beauty haul #1


Since we've bought our own home beauty items seem to have gone to the bottom of my list of things to purchase. I just tend to buy the essentials when I need them. We've had a few big bills during the first few months whilst we've been figuring it all out, then I've been prioritising buying things for the house first and foremost, then clothes, then beauty. A couple of weeks back though I decided it was time for a mini splurge and these are the things that ended up in my basket:

Got2b Xpress Dry Styling Spray - I've never tried anything from Schwarzkopf's got2b range before but this little bottle caught my eye as I was browsing through the aisles in good old Boots. I'm someone who uses my hair dryer a lot (I can feel you all judging me) so anything that can help me cut down the time that I'm using it is all good. After trying this a couple of times I have mixed feelings about it, but I don't want to say too much because I'm planning a proper review in the future.

Nivea Post Shave Balm - So many bloggers seem to rave about this stuff being an amazing primer so when I saw it on offer for less than half price in Wilko I thought it was the perfect opportunity to nab it.

Lee Stafford Heat Protection Mist - If there's a product I'm forever changing it's heat protecting spray. I've just never really found one that I thought was doing something really good for my hair. After I've finished using this one I'll still be on the look out to be honest. It's not bad by any means but it's not wow either. Then again maybe heat protecting spray just isn't something that can be wow?

Barry M Mani Mask in Bashful - Another product that caught my eye whilst browsing Boots was this new release from Barry M. The mani masks are formulated to camouflage, colour and condition your nails all in one. There are two shades out and I opted for Bashful which is a lovely baby pink colour.

Sleek Lip VIP Lipstick in Private Booth - I've seen a few people mention these lipsticks from Sleek now and wanted to give one a try. I instantly fell in love with the shade Private Booth which is the perfect classic nude. Again, this is something I'll be writing a full review on soon.

Have you purchased any new beauty products lately?

wishlist #5 - oliver bonas home

Oliver Bonas
1. Chevron Throw
2. Mint Lamp
3. Coco Chair
4. Jade Grid Shelf
5. Copper Phone
6. Woven Stripe Cushion
7. Bertie Desk

Clearly I've been living under a rock for most of my life because I'd not really heard of Oliver Bonas until recently. I can't even remember how I actually did discover them (probably a tweet or something knowing me) but I'm so glad that I did because it turns out they basically sell everything that would go in my dream house! It's all just so darn dreamy. *Insert heart eyes emoji here.*

Anyway, the above little selection are what I eventually whittled down to my favourite picks. I also realised afterwards that nearly everything is either grey, mint or copper. Oops. They're just such pretty colours though so I can't help it. I can't wait to hopefully make a few purchases in the near future.

Where are your favourite places to shop for your home?
