Things I have done that I am proud of

I have a really bad habit of putting myself down and not recognising anything I do as success, as I just don't ever let myself be proud of myself. One of the weirdest and craziest things is that most of the things mentioned in this post feature in a post I have written and in my drafts called 'why every success feels like a failure' I have no idea if that will ever see the light of day, but believe me its there. I decided, I will keep that post, but I wanted to write a positive post about my achievements and things I would have had on a bucket list but never really did as I didn't have a bucket list really. I feel like I should be more positive and appreciate myself a little bit more than I usually do!

A designer dilemma

I am quite a designer lover, from shoes to bags to scarves and anything I see I fancy. By that I mean, lets save up and treat myself once in a while! I do love to have a really good browse on all the sites and see whats new and add things to my ever growing wishlist as we all know I can spend money quicker than I could ever earn it if I wasn't quite so sensible! But I go through phases where I contemplate selling some of the designer bits I own, and then never really know if I can part with them!

Batiste floral dry shampoo

While I do like to keep my hair clean and fresh, I am never without a can of dry shampoo, and while I am not overly fussy on which I get I seem to gravitate to Batiste when I see it on offer and I always pick out a different scent to shake it up, I recently picked up the floral dry shampoo as I thought the scent would be perfect for summer. I use dry shampoo to extend the time between washing, as a refresh when going to the gym to keep my hair fresh while at the gym, or for volume.

Miss Patisserie colour fest bath bomb

When I saw that Boots were selling the Miss Patisserie collection which has bath bombs, bath melts and other bath delights I decided I needed to give them a go. We all know how I feel about Lush and the way they are in the bath and I am always up for a nice hot bath to wash any worries away. I was drawn to the white bath bomb with tiny bits of colour dotted on the top with the name 'colourfest' this seemed unusual for such a plain looking bath bomb, so I knew it had to be on the list to see what it did in the bath, it had to be interesting right?

L'Oreal Colourista hair dyes

I am a serial offender in the hair dye department, any colour you can name my hair has been, from the natural blonde I was as a kid right through to a deep black, and every shade of the rainbow you can dream of. I now work in a job where my hair needs to be more natural and normal, and I fully appreciate that, I thought my cravings for the bright hair had long passed since leaving uni and going into a job. Oh they had not. I am lucky in the fact I have a few weeks off over the summer and I decided I would go all out with my hair and just go crazy! So when I saw the Colourista dyes on offer I decided I had nothing to loose if I tried them and gave them a go! lets see how I got on.

Kiehls Ultra facial cream

Testing out beauty samples is one of my favourite things to do, it is the perfect way to get a feel for a product without having to commit to a full size in case you don't like it. I got a goody bag from a Kiehls event and I am still working my way through the samples, not wanting to share too many to close together, so I thought it was about time I reviewed the Ultra facial cream as I was a little bored of my usual moisturiser and fancied a mini change. I love the little sachets for a change up in my routine when I feel I am stuck in a rut, but it gave me the perfect chance to test out this moisturiser.

QVS flat top blush brush

I am a lover of the Real Techniques brushes and I have a lot of them. The issue with this is that they work so well I don't feel I need to go out and try more things. When I got this QVS flat top blush brush in a goody bag from an Intu Victoria centre event I went to, and I was so excited to try it. I usually opt for fluffy blush brushes and was a little intimidated by the flat top on this, but I wanted to give it a good test and share it with you to see how I got on with it.
