Pawsomebox August

 as you may be able too tell I am a huge fan of Pawsomebox, each and every box comes with new and exciting things for my dogs. I like that you get to try out different treats for them and the biscuit tin is always full. Juno and Bella really enjoy the soft toys that come in the box too. 
 To start of your subscription all you have to do is sign up filling in your dogs details and choose a plan that would suit you. In each box you get a different theme which is exciting because you never know until you open it. I like to open the box with my dogs to see their reaction to the products and toys. August box has some exciting bits in it and its based around the theme Fun.
 Each box contains 5-6 high quality products, products that cost over the price of what you pay a month too. The sushi treats went down well with both dogs and they soon decided to steal the box off the side and drag it to their bed. I soon saved it and moved the box out of their reach but this shows how much they really enjoy this box.

 Garfield is one of my all time favourite things from my childhood, he was a big part of things I remember about my dad so seeing this in the box made me smile. I thought to myself do I have to give this to my dogs? They soon decided it was theirs so its now in the toy box.

Juniper waiting for the box to be photographed before she could eat or play with the products. She is super beautiful so I do enjoy this treat at the end of the month, the box gets delivered between the 20th and 25th of the month. Each and every box brings something new and exciting. Head over to Pawsomebox to see what they offer.

A Personal Blog Post.

Recently life has been a rush, one I feel like I cannot keep up with. I tend to go everyday day by day, without trying to stress myself out. I care so much about things, sometimes things that really don't matter and they keep me up at night. I have been on a mission to try and change my way of thinking, so far so good I do feel more relaxed but still have some bad days. Recently all I have been wanting to do is sleep, after work I have a nap and end up waking up at midnight, on my days off I find it hard to do things. This has made me think about what I can do to improve this and to stop feeling so bad about myself. I have been making changes ones I feel proud of, yet I still have a long journey ahead of me. Below I am going to type out some new goals for myself, things I want to change over the next few months to a year. 

'What you think, you become. What you feel you attract. When you imagine, you create'

Move house:  Our house means so much to us because we work so hard for it, it has been something we have wanted for so long. We are now on the look for a new, positive house to live in, so moving is a big part of this year. A positive place to come home to after a long day, one we are happy in. We love this house but we just need a change of scenery and a positive place to be. I am excited to buy new things for our new start and to make it our own.

Join the gym: I am on the hunt to join a gym, I have been reading EmTalks blog and it is super motivating. I do want to improve myself and my body, to become healthy and happy. This is a huge step I want to take within the next few months, I really enjoy the gym too. It helps keep me positive and motivated. 

Positive attitude: I have a positive attitude to life, yet sometimes it gets blocked out by stress, tiredness, anxiety and worry. Recently we lost a good friend which was heart breaking, it spurred me on to make a better life and to never forget how life can be. I want to make time for myself to grow as a person and to make time for others to make sure they are okay too. A change in mind can work so well, so far so good.

'What consumes your mind, controls your life'

Blog: My blog means the world to me, it is something I am proud of. I have come so far in the four years I have been running it. It relaxes me and it is something I am very interested in. I want to make more time for it over the next few months, I work full time but I realise it is all about planning. Thank you for sticking around while I get used to a new routine, a job I enjoy too. 
Time: I want to get better at making time for myself, things I enjoy and my family. I tend to worry about everyone, everything before I even start to think about myself. So I need to do things I enjoy and do more of them. I love my dogs, my family and I need to remember to think about what I want sometimes. If someone upsets me I think about it for days on end just because I would hate to upset anyone. I try my best so I think I need to remember this and move forward. 

'Do more of what makes you happy'

These are just a few things that I want to work on, I love my new job and I want to be able to improve myself and they way I think. When we lost a friend it made me stay up for nights on end thinking about everything, life is precious so just working on a balance in life it will help me to improve myself.

What are you doing to improve yourself?

Bagsy- First Impressions.

