Blogiversary no2 πŸŽ‰

So Sunday (the 8th October) marked two years since I started my blog, TWO!! Where has that time gone?!? 
As most of you who have followed my blog from the beginning will know I started my blog to document our wedding planning, wahhhh it seems so long ago now!! (if your new, Hey! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ) 

I never thought I would be someone who wrote a blog, I thought it was something other people did, ‘cool’ people (whatever cool is these days)

My twin sister Sarah had her blog and she really enjoyed it, I was sceptical but I gave it a go and it turned out to be a hobby I would come to really enjoy. I love that I can look back at moments in my life, recipes I’ve made, shopping sprees I’ve been on and just the things that I’ve been loving over the years, many of which I might have forgotten if it wasnt for them being documented in my own little space.

I’m especially pleased that I documented our wedding planning, as anyone who has got married will know, it all goes very quickly so I will always have that to look back on and remind me of that v.stressful, but fun process, the decisions we made that got us to that special day and just little things that I may not remember forever but will make me smile when I read them back.

A blog has such potential, so if your thinking of doing it, do! Just go for it. Don’t be afraid of what others will think of your writing, it’s yours to make of it what you wish and you’ll never please everyone (Why would you want to anyway, some people are d**ks) + It’s good fun πŸ‘πŸ» 

Here’s to many more years here at Roseanne’s s Blog!

June favourites πŸ’–

I love favourites posts/videos so here’s mine for the month of June πŸ™‚

Let’s start with beauty…

 Mac lipstick in the shade ‘Twig 

This is a satin finish lipstick, this colour is a beautiful nudey, pinky/plum colour. It’s a lovely shade as I don’t have anything like it and it stays on really well. It works really well for an everyday or a night out make up look.

Sanctuary body washes 

I got a set of these from someone at work for my birthday and they are lovely! The scents are so fresh and clean and the consistency of the product is so smooth and makes you feel so clean and your skin super soft.
Tanya Burr face illuminator 

This is perfect for the summer time and a beauty staple to add a lovely glow to your make up look! I like to put a pump of this on with my bb cream or foundation to add a lovely shine/glow. This works really well with a goldy, shimmery, bronze make up look! So keep coming sunshine 🌞
Sleek face palette 

I bought this palette a little while ago but I have been using it alot recently and loving it! Contouring is quite new to me but I’m loving incorporating it into my summer make up routine for a more bronzy, glowy look.

This contour shade is lovely and warm but not too dark, great for my skin tone. The blusher is really nice as it has flecks of gold running through it, So pretty and the highlighter is a gorgeous champagne colour.

The Real Techniques contour brush is brilliant too, the shape is perfect for adding definition to your cheek bones.

Barry M Aquarium collection nail varnish 

I am loving this nail varnish by Barry M, it is from their Aquarium collection and is the shade ‘Mediterranean’.
It’s a lovely shimmery, irridescent, goldy copper colour, a definite metallic vibe which is very ‘in’ at the mo. It looks lovely when the sun hits it and at different angles it looks like lots of different colours, So pretty!


Skinny SF caramel iced lattes

These are SOOO delicious πŸ‘Œ I originally thought the idea of cold coffee was so gross but I tried it again the other day and its so tasty. It’s super refreshing for the summer time with the delicious coffee taste. These work well on Slimming World too which is great and they are super easy to make at home too πŸ‘

Milk chocolate mikado

I have absolutely been loving these this month as a chocolatey biscuit treat and on Slimming World they are only 0.5 syn each or your daily 15 syns for the whole box (if you wanna go crazy!) They are delicious and come in a couple of other flavours inc Daim & white choc. 

I am loving the new front covers, for the first Harry Potter book, to celebrate 20 years of Harry Potter. 
They have released the first book with four new covers, each representing a Hogwarts house, with the cover being the colour of the house, with the house crest on the front. I went for the Gryffindor one and I picked one up for my sister Sarah too. I had to get one to add to my collection, I would love them all but I don’t think I need four more copies of the first book!β˜‡πŸ¦πŸπŸ¦…πŸΌ

So those are my favourites for June πŸ‘

What have you guys been loving?!

Until next time,

Tanya Burr Neutral ambience collection πŸπŸŒ΄

I was super excited to see that Tanya Burr had brought out some new additions to her beauty range, and what better way to spend my birthday money aye!?

