Instagram Favourites

I love Instagram, it’s a brilliant way to store your favourite photos and look back in your special memories. There are so many people that I love following on Instagram because their content is so great to look at. I thought I would share with you guys who I follow on Instagram and why I think they’ll be an excellent edition to your follow list.

#1: FullerFigureFullerBust a.k.a Georgia Horne is a British pull size model, wife, fashion blogger and all round brilliant lady. Georgia posts her fashion statements as inspiration for all the fantastic plus size ladies. She’s so down to earth and I think that’s what I like most about her. Check out her Instagram here.

#2: Friends.Videos is great too! I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S so much and having short clips to watch on my phone all the time is my favourite thing. I think I’ll follow this Instagram forever and ever. Check it out here.

#3: WillMasonPhotography is a fellow Aberystwyth Student and a super talented photographer. His photos are beautiful, so gorgeous and authentic. I just love to admire how much talent he has. The wedding photos are amazing, I can’t even imagine how wonderful it feels to capture every moment of a couples special day. Look at Will’s Instagram here.

#4: Tom Fletcher 1/4 McFly band member and author is bloody great. His Instagram has so much love to it, I love looking at his pictures of the kids and his home life. It’s not something g many celebrities do and I understand that but Tom is just generally lovely to watch. He posts such cute and funny videos too! I’ll admit I’m a big McFly fan too. Check Tom’s Instagram out here.

#5: Ashley Graham is a plus size model and is famously known for her cover on Sports IllustratedSwimsuit Edition. She’s so glamorous and beautiful, my favourite bit of her instagram is that she uses her insta-story whilst working and I love to watch and have a little look into her life. She’s an inspiration to so many and I love her for that. Look at Ashley’s iInstagram here.

Let me know who you love to follow on social media, check mine out on the meantime.

BirchBox Unboxing // December 2016

The final BirchBox of 2016 has arrived and it definitely was worth  it. I assumed since it’s Christmas soon that it would have some brilliant products and I wasn’t wrong at all. It’s brilliant, in mine I got 3 makeup products, 1 skin care and 1 hair care. Literally so good, I love sharing with you guys what I get each month and this months is brilliant. Definitely worth the purchase even if you only want it for this box.

I follow BirchBox on instagram and each month they give 1 or 2 peaks at what we may have in our boxes so I already knew I would be getting the Ciate London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner. This is a full size product and is available to purchase for £15. It has a really beautiful super-black formula and feels so light. The tip of the liner is thin and detailed, leaving the most perfect and sharp flick. Really looked forward to this product and definitely can’t wait to test it out a bit more. 

Next I got the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst. This retails for £22 full sized and is a beautiful bronze colour. I swatched it on my hand and it is so creamy, the texture is softest I’ve ever felt. I think i’ll be trying this by drawing it across my lash line and smoke it out. 

Another item I was excited about was receiving a Benefit sample. I already know I love Benefit products, they never fail and I especially love the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. So when I received the Porefessional: Matte Rescue I was so pleased. I’ve already tried the original Porefessional so I’m definitely looking forward to this one too. In full size it’s priced at £21.50. 

The skincare product I received was the Amie Skincare New Leaf Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish. This is actually the most affordable product I’ve ever received in my BirchBoxes, it’s £5.95 full sized and is a cleansing treatment which aims to lift away dirt and dead skin gently. I’m not as excited to try this as the others but definitely curious to whether it works as well as other treatment’s I have.

My final product from the December BirchBox is the Percy and Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm. This product aims to boost shine, soften and protect hair. I’ll be applying this to damp, towel dried hair from root to tip to create a beautiful texture and style. This retails for £18 full sized. 

There you have it! My final BirchBox unboxing for 2016. I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I have! They’re definitely worth the money and I cant wait to test my new samples out. Let me know what you got this month.

25 Things That Make Me Happy

Happiness is different for each individual, it may be buying something expensive or simply going for a walk in the park. It’s a unique experience. For me happiness is laughing every single time I cry, not because i’m sad but because i’m so contained to the moment that I feel free. I laugh so much that I can’t help but cry and i’m okay with that, because for that single moment I have no fears, worries or anxieties. For that second i’m enjoying the life I was given and embracing it with open arms. Here is my list of 25 things that make me happy (In no particular order), let me know what makes you happy in the comments.
