Today is a little different from what I had originally planned! Today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day meaning this post should have been a recipe for youu but unfortunately, I just haven’t had the time to bake some cakes. Meaning a different post on the agenda, today I am going to share with you Love Lily, a fragrance from Accessorize. When I received the email asking me if I wanted to review Love Lily, I jumped at the opportunity because I adore perfumes!
I only ever thought Accessorize sold bags and jewellery as their name implies, so I was actually quite surprised when I heard about Love Lily but at the same time, it made me quite excited to try the fragrance. Accessorize describes Love Lily on their website as sweet and vibrant, which I definitely agree with! This is very much a Spring/Summer fragrance, this may be the wrong time to have this type of fragrance as it doesn’t reflect this season.
I know what you’re all thinking, Christmas! But it’s only October, well I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s seen all the Christmas cards, chocolate, presents already in the shops! I think we’re all starting to celebrate Christmas a little earlier, instead of it being after Halloween, everything starts appearing in September. As you can already tell by the heading, I’m going to be showing you some of the products you can get your hands on from MAD Beauty this Christmas.
I received a very good selection of just some of the products you can put on your Christmas wishlist, from Bon Bon Bath Fizzers from their Modern Christmas collection to a Hand Care Set in the scent Cranberry, three cute little Lip Balms and latest Rose Bath Petals from their Disney Beauty & the Beast Collection. When I opened the parcel, it felt a lot like Christmas! The packaging all screams Christmas, it felt like a little early for this parcel though.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always celebrated Christmas after my Birthday on 25 November. It just makes sense, to be honest. The Bath Petals were a little random to receive with the other products but at the same time, I was excited to have received them. Before I get into the Christmas Haul, I want to chat a little about MAD Beauty, they are the leader in design led cosmetics for both the gift and professional sectors. With them all working tirelessly to provide a wide range of novel, fun and interesting products.
Enough chit chat! Let’s get started with the little Christmas Haul, shall we?

I find that a lot of people feel my hair is straight, whereas myself I find it to be very fluffy! I don’t like not blow drying my hair, as it’s quite long so for it to naturally dry, it seems to take forever. The day after my hair is very fluffy and this is what I hate about my hair! But this is where hair straightener comes in, I don’t always straighten my hair as I don’t seem to have the time. I’ve been using the same Babyliss straighteners since I was in school, so it was time to invest in a new pair. I recently received the xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener to review here on An Ocean Glimmer.
I was a little unsure at first as I’ve never heard of the brand before, so I didn’t know if they would be any good! I’m not sure about you but I always buy from brands that I know I can trust, as I said my previous hair straighteners were Babyliss and my hairdryer is from TRESemme. I looked up the brand after putting my order through and it seems like a lot of bloggers are speaking very good things about xtava! Which meant I was looking forward to getting my hairs on my xtava straighteners.
Do you hate your unwanted hair? Want an easier removal tool without spending hours? Well, I think I have found something! The HOLLYWOOD BROWZER is the perfect beauty tool to get rid of unwanted hair. I’ve been struggling recently with unwanted hair on my upper lip and chin, I am not a massive fan of shaving and with my acne, I struggle to successfully get rid of my hair.
So I’ve been looking for something to help remove my hair, this is where I came across HOLLYWOOD BROWZER. I’ve been using the tool for just under two weeks now and I can say that I am in love with it! I didn’t think I could find a tool that could easily remove my hair. It’s just soo quick to use, of course, once you have worked out how to correctly use it.
I am a massive sucker for perfumes, whenever I’m out and about, they’ll be some kind of fruity smell around me. I can never leave the house without having some kind of perfume on me, so when Nic Mastenbroek approached me asking if I would love to try Firedance I jumped at the chance! Firedance is the fourth perfume created by Ruth Mastenbroek, mother of Nic and a niche perfumer from England.
Her love for perfume began when she worked in the fragrance department at Selfridges, she has now been composing perfumes for 40years. Each of her creations she seeks perfection, her perfumes are all masterpieces, with them taking 2-3 years to craft. Through her perfumes, she wants to tell stories about life, stories of freedom, love, discovery and celebration.
I am always on the lookout for new beauty products so when Faith in Nature contacted me and asked if I wanted to review some of their products, I jumped at the chance! Let me tell you a little bit about the company, Faith in Nature began over 40 years ago in Scotland when founder Rivka Rose moved from New York City. Her vision was to create an affordable beauty and skin care range for everyone to use from natural, vegetable sources which were animal-cruelty free and environmentally friendly.
Faith in Nature is now an award-winning brand that produces over 200 products including hair care, skin care, baby care and natural home care. It was a very tricky decision to chose the products I wanted to try. There’s a big range of different fragrances, including Aloe Vera, Chocolate, Coconut, Lavender, Pomegranate and the one I chose Watermelon! You can decide to either have a 400ml or 740ml in selected fragrances which is perfect if you adore the scent, it will last you that little bit longer.
I have got some very exciting news to share with you guys today, I was approached by the lovely Charlotte Allister to become an ambassador for Your Beauty Club! I know you are probably thinking what is Your Beauty Club, well it’s the ultimate subscription free, no P&P beauty club in the United Kingdom, bringing you the best deals, samples, competitions and offers from the brands you love!
I am no means a girly girl, I am not one to be wearing makeup and I do not have a fashion sense! But when it comes to my nails, I absolutely adore them! For the past couple of months, I’ve been getting my nails professionally done because why not, my nails are my life and when I break one, well a little part of me breaks along with it.
Through my love of my nails, comes my Nail Polish Collection, it is no means done yet either! I thought I would show you the variety of polishes I have and you may just seem a theme running throughout, let me know in the comments if you do. I am still on the look out for polishes and if I do see pretty colours, I will pick them up! Especially if they are on offer in Superdrug.
There is that one thing that we all need that makes us less miserable! That would be sleep, I know if I don’t have a good nights sleep, you don’t want to mess with me in the morning. For me, I do find it hard to get to sleep, so there are a couple of things I do to help me wind down and relax for the evening.
At the moment I am pretty stressed with the move, so I thought now would be a great opportunity to share with you my Bedtime Beauty Routine! The easiest way I felt to share with you my routine, would be to go through step by step my evening. Let’s begin with;
Recently I’ve become addicted to browsing around The Body Shop and looking at all their different products, they have soo much on offer for different people with all kinds of skin conditions. It’s stretched so far that even the partner has fallen in love with their Body Butter and is always smelling of a different fruit!
I thought I would share with you today why exactly I love The Body Shop, so without further ado let’s begin.
