Pixi Beauty 

Hey Beauties,

I know its been a long damn time since I’ve posted!

Life has gone by and a lot has happened in the last few months but anywhooo..

As a beauty product junkie I am always on a hunt to find the best skincare to handle my oily T-Zone and occasional dry patches. Here are a few products I am obsessing over at the moment. .


Pixi beauty has been a craze among the youtube/blogger world especially the infamous ‘Glow Tonic’.

The first product I picked up from the Skin treats range was the ‘Glow Peel Pads’ I hovered towards this as I didnt have anything like this in my regime already. The glow peel pads contain 20% Gycolic acid and rose water to help exfoliate your skin and get rid of the dead skin cells. By getting rid of the dead skin it will leave you with a fresh glow. You can only use this once a week due to how strong it is and on a day that you don’t use glow tonic. I am loving the results at the moment (its been a few months now, using it once a week). My skin feels so much clearer and softer since using this along side what I already do.

I then went on to try the ‘Glow Mud Cleanser’ as it is clay based it is really good at cleansing out clogged pores which is what I need as I have quite an oily T-Zone. Using this every morning has really helped control the excess oils I get throughout the day. I love the texture of this and how clean and fresh it makes my skin every morning. The only down fall to using this is that it runs out quite quickly, lasted me just over a month and a half.

Last but not least I couldn’t go to the Pixi store without trying the ‘Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner’. This product has been raved about the most in the blogging/youtube world! I am happy to say that it definitely lives up to the hype. It contains 5% Gycolic acid which leaves the skin fresh and glory by gently exfoliating the skin. This bottle lasts ages! It feels really nice on this skin and makes it feel hydrated again.

If you want to know more or to purchase any of these I’ll leave the links below. .

Beauty Tip #1 | Moroccan Oil.

Hello Beauties!

Hope you’re all having a fab September so far.

So as I am just obsessed with everything beauty related (mainly hoarding beauty products and trying everything out) I do pick up some tips and tricks along the way.

Since Moroccan Oil came onto the beauty scene I have never been without a bottle (or two) sitting on my vanity. I am always changing up my hair style/colour so its not always in the best condition. I also am a slave to my GHD straighteners, I just can’t give it up. Moroccan Oil has been my saviour though. It always leaves my hair feeling moisturised and healthy looking.

I am mixed race (half black Caribbean and half Chinese) so my hair is thick and quite curly naturally. I am always on the hunt for hair products packed with oils and all that good stuff! Due to how much I dye and straighten my hair, my natural curls don’t curl like they used to. From the roots its really curly, almost frizzy and on the ends its just dead straight. *weeps*

This is where Moroccan Oil/Argan Oil comes in. . .

This bad boy is 100% Natural Argan Oil that my best friend picked up from Morocco. Its a little expensive but its worth every penny. This natural stuff doesn’t smell pleasant at all though, so you know its the real deal. Using this leaves my hair soft and healthy. I swear this is what makes my hair stay thick and grow fast too! This is deffiniately my holy grail hair product.

Tip: 

  •  Use a generous amount on dry hair and leave it over night. 
  • Wash your hair as normal in the morning (or after a few hours)
  • Use a penny sized amount on towel dried hair, leave it for 5-10 minutes before blow drying. 
  • Use a peas sized amount on dry/styled hair for a sleek, shiny finish.

If you can’t get hold of 100% Natural Argan oil, Coconut oil is just as good as a leave in just before washing. I wouldn’t recommend using this on dry hair personally as it does leave a greasy residue.

Have you tried this?

Let me know how it went for you 🙂

August Make Up Favourites!

 Hey Beauties!

Its been a very long time, I know! Apologies for being MIA on the blog, I did lose my blogging mojo but its slowly coming back now 😀

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that still came to visit the blog while I was gone.

I really really appreciate it, much love to you all!

Today I am here to share my absolute FAVES of the past month or so. I’ve been doing the same make up look almost everyday with these products, I’m obsessed! 

A little preview of a few of my make up essentials! Little pouch I bought from H&M a little while ago, this goes everywhere with me. Its mainly filled with lip products though.

(Some products in this picture have not been mentioned in the post, if you have any questions you are welcome to leave them in the comments below).

Estee Lauder Double Wear | Spiced Sand & Double Wear Concealer | 09 Medium Warm

This foundation gives me life! I rave about this to absolutely anyone that will talk make up with me. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin because of how good this is. It stays in place all day and still looks fresh after a long day. I recommend using a buffing brush to blend it in flawlessly.

If you like a bright under eye concealer this one is for you. Paired with the Double Wear foundation it is ah-mazing! I love how radiant it is under the eyes, its not to light (in colour) but still looks bright. I like to blend concealer in with a beauty blender which reduces the amount of creasing for me. Set with a finishing powder so it doesn’t crease throughout the day.

Kiko Bronzer Powder | Shade 103 Terracota

Since coming back from my holiday (way back in may) I have been desperately trying to keep the bronzed/sun kissed look going on. This bronzer is the perfect shade, not too orangey for all over bronzing. I use it around the hair line and lightly under my cheek bones (or what should be cheek bones lol) and the chin/neck area.

Kiko Highlighter | 02 Beam of Light  

If your a highlighter lover you NEED this in your make up bag! It is an amazing shade of GLOW (pinky/champagne) that every girl needs in their life. It is so pigmented and looks amazing on! All I can say is you. need. this… NOW! I have converted a few of my girls already and they have also been amazed.

