Original Source Daily Scrub, Blood Orange...

Friday, 23 October 2015

I've been using Original Source products for ages now, they're so affordable and they're so amazingly scented, they're also vegan which is a major yes in my books!
Although I love their usual body washes when it gets to this time of the year my skin gets so dry and it needs a good ol' scrub. They're are so many body scrubs I'm majorly obsessed with but some are quite expensive and having to use them every day would just rinse my bank account of money, so when I came across this daily scrub from my favourite high street brand, I had to snap it up.

The Original Source Daily Scrub in Blood Orange is a very subtle scrub so its perfect for the everyday scrub in the shower, the sent is so amazing such a strong orange scent, I love it. It's made with all natural ingredients and the scrub is made with grounded up almonds so it's not good if you have a nut allergy.
This is honestly my favourite scrub for everyday, whats yours?

Autumn Essentials...

Monday, 19 October 2015

Its officially the best time of the year, I love this weather because it just reminds me of the start of Christmas, well in my mind anyway. When it comes to this time of the year my skin usually needs a lot more care than in the summer, my skin goes dry, I break out and my make up always looks a little dull. So these are just a few of my essentials for this chilly autumn time.

As soon as this weather hits its like my tea tastebuds automatically change, I never fancy normal tea or a green tea, I always want a cosy hot chocolate or a cinnamon tea and this tea certainly ticks that box. I'm so happy I could actually find a tea like this because I'm allergic to caffeine so I find it really hard to find a really nice cosy herbal tea that doesn't contain even a tiny bit. The tea is literally Autumn time in a mug I'm obsessed with it, not only that but its zero cals so whats better than that.

If you read my blog you will know that very recently I wrote a post about my favourite Autumn lipsticks so head on over to this post to find out more about why this lippy is in my faves.

I am obsessed with nude nails! I just think they go with everything and they just look so chic, to be honest this isn't really an Autumn essential, it's more like a 24/7 every season kind of essential.
At the moment I've been obsessing over these two colours, the first is Boujour's nail enamel in the colour 'Beige', one of the main reasons I'm loving this at the moment is the brush and staying power. I love that the brush on this nail varnish is so big it fits perfectly to either side of my nails and covers the whole thing in one brush, and I usually find that quite hard as I have acrylic nails so they're very long. Another thing about this colour is the staying power, it's amazing, it doesn't chip at all and as I said before I have acrylics I usually find that the ends of my nails, the colour kind of wears away and I have to top up a lot but this one doesn't do it at all I love it!

My second nail love at the moment is the O.P.I nail liquor in 'You're So Vain-illa', also love the names of these varnishes. I wrote about this nail varnish ages ago on an earlier post of mine, but I'm still obsessed with it. Its such a thick colour that stays on forever, I love.

This season is the perfect time for those dark sparkly eyeshadows. I love wearing eyeshadows on a night out or a nice meal, I don't usually incorporate them into my everyday make up routine, mostly because I just can't be bothered with putting it on just to sit in a lecture all day.
This shadow is just the perfect colour for everything, when I use a lighter colour on my lid its the perfect colour to put in my crease but it's also perfect to wear on its own if I want to go for the darker look. It's so nicely subtly sparkly too which I love, I hate wearing a shadow that looks like I just dunked my head into a bowl of glitter, I like it looking subtle in the light shimmer. Perf.

Last but not least one of my all time forever favourites is this Lush face mask. When it gets to this time of year my face can get so dry and I can get breakouts galore which is the worst. I usually find that using a face mask maybe twice a week really makes my skin wake up and feel alive which is what I really need. I love all of the lush face masks as they're all natural and you can really tell when you use them they're defo my fave ones to use when my skins looking a little on the dull side.

My Top 3 Favourite Bloggers...

Monday, 12 October 2015

One of my favourite pastimes as a blogger is reading other peoples blogs. If you see me on my phone I'll most likely be sitting on Bloglovin, saving post after post obsessively, so I thought what better way to share my love of blogging than to share my love of bloggers with you. I wanted to just share my top 3 faves, because lets face it, we would all be here for hours if I shared them all, they're not in order of numbers just listed, I love them all equally hehe.

