The Lipgloss That Every Unicorn Lover Needs*

In the makeup world, there's a lot going on and a lot to keep up with. Luckily, once a product is "discovered" its set in stone, e.g. eye shadow is eye shadow it just comes in different formulas/colours. So lets talk about a beauty staple that I've really only rated for the past year or so.

Lip gloss... You either love it or you hate it. Now if I can get a decent formula, I love lip gloss. As long as it's not toooo sticky. When I was younger, I hated lip gloss... I hated how it felt, how it looked, everything. I've always been a big matte lip lover so to discover lip gloss again was quite a big deal for me. But really, I've found that rather then just plastering your lips in lip gloss, popping a bit on top of a lip look can be a beautiful finale to any makeup look! With Valentines day around the corner, the lip gloss you're about to read about is perfectly pink for the occasion and your lips are going to be smelling good enough to eat all day/night.

>Available here!<

The guys at Instant Beauty Fix have given birth to a beautifully clever titled lip gloss. Unicorn Snot... Seriously, thinking about it now, I don't understand how no one ever thought of this one before. Come on, has there ever been such an appropriate name for a product? 

Seriously, this is every pink lovers dream. The colour itself is a great fuchsia pink and its filled with beautifully bright glitter - reflective pinks, purples, silvers. It's so pretty and easy on the eye. Next up can we talk about the scent. This bad boy is candyfloss scented. That's right, it's described as candyfloss scented and is actually candyfloss scented. Often scented lip gloss' fail to smell like their description and leave you with a boring plastic-y smell but not this one. This stuff is good enough to eat. I encouraged my brother to smell it and it was a struggle to get it back...

I love this lip gloss, it's going to be the beautiful hint of sparkle that I need this Valentines day and I'm hoping my other half will be able to smell its sweet scent across the table all evening. Unfortunately there was 1 thing about this product that let me down, and that has to be the packaging! It just reminds me of the lip gloss' I'd use when I was 13, a cheap tube to put in my back pocket so I could apply 7 coats of it on the bus. However, I suppose with this transparent tube at least you can see how beautiful it really is and the product is pretty eye catching. If I walked past this in a store, it would catch my eye! 

Unicorn Snot comes in 5 pretty colours (maybe they all have different scents as well?) - Pink, Green, Gold, Purple and Silver. They're all super pretty but my inner girly girl can't get enough of this pretty pink one! Why not add a little sparkle to your Valentines day this year and treat yourself to a tube of Unicorn Snot? (I never thought I'd ever say that!) - you'll be the glittery-est Belle at the ball!

Make Your House A Home With Photowall*

Interior design is different for us all. We all have different tastes, styles and opinions. Some of us want bright yellow kitchens, others want an under the sea themed bathroom, heck, my mum decorated our old toilet green with frog tiles! However your home is decorated, its (usually) how you like it. This year, me and D are planning quite a big move so we're going to have a lot of house to make home! So when Jennifer from Photowall contacted me about collaborating, I jumped at the chance - thanks Jennifer!  

Photowall are a company based in Sweden (with a stunning website), who specialise in canvas prints and wall murals. Both of which can be personalised! So you can either choose from one of the many designs they have to offer (seriously, there's 100's!), or blow up your own photos! I decided to go down the canvas route, just because I didn't want to be putting up a mural and having to leave it behind in a few months time! Ordering is insanely easy. Once you've decided what you really want, you can then chose the size (pricing depends on this) and any framing options. Delivery is also super quick, I was initially going to wait around 8 days for its arrival (long wait due to the weekends) but it arrived on day 5 via signed for delivery! 

Now I must admit, what arrived was not what I was expecting. I had in fact opted for a DIY frame and was incredibly put out when the DIY project arrived on my door step. But, once I got the box open, it was quick, simple and idiot proof. I simply had to stick on some pieces, screw in some screws and that was that. I think it took about 5 minutes to assemble - if that?! Once assembly was complete, we finally turned the canvas over to appreciate its beauty. It's a really strong print, the colours are lovely and vibrant, and the detail of the photo is great. 

We went with one of the Photowall designs rather then a personalised one, and we thought that this kind of thing will look great once hung in the kitchen/diner wherever we end up! 
As well as this gorgeous print, photowall also gave me a 20% discount code if any of you are interested in making an order, so if you do find yourself browsing their website, make sure you add the code LoveLibbyCampaign2018 to your basket at checkout! The code is only good for the next 30 days so get shopping!

 A big thank you again to Jennifer at Photowall. This has been a great opportunity to work together and it took me about 59993828 hours to finally choose what I wanted! Although this product was gifted to me, all opinions are my own and not influenced by anyone else.

The 2 perfumes you need right now!*

Aloha loves, happy 2018 and all that chizzz... It's a new year and i'm finally back with my first post of 2018! What better to review then these pretty perfumes by So...? Fragrance. You may have read my post from last year (or maybe you haven't, whatever...) about the body mists that So...? came out with, you can read that post here! Now they're back with some beautiful perfumes - this brand just knows exactly how to up their game at the perfect time. 

Growing up, So...? were always the go to brand for all things "smelly". Every 14 year old at my school had the latest body spray that was on offer in Superdrug at the time, and anyone caught using the then rival, Charlie Red/Charlie Blue would be laughed at. Who would have ever thought all those years ago that So...? would still be killing the game getting bigger and badder as the years went on?! 

Anyway, I could literally sit here and get nostalgic all day but you'd get bored way before I do. So yeah, So...? Fragrance have released their most current brain wave, the eau de parfum. It's been a long time coming (in my opinion) but these baby's were worth waiting for! 

So...? Hooked me up with 2 different scents from this range and I am seriously obsessed. First things first, did you notice that packaging?! It gorgeous. Each glass bottle is housed in a sturdy cardboard box which are both eye catching and enticing. The rectangular bottles are a strong glass that you'd get from much dearer brands, and like the body mists come decorated with a pretty but sophisticated graphic that appears to take over the whole bottle (I know it doesn't, it's just how it looks).

I Am So...? Is the perfect everyday fragrance. I use this most days before I leave for work and the amount of people that have asked me what I'm wearing is crazy. Most of them can't believe its not a "high end" brand! With top notes of green pear, mandarin and bergamot mixed with orange blossom and peony, this is a fruity but subtle fragrance that you could wear on any occasion. Its staying power is great and a few spritz' lasts me the whole day - that's impressive as it is as I have quite an active & practical job.

So...? Sheer Illusion is quickly becoming one of my faves in my perfume collection. Again, with top notes of mandarin and bergamot, but this time mixed with rose and jasmine, this is the perfect girly scent. Perfect for an evening out with the other half or cocktails with friends. Again, the bottle is bloody beautiful and I think i'm going to re-buy this for the rest of my life just because of how easy it is on the eye! Although it's top notes are similar to that of I Am So...?, the fragrance is so different. This is much flirtier and has a bit more character. 

Did I mention... These beauties are only £6.99 at Boots?! I don' think I can cope with the bargain. I'm not a maths or science whiz, but I can say that these bottles go a long way. I've been using them at least every other day for the last month and I've got plenty left. Not only that, my colleagues have spritzed them, my friends have, and even my mum has! Can you really go wrong with a bargain that goes such a long way?! 

Re-live your teens but add a twist, go back to that isle of Boots, look at the So...? products, slay the fucking day away and pick these up. You won't regret it, and your inner hormonal teen will be happy for another 10 minutes. (Is any teen actually happy for longer then 10 mins at a time? I wasn't). There are currently 4 scents in the range so here's hoping that So...? are planning to expand - even more!
