Weekly Favourites 28th August 2014

Favourites 28.08.2014
 
 
1, Bourjois CC Cream (Colour correction)
I seen this product recommended on You Tube by Gemma Jade another one of my favourite You Tube channels.
I wanted to try out a BB or CC cream so thought I would try this first. I got this on Saturday and it cost me £10. Its so amazing and works really well on my skin. I use this every day now and its my favourite current product.
 
2, Lush Bath bomb
I used my first Lush Bath Bomb today and it was sooo nice. I went for the Dragons Egg which was recommend to me as it lasts the longest in your bath. It was so nice it changed the colour of your bath to yellow but has lots of other different colours in the bomb. This also has popping candy and you can hear this popping in your bath. I find it hard to explain smells, but this smelt like a scent I have smelt in a spa before. Cant wait to try my next bath bomb.
 
3, Shopping
I went shopping twice over the bank holiday weekend. Once with friends on Saturday then with my mum on Monday. Its so nice to spend time with people close to you and shopping is always fun. I went to Bath both times and I managed not to spend too much money. Well behaved me.
 
4, Becky CJ
Zoella recommened Becky CJ in her recent favourites video on You Tube. I had to give it a try so downloaded her 2 LPs from I-Tunes. Zoella was right she is so good and I cant stop listening to her on repeat for the past week. Her music is so chilled and she has a lovely voice. She sounds a little like Kate Nash whos  music I also love.
 
5, Nivea Day Cream
This is my daily cream I use in the morning. I know its only a cheap moisturiser but it does the job for me. Its light on your skin so you feel all refreshed. It also contains SPF 15 which is useful in the summer. I would recommend this as a good cheap day cream to put on your skin under your make up.

LUSH HAUL

Bath Shop Photos

My new Lush products
 
So since I have got into reading Blogs and watching You Tube channels I have been introduced to the LUSH shop. I have fallen in love with this shop and cant stop buying new things from there.
 
The above photos show some of my recent purchases which are,
 
1, Bubble Bar
The lady in the shop recommended The Comforter so this is what made me buy this one. As well as smelling gorgeous its pretty big as well so think I will get a few baths out of this bar. 
Price £4.50
 
2, Bath Bombs
I have got the Dragons Egg which again was recommended by the lady in the shop. She said this one last the longest with the fizziness in your bath and also in the book it describes this as popping candy and swirling sparkles. Sounds so exciting and cant wait to try this.
Price £3.25
 
The other bath bomb I got was Twilight, this one caught my eye as its looked pretty with the purple colour and the stars and moon shapes on it. This has lavender in it so should help me to relax and sleep.
Price £3.25
 
3, Fresh Face Mask
I was unsure on which face mask to buy but picked this one out. There are so many to pick from. So I have gone for BB Seaweed. I love a relaxing bath with a face mask and plan to use this soon. I think I may do a whole blog on reviewing this product so keep an eye out for that.
Price £6.50
 
4, Lip Scrub
I have read so much about these in Blogs and it sounded like something different that I just had to try out. I went for the Bubblegum flavour. I have already tried this and I have to admit this is so gorgeous and tastes yummy.
Price £5.50
 
I also have in the photo the latest Lush catalogue showing all the shops products. Some light reading to keep me entertained.
 
So what are you favourite Lush products? Please comment below so I know what to buy next time I visit.

Weekly Favourites 21st August 2014

Favourites 21.08.2014
 
 
 
1, Aussie Hair Treatment
3 minute miracle hair treatment for colour treated hair. I have highlighted hair so and it needed a bit of a pick me up. I seen this and it only cost me £1.99 which is pretty cheap. I managed to get 2 uses out of this and used it once a week. I used this last night when I had my bath and I had so many comments about how my highlights were showing up today. Also makes my hair silky smooth.
 
2, Nando's
I went to Nando's last Friday with three of my friends. We have just had a new one built in the town next to me. This was the first time I have visited it since it opened. I am not a regular at Nando's so wasn't sure what to order. But I had the Peri-peri butterfly chicken with Peri-peri chips and Grilled Halloumi cheese. was so yummy and I want to go back soon. The restaurant has such a  great happy atmosphere.
 
 
3, Daisy Earrings
My new daisy earrings. I went to buy these about a month ago but the lady on the checkout didn't put them through the till and left them in the basket. When I got home I was gutted I hadn't got them. I went back 2 weeks later and purchased them. They are from Primark and I think they were £1.50 so cheap but look so nice when I wear them
 
 
4, Gabriella- Velvet Ghost
Gabriella Is my new You Tube favourite at the moment I love her channel and also her vlog channel. She makes me laugh and is so down to earth. Looking forward to watching her moving vlogs coming up soon. Check her out if you have not yet watched any of her videos yet.
Who is your favourite You Tube channel at the moment?
 
5, Tic Tacs
These new Tic Tacs are called Strawberry Fields and taste delicious. If you have not tried these yet you need to I promise you will like these. I handed some out to people at work today and everyone loved them. They also look cute as they are pink :-)

Weekly Favourites 14th August 2014

14.08.2014

1, Kimono Top
I brought this at the weekend when I went shopping. Its so pretty and looks so good on. This is from Primark and only costs £10. Also goes with so many colours of clothing.

2, Coconut & Vanilla Cream Candle
This candle also from Primark and purchased at the weekend. I love the Primark candles and they are so cheap costing only £1.00. The scent is really gorgeous and as soon as you walk in the room you can smell the scent from the candle.

3, Yoga and my Yoga Mat
Tonight I went to Yoga, first time in weeks. I am feeling very stressed at the moment with work and a few other things. Yoga really helps with this as it clears your mind and helps you to relax. I love how I feel after the class. I want to try and stick with this and go once a week.
My Yoga Mat I got from Very catalogue and its from Pineapple.

4, 24 Season One
I started watching 24 in March and finally watched the last episode last night. Yes I know it has taken me a long time to get to the end, but come on it is 24 episodes ha ha. This is such a good TV programme and  I would highly recommend it. I don't get into TV that easily but this kept me interested all through the whole season. I have heard from people that the next season is not as good, but I will give it ago.

5, Bloglovin
I have finally worked out how to use Bloglovin. I am new to all this and it takes me a while to work out how things work. I love this and get very excited when I have new followers. I now also have the app on my phone so I can keep track of everybody else's blogs throughout the day. I just love it. Please follow me http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12578141

I hope you enjoyed my blog this week. Sorry no beauty favourites this week.

Weekend Breakfast




 Sunday Breakfast

Me and my housemate decided to treat ourselves and go for breakfast.
We went to Frankie and Bennys and we sat outside which was really nice as it was a nice morning.
We both had the Big Breakfast which was so delicious, a nice sized meal and only costs £5.00.
The best thing about having breakfast at Frankie and Bennys is unlimited tea and coffee so we sat there a while taking full advantage of this.
We plan to treat ourselves to more breakfast mornings out as its pretty cheap and saves us from having to cook and clean up at a weekend.

Short and sweet today but thanks for reading my blog
