Weekend Wishlist ♥

Hey beauts,

So since I've been introduced to Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and my skin is looking as good as ever, I thought I'd have a little nose around at some other products to maintain it while it's looking good at the moment. Here are some products I've got my eye on to snap up in the next month or so, whenever my bank account will allow it really!

 a) Elemis Balancing Lavender Oil - £19.40 (feelunique). b) Origins Ginzing Eye cream - £21.00. c) Decleor   Hydra Floral Anti-Pollution Moisturising Mask - £22.25 (feelunique). d) Elemis SOS Emergency Cream - £49.10 (feelunique) e) Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion- £10.25

I've heard such great things about the Elemis toner so that's high up on my list for when my skin needs a change from my C&P and now that my Clinique eye cream is all gone, I need something to brighten my eyes and make me look alive in the mornings after a late night and this looks like the perfect product for that! The Liz Earle is for the same purpose, and I've heard such great reviews of it from Millie at Lolainthelounge, so that definitely needs trying out! The other two products are really for days when my skin isn't great and needs a boost, and I always find a mask good for extra cleansing and hydration, so the Decleor one will be perfect, as it was recently used on me during a facial and my skin felt amazing! The Elemis emergency cream will probably have to wait the longest until it's in my collection as it's the most expensive and the others are more priorities but it promises such good things so hopefully I'll find some pennies somewhere and treat myself eventually!

Have you ever tried any of these products and which do you think are the ones I really need to buy first?

Liz Earle Energising Hip and Thigh Gel ♥

Hey girls, I'm finally back in business, as my dissertation has been handed in :D, I feel so relieved, I actually might have a life again soon (after my exams anyway, which I should be revising for at the moment). So I quickly just wanted to write a little something about my new Liz Earle product.

After hearing lots of amazing things about the C&P I took the plunge and got a try-me kit, which I loved (I can definitely see what all the hype is about) so I then went on to buy the full sized kit. I got the April deal which was all the C&P goodies but with this lovely hip and thigh gel thrown in - full size as well, might I add - amazing for a freebie! This gel is supposed to tone, firm and soften skin when massaged into skin daily. Naturally as soon as I got it tried a bit out on my hand to see what it felt like, and the smell hit me before anything, it's smells SO fresh and reminded me a little bit of that spa smell and all their natural products, first brownie point scored right there!

I then tried it on my body after showering and used it on my thighs, hips and also my tummy and upper arms as it says it's recommended for those areas, and  I'm always looking for a bit of toning and firming on my arms. I loved it as soon as I tried it! It left my skin feeling so refreshed and smelling great. As I'm a serious moisturiser addict, I was a bit cautious about it at first, worrying that it would dry my skin out, but it hasn't and has left my skin feeling supple and smooth. The only thing is, I wouldn't use this if I was in a hurry to get dressed as, being a gel it leaves the skin feeling a bit sticky if you put quite a lot on and don't have time to massage it in properly, but after just a few uses, I've really noticed my skin feeling more supple and definitely feeling a lot softer. All in all, a lovely product, which I'd certainly buy again after this it's ran out and would recommend it to anyone who needs a bit of skin lovin' before getting into a bikini for summer!

Hip and Thigh gel - £17.75 for 150ml 

Have you ever tried this? What did you think?

Mythic Oil ♥

Hey lovelies, this is just a little post about a beauty of a hair-rescue remedy! I know MoroccanOil is a hard product to beat in the hair treatment stakes but this oil really is a strong contender. Enriched with avocado and grape seed oil, Mythic Oil is designed to be a nourishing product for all hair types and it really does what it says on the tin! After all the bleach, heat and backcombing my hair can handle it really deserves a splash of moisture and this oil really gives it what it needs. After applying it to damp hair and blow drying, my hair feels instantly smoother and rather than any split ends being horribly obvious and making my hair look dry and damaged, my hair feels nourished and supple rather than weak and life-less, without looking greasy from the oil at all.

I know the Moroccanoil does all of this too but retailing at around £28 for 100ml the Mythic Oil is certainly a go to product as a cheaper alternative, at around £12 for 125ml. Like Moroccanoil you don't need to use a lot so it lasts a long time so you do get a lot for your money. I actually got both oils as freebies off my hairdresser so was lucky enough to try both out and really value them both as great hair treatments because they really are 'hair-saviours' but I know that if I needed to save the pennies, a cheaper hair remedy is out there for me!

Have you ever tried the Mythic Oil and if so, what did you think?

OOTD: Sunday sunshine ♥

Hey lovelies,

Cheeky little outfit post for you all...this is the outfit I wore for today for a little early-easter family gathering. I wanted to be casual and summery and I got this lovely top and these jeans on my Meadowhall shopping trip I talked about here. I love the colour of these jeans as they're a lilacy-blue colour so are great for summer when it's not quite hot enough for shorts or a skirt. I think the top is really pretty and girly with its flower print too and it's little slit at the back, ideal for the look I was going for today.

*My effort to show the slit at the back of the top*

Top: Bank, Jeans: Topshop Baxter Jeans, Bag: Mark B, Watch: Guess

What have you all done with your weekends? and What do you think of my sunday outfit?

P.S the lovely Holly, from Miss Holly blog is advertising my blog on hers this month so make sure you go and check out her great blog here! :)
