Boots haul 😍

I love a little chemist /drugstore splurge. Didn’t buy too much this time.

So here’s what fell into the basket 😂


I wanted a mascara that’s not too dramatic like my milani one but enough to look like I’ve made an effort and this is what I chose soap and glory thick and fast


I am nearly at the end of my Mac fluidline gel liner and I wanted to see if I could save the pennies and find something that does the same job so this Carter Beauty gel liner is on trial to see if he’s got the position.


We all love a concealer that covers a multitude of sons and this one is one I always go back to after trying others. It’s collection lasting perfection and it is just what it says in its name… Perfection


This wasn’t the shade I was expecting as online it looked lighter but this Collection lipstick is an absolute beaut of a colour for the autumn winter months. I can be a bit daring.


For years I have used olay in one way or another and this is something that I am just renewing that I think helps my dry skin. Daily facials and double action day cream. I recommend it if your combo like me.


Then if you spent over £20 you got this gift for free. I have 3 of the lipsticks to give away to whoever wants them as they are brown and not my colour. But the other goodies will come in handy.

There you have it my little boots haul.

What’s your favourite thing to get in boots?

Monthly favourites August

Summer is nearly over… I am actually secretly glad as I am a lover of wrapping up and all things autumn.

August has been a scorcher again and I’ve got a little tan which is a first for me

As you know my favourites posts I really look forward to writing and seeing what bought me joy that month.

Here is what I’ve been loving

CONFU FOLDING HAIRDRYER

My other hairdryer had lasted a good 4 years which is a record as I kept breaking them at one point.

I didn’t want a super powerful one as my hair is short so I saw this nifty fold up one for £25 and thought it was perfect for when you go away, and it’s rose gold too.

IPAD PENCIL (APPLE DUPE )

5CAF8B49-F48C-448D-AE61-35B2A587113B

So I downloaded a few sketch apps and then thought I can’t do it with my fingers 🙈 silly me and a plain stylus just wasn’t cutting it. So this Apple Pencil dupe for £27 works on my iPad and also my Huawei and I believe it works on a Samsung phone too and probably an iPhone. I really do love it and I believe the actual apple pencil is £129 or there abouts. So a bargain indeed.

MILANI BIGGER LASHES MASCARA

C52C394A-0D97-4399-A8C3-259CF5D8C461

I have been using this mascara over a few months and I have to say for £10 it’s a lot better than the likes of benefit and L’Oréal. It gives me the full lashes I want without using falsies.

WATERMELON ICE LOLLIES

1FB878F4-C864-49CA-813F-508BF80C6876

I’m a sucker for a lolly. No pun intended 🙈

so when we came to do our big shop last week i saw these were on offer £1 for 4 so you can probably guess they didn’t last long.

if you like watermelon and like an ice lolly like me go pick up some of these.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

2F3FE08C-0200-4E45-A68E-B8EA284A3E52

I guess we are all one of a kind…it’s a funny but true quote.

Lastly I thought I’d include a song that I’ve loved singing along to

I mean anything that Ed sings is amazing in my eyes…. Blow is by Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars.

FEATURE FRIDAY WEEK 2

Here is Em introducing herself and her blog

Hi, I’m Em. After not reading much for the past few years I decided to set myself a challenge for 2019. This challenge was to read 25 books in the year. So far at the time of writing this, we are 8 months in I am on 79 books. My blog is a place where I review and talk everything books. I’m fairly new to it (couple of months) but I’m really enjoying it and am starting to trail new ideas.

A few facts about me:
– I own (currently) over 640 books
– I have not read Harry Potter yet, hopefully this will change soon (please don’t hate me)
– I mainly only buy second hand books

Nexts Friday I’ll have more blog featured so keep an eye out.

Girly Nail look

I paint my nails myself, I’ve never been and had any sort of extensions or gels. My nails are natural and I’m proud of them… Not so when they break right in the quick but let’s hope they don’t do that for a while or else they’ll all have the chop 🙈

So here’s this week’s look

Taken out in my garden as there was sunlight and needed to take advantage of it.

These are the nail varnishes used and I love the 60 second ones from Rimmel.

The technic one is very old but still adds a little something to a plain colour.

I reckon the price was about £9 for all 3 so that’s alot cheaper than going to the salon.

Beautiful them beautiful me

I just wanted to do a quick post today.

I could look at these two pics I have of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe and compare the shit out of how beautiful they are and how so many people including myself think they are the ultimate beauty icon, Which they are.

But instead I look at this pic and see the beauty in myself, maybe not perfect but I appreciate all that I am even when my skin is not flawless like theirs I can still be as beautiful as I want to feel.

Skincare for spot prone skin

When I did beauty therapy at college 12 years ago I always thought that the products we were using Dermalogica would never be in my price range.

Well it’s great when you spot a bargain, and that I did.

This Breakout clearing kit was £26. I am a sufferer of spots any time of the month so I’d be silly not to try it. The kit includes

  • a breakout clearing foaming wash
  • A breakout clearing booster
  • A skin soothing hydrating lotion.

The headband was a freebie.

This clear start blotting paper keyring is just perfect for on the go oily moments. He was also a freebie ( I’ll get to why at the end)

For when my skin in semi OK I thought this special cleansing gel would be one to alternate from the one in the kit. It was £11.50.

This daily microfoliant is meant to make your skin look radiant. I believe it will just not tried it yet. Its a powder. This was part of the freebie.

OK so you all probably know Toff from I’m a celebrity. She suffers with bad skin and works alongside Dermalogica. So if you spent over £30 and put in the code TOFF then you got some extras.

Not sure how long the offer is on but the freebies are about £20 if you bought them.

Oh this was at the bottom of the box, 4 of them actually. I’m hoping they make my skin perfect like their name.

Thanks for stopping by
