MUA Luxe

MUA Luxe AW15 Review

MUA Makeup Academy has fastly become one of my favourite make-up brands, it’s inexpensive, performs so well and has such a vast array of products and colours, that they just keep creeping back into my make-up bag. Before Christmas I met with MUA and they took me on a visit to the top of The Shard for a Q&A for their blog and share with me their latest collections, meanwhile taking in the 360 degree panorama view.

One of the collections MUA Luxe, is one you might not be so familiar with and on first look you wouldn’t be wrong for thinking it looked slightly higher end. But this is MUA Cosmetics and when I say higher end here, most things are priced under £10. I was so impressed by the Luxe range especially the liquid lips, that I thought I’d share with you my thoughts on the collection.

Fish Soho Barber Review

fish salon soho barbers review london

Fish hairdressing is an institution in Soho, opened in 1987 by founder Paul Burfoot, Paul turned an old sex shop on D’Arblay Street in the middle of Soho into what is now the Fish salon. Where does the name come from? Well when renovating Paul uncovered art deco tiles, which revealed the shop used to be in fact a fishmongers at one point and Fish was born.

From the outside, you can’t help but notice the brand blue tiles and Fish logo. The fish salon has two levels, with the upstairs being slightly smaller than downstairs, the interior is retro and there is a wall of all their products. There are also a number of hairdressing seats, a small waiting area and a slightly more open planned downstairs. The downstairs reminded me of the classic barber shops I used to go to as a kid, mirrors across the walls opposite the barber’s chairs, three sinks to have your hair washed in and iconic pictures above the mirrors of styles gone by.

Rose Quartz & Serenity Interiors

Pantone Rose Quartz Interiors

I have never been that fond of the Pantone Colour Of The Year, but this year they have picked two colours and I really love both of them. They have chosen two colours this year to blend together seamlessly and Pantone’s Colours of the Year 2016 are Rose Quartz – a warm rose tone and Serenity – a tranquil blue.

I thought I would put together some of my favourite interior and lifestyle selections from both colours to fill your home with as Pantone describes, ‘a soothing sense of order and peace.’

Which colour is your favourite?

Can The Dyson Humidifier Improve Your Beauty Sleep?

Dyson Humidifier Review

Would you consider a humidifier as a beauty gadget? I know I didn’t and so I never really felt like I needed one, that was until now. Dyson got in touch and asked me if I would like to try their latest beauty gadget, the AM10 Dyson Humidifier. I was really keen to give it a go as in the winter more specifically I suffer from really bad dehydrated/dry flaky skin, I know delightful image, on my face and also hands. It can get so bad around my eyes and my mouth, that even my make-up just won’t cover it or go on right and that with the winter blues, it’s definitely one way to get you down.

New Year, New Skin With Murad Essential-C

Murad Essential C Review | UK Beauty Blog

As you might be aware I’m a big fan of Murad skincare and so as I headed into 2016, I thought I’d try out one of Murad’s other ranges I hadn’t really dabbled with, the Essential-C. I have already tried the Essential-C eye cream which is a lovely eye cream and a great one for protecting the eyes as it has SPF. The Essential-C range is the perfect range for starting off the new year, after all the drinking and partying your skin can really get hit hard, so the range looks to brighten, replenish moisture, add radiance and protect against environmental impurities. It really is a repair range and gets your skin to its best you.

Top 5 Viewed Videos on YouTube 2015

Top Viewed YouTube Videos 2015

This year I really tried to up my YouTube game and I think it wasn’t till about April maybe that I realised the key to a YouTube channel is definitely to be consistent. I therefore started posting every week on a Sunday so everyone knew when a new video would be up. It’s definitely been challenging to try and do YouTube and the blog at the same time, for me the blog will always come first as it’s my first baby but I do love doing YouTube so much and love to share beauty, fashion and everything else in between. It seems you all love fashion hauls a-lot and even though I’m a small fish in the YouTube pond, my subscribers are now steadily increasing which gives me great encouragement to keep going with it next year.
