A visit to Dogs Trust!

So today's post is very exciting and one that I know so many of you are going to love! Last week, I was kindly invited to the Dogs Trust Centre at of course I had to share my experience with you!
I'm sure a lot of you will of already heard of Dogs Trust, but just in case you haven't...Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK and they have set the goal to make sure that all dogs have a happy life! They look after thousands of dogs at all the different centres across the UK and they re-home dogs to give them a forever home with new families which is amazing! They do some amazing work for dogs and I have always loved Dogs Trust, so been able to work with them to create a post and a video was incredible! 

I went to the Leeds centre and this one is the closet to me, but there are 21 centres across the UK in total. I went with my friend Nia as she kindly helped film and take photos for me. This was the first time that I have visited this centre and I was amazed by the size of it. People always expect adoption centres to be small, dark and depressing but they are spacious, full of life and really great! We were greeted by Sarah who showed us around and a behind the scenes. She was so so lovely and all of the staff there were very kind and helpful! They all clearly love what they do and work so hard to make sure that all the dogs are happy and healthy.

We were showed around the whole of the centre and I loved it so much! There are quite a lot of dogs there to be re-homed and I wanted to take them all home with me. There is a public section where you can walk around a big room and see all of the dogs. They each have their own space inside and outside which is really spacious and clean for them. Some dogs are put together too which is so nice and they clearly love the company. All the dogs were so adorable and it makes me so sad to think of the things some of them have been through. Who could hurt or abandon such beautiful animals? Each dog is thought about individually and the staff make sure that all the specific needs for each dog are met, which is great!

Tanya Burr Cosmetics

For today's post, I wanted to share with you the beauty products that I own from Tanya Burr Cosmetics! This is a brand that I have loved for a very long time and I have recently picked up some new things that I am obsessed with. I'm sure you all know who Tanya Burr is...but she is a really amazing YouTuber who I have loved for so long! When she released her beauty line, I knew I had to try some of the products! She has released so many more products since the beginning and it's now one of my favourites. It's so affordable and the quality of these products are insane! I love that the brand is growing more and more and it's also great to see so many products sold out too. I thought I would share with you my collection and tell you why I love them so much.

First of all...look how beautiful the products are! They defiantly look a lot more expensive than they are and I really love the look of the whole collection, it's so easy to take pictures of these! Tanya Burr Cosmetics consists of Nail Polish, Face Palettes, Eye Shadow Palettes, Eyelashes, Illuminators, Lipgloss, Lipsticks and my favourite...Liquid Lipsticks! She has also released lots of new gifts for Christmas which are really gorgeous!

The first thing I have are these two eyeshadow palettes. The first one is the Hollywood Eye Palette and this one consists of your basic nude and brown shades. It's the perfect everyday palette that I think everyone would love! The shades are really pigmented and pretty. I love the size of this palette as it fits perfectly in any bag and is really good quality. The next palette is the Enchanted Dream Eye Shadow Palette and this one also consists of a lot of brown shades but these are very matte which I love! The shades are a little bit darker than the first palette but I have been loving wearing this look at the minute. Again, the shades are so pigmented and pretty! I love the packaging of this palette and they both have mirrors inside too which is so handy. These are both priced at £5.99 so amazing price for the quality!
