June Glossybox

Hello lovelies!!

it's that time of the month again when my Glossybox arrives! Yay!!

I was very disappointed with the box this month, but not with the products, but with Glossybox, I'll explain later on!

Green & Black's Chocolate

It was my year anniversary with Glossybox this month, so they sent me a free chocolate as a thank you!

So Susan - Universal Blush

In Spoilers, we were told that we would receive one of two So Susan products, and I received this lovely blush. Unfortunately, mine arrived smashed to pieces (first disappointment), so I haven't had the chance to try this out as I am awaiting a replacement from Glossybox, but from looking at it, it looks like a really nice shade that will give a natural glow on the cheeks.

This is £17.95 and is available here

QV Skin Lotion

I was really impressed with this product, it is specifically targeted for dry skin and is suitable for your entire body not just the face. After using this last night I could see a difference instantly with thr skin looking more hydrated and healthy. 

This is £6.06 for 250ml and is available here

Nip + Fab CC Range

I've been keeping an eye on this range for a while as I saw that Millie Mackintosh had fronted a campaign with them, and was therefore really excited to discover this lovely little concealer! I haven't actually had the chance to try this out yet as I was in a rush this morning and I think I was twisting it the wrong way... oops! But it has a bristle brush similar to the YSL Touche Eclat.

This is £9.95 and is available here

got2b Rise 'n Shine Souffle

This again was a massive let down from Glossybox, after a whole year, this was my first ever missing item! After a stern email I have been told that they are sending out replacements for both this and the blush, but that they might not have them in stock so may have to send something else. Which I think is ridiculous!

Overall, I have loved the products that have been sent in this months  box, but have been  very annoyed with the bad standards by Glossybox, hopefully my replacements will arrive soon, but it's safe to say I'm not happy!

Other exciting news - after seeing a voucher on a blog I read, I finally made the decision to purchase a Birch Box!!! The voucher means that the box is just £5 instead of £10, and all you have to d is use the code 'BBXJuneTT'. After reading so many reviews and posts of this months box I am so excited to receive mine, and praying that I receive the beauty blender!!!

Coming Soon - June Birch Box, Simple.

Lots of Love, Jess xxx

The Springfield Country Hotel

 Hello my lovelies!

I'm so sorry for the massive delay between posts, but life's been a bit hectic with a weekend away and working practically full time, but I've just managed to get a new job with more sociable hours meaning I should hopefully be able to post more often for you all!!

As I mentioned, I was lucky enough to get a mini break away this weekend, as one of my birthday presents I received from Thomas! I took lots of pictures, but I didn't want to bore you all with loads, so I've just chosen two, to show how amazing it was.

The spa was based in Wareham which is just outside of  Poole, and it was set in beautiful grounds, the picture below was the view from our own little balcony!

The receptionist was lovely, and as we were the first people to receive our key from their brand new reception, she gave us this free bottle of Bucks Fizz!

Overall, it was the most amazing weekend ever, and I had the most amazing full body massage and facial ever! On the Monday afternoon we decided to make a detour on the way home and took a trip to Tower Park where we had so much fun playing Bowling and in the Amusements!

I hope you've liked today's post, and I've written a few more that will be up in the next few days!

Coming soon - Simple, No More Knots.

Lots of love, Jess xxx

May Favourites

Hello lovelies!!

I can't believe that is the first of June already! This year is going so fast! But I've fallen in love with some new and old products this month, so here they are!! :)

           Soap & Glory Foam Call Dual-Use Shower & Bath Body Wash

I brought this a couple of months back, and didn't really use it, but when I refound it the other week, oh my! It smells amazing, and it makes your skin so soft, and you need the tiniest bit!

This is £6.50 and is available here

Benefit bella bamba ultra plush 

This is only a tester that I received at the Brow Arch March (read my post here) I used this the other day for the first time, and it is such a gorgeous colour!! It doesn't leave the lips sticky like some others, and it has staying power to rival a normal lipstick!

This is on sale for £8.99 and is available here

Chanel Nail Colour - 589 Elixir

I brought this back in February, and it's been a firm favourite since, but I think that this colour is ideal for the current sun we are lucky enough to have! 

This is £17.50 and is available here

The Body Shop Rainforest Radiance Detangling Soray for Coloured Hair

I've had this for months now, but I've misplaced it for the last month or so, so was so happy when I found it! This is an absolute essential for me, as my hair gets ridiculously tangled as soon as it hits water, and this makes it so much easier to brush through without the pain!!

This is £6.50 and is available here


I'm not going to reveal anything too much, as I have an upcoming post based on Simple, but I have fallen in love, so keep your eyes peeled for my new post coming in the next few days!

So there we are guys, that's what I've been loving this month, please let me know of any recommendations you have, especially for Simple!

Coming soon - Simple, MAC Cosmetics.
