Summer Clothes Haul

I have been stocking up on summer clothes recently, not only preparing for my holiday soon but also because currently the weather is so beautiful and hot. Currently there is a massive summer sale across alot of clothing stores and I picked up a few bargains. 

New Obsession

My New Obsession, The Nike Free 5.0 Training Shoes. I never thought I'd be so obsessed with a pair of shoes but I am. They are so comfy and lightweight, they just make walking or running so much more easier. These shoes are so basic, with the monochrome black and white so they can go with alot of outifts, even if you're not planning on going running in them you can still dress them up or down.

Budget Hand Cream

Is this the best hand cream ever!? Soap and Glory hand food is a staple hand cream for alot of people. It's a beautiful cream that you can apply whenever you want and as often as you like. Soap and Glory have recently added a 250ml pump bottle to their collection of hand food, and this is a staple on my bedside. It's easier to apply and with the pump you don't have to worry about dipping your fingers into a pot of cream.

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer

Excuse the dirty sponge head and brush... You want a real review? You're gonna get dirty applicators! I've heard so many bloggers rave about this under eye concealer and for weeks I've been debating whether to purchase this or not. You can see I finally caved! Every time I went into Boots, I stared at it. Picked it up put it back. This was done several times until I said to myself you're going to boots for this! Since purchasing this I haven't looked back.

Turning your Wardrobe Inside Out

As the seasons change, so does what we wear. We change what we wear to suit the weather, alot of the times buying new items but forgetting about the old ones. I've made a plan to go through everything in my wardrobe, try it on and decide whether I want to keep it or not. My wardrobe is looking a little cluttered but I also in need of some new clothes, and as I've recently been buying a few to suit the summer months I thought I would change things up abit. Sometimes, I forget what I actually have in my wardrobe because the things I don't wear as often get shoved into a draw. 

Currently Loving...#1

Recently, I've been scrolling through alot of different beauty & fashion bloggers and their sites. I've found alot I'm enjoying and their posts are really good reads as well. Beauty, Fashion and Food. (All a girl needs, right!)

London Lipsticks

In my recent drugstore haul, post here I found the Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipsticks in Shades in Love with Ginger and Nottinghill Nude. 

Simple Healthy Breakfast

If you're a foodie like me and want something easy, simple but healthy for you're breakfast then I've got just the thing. This really filled me up until dinner and I felt really refreshed and full but felt like I was giving my body the important nutrients it needs.

Fifty Facts About Me

I thought it was about time I let you know more about me and my life and thought the '50 Facts About Me' tag would be a great way to do so.I struggled getting reaching 50 but in the end I got there.

Staying Hydrated

I understand how important it is for yourself and your body to stay hydrated and this means drinking two to three litres of water every day. Now, that's alot of water and even I struggle drinking that much each day. But understanding the benefits from drinking enough water per day spurs me on to completing this task. This means regularly topping up your cup from the tap or constantly having a water bottle to hand. 

Summer's To Do List

Summer is here and in full swing, and because of that I thought I would take inspiration from this season and put together a list of things I would like to do and get done before this seasons come and gone and before I know it, it's snowing outside and my winter coats are back out!

Mini Mascara Mayhem

I've recently come across my small collection of Mini Mascara's and thought they'd be great for when I'm travelling. Who doesn't love a mini beauty product? Some I bought, some I got as a free gift with purchase and others I got with a beauty magazine. 

Product Empties

I've been going through alot of different products at the moment, yet some of my old favourites I've found hidden away in my draws. I haven't been able to stop using them, until now when I've run out of them! (Back to the shops I go...)

For the Love of Coffee

Not your usual blog post, and to be honest I haven't seen anyone blogging on their love of coffee. Mine's more than a love it's turning into an obsession. So much so that I can't wake up in the morning unless I have a good old fashioned brew! I can't even go a whole day without having atleast 2 or three cups of coffee.
When I'm feeling down or I've had a bad day I like to get into my pajamas or comfy clothes, sit back with a cup of coffee and relax on my own away from everyone just so I can have some time to think and un-wind.

Bronzers: Powder Vs. Cream

Two Bronzers, One Powder, One Cream. Which one would you choose! It's between the Bourjous D√©lice de Poudre Bronzing Powder and Bourjois D√©lice Paris Bronzing Primer. Both beautiful Bronzers, and both great to contour with. Both smell like chocolate, but the Powder looks like a bar of chocolate and the Primer looks like chocolate pudding. These should come with a warning sign - do not eat! (It is tempting.)

