My Ultimate Autumn Treats!

Living each day to the max is important, but taking the time to relax is even more so. Sometimes I get to 9pm and wonder where the day has gone, I collapse in bed and forget about taking any time for me. As the nights are getting darker and the days are getting colder it’s made me think about all the things I can do to feel as cosy and relaxed as I can. So I wanted to write a bit of a TLC guide to tell you about all the things I love to do to feel pampered and ready for the Autumn!

palm5

I get quite anxious and stressed and i’m always looking for things that force me to slow down and relax. So a few weeks ago I set myself the challenge of learning how to knit! I love snuggly hats in the cold so I knitted this one and have been wearing it almost every day. It was so therapeutic learning how to do this and it feels so good to know I made it!

palm12 palm3

Morning and evening pampering is a TLC must for me, and you don’t have to have hours to do this. I’m all about the indulgence and sweet treats so I was really excited to try Palmolive’s new Gourmet Body Butter Shower Cream as a new addition to my Autumn pamper routine. My favourite is the chocolate one – think hot chocolate and marshmallows and everything a chocoholic would love! It’s made with cocoa extract so you can imagine the smell. I’ve really tried hard this year to find products that embrace and make the most of all the amazing natural ingredients we have around us, and this range does exactly that. It’s incredibly rich and moisturising which my skin really needs at this time of the year. It makes my pampering sessions even more luxurious and relaxing!

palm2

They also have Strawberry Touch and Vanilla Pleasure which would be good if you prefer something a little more fruity! I took these away with me on a weekend away and the whole bathroom smelt like a spa. They feel so soft and luxurious on your skin, and let’s face it our skin needs all the help it can get as it starts to get colder! You can get the range from Superdrug here.

Food and drink is a big part of my life and I take a little more time as it gets colder to make a few treats. In the morning I love this gluten free porridge with honey and nuts or my homemade granola which you can watch how to make in my ‘What I Eat In A Day’ video. My absolute favourite thing when I’m having a ‘me moment’ is hot chocolate in front of the fire. When I really want to pamper myself I go all out and add cream, marshmallows and a flake. It’s so comforting at this time of the year. I got this recipe from DrinksTube where I make tea videos which is a really good go-to for Autumn drinks!

palm7

Finally, I get so much of the feel-good factor from shopping and I love this time of year for that! I did a snuggly clothing haul recently and picked up a few scarfs, gloves, hats and boots. This has to be one of my favourite times of the year for spoiling myself shopping and I love the colours for Autumn as well as all the gorgeous knits and fabrics.

So in between all the hustle and bustle, try to take a little bit of time out to relax. It makes such a difference to my mood and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. What are your favourite things to do to relax and pamper yourself at this time of the year? Becky x

New Home and My Future Dreams #ad

Hey guys, I thought I’d give you a little life update here over on my blog! Apart from beauty, more and more of my videos are becoming about my home life and interior and general life topics as I grow up and start having to make lots of decisions. I get a lot of questions about growing up and all the things that come with it, like jobs, relationships, money and buying houses. As some of you might know I have moved house this week (with my sister Holly) and it feels great to finally be in. So I wanted to share a few pictures of our new home – these will be the first sneak peek pictures I’ve shared online! And I also wanted to talk about what I hope will happen in the next chapter of my life!

I’ve gone through quite a few changes this year, and it’s made me think about my future and what I want from it. I’ve been playing around with Aviva’s Shape my Future tool and it’s been so fun looking at what my hopes for the future are and what I need to do to get there. It’s so easy to use and it lets you daydream about the future you might want, and then looks at how much you’ll need to afford all the things you want!

aviva1

aviva3

Family is a huge part of my life, and I know that over the next few years I would love to settle down and start thinking about having a family. I’d love to have a huge wedding with all my family and friends and probably make it last the whole weekend. I would love to have children and I hope I’ll be able to help them with school and university and all the things my parents helped me with which is so expensive now! I would love to find a dream home for us all to live in, hopefully near my sister and her family, and maybe a holiday home where we can go each year. Travelling is such a big part of my life and I hope I can do that in years to come and take my family too. I’m also taking big steps this year to eat better and be more active so I really hope in the future I’ll have enough money to keep buying really good quality food and to do all the activities like yoga that I love doing.

aviva4

I was quite surprised about how much the future I want will cost, but I was also really happy that I’m already taking steps to save and earn so hopefully I won’t be too far off where I want to be. I did a bit of a fun twist on the popular ‘draw my life’ tag that was going around on YouTube, and decided to do a ‘draw my future’. It talks about a lot of my dreams and hopes that I’ve never shared online, you can watch the full video here, I’m even in a wedding dress! You can have a play with the Shape my Future tool here, it’s so fun and I think you’ll be quite surprised! I really hope it helps some of you in the way it helped me.

