LUSH HALLOWEEN HAUL


I get so excited at this time of the year when Lush are starting to bring out their festive products. I have probably tried all of Lush’s bath bombs that they have ever sold and it's always exciting to try the new ones that they bring out for Halloween and Christmas. This time I only bought bath bombs as I have a ridiculous amount of shower gels and soaps at home already.

VEGAN BISCOFF CUPCAKES


I have recently got a kitchenaid mixer after wanting one for years and years, since getting it I have been baking non stop! I absolutely love using it, it's so cool! This time I made some vegan biscoff cupcakes as vegan biscoff biscuits are suitable for vegans!! I saw this recipe on Becky's blog and was inspired to veganise it! Full credit goes to her for the basic recipe I have just adjusted it slightly. I have made a YouTube video showing you how to make the cupcakes from start to finish, if you would like to watch that you can here. In this blog post I am including the full list of ingredients, measurements, recipe and some photos.

FAVOURITE AUTUMN NAIL POLISHES


Autumn is my favourite time of the year, I love everything about it, the fact that I can drink hot chocolate again and that I can wear gorgeous dark nail polishes on my nails without looking like a goth! If you know me or have followed my blog for a while, you will know that I am obsessed with nail polish, I have so many different colours I could open my own salon! So today I have picked eight of my favourite autumn nail varnish colours out of my collection to share with you all.

About 95% of my nail varnish collection is made up of Models Own and Barry M nail varnishes, this is just because I love their polishes so much! Models Own and Barry M's nail varnishes are vegan and they're both cruelty free brands and even though their polishes are super affordable, they're such good quality.

When I think of autumn I think of oranges, mustards, dark reds/purples and olive greens, so I've stuck to this colour palette when choosing these polishes. On the top row beginning at the left hand side is Barry M's polish in the shade 'paprika', this colour is such a gorgeous burnt orange/brown which screams autumn. Next to that is Models Own's 'chrome rose' which is a new colour from the chrome collection, this colour is a stunning metallic rose gold colour. Next is Barry M's polish in the shade 'vengeance is wine', this colour is a classic deep blood red from their sunset collection. After that is the gorgeous Models Own polish in the shade 'nude icing' from their icings collection. This shade is in a matte bottle which would make you think that the polish is matte but sadly its not, it is super glossy. It still is a beautiful shade when its glossy but I much prefer to put a matte topcoat over the top of this one. On the second row beginning at the left hand side is Barry M's 'plum on baby' polish, this is another classic autumn colour in a deep purple shade. After that is an unusual colour but this one has to be my favourite, it is Barry M's 'mustard', a lot of people wouldn't go for this colour but I love it, it looks so much nicer on your nails than you think it would! After that is Models Own's 'Becca's brown' which is a rich mushroom brown shade and lastly is Barry M's polish in the shade 'chilli' which is more of a burnt orange red than a blood red.

So those are my favourite nail polish colours for this autumn, I will be wearing them up until Christmas when I can whip the glitter polish out! I have got 4 different shades on my nails right now as I just couldn't decide on one! What are your favourite nail colours to wear in autumn?

MY FAVOURITE EYEBROW PRODUCTS


Eyebrows have always been a major love of mine and eyebrow products are the cosmetic I'm always changing to be able to achieve the perfect brow. I have been blessed with thick well shaped eyebrows and I like to enhance them and make them stand out on my face. I think I've finally cracked the perfect brows and I just recently posted a video to my youtube channel all about how I do my eyebrows currently, you can watch it here. I have tried so many brow products and today I wanted to show you some of my favourites which all create different looks. All but one product is from Soap and Glory but that is just coincidental, they just have so many different brow products and they're all so good!

VEGAN MARSHMALLOW CRISPY CAKES


After years of wanting one my mum and I have finally bought a kitchen aid mixer like you see on the great British bake off. In light of our incredible new piece of equipment we have been baking like crazy these past few days. I love baking and since recently turning vegan I have been experimenting with different alternative ingredients, I have a few recipes that I really want to share with you all but I'm not sure if I want to write them as a blog post or create a video for YouTube. If you could let me know what you would prefer that would be much appreciated! Today I just wanted to share with you one of my favourite quick and easy recipes for a delish vegan snack!

SUMMER HIGHLIGHTS


Its almost the end of August and in the UK we may as well kiss what little summer we've had goodbye and look forward to the next festive few months. I had a very long summer break of 4 months off from university! I've done everything from work, visit mexico, catch up with old friends, chill and watch endless amounts of Netflix, its been such a relaxing and well needed break. I have done quite a bit in these past few months and I have been able to capture those memories with my polaroid camera thanks to Ocean Loans*. Ocean Loans set up a summer polaroid project to help people showcase their summer in style and so kindly sent me a Fujifilm instax mini 8 camera to be able to capture my summer activities, so this is what I got up to!

MODELS OWN NAIL POLISH HAUL

My favourite nail polish brand has to be Models Own, they have so many colours to choose from and for the price the quality is amazing. I went along to one of their bottle shops with the intention of only buying their new ‘Polish For Tans’ collection but ended up getting easily tempted by their 6 for £20 deal and came out with 12 polishes, so this is what I bought!

NOURISH BEAUTY BOX


Since transitioning into a fully vegan diet in May I have become more aware of natural products and I'm more concerned with what I put into and on my body. I for some reason have always swayed away from natural beauty products because I always had the idea in my head that they didn't work. I don't know where this thought came from but now I know thats ridiculous! Natural products are so much better for your health and the environment then man made chemical products. I can only really think of two brands that use mostly natural ingredients in their products, Lush and The Body Shop so its always a nice to find other brands who use not only natural but organic ingredients in their products. Nourish Beauty Box* is a monthly subscription box which delivers you three full size beauty products and a limited edition tote bag every month, which are all cruelty free and use only natural, paraben free ingredients. Included in July's box was a Seraphine Botanicals kabuki brush, Prim Botanical perfume oil and Balanced Guru facial serum.

LVL LASH TREATMENT


If you saw my blog post a few weeks ago about my Hollywood eyelash extensions that I got done for my holiday you will know that I was disappointed with them as my usual beautician didn't do them. I had a different person do them and she didn't do them as dramatic as I would have liked. Anyway I got over that and came across LVL lash lift by Nouveau Lashes and gave it a try for my birthday.