 Bagsy are a British born make up brand, the result being small, perfectly designed make up that can fit in your handbag. They are easy to use for everyday make up, which I need on a daily basis when I am busy. The quality and the packaging stood out to me straight away. All the products are available to buy on FeelUnique. 
 Only the other day did I say to my mom that I needed a new make up bag, mine is looking a little tatty. The print on this stood out to me straight away, I love something with a beautiful print on that you can take with you on holiday or keep in your handbag with your essentials in. The quality of the make up bag is outstanding and it fits all these products in it well. This make up bag* is a pvc coated one, which is easy to clean and keep tidy. 
 This pencil has double the benefit, it illuminates and conceals which is fab. I have been enjoying using this product, this is the one that I tried right away after photographing it. I have been using this for a few days now and I know it is going to be in my make up bag everyday. I love products that conceal and illuminate because for my everyday make up I want it to look bright and awake. the packaging for each product is just outstanding, I am in love with this brand.

 I love how this brush is packaged, it starts off in a well packaged little box but when you open it you can keep it safe in this gorgeous mint bag. The quality of this brush is outstanding, you can use it for bronzer or blusher.  This would work so well with the bronzer to work it all over the face. 

It was the formula of the products that stood out to me straight away, i was so excited to use them for my everyday make up. The bronzer looks gorgeous and I love a good quote, it is something that I want to keep all neat and not use but I will I promise. I have heard good things about this bronzer so my first impressions defiantly was the gorgeous packaging. All of the products are available on FeelUnique and are on sale at the minute so go check them out over there soon.  Overall I am so impressed with the packaging, the quality and overall texture of each product. I think the bronzer is going to be my new favourite for my everyday make up. I will keep you updated on how I get on with them, they most likely may end up in my monthly favourites, so keep an eye out. 

overall first impressions are great, packing spot on and the quality is perfection. What do you think?

Make Up Revolution- Ultra Base Corrector.

 Make Up Revolution very quickly took over my beauty collection and all for the right reasons. I am yet to read a bad review about this brand, I have loved every single product I have tried from them. The quality for the price you pay is amazing and there is so many different products to use from, many of them work for most skin types too which is an added bonus. If you are yet to check out this brand in Superdrug or online I highly recommend you do as soon as you can. I am wanting to purchase their make up brushes soon which look amazing and for the entire set it would cost £22.
 What I love about Make Up Revolution is their packaging, it is subtle yet so effective. It looks professional, smart and classy all in one. Yet it is so affordable, this palette would set you back just £6. This palette is something I was so excited to try, it is all new to me using all the shades under my foundation to hide tiredness and other blemishes. You can possibly use all 8 shades in this palette too which is fab, the creams feel super soft to touch and apply to the skin. 

make Up Revolution £6*

In this palette you get eight creamy colour correction creams to use under your foundation. This palette helps to correct and balance all complexions by using each colour on your skin. I have been loving the pink cream to brighten my skin and the cream to cover dark circles. I can report back that I have been loving using this palette, it is all new to me but the results have been fab. It has helped me to hide when I feel over tired and it helps to brighten my skin. 

Pink- Brightens 
Lavender - neutralises yellow tones
Green - neutralises redness
Orange - neutralises blue tones 
Peach - helps to balance out slight discolouration 
White - adds natural highlight and brightens
Cream - neutralises purple & covers dark areas
Brown - balances ashiness in medium to dark skin tones

The quality and end results from this colour correct palette is amazing, I am so pleased I have been able to try it. It is easy to use and quick when you do your everyday make up, fuss free with a great end make up look. Super soft on the skin and such great quality for £6. You can apply with a brush or use your finger tips, you only need a small amount of product for it to work. I love using this to cover up the redness on my skin and some small blemishes, it is such a great product. It is easy to fit in your handbag or travel bag too without opening because the packaging is sturdy. Most of the Make up Revolution palettes come with this huge mirror inside, super handy for applying this product.

PurrfectBox July 2015.

