Triangle shapes, piping detail, lace, scuba and suspenders; what's not to love about a Figleaves press day? Now I must admit, I'm bias, as I've actually began working for the company three weeks ago (hence so many photos pre-guests). However, my 'want' list is already sky-high and I've realised now the importance of having quality underwear and swimwear (Sorry Primark, I think we'll be parting ways imminently). 

The press day was held at the Sanderson Hotel, somewhere that I'd only heard about but never been. Words can't describe how beautiful the venue is. The space-themed lift took me the closest to another galaxy I'll ever get, the spa transported me to a world of tranquility and the whole decor of the place was like something from Pinterest. I felt like an incredibly lucky girl to get to spend the whole day there! 

There was also some gorgeous pamper sessions taking place in treatment rooms, where press could get their nails done, and in another room, bra fitting...what Figleaves do best. 

My favourite pieces were Stella McCartney (the triangle bra's photographed above) and Figleaves own 'Loren' set. Scuba swimwear was definitely my summer favourite at the event, and the triangle inspired bikinis were tempting me to book a holiday ASAP.

All in all it was a great event, and even better that I got to work the whole thing!! I think my lingerie wardrobe will undergo a massive transformation this pay day!

Over the last week, there's a few thing's that I've been truly loving, so I thought I'd do a little roundup with you and share what I've found!

1. Soap And Glory Perfect 10 Eyeshadow Palette






Considering I'm trying to build my MAC palette, buying anymore eyeshadows seems pretty unneccessary. But after regretting not purchasing last year's Soap and Glory's Perfect 10 (they're limited edition), and realising I had enough points on my Boots card to get this practically free, I knew what I had to do. 

Packaging wise, I don't know if I love it or hate it. It's very lightweight which is great for travelling, and I like the general feel and size of it, but I just think for something limited edition, the front should be slightly more...timeless. But all is forgotten once you open the aforementioned lid and your eyes feast upon the beauty that is 'the Perfect 10'. It's rare that you open a palette and think 'I'm going to use every colour here', but that's exactly what you get with this one. The shadows are pretty pigmented and last all day...I couldn't fault it at all. Here's a little breakdown:

Moon Mist: A shimmery highlight shade, perfect for the inner corners of your eye and arch of the eyebrow.
Minky: Similar to Moon Mist but with that hint of pink, perfect for all over the lid. 
Nudecomer: A matte pink/nude shade that is great for all over the lid. 
Copper: Look no further for a bronzed shimmer look.
Toasty: A pink/brown matte that looks great in the crease to give your eyelid that contoured look.
Damsel: A slightly brighter pink/purple shimmer, dazzling for nights out.
Cream Soda: More of a natural highlight than Moon Mist if you wanted a glam daytime look.
Choccy: What eyeshadow palette is complete without a dark brown? This slightly shimmery one is perfect for a smokey eye or to use as a liner.
Plumtious: I'll probably get the least wear out of this as it is a dark purple, but when dressing up, would look great blended out of Damsel!
Shoulder: Because a black eyeshadow always comes in handy! 


2. POWDER



A website that tailors beauty recommendations to your skin type and preferences. From lipsticks to highlighters, this can help you find new products you didn't even know existed. What's better? It's saves them for you so you have a 'beauty drawer' full of exciting prospects. It's completely free, and also quite fun, so it's definitely worth checking out here!

3. Newcastle Infographic

This week I've been featured on an infographic about the hidden gems of Newcastle. I had the chance to recomend an eatery that I love, and of course it had to be Ernest. A bar/cafe that serves all types of food, but breakfast is their speciality for me. From chorizo and eggs to the 'hash bowl' (aka. the best breakfast you've ever had), if you're ever in Newcastle and looking for an Instagram-worthy breakfast, look no further.

4. The Jumper of Dreams

I found this last week, and nabbed the only size 10 left in stock. It's so typical that whenever a good jumper hits Primark, all the size 6 and 8s go immediately, but luckily the 10 gives an oversized and very cosy look. Can you believe it's Primark? I thought it looked so much more expensive!


If you liked this weekly roundup and would like to see another, let me know!

People exercise for different reasons. Whether it's to lose weight, tone up, increase your overall fitness or try and become more positive and mentally stronger - exercise can help you a number of ways. As someone that used it for multiple purposes - weight loss and definitely to help me stay focused and strong mentally, I guess you can say that I enjoyed reaping not only the physical but the mental benefits. But the physical benefits are a tad masked behind typical skin woes and I often think that if parts of my body were a bit smoother, they would look a lot more toned.

