WHATS IN MY BAG? / A TYPICAL DAY



Hi.

I don't know about you but i love to have a good nose around other people's handbags so here's mine..

I got this handbag from River Island at a reasonable price of £25. I love this bag because it's an average size but fits so much in it. Just like Mary Poppins! I can carry an A4 notebook/folder if i place it sideways which is handy for an schoolwork or work stuff and there's pockets on the inside so i can carry any makeup or delicate items and they won't break or spill into the whole bag.


First things first, these are normally the things that i'll throw into my handbag on a daily basis. My essentials. My purse is also from River Island and i got this at a steal for £10. Anyone who shops in River Island knows that not many of their purses are that cheap. Not only is it an amazing colour, it holds everything or maybe a bit too much. I live in Scotland so carrying an umbrella is vital but recently i've started carrying sunglasses as the sun is shining on the odd day. Other things i carry are my Tangle Teezer from Boots, Soap and Glory Hand Food, a £1 Backcombing Brush from Primark and a drink whether that is water or juice. Today it was a half drunk Irn Bru. A Scottish delicacy! I like to carry bits of makeup with me just so i can top up during the day if anything budges on my face such as my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and Baby Lips in "Fresh Mint", Soap and Glory Lipstick in "Naked Beige", Natural Collection Loose Powder and a Real Techniques Contour Brush to apply the powder.

Other items i like to have with me when i venture into the fresh air are my iPhone 5S and earphones so i can listen to my music but usually i keep them in my pocket or in my hand.

LOCH NESS TRIP

Hi.

Last week, me and some of the family hopped in the car and took a short road trip up to Loch Ness for a boat ride across the Loch to Urquhart Castle and back. It was my first time on a boat and on the Loch and all i can say is it was beautiful. I really underestimated how massive Loch Ness is but the surrounding scenery is a dream for any photographer. I highly recommend a trip up there as it is one you'll remember.

THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E AQUA BOOST SORBET REVIEW



Hi.

One of the latest launches from The Body Shop has been a new sorbet like moisturiser for the summer weather. This post is going to be what i think of it and how my skin has coped with this very lightweight cream.

First off, the texture of this moisturiser is like no other. It feels very matt which is good for all you people with combination to oily skin as it will reduce the oil residue on the surface of your skin. It is perfect if you want something a tad lighter for the hot summer weather. When placed upon your skin, the sorbet dissolves instantly to something that is highly unoticable on your skin when finished applying. In my opinion and as a self confessed The Body Shop addict, i feel that this launch has been one of the best that they have done. After using this, my skin feels super hydrated yet not feeling that thick layer of moisturiser still on your skin. It is great! Also, the cooling sensation when applied is marvellous and very refreshing on an early morning rise. The only negative i have with this product is the glass packaging but i am being very picky on this note, i just feel that it is very heavy and i'm kind of scared i am going to smash it.

This product retails at £12 at any local store which is a very reasonable price for a good moisturiser.

A LITTLE PLAYLIST // JULY

Hi.

Recently i've been trying to think of ideas for my posts on this blog. I started browsing on other blogs that i read daily and i saw that Marcus Butler has a "series" thing going called "Sunday Sounds" where each Sunday he recommends some music that he has been listening to. I really liked this concept so i thought that i could base my first idea around this. Rather than every week, i am going to post this every month so it will be like "a little playlist". Hope you like this, if so (or not) let me know any feedback you may have for me in the comments.

Lewis Watson - Stay

Josh Record - Bones

Sia - Elastic Heart

Paolo Nutini - One Day

Charlie XCX - Boom Clap

Twin Atlantic - I Am an Animal
