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 :)

 Hello lovely readers I just wanted to write a quick post to share with you what products I've been using up lately, I've tried to continue using up the products that I already own to save money and create more space. I've tried to use up a few more since my last post so here they are...

Giorgio Armani - Diamonds - This smells really clean and fresh, its more of winter scent so I wanted to finish using it before it got 'to warm to wear it'. I've had this bottle for just under two years so its lasted quite a while and has seen me through two long winter seasons. I think it smells really nice and love how it smells in the bottle but I do find it difficult to find perfumes that last all day on my skin. It a really lovely fragrance and always has be singing like in the Beyonce' advert whenever I wear it (should I have said that?) so if your ever in the fragrance isle you may want to see how this smells.

Neutrogena Visably Clear Pink Grapefruit Oil-free Moisturiser - This smells lovely, its sweet bu not too sweet and moisturises my skin all day. I like to wear this under makeup as it seems to make it wear better as it smoothes out the skin for a clear soft base. I would re-purchase this again and am already on the look out for it.
Garnier Mineral InsisiDry Anti-perspirant - Smells clean and fresh and keeps my skin feeling fresh and dry all day. I think it will certainly be good when then weather gets warmer. 

Waitrose Essential - Antibac Hand Gel - Smells clean and is always an item I carry around with me as I like to freshen up on the go so this mini bottle is just the perfect size for traveling and it lasts quite a long time too.

Here are a few items I've only got a few more uses out of then they will be also part of my clear out...

Simple Daily Moisturiser - I like this but I think next time I would try the other version as it isn't the best under makeup.

The MeMeMe Highlighter - I really like this its nice to blend this in on the high points of your face for a healthy glow and also looks really pretty when mixed in with Foundation.

A nini Posie Tint - This is super cute and gives you a really subtle hint of colour, I love using it as a Lip Stain.

Yea to Cucumber wipes - These are really good at cleansing the skin, I'm not to sure about the scent but I would love to try some of the other fragrances in the range and the packaging is just really nice too.

The Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - This bottle has lasted quite a while so you do get a lot but I am looking forward to trying out a new Foundation, I would say the coverage is light to medium but the colour isn't too great, I have the lightest shade which matches ok but is more of a summer shade on me as I have quite light skin. But its good because it comes with a pump so you can apply just the right amount and then just blend it in.

I have also been through some of my Makeup an threw away some old products, I'm trying to use up quite a few products before buying more. Although I am on the look out for a new Foundation/Concealer so I will maybe have to get a new one soon.

What products have you been using up lately?

If you have any requests for future posts, like you would like me to review a product or do some more organisation based post etc, just let me know :)

Best wishes :)

Hello lovely readers I just wanted to share with you a few of the products I have been using up lately as well as a quick little clear out of some old products.

Here are the products I've been using lately, I have included a few close ups of most of the items below too just for a closer look.

1. Clean and Clear Blackhead Eliminating Lotion - I really liked this, I would use it after washing my face at the end of the day and sweep it over my face (avoiding the eye area) to remove excess makeup on my face and to give my face a final clean in order to prevent product build up. I did think this helped keep my skin clear but it can dry your skin out slightly if you used it too often but I think I would re-purchase this again as it worked well and is really affordable.

2. Rimmel 5 in 1 Matte BB Cream - I finally used all of this up! It's only a small tube but last ages as you don't really need to much especially if you use it with a foundation brush. I found this added a light coverage to the skin and added a small amount of colour to my paler complexion. I'm not sure if I would buy this again but I think it's good and works well for the price.

3. Model Co Lip and Cheek Tint - I used most of this up but it has dried out a bit so I am going to throw this out, I did love the colour this gave on the cheeks and Lips but it was a product you really do need to blend quickly, it can also dry out the lips a bit so I wouldn't use it too often.

4. Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer - I loved how this smoothed out my skin but I don't think my makeup lasted any longer, I did like the smell too. It is really affordable though so its a great primer to try if you are just getting into using makeup.

5. Ruby and Millie Angled Eye Brush - This is really quite old and I have used it lots so it has worn out quite a lot so I am going to stop using this as it really doesn't pick up product as good as it used to
but I did really like the Ruby and Millie makeup brushes.

6. Maybeline Mascara - I can't remember the name of this one as I don't have the packaging anymore but it was the one in the yellow packaging. This Mascara create long curled lashes that looked so pretty and flirty, just a really good product for long curled lashes I think.

Empties Blog Post - Part 2

Empties Blog Post - Part 2

Hello lovely readers here's a quick post just to show you what products I've used up recently...

Garnier Mineral Deodorant - This worked really well but I wasn't that keen on the scent so i would maybe buy this in a different fragrance.

Britney Spears Circus Perfume - I kept this in my bag when out and about to freshen up, it smells really nice and was the perfect size to travel with. 

Clean and Clear Moisturiser - This worked really well but I am still on the look out for a new one to try as I go through Moisturiser so quickly as I have really dry skin.

Hugo Boss Perfume (sorry I'm not sure what it is called) I got this as a gift and it's lasted ages! It smells really clean and fresh and is not overly fruity or floral so I think everyone would like it.

My Skin Moisturiser - This smells really good - like Strawberries - but I would only use this as a night time Mosturiser as it did dry up in some places.

The Body Shop Green Tea and Lemon - Room and Body Spray = AMAZING! Love this scent and its so multipurpose so I will buy this again anytime.

Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo - This smells just like Coconut which makes me think of a beach = perfect for summer 

Hope you liked this post :)
