My ACHICA experience

Hi everyone.

I am sure you have seen the Achica advert on TV many times. I see it every single day and it looks fab!
I always wondered what is it all about and wanted to try out The Members-only Luxury Lifestyle Store. 

New home for my blushers, bronzers and powders - Z Palette Pro review


I have been thinking about depotting some of my makeup for a while, especially single eyeshadows, blushers, bronzers and other products I don't really use. I tend to keep them at the back of my makeup drawers, but they definitely need more love! That's why I decided to put them all in my new Z Palette.

Depotting was actually easier than I thought. I used a thin knife to get the pans of products out of the original packaging. MUA blushers were quite hard to get out, because of the plastic cases, but the Bourjois bronzing powder was a piece of cake :) To make things easier, you can use a flat iron to warm up the back of the original case to melt the glue. This way, the metal pan will easily pop out.

The Z Palette  is sleek and sturdy and it is such a great little invention!
Since I depotted some products, I have been reaching for them more often and they are not being neglected on the bottom of my makeup drawer. You get metal stickers to stick onto the back of non metal pans (see pictures below) and keep the products in place. I used the stickers on some of the metal pans actually- don't ask me why... I am silly sometimes! ;)

My beautiful Zebra Z Palette Pro is such a space saver and it looks gorgeous!
If you were thinking about getting one, don't hesitate and order it- you will love it!!! 

You can get yours from www.beautychamber.co.uk and it comes in a variety of sizes and designs.

Neal's Yard Remedies Clarifying Mahonia Skin Gel review

Neal's Yard Remedies Clarifying Mahonia Skin Gel* 10ml £15.50 link

"A purifying treatment to restore balance to blemished skin. Decongesting. Encourages a clearer complexion. Mahonia, calendula,gotu kola and thyme are combined to cleanse and tighten the skin, as hyaluronic acid and aloe vera hydrate and soothe."
I've tried many spot treatments and most of them work really well on my skin.
I don't get many breakouts on my face, but I have been getting quite a lot of them under my jawline.
It is  a bit odd, but I am happy to say that I finally have it under control.

Nourish Golden Glow Toning Souffle review

 NOURISH GOLDEN GLOW TONING SOUFFLE* 150ml £24.95 link

"Light reflecting particles even skin tone, giving a smooth lustrous appearance and a naturally healthy sun-kissed glow. Golden resins of frankincense and myrrh, combined with a nutrient rich phyto-active marine extract, tone the skin, firming and boosting suppleness. With super-hydrating hyaluronic acid and tripeptides to stimulate the production of collagen, skin feels smoother, softer and has a refined, fresh appearance."

I don't think I have ever been so excited about a body care product. 
I am really bad when it comes to moisturising my body and stick to oil based scrubs,  nourishing body washes and good quality fake tan lotions to keep my skin hydrated.
This product is something totally new to me and  I have never used anything like it.

Di Palomo Wild Fig & Grape EDP and candle

DI PALOMO WILD FIG & GRAPE EDP* 50ml £22.00 link

"A rich, modern fragrance with top notes of grape & gardenia. Middle notes of ripe fig, orange blossom & mimosa rest on a sensual base of sandalwood, amber & vanilla."

First of all, I adore the packaging of this perfume. It is simple, yet beautiful and the little flower on the neck of the bottle is a lovely finishing touch as well. 
It comes in a nice presentation box, so it would make a perfect gift.

OOTD: Studded shoulder cardigan and more studs :)

Hi everyone :)
I think it's been over a month since my last OOTD post :) I love fashion, I have far too many wardrobes and racks full of clothes, shoes, bags and accessories, but I struggle to take outfit photos. 
Especially full length ones, as I can't find the right space or light to do it. Kudos to all fashion bloggers who can take outfit pictures without having a photographer.
