Wedding Wednesday: The Engagement Party

Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


Haul: Pay Day Beauty Buys

Pay day is the best day isn’t it? Certainly perks you up after a long month working away (unless you work in a school like me where at the end of August you get paid for doing absolutely nothing – score!). I like to go a bit crazy on Pay Day and allow myself to treat myself to a few bits and bobs I’ve been lusting after – I mostly pick up beauty treats but occasionally it’s clothes or shoes. This month it’s all three. Woops. This post is about the beauty things that I bought myself and I might do another post on the clothes and shoes I bought if you’d like that?


Dove Summer Glow Moisturiser

I bought this moisturiser as I currently have a very tanned chest and feet and ghostly pallor elsewhere, I thought this might even out my tan a little bit for when I’m wearing skirts and things. I bought the medium/dark one as everyone says it works quicker so I’m looking forward to giving this a try.


L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Micellar Solution

This is a repurchase as I’ve been using this product for a couple of months now and I love it, it’s so quick and easy to use and it really does work. I use it to remove all of my make-up before I do a deep cleanse, it’s also perfect for cleaning up little mistakes.


Bourjois Blush Exclusif

I was really excited when I spied this little beauty on the shelves of Boots as I’d heard lots of nice things about it, it’s a blush that’s shade depends on the warmth and PH of your skin so it creates a bespoke shade for you. Kind of like the Barry M ‘green’ lipstick that’s pink colour depends on your skin. I’ve not tried this out yet but when I do I’ll do a post about it.


L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

Another repurchase for me, I love this stuff. It’s a lightweight oil for your hair that really smoothes out any frizziness and leaves hair feeling amazing. I think I will always have a bottle of this stuff lurking in my bathroom.


Superfacialist by Una Brennan Intense Moisture Mask

A blogger favourite that I’ve been lusting after for a little while now, my skin tends to get quite dehydrated in the winter due to the heating being on all the time so I thought this would be perfect. I love doing face masks as I find them to be quite therapeutic and it’s nice to take the time to sit and relax. They also offer big results, I almost always notice a difference in my skin after using a mask – hopefully this one will be the same.


Veet Precision Wax & Care

Such a glamorous purchase I’m sure you’ll agree, I’ve wanted to try out this product for a long time but it’s quite expensive. In Boots when I bought this there was an offer on making it a more reasonable price so I popped it in the basket. I’m going to attempt to wax my top lip with this as I’ve noticed the hairs in some of my pictures lately and I don’t like it! I might also try it on my brows if it’s a success elsewhere.


Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat

And another repurchase! I really like this topcoat as it dries your nails super fast, my last bottle has gone a bit gloopy now though so it was time to get a new one. I’ve been using a different topcoat lately but it really frustrates me as I have to wait ages for my nails to dry.

What did you buy on Pay Day?

  1. Really great picks! My payday is tomorrow but I won't get to go out shopping until the weekend, boo!

  2. Im saving at the moment for a few new high-end makeup bits so haven't spent any of my payday money yet! But last month i also bought the l'oreal miceller water and i have written a full review and comparison to bioderma on my blog!


  3. Great Purchases! Reviews on the Superfacialist Intense Moisture Mask and Veet Precision Wax and Care will be much appreciated! Been considering purchasing them for a while!

  4. Lovely treats. I have been using the L'Oreal Micellar Water & really like it. Its gentle & seems to be working well.
    I really want to try that Veet Kit, looking forward to reading how you get on with it.

  5. I'd love to know how the precision wax thing goes...I'm always afraid of getting little spots from the regrowth or whatever. If you don't mind sharing your experience. :)
