May Favourites 2015


Another (ANOTHER!) month has passed which means it is time to round up all my favourite beauty products and tell you all about them. I don't actually have that much this month but I suspect I shall make up for it next month as I did a lot of shopping toward the end of the month so I've got a lot of new goodies to try out.

The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Range

The Body Shop Virgin Mojito, Virgin Mojito, The Body Shop

Get ready for Summer with The Body Shop's brand new body care range; Virgin Mojito!

This new limited edition body care range has blown me away. It is by far my favourite body care release from The Body Shop.

Virgin Mojito has the fresh, zesty scent of lime (top note), mint (heart note) and coconut water (base note), making it the perfect Summer scent.

Huge Collective Haul (Boots, Escentual.com, MAC, Caudalie +More)


Yes, another haul. I am sorry to say (totally not sorry) that I did quite a lot of shopping over the last month and have gathered, like a little squirrel, a whole load of beauty bits to show you. Please note that this is a collective haul and I did not go out and buy all this in one go (although, lets face it, I totally could have) This is a collection of online orders, random bits and a result of a weekend away. Enjoy!

Bedside Beauty

The Body Shop Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, NUXE reve de miel lip balm, Origins make a difference hand cream

I have a few products that I keep in my bedside table, that I reach for every night before bed.
The first product I use to get ready for bed is The Body Shop Deep Sleep Pillow Mist (£10). I spray this all over my bedsheets before hopping into bed. It has a lovely calming smell that I find really comforting and relaxing. It contains camomile and jujube extracts which help to relax the body and mind. The smell continues to release throughout the night as you move, so you stay in a restful sleep. Clever!

If I Made My Own Beauty Box

Beauty Box

We all love beauty boxes and are all secretly waiting for the perfect beauty box to surface, filled with goodies that make us squeal with excitement. I think it is safe to say that Caroline Hirons pretty much did that with her amazing Cult Beauty box. Inspired by that, I thought it would be fun to do a post on what I would include in my very own beauty box!

My Favourite Perfumes


I am not a massive perfume person. In fact, it is probably the only beauty area that I have a select few to pick from. But the perfumes I do own I love. Today I thought I'd share my favourite perfumes with you.

Travel Beauty Essentials



As you are reading this, I will be sat on a train either eating/sleeping/day dreaming about shopping, on my way to Aberdeen for a weekend away with my Sissy and Mum. Travelling when you're a beauty addict is hard! I always struggle to narrow it down to what products I should take, especially with skincare as I usually want something quite quick and easy. I thought it would be interesting to show you what I ended up taking away with me in terms of skincare and makeup! Here we go..

New Skincare Update: What Worked and What Didn't

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil, Caudalie Glycolic Peel Mask, Clinique Extended Thirst Relief moisturiser, La Roche Posay


About a month ago I posted about some new skincare bits that I had introduced into my routine (Out With The Old In With The New: Skincare) I feel like I have used the products enough to be able to report back with an update on how I have been getting on with them.

The Best Tool For A Flawless Base | Real Techniques Sponge

Real Techniques, Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

For the longest time I was a buffing brush kind of girl for applying my foundation. I found nothing more satisfying that sitting and buffing in my foundation for as long as I liked, until it was practically buffed away completely. Ooops.

Now I am not sure if it was watching girls on YouTube or possibly seeing photos on Instagram all the time that planted the seed of "You should use a makeup sponge" into my head but I found myself thinking just that everyday in the middle of my 10 minute buffing session.

Trying Colour... (Topshop Nail Colour in Tidal)

I decided to step out of my "every shade of baby pink nail polish under the sun" comfort zone. Since Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup posted about the Topshop nail colour in Blue Rinse, I have had the idea of blue nails playing on my mind. I went into my local Topshop and ended up walking out with Tidal (£5)

My Favourite Tanya Burr Lipglosses


Tanya Burr Cosmetics, Tanya Burr Lipglosses, Tanya Burr lip gloss swatches, Tanya Burr lip gloss review

Tanya Burr Cosmetic lip glosses are easily my favourite lip product. Low maintenance, long lasting, moisturising and all with a pretty pop of colour. What's not to like? I have managed to gather quite a few in my collection since they launched (10 to be exact) but I definitely have my favourites that I reach for all the time.

Another month has passed, which means time for a Monthly favourites! I will start with makeup, as I seem to be having a bit of a "makeup moment" this month.
