Sunny Saturday.

Hi, I know, I missed a day, it i was stuck in college all day and I was so tired when I came home! A poor excuse…. But still……

Okay, moving on, as to day was yet ANOTHER sunny day we headed out early on to do some shopping! But sadly I didn’t buy much…. I know, I must be ill, or skint… Lets go with the latter.
What I did buy, I bought with my boots points, so it was free! I love me some freebies!
The first thing I got was a body butter from Soap and Glory.

It is indeed small but I love it as I get to try a small amount to see if I like it! The consistency is lovely and it smells wonderful, I can’t quite describe the smell, bit trust me its good!

The second thing I got was FREE in this months Glamour magazine which was only £1. It is a black eye liner pencil made by Model Co.

As it was free I wasn’t expecting miracles, but to be honest I really like this! I haven’t used it on my lid but used it on the water line, and it worked a treat. It glided on straight away and it lasted most of the day…. I would recommend this!

And now, onto shuffle song of the day! It’s by Joshua Radin, and it’s called I’d rather be with you!
This song is soooo lovely! Take a listen NOW!

And I’m done…
See you in a bit folks.

The Quest for Perfect Skin…

Welcome,welcome, come on in! Well today was Monday. I’m sure most of you knew that. So Monday meant that it was back to college… Sarcastic yay! It wasn’t too bad actually as one of my lessons had been cancelled, so only had to go to English! Winning! And I was literally saved by the bell, as the fire alarm went off and we could go home early, double winning!

Today’s shoe of the day, is my green studded fake Tom’s.

Super comfy, go with nearly all of me clothes and I got them for £3 in New Look! Wouldn’t recommend you wear them out in the rain as they are not waterproof and tend to make you fall over in front of many people…. Trust me I know this to be true…

As you may have gathered from the title of this blog, I am indeed in search of the perfect skin. I haven’t found the right combination yet, but I am certainly on the way. So I wanted to share with you my nighttime skin routine, from beginning to end! So here it goes!

Firstly I start with my bioderma.

20130603-231924.jpg
I tend to use this most on my eyes, as I wear an eyeliner most days, it can be a struggle to get off with a make up removal wet wipe! But with this it comes off with ease.
You can get the Bioderma here!
If your quick and buy it in June, there is a 1/3 of all Bioderma products! Grab yourself a bargain!

Next I use a larger cotton wool pad and remove all the makeup and dirt from my face with my Garnier Soothing Cleansing Lotion.

20130603-232117.jpg
I put this all over my face, and it works as both a make up remover and a cleanser all in one!
Great Stuff! By the way I got this in Home Bargains (a better version of a pound shop) for £1.99

I then use a toner, just to even out my skin tone and cleanse it even more!

I also got this in Home Bargains for £1.50

Next I use my Simple hydrating light moisturiser. I can’t get enough of this stuff, I rave about it all the time!

I got this in Lidl for £1.99

Finally, if I have time, and I’m not too tired I will use my Lush ‘Angels on Bare Skin’ fresh facial cleanser.

Now, I don’t use this everyday, as I can’t be bothered. But when I do get round to doing it I flippin love it. It reduced redness, makes my skin feel so soft and best of all it seems to prevent spots from appearing. Love love love this!
You can get it here!

The biggest tip I can give for those with bad skin and desperately want to improve it is….
Get rid of the make up remover wipes! Do it NOW!!!
I know they are quick and easy to use but they will reck and dry out your skin. I know that they are cheap too, but most of the products I have used are really cheap and available in most high street shops… Boots, super drug, etc. Trust me, you will thank me later.

Now, onto shuffle song of the day!
It’s from the album
Ukulele Songs by Eddie Vedder and its the song ‘Can’t Keep’.
Such a beautiful song, and one you should listen to. The whole album, in fact is a beaut, and a great summer one too!
Listen to the song here.

And that’s all from me, and it’s been lovely.
See you soon.

Good day, sunshine!

Bonjour, friends of the blogging world, delightful to see you all again. It’s been a lovely quiet day, so it’s gonna be a shorter blog post than normal.
Well it’s been another glorious day in the land of the Welsh, and not a drop of rain in sight… What is going on?
As it was hot, I decided it was a special enough occasion to bring out my Cath Kidston pumps.

20130602-230631.jpg
I rarely wear these, not because I don’t like them, but because I don’t want to wear them out because I am soooo in love with them. I was given them by my parents for my birthday last year, and I have cherished them ever since. You can’t get these exact ones in CK anymore, but they tend to bring out different sorts of pumps every year, so look out because they are excellent.

Yesterday I mentioned how dry my skin was on my face, and unfortunately my hands are just as dry. But I have found a product that is truly wonderful. It’s another one from soap and glory.
It’s called Hand Food!

20130602-231115.jpg
Unlike other hand creams I have used it absorbs instantly and it doesn’t feel greasy after, which is a big thumbs up for me! You can get the cream here…
Soap and Glory also do a foot cream which I am going to buy next, I will let you know what I think of it then.

And onto Shuffle Song of the Day. It’s by Queen, on their album ‘sheer heart attack’ called
Killer Queen! ‘Its guaranteed to blow your mind’! Take a look here!

Well that’s another blog post come and gone, where does the time go?
See you tomorrow.
