Bath time

For someone who loves baths I have possibly the most boring bath routine. I work weird hours and a lot of the time bath time means get clean and get out. Rather than relax have me time.

No matter what I’ll always be sat on my phone in the bath. Often I write my blog posts whilst in the bath. And I always bring my IPad to listen to music I just cannot sit in silence. If I’m having a relaxing bath sometimes even Netflix. I’ve learnt to take advantage of these luxuries whenever possible.

I hate sitting around in a face mask, I think I’ve mentioned it in a previous post. So I usually apply one before I get in the bath, I’m currently trying out the Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask. I’ve fell head over heals in love with their products and they’re currently on offer in Boots if you’re interested. If I’m not trying out a new face mask I’ll be using a trusty Lush face mask.

Boring as it is I shave and this is what I use. I have a love hate relationship with these blades, I just hate hate hate using them when you open a new one.

I never ever in my life have been fussy about body washes/shower gel’s I’ve always used whatever. But about a year ago I picked up a Body Shop one and I’ve been stuck on them ever since. Every now and then I’ll pick up one from else where in the hope it will replace the more expensive Body Shop ones but I’m too fond of them and I’m always drawn back to them. They are amazing though! 
Hair wise you guys all know I use the Head & Shoulders Scalp Relief shampoo I won’t wash my hair without this. Although I’m not a fan of the smell it really does help! On top of that I will use another shampoo and then a conditioner recently I’ve been using the Garneir Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner but I tend to change it up a lot. The majority of the time I’m drawn to shampoo and conditioners with coconut scents but I have tried a few apple scented shampoos that’s left my hair smelling gorgeous. I like switching up the scents every now and then so I notice the smells. 
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again there is absolutely no point in using a bath bomb daily. I see this as a luxury for a relaxation day. It gets pricey when you use bath bombs regularly and a lot of them leave colour around the edge of the bath leave petals or glitter residue that then has to be washed away. 
For example:I just don’t have time to be doing this daily. I keep to the basics, maybe I’m just super boring.

Once I get out of the bath the one thing that is compulsory moisture! I’m always using the Body Shop products but there’s so many different products you could choose! I love how strong the scents are of these and I can really feel the moisture in my skin.

Feelin’ Green 

Does anybody else see skincare products in green packaging and instantly think of really refreshing things or is it just Me?

I’ve really been trying to help my skin recently and rather than spending my money on make up I’m buying skin care products. I’ve been wearing make up less and often preferring only eye make up. Recently when I’ve been wearing make up I find myself wanting to wash my face in the middle of the day randomly. It all feels really heavy on my skin and I’m just loving this fresh sort of feeling right now.

So in the hope of finding a product that’ll improve my skin and become a new fav of mine I’ve brought more bits to test out.

Now I’ve never tried one of these and we all know I love my Lush face masks. Soo if I’m honest I wasn’t expecting to like this much but I was curious and wanted to try a tissue mask. 
First thoughts, what the hell this is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen. Not only did it give me a fright it was also a nightmare to put on! I honestly found this so difficult to keep on the my face and half of it wasn’t even touching my face where the shape was so off. Now I don’t know if I have a weird shaped face or this mask does. But my mouth nose and eyes were all slightly off and it just wasn’t working for me. 

At first it felt refreshing but after 2 minutes I just waned to take it off and let my face breathe. It was a relief after the 15 minutes was up. I did actually really like the product that was on the mask and found myself squeezing the product out of the mask and then applying it to my face, felt so much more refreshing!

I always always always use the Simple face wipes I think they’re some of the best face wipes. But in the hope to find something more inexpensive I tried the Johnson’s face wipes and I’m actually really liking them. 

They’re only face wipes so there’s not much to say. The quality still isn’t as good as the Simple ones, but they’re still gentle get my make up off and smell great!

