Anastasia Beverly Hill Glow Kits Swatches and Reviews

Hello you beauties,

I hope your all well and in good health. So today I wanted to talk about these incredible Glow Kits by Anastasia Beverly Hills. I am fortunate to now own all three of the kits. I have stayed up at night, set alarms, had dreams,  woken up and placed orders at 2a.m. These metallic powders have me under their spell. 

My first one was The Gleam, my uncle kindly bought it over from America for me. I did hound him endlessly and didn't really leave him much choice, I just had to have them as soon as I saw them. I haven't been disappointed, from the packaging right down to the pigmentation of the high lighters it is perfection. I don't know how I did my makeup without them. I wear this under my eyes above the cheeks, on my nose and basically anywhere I want a glow. 

The other two I purchased from Cult Beauty and they are also available on Beauty Bay

The Gleam Kit

Hard Candy – Mood-changing golden peach with a pink pearl reflective finish
Starburst – Rush of cool pink with an iridescent finish
Mimosa – Radiant golden peach with a metallic finish
Crushed Pearl – Glimmering pink and silver with a crystalized chrome finish
That Glow
Sunburst – Bright, luminous gold with a metallic finish
Bubbly – Rose champagne with a pearlescent finish
Golden Bronze – Sultry, warm bronze with a gold-flecked finish
Dripping in Gold – Lavish gold with a vivid, reflective finish
Bronzed – Amber with a penny metal finish
Tourmaline – Warm taupe with a rose gold finish
Summer – Luminous sand with a white gold finish
Moonstone – Radiant quartz with a pearl finish

The pans on these palettes are quite large and do last a while, due to the fact that they are highly pigmented as seen in my swatches above. I believe these palettes are priced correctly for the amount and quality of product one gets.

I have fallen for the luminous look, and seriously cannot go back to not having "that glow though"

So my beauties which one do you like best? Gleam, That Glow or Sundipped?

Bloggers Ball 2016

Hello  you beauties,

I hope your all well and had a fantastic weekend. On Saturday I attended the Bloggers Ball 2016 organised by the beautiful Scarlett London,  I have never been before so really didn't know what to expect. I was invited by beauty blogger friends Annie from musings of a makeup junkie and Aisha from lipsticks and daydreams, I just want to thank them both as the day was amazing.  
I arrived at Dstrkt club and have to admit I was mind blown away by the decor, stands and the buzzing atmosphere. The place was filled with positive energy and everyone had a smile on their face. Scarlett, hats off it was so well organsied and looked divine.

I went to each stand and was able to have a converstion with the people behind the product, which I  loved as they were all passionate about their products and obliged us all by answering our questions. Industry experts told us about our skin types and what we should do, to look after our skin. I was very impressed by the calibar and professionism of all the exhibitors. They were very genourous with the products too and we came away with full size products to try and review.

The Goody Bags

It was a great event to network and discover new brands. I met some very inspiring people and will be doing a separate post about them. There is a bloggers festival in September and I highly recommend it to all bloggers. I had a tremendous time socializing, networking and making new friends. So below are a few pictures of the day.



 I also met  two other bloggers through Annie and Aisha, Jamie from Tanned Beauty Addict and Vicki from Beauty Breaks With Vicky  I am already looking forward to our next meetup with all these gorgeous beauties. All these ladies I credit with the pictures above, thank you for sharing and bring on the Bloggers Festival super excited.

Over the next few weeks I will be doing reviews and posts on the products so do come back and have a read. Till then stay beautiful inside and out x

My visit to The Dollhouse Dubai

Hello you beauties!

I hope your all well and happy. So a few weeks ago whilst on holiday in Dubai, I booked into The Dollhouse salon. It is a full service salon, owned by the very beautiful Mona Kattan and Basma Al Fahim. They have a huge social media presence, I have followed Dollhouse on Instagram and have desired for a long time to have my nails done from them.

