I feel like this month has been SO long. More than likely because the summer holidays have started and we haven’t been able to get out much!
Kids have been attached to my hip almost constantly, hence the lack of blogging. I hadn’t anticipated that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with my one blog a day routine. So currently in just trying to get one up as often as I can!
So! This months favourites.
After seeing a few of my favourite bloggers mention them on some of their posts, I grabbed a couple to try when I was there a few weeks ago.
I bought 3 in total. Two of the 3 wick ones and a single wick.
They smell amazing! And I love the presentation of the 3 wicks that are in tins.
The tins were £3.50 and the single candle was £2. Well worth the money in my opinion! Not only are they are bargain, but they look nice and smell great.
After being sent a warmer to trial for a blog post. I loved it so much that I bought my own! For those of you that haven’t read my scentsy blog, these are basically an electric wax burner. So no need for tea lights! You just plug them in. And pop a wax melt on top.
The smell is amazing! And there’s a huge range of scents and warmers to choose from. Check out my blog for details on where to purchase.
I chose the Bali, for obvious reasons and I adore it.
Mandala Wall Hanging
Purchased from India only last week and it’s arrived already! Urban outfitters are charging around £40 each for something similar. And as you will have seen from my recent post, we will soon be decorating our bedroom. So we have started to buy bits and pieces.
This was £13.99 on eBay, with free postage. I was expecting it to take ages with it being from India but arrived in just under a week. It’s absolutely enormous!
I have ordered a few others, and have some more in my watch list as I’m not sure how many I will need as I’m recovering my blanket box and the seat of my chair. All in different colours of course.
Excuse the picture, I obviously won’t be hanging them till we have decorated, so I’ve put it on my bed to show you.
Estée Lauder Double wear foundation
Not really sure why I put off purchasing this for so long, mainly the price tag because I usually spend no more than £10 on a foundation.
Everyone knows my love for drugstore makeup brands but I just had to try it and WOW what a difference.
Although I personally find it too heavy for basic day to day, it holds up to everything that it promises and I have used it an awful lot.
It lasts all day, to the point I find myself scrubbing it off my face at the end of the day. My face never feels dry, the coverage is amazing. It’s an all round winner.
However I think this shade is too dark for me, fine for when I have fake tan on but not without, so will be trying a different shade next time!
Barry M – Make me blush cream
Just recently I was talking to a friend about the memory I had of being a little girl and watching my mum use her lipstick on her cheeks as rouge. And this product totally reminded me of that, so that’s why I bought it!
They have a few different shades, but I like bright pink on my cheeks. Goes on lovely and I just blend it in with a brush!
Lush – Gay is ok soap
Smells fruity, spicy and gives a bit a of twinkle. I absolutely LOVE it. But that’s nothing new, there doesn’t seem to be much that I don’t love from Lush.
Garnier – Micellar Cleansing water
I have super sensitive skin, so I don’t really have a skin care routine because most products really irritate my face.
However, I purchased this and i absolutely love it. It’s so gentle on my skin, leaves me feeling fresh but also takes my makeup off like a dream!
I use it every morning when I wake up and then use it before bed to take my makeup up.
Glossy box favourite – Teoxane cosmeceuticals – Perfect skin Refiner
I’ve noticed an incredible difference in my skin with this product, so much so that I dug my glossy box information card out to see how much the full sized product is.
😐 It’s £70…. There has to be something similar out there for cheaper?! Does anyone know of a different brand? If not, I really think it’s something I might have to save up for because it’s honestly amazing.
I apply it after I’ve taken all my makeup off and cleansed my skin. It stings a little when I’m applying it but I’ve been told that’s supposed to happen.
My skin already feels more taught and smoother than it has been in a long time!