I love a face scrub. And my current one I’ve been using for years so I picked up this one to try out. And so far it’s not too bad smells fresh but I’m yet to see results from this. My skin feels soft after use but no real results just yet but I’m going to give it time and keep using it. 
Just wanted to apologise for the lack of posts I’ve been super busy with work, driving lessons and commissions. Hopefully it will all calm down soon and pay off. I’m spending today (my only day off) writing a load of posts so I have something to post even if I am super busy!

Haulin’

Before I start apologies for the lack of posts things have been mega crazy recently. 

First is a Seventeen eyeshadow brush. I brought this like 2 months ago and completely forgot about it in the bottom of my bag. Yet to try it, and I’m not expecting amazing things just saw it and picked it. I believe it was £2.99 from Boots (I could be wrong). I could be pleasantly surprised by it, I’ll keep you guys updated.

Almost a repurchase I keep buying the Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner’s, but I was yet to try this one so I picked it up. It smells gorgeous, can’t wait to use these on my hair.

A monthly purchase I won’t say much about it as I’ve got posts on it already. I. It this monthly I can’t wash my hair without it, really helps.

If you follow my blog you may have seen a post on sample testing and this was one of them. I went out and brought the full size product as I loved it so much. Although the weather hasn’t been amazing I thought I’d prepare for my holiday coming up!

More repurchases I ran out of both of these and these are my go to daily products. Again won’t say much as I’ve posted before. However, I did buy the Infallible Total Cover Foundation in 09 Light Sand rather than 10 Porcelain in the hope it will be lighter and match my skin tone better. I shall let you guys know how I get on with this shade.

This product has changed my skin literally overnight and I’m already in love. This is around £15 which made me a little more reluctant to purchase, but it’s so worth the money! 

A tub of pads to use on your face before you jump into bed. So easy to use and feels like it’s really doing something! Let me know if you want a full post on this! 

Boring! I know. I needed deodorant and picked this one up. Shocked myself as I only ever use Dove deodorants but so far I don’t mind this one at all.

A present from the parents for looking after the house whilst they were on holiday but I wanted to show you guys! I love the quirkiness of Moschino and just look at this! 

Is this not one of the coolest perfume bottles you’ve ever seen?! And to top it off it smells great!

Small Haul

 So many things I wanted to share with you guys the past month but with work and birthday celebrations I found it almost impossible. So why not show you a few things I brought recently? 

Firstly the Head and Shoulders scalp relief shampoo this is a repurchase and featured in my February favourites I love this and had to run out and pick this up as soon as I finished my other bottle! Highly recommended for dandruff or prehaps people who often wear their hair tight. 

I then brought the Garnier ultimate blends shampoo in rice cream and oat meal this smells lush! I brought this because I actually use the conditioner and I like to use another shampoo along side the Head and Shoulders one as it doesn’t smell the best. So I just brought this to go with my conditioner and it was on offer for £2 in boots, bonus! 

I then brought the Eylure accents 005 eyelashes and I brought these because as you can see I also brought the Fleur De Force ones. It was my birthday last weekend and the Fleur De Force ones are my favourite I really the 3/4 ones but I wanted something a little bit more dramatic for my birthday so I picked these ones up and I loved them.

I then picked up the Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr Gel-cream eyeshadow to in 93 Crème de Nude. I had heard amazing things about these so I eventually got round to picking this one and since have picked up a few more and I’m half tempted to do a review on them. I really had no reason for buying this I just fancied trying something different.

I then got the Revolution loose banana powder obviously banana powders been a massive thing over the past year and I had never tried it. So again I got this to try something new, I think I’ve been getting really bored of the products I use and just want to try new bits.

The Rimmel Stay Matte powder was the next thing I got again a repurchase and a pretty boring one everyone and their mum has this. But it is a great affordable powder and I just so happened to run out of mine. 

And lastly some Primark nails because why not? I do have clothes to show but I didn’t want to include them in this I wanted a separate clothes haul. Still thinking about how I’d display items but keep an eye out for that! Primark nails aren’t amazing however if you need nails quickly for an event they’re great and these ones were reduced down to 50p! And although you’ll very rarely see blue appear on here I do love the colour!
