Last week I did a February Favourites post and I included the New Benefit Roller Lash Mascara but I also had my reason for disliking it.
Now that I have had a little more time with it I may have pre judged it because I actually love it more than I originally did, it had become my go to mascara over the past week.
I have had an extremely busy week working every single day and while doing my morning make-up routine I have found that each and everyday, I have had three mascaras laying in front of me but I always went out of my way to look for this one and I think it's because it's so easy to remove and makes my make-up removal routine that much easier.

I generally use Estee Lauder Double Wear mascara, Loreal Paris Double extension waterproof mascara or Clinique High Impact mascara and as much as I love all three of these they are not the easiest to remove and I know I said I didn't see any improvements in the length department in my Feb Favourites post, I'm starting to think I was just having an (i'm going to be judgemental day) because over the past week I noticed it made my lashes a lot longer and held the curl through out the day and I didn't need to pre curl them or use a primer.

I think this mascara is pretty good and I will definitely be purchasing it, i've not tried many Benefit products but after trying this and actually giving it a fair amount of time it is worth buying as it makes life so much easier when it comes to make-up removal I have paid a lot more than £19.50 for a mascara so to me that is nothing, especially thinking about how much I generally spend on my face on a monthly basis.

Have you tried Roller Lash yet, what are your thoughts on it? I hope my thoughts have helped if anyone is thinking about getting it.

Until next time xx

I've not actually done a favourites post before so I figured February was the perfect month to start as there are quite a few products i've fallen in love with this month.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter has to be my favourite body moisturiser its extremely moisturising leaves my skin feeling super soft and it smells amazing, I personally think it smells like coconut others may disagree but either way I love it it's my go to body moisturiser when it's cold and my skin is dry and in need of a little love.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream I love this face moisturiser because it's so hydrating and while its cold my face gets really dry and this helps to keep that dryness at bay, I love using it just before bed and I always wake up with my skin feeling super soft each morning.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara this was a freebie with the March edition of Elle magazine and even though i've had a love/hate relationship with this mascara I thought I'd add it to my favourites, what I liked about it was how easy it was to remove, it didn't make my lashes clumpy or crispy and it did indeed curl and add volume them so it does what the package says. But what I didn't like was the fact that it is also suppose to be lengthening and I didn't see much improvement in that department, but because it didn't make my lashes crispy I was able to layer it on which I really liked so it may well be a mascara I do purchase in the near future.

Burt's Bees Replenishing LipBalm with Pomegranate Oil Im a lipbalm fanatic so when I find a 100% natural lipbalm that works for me I'm really happy and this one definitely works, It smells yummy and stops my lips peeling which they often do when its cold.

Sephora Eyeshadow Pallet 4 I pretty much use this pallet for everything, Eyeliner, Eyebrows, Contouring and of course as an eyeshadow, nude pallets are a must for everyones make up kit and I like this one so much because its not to big so it fits in my bag and I can take it with me. Also because it was part of a prezzie from my boyfriend when he came back from holiday and in London we don't have a Sephora. 

Lancome Advanced Genifique has become a part of my skincare routine and I like it because I actually feel like its doing something I skin feels firmer and more hydrated since i've started using it and because its such a simple step it doesn't feel like a chore or an added part of my routine the bottle is also self loading so you get the perfect amount each time which is so handy.

Lush Dirty Shower Gel has become one of my favourite shower gels because I am not a morning person but the smell of this Shower gel wakes me up in the morning it smells like spearmint and is so refreshing it wakes me up.

Illamasqua Translucent Loose Powder has been my go to finishing powder recently, I have a few that I like but I think this one will always be my first love because it doesn't change the colour of my foundation in any way where as other powders that are coloured darken my foundation or make me go a redish colour which I don't like. 

Illamasqua Blush Up Brush Is my favourite make up tool this month it makes applying blush and contouring so easy and because its so soft I figured I'd try using it to apply my foundation and it gave me a flawless finish I was so impressed, because it has sharp edges i found that it applied my foundation so much better than a stippling brush or a foundation brush.

What are some of your favourite products this month?

Until next time xx

Nowadays there are a lot of online shopping companies giving you the ability to buy every and anything without you needing to leave the comfort of your own home or bed for that matter. (Yes I do online shopping in bed its the best place for it) But I haven't found many companies that are as reasonably priced as Tennerstore, from the name i'm pretty certain you can get the gist of what this company is about they sell clothes, shoes, and accessories for £10 and under and yes that is everything which is what amazed me the most.

on my visit to the Tennerstore HQ I was able to browse the website, which I do anyway on a regular basis but I also got to choose a few items for myself so I chose a few pieces that I thought would be good for the new year.

Firstly I chose this mustard little girl jumper because it is still extremely chilly so knitwear is needed and I went for this colour because it went well with my complexion and keeps me away from those dark colours I tent to reach for when it's cold and the little girl just gave it a really cute vintage feel to it that I loved.

I also got this Daisy print dress, which I think will be really nice for the Spring, when it decides to grace us with it's presence. It caught my eye on the website because it's a pretty simple dress but I love the print. Im a pretty black and white person when it comes to fashion so this is right up my street and I have a few black dresses but none of them as pretty as this so I had to get it.
 I got a few other items but I will be talking about them in a later post.

Overall I think Tennerstore is pretty good as they have items you'd see in your typical high street stores but for a fraction of the price so make sure you have a wonder on their website you can also find them on Facebook and Instagram where they do weekly deals.

Until next time xx