So now for the next chapter of my life, my new home. Here are a few pictures of my new house and I’m so excited to share these! Already it feels so much more like a home than where we are before. It was scary moving again and realising we weren’t happy there, so it’s made me think a lot more about planning things a little better in the future! A lot of you guys reached out to me saying you were in the same situation. A house has to feel like a home and I think we have finally found it.

Bronzed and Ready for London Fashion Week

Each time London Fashion Week comes around I get so excited but I also get a little nervous about what to wear and how hectic it’s going to be! This year there was a lot of emphasis about body shape, which I’m really in support of, so I decided to keep things fairly simple. Whatever I’m wearing, I always feel better when I’m bronzed, I always think it looks better in photos!

vl1

I’ve just got back off holiday and I’ve been using the Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 week self tan. I find the medium mousse works really well for my skin colour, and lasts so well as a base tan to get me through the week. I’ve always favoured mousses because they are so easy to apply, and this one doesn’t have that distinct tan smell that puts some people off.

vl2

I decided to wear a skirt at LFW so I needed a little extra help for my legs and here is a hero product that I tell all my friends and family about. It’s the Vita Liberata Body Blur and I’ve been using it religiously for a while now. It’s amazing if you’re going to an event or are in a rush and want a product that will instantly tan you on your body or face but also covers up bruises and little veins. Goodbye blotchy legs! My friends get addicted to this when they try mine before we go out and then the next day I’ve usually got a text asking what that ‘amazing’ blur product was. I even find it helps cover cellulite so I don’t need to wear tights.  Don’t just take my word for it, scroll down for the before and after! You can actually get a free sample of this with every purchase of the Vita Liberata pHenomenal Tan until the end of September. I’ve got a code if you want to try the range – just use BECKY20 here.

vl3 vl5 vl6 vl7maybelline-1

I loved LFW this year, the emphasis on simplicity and the gorgeous materials that were used. I don’t live in London so it’s always a treat to go in and to go to events like this! I’m giving away 5 Vita Liberata Body Blurs! All you need to do is comment your favourite item of makeup below and follow Vita Liberata on Instagram (@vitaliberata) Love Becky x

WHAT I EAT IN A DAY – PERIOD EDITION!

I uploaded a period hacks video over on my channel and I never imagined the response to be so positive!! So many of you contacted me to share your tips too and also food to eat which included food to eat to get us through that time of the month! So I’ve been making a few changes and wanted to share a bit of a food diary to help you through what can feel like a lifetime. I get quite bad PMS (premenstrual syndrome), and three out of four of us will get this so I feel like we need all the help we can get!

krill1

I’ve been trying out something called Cleanmarine. Cleanmarine for women, is a krill oil based supplement and naturally rich in omegas. Omega 3 fatty acids in krill are meant to really help with PMS symptoms like anxiety and cravings, plus my mum is always telling me to take that because it’s so good! It also has rosemary oil in to help with your mood and it’s packed with vitamins that really help sustain you month round, and particularly at that time of the month!

These include Vitamin D3, otherwise known as the sunshine vitamin, which regulates the immune system and keeps everything in balance, Vitamins B1, B2 and B6 which support the nervous system and keep your energy levels in check, and  Krill oil, which brings all the goodness of omega 3 fatty acids and helps to lift your mood and aid concentration. It’s designed to really reduce PMS symptoms that women suffer with, like headaches and bloating, so I was really keen to put this to the test. I’ve noticed a really big difference in my skin, and also I’m sleeping so much better since incorporating this into my daily routine. I usually stuff my face with chocolate at that time of the month but now I’ve noticed  that I’m much more in control of the cravings.

krill-2

Obviously I only have my own experience to go by, but Cleanmarine have spent a lot of time working with women to put this to the test. After using it for 90 days, 69% of women said they had improved symptoms and a massive 81% said they had reduced breast tenderness.  a massive 69% reported less Bloating and 59% less cravings! You take two a day and it’s available in health stores, pharmacies or online here.

krill-3

As well as this, I’ve been stocking up on some key foods that I think have made a huge difference. First of all I’ve swapped junk food like crisps and chocolate for coconut and cocoa protein balls. They are so easy to make and are much better for you but they taste just like chocolate. I’ve filmed a video showing you how to make them if you click here.

krill-4

Also, pick foods that are high in iron and antioxidants like spinach, nuts and quinoa. One of my favourite salads is a strawberry, goat’s cheese, almond and spinach salad. It makes me feel so much less bloated than what I would usually have. Giving into cravings makes me feel so much worse! If you don’t like salads, you can get antioxidants from fruits like blueberries and raspberries.

