Roger & Gallet Well-Being Fragrant Waters

Roger & Gallet Well-Being Fragrant Waters

If you fancy treating yourself to a fragrance this Summer, Roger & Gallet has a great variety at such an affordable price point. And when I say there’s a variety, I mean there’s a choice of scents to choose as well as the level of concentration and intensity, from including the usual eau de perfum and eau de toilette, as well as eau fraiche fragrance, eau fraiche spray, and eau douce.

10 Beauty Essentials To Try This Summer

You’d think that by now, after living in England all my life, I’d be used to the disappointment of the British Summer. But nope! Every year, I’m hopeful! And EVERY YEAR, we’re disappointed! I suppose this is just the beginning so I am remaining wishful, and it's starting to feel humid which is a start!

10 Summer Beauty Essentials

I was still wearing my Winter red tartan scarf up until last week but once I can properly emerge from my cosy fluffy clothes, I’ll be putting more effort in to getting my skin looking decent for this so-called Summer! Y’know, so I don’t look like an absolute lizard in my Summer time outfits!

Homeware Haul | 9 items For Under £30

I couldn’t wait to have a good Spring clean and that’s exactly what I did over the Bank Holidays in May (fave time of year what with all those Bank Hols popping up!) but that left the rooms in my apartment looking a bit bare. To make it a bit homely, I have picked up a few homeware pieces from various shops.

Recently, I was given a £30* budget from Dotcomgfitshop to shop in their Summer Sale. I know exactly what I’m looking for on there as I’m no stranger to their website as it’s my go-to every Christmas, it’s absolutely BRILLIANT for secret santa gifts and stocking fillers. But this time, I was shopping for my home. Just a few little pieces - things that would look cute and Summery! 

As I am an expert (albeit self-acclaimed) for getting the very best out of a budget is set, I manage to get 9 homeware items for under £30 (£29.75 to be precise!) in the Dotcomgiftshop Summer sale and saved myself the total of £61.80! You can see the breakdown of the normal prices vs sales price on the post I wrote on their blog. You're going to be totally amazed by the savings!

Here’s a brief snapchat of what homeware items I picked from their Summer sale: 

barcelona design stoneware teapot
Teapot (£6.95) and Milk Jug (£3.95)

barber shop moustache cake toppers

cute cake toppers

birdcage lantern tealight holder

home sweet home mug

salad bowl
Salad Bowl (£4.95)

tealight holders
Set of 6 Tealight Holders (£4.95 for all six)

pink carnations
(or use the tealight holders as a mini vase for small flowers)

Wire Heart (50p)

June 2016 Birchbox

I was excited to receive this month’s Birchbox* as I had seen a preview of it on Twitter. For the June 2016 edition, Birchbox has designed two boxes with the cutest, Summer-y prints on it. One, as you can see in my photos, is a palm tree on a light blue background. And the other is a pineapple print on a bubblegum pink background.

I was hoping that I’d receive the pineapple one since I loooove anything with pineapples on them! But actually, it was nice to be surprised with something different! I really like the palm trees, it looks really cute but honestly, the outer packaging doesn’t matter as long as the contents of the box is impressive (and it is, btw!)

First Impressions Of New Make-Up From L'Oreal Paris

A few make-up pieces from the L’Oreal Paris The Hippie Statement range has dropped and I’m not waiting for the sunshine anymore before trying these out (otherwise we’d be waiting an eternity. BLOODY BRITISH SUMMER!).

New From L'Oreal Paris: The Hippie Statement

This bundle of make-up are meant to give you an easy, effortless way to looking great at the festivals this Summer. I've got a feeling it's more inspired by Coachella than it is Glasto! Obviously, we’re not talking a full face of make-up here (because festivals) but just a few bits and pieces that you can fling in to your backpack to help you do your eyelashes and brows in no time at all!

Pinita Colada Collection from The Body Shop

I love it when bath and body products smell so good! Even more so when it reminds you of your favourite holiday cocktail! Following on from last year’s brilliant Virgin Mojito range, The Body Shop have released the Pinita Colada collection.
