The Body Shop Christmas Blogger Event

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day. Today I've got a post on The Body Shop Christmas Blogger Event I attended last Sunday at Meadowhall.
It was a really nice event, as soon as we came through the door we were greeted and offered drinks and said that we could have a look around the store.

Me and Kirsty went looking around the shop and especially at all the Christmas ranges, there was so many amazing goodies. The staff then came round offering us Christmas treats like mince pies, gingerbread and Christmas cake and asking if we wanted anymore drinks.

After looking around a bit, we got to watch a Christmas smokey makeup demonstration for the party season. They created such a beautiful look and after watching the demonstration I decided to buy this set with Grooving Gold Eyeshadow Palette that was used and The Sparkler which is a gold glittery mist that you can use on your body and hair and smells amazing. In the set you also got a nail polish with gorgeous gold glitter perfect for the party season. I will definitely do a review on the products soon, when I've tried them out.

There is the Grooving Gold Eyeshadow Palette and Swinging Silver Eyeshadow Palette they are limited edition for Christmas so if you want to try them out, go have a look in your local store.

After the makeup demonstration we had another look round the store and decided what we were going to buy. We also got 40% off our purchases so that was amazing, I got the set for myself and a couple bits for family for Christmas so I can't show you just in case they see this post. We also got a little goodie bag with some samples, this cute Owl Bath Sponge and Frosted Cranberry Shower Gel*.

It was such a nice event, the staff were all really friendly and offered help if we wanted to know anything. It was also nice meeting new bloggers that I had never met before and getting to chat to them.

The Body Shop Christmas products are really nice and I recommend going into to store to have a look and smell.

Real Techniques Brushes

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a good weekend. Today I've got a post on the Real Techniques brushes.
I've had these brushes for ages and I love Real Techniques brushes, there always such good quality and when I got them last year I was excited to try them.

I have the expert face brush and the blush brush. The expert face brush is a great brush for applying your liquid foundation, it makes your foundation look flawless and gives you a good and even coverage without streaks and blends into your skin really well. The bristles are sturdy but soft and dense and don't shed which I have experienced in the past with other brushes.

The blush brush is a great 2 in one brush as I use it for both applying blush to apples of my cheek but you can use it to contour with. I also know some people who use it to apply powder too. The bristles are the same as any other Real Techniques brushes soft and sturdy but the blush brush is slightly tapered so it allows precise application and this is why I sometimes contour with it. The blush brush is quite a big brush out of all the Real Techniques brushes I own but its still a great brush and blends really well.

Both brushes are £9.99 which I think is good value for money and I always think you need to spend a little more on good brushes.

What are your favourite Real Techniques brushes?

Accepting Yourself

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a good day, today I've got a personal type post on accepting yourself.
The Image Sources.

For a long time I never accepted myself, I didn't think I was thin enough or pretty enough, I was the opposite to the girls at school and people in the media. I wanted to be more like them but everything I tried it never made a difference, but the truth is I'm never going to be that stick thin beautiful model but in being myself and accepting myself, I know who I am and that I am beautiful in my own way. Don't get me wrong their will be days when I feel bad about myself but I've become more accepting of myself which is a huge step in me being happy.

As you may know I got bullied in school and because of this experience it made me think very negatively of myself and that I wasn't good enough or perfect like I needed to be. I wanted to just fit in with everyone else and be accepted but by doing it I wasn't being myself anymore. Being yourself and accepting who you are is the most important thing and if people don't accept you for who you are, don't worry about them they are not worth your time. You need to surround yourself with people that love you for who you are and positively make you feel better about yourself.

Amount of times it's been my own self thinking that is negative on myself, which makes you feel a lot worse than what people have said because you think what you think, everyone else is thinking too. I was too focused on all the flaws and things I believed needed changing about myself that a few times I think I lost who I was but after a long time, I've learnt to accept myself for who I am and I will never change for anyone, I am who I am and if people don't like it, then it is their loss not mine.

We all should just believe in ourselves and if your happy with yourself that's all that matters. I hope you all accept yourselves for who you are and if you don't learn to, were all unique and perfect in our own way and we should be different and not like everyone else.

When did you learn to accept yourself? And do you have anything you want to add about accepting yourself, then leave a comment for everyone to see.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes New Jewels

Hey Lovelies, I know it's been a while since my last post, I've been really busy and needed a bit of break, I always want to make sure I do the best blog posts for you, so having a break was the best and it made me miss it more and I'm glad to be back.
I got this eyeliner just over a year ago from a blog event, I helped organise and I nearly forgot about it, I take so many pictures that I sometimes forget what I've took pictures of.

This is my first ever Zoeva product and I had heard so many good things about their products so I was excited to try it when I received it in my goodie bag.

The shade is New Jewels which is I think is a great name and the shade is a gorgeous purple with light purple shimmer running through it, I absolutely love wearing it.

You can wear the eyeliner on your lid or on your waterline, I really like it on the lid and with a brush you can wing it out too.

The formulation is amazing it's really creamy and easy to apply and blend and then it dries in about a minute and is very long lasting and doesn't smudge, it's one of my favourite eyeliners and I really recommend it.

I always love purple shades there my favourite colour and it really brings out my blue eyes.

Have you tried any of the Zoeva Graphic Eye's Eyeliner, what do you think and what are your favourite shades?
