Monthly Roundup | May

It's coming to the end of May, however it literally feels like 5 minutes ago when I was writing my April Monthly Roundup, for me this month has been a complete whirlwind & has passed in no time at all!
Even though I've been really busy, the majority of I've been doing is the most mind numbing boring tasks, which I know you don't want to read about - However, there has been three pretty amazing things happen this month though in the world of xclaireabella...

We went on holiday!

After not having a getaway break since this time last year, we decided a holiday was exactly what the Doctor ordered. We found an excellent late deal on Hoseasons for a 4 night stay at Griffon Forest Lodges in York. It was amazing just to relax & get away from it all - No internet, no phones - It's was exactly what we needed... The hot tub was just a bonus!

We got a puppy!

Say hello to our beautiful girl, Willow! We've always wanted a puppy for as long as we both can remember & now she's here it's absolutely amazing. Willow's just over 9 weeks old & has brought so much laughter & excitement to our lives, I love waking up & seeing her pounce over with that 'I'm an excitable puppy' look in her eyes - It's just the best!

We got the keys to our new home!

Gahhh - This has been such an annoyingly long time coming! We've been saving our deposit for a house now for three years, which is long enough but with the mortgage application taking an extra twelve weeks it's been so time consuming & draining. Now it's finally here though we've got that last slog this weekend of moving everything from our flat to the house. Wish us luck!! (Images are to follow as the house looks like a bombs gone off at the moment! There's stuff everywhere & we're literally living out of cardboard boxes - It's all fun and games though!)

Because of the move it'll probably take a little while for xclaireabella to get fully up an running again - But I'll be back! I'm even thinking of having a schedule! Woooaahh!

Beauty | Zoeva Lip Crayons

After chatting with Emma from Just Emma recently about cruelty free make up, and in particularly about lusting after the CF Zoeva  lip crayons, I decided I needed to invest in some shadesI'll be honest, I don't know a massive amount about cruelty free makeup or which brands to buy from to ensure natural cosmetics, but Emma's an oracle of information about the subject so it was nice finding out more information. Definitely check her blog out for more tips & tricks, she's fab!

I've heard everybody & their nana raving about the Zoeva brushes, but cosmetics wise I hadn't read an awful lot, so I was really looking forward to these arriving & knowing they're cruelty free makes them that little bit more rewarding.

The first thing that surprised me with these products was the price. I picked these up from Beauty Bay at £5.95 each which I thought was a complete  bargain - For some reason I thought Zoeva products were mega expensive, I'm not sure why, but how wrong I was!
The packaging's super duper sleek with a simplistic black & white outer. The product itself looks like a standard, chubbier style lip crayon & mirrors the monochrome packaging. I'm not normally a fan of standard lip crayons, I much prefer they style where the product twists up without having to sharpen it, but obviously these type of designs come with higher end, more pricey products, so I can't complain too much.

I opted for shades sweet heat (left) & second chance (right) which are both between a coral pink and a nude colour. Looking back now, I shouldn't have chosen shades as similar as these two are, as you can see below, but oh well. You ca never have too many lip products right?

The application of this product is sensational - They're super duper buttery & creamy and feel really hydrating on the lips. I honestly don't think I've tried a lip product so refreshing, it's amazing. 
There is a slight tackiness with the product that kicks in a couple of minutes after applying, however this wears away in no time so it isn't a mega turn off, but it's certainly an odd feeling.
The crayon lasts a long time of the lips - It needs reapplying I'd say, every four or five hours which is surprisingly good going for a product as buttery as this.

I'm really impressed with these products & knowing that they're cruelty free makes them that bit better. It's really got me thinking about the makeup products I've previously been using & how they've been produced.

Have you tried any of the Zoeva cosmetics products before? What else should I try?

Lifestyle | Meet Willow

This week something bloody amazing happened!... We got a puppy!! *Insert ridiculously girlie scream here!!* Dan & I have wanted a dog for honestly, as long as I can remember, but because we've been living in a flat two storeys up we thought it'd be pretty difficult & unfair on a newborn. 
However!...We're moving house this week into very our own home  with a garden & let's be honest, we didn't really need an excuse to buy a fricken adorable puppy, but that's what we're blaming it on!

