Update Time! :)

Hi Ladies!

I'm back from my holiday in the sunshine (I didn't want to come home!), I had a fantastic time the weather was amazing and it was really nice to relax on the beach. I went to Turkey, where me and my boyfriend have been going for the past three years, I love it!

I'm hopefully going to upload some holiday snaps and outfits once my boyfriend lets me have his camera which has all the pictures on! I took much less clothes wise than I do normally, and only two pairs of shoes! My trusty haviana's and the sparkly river island flats which I blogged about here and got lots of compliments on which was lovely.

Since coming back I had a day to rest, and then was back to work and now I'm getting things ready for going back to uni at the beginning of next week. I can't believe how fast the summer has gone! I also seem to have started with a cold today and have been enjoying lots of cups of tetleys earl grey with vanilla tea (absolutely lovely try it if you can find it in the supermarket, only morissions seem to stock it near me!) and my favourite gluten free biscuits which are byron bays triple chocolate fudge cookies, they are seriously yummy and by far the best gluten free biscuits I have come across yet!

I hope you've had a fabulous summer, and if you havn't been on your holiday yet (lucky you!) have an amazing time. Look out for lots more posts coming soon!

Holiday Reads, Your recommendations needed :)

Hi Ladies,

I am going on holiday this weekend (yippee!) and I have a few bits and bobs which I still need to pick up the main thing being - My holiday books! I absolutely love to read, I always have a book by my bed and one in my ridiculously big handbag for buses, trains and whenever takes my fancy! When I go on holiday I usually take 3 books, and then hope the hotel has a little library/bookshelf as I usually get through these, read my boyfriends book and need more!

On holiday I usually like to take fun, girlie easy to read books like the shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella, but any recommendations would be gratefully recieved :)

Speaking of Sophie Kinsella, In the past few days I read the undomestic goddess (for about for 3rd time - I love re reading books too!) and I loved it as much as the first time I read it, its such a fun book and I can highly recommend it if you're looking for a summer read :)

So if you've read a fantastic book this summer please let me know!

I have also just updated the product of the week, to Loreal's gentle eye make-up remover. Although this is not the best eye make up remover I have ever used, for getting rid every last bit of eye makeup it is lovley and gentle and does the job for me. I have very sensitive eyes so was really pleased to read that its non irritant formula is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. It is refreshing, not at all greasy and best of all a bargain! I picked mine up for £2.75 from boots.

Speak soon :)

July Favourites! (a little late)

Hi Ladies,

Sorry this is a little late, I've been mega busy this week, and I never seem to get round to doing my monthy favourites even though they're one of my favourite posts to read! I have found quite a few new products I really like the past month or so, so here are my super July faves :)

It was actually started raining while I was taking these photo's (can you tell!) once I got inside it progressed into a full blown storm, I can't believe its the middle of summer! anyway onto the favourites!

I always have one of these little Carex hand gels in my handbag. The grapefruit and lime refreshing aroma gel is my favourite, people have actually asked me what perfume I'm wearing after I've used it!

The two nail polishes I have been reaching for the most this summer have been BarryM's Pink Flamingo which is quite possibly my all time favourite BarryM nail paint and Rimmels 10 day nail colour in Cafe Au Lait. Cafe au lait is a really great nude nail varnish, it is perfect for work and I find it lasts really well. I always like the way my nails look when I wear this colour.

Batiste dry shampoo in blonde is by far my top dry shampoo, it blends really well with my hair colour and I love the scent.

I've been really impressed with the Schwarzkopt got2b guardian angel heat protection spray which I bought earlier this month. Unlike some heat protectants it doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy or sticky. Its very light, smells lovely and leaves my hair feeling smooth and sleek. I love the packaging too!

The Me Me Me Blush Me blush in coral has definitely been my most reached for blush this July. Its a really pretty wearable coral with a fine shimmering finish which gives a lovely glow. This has satisfied my lust for Benefit's Coralista (for now!).

And finally MAC's Pink Plaid lipstick, has not left my handbag since I bought it. It is a matt finish which I don't normally go for, but for me it is a fab wearable pink with great staying power.

and thats everything :) let my know what your favourite have been the past month, and have a fabulous August!

A few purchases from superdrug :)

Hi Ladies,

I picked up a couple of things from superdrug I thought I would show you, I went in for a bottle of water but as ever managed to pick up a few ''essentials'' while I was there - doh!

I absolutely love batiste (for the record the blonde and diva versions are my faves!) so I had to try their new XXL volume dry shampoo. I have only used this once so far and I have to say I didn't like it as much as the other versions of batiste I have used, it left my hair feeling quite stiff and heavy. Nevertheless I am not giving up on this just yet, and will let you know how I get on with it :)

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I love the sheer blonde gleam creme, I have used this product since I was about 15 and I always have a tube of it in my handbag and another on my dressing table. I distribute a pea sized amount through the ends of my hair if they are feeling dry and a little throughout my hair to tame any flyaway's. This is one of my all time favourite products.

Any finally...very exciting face wipes! The garnier fresh essentials are my favourites, and I love the other products from the fresh range too - especially the moisturiser which is a bargain!

and thats everything, have a great week and speak soon!
