Have you heard of Younique? Hypoallegenic and cruelty free make up

A few weeks ago I signed up as a presenter for a new cosmetics company that just hit the UK from the USA called Younique
Since launching on November 1st, sales have hit a whopping £215k!!!!
I wanted to share with you all a few products that are available as I 
think they are some of the best I've used for a while.

You may have heard of their Moodstruck 3D Fibre Lash Mascara?? If not then let me tell you all about it! It comes in a gorgeous glasses like case, there's two tubes, a transplanting gel which you apply for the fibres to attach to, the other is the fibres themselves. You can see how it's applied HERE!



Younique also offer lots of other cosmetics such as lip pencils, eye pigments, blushers, mineral concealers, bb creamsfoundations and a wide range of skincare too! 

If you are interested in purchasing you can do so HERE. Younique also offer a 14 Love it guarantee meaning if you don't like the products you can get your money back!! 

Look out for some more blog posts of me showing you each of the products in detail and doing a few looks with them too!

Two New Favourites

My cameras been playing up so I'm really sorry about the lack of quality of these photos as I've taken them on my iPad but I wanted to get a post written up! 

These two beauties are new additions to my ever growing lipstick collection and ever since I've bought them I can't leave them alone. 

One is by Seventeen it's called Make An Entrance and is a gorgeous pinky red. I'm not one of a red lip but I thought I'd give it a try and I've fallen in love with it. If you told me a year ago I would be wearing some kind of red lipstick I'd have laughed in ya face! 

                       

The second is a lipstick from Kate Moss's collection from Rimmel, I love the colour ranges in this collection, there is definitely a colour for everyone. They are long lasting and really good quality for their price! 
        
                                       

I definitely don't think these will be leaving my make up bag anytime soon, I am well and truly in love!

                                     

Have you tried any shades from these collections? 



                                        

Beauty Christmas Advent Calenders 2014


Where have I been? I know that's the first thing you thought when you saw my name come up on your feed, well I needed a little break. 
I had a lot going on with changing jobs, I've started college and generally just had a lot of things going on. 
I still keep up with my favourite blogs so I'm still about it's just you can't see me! ;)

Anyway, Christmas is becoming my favourite time of the year as I got older, for a few years I hated it, but I've started to find so much love for it now. As a child there was nothing like coming home from school and finding your advent calender sat on the kitchen side waiting for you. Although I love chocolate now I'm an adult the novelty has worn off and I can now have chocolate when I want it so tend to devour the whole thing, but it was fun whilst it lasted.

For any girlie make up/skincare/nail polish eccentric, a beauty advent calender is right up your street, or even just a little gift for a lady in your life to put a smile back on their faces.
I've found a range of calenders that will suit ladies of all ages and beauty loves. I'm really hoping to get my hands on a few but I know they will all sell out so quickly as they have done on previous years but I'm going to try my best to bag one!

First up is Benefit, yup you guessed it, sold out everywhere already! Although saying that I'm not surprised. It has lots of make up and skincare samples of their products for you to try out. The calender retails at £60 so an absolute bargain in my eyes, hopefully they will restock soon and I'll be one of those lucky people to own one!

The second calender that I would love to get my hands on but is well out of my budget is this gorgeous one from Jo Malone, it retails at a whopping £250 but her scents are so beautiful I'm sure it would be worth it, Matt if your reading this, I love you! ;)

The two calenders that I am struggling to choose from to get are ones from the Body Shop and also No7 from Boots. There two are much more affordable for my budget with the Body Shop one costing £50 and has lots of samples of their favourite products. The No7 calender is £35 which I think is really affordable, if you pop over to the Boots website you can sign up for an email when they are available so you don't miss out!

Guest Post: Anoushka Loves

Hello everyone, I’m Anoushka from Anoushka Loves and I’m guest posting for the lovely Nicola 

whilst she’s away. I thought I would share with you a piece of jewellery that I have been receiving 

tons of compliments for. 

For those people who follow me, you’ll know that my full time career is being an air hostess and 

have been doing this job for the last decade. I have quite strict guidelines in what jewellery is worn 

for work so as I am only allowed a certain style of earrings, I like to treat myself to some that I know 

will stay in good condition and that won’t look out of place whilst wearing them outside work. The 

DKNY steel stud earrings are perfect for both in and out of work.



I picked these up from Harvey Nicholls but they don’t seem to show them online, however I have 

found them in H Samuel for just £30, which is £5 cheaper than what I paid for them. The earrings 

come in a dust bag and presentation box for safe keeping so they also make an ideal present. The 

earrings themselves are made from stainless steel and sterling silver with a beautiful twinkling 

crystal stone set well into the setting. They are quite small, however they don’t look too delicate 

looking. I think they look elegant and sophisticated, and also quite secure in my ears. 



On the odd times that I fall asleep whilst wearing them, they don’t cause disruption and I cannot feel 

them whilst in bed or feel them enough to cause any pain. Over the last 6 months that I have had 

them, the material of the earrings hasn’t dulled or the sparkle from the crystal hasn’t dampened. 

The quality of these DKNY earrings is of such a high standard, I will be definitely be purchasing 

jewellery from their range in the future. 




I hope you liked my post, and with Christmas coming up these DKNY earring would make a perfect 

present for a friend, relative or loved one. I would definitely love to receive something from the 

DKNY jewellery range! Don’t forget to check out my blog Anoushka Loves for the latest beauty, 

fashion and lifestyle posts.
