Best Black Friday Deals


Black Friday never used to be very big in the UK but over the last couple of years a lot more brands have jumped on the bandwagon. It's not even the big day yet and I'm already getting flooded with emails about deals which have already started so I thought that I would share with you some of the best deals that I've come across.

BEAUTY:

Beauty Bay: They're offering up to 30% off everything.

Boots: There's a range of savings across their products, with many products having more than 50% off.

Feelunique: They're offering up to 60% off certain products for a limited time and 20% off selected fragrances.

Lookfantastic: You can get 15% off your order with the code: UNLOCK

FASHION:

ASOS: There's currently 20% off for students and you can also get up to 60% off shoes and accessories.

Missguided: They've got 10% off for students and there's also 50% off dresses with the code: dresslove (ends today at 6pm).

Nasty Gal: This is fast becoming one of my favourite places to shop and they're currently offering 40% off new arrivals with the code: TAKE40

PrettyLittleThing: There's 50% off 1000's of styles and different daily deals and you can get 25% off everything with the code: HURRY25 (ends today at midnight).

River Island: You can save money on selected items which are part of their 'Black Friday warm up'.

SHOES:

Public Desire: Students can currently save 20% on all shoes except the sale (and there's more deals to come later in the week).

SCHUH: There's a variety of shoes which you can save money on, including 50% off certain Adidas trainers.

There are plenty more deals around and lots of companies are changing the deals each day so you need to act quick! Hopefully you can find some great stuff (I know my bank account is going to take a hit!). Let me know if you come across any other deals.

VLOG: Visiting Paris


Here's the final vlog from my Summer travels (I'm well aware it's nearly Christmas - I need to up my editing game!). It features clips from my trip to Paris, which included a visit to Disneyland! Leave me a comment if you have a YouTube channel so I can check it out.

Also, I made a few changes to my blog design earlier in the week so let me know what you think of it. Those social media icons took me ages to do!

Benefit Hello San FrancisGLOW!


For my birthday (which was over a month ago now I've just been very bad at blogging recently - sorry!), I received the Benefit Hello San FrancisGLOW! highlighter kit from a friend. If you're as obsessed with highlighter as I am then this is perfect for you! It contains a mini Dandelion Shy Beam, a mini Dandelion Twinkle, a mini High Beam, a full-size Watt's Up! and a mini Powder Brush.

Considering the amount of makeup I buy, I had actually never tried a Benefit highlighter before. My favourite is High Beam, which is a gorgeous pink liquid highlighter that's perfect for applying over makeup and gives a radiant glow. Dandelion Twinkle is a paler pink than High Beam and is a powder rather than a liquid. This is great for strobing or it can also be applied all over the face - but I haven't tried this yet. Watt's Up! is a subtle rose-gold cream highlighter which is perfect for everyday use because it's not 'too glowy' - if that's even possible! Dandelion Shy Beam is a pink matte-radiance liquid highlighter, something that I've never used before, and Benefit say that you can wear this alone or with makeup. This isn't as sparkly as the other highlighters in the kit so it probably won't get as much use from me because I'm all for sparkles! The kit also comes with a guide on how to apply each highlighter which is really helpful.

This would make a great Christmas present for someone or if you want to try a few of Benefit's highlighters before buying the full-size version. Do you use any of these highlighters?
