Happy Valentines Day! :D

Hello Everyone! It’s February the 14th which means it is indeed Valentines Day and I hope you are all having a wonderful day spent with your loved ones.

Valentines Day is one of those days that’s pressurised – what presents do you get, what card do you get, where do you go for dinner, what do you wear SDLFISAHUS. I think most of the time it’s best not to force these kind of things, it’s easy to get carried away and forget why you’re actually meant to be celebrating. Go with the flow and see what happens – sometimes those are the best kind of celebrations!

I was contacted by a company called Third Love recently who sent me a hilarious image to share with you all that makes you think about Valentines day. Third Love sell really well made underwear basics and bras – with the best thing being that they do half cup sizes!! I thought that was genius as I’ve always struggled getting the exact perfect fit for my petite but womanly frame (womanly frame roughly translates to ‘oh I’ll work off that second slice of pizza in 2018’).

I’d definitely take a look at Third Love, their website looks amazing and I was so impressed – they also have a Fit Finder which will help you find the right type.

Take a look at the hilarious flow chart below and find out what your Valentines Day Bra Personality is! I prefer the term ‘Brasonality’ myself. Mine was a classic 24/7 T Shirt – screams boring but unfortunately comfort is priority with me – deal wide.

I have a discount code for you all to get 15% off your order with Third Love (honestly, the are quite expensive but so are a lot of other brands out there where the quality is good – they look amazing so it might be worth a try!)

Enter the code VALENTINE15 at checkout for 15% off!

How have you spent your Valentines Day?

A) Eating all the chocolate in a 3 mile radius to where you are sitting

B) A romantic brunch by a lake

C) Wishing there were more episodes of Making a Murderer on Netflix

D) Drooling over Ryan Gosling (The Rosling)

E) All of the above

Left Valentines until the last minute? Click right here my friend…

 

Valentines Gift Guide

So there’s only a few days left until Valentines day…and I’m looking at you partners that have failed to get something for your lovely lady!

If you’re left scrambling around convenience stores and garage flower stalls for an amazing present, that officially means you’ve left it til the last minute and you need your Fairy BlogMother…ME!

(If you are a lady looking around in panic for ideas for your boyfriend/husband then click here for my Gift Guide – What to get Him!!)

This is the guide for you if your girlfriend/wife/fiancé is into make up, beauty and fashion (especially perfect if you don’t know a thing about any of that!)

For Valentines day, you’ll have the strongest impact if you take ‘practical’ out of the present. By that I mean, you want to give something that shows ‘want’, something luxurious and beautiful!

For make up, your best bet is to look to Charlotte Tilbury. You’ll get gorgeous packaging, great quality products and hearts in the eyes of your lady!

My top picks would be the Matte Revolution lipsticks from £23, there is a beautiful limited edition rosy pink called ‘Between the Sheets’ which was named by the public (shown below). Matte lips are bang on trend right now and your girlfriend will appreciate the fact that 1. this is beautiful and 2. it’s a bloody great lipstick.

If your girlfriend likes to wear eyeshadow, then a cream eyeshadow pot in a flattering shimmery colour will be perfect. CT does amazing long lasting cream eyeshadows in the most gorgeous colours – Eyes To Mesmerise cream eyeshadows are worth the price – from around £22, but they will last forever and actually it means that your girlfriend will get ready quicker because you literally put this on your finger and then apply it to your eyelid 🙂. Marie Antoinette is a beautiful shade that will suit all skin tones.

Don’t say I don’t look after you ;).

Some other great finds are:

If your lovely lady isn’t really into make up but she loves things like candles and fragrances then there a few stand out things that I’m sure she would love.

Jo Malone is the best place if she’s a fragrance lover, they do some great sets and perfumes and popular favourites are English Pear & Freesia, Blackberry & Bay and Orange Blossom. (from £28)

Another place you can head to is Diptyque. They have really great quality fragrances, and they come in gorgeous minimalist bottles. Diptyque also do candles so this is a great idea if your partner loves homeware and spending hours traipsing around IKEA (maybe with you in tow).

Other fail safe ideas are:

I hope you find something for inspiration! All of these retailers have stores you can dash to to pick things up and in make up shops there will be willing sales assistants to help you if you are stuck.

Happy Shopping everyone!

The Top 5 Beauty Instagrammers

TOP 5 INSTAGRAMMERS

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far AND a brilliant romantic Valentines day <3. It’s not the nicest weather today, am sitting looking outside and the sky is grey and it’s really chilly.

What better to browse while you have an afternoon cup of tea than my list of the top 5 Instagrammers for all things fashion and beauty :):

Here is the run down!

I LOVE scrolling through my Instagram feed and seeing a post from this account pop up. Most importantly, although they post great photos of make up looks and close ups, they post short vines of how to certain make up looks. Check out their account to see brilliant smokey eyes, bold lips and making drawing eyeliner seem like a piece of cake!

The creators of the infamous Real Techniques make up brushes, Sam and Nic Chapman have a great Instagram account where they post pictures of looks they have worn to awards dos or press releases, updates on their brushes line and general VERY IMPORTANT beauty news. Make sure you are following so you don’t miss out on anything!

I found sarahlovsmakeup just by browsing the photos section, and I love the clean, minimalist photos that she puts up. She also has a brilliant blog that matches this theme (very VDM if you ask me). I really like the way she lays out her photos and I take a lot of inspiration from accounts like this, where you think ‘ooh that looks cool’, and try and imitate it! Also, she is gorgeous and does her own make up fabulously :).

I’m going to be honest here and say that I love Amelia, but I can’t watch her videos because I find her voice a little grating. I’m sorry if that’s harsh but it doesn’t take away from the fact that she is a brilliant blogger, she gives a great insight into high end beauty and fashion (because she looks like she’s mega rich!). She infamously uses little snippets of tape to help her keep her eye make up clean, so essentially she is just a normal girl with an abnormally overwhelming impulsion to hoard make up (I think there are many that suffer from this).

Ever since ordering my Lorac Pro palette, I am truly converted to their formulas and this Instagram account brings you all the news in their product range, but also great close ups and collaborations with bloggers and make up artists to showcase their make up. However, when pay day hits it can be quite dangerous browsing their photos as it can get you when you are most vulnerable and able to make several large ‘investments’, shall we call them!

That sums up my top 5 beauty Instagrammers, don’t forget you can follow me on Instagram @snosh90, leave a comment with your account name so I can expand this list to top 10, 20 or 30!

Thank you for reading 🙂
