Neom Luxury Organics 'Happiness' Candle

Now let me start by saying..... I HAVE NEVER SMELT ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEAUTY!

I am all into my candles, especially Yankie Candles but this is totally different. This seems to really appeal to me when I want to wind down and relax.

The packaging is soo lovely, clean and crisp looking. The candle itself is held in a clear glass however you can buy a candle cap from Neom for the candles to sit on so it doesn't heat up your bedside table for £10.00.

Product - NEOM Luxury Organics candles are made using only vegetable wax and pure essential oils rather than synthetic fragrances so they burn without releasing harmful pollutants, toxins or soot. They work as powerful holistic treatments as you breathe in the scented air. 

Loving the fact that this appeals to me as an holistic treatment rather than just another scented candle

Fragrance - A sparkling blend of White Neroli, Mimosa and Lemon is combined with natural fresh grass notes to create the awakening of spring. 
I have to totally agree, it makes me feel fresh and smiley and really reminds me of spring time and flowers blossoming etc! Amazing how lighting 3 candle wicks can totally take you away for a moment!

Treatment - This lively blend of happy notes will make you smile, take the weight off your shoulders and sprinkle a little joy into your world.

Now the price of these candles are £37.50 directly from their website. It is a little too pricey however the size of the candle, i'm pretty sure it will last you at least more than a month (if you burn it every few days for a few hours)

It does say to light for a MINIMUM of 2 hours to make sure that the wicks burn evenly so that you get the most from your candle and also for a MAXIMUM of 4 hours.

Just soo relaxing to watch! And again, another perfect pressie for Mummy on mothers day! =)

Have you ever tried these candles?

What's in a MUA's train case?

Afternoon beauties!

Ever wondered what a Make-up Artist carries around in their train cases for photo shoots and make overs?
I have had a few requests on YouTube and took to twitter to see if anyone wanted a video and the answer was YES!

I put this together last night so apologies if it seems rushed at all however I though it would be a good insight into the types of products I use etc.

As you know the products would vary depending on the specification / location. It just happens that the last shoot I completed with a neutral look =)

Hope you find this interesting, any questions or comments leave below for me!

MUA & LoveHearts Collaboration (with swatches)

On Wednesday I attend the MUA and LoveHearts event at The Piccadilly Institute... what a venue! Great views!

Anywho.... the new MUA products were nicely displayed round the room and I was excited to get a closer look as some of the products I have seen on their Facebook page and taste those amazing cupcakes!! Nummy!

Here are some photo's of the new products that were on display for us to play with.

I am LOVING these lip balms. How cute are they. They remind me of the sleek pout polishes however allot cheaper.£2.00 a tin... awesome!

The whole collection

Sweet Kiss
Sugar Lips
Kiss me

I am super impressed with these 3 in 1 Contour pens. The 'gunmetal' colour is to die for. Such a gorgeous pigment colour and all the shades smudge really nicely so you could even create yourself a smoky eye with just one pen... amazing!! These are £1.50

I did try out the BB cream but unfortunately I wasn't too impressed with the texture, or the smell of the product. The BB cream works well with the skin tones, however it left my skin feeling quite sticky afterwards and the smell was very over powering for me. Something that I wouldn't consider buying myself however other people tried it and loved it. For the small price of £4 I would recommend that you at least give it ago in store!  

The Nail varnishes were GORGEOUS!! screaming our spring time with the pastels. Looks like I'm really going to have to make a conscious effort to grow mine and stop biting so I can wear these. The packaging really reminds me of Models Own varnishes but again.... CHEAPER to buy which is always a winner! :)
£2.00 each

They also have a lovely glittery selection of nail quake polishes... oooo shiny!!!

Swatches of U R FAB and U ROK

Last but not least MUA have released an Out There Lip Plumping Lip Gloss selection.
I HEART THESE!! First of all I didn't think it was working, however leave it on around 20-25 seconds and you will start feeling a tingle!! The colours are amazing as well, defo a favourite product of mine. These retail at just £2.00 each!!!

Candy Pink

Shocking pink

Pink Sugar


Overall the new products from MUA working with LoveHearts is just amazing! The products are fantastic and at such an amazing price its just a steal you cant not buy!!

You can pick up most of these products in your nearest superdrug store from Mid February or online at www.muastore.co.uk
