Beauty Haul Essentials!

Beauty Haul Essentials!

“Inner beauty is great.. but a little mascara never hurt.” 

Find beauty in everything they said.. so I took a trip to the drug stores and picked out a load of beauty products hehe! ok ok that was cheesy, but no seriously I did, let’s not talk about the price uh oh haha but let’s talk about the products right? hell yes! 

So over the past couple of months I’ve been trying out new products and seeing what works best for me and spending time in america really allowed me to explore different stores and see what products are available! and I think I’ve cracked it, so I thought I’d show you what I got, below are all of the things I have been loving recently! 

 

KUKUI OIL SHAMPOO 

I needed a new shampoo and have been wanting to try OGX for sometime now.. perfect time to purchase or was that a perfect time to purchase it?! well the answer was a perfect time, it works wonders on my hair, I sometimes get a mix between frizzy and dry hair and knowing this has an oil in really works wonders, it targets frizzy hair and gives it a hydrating finish.

SATIN CARE GILLETTE | SHAVING GEL

Instead of beating round the bush I’ll just tell ya that the only main reason I brought this was because I got bikini line spots and I really wanted to get rid of them, so after much research well.. as everyone does.. searching through pinterest I came across using a shaving “gel” as before I’m not gonna lie I didn’t use anything. In case you have the same issue as me.. another tip I found useful was to shave with the grain and not shaving against it and can I say.. something worked because I’ve not had any spots since. yay!

JOHN FRIEDA | FRIZZ EASE 

Purposely brought because I frequently get frizzy hair, this stuff is great and I’m not just saying that.. I apply it after I’ve had a shower to damp hair and leave it in, it works wonders. Definitely up there with one of my best beauty purchases yet.

ELEGANT TOUCH 

You know once you’ve showered and you wanna paint your nails but your constantly procrastinating because it takes so long to dry and then your afraid of moving incase you smudge them and it’s like ALL I WANT TO DO IS TOUCH THE TV REMOTE haha, can you relate? was that not the best example? haha, well this stuff is the bomb it literally dries your nails in like 60 seconds, makes your nails a little shiny to.

TRESEMME SEA SALT SPRAY

Recently purchased this from superdrug, thought I’d give it a try to see how much “beach waves” turn out. Anyone tried this sea salt spray yet? pretty pricey so I’m hoping it was worth the money.

SALLY HANSEN STRENGTHENER 

Got this because at my work I’m not allowed to wear nail varnish, this is just a clear coat but it does makes my nails shiny and at the same time strengthens them.

RIMMEL NAIL POLISH

I am so in love with black nail polish at the moment.. I have no idea why haha. Going for that Coachella vibe perhaps. It just corresponds well with any outfit don’t you think? Anyhow I’m loving it.. I have it on right now as I type this haha. I purchased the Rimmel polish. I also love the fact that Rimmel have the 60 second drying nail polish WHAT did Jess just say?! Yes girls 60 seconds which persuaded me even more to purchase these bloody beauties.

SPRUNCH AUSSIE HAIRSPRAY

To cut a long story short.. Trevor had this at his house and I asked him if I could borrow it. Turns out I LOVED it didn’t I! So before I went home to the UK I brought one to use as I know we don’t have this sprunch hairspray here. It’s great for your curls and locks in your hair for them breezy days. This is in my top 3 of favorite hairsprays.

Simple Mother’s Day Gifts To Make

Simple Mother’s Day Gifts To Make

IMG_7056ed

So Mother’s day is approaching in the USA and you’re on a budget? I get it, well I’m going to show you today that there are some really simple, easy, painless, straightforward and diverse ideas that you can create in your very own home.

Let’s start with mason jars, they are totally in trend right now and they really portray a vintage vibe. I had one in my bedroom not really doing much but sitting there all pretty for decoration staring right at me, what could I do with something like that? well look no further, pick up that jar and fill it with anything you can find, for me I went straight to the shredder and filled it with some shredded paper at the bottom for like a base as such and then you can simply place anything you find lying around the house that hasn’t been opened which could potentially be a gift, or it doesn’t even have to be a gift, here I’ve filled my jar with some nail varnishes and will call it “Manicure in a jar” your mum will love these little pamper treats, fill it with some of her favorite colors so she has a choice to choose from, choice is always good! 

IMG_7037ed    IMG_7038

Or if you do not have a mason jar at home look around for what you could have? I also found a china dish in my bedroom which was empty, perfect for filling and using as a gift! Below are a few pictures of how I have put together a little gift set involving the china dish, I found these things around my home.

