Quick De-clutter/Empties Post - Part 1 - Summer 2015

QUICK DE-CLUTTER POST - PART 1 - SUMMER 2015


Hello lovely readers :) I just wanted to do a quick post to share with you what I've been using up over the past few months, I'm really trying to use up what I already own to save space and money but also to create a more minimalist environment, I have quite a few things I've either used up or decided to throw away as they are quite old or not longer work for me so I just wanted to share them with you all. I'm trying to own less and use more of what I have and be more creative that way I can create different looks without spending too much and without having too many products open at one time but for this post I wanted to share with you what I've used up most recently.


In this picture - MeMeMe Highlighter, Collection Concealer, Primark Eyeliner and a Model Co Lip Liner.

In this picture I have used up most of the Rimmel London Pink Nude Lipsitck and the Carmex Mint Lip Balm.

I also decided to throw away some of my old Makeup brushes which I've had for years as they no longer work for me and there's also a Nail File which never really worked so I decided not to keep it.

In this picture - Waitrose Pure Face Wash, Vaseline Moisturising Hand Cream, Two small Body Lotions from Sanctuary, a mini Benefit Posie Tint and a Mini Lip Balm I got in the Holiday sales last year.

I'm trying to use up what I have and become more minimalist, I like the idea of using what i have before buying more as I don't have a lot of space but love trying out new product so I can to this with the items I already own. I do love a good haul though but I will do them less often but I am always happy to review something new on my blog :)

Best wishes :)

THE NEW SCENT OF SUMMER 2015

THE NEW SCENT OF SUMMER 2015

Hello lovely readers hope your having a lovely Spring/Summer and with this in mind I though I would share with you a perfume I will most probably be using most days over this summer - its a relatively new release and was given to me as a gift for my Birthday a few months ago but I've be saving it for summer as its the perfect scent for this season.



MARC JACOBS - DAISY SORBET - I'm not that great at describing scents but this smells really fresh and sweet, its perfect for summer and the bottle is jut so lovely. It limited edition so its worth having a smell if you are looking for a new summer fragrance or just want to see what it smells like. This is my first Marc Jacobs fragrance but I would like to try more so maybe I will try one for another season.

The packaging is so cute just like all of the other Marc Jacobs Packaging - The tops of the bottle is decorated with three Daisies which are all in different colours - Purple, Pink and light Pink and the perfume itself is pink too!
I love the pretty design of the packaging the simplicity of curved glass bottle and the bright colour of each Daisy really make this bottle stand out as a decorative piece which I love - I will be using this as an accessory to decorate my room this summer - maybe keeping it on my desk or shelf so its not in direct sunlight.


What's your summer fragrance?

Best wishes :)

Mini Natural Collection Haul

MINI NATURAL COLLECTION HAUL

  Hello lovely readers for today's post I just wanted to share with you a few of the items I picked up the last time I went to Boots, these items are all from the Natural Collection brand so they are really affordable but good quality, I especially like their Eye Shadows. So here's what I got...


The Natural Collection Pressed Powder in NEUTRAL this is a re-purchase for me, I was looking for a new face powder as mine Soap and Glory one hit pan and cracked to I had to throw it away as it was just getting everywhere. But I remember buying this powder in the past and it worked well for em and its a bargain at £1.99 so it was worth trying again.




The second item is the Natural Collection Eye Liner in OLIVE GREEN - I love this colour its so pretty, I think its a nice change and I love a good pop of colour on the eyes. If they did more colours like this I would buy them all!


I love the Natural Collection Eye Shadows - This is the Shade WILLOW as you can tell I have started using this, I've swatched it a few times and think its a great colour for all over the lid as it brightens your eyes and makes you look more awake. This is pale cream colour with little bits of added shimmer which is great for a night out.

This second Eye Shadow is also a re-purchase I had this a few years ago but lost it so thought it would be great to try it again as these were all on offer so I though I would try a few things. This Eye Shadow is in the shade ASTEROID its a dark brown colour with subtle shimmer in it which really works at catching the light, it works great as as a crease colour  - I love the name of it too!


Have you tried any of these products?


