How to stress less

If you’re feeling a little wound up, maybe the end of the year is making you stressed it’s time to take a moment to focus on you. There are so many things you can do to decrease your stress levels and take some time to relax. Everyone can find their perfect relaxation technique and I have a few below fo you to try out.

Just a few:

  • Meditating- calms your body and mind and helps you to tune into your thoughts and feelings, maybe play some calming music of sit in a quiet space.
  • Read a book- let your mind wander off when you get engrossed in a story, great for just before bed to give you a better sleep.
  • Go for a walk- get out and wander around your neighbourhood, listen to everything around you. Walking makes your feel better and you don’t have to even
  • Do something for yourself- do your nails and watch some Netflix! Maybe watch some youtube and style your hair? whatever makes you focus on YOU.
  • Hang out with some friends- go to breakfast and the hit the shops or something, anything to get you the house and socialising with your besties.

Anyway thanks for reading and I hope you have an amazing week.

Fountain Charcoal Clay Mask- Review

Charcoal-Clay-Mask-500

The team at Fountain Cosmetics was lovely enough to send me this amazing face mask and I absolutely love it. The mask is really easy to apply with the hand pump top and it leaves you with a hilarious charcoal coloured face. I loooooved the way my skin felt after I used this, I have found a serious reduction in acne after I started using this a few time a week. It is a very soothing and gentle face mask this is great for all types of skin, it’s a perfect mask for everyone! This fantastic product is only $28 and can be purchased here:

Stila Eyes Are The Window- Soul- Review!

Stila - Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette  - Soul

I have officially found my absolute favourite eyeshadow palette in existence, grab your beautiful self a snack and get ready to listen to why this is actually incredible. The Stila Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette in Soul is the most beautiful and easy to use palette I have found. It has a lovely range of natural colours with both mattes and shimmers. IT is on the more pricey side at $71 in Australia, $49 in the US, or £30 in the UK, but totally worth the investment if you are after quality.

The packaging for the palette is a functional and attractive golden colour that is a square shape with the Stila logo in the centre, it contains a mirror inside and is nice and compact. Inside there are 12 shadows, 5 silky soft mattes and 7 stunning shimmers, they are extremely pigmented and the colours are as follows.

Light- Beige matte
Individual- Burnt medium brown matte
Being- Deep brown matte
Kitten- Beige shimmer
Affection- Burnt brown shimmer
Character- Deep brown shimmer
Thought- Hazelnut shimmer
Heart- Dusty light brown matte
Peace- Warm medium brown shimmer
Vitality- Bright gold shimmer
Substance- Dusty olive shimmer
Essence- Black matte

You can be assured the absolute best quality when you treat yourself to this beautiful palette. Stila has put a beautiful combination of colours into this palette and I absolutely adore the fact it has a perfect combination of mattes and shimmers. This palette is inspired by the spiritual notion that true beauty is revealed from within, and I just adore this idea.

Hope you liked this review and keep on shining

Kester Black Nail Polish- Review

TW2

Hello everyone! I have a super exciting piece for you today on one of my all time favourite nail polish brands Kester Black. I received one of their shades in the Marie Claire’s ‘The Parcel’ a while ago and have been in love ever since. My all time favourite shade is ‘In the Buff’, It is such a natural and understated colour that honestly goes with everything. Their nail polishes are really great quality, it takes quite a lot to chip it. The best part is you only need a little bit of polish to get a great effect, I apply  2 coats and the brush makes it a very simple process.

Every single Kester Black product is cruelty-free and many products are vegan, they are an Australian company and they donate $1 from every sale to one of their 4 supported charities. I would absolutely recommend their products, they are amazing quality and the brand itself has values and idea I support 100%. Take a look at some of my favourite shades below and tell me wich is your favourite in the comments or on twitter. They also have international shipping so go crazy!