From being a little girl I've always wanted a beagle, there's just something about the breed that really struck a chord with me. Maybe it's the colouring, maybe it's the super duper long ears, maybe it's the naughtiness, maybe it's all three - Who knows? But I love 'em!!
We put a lot of research into getting our little beagle pup & this is where we discovered the Lemon Beagle. As far as I was aware beagles were black, white & tan (tri-coloured) I had no idea a Lemon Beagle even exsisted, but let me tell you, my heart melt when I saw them! 
Still keeping the typical beagle pattern, Lemon Beagles have a white, caramel, tan colouring - In other words, they're flipping beautiful!! I knew we had to have one!!

We used pets 4 homes to search for our perfect companion which is a really helpful & easy website to use. By the looks of it you can advertise pretty much any animal for sale which is cool. After a few hours of searching (it didn't take long at all) we found the most adorable 8 week old pup!

Meet Willow...

There was only Willow & 1 of her sisters left when we went to visit, so it was absolutely heart breaking choosing between them & breaking them up. Luckily for us the other pup was being collected a couple of hours later, making light of the situation.

We've had Willow for three days now & even though she's been a little bit naughty (which we can totally look past, because she's so young) she's been unbelievably good! She seems to have settled really well & has almost (barring the sofas) differentiated between what's hers & what's ours in the home. 
We've gone straight in with toilet training because it's something we thought would take a really long time for her to master, plus we didn't really know how to do it. Eeek! Surprisingly however, she's picking it up rather quickly! We've given her a specific toilet area, with newspaper down on the floor & she's really taken to it. She's still having a few accidents, every now and again, but what she's learnt so far is amazing, we're really impressed with her. 
We've found out after bringing her home, that beagle's are supposedly renowned for being quick learners so I think we've got a good'un!

Willow hasn't had her full injections yet, so we can't properly take her out unfortunately. We're hoping to get booked in at the vets this week so she can have both sets of injections & then start going for walkies. All in all, it'll be another 4 weeks before she can go outside properly which feels like absolutely ages away at the moment - Hopefully it won't take too long!
At the moment Willow is really snuggly - I think she's used to having her brothers & sisters around to cuddle into! Once she gets cosy, she can literally sleep for 80% of the day & loves snuggling into cushions, throws & pillows which is the most adorable thing! She looks ridiculously cute with her long white ears flopping down over her eyes!! Argh - I could just eat her!! She's so bloody beautiful. 

I'm thinking of of creating a series on xclaireabella based around Willow. Let me know your thoughts? Dan & I like to get out & about and explore the local countryside anyway so this could be a good excuse to get some amazing puppy based photography.

Have you got any tips for training a new pup? We'd love any tips & tricks you've got!

Interiors | Moroccan Inspired Bedroom

If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know that next week we'll be (eventually) moving house. Woohoo!.. And with a new house comes that ridiculously exciting task of interior decorating. Even more woohoo!
Being a qualified Interior Designer, it sounds strange but I've found it sooo difficult to come up with ideas for our home. I find designing interiors for clients so much easier than deciding upon a design for myself purely because I'm so picky - I'm literally the worst customer! I'm narrowing it down though, slowly but surely - Here's a room I'm certain on.

Welcome to my Moroccan inspired bedroom.

In the flat we're living in currently our bedroom is half way there to being Moroccan themed, so we don't need to fork out and arm & a leg to complete the desired look. We have the vast majority of trinkets however because our current landlady doesn't allow us to wallpaper or paint the walls, the look isn't totally complete. We're (I say we, but it's my way or the highway lets be fair) planning on making a feature wall with this fantastically printed Julien Macdonald wallpaper(1) & painting the surrounding three walls in Valspar's mystic mocha(6) to keep the space light & airy. The rest of the items we already have which is a massive bonus for our bank accounts

1. Julien Macdonald Jewel Wallpaper
2. Homes Direct 365 Black Lacquer Storage Box
3. Royal Furnish Elephant Throw
4. Yellow Sunrise Hanging Lanterns
5. George Home Purple Bedding
6. Valspar Mystic Mocha
7. The Range Candle Holder
8. Argos Normandy Bedside Cabinet

What do you think of this look? I'll be posting before & afters in the next couple of weeks.

