Beauty: BornPretty makeup brush set review

Hello everyone!
I'm so sad that I've really slacked on the blogging this month, however uni and the one million assignments I've had did come first :( although now I am back with a review I'm very excited about. Recently I was contacted by a website called BornPretty*, and asked if i would like to review their products. After having a browse of their website and seeing what an amazing range of products they had to offer, and what amazing prices they are, I jumped at the opportunity.

Today I am going to review one of my particular favourites from their makeup line, this gorgeous pink brush and roll casing set.


The first thing that I can say about this product is that it is so aestheticall pleasing! It the brush roll is a gorgeous baby pink colour in a faux leather material, which not only looks good but is practical because it can easily be cleaned if it happens to get any makeup on it. The brushes are equally as beautiful with a baby pink/ metallic handles and white fibres - what more could a girl want?

The first two brushes in this are a small angled brush that is perfect for precision when it comes to your eyebrows and making sure they are neat and that your brow game is strong ;). This smaller brush can be used for accents such as brightening your tear duct with a highlighter, or can even be used for eyeliner.

The larger of these two brushes is great for applying eye shaddow whilst the smaller one is perfect for blending to get a beautiful smokey eye look.

We also have an eyebrow comb and a sponge applicator which are great to tidy up the last few bits of your makeup look.

The last item is this larger brush which I have found to be perfect to apply my contour with as it's really soft and perfectly blends it in.

If you're interested in this brush set or any of BornPretty's products, you can use my discount code YBH10 at checkout for a further 10 percent off their already amazing prices!

Fashion: What's in my bag? 2016

Hello everyone!
Last year I posted a what's in my bag and I got such a good response (mainly because you're probably all such a nosy bunch, like me) and so I thought that I would do another one, since I have a new bag that I generally like to carry round with me instead.
I got this backpack from Primark quite a while ago and didn't expect it at first to become the one that I used all the time, however, I've found it so useful! Whilst handbags can be big, bulky and get in the way, this you can throw on your back and get on with what ever you need to do. I find as well that if I have a lot of stuff in there as well I generally don't get back or shoulder ache like I do with a traditional handbag. Any way, without further ado, here is what is in my bag:

First up I have my Zara perfume which featured in my December Favourites. It's the perfect size for my handbag as its a really little bottle and it's always nice to have some fragrance to top up with throughout the day, especially if you're out all day.

A fairly new addition to my bag is this lovely Cath Kidston ticket holder, which has come in so handy for me recently. I've found that it's a lot easier to have this whilst you're travelling on trains or buses so that you don't have to keep getting out your purse and fumbling about because you don't even need to take this out of the holder to use.

Who always spends longer looking for their keys in their bag than actually using them to open the door? Well, this was always me before I found this adorable pom pom keyring from newlook. Because it's so big you will never lose your keys in your bag, plus, pom poms are so in right now.

One thing you may not know about me is that I am as blind as a bat, for real. Most of the time I wear contact lenses, however sometimes they can get a bit sticky or uncomfortable throughout the day so I always bring my glasses with me just in case. These ones are from specsavers and I absolutely love them, they make me feel so trendy and sophisticated,

I also always take a mini can of deodrant with me, just incase I get a bit flustered or hot, as well as my Cath Kidston purse which I've had for ages now, but still absolutely love.

Here, we have two of my study essentials; earphones and a project A4 notebook. I think that this size notebook is really good so that you have space and can see what you're doing in terms or your work, as smaller notebooks can get a bit cramped and I find I can barely understand my notes!

And of course, last but not least, I have my iPhone.

What do you carry in your bag? Any essentials? I really hope you enjoyed this post and would love to know what you think in the comments! Also don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin' and all my social media :)

Life: My goals and aims for 2016

Hello everyone! Hope you have a really good New Years Eve and are looking forward to the new year. I thought that today I would write about my goals and aims for 2016 as I think that it's really great to set out what you want to do so you know how you're going to achieve it.

I have loved blogging over the past year, it's such a good outlet for me as I love writing and being creative. I really want to continue learning and improving my blog this year. I definitely want to learn how to take better photos and to improve that layout and theme of my blog. I am also setting the goal of getting 1,000 Bloglovin' followers - I know it's not all about the numbers but it's really lovely to set goals to reach.

As well as working hard for my university assignments I would really like to get some work experience and internships within the fashion journalism world. I am already starting an internship with and I would like to do more for some magazines so I can gain valuable experience for my future career.

I would love to run some 5k races such as the race for life and the colour run as I've always really enjoyed running and it would be nice to have a goal to work towards. I would also like to do this to raise money for charities. As well as this I would like to give blood because it's such a good thing to do and helps people invaluably.
I also think that I need to get back into reading because I love it so much but always find myself getting more into Netflix and casting reading to the side. There are so many books I want to read but haven't got round to yet!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. What are your goals and aims for 2016? Don't forget to comment and let me know what you think and follow me on Bloglovin!
