Hello my lovelies! I hope you’re all enjoying this fantastic weather we have been having! With Summer just around the corner, I wanted to update my beauty collection and share with you all these amazing brands I’ve discovered. Some of these you have probably heard of and some might be new to you, but I highly recommend adding some of these high-quality products to your collection.
These make-up bags are super cute and I love the quirky slogans. These pretty zip-up bags are perfect for storing all your favorite products in. If you are going away this summer then I highly recommend taking one of these with you. If you’re a bit of a make-up addict like me, then you might need two! But the best thing is they are only £2. so no need to break the bank.

So.. I found the perfect sexy sandals for summer, but when I tried them on I realized my poor feet didn’t look too sexy at all. Being a big fan of Scholl for many years, it was obvious I was going to turn to them to give my feet the TLC they deserved. The Scholl Wet & Dry got rid of all the nasty hard skin that had built up over the winter months, and it left my feet feeling and looking sexy and ready for summer. The best bit about this one is that it’s waterproof so you can give your feet a nice long soak in the bath and then let the clever device work its magic!

Ted Baker has got to be one of my favorite brands and I’m loving this new range. The mini beauty bag is perfect for Summer holidays and weekends away. The beautifully designed bag includes a body lotion, a body spray and a fruity lip balm. I love the cute bow and the gold letter T on the zip.
Another addition to the new Ted Baker range is Amazing Grace. This very pretty floral scent is uplifting and rejuvenating. a true summer scent. The 10ml bottle is the perfect size to fit in your handbag and freshen up on those hot, sunny days. You can buy these gorgeous products and others from the stunning range at: www.boots.com
A new season a new handbag! As soon as I saw this bag I instantly fell in love with it. When it comes to handbags, only the best quality will do. This beautiful bag is very classy and looks amazing with a summer dress and a pair of pink, heeled sandals. Armani are such a well-known high-quality brand and this elegant handbag has got to be one of my favorites from their range. Make a statement this summer with this luxurious handbag.

I’m a big fan of epilating, it’s just as practical, quick and easy as shaving, but it keeps you fuzz-free for a lot longer. Yes, it is painful to start with, but stick with it! I’ve noticed after two years of epilating, I hardly get any hair growing on my legs anymore. The BrAun Silk Epil 9 is a mush have if you want your legs to look summer ready. It comes with six different attachments including the epilator, a shaver, trimmer cap, exfoliation brush head, Facial cap, skin contact cap. This clever device will leave your legs super smooth for weeks!

Seventeen is the first brand of make up I remember buying when I was a teenager and it has only got better over the years. I got quite a haul from Seventeen this year and I am loving the quality of the products. With many new make up brands hitting the high streets, I still like to use the trusted brands I’m familiar with.
In this haul I got :
The Cheek Stamp Blush –This is super cute and even has a little mirror, I really love the whole design of this one.
Brow’s That! Brow Kit- This palette is perfect for creating flawless brows.
All Out Pout Lip Palette Fancy Free- Beautiful colours to make your lips stand out.
Skin Wow Primer- This primer is amazing, not only does it leave your skin super soft but it also gives it a gorgeous glow.
Falsifeye HD Mascara- The mascara really is HD. It will leave you looking and feeling like a movie star!
Stay Pout Lipstick- This bright red lippy kind of reminds me of Marilyn Monroe. It really makes your lips stand out and look fantastic.

If you’re a Ben & Jerry’s fan like me then you will love these fun lip balms. Not only do they smell just like the famous ice-cream, but they leave your lips super soft and prevent them from drying out in the heat. You can find these fun lip balms at www.ebay.co.uk
This cooling moisturiser is perfect to use after you have been in the sun, it works instantly, absorbing into the skin leaving it silky smooth. Aveeno is definitely a beauty bag must-have, I use this on my face before applying my make up and my foundation simply glides on and my skin looks radiant.

I’ve become quite a big fan of Lord & Berry over the last few months, I first tried their range back in march and they quickly became a regular addition to my make-up collection. When you watch the contouring videos on You Tube, they all make it look really easy. In reality, contouring and blending is kind of an art and it takes a while to learn the tricks and create the perfect look. In this Lord & Berry palette, they have added a step by step guide on how and where to apply the different shades to compliment your skin tone. It really is worth it once you get the hang of it. And it’s always fun playing around with make up to create different looks.

Beauty isn’t just for us girls. Our men deserve to be pampered too. My hubby has quite sensitive skin, so when it comes to shaving his skin can sometimes be left feeling very sore and inflamed. After hunting around trying all kinds of products that promised to soothe his poor face, we discovered this clever balm from Atkinson’s. After applying the balm, his face instantly felt cool and refreshed. Unlike most shave balms that can give our men quite a stinging feeling, the Atkinsons shave balm was very calming and refreshing. It also left his face feeling super smooth and kissable. You can buy this high-quality shave balm at www.selfridges.com
With Father’s Day coming up, why not treat the man in your life to this luxury balm.
Sachajun hair in the sun is most definitely a holiday must have, we all know that when you visit different countries, your hair can be affected by the change in humidity. Our skin care routines change with the seasons and so should our hair care. We often overlook the effect sun exposure has on our hair. Sun damage is not just bad for your skin, it can also leave your locks dry, damaged and brittle. This is where Sachajuan can help. Not only does it protect your hair from the harmful rays, it also leaves it feeling healthy, glossy and vibrant. Combined with a UVA filter which is long-lasting, it even carries on protecting your hair when it’s wet. This is definitely one product that should be in your beach bag this Summer.

Coconut oil has so many beauty benefits and my hair seems to absolutely LOVE it! The Faith In Nature Conditioner is more of a day-to-day conditioner whereas the Shea Moisture Hair mask is an intensive treatment that I use once a week.