Best wishes :)

7 WAYS TO ORGANISE ON A BUDGET

7 Ways to Organise on a Budget
Here are some of quick ideas I have for getting organised on a budget…
Tbere are lots of ideas and a few pictures too!





1.   Ikea Drawer Dividers – Can be used to divide up drawers and separate items such as socks, underwear and accessories.






2.   Ikea Click boxes – Can be used to store small items such as individual Eyeshadows, Blushers, Travel Sized products and Nail Polishes.
I use this one for Skincare...





3.   Decorative Jars – Can be used to hold Brushes, Lip Balms, Nail Polishes and single Eyeshadows.

4.   Glossyboxes – Can also be used to divide up drawers and hold items such as Skincare and Bodycare.






5.   Ikea Plant Pots – Can be used to hold Brushes, Eyeliners/Mascaras, Lip Balms and Skincare.








6.   Acrylic Divider – These can be used to hold a variety of different items, from Nail Polishes, to Lipsticks, Perfumes and Jewellery.






7.   Decorative Boxes – These are great for organising lots if beauty products or for hiding some and keeping everything in your room look that little bit more organised.


Summer Drugstore Blushers – Some of my Favourites

Summer Drugstore Blushers – Some of  my Favourites

Here are some of my favourite Drugstore Blushers – These are all really great for summers day or just adding a little glow to your skin throughout the year.


If you want a natural pink look – Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks in PINK CLOUD. This adds a subtle hint of colour to the cheeks and is buildable so you can use a little and then add more if you feel you want to. It’s a powdery formula which I prefer over cream as I feel that it won’t melt on a warm day. It’s also fragrance-free which is great. Price £1.99





If you want a golden summer glow – Rimmel London Lasing Finish Soft Colour Blush in SANTA ROSE. This colour is gorgeous and would look great on tanned skin but it is great at adding a healthy glow to paler skin tones. I really like how compact this Blusher is and like to use this during the summer as it really warms up the complexion. Around £3.99




The final product is just a bit over £10 but it is a dual purpose one so it saves you having to buy two separate products…

For those who like Coral shades and want a dual purpose product – Bella’pierre Lip and Cheek stain in CORAL. This is really cute and compact and also has a subtle sweet scent. The packaging is really small which makes it great for travelling and the festival season. I really like this shade to as I think Coral shades work well with my fair skin but this would look great with all skin tones. This dual purpose product can be used both on the cheeks and the Lips and adds a subtle sheen. It’s also a time saver as it means you won’t have to try and find a Lipstick to match your Blusher or a Blusher to match your Lipstick.  Price around £12.99




What are some of your favourite Drugstore Blushers?

Best wishes :)

My Most Used Products - April 2015

My Most Used Products - April 2015

Hello lovely readers here's a quick post just to share with you what products I've been using the most throughout April. These products are mostly Skincare but I feel like that is because the weather is changing more in the UK so my Skincare routine is having to adapt slightly. So without to many more ramblings I am going to share with you what I've been using over the past month...




The MUA Undressed Palette - This is really well loved I try to used it as often as I can, I am trying to use this up, its part of my 2015 Project Pan and is just my 'everyday' go to Makeup collection.


I've been using this Simple Kind to Skin Moisturiser as my everyday day cream, it works well at hydrating but doesn't sit that well under makeup for me but I have noticed that my skin is becoming more oily lately which I think is due to the changes in weather. I have also included a 'mini review' on this in my previous blog post.


I have been using this pretty much every night for the past month its the Waitrose Pure Facial Oil, I really do like this it hydrates the skin and wasn't that expensive so I thought I'd try it out. I think this is my favourite product for the range, I tried a few more things that were part of the same range but they didn't work well for me as my skin is really sensitive.

 Can you tell that I like to try products from Simple? This is the Kind to Skin Deep Cleansing Face Mask, I used this about twice a week as it is gentle on the skin and help me keep my skin feeling soft and clear. I do like this so I will continue to used this as my weekly Face Mask.

Finally I have been using this Ted Baker Body Souffle' most nights to moisturise my skin, its works really well as softening the skin and has a nice floral scent. I have about one of two uses left so this is nearly empty so then I will probably more on to using up another body moisturiser.


What products have you been up lately?

Best wishes :)
