Superdrug Haul

Every now and again I like to check out the popular products in the drugstore and do a little haul.  Super drug is definitely my favourite drugstore because the brand itself are activists against animal cruelty and therefore I know that anything I buy from them will not be tested on animals.

I only went in for a mascara..

This was the main reason for my trip.  I tend to buy a new mascara every 3 months or so and I generally check out the reviews beforehand as I like to try something I haven't tried before even if I really love one I've used previously.  This time around I went for the Miss Sporty Pump Up Booster mascara as it had high reviews on the website.  The brush is a funny shape but looks like it will give lots of volume.

The other product I wanted to get was a hydrating mist.  I'm currently using the Mario Badescu rose water one every morning which I love but I'm nearly out so thought I'd give a drugstore one a go.  I really love the vitamin e range as it's targeted at dry skin like mine.  I tested some of my face when I got home and it feels nice but slightly oilier than the Mario Badescu one.

Another favourite brand of mine is Nip + Fab as they are also cruelty free.  Superdrug often has offers on this brand as they can be slightly more expensive than the average drugstore products.  The dragon's blood shots were half price so I thought I would see what the hype was about.  It contains hyaluronic acid which is supposed to be really hydrating and anti-ageing!

Lastly I picked up some face masks as I try to do one once a week.  They're only 99p and are currently doing 342.  I got the dead sea purifying mask which now I realise is for oily skin but I'll give it a go, I got an exfoliating one and a cocktail peel-off one for fun :)

Have you purchased anything from the drugstore lately?

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
