How Good Is This £5.99 Foundation?

The Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation is £5.99, I know, I was shocked too! I am not going to lie, I was a little skeptical to try it out just because it is so inexpensive, I didn't think that it would work but I also figured that most of you might be curious as to how good an inexpensive foundation is and so I am just going to do a little review of it today.
Like I said before, this is called the Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation and as always the links will be below. This foundation is super accessible, you can get it from Superdrug for £5.99 but Collection always have offers on so maybe hold on a you might get a great deal.

LABELS? Sexuality? Vegan? Cruelty Free?

I have been wanting to do this post for a while but I have been struggling to find the words, so I am really happy that I am ready to share this post. This post might turn out to be a bit of a mess but I just want to keep it super rare and honest.

A label, the new thing that the 21st century are obsessed with, whether it is a lifestyle like "Vegan" or "Cruelty Free" or whether it is something more personal like a relationship status or your sexuality "Single" or "Gay". Either way, I think, they are overused and I hate them, so let me get into why.

I hate labels because I just think you are giving a person one word to associate them with. For example, if someone comes out to you as gay, some narrow minded people are just going to refer to you as the "gay friend" or the person I know who is "gay". I think that this is just wrong, there is so much more to a person than their sexuality or that one label you have given them. I only named a few examples but it could be anything from "fat", "smart", "lonely", "virgin", if anyone ever referred to me as one of these, I would truly be offended. This is because I would like to think that there is so much more to me than my intelligence, or my physical appearance etc.

Empties #1

I feel like it has been forever since I have done an empties post. Please let me know whether you like this sort of blog post and I will be sure to do more. These products have been collected over the past few months so there is a good range of beauty products to share.
Soap and Glory Scrub Of Your Life
This body scrub is so amazing, this is only a mini but I find that I only scrub my body fully once or twice a week so it has taken me a while to run out of it. The scrub is quite intense but the scent is quite soft and pleasant. I love this scrub and it is probably my all time favourite so I will continue to repurchase it, but I have quite a few back ups of it at the moment so I won't be getting a new one anytime soon.

What's in my Travel Makeup Bag 2017

It has been about a week or so since I have came back off my holiday, but while I was in Jamaica, a lot of you requested I do this post. I have done a few travel makeup bag posts before and I feel as though in every one I have over packed for it, saying that, you seem to love them so here is another excessive amount of makeup I took on holiday with me.
I am just going to go in the typical order of makeup so for primer, I brought just two mini samples. Sample are great for travel because they are super small but will last you while you are there, although it is a risky thing since you have likely not tried the product yet, they are great. If I really hated these primers, I would not have been too bothered because I only wore makeup of an evening and so I took it off straight away so really, I probably didn't even need primer. Anyway, I brought the MAC Skin Visage Primer and Benefit Porefessional, neither of these are spectacular but they did the job and since they are not empty yet, I will take them on a few more holidays. For foundation I took my ride or die, the L'Oreal True Match, you all know how much I love this but I needed a foundation I knew I would love. This has a little spf which doesn't hurt but the coverage was great and I adore the finish. Most problems with bringing a foundation is that it won't match you come the second day, that is if you are going to a sunny place, so I brought the shade Golden Ivory, which matches me when I have no tan and then I brought a mini W7 foundation sample in a few shades darker to mix come nearer to the end of the holiday. I do this every time I travel and I find it so useful as you can custom your colour and again with the samples, they take up no space!

Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone!

Firstly, I want to apologise for the awful quality photos, this blog post was a very last minute collaboration and thanks to the unpredictable England, I have had no opportunities to take any quality photos.
Now that I have that out of the way, today's blog post is all about breaking the boundaries and wearing something completely new. We all have at least one item of clothing that we bought out on a whim thinking, "Oh, I am never going to wear this, but I'm going to buy it anyway!", I know I have been there. That's what today's blog post is all about, wearing something new and taking a step out of your comfort zone.
The lovely people at Dia&Co got into contact with me and inspired this post. They are a plus size clothing brand that is all about embracing your shape or size and feeling confident in every way. I can't even express how important it is for you to feel all kinds of beautiful in what you wear and so I challenge all of you to step out of your fashion comfort zone. Share it on Instagram, Twitter or even do a blog post like me. If you do wind up breaking your comfort boundary, then leave me a comment and I will check it out. I will also leave a link to Dia&Co at the end of this blog post so you can go see what they are all about.