Beauty | Esqido False Eyelashes*

I used to really dig fake eyelashes when I turned 18 (all those many moons ago) & started going on nights out, getting all dressed up & being all glam, trying to impress the male population. I really loved the effect they had on my eyes & it felt amazing to have lovely long fluttery lashes. I went through a stage of wearing them quite repeatedly & to be honest I'm not entirely sure why I stopped. I haven't worn falsies for at least four/five years now & quite frankly the thought of applying them now seems like such a chore.

When my inbox pinged with a message from Esqido asking if I wanted to try their fake lashes I jumped at the chance. For me there's something so reminiscent about fake lashes, wearing them takes me right back to my younger days, enjoying cocktails with friends & dancing on tables - Those were the days! I also wanted to test myself, just to check whether I'd lost the skill of applying falsies, because we all know it's not the easiest task in the world!

Esqido isn't a brand I'd heard of before, maybe because of my recent laziness when it comes to false lashes, but after having a browse on their website I knew I was in for a fantastic experience. The first thing that stood out to me was the price - Call me stingy, but I used to buy the Eyelure lashes which came in under £10 and after noticing the Esquido false eyelashes range from £25 to £32 I had high expectations. The concept behind Esqido's mink eyelashes is that they're much more lightweight, more comfortable & really natural looking - One of those 'my lashes but better' (& it pains me to write that) type falsies. I was lucky enough to receive the 'Unforgettable' mink false eyelashes, a gorgeous set of super long, winged lashes.

The first thing that shone out to me, signifying the price difference, is the packaging. How beautiful is this packaging! Although I'm a sucker for a well packaged beauty product, for me it's not the be all & end all of a cosmetic. There's a lot of brands nowadays that are incorporating the ever growing copper trend into their products, and even though I do think it's a little repetitive the metallic background reflects the lashes brilliantly & I think it works really well in creating a brand for Esqido.

The look these lashes provide is fantastic! I'd forgotten how fabulous wearing false lashes felt & these from Esqido were no exception. Once on they instantly made me feel all glamorous & princess like which was fantastic. They make my face appear so much more feminine & I really love the overall appearance of these lashes. The lashes feel really delicate & are probably the most lifelike feeling false eyelashes I've tried - To me this really made a difference & gave a much softer look.
These lashes are ridiculously long! I needed to cut a good quarter of the strip off before I could apply them to my lids without them looking silly. But maybe I've got weirdly small eyes, who knows?
The application process was really easy! Esqido don't provide any lash glue, which really narked me, luckily I had some spare adhesive lying in my makeup bag, otherwise I would have been seriously peeved. Again maybe I'm being stingy, but because the price of Esqido's false eyelashes is so high I would have thought a lash glue would be included. Please tell me if this is just me? (Esqido have later told me this is something they're looking into incuding with each false lash pack.)
The false eyelashes felt really heavy on my lids after applying - Admitently this did wear off after a bit of time & after I could get used to the weight but it really surprised me how heavy my lids felt after applying the false eyelashes.

Esqido lashes claim to last up to 25 uses, so these will be my go to lashes for any special occasions coming up. I love the look of these lashes & truth be told I can see why they're a pricier false lash however if I was to buy any more in the future I'd probably stick to Eyelure, purely from a price perspective.

Have you tried any of the Esqido lashes before? What are your thoughts on their products?

Lifestyle | Getting Away From It All

Where have I been?... It really takes a lot to get me stressed, but (& I'm sure you'll agree) there comes a point after working continuous 40 hour weeks where your brain slowly begins to frazzle. 
The pressure of buying our first house together (mainly because we don't know what we're doing) has really taken it's toll on Dan & I. And after just over two months of the buying process, we're very nearly homeowners, we can see the light & the end of the tunnel now & it's finally getting to the stage where we can get giddy about having those precious little keys in our hands!
Miraculously finances have worked in our favour & we had a little bit of left over money to treat ourselves with, which was amazing... Hence a no phones, no internet, no stress break to Griffon Forest Lodges.

