My 20th Birthday - Haul

I would like to firstly apologise for my lack of posts recently! I've been Ill and then I was so busy for my birthday that I just had no time or energy to put enough effort into a post and didn't want to write a half decent one just to fill a gap. 

I had such an amazing birthday weekend and that is all thanks to my amazing family and friends!

I went out for the day in Liverpool with my family and my boyfriend which was lovely and did a fair bit of shopping. I've taken pictures of the things that I bought whilst in Liverpool and a few bits and bobs that I received from my family and my boyfriend's family too.

I finally took the plunge and bought the Naked 3. So far I have been so so impressed with it. I have quite small eyes and so the lighter colours seem to really compliment them and make them pop! I will be hopefully be doing a full review soon!

I love the style of the keyring and notebook that my boyfriend's mum and auntie bought me! They look lovely in my room too and I've found a nice way to display them. I was thinking about doing a 'room tour' post so let me know if you would like to see that. 

I also picked up a lovely backpack style bag from Forever 21. I love the fact that it never falls off my shoulder like my other everyday bags and It's so spacious. It's great for carrying my things around uni .

My little brother got me a custom made Smiths mug with a painting of Morrissey on that a family member did. He paints custom canvasses and so this has real sentimental value to me!This goes perfectly with the T-shirt that I bought from HMV (fangirl alert)!!!

I also popped into MAC and picked up 'Creme In your Coffee' which is a lovely Cremesheen Lipstick and MAC Iridescent powder in Silver Dusk which I am loving as a highlight or just adding a little bit to my foundation for a lovely glow.

I had such a great weekend seeing family and picked up lots of things from my wish list! I also had this amazing salad in Pret, Crayfish and Avacado! Yum!!!

I'd love to know what's on your wish list! Drop me a comment below!

REVIEW - Emma Hardie Natural Lift and Sculpt Body Scrub

This was one of those products that I expected a lot from. Since the cleansing balm is so amazing I did really hope that this would live up to the same expectations and so far I can honestly say that it has. 
It can be used as a mask or as a scrub and at first I decided to just try it as a scrub. I applied it in the same way that I would use an exfoliating scrub and used it on more dry areas because it did feel quite harsh and I know how sensitive my skin can be. I applied it all over the backs of my arms and my legs and also used a little bit on my back as my skin can get quite dry there, I did notice that the 'Organic Red Corn'  really did exfoliate my skin and I could tell straight away that it was working which was nice. I love the fact that it's really thick as I felt like it was really moisturising as well as exfoliating. The smell is another thing that really stood out to me. 
The Moringa scent is really fresh and lingers on the skin just the right amount without being overpowering.
I noticed that the dry patches on my arms and blemishes on my back really did clear up and I felt that the scrub really did moisturise those areas well!
When using it in mask form I just applied a similar amount to problem areas and left for a few minutes while conditioning my hair before rinsing and massaging off. 
I didn't necessarily notice that one method was more beneficial than the other as both worked wonders for my skin.
Now to justify the normal price tag when I need to replace!

Have you tried this product or any body scrubs that you think match up?
