Birthday and York

Well Hello There! 
It seems that I've got my Blogging/Youtube hat on after a very long time. I do apologize for this. 2014 has been one crazy year for me and Mark. Our life has been hectic and it's only really now that it's began to settle down. We've been to several weddings all across the country, many birthdays (including Mark's 30th), 2 holidays to Majorca and Italy. AND we've bought our own house!

It was my 24th Birthday a couple of days ago and we decided to take a trip to York. I live in Chester which is a little Roman city, York is slightly bigger and has more to offer so we thought a weekend break there would be perfect for us. Oh my! It's a beautiful place, with lovely quirky shops and very old pubs. The minster is incredible, we went up the tower for a better view of the city. York itself is very atmospheric and I would definitely recommend going and I would certainly stay there again.

Anywhoo, I thought I'd show you some of the things that I was given for my Birthday along with other bits and bobs that I picked up on our trip...

REN Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil Review

I'm a big fan of oils and serums alike so when I found out that REN offered a Serum Oil, I was most pleased. The REN Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil* is very light and liquidy in texture and smells great. This little product is packed with omega 3 (which promotes optimum moisture levels, cell renewal and restores elasticity), rosehip seed oil (which stimulates the metabolism of skin cells and is rich in vitamin A) and wheat germ oil (prevents and protects the skin from oxidative damage).
At night, I use a few drops and apply it all over my face. It is quickly absorbed into the skin, making it feel instantly hydrated. Afterwards my skin is radiant, soft to touch and is generally a lot more happier. I also found that my moisturiser goes on a lot smoother after using the Ren serum oil. I really do recommend the REN Skin Serium Oil if your skin is requiring a little boost and some TLC.

Lily Lolo Rose Glow Shimmer Strips Review

I think this has to be one of my favourite products of all time. I have various highlighting powders in my collection, ranging from opals tones, to gold, to violet, but I have yet to get my hands on a rose. Even though rose is one of my favourite colours, especially when it comes to makeup (note Sleek’s Rose Gold blush). So when I got the chance to try out Lily Lolo Rose Glow Shimmer Strips* I was rather jolly!

This product creates a perfect pink sheen across one’s skin, whether it is applied to the cheekbones, collarbones or d├ęcolletage. The rose glow strips could also be used as a wash of colour of the eyelid. The product itself is highly pigmented, easy to blend, and has good longevity.  

I apply Rose Glow to my cheekbones to create an elegant evening look. I find this the best wear to wear it as they are quite shimmery so it is best suited for nights out. All in all it is a stunning product which I for one will use a lot of. I definitely recommend it if you have a busy winter calendar coming up, as this would be the perfect product for you if you like to add a little bit of glow to your complexion.
