Last Minute Beauty Buys

This Monday I was out shopping with my Mum and Brother and while they were in JD while Callum tried on some shoes, I looked at my phone and realised I still had 10 minutes before Superdrug shut. So, I scooted on over and by the time I got there I had 5 minutes until closing time.

The plan was to get a new pressed powder, but come on, I don't think it's possible to walk into a drugstore and come out with only the thing you actually went in there for in the first place...

Naturally, the first thing that caught my eye was the Fudge Urban section. I've been wanting the (delicious smelling) hairspray for a while now and I'm so glad Fudge is finally getting stocked all over the UK!

I also decided to invest in the dry shampoo as I do love a good dry shampoo, they are lifesavers! This Fudge product also smells pretty yummy and now that I've used it for a few days I can tell you that it's a fab product. It definitely does the job, leaves your hair smelling so good you could eat it and it also doesn't leave white patches (like the Batiste one sometimes can).

I wasn't expecting any less from these Fudge items though, they've had great reviews and I haven't found a fault with any of their products yet. I even love the packaging.

Something else that seems to have had lots of great reviews, Lauren's Way tan. For those of you who don't know this is 'TOWIE' star Lauren Goodger's fake tan range. I've used the mousse before and loved it so I have high hopes for this too! The only thing that did disappoint me was the packaging which looks a little cheap in person.

The thing I actually went in for, Rimmel London's Stay Matte Pressed Powder. I've been using this stuff longer than I can remember!

Another staple piece in my make up bag - Soap & Glory's 'Solar Powder'. This bronzer has both a lighter and darker shade in one. I find this handy as I'm a fake tanner. 

I'd seen Zoe Sugg (Zoella) and Tanya Burr use something similar to this once in a vlog and had been on the hunt for the product ever since. I finally found it in Boots lately but it's about £10 for a pack whereas this dupe was about £1.50 if I remember rightly, bargain! 

It also left my skin feeling super smooth right up until the next day, which I loved as I think the effects of some face masks don't normally last the night.

This lip balm is hands down the best one I've used so far, it's one of those lip balms that gives you a slight tingling sensation when applied and I've found that usually means it's doing the trick. It's also made of 100% natural ingredients, what's not too love! 

It's also not pricey and lasts for ages, I'm only having to replace mine as one of my Dad's kittens decided my last one looked like a good toy and I haven't seen it since.

I seem to have done quite well for a 5 minute spree! I really enjoyed doing this post as I love anything beauty and it also gave me the chance to dust off my photography skills.

I hope you enjoyed reading it and let me know in the comments if you love any of these products too!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

People kept telling me that work will mess up my body clock and I can kiss goodbye to my usual weekend 11:30am lie-ins, and I didn't believe them until today. I naturally woke up at half 9 this morning and no matter how hard I tried I could not get back to sleep. However, besides missing out on my beloved lie-in, I've had a pretty nice Sunday.

I normally go for a pretty natural make-up look on sunday's, nice and fresh faced.


Today I used Rimmel London Lasting Finish foundation (Ivory), Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder (003 Peach Glow), Rimmel London 'Brow This Way' palette (Medium Brown 002) (Medium) and Maybeline Rocket Volum' Mascara.

After getting ready I went out for sunday lunch with some family (I didn't take a picture but we all know what a sunday lunch looks like, right?) and after that we ventured to my Dad's girlfriend's Mum's Farm (that sounded a bit complicated!). There she gave us a tour and let us see some of the lambs.


Here are two with their Mum.


This little cutie was having a sleep until we disturbed him.


I even had the chance to hold one. I thought it would wriggle and start kicking but it actually calmly sat in my arms and even started nuzzling into my neck at one point, so cute!

And then later on in the day I went to the cinemas with one of my best friends.

Of course, we got the large popcorn! 

We went to see Cinderella and I have to say it was every bit as magical as I could of hoped for. It also made me wish I was a princess.

All in all my Sunday has been a pretty great one and I will be going to sleep with a smile on my face.

I hope you all had a great Sunday too!
