAAAAAJ2Q/MVTXiZUSAWc/s1600/bold%2Bmetals%2B1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" border="0" height="428" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-bJUstPjs3bk/VVc7OJvMQ3I/AAAAAAAAJ2Q/MVTXiZUSAWc/s640/bold%2Bmetals%2B1.jpg" title="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" width="640" /></a><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--esczZe7ojg/VVc7QFYWSGI/AAAAAAAAJ2Y/lzt0mWlvwmw/s1600/bold%2Bmetals%2B2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--esczZe7ojg/VVc7QFYWSGI/AAAAAAAAJ2Y/lzt0mWlvwmw/s640/bold%2Bmetals%2B2.jpg" title="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" width="640" /></a><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oJ4Dcn2yXQA/VVc7QgSLySI/AAAAAAAAJ2c/EDFPyX5_N4k/s1600/bold%2Bmetals%2B3.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" border="0" height="408" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oJ4Dcn2yXQA/VVc7QgSLySI/AAAAAAAAJ2c/EDFPyX5_N4k/s640/bold%2Bmetals%2B3.jpg" title="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" width="640" /><img alt="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" border="0" height="414" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-KBSl-nMBBEY/VVc7Ti5ACmI/AAAAAAAAJ2o/80p1djZUC0Q/s640/bold%2Bmetals%2B4.jpg" title="Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease" width="640" /></a></div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Bold-Metals-Collection-by-Real-Techniques-201-Pointed-Crease_1645021/" target="_blank">Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease* £12</a></span><br /><br />Real Techniques are pretty much the only make up brushes I use. The original collection is very affordable and brilliant quality. It's one of those beauty items that once I bought I really wondered what I did before owning! Real Techniques are incredibly popular and this year the range was expanded to include a new luxury collection of brushes.<br />I think it's important to mention that the Bold Metals brushes are aimed more towards those working in make up artistry or someone with more make up experience etc. Of course anyone can use them, I'm in no way a pro myself, but these brushes are definitely different to the original Real Techniques range. The collection is beautiful to look at but I'm not completely in love with the whole range.<br /><br />I've been trying out a few of the Bold Metals brushes and actually have varying opinions on each brush I've tried. My favourite by far is the <a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Bold-Metals-Collection-by-Real-Techniques-201-Pointed-Crease_1645021/" target="_blank">201 Pointed Crease brush</a>. The 201 Brush is part of the Platinum Bold Metals line up, which consists of brushes for applying eye make up.<br /><br />I love the look and feel of the 201 Pointed Crease, like all the Bold Metals brushes it has a weighted feel that I really like. The handle is much longer than the standard RT brushes and generally has a much more luxe and professional look and feel. I love the sophisticated platinum metal handle that is tapered at the ends to fit easily into MUA brush belts and holders.<br /><br />The 201 is a densely packed, stiff and tapered brush. This brush is brilliant for applying shadow in the socket and for blending out. The shape of the brush means you can use the tip and sides of the brush for different things. It packs on the colour where you want it and is great for softening the edge for a professional looking smokey eye. I also like to use this to smudge and soften liner and shadow both on top and under my eye. It's a fair sized brush so if you have very small eyes it may not be best for you. However I've also tried it for blending concealer and it works really well!<br /><br />I'm not completely in love with the whole range but really do love the <a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Bold-Metals-Collection-by-Real-Techniques-201-Pointed-Crease_1645021/" target="_blank">201 Pointed Crease</a>!<br />Have you tried any of the Bold Metals brushes?<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-g7VoMYPY0T0/VVc8gimgPzI/AAAAAAAAJ2w/thOa3n7Hr-M/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-g7VoMYPY0T0/VVc8gimgPzI/AAAAAAAAJ2w/thOa3n7Hr-M/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a></div><br /><br /><br /><br /><span style="font-size: xx-small;">*pr sample, review 100% honest as always</span></div>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com6tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-84887311832203511662015-05-14T09:06:00.002+01:002015-05-14T09:10:36.886+01:00Benefit Brow Bar Experience Vlog<a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9eXjY9jtm_o/VVRWPuhn3UI/AAAAAAAAJ10/kU8AhGcxL3I/s1600/VLOG.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="225" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9eXjY9jtm_o/VVRWPuhn3UI/AAAAAAAAJ10/kU8AhGcxL3I/s400/VLOG.jpg" width="400" /></a><br /><br /><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FHRJqyy7g88" width="560"></iframe><br /><br />If you head to a Benefit Brow Bar this month and book in for a brow wax then not only will 100% of profits Benefit make go to charities helping women and girls, you will also receive a free full size Gimme Brow (my absolute favourite brow product!)