My Favourite Hair Products

Hello everyone, 

I apologise for my very long absence! I haven't had time to blog lately as I have been busy starting back at uni and haven't had much time on my hands at all!
I have still been keeping up with your lovely blogs though and now I am settled back into my flat, it means I'll have plenty more time to blog!

Also I want to welcome the new followers I've gained whilst I've been away! 
Thank you so much for following my blog and I hope you enjoy reading my future posts!

Now my little ramble is out of the way, lets get on with my favourite hair products! I use all of these products on a regular basis and I would say I cannot live without them!

Dove Overnight Intensive Repair |  VO5 Nourish Me Truly Conditioner | Herbal Essences Split Beautiful Ends Leave-in Conditioner | TRESemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo | It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Conditioner | Batiste Dry Shampoo - Tropical | The Body Shop Macadamia Straightening Balm | Davines MOMO Moisturizing Curl Enhancing Serum.

All of these products work brilliantly on my hair! If you haven't tried any of them yet then I highly recommend you do! Most of these products work well to combat frizz and fly-away hair! Definitely my favourite must-have hair products!

What are your Holy Grail hair products??

Hello everyone, I hope you are well!

Last week my lovely boyfriend ordered me the Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV (Vol.4) for £29.99 on a Wowcher deal from  and since then I have been impatiently waiting for it to arrive and this morning it finally did! (Not that I had been waiting very long at all!)

August Favourites

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well!

Today I am sharing my August Favourites with you.

MUA Glamour Days Palette £4.00
This palette is gorgeous! I love how pigmented the colours are and they last me all day without creasing. The colours are gorgeous shades of both matte and shimmers, I have really been enjoying them this summer!

Ben Nye Banana Powder $7.99 (£5.00)
I have been LOVING this powder, I have done a full review on this which you can read it here. I love how flawless it makes my skin look and how it controls my shiny face all day!

MAC Sculpt and Shape - Accentuat/Sculpt
I don't know a price for this as I believe it has been continued but I got this from The Sunday Girl's blog sale a few months ago and have really been loving it! I use it to contour my cheeks and my nose etc I use the lighter shade to highlight my cheekbones and brow bone.

Sleek Blush - Flamingo £4.29
This is such a gorgeous pink colour, it is very pigmented and gives a gorgeous pop of colour on you cheeks. You can layer this blush up or down to intensify the colour or to give a more natural subtle hint of pink.

Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe - Dark 236ml £28.99 approx*
I have only used this a couple of times but think the quality of this product is amazing! The colour goes on evenly and it smells like vanilla which I think is gorgeous and makes a change from the typical biscuity smell of other self tanners. I will be doing a full product review on this soon so I won't blab on too much about how I love it here!

Sinful Colors - Tapping Nails 15ml £2.99
This is such a gorgeous summery orange colour it looks lovely against my skin tone and I like that it has tiny gold flecks in it, it really adds depth to your nails!

Eylure False Lashes £5.35
This brand of false eyelashes are my favourite! They have such a variety of different lashes from natural look to dramatic evening lashes! I use these lashes over and over to, they last quite a while before you have to buy new ones. I always keep a few boxes handy though just in case!

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment 200ml £7.99
I have been using this hair treatment twice and week and I have to say it is doing wonders for my hair! It makes it feel silky soft and smooth! I will be doing a full review on this as lots of you have asked for one so I will get that up asap!

PanOxyl 5% Cream £3.00 approx
As you probably know by now I suffer from terrible skin! I bought this cream around March time but stopped using it after a few weeks because I got impatient waiting for it to work! I have recently started using it again over the past few months and have seen such a huge improvement in my skin!

Thanks for reading!
