February Favourites

Tuesday, 27 February 2018

Hello Loves!

Well thats another month of 2018 down, I always look forward to this month being over because March is my birthday month! February for me wasn't the best of months, Scott and I split meaning I now live with my sister and I lacked major blogging motivation, which is something that seems to be happening often...However this month wasn't all bad..

1: L'Oreal Hair Masks
These hair masks have been saviours for me this month, my hair has been lifeless and dry recently so I have been slathering these beauties on my ends religiously this month. Not only do they make my hair feel and look amazing they smell incredible too. I have never really thought much about caring for my hair but since using these I just know I will be taking more care of my hair.

2: L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I am always trying out new foundations, usually drugstore wise I tend to gravitate more towards Rimmel however I decided to pick up this one from L'Oreal as I had heard so many good things about it. I have been loving this foundation so much, my skin has been awful this month so a full coverage has been a must for me. This foundation is buildable, blends like a dream and lasts all day on my skin, I honestly cannot get enough!

3: L'Oreal Brightening Face Mask
Okay, so I am sensing a trend here...yep more L'Oreal, they're just killing the beauty scene at the moment! L'Oreals new(ish) skincare range has been swarming the beauty blogging community and rightfully so! I have been obsessed with using this mask this month. It is designed to brighten up your complexion, which I can confirm it does. This mask has little exfoliating beads to remove any dead and dull skin cells from your face. I have noticed such a difference in my skins brightness. especially around the areas I have scarred from previous imperfections.

4: OPI Cuticle Oil
Finally going hand in hand with getting my nails done is OPIs cuticle oil. I work in a shop as a supervisor meaning I am constantly handling dirty money meaning I wash my hands a hundred times a day. washing your hands so often will dry them out. My poor cuticles have seen better days therefore I have been trying to make more of an effort with them by giving them little oomphs thought out the day. This OPI one smells amazing and feels amazing too.

What have you loved during the month of February?

2018 Life & Blogging Goals

Friday, 19 January 2018


First of all I am very aware that this post is slightly late, life has been hectic however I still wanted to share my goals for the year. 2017 for me went by in a a flash, it wasn't the best year for me. I lacked motivation, productivity and lots of other things which I am going to try and implement into 2018.


1: Pass My Driving Test...
Okay, so since this post is late I am happy to say one goal for this year is complete!! I passed my driving test on the 15th of this month with 6 minors. I am loving my new found freedom and am excited for the opportunities that have opened up now I can drive!

2: Learn How To Manage Money 
This is something I have really struggled with this year. I am a retail supervisor so my wage isn't the best meaning I live from pay check to pay check. I want to work on recognising when I am wasting money and saving that money instead.

3: Take Time To Learn More About Myself 
As you get older you change as a person, its a fact of life. I am at a point in my life where I'm not 100% happy but I don't know what it is that will make me happy. So I want to spend this year exploring and getting to know my adult self to allow me to set goals for my future happiness....wow that was a deep one.

4: Self Love & Self Care
This goal is pretty self explanatory, I want to spend 2018 learning to love myself and take care of myself mentally and physically.

5: Be More Mindful Of Others
I want to share the love not just this year but for years to come. I want to be more mindful to other peoples feelings and happiness. Kindness is something that can be rare to come by but even the smallest act of kindness can impact massively on someones day.

6: Complete My Weightloss Journey
I am a bridesmaid for my besties wedding in August so I am hoping to finish my weightloss journey by then. I have about 3st ish to lose which I personally thing is doable. Another goal is to join the gym and/or workout...


Blogging in 2017 has been so stressful. From bitching matches on Twitter to shitty algorithms *ahem Instagram!* I have fallen out of love with blogging massively but I miss it so much. So my biggest goal is to find my love for blogging again.

1: Find A Manageable Schedule & Stick To It 
Since starting my blog in 2015 I have had several different schedules due to changes in my life. Ya know life happens...I want to try and find a schedule which is manageable for me and my job without blogging becoming stressful and chore-like.

