Real Techniques - The PowderBleu Collection

If you guys follow me on twitter and instagram you'll have seen that last week I arrived home, after what's been a horrific and stressful few days, to a package from real techniques and Influenster. Which was a very pleasant surprise as I really wasn't expecting it. So, I'd just like to state now that I recieved these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. 
Honestly, I felt spoilt and a little guilty when I opened this up as I really wasn't expecting to receive so much! Real techniques are a brand I have used for a very long time so as you can imagine this was  a treat. Included in the package was four brushes from real techniques new powderbleu collection. This hole collection is designed specifically to use with powder based products. So if you use a lot of powdered makeup these might be perfect for you. 


Firstly, the packaging is to die for. I adore the colour scheme as the royal blue shades just scream absolute luxury and would look gorg…

The Too Faced Dupe That's Better Than The Real Thing

Firstly, I know that my blog uploads have been a little all over the place recently. I've just had a birthday (I'm 22!) and I'm also in the middle of writing my dissertation for university so as you can imagine I've been a little pushed for time. Anyway, cast your mind back to a couple of weeks ago when I spoke about the Too Faced better than sex mascara (check it out here if you haven't already). I have been seeing for a few months now that people have supposedly found the perfect dupe of the Too Faced mascara and I love a dupe so I had to get it. The dupe in question here is the L'OrĂ©al Paris paradise mascara. On first sight this looks similar to the Too Faced one. The colour, the packaging, everything is very similar. But does it actually work the same as the Too Faced one? 
So, here is what they have to say about the product:

Which is certainly similar to the intentions of the Too Faced one. And it has a significantly lower price tag (£11) however I find t…

What I Eat In A Day

Something that's become remarkably popular over the past year or so is "what I eat in a day posts" which really does just take your instagram picture of avocado on toast to the next level. I suppose we are all just really nosey at the end of the day and knowing what someone eats is interesting in an odd way. So, I thought i'd do my own post but NOT with the intention of making others feel bad, telling you that you should eat exactly like me and it's also not an invitation for a wannabe nutritionist to give me their opinion. 
Firstly, some background info on my diet. I'm not vegan or vegetarian. However, I do try to avoid eating heavily processed meats and i'm not a huge fan of dairy products anyway. I'm not allergic to any foods (that I know of) but I try to avoid anything too greasy as it does not agree with my stomach....You know what I mean we don't have to say it out loud! Also, I try to avoid too much salt and sugar because it breaks me out …

Hidden Gems Of Liverpool - The Palm House

I started this series a while back but have only just got around to adding to it. The goal of this little blog series is to explore the more unseen side of Liverpool. See, if you're visiting Liverpool you may just want to do the typical stuff. Visit the Liver-building, museums, Liverpool 1 and basically anything Beatles related and theres nothing wrong with all that because that really is what this city is built on. However, if you're looking for something a little more unique you may want to consider the Sefton park palm house. 
The palm house is located in Sefton Park, which is a huge park worth looking around on it's own. If you're driving there the postcode is L17 1AP. Parking is available but can often be busy. There is also disabled parking right outside the palm house but this too is limited. The palm house can also be reached by a few buses including the 60, 82, 82B, 82D, 103, 800, x1 and St Michaels train station is also near by. It is open between 10am - 4pm…
