Hello lovely readers, in today's post I just wanted to share with you some of the most used products I have been using over the past month. There are only a few products but I've really liked using them all so just wanted to show you all. Most of the products are for the face as I haven't really worn that much makeup on my eyes lately.

Here are my most used products of December 2014...

Rimmel London -- BB Cream in Light - This gives a nice light coverage works well for an everyday

Rimmel London - Fix and Perfect Pro Primer - This helps to smooth out the skin and creates a smooth even canvas for makeup

Maybeline Lumi Under Eye Concealer - Brightens under my eyes and adds a highlighted affect to the skin which I love!

Glossybox Blusher in Rosewood - Adds a bit of colour to the cheeks and works well during the Autumn/Winter months as it is a Berry tone

Model Co Cheek and Lips Tint - This dark red shade adds adds to any neutral look to create a Vampy edge. I love this shade and the colour is really long lasting, but make sure you moisturise your Lips before applying as this can dry them slightly.

And finally.. the Collection Concealer - Simply a must have that is always in my makeup bag. It works great for everyday!

Hope you liked this post :)
Best wishes :)

Hello lovely readers, for today's post I wanted to share with you a gift I was given for Christmas from my family. It's a lovely 3 drawer storage unit that's really sweet and compact and is something I couldn't wait to use as a new storage solution. 

At the moment I am storing my lip products in the drawers but I can think of lot's of other ways to use them, they are really lovely and match the other storage boxes I already have. I'm not really sure where they are from but I'm sure there will be similar storage solutions at stores like Next and TKMaxx.

I used all three of the drawers to organise my lip products - Red Lipsticks - Orange/Pink Lipsticks and then Nude Lipsticks. This way they are easy to find and are in a set place.

Did you get any organising products over the holidays? - I'm still on the look out for a Lipstick holder but love this for storing them in at the moment.

Best wishes :)

 Lovely scented bath time treats... Ted Baker gift set - full of lovely scented goodies, plus the box is so cute. I can't wait to store lots of other lovely things in it.

 This is my first ever Tripod - its great, I love how easy it is to use and it is really compact so I can store it easily and also carry it around with me.

Hello lovely readers, for this post I wanted to share with you some of the Accessories I use to decorate my room, there are only three but they are all really cute and I just wanted to share them with you all. I may do room tour type blog post in the future when it is completely decorated if anyone wants to see an read about that? 

But for now here are a few of my favourite home decorating accessories...

This Candle is so lovely, it smells just like sweets! I often just take the lid off it to fill the room with a sweet fragrance. It was a gift from couple of years ago but the scent is still there, I have never used it as a candle because I like it so much I just wanted to keep it as it is. It's also quite a strong smell so I like it just as it is.

This next item is a sort of DIY project, I got the blue/green frame from TKMaxx and just put in this Postcard of Audrey Hepburn I purchased (I think from Paperchase) a few years ago. I love th frame it has a modern shape but the colour makes it look rustic and traditional - a combination I really love.

And finally... I purchased this Camera Ornament from Next a few years ago, I love Camera's and really wanted a vintage on to put on my shelf as a sort of 'display piece' but I could never find the right one for me, so when I saw this mirrored Ornament I thought it was just so unique that I had to buy it. I think it just adds a bit of character to my room and really helps to portray part of my personality.

Hope you liked this post :)

Which item is your favourite?

Best wishes :)

Hello lovely readers, in this blog post I wanted to share with you some of the products I have been using lately. There are just a few but I thought they all worked really well so couldn't wait to tell you all about them. 
The first product I used up is the Calvin Klein Euphoria perfume - this smells really good and is the second bottle I have finished, I got this last year as gift and have used it lots throughout the time I had it, it's a lovely scent for the autumn and winter months as it has a 'warming' scent that I love to wear during the festive season.

The next product is the Figs and Rouge Hand Cream in Mango - I did like this cream as it did moisturise my hands well, but I wasn't really sure about the scent. I usually love all things Mango but the cream worked really well so I think I would try this again but just with a different fragrance. The small tube is also great for travelling so it's something you can easily carry around in you handbag.

The third product is the Mitchell and Peach Body Cream - This had an amazing scent and really helped to moisturise my skin. I only had a small sample of this but think it would be lovely to buy the full size. It smells that good that you don't really need any Perfume on.

This next product is something I use nearly every day - The Neutrogena Visably Clear 2 in 1 Wash and Mask is something I just love, I really like that it is a 2 in 1 product as this makes it more cost effective and also saves space. I love using this as a face was as it works quickly at removing dirt and Makeup, I also use this occasionally as a mask to clean and unclog pores, I only do this once or twice as week as I have quite sensitive skin. This is just a product I always end up going back to, so it's not a surprise that this is my third bottle. 

LOVE THIS ANANOMICALS FACIAL SPRITZ - This smells just like Lavender and works so well at refreshing my face. I just love this! It's great for a quick refresh and is a product I especially love in the warmer months.

The final product that I have used up is the Vaseline Intensive Care Healthy Hands Stronger Nails Cream - This did make me feel like my Nails were in a better condition and it has a nice subtle fragrance that I quite liked. I used this quite a lot during the day to help add extra moisture to my dry hands. I think this is a good product to keep in your bag or on your desk (that's where I keep mine).

Hope you liked this post :)
What products have you been using recently?

Hello lovely readers, in today's blog post I am going to share some of the ways in organize my stuff on a budget. Having recently been a student I have tried to save money and spend it on what I really needed to buy (travel, books and stationary), so there was never really that much left over for decorating or buying organizers for my room. However, I have found a few inexpensive ways to get organized on a budget, I don't think you need to spend a lot to get organized it's just a matter of find what is right your you and your room decor/personal taste. 
I often like to keep my room quite empty, I don't like to have too much out on display (my makeup and makeup brushes are an exception of course) but I do like to have a few accent accessories out and about to keep the room looking more 'homely'. 
The majority of my things are divided up and put into a few pieces of furniture I purchased from Ikea, like the Malm Drawers and Desk and a few Expedit's which also contain decorative material boxes that are also from Ikea. I often use these to divide up what I own. This way they are relatively well organized and everything is easy to find and access. 

As well as furniture, small boxes (I often use glossy boxes) can be used to divide up your drawers and create individual sections, this is an inexpensive way to divide up what you own. I often use this idea to organize my Socks and Bath/Shower products. There small boxes can also be used to store Stationary, Nail Polish and other small accessories. 
I use an idea similar to this to store my Nail Polishes as I use a Hat Box I was given as a gift to store my Nail Polishes. Using a decorative box will keep your room looking pretty but it will also keep your stuff dust free, which is always good for me.

Similar to other Bloggers, I also use the Ikea Plant Pots to organize my hair and makeup brushes. I think this is a great idea as it keeps them together and easy to grab on the go. 

I also like to use small Jars and tins to organize samples that I have found in Magazines as well as travel size products I have purchased for travelling. I like to put these in a small vintage style tin I have, this way they are hidden away but are still in a place that I can find them.

How do you store your Makeup/Accessories?

Best wishes from Lauren :)
