Look in a box!

I was recently at Gatwick airport, having a little browse at the duty free make up, and came across these Mac look in a box kits. I've never seen these little kits before, and got super excited!
The box includes a lipstick, lipgloss, eye liners and eye shadows, such a brilliant idea to have everything you need in one box - and a steel at £30!
I haven't seen these anywhere else, but am desparate to get my hands on that other set they had, does anyone know where else stocks them? Or is it just Duty Free?

It's been a while...

It's been quite apparent that I have taken a very long break from blogging, this has been because of a few reasons...
Firstly, and most importantly, I become a Mrs recently, I absolutely loved organising our wedding, and spent a lot of time writing lists, making sure all the small details were just perfect and hand making a lot of the decorations. This took a lot of my time up, which if course I didn't mind at all, I loved it! And it resulted in the most perfect day ever... EVER!!!
Secondly, I started a new job this year, so a lot of my time has fine into focusing in that. 
And thirdly... I have really tried to cut down on my beauty collection, it become a little out of control, and I found myself purely purchasing items to review because that was the lastest product on the market, and that was not healthy!! 

So I'm planning on starting afresh, I'm not sure what direction my blog will take, but I have set myself a few ground rules and I intend to follow...
Number 1 - relax, I have always been very nervous about posting on my blog, I worried that if I don't post every few days my blog will become boring, but in actual fact, this results in crappy posts!
Number 2 - be a little more opening minded with posts, previously my posts have always been about beauty, but since our wedding, and recently buying a house, I feel like my blog will take a slightly different direction. 
And number 3 - have fun with it! I want to enjoy blogging again, which is why I started in the first place :)

So let's see how this goes... And see you soon with my next post!

Vaseline Spray & Go - aloe fresh

I know I'm a little bit late with this product, its been a round for a while, but to be honest I actually thought it was going to be a bit of a gimmick and wouldn't be worth the hype - but apparently I was wrong. I watched a few beauty youtubers rave about this so I thought I would give it a go.

I have heard this product labelled as the lazy-girls way of moisturising, I am actually pretty good and moisturising, I hate having dry skin so I do always find the time to treat my skin, however it is always a bore and takes forever - this is a clever little product that makes moisturising a little bit more exciting.

Its super easy to use, okay so its not quite spray and go, there is a bit of rubbing involved, but still a lot quicker than squeezing out of tube tube getting it all over the place! What I really like about this product is it drys really quickly, you aren't left with a sticky tacky feeling that you can get with a lot of other moisturisers.

I went for the aloe fresh option, it has a lovely fresh feeling and smells great, I'm really enjoying using this product and would repurchase it again, its not going to instantly transform your skin, but once its in a good state its a great way of quickly keep it up, I think this will come in very handy in the summer - Its currently on offer in Boots at the moment for £3,99.