I grabbed three of her four new products and I thought I would share them with you, let you know what they are like and such! So let’s get into it. 

These are the two eyeshadow palettes. Let’s talk about the packaging!! It’s so pretty 😍 It’s a matte finish with shiny palm leaves and pineapples printed onto it. The ‘my escape’ palette is a lovely tropical green colour and the ‘my paradise’ is in a lovely copper colour  

My escape 🌴

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) New perspective,wild jungle, tree tops and master plan.

I love the dusky pink colour and the khaki colour is beautiful and has a lovely shimmer to it. I don’t have any colours like the khaki and it looks so pretty on. I love those two for an everyday look and then the bottom darker shades to add a smoky, night out feel to your eye look.

My paradise 🍍

The four shades in this palette are: (from top left) champagne cocktail, tranquillity, Miami sunrise and hammock (love that name!)
I love the coppery tones of this palette, this is a perfect addition to my eyeshadow collection (which mainly includes pinks) They are so pretty and again a lovely mix of matte and shimmery tones.

So pretty!

I also picked up one of the two new lipstick shades…

Sunday walk πŸ’„

This beautiful pinky toned lipstick is called ‘Sunday walk’ I love it soo much. Pink is my favourite shade and this is a lovely matte lip that looks really pretty on and can be quite subtle too, which I like! Great for everyday or a polished evening look, perfect with a smoky eye.

Having these products has made me want to start using eyeshadow more and trying out some different looks, being a bit more daring.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little look at Tanya’s new products! Let me know if you’ve tried any out and your thoughts 😊

Until next time,

Starting up a Youtube channel!Β 

So, Me & my twin sister decided to take the plunge and start our own Youtube channel and we have called it ‘Roseanne & Sarah’. We both love watching Youtubers online and have our own blogs…

 *Find those here πŸ‘‡



We thought that a Youtube channel would complement our blogs and be a lot of fun to film too. We will cover similar topics on the channel that we do in our blogs such as beauty, make up, fashion, lifestyle, family & Slimming world updates/tips/ideas.

We would love your support with this so head on over and take a look 😊

Roseanne & Sarah 

Don’t forget to ‘Subscribe’ to get updates when we post videos πŸ‘ Let me know what you think, any comments (nice please 😊) & tips would be great. 

Thanks guys!

Until next time,

My new make up storage.

I really wanted to get my make up sorted but I was so busy throughout December (and over Christmas especially) so I didn’t get a chance. In the end I thought why not leave it until the new year and start a fresh then!

So here we are in the new year and I’m ready to show you what I collected to store my make up and how I’ve done it.

Some of this storage is what I got new for this sort out and some of this I already had.

I’m really pleased with the finished result although it was scary to see how much I’ve collected over a 5 month period!! I only really got into make up after having my make up trials for my wedding and when I started watching YouTubers around July/August time last year.

So let’s get into it and start with the storage! I went to a couple of different shops and picked up a few things, mainly from Primark, Tiger and B & M.

From Primark I got…

A lipstick holder for Β£1.50. I probably have more lip products than any other type of make up so I just use this to put some of fav lipsticks in. This one currently holds my Tanya Burr lipsticks.

I also picked up another lipstick organiser, that’s what you can see at the top of the picture, and a Β little set of draws. These were Β£4 each.

I also got a make up brush holder for Β£4 (I think it was Β£4, I did get it a little while ago now!)

The brush holder is a simple black, faux leather brush case. You can close it up by putting the top on and and clipping it shut either side or like me, leave it open so you can see your brushes.

From B & M I bought…

A make up storage & organiser, this was between Β£2-Β£4.

I also got this set of plastic draws, these were also between Β£2-Β£4.

Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  Tiger I chose these cute, patterned cardboard boxes.


They come in three different sizes and patterns and fit inside one another. They were only Β£1 each too, bargin!

Some other things that I used for make up storage are a set of three of Zoella’s make up bags from her Christmas collection. These were reduced to Β£4.99 so I grabbed them straightaway.

I also used the box that my Tanya Burr ‘Tanya presents’ set came in. This is from her Christmas collection too…

That’s it for storage so let’s get into how I used these items Β to spruce up my collection and keep it neat and tidy.

As I said I used the little lipstick holder to house my Tanya Burr lipsticks and some of her Limited edition mini lip glosses from her Christmas collection. They are so pretty with the gold packaging.