<br /><br />I popped to Benefit yesterday to get my brows 'wowed' but also wanted to share with you a vlog I did from March when I filmed the whole process to show how Benefit wax and tint brows to give that amazing brow we all long for. I'm a massive wimp with pain and actually think the brow wax is completely fine, I wouldn't have been back so many times if it was in anyway uncomfortable.<br />My favourite part of the Benefit Brow Service is the tint as it makes a huge difference to my brows. I have fairly sparse brows that need a lot of work to give me that defined arch I love, but the tint makes a huge difference as you will see in the vlog!<br /><br />You can watch the vlog <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHRJqyy7g88" target="_blank">online here</a>.<br /><br />Don't forget to book in for your #boldisbeautiful brow wax in May and be part of an amazing cause!<br />Find your nearest Benefit Brow Bar <a href="https://www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk/beauty-services" target="_blank">here</a>.<br /><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-l0HhPSmKnn0/VVRWXdTwerI/AAAAAAAAJ18/k0soyML1-W4/s1600/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><img border="0" height="48" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-l0HhPSmKnn0/VVRWXdTwerI/AAAAAAAAJ18/k0soyML1-W4/s200/blog%2Bsignature.jpg" width="200" /></a>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-85085381831071624152015-05-12T15:24:00.001+01:002015-05-12T15:52:13.750+01:00Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose<!-- POST SIGNATURE --> <br /><div style="clear: both; margin: 0px; text-align: left;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-TJ3C9ZteWHA/VVEi7gh3gSI/AAAAAAAAJ1A/rHwkgbzIK6s/s1600/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" border="0" height="426" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-TJ3C9ZteWHA/VVEi7gh3gSI/AAAAAAAAJ1A/rHwkgbzIK6s/s640/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B1.jpg" title="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-LRT-LSttfxg/VVEi706rEeI/AAAAAAAAJ1E/zk6vtbhda3Q/s1600/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" border="0" height="414" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-LRT-LSttfxg/VVEi706rEeI/AAAAAAAAJ1E/zk6vtbhda3Q/s640/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B2.jpg" title="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UGvGT7lL1bY/VVEi-HUZyQI/AAAAAAAAJ1Q/Pxuiu67bgLY/s1600/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B3.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" border="0" height="422" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UGvGT7lL1bY/VVEi-HUZyQI/AAAAAAAAJ1Q/Pxuiu67bgLY/s640/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B3.jpg" title="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ij1-iH8d_58/VVEjBQXn0yI/AAAAAAAAJ1Y/Oh9ddnZKjjs/s1600/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B4.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" border="0" height="418" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ij1-iH8d_58/VVEjBQXn0yI/AAAAAAAAJ1Y/Oh9ddnZKjjs/s640/clarins%2Beyeshadow%2B4.jpg" title="Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: x-small;">Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose £19</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The summer weather is on the way (I hope) and with the promise of warmer days and longer nights come the limited edition launches from beauty brands for summer 2015! I always love the Clarins limited collections and this year's 'Aquatic Treasures' theme has not let me down. The collection is full of easy to wear products that will give you that bronzed goddess look we all long for!I have been lusting after a few pieces from the collection, next on my list is the bronzer, but my priority was this gorgeous Ombre Shadow and not just because of the beautiful packaging.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I am already a huge fan of the Clarins Ombre Iridescent Eyeshadows and when I spotted the limited edition Aquatic Rose shade I knew it was going to be mine! I've talked about my love for all things rose gold hundreds of times before, so Aquatic Rose could not be more up my street if it tried.</div>I absolutely love the packaging, it's very simple but I love the rose gold lid. The original Ombre shadows have the Clarins gold lids but the two in the Aquatic Treasures collection have lids that correspond with the shadow shade, which I think is fab!<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The <a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Clarins-Ombre-Iridescent-Eyeshadow_1658115/" target="_blank">Aquatic Rose Ombre Shadow</a> had a cream to powder formula that stays put all day on me without fading or creasing. If you have oily eyes you'll love the long lasting formula of these and if you have drier eyes then you will love the cream texture. The shadow is incredibly pigmented, the above swatch is just one swipe of the product. The creamy texture makes the shadow really easy to apply either with brushes or fingers, I use a more compact brush to apply the shadow and then my <a href="http://www.elliesramblings.com/2014/07/review-mac-217-blending-brush.html" target="_blank">MAC 217</a> to blend. The tiniest amount goes a really long way so this little gem is going to last me a very long time.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I absolutely love the rose golden bronze shade of Aquatic Rose. I usually apply a few different shadows but for the past week I've been using just this because I love the colour so much. It's a shimmery golden bronze shade with a hint of pink. If you are also a rose gold fan then you definitely need to get yourself down to a Clarins counter and snap one of these up before they are gone for good!

