The Review // Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot

After being on the hunt for a powder for quite some time I have finally found 'the one' that is the lovely Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot powder, and let me tell you it really is 'one heck of a blot'. It's so good in fact, I though it deserved it's own post. 

I was on the look out for something with no coverage or colour, just a simple 'shine tackler' with none of that 'cakey' look you often get with powders- just plain natural. This powder does just that. I use a BB Cream normally for my base which can leave my skin a bit too dewy. With my Real Techniques brush to lightly apply this to my t-zone and a smaller eyeshadow brush for under my eyes to set my concealer, it does a brilliant job to last throughout the day. Highly recommend this for anyone looking for a natural finish powder!

As Valentines day quickly approaching I though it would be appropriate to do a little post on the very topic itself- love. I know what your thinking and no you don't have to be in one of those 'lovey dovey' relationships to celebrate the holiday. It can be celebrated with friends, family and yourself. Everybody has different representations of love whether it be a love for a person, an animal or even something as simple as an item.

"But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous." -Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City.

If your thinking of a nail colour to wear on Valentines Day Essie 'She's Pampered' is the perfect vibrant red to accompany any outfit for any occasion whether your staying in with friends or going out to a nice restaurant.

Valentines day as well as every other day is also about respect toward others and Brilliant Earth definitely portrays this in their values and jewellery. Brilliant Earth creates beautiful, flawless jewellery with no environmental or human cost as well as donating 5% of their profits in helping to communities who have suffered unethical methods in the making of jewellery. So whether you are getting treated or treating yourself (or even just fancy a bit of window shopping) take a look at some of their pieces and I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Some other bloggers and I were asked to participate in the 'Create a Little Love' Campaign and create a picture showing the word 'love' so of course I took the opportunity!

Happy Valentines Day!
