Something I honestly cannot live without is a daily moisturiser with SPF. Keep in mind that I have oily/combination skin when reading my reviews, here's what I'm currently using:

I've been tagged by the lovely Laura from CakingItOn to do this 'Blogger' tag, 'hope you enjoy! [Also, I've scattered some pics from my trip to Hampton Court Palace this summer as I wanted to spruce up this post and not have it be just text! ^^]

This post is about some ah-mazing natural beauty products I found while strolling through Camden's market stalls last month. I've waited a while to blog about them as I wanted to give them a fair run before posting my thoughts.

I had been after this mascara ever since I saw its ads in Allure mag over a year ago! I was sold by the font of they used on 'Lots of Lashes' in that über cute 'hand-drawn' heart!
The Maybelline Great Lash mascara definitely has cult status, but I never liked it both times I tried it, so when I saw they came out with this new version I just couldn't resist...

The nailpolish I have on today was another impulse buy that I snatched up 5 minutes before Boots closed for the day! It's a particular shade of blue that has taken me ages to find and I'm so glad I finally did.
Light blue nails were definitely on trend this past spring and as I have quite tanned hands, it was hard to find a shade that didn't wash my skin out. Queue Essie's Lapiz of Luxury <3

I had been after Revlon’s Buttercup nailpolish for a couple of months now, ever since I saw Amarixe’s NOTD post featuring it. While Boots stock the range online, I didn’t want to purchase it without seeing it in the flesh first. Last week when I was noseying around the Model’s Own stand looking for the shade Utopia, I came across this little gem, Lemon Meringue.

I started using Avene products last year, beginning with the Eau Thermale Spring Water spray. Earlier this year, Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on premium skincare and I had been on the hunt for some new skin goodies, so I went for it! I bought the Rich Compensating Cream, the Soothing Eye Contour Cream, and the Soothing Hydrating Serum. Overall I would say that I am quite impressed with the brand, especially at their price point. The French are known for being masters of skincare and Avene specialise in catering to sensitive skin, which means their products are almost always gentle. All of these products are, of course, paraben-free.

If you read my Beauty Epiphany post from a few weeks back, you will know that I'm only using 1-2 mascaras at a time nowadays! To find out why, have a quick read: LINK!
Here are the mascaras I've been using recently, Rimmel's Lash Accelerator and Maybelline's Full 'N Soft waterproof mascara.

This is going to be a super quick blogpost following the one I put up earlier today, Disappointing Products, !LINK!.
This post is basically an empties post - except that the products aren't empty. I'm throwing them out because they were plain old disappointing in one way or another, and I simply don't want them taking up room in my drawers anymore. Let's get started!

I've been watching MissJenFabulous' lovely nail tutorials for ages now, and this week I finally worked up the courage to give one a go!

Every girl needs at least one shade of red in her arsenal, no? I once read that it was a tradition in France to buy a Chanel Rouge Creme Lipstick N°5 Red for a newborn baby girl. I absolutely love that! Oozing glamour from day one. This blogpost will be based around the pictures with minimal words, as they speak for themselves. Enjoy!

I was at the hairdressers today, trading in my red/plummy-with-bright-violet hair for warm brown with blonde ends raked through, and decided to go on Bloglovin' while the bleach worked it's magic.

Wowza June has flown by, and was possibly the best month ever as I went to my first camping festival: Isle of Wight!!! I saw one of my favourite bands of all time: Pearl Jam <3 Anyhoo, amidst the excitement, dancing and awesome music I misplaced a staple product: my Topshop Saddle pencil liner.

I have a WHOLE lot of products this time and I'm so glad to be posting this and finally throwing them away. That's mostly because I'm chucking away some items which did NOT work for me and are just a waste of space now. Some of them I've blogged about in the past and I will link the blogposts to said products.

I bought MAC's Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 a year ago, and after months in the back of my drawer I whipped it out last week as summer is upon us. My pretty much daily use of the Garnier BB cream has made this product really stand out because it's nowhere near as greasy and gives a lot more coverage! I love it.

This is my stash of nude and pink fuss-free everyday lip products to slap on during work. After all it's a full 11 hours of the day (including commute) so it's good to have options!

This post is a redemption post for She Said Beauty. I really disliked last month's box and in a nutshell, described it as 'meh'.

This post will just be an excited rant about my new beloved items! A first for me is buying the full-size of a sample I'd gotten in a beauty box a few months ago, wanna know what it is?
