Two Parties and Today’s Makeup! 

Hey guys! How’s your Sunday? Today we had two parties to go to! The first one was a first birthday party and it was pirate themed! Of course we had to dress little Willow up so she could join in the fun! There was a bouncy castle there too! We put Willow on it and bounced her up and down which she loved but as soon as we let go of her so she could have a go by herself, she was having none of it, got all shy and wanted me or Aled to pick her up so she could cuddle into us. She much preferred chasing balloons and blowing into and empty gift wrap roll haha! Oh and eating! I think that was her fave part! 😂 Thought I’d share with you all a piccy of her in her outfit.


The second party we went to was an afternoon tea at Aled’s parents for his mum’s birthday. We all had such a lovely time! Willow thoroughly enjoyed the cake haha!

This was today’s makeup look.

I’ve used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance on my eyes. Gosh I love this palette! It’s so darn pigmented! Especially when you wet or spritz your brush! If you haven’t done it, do! It also stops fall out which,  yay! Unfortunately I didn’t have time to experiment and try something new, so this had to do.

That’s all for today, guys. Hopefully see you soon with another post! 😀 

Beauty Products I’m Excited About!

As you may know by now, I love discovering new beauty products especially if they are animal cruelty free and/or holistic. There are a few products that I have come across recently that I’m really excited to try.

Móa The Green Balm

Móa The Green Balm is a 100% natural healing balm used to soothe, nourish and renew the skin. It’s a hard-working multi-tasker, that helps nourish and hydrate dry skin, resuscitate lack-lustre locks and can be used a daily cleansing balm, to balance oily or dry skin and remove residucal make-up and grime. It can also be used to soothe bites, grazes, bruises and eczema, or as an aftercare product for tattoos and piercings. Suitable for super-sensitive skin.
This seems to be quite the all-rounder as far as beauty products go. Apparently it can also lessen the appearance of dark circles around the eyes! I’ve purchased this from Feel Unique which have an even more in-depth description of it here!

Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream

Great for dryness, sensitivity and puffiness this Eye Cream is surprisingly moisturising considering its non-greasy, lightweight texture and one tube lasts for ages. Daily Revitalising Eye Cream contains vitamin rich Sea Buckthorn, moisturising Avocado, Jojoba, Almond, Macadamia and then Marsh Mallow and Pineapple to regenerate and hydrate your eye contour area.

Speaking of eyes, I recently said in a post that I don’t use eye cream but that I probably should. After having a browse through all kinds of eye creams of varying prices, I settled on this; Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream. I’m really intrigued to know if it will help combat the puffiness that I get. It seems that no matter how much sleep I get, I can never get rid of the puffiness. So I can’t wait to see if this does the trick. Again, this is another product that I’ve purchased from Feel Unique. I recently received a £5 voucher from them so I used it to knock some of the price off so that it was a little cheaper.

Another eye cream that I wouldn’t mind trying at some point is the Yes To Grapefruit Uneven Skin Tone Dark Circle Correcting Eye Cream.

Yes To Grapefruit Uneven Skin Tone Dark Circle Correcting Eye Cream is a lightweight eye treatment that is clinically proven to help visibly diminish the appearance of dark circles in four weeks, naturally! This cream is formulated with Grapefruit, which is packed with Lycopene and fruit acids that help fade age spots and increase luminosity, Licorice Root, which calms and soothes skin inflammation and helps combat dark circles around the eyes. Have any of you tried it? I’d love to know what you think of it.

GinVera Exfoliating Marvel Gel With Green Tea

Ginvera Marvel Gel is the most popular blackhead treatment in Asia where skin quality is king. It is a very different exfoliant and extractor because there are no abrasive grains, it is gentle enough to use on sensitive, blemish-prone skin but with noticeable results after just one use. The fact that it also has anti-ageing effects means that this mask is a great answer to the all-too-common problem of adult acne.
This, I’m very excited about. Normally, I like an exfoliator to have tiny grains of some kind as that’s the only way I feel would get rid of all the dirt and grime but this stuff has me intrigued! When I get paid, I’m going to purchase it and see what it’s like.

Have you guys tried any of these products? What did you think of them?
