My Little Box

I arrived home today to a little surprise (well I did order it but I was surprised at its speedy arrival). My Little Box!! I have been so excited to receive this box and I was even more excited when I opened it. So excited that I had taken photographs and was booting up my laptop to do this post before I even realized what I was doing!

Zoeva Rose Gold Luxury Brush Set


I have had my eye on these Zoeva Rose Gold Brushes for a while. They have been doing the rounds on a lot of beauty blogs lately and I was surprised how reasonably priced they were. I love Real Techniques brushes and couldn’t imagine another brand comparing with them but these do……They are excellent quality and for £55 (plus p&p) they are a bargain! They come in a beautiful clutch bag that will be perfect for transporting them when I go away for the night.

September Wish List

Things are constantly catching my eye and I make a mental note to put that on my wish list! Most things I don’t end up purchasing but then there those odd few items that I can’t seem to forget about and that I think of as I drift off into a peaceful night sleep. So here is my September Wish List….I warn you there are a quiet a few….but then again it is my birthday month so I feel that a couple extra’s are allowed :)

Hugo Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme = £37-£65

Hugo Boss

I bought this months Cosmopolitan and there was a sample page of this. It is a beautiful scent that I immediately loved…and proceeded to rub the page all over me!! But I got a lot of compliments in work of how wonderful I smelt (they will never know! :))

Elf Eyeid Primer in Sheer = £1.95


I have read a couple of great reviews for this eyelid primer. I have noticed the past couple of times I have applied my mascara I get some transfer on my eyelid around lunchtime. So I am hoping this will fix that but i’ll keep you posted.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light = £38 


I purchased the Ambient Lighting Powder palette in April this yer and have used it every day. I can not get enough of it! I apply my Dim Light with a Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Face Brush and it applies beautifully. I haven’t hit pan on any of the trio YET! So this would  be a back up for when that sad day comes.

Illamasqua Blush in S.O.P.H.I.E = £21.50

Illamasqua - Blush

I have become a little obsessed with blush lately and seem to zero in on them in shops. This shade would be lovely for everyday, I could see it becoming part of my daily make up routine.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser = £14.75

Liz Earle

I have already gushed about this enough in my review (click here to read). I have just used the last of my Birchbox sample so this might need to be an emergency purchase!

Lush Hair Doctor Hair Mask = £6.95

Hair DoctorHair Doctor tub

I watched Miss Budget Beauty’s YouTube Relax with Me video and she used this hair mask and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this since. This may also have to be an emergency purchase on my trip into town later today :)

Zoeva Rose Gold Luxury Set = £55 


This is a bit of a cheat as I have already ordered these but I wanted to add them in as they are so pretty! I should receive them any day now so I will be sure to do a review on here shortly. I am sure I will love them!

Tiffany Hearts – Arrow Necklace = £150

Tiffany Arrow

This is my last wish list item and is a biggie!! It is expensive but hopefully with a little bit of saving and some overtime in work this will be mine one day….I’m going to sit and stare at this for a while now………

So that is my wish list, some small and some not so small! I’m sure come October I will have seen something else that has caught my eye. I hope you get everything you wish for this month! x

Makeup Revolution Haul and Swatches

After hearing a couple of beauty bloggers talk about Makeup Revolution I decided to check out what all the fuss was about! I’m generally the last to the party with most things and this is no exception. I had watched in awe as YouTube bloggers filmed hauls with mounds of products to reveal it cost them as little at £30!! This is the type of brand I am interested in. I wanted to see if the low price resulted in low quality so I logged on and made a purchase…..well several! Once I started adding things to my basket I found it difficult to click check out. I wanted to see what other bargains were available, and with lipstick from as little as £1 I was amazed at how much I could get for my money.

Hello September


Its here…..its finally here!! Hello September! My favourite month of the year. It’s the change from Summer to Autumn when its okay to pull on those Ugg boots and scarves and dust off those rolled up mittens. It is also my birthday month and a time when I love to look back on the past year. A whole year past and a whole year older! There is something special about September that fills me with excitement and the thought that soon it will be the colder months and time for festivities like Halloween, Bon Fire night and of course CHRISTMAS! I am not ashamed to be one of those people who as of today has a mental countdown to christmas and list of presents for everyone! So here is to an amazing September and the beginning of the cosy months! x


Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

I am in love with Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser! I received a sample in my May Birchbox and was really excited to use it. I decided to give it a go!

Birchbox and Glossybox – August 2014

Due to my lack of self  restraint I have a bit of an obsession with Beauty Boxes! I have subscribed to Birchbox  and Glossybox for the past 6 months now and have just recently subscribed to Love Me Beauty and YouBeauty Box! (Click here for my review of Love Me Beauty). I wanted to try all of them and then decide which I would like to keep…..the only problem now is choosing between them!! I decided to do a joint post for Birchbox and Glossybox this month to try to change things up. I also thought it would be better to just show you what I got in each box and then if I like a product I will blog about it separately. So here goes… Birchbox and Glossybox – August 2014.

Love Me Beauty Box – August 2014

My name is Faye and I am a Beauty Box addict! There I said it, the first step is admitting your problem. I love the excitement of tearing open my Beauty Box to see if it’s a good one! The down fall to this is when its a bad one…… So I don’t recognise any of the brands and I will never use this pot of gloop that resembles lip gloss. Dont get me wrong I love to try new things but most end up at the bottom of my draw rattling around or worse exploding a lava of moisturiser all over everything! I was watching a video on Miss Budget Beauty’s YouTube channel and she mentioned Love Me Beauty. I decided to give it a go and quickly realised me and Love Me Beauty were going to get on!