There has been a huge surge in electrical beauty products over the past couple of years with cleansing brushes leading the way in popularity with claims that they can clean your skin ten times better than a manual cleansing method.<br />I've only ever tried the <a href="http://www.elliesramblings.com/2014/08/review-magnitone-lucid-cleansing-brush.html" target="_blank">Magnitone Lucid Cleansing Brush</a>, which I like a lot but now much prefer the new Remington Reveal. A couple of months ago I was kindly invited to meet Dr. Barbara Kubicka, Remington's Skincare Expert, who taught me all about the Reveal Brush and why it's so great!<br /><br />The Remington Reveal is a lightweight and sleek cleansing brush, in a cute mint green colour, that has been designed to improve the performance of your cleanser instead of exfoliating your skin like most cleansing brushes do. The Remington Reveal comes with a wash bag, which is great for taking your brush with you if you go away, three brush heads with protective caps and a charging stand. I love that the brush stands up as it feels much more hygienic than having to lay it down.<br /><br />The normal brush head is for everyday cleansing for all skin types, the sensitive brush head gives a gentle but still through cleanse for sensitive skin and the massage brush head helps to give tired skin a plumper appearance and radiant glow and can be used on all skin types. You can also purchase an exfoliating brush head, all brush heads should be replaced between every 3-6 months and can be bought at most retailers.<br />There is also three different speed settings so even the most sensitive skin can use the Remington Reveal by picking the sensitive brush head and lowest speed setting.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Remington-Reveal-FC1000-Cleansing-Brush_1679174/" target="_blank">Remington Reveal</a> is best used once a day, you'll easily find the routine that works best for you. It helps to deep cleanse the skin, shifting any impurities and dirt that's clogging your skin and pores, leaving you with an instantly brighter and fresher looking complexion. You can use the brush in the shower and it has a handy 60 second timer with a pulse every 20 seconds to tell you when to move to another area of your skin.<br /><br />Using the Remington Reveal brush daily has really improved the condition of my skin. I had a couple of tiny spots appear from the first few days of using the brush but they went away much faster than I expected and have not returned. It's incredibly gentle and really feels like it's properly cleansing the skin and not like it's exfoliating or damaging in anyway. My skin instantly looks much brighter when I use this and over the past month the texture is much smoother and clearer.<br /><br />I really recommend the Remington Reveal Cleansing Brush if you are after a brush that's going to give you that deep cleanse without the harshness that you can get from other brushes. It's incredibly gentle and really does the job.<br />At £79.99 it's also a great price point!<br /><br />Would you try the <a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Remington-Reveal-FC1000-Cleansing-Brush_1679174/" target="_blank">Remington Reveal Cleansing Brush</a>?<br /><img height="45" src="https://sites.google.com/site/pipdigz/ellies_ramblings_signature.png" width="190" /><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;">*pr sample, review 100% honest as always</span></div>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com2tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1621769244223760186.post-83673334678159553962015-04-27T17:31:00.001+01:002015-04-27T17:31:08.646+01:00Chelsea Harbour Hotel Spa<!-- POST SIGNATURE --> <div style="clear: both; margin: 0px; text-align: left;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-iIzYzsTsF-U/VT46kE4KTzI/AAAAAAAAJwU/SM7SOgE0d4w/s1600/59758432-H1-Spa_1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: left;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-iIzYzsTsF-U/VT46kE4KTzI/AAAAAAAAJwU/SM7SOgE0d4w/s1600/59758432-H1-Spa_1.jpg" height="402" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vm5Z4gnD9AQ/VT46r3X9amI/AAAAAAAAJwc/v9MRQ5iM_Qc/s1600/59758440-H1-Spa_2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: left;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vm5Z4gnD9AQ/VT46r3X9amI/AAAAAAAAJwc/v9MRQ5iM_Qc/s1600/59758440-H1-Spa_2.jpg" height="478" width="640" /></a></div><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xp_rxsiL1Xg/VT5Fac_C4nI/AAAAAAAAJw0/A-S2DxGYD3A/s1600/IMG_8510.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xp_rxsiL1Xg/VT5Fac_C4nI/AAAAAAAAJw0/A-S2DxGYD3A/s1600/IMG_8510.JPG" height="426" width="640" /></a><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1JxLKQ0j-CY/VT46zotSh0I/AAAAAAAAJwk/gZKUKK9Z70M/s1600/63247966-H1-Treatment_Room.