Sainsburys 4 Round Foundation Sponges Review

Hi everyone.
I was diagnosed with a latex allergy back in the year of 2014 and ever since I have had to purchase latex free alternatives.

I find it difficult to find and buy make up sponges which are latex free. However recently I have found Sainsburys 4 Round Foundation Sponges which are £1.50 for a pack. They are latex free and great value for money. 

The sponges can be used to blend foundation, concealer and dry powder to give a flawless finish.
Directions of use is to dampen the sponge before use. Either apply foundation to the sponge and then onto the face or foundation onto your face and blend outwards.

First I apply NYX Photo-Loving Primer all over my face. I then soak one sponge in cool water and gently squeeze off any excess. I apply Gosh X-Ceptional Wear Foundation directly to my face and then with the sponge I blend the foundation outwards. 
I'm impressed with the result with using the sponges as my foundation looks smoother.  I would recommend them. 

Let me know in the comments below if you have tried any supermarket cosmetic essentials.

The Sainsburys sponges are a new addition to my make up collection. I made a video below of my entire make up collection at the beginning of May as apart of VEDM

I wanted to write a supply list in my blog of all the brand names and links to help rabbit owners or people who are thinking about purchasing a pet rabbit. I personally love watching videos and reading blogs like this because it has really helped me giving my rabbit what it needs. All animals deserve to have the best life as possible.

Here is a list of the supplies which I have brought for Magic:-

And the most important is a unlimited amount of LOVE.

Lush Bloggers Event Nottingham

When I recieved a invitation through my email inbox from Lush PR asking if I would like to attend Nottingham’s bloggers event on the 12th May. I graciously and excitedly accepted as I have always been a big fan of Lush products.

Lush on Clumber Street is on one of the most busiest streets in Nottingham. I completely avoid weekend visits to the store because it’s so busy. My inner introvert hates it when shops are so full of people that you can’t physically move around. I like to be able to shop at my own leisure and with space. 
Nottingham's local bloggers and vloggers were greeted by the friendly and welcoming Lush staff. Sparkling summer fruit pitchers and doughnuts from Doughnotts were on offer as refreshments throughout the evening. Yum :)
It was a wonderful opportunity to be able to fully browse around the Lush store. I enjoyed having one to one consultations with the staff as I could pick their knowledge about products which I’ve always been curious to know more about. 
I learnt about Lush's lifelong aim to create products without preservatives because these chemicals have potential to harm us and also our planet. Lush’s three products which were reformulated to be self-preserving which are Dream Cream hand and body lotion, Ocean Salt face and body cleanser and Mask Of Magnaminty face and body mask. It can be found in two formulas: preserved and self preserving to suit the customers needs.
I also learnt about the Lush's spa and the treatments avaliable. I had a complimentary arm and hand massage from the lovely Ellie (LushPrincessUk on Instagram) which was very relaxing. She used the Soft Coeur heart massage bar (which is my favourite as it smells of toffee, chocolate and everything sweet). I didn't realise how tense my hands were until after they had been pampered. After my hand massage Ellie used Silky Underwear which is Lush's version of talcon powder to dry any excess oil. This contains jasmine, cocoa butter and vetivert oil. I think this would be great to use as a natural deodorant or as a dry shampoo. 
At the end of the evening we all recieved goodie bags which were tailored to whether we were a bath or shower person.
Out of the options I chose a Superdad bathbomb (which is a combination of guaiacwood and sandalwood) these are sold exclusively for Father's Day which is on the 18th June. I used it in the bath as soon as I got home because sandalwood is one of my favourite scents. My Dad isn't keen on beauty products as much as I am and he would much prefer a beer for Father's day.
I also recieved The Comforter shower gel (100g) and Ocean Salt self-preserving face and body scrub (120g).
I've never tried any of these products before so I will let you know my thoughts in future blog posts.
I never thought that when I started my blog or YouTube channel back in 2014 that I would be invited to a Lush event. Thank you for inviting me. It was lovely to be recognised for my hard work which I put into BunnyMoonstone. I absolutely love what I do but it takes hardwork, patience and persistence. 

What I loved most of all was seeing my blogger friends and networking with new people too. 
Here is a picture of us on Jay Allsopp's Instagram page.

Focus Gallery Jewellery School Launch

Hi everyone.
On the 2nd May I attended the preview of the Focus Gallery Jewellery School which is opening to the public on Saturday 6th May.
It's a newly refurbished spacious studio which contains all of the equipment and tools you will need for jewellery making.
A small group of us had a taster workshop from 2pm-4pm and in this 2 hour session we made a ring with Alys Power who is a jewerellery maker and a wonderful teacher.
We learnt how to cut, saw, solder, file, hammer and polish our rings. I especially enjoyed the tea and baked goodies supplied by Tough Mary's to get us through the afternoon (the blondie brownies were amazing. I'll be coming back for more of those). 

Watch the video below.



I'd like to thank the owner of the Focus Gallery Antonia Disney for inviting me.