The lodges are set in Griffon Forest (Duh) just outside of York, which was a perfect location for us as it's only an hours drive from home. We've stayed in a similar lodge before so we kind of had an idea on what to expect, but how this one differed massively is just how outdoorsy & close to the woodlands the lodges are. Surprisingly there are over 50 lodges on the complex, but because each lodge is privatised in its' own little woodland setting, you wouldn't have a clue. It's so peaceful & serene.
The lodges are decorated in a typical log cabin style, heaps of pine & tonnes of cosy fabrics to snuggle up with. 
Griffon Forest Lodges have everything you could ever want, basically they're the most stunning homes from home... Only with a hot tub! 
Gahh I miss that hot tub already, it was amazing.

We decided to get out & about, and explore as much countryside as possible  and even though we forgot our flask we took both our butts on an 8 mile hike. 
We walked from a teeny tinny (& pretty creepy) village called Thixendale (sorry if you live in Thixendale) right over the valleys to Wharram Percy, an aincent village with the most beautifully ruined church. 
I love finding hidden treasures like this! I think people underestimate how beautiful the UK can be.

We also spent a day at Castle Howard, which in all honesty I'm still not 100% what it is, or who it belonged to, but let me tell you something - It's bloody stunning! With over 2000 acres of surrounding woodland & gardens as well as the actual house itself you could literally spend all day there. I'm really into architecture & interior design yet it was the outside space that blew me away - It's certainly given me ideas for my own garden in the new house... Even though we have nowhere near the amount of space!

We spent an amazing, blissful five days in the lodge which is exactly what the doctor ordered. We were out exploring most days (I didn't want to bombard you with scenery photos) so it actually feels like it's been a really tiring week, especially on my little legs, but it's been fantastic. 
Perfect to get away from it all, forget about the house stress, the social media pressures & get back to basics... Not that a hot tub's a basic, but you know what I mean.

I'm sure I'll be back blogging regularly in the next week or so, but for now I'm just going to chill out and relax & more importantly wish I was still in the tub!

Beauty | The Body Shop Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment*

One thing that I've been suffering with recently is horribly dry & brittle nails, and I'm completely not down for that, especially now it's getting warmer. I want to start painting them all lovely bright & pastel colours, but I can't because of how heavily damaged they are.
It sounds silly, but working in HSamuels' and having to open & close the tiniest of jewellery clasps all day long, has really taken it's toll on my nails. The tips have become ridiculously brittle & have regularly been snapping off... Which I'm sure you agree is not a great look!

I attended The Body Shop White Rose event recently where I was gifted with the Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment, which was a lovely surprise that came at the most perfect time.

I didn't really know what to expect from this product, I've always heard fantastic reviews from the Vitamin E range but admittedly I was dubious on what sort of effect it'd have on my nails. I had that awful feeling they were going to be too bad to repair.

The scent is very clean and refreshing & lasts a long time on the hands. It's not overly perfumed, which I quite like & in an odd way it feels like it's doing more good. The formula is light & not greasy in the slightest, which can often be a worry when it comes to lotions & potions. It's really quite smooth & sinks into the skin beautifully. 
The pastel pink packaging is the perfect size for popping in your handbag so you can top up during the day.
The tube squeezes out a tad too much product than needed with one pump, you only need a pea size amount so don't be too heavy handed with the product.

As a hand cream I thought the Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment worked brilliantly, it left my skin feeling so soft & supple & I definitely noticed a difference after using this over the week. It left my hands with a much brighter, healthier appearance. As well as suffering with damaged nails, I often get flaky bits of skin around my cuticles (I hope I'm not alone here). It can be pretty painful & sometimes causes bleeding which is really annoying, but this product has really improved the appearance of all that grossness! They're very nearly, almost healed (maybe I need to stick with the product a bit longer) and my hands look so much better. The difference that the Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment has made is amazing! My nails have also seen a vast improvement! Bizarrely they seem to have taken on a different texture, they feel much silkier and smoother now & have a bit more of a pinker colour to them. However most importantly my nails haven't broken since using the Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment, which has been flipping fantastic!... So the product has really impressed me - I'll definitely be restocking this beaut.

Have you tried this product or anything else from the Vitamin E range?