Finally, don’t forget to drink lots of water. Fizzy drinks will just bloat you so avoid those. Keeping hydrated helps flush everything out and will also just make you feel like you’ve got a lot more energy!

Most importantly, open up about PMS and periods. I was so nervous about doing my video but I am so glad I did. I feel so much better now and know so much more because once I spoke out about it so many people have talked to me about things that help them. You’ll be amazed at how much better you feel and also I bet your friends and family will have little tips and tricks that you didn’t know about! What’s your biggest period worry or tip? Love Becky x

TALKBECKYTALK HOLIDAY MAKEUP MUST HAVES!

I wanted to share with you guys a few special photos from my holiday and to tell you a little about where I went, what I got up to and my holiday beauty must haves. I had always wanted to go to Ibiza so I booked a week with my mum and her friend. We actually had a week of rain (only this could happen to me!) so it meant lots of free time in my hotel room getting ready for our evening meals with the products I had packed.

 MAX1 MAX2 MAX3

I love getting ready when I’m on holiday but I do have to change my usual makeup routine with less makeup and stick to a few cult staples of mine. Besides cramming as many minis as I can in my case, I always turn to makeup palettes which allow me to change my makeup up each night without having to pack my whole collection. The first palette I took was my Max Factor Masterpiece nude palette. There are 3 in the range, my favourite is the ‘golden nudes’ because it’s filled with natural browns and the option to make things a little smokier! My mum loves the ‘rose nudes’ because it has more pink in it and my sister loves ‘cappucino nudes’ because it’s great for darker more dramatic eyes! The pigmentation on these are great, and you get 8 shades for £14.99. I wore this most nights as there’s a shade for pretty much whatever you’re wearing.

  MAX4

The second palette I took was the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette, perfect for a bit of radiance on holiday. I’d had my eye on this since it came out and a friend of mine bought me it as a surprise! First of all the colour payoff is incredible. I don’t own too much Charlotte Tilbury but the more I try the more I realise just how worth the money it is. This palette has a 2 blushers, a bronzer, highlighter and 3 eye primers and colour so it’s perfect for when you’re on the go.

 MAX6 MAX7

I stayed in a yoga retreat just a few miles out of Ibiza town, and then headed to stay near the Old Castle for the last few days. The food was amazing, and my top tip if you visit would be to hire a car so you can find all the beautiful beaches and places to eat!

 MAX8

I can’t be without a mascara on holiday and this year I packed my Max Factor Masterpiece Max. Some of you guys will know I pretty much cleared the drugstores out of the Max Factor Masterpiece Transform (in brown) in my TalkBeckyTalk YouTube videos so it’s time for a new one for me! The wand on this is pretty cool. I love the end of it because you can pack loads of the product on your lashes and then the wand helps to separate and build up to 400% volume perfect for some serious lashes! I don’t get that horrible dropdown with Max Factor mascaras and it’s even more important for me when I’m in the heat!

I also packed the Clarins Eye Makeup Double Fix which claims to make your favourite mascaras and eyebrow products waterproof. I swam in this and it did run a little but I have to say it kept my mascara on all day without running and did last against the rain and sweat!

 MAX9

To complete the eyes, I packed my Max Factor Masterpiece Long Wear Eyeliner. This is a really great eyeliner if you want a product that can create a number of looks. I used the edge on holiday for a really subtle liner which stayed on all night (it’s meant to stay for 12 hours). If you use the thick side it creates a really high impact look. I’ve actually done a video showing you how to create that smoky “cat eyes” look using the Max Factor mascara, eyeshadow and liner I’ve just talked about if you click here. My sister wears this look in the evenings on holiday and it’s perfect for me when I’m at home going out. Go say hi under the video!

 MAX10 MAX11

Finally, apart from a box of good lip balms, for me holidays are all about the hair! So I live off dry shampoo because it gets so tangled and greasy! My two favourites are the Pantene Pro V Instant Refresh and the COLab Sheer and Invisible. I love them because they are two of the few dry shampoos that actually make your hair look good again but don’t feel really gritty and dusty which puts a lot of people off using them. I can’t decide which I prefer but they are both really affordable and I get through so much that I always take two cans away with me!

I’m actually giving away three of the Max Factor eyeshadow palettes so you have something for your holidays too! Comment below telling me which one is your favourite and why – cappuccino nudes, pink nudes or golden nudes.

 MAX12

Here’s to some sunshine, even in the rain, it felt so wonderful and relaxing to be away! On the last night we sat and watched the sun go down, it was so magical.

