Room Tour Part One

Flamingo Bedding, Room Tour, Bed Inspiration

Since I moved last October quite a few of you have been asking me to do a room tour post. I finally got around to taking the pictures once my room was tidy! I have split this post into two parts as I had too many pictures to put into one post. As you can see by my bedding I am quite obsessed with Flamingos! This flamingo bedding is from Primark and it is reversible. My is white wood with the high headboard and it is from IKEA which you can buy here. I love having fairy lights around my headboard and this rose gold ones are from Primark, when they are lit up they print floral designs on the wall.

My dresser area is one of my favourite places. Before we moved I never had room for a dresser so my parents treated me to the Ikea Malm Dressing Table which I love. 

makeup brush holders, makeup brush storage

Most of you will recognise my makeup brush holders from Ikea, I decided to get them in grey instead of white as I thought they added a touch of colour rather than everything being white. These are only £2 and are actually candle holders! My Ariel Letter is one of my favourite things EVER. I got this handmade by a seller on depop and you can find her on Instagram @TLC_Initials . She can do pretty much any design and colour. 

muji drawers, acrylic makeup storage

My Acrylic makeup storage is actually from Ebay and each cost below £12! I keep all of my lipsticks in the holder which holds 24 lipsticks and the muji drawers hold some of my concealers and liquid lipsticks.

The last part of my dresser includes this gorgeous mini drawer set my best friend got me for Christmas, I keep all of my hair bobbles and clips in these. I have my wooden calendar, mirror and my white french bulldog!

How pretty is this canvas?! My mum got me this a few years ago for my birthday, it has glitter on certain area's and it looks amazing above my dressing table. 

perfume storage ideas

Everyone loves perfume right? These are just some of my favourite's I use often, the rest of them are in a drawer as I own far too many. I keep them on this Large Candle Tray from Ikea.

That is part one of my Room Tour and I will be uploading the second half soon. It includes my blogging area, a bit of Disney and more!

Antipodes Juliet Brightening Gel Cleanser Review

Antipodes Juliet Brightening Gel Cleanser Review

As you know skincare has become something I really love just as much as I love makeup. This year I have tried many products and finally found ones that work for me. My skin type used to be Oily but now my skin is becoming more combination. It is still very oily in the normal T Zone area's (chine,nose,forehead) and I have large pores around the sides of my nose. Then I have recently started getting dry patches on my cheeks. Over the Winter my skin became very dull and definitely needs help in the brightening section. 

Antipodes is a brand I have featured many times on Emmy's Beauty Cave as it is a brand I have fallen in love with. My skin can be sensitive so finding brands that work for my skin is important. The Antipodes Juliet Brightening Gel Cleanser is said to reduce the appearance of blemishes and return your skin's natural radiance. I find I have blemishes mainly on my chin area which is where I get my breakouts. 

When I first used this cleanser I was very surprised as it wasn't like any other cleanser I have ever used. The colour of it is like caramel, most cleansers I have used are either clear or white so this intrigued me. The consistency was runny but thick. If I put a bit on my hand it won't run down. I applied this to my face and it felt lovely. I massaged it into my skincare focusing on the area's I am oily and where my pores are. It took me quite a few uses to try and think of what the scent reminded me of. It isn't a horrible smell but it has a strange scent... It reminds me of those conditioners you get in home dye kits. I don't mind the smell at all and I think even if you weren't sure on the scent the results are worth it. 

After around ten days of using the cleanser I noticed my skin looked brighter and more youthful. The blemishes on my chin area have lightened and don't look as dark. My skin feels super soft and feels fresh. I love massaging this into my skin every night before bed, it really refreshes my skin. 

Ingredients: Kiwifruit, Manuka Honey, Hibiscus Flower Extract, Essential Oil Fragrances Of Green Apple & Cardamon and More. 

Overall I am really pleased with the results, it has definitely been added to my evening skincare routine. Antipodes have done it again with another great product. You can buy the Antipodes Juliet Brightening Gel Cleanser and Look Fantastic or Feel Unique

Need Help Sleeping & Relaxing? | Teami Blends 30 Day Relax Tea Detox Review*

Teami Blends 30 Day Relax Tea Detox Review

Tea Detox is something I have looked at before but never gone ahead with, I guess because maybe I didn't 100% understand it. Teami Blends is a company which specializes in Tea Detox for many different reasons. One thing I found is that not everyone does a Tea Detox for the same reason. I was recently contacted asking if I would like to try a Tea Detox for 30 Days. I had a choice of six kinds and I finally picked Teami Relax 30 Day Tea Detox. I have trouble sleeping and literally have no sleep pattern, I find once I go to bed I lay there overthinking things and can't switch my brain off. Hence picking Teami Relax. 

