Zoella Beauty


Zoe sugg known as zoella launched a beauty collection a few months ago which features bath and body  products and is primarily about pampering and delicious scents.

The range consists of a blissfully body mist,soak opera bath and body cream.creamy madly dreamy body lotion,fizz bar and super cute lets glow candle as well as two makeup bags.

The packaging is so pretty and each product has Zoe's beautifully written logo.

The Same fragrance continues through the collection and I thinks it's lovely - very fruity and sweet.

It's clear that Zoe has had control over the collection from the smells,packaging design and products she wanted.

I purchased three items from the range - fizz bar,soak opera bath and body cream and let's glow candle.

I am happy with all of my products and they are such a reasonable price and if you enjoy pampering and relaxing I suggest you go and check them out !

What's your favourite product to pamper yourself with ?

October Favourites


I can't believe how quick 2014 is going ! We're in November already which means next month is christmas ...... 

October hasn't been the best month for me personally with some upsetting occasions.However I did rekindle with some of my favourites.

1. Pumpkin Spice Latte - 

Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes make my fall,they are my favourite hot drink of all time.They have brought out their holiday drinks and I'm also a fan of the gingerbread latte.

2. Cream eyeshadow -

At the moment I am in love with cream eyeshadow.They are  so easy to apply and seem to last longer than powder eyeshadow for me.Do you know of any nice cream shadows ? Let me know as I'm looking for more !

3. Flannel Shirts -

In the fall I love layering up my outfits and a shirt over the top of a regular t-shirt is my fav everyday outfit.New look have got a great range of checkered flannel shirts.

4. Pumpkin candle -

Candles are a must in the autumn/winter and im obsessed with pumpkin scents, at the moment I have two from TK MAXX and  yummm......I could eat them ..... But I won't! 

5. Bourjois nail polish remover -

I've heard a lot of  talk about this product ,I only recently purchased it this month. Bourjois magic nail polish remover really is magic. It's so easy to use you just put your finger in the pot and twist you finger and wolah the nail varnish has gone. 

There great for if you make a mistake and need to remove polish from one nail without accindently removing all 

6. Grey throw - 

This is a slightly random favourite however this primark throw will change your nights. Your cosy movie nights in will be perfect.

I keep mine on my bed and it's just oh so soft so I deffo recommend a good comfy throw for the winter.

What is your favourite candle ?

Relaxing Products Collection

Hi I'm Jenny May from the blog Origin Of Style :) I am delighted to do a guest post on Carlas life. This post is a collection of the items I use to relax:


I got this candle from Homebase and it was only £4. The burning time is 120 hours which is amazing value! It smells amazing and reminds me of Christmas which is obviously a bonus! 


Lavender scented spray one of my favourite relaxing products! As you can see I have one from boots that I have had for a while but don't use as much any more. But for my birthday I got 'Ragdale Hall' pillow mist from Marks and Spencer which is great. It comes out in a very fine mist and the scent stays in your room for a long time and would definitely recommend it.


Finally I have a matching product to the spray which is the Temple Balm. This is definitely my favourite of all of them. The packaging is so cute and the balm itself is easy to apply to the temples. The lavender oil scent is very strong and honestly is so relaxing at night!