Summer Makeup Must-Haves

Summer holidays are pretty much what I live for! The sunshine, the pool, friends…..I never want to come home! I don’t often do this but I wanted to write a little post about my holiday to share a few holiday pictures and also to give you a sneaky peek of what I got up to.

holiday1 holiday2

I went to a place called Kas in in Turkey with my sister Holly and a few of our friends. It was the most beautiful fishing town and I just fell in love with how beautiful it was and how friendly everyone was. We ate so much of the local food and went out for the day on a boat which was just amazing.

holiday5 holiday8 holiday9

I wanted to share one of my outfits from an evening out whilst I was there. My outfit is from Pretty Little Thing. I’m really lazy when it comes to makeup and hair when I’m on holiday but I still like to look dressed up! For my hair I’ve used the Pantene Pro V UV Protection spray. It helps to protect my hair in the sunshine and makes it really easy to style as it softens the curls that I get when I’m swimming and my hair drys. So for makeup I’m using my Benefit Do The Hoola makeup kit. When I’m travelling I love finding collections of miniature products to take away and Benefit do this really well. You get a lipgloss, mascara, powdered bronzer, liquid bronzer and balm. Most of them are hero products, the only thing I don’t get on so well with is the liquid bronzer as it doesn’t blend well for me. Instead I put a layer of my Laura Mercier oil-free tinted moisturiser to give me a little bit of colour and coverage. And because holidays are all about the dewy glow, I’ve used my Max Factor Excess Shimmer eyeshadow in Copper. The staying power and pigmentation on this is incredible. I’m obsessed with the bronze one and this one is perfect for the summer months. Finally for my lips I’m wearing the Max Factor Colour Intensifying Balm in Refined Rose which has been my go-to summer lip product. It’s packed full of moisture and can either be used as a sheer balm, or built up to give you a really pigmented colour. I love it.

holiday3

I filmed a video whilst I was out there talking all about my  iq opt pool-side essentials which is over on the Beauty Recommended channel. Everything from my favourite sunscreen for combination skin to a new compact product that I can’t live without. Don’t forget to  opzioni binarie prima operazione gratuita senza deposito subscribe here too so you don’t miss any of my other videos going up there. I’d love to see your holiday pictures too.

Benefit POREfessional License To Blot

benefit pore

I’ve struggled with oily/combination skin for as long as I can remember so anything that claims to get rid of shine I immediately have to try and test! The Benefit POREfessional license to blot sits alongside a few other products that have tried to tackle the good old problem of shiny skin!

benefit2

I’m already a huge fan of the Benefit POREfessional primer to smooth skin and keep shine away but I still need something after a few hours. Blot on the Spot is an instant oil-blotting stick that claims to keep shine away for 6 hours. I love the idea of this but am always skeptical of products like this so I was keeping everything crossed for this one. The application is really easy and I love the point on the product which makes it really easy to get down the side of the nose and under eyes which is where I always get shine! You just slide it across your face and then I blend.

benefit3

It’s quite thick and waxy but I’d expect that from something that was going to hold shine away. At first I wasn’t sure about the consistency but it felt quite soft when it went on and didn’t clog my pores up. It actually made my skin look smoother but you just need to get used to the waxy feel. In terms of shine, it instantly mattified my skin and kept it looking smooth for about 4 hours. I tend to prefer blotting papers for getting rid of shine which don’t tend to affect the makeup but as anti-shine products go, this is pretty damn good. Becky x

Olivia Palermo X Ciate London Collab

ciate 1 ciate3

Ciate has long been a favourite of mine when it comes to nails. Every time I see the little bows in store I can’t resist buying a new shade. So when I set my eyes on this new collaboration I was excited to try it.

ciate2 ciate4

Olivia Palermo has teamed up with Ciate to create a new Olivia Palermo X Ciate collection, and I have to say the result is beautiful. The colours are very safe, a red a coral and a nude. I tried ‘Hutch – My Go To Red’ and I had high hopes as the polish comes in at almost twice the price of the normal polishes at £17. So first impressions, the brush was beautiful and really made painting my nails easy. The polish itself was gorgeous and definitely looked and felt different to the usual formulation that I’m used to. It glides on and the pigmentation is so bold and plump. It’s formulated with something called Dual Polymer Mesh Lock technology. Although that doesn’t mean much to me, the finish of the polish does! It’s so much better than most polishes I own and looked so thick and glossy. It dried quite fast and after 4 days was still chip free.

ciate5

A little throw in here but I wanted to mention it. I’ve been so frustrated with bad nail files recently so I came across these Lottie Sundowner ones and wanted to mention them. They file really well and look super cute. Make sure you file your nails well before you paint them!

The price tag is so worth it, for a little bit more I’ve got a polish that looks stunning and won’t chip. Plus the bottle looks really cute on my dressing table! I’m excited to try the other shades and hope the formulas are the same! What do you think of the three shades? Becky x
