EBAY FINDS.

Just over a week ago now I purchased a couple of little bargains off of Ebay, just on a whim but I'm excited to share these little gems!

I really needed some new make up brushes as I don't really have many at the moment. Just about one brush for each product that I use which is annoying when you have to wash your brushes so often just to keep them clean! To solve this problem I thought I'd buy a cheap set of brushes to fill me in until I can afford the Zoeva set that I've been lusting over for months.These were just over £5.
Having said this though, I'm pretty happy to wait for a Zoeva set at the moment because these brushes are so good! They're amazingly soft and I was so surprised at how easy they made my make up application. I usually use my Estee Lauder foundation brush to apply my foundation, (obviously!) but I used the oval shaped one to try it out and fell in love. I didn't think I'd be anywhere as impressed as this if at all but finding little bargains on Ebay seems to be more worthwhile than I thought. 

The second product that I got was an electronic facial cleanser. Nothing fancy at all and I didn't expect it to be seeing as it was just under £10 but If you're on a budget or don't want to spend lots of money then this is a good little product to gently cleanse your face, helping to remove the last bits of your make up and also smooth over your skin. I found after using this that it makes applying your foundation easier and also helps it to stay on better. As gross as it sounds but we all know how foundation likes to cling to the drier parts of our faces, so this helps in stopping that. It won't work miracles but it is a helping hand for a small price.

Do you have any Ebay posts for me to read?
What bargains have you found?

ZOELLA BEAUTY.

First of all don't judge me!
I know the release of Zoella Beauty was literally so last year, (Naughty Blogger)!
I just need to start of by saying the scent of these products is out of this world! I just can't stop smelling everything and I know where the situation with the body mist is heading.. I'm going to need another one really soon!

This little beauty is brilliant for just dropping into your bath and I love that it looks like a giant chocolate bar so you can just break off a square as you use. The product doesn't smell as strong when it's in the water but then again it's technically fizzed and melted away so I guess that's why! This is perfect if you're like me and don't always want a bath filled with bubbles but still want to make your bath time a little special.

Continuing with the theme of loveliness..
 I love the colour of this, with the pearl shine to it. It smells divine and lathers up really easily with the smallest amount.

I am super impressed with this! If you've read any of my previous posts where lotions, body butters or moisturisers are concerned you know that If it doesn't dry straight away then I don't want to know but this just sinks into your skin and smells wonderful.

As I've already said I can't stop spraying this. I even sprayed it on me before going to bed.. I've never done that with a spray before. I think its because it's such a gentle, clean, fresh scent that It's just nice to smell whether it's first thing in the morning, or in my case the last thing at night!

I think Zoe and her team have done really well with bringing this collection together and its something she should be hugely proud of! 

Who else has tried Zoella Beauty?

SOAP & GLORY FRAGRANCE MISTS.

I recently purchased these two lovely little gems from Boots and I thought that It was worth me sharing them with you all.
First of all It's probably worth me mentioning that there is a third fragrance mist available which is an orange scented one but I'm afraid I'm not too much of a fan so I just came away with these two.
I think Soap & Glory have absolutely hit the nail on the head with their new simplistic packaging, It's right up my street; and while I know it's not always about looks I still can't help but be drawn in.

I'm terrible at describing scents but luckily because Soap & Glory have written what they are meant to smell of on the front of the bottle It means I don't have to embarrass myself butchering descriptions.
'Mist You Madly' has the scent of 'Freesia, Cassis & Vanilla.
Although I'm not too sure on what 'Cassis' is exactly I can confirm Freesia, or floral scents and Vanilla. Also In my own opinion a bit of a fresh/talcum powder sort of scent.
'Fruitigo' has the scent of Yuzu Fruit and Wild Fig. Again I'm not too clued up on my scents for this one but It does smell fruity, just not a sweet fruity, more of a stronger smell that's less sweet and girly. I think we're at that point where I've just butchered the description of a scent so I'll stop for all our sakes.


Let me know if you've tried these! What are your thoughts?

JUST A GIRL AND HER BLOG.

Hello everyone and welcome to my little space on the internet!
I guess this post is an introduction to 'Its Holly-Rhian' and me - the person behind the blog.
For me my blog is just somewhere that I can share snippets of me and my life, as well as my interests.
Here are a few facts and bits of information so you can get to know me a little. 

My full name is Holly-Rhian Watson and my DOB is 25/10/1993.. that makes me definitely look a lot younger than my actual age! Is it just me that has a baby face?

I hope to share Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle posts here on my blog. I'm a self confessed make up & beauty addict and as well as that, I admit to buying more clothes than I probably need but they are the things that I love so those are the types of posts I'll be sharing as well as general lifestyle posts just to share a bit about myself.

I'm a huge Disney fan..
Theres just something about Disney films that make me feel so happy and safe, I love watching them and I don't think I'll ever get bored of watching them over and over.
And lets all be honest here. It does feel good when you know all the words and lyrics!

Reading is something I've always had a passion for even from being really young. I remember finishing all the books in Primary school for my age so having to move onto the older classes, a bit of a Matilda moment!

I love gaming..
I have always had some sort of games console on and off from first being a teenager, like different variations of Nintendo DS, Xbox, Playstation and computer games.
I now just currently have sims 4 for the computer, my PS4 and my Nintendo 3DS XL.

I'm a massive foodie..
Food hasn't always been a favourite of mine, quite the opposite and an enemy from a young age until I was about eighteen and although I do still have off days every so often, I now usually look forward to anything food related and have food on my mind almost 24/7!

I'm not usually someone to be caught up in the excitement of celebrities to the extent of fan clubs, knowing everything about them and general stalking and I'm still not like that when it comes to Dannii Minogue, (okay maybe I stalk.. just a little though) ;) but I do definitely see her as a role model and someone to take inspiration from. 
I sort of fell in love with her makeup/hair/fashion back in the days of her being on the UK X Factor and then after watching her more and realising she had a pretty awesome personality too it just sort of carried on from there.
I have been lucky enough to meet her numerous of times and also get the odd tweet every so often and I can honestly say she's one of the most humble and down to earth people I have ever met. 

I love animals..
Specifically speaking dogs more than anything, if you want to see me at my most excited then just place me in front of a dog. I also have a love for elephants, polar bears and dolphins - I'm not too sure what the attraction is but they have to be my most favourite. Overall I love the majority of animals though, sometimes more than humans, whoops! 

Reading Blogs and watching YouTube is definitely something that I find myself doing a lot of the time. Reading Blogs and watching YouTube videos is what first inspired me to start a blog of my own so it comes quite naturally to me to spend most of my free time catching up with my favourite Bloggers and YouTubers! 
And when I'm not doing this Netflix is where it's at, am I right?

I can get lost in Magical and Fantasy films so easily, anything like Harry Potter, LOTR (Lord Of The Rings), GOT (Game Of Thrones) or SWATH (SnowWhite And The Huntsman) where theres magic and mythical beasts involved and I'm there. Or witches, that comes under magic right? I love being able to lose yourself in your imagination whilst watching something like this. Studio Ghibli films, more specifically Spirited Away is an animated film that I class as this sort of thing too.


So there we are, a few facts that will hopefully enable you to get to know me a little more. 
Please let me know if we have anything in common!

Holly-Rhian.
