Okay, I have a problem. I've totally gotten into Instagram over the past few months and I just can't stop scrolling. I got my very first iPhone last year, and for the first 6months or so, I kept forgetting Instagram existed... but over the past few months i've become obsessed. I wanted to share the love, and today I'm bringing you my Top 5 people to follow on Instagram this month!

It feels like it's been a lifetime since I last bought anything from Sleek. It's not because I don't like the brand or the products, it's just, well I guess I often forget all about their products to be honest. After finding my rose gold blush buried deep in my blusher drawer, I decided to have a look in the drugstore at what else they had to offer.

I fell in love with Margot Robbie just that little bit more when I saw her make up at The Oscars this year. I knew that if there was one 2015 Oscars makeup look i'd be recreating it was hers. I'd read online somewhere that apparently Margot wore the Hourglass Liquid Lipstick in Raven to the ceremony and although I'd tried 4 different Space NK stores, I couldn't get my hands on that gorgeous orangey red shade. Instead I opted for a drugstore alternative with the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet- Hot Pepper Lipstick. I never usually wear orange toned lipsticks, or red lipsticks at all really, which usually tends to make me feel that little bit more glam when I'm go for it.

So there's 48hrs to go until Mothering Sunday (or Mothers Day) here in the UK and if you haven't picked a gift out just yet, there's no need to panic. I wanted to share a quick gift idea with you that I know my mum would love and maybe yours will too.
I remember when the Marc Jacobs Daisy perfumes first were released, I was obsessed, and I did my best to convert everyone into loving it too. There have been numerous versions since, and with every release the scents are both classy and sophisticated whilst being suitable for women of all ages, which is no easy task.
The Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Set from House of Fraser* is just pure perfection from the moment you open the box. The cool powder blue tones of the bottle really did make me squeal the moment I saw it the first time! I'm so obsessed with this gorgeous shade of blue, and with the daisy embellishment, it just makes the bottle to die for.
I'm absolutely shocking at describing scents, but I'd say it had a fruity sweet smell that isn't overpowering and it reminds me of smelling fresh flowers at a florists.
At £54.00 it's a respectable amount for a 50ml bottle of perfume, shower gel and body lotion. Or £39.00 gets you the perfume alone leaving enough cash left over for a bunch of flowers to go with it!
I'd love to hear what your favourite perfume is! Let me know in the comments!

Beauty is a word which can conjure a clean and definitive image in our mind every time we hear it. Whether it's a Victoria's Secret model strutting down the catwalk, or a bunch of freshly cut long stemmed roses... beauty is a word which can mean many things, to many people.

On Friday morning, the MAC Cinderella collection was finally released in the UK, and unsurprisingly, it sold out within 20 minutes. I was really hoping it wouldn't release on Friday with it being the one day of the week that I wasn't in front of my computer as I was attending my part time advertising course at a local London University and was spending the whole day in the classroom.
