Moving home ...

Hi guys,

So I have just moved home and due to a delay we do not have wifi in the house as of yet. It will be on its way shortly so looking forward to posting about all of the lovely things that I have been up to lately!

I am loving my new house but have been inspired a lot to post about my decor, inspirations and also the trials of moving home!!

Also, I have got a lot of new products and read a lot of new books lately so please bear with me and I will be back posting soon,

Love Rachael xox

Real Techniques Brushes

Hi guys,

I have just purchased my first Real Techniques brushes. I just haven't ever got round to purchasing them but I am very happy with these. I finally took the plunge (before my spending embargo) and I actually love them. I have used them a few times so haven't really got the feel for them yet to do a proper review but here is what I love so far.




I love the packaging they come in. I love the fact that the holder can stand up for ease when doing my makeup - this will especially be useful when on holiday - I may even take the pouch but with my travel brushes.

The other bonus is that they can hang upside down as well, meaning that they can dry when I have just washed them! Love it.


Okay, so the actual brushes themselves are a really good size. I know it sounds very stupid but I prefer a thicker brush to hold. 


They are so soft and I like this as it makes me realise how old my current ones are!! The pack itself also comes with instructions of how to use each brush and there are plenty more tips online too.

I am expecting really big things from these brushes so if you have been toying with the idea of making the purchase, then I would!

Nivea Oil Free Moisturising day cream ...



Hi guys,

So I have been using this nivea oil free moisturising day cream as part of my normal daily routine at the minute. This is for oily and combination skin.


I love Nivea products as they smell great but they are so affordable too at only about £2.00

This Nivea day cream is a lovely light cream that leaves your face feeling instantly moisturised.. As part of my routine, I apply this and then do my hair allowing it time to soak into my skin. 

It doesn't have an SPF so I probably won't use it for much longer as it means applying this and a sun cream  - Sun protection for your face is so important - especially when the weather is so sunny.

I do think this day cream works for me better than other products due to the oil free. It means I don't get the usual 12pm glare that other moisturisers can produce.

It is a good little product, that I will definitely switch back to using in the colder months.

You can pick up a little tube here.