Introducing Mio. They specialise in fit skin, and combining a healthy lifestyle with skincare - something that pretty unheard of! But when you think about it, the two really go hand-in-hand. I was sent a couple of products to review from the brand, and after a few weeks of trialling and testing, I can't imagine my fitness regime being without these miracle-workers.

1. Skin Tight Body Serum
A thick, gel like texture that claims to 'smooth and retexturise uneven and creepy skin - think juicy grape not wrinkly raisin'. It advises you to use this as a first step in your skincare regime, so I have been letting this sink in before using my second Mio product - The Future Proof Firming Active Body Butter. It's really easy to apply and is absorbed really quickly. I'm not the biggest fan of the consistency, as it does feel a bit sticky when applying, but luckily that goes away!

The product tingles slightly after it's sinked in which makes me feel like it's doing something, even though I've seen no real noticeable affects as of yet...so I have a lot of hope for the future! I'll definitely keep you posted on that one.

2. Future Proof Firming Active Body Butter
'Mega-moisturises, increases bounce and resilience' - this product does exactly what it says on the tub. My skin feels so soft after applying this, and it looks really radiant which is a nice extra. Due to how good it feels and looks, I feel like it does have a bit more of that 'resilience', and I feel that after a few more weeks of using this, my skin is going to be completely reinvented. My one flaw? The smell is slightly medicinal, but it doesn't linger for too long :)

3. The Run Faster Kit - Workout Wonder Invigorating Muscle Motivating Gel, Liquid Yoga Bath Soak and Clean Slate Workouts Wipes
This gel is amazing. In fact, I'll go as far to say that anybody that exercises needs it as part of their routine. You apply it before you go for a run or workout and also after. It tingles and gets your muscles working before you've had the chance to push them to their limits. Why is this good? Because they then recover so much faster. Noticeably so in fact. This is definitely something I'll be repurchasing.

The bath soak is lovely and has a smell that reminds me of other muscle soak products. I find baths to be really helpful when your aching, so haven't noticed the benefits of this product as much, but I really enjoyed relaxing with this.

The wipes are very self explanatory, and really handy to keep in your gym bag when you need a quick freshen up. A must have if your on a tight schedule!

If you're interested in any of the products, you can visit Mio Here.  They're website is great as you can pick your problem areas and find products to help you through that. They also have some great bundles, like the Gym Kit, where you can get the Workout Wonder Gel and Workout Wipes in one!

Has anybody tried Mio before or heard of products similar to this? I'd love to know your thoughts!

*Products were sent to me for the purpose of review, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Having a sleepover or a girls night in used to be and still is one of my favourite things to do. Whilst the temptation of wining and dining out gets a little overbearing sometimes, I really don't think it can top staying in your pjs and having a good old natter!

I remember when I was younger (before the days of Netflix and Sky Movies) and thinking my 'girls night' prep could win awards. Seriously, I'd get snacks (fizzy laces usually), magazines, beautiful nail polishes, face masks, and a variety of feel-good movies that my friends could choose from. So when Plusnet contacted me regarding a Girls Night Package, I couldn't resist having all the fun, but without all the effort! They have partnered with BFI to promote their blockbuster 'love' season in which the British Film Institute are showing classic love films across the country.

I was lucky enough to also be given an account for the BFI player, as well as Breakfast at Tiffany's on DVD, so I had all the tools I needed to watch a classic romance movie!

Warning...these photo's are the goofiest that have ever graced my blog...







Introducing my sister, Emily - the girl who not only makes me cry with laughter more than anyone else, but she is by far, one of my favourite people to spend an evening with. I did put these photos in black and white because she decided her 'comfy' attire was a lime green hoodie, blue top and pink pj bottoms (WHYYYYYY)...

With face masks on (not that you can tell much with my pale, pale skin), popcorn 'popped' and Breakfast at Tiffany's at the ready, we were all set for a good ol' girly night. We then checked out the BFI player, which had some of our favourites like Notting Hill, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Bridget Jones...and don't you go to telling me you don't agree!

Especially now it's all dreary outside, I can see this type of evening being a reoccurring event, and I'm not complaining one bit!
