September Wishlist

September Wishlist

Here in the UK, the temperature has dropped quite a lot over the last two weeks. This means summer is officially over and it’s now Autumn here (even if the leaves haven’t started falling from the tress yet!). It’s been cold enough for me to start wearing one of my favourite combinations – the baggy tee, tight leggings and oversized cardi! It’s a look that is 100% about comfort, but is also nice and warm too. The change in temp has had a big influence on my wishlist, so here’s what I’m after:

August Favourites

So as you’re reading this, it is not August anymore, but hey I’m only a day late and I am close to being back up to date with the blog, thanks to a morning spent writing, scheduling and drafting. As I’m writing this it’s still August so let’s just pretend for a minute shall we?

There’s been a few products I have been reaching for repeatedly this month I want to share with you. Some of them you will have seen on the blog before, but they really are great products!

NOTD Ft. Essie and Sally Hansen

I’ve mentioned a few times on here before that I am terrible for chipping, smudging or otherwise ruining my nails within 24 hours of painting them. In fact, I’ve gone so far as to say I find it impossible to make a manicure last that long. Those days are now behind me! Thanks to these great tips from Anomalous Me Beauty, whose blog is really worth following if you’re not already!

I picked out my high end products to give this a go, as I know from many many reviews that they’re meant to be a lot better lasting than I’ve ever managed.

August Glossybox Review

I feel like this post is long over due, but with starting a new job and being ill for most of the month it has managed to escape being written. Sorry about that, but here is my more in depth review of my August Glossybox. Better late than never!

Beauty Haul! Ft. Fragrance Direct, The Body Shop & Boots

Yesterday was my first pay day in almost a year and a half! I might only be working part time, but seeing some money actually going into my bank account was incredibly exciting (and a rarity since finishing uni) so I decided to go do some shopping. I’ve split this into sections so you can see what I got from each shop.

Fragrance Direct

Fragrance Direct is an online shop, which sells a wide range of beauty products at discounted rates. Over the weekend, they had a free shipping offer which I took advantage of. Standard shipping is meant to take 5-7 working days and I got mine in 4. Very impressed! And everything was well packaged too, so it’s definitely worth checking them out. Here’s what I got:

What are your French beauty heroes?

Today my parents booked ferries to go visit my grandparents in France and my mum has offered to do some shopping for me whilst she’s there. Instantly my mind started racing, trying to think of French make up and skin care brands!

Of course, Bioderma, Clarins and the like have all crossed my mind and the thought of getting up to 25% reduced prices on some products is incredibly exciting and I kind of don’t know where to start!

So I want to know, what are YOUR French beauty heroes and make up must haves? Let me know in the comments and I’ll take look into them whilst I create my list. I know I’ve got a while before they go but man I’m excited at the prospect!

E.L.F. Haul Review – Part 1

Earlier this month, I went on a shopping spree on the E.L.F. website, taking advantage of the 50% off and free shipping. I got a total of 12 products for just over £20, which is such a bargain. I’ve now tried everything out thoroughly and so its time to review them. As there’s quite a lot, I’ve decided to split this into two posts so its easier to digest.

This part will focus on face products – the foundation, face powder, brushes and blusher that I bought – and the second will talk about everything else – the eye products, lip products and nail varnish. All the prices on the post are the RRP as shown on the E.L.F. website.

The Drugstore Favourites Tag!

Drugstore Favourites

So guys, I’ve been tagged by Glam Jar to do a drugstore favourites post. I personally love to shop at places like Boots, because of the variety of things on offer with a range of brands which go from cheap and cheerful to high end in the price range. Although I tend to steer clear of actually buying things in the high end price bracket because I find it hard to justify spending so much money on one item. In fact, out of all the make up I currently own, only two items would be classed as premium products…

This month is Glossybox’s third birthday! To celebrate, they offered six items to everyone, promising a minimum box value of £33.

My box came yesterday, much quicker than expected having been dispatched on Friday, but as I had already written a post I decided to have this one go up today instead.
