Stuff I love!
I just wanted to share some of the stuff I am currently loving and couldnt live without! Going clockwise we have:
My organiser/Diary/Notepad! My god if I didnt have this i'd be lost. The obvious is Birthdays, shifts at work, plans i've made etc.. But I also use it for my savings plan, Diet plan, Holiday ideas, Blogging ideas etc.. You name it and it'll be in my organiser! The thought of leaving the house without it gives me shivers haha, maybe i'm a secret control freak? Oh well..
Next is my 'Jimmy Choo perfume'. I only got this on my Birthday 8 days ago but thats it, the search for the 'one' has been called off. I absolutely love it! Its really sweet, feminine and a little exotic (exotic being the word my boyfriend used) Although its sweet and feminine it has a really sexy smell to it! and my boyfriend seems to love it which can only be a good thing! haha!
Next is my 'L'oreal Lash Renewal.' I'm lucky enough to have what I consider nice eyelashes and in my opinion i'd like to keep them that way! As they say, prevention is better than cure :) I've only been using it 3 days in which I havent seen a difference yet but after its been 2 weeks and I have formed a fair opinion i'll write a proper review on it :)
Then we have the newest addition to my make up bag... my 'Mac Mineralize Blush in Hang Loose'. My auntie works for Mac so i'm lucky enough to get my mitts on products for cheap and on B'days & Xmas :)
I must admit I was a little worried when I saw it. It's a duo blush with half a lovely pink and the other a lilac colour. I was only worried when I saw the Lilac to be honest and remember thinking "Who wears purple blush?" haha! Well it just goes to show that you should never judge a book by its cover. In no way does it come out Lilac. Its the best highlighter powder i've ever used. You can use the pink first, then sweep the lilac over it on your cheekbones or you can use them both together. It gives a really natural glow that doesnt look glittery or too shiny. I use this on my cupids brow and in the corners of my eyes to liven things up at ridiculous o'clock in the morn.
Next is the Soap and Glory 'Righteous Butter'. Its really thick, smells devine and banishes any dry patches! I find it works best just after a bath or shower. Its not cheap (retails at just over £10 in Boots) but its a large 300ml tub and little goes along way. I can still smell/feel it the next day and It's been my saviour throughout winter!
Then we have the celeb/public favourite cleanser 'Liz Earle clean and polish' This stuff is so good i'm going to do a seperate post on it. My mum bought me the kit for my birthday and I already cannot think of using any other cleaner on my face.
This weather has been cruel to the hands and rooting through my mums product draw I came across this beauty! 'Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy' this stuff is a miracle cure for really dry hands. I was using 'Garnier Hand Repair' but as good as it was it didn't really help in the long run. After using this product just once I noticed the difference straight away. It really does work! It contains Shea Butter as the main ingredient and I havent had a dry hand since :) Its not cheap though which is the only down side. £14 for 50ml but again, a little goes a long way and it instantly soothes and hydrates!
Second to last is my new favourite Nail Polish! 'No7 in Fairy Cake' I love pink nail polishes and was extremely happy when I found this one in Boots on its on where the foundation was. Random I know haha! anyway, Its a really pale Pink and reminds me of pink icing on a cupcake... Mind you I guess that's why they call it Fairy Cake..! haha!
Lastly is my 'Benefit Smoking Eyes Kit' this kit is brilliant! I've used this everday since I my boyfriend bought it for me in October! Please see full review here.
