Beauty Unboxing: Birchbox February 2015

I have always wanted to try a beauty subscription box. However, the UK don't (or at least in my opinion) have as good as a selection as other countries. So last week I sat down and researched all the companies that would ship to me, and I settled on Birchbox.*

I'm not really 100% sure why I picked Birchbox, maybe the fact that you can buy all the full size products on their website or maybe just because they were offering a few products that I would have liked to try in this month's box!

Whatever the reason, I'm glad I finally took the plunge and picked a subscription! So let's dive right into the unboxing! How exciting!

Confessions of a Shopaholic: Makeup Revolution Haul

As you are bound to find out sooner or later, I am obsessed with shopping! What's even better is when it doesn't cost me an absolute fortune! Even though the things I usually buy don't break the bank, I don't like to compromise on quality.

However sometimes it can be pretty hit and miss with certain things, so I thought I'd share a little Makeup Revolution shopping spree I had the other week, and to share my views on whether this bargain brand is even worth it in the first place.

Overall, I spent around £30 and got free shipping too (love a bit of free shipping)!

Domestic Goddess: Chewy, Gooey, Chocolate-y Brownies

So this week I have another trial and error baking recipe for you! I have only baked brownies twice in my life before this, once where I followed the recipe to a T, and the second time I used a cake mix from a box.

This time however, I had been looking for the perfect brownie recipe to follow, but I just couldn't find one. So, I took all the components that I liked from other recipes, and used them in mine. And if I do say so myself - this went swimmingly!

Lust List ♥ : Feb 2015

While people are lusting over their crushes this Valentine's day, I will be pining for more makeup!

As a full-time student, and part-time waitress to get me through the hard times when my loan runs out, I can't always (if ever) buy myself the lovely, pretty things that I lust for. These things are mainly high end makeup or just generally expensive, so to quell my need for them, I am going to share them with you instead!

Obessions: My absolute favourite Body Shop products

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Now this is something that has slowly grown stronger over the past year, but I feel it's finally time to admit it... I am addicted to Body Shop!!

Years ago, I hated the Body Shop after a soap my Mum bought from there brought me out in a rash, and I always deemed it as an "old lady" shop. However, my thoughts on it have took a total 180.

If you're unfamiliar with Body Shop's products, then hopefully this post will enlighten you into this fabulous animal cruelty free world!!

Since moving to university, I have neglected one of my favourite hobbies - baking!

I won't bore you with the ins and outs of why I stopped baking (*cough* skint student *cough*), I'll just jump right into my lovely recipe for these buns!!
