The other day, I was taking a walk through Selfridges with my friend Vanessa and I was blind sighted by this NAILSINC Sparkle Like A Unicorn nail polish duo. We both were!!
Specially because they came at the usual price of a single NAILSINC nail polish. So a 2 for 1 unicorn duo polish = something I could never pass up!

The SUGAR SKULL Case

A few weeks ago I was sent this beautiful leather case and three stickers by PrintWorks and, if you follow me on instagram, you'd seen I've shown this 2-3 times before.

Today I’m here to talk to you about a Portuguese brand: IGNAE.

A while back, I published a video about my depression story and my anxiety issues. It's something I still struggle with daily and I actually am taking a break on YouTube due to it.

If you follow me on instagram, you probably know I've been OBSESSED with cacti!

Throughout my whole life, I never really "connected" with plants or flowers... In a way that I find them cute but not worth the effort! (You do know I'm hella lazy, right?)
But my mum was always collecting cacti and I guess I just caught the

You guys know I've been obsessed with Korean Beauty lately, right?
And one of the brands I had the pleasure of working with was J.One and they sent me a few of their products, including these two packs (aka masks).

Very simply, they're two gel face masks that will leave you skin super plump, hydrated and glowy.

Zoeva is just one of those brands... They're always releasing new stuff and it doesn't ever get old (like, for example, the Naked palettes which have found themselves in a rut).

This Clarins Contouring Face Palette* landed on my doorstep about two months ago (was it that long ago!?) and I'm finally reviewing it.

So I'm going to make it simple for you guys!
