Apologies this is up so late in to April, you kinda lose track of the date when on school holidays, right?

Trevor Sorbie Beautifully Straight Conditioner & Smoothing Balm
Not gonna lie I'm absolutley terrible for looking after my hair. Pretty much everything bad you could do to your hair, well I've done it. Recently I've been obsessed with Trevor Sorbie's 'Beautifully Straight' line, weird because I've got wavy hair yes. I find its actually pretty good for wavy hair, stops it going frizzy! Anyway, back on topic! I use the conditioner 2-3 times a week on the bottom half of my hair after using DGJ 'Hangover Hair Shampoo' which I find work really well together. After hair drying I use the smoothing balm on the fiddly front bits of my hair around my face (if you've seen any of my post with my hair out you'll know which bits I mean). It just stops them from splitting, which if you have a centre part you'll know is probably the most irritating thing EVER!

Hollister 'Crescent Bay' Body Spray
I appreciate that theres not too much you can say about fragrance on a blog, purely because it's so hard to describe. This smells exactly like watermelon and poppy but it does have quite a lot of alcohol in it. Its very very strong for a body mist but the upside of that is that it lasts a long time. A scent so strong does take a bit of getting used to though. Reminds me almost of the first few times I wore Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb, I had like one constant headache!

Sleek Blush By 3 Palette in 'Lace'
I feel like I've babbled on so much about this. Basically its an orange-toned blush palette. The formula's good, pigmentation is good and they're not expensive at all! My only gripe is the shades as they are pretty bright, it's easy to make yourself look quite clown-like. Probably one for the light handed amongst us.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter
I've gone a bit crazy for Soap & Glory at the minute, I know they're insanely popular with bloggers. For a long time I hated the scent but recently I've kinda been converted. I love that the scent stays around for hours after you apply this. In terms of what its supposed to do: well, its not very good. I've definitely had better moisturisers and yet regardless, I'm probably gonna go and buy the whole Soap & Glory line following this post.

Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush
When I first got the Real Techniques Starter Kit For Eyes, I was pretty unsure what to use this brush for. Its suggested you use as an eyeshadow brush although to be honest its pretty awful at picking up a lot of colour. After a while I figured its actually pretty nice with powder highlights purely because it's not very good at picking up product, nobody wants an overly-shimmered face, right? It's not too dense and is the perfect size for highlighting with precision in areas like the nose, brow bone ect.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
I'm not a massive foundation wearer, usually I stick to Bare Minerals yet I managed to convince myself to buy this, you know how beauty bloggers do. I like that its not really heavy coverage and isn't really thick, it means its really easy to work with and is good for everyday wear. It's not super matte or dewy, you can kinda create any look you want with it, which is something you cant ever achieve with mineral makeup.

Yankee Candle 'Sweet Pea'
This is really unusual for a beauty blog I do realise but I had to post about the 'Sweet Pea' scent by Yankee Candle. Yankee Candles are obviously really really popular, especially amongst bloggers and so naturally I own about 50. 'Sweet Pea' has quickly become one of my favourites, I definitely need to find the large jars of these, I had to buy lots of tarts as I couldn't find the right size jar at the time. Once again, fragrance is really hard to describe, basically its just a sweet floral scent that isn't too strong but is definitely noticeable.
