Each week I’m going to tell you about my favourite thing; whether it be a person, product or something else.

My favourite this week is 17 Blow Out Mascara

I was slightly sceptical about purchasing this mascara as I hadn’t tried any 17 mascaras before, but it’s claim to give my lashes 12 times more volume won me over.

After one use I knew I was going to repurchase it; the huge brush makes my lashes look long and thick whilst ensuring they don’t clump together and the perfect formula contains vitamin E and Argan Oil to help condition and boost lash body. It also lasts all day without flaking or smudging and is very reasonably priced at £6.29.

Why not give it a try?

My favourite this week is Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

It costs around £12.95 which may seem pricey, but for such a good quality product it’s worth it.

Top 5 Tips For Clearing Out Your Wardrobe

It’s vital to sort out your wardrobe every so often to ensure that you aren’t hanging on to clothes you wont wear again; and to make way for new pieces too! I’m going to share with you my 5 top tips for clearing out your wardrobe.
1. Clear out your wardrobe a section at a time.
Emptying your wardrobe into a huge pile can be extremely overwhelming, so instead do it in smaller sections such as pants first then t-shirts.

2. Donate anything that doesn’t fit.
Don’t hold on to items you don’t fit in to in the hope that you one day will – its not worth it. Get rid of those ill fitting clothes and make way for some gorgeous new pieces!

3. Donate any items you haven’t worn in the past year.
Chances are if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in the past year, you wont wear it again.

4. Get rid of anything damaged.
It’s hard to part with your favourite top, but if its stained or covered in holes it’s not worth holding on to. Throw out any items too damaged to wear in public.

5. Get rid of anything that doesn’t suit your body shape
Not all trends suit every body shape, so throw away anything that isn’t flattering. Alternatively, you could modify the clothes to suit your shape in many ways such changing the length.

I hope that I’ve helped you out.

Each week I’m going to tell you about my favourite thing; whether it be a person, product or something else.

My favourite this week is Charles Worthington Front Row Rough and Tousled Salt Spray.

When I was abroad I loved the effect the sea had on my hair, so when I returned back to England I wanted to find something that would do the same thing. After searching through a lot of reviews I came across Charles Worthington’s Front Row Rough and Tousled Salt Spray and thought I would give it a try.

I’ve been using it almost every day since; all I do is spray it through damp hair, tie it up into a messy bun and wait until it dries. Then viola; gorgeous, wavy, natural looking hair.

It also only costs £5.49 at Boots which is great as you don’t need to use a lot.

Have any of you tried it? What are your thoughts?

Holiday Haul

I recently went on holiday to Greece for a week and bought some lovely things that I thought I would share with you.

The first thing I got was this gorgeous leather bag. It cost 60 euros which is great as it’s amazing quality and will never go out of style.

I got this necklace for around 4-5 euros and absolutely love it, it goes with everything and looks a lot more expensive than it is.

This piece cost only 3 euros and gives the effect of wearing more than one bracelet as it wraps around your wrist three times. The blue stones also add a gorgeous pop of colour to a plain outfit.

 I got one of these sponges 9 years ago when I last went to Greece and absolutely loved it so I thought I would get another. It cost 3.50 and works amazing at gently removing dead skin.

I’ve been using olive oil in my hair as a mask to make it soft and shiny, so when I saw these soaps I knew I had to try them to see if the oil worked well on my skin too. It cost 3 euros with the pumice stone which is a great deal.

This bow ring is absolutely beautiful, and it only cost me 3.50!  It’s quite a statement ring which means that you don’t need to wear a lot of other jewellery with it.

The colours and patterns in this 5 euro scarf mean that it will go with a lot of outfits and will also be perfect for transitioning into autumn.

These light pink high tops look gorgeous with tanned legs and go with almost any outfit. They only cost me 29 euros which is a great saving as I would have paid over £40 in England.

I love this ankle bracelet, it looks best when worn with my converse and a pair of shorts. It only cost me 4 euros too, which is a great price.

Overall, I think I got some lovely pieces and great deals.
Have any of you bought anything on your holidays?

Top 3 Face Masks

Having oily, sensitive skin makes finding face masks that work an impossible challenge, they always seem to be too harsh and leave my skin feeling irritated and raw. Finally, after a lot of awful experiences, I’ve found three masks that do wonderful things to my skin.

I’m going to tell you about each of them, in no particular order.

The Body Shop’s Honey & Oat 3 In 1 Scrub Mask

This mask is absolutely brilliant, I use it once a week to soften and gently exfoliate my skin. I would recommend it for all skin types as it is gentle but gives great results as it is so moisturising. It also smells lovely and is easy to apply.

Retails at £9

The Body Shop’s Warming Mineral Mask

I’ve been using this mask for years now, and could honestly never replace it. I use it once a week to give my skin a deep cleanse. It gently warms up when  applied to the skin so it can unclog pores and prevent spots. When rinsed off after the five minutes, it leaves the skin feeling squeaky clean, yet not dry and tight.

Retails at £9

Sanctuary Moisture Boosting Mask

I use this mask whenever my skin is looking dull as it gives the skin a gorgeous healthy glow.  It also seems to calm redness and improves my skin tone and texture.

Retails at £2.03 per sachet

I hope I’ve helped anyone who is struggling to find a good mask.

Review: The Body Shop Lip And Cheek Stain

I got this product out of a magazine and didn’t really expect much of it, however after trying it out I realised just how great it is. It looks extremely bright when first applied to the lips, but after blotting it looks amazing! It gives a subtle red tint of colour which lasts for hours, and looks great with lip gloss on top too.

It also looks gorgeous when used on the apples of your cheeks as it gives the skin a rosy glow whilst still looking extremely natural. I would recommend using a small amount first then building upon it to get the desired look.

Overall, this lip and cheek stain is brilliant if you’re like me and hate having to re-apply your make up through the day.

Retails at £10
Mine is in the shade Rose Pink
