Drugstore Haul

This weekend I decided to run into Superdrug to pick up a new mascara but you know how it is; go in for one thing, come out with 5..

This was on their discounted stand next to the till and normally I'm not a sucker for these things but it was just 70p!  And I am a sucker for fake tan so I couldn't resist the bargain.  I tried a little bit on the back of my hand and it gives a nice glow.  I may do an all over tan this weekend with it.

With the name Peach Club I was expecting it to be, well, peach.  However, it's more of an orangey red, a colour that I love and it has super staying power.  I think they're supposed to be matte although I only swatched it on the back of my hand.  I've heard good things about these though and hear they're coming out with more colours this month.

I can never resist picking up a Barry M nail paint.  They have so many gorgeous colours I feel like a kid in a sweet shop.  I originally wanted Dragon Fruit which I thought was a bright coral colour but when I saw it in the shop it looked more a bubblegum pink.  However, Turbo Charged was the colour I was looking for and I think it looks great on my nails!

Recently I've been having problems with my hair falling out.  I don't know why; maybe it's the change in season or maybe my diet isn't right.  Anyway, I decided to pick up this conditioner which is specifically for 'fragile hair with a tendency to fall' so basically my hair.  I really hope it helps, will report back!

This is the product I went in Superdrug for in the first place.  I've heard so many great things about this mascara and seen so many beauty gurus using it.  I haven't tried it yet but I'm very excited to.  I got the colour black and the brush looks very different to anything I've tried before so I have high hopes!

MUA is a great little makeup brand that I sometimes feel is underrated.  The products are super cheap with a lot of them being just a pound including this blush so I couldn't pass it by.  The colour is so cute, it's like a pale pink but has a really good pay off.  It reminds me of Throbb from Benefit.

Have you tried any of these products?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
