Keeping cheery through January !

Now we all know money's tight post Christmas don't we ?
And sometimes let's face it we are to ourselves too, Not giving ourselves time to relax and treat ourselves because were trying to build up the money again working recklessly after christmas.

I just like to have little pamper sessions now and then at least once a week I think is about right but if you have enough time why not do it as frequently as you can ? because the happier you are the more motivated you are and we need that in the new year !

The first thing i do is pick out some nail polish to either do in the bath and let it dry while relaxing or do it after.
The next thing I do is get the bath running then remove all my makeup using The simple Kind to skin cleansing lotion and toner with cotton pads.
And then Tah Dahh !! Make up free face :) 
I will then grab a candle this is the soft cotton yankee candle in sampler size. 
 The final thing to do is the most exitign dive in the bath... Well don't literally you might hurt yourself and it wouldn't be very practical ! but soak yourself away to a lovely paradise and maybe even make a bath playlist on your phone Ipod or MP3 player and have a sing song !

Guess who's back yes me !! reasons and my favorite bargain beauty finds !!

Well hey guys I guess !!,
                                     Sorry I haven't posted for a while I have just been swimming in work from college and my part time job !!. I've had posts planned for ages but just had no chances to actually finalise them and post them so I very much apologise for that. Before I go on with myself anyway heres why I'm here to post.

MY BEST BEAUTY BARGAIN FINDS.
 
This is just a quick post to share with you some of my favourite beauty bargain finds !

From left to right: Clean an clear dual action moisturiser, Babyliss hair brush Natural collection pressed powder, NYC lip balm, BarryM gloss,NYC Lip tint, Rimmel wake me up highlighter MUA brow pencil .

All of these products was under £5 yes £5 !! 

First of all the moisturiser is only £3 I think full price and is available from most high street stores like boots,Superdrug but I got mine from asda. It's just a really light refreshing moisturiser that also claims to prevent blemishes and I believe it does.

The Hair brush is a bit of a random one to rave about but I just really like it! it doesn't pull my hair out and seems t always make my hair super soft when I use it. The best part it that is was only £2 if I remember correctly from home bargains. 

The NYC lip stain/tint and balm,the BarryM gloss and the rimmel highlighter are all from the pound shop which I was delighted with when I found these because I didn't own a BarryM gloss before this one and I wanted to save on my mini benefit sunbeam highlighter.

The MUA Brow pencil I hate as that but I like it as a liner for just thickening up my lash line on the lid of my eye.... Does that even make sense ? HAHA ! 

Finally the Natural collection pressed powder I don't like as much as my Stay Matte from Rimmel but I still think that it is a good powder especially if you are on a budget or just getting into makeup But with it retailing at £1.99 and stay matte at £3.99 it doesn't last half as long so you may aswell pay nearly an extra £2 and get a better quality pressed powder that keeps oil at bay all day and lasts for months!

That Is all from me for now I just wanted to post this while I had a spare few moments because goodness knows when my next little break will be !

I hope you all had a wonderful christmas and A Happy New Year and I love you all don't forget to comment below and follow if you like this post for many more like it ! See you all soon.

Empties !

Hello Lovelies!,
                      Well I haven't wrote one of these posts before and seen as I have accumulated a few empty product tubes and bottles I decided to do one as it's seems fun ! So let's crack on.

This is a quick Snap of the products I have used up :)

So from left to right: Natural collection vanilla body wash and a Mango and papaya one, Natural
collection mango and Papaya body lotion, Balance me pure skin face wash, No7 Protect and perfect intense Day Hand Cream, Trevor Sorbie long hair serum for stressed ends, Soft & Gentle Verbena&Water-Lilly Anti-White Marks Deodorant and Clean&Clear Blackhead clearing Cleanser.

So first up is the Natural Collection Body wash and the Mango and Papaya one. I love these body washes they are so nourishing and they also lather up really quickly and you don't need to use a lot of the product for it to do that which it great and may I add they both smell amazing !! I will certainly be re-purchasing these at full size as I got these as a gift with the strawberry one for my birthday at gift size if you get me ! haha.

Natural Collection Mango and Papaya body Lotion, I really liked how creamy and thick this was especially as it is approaching full blown winter weather soon ! They aren't for people who like to moisturise then get dressed straight away as they do take a few minutes to sink into your skin, but I really feel like they moisturise your skin and if used with the wash and also the sprays you can buy along side them, They will keep you smelling fruity all day.

Balance me Pure Skin Face Wash, This is a sample size from GLAMOUR magazine a while back and I think this product is amazing it is very refreshing and lovely to use on your skin in the morning to make you feel more awake and 'With it '. You also do not need to use a lot for it to lather up so therefore makes up for how much it costs for a face wash at full size. I cannot remember the price but I remember looking it up and thinking 'OUCH!' but if I had more money I would consider using this as my daily facial wash as it kept my skin feeling fresh,Clear of spots and smells great !.

No7 Protect and Perfect intense Day Hand Cream, This was also A sample size I received in a No7 gift set last year for Christmas,There isn't really much to say about it I like it but there are Lot's more hand creams out there at a more reasonable price that do the same job.