 As you may know I am a huge fan of the Pawsome box, I have done many reviews for you on here. My dogs love the Pawsomebox and we really enjoy opening it together. I wanted to share with you the PurrfectBox, which is the cat box. This is such a fun idea that helps us to find new and exciting products for our pets. I am a huge fan of the dog version and so are my dogs. They know exactly what it means when I get the PawsomeBox in the post.
 In each box you get 5-6 high quality products which include treats and toys. In this months box there was a good mixture of products. The theme this July box is Summer which is what I love about this company. Each box is new and exciting to open, you never know what to expect each month. 
 I decided to give this box to my boyfriends moms cats, she said all the tasty treats went down well with first impressions and they really loved the cat nip filled toy. The multi vitamin paste went down well with Luna and George. Luna had a fall recently and had to have stitches so this box well and truly cheered her up. 
 Just like the pawsomeBox you get a booklet explaining all the products and facts about cats. This months talked about the sphynx cat and how to make your own frozen pet treats for Summer. 
All you have to do is add in your cat profile on the website which helps PurrfectBox to create a box to suit you. You can subscribe to a plan that best suits you and at the minute there is a 50% off your first box. Overall you get products that are worth more than you pay each month for the box and you get to treat your cat with new and exciting treats and toys. I love the pawsomeBox and we find that its such a great experience to bond with your pets. We sit together and take out each product for them to inspect.

My Make Up Bag: New In

Lately I have not been able to shop for new make up, just been using up all my other products that I have. This month I will be popping into Boots for a new foundation and bits to spruce up my make up bag. Thanks to House Of Frazer* I am able to try out two products from Mac this month. I will be creating a make up look that goes up later this week with a few products mentioned lately on my blog. I am so excited to try out a new blusher, I have been on the hunt for a new one.
The lipstick is in the well loved shade velvet teddy which from reading reviews sounds like it looks different on so many skin tones. I love the look of it, its a warm perfect shade on my lips which I will show you in a second blog post this week coming. It is a great addition to my lipstick collection, it is one you can wear for so many occasions. I have been meaning to try Well Dressed from Mac for so long, I love the texture of the blusher. Its super soft and you can build up this one on your skin. Its a great addition for a Summer look but knowing me it will be a all year favourite in my make up bag. 
I love Mac packaging its something I think about when I treat myself to make up. I love the texture of the lipsticks and they last for ages too. I am so excited to finally try a blusher from Mac, this one is a gorgeous pink with a small amount of shimmer in there. Its great for a Summer look or you can build it up for a night time look. The lipstick could be worn for so many occasions, its a beautiful shade that is popular and well know for the Kendall Jenner lip. 
Have you tried out any of these products?

Urban decay Naked 3 palette review/ Swatches.

 For so long I have wanted to try out an Urban Decay Naked palette and I can confirm it was well worth the wait. I am a huge eye shadow palette fan, I tend to end up with so many drugstore ones which still work wonders. I am just so excited to finally be able to try out the naked 3 palette thanks to House Of Frazer* I have a make up look for a festival coming this week too featuring this product and some from Mac too. . 
 First impressions for me had to be all about the packaging, I am in love with the rose gold and the type face on the front. It is everything you would want in an eye shadow palette, it feels amazing quality. I know now I will never shy away from buying an Urban Decay palette because the quality, texture of the eye shadows are incredible. 
 I have been using the shades Dust, Trick, Liar and mugshot the most. The texture of the eye shadows are so soft and highly pigmented which I love. It stays on my eyes all day which i have tested out at work. 

 I love that that it comes with a brush inside because usually with eye shadow palettes I never use the brush but this one is perfect. It helps to apply the eye shadow and the other side helps me to get some eye shadow into my crease and under the eye. The naked 2 palette comes with a brush too.

Here are some swatches from the palette as you can see there is a wide range of shades available. You get pinky tones which I thought at first may not suit me but they work so well, I blend in some darker tones towards the end and it looks fab. I like to wear the gold, pinks to work and they even work when you want to add in liquid eyeliner. Overall its a great palette that I find I can use everyday for different looks. I want to keep it as neat as possible too because I love it so much. I know this will be a firm favourite of mine for the rest of the year.

What do you think of the Naked 3 palette?
