What's In My Handbag?

Hey Little Ones,

Hope you all have had a good weekend?
I've been decorating my room this weekend which is rather exciting!

This week I've decided to do the "What's in my Handbag" tag.
I love these kind of posts as I'm really noisy and love to see what girls carry about with them on a daily basis!
So let's have a look in mine!

I am a handbag fiend so I'm often switching up my bag.
Currently I'm using my Black Mulberry Bayswater, I love this bag as it's classic mulberry and perfect size for going to work everyday!

The first item is the book I'm currently reading, Revenge Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger.
This is the sequel to The Devil Wears Prada, which I loved it's one of my favourite books and films so I snapped this up when returning from Jersey the other weekend. So far it's really good!

Next up is my notebook!
This is from Paperchase and cost £4.99, I was drawn into it automatically by the flower design!
I can't go anywhere without my little notebook, it has all my blogpost ideas as well as my lists of what I need to do at both work and personally.

Anyone who knows me knows how organised I am!
And without this little Filofax I don't know how I would cope in life.
My mum bought this for me last Christmas and it's literally filled to the brim, it's the only way I can keep track of my life and make sure I'm not double booking myself!
And what makes it even more perfect is that it's a perfect handbag size!

With the weather turning colder it's essential to carry some lip balm with you.
My go to at the moment is Maybelline's Baby Lips in hydration.
It instantly revives my lips and I love the old school Chapstick packing it has.

Next up in my bag is Rimmel's Apocolips Lip Lacquer in 101 Celestial.
I use this as my go to lipgloss whilst I'm at work as it lasts for ages as well as being a nice nude pink lip colour.
I'm so surprised with how long the gloss stays on that I'm going to definitely be investing in other colours.

I would not be able to cope without these!
I've realised lately that I am actually so blind and should actually invest in some contact lenses!
These are by Armani from Specsavers.

With the storm that's apparently coming tomorrow it's essential to carry a brolly right now.

Mine is from Primark.
I love the frill trim and the handle on it, perfect for those rainy days!

This is a lifesaver!

Pocket sized Toni & Guy salt spray from Boots!
This comes in handy so much when I feel like my hair just needs a little touch up during the day. 
Whoever invented salt spray is a genius!

Another go to hair product that I always carry is Toni & Guy Extreme Hold Hairspray.
This comes in handy on the days when I have my hair tied up as I have a lot of fly aways so this helps me to stay looking neat and tidy at work!

This is my purse, it's from Topshop.
I've had it for a few years now and I'm currently on the look out for a new one.
However I'm being more picky this time as I want a nice designer now which is proving hard to find!

This is a must have when travelling to and from work on the tube during rush hour.
This is Mitchum's Roll On in Powder Fresh.
I use the spray on version in the mornings however that bottle is too big to carry around on a daily basis. So this fits perfectly.
This deodorant is the best I've ever used, it lasts and also smells amazing!

My work pass!
Without this I can't get into work! 
The picture on this is awful!

And last but not least, my MAC lipstick in Rebel.
I love this colour and it's perfect for the autum season!

And that's what is in my handbag currently!
Let me know what products you take with you on a daily basis as well if any of these have given you some ideas!

Until next time...

Woah I Went To Ibiza

Hello Little Ones,
So nearly a month ago now I jetted off to beautiful Ibiza with one of my chums Emma.
Now this was such a spur of a moment decision for us both to go for some of the closing parties but one we were really looking forward.
This marked the end of summer completely, which I'm still kind of refusing to fully accept right now.
Nothing better than a cheeky vino on the way to the airport.
Now Ibiza is renowed for being a party island.
This couldn't be more true.
From the moment we arrived at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel to the moment we left,
it was non stop partying.
Now I'm not going to bore you all with details of we did this, we went here etc.
Cause lets face it I can't remember too much!
So I'm just going to give you a few of my favourite photos from the holiday and little caption.

Super excited for Ocean Beach Club.

