New budget makeup brand: Makeup Revolution

When it comes to budget makeup brands, there is a big gap on the market and my drugstore favourites are not as cheap as I would like them to be anymore. Thankfully, the recent launch of Makeup Revolution blew me away and I am really impressed with the quality, price and variety of their products. There is something fro everyone, including purse friendly dupes of popular eye shadow palettes, stunning lip colours, a dreamy foundation, baked blushers, highlighters and more! Most products cost between £1 to £4. Bargain!

Breakfast inspiration with Alpro #alprotops

If you follow my food instagram account, you might have seen my breakfast creations with Alpro yogurts. I was kindly sent a hamper with some of their products and an amazing pack of toppings to shake up my breakfast routine and experiment with various ingredients. As a big fan of Alpro Simply Plain, I couldn't wait to try more flavours and I must admit- they are absolutely delicious!

Life changing food discovery: Slim Noodles

Today's post is a little bit different and I couldn't wait to share it with you. I love food - it is something that excites me and something I enjoy a lot. I hate junk food and unhealthy stuff, but I am a perfect example of a healthy eater who is fat anyway. It is very easy for me to eat too much healthy food and I am still struggling to get rid of all the post-pregnancy weight (I gained a lot). To reduce the amount of calories I am eating, without compromising on flavour and portion size, I looked into trying Slim Noodles (rice, pasta etc) and I am left absolutely amazed with the possibilities. It is a life changing product for me and I decided to make it a big part of my diet. If you like food (especially noodles and Chinese dishes), you will love all the products I am about to mention. I am not being paid for this and I bought every single packet myself, I just want to share my discovery, because it could help you control your calorie intake or actually help you lose weight.

Nivea Cellular Anti-Age Skincare

Nivea is a brand I have been familiar with since a very young age. In fact, it was the first skincare brand I have ever used, because both of my grandmums and my mum have been using their creams for decades! Most Nivea products are very cheap and do the job, but the new Nivea Cellular range feels much more high end and luxurious, featuring three key anti-ageing ingredients: Magnolia Extract, Hyaluronic Acid and Creatine. The formula promises to accelerate cell renewal, reduce & prevent wrinkles, plump & firm the skin and keep it moisturised and happy.

Neom Cocooning Candle

I was really excited to take part in the #NeomStressLessChallenge , simply because I find all their candles an absolute godsend when it comes to dealing with stress and anxiety.  The April campaign features a 3 wick Cocooning Home Candle*(£39.50), a  light and fruity scent with comforting floral notes, described as 'the perfect antidote to tired, weary bodies in need of some well-deserved me-time'.

Love Me Beauty April 2014

Love Me Beauty are definitely the most impressive subscription box service on the market and every single month they deliver a fabulous selection of products. After looking at the April menus, I opted for edition 2, simply because I really wanted the Models Own Nail Art Pen :) I am happy with the rest of the contents as well and the lifestyle extra made the box even better!