In the bottom draw of my plastic draws set I put all my eyeshadow palettes.

I actually had more than I realised!!!
In the next draw up I put my blushers and bronzers, (palettes and single ones).

And in the final top draw I put a few random face bits including my colour correcting palette, a loose powder and some contouring and face palettes.

I knew I had a lot of lip products but I didn’t realise the extent of my obsession when it comes to this make up item πŸ™ˆπŸ’„

As well as the holder I mentioned I also managed to fill this (See below) with lip glosses and my favourite Bourjois matte liquid lipsticks as well as the Tanya Burr box!

In the little draws I filled one with eyeliner/mascara products and the other with my foundations/BB creams.

I used the long section of the organiser to house my highlighters and strobing palettes as well as the lipstick organiser.

In the three sections I put my liquid highlighters & eyeshadow primers, my lashes and my compact mirrors & nail files.

& finally the boxes!

In the large one I put my Β new Tanya Burr palettes from her Christmas collection, ‘Pretty unstoppable’ and ‘beautifully defined’.

In the medium sized one I put my eyebrow products…

In the small one I put some random face products like my primers and illuminator.

I popped my little stand up mirror in the middle too.

I bought some Fairy lights from Primark for Β£3 to go around the edge of my make up area.

And here’s how it looks all finished…

I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog post! Let me know what you think πŸ‘

Until next time,

New year Make up Wishlist!

A new year, a new wishlist and where better to start than with Make up!

These are a mixture of both drug store and High end. I have included a mixture of highlighter, blush, lip, face and eye shadow products as well as some make up brushes that I would like to add to my collection.

I already have some products by some of these brands but others I have seen online, been recommended or I’ve seen on YouTube videos and have liked the look of them.

Lets go…


Sleek  Make up I-Divine ‘Storm’ eye shadow palette. I love the colours in this palette, especially the shimmery tones, the pink and burgundy shimmers at the top and the navy blue, grey and emerald shimmers at the bottom are my particular favorites


Sleek I Divine ‘Vintage Romance’ eye shadow palette. Most of these shades are again shimmery, which I definitely prefer. The gold and bronzy tones at the top and the pinky purples are gorgeous.


Kylie Jenner ‘Burgundy eye shadow Palette’. What to say about this? Its just beautiful. The colours in this are so pretty. I love the mixture of matte and shimmer tones, perfect for day or night looks.

The HUDA Beauty ‘Rose gold’ palette is just gorgeous! The mix of shades, mattes and shimmers makes this palette so pretty and perfect for creating lots of different make up looks. The gold, pinky tones and browns are so lovely. 


Maybelline New York single eye shadow in the shade ‘Copper fizz’. I love copper/browny/gold tones and this one is so pretty.


Maybelline ‘Lash Sensational’ Full fan effect mascara. I’m a bit of a mascara novice so I don’t really know much about which ones are good or not. Zoella recommends this mascara often on her videos and my sister also wears this and highly recommends it too.


Kat Von D ‘Lock it’ Translucent setting powder. I don’t use a setting powder at the moment but I would like to try one as everyone always says how great they finish your make up and make it last all day long. I’ve only heard good things about Kat Von D’s products so I’d love to try one out. They are also really reasonably priced! When I heard her make up was becoming available online at Debenhams I thought it would be really expensive but it isn’t too bad.


BECCA x ‘Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection’ face palette. This palette is so pretty!! It has five shades of highlight and blush to give you the perfect glow. You get a highlighter in the iconic shade ‘Champagne pop’ as well as two other highlighter shades, two mineral blush shades and a luminous blush hue in the shade ‘Rose Spritz’. Highlighter and blush and two of my favorite make up products so this product is perfect for me.


Mac Lipstick in the shade ‘Velvet Teddy’. This is a lovely nude lipstick, I’m more of a pink toned lipstick kinda girl but my sister loves this shade so I gave it a go recently and it grew on me.  Its a matte lipstick but it is really moisturizing as you apply it and not drying on your lips. This nude would be a great addition to my lipstick collection.


Kylie Jenner Lipkit in the shade ‘Posie-K’. As I said I love pink toned lip products and I would love to try one of her lip kits as I have only heard  good things about them. In her kits you get a matte liquid lipstick and a matching lip liner. I’ve recently discovered lip liner and it makes lip application so much easier and neater and I just adore this colour.