Trevor Sorbie long hair serum for stressed ends, I saw this a few months back in a little bargain shop near where I live and it just caught my eye as it was tiny and had big bold pink font on the bottle,As I picked it up I read what it was and thought 'Great it's just for me'. As at the time I was having trouble with the ends of my hair breaking. Since using this my hair has been great. I will re purchase this if I see it next time I bob in.

Soft&Gentle Verbena&Water-Lilly Anti-White Marks Deodorant, There isn't really much to say about this either it's a deodorant up there with my fave which is the Nivea Black and white protection one, It smells lovely and actually does what it says and doesn't leave white marks ! because there is nothing worse than wearing a black vest top and having white rings underneath your arms !


Clean&Clear Blackhead clearing Cleanser, I love this product I think I first discovered it last year when I was having a really bad time with Blackheads especially around my nose and I sometimes still do now but not as often but when I do I automatically reach for this and it keeps them at bay and also deep cleanses your skin and helps to draw out any excess dirt or makeup trapped inside your skin which is a contributing factor to the reason we sometimes get blackheads.

So that is all guys ! I really hope you enjoyed reading this let me know what you think in the comments section down below I read and reply to every single one of them !

The Importance of having a positive outlook on life.

Hello Lovelies !,
                       I have done a couple of these 'DEEP' Posts and I always get such great feedback so I thought why not throw another one out there on the world of blogging !

We all have those days where we just think 'Why do I bother?' , 'I'm not good enough!' and 'Why is it always me ?'
 Especially if you are having a tough time at school,Going through a breakup with a Girlfriend or boyfriend (I know when I went through a break up a few months ago I thought all of these things and sometimes still do, I just fight back the tears keep my head high and think 'There are plenty more fish in the sea and It's his loss')

(If you guys would like a post from me on how to deal with the sensitive subject of breakups PLEASE COMMENT BELOW !).

Ooops ! went of the track a bit there silly me but yeah if your having a tough time at school,work or going through any other problems it is easy more than easy in fact to think those things about yourself and become a negative person. But when you become negative it's very difficult to dig yourself back out of that horrid place and sometimes you can make the other people around you that care feel negative and down in the dumps too,and we don't want that do we !?.
So really this post is just getting across the point about the importance of being positive try to take every situation and challenge thrown at you and use it to your advantage,For example if your boss or teacher gives you a harder task to be getting on with they obviously think that you are perfectly capable of doing it. So just crack on and who knows you could get a promotion out of it or get moved up into a higher class :) see there is a positive to almost everything !

Well that's all for now I hope to be doing something interesting for Halloween so then I can blog it for you guys but if not I'm sure I will have something else to keep to you all occupied !
I'm off to grab a hot chocolate now (Yayyy!) and relax reading some of my fave blogs. I hope you liked this and don't forget to comment if you would like a blog post on how to deal with break ups or any other requests you may have for me on the tips of your tongues !
                           Byeee :) SARAH xx

Favorites !

Hello Lovelies !
                      Again I apologise for not posting for a while as I explained in one of my previous posts I have been back at college and its been choca blocka busy !
As it in a kinda in the middle of the month date I'm not going to do a monthly favorites I'm just going to do my fave's in general I hope you enjoy ! :)

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.
 Now I cannot recommend this foundation enough ! I absolutely love love love it ! I'd say it has medium coverage and you build it up I really like the fact it has almost light reflecting pigments in that that just give your skin that youthful dewy glow. I wouldn't recommend it for oily skin as it almost highlights spots. If you do have oily skin although I haven't tried it the new Rimmel stay matte foundation :)

Yankee Candle Samplers:
These are great ! there fab if you are new to Yankee candles or just candles in general like me I was never really bothered about having a candle on the go but when my friend put one of these mini ones in with my birthday gift I became hooked instantly. They are great if you just want to know what a certain scent is like before you buy the bigger one and there just cute aren't they ?!
Here's the link for where you can buy then or just have a browse !
 http://www.hallmark.co.uk/Clean-Cotton-Yankee-Candle-Sampler.aspx

The Body Shop Born lippy balms:
I own the Pink berry one of these and I cannot rave about them enough ! they feel sooo smooth and nourishing on your lips and leave a slight tint too and they smell DIVINE !!!

No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara :
I love this mascara it is amazing and it makes your lashes look so much longer I have received it in sample size in little gift sets twice now and I always forget to purchase it I also really like the wand as it separates your lashes out great and leaves no clumps ! All round a great mascara !
Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturiser:
I'm really bad at moisturising my face 'I know bad smack on hand!' haha but I just really dislike the horrible gooey feeling and having to wait for it to soak into my skin before putting my makeup on but I found this. Yay my new holy grail product! It also prevents spots and blemishes so covers all bases !
Nivea Body Firming Moisturiser :
This moisturiser is great it soaks in so quick which is such a positive and also like all Nivea products smells Amazing ! It also says it firms your skin which I think is true to a certain extent it certainly moisturises your skin and i think it does make your skin feel stronger if you get me haha ! I sound like a bloody nutter strong skin WOO !
Well that's a few of my faves I hope you have enjoyed don't forget to comment and follow me on bloglovin if you like this post ! :)
