The Body Shop chamomile Gentle eye make up remover

I am a huge fan of the Body Shop camomile cleansing oil, and often use that to just remove all my make up. However its always good to have make up remover that you can use with cotton wool in order to correct any make up mishaps, or just to have on hand to remove the majority of your make up before washing your face. I was gifted this at Christmas and have finally got around to talking about it on here, but I wanted to share with you what I think to this make up remover.

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.
