NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments: The Best Liquid Lipstick Ever!

I know that my liquid lipstick posts are becoming a broken record, but this might be it. I think I have found my absolute favourite liquid lipstick ever. I was extremely lucky to go to a NARS drop-in through my internships and was given these four lip products in a goody-bag and I absolutely love them! I haven't worn another brand's liquid lipstick or lipstick in general since I tried these. I have also put these in my holiday make-up bag as my only lipsticks for the trip - now I think that shows how great these are!

Inside My Makeup Collection: Benefit Cosmetics

Benefit has been one of my favourite brands for a very long time. I have always liked the stand-out packaging and I like although it is a higher-end brand, it is not extremely expesnive so I think it is a great place to start if you are interested in buying higher-end makeup. I have had many Benefit products over the years but this is what I currently have in my collection - since I took this photo, I managed to get my Hoola bronzer back from my sister but when you read this, I am on holiday and I did not have time to include it in this image but I do absolutely love it!

August Birchbox: Mermaid Vibes

My first Birchbox subscription has finished and I am excited to be continuing with another and writing up these posts for you! This month's box was inspired by the Mermaid trend and I think they have done a really beautiful job with the box! The products I received this month are a real mixture of brands I have heard of, formulas I have not heard of and products I can't wait to try! On a side note, I picked up some more candles from IKEA in new colours to use in my flat-lays and I am loving them so far! The candle in this picture is Blackberry and it smells amazing! How many photographs can I get with this in the background before I absolutely have to start burning it!

Smoothie Time: Strawberry & Banana Smoothie Bowl

Clean eating is still a very popular trend and a great way to introduce yourself to that trend is smoothie bowls! Smoothie bowls are super easy to make and you can completely tailor it to what your like. Just like with regular smoothies, there are so many recipes out there and don't feel that you have to follow the recipe exactly, I based this recipe on one by Deliciously Ella and then tailored to what I like! I love topping my smoothie bowls with more fruit, seeds and granola to add even more sweetness and some crunch - and let's face it, it makes it more pretty! Side note, if you love Instagram-worthy food, you should check out alphafoodie on Instagram, she makes some seriously beautiful food!