2: Reach 13k On Instagram & 20k On Twitter
This is one I am not overly optimistic about simply because of how bad growth has become for us Instagrammers. I am planning on doing my research and working my little butt off to hopefully reach my goal. Shameless self promo...head on over to my Insta and feel free to give me a cheeky follow! @chloedentonxo. Twitter is slightly easier to grow however it has slowed down a helluva lot recently however I think this goal is slightly more accessible. Again feel free to give me a little follow, you wont regret it :* @chloedentonxo

3: Interact With Other Bloggers & Share The love
Throughout my 3 years of blogging I have made some amazing blogging friends, I am wanting to spend this year meeting new bloggers and making new blogging friends. As I am sure you have all noticed, 2017 was the year of twitter spats between bloggers, the blogging community has become a hostile place at times so I am going to try and share the love a little more towards other bloggers to hopefully drown out the negative Nancys. If that fails, actually down them...(kidding!).

4: Build Relationships With Brands
Relationships with brands is such an important part of blogging wether we like to admit it or not. No we don't blog for PR samples however they do help us bloggers and obviously its lovely when a brand chooses you to work with them. I really want to concentrate on building my relationship with brands I love.

What Goals Do You Have For 2018?

Have The Best Year!

November Goals 2017

Sunday, 5 November 2017

Hello Lovelies!

Can you believe it, another month, another goals post. Halloween is now over, November is here which in my book means It's CHRISTMAS!! I'm not entirely sure if you've guessed already but I freaking love Christmas meaning I am quite excited....October for me was not productive in the slightest, I lacked motivation for pretty much everything in my life especially blogging. However November is a new month, I'm feeling positive and motivated to smash my goals.

1) Love My Blog Again
I have been so concentrated on improving my Instagram engagement I had forgotten almost completely about my blog. I expressed my thoughts to some lovely bloggers I am in a chat with on Instagram and one of them simply said 'your Instagram is only an extension of your blog' and you know what she is totally right. After she said that I decided I would try extra hard on my blog from now on and get it back to where it used to be. One thing I have realised is, when my blog thrived my social media thrived along with it. Heres to working my ass off to bring my blog back to life!!

2) Pre-write Blog Posts 
This is something I used to do religiously before I started working as much as I do now. I work shifts meaning I can, at times work weird hours which can make it really difficult to blog regularly. So this month I am going to try extra hard to pre-write some blog posts so I don't miss upload days again (Wednesdays & Sundays). I have also decided to plan my blog posts for the entire month so I am more aware of what I need to have written and for when. Essentially I am trying to be more organised. 

3) Pass My Theory Test 
Okay this is a big one, I have passed my theory test before however I left it too long meaning it has run out. But I am super close to being ready to take my driving test (like before the end of the year ready) so passing my theory is essential since tests get booked up pretty quickly! I would say wish me luck however my theory test is in-fact today (Nov 3rd) So by the time this post goes up I would have either passed or failed!!! agh, no pressure!

4) Be Prepared For Christmas
This is a goal I have been seeing on a lot of in peoples posts recently and I can't blame them! I am taking the bull by the christmas horns this year by preparing and organising! I started my Christmas shopping in October meaning I now only have Scott to buy for, I have also created some Christmas to-do pages in my Bullet Journal which is allowing me to see what exactly I have left to do. Last year for me didn't feel like Christmas at all so I am determined to change that this year! 

Another goals post down, one left to go for 2017! Do you have any goals you want to complete this month? 

L'Occitane Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner*

Friday, 3 November 2017

Hello Lovelies!

L'Occitane's repairing shampoo & conditioner is designed to prevent breakage by using a mixture of five essential oils and regenerative amino acids which helps strengthen, repair and protect your hair. L'Occitane is a brand I have been hearing a lot about recently so when they contacted me to try out their repairing shampoo & conditioner I must admit I squealed a little from excitement. 

The five essential oils included are ylang-ylang, sweet orange; lavender; geranium and angelica giving these products a floral and fruity scent. What I love about the scent of these products is they aren't over powering at all, the scent was also left in my hair even after a few days of washing it. 

When I first used the shampoo & conditioner my hair was so dry and damaged. If I am totally honest I don't do anything to look after my hair other then wash it with whatever shampoo & conditioner is on offer, so I didn't know what to expect from these! One thing I really liked about these products is the thick lather, I really don't enjoy shampoo & conditioners when there isn't much of a lather because it makes me feel as though my hair isn't getting cleaned properly. 

