Validation facial - Lush Spa Cardiff

Hey All

This is another of the posts I've been meaning to write for a while, so as I'm travelling down to Cornwall I thought I would share it with you.

As soon as I heard Lush was opening a spa I was pretty excited, I love going on spa days with my mum or friends and as I love all things Lush I couldn't wait to try it out. Back in January I bought my mum a treatment for her birthday so we could go together when it was open.

Lush Metamorphosis Bath Bomb

Hey all!

Hope you're having a fabulous week - I've been off work for the last 2 weeks after a car accident but I'm feeling so much better now. I never realised how much whiplash and general impact could affect you, fingers crossed it's over now.

One thing I've been doing whilst being off is having a fair few baths (to help the aches!) so I've been working my way through my stash of new bath bombs. The first is Metamorphosis from Lush which we both picked up from their new Cardiff spa store when it opened.

Make Up Revolution Renaissance Lipsticks - Part 1

Hey all!

I've been sharing some of these photos for the last few weeks and I've no idea why it's taken me so long to share the full post.

The Make Up Revolution Renaissance lipsticks came out a little while ago and are allegedly dupes for the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. There's a full range of 20 different lip colours in the Renaissance range compared with 12 of the CT Matte Revolution lipsticks, 11 in the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. range and 17 in the Hot Lips range. I'd love to buy all of them (addicted to buying sets!) but at £24 per lipstick this isn't in my budget....ever!

So I obviously looked into the Renaissance range:

First Look: Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette

Hey all!

We've got a quick first look post for you today that we have been super excited about!

A few months ago (way back in February!) we ordered the Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft palette - we're HUGE Harry Potter fans and heard about this as soon as it was designed, so we just knew we had to get it. Especially after seeing all of the colours and swatches on their instagram account, so we couldn't let it pass us by!

If you haven't heard of Storybook Cosmetics then where have you been?! The business is owned by 3 triplets in the U.S.A., all of whom love Harry Potter and the general fandoms that exist (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Disney....etc etc). They seem like fun people to be around and you can see their enthusiasm for their products! I think there are actually 6 sisters in total so you can imagine the make up wars they must have had over borrowing and sharing their purchases! They have a fair few ideas in the pipeline so we look forward to seeing what they release next.

Festival Make Up!

Hey All

We love festival style and we've been to Glastonbury in 2014 and 2016 and just loved all the make up and hair. When we didn't get tickets this year we were gutted so we decided to have a night in at mine, play with our make up and drink cocktails and get C to take photos for us of the looks!

We love experimenting and decided this was the perfect excuse. (previous posts on hair here, top ten moments here and some makeup up from 2016 here!)

Porro Wellfield Road - Cardiff

Good morning all!

Isn't the weather glorious??? We've been so lucky this week with some real sunshine, I hope it's going to stick around.

On Tuesday we were invited to try out the new menu at Porro on Wellfield Road in Cardiff. We've previously been to their other branch in Llandaff for a different blogger event but never been to this restaurant, so we couldn't wait.

Make Up Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette

Hey All

I'm finally getting round to sharing my thoughts on products I've had for a while. Make Up Revolution is a brand I've been using for a while now since going Cruelty Free as they have amazing palettes.

Ever since seeing the ABH cream contour palette I've been wanting to try one but reluctant to spend loads of I think with these products you don't use all shades.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Range

Hey All

This is a post I've been meaning to write for a while, I first purchased items from this range almost a year ago. Prior to going Cruelty Free last year The Body Shop wasn't massively on my radar with the exception of the body butters. I've since realised I've been missing out on some amazing skincare!

Falafel Kitchen - Cardiff

Hey all!

We've mentioned a few times recently that we've both gone vegetarian - for different reasons but we both enjoy food and cooking so much that we've fully embraced it and have been trying new recipes as well as new eateries.

The next on our list was Falafel Kitchen, found on Crwys Road in Cardiff.

Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation Shade 2.0 Review

Hey All

A few months back I share my thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked Skin if you read that post (here) you'll have seen I'd picked it up in error and had meant to get the All Nighter Foundation.  It turned out a great accident as I fell in love with Naked Skin as it's such a great foundation. I was still curious about the All Nighter Foundation as it's namesake setting spray is my all time favourite so C bought it for me for Christmas.

Paul Mitchell Neon - Stand Out Style

Hey All

Last week we shared our thoughts on the Marula Oil range that you can view here. This week we're sharing another new range we were lucky to be sent to try out. As always all of these products are cruelty free but the Neon Range also adds even more!

The Neon range which is available from July has a great story behind it and when purchased supports some great anti-bullying organisations!! So not only do you get to treat yourself to some amazing products you support organisations that help people during tough times and Stand up to Bullying

Afternoon Tea at The Cavendish, London


A few weeks ago we went to London for the weekend, we managed to pack in quite a few activities in the 2 days we were there for and one of them was afternoon tea. Obviously!
