The #LFPamper Beauty Box

This month's Lookfantastic Beauty Box might be my favourite ever. Themed with everything you need for a little pamper session, it is a lovely edition with a great mix of skincare, bodycare, makeup and haircare from some amazing brands. The soft pink packaging is just beautiful too- totally up my street. 

What's Inside

The #LFPamper Box arrived just on time to coincide with my first Autumn cold so I'm appreciating the treats even more, but no matter how in need of a pamper you are, the contents are a real treat. I really think this is the best mix of products Lookfantastic have ever had! 

Laura Geller Pout Perfection Waterproof Lipliner. 
I've seen Laura Geller popping up all over the place and this full size lip liner is an amazing treat. It feels really creamy and the colour is a gorgeous deep red- perfect for the season. 

Mio Skincare Liquid Yoga Bath Soak
This stuff is amazing! I want the full size quite badly. Packed with things like eucalyptus and mint, it smells amazing and is so soothing. Long, hot baths with this are what Autumn evenings are made for, I swear. 

Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel 
I really like Murad products so I'm looking forward to trying this.Who doesn't need a radiance booster in Autumn? I've already given it a good sniff and love the scent too. 

Polaar Lip Balm
This is already a handbag essential for me. It smells great and the texture is just right; rich without being oily, nourishing without being sticky. 

Alterna Caviar Pre Shampoo Treatment
I actually really like hair products like this. I use the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer fairly frequently so I'm intruiged to see how this compares. If it can give my already cold-frazzled hair

Oskia Renaissance Mask. 
This has to be my hero product from the box. It is such a premium brand and this is one of those products I've heard rave reviews about, so I am so glad to finally be able to try it! The adorable little pot has about 2 facemasks worth of product so you can properly try it out too but it smells amazing and leaves the skin looking really soft. 

Have you tried this month's box? What do you think?

Life & Style // An Urban Hike with Regatta

Urban Hike Manchester with Regatta

Over the Summer, Harry and I got into the habit of heading out for walks along the canal and adventuring out into the countryside for some hikes whenever we can. It is amazing how much a good old walk can boost my mood and it has become a really important part of our weekends. Every chance we get, we're going out for a wander.

Regatta got in touch to tell me about their Urban Hike campaign and now I've swapped the countryside for the city. Basically the idea is that you don't need to head to the hills to get waking and enjoying the space around you. They've put together a 5km walk around Manchester, with all of the sights and history to take in along the way.

I totally love this idea; it takes up our evening walks a fair notch and walking around Manchester has made me fall a little bit in love with my city again. If you want to go on your own Urban Hike, there is both a Manchester and a London map you can download for free straight away.

Beauty // A Little Treat

Sometimes, when things are a bit crappy, you just need to treat yourself. And nothing is more of a treat than a beautiful, totally unnecessary, lipstick.

I've wanted something from Charlotte Tilbury for an age; who wouldn't with that rose gold packaging? I swatched a load of the Hot Lips lipsticks a while ago and fell in love with the texture- it is a really rich, satin matte. Then when I saw one had my name on it, I knew that would be the one for me.

One rubbish day at work and one impulse purchase later, this pretty thing is all mine. The perfect bright red, it has just enough of a cool orange undertone for it to feel like a 'cool girl' red rather than a sexy red. Plus, everything from the packaging to the shape of the bullet makes me happy, which makes it totally worth the £23.

Honestly? I feel better already!