Topshop Glow Stick 

This is an old gem that I fell in love with again! I use this before I use a powder highlight. It gives you an extra oomph in the glow department. I think they have discontinued this shade and sadly the name of it has rubbed off so I couldn’t even tell you what its called 😦 .. BUT Kiko do a very similar shade here. Using this on its own gives you more of a fresh dewy look which I also love when I don’t have much time to get ready.

L – Kiko Lip Liner | Mauve 504 & R – Kiko Lip Gloss Pencil | Natural Pink 08

Kiko is my make up heaven! I never leave without a new lip pencil or lipstick. Everything in there is so affordable and amazing in quality. These are my currant favourite nudes alone and together. Cannot get enough of the nude lip this season. If you haven’t tried any of the lip products you need to do so ASAP! You will not regret it I tell you.

Hope you enjoyed this post and found something new to try out! I would love to see what you’ve been loving in the month of August. Please leave your links down below for me to have a little snoop and perhaps add to my never ending wish list

*hides face*

Until next time lovelies!

Daily Skincare Routine

Hey dolls!

I am back to share my quick morning skin care routine.

I am always in a rush to get ready and out the door in an hour so this routine has never failed me. I have been following this routine for about a year now and it has kept my skin fairly clear and reduced my oily-ness. If you have oily skin I would definitely recommend the La Roche-Posay range! Even though I love trying new skin care products some of these I will always go back to.

1. Face wash | La Roche-Posay

A little goes a long way with this and it lasts for AGES! I find that it combats my oily skin as well as keeping it hydrated and clear. This is one of my holy grail products!

2. Exfoliating cleanser | Lush 


I use this exfoliating cleanser just to give my skin that extra clean feeling in the week. I love the texture of this as it leaves your skin feeling extra fresh and glowy. Occasionally (mainly during winter) I suffer from sensitive dry patches around my nose and mouth. This gets rid of the dead skin as well as giving my skin that extra moisture.

3. Toner | La Roche-Posay


It is important to use a toner after cleansing as it helps close the pores and brings your skin back to its normal pH balance. I love the cooling feeling this gives off on my skin. Although the La Roche Posay products are my fave I probably wouldn’t re-purchase this toner unless it is on offer again. I think any toner would do the same thing.

4. Eye cream | Nip and fab 


In a bid to get rid of my dark circles I purchased this to see if it really worked. I have used it for a good few months now and haven’t noticed a dramatic difference to be honest. But I love how hydrated my under eyes feel while using this. My concealer sits so much better when I use this eye cream so I never skip this step.

5. Serum | Nip and fab


If its good enough for Kylie (Jenner) its good enough for me! I use this serum underneath my moisturizer and I absolutely love it. It helps keep my skin hydrated and supple. It is also a good base before applying your make up. A little tip, if you do suffer from oily skin try treating yourself to some extra hydrating products as this could be the reason your skin produces excess oil.

6. Moisturiser | La Roche-Posay


My favourite MUST HAVE moisturiser of all time! It really does help with my oily t-zone and keep my skin clear of blemishes. A little goes a long way so the tube does last a few months. I love how light but hydrating it is on the skin. Definitely a cream I’ll be re-purchasing over and over again.

What are your favourite skin care products to use everyday?

Let me know in the comments below, I love trying new products!

London Fashion Week | #WhatIWore.

In honour of London Fashion Week I decided to show you all what I wore to my very first #LFW experience. Although we (my friend Zeineb and I) missed the show we still enjoyed our afternoon socialising with other bloggers at the Roof Top Bar overlooking the beautiful London skyline. After all the hustle and bustle we treated ourselves to a cheeky burger at GBK, it was well worth the cold walk for sure!

February Wishlist | Make-Up Edition

IMG_1212No matter how much make-up I buy there is always something new on this never ending wishlist! I thought I would show you all what I’m lusting over this month. You might want to add it to your own wishlist if you haven’t already 🙂

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation | £29.50

I have a small sample size of this and I absolutely love it! I cannot wait to get my hands on a full size.

2. Tom Ford Lipstick | £26

The packaging is just everything! Such a luxurious product I think everyone needs something from Tom Ford.

3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer | £21.50

After trying out the foundation I have high hopes for the concealer. I have heard a few good reviews so we will have to wait and see.

4. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick | £23

Another brand we all need a little something from. The colour range is amazing, this classic red is a must have!

5. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette | £49

I have heard some great reviews on this palette too. I am in need of a good high lighter too.

LINZI SHOES | #LoveLinzi SS15 Press Event

I had the pleasure of attending the #LoveLinzi SS15 Press event yesterday with the lovely Zaineb (founder of Blogging Gals)

We had love struck eyes looking at all these beautiful shoes, it was shoe heaven. Linzi’s shoes are all affordable, on trend and great quality! I have a few pairs on my wish list already, just waiting for pay day to come around.

Thanks to Zaineb, here are a few sneaky peaks at (some of) the upcoming Spring/Summer range. Some of which have already been launched in store so check out the Linzi website  to snap up a few pairs before they sell out!

My personal faves have to be the HETTI & ROSEMARY in literally every colour! They are perfect for work and casual days in the summer. I’m also loving the barely there scrappy sandals JAMI, in every colour too! You can never go wrong with the simple but statement heels, especially at such a good price.

THANK YOU to everyone at the #LoveLinzi press event, I had a great time eyeing up the beautiful shoes!

Another thank you to Zaineb for bringing me along!
