Topshop Jewellery Wishlist

From bottom left clockwise: Beaded Drop Earrings,£16.50, Freedom Finer Eye Hoops £12.50, Zebra Print Bangle £10, Enamel Crystal Ring £7.50 and Real Shell Bangle Pack £15.

It sure has been a while since I last made a wishlist and this time I wanted to feature some super cute accessories from Topshop. I hardly go in Topshop and I was amazed whilst browsing online, they really have upped their game, especially in the accessories department and I would much rather buy my jewellery from here and Accessorize since it goes with me really well. I know the metals won't change colour and the material seems sturdy so here are my top five picks from the latest collection!

Think 80s, pastel colours and geometric shapes. When I first saw these it was instant attraction! Must of been the colour pink... These are so eye catching and so unique. Perfect for day or night and it would definitely finish an outfit perfectly.

As much as I love my statement jewellery, it sure is nice to wear some minimalistic pieces I am so happy that they have brought out a Freedom Finer range, this range only contains minimal pieces that are simple but still scream class. I have been wearing and loving mini hoops and huggies lately so these would make the perfect next addition to my collection. The moon is my favourite out of the trio.

Animal print is so in now and even though I steer clear from bold colours and prints, I have tried to add it into my wardrobe and accessories this season, even if it may be just a pair of flats or a pack of beaded bracelets. I am really enjoying the comeback of animal print and this monochrome zebra print bangle is just so adorable!

I just love enamel jewellery. I don't really know why but I end up collecting enamel stud earrings to enamel bangles. I love how Topshop have designed this ring. The added diamonds really breaks up the black and makes it a perfect everyday piece. Such a bargain too!

How elegant. The opalescent shell in these bangles really make this a star choice! Bangle packs are great because it contains an assortment of different styles, sizes and textures all in one and you could wear this for a wedding or even to the office. So versatile and a must to keep.

What are you liking from my wishlist?

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask Review

A hug in tube, for the skin. Literally! I heart Origins skin care simply because it actually works and this is perfect for when your skin needs some TLC and even if you have the most sensitive or the most driest skin type, this will transform your skin gradually and make it feel oh so comforted and hydrated from within.

What I also love about Origins is that they are so generous with their samples, the other day whilst browsing the GinZing range, the very chatty and friendly advisor handed me a mini Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask which happens to be one of their bestsellers! I tried it two nights in a row and let's just say I have already added it to my to buy skincare list.

What it is?
Put dry skin to bed with this ultra-rich, hydrating overnight mask. It's rich texture instantly and intensely quenches dehydrated skin and helps prevent future moisture loss. This mask is perfect for those who are seeking intense moisturization & hydration or for frequent travellers.

What is it formulated to do?
Avocado and Apricot Kernel Oils deeply and instantly quench compromised moisture reserves and help build a reservoir for tomorrow. While Japanese Seaweed helps repair skin's barrier to prevent future dehydration and signs of premature ageing. Skin awakens comfortable, refreshed, supple.

This fresh and fruity scented face mask truly is a lovely product to have in your collection and you won't regret it either. The mask is very creamy and despite being so creamy, it isn't heavy on the skin. It has no weight. It feels air light and isn't greasy in any way. This product is packed with so many skin loving ingredients and at the very moment of application you can just feel the mask working in it's magical way, no exaggeration but I really do and what is great about overnight skin treatments is that while you rest, the product gets to work. As much as I love my weekly face masks, you know, the ones you keep on for 15-25 minutes and then rinse off, I have now started looking into other skincare that you can keep on overnight as this saves so much time in the long run. Korean skincare especially, have got some overnight eye/lip masks that I really want to try but for now it's great to see that brands are starting to create products that can help us in saving time and not cut back on the amazing quality and ingredients. 

I really recommend trying this out, if you are still unsure then you can always try a sample just like I did. The sample contains enough face mask to apply for atleast 3-4 nights so you can see how well it performs. Products like this really makes you enjoy skin care just a little bit more and believe me, I look forward to using this at night! Well done Origins for creating something that works so well!

Lush Valentine's Day 2019 My Top Picks

Christmas is well and truly over but the next big holiday is Valentine's Day! I don't really believe in it but I do love the pink/red themed gifts, flowers and chocolates and the fact that everything is heart shaped.

I always look forward to Lush products when it's holiday themed and this year screams cuteness and the naughty emoji shaped bath bombs will definitely make a great gift for your other half or for yourself! I have picked five super awesome products from the collection that I think are pretty cute and well, perfect to try out first. Prices range from £3.50-£39.95!

From L to R: Love Boat Bath Bomb £4.50, Peachy Bath Bomb £3.95, Knickerbockerglorious Giftset £12.95, Love Token Bubble Bar £4.95 and American Cream Shower Gel £5.95.

Love Boat Bath Bomb
I believe this was in last year's collection and what's not to love? This brightly coloured bath bomb is definitely one show stopper. This uplifting bath bomb contains Sweet Orange, Sicilian Lemon and Rose oils to make this one very optimistic bath product, it will even leave a huge trail of glitter! For a fun bath I would definitely recommend this, a very insta worthy bath bomb too!

