stila beauty favourites ♥

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend the Stila Glitter Underground event. I couldn't wait to try out their new products and to also test out a few of the classic, hero products. It is safe to say that glitter is back with a bang, the 70's era has played a huge role in the new Stila collection and I couldn't wait to get swatching! The Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow* really stood out to me, if you know my make-up routine, I am pretty much a plain, matte type of make-up lover but I really loved the liquid eye shadow simply because it's a fresh twist on glitter eye products.

prosecco beauty treats ♥

I am feeling incredibly ill at the moment so last night I decided to run a hot bath, this always makes me happy and takes my mind off things. I was kindly sent a gift from Qwerkity* last week and I thought I would give the bath salts a try. The bath salts are part of a Prosecco gift set* and if you are a big Prosecco lover, then you will certainly be a fan of this beauty bundle. The set includes 100g of bath salts and a Prosecco flavoured lip balm, both are handmade. I only used a small amount of the bath salts but you really don't need to add much, I had the water extra hot too and as I mixed the bath salts around, the scent was instant.

netflix - the tv playlist ♥

Image credit: Tumblr
It is time for another Netflix post! This week I wanted to talk about TV shows. I was actually quite poorly last week so I had the whole 7 days to enjoy a Netflix binge. It really is a life saver! I thought it would be nice to round up my favourite shows that you can really get your teeth into. There is a mix of true crime, history, romance and comedy. I hope you like my selection! I have put together quite a few Netflix playlists, including superhero films, thrillers, musicals, feel good shows and even a tearjerker list. Let me know if you are looking for a particular genre, I love putting this Netflix post together! You can see my previous Netflix posts here. Let's get started! 
American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson 
I was really excited when I saw that Netflix added the OJ Simpson case to the TV section this week. I sadly missed the series when it aired but I will certainly be adding this to my watch list today. American Crime Story is a true crime series that is based on a particular event. The first season is based on the OJ Simpson murder trial, the second season will be about Hurricane Katrina and the third will be about the murder of Gianni Versace. If you aren't aware of the OJ Simpson case, he was a very popular NFL player who was charged with murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman. 
Autopsy: The Last 24 Hours...
So far this isn't looking like a very chirpy playlist, but I find true crime documentaries really interesting. The Autopsy series re-creates the last 24 hours of a particular celebrity that has passed away, the list includes Whitney Houston, River Phoenix, Robin Williams, Joan Rivers and quite a few more. Forensic specialists analyse the autopsy reports of the celebrity and they give their opinion about the last 24 hours of their life. I've actually been watching the autopsy report about Nicole Simpson, it definitely gives your more background information before you start the American Crime Story series.
The Tudors
If you remember watching Bend it Like Beckham, then you will probably have a crush on the beautiful Jonathan Rhys Meyers. I was absolutely obsessed with him when I was a teenager and when he starred in The Tudors, I began to appreciate how amazing he is as an actor. Jonathan plays Henry VIII and the series takes you back to the early 1500's during his reign as King. It focuses on his marriages and certainly includes drama, romance and of course, history. 
Prison Break
Prison Break is certainly one of my top 5 TV series. The story line is incredibly smart, entertaining and you will definitely become addicted. The story line begins with Michael Scofield trying to rob a bank, he is sent to prison where you meet one of the lead characters, Lincoln Burrows. He is currently on death row for murder and it is later revealed that Michael and Lincoln are brothers. Michael is determined to break Lincoln out of prison and the first season revolves around his unbelievable plan to escape while also trying to survive in the prison environment.   
If you are looking for something light and funny, Miranda is one of my favourite comedies. I would watch this show on repeat at university every week and there is still something really awkward, amazing and charming about the cast and plot. Miranda is constantly trying to fit in, she is slightly taller than her boarding school friends and she finds herself quite awkward in day to day tasks (I think she is my spirit animal). If you are looking for a lighthearted show then Miranda is definitely a good watch when you are feeling lazy and not ready to move from your bed all day, don't forget the Pizza!

brand spotlight - charlotte tilbury ♥

I was reading a few of my old blog posts yesterday and I found a collection from 2015, it was a brand spotlight on Caudalié and Shu Uemura. I had completely forgot that I had started a brand spotlight series so I thought today would be a nice idea to restart it. With Fairytale Kiss, I do want you to visit my blog and find a review about everything - from beauty products to healthy snacks and I want to be 100% honest about what brands I love. I really adore the idea of doing a brand spotlight and saying why I think you should/shouldn't try their products. I was walking through Peter Jones today (where I spend 99% of my time) and I found myself walking towards the Charlotte Tilbury counter.

#tiptalk - how I get a perfect night's sleep ♥

For my recent posts, I've been talking about how I relax and unwind. I do find myself feeling anxious and stressed quite a bit but I have learnt a few tips and tricks along the way to keep myself relaxed and calm. I've had a combination of being ill and sleepy, plus I keep waking up in the middle of the night so I've been feeling quite cranky and tired. I thought it would be a nice idea and a fun post to tell you about my sleeping tricks that ultimately help soothe any stress and any eye bags!

the whimsical fashion colouring book ♥

I'm really not sure why I find colouring pencils so relaxing. With the cold winter nights still looming, I love getting into bed, making a hot chocolate and grabbing a colouring book. Adult colouring books are certainly in high demand and I love that they can help you relax and unwind. I was recently sent The Whimsical Fashion Colouring Bookto test drive and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. The illustrations are simply beautiful and I really like that you can draw without being too accurate. I've seen quite a few colouring books that look really detailed and this just doesn't appeal to me.
