I Got More From the Too Faced Peaches & Cream Collection!

After trying out the setting powder and eye shadows from the Peaches & Cream collection I had to get more from the range. I have to say I am absolutely hooked and need more!!! 

I had heard that the Peach Perfect Foundation was a dupe for the Estee Lauder Double wear, but was obviously skeptical. Let me tell you there is no need to be! It is amazing, The formula is easier to work with, stays in place all day long, for over 14 hours! Plus you get 48ml in the tube, a pump cap and the packaging is just to die for as with all Too Faced products. The scent is very subtle, which I found to be pretty refreshing for the whole range, the only down side is the colour selection.

Too Faced Gingerbread Man Matte Limited Edition

I am a total Too Faced addict and when they release limited edition Melted Matte Lippies I just HAVE to get them! They are my go to lipsticks and they are completely gluten free!!! 

Give a Gingerbread Man kiss this Christmas! 

Last year they launched the limited edition Candy Cane, which was a very bright, highly pigmented fuchsia. That had a gorgeous scent of mint mocha, that was so strong when you licked your lips you got a taste of peppermint.

The Hard Parts of being a Coeliac No One tells you about!

Having been diagnosed for almost 7 years now I would like to say I am fairly well adjusted, but there are always new challenges and things that happen that really make you want to scream at the top of your lungs!

Everyone tells you it will get better and it does believe me, you get a handle on the diet, the cross contamination and all the basic rules. BUT no one tells you about all the unknowns and the obstacles people put in your way that make it that much more difficult to be safe. That is such a funny way to put it isn't it, to avoid being 'Glutened', is it safe or stay safe.

Letterbox Cake by Bakerdays and Competition*

When I was contacted by bakerdays to review one of their cakes and provide you guys with a chance to win yourselves one of your very own, how could I say no??? 

They offer a variety of sizes and sponges, including Gluten and Wheat free, perfect for me as a Coeliac. There are other options such as dairy free so I am sure that if you were in need of a specialised order they could accommodate.

Thing's I am Tired of Hearing as a 27 Something Singleton!

I am nearing 28 now and swear I am jinxed when it comes to men, you often find yourself questioning yourself and whether it is something you're doing or whether you're that much of a bad horrible person?? Answer is NO, they're just Jerks! 

That being said I am sick and tired of comments from people around me, yes I know they may mean well but seriously do you not think I am tired of hearing it all and it loses it's meaning after a while..

Here's the best one!

My Little Box X ASOS October 2017

Following last months disastrous box I was pleased with last months collaboration with ASOS. With the launch of their new make-up range My Little Box joined forces with ASOS to bring us a selection of beauty treats and lifestyle pieces created by the wonderful peeps over at ASOS. 

This month's box was swapped for a large multi-purpose pouch. I for one love the design and think it could be used for just about anything. You could even use it as a going out clutch bag, you would certainly make a statement with this piece.

Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask*

This is marketed as Amazon's No 1 best selling sleep mask. I cannot sleep without an eye mask now, and have found it difficult in the past to find ones that are actually comfortable and stay in place.

This one intrigued me as it is molded, contoured and claims to not actually touch your eyes. All while creating a blackout from any light. The carefully crafted design allow you to still be able to open and move your eyes, which is supposed to enable a better REM sleep.
