Hey darlings :-) Hope you are all well?
It has been a while since I posted a favorites blog so I thought one was very overdue. Here are a few of my current favs, from beauty to books. I really hope you enjoy this post and do let me know some of your favs too, i'd love to give them a try!
#1 Don't sweat the small stuff:
Thought i'd start with something a bit different... a recent favorite which isn't beauty or fashion related. It is the 'Don't sweat the small stuff' audio book. I really love this audiobook and have listened to it a number of times already. I think it is perfect to listen to while you are cleaning, working, taking a walk ect. I personally find it very calming, it helps a lot if i'm feeling stressed or having a bad day. If you get stressed out easily or are looking for a way to be more positive, i'd definitely recommend this!
#3 Body shop perfume:
The scent I have is 'Madagascan Vanilla Flower' which is a lovely sweet smell. I really love sweet smelling perfumes especially vanilla, so this one is perfect for me. I find this perfume last all day and sticks to my clothes well. I love picking up a scarf i've worn and smelling this beautiful scent. It is also super affordable which is great!
#5 Lily Lolo BB cream:
Last but not least...the Lily Lolo BB cream. This stuff is AMAZING and lived up to my expectations completely. If you have checked out my previous blogs/videos you will know how much I love the mineral powder foundation by Lily Lolo, so when I saw they recently brought a BB cream I had to try it.
Firstly I really love that is has a pump. I find the consistency fairly thick but it blends out really well. It is also really moisturizing and leaves your skin looking youthful and healthy. I had this on all day and I have to say I was super impressed with how long it lasted :-) 100% the best BB cream I have ever used! The only downfall with this product is it only comes in 2 shades - medium and light. I am really hoping they get more shades in the future.
I would like to do a full review / demo of this product soon, so please let me know if this is something you'd like to see?
Thank you so much for reading :-) i'll talk to you in my next blog/video. Please let me know if there is anything in particular you'd like to see on my site - more makeup or hair tutorials, fashion ect?
Lots of love xoxoxox
Hey my loves..wow June is over already, where has this year gone?! It does mean my June favourites blog is here :-) I really hope you enjoy reading <3
Michael Kors Handbag - I'm so in love with bag! It was a birthday present from my fiance :-) I absolutely love the colour and soft leather material. This bag has plenty of space and pockets which is very convenient to keep all my things organised. Although this is more on the pricy side, I tend to use the same bag almost every day for years so definitely think it's worth the $!
Dudu Osun black soap -
I use this soap morning and night. I saw so many good reviews of this product online I had to try it out... It has all natural ingredients including honey, lime juice, cocoa pod ash and more. I think this soap is amazing, it has lived up to all expectations for me!
My skin is looking beautiful and clear, my pores also appear smaller since using this soap :-) The only thing I would say is this soap is slightly drying so you will need to moisturize after using if you have dry skin.
I will be doing a full review of this soon!
Skater skirt - loving this skirt :D I picked this up from Boohoo.com for a very affordable price, I also brought the same skirt in black. I think they are perfect for summer or with tights for winter. I love how super comfy these skirts are, as well as being very flattering for my body shape!
Jouer matte moisture tint -
This was another birthday present, from my mother :-) which I'm loving! The colour I have is chamomile which matches my completion perfectly. This tinted moisturizer blends amazingly and is not heavy on the skin at all. It is like a BB cream but with better coverage I'd say, if you are looking to try a new foundation/BB cream I'd definitely recommend giving this Jouer tinted moisturizer a try!
Summer dress - This is my new fav summer dress! It is from H&M, I love the stretchy material which is very comfy and floral pattern. I feel the shape of the dress is very flattering for my figure. It is also an outfit I can wear to work as well as at home which is perfect!
Thank you so much for checking out my June favourites <3 As always i'd love to know your thoughts if you try/have tried any of these products!
Lots of love, Rach xoxoxox
Heyy my beauties! It's that time again, another month has gone by :-) I wanted to share some of my May favourites.. these include; skincare, make-up and fashion. I really hope you enjoy reading!
1. Ren AHA Serum -
LOVE this serum, i'd say it is the best/most effective serum I have used. I use this each night after I wash my face then apply my moisturiser before bed. I find if I have any breakouts or dry skin they are vastly improved by the morning after using this serum. I find the AHA ingredients really work well for my skin. I love the tingly feeling when you apply this product to your face, it's seems like you can feel it working :-) If you like glycolics and they work well for you i'd deff recommend trying out the Ren AHA serum. I also love that Ren do not test on animals <3 as an animal lover this really makes Ren a very appealing brand to me. All their products seem to be of a high quality, I have quite a few samples of different Ren products and they all work great!
2. Maybelline concealer -
Can't believe I have only just tried this concealer.. it is my new fav! I was previously using a MAC concealer mixed with Revlon skin lights, but this Maybelline concealer stick has definitely taken over as my new fav. I love the consistency, It covers well without being too cakey or heavy. I also find this product blends in really well and does not crease throughout the day. I got this from my local drugstore, it was very affordable which is an added bonus. Huge thumbs up for this product!
3. Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer - I have been using this primer for a couple of months now and I plan to continue using it for a long time! I love that this primer is oil free and very light on the skin. The consistency is quite silky and clear in colour. A little goes a long way and I find it really helps to even out my combination skin. It leaves the face feeling so soft and non greasy. I also have quite large pores on my nose and I definitely think this product helps to stop my pores getting clogged up with make-up / dirt throughout the day.
I recently went on holiday and forgot to take my primer (which I will never do again).. I must say I really noticed a huge difference without it, not in a good way!
I think this primer would work well on any type of skin, however If you have combination/break out prone skin I would 100% recommend this product.. it is fantastic :-)
5. Nivea - In shower body moisturiser
Picked up this product a couple of weeks ago from my local drugstore, and it has really been a great addition to my shower routine. You use this product after washing with your shower gel.. you simply rub it all over your body then wash off! It leaves your skin feeling so soft and moisturised. I love how quick and convenient this is to use, and you don't need to use moisturiser after showering when you use this product. However I do have a couple of very dry patches of skin/eczema on my body so I sometimes like to add a little extra moisturiser to these parts after my shower if needed. It perfect if you are in a rush or if you often forget to moisturise your full body, like me :P
5. Summer Trousers
I wanted to share 1 fashion favourite for this month, and it has to be these new trousers from Forever 21.
I think they are so perfect for summer, I love them! I really love how comfy and light they are, and of course have a beautiful floral design which is one of my favs <333 I think the high waisted shape is very flattering, they also hide any lumps and bumps which is always great. I think these are a perfect addition to a summer wardrobe!
I really hope you enjoyed this blog, if you try/have tried any of these products please let me know your thoughts :-)
Lots of love, Rachie xoxoxox
Hey Friends, how are you all doing? Firstly I wanted to thank you for checking out my website. I hope you enjoy my weekly blogs / upcoming videos!
I wanted to share some of my favourite products for April :-)
1. Lily Lolo mineral foundation
This foundation was recommended to me by a friend, she has flawless skin so I thought I'd try it out. I have been using the Lily Lolo mineral foundation for a couple of months now.. it is AMAZING and works so well on my skin. I have blemish prone combination skin, with dry areas on my cheeks and a oily T zone. I found this foundation works so well to hide any blemishes and even out my skin tone. It also does not give me breakouts which is a huge bonus. It lasts really well on my skin all day, and does not need to be topped up or set with a powder. As a working lady I do not have much time in the morning to spend on my make-up, I love how quick and easy this foundation is to apply. I tap out a small amount of product into the lid, and apply with a kabuki brush (the colour I use is - Cookie).
I was sceptical about using a mineral powder foundation as I'd mainly researched bare minerals and heard very mixed reviews. However I cannot fault the Lily Lolo powder. It is definitely my favourite foundation/powder I have ever tried.
Before applying the mineral foundation I cleanse/moisturise my face and use my Smashbox photo finish primer.
I feel like if you have very dry skin this may not work as well for you. However if you are looking for a foundation which is easy to apply, includes SPF, and leaves you with flawless looking skin, i'd definitely recommend Lily Lolo!
Where to purchase: http://www.lilylolo.co.uk
You can also purchase Lily Lolo from Amazon which is where I got mine from :-) they ship worldwide.
2. AHA/BHA Exfoliant Cleanser
I cannot say enough good things about this product!
Firstly it contains Glycolic and Salicylic acids along with micro beads which clean out the skin so well. Over time this has eliminated any blackheads and cleared out my blocked pores. The overall condition of my skin has vastly improved since using this product!
I have tried a few other similar products but have not found one which works as well as this. I was advised by the spa I brought this from that it can be used morning and night. The micro beads are small and not too harsh which is perfect for every day use, without causing irritation to the skin. I like to massage this product into my face then leave for a few minutes to let the acids do their magic.
I am really so pleased I came across this product it has done wonders for my skin!
Where to buy:
Best Face & Body day Spa - Woodland Hills CA.
You can order online at -
The only downfall about this is the spa currently only ships within the US.
3. Blush Palette
Really liking this blush palette this month :-) it has a variety of shades including matt or shimmery options. My favourites are the pinks, a little goes a long way with these which is great. I picked this up from eBay for just 5.99, such a bargain!!
4. NARS contour stick
I had been looking for a contour stick for quite a while and finally came across this one from NARS which i'm loving! I decided to go for the darkest shade 'Vientiane' so I could use it all year round even when I have a tan in the summer. It can be blended out really easily to get the shade you want. I use this on my cheeks, forehead and on the sides of my nose. It is a slightly pricey but I feel it's definitely worth it :-) I also think this will last a very long time so it is a worthwhile addition to my make-up collection. If you are looking for a great product to contour with which is an alternative to powder i'd definitely recommend this!
Where to buy:
NARS store - http://www.narscosmetics.co.uk/color/cheeks/multi-use/matte-multiple/vientiane
Sephora - http://www.sephora.com/the-multiple-P2866
