BENEFIT | IT'S POTENT.

'iya loves,




This eye cream for Benefit honestly, I wasn't expecting much. It claims to fade dark circles and help smooth fine liners for a brighter and younger appearance. I did find using this product my under eye area appeared more radiant and a lot more healthy. This eye cream is quite thick in consistency and you only need the smallest amount. This is only the sample size, I received this with an order I placed months back and it lasted me for a good couple of months. As I say a little really does goes a long way. I really would consider buying the full size. I found my foundation and concealer glided on so easily and looked flawless all day which is why it is so important to use an eye cream anyway. It's to keep that area hydrated and prevent creasing and concealer/foundation caking under there. All in all I think my next purchase shall be this one when I need a new eye cream! Have you tried this?! Find it here.

SLEEK | STORM.

'iya loves,




Sleek palettes are one of my favourites out there on the drugstore, they're so pigmented, buttery and blend like a dream. No matter what palette they come out with the quality is the same it doesn't alter at all. I can't fault them there. I own quite a few of their palettes because I think they're incredible. This one is normally one I dig out round about this time of year because of the shades in it. What I think makes this one so great is because you've got a gorgeous burgundy shade which makes such a nice change to browns and looks super nice blended into the crease. You've got two matte browns in this palette which are great crease/transition/brow colours or even all over the lid whatever you want to do with them the options are literally endless. You've got your standard matte black which is in every sleek palette which is great because a bit of black takes a normal day time look to instant night time smokey eye. You've got your standard neutral shimmery light colours for all over the lid, even a light pink and gold which let me tell you are gorgeous and are super pigmented and I do love them. What I think is more impressive in this palette though is the pigment in the darker colours. I love the darker copper brown with the reddish undertones is just gorgeous and I find it really pops on my blue eyes. There's a really nice gunmetal silver which is perfect for a nice grunge smokey eye and then a gorgeous dark green and dark blue perfect for this time of year. I'm loving the look of dark eyes this year and I'm really embracing them. This palette would be great for a wash of colour/gorgeous day time look/slight night time look/amped up glam look.. as I said the possibilities are endless. You can find it here.

LUSH | BUNCH OF CARROTS.

'iya loves,


Bit of the wrong time of year to be discussing these with you but I'm slowly digging through my LUSH stash to make way for all my new goodies that's going to be coming up in a haul very soon! I've got the tiniest amount of this left. These have lasted so long. Literally turn the water orange as to be expected not quite sure how I feel about orange bath water. They smell really good too, nothing too over powering, nothing too 'there' either if you know what I mean by that. It's not really citrus, nor fruity it's just a nice fresh scent which I like it makes a change from my ever so normal LUSH selection. If this come back around next year I definitely recommend you check them out as they're definitely worth the money!

S&G | ONE HECK OF A BLOT.

'iya loves,


I've become somewhat of a Soap & Glory addict over the past few months. I gave into the hype and picked this powder up fa couple months back. This is a great setting powder. It really sets the foundation without making it look cakey or too powdery. It's very finely milled and is not chalky. It's a lightweight powder and is perfect for use on a night out which is the first time I put this to the test. It made my face look flawless. It's become one of my favourites. We all know I have an obsession with the Rimmel stay matte powder but I wanted to branch out with powders and try something new. I'm really impressed with this. I've hit pan on this and I just know I'm going to have to stock up on get another one because I just love this so much! Find it here.

THE BODY SHOP | CAMOMILE CLEANSING BUTTER.

'iya loves,



This product I feel has done it's rounds on the blogs this year. A cleansing balm is somewhat slightly easier than a general cleanser as it's almost a 2 in 1 product. It not only cleanses your face but it removes your make up at the same time. What I do is take a little bit on my hand massage it in between my hands to warm the product up and then massage it into my face. Depending on how much face make up I'm wearing will depend when I use this. If you use it to take off your eye make up you will end up looking like a panda but it does double up as a make up remover as well. If you wish to take off your eye make up first which is sometimes what I do especially if I've got gel liner it's completely up to you, or I go in with a wipe after. It's all about finding what works for you when it comes to a cleansing balm. I like how luxurious these feel on the skin and they're super gentle. I've definitely converted into using these. I like taking this with me if I know I'm going away because I don't have to take loads of products with me. I'm now keen to try out other cleansing balms out there. This one is really lovely, and is great for my sensitive skin. You can find it here.
have you tried this product?!

ASHDOWN FOREST.

'iya loves,

So when I was younger we used to go to Ashdown Forest. We've been there a few times. If you've never heard of it or are thinking what the hell, it's basically a woods where A.A.Milne got his inspiration for the Winnie The Pooh stories. We thought the girls would absolutely love to go so we made it a fun day out for them. They've got the pooh sticks bridge there which basically whichever way the river is flowing, you drop the stick in one side run over the to the over side and see who's comes out first. The girls had literally so much fun doing this. We had all four with us as well. We had Stacey for the day and she really enjoyed playing with the other three. We walked a different way to what I remembered from going there previously. They had would looked liked to be Eeyore's house which was of course so CUTE! Further up from the bridge there was a tree with bits of paper and jars of honey. Me and Matt stood there trying to figure out what that was all about, walked round to the other side and there was a door on the other side. Winnie The Pooh's house. So cute. I was amazed, my mind was blown. Of course I got pictures. If you saw the vlog that went up you'll have seen them, but I'll leave it down below for you guys if you haven't. I'm still a massive Winnie the Pooh fan so of course I had to go in the gift shop as well. Seriously it's just full to the brim of Winnie The Pooh goodies. I got a little quote plaque, you've probably seen it in the background of some on my videos but I'll post that down below too!
