1 Year Of Deliveroo In Sheffield!

Recently I was approached by a brand who provides one of my favourite things ever, Food! Deliveroo is a food delivery service that brings you quality food from local restaurants. Its like Uber but with food. So you know its going to be good to start with. In Sheffield there is a massive amount of restaurants that work with Deliveroo and will have their delivered. I was trying out there service to celebrate their first birthday in Sheffield.

Unfortunately for me, I live outside of the delivery radius, but I work in the city centre so there wasn’t any problems getting food sent through. I have been reassured they are looking at serving more areas. Yay!

You can order from the app or the website, its really simple. You pick where you want to eat from, what you want and then what time you want it to arrive for (you can order up to a day in advance also). Easy peasy. What impressed me most was tracking the food, there nothing finer than watching your phone and seeing the food be delivered on the app. When you can’t religiously stare at your phone you get notifications of where the food is and every step in its cooking process.

I think its an amazing service and I’m forever waiting for the day my postcode gets delivered too. I will be ordering from them everyday. Its so worth it!

Moschino Fresh Couture

On my flight back from Barcelona the evil airport tricked me in to buying thing again! Doesn’t it understand that I am broke? How dare it… Anyway I can clean away the badness of this with Moschino Fresh Couture! My latest perfume purchase is disguised as a bottle of window cleaner. I can hide this away so no one will know I went shopping.

Like the name says, this is a very fresh smelling perfume with a slight fruitiness to it. It’s a really light perfume, its an amazing day time wear. Its not too heavy or strong, its subtle but lasts all day for work.

Although the whole appearance of the bottle is very much a gimmick, it’s a very cute and quirky bottle. However I did find a few things Moschino could have improved on, take notes Moschino. While looking like it has a squeeze-y spritz-y thing like cleaning products have, you need to turn the squeezer until it comes off to reveal a normal press down sprizter. That was phrased in a very Billie way, so if you don’t quite understand what I mean is that its a shame it doesnt spray from the top of the bottle.  It would have been 300 times cooler you didn’t have to take off the top to spray it.

Also the price, its like £50 for 50mls, I got it in duty free so it was a little cheaper for me, I kind of feel like its a lot to pay for a gimmick. While I have my qualms about this product, I do really enjoy how it looks and I think the fragrance is perfect for my day to day life, I shouldn’t complain really.

What do you think of this product? What is your favourite perfume.

Summer Must Haves From Lush

Last week we had sun in the UK.  We had sun, it was freaking hot. I loved it. I’m going to be showing you my favourite Lush products for the summer. I’m completely leaving out sun creams and SPF’s from this post for a couple of reasons.

1, I’m pretty much dead, I’m so pale and I don’t tan or burn.
2, I don’t much about SPF’s and I don’t want to recommend a product that I don’t fully understand.

Let’s get on with the products now I’ve got that cleared up. We’re going to go through the products in the order I would use these as well, this is so organised for me.

Yuzu and Cocoa
This shower cream smells like chocolate orange, its refreshing and it really lifts my mood.

Life’s a Beach
I like to mix a little bit of this in with Yuzu and Cocoa to exfoliate so my skin is extra smooth and soft. My biggest concern when I bought this is would it block the drain, but since using this I’ve found that because it is all natural products that it is fine, for the drains and environment. Thought I’d throw in some shade here at microbeads.

Karma Kream
Lets get real here, I hate the smell of this, I don’t know what it is. Its really heavy and strong and not summery. The reason I recommend this product for the summer is how amazing for the skin all of the ingredients are. I suffer with eczema and dry skin, its worse in the summer than any other time of the year and this product is so moisturising I couldn’t not include it. Karma Kream is my go to summer moisturiser, I use it at night before I go to bed. Its cooling for these warm nights then it works its wonders while I sleep. By morning my skin is soft and the smell has faded.

Breath of Fresh Air 
Toner is a must all year round. Breath of Fresh Air is fantastic for the summer because a quick spritz removes swear and dirt from your skin while its cooling. Its so refreshing on a warm day. I use this in the morning and before I go to sleep to clean my pores.

Aaaaaaaand thats it for my favourite summer products from Lush. What are your summer must haves?

Dear John Review

When body spray, Dear John, meets an idealistic blogger, it’s the beginning of a strong love. Over the next seven tumultuous weeks and separated by Billies increasingly busy lifestyle, they stay in touch only a couple of times a day with quick spritz. However their correspondence triggers unforeseen consequences.  I hope I can’t get done for plagiarism with this, Melania Trump, please don’t steal the summary of the film Dear John in your next speech.

