Sleek Pink Lemonade Blush Palette Review

Being the silly fool I am, I threw away the outer packaging to this before I got round to taking my blog pictures - I guess I was just too excited to get my mitts into it! However, if you did want to know what it looked like when looking for it in the shops, there's a picture of it in a mini haul on my Instagram page. This little palette had been on my radar since people first started blogging about it, but I rarely get the chance to go to Superdrug (and when I did it was out of stock!), so it just sat on my wishlist for weeks and weeks. Our local Tesco has recently had a big makeover, including their beauty department, and I was excited to see on a recent trip that they now stock Sleek - perfect! Without a moments hesitation, I quickly grabbed this palette and headed for the tills.

My Favourite Nail Polishes For Spring

So Spring is (almost) here, and it's time to start thinking about switching up my makeup and nail polish for the new season. We had a bit of good weather where I live over the weekend (though the wind & rain did return on Sunday afternoon, eurgh!), and I was inspired to dig out all of my favourite spring nail shades and give my nails a quick paint. As you can see, I have a real love for pastel shades, and my collections is pretty big, but I thought I'd pick out my top five for you.

The Beauty Blogger Tag

I was taking a look through by Bloglovin' feed when I came across this tag on Emily Grace's blog. I enjoyed reading her answers and, since I've been looking for a tag post to do for a while, thought I would give it a go for myself. It's a bit of a long one though, so please bare with me!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil Review

I was in town a few weeks ago when I strolled past The Body Shop and caught a glimpse of this little lovely in the window. I instantly did a heel-turn and marched straight into the store to purchase it. I'd read a lot of reviews on this serum around the time of the product launch and was so intrigued by it. Now I've had the opportunity to try it for myself, I thought I'd share with you my thoughts.

Stila In The Light Palette Review

If you read my payday beauty haul, you'll know that I finally got my hands on a Stila eyeshadow palette. Being a sucker for neutral eyeshadows, I decided to purchase the In The Light palette first. All I can say it why didn't I buy this sooner?! This has to be one of the most impressive eyeshadow palettes I've tried and could even rival my beloved Naked Palette as my new go to palette.

Birchbox - February 2014

My second Birchbox arrived towards the end of last week, this time with no issues and I have to say I was very impressed with the speed of the delivery. I'd been a good girl this month and not looked at any of the Facebook and Twitter spoilers, so everything in my box was a complete surprise to me this time around.

100 Follower Thank You & Giveaway

I can't quite believe I am doing this post already but, during this weekend Kizzy Hearts gained its 100th Bloglovin follower! I was so over the moon when I found out and I am so proud that my blog has achieved such a big milestone already. It's way beyond any expectations I had, so thank you so so much to each and every one of you that has taken the time to read my little blog. I've only been blogging for a couple of months but it has already become such a big part of my life and I'm really enjoying expressing my thoughts and interacting with so many new people with similar interests to myself. It's very early days yet, but I'm hoping blogging will lead to me building new friendships with so many of you lovely people.

Tips for Weight Loss Motivation

Image from
Since posting about my weight loss journey last month, I've had a lot of messages from people who are currently embarking on their own weight loss journeys, many asking for tips and advice. I'm not a diet or fitness expert, so I'm not going to sit here and tell you how to lose weight. But, having been there myself, I know it can be difficult to find the motivation to carry on sometimes, so I thought I would share with you my tips for staying motivated whilst losing (and maintaining) weight.

Winter Survival Products For Lips

The cold days of winter can be very harsh on your lips. I'm someone who suffers from dry skin & lips all year round, so winter is a nightmare for me. But over the last few months I've found a few products that have helped to leave my lips flake free for hours on end - a couple of which you may have seen in my beauty discoveries of 2013 post.

ANOTHER Primark Haul

I've only been blogging for a month and a half, and I'm already on to my second Primark haul! But when the prices are as low as theirs, it's hard to resist having a cheeky little purchase - I spent less than £100 from these two trips combined, and picked up a decent amount of things both times!

Revlon Matte & Lacquer Balms Review

I know every blogger and their dog has already reviewed the new Revlon lip balms, but I wanted to share my love for them with you too! You see, I've become just a little bit obsessed. You may have seen in my latest beauty haul post that I picked up a trio of these on my payday shopping trip. I loved them so much that I decided to go back to Boots the following weekend and pick up three more - and I could well end up with even more by the end of the month!

New Look Wishlist

I haven't been on a big New Look shop for a long time, which is not like me at all - usually you can't keep me away from the place. But I'm trying to be kind to by bank balance and spend a little less at the moment. That doesn't stop me from looking though, and I found these beauties whilst browsing online.

Beauty Haul - Boots & Superdrug

Soooo this happened...again! As soon as payday hit, I was straight off into town to spend some hard-earned cash. Taking part in the #bbloggers twitter chats a lot throughout January meant that my wishlist grew a lot this month - this is just a small selection!

January Beauty Favourites

So January came and went pretty quickly. It's been my first full month of blogging and I'm absolutely loving it so far. Picking my monthly favourites for January was a lot easier than I thought it would be - I've tended to stick with products I know I love this month but I intend to be a lot more experimental with products in February. After payday I went on a huge shopping trip and picked up a lot of new beauty bits, which you will be able to see in a haul post in the next few days, so hopefully I'll have a few new favourites for next month.

Life in January

January was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I did enjoy some great days out with friends and family, including celebrating my Dad's birthday last weekend, but there have also been some bad times. Work life has not been that great for me this month and a member of our family was taken ill a few weeks ago, which worried us all. Fortunately, she is showing signs of improvement every day and we are hopeful she will be able to go back home this week. I don't want to dwell too much on the negative anyway, so here are my highlights from the month.