Teami Relax states to reduce restlessness & insomnia, help prevent colds, calms muscle spasms & tightness, relax the lining of the intestines, sooth and relax upset stomachs. This literally sounds perfect for me as I suffer with muscle pain due to my major knee surgery, no sleep pattern and I have recently been extremely ill. I usually drink your standard tea but I have recently been told I have to cut out dairy so fruit tea and flavoured tea's are my only option so this detox came at the right time!

As I mentioned people use Tea Detox's for different reasons, sleeping, loosing weight, getting healthier and so on. I mainly wanted to do this myself to help my sleeping pattern and feel slightly healthier. Before hand I drank normal tea with milk and two sugars now I only drink the Teami Relax which includes no sugar, no milk and 100% natural ingridients so this is already cutting things down. 

Teami Blends 30 Day Relax Tea Detox, Do Tea Detox's Really Work


How does it work? Teami Relax is really easy to use. You take a teaspoon of the mixture and place it into the infuser. Place the infuser top on and place in boiling water. It is recommended to leave the infuser in the water for 3-5 minutes. I usually leave mine for the full five minutes to ensure I am getting all of the natural ingridients at the full potential. That is it, it is that simple! When I took my first sip of this tea I was unsure what to expect as I don't normally drink this kind of tea. I was pleasantly surprised! Me and my mum have both tried this tea and we both pick up different tastes. I pick up the Lavender whereas my mum picks up the Chamomile. 

Ingredient's: Lavender Flower ,Chamomile, Lemon grass, Orange peel, Valerian Root extract. 
Even though the Teami Blends Website advises to add honey, nectar or lemon as a sweetener, I find this to taste slightly sweet on it's own. I am so happy I love the taste of this without adding any sugar. Plus it makes it a whole lot easier to drink rather than some tea's you have to force down!

Week One & Week Two
As I chose the Teami Relax I always drink this an hour before I plan on going to bed. After the first week I started to notice a difference, I was finding it wasn't taking me as long to fall asleep at night as I felt alot more relaxed than usual. I don't really wake up during the night anymore which is a bonus. Into my second week I am loving the flavour of the tea even more, it is just so yummy!

Week Three & Week Four
Moving into my third week of the detox I noticed I was getting up out of bed easier and quicker than I normally would in the morning. Let's just say I am not a morning person at all but since drinking this tea before bed I have noticed a huge difference in my morning routine. I have also noticed I feel less anxious when I go to bed, I do suffer with anxiety so it is nice to find something that is able to take the edge off at night. When I look back to day one where I would lay in bed anxious, overthinking and not sleeping until 2-3am I have come a long way. 

I now make sure I am in bed by 9-9.30pm at the latest and turn everything off by 10.30pm. I am now falling to sleep alot easier and alot quicker. I am getting at least my full eight hours sleep and it has helped me have more energy during the day. I cannot recommend the Teami Relax enough! 
If you struggle sleeping or suffer with anxiety this tea is perfect for you. 

*Vegan Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free & All Natural Ingredients*

I am at the end of week four and I still have at least another 10-15 days of tea left. The Teami Relax retails for £19.99 and the Tea Infuser is only £5.99 from the Teami Blends Website. You can see the UK version here or the US version here

Laura Geller Baked Makeup Review & Swatches


Can we just take a moment to appreciate how stunning Laura Geller Makeup Products are?! I am overwhelmed by all the baked goodness! Laura Geller is a brand I have been wanting to try for a very long time and now I finally own some of the baked products. I decided to pick up the powder foundation and two types of blushers. I need to brighten up my blushers ready for Summer now the warmer weather is coming!

Laura Geller Balance n Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation

Powder foundation's are not usually my thing as I do like full coverage but my skin has cleared up and I am feeling a little more confident this year. I went with the shade Fair which is the second lightest shade. I am pretty pale and this is the perfect match for my skin. It has such a silky feeling and glides onto the skin. I do still use a primer as I have combination/oily skin. I was suprised at the coverage this gave, of course I used concealer first to cover my dark circles and any blemishes but this really balanced out my skin tone and it looked healthy. This foundation lasted amazing on my oily skin, I had slight shine after 7 hours in the corner of my nose but this is typical with any foundation.

Laura Geller Blush n Brighten

How stunning does this look?! It reminds me of the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powders. This blush is just stunning and perfect for Summer. As I am pale I do have to be very light handed with this otherwise it looks too dark. The shimmery shades look lovely in the sun as you turn your head. 

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Vivid Swirl Blush

Pink blushers are my downfall. I own far too many but can't stop buying them. This blush is just super pretty and girly. I got the shade Rosewater which is a gorgeous bright pink blush, it definitely adds a pop of pink to your cheeks without looking too much. Even though this is a powder it has a very creamy texture which applies beautifully. 

Laura Geller Baked Foundation Fair Swatch, Laura Geller Baked Blush Golden Apricot Swatch,

Have you tried any Laura Geller products? I definitely want to try more! I am really impressed with the texture of these powders and the shades are gorgeous. You can buy Laura Geller From Beauty Bay and Debenhams.