IMG_1526

For £15 you too could own this amazing unisex body spray and live out a similar story like the one above. This is your typical Lush product, its a little different and its amazing. In the typical body spray bottle, this perfume is anything but typical.  This is a really earthy scent, its a little smokey and a little fruity. Its a fantastic mix. It’s also vegan and you can get this product in a naked solid form which is actually better for the environment.

What is your favourite perfume?

Kiehl’s Haul

My gorgeous friends a Kiehl’s meadowhall are my absolute favourite people, they provided goodies for my event, they keep letting me stop by for facials and sharing their amazing products with me. The Sheffield blogger girls and myself are working with thoroughly to share some of these opportunities with the local blogger community.

However this is all for the future and completely irrelevant to this post, soooooooo lets move on to my haul. Honestly there’s so much to share I don’t know where to start.

Lets start with samples!
samples

Above there is samples of there light weight creams, skin perfectors with SPF and their BB creams. Out of the products I’ve used the BB creams more than anything, when ever I’m in store or just had a facial with them I insist to use their BB cream before I leave. Its lightweight and subtle. If you have a very pink face like myself but don’t want heavy foundation, get this.

Day and night oil

Daily Reviving Concentrate and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
The Day and Night oils are two of Kiehl’s signature products, these both are really lightweight and don’t sit on your skins like most oils, they just sink straight in and get working.

Rose Artica

 

Rosa Arctica
I’ve not tried this product yet, this is in the large sample size. I’m really excited to try this out.

Line-reducing concentrate

Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate 
This light weight anti-aging cream is used for reducing wrinkles and pores. I look like a 12 year old so I’ve not really tried this yet, but I’m going to see if my mum could review it for me.

Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooove hand creams, I must have at least 10 different brands and creams upstairs. I’m excited to try this out.

IMG_1506

Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion  
See.

cleanser

Orange Flower and Lychee Body Cleanser 
So excited to try this, I adore the the Orange Flower and Lychee Perfume they do, so no doubt I will love this.

Masque

Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque 
This is so brightening, I tried it in store and my skin had this glow that it never has. It is very pricey compared to other face masks, normally Lush are my go to for face masks, but I fell in love with this the moment I tried it.

Thank you again Kiehl’s for how amazing you are. I’m so excited to review these and keep hoarding products.

Have you tried Kiehl’s? Whats your favourite product by them?

My Obsession

This isn’t going to be a long post, or even a detailed post. I’m literally just highlighting my current obsession/addiction. You all are aware that I have a shopping problem. I always have, I probably always will.
This addiction has become tsum what of a problem.

I am addicted/obsessed/in love with Disney Tsum Tsums.

957_cp_tsum_tsum_disney_06102015

So far I only have thirteen, but these are all that are on my birthday wish list. It all started when my ex bought me a couple last year for my birthday. He bought me Stitch for my birthday.

IMG_1287

When I passed my driving test last August I then got Winnie and Donald.

IMG_1284

In the last few months I’ve found myself them more and more. Now I’ve got a cute little pyramid of tsums. I’ve vowed to keep buying them until I have the full little mermaid collection.

IMG_1280

Ariel, Triton, Eric, Sebastian. You will be mine and until then I will just keep collecting and hoarding from other collections.

Do you collect Tsum Tsums? Do you like posts like this? Who is your favourite Disney character?

Nina L’Eau Nina Ricci perfume

Throwback to Amsterdam really quick, when I was in the airport for my return flight I were determined to buy a perfume. I must have spent 20 minutes smelling everything in the store until I found the one. I bought the Nina L’Eau  by Nina Ricci perfume, which I have decided to make my smell of summer.

486

While costing £37 for a 50 ml bottle, a little will go a long way. This scent to Nina is very long lasting and sweet. It’s a very soft sweet smell though, some sweet perfumes make me sneeze, but this is perfectly balanced. If I was a more poetic writer I would say its light, sweet and romantic. When I say long lasting, I mean long lasting, I spritz a little on in the morning and I still catch a whiff of it in the evening.

488

The packaging is truly adorable. The bottle is a cute little apple, that is slightly tinted pink. The detailing is subtle and gorgeous. Nina is by far the prettiest perfume I have ever owned.

490

I am massively obsessed with the perfume, I am proud to say this will be the scent of my summer maybe even of the year. I have been completely blown away by this product, I will be definitely re-buying this when it runs out.

What perfume are you wearing/loving right now? Would you like more posts like this?