Fashion | Pink & Gold

Even though the weather hasn't been majorly up to scratch here in Leeds, I've been really feelin the Summer vibes. The weather's got a complete mind of its' own down here, it changes literally hour by hour, so you really need to be prepared for the worst when you're setting off for work on a morning... Today however, I'm feeling particularly risky!

It's not very often that my pasty white pins come out, but when they do I'm always wearing a midi. I don't feel comfortable in mini skirts any more or teeny tiny skater style dresses, I'm just not down for having that much of my flesh on show. I feel much classier in a midi, and now I'm getting older (not that 24 is that old) I think this style will see me through for years to come. 

Because the H&M midi skirt is a super girlie pastel pink with flecks of gold in I thought I'd pick these two colours & style my outfit from there. I really love the fit of this skirt, it's really structured & leaves me feeling all femenine & princess-like, all I need now is a diamond tiara! 
Over the simple crisp white shirt (because I'v been loving a shirt recently) is a super old school Topshop bolero style hot pink blazer. I always forget I have this jacket, I seem to wear it to death & then forget about it for a few months, but now I'm fully back on the scene! I think the complete contrast in color shades works well together. 
The shoes are new, but I think they're a love it or hate it type shoe. I'm still not sure myself to be honest, but there was something there, something that drew me to them, so I thought why the heck not... I'll only regret it later if I didn't snap these babies up!

This outfit is a tad out of my comfort zone I have to say (mainly due to the socks & sandals combo) but I think it's great to do that every now and again. Think outside the box & do something different. Life is way to short to be boring with fashion.

What do you think of todays look? Is there any styles you've been scared to try, but when you have you've completely loved them?

Beauty | Bank Holiday Pamper Night

It's a bank holiday weekend, and whilst most 24 year olds' will be getting glam, ready for a night on the tiles, I'm cosied up at home in my jim-jams preparing for a pamper night.
Quite frankly, I wouldn't have it any other way... I do enjoy a night out, but after a while I think they can get a bit samey, going to the same bars, seeing the same people - I'd much prefer a bit of 'me' time, buffing & polishing myself up again to feel all lovely. 

I always start a pamper night with a luxurious, lush induced bath. I'm pretty stocked up at the moment with Lush bath bombs & bubble bars, so I've got my pick of goodies. Tonight I've used the appropriately named, Space Girl bath bomb! I've not used this one before & I've been really looking forward to trying it. It's perfectly sweet with hints of popping candy & turns you bath the most delicious burnt orange colour. It's a really impressive bath bomb & I'm boldly going to say it's probably my favouite bath bomb of all time! It's really converted me after only one use. It's unbelievable!
I normally have a soak with my laptop propped up on the toilet seat watching the latest series or my favourite youtubers. At the moment I'm watching Pretty Little Liars, I'm three quarters of the way through series 5 & it's getting so freakin juicy! Who is A!! I need to know!! Gahh!!

I soak in the tub for a good half an hour or so before actually lathering myself in any form of product. I'm using The Body Shops' Fuji Green Tea Shower Gel which has the most delicious, invigorating scent that leaves you feeling super duper refreshed. I always use a scrunchie with bath products as I think it makes the product last so much longer, and the exfoliant part is just a bonus! I use this product on my face too (even though I'm not sure if i should - Answers on a postcard please) to try and break down some of the makeup I've been wearing throughout the day.

I then indulge my locks with a bit of loving! I've been using Garniers' ultimate blends honey treasures, along with an Avon morrocan argan oil treatment which really restores moisture back into my tresses. The longer my hair getting the more I need to look after it & this combination seems to work perfectly. I try and leave the Avon morrocan argan oil on for as long as possible, usually when shaving my legs, just because I think the longer you can leave it, the better job it'll do. If I had a lie in the next day I'd be tempted to leave this on overnight as well, wrapped up in cling film.

Now for the second cleanse! I'm a huge fan of the Garnier Micellar Water & use this to sweep away any left over makeup. I've only been using this over the last six months & I really can't imagine not having it on my dresser - It's fantastic! I tone with the Simple Kind to Skin Facial Toner, this helps even out my complexion & completely refresh my skin. I've also recently discovered the Environ AVST1 moisturiser, from a blogger event I attended a few months ago. It's bloody brilliant & has become a firm favourite in my skin care routine.

