Whats In my New Orla Kiely Make Up Bag?

April 26, 2015

 When I was contacted about the new Spring/ Summer Orla Kiely travel wash bag collection I just new it was something I wanted to share with you and something so beautiful to update a Spring make up bag. I am in love with the beautiful square flower design, the colours compliment it perfectly. This is a true Orla Kiely pattern, something I enjoyed as a Art and Design student in college. The collection is now available from John Lewis nation wide. There are three parts to this collection starting from the make up bag shown above, there are a couple more products available to purchase. One is a large travel wash bag which would be handy for traveling this Summer and a medium travel wash bag. My make up bag would be perfect to fit in my essentials for a weekend away, it is the perfect size to fit in all my favourite pieces. The quality and feel of the bag is great and it is a real treat for me, its made a huge difference to my Spring make up update.
 In this post I wanted to show you the beautiful Orla Kiely make up bag but I thought I would show you a couple new pieces to my make up bag. Starting with the latest foundation to my collection, I am a huge fan of Revlon and this foundation has been great. It truly gives an air brushes look to the skin, it glides on easy and blends really well. I love the soft, medium coverage finish to this foundation. There is only one down side to this product, it has big pieces of glitter in the formula which I dislike but other than that I most likely will still wear it. 



I have a new mascara favourite which I have been loving for the past coupe months now. It is from a brand I have used and loved for years, Rimmel. It has an interesting plastic wand but it works wonders, it leaves you with thick black eye lashes. The kind of look I always go for when looking for a new mascara. This mascara is a new addition to my make up bag but one I want to use this Spring/ Summer. It never leaves you with any clumps and the final out come is perfect thick lashes. My all time favourite setting power ran out just before pay day so I picked up this Collection pressed power to just try before I got paid. I am impressed because I never change from my Rimmel one, this leaves my foundation in place all day and its light on the skin. I got mine in the shade Ivory which works well along side my foundations, excited to use this setting power more. If you fancy a read I have a full review of the Go Pro travel sized make up brushes from Make Up Revolution here. 

What make up do you recommend for Spring?



Make Up Revolution- The Go Pro Brush Set

April 25, 2015

The Go Pro set contains four mini brushes, perfect for traveling. 


This is a new launch from Make Up Revolution, who last year took over my make up bag for a good reason. I am a huge fan of the brand, they work hard and the outcome, beautiful products that are kind on your purse yet you cannot fault the quality. This new launch is no different, when I got this in the post I was super excited to share it with you. I love mini products and this set would be perfect to take away on holiday this year. I have a brush set I use all the time but for taking them out with you they can be bulky. 

In this set you get four mini brushes containing a face brush, foundation brush, angled brush and a mini eye shadow brush. This is all I need to complete my every day looks, I am in need of a new foundation brush too. I want to order their other brush set too soon, the quality of the products are amazing. I love the little pouch they come in, perfect for keeping them safe and together in my hand bag. This would be the perfect touch up kit when I head into London for events or to keep in my bag handy for long days. 

The Go Pro brush set is made from synthetic hair, they are good quality brushes for a small price of £4.95*. I am on a mission to find a new foundation so I am excited to start using this set more and more. The all you need set on the go, perfect for a little gift too. 


what do you think of the mini brush set?

3 Years + As A beauty Blogger..

So many amazing memories.
Today I wanted to look back on what I have achieved since starting my blog Kemples. I just wanted to remind myself how well I have done with my hobby and how much I really love doing this. I have been reminded by some amazing people lately that I should be proud of what I have done and to keep going. Blogging means the world to me and I can see myself doing this for years to come. So many more blog posts to write and so many more memories to collect. I sometimes get lost in a ball of negative thinking and this week has been one of those weeks, so when I feel sad I turn to my blog. It gives me something positive to do and after typing up a post I start to feel a lot more focused. 
2014 felt like the year for my blog, I met so many amazing people and I got to attend amazing events. Being invited to events is something I will forever be shocked by and super grateful for. I enjoy meeting new people and from my events I have gained so many new friends. I am so inspired by the blogging community so it is nice to meet the people behind the blogs. The support and love you get from bloggers means everything to me, it helps me stay focused on such a positive part of my life. 

I know I have said this before but being nominated for a Cosmopolitan award felt like nothing else in the world. I still feel so happy to have been reconised as an established Beauty blogger, it gave me the drive to push my blog further and to really enjoy myself. Talking about things I love and collecting memories through my blog. Documenting my life, making new friends and having my own space on the internet to be creative, this is something I want to do my whole life. Having my blog as a hobby and growing as a person through it, soon I may pluck up the courage to start a YouTube channel..

As a young girl I wanted to work for a magazine but this is my adult dream. Even though I may still be a small blogger in this community but I am so pleased to be part of it. Working with brands I adore and being sent products to review is something I will never get used to. I only work with brands I would use or love personally, recommending products to you is something I take very seriously and I know you respect me to do so.

I hope to continue this journey and I am excited to see where it takes me. I have a note book full of pages of ideas to do this year. I am on such a great path to feeling me again and I know blogging is a huge part of this road. Thank you for just over two thousand four hundred Bloglovin followers! <3 

My Top 5 Blog Tips:
  • Never compare your blog to another blog, a blog is unique.
  • start a blog about a subject you are passionate about.
  • go to events by yourself or tweet about the event and meet up  with other bloggers. I have met so many amazing new people doing this. 
  • be yourself
  • promote your blog via twitter and join in with the blog chats.
