I'm pretty sure most people in the Blogging Industry have heard about Bilou! In case you haven't, I'd recommend heading down to your local Superdrug and buying the whole shelf because you're going to love them! They currently only sell body sprays and creamy foams but I'm sure they'll expand their range very soon.

They're 100% vegan and will honestly make you want to eat a bit each time you use them... I'm kidding - definitely don't do that!



COCO COCKTAIL BODY SPRAY

This by far my favourite product out of the ones I was sent and I can't even describe how incredible this smells! It just smells like coconut and holidays, if holidays can even have a smell? If you don't like sweet smells then this definitely isn't for you but if you like smelling like a sweet shop it's great! I get so many compliments every time I wear this and it actually lasts quite a while in comparison to other body sprays I've used.


COTTON CANDY CREAM FOAM

Now I was using this product wrong for about half of the bottle! I thought this was another product to use in the shower but it's actually a FOAM LOTION! I can't be the only one that didn't read the writing on the back surely? Anyway, after using it for what it was meant to be used for I actually thought it was such a good idea! I hate lotions because it makes my hands feel sticky after applying them but with this, I didn't have any residue on my hands whatsoever. Unfortunately, I couldn't really smell it once I had rubbed it in but it did make my skin slightly softer.


FIZZY BERRY SHOWER FOAM

If you love shower foams then you'll definitely love this! It smells incredible and it seriously will last you a while. All you need is a little squirt and it will cover your whole body, I'm not even joking! I use this as a shaving foam too because it works just as well, if not better and it smells good too so that's a bonus. I've also noticed that it makes my body feel a lot softer too!


If you're looking to purchase any of these products then click here and it'll take you straight to the Superdrug website where you can purchase it!

Haute Dolci Dessert Restaurant Review

Haute Dolci Dessert Restaurant Review

As you may already know, me and my boyfriend took a trip down to Cheshire Oaks to visit the recently opened Haute Dolci Luxury Dessert Restaurant! I’m very pleased to say that I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest by their incredible desserts and service.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by one of the members of staff who was extremely friendly and sat us down at a table immediately. We were seated right next to the kitchen which was incredible as we could see exactly how the desserts were made! We were then given a menu and had plenty of time to choose what we’d like. I have to say, the choice of desserts was amazing and I found it really hard to choose just one! 



The restaurant itself had such a luxurious feel to it with cream, black and gold interior. Although I didn’t go to the toilet while I was there, my boyfriend did and he said the bathroom looked clean and also well designed! 



We didn’t have to wait long for our desserts at all, even though the restaurant did get pretty busy. I had ordered the ‘I won’t tell if you wont’ Crêpe and my boyfriend ordered the ‘Best of Both’ Cookie Dough. When it arrived, the presentation of the food was perfect and you get quite a big portion for what you pay. I can’t remember what drinks we ordered exactly but I remember it being really nice and not too thick (as we had ordered milkshakes). The only problem I had was that I didn’t end up finishing all of my milkshake as I was already full from the dessert so that was a shame but you are able to take it away if you wish! 



Overall, my visit to Haute Dolci was incredible and I’d highly recommend you go there if you’re visiting the area!

Summer Essentials

Summer Essentials

As you know if you live in the UK, the weather has been absolutely incredible! We haven't had a Summer like this in ages, in fact, I don't think I've ever experienced a Summer like this!

I tend to have my 'essentials' for every season so I thought because we've actually had a hot Summer this year, I thought I'd share a few of my Summer Essentials with you all.




1. Hunkemoller Clean Tailored Bikini Set

This bikini is a must for your holiday's this year. It has the most gorgeous gold detailing on the Bikini Top Straps and provides enough padding to give you that support. It has a clasp at the back and ties around like a halterneck. The Bikini Bottoms are also gorgeous and they actually act as a 2-in-1. They are called the Clean Tailored Fold-Over Bikini Bottoms so are just like regular Bikini Bottoms when folded over but can also be High-Waisted if left unfolded which is amazing!

2. Ziaja BB Cream

You've probably heard me talk about this BB Cream before but I have to talk about it again because it's not talked about enough in the Beauty Industry. It has a really light coverage which is great when it's boiling hot outside and you don't want your foundation dripping from your chin!

It is quite mattifying but works well on dry skin (which I have) and it also helps to even out your skin tone. The most amazing thing about this BB Cream is that it's under £3! How affordable is that?!

3. Australis Ultimate Dark Violet Based Tan

I will be jetting off to Tenerife in a few weeks but this Australis Fake Tan has been an absolute must lately! What I love about this Tanning Mousse is that it is formulated for Olive Skin-Types which I have never come across before in a Tanning Brand! It doesn't leave me looking orange at all and makes it look like I've spent 2 weeks in Spain which is the look I'm going for! I'd recommend leaving it on overnight for it to fully develop if you want to get the darkest tan possible and what's great is that it isn't streaky and dries in seconds!

