2014!


A big big big Happy New Year to everyone! If you’re Muslim, then our new year started a while back but I never got to say it!

I’ve been really excited to start this year with a BANG on my blog but have been incredibly busy since the start of the new year! With so many things planned for this year, let’s all pray that things pan out for everyone and that this year brings happiness and joy for all!

My blog being a big reason for my smile is why I’d like to propose a few things for this year! It’s only the first week in and I’ve taken a tonne of pictures and am in the process of writing up tonnes of blog posts!

I’ve decided to continue with my tradition of blogging everyday in certain months and below is a list of them all:
Feb-blog-ary (February)
Blogging April (April)
Ramadhan (July-ish / August-ish)
Septemblog (September)
Blogmas (December)

I hope that that you all keep up to date with me on a daily basis during these months where I’m hoping to blog every day!

However, during the other months, I’ll be sticking to a schedule of blogging 3/4 times a week and sometimes more! I don’t want to be specific as to what days I’ll be doing however, I’ll be Tweeting and FaceBooking when I post new things!

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who supports my blog because even if only one person reads InHerBubble, my blog will have fulfilled its purpose! I started this blog with a concept where I wanted to blog about everything I loved, and I’m so pleased to see so many people share those passions with me!

LOTS OF LOVE!

Bicester Village Haul: DKNY and MAC


Whilst I was in Bicester Village and was bumping into all the shops I wasn’t interested in, I FINALLY went into a store called ‘The Cosmetics Company’, which little to my knowledge was an outlet store (which I should have known because Bicester Village is outlet central). I was so happy to see some amazing brands in there but obviously I was drawn to their MAC counter, where they had their limited edition collections at a discount! I wanted everything, but chose this..

I couldn’t find this watch online anywhere

These boots were made for walking..


I purchased some new shoes from Russel & Bromley and love them so much, I thought I’d show you how to style them! They’re super comfortable and are great for wet weather.. Perfect for the UK!

Take a look at them..

Ted Baker Make Up


20131111-203925.jpg

In the UK, Boots are really well known for their Christmas sales and the products they release from tonnes of brands for the festive season! I recently popped in there and saw Ted Baker make up kits, which is completely new for me to use! I wanted to try it because Ted Baker is a high end brand, so I grabbed this kit.. Have a look..

The Great and the Gorgeous Cosmetic Gift Set – £40 (they have now put up the price)
The kit came in at £19 (I was so chuffed at the affordable price but they still have it in their ‘3 for 2’ sale). As always with Ted Baker, the packaging is incredible and the products inside are made of good quality!

The kit comes with: a bronzing compact, lipstick crayons, eye liner, shimmer eye creams, eye glitter, false eyelashes and glue, nail polishes, illuminating liquids and cosmetic brushes! Tonnes of products!

The swatches of the products show the quality of the makeup! It really is worth it!
The colours are autumn happy and I just love the idea of carrying around that rose gold compact!

The brushes are MAC quality.. Seriously! I love the lip crayon shades which are super moisturising and pigmented AND.. All the nail varnishes and highlighting (illuminating) pots, are crazy beautiful! The eyeliner is pigmented and long lasting and the other eye make up (lashes, glitter and cream shadow), are so natural and easy to wear!

Autumn beauty favourites


I love me some cold weather, hence why you’ll notice a lot of blog posts about the weather this time of year! I like to stick to some staple pieces throughout autumn and here they are:

Avon super shock gel eyeliner ‘Blackberry’ – £6
When it comes to eyeliner, I’m the Queen! I have tonnes of colours and it’s my ‘go-to’ for when I want to add colour to my face! I like using black but during autumn, I like to use a slightly more warmer colour and a deep red is perfect for that. I have brown eyes, so using brown and red tones compliments them a lot and oxblood, maroon and scarlet are the top autumn colours! This eyeliner is so long lasting and it’s super pigmented! It’s actually a really deep purple colour with intense red glitter in it hence the shade- blackberry. Has superb lasting time and is super pigmented too! I love using this on the waterline and smudging into my top lashes when I want extra smoke (as shown in image above).

Accessorize Merged Baked Blusher ‘Scandal’ – £5
** Currently not available on their website
When I first purchased this blusher Miss. A one day, I knew if love it! It’s a gorgeous metallic-looking dusty pink! I applied it to my cheeks when I was quite tanned and to be honest, it was almost invisible. Then when I tried using it as my tan wore off, it began to look better and better! It has a gorgeous sheen which doesn’t look like glitter at all and is so pigmented.. Even though it’s baked, it has a lot of depth to it and isn’t a flat colour! It’s smooth to apply and although I first thought it wouldn’t look good as a blusher on darker skin, it adds a gorgeous glow when used as a highlight! I love this stuff and because it’s so valuable, I love it even more! It’s perfect for adding a glow to your skin during the drier months!

Maybelline Forever Strong Pro ‘Midnight Red’ – £4.09
Ok let’s just appreciate how beautiful this nail varnish is! I love it for adding a bit of colour to the hands! It’s really long lasting and lasts like a gel meaning it doesn’t chip at all and had a high gloss finish! I really like the brush and colour pay off, too! It’s as cheap as chips and Maybelline is available in any country.. WOOHOO!

Bourjois Shine Edition ’23’ – £7.99
When this range of lipsticks came out, I was so excited to try a few and I grabbed them as soon as I can! The colours I chose were very autumnal and this one is by far and beyond, one of my favourites! I really like red and purple tones and this combines both if my loves! It really is shiny and has a real glossy look to it on your lips. It’s super pigmented and all thought not very long lasting, it is super easy to top up! It’s good value for money and they have a great colour range too.. Definitely one to check out!

MAC Sheertone Blush ‘Breath of Plum’ – £18
I like bright blushers and I definitely cannot have a face without it! So when I saw this shade earlier on this year, I knew I’d love using it in autumn! It’s sheer, so isn’t a strong rush of purple colour which would look odd and so adds a deep colour without looking dark! It’s a good change from the bright shades because deep colours look better on pale and cold looking skin! It’s soft to touch and is super finely milled colour.. Superb!

KIKO Eyeshadow ‘133’ – £1.99
When I bought this eyeshadow, I wanted to use it as a blending colour when doing dark smokey eyes, but I love it so much as a smokey shade alone, it’s become a staple for autumn for me! It’s a deep burgundy colour with a copper undertone! It looks super nice mixed with the Avon eyeliner, and it matches so well! It is really pigmented and is soft and smooth to blend! I love this shade for autumn heaps and bounds!

Real Techniques ‘Expert Face’ Brush – £9.99
The hype of Real Techniques brushes is so high at the moment and it’s evident why when you use this brush! It’s a dense and stuff synthetic brush which is slightly oval shape! It’s so good to use with cream products and heavy powdering! Apply blush, highlighter, bronzer, contour, foundation, concealer and even powder with this brush and your makeup will look flawless! It’s as cheap as chips and lasts so well even after washing! I love using this brush as much as possible and for most of the face products listed above, this brush works perfectly!
