The Enrapture Totem Styler

Enrapture Encode Totem Styler: £59.99 at Argos  or £54.99 at Debenhams  or Enrapture Website

Hello lovelies. I hope you are all well and enjoyed the little bit of sunshine we had last week. I had a great week up until Friday, when I had an interview and lesson observation before finding out I didn't get the job. So today I'm back on with School visits, Ofsted reports and job applications. Anyway today's post is one I've been waiting to do for a while now. I was lucky enough to receive the Enrapture Totem Styler from my parents for Christmas and I've seriously fallen in love with it.
If you haven't heard of Enrapture, they make amazing hair tools such as this totem styler, heated rollers and a hair waver too. Honestly I want the whole collection! The styler isn't like your ordinary hair curling tong. It has 3 different sections on the barrel, which are controlled by the dial on the styler. Each section heats up to different temperatures depending on how loose/tight you want your curl. This means you get 27 different encode curl combinations. I still haven't had a play around with all 27 different ways. However I really like the loose curl it creates. It's that Victoria's Secret curl I have been wanting forever.
This tool takes minutes to heat up and is so easy to use. You can either use it as a wand or you can use the clamp as a traditional styler. I have used it both ways and I'm not sure which way I prefer yet. However I did burn my poor little face using it as a wand so be very careful because it sure does heat up. My loose curls hold all day like this and I can even wake up with the same style still intact. I absolutely love this styler and I now feel I need the heated rollers in my life. I would recommend this for anyone whether you prefer tight uniformed waves or just a little bit of movement. There are so many different curls to create. I thank you enrapture!! Have you tried any Enrapture tools? What's your favourite hair tool?

Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef

Hello lovelies. I'm rather disappointed in the weather today. Yesterday was glorious but it's clouded over today, not good. Anyway I am really getting into the Summer feel already and I'm hunting down lots of pretty Summer makeup. This blush is such a perfect colour for Summer and it has been
firmly on my cheeks for the past two weeks. I must apologise for the pictures as it's quite grubby, but at least that shows it's been well tested (silly me forgot to take before pics).

So the product itself is so handy in a little screw jar and the best thing about cream blushes is they don't go all over the carpet! I have tried lots of different things to apply this with. I like to use my Real techniques contour brush, then buff the edges in with my buffing brush. But other people may prefer different techniques. The best thing about this is it's so buildable, you can see in the picture below I've only got it lightly applied on my cheeks. But for a night out it can be easily builded. The texture is lovely and it doesn't smell either. It also goes really well with Topshops Macaroon lipstick! This is a firm favourite of mine and will be a go to product for a rather long time! Enjoy your bank holiday weekends!

April Favourites

Wow it doesn't seem two minutes since I posted my March favourites! This year is flying by and it's so scary. I apologise for the recent lack of posts. I have been in London, as my Dad was running the London Marathon. It was such an amazing experience and makes me so inspired to do it myself. I'm very proud of my Dad! This also meant a brilliant opportunity to shop! So I should hopefully have a fashion post coming up soon. I also got to go the amazing Victorias Secret shop, which I was blown away by. I have never seen so much underwear and the shop is huge, it's like a maze. I can't wait for the one to open in Leeds. I'll stop rambling then and onto my favourites of  this month...

Clinique Chubby Sticks
These have quickly become my go to lip product! They're so moisturising and the colour is perfect for everyday use. I have only just started wearing lipsticks and bright colours so it's such a pretty colour to start off with. I love the consistency and they're really easy to apply without a mirror. I want to try some of the chubby sticks eye shadows next!

Maybelline the Falsies Volum Express Mascara
I have wanted this ever since watching Tanya Burr using it. My Mum actually bought me this from a shop on the Cruise liner she went on, she had no idea how much I wanted it either (best Mum). The brush on this is amazing as it's curved so you can really get into the root of your lashes to build volume. It really does give the effect of false lashes and I feel like you don't need to give multiple coats, which I do with a lot of mascaras. As one coat is perfect! A definite favourite I'll be repurchasing.
Revlon Photoready Cream Blush Coral Reef
This product is soooo pretty. I've got a bit of an obsession with coral recently and this blush suits me so well. I've got a review planned for this as I really really love it. The consistency is perfect and it lasts really well without going patchy (which is something I feared). Such a pretty colour, especially for the Summer.
Mac Lipstick in Creme Cup
Now this is actually my first Mac lipstick. I've had it for a while but as I said before I've only just started to get into the lipstick wearing. This is the most perfect lipstick for making that step towards lipstick wearing. It's a lovely creamy pink, which is similar to Mac Angel but not as frosty. When I have worn it so many people have been like that lipstick is so nice. Which it really is! The formula is amazing and the smell is just mmmmm!
Victorias Secret Pure Seduction Fragrance Mix
Now along with all the gorgeous underwear Victorias Secret have they also have the most amazing fragrances. They have huge sections in store dedicated to perfumes and body sprays and lotions. I originally went into the store wanting to get the Coconut Passion fragrance as coconut is my absolute fave. However after smelling every single fragrance in the shop this is my favourite by far! It's described as red plum and freesia, yet I would describe it as smelling like cocktails. It's just gorgeous and I can't think of what else to compare it to. This have taken over my everyday perfumes and I feel it will be there for a very long time too.
