When it comes to choosing a perfume I can be a right fusspot! I love trying different fragrances but when it comes to purchasing I change my mind. That's where 'Secret Scent Box' comes in for me! They are a monthly subscription box with prices starting at just £13 a month (including free delivery) and choices for him & her. They for 3 perfumes (9ml in each) in the box that will last the month. The packaging is super handy as its post box friendly, so no waiting around for the post throughout the day. 

These boxes can have a variety of different fragrances including designer and branded perfumes. All of them are 100% authentic.

Ark Skincare Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer | Review

Ark Skincare Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer | Review
When it comes to SPF products many people ( including myself in the past) seem to think they are only needed during the Spring/Summer seasons but nope they are needed throughout the year. I can see why people might think they don't need it no more because during the Autumn/Winter months shops don't sell much SPF products and the weather is usually dull/cold/cloudy.

The thing is no matter the time of year its super important to wear SPF to protect skin against ageing and damaging UV rays. You will be surprised how many amazing products are out their now offering SPF protection in their products. They are things like foundations, lip balms and even serums! 

Now, this is where this amazing Primer comes in! Ark Skincare has recently brought out this award-winning Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer  (RRP £36.00) which is an amazing multi-tasker in which its a primer, SPF and moisturiser. The brand is also made in Britain and the products are vegan and cruelty-free.

My Summer Skincare Favourites

It's now nearing the end of September and we are now enjoying the last few days of the Summer ( not that we had many days which we could actually call *Summer* LOL, its been raining and cloudy most of the time) I would say my understanding and knowledge of skincare products and a routine has definatly improved over 2019. During the summer I have tried a variety of different products and some I loved and some not so much but this post is about the ultimate favourites that I loved using during this summer. 

I have definatly learnt a lot over the past few months what works well for my skin and also products that don't. My skin is combination skin but occasionally my skin can get dry in parts or doesn't like the particular product/s, its all just a balancing the right products for me. 

August Beauty Favourites

August is my birthday month, so several of my beauty favourites from the month are actually presents I got for my 29th birthday. Now I know you may be thinking its a bit late for an august beauty favourites post, which I can understand but I want to share with you all my favourites as these posts are so fun for me to do. I also only have makeup in this post as I have a post coming up in the next few days all about my skincare favourites that I enjoyed using in the summer. 

Last month in my July Beauty Favourites post I wore more subtle makeup ( well more subtle for me that's for sure) but this month its brighter choices. Brands in this month's favourites are 'Jeffree Star Cosmetics' and a brand new to me 'Fenty Beauty' 

Are you excited to read about my choices? Check them out below.

Glossybox September 2019 | Review | Delicious Beauty

Glossybox September 2019 | Review | Delicious Beauty
Glossybox has just launched their September box, woohoo! Last month they had the 'Birthday Edition' with amazing brands inside and a sparkly box to match the theme of the month( just in time for my birthday yay!) This month their theme sounds amazing and its called ' Delicious Beauty' inspired by beauty products that smell good enough to eat. 

Sometimes Glossybox has boxes that are themed which is quite a nice change but this month is their classic pink box design which looks just as fabulous and you notice the branding simply by looking at it.

a day out to the Riverside Museum | Glasgow

Riverside Museum| Glasgow
We have lived in Glasgow for over 4 years and since then we have seen so many amazing places in Scotland. I have to say not only is Scotland rich in history but it also has lots of things to do and places to visit too. One of my favourites places to visit has to be the award-winning Riverside Museum (transport museum) which has over 3000 objects including cars, motorbikes and even a train. We went to a couple of weeks ago with my mum when she came to visit in the summer holidays.

The museum has a generous amount of parking places available and they cost under about £3.20 for 2-hour stay at the museum. The Riverside Museum is free of charge but it's suggested you make a donation of £5 per person in donation boxes dotted around the museum.

As many of my readers know, I am a huge skincare enthusiast! I love trying out new brands and products to see if they work well for me and share my experiences with others on my blog or on my other social media channels. I was kindly sent these products to try from Dirty Works which I was super excited about. 

Dirty Works is a Britishcruelty-free and budget-friendly brand that you can find online and also in Sainsbury's Supermarkets. Dirty Works is a range of fun yet sophisticated products that are for busy people who want some time to indulge in themselves,  which I think is super important right? They combine fun design with good quality formulations and stunning fragrances all across their product line. They have bath & body product, face skincare and also cosmetics. Prices start at just £2.00 and the most expensive product being just £14.00.. bargains, right?
