With just under a week until I set off on my travels, I thought I would pull together a few of my travel-sized staples for the trip. Cue much cooing over these adorable mini sizes – ahh! I went straight to the Bumble stand in Boots for my haircare minis, I had to pick up the cute Thickening duo for while I’m away. I bought both the Bumble and bumble Thickening Shampoo (£6.50) and the Thickening Conditioner (£7.50), which I haven’t…

I’ve always preferred oversized handbags for carting around my life – until recently, when I finally decided it was time to kick the habit and go for smaller sized body bags that were a little more practical. I like to think of this as a Spring bag – although you will see…

A Post-Weekend Roundup.

18 May, 2015

I mentioned recently that I had been out (as in, in a party club – not just generally outside, promise) twice last week, and boy am I paying for it. I decided to treat my two-day hangover (a real life phenomenon that happens over the age of 23, be prepared) with a few of my favourite products, in order to feel revived and a little more like myself. I started with a new release that I am looooving; Origins Clear…
