British Airways i360

A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to visit the British Airways i360. If you're either from Brighton or live in Brighton then you would have most likely either seen it, heard about it or have already been up it. Going up the i360 is something I have been meaning to do ever since I moved to Brighton for University 2 years ago.

If you're travelling, you need this - this works!

Recently, I have been in Beijing, China for the past weeks completing my 1-month summer internship. For some reason, my sub-conscience knew I would have struggle sleeping on the other side of the world. I used the £15 voucher I had from Feelunique to purchase something I have never tried before - This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. I have seen so many bloggers talk about this product and found the whole concept pretty interesting in general.

Getting to sleep is easier for some more than others. I love sleeping, so usually, I can turn over and fall asleep almost immediately. However, being in a foreign environment where my close family and friends are on the other side of the world has been pretty challenging for me. Being in Beijing can be an emotional rollercoaster for westerners. The cutlery is different, everytime you cross the road you fear for your own life, skyscrapers are everywhere you look, there is a large time difference, most days are very hot and polluted and barely anybody can speak fluent English. It is a lot to take in for anybody at any given period of time.

Due to everything that I've mentioned above lately, I have become extremely anxious in this environment and bedtime has not been as peaceful as it usually is for myself. The first time I used the pillow spray was on the plane journey here and it actually helped me sleep the majority of the journey (despite the lack of legroom).

Whenever I feel the slightest bit of struggle when going to sleep I would usually spritz the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray at least 3 times onto my pillow. It has a very strong lavender scent which is already well-known for inducing sleep. FYI if you dislike the scent of lavender, then this product probably isn't for you. In a study, 78% of people experienced deeper sleep and 80% noticed that they were less tired in the mornings. So far I have been experiencing the same results. I feel a lot less anxious when falling asleep and often it helps get me to sleep a lot faster too!

What products/remedies do you use to help put you to sleep?

Lots of love,

Lookfantastic Beauty Box June 2018 #LFBEAUTYBOX

Hello my lovelies and welcome to the month of June, we are finally half way through the year! Can you believe it? June is a very exciting month for me because it is the month that exam season ends (thank god!), I go to Ibiza with my best friends and I will be working in Beijing in China for my summer internship - SUPER exciting stuff!

On top of all this exciting stuff that is happening in June, the Lookfantastic #LFBEAUTYBOX is defintely another thing to rave about. Can we take a moment to appreciate the design of the Into The Blue Edition box. Not forgetting to mention the high-quality products that are featured inside this month's box.

This month's beauty box is worth of £65 and contains 7 must-have beauty and skincare related products. Of course, as usual you get a complimentary ELLE Magazine and Beauty Box Magazine with your purchase. One thing that stood out to me in the Beauty Box Magazine this month is the #BBRECYCLE page. I have a stack of beauty boxes on the top of my wardrobe and have had completely no clue of what to do with them like many others. Lookfantastic have listed several different ways you can reuse these boxes e.g. as storage boxes, wall design etc. I think that this is really creative and if you guys have any ideas on how you reuse the boxes or how you could reuse the boxes then please leave your suggestions in the comments!

Lookfantastic March Beauty Box Review 2018

This months Lookfantastic beauty box arrived at my doorstep late February which was quite a nice surprise considering the one in January came extremely late (I think Lookfantastic have definitely redeemed themselves here). Due to the new sneak peak feature that has been added onto the back of each monthly beauty box magazine, I had been looking forward to trying out the Omorivicza Balancing MoisturiserThis months theme is based on Beauty Empowerment and there are some really cool products inside this months beauty box. They seem to be getting better and better! I really can't say it enough, you really do get your money's worth out of these subscription boxes.

Moving onto the contents of the box and my opinions...

Benefit BadGAL BANG Voluminising Mascara Review

A few days ago the new Benefit BadGAL BANG Mascara landed on my doorstep with greatest courtesy of Debenhams Beauty. This is by far one of the biggest beauty launches of 2018 so far and unless you've been ignoring Social Media lately I'm sure you will already be aware of the massive hype this product is currently getting, so of course I want to try it and see if it's worth the hype! 

The wand is designed with 300 individual bristles to coat each and every single lash. Additionally, the wand is flexible making the application super easy with a 360 degree reach.  I was taken by complete surprise because I was expecting this to be an absolute flop because Benefit already have 2 bestselling mascaras in their range, is there really room for another one? Well, I must admit, this mascara is pretty damn gooood! Just take a look for yourself in the before and after images below.

Even if you haven't got a special somebody to impress, we all deserve to treat ourselves after that dreadful excuse of a month (January, lol!). It is safe to say that I will be pampering myself up the whole of this month as I feel like I need a spring clean after all the exam stress that January put me through; Oh, and what lovely products I have to pamper myself with thanks to Lookfantastic.

Moving swiftly on before Cynical Cynthia moans about January any longer. The contents of the box is described below with my first impressions!
