My Top 3 HERO Face Masks Reviews ♥♥

Hey sweetiepies, how are y'all doing? Hope you had a lovely weekend; mine was awesome!
So when I put up my everyday makeup post up, I got a request to do a skincare routine and my skin was looking lush then I even had a no makeup picture on Instagram.
HOWEVER, as soon as that request came in my skin was like 'Time to f**k s**t up' '___' I broke out like crazy all over my forehead and the right side of my face with big juicy and painful spots!!!
I think I know the culprit; I was trying out the Philosophy Oil free Primer and it worked out real good '___'
So this has been my life for the past 2 weeks and I wanted to share what has been helping me through this tough time. To keep your skin looking good and to help reduce breakouts; masks are a must.

The first mask I am going to talk about is the Origins 'Clear Improvement' face mask.
Ok so it says its an activated charcoal mask to clear pores; this is really important as I have combination/oily acne prone skin so it helps to remove any impurities that may have gathered in the pores which can also cause spots. 
 I really like this mask because my skin just feel really soft and clean after I use it.

The second mask is my Sanctuary '5 minute thermal detox mask' and this mask actually heats up when you put it on; just briefly though, it doesn't burn or anything like that.
I love the fact that it is charcoal as well so it deeply cleanses your skin and draws out all impurities and at balances the oils in your skin; this is especially good if you have combination skin.

The last but not least mask is the Body Shop's 'Blue Corn 3 in 1 Deep Cleansing Mask'; this mask has corn in it (as you can probably tell lol) so it has a 3 in 1 property; it cleanses, exfoliates and purifies which is what you need really. I love how it deep cleanses and the exfoliants also allow it to remove any dead skin.

These masks are so many and I use them interchangeably; ideally I should have a mask at least twice a week but sometimes I forget to and sometimes I go for 3 times a week (espescially when I have a break out).The perfect time to use a mask is directly after exfoliating your skin as after exfoliation your pores are open so a mask can be extra effective and draw out any impurities from your pores and remove any dead skin.

I am learning a lot about my skin recently as I have bee working as a skincare consultant for a while now so any requested posts, please let me know and the skincare routine video is coming; I promise!
Wishing you all a lovely week ahead.

My Spring Wishlist ♥♥

Hey dollies, so as a shopaholic I am always wanting to spend and buy new things but here a few of things I am really lusting at the moment. The first thing is the Giorgio Armani Luminous Skin Foundation; I have heard so much about it by bloggers and Amrezy (an amazing MUA) wears it all the time and raves about it. 

 I have been wanting a GHD for ages, I used to own a Remmington one and after it broke I have been on the  hunt for  a GHD and I think the GHD Eclipse Styler is calling my name. I found this amazing website (Hairtrade) that sells GHD a bit cheaper and not just that they sell other brands like Morrocan Oil, TIGI, Babyliss and many more.

 LaModa Uk has been doing it big with their bags and they have a lot of lovely colours for Spring so make sure to check em out.
I have my eyes on the Kevyn Aucoin concealer for a while now and the price is quite off putting (£36 for a little pot) but I have heard it is worth the hype.

Lol now I know I am dreaming for putting a Givenchy bag but doesn't it just look amazing?
Tom Ford Beauty just super luxurious and the lipsticks just look so lush I just want all of them but I'll just settle for one. I have also been looking at their sunglasses and they will be perfect for summer.

Now everyone has been talking about the Nicole for Missguided Collection and I fell in love with all the clothes but my favourite is this black dress and if you haven't looked at the collection take a look and am sure something will catch your eye.
What have you been lusting over recently?

Jerk City Review ♥♥

So as many as you know, I am such a FOODIE so imagine my surprise when I was in London (more specifically Soho) and hungry and I saw Jerk City; I rushed in and made an order before you could say 'but am sure you're on a diet' '__'
Jerk City is a Caribbean restaurant that makes typical Caribbean dishes and of course I ordered the Jerk chicken with Rice and beans. The atmosphere was really nice and welcoming, they had a lot of pictures of famous people who had been there including the likes of Ludacris and Tinchy Stryder.
Now to the food; I was slightly disappointed by the jerk chicken; haven had my fair share of Caribbean food it was rather bland and seemed like they had just put some sauce on the chicken. However, I enjoyed the other bits of my meal and my friend ordered some Oxtail and that was absolutely amazing.
So if you are in Soho and you're tired and hungry, you should definitely pop by them and have some Oxtail or other meals.
P.s. That drink was amazing; if anyone knows where I can get some from, please let me know.
Verdict: 3.75/5

Hope you had a lovely weekend. What are you looking forward to this week? Let me know in the comments below.

All Night Long ♥♥

Skirt ~ Topshop// Cropped Top ~ Bershka// Heels ~ New Look// Coat ~ Warehouse// Clutch bag ~ Matalan

Happy Hump Day loves; the hard bit is over; it's nearly Friday and I really can't wait. Today I am showing the outfit I wore for a dinner date with my girls when I was in London. We went out for a lovely meal at Giraffe (yummy) and it was so fun to catch up.
I wanted to wear my cropped top from Bershka; which isn't too cropped and it's long sleeved so the best of both worlds. I paired it with my midi skirt; this is a darker green version of this one (here).
The heels are from New Look and I must say I love it however it was tight and a tad uncomfortable so my search continues for lace up heels; if you know of any please let me know.
Excuse the bluury pics and the belly; need to get my summer body asap lol
