My on- the-go essentials!!

Blogging on my phone again! The joys!
This is just a quick run down of all the bits i like to take out and about with me in my trusty makeup bag, :) here goes!!

1. Body shop mineral powder blotting sheets:
I love these body shop blotting sheets, they really help me when my oily skin is playing up, i like blotting any oilyness away, and going over with a bit of powder.

2. Natural collection pressed powder(cool):
Pretty self explaitory! Just for a touch up, i also carry my small MAC powder brush along with it!

3. Clarins hand and nail treatment cream:
I absolutely love this stuff, its a gorgeous thick cream which soaks in really well, it feels really luxurious and it smells lovely!

4. M&s mint breath refresher spray:
This one again is pretty self explanatory, this little spray is great for after a meal, or coffee, it makes you feel minty fresh again!

5. A pretty little tin of 'lady things' haha!

6. Lavender cooling stick( norfolk lavendar):
When i was a baby my grandma used to rub this on my head in cool weather, and i still do now! You just rub this little stick over your forehead and wrists and it gives a lovely cool feeling, plus, it smells lovely!

7. Soap and glory hand maid hand sanitizer:
I think everyone and their mother has one of these in their handbags! This is a lovely little hand sanitizer which smells gorgeous and cleans your hands up! Perfect!

8. Elemis loving lips lip balm:
I always have some sort of lip conditioning product, i put this one in after getting it as a freebie,i really love it because its so minty and fresh,

9: painkillers!

10. Mirror, of course! (Disaster designs)

11. Clarins (rebalancing fragrance):
This is the most perfect fragrance for on the go, its very soapy and fresh, just lovely when youve forgotten to spritz your perfume in the morning! Or a top up during the day :)

Also, i would usually carry whichever lipstick im wearing, and a lipcote, but im not wearing any today!

Monthly Favourites - March 2013

This is super super late i know! Buy this is going to be my march favourites :)

First, ill start off with a shampoo, its the lush 'big' shampoo. I actually hated this when i first bought it, as i felt that it dried my hair out, and when rubbing the salt into my hair it caused massive knots, however, i persevered with it, and teamed with a good conditioner its lovely! Also, i tried rubbing it between my hands a little before lathering it into my hair, which helped with the knots. And since working with it a little, its actually helping my natural curls massively, so yeah, thumbs up!

Next up is a lipstick/liner combo. Over this (long, looong) winter, ive been loving a good red lip, and im really liking this combo at the moment it is the natural collection lipstick in 'red cherry' and the barry m liner in number 3 i believe. These just go really well together, and neither break the bank!

Next is another lush product, the 'rocketeer' bubble bar, ive pictured the one i am currently using next to an unused one, and its amazig, the one on the left has been used in SIX baths!! Its so good! And i mean big tall bubbles. These are pricier than te regular bath bombs but WELL worth it!!

Next is a mascara, this is the seventeen 'doll'd up' mascara. I got this for an absolute BARGAIN with my boots coupons, this usually retails at £6.29 but my coupon allowed me to pick it up for just £2. I always prefer plastic brushes as they seperate the lashes nicely and create a natural look. The shape of the brush also fits the lashes nicely and makes the application very easy! *love love love *

My last favourite this month is a high end lipstick. It is Estee lauder pure colour in 123 'fig' these lipsticks are super creamy and moosturising, not drying at all, plus i love this darker vampier red colour, plus the packaging on these is beautiful!

What were your favourite beauty bits this month??

REVIEW - Liz Earle Hair oil

Hey guys! So i thought id do a review on something ive been loving recenty, the Liz earle botanical shine hair oil. This stuff is gorgeous! It can be used, like most oils, on wet or dry hair, ive been using it on my wet hair. As it helps budge any knotts, which helps my curls massively, as i dont have to use a brush afterwards.

This smells exactly the same as the botanical shine shampoo, which is also lovely (i like it for makeup brush cleaning, as it is very gentle) its a very natural smell, not too soapy an overpowering, this oil is in the mid way kind of price brackett, retailing at £15.00 for a 50ml bottle, i think this is a great price for a high end brand hair oil, definitely worth a try!!

You can sap thisone up from the liz earle website HERE

Have you tried any hair oils? Which is your favourite?
