Hey everyone, in todays blog I am going to show you small bits that I have brought this week.

Since everyone was talking about how the Naked palettes where so similar to the ‘Makeup Revolution’ palettes, I just had to buy them! I’ve been wanting to get one for a very long time, but just didn’t have the time too. So I finally got my head around in getting this. I brought the ‘Iconic 3’ palette for just £4.00 which is amazing! The quality and pigmentation is really good, never did I think a cheap eyeshadow palette will actually please me! well done Revolution! However, the only down do is that it doesn’t have a mirror, but that doesn’t bother me. Apart from that…amazing!

I then brought the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation for £6.99 in the shade ‘201 Classic Beige’, again I have been wanting to buy this foundation for the longest time. This foundation has become one of my favourite ones. The dueyness and texture is perfect for me! It is so easy to blend and does keep my skin looking fresh for a sustainable amount of time.

I then picked up a felt tip liner from Collection 2000 for £2.99 and a lipliner from Gosh called ‘Antique Rose 002’ I am in love with this colour! It is a browny peachy colour which is perfect for the winter season! It is matte, waterproof and lasts a looong time!

Plane Journey / Summer Essentials 2014

Uncategorized

 

DSC00094

Hellooo everyone, thanks to summer I am finally on a holidaaaay, so this is a perfect time to blog about plane journey / summer essentials. These are the most important basic items I carry with me when I am travelling on long journeys.  I must admit, I hate plane journeys, it makes me feel all icky and uncomfortable. However with some of these, it may make you feel a tiny bit better – it did for meee.

First of all, I like to carry my things in this bag which is from Primark. This ‘makeup bag’ was less than £5 and the quality of this bag is actually quite good. It has a kind of waterproof material that makes it easy for you to wipe and it also prevents any liquids from entering.

Facial wipes is a must! It can be used for multiple things, which most of you already know. Wiping your makeup off, hands anywhere. It leaves your face feeling fresh and natural. The wipes that I used on the plane, is called  ‘deep facial cleansing wipes’ from Primark. It comes in a pack of 2, for £1 which is amazinggg.

I don’t know about you, but I NEEEED lip balms. Lips tend to go a bit dry, especially on long journeys so it is essential to keep some with you. Most of them are pocket size, so it shouldn’t be a problem at all. It protects my lips while leaving it  feeling smooth and moisturised. You just need to find the right lip balm that does the job, I will recommend Carmex. (Comment below if you would like to see my favourite lip balms)

Hand Sanitisers and Hand creams are so useful. Hand creams will leave your skin feeling fresh and clean.Whereas sanitisers, gets rid of all the dirt from your hands. That is what you want while travelling for hours, right?

Makeup is optional. If you want to wear makeup,  I recommend you wear light makeup, makeup that doesn’t feel as if is weighing your face down.

Lastlyyyyyyy, my favourite, exciting essential….eye mask! Now this makes me feel more relaxed, confident and warm. Planes do get cold, so this is a good way to keep your eyes feeling warm.

PS: I know that there is much more essentials that I haven’t spoke about, these are the basic items that I think that is important

Thank you for readingg,

what are your essentials?

I highly recommend this cuticle cream to everyone!  It works from the first use. As I have really weak, brittle nails this product has helped my nails to look healthy and feel new.

This cuticle cream is from Lush and it is called Lemony Flutter. I purchased it for £6.50.
This is a thick cream that moisturises your cuticles whilst making them look alive!
However you could use this anywhere. On your knees, feet, anywhereee.
My favourite thing about this cream is the smell. The smell is amazinnnng. The name gives the name away lol, lemmmoooooon.

Looking at the ingredients, you can see that this butter is packed with all sorts of great natural oils and butters. It also doesn’t contain any sorts of harsh chemicals that can harm your nails.

Only use a little amount of this product as a little goes a long way.
I apply this on my nails, before I go sleeep. Once it’s on your nails, you won’t resist the smeeeeeell

I apply this to all my cuticles,  rubbing in circle motions. The cream absorbs to your skin quickly so you don’t need to worry about it transferring to your clothes..

…leaving your nails smeell delish and feel soft as everrrr.
