Adexe Mini Sistine Snow White Watch Review

If I'm honest I haven't worn a watch in quite a few years. I think that's mainly because I haven't found the perfect one, until now. I was kindly gifted a watch from Adexe new Mini Sistine Collection. 

"Sistine, the most famous chapel in the world, located in the Vatican city. The timepiece is inspired by the planning of the city featuring the domed chapel at the backend and supporting the front yard". 
The Mini Sistine Collection consists of four watches in different strap styles, a wide range of colours, with a smaller case at a low price point. The watches start at £79. I have the Mini Sistine in Snow White(£79).

My Current Beauty Favourites

This year is going by way too fast for me. We are nearing the end of April and we are heading towards Summer. Well, I say that but it's been 20+ degrees here in the UK for the past few days. It feels like Summer at the moment. Now, don't get me wrong, this hot weather is incredible, BUT I would hate to live in a country where it is hot on a daily basis. Phew, I don't know if my body could cope with that. 

That aside, I've noticed I haven't been keeping up with my monthly favourites. The last time I wrote about my favourite beauty products was back in January, where I did a round up of my 2018 favourites from different categories- Skincare, Makeup and Hair. Quite a lot has changed since then. Some of my most loved products from 2018 have been dropped for something new. No doubt it will probably change in a month or so, but until then, these are my current beauty favourites.

My Favourite Nude Lip Combination

I'm not that girl that wears understated, natural makeup. Nah, that's just not me. My everyday makeup consists of a defined brow followed by bold eye makeup with flawless skin, a nude lip and plenty of highlighter. I've attempted to do subtle makeup several times but I have a habit of adding more and more product until it becomes the complete opposite of subtle. It just didn't work at all. 

I love the drama on the eyes paired with a nude lip. A nude lip can be seen as playing it a little safe but I would choose that over a bright lip anyday. It's all I ever seem to wear lately. In fact, there's three nude lip products that I haven't stopped wearing lately. I haven't used anything else on my lips for months now. They are the perfect nude lip combination.

Saying Goodbye to Beauty Division

2013 was the year I first started this blog of mine. It's bizarre to think it's been nearly seven whole years since that very first day that I posted my first blog post. Oh, back then my photography was terrible, taking flatlays on my parents bathroom floor or on my bed in poor lighting with my mobile phone. I'd post daily for months on end. I didn't care about how my photos looked, how my blog looked and I was rarely active on Instagram. Now, fast forward a couple of years and here we are. I've done a complete 360 turn.

I first started my blog when I was 19/20. It was about a year or so after I finished college and it was just before I started my first job. I was at a loss of what to do. I had in my head for quite a long time that I wanted to start a blog, however I always had that niggling thought in my head that perhaps I wasn't good enough. It sounds a bit silly, but I really did believe that.

In the very beginning I was focussed on beauty content, talking about all the newest product launches, showing my beauty hauls and reviewing every product going, but soon that changed when I became pregnant with my first little boy. I posted pregnancy updates and I talked a little about my life as a mummy. My blog took a different direction for a while, however I never completely stopped talking about beauty. That will always be my niche.
