*Bourjois Vox Box #VelvetTheLipstick

"A Grateful Heart Is A Magnet For Miracles..."

Yes, I know it's been a very long time since I posted here on my blog-sorry! Long story short, I accidentally broke the Mac I was using and I was hoping it would get fixed however, it can't so we're saving up to get a new one. In the mean time I am going to use my old laptop which is fine it's just a tad slow and anyhow I have so much to catch up on it'll just have to do! 
In this post I am going to be reviewing the 12 Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick collection which I was kindly gifted from Influenster as part of their Vox Box. You have probably seen these all over social media this past month and with good reason too because I am in love with them! 
If you would like to read why then please continue scrolling...

The formula to these lipsticks is extremely smooth and soft. If you have seen any of my posts about these on Instagram or Twitter you will have read that I love how moisturising they are. They feel like you are wearing a lipstick and lip balm at the same time. Due to them being a velvet finish they don't have that very dry, matte feel to them which I find extremely uncomfortable. They do dry down more 'matte' looking throughout the day but they still feel like you wearing a lip balm. 
The lipstick is shaped differently to others on the market as the tip is more pointed. For me I have used this to outline my lips first and then fill in the middle and I do prefer this shape however, it will be interesting to see how well the lipstick keeps this shape after multiple uses.

I would say out of the 12 shades here I would definitely wear at least 9 of them. There is a shade for everyone and although some of them look similar to one another, you can see from the swatches they have different undertones. I would love to see them add more nude shades as the lightest colour here #1 'Hey Nude' really doesn't suit me but, I do love wearing the pinks for every day. I am really looking forward to wearing #11 'Berry Formidable' with a super Autumnal outfit, the red berry shade would look perfect with a tartan scarf I have!

I don't really have anything negative to say, the only thing I will say is that they cost approx £9 each. Now I know that isn't crazy expensive and yes I do own lipsticks that cost more than that however, I usually spend around £5-£6 on high street lipsticks. The good thing about it being a high street brand though is that there are always deals and offers on!

Please let me know if you want to know more about these lipsticks and I will happily answer any questions you may have.

Much love as always,

*My First Health & Fitness Post Featuring USN...

"Get Healthy For Yourself. It's About You, Not Others..."

I have wanted to incorporate some sort of 'Health & Fitness' into my blog for ages! I enjoy going to the gym and I love creating healthy meals and snacks and I have finally decided to share that on my blog. If you follow me on Instagram you will notice that I have been putting my workouts on my IG Stories and also showing you some very easy snack ideas. In this post I will be showing you some fab products I have been trying out from USN.
So if you'd like to know more then please carry on scrolling...
First up we have a product that at first I honestly didn't think I'd get on well with but I actually love it! This is B4 Burn pre workout which gives you that extra boost you may need before your gym or workout session. Now the reason I didn't think i'd get on well with this is because I've tried something like this in the past and all it did was make me really shakey! This however, does not make me shakey or jittery it just really gives me the energy to get through a workout and continue running when normally i'd probably just give up. I take this 30 minutes before I workout and I actually use half a scoop instead of the recommended full scoop because that is enough for me plus, it tastes like pink lemonade! 
Next up I have been drinking this delicious Vanilla Cinnamon Bun Whey Protein. Yes, vanilla cinnamon bun flavour! Previously, I have never been able to drink protein shakes mixed with just water but I can actually drink this one because it's so tasty. After I get in from my workout I have been having 1 shake mixed with water to help with repair and recovery of my muscles.

Here we have some Chocolate Brownie low carb delite protein bars. If I know I am going to the gym later on in the day then I will have one of these as snack. They are super filling and i'd rather reach for one of these than a normal chocolate bar as they contain protein and other ingredients which are more beneficial. Protein bars i've tried in the past can be quite dry and bland but these bars have a bit of a crunch to them and pack a lot of flavour! 
They also have a strawberry cheesecake flavour which I really want to try.
Finally, USN definitely took the time to have a read through my blog and Instagram because they sent me a very pink shaker! I mean there isn't too much that I can say about a shaker but i've had no spillages with it and it's easy to clean.

Drinking shakes and learning about protein can seem a little intimidating to start with and it's not for everyone. However, the USN team are really helpful and their website is so easy to navigate through. If you are looking to up your gym game then i'd definitely recommend having a browse through their website, I know that their products have made me excited to start each workout no matter how much I am out of breath at the end of it and look like a tomato!

I hope that you have enjoyed this new type of post and keep your eyes peeled for some workout ideas coming soon.

Much love, 

Jade x
