Mother's Day

My mummy and I.
I know where I get my .... face from now!
Who's ever not been able to find something they're looking for? Well, we've all done it. Gone to look for something, not being able to find it and when our mum goes to check it miraculously is there.

A tip that will stick with me forever is a very practical one. My mum always says, “when you’ve lost something look for 60 seconds”. The number of times I have gone to look for something and not found it but then gone back and found it is ridiculous!



Here's a little family photo (minus my youngest sister - she wasn't born yet).
I'm on the right.

The girls of our family.


Summer 2017

I hope you all had an amazing Mother's Day and spoilt your mummy's!

IxPand Base Review

Firstly, this has taken me a very long time to post and I'm so sorry about that! Without further ado, I want to tell you about a new lil tech gadget I've been loving recently...


I don't know about you guys but I use my phone like crazy and making sure it's always charged is important. There's nothing like needing to go out and having a phone with low battery or dead. never the less, I so scared that I'll go out and loose or break my phone or even the risk of having someone steal it! So, making sure it's always backed up daily is something I always do.

With the IxPand Base I can do both, charge my phone and back it up, at the same time! It's a charging base that you just place your iPhone onto and it backs up your entire photo library and contacts. With the IxPand base, you can back up your photos to avoid that dreaded notification 'Not Enough Storage' coming up on your screen. This means you can delete the photos on your iPhone to give yourself more memory for taking photos, yay!!  

The process is so easy. You need to download the IxPand Base App on the App Store to get started. It tells you how long the backup will be, how much space is left on your Base and when it is completed. 

 

The IxPand Base comes in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB. I got received the 32GB so unfortunately there wasn't' enough space to back up all of my photos (I have a 256GB iPhone X). However, it did mean that I had an extra 32GB of space on my phone to take hundreds of more photos! 

I would definitely recommend this as a product from SanDisk,  as it is worth investing in. It's so easy to use, so don't worry if you're not very tech savvy because neither am I! I just leave it on the base overnight and when I wake up it is backed up and I have a fully charged phone for my busy day ahead! 

If any of you do end up getting this, please let me know what your thought are too!

From Him, To Her


I am such a hard person to shop for unless I've told the person something specific I would like. 
So I've put together a gift guide for all the guys who have no idea what to get their girlfriends for Christmas. This gift guide includes products I would love to get for Christmas (and hopefully you do too).

To make it even more easier for them, all of the products that I have featured can be purchased at a Debenhams Store or Online.

 

Who else loves the Better Than Sex Mascara? Meeeeeeeeeee!! Well, how cute is this? It comes in packaging so that it can be an ornament that you hand on your Christmas tree. 

Another favourite of mine is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow. 









I have wanted the Naked 3 Palette since it came out around 2/3 years ago! So if my boyfriend got me this for Christmas I would be over the moon. Urban Decay are also having 30% off the Naked Palettes, so instead of £39.50 he can get it for £27.65! 

Every once in a while I like to have a cosy weekend at home and pamper myself. Nails Inc have this amazing The Fairytale Of Good Skin Gift Set which includes 5 face masks for just £19. 

Another amazing mascara is the Buxom - Lash Mascara which everyone needs to try!


I had to take a picture of this palette open because I'm obsessed and it's so dreamy!

Another present he could get you is the Kat Von D Brightening Loose Powder


Okay, I had to add this in. I am a huge fan of anything personalised, so when I saw this personalised jar of Nutella I had to get one for my younger sister. You can only get this done in a Debenhams Store but there's a cute little gift set which you can get online here


I hope this is helpful for him.

Christmas From The Body Shop


I know I know, it's been a long time since I've posted but Uni work had taken over my life.

I'm so excited for this post because it's my first Christmas Gift Guide! All the products in this gift guide are from The Body Shop and they're perfect for Christmas presents. 


Frosted Plum Festive Tin or as I like to call it a 'Purple Bauble' - £20

First of all, let's talk about how cute this is! I saw this at The Body Shop event I went to a few weeks ago. The idea behind this packaging is amazing. Inside this large shiny purple bauble are the following products:


Frosted Plum Shower Gel 60ml
Frosted Plum Body Scrub 50ml
Frosted Plum Body Butter 50ml
Frosted Plum Hand Cream 30ml


If you bought all these products individually it comes to a total of £31, but by buying the bauble, you can get it all for just £20!! It is such a great price and will also look so pretty on your Christmas Tree.



Everyone loves a body scrub right? 
This Frosted Plum Sugar Scrub is the present for everyone this year. It smells amazing, it makes your skin feel amazing afterwards, it's just amazing.



This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves a little bit of glitter and shimmer in their life. I couldn't take a picture that justifies how pretty this looks! You all need this in your life. The best way I can describe it is that it looks a bit like the Milky Way but way more purply and sparkly. This could be a cute stocking filler. 

We Rule The World Trend Palette - £12 

Okay, so I took these pictures when it snowed yesterday. It didn't stop snowing all day until it got dark so the pictures of the palettes won't be like the rest are. I didn't want the eyeshadows to get ruined by the snow. 

These eyeshadow are part of The Body Shop X House Of Holland Collection by Henry Holland. This is in their campaign for Place For Peace and is to help support refugees. 

The shades are all so pigmented and are perfect for creating a smokey eye this Christmas. There are some really nice sparkly colours as well, which are my favourite! This again can be a good gift for someone who you know loves makeup and loves to try new things. 


Glitter Dust in Gold and Purple - £7


Oh and not to forget MORE GLITTER! Glitter is one of my must-have products at Christmas time. 
Both of these colours are so pretty. This is this PERFECT stocking filler!

I hope you get some ideas from my Gift Guide and it helps you with Christmas shopping this year! I know I always find it hard to find presents for everyone.

SIMMI AW17 PREVIEW


SIMMI is one of my favorite shoe brands! I was lucky enough to be invited to their AW17 PREVIEW at the Cuckoo Club in London.




The room was beautifully decorate and there were shoes EVERYWHERE! 
(here's a small preview of some of the shoes, but you can now shop the MIDNIGHT FANTASY COLLECTION now!)




We were treated to cocktails after cocktails, mini burgers, chips, pretzels and a huge pic 'n' mix.  




HA Designs were there and we were able to get some goodies personalised with our initials on them!


These are the shoes I wore. They're so cute!


Love Zayna xx