And that's a selection of my favourite photos from my time in Ibiza.
It's such a beautiful crazy place and I can't wait for the next time I go back.
I will definately be trying to go to more of the super clubs as well as Zoo Project;
which we missed as we didn't arrive until Saturday evening.
But I still had the most amazing time ever!
Until next time...

Soap & Glory - Review

Hello Little Ones,

I'm back!
And once again apologies for not posting in so long! 

So today's post is all about the wonderful Soap & Glory!
Now I have quite a few of their products and thought why not do a review of my favourites!

First up is the Sugar Crush Body Buttercream.
I've never been really big on moisturising until I was introduced to this Soap & Glory one. From its sweet lime smell to how easily it goes on, I can't fault it at all! The front on the packaging says its "moisture-extreme re-energizing" and it most definitely is! Specially after using it both Ibiza and Malia after a hard day tanning I found that this has really helped keep my tan longer and stopped any peeling! If you are wanting a new moisturiser then I would look no further as it's good quality at a reasonable price!

Oh but you want a body wash to go with the moisturiser? Well you are in luck little ones!
Yes they also do a body was in the same Sugar Crush range!
Once again the smell is delicious, whenever I'm in the shower and use this my mood is instantly lifted. Specially when I use the moisturiser after. 
The packaging states "Lather a small amount of Sugar Crush Body Wash..." And I couldn't agree more. This body wash is extremely foamy, a small amount goes a long way meaning you do feel extra clean after using it!
I think the smell of both the above products are going to remind me of this summer so much!

This is Soap & Glory's Slimwear. What does that do, I hear you all asking? Well according to the products blurb it states
"An amazing puff-draining peptide balm that firms, contours, smoothes and reduces the appearance of cellulite"
Basically you rub the cream into your thigh area once in the morning and once in the evening and it will help reduce your cellulite and firm them up! However it does state that you still need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise.
Now I've only used this a few times during the summer when my legs were out everyday, but I did notice a slight improvement in the cellulite appearance around my thighs as well as really enjoying the peppermint smell of the cream. For something I purchased on the clear out shelf in Boots I can't complain, however maybe next summer I'll be able to use it a bit more!

I want to thank Lexi at Introducing Lexi for introducing me to the above product!
It's my new skin care saviour!
This is The Ultimelt.
A deep purifying hot cloth cleanser.
Now I've only used this three times since I purchased it a week ago and the difference in my skin is amazing. As soon as you place the hot cloth (which is included) on your face you can instantly see and feel how smooth and clean your face is. 
Not only this but the smell of the cream is really invigorating. It included sweet almond, orange and lavender oils.
My favorite time to do this is on a Sunday evening and give my face a proper deep facial with this product by massaging it into my skin for at least 3 mins. 
As the box says "Who needs a facial when you can stay at home..." 
And I couldn't agree more!

Last but not least is one of Soap & Glory's make up products.
Now I've never tried any of their make up products before but Boots were having a buy one get one half price offer on all make up and beauty and I was in desperate need for a mid price range price concealer as my usual Benefit Boi-ing concealer was being scrapped around the pan to get the crumbs out of it. 
Now I was drawn into this concealer as it is a three piece camouflage concealer kit.
Step one (on the left) is the under eye brightening concealer. So just a small dab of this under both eyes to help hide any dark circles or redness. I've tried this once but as I usually use Rimmel's wake me up concealer for this area as I find it brightens the under eye area a lot better.
Step two (on the right) is the superwear face concealer. This is basically for blemishes and any redness on other areas of your face that you want to cover up. This goes on really nicely and blends in really well to help cover up and spots and blemishes, a bonus when you get breakouts like me.
But what I like most about this product is Step Three, concealer sealing powder. You just apply this over the areas you placed the other two concealers and this helps keep it in pace all day. Which is exactly what you want when it comes to hiding any blemishes and dark circles.

I also love this product as it's a handy size, perfect for your handbag in case you need any touch ups!

And that's the review of all my Soap & Glory products that I love!
Let me know what your faves are and if you're going to try any of the products I've reviewed. 

Until next time...
