We All Scream For Ice Cream!!

 Helloooo! I wasn't actually going to do a post this week as I didn't feel like I had prepared anything, but i'm on such a roll with doing blogposts every week and I didn't want to break the cycle!

Anyway, last year, this chain of ice cream parlours popped up all over the place, and last week I visited one for the first time. The parlour has a very 50's retro theme and its such a lovely calm atmosphere to sit with a friend and talk in, it reminds me of a tea room type venue.

The pricing is reasonable, I pain around £5 for a chocolate sundae with caramel sauce and clotted cream which was gorgeous, and we sat in there for around 45 mins. I thought it was really nice and different, a really lovely idea!

Are there ice cream parlours near you? Has a 'Lickety Lick' popped up where you live?

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter

As promised, a new post each Sunday, -I'm doing well, don't you think?
Anyway, I just wanted to talk to you all a little bit about this gorgeous cleansing butter from the body shop, I know my posts seem to be very beauty orientated recently but I'm really enjoying a few new products at the moment so that's what I'm writing about, I think my next post will be lifestyle anyway.

I actually purchased this product after reading Caroline Hirons' blog, I'm sure you're all familiar with her brilliant blog but if not check it out, -I'm sure you'll find it useful, but anyway, while reading her 'dry skin cheat sheet' I actually realised that I should NOT be using a foaming cleanser,
 -apparently they dry out your skin.

I wanted a high street product and this one retails at £12, I honestly cannot stress enough how much I love this product, when I massage it into my skin it dissolves even my waterproof mascara so fast and my skin feels so clean when I've washed it off. No residue is left on my face after and I love using it before bed and in the morning, its not greasy at all and i would probably agree with the description that it is suitable for all skin types, however maybe read Caroline's blog to make sure you find the right product for you!

What kind of cleanser do you use, and how much would you pay for a good cleanser?
 Thanks for reading!

Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Brush Review

Oh my gosh I am so in love with these brushes! I received them as a birthday present on Thursday and just had to share them with you! I know there are already so many reviews out there and I'd  be surprised if you haven't heard of them but I just wanted to share with you why I love them, so here goes!

Rose Golden Luxury Set-€58
The set includes 8 beautiful rose gold coloured 
brushes and a matching travel bag, so not a bad price.  I expected to like the brushes as I've heard so many people talk about them, and I love them! The brushes are a mixture of natural and synthetic fibres and this makes them super soft and also allows fast drying time after they've been washed. I love using the buffing brush with a light foundation that is very liquidy as it is very dense, I didn't get on with it with my NARS, - I think the formula was too thick.

My favourites from the set are the Luxe Soft Definer and the Luxe Petit Crease, they're so fluffy and amazing at blending, I actually prefer them to real techniques! I also love the face shape brush for cream blushes but they're all gorgeous! The only thing that I think this set is missing is a good bronzer brush, there isn't really any that appeal to me to use with bronzer, however other than that they're lovely, and If you are considering investing I would recommend them as I think this set has a good selection of brushes,
 What brushes do you use?
