Mary-Lou Manizer Review

Hi lovelys,

I hope you all had an amazing christmas!!!!

I have been planning this post for a while but I somehow lost the photos I took but I found them today and was so excited.

A while ago for a present one of my friends got me the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter as I mentioned to her once that I wanted a nice highlighter so she very kindly bought me it. I was so excited as I had heard so many amazing things about this highlighter.

I thought I would share with you all my thoughts on it.


If you haven’t ever seen it this is the packaging which I completely love because its so unique and cute! I love how detailed the girls face is and just how the whole thing looks all together.


This is the actual inside of the highlighter and straight away you can see the shimmers. I didn’t think I would but I actually love how its a warm base colour as it looks better on my skin then just a white shimmer would look. It is gorgeous and looks amazing on it is shimmery and makes me glow but not too over the top that I look like a disco ball haha.  For me I can use this highlighter with or without foundation which is something I love as other highlighters without foundation it looks odd but this one actually looks quite nice without foundation.


I did a swatch and as you can see the colour pay off is gorgeous. Another thing I like to use this as is a base for my eyes as it is a great base colour. I am in love with this highlighter and use it almost everyday!

Would I recommend this? DEFINITELY !!!  yes it is on the pricier side but if you can splurge it is worth it for a natural effortless glow.

I give this product a 4.5/5

If you have this product let me know what you think of it!

Setting Up My Christmas Tree

Hi lovely’s,

Tonight my brother and I set up our family christmas tree (finally!).

We were a bit later doing it this year as the days went by so quickly but we got around to doing it so I thought I might share some photos!


This is the tree finished. It took us about an hour and it was fun from beginning to end. I mean who doesn’t love singing  and dancing to some christmas music add in a tree, lights and decorations and its 10 x better!


This is us once the tree had finished! and yes by the way I cut my hair quite alot if you want a separate post on it let me know!!!

We are quite proud of our achievement and how it turned out. There will be a video soon of us setting it up so make sure to check it out when we post it!


Let me know what you think of our tree,