Sleek Make up ‘Power Plump lip crayons’. I really like Sleek products and they are super affordable. I love that these come in a wide variety of shades, a nude, a pink, a dark pink, a coral, a berry, and a red. They aim to make your lips shine and look fuller. I cant wait to try these out, but which one to choose haha!!

On to brushes…


The Real techniques ‘Buffing brush’. After watching some of Sam & Nic’s tutorials over on their channel ‘Pixiwoo’ I really want to purchase one of their buffing brushes. They use this to apply foundation and “Buff” it into the skin to get a flawless look. I usually use a beauty blender but it would be good to have this brush too to get the best finish.


The Real Techniques ‘bronzer brush’. I love this large brush and would like to use this to apply my powder (when I get one!) So these will be a joint purchase. I love the size of this brush too.

and finally…


The Real Techniques ‘Bold Metals’ collection. These brushes are BEAUTIFUL!  The silver, gold and copper/rose gold colours are so pretty. I love these and I already really like the Real Techniques brushes, the quality is super, so these would make a lovely addition to my make up brush collection.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I’ll let you know when I get my hands on some of these, and of they love up to my expectations! Maybe I will do a blog post when I have acquired a few of these items πŸ‘

Whats on your wishlist?

My first Birchbox!

I decided to make January a bit brighter by treating myself to a subscription to Birchbox and I thought I would share with you what I got in my first box and what I think of it.

If you don’t know, Birchbox is a beauty subscription box that you pay for monthly and recieve in the post. You fill out questions on your online profile about your make up/beauty/body/hair product preferences and your box is tailored to you! The subscriptions costs Β£12.95 including postage.

Here’s my first box!

Let’s take a look inside..



In every box you get 5 items, and January’s was even better as you got 2 full sized products included and I had a code to receive a free full sized Ciate Eyeliner, awesome.

Lets take a moment to talk about the packaging, how lovely are the boxes!? They are proper sturdy cardboard boxes that come with a super handy pull our draw that holds your products. It looks great and would be awesome for make up storage too.

This months box was white with a cute ‘yellow lines and dots’ pattern on it, it also had Birchbox printed onto the front in gold and white font. The pullout draw was solid yellow, a lovely colour choice to cheer you up in dreary January. I love the little booklet that you get inside the box that says ‘Sprinkle happiness’

Lets take a look at the bath and body products that came in my box…


At the top of the picture in the white tube is Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Enzymatic face rejuvenator, exfoliating cleanser. This is enriched with Papaya, Micro-crystals and Aloe. ‘Dramatically improve your skins texture to reveal softer, brighter and younger looking skin! This powerful exfoliator mimics professional microdermabrasion results using 99% natural ingredients.’

This cleanser makes your face feel so fresh and clean, I am loving this so far.

The white and blue tube to the right of the picture is Merci Handy New Wave Love & Hand cream. ‘Your are Hand’some. We know your hands like the back of our own. We’ve been taking care of them for a while now, but what if we could make them softer that you ever imagined? Introducing the creme de la creme…’

This hand cream smells A-MAZ-ING! I love the smell of this so much, I can literally smell it as I’m typing this, its so good. The cream leaves your hands feeling lovely and soft without the slimy/oily feel that some hand creams do.

In the light blue tube is Kebelo’s Clarifying shampoo. This shampoo claims to deeply cleanse and rejuvenate hair. ‘THE ULTIMATE DETOX, As you exfoliate your skin, you should exfoliate your hair. The Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo deep cleanses and rejuvenates, leaving hair revived. Give your hair the treatment it deserves.’

I used this on my hair yesterday morning and as I wash my hair every other day I was interested to see how my hair was today. It is much softer and fresher looking than it usually is on the day I don’t wash it and I haven’t needed to use any dry shampoo, bonus! (as I’m sure i probably use this too much anyway.)

and finally, in the gold tube is the Nuxe Paris Precious scented shower oil. The product in the tube is actually gold which makes it feel quite luxurious and it feels (and smells) lovely on the skin as you rub it in.

Lets take a look at the make up products that came in my box…


The make up products that came in my box this month were the Lord and Berry Conceal-It crayon concealer in the shade ‘Beige’. I used this product yesterday and this shade was a really good match for my skin, I was also pleased with the coverage it gave.

