Neal's Yard Pamper Evening and trying their NEW Eye Cream

So over a week ago I went to a pamper evening hosted by Neal's Yard and boy! Did I need some me time. 
I headed down to Birmingham new street and upon arrival I was greeted and I was asked what beverage I would like to drink whilst I wait for my facial to be set up. I opted for rose water. No not the water you use on your skin ^^ but mineral water with actual rose buds. I have to admit, this tasted way better than I expected. Whilst waiting I browsed all of the Neal's Yard products and saw what skincare ranges there was to offer.
I was then asked a few questions about my skin type and what products I use regularly. My facial was then made up of five products and one being the new eye cream!
A very creamy refining cleanser was used first which took off all of my make-up and impurities, the rejuvenating toner remove any further traces of make-up and cleared my complexion in preparation for the facial. After the cleansing and toning part was completed a mattifying serum was used on my t zone to reduce shine and to minimise the appearance of pores. My favourite step included a star buy, the wild rose beauty balm. This stuff is incredible. This was applied onto my face and was kept on my skin for around 15-20 minutes. This balm smelt amazing and just like a rose garden! Once this was removed, I truly was amazed. My skin looked and felt so bright and nourished. To finish off the facial, I got to try the new eye cream. The Frankincense Intense Lift eye cream was used under my eyes, this cream has said to lift, plump, revitalise and brighten the eye area.

About the new eye cream:
Age well with our certified organic eye cream and join the women who agree their eye area is visibly lifted after using it. Scientifically formulated to target skin that’s starting to show a lack of firmness, elasticity and definition, including deep lines and wrinkles around the eyes, we’ve added a tailored Revitalise Blend of green tea caffeine, turmeric and organic green coffee seed oil to revive the eye area.

I was so happy with the outcome, The products worked really well together and went with my combination skin type very well. I know I will be looking into treating myself to these products because it really works. My top picks include, The wild rose beauty balm and the mattifying serum.  All of the products felt very lightweight and was very fast absorbing. I think with prolonged usage, my skin will look it's very best.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick* in Double Dare Review

What a show stopper! This mini Kat Von D lipstick has now become a firm favourite of mine. I received this sample thanks to the Debenhams Beauty club and it was such a great opportunity to try out this brand even more, I have tried the infamous tattoo liner but I love this even more!

Product description:
Introducing the new and reborn Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick, the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented lipstick to ever cross your lips. Discover your new go-to color from Kat Von D’s biggest, boldest shade range—40 shades, 3 finishes and never-before-seen shades made to match Everlasting Liquid Lipstick bestsellers.

Made with smooth spherical pigments and lip-nourishing ingredients, it’s never been easier to coat your lips in creamy, comfortable color.
Vegan & Cruelty Free.

I received the shade Double Dare - Semi Matte Cocoa Blush and this is such a beautiful colour to wear every day. I have found this lipstick to be intensely pigmented, the above swatch was just one swipe! It really is amazing stuff! This warm pinkey brown shade is a never fail shade and can easily suit every skin tone.
Though having a scent doesn't really bother me but this has the most incredible buttery sweet scent which I am really liking, it seems to lift my mood every time I apply it too!
The formula is very creamy yet very lightweight, so easy to wear since it doesn't feel heavy on the lips despite the intensely creamy formulation.
Although it is a long wearing lipstick, I still have to touch up a little after eating or drinking but this is the norm with stick lipsticks. I am incredibly impressed with the actual shape of the bullet as this makes it much easier to apply and get sharp, crisp lines without the use of a lip liner and to finish of this already fabulous lip product... the packaging! It's the ultimate rock glam chic captured in a beauty product. I cannot get enough of this lipstick and I know I will be purchasing a full sized one but the only problem will be what shade to choose?!

Accessorize are absolutely killin' it with their new range of pastel jewellery and lifestyle bits, I popped in store two days ago to pick up some hair bands but then I found myself oohing and ahhing at their latest offerings. I have already seen a necklace which I am going to buy and I don't know why I end up looking at the delicate and simplistic pieces first?!

Double Hibiscus Hair Clip £8
Bring tropical vibes back by adding this cute hair accessory into your everyday hairstyle. I love the colours and this really is the only time you can wear flowers in your hair.

Gold Plated Arabic Z Initial Pendant Necklace £10
I absolutely love anything arabic related and so this was a no brainer to add into my wishlist. The Z in arabic feels personal since it's the first letter in my name and the gold really compliments the diamond detailing.

Delicate Layered Pendant Necklace £10
Okay so I saw this in store and oh my god this is totally me.  The cute pastel pink beads and the delicate chain makes this such a simple but elegant piece. I have already decided to buy this as I can totally see myself wearing it everyday. LOVE.

BFF Tear and Share Lipbalms £5
This is so 90s I love how Accessorize have still got a mini BFF range because I remember buying so many things to share with my best friend when I was little. These cute heart shaped lipbalms are strawberry scented and would make a lovely gift.

Petal Beaded Pastel Earrings £12
I still do not own the on trend tassel earring and these really caught my eye!. The actual tassely bits are made out of beads which makes this accessory unique. The colours are perfect for summer and would finish any outfit up nicely.

Jody (the store owner) very kindly sent me this beautiful jewellery set and I could not believe how stunning the detailing was once I saw both of the pieces up close.

A bit about Jody and her fabulous shop
Jody has a passion for making jewellery and even whilst working a 9 to 5 job, she still enjoys and has a passion for creating cute accessories. Her shop Jewellery Fountain is the place to go to for all things adorable. From mermaid inspired accessories to nature and dainty themed jewellery.

My jewellery set came packaged in a little grey drawstring pouch and when I saw the jewellery close, I was all heart eyes! The attention to detail is amazing and for such a small price tag. The gold leaf really compliments the pastel pink and when seen in sunlight, it truly is magical.
The accessories feel so sturdy and well made, the silver parts do not cause any skin irritation and are of good quality.
