Zoella Beauty Winter Range 2018 | prettylittlewriter

Zoe Sugg aka Zoella never fails to impress me with her incredible beauty products. Each year she introduces something even better than the last, and this year it's the Cosmos Winter range. 
 There hasn't yet been an official release of the products (neither Zoe or Zoella Beauty have discussed the products being released) as they were leaked online and then became available on Feel Unique & Superdrug within a couple of days afterward. 
Of course, either way, I was very excited to get my hands on the new products!

The scent is just amazing, completely different to anything she has ever released before. It has a very dark, sultry tone, with a hint of fruit. I think it might be my favourite scent that she has ever released.

The range includes milk powder, body wash, body whip, a large fragrance mist, bubble bath, body cream, bath oils, hand cream, along with many other items I haven't purchased.
Below are my favourite items from the range; the Cosmos fragrance mist, the bubble soak and milky way bath milk powder.

What are your thoughts on the new range?

March Favourites | prettylittlewriter

Hello everyone! 
I have had quite a busy couple of months since I last posted! Not only have I moved house and in with my partner, but I've also changed jobs!

So I do apologise for being absent, but I am back and ready to start blogging again!

To begin, I thought I'd start by showing you all my recent favourite beauty products, most of which I've been using throughout March, but also into April.
First up is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. With the price tag attached to this foundation, I was hesitant to buy it. When it comes to foundation, I'm a Rimmel girl through and through. However, I'd heard great reviews, so I thought I'd give it a try! I am definitely NOT regretting that decision. It's medium to full coverage, which I absolutely love, especially when I'm in the middle of a breakout. It's quite a matte finish, which means I don't need to use a powder to get rid of any shiny residue, and I'm much more of a matte finish than a dewy look anyway, especially at this time of year.
Overall, I absolutely love this foundation, and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Next up is the glorious Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in the shade Diffused Heat. I have never used Hourglass products before, but they have always looked incredibly beautiful, and I was excited to get my hands on this product. It's a subtle mixture of blush and highlighter, a combination which compliments my fair skin perfectly. Blusher can be quite a difficult product to pin down with my skin tone, but this shade works so well for me. It reminds me of the dandelion blush by Benefit cosmetics, another of my favourite blushes.
Next we have the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser in the shade Porcelain. This product has been a god send for days when I feel rough and haven't wanted to wear too much make up. I've had the flu recently, and on days when I still had to leave the house, this has been my savior. It gives me just the right amount of coverage so I don't look too ghastly, it brightens my skin so I look more awake, and just gives me that sense of togetherness. 
Now this product, is seriously my most favourite product EVER to have graced my skin. I know this is a bold claim, however when I apply this Nip and Fab Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix to my skin and then apply my foundation, my skin looks PERFECT. Almost airbrushed it is THAT good! Now I'd normally never pay out a lot of money on a primer, therefore when I saw this item half price in Superdrug, I thought I'd give it a try. Now I have used it, I'll never go back! Along with my make up looking airbrushed, the staying power is incredible. My make up still looks almost perfect after a long 8 hours day of work!
Next is this stunning face palette by Charlotte Tilbury. I chose the Seductive Beauty palette, which has a smoky eye look, along with a gorgeous bronze and highlighter. Originally I wanted the Natural Beauty palette, as I'm much more of a natural face kinda girl, however, the smoky eye is very subtle, with dark brown shades rather than black. The bronze is what I've been using the most, as you can probably tell by the words being much more worn away than the rest, but I use this palette when I want a quick make up look that doesn't take too long to do.
And finally, is this absolutely beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Matte Lipstick in the shade Legendary Queen. Now, as a lot of you may already know, I am a bit of a red lipstick fanatic. When Charlotte Tilbury released this product, boasting of a deep, neutral wine shade that would compliment all complexions, I had to have it. I have been wearing this shade non-stop for the past month, I absolutely adore it.

Asda Home Decor Must Haves | prettylittlewriter

It has been a little while since I last posted on here, and I wanted to start the new year with something that has a special place in my heart, Home Decor.
More specifically, Asda's home decor.

To me, Asda is one of the best places to shop for your home. I rave about the bedding they have all the time, and to start the year off, they seem to have outdone themselves in other areas of the home too!,default,sc.html
These two stunning bath towel sets are a dream! Blue and yellow shades have always gone really well together, but the natural patterns on these also make them a great pairing! These are 100% on my wishlist to buy in the next couple of months!,default,pd.html
This cushion is absolutely adorable. Again, grey and yellow is a stunning combination, and this reminds me a little bit of Banksy art. Would be perfect on any grey sofa/chair and to add a little pop of colour with it!,default,pd.html

Next up is this copper and cream globe. I like the idea of having unique and different pieces of decor around the home, and copper is one of my favourite things, so this is just perfect!,default,pd.html,default,pd.html
And last but not least, of course I had to mention some bedding! This stunning duvet set and cushion, (which I have already purchased as it was just too lovely not to buy!) is just wonderful. & for £12 for a double set is brilliant.
Asda are known for their great quality and value for money when it comes to their bedding, and this set is no exception.

If you like the look of any of these items, head on over to Asda's website right now to get your hands on them!
