Glastonberry Matte Revolution Lipstick | Charlotte Tilbury


I recently won a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Sally's giveaway and because we're coming up to Autumn, I chose the Matte Revolution lipstick in Glastonberry, everyone loves a berry lip in Autumn! I own Bond Girl in the same formula of lipstick so I knew I'd absolutely love this one. As with everything Charlotte Tilbury, it's in beautiful vintage style rose gold packaging. 

The shape of the bullet is unique, I actually prefer these square shaped bullets as I think it makes the lipstick so much easier to apply. The only thing I would say about application, is that a dark shade like this would probably look better if I lined my lips before applying it. Even though it is matte, it is still creamy to apply and doesn't feel drying on the lips at all. Both Glastonberry and Bond Girl make my lips look more full. which is always wonderful! I will definitely be getting a lot of wear out of this lipstick over the next few months!

Do you own any Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks?

Team GB Cupcakes

In all honesty, this post was meant to go up on the day of the Rio Olympics opening ceremony but I didn't get time to make the cakes beforehand. So I thought I'd put it up now to celebrate that we are second place in the league table! I love these cute little Union Flags that I picked up, I thought they'd be perfect for Team GB cakes. I made plain vanilla cupcakes then thought I'd add on the flags to make them more special. I've really been enjoying watching the Olympics as usual, especially the swimming events. 

What's your favourite Olympic event to watch?

Top 10 Songs This Week #1

I absolutely love music, I couldn't go a day without listening to it, so I thought I'd start this new series on my blog. I'm hoping for it to be a regular weekly series, with a new set of 10 songs I've been enjoying that week each Sunday. This week I've been enjoying two brand new songs, Good Summer by Kate Nash and Bang Bang by my favourite band, Green Day. I'm so happy that they've both released new music! Also a very special mention for an album I've been loving this week, the self-titled Viola Beach. This band ever so sadly passed away in a car crash earlier this year, the album was released posthumously. It is an incredible album and full of perfect songs for summer and I'm sure I'll be enjoying it for a long time.


1. Good Summer - Kate Nash
2. Swings and Waterslides - Viola Beach
3. Can't Stop The Feeling - Justin Timberlake
4. I Could've Been Your Girl - She & Him
5. Somebody Else - The 1975
6. Bang Bang - Green Day
7. Arguing With Thermometers - Enter Shikari
8. Hair - Little Mix
9. Trouble With My Baby - Paloma Faith
10. You Give Good Love - Whitney Houston