1.) That Pommie Girl
I am obsessed with Sarah Ashcroft's blog. Her blog is mainly fashion but she does do a bit of travel and inspo posts which I also love.
Her fashion sense is pretty much my exact style I wish I could dress like, if I had the money and body. I would honestly tell anyone who wants some style inspo about her blog, in fact I actually have told a few people about it. She has one of those blogs I will check everyday just to see what new clothing items she's got that week, I've ended up spending an illegal amount of money because of her blog, thanks Sarah haha. Love it.

2.) Mollie Manning
Mollie is actually the person who originally got me into blogging in the first place. She mainly blogs about beauty, so her blog is always the first one I go to if I need to get a review on a product before I buy it. Her photography is so clean and so perfect, her use of lighting and positioning is just so engaging, I love her blog.

3.) Kate La Vie
Formally known as Gh0stparties, I've been reading her blog since way before I was even a blogger myself. Her interior posts make me so sad that I don't have my own place, all she makes me want to do is go home shopping and fill a flat with coper and everything her style. I love her photography too, so unique and engaging, so beautiful. Her travel posts also make me want to jump onto the nearest plane and jet off for a week or two.

Who are your favourite bloggers at the moment?

Getting That Summer Tan In Autumn...

Friday, 9 October 2015

Does anyone else get so down in the dumps when it comes to Autumn? Now I love it when it gets nice and cozy and you can just curl up in front of the TV with a hot chocolate, but I still want to look like I've been in the Bahamas for 2 weeks.
I was never really a massive fan of fake tan, it was just something about having to exfoliate and apply it all trying not to get orange hands, I just thought it was so much effort, but recently I just feel like I need my tan back! 

The first product I have been obsessing over is this tanning mist. It's so easy to use, I make sure I moisturise my dry bits, like my knees, elbows and ankles, and then I just spray it on my body and then work it into my skin with a tanning mitt. One of the reason I love this tan so much is because it's instant, so you can see the colour straight away so you know if you're a streaky mess or not (which before this, I was).
I usually buy the colour medium because I think it matches my skin perfectly and doesn't make the tan look fake, it looks nice and natural. I only use this fake tan on my body because I think it looks a little bit too harsh on my face, and I sometimes find that if I'm having a bad skin day I think it gathers a bit round my spots so I tend to use something different on my face.

This is the fake tan I always use on my face. I don't really like to use it on my body because I don't think it gives a good enough tan, I like using it as a moisturiser on my body when I already have a tan, but to give me a tan isn't really the best thing. If anyone has ever smelt cocoa butter you'll know that the smell is amazing, it was the whole reason I bought it in the first place but I'm so glad I did.
This is quite a light colour tan so its perfect for that natural glow on the face, it also doesn't gather around spots or dry patches which is perfect for a face tan, I rub this in with a mitt too just for perfect coverage.

Essentials For The Perfect Cozy Night In...

Monday, 5 October 2015

I love to go out clubbing and partying but I sometimes have those days where all I want to do is cosy up in front of the TV all night long, but of course I need my cozy night in essentials.

This is one of my most important essentials to one of these nights. Most of the time when I feel like having one of these nights, it's usually when I feel really run down or it could be that time of the month so when I'm feeling like this my skin is one of the major things that feels crappy.
I have two favourite facemasks at the moment first being Nip+Fab Cleansing Fix this isn't actually really a face mask its more a cleanser but you can also use it as a face mask, don't wanna give too much away as I'm going to write a post about. My other fave at the mo is Lush's Catastrophe Cosmetic mask, this mask is amazing, its so natural and works wonders with my skin, especially when its feeling a bit run down from a heavy week. 

This is the most important thing you need! Getting curled up in front of the TV with a cheesy chick flick under a massive duvet is the best thing. My fave movies for this kinda night are 'The Other Woman', 'Mean Girls' (obviously) and anything else that makes me cringe with happiness will work too. 

Well how else would you have a lazy night? Especially if it's that time of the month. When I was younger my mum would go to the shops and buy loads of random little chocolate bars and cut them all up and it would be like a surprise bowl of goodies, so this is what I always do when I want to just chill and pig out, especially with the Dairy Milk.

This is really my idea of heaven, such a chilled night, perfect.

What do you like to have for a cozy night in?

Jacket: Primark
Shirt: Topshop