★Mona Monica Kattan★

So I emailed the team from the UK and got a very speedy response, they asked me which service I would like to book in for and from just the emails I felt valued a bit like a VIP. They were very helpful and friendly. I was now super excited to go and kept going on line to get inspiration for the nails I would like.

The day finally arrived, I woke up at the beautiful Al Qasr hotel, had yummy breakfast, left Mimi and the hubby at the pool and made my way to The Dollhouse. I had a private taxi booked to ferry me, well the driver didn't know Dubai too well and kept getting lost. I was getting frustrated as he was delaying me, so I rang Dollhouse. They were so calming and gave clear and concise directions, however he got lost again. By now I was really stressed and agitated. Rang Dollhouse again, they spoke to the driver and finally the ball dropped and we arrived at The Dollhouse. The staff I must say at Dollhouse had already made quite an impression on me just via emails and phones.
As I walked from the car park towards the Dubai Ladies Clubs building, I felt elated, I was finally going to THE DOLLHOUSE. As I stepped out of the heat into the refuge of the cool building I was super excited like a child on Christmas morning. When I walked up and saw The Dollhouse sign lit in pink I was like wow I am here yay. I was busy snapping and taking pics as I wanted to document it all.

I was promptly greeted by my name and taken over to the pedicure chair. From the pictures i had imagined Dollhouse to be a very big space, in real life it was more quaint and cosy. The decor is beautifully opulent and the atmosphere felt soothing, calming and very friendly. I was a bit apprehensive about the pedicure chairs, as they are tub chairs and I feared they may not be comfortable. To my surprise they were very agreeable with my bad back. I was asked if I would like a drink, I asked for a black tea but I was given a black coffee, easy mistake that was rectified immediately.

So lets get down to the treatments, I was booked in for a paraffin foot pedicure and a nails. They have individual heated paraffin bags, which is so much more hygienic method then the traditional double dipping, as it used only once per client. The lady doing my manicure suggested I have it on my hands too, I had been suffering form dry skin so thought yes why not. After the treatments my hands and feet felt brand new, I felt delighted at the results.The pedicure and manicure commenced, I even had my eyebrows done. Ar one point I had four members of staff attending me. I felt like royalty, it was all so incredible. My bling nails were done to perfection, they are still going strong after 3 weeks. Once all the treatments had been done I finally got to place my hands on the dollhouse paper! I was beyond excited and took a zillion pictures with my hand on the paper.

I would just like to say Dubai is renowned for her service levels, hence the reason my husband and I return there time and time again, The Dollhouse ladies surpassed that from the very first email.  If you ever visit Dubai you simply have to drop by The Dollhouse, it should be a landmark like the Burj a must see. 

Do you like my bling nails?

Flat Tummy Tea

Good Evening you beauties,

Today I will like to tell you about a product called Flat Tummy Tea, to be perfectly honest with you it is an incredible product. I have suffered with severe bloating since I gave birth, nearly six years ago. My weight has gone up and down but the bloat has been consistent, some days people asking me if I am pregnant and FYI I am not. 

So I started drinking this yummy tea and I have seen a big difference, I can actually wear a vest and jeans and not have to worry about a muffin top. People have actually commented that I have lost weight, and I have dropped a couple of pounds not a substantial amount. It is down to my stomach not bloating and making me feel and look blah.  I feel so much more confident and therefore I am happier.  I have even gone and purchased new clothes, any excuse hey. I do eat sensibly and exercise too, however first time I have beaten the bloat! 

You will get two packets one called Activate and the other called Cleanse. The Activate tea you drink every morning with breakfast, super easy you put one tea spoon of the the tea into a strainer, infuse in one cup of hot water for seven to eight minutes, remove tea strainer and drink. The Cleanse tea for week 1 you drink every other evening before bed, after that every third evening. Same as before but only infuse for five to six minutes. I love the aroma of the tea it so soothing and fresh.

Over the next two days Flat Tea Tummy are having a summer sale! So head on over, get 20 percent off and say goodbye to bloating. Happy Shopping you beauties x

Do keep me updated on your progress and what you think of the tea please.
