The Liquid Lipstick Selection

Anyone that knows anything about the beauty world will know how much the liquid lipsticks have risen and over the last 6 months I have definitely fallen hook, line and sinker for them.  I believe it was Anastasia Beverley Hills that started the trend off and other brands have subsequently followed suit.

As soon as I see a new brand bringing out a liquid lipstick I immediately pick it up, especially the drugstore ones which I find to be exceptionally good.  My favourites that I have tried so far have to be:

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipstick

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colour

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer

NYX Soft Matte Lip

Anastasia Beverley Hills

I'll be honest, I haven't actually bought any of the ABH liquid lipsticks because I can't find them stocked anywhere in the UK.  Please if you know anywhere I can get them without paying a hefty tax fee from the US let me know!  Otherwise I will have to wait until I visit the US in September where I will probably buy the whole range!

Which are your favourite liquid lipsticks?

Pale Blue

Pale blue seems to be everywhere right now and it definitely has my full attention.  To be honest, I'm more of a bright colours kind of girl but I've surprised myself this year with buying lots of white and pale blue pieces.  I recently bought the most beautiful pale blue lace dress from New Look which is an exact dupe for Self Portrait.  

I wore it to my friend's wedding a few weeks ago and it looked lovely, even if I say so myself!  I had so many compliments.  It also came in white but I didn't want to wear white to a wedding..  Today I've rounded up some of my favourite pale blue pieces out there at the moment.  Zara have soooo many to choose from AND a lot of them are now on sale.. GO GO GOOOO!!

How do you feel about pale blue?

Be In My Girl Gang - Kayla Itsines London Bootcamp

For those of you that don't know Kayla Itsines.. DO YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK?!  Okay so let me explain, she's like this really amazing fitness blogger from Australia who has an amazing community of BBG Girls all over the world which stem from her BBG (bikini body guides) that she sells helping people to workout, get fit and healthy.

I've followed her for a long time on Instagram now and have definitely talked about her on the blog before.  So when I saw she was coming to London to do a bootcamp, naturally I had to get tickets.  So this Saturday I headed up to Kensington Olympia with my yoga mat, water bottle and about 5,000 other girls (and one boy I think!) to #SweatWithKayla.

If you've read any of my fitness posts before you'll know I'm quite the fanatic.  I work out almost every day so I'd say my fitness levels were pretty good.  However, they were definitely tested on Saturday.  It was one of the hardest workouts I've ever done BUT it felt soooo amazing afterwards and was so much fun.  Her guides are only 28 minutes too so can easily be incorporated into a busy lifestyle.

Tobi (her partner) did a really inspiring speech before the workout saying how proud he is of the BBG Community and everything it stands for.  How it was always his and Kayla's goal to bring girls together and support each other.  After the workout they gave out freebies and then we all queued up to have our photos taken with Kayla.

It was such a good day.  I can't wait for next year already!

Have you tried BBG?