As a bonus item, using a discount code, I got a full sized Ciate London Fierce Flicks eyeliner pen in the shade ‘black’. I only have one other eyeliner product so I was pleased to receive this. I really like the nib on this as its like a felt tip pen, I’m hoping that as an eyeliner novice this will make it easier, I better get practising!

I cant wait for next months box!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and found this useful, especially if you are thinking about subscribing to Birchbox or gifting a 3 month subscription to a family member or friend, which I think would make a fab pressie!

Until next time,

My sale bargains! πŸ›

I love shopping so with our Christmas money in hand me and my sister went into town to see what we could pick up in the late December/January sales.

Here’s what I got!

First up I got this lovely fragrance set from Superdrug. 

The set is by Ghost and is their ‘Eclipse’ scent. The set came with a 30ml bottle of the fragrance and a cute rose gold compact mirror. It was only Β£15 and it smells amazing! I havnt had it before but me and my sister just thought it smelt so nice and great for popping in your bag!

Also from Superdrug I managed to grab a few bargains from Zoella’s Christmas range! 

I bought the ‘Best chums’ coin purses for me and my sister. These were only Β£2.99 in the sale. These are so cute.

I also bought her set of three make up bags, these are so pretty so I was so happy to see these in the sale. 

The large bag is clear with a coral strip across the top and Zoella written across the front in the same colour writing. The medium bag is a gorgeous pinky rose gold glitter, it’s beautiful and has Zoella written in white on the front. And finally, the small bag is a material one that says ‘Throw kindness round like confetti’ in rose gold font, I love that quote it’s so lovely.

These were Β£4.99 for all three. They are great to use as make up storage, to pop in your bag or for travelling.

And finally from Zoella’s range I got one of the Christmassy gift sets.

I love the design and packaging of Zoella’s Christmas range with the brown paper look background and printed on ribbon in the corners like it’s been gift wrapped.

This set is the ginger and vanilla fragrance set, pamper yourself with my brand new limited edition fragrance. It comes with a large bottle of the fragrance and a large bottle of her ginger cream body lotion. The design with the little gingerbread men is adorable.

I wasn’t sure about this scent to begin with but it’s definatly growing on me and is quite nice and sweet.

If you’ve seen my blog before you’ll know I love Lush and I missed the Boxing day sale (Gutted!) But when me and my sister went in they still had the ‘Butterbear’ bath bomb on offer. It was half price and only cost 98p!! 

I picked up two for me and two for my sister. I talked about this bath bomb in my Festive Lush Haul, it so lovely for your skin, it makes it super soft because it’s made of  cocoa butter, lovely.

From Boots I got an electric toothbrush. Sounds boring, I know! But highly useful and it was a bargin at Β£20, half the original price. 

Tim got one for Christmas so I thought I might as well get one too. It takes a bit of getting used to but your mouth does feel super clean πŸ‘

And finally, from Waterstones me and my sister picked up Sam and Nic Chapman’s new book ‘Face’. 

It’s a lovely book about all things to do with your face from skincare, make up with different tips and tricks. If you don’t know them Sam and Nic are the ladies behind the ‘Real technique’ make up brushes. I love watching their make up tutorials on their YouTube channel ‘Pixiwoo’ so I can’t wait to look through it properly.

So those are my bargains! I was super happy with them 😊

What did you managed to pick up in the sales? 

Until next time,

Christmas eve part 1: Christmas arts & crafts

Only one day to go!! Im doing Christmas eve in two parts again like last year as theres been lots going on these last few days, super festive! 

How is it Christmas eve already, this is so mad, where has December gone?!? I’m going to miss all the festive build up, its one of the best bits of Christmas.

I found an awesome craft set from Wilko in town and had to get it to do with Noah, I knew he would enjoy it. 

In the set you get 12 ceramic Christmas themed ornaments, mini pots of paint, a paintbrush, 2 tubes of glitter and string to hang them up. What made this set even more amazing is that when I got it it was reduced to half price making it a bargin Β£2.50!! I couldn’t believe it. 

Full price it would have been Β£5 which is still really good as it’s great fun, brilliant value and these would make adorable homemade Christmas presents too.

Here’s me and Noah having a go at some crafty arty fun…

He really enjoyed himself which is the main thing 😊 & Auntie Ro Ro did too hehe.

Part 2 will be up later! Our annual Christmas partyπŸŽ‰

In my beauty advent calender today…

Today was a bother lipstick in a lovely autumnal plum colour.

Here’s a swatch…