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: left;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1JxLKQ0j-CY/VT46zotSh0I/AAAAAAAAJwk/gZKUKK9Z70M/s1600/63247966-H1-Treatment_Room.jpg" height="426" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Last week I finally experienced my first every spa day and all I can say is WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME TO GO SOONER?! I was kindly invited to the spa at The&nbsp;<a href="http://www.millenniumhotels.co.uk/thechelseaharbourhotel/blue-harbour-health-club-spa.html" target="_blank">Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London</a> to try out their facilities and have my first ever massage with my friend Louise! I have to say I had no idea what to expect but I had the most relaxing afternoon and have already begun trying to convince my Nan to book a spa weekend with me.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The Chelsea Harbour Hotel is situated in an exclusive, tucked away area of Chelsea Harbour in west London. The harbour area feels like a hidden away and secret part of London. The hotel overlooks the marina and the River Thames, it also has lovely views of the rest of London. The Chelsea Harbour Hotel is a 5 star retreat that would be the perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend in the city where you are close enough to see the sights but can still unwind in peace.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The hotel has a calming atmosphere that continues through to it's onsite health club and spa. The spa has a range of facilities including a fully equipped gym, health club, hair salon, pool, sauna, steam room, relaxation room and six treatment rooms. Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely team and provided with our gowns, slippers and towels to use whilst there. We were shown to the spacious and modern changing and locker area that had powerful showers with toiletries provided, a make up station and an area to dry and style your hair with tools provided.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Myself and Louise popped on our swimming gear and robes and really got in the 'spa frame of mind'. We headed down to the pool area to swim a few lengths but mostly just to relax. I loved that the pool space was light and airy, with a wall of windows letting in lots of natural light. Sometimes indoor swimming pools can feel cramped but the Chelsea Harbour Hotel pool is open and spacious.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">After our swim we checked out the sauna and steam rooms. The steam room felt amazing and was a great skin treatment as it opens up the pores to help get rid of any impurities and nastiness. I only popped into the sauna for a couple of minutes and couldn't help myself but recreate the scene from Frozen when Wandering Oaken shouts *YooHoo* to his family in his sauna!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">It was soon time to head to the Relaxation Room to wait for our aromatherapy full body massages, to be honest I would have happily sat in the Relaxation Room for an hour as it was incredibly calming in there! With mood lighting, comfy arm chairs and soothing music, we both almost fell asleep whilst we waited to be taken to out Therapy Rooms.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I had no idea what an aromatherapy full body massage would be like and was a tad worried it would be awkward but I was so wrong. The therapist put me at ease straight away explaining what she would be doing and asking if I had any questions. At this point I did ask for her not to touch my feet as I am a feet hater, this wasn't a problem at all and I felt very relaxed in her capable and soothing hands!&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The massage itself was incredible, it was strange at points when the therapist was pushing out the tension but she was quick to check that I was okay and her pressure was suitable. I spent most of the hour trying to stay awake as I felt incredibly relaxed, calm and comfortable. I honestly felt so much lighter and like an actual weight had been lifted off me afterwards.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">An afternoon like this isn't something I'd be able to afford every week but I definitely would treat myself to a massage every few months or so. The Aromatherapy Massage costs £80 for an hour, a fair price for a five star hotel in an exclusive area of London. It's definitely worth they money for the incredibly relaxing experience and feeling that stayed with me for days afterwards!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">If you're looking to book a spa weekend or just fancy a treatment I'd highly recommend <a href="http://www.millenniumhotels.co.uk/thechelseaharbourhotel/" target="_blank">The Chelsea Harbour Hotel Spa</a>, even the two hour long tube journey home didn't stress me out after a wonderfully relaxing afternoon.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">Now go back and count how many times I used the word relaxing, ha!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"><br /></div><img height="45" src="https://sites.google.com/site/pipdigz/ellies_ramblings_signature.png" width="190" /><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;">*pictures provided by Chelsea Harbour Hotel, (wasn't able to take my own due to not wanting to photograph others in swimming stuff!)</span><br /><span style="font-size: x-small;">*press opportunity, review 100% honest as always</span></div>Ellie Steadmanhttps://plus.google.com/109735658792533260071noreply@blogger.com8
