The £1.49 miracle complexion sponge!

Hello my darlings!

I have been on the bargain hunt, as usual, and I have found something that I think will excite you as much as it excited me! A company in the UK called home bargains are selling these sponges and let me tell you they’re exactly the same as my RT one but the only difference is it’s just a fraction of the price! Now I know that RT are not really that expensive anyway but when you compare that these are usually £5-£6 and the one that is from Home Bargains is £1.49 I couldn’t actually believe my eyes!

If you live close to a Home Bargains you should run as fast as you can because I believe that these are going to sell out and fast!

Could I have just found the new fad? What do you all think! Let me know!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Much loves

Happy Halloween!

Hello lovelies!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend, I myself have had a quiet one! I am currently in bed with a big migraine trying to nap, I want to know what you’ve been up to? Tell me in the comments!

Big news of today is that I finally reached 1000 followers on my Instagram! I’m so so happy 💚

My little nephew turned one today, that is also exciting.

Anyway just thought I would check in, hope you’re all well! P.s this is Barry the pumpkin 🎃

Lots of loves


I’m back!

Hey lovelies!

We’re back from our trip, and as lovely as it were, it’s so good to be home!

I’m all unpacked and back to my busy normal life, I’m not going to lie since being back I’ve needed a little bit of “blogspiration” as I just haven’t known what to write! But I just thought I would check in and see how you’re all doing and tell you a couple of things I’ve been up to.

I got some beautiful shoes from f&f at Tesco for £20! They are beautiful and a bargain!

Did anyone see the strange sun? It was so red! The world looked like it had a filter on it!

And that’s all for now! If you’ve got anything you want me to review or write about let me know! I need some blogspiration!

Lots of loves!


Mykonos #2

Hello lovelies!

Today was day 2 of our trip to Mykonos and it started with quite the headache, last night we partied a little too much but had a fabulous time!

Today we had a chill day laying on the beach and relaxing the day away, it was amazing!

This evening we went for another stroll into Mykonos town and found more and more shops! My make up radar was definitely in full swing and I managed to find the Sephora!

Here are my 4 favourite pictures of the day!

Have you tried tried the hair mask I got from Sephora before? What do you think?

Also I’ve decided to do a giveaway over on my Instagram when I have reached 1k followers! I’m so close eeee so if anyone would like to follow me and help me out I would be forever grateful! @illyhelen

Thank you for reading!

Much love


Mykonos #1

Afternoon lovelies!

It’s our first day here in Mykonos and it’s currently 14:30pm.

We arrived last night at around 11pm!

Today we went exploring into mykonos town and it was lovely, this place is really picturesque and just wonderful, we had an amazing coffee which was just yummy!

We have visited the windmills and the famous “little Venice” it’s truly beautiful!

And that’s it for today, check out my 3 favourite pictures of today!

Much love


I don’t like pumpkin spiced lattes! 🙀

Hey lovelies!

Hope you’re all having an exciting weekend.

I went to Starbucks last night to try the very raved about ‘pumpkin spiced latte’ & I really didn’t like it! Don’t get me wrong I can see why others would like it, but it just wasn’t for me! A lovely lady kindly swapped it for me, thank god for lovely staff! I had the caramelised pecan latte instead and boy was that good!

I had my nails done for my holiday and I actually love them so much!

Talking of holiday! Only 4 days to go! Be ready for lots and lots of pictures when I get back and blogs of what I did!

That’s all the news I’ve got for now!

Much loves