 4. Clarins Eclate Minute Lip Perfector

This is the lip product I've been using almost every day in the Summer. I only have the travel-size version but a little goes a long way so it's lasted me months! I have shade number 05 in Candy Shimmer and I'm in love with how it looks on my lips. It makes them look plumper and smoother but still natural looking. Also, it smells absolutely incredible, I'm sure it has a hint of vanilla in it which makes it smell so good!


That sums up my Summer Essentials Post!
What are your Summer Essentials?

Holiday to Tenerife

Holiday to Tenerife
Wednesday, 25 July 2018

I have to say I'm a sucker for a good holiday so when my boyfriend's parent's said they wanted to take us to Tenerife I was beyond excited! I have been to Tenerife before, I went a few years ago and I absolutely loved it!

The last time I went we stayed in a 4-star hotel, however, this one is a luxury 5-star and we're going in August which is the same month as my previous trip was... I have the worst memory you could possibly imagine so even though my last trip was only around 3 years ago, I still don't remember much of what we did. 

What I do remember is that the beaches are absolutely gorgeous and you'll be sure to get a glowing tan as it gets pretty hot in the summer! There are 2 different types of beaches in Tenerife, the regular golden-sand beaches and the volcanic black-sand beaches. Personally, I prefer the golden-beaches but it' would be nice to explore the other kind too. My family always tend to go all-inclusive as there's quite a few of us but this year it's going to be half-board. We're definitely going to be going on a lot of day trips so I think this was probably the most sensible idea. 

Siam Park was another thing about Tenerife that made it that amazing! Siam Park includes the world's longest Lazy River which is great because that's actually one of my favourite parts about a Water Park - I'm boring I know! If you're looking to book a holiday whether it be to the incredible Tenerife or anywhere else in the world then I'd recommend doing it through Holiday Gems. They not only help you book the holiday but they also provide all the information (such as temperature and things to do) that you could possibly need!



I can't wait to go back to Tenerife and if you're struggling to find 'that perfect destination' then I'd recommend going there!

Kiss My Parcel Review

Kiss My Parcel Review

I know I'm not the only one that struggles with what to get people for birthday's, anniversaries or any other special occasion. My boyfriend's birthday is coming up pretty fast and I'm already running out of ideas. I was sat here for a good few hours browsing the internet for 'Gift Ideas for Men' and couldn't find anything that he doesn't already have, that was until I came across the website 'Kiss My Parcel'

Kiss My Parcel is a website that creates unique care packages for every occasion and offers FREE Next Day Delivery so that you can ensure your Care Package comes in time! There are so many packages for all occasions such as becoming a parent, having a cold and people who are fighting cancer. 



The package itself comes in a box filled with shredded paper and lots of little goodies. It also contains a personalised card in a wax-sealed envelope. I feel this is such a unique idea and totally different from the standard flowers and chocolate you may get for someone. One service that Kiss My Parcel offer is the Bespoke Service which allows you to create a completely personalised Care Package! All you're required to do is send the company a short brief of who and what the package is for and they'll do the rest! It makes the job so much easier for you!

So, if you're looking to get a personalised gift for somebody then I'd 100% recommend Kiss My Parcel! They provide excellent customer service and create the most gorgeous presents!

They also have 20% off until the 31st of July so I'd recommend buying one now.

I'm not usually one to do posts like this however seen as I am having my new bedroom decorated in a few weeks, I thought this would be a good post idea!

Personally, I love the country-style, shabby chic look for certain rooms so this is most likely the look I'll be going for in my new room. I have filmed a few Instagram Stories already of what my room looks like currently so make sure you're following me on there if you'd like a sneak peek before I write a post about it. 



Now, I don't have my own house yet but I already have an idea of how I'd like it to look. I have similar taste to my mum and I was actually the one that encouraged her to buy Shabby Chic furniture. If you have no idea what 'Shabby Chic' is then I'd recommend just googling it because I'm not the best at describing things! 

I think my favourite room to design will be my kitchen just because I love the marble work surfaces and I would love to create a country-style kitchen instead of the classic, modern look. 

As far as decorating a new house is concerned, it's very important to have a number of websites that you know you can rely on to buy furniture from. HC Supplies is a great website to go on if you're looking for work surfaces, bar stools, taps and sinks. It features so many different styles so you'll be sure to find something that suits you! Not only that, but HC Supplies also has Showrooms which you can look at if you're struggling with how to design your kitchen.

Let me know how you've designed your house or if you don't have a house yet then just let me know how you would design it!