No Added Nonsense

These days, we're so busy we barely have time to remember to eat 5 fruits and vegetables per day let alone keeping up on what we've already ate. 
I've recently come across the brand BEAR who have an array of different dried fruits and promise there's no added sugars or preservatives, it's just fruit. It's just a very simple and honest brand and these are perfect if you're on the go and you can pack these in your packed lunch or throw in your bag as a snack. In each pack there are two different types of fruit, so getting in your five a day couldn't be easier. 
In the first pack there's Mango and Pineapple and the second Strawberries and Cherries.

June's Beauty Magazines

There are some fantastic beauty bits in this months beauty magazines, all of which are incredibly affordable considering the brands of make-up you're able to pick up. There's plenty to choose from as well, bargain!

What's in my Bag?

I recently posted a 'What's in my Make-up Bag?' post, and I thought it would be fun to post a what's in my everyday bag. A read alot of other similar bloggers posts and now I think I have it down to a T. Everything below has been linked up to past reviews, don't say I don't do anything for you guys!

Bronzer & Blush in one

I recently stumbled across this in the drugstore, I've never tried a two-in-one product before and why not? Perfect for travelling or if you can only take a few products in your make-up bag, with this you don't have to leave one behind! 
I love the Maybelline brand and have tried almost everything from there, so when I realised I'd missed something I had to pick it up. 

Q Radiance Body Spray

This post might be abit TMI at times, but I wanted to share my new love for Q Radiance Body Spray. I've been eyeing this up for a while and I finally caved in and bought one to test out and give a trial run. I've not seen a post on deodorant but I could be wrong?!

Currently Listening To

I'm currently loving listening to alot of different songs,in thepast few months alot of new artists have come to light and released some really good songs. Alot of them are really catchy and great either to sing or dance along too. But, I could only choose my favourite ones so far because the list would be as long as my arm. I picked four current songs I've been listening to non-stop, driving people crazy with because I've putting them on repeat for hours at a time. Anyway, let's get on with this shall we!?

Removing your Nail Polish

There's so many different products out there in the Beauty Market to remove nail polish and each one caters to different needs. Whether you want a nail polish remover to take extra care of your nails by strengthening them, giving extra nourishment and moisture once the polish has been removed, some are also acetone free and more suitable to sensitive nails. There's loads out there yet most of us just pick up the standard Nail Varnish Remover without even thinking about it. We give everything else on our bodies extra care, so why not our nails?!

Kate Spade Wallet

I've been searching everywhere for a new purse for a while and I've been scrolling through Kate Spade to find something beautiful. I found the Cherry Lane Lacey Wallet in Black, it is gorgeous. I have been absolutely obsessed with this since I got it! 

Nude Eye Make-up Look

I never usually wear eyeshadow but at the moment I'm really loving subtle colours on my eyes, whether I use one shadow or more I'm enjoying this make-up look for the summer. I think this look will suit anyone and make your eye colours pop. When I wear this look my eyes appear much more awake and brighter and makes my overall make-up look very summery and dewy.

Nail Polish Storage

I love this type of storage idea, especially for your nail polishes. You can see all the different colours, it looks beautiful and vibrant sitting on my desk. 
Really draws my eyes in and adds something different to an ordinary make-up station/desk and a cute, simple idea that looks adorable. 

Bedside Table Essentials

Everyone's essentials are different compared to others. It doesn't look like alot but I rely on these products so much, especially when I wake up in the middle of the night and I either need a touch up or because I'm thirsty.

An Escentual Order

I needed to stock up on a few products and found myself scrolling through Escentual for some new things to try. I needed to stock up on Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray and Cicaplast Repairing Balm and found myself spending more money than I first imagined. 

June Favourites

How quickly has this year gone let alone June, it's flown by.
I've been testing alot of new products throughout June and only a few made it into my current routine, I've also re-discovered a few products that I already had.
Anyway, it's June Favourites time guys! I've done previous posts on a few of my favourites already so I link those up for you guys.

Drugstore Beauty Haul

Hey Guys, recently I've been on a massive hunt for summer make-up
products and this was done over several trips to Boots. In an effort to spend too much money or anymore than I should I wrote a list of products I wanted and tried to stick to these. I was looking for certain products and the ones I wanted seemed to be out of stock for ages. Finally, I got the ones I wanted and I am obsessed ever so slightly with these products!
