NEW YEAR NEW ME? ft. Magnitone BareFaced! Face Cleansing Brush

So we covered how I'm going to get my body co-operating in my last NEW YEAR, NEW ME? post featuring SlenderToxTea, however today we're going to discuss the situation that is my face. 

It ain't pretty

One too many nights out and one (or 10) too few nights ending in cleansing properly, have led to the uneven, scarred and discoloured painting that it is today. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a tad, but something definitely needs to be done. 

Even those of you (like myself), who aren't into beauty/skincare as some bloggers will have come across a contraption like this before. The not-so-humble cleansing brush. They've always looked a bit scary to me to be honest. But then I scare at the toaster popping up, so who am I to talk. 

Magnitone's BareFaced! face cleansing brush is 'Vibra-Sonic'. What the heck does that mean? It means that it uses a combination of sonic oscillations and electromagentic vibrations to create an energising 'skin workout'. Basically it cleans your skin really really well. 

It's waterproof, wireless, has a wireless charger, comes with a brush protector and travel bag, has interchangeable brush heads, comes in three pretty colours and is recommend by over 500 beauty writers, GoodHousekeeping and The Beauty Awards.

Just as with my SlenderToxTea post, I will write a follow up after a few weeks of using the Magnitone BareFaced! so you can read all about my impressions after testing. Stay tuned!

NEW YEAR, NEW ME? ft. SlenderToxTea 14 Day TeaTox

14 day teatox, daytox tea, fitness, health, healthy, New In, new me?, new year, sleeptox tea, slendertoxtea, new in, sponsored, collaboration,

Yup, it's that time of year again. The time of year to drag out the dumbbells, buy all the exotic fruit and veg under the sun and battle with the dilemma - 'to Gym Membership or not to Gym Membership'. 

Along with these methods, there are loooaaads of 'skinny teas' on the market. But so who knows which to choose? That's always been my dilemma. I've tried other brands before, but SlenderToxTea has been on my radar for a while, especially after being featured in the likes of GlamourCosmo and Vogue

SlenderToxTea promises to help detox your body to give you less bloating, increased metabolism and 'A New Detoxed You', all if used in combination with a healthy diet, adequate water intake and exercise.

Stay tuned for my follow up post as to how I get on! Wish me luck, and all the will power in the world for me to stick to this. Then maybe 2016 with potentially be the year I get off my ass and get into that fitness routine I've always promised myself.

CURRENT OBSESSION | Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle Blogs and Websites

Happy New Year everyone! Sorry for my quietness recently, I’ve been that clever kid who leaves all of their revision plus an essay to the last minute. As I always do. Hahahaha… (just laughing through the tears).

So I’ve not left you with no ramblings to read for too long I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite blogs and websites. These are the tabs I’ll have up when I’m procrastinating, or need a break from all the Uni work and need something pretty to look at and easy to browse.

Maddy Cane

All of Maddy's pictures are just absolutely gorgeous! Aside from that, she is such an inspiring blogger who makes me so motivated to look after myself/my skin/my health.

Isabella Thornsden

Isabella is an ASOS Stylist who I originally discovered via Instagram. Her style is literally what I dream my style could be. Her photos are absolutely stunning too.

Style Confessional 

Another gal who's style I seriously seriously crush over. I genuinely end up looking at every one of her new outfit posts - every single one is just so gorgeous.

Cosmo genuinely has a bit of everything. There are some really interesting ‘real life’ articles. Plus some great fashion and beauty features too and many many listicles

Hannah Gale

Hannah's style of writing is just hilarious, so many listicles that are perfect to send to friends captioned 'This is so us!'. Along with loads of pretty wish lists, fashion and beauty.

Introduced to me very recently by my cousin - similar to what I love about Cosmo's website but maybe a bit more grown up? Plus some serious style/travel/beauty/general inspiration.