After I had finished washing my hair in the shower I put it into a low ponytail and left my hair to air dry for a couple of hours. My hair is ridiculously long so blowdrying takes too long! Once it was slightly dryer I decided I was too impatient to wait to see how my hair looked and felt so I ended up spending 40 minutes blow drying my hair. Once my hair was completely dry I couldn't believe how soft and silky it felt, it felt so nourished and healthy almost as if I had used an intense repairing hair mask. My hair also felt much lighter and voluminous.

I think it is more than fair to say I love L'Occitanes repairing shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo retails for £18 and the conditioner retails for £19, they are on the more expensive side but trust me when I say, they are worth every penny! After trying out these products it has made me want to try so many more from them! 

L'Occitane also have some gorgeous Christmas Gifts For Women, perfect for the important ladies in our lives, I couldn't recommend this brand enough especially if you want to buy a more luxe present for someone special. I must say I personally have my eye on their Classic Beauty Advent Calendar!

Have you ever tried anything from L'Occitane before?

October Favourites 2017

Tuesday, 31 October 2017

Hello Lovelies!

There goes another month, I cannot believe it is only two months until CHRISTMAS. I think it is fair to say I am rather excited to start with christmas festivities. October for me has been a write off, I've lacked serious motivation not only in blogging but in my day to day life to. Thankfully I am feeling much more motivated and I'm super excited to start fresh with a new month. 

This foundation is such a cult favourite in the blogging world, I was quite late to the band waggon but I am so glad I decided to hop on. I have been using this foundation pretty much everyday this month, I literally cannot get enough of it. This foundation applies and blends like a dream, It gives me a full coverage which has been a must for me this month as the weather change has basically killed my skin. Not only does it apply really well but it also lasts ALL day, and I'm talking though out my 9 hour shift at work and then some! I am starting to run low on this foundation so I really need to pick up another...or 10.

This is another product I have been using non-stop this month, I was sent it from the lovely people at Influenster. The highlight is subtle but beautiful, the contour is literally the perfect shade to carve out (or in my case crate) your cheekbones. It isn't too bronze or too muddy, for me it is a drugstore version of Hoola bronzer from benefit. The blush is such a beautiful, subtle pink shade which is perfect for me because I like a more subtle blush. Much like the healthy mix foundation this little palette of dreams lasts sooo well and applies pretty much flawlessly.

Lets face it, this wouldn't be an autumnal October favourites if it didn't include an autumnal nail polish. Dark nail polishes are always a go to for me so during Autumn & Winter I am in my element. This is such a gorgeous brownish red colour and I've been obsessed with it since the end of September. It lasts amazingly well and holds such a gorgeous shine which is something I always hope for in a nail polish. I must say these ones from Maybelline really are amazing!

I have been really struggling with my skin this month, It must be down to the change in the weather. (I am aware that was such a British thing to say HA!) My skin has been really dry this month which has made me produce more oil and therefore get freaking blemishes and those spots the size of houses that don't pop. This toner is so gentle and moisturising which has helped my skin so much! I have heard hit and miss reviews about this range but personally, I'm enjoying it. 

Revulee Black Mask

Another skincare product I've used non-stop this month is this blackhead mask. It is one of those gross but amazing masks that pull out the vile blackheads embedded in our poor skin. I must say I get quite a few blackheads around my nose and chin so this mask has been my saviour recently. I know a lot of people like to use the pore strips from brands like Biorè but trust me they are nothing compared to masks like these! You can read my full review here.

Just so eliminate the elephant in the room, yes I am aware this photo isn't great, sorry but these darker evenings make blog photography difficult especially when I work weird hours and lets face it there is only so much studio lights can do...moving swiftly on. During the Autumn and Winter my skin gets extremely dry so I go though tonnes and tonnes of moisturiser. I have been loving and seriously getting through this one from Soap & Glory. I'm sure you will all agree with me that Soap & Glory kill it when it comes to amazing body care products which smell incredible. If you haven't already tried this body butter then you NEED to, like right now!

Well there you go, my October Faves. I must say October wasn't really a month for new products but it was filled with amazing products I love. Hopefully November will be more of a positive month for me. Let me know what you have been loving this month! Until next time lovelies.
