Hey! I'm Sophie, I'm 22 and live in Leicester.

You can usually find me at a gig in the photo pit or shopping for another new outfit which definitely won't fit in my wardrobe.

Enjoy looking around my blog!

My Autumn Top Five**


So the other day I got thinking about a post that I could write for you all and I realised that I haven't shown you some of my favourite beauty products in a while. They have completely changed since the last time I spoke about them all so I thought that I needed to document them all for you again. I'm going too start with my all-time favourite and work my way down the list!

#1 - The Beauty Essentials, Shadow Switch

I was very kindly sent this from Beauty Essentials and DEE&CO to have a go with. And I must say, it is a definite investment! Inside this cylinder tin there is a rough sponge that when you move your shadow brush in circular motions on it, the brush is instantly clean. If it isn't obvious already from the name, Shadow Switcher is meant for those awkward mornings when your eye colours decide to merge because you really can't be bothered to swap brushes. The best thing about this product is that it is a dry cleaner, so your brush doesn't get wet and ruin your eye shadow. It is such a simple but effective idea. They are definitely one that I will be buying people for Christmas! Lucky for me they only cosy £5.99!

Beauty Essentials is a company that specialises in making a collection of tools to help you with your oh so important make up routine. Their products will soon to be available in Sephora and online when their official webpage launches - I cannot wait! Since this product has been sent to me, the packaging has changed, in other words, the picture with my mark on it isn't the official packaging. Although it is so adorable here, the new product looks even better, is that even possible? If you would like to see the latest style of packaging, scroll down to view the image.

#2 - Merumaya, Melting Cleansing Balm

I received this in my goodie bag at the East Mids Meet Up which is probably why it looks so familiar. I have not stopped using this, it's fab! Merumaya have a range of skincare products that are pretty amazing. This one will blow your mind. When you first apply this product to your face, you will see the effect instantly - you make up actually starts melting. Once you have removed a majority of your make up it will turn into a milky solution and you can clean it off with warm water. It quite honestly cleanses your skin, leaving it looking smooth, hydrated and fresh after a few uses. A 100ml tube would cost around £16.50

#3 - NYX, Soft Focus Primer

I got this a while ago and I love it! I have tried so many primers, usually in liquid form, and you think that they are working but they really don't. This one is lovely. It comes in a cream form and you receive a free foam pad with the product as well. What I like the most about this NYX product is that it is so light, you can barely feel it. It reduced pore size, redness and smooths out the skin to give an even tone under the foundation. This cost me about £9.99

#4 - KIKO, Endless Sky Mascara

I adore mascaras, I just couldn't resist this one in KIKO when I saw it was under £4! I have been addicted to KIKO since my London trip and was only meant to go in to grab some nail varnish in Birmingham, when my eyes caught the red 75% off sign...You can imagine how that shop ended! I use this every day and never fails to perform amazingly, the packaging is so adorable too! This picture doesn't do it justice as it was getting really dark but the mascara tube is a gold colour and the box is beautiful, I could stare at it all morning, haha!

#5 - The Body Shop, Seaweed Oil-Control Gel Cream

I have a combination of dry and oily skin so this is great to use under my make up. I have noticed a big change since I have started using this, my oily zones have started o reduce and I'm not losing half of my make up on my nose and chin due to the oils. Not forgetting that this product smells fantastic, I think we have established about five times now that I am addicted to The Body Shop - they never fail me! I'm pretty sure this Seaweed Oil-Control Gel Cream has changed it's packaging now but it cost me £13.

That's all I have for today. Back to the endless coursework for me now!

Until next time...
