Do you need a Pal?

Today’s post is a post I have never done before, but when the creators of a brand new social app asked me for a review, I had to say yes! I spend a lot of my time clued to my phone usually on social media so a new app to try really felt exciting and just my cup of tea!


While this post is sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own and honest.I will only work with brands and products that I feel my readers would enjoy or I feel would be a perfect fit for my blog and brand.

What is the app?

30725570_10209306911668422_3963707257417367552_nThe App Pal describes itself as a free app where you can meet people around you, and you are able to create or join activities and make new friends in the same areas to you. I believe this describes the app perfectly.


I believe the app is available for all android and Iphone users. And can be downloaded here…. 

Is it easy to use?

The app gives you a little tutorial on how to use the app. I personally found this really helpful as the overall look of the app was a little confusing to work out. After the tutorial I felt I had a really good idea about how to get the most out of the app.

Who would benefit from the app?

I personally wouldn’t use this app, I love the concept of meeting new people however this triggers my anxiety massively! I believe the app would be a really useful tool for people that have moved to new areas and wanting to meet new people with similar interests. It would be perfect for university students in particular.

Would I recommend it to a friend?

Overall Thoughts

I love this app and I feel it could really appeal to some people, however for me it’s just not for me and I will be uninstalling. The overall app runs really smoothly and I have not come across any glitches or anything. The interface is bright appealing and overall really easy to read. I also love that the app is free! I really think this app could really help people that may feel isolated and lonely and with that in mind I rate this app even more.

I would rate this app a good 6/10!

I hope you don’t mind a really different kind of post from me, but I actually really enjoyed reviewing something a little different from the norm. I’ll be back with a beauty related post next so make sure your subscribed to me so you don’t miss it!

Cheerio For Now,

Loreal True Match Foundation Review

I have been on a constant life mission to find the perfect foundation for me that does not break the bank and gives me a flawless imperfection free skin. I know that this product is likely to never exist but I love trying lots of new foundations in the hope.

Lately I have been using the Bourjois healthy mix foundation and I loved it! however during the last few weeks it started to react with my skin slightly and turn a shade of orange when applied to the skin. I wanted to change my foundation up, I wasn’t happy.

I headed to my local boots to see what foundations they had. That would fit my price bracket. Money was tight (its nearly payday!) so I set myself the budget of £10. I was surprised that so many of the foundations fit into this price bracket so I had plenty of choice!

After looking at what felt like hundreds of foundations I happily walked away with the Loreal True Match Foundation in the shade 2.R/2.C Vanille Rose. This foundation was on sale for £8.99 I was happy.


Here is what I thought…


I have always struggled with acne (read my skin story here) so I have lots of acne scaring and redness that I would like to cover. I would say this foundation had a medium to high coverage. I was fairly happy with the coverage it gave so I only felt I needed to apply a small amount of concealer to some tricky to cover areas.  To help give you an idea of what the coverage is like for the foundation here is a before and after picture…


The left picture shows my skin after my morning skin care routine along with the Maybeline baby skin primer. and The picture on the right shows my completed make up look for the day. I kept it super simple so only wore…

  • Foundation
  • Concealer
  • Blusher
  • Setting powder
  • Eye brow pencil
  • Mascara


The foundation can be built up really well, I used a good two pumps of the foundation and built it up gradually. I used the Real Techniques expert face brush to apply the foundation and removed any stroke marks using the Real Techniques beauty blender. this is the way I always apply my foundation and this method seemed to work with the foundation equally aswell.


The consistency of the foundation felt really creamy, which I loved. It also felt rather moisturising on the skin which felt lovely when applying it. It felt like a similar consistency to my bourjois healthy mix foundation although a little bit thicker. I have no complaints with the consistency at all, rather pleasant.

So far I am super impressed with this foundation and I cant wait to try some more things from loreal. this is a brand a never tend to reach for but I will definitely be reaching for their products more!

Cheerio For Now,
