SKINCARE WISHLIST










I’m not going to lie; I’m not exactly a skincare junkie. I always insist on taking off my make-up properly before bed no matter what state I’m in but other than that I just follow a very simple cleanse-tone-moisturise routine. No fancy gels or treatments in sight. However, it seems a lot of my most read blogs are on the other end of the spectrum and the skincare love is beginning to rub off on me just a little bit. So here’s a line up of the products I’m currently coveting. Some of these I'm ashamed to admit I've never tried and most of them are totally out of my price range but a girl can dream, right?



Have you tried any of these products? What’s on your current wish list?

SHOPPING THE STASH #1































I’ve been desperate to go on a shopping spree recently. Unfortunately due to travelling, housing deposits and summer rent I’m far too poor (anyone else counting down the seconds ‘til student loan arrives?) Anyway I was having a massive make-up collection and wardrobe clear out the other day, inspired by Anna’s videos and came across some old gems, so thought I’d do a ‘shopping my stash post.’

LIP LINER AS LIPSTICK



I’ll let you in to a little secret… despite being a bit of a lipstick hoarder, I actually often prefer to wear lip liner all over the lip instead.

UPDATE: WHERE HAVE I BEEN?/INTERRAILING

Hello!

Long time, no blog. Or at least for me anyway, I’ve had a few scheduled posts up for you guys to read but as I’ve mentioned previously I’ve been away on a 4 and a half week interrail trip around Europe. Trying to get back into the swing of blogging is a lot harder than I expected, so I thought I’d ease myself in with a quick update post.

I got back from my trip late Tuesday night and to be honest all I have done the past two days is sleep and eat a lot. Travelling is so much fun but also VERY exhausting! I haven’t had a bedroom to myself in over a month so it was nice to get some sleep without having to share a room with 8-10 others.

I’m not going to do a massive post going into a tonne of detail as it’s not really what this blog is about, however if you have any questions or want a more in depth review as to whether I think the whole interrail pass is worth it I will happily oblige!

I have over 1000 snaps and right now I’m not totally ready to sort through them as I imagine I’ll get a serious case of post travelling blues, however I will leave you with a few snippets from my phone….




Thanks to everyone who continued visiting my blog and following whilst I was away! It was really hard to keep on top of reading other peoples blogs but I’ll be sure to get up to date with them all soon . If you have any ideas for future posts please send them my way as I’m feeling slightly drained of inspiration right now!

MAKE-UP INSPIRATIONS



I don’t really want my blog to look like a photo diary but today I thought I’d do something different. I pretty much spend all my free time on the likes of Polyvore, Tumblr and Pinterest looking for new beauty and fashion inspiration so today I thought I’d share four of my current beauty icons.