Peachy Bath Bomb
Isn't this SO adorable?! I just love how Lush have released a peach and a aubergine emoji shaped bath bomb this year!! This contains uplifting grapefruit oil, REAL Peach juice and Davana oil to gently cleanse and refresh. I can definitely imagine how incredible the scent must be, if you LOVE peach scented anything then go get this one. Your bath water will have swirls of pink and orange and I think this one should stay all year round!

Knickerbockerglorious Giftset
This brightly coloured package would brighten up anyone's day! This contains two products: American Cream Shower Gel and American Pie Body Conditioner. Your skin will smell good enough to eat! Imagine being wrapped in a scent of strawberries and vanilla! You'll literally smell like a milkshake! Perfect if your skin is in need of some major TLC, these products will moisturise and hydrate the skin beautifully.

Love Token Bubble Bar
OK so I had to add this in my top picks because a) it's covered in gold lustre and b) it apparently smells like homemade biscuits!! This really is such a treat that I would probably keep for myself since I am so into bakery style scents. A very comforting scent for the winter months, can this not stay in the permanent line?!? The bubble bar contains Ginger oil, Pine Needle absolute, Clove Bud oil and Guaiacwood oil. Now you can warm up someone's day, literally!

American Cream Shower Gel
This bubblegum pink shower gel is the ultimate treat and without the calories!! If you are into sweet scents, you will love this shower gel since it contains Strawberry juice, Orange juice, Vanilla absolute and Clary Sage oil. Think 50s diner... I just hope this never goes away!

Are you going to pick up anything from the Valentine's collection?

OPI Cuticle Revitalizer Oil in Honey Peach Review

Cuticle oils are something that I am using more often and it should be a must have in your beauty routine if not already. I came across these easy cuticle oil pens that came in every scent possible and I knew I had to add this into my beauty drawer.
I love peach scents so choosing this one was a no brainer, this truly is such a nice pen to have on your dresser and for using on the go. I need I might need to buy another just so that I can keep this in my purse or in my luggage.

Product description:
This unique natural revitalizing complex blend of peach extract, mango extract, calcium, safflower oil and vitamins to nourish moisturize and protect the cuticles and nails. Panthenol (vitamins B5) penetrate the nail surface and carry calcium, vitamins and nutrients to the nail matrix.

This particular oil contains all of the right vitamins to create the ultimate concoction for healthy and longer nails. I have just started using this and already I can see a huge difference to my cuticles and my nail's condition.
I have quite brittle nails so using an oil, applying the right hand cream and using a strengthener is a must for me. Nail care is so important but we sometimes do neglect it.

You just simply twist the pen, and then you apply the oil with the bristles. It's so easy to use and I never seem to waste any either which is great. I make sure to take some time out to massage my nails and cuticles daily.
In terms of scent, it isn't overpowering but more of a natural scent that really reminds me of summer! Fresh and juicy peaches, such a lovely uplifting and fruity scent. Glad I picked this one.

The oil contains some very nail loving ingredients, it contains Grapeseed oil, Amino Acids, Natural Keratin, Organic Calcium, Safflower oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Sesame oil, Vitamin B-5 and Vitamin E!! Basically food but for the nails instead, amazing that it contains 10 ingredients!!

Do you use a cuticle oil? Which one is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below!

Bonnie Choice Powder Blush in 'True Love' Review

Hi lovelies I hope you all had a lovely new year's eve. Let's bring more peace and love in 2019 and I really hope to see more bloggers supporting other bloggers, stay positive and most importantly happy! Let's kick off the new year with a brand new make-up review!

Blushers. I just cannot live without them. I wear blusher daily and I also rotate shades depending on my mood. On thing is for sure though, you will find more pink hues than any other colour. I was on the lookout for a skin brightening pink and this sweet bubblegum shade really caught my eye.

The sleek black packaging really reminds me of NARS cosmetics and this lovely little compact is great for on the go and to keep in your handbag/make-up bag. Scroll down to see the stunning pink and a swatch!

I opted for the shade 'True Love' which is such a perfect name to call this colour. Unfortunately there is no mirror but the compact feels sturdy and is easy to open/close.

This can suit any skin tone and seeing as this blusher is incredibly pigmented, you only really need a small amount to create the ultimate flush of colour that also looks natural too. The silk-like powder means you are able to blend effortlessly, which makes the formula a real winner! I have also noticed that my complexion looked alot healthier and glowy but without the need of any glitter/shimmer. This lasted for such a long time on my combination skin, the blush lasted a good 7-8 hours which is pretty remarkable. The vibrancy stays for quite some time which is why I needed to rave about this, you could touch up here and there but I honestly didn't need to.

I have been wearing this alot lately, I just cannot get enough of this particular pink! I am so happy with the formulation and longevity that I don't think I'll be switching my blusher with another one anytime soon.

What blusher shade do you opt for? Pinks? Corals? Berries?
