Review | Bloom & Wild

With Mother's Day looming ahead of us, I am always on the hunt for something special. Last year after doing some research online, I can upon Bloom & Wild - an online flower service. They make it simple and easy to surprise your mum or any loved one with a gift of fresh flowers, delivered straight though their letterbox.  
Bloom & Wild have designed the packing to be long and slender enough to side through any letterbox, meaning that you will never miss a delivery, however the box is strong enough to protect the delicate flowers inside. 

Bloom & Wild make the giving and receiving of flowers as easy as possible, they even have a iPhone app which allows you to order a fresh bunch of flowers in just seconds.  Once you have picked the style or bouquet you would like to send , you can then select the address and date you would like the flowers to be delivered. You can also include a personalised message within the box as a free addition to the service. 
The thing I really like about Boom & Wild is that they offer a unique subscription service. You can order a one off gift, or a subscription to weekly or monthly boxes to be delivered that start at only £40 which includes three deliveries of fresh flowers, straight through your letter box. The other great thing is that the flowers last for about 10 days, so you can enjoy them far longer than you can any shop purchased bouquet. 
If you are looking to treat yourself or someone else, I would highly recommend Bloom & Wild for a quick and hassle free way to enjoy a beautiful bouquet delivered straight to your door.

Review | L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique CC Cream Anti- Dullness

It seemed like a one point every company was bringing out with their own version of a CC Cream – I am a little bit late on bandwagon but I finally picked up the the L’Oreal Paris Nude Magigque CC Cream Anti- Dullness to give it a try. 

As the weather turned in Winter with the frosty mornings and dark evenings, I have noticed my skin is loosing that summer glow and turning dry and dull.

This Anti-dullness CC cream has added that natural glow back into my skin and has given my enough coverage to even out my skin tone but without looking cakey at all. The formula is extremely lightweight and also gives a completely natural look and with a dusting of powder on top it looks flawless and has great staying power.

I achieve this look by squeezing a small amount of the purple coloured cream onto the back on my hand – I know it sounds scary but cream turns into a skin toned colour once blended into the skin. I use my beauty blender with this product and they work beautifully together to achieve the perfect base and coverage for me.

Please let me know in the comments if there is any other CC Creams I should try – I am defiantly on the bandwagon now!

Hyde Park Winter Wonderland | 2015

Hyde Park, Winter Wonderland pops up every year and is a massive tourist attraction if you live in the South of England. When walking through the magical Winter Wonderland sign, you walk into a world of giant candy canes, a huge ferris wheel, funfair rides and a whole miniature village filled with Christmas Spirit to get you in the mood for the 25th of December. 

The place is full with stalls which makes you feel like you have landed into the heart of Switzerland, filled with christmas gift ideas, mulled wine and german beer. 
They also have nearly every kind of fairground ride imaginable, carousels to the waltzers, the dodgems to the twister, along with a number of special attractions such as the Ice Rink, Magical Kingdom, Ice Bar and Circus Show. Not forgetting everywhere you go there is festive music being played through the park. 

There are plenty of food and drink stalls around where you can relax with a hot mulled wine and donut while enjoying the live music on offer or to relax your nerves after a frightening fairground ride. There are rows upon rows of wooden tables filled with people of all ages enjoying the festive sprit and having a little dance to the great entertainment provided. 
I hope this has given you a quick overview on what you can expect if you do visit Winter Wonderland this year. For a free attraction I think this is the must go-to place if you are in the area this winter.

Review | Lush - Think Pink

Another month, another bath bomb review.

Think Pink is a classic Lush Bath Bomb – it’s a vivid pink, decorated with multi-colored hearts and it sweet, fruity cocktail of smells.

Once dropped into the bath it immediately begins to fizz, turning the water a deep pink shade. The hearts that decorate the bath bomb are slight glittery that gives a subtle shimmer to the water.

This wasn’t the most moisturizing bath bomb, however it did add a slight softness to the water and made my skin smell amazing! This bath bomb is very similar to the much-loved The Comforter as they both hold the same classic musts of any Lush product: great design, get scent and an allover feel good product.

This may not be one of the biggest bath bombs, but I think Think Pink may be one of the best.

Review | Green People

Green People is a company that specializes in organic products and cosmetics. With over 100 certified products and award-winning ranges for all of the family, Green People are one of the leading companies in the market for suffers of skin conditions. The products are packed with over 90% natural organic ingredients to help protect, nourish and balance your skin. 

I have no skin conditions myself but looking after my skin with the most natural and nourishing products is important to me. Recently I have been testing out a number of samples from Green People and I have loved using them.

Firstly the Vita Min Fix 24- Hour Cream is free from all the nasty ingredients you would normally find in your every day moister which we are often warden against using. The Vita Min Fix is designed for normal to dry skin and also holds properties for anti-ageing. Having a combination of normal to dry skin with an oily t-zone, this moisturizer was not exactly specifically designed for my skin type. However I loved this cream, on my dry skin zones it left my skin feeling soft and well moisturized.  

Next I tested out the Help at Hand cream and it was very soothing for dry or irritated skin, that I often find I suffer with when the cold winter months set in. 

The products really do live up to the claims, they are luxury quality and are a delight to use. They are a little on the expensive side but are a great investments for your skin.

Review | Soap and Glory Foam Call

If you have followed my blog for a while you will know I love Soap and Glory products. Today I have a little review on their Shower and Bath Body Wash - Foam Call. 

Firstly this product has the usual pop art effect packing and easy-to-use pump bottle, which I love and makes it so simple to use in shower.

Usually with body washes I go the sweeter scent such a Sugar Crush, however this wash has a more frutigo fragrance to it. Once I started using the body wash and bubbling it up I started to smell hints of mint in it, which unfortunately for me I don't like.

Although this isn't one of my favourite S&G products (due to the minty scent) I would still recommend it. A 500ml bottle of this was lasts me months, which is great value for money. Foam Wash cleansed my skin well but also let if feeling moisturised and smooth as well. 

Do you prefer a sweet or fruity scent when it comes to body wash?

Review | Benefit Hoola Bronzer

Benefit's Hoola Bronzer has been one raved about product in the beauty blogging world. I decided to purchase it and find out why it was so hyped about.

This bronzer is completely matte with no sign of shimmer anywhere. I actually prefer matte bronzer for daytime wear as they leave a much more natural finish. It has a slight orange undertone, which you have to be a little careful with, but is pretty much the standard brown bronzer shade.

It comes with a small contour brush, which is a nice idea and added extra but I still prefer to use my real techniques contour brush to apply this product.  I really like how this product applies it's very light yet buildable so whether you want a natural looking contour or something darker this product can achieve both looks.  

Overall, it's a great bronzer for both day and night time looks, however if it’s worth the massive hype it has received, I am not to so sure.
