Styled with Adexe | My new piece of arm candy

Beauty

Last month the lovely Marie at Adexe Watches got in contact with me saying that they love my Instagram and would love to send me a watch to promote on there. This is my first ever watch collaboration so I was rather excited as I see lots of big bloggers promoting watches all the time.
I had the whole pick of the website, all their watches are so beautiful and if I could I would of chosen loads of them, but instead I went for a style of watch which I have been lusting after for a long time. I chose the Sistine Petite in Rose Gold, could this watch be anymore perfect and instagramable?

Before receiving this watch I was never a big watch person, but now this watch is an everyday accessory me. It’s so cute and girly but still chic at the same time making it the perfect staple for every outfit. I was originally going to go for one of the larger watches but changed my mind last minute to go for the Petite, I am so glad i made this choice as anything bigger would of looked silly on me as my arms are quite short.

The quality of the watch is amazing, I have a feeling this watch is going to last me a very long time. It is is waterproof for up to 30m so that means you could actually wear it all the time.

The watch retails for £109 and you can get your own one here.

I want to say a huge thank you to Adexe for sending me this beautiful watch, make sure to head over to my Instagram to see it featuring in many photos!

What’s in the Box: Cohorted November Box

Beauty

Hello lovelies, today is a very exciting blog post indeed, well for me it is because Cohorted asked if they could send me their November Beauty Box to review on my blog! Of course I said yes, jumping at the chance to work with an amazing company, and we all love a subscription box don’t we! So here is everything you need to know about the Cohorted Beauty Box…

Cohorted is a monthly beauty subscription box which is £35 per month (if you sign up now, you’ll receive your first one in January). The total value of my the box I received was £109 which is amazing as you can see a lot of full sized products. Compared to other subscription boxes this one looks and feels a lot more high end, the packaging is really sleek and compliments the products in the box greatly.

Plum & Ashby Honey & Jojoba Hand Cream £15

First up in the box is this beautiful hand cream, which smells as good as it looks! I don’t tend to use a lot of hand cream because I find the smells over powering and they tend to make me sneeze, but this one has a really natural subtle smell which is perfect especially if you put it on before bed.

Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Multi Correcting Cream 5ml x 2 £20

These types of mini creams are perfect for travelling, your able to still stick to your skincare routine but also able to stick to the liquid allowance on your flight. I will definitely be packing these for my trip to Paris in January!

New CID I-intense Mascara £20

Next up is a very chic mascara from the brand New CID which I have never heard of before, but looking at the price it seems to be a high end mascara. The mascara is richly pigmented and builds volume whilst separating lashes.

Too Faced Melted Liquefied Longwear Lipstick £19

Seeing this little beauty in the box made me jump for joy, I have wanted one of these lipsticks for quite a while now! This is in the shade Melted Coral, it is a really beautiful orange coral shade which will be beyond perfect for the summer months.

And finally, a brightening light reflective primer from Figs & Rouge and is the most expensive product in the box. I have only tested this primer out once, but boy did it make face glow! This will be an amazing primer for the holiday season making your foundation glow from within creating a really healthy look. It also does so many other amazing this to your skin such as, neutralise redness, minimise large pores, anti-inflammatory and colour correcting! This will definitely be a staple in my make up bag for my Christmas parties!

I want to say a huge thank you to Cohorted for sending me this box and allowing me try so many new products!

Thanks for reading, see you tomorrow for another post!

Benefit Dew The Hoola // New Make Up Monday 

Beauty


Who doesn’t love a free bronzer, well by free I mean I had to spend £4 on a magazine which I didn’t even read to just get it. I picked this up at the airport and thought why not, start of the my holiday I may aswell treat myself. I never really seem to buy Benefit products at all, I have had a powder Hoola Bronzer but that was way before I started blogging. However I think I will add a few bits from Benefit on my Christmas list (too soon to start making a list?). 

I didn’t really get a chance to use this while on holiday as I had a tan and didn’t find this showed up enough but I’m hoping as my tan fades and I got back to my pale self I can use it. 

As for the packaging I think it’s super cute and really handy, obviously this is only a sample size but to be fair for the amount I will actually use it it will be perfect. Having quite a big make up collection means I never quite finish one product as I’m always rotating them out. 

It is such a pretty colour and seems like it is easy to blend and I’ll give a really natural look on your cheeks.
