I’m so done with lugging around loads of unnecessary things in my bag so I’ve had a huge clear out. Apart from the obvious essentials such as my purse and phone I’ve narrowed it down to these six items.
My Lips have been extremely chapped lately and nothing seems to soothe them other than good old Carmex! A definite must have.
I always carry around a hand cream as my hands get so dry this time of year, I’m currently using The Body Shop’s mango one which smells good enough to eat.
When travelling on public transport hand sanitiser is a life saver. This Merci Handy cherry one is my favourite.
I’d be lost without my headphones and this Skullcandy pair come with a little faux leather pouch meaning they don’t get tangled up in your handbag.
I take my tangle teezer everywhere to keep my hair in check.
A roll on perfume is perfect for touch ups throughout the day and this Zara one in the scent ‘cashmere rose’ smells divine.

L’Eau De Rose
The L’eau de rose perfume by Jeanne Arthes is definitely a new favourite of mine, I received it in my February glossybox and have been loving it since. It’s so light and girly and perfect for everyday wear.
‘Representing simple elegance, L’Eau de Rose reflects the sensual and modern woman. A refreshing and sophisticated composition for a classy and stimulating fragrance. A perfume which represents the delicate and seductive woman perfectly – a homage to romance and femininity.’
RRP: £20.30 for 30ml
I’d never used a Vera Wang perfume before I received this one for my birthday in February but I’m loving it! It’s the perfect scent for summer evenings as it is quite deep and musky without being too heavy.
‘There’s an instant attraction to the mouth-watering pink guava and mandarin which is followed by a delicate mix of tuberose and lotus blossom.Behind it all, precious woods and sheer musk combine to create a passionate elegance. Vera Wang Lovestruck represents an irresistible romance and captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love and captivated by passion.’
RRP: £70 for 100ml
This is definitely my favourite perfume of the three and I wear it everyday for work, the smell lasts all day long and it’s an absolute bargain!
‘Woody – Floral – Peach – Caramel – Rose – Jasmine – Violet – Cedar.’
£12.99 for 100ml
What’s your favourite perfume for spring/summer?
I received my first ever glossy box a couple of days ago and was pleasantly surprised. It came gorgeously packaged in this ‘LOVE’ box to celebrate valentines day and contained five lovely products, four of which were full size. I can’t wait to try them all out!
The first item I pulled out was this L’eau de rose perfume by Jeanne Arthes which smells divine, i’m usually not a huge fan of rose scents as they’re overpowering but this one is really light and girly. It’s also perfect handbag size so you can have a spritz when you need a boost throughout the day.
The second product that I saw was this Ciate nail varnish in ‘fade to greige’. I’m definitely going to be using this, I love this kind of colour on pale skin it’s so flattering.
This Garnier ultimate blends intense care hair mask could not have arrived at a better time, my hair has been so dry since getting it dyed. It’s also a great sized sample and could last for a couple of uses.
The box also contained this mineral-rich volcanic face mask enriched with anti-aging ingredients which helps to cleanse and purify the skin. It’s going to be great for removing all of the dirt and grime off my face at the end of the day and leave it smooth and clear.
This lipstick from MDM flow in the shade ‘Bossy’ lasts all day on the lips as the semi-matte formula gives you the matte look without the cracked, dry lips – love it!
