Product Of The Week: Batiste Brit

Hi Ladies,

Its time for a new product of the week! :-) Batiste dry shampoo has been a firm favourite of mine for absolutely yonks so when I spotted this new scent in superdrug the other week, i popped a couple of bottles straight in my basket!

Batiste Brit has a really light, fresh scent which I love. I use this inbetween washes to refresh my hair and add a little extra volume. I like the scent of this one so much it might even replace batiste diva as my favourite dry shampoo!

9/10 and a big thumbs up from me!

Nails Of The Day - Essie Exposure

Hi Ladies

Although we're well on our way into Winter (hello chunky knits and hot chocolate!) lately I've been loving bright vibrant nail colours - who ever said you could only wear them in Summer?! So I thought I'd share with you the polish I always seem to be reaching for at the moment - Essie Exposure.

Exposure is a fabulous true, hot pink with no shimmer. It is one of the best nail polishes I own for application. After two coats it gives great opaque colour and the formula is not at all streaky. It also has a lovely high gloss finish - what more could you want!

Essie definitely get a big thumbs up from me for this one! Which nail colours are you reaching for at the moment?

Hope you're having a fab weekend,

Haircare Favourites :)

Hi Ladies! :)

I am forever on the hunt for my new haircare holy grail, and if I am ever going to be tempted into buying something I don't need it is more often than not to do with my hair! Who can resist a something which claims to make your hair shinier, healthier and thicker?! Not me apparently! Anway enough waffling! Aside from all my frivolous haircare purchases there are some products which are staples in my haircare routine, and I thought I would share them with you :)

1. CHI Silk Infusion - I love this product! I use a teeny tiny amount on the very ends of my hair after towel drying and it leaves my hair feeling soft, smooth and glossy. The best thing about it is that as you use such a small amount at a time it lasts for ages!

2. Mark Hill Heat Protection Spray - I have tried allsorts of different heat protecting sprays/serums/creams and this is the best I have come across. It is really lightweight and doesn't leave your hair feeling heavy with product. It has a light scent which isn't overpowering and it works really well on damp and dry hair - excellent!

3. Sheer Blonde Healthy Attitude Leave-in Nourishing Spray - This another great lightweight product which has the added bonus of a heat shield. I spray this generously all over my hair before I dry it and I find it leaves my hair feeling healthy and soft.

4. Loreal Elnett Hairspray - This is the limited edition Cheryl Cole version (Cheryl Cole + a pretty bottle - who can resist?!). For me, Elnett is the best hairspray on the market, it has incredible hold, doesn't leave my hair feeling dry or crispy and brushes out easily at the end of the night.

5. Sheer Blonde Gleam Creme - Another favourite sheer blonde product, I always have atleast two of these on the go at once - one in my room and one in my handbag! If the ends of my hair are ever feeling dry, I smooth a pea sized amount of this through and they instantly feel soft and nourished.

6. Insette Volumising Hair Mousse - This is a total bargain at less than a pound! I often use it to add a little bit of volume to my roots or to help my curls stay put and unlike some hair mousses it doesn't leave my hair feeling sticky or greasy.

and thats everything! Let me know what some of your favourite haircare products are :)

Bargain Of The Week: Stila 4 Pan Palette :)

Hi Ladies :-)

If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know that Stila is probably my favourite makeup brand. Their illuminating liquid foundation has been my holy grail product for years and their eyeshadows are some of the best I've ever used. I have a few Stila eyeshadow palettes then a few eyeshadows in pan form which I've ummh-ed and ahh-ed over buying a palette for for ages. So I'm sure you can imagine my delight when I spotted this total bargain in Tk Maxx the other day!

A four pan palette for £2.99! I was so chuffed I practically skipped to the till! It is the perfect size, and has a huge mirror inside, great for taking away for weekends or just popping in your handbag. My three pan form eyeshadows now have a lovely new home!

There were some other Stila bits and bobs and also a few NYX palettes and Calvin Klein products too so it's definitely worth a look if you're passing TK Maxx anytime soon. I just need one more eyeshadow to complete the family now, does anyone have any suggestions?

Hope you're having a great week!
