Tienne Jewellery

This is my new favourite addition. I have been after something similar for a long time so when Tienne Jewellery contacted me I was overwhelmed by the choice they have on the website. They stock brands such as Thomas Sabo, Daniel Wellington and the range that this beautiful necklace is from - Muru.

This is the Muru Talisman Gold Ancient Coin Necklace

Tienne Jewellery have kindly given me a 15% off discount code on their Muru lines. Use ALEX15 to grab your discount, perfect timing for Mother's Day! Go go go!

Beauty Review: Nip + Fab, Rodial and Monsoon

Nip + Fab 

Nip + Fab is a brand I have used a few products from and really loved so when they kindly sent me some bits from their Kale Fix range I was genuinely excited. The products are make-up removal pads, a clay face mask, and a tummy fix. The Kale Fix make up pads are really gentle but effective whilst removing make-up. I don’t think I wear a lot of make-up during a normal weekday but I found myself having to use two of these pads to remove the last traces of make-up. The pads have a really fresh clean smell which I love! 

I love a good Clay mask and was not disappointed with this one. It left my skin soft and visibly glowing after the first use. Some clay masks I find quite drying but I really love this one and again, it smells great! Even Kylie Jenner agrees, this is a quote from the woman herself… "I travel a lot so I like to use the Kale Fix Mask to get my skin hydrated again."  Can't argue with that!


Literally my go to make up brand at the moment, I have not used anything that I haven’t liked! My day-to-day make up look includes at least three Rodial products. My hero products are Glamobrow in Dark Ash Brown and Instaglam Compact Deluxe Bronzing powder - so worth the money! Next on my list is the Instaglam Contouring Powder...

Monsoon – Rose Gold Perfume

Monsoon kindly sent me their new fragrance - Rose Gold to review here on my blog. As it's name suggests the fragrance is based on roses, with top notes of citrus and woods to round off a rich aroma. I am not normally a fan of floral scents, but I actually like this. As far as the packaging goes, I’d give this top marks. It’s sleek design gives it a look of a high end fragrance.If I had to use two words to describe this scent it would be glamorous and feminine.  This is definitely one for Mother’s Day girls!

Rodial Sculpting Masterclass - Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar

*New brand love alert!*

So at the weekend I got invited to one of my favourite stores in Liverpool, Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar. Literally a girls dream, from counter upon counter of all the best beauty brands, to in house hair salon, Nails Inc nails bar AND champagne bar. Can you see why I love it in there?

Anyway, I digress. Only in the past few months have I come across the brand Rodial, founded by Maria Hatzistefanis. The brand ethos revolves around high performance skincare offering targeted, results driven treatments. I was so excited to learn more about Rodial and test their products.

Harvey Nichols invited me to have a sculpting master class with the lovely Aimee. I was treated to the Rodial Signature Sculpt which involved a full facial and sculpting (this is £50 and redeemable against product)   

Here's some pictures from my masterclass. Aimee was amazing at teaching me step by step what products to use and tips on how to use them 

Products used: 
Dragons Blood Cleanser Water - to remove my makeup 
Dragons Blood Eye Gel - as part of my base
Skin Tint in Capri mixed with Stemcell Super- Food Facial Oil - this gave a great dewy finish 
Eye Sculpt - amazing texture and build able pigment 
Glamobrow - in Dark Ash Brown 

I was also very kindly gifted a massive bunch of Rodial items to test out 

I will do another review of the products I was gifted when I've had time to test them out for a period of time, but on first impressions - I'm impressed! 

Big thanks again to Harvey Nichols and the Rodial team for a lovely afternoon and I can't wait to update you on the products.