So there you have it many ideas on how to simply create a mother’s day gift from home, get creative and let me know if you’ve made anything similar! If you don’t already know, pinterest has many ideas from creating candles to baking flower cupcakes, bath salts, handcrafted flower bouquets, soaps, salt dough bowls, bath bombs, light bulb flower vases, sugar scrubs and it could even be something simple as making your mum some breakfast in bed. You name it, pinterest has every idea so more inspiration go and take a look on there!

Our February Favorites!

Our February Favorites!

It’s nearly spring time! 

🙂

Hello everyone! So as we already say goodbye to February and jump into another month! which means.. more chocolate as easter really isn’t far away my friends. Do we have any favorite easter eggs? I know my favorite is galaxy chocolate egg or the Lindt chocolate and Trevor’s favorite is Lindt also. I know that ever since I was a little girl I’ve always been told the saying “Pinch Punch first day of the month” and saying “white bunny’s” before midday was always meant to be a sign of “Good Luck” coming, did anyone else get told this when they were younger? So without further ado, we decided we wanted to share with you some of our favorite things we have enjoyed using throughout February! 

Frith Apparel

Trevor has recently set up his new online clothing company and is called “Frith Apparel” he sells his own designs on T-shirts, hoodies and women’s leggings. Trevor recently gave me a top called “Nap Queen” from off his site and I’m so in love with it! the texture is lovely and you can choose from a variety of T-shirt colors, as well as this he also gave me a pair of leggings/yoga pants which I am in love with! I love them because I can use them to work out in but also to wear out and about. 

To visit his new site and get ordering visit Frith Apparel here – www.FrithApparel.com

Simple makeup wipes

I recently brought the “simple cleansing makeup wipes” and after trying other wipes these ones work well for my face and clear makeup off in an instant, the wipes have a lot of moisture in and they are great for sensitive skin. I will be buying these again and highly recommend you to give these wipes a go!

Simple moisturizer 

Trevor recently brought this moisturizer and is loving it! He feels that this moisturizer does not make your skin feel oily compared to other moisturizer brands and it works quickly after putting it on after a shower, great for dry and sensitive skin.

Estee Lauder – Double wear foundation and Concealer 

I recently got this double wear foundation and concealer by Estee Lauder as I was wanting to try a darker shade and try a different cosmetic company and honestly it’s great, it really doesn’t give me that oily look and I was really impressed at how long the makeup stays on my face for throughout the day without having to reapply, however it is on the pricey side for makeup and the foundation does not have a pump so it can get a little messy when trying to pour it out and manage the ratio for your knowing how much you will need. Overall, one of my favorite foundation and concealers.

Snow Rose – Lulu Taylor

I recently brought this story book to Michigan with me and it’s great, the story is written well and describes the characters and story clearly, it really does draw you in and makes you feel as if you are another character hidden in the corner listening in to all of the different conversations going on around you, some parts of the story make you want to grip onto the book a little tighter. A beautiful old vintage Victorian house that hasn’t been touched for years get’s open up to Kate or shall I say Rachel, get taken through the past of the house with characters and find out what happens along the way.

EOS – Blackberry Nectar 

I recently got this EOS lip balm in the flavor – Blackberry Nectar, it’s lovely and you can really taste/smell the blackberry coming through. EOS are my favorite lip balms and I also have Watermelon which is really lovely.

Refresh Tears – Eye drops

Trevor’s favorite eye drops as they feel refreshing and reacts quick and feels natural so you do not get that gel feeling.

Cheetos

Since coming to Michigan I love Cheetos! haha, I love cheese so that’s probably why, In the UK we have watsits which are the equivalent to Cheetos. Trevor actually brought me some for valentine’s day.

Bath and Body works – Shower gel and body lotion

I recently went to the bath and body works store and came across one of my new favorite scents in a shower gel called “Cocktail Dress” from their signature collection the scent is so nice and has a blackberry smell to it, it does leave your body smelling so nice for a while after which I love. However I believe it may have been a limited edition one because after going back into the store they didn’t have it any more. I did pick up the scent “cashmere glow” in the body lotion, which is also nice and leaves my body feeling soft and smelling lovely. This is still available to buy.

Notebook

I have been loving my new notebook! I write down all of our blog ideas and it really helps me to be organized. Love love love it!

Suave Shampoo – Macadamia Oil – Normal to dry hair

I recently started using this new shampoo and it has a lovely scent to it as well as this it is perfect for those of you who have dry hair and needs some oil/moisture to it. Works for me so give it a try.

4k Action Camera

Trevor recently received the 4K action camera and is loving every minute with it, taking some snaps and recording videos on day trips out. The best thing about the camera is that the wide-angle is great for when taking pictures.
