Maybelline Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation shade 105 Ivory, £5.99 - Boots

For a while now I've seen the Maybelline Fit Me Matt & Poreless foundation on the blogs and YouTube videos of bloggers overseas and I have been patiently waiting for it to come to the UK.

Having previously tried it's sister foundation the Original Maybelline Fit Me and finding it too dewy for my oily skin I waited and wondered if us Brits would ever get our hands on this version of the foundation without having to order from abroad, but at last, our time has come!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm and Cairo, £6.99 each - Boots

Everyone seems to be in love with the matte liquid lips look at the moment and I am no exception to this. I have my fair share of liquid lipsticks from various brands and more recently I have been trying the NYX soft matte lip creams.

I opted to go for two quite neutral colours to play it safe, also because I tend to wear them more, so it made sense! The colours I got were Stockholm and Cairo, Cairo being the lightest on of the two.

Review // La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Daily Moisturiser

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Daily Moisturiser 40ml, £14.50 - Boots

I've never been particularly into skincare until this last year. The more I understand my skin and the more I get into the application of makeup the more I understand the importance of taking care of your skin, not only that but recognising what your skins needs are.

My skin type is normal/oily. I am relatively normal around my outer face but the T-zone is rather oily, especially during summer. A lot of this may be down to dehydration but even fully hydrated, I still get oily, so incorporating products into my skincare routine that work for my skin type is something I'm trying master.

My Top 3 Foundations for Any Occassion

L -R: Max Factor FaceFinity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 foundation, £12.99 - Boots // Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation, £12.99 - Boots // Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place makeup, £30 - Debenhams

Foundation is definitely one of those products that is personal to everyone's different skin types and everyone's different skin needs but these foundations, in my opinion deal with a lot of different skin worries all in one.

For reference I generally have oily skin, occasionally it gets dry and I am prone to a breakout or two, usually around the chin area. These foundations cope extremely well with those problems and I will tell you how.

Beauty // My Current Favourite Self Tanners

Bondi Sands Self Tanning foam in Dark - £14.99, Superdrug // Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tanning Mousse in Dark - £9.99, Superdrug

Fake tanning is something that is quite personal I find, some people love to be tanned, others love to be pale. In my opinion both options are good, I like that some days I can be pale and others I can be tanned without having to damage my skin.

I wouldn't say I'm a fake tanning pro, but I have used my fair share and these are the two that have stood out to me above others for many reasons.

Fitness // My Current Workout Routine & Some tips!

Following on from my last post about starting my fitness journey, I thought I would share my current routine with you all and what I enjoy doing when I'm in the gym and when I'm not!

I wont go into what my diet consists of in this post as it may become too long, but if you're interested, leave a comment below and I'll write that up!

What's Going On?

So I've recently taken a large break from blogging to focus on my, my mental and physical health and just because I wasn't enjoying it as much as I used to. I'm back now, but with more of a laid back approach and with a change of direction for the blog which I will explain.

Fitness // Getting started & losing 1 stone (14lbs) in 6 weeks.

I just want to start this post off by saying that I'm in no way a nutritionist or a fitness expert at all!! I am basically a newbie, haha. I can literally only tell you what worked for me. Like I said, not an expert! This whole fitness and health topic is a minefield so I will tell you what I did and how, just for reference I am 5ft 2in (157cms i think) and I'm 23 years old. So I'm quite small. My calorie numbers and so forth may not work for your body.

I did this in a healthy and maintainable way, This is not a quick fix post or a crash diet, I'm still going to the gym etc to try and lose more but when I get to a comfortable weight, i do intend to stick with the fitness and healthy lifestyle I have found for myself. You can't do this and then go back to eating a surplus of cals/food as before everyday, you will just gain the weight back.

Ok with that out of the way I will get started on how I got into this sort of lifestyle and how I'm improving my health!

Paco Rabanne Olympea Eau de Parfum, £42 - Debenhams

I'm always on the hunt for new fragrance, I'm especially inclined to buy them when a new season rolls around as I tend to like a different scent for each season, just me?
