Wish List

I am constantly lusting after things (skincare products, make up, fashion) – but do not always have the reflecting bank balance to get them. So..I always have a wish list.  A lot of the products on my list have been there for quite a long time..but hopefully I can cross them off soon!

So, here goes..

1.       Bumble and Bumble surf spray – I have heard so many amazing things about this product! I love the whole effortless beach hair look and cannot wait to try this. 

2.      Zara Sandals – I have a thing for nude heels – and am developing a slight obsession with the Perspex trend that’s going round.  This combines both and is a major lust item for me!

3.       Philip Kingsley Maximizer – As well as loving the beach look – I also love having big shiny hair. This is exactly what the Maximizer claims to do  - give super volume to fine hair whilst adding control and shine.

4.      Soap&Glory Sit Tight intense XS – Anything by Soap&Glory is attractive to me. This claims to be a super strength body firming serum – enough said!

5.     Yves Sant Laurent: Forever young liberator Serum – another serum, but this time for my face. Despite the hefty price tag – I have high hopes for this serum. The fact that it can be used across all age ranges also attracts me.

6.    Murad Vitalic T-zone pore refining gel – Another pricey product but with very positive reviews. It claims to clear and minimize pores whilst maintaining a balance between oily and dry skin.

7.   Nars Velvet gloss lip pencil – Everything that was good about the Matte lip pencil – but with a luminous glossy finish.  Need this!!

8.   Chanel Tan de Soleil – How can I not want this after the huge impression it has had across the beauty world?!

9.   Nars Multiple in G-Spot – I love rose gold. And this is described as a rich, gold infused rose. It is a gorgeous bronzey plum colour with a gold shimmer running through it.  I already have the multiple in 'Riviera' and can’t wait to get this one!

10. Caudalie Teint Divin Mineral Tinted Moisturizer – I am a fan of the Caudalie brand and have  the Beauty Elixir which is amazing! I regularly mix my foundation with my moisturiser to make my own tinted moisturizer – so would like to finally try one.

11. Joico K-Pak Deeppenetrating reconstructor – This contains keratin silicone complex and Quadramine Complex, which both infuse hair with strength, vitality and improved elasticity leaving hair soft, shiny and noticeably stronger.  Who wouldn’t want this?

Are any of these products on your wishlist? 
Do you own any of these? Should I get them?

What's in my travel make-up bag?

Us ladies have the prerogative to carry around all our essential make up items for touch up’s during the day.  To be honest, if I could, I would carry my whole bathroom cupboard with me!  But, for the sake of my shoulders, I try to stay restrained and only carry around the necessities.

My travel make up bag (from Primark a while back) is 2 sided – I love that its clear so I can see exactly what I want and where it is.

For my face:
 Mac select cover-up concealer in ‘NW30’ (which I apply with my fingers).
Mac Mineralise Skin Finish Natural in ‘Medium Dark’
Angled powder brush (for face powder)
Rimmel powder blush in ‘004 – Pink rose’
Jemma Kidd Stippling brush (for blush)

For my lips:

EOS lip balm
YSL Rouge pur lipstick in ‘128 – Tyrian purple’
Mini lipbrush

For my eyes:
Eyelash curlers
Bodyshop Eye definer in ‘Carbon Black’
Lancome Liner Design in ‘02’

General items:

Rose water
2 mini perfumes (YSL Elle and CK Shock)
Blotting sheets
L’Occitance hand cream
Hair slide
Extra gum

This is generally what stays in my travel make-up bag all the time, however I usually have a range of different lipsticks stashed around my handbag!!

What make-up product can you not leave home without?

Product Rave – Soap and Glory body products!

This is more of a Brand Rave... Back in December, I received a (huge) soap & glory gift hamper for Christmas.  Being the beauty product hoarder that I am, I had quite a few things lined up to finish before I could start using these products.  But now that I have, I’m in love!

The hamper included:
Hand Food™ hand cream 125ml
 The Righteous Butter™ body butter 300ml
Heel Genius™ foot cream 125ml
Clean On Me creamy clarifying shower gel 500ml
Calm One, Calm All™ bubble bath 500ml
Pulp Friction™ body scrub 250ml
Face, Soap & Clarity™ fresh facial wash 150ml
Off Your Face™ cleansing wipes (25 wipes)
Mist You Madly™ fragrant body spray 250ml
Sexy Mother Pucker™ lip plumper in Candy Gloss 7ml

First of all, what an amazing gift set?! 10 full size products  - all housed in a useful carry case.

Now this was not my first time using soap&glory products, as I’d had the Hand Food Hand cream previously, which I loved! And had also read a great review of the brand by Fleur de Force..So I had high expectations.

Well, my expectations were met and surpassed..  I think what I love most about these products is the scent – it is divine! I can’t get enough of it! You NEED to smell this (I fall short on the scent description area).  The packaging is also really cute and quirky- with a retro 50's theme.

I don’t feel the need to go into detail about each product individually, as I can confidently say that each and every one of them is amazing!  The quality of these products are top-notch and I honestly cannot think of anything bad to say about the range.  The only product I have not used is the Sexy Mother Pucker lip plumper (as I’m not much of a lipgloss girl) – however, after giving this to a friend, she has said nothing but good things about it and claims that the gloss definitely plumps up her pout!  She has however commented that there is a slight tingling feeling after you apply it  - so if you don’t like that, this won’t be for you. 

I cannot rave enough about how much I love these products, and they have become my firm staples!  Unfortunately, the hamper is no longer available, but you can purchase any of the products individually from Soap&Glory directly and also at Boots (who often have sets available).

I truly am in love with the soap&glory brand and can’t wait to get my hands on their make up range as well – which I’m sure will be just as great.

Have you tried any of the Soap&Glory products?
What do you recommend for me to try first from the make-up range?

Welcome to my world!

Hi everyone, ‘welcome to my blog’ I should say, but world just seems better! Because the things I intend to write about here, make my world.  I have been reading blogs for years, and I have gained so much from the bloggers that I follow and they are the ones who inspired me to start my own. At first I thought to myself, with all these amazing blogs and even more amazing bloggers, how can I even hope to find a place here? But I, like all of you reading this (I assume) have a huge interest in all things beauty and cutie related. All I want to do is share this interest with you, so that we can all revel in its awesomeness.

Please feel free to help me start up this blog. Any suggestions for future posts?
Welcome once again....
