Hello everybody and welcome back!

It’s been four years since I turned my passion for makeup and fashion into a blog in which I would share my top tips and opinions with the world. Four years later and I’ve learned a lot like; how to stage my photos, how to edit photos, how to pose and how to love myself.

Garnier – Moisture bomb Review

Hi Guys,

I finally got around to trying and reviewing Garnier’s new moisture bomb face mask. I wanted to see what all the hype is about as for me I’ve been using Asian sheet masks for years so they’re nothing new and/or exciting to me although they are very highly regarded in my pamper routines!

You get two sheet masks, a blue mask on top of a white mask. The blue mask is there to help you guide the mask onto your face correctly.

The instructions said to sit back and relax and leave the mask to work for 15 minutes. This mask claims to soothe and hydrate your skin. Your skin is supposed to feel plump and soft as silk after application.

I sat back and read some fashion magazines whilst I let the mask do its job. My favourite magazines right now are Glamour and Cosmopolitan

I personally really enjoyed this mask, my skin felt so soft, glowing and plump after leaving it on for 15 minutes as the instructions directed.

The mask is available from Boots for only £2.99 – well worth the small cost for such a luxurious and gentle feeling mask which really does do as it says on the packaging.

The only downside to this mask that I found was that it was too big for my face, this is a regular issue that I’m aware not only myself struggles with which is a real shame although difficult to fix and every person is different.


Have you tried this mask? What were your thoughts?

See you soon,

Garnier Ultimate Blends Photo Shoot

Hi Guys,

Recently I was lucky enough to win Garnier’s Boots competition where I received a sample of Garnier’s new Ultimate Blends ‘Coconut Water and Aloe Vera range’. I also won the opportunity to attend a photo shoot on Wednesday the 24th of May in order to be the face of the new range which will be featured online and in store at Boots.

It was such a fun day and an amazing opportunity that I will never forget and will always be telling friends and family about! The staff were so friendly and Garnier spoiled me with products and pampering. I felt like a true princess for the day!

The new range includes three new products; Coconut and Aloe Vera, Coconut and Macadamia Nut and Coconut Milk.

– I received the Coconut Water and Aloe Vera range as well as a goody bag after the shoot full of various products that I can’t wait to try!

The new products offer nourishing, lightweight and deliciously smelling shampoos and conditioners ready for summer! I’ve tried the Coconut Water and Aloe Vera range and I could instantly see a difference in how shiny, sleek and weightless my hair was! I would definitely recommend the new range if you struggle with dry and dull hair!

The new products are out in Superdrug next week and Boots the week after or if you can’t wait that long they are available on Amazon!


Look out in Boots stores, website and social media for me and tweet me if you find the pictures from the shoot! I can’t wait for you guys to see the new products and campaign!

Let me know if you try the new range and what you think!

See you guys soon,

Liebster Award

The lovely blogger Sunhny recently nominated me for the Liebster award. I would like to thank her for nominating me for this great award of recognition.

*What is the Liebster award?: The Liebster award is a way of recognising new and upcoming bloggers around the world who have a high quality blog and high follower count. 

I have been given some rules to follow before I answer the following questions:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and include a link to their blog
  • Include the Liebster Award sticker
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger gave you
  • Nominate 5 other bloggers with fewer than 500 followers
  • Ask them 11 questions

Okay, so lets answer the questions then!

What inspired you to start your blog?

I have such a passion for beauty and lifestyle. I follow so many beauty, lifestyle and fashion blogs so I decided to start my own blog sharing beauty and lifestyle tips.

I met the lovely Lily Pebbles at Muji beauty event a few years ago and asked her advice on starting a blog which also pushed me that bit further to go ahead and create my own blog and she is a huge inspiration to me.

High Street or High End?

I am definitely a high street girl.

My dad is Scottish and he always says that he saves money where he can and only pays for what he has to so I guess I take on the trait of not splurging money where unnecessary.

Where are you from?

I live just outside London in Hertfordshire 🙂

Who do you look at for guidance?

If I want advice or guidance I normally go straight to my Mum as we get on very well and I look up to her a lot.

Me and my mum are best friends and I can talk to her about virtually anything. We have a super close bond.

How much time do you spend blogging?

I am constantly thinking about what my next blog post could be but I post new blog posts twice a month.

What is your instagram name?

@LAURENNO_

Why don’t you follow my Instagram to see what Is going on behind the scenes of my blog?

What is your favourite blog post?

My favourite blog post featured on my own blog is my top 5 instagram accounts.

My favourite blog post on another blogger’s website is InTheFrow’s ‘why it’s important to get time away’ blog post which is linked HERE.

Who is your favourite music artist?

My favourite artist at the moment is Ellie Goulding.

I have been listening to her album Halycon Days on repeat.

What is your favourite song/album at the moment?

My favourite song is probably Lush Life by Zara Larsson.

Give one tip to new bloggers.

The first thing people look at when they look at your blog is the simple yet stylish theme that you have.

If your blog has too much information and colour then It can be disorientating!

How successful would you like your blog to become?

I would love my blog to kick of as a career one day so I am hoping it gets very successful one day.

I nominate:

My questions for you:

  1. What inspired you to start your blog

Time for a break…

Hi Guys,

This past weekend someone very close to me sadly passed away. My Granddad had been in hospital for the past three weeks fighting an infection.

I will be taking a few weeks off from blogging due to this. I need time to grieve and say goodbye as well as spending lots of time with my family.

Don’t worry though, I will be back in three weeks with a fresh new blog posts! – Keep an eye on my Facebook page for sneak peeks into my next blog posts.

I really hope everyone understands! 🙂
