My city break beauty/skincare essentials

In 2 days my partner and I are traveling to Edinburgh for a long weekend, I’m in love with this city and can’t wait to show into my partner! We will only be there for 4 days so we are sharing a North Face base camp duffel bag, which means packing light! This might be difficult!

That past few weeks my skin hasn’t been right so I’m taking minimal make up on this trip to let my skin get back on track! But I will be tacking the basics my Born this way Two faced foundation, massacre and my soup and glory eye brow pencil.

The travel bag ill be taking is my new Rituals Travel bag – £25  the main pocket is massive, inside as two smaller pockets perfect for small lipsticks or balms. I really love this bag, it hold more than I thought it would and the colour is amazing!

Inside my travel bag

LUSH – The Comforter – £9.95 I love this shower creme and couldn’t imagine traveling without it. As I have the large bottle I’m going to transfer some to a small travel sized container. The comforter leaves your skin felling soft and smelling amazing!

LUSH Bubblegum lip scrub – £5.75 Edinburgh is cold and my lips can get easy shaped and sore so this is a must! I’ll be keeping tis in my small backpack for while we are exploring the city. This product is perfect for taking away dry skin before applying lip blame or lipstick.

Simple Kind to skin face wash & moisturizer, My skin recently has been horrible all due to stress! So iv been focusing a lot on my skin care route and see what works for me. I’m taking both so I can carry on part of my skin care route while I’m away.

I also have the cleanser and toner which iv been loving but my parter will kill me if I take all these bottles. He’s carrying the back pack!!

Paul Smith Tooth brush £11, I received this as a gift years go and totally forgot about it.  I love it as a travel toothbrush.

Lastly I’m be taking my Tangle Tezzer, I can not travel with out this thing!!

I hope you liked this post and found it little bit helpful, I’ll be sharing a lot about my Edinburgh trip in the next few week’s so stay tuned!

There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow ~ Walt Disney

Since receiving my bangle I haven’t taken it of! The bangle is really high quality and is beautifuly engraved. They add a little Disney magic to your everyday, they look perfect on their own or stacked with other Lillian & Co bracelet’s.

Lillian & Co’s packaging is also high quality, my bangle came in a white velvet pouch and a white jewellery box which features their simple black text logo. The attention to detail from the packaging to the bangle it’s self makes this an awesome gift!!

Have a magical day!!

Joules & Lush ~ Chester Shopping Trip!

Joules Over sized Scarf  French Navy Check  £29.95 ~ I love this scarf! Iv been on the hunt for an over sized scarf for month now, but they all had the same problem the material was to rough and scratchy. This scarf is so soft, as it’s so big you can wear it in so many different way’s!

LUSH Lip Scrub, Bubblegum ~ With winter coming around fast my lips have started to feel it, Iv heard some good reviews on the proudest so i thought i would try it for my self!

Iv been applying this lip scrub every other day, it’s smoothed out my lips and removes the dead skin. It also tastes great!!

Tip ~ this is a must for any lipstick lover!

LUSH shower cream, The comforter ~ I have used the used the comforter bubble bar before and have to be honest hated the scent! This shower cream smells more strongly of blackcurrant, this product is perfect to use after a long stressful day.

What are yor favoute LUSH products?

Green Tea Face Mask

Hi guys today I wanted to share a quick post about a product I’m currently loving. Recently my skin hasn’t been feeling it’s best, so I was on look out for a mask that would help. This is when I found The Creme Shop ~ Green tea face mask 

The Benefits 

Green tea’s anti – bacterial agents regulate hormonal imbalances, thereby reducing inflammation and redness.

  • Hydrating
  • Inflammation Reduction

Iv seen loads of  mixed reviews on this product and was a little sceptical, but honestly I have loved using these mask’s and they really have made a difference to my skin! It feels refreshed, cleaner and smother. As it’s a sheet face mask it’s so much easier to apply and also take off, I would recommend not to wash your face after use, this will allow your skin to absorb the nutrients. Overall I would definitely use this product again!

Tip ~ Refigerate before use for a refreshing, cooling effect, it really makes all the difference.

Do you have any favourite sheet mask’s you would recommend, please leave a comment as I’m  really interested in trying more!

September is here! I really love this time of year, Leaves falling, pumpkins, hot chocolate, the trees turning different shades of orange.  I’ve had one of the best summers travelling around the UK and finally making the move to live in North Wales, 2016 really has been a big year for me! I’m so excited to see where these next few seasons take us! Today I wanted to share a few of the things that are on the top of my wish list!

I’ve always had an addiction to candles, and these two yankee candles are at the top of my wish list! Fire side treats is a perfect scent to burn in October!  Jumpers are my go to on cold Autumn evenings, paired with skinny jeans, boots and fall coloured bag! Lastly, Ugg slippers have been on my wish list for ever! There’s nothing like relaxing at home with a good book or movie and a mug of Coffee! Especially on cold autumn nights!
