Nectar & Stone Inspired Chocolates

If you haven’t heard of Nectar and Stone, the chances are that you aren’t on Instagram. If you are, I am almost 100% sure that you will have seen their amazing chocolates and sweet treats beautifying your feed. The wonderful lady behind the Nectar and Stone Instagram creates the most beautiful looking chocolates, cookies, cakes and more for big events and for her own online boutique store. She has a background in fashion and this shines through with the minimalistic yet stunning designs in her baking. Apparently everything that she makes tastes delicious too but as she is based in Australia, I haven’t been able to try anything (much to my dismay).

Drugstore Dupe // Shadow Stick Edition

No7 Stay Perfect Shade and Define shadow stick swatches from left to right – Cool Mink, Velvet Truffle, Black Shimmer, Gunmetal Grey, Coffee Bean, Deep Purple, Pink Pearl, Glistening Ray

Today I am bringing you a post that will hopefully be the start of a new series called Drugstore Dupes. I won’t do this type of post every week because I want to wait until I find things that are truly worth writing about, but when I find the next spectacular lipstick or mascara in the aisles of Boots you will be the first to know. I'm not normally very good at saving money but I do have a skill in finding inexpensive makeup bits that are just as good (if not better) than their counterparts four times the price. Let’s kick off the series with my most recent discovery in the eyeshadow stick world...

Beauty Bits That Multi-Task Better Than Me

Soap and Glory Concealer, Max Factor Crème Puff Blush, Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush

One of my favourite things about buying makeup is finding different ways to use my new beauty bits. I love doing this because I’m such a bargain hunter and I love finding new ways to use products that may not have worked for me initially to get my money’s worth! Here are my top three of these marvellous multi-taskers and how I use them…

The Buried Treasures Of Primark

Primark are killing it at the minute, from their comfy flannel shirts to their Whistles inspired clutches - I want it all. I haven't always found Primark to be great quality but the bits that I have picked up recently are all under a tenner but look and feel much more expensive than they really are. And I have actually been wearing every single item that I purchased which is very rare for me with Primark purchases!