To moisturise the rest of my body I've been using The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Sorbet which has the weirdest texture, but it works so so well, and the smell is just divine! The sorbet sinks into the skin ridiculously fast, so you can put your pj's on pretty sharpish, instead of hopping around in the nud for ages. My skin isn't overly dry at the moment, but I find using a thicker moisturiser like Soap & Glory's The Righteous Butter on my elbows & knees works wonders, so tend to pop this on for added hydration.

And after all that pampering it's time for a cup of tea & some biscuits!

What products do you incorporate into your pamper nights? Is there anything you couldn't live without?

Beauty | Top Three Summer Pink Blushers

I'm writing todays' post about summer cosmetics on what seems like the gloomiest, rainiest, all round most miserable May morning! It seems like a complete oxymoron, but I'm still hopeful that Mr. Sunshine's going to show his pretty little face some time soon... He'd better do anyway! 

The little bit of sunshine that we have had recently (I know i'm clutching at straws here) has inspired me to ditch the contoured, vampy, autumnal look for something much fresher & more dewy... Obviously with all that summery goodness comes the summer pink blush!

Fashionista - Rose Glow
I actually received this blush as part of a Leeds White Rose goodie bag a couple of weeks ago, so I see this as my 'treat blusher'. I've not actually heard of the brand Fashionista before, but from what I can gather they're a bit like Makeup Revolution & MUA in the sense that they're a budget based drugstore brand. I'm all for budget makeup, so I was really looking forward to sweeping this little beauty across my cheeks. Rose Glow is a really warm toned matte pink shade so it leaves the cheeks with a really nice rosy glow. It isn't the most pigmented of pinks but I actually quite like that about this blush, it's perfect for the days when I'm wearing a bb cream or a tinted moisturiser. I'm going to be switching to those pretty soon, rather than a foundation. I like to wear a really light, sheer base layer when it gets a bit warmer so this blush will work perfectly for then. The packaging of the Fashionista blush looks pretty basic, but there's a little genius hack to it, you can actually pop the pan out of the black casing & make up your own palette with these products. Essentially you could mix & match eye shadows & blushers & make your own travel palette, which would be brill!

Bourjous Little Round Pot Blusher - Lilas D'or
I'm pretty sure this is the first blusher I've ever owned! Not literally this pot, but the range definitely. I couldn't tell you what it was that first attracted me to this Bourjois beauty but the formula's just so good that I couldn't not repurchase again & again. I think it's nice sometimes to stick with what you know - I know this range of blush is the absolute bomb, so I'm going to bloody well stick with it! Lilas D'or is a lovely typical pink colour with an ever so slight shimmer to the baked formula. Even though it has a hint of glitter, I've found this shade really wearable, due to the pink neither being too much on the hot pink or pastel pink scale. It's perfectly in between. The packaging is nice & neat and contains one of the handiest brushes I've used that comes with a product already. I think it can be dodgy territory sometimes when a cosmetics range supplies or brings out a set of brushes, but the small curved applicator you get with this works brilliantly. Because the brush is domed it's really easy to hold & to use, it seems to hug the apples of my cheeks perfectly applying a really even coverage. I just love it.

Makeup Revolution Vivid Blush Lacquer - O Boy
When this landed its' way through my letterbox a few months ago I was more than terrified on how to use it. Never in my life have I used a liquid blusher!... But let me tell you, it's been absolutely brilliant! The pump only allows the smallest amount of product out at a time, but one pump is exactly the right amount. This product gives excellent coverage & blends really well with it being a liquid blush - I feel like I've been converted into a liquid blush pro! It also makes my cheeks feel ridiculously soft, adding to the dewyness of summer skin. The colour is absolutely perfect for the warmer weather because it's the hottest of hot pinks & even though it applies slightly more muted, it still packs a punch! The packaging isn't the most inventive here, it's very budget based, but that's exactly what Makeup Revolution's about. They've got a fantastic little product on the inside & it's what's on the inside that counts right?

What are your favourite summer pink blushers? Can you think of something that I really need to try?
