Red Candy Father's Day Gift Guide

14 June 2016

So youve probably stumbled upon my blog post and are now thinking a whole gift guide centered around alcoholyour Dad must have a drinking problem (haha). But I promise thats not the case, yes, he does like a drink or two but my round up of products for this Fathers Day Gift Guide is a well-researched result influenced by the home interiors site Red Candys Ultimate Fathers Day Gift Guide decision tree. The idea behind the infographic tree is to give anyone struggling with what to get their Dad this Fathers Day a little helping hand.

My journey down the tree didn't last too long after agreeing that my Dad appreciates a bit of good banter and yes his sense of humor does greatly improve with a little tipple but admittedly when it gets back round to the dreaded Monday morning he loses all of his merriness. From these answers the decision tree assisted me in what to get him this Fathers Day - A Flask Tie!

Despite thinking that a cool and quirky gift as such as this would be a great idea, Im not too sure his boss would agree so with this in mind I took to the Red Candy website to source other quirky products available to assist my Dad with his drinking hobbies.

So if you're struggling and need a little gift buying inspo then check out the infographic here and if you decide to check out their Fathers day gift round up the lovely people at Red Candy are offering readers 10% off with the discount code: S3L81DF


Nars One Shocking Moment Blush Palette – Steven Klein

13 June 2016

There is nothing I love more than a Nars  palette, and this one is just the most perfect of them all. The One Shocking Moment  palette comes packed with every powder you’ll ever need to create endless, beautiful make up  looks.

From top left; it comes with the Paloma sculpting powders, the contour shade is perfectly matte and super easy to blend, the highlight is a light matte shade and works great with the contour. You get a large Laguna bronzer which adds just the right amount of colour to your face- without looking at all orange.

You then get four blushers, all completely different shades; Robotic which is a light natural pink, Blasphemy which is a tad brighter with a little bit more shimmer so its perfect if you want to add a little more colour to your cheeks, Luster which I love, its a peachy shimmer tone and it just looks perfect on, and finally  Dolce Vita which is a pretty bright pink with shimmer.

I love the diversity of this palette- it has a great range of blusher shades as well as a sculpting kit and huge mirror, all in one perfectly packaged palette. This is fantastic for travelling and is also perfect for anyone who wants to try some Nars products.

As with all Nars products the quality is fantastic, the powders blend in perfectly and do not sit on the skin, they’re long lasting and feel great.

What is your favourite Nars blusher?

June: A New Month

01 June 2014

So we're half way through 2014 already and its scary, where has the time gone? I never like to wish the time away but June is a month I've been looking forward to in particular. I finish second year of university at the end of the coming week so after that last assignment is handed in I can finally relax for a few months. Me and Sam are off on holiday on the 16th for two weeks and I can not wait to (attempt) to get a better tan than him and get my head stuck into a good book as I feel like I haven't been able to do that in ages, with finance and business books being an exception!  

What are you going to be up to in June, I would love to know?
