May Favourites // 2015


The end of May also marks the end of my first year at University which has been a world wind of a journey. Because I have had exams for the last month, not much make up has made its way onto my face which means that I don't have many make up favourites. However I feel like I have made up for it with Nail Polishes instead. Here's a round up of my monthly favourites...


Milani Baked Blush 'Luminoso' 
One product that I have been obsessed with for the past month is this Baked Blush. I had never tried a baked blush before and the swatches online looked stunning so I picked one up and it was worth every penny. The glow that this blusher gives off is truly stunning and has been my go to blush every day this month.


Collection Eyes Uncovered 'Nude Bronze Palette' 
The only other product that I have used this month is the Collection Eyes Uncovered 'Nude Bronze Palette'. I have talked about this palette a couple of times in past posts but didn't mention it in last month favourites so here we are. If your a lover of a good bronze eyeshadow then this is the palette for you! Not to mention the amazing quality.


Essie 'Haute in the Heat'
The first of many nail polishes comes from Essie in the shade 'Haute in the Heat'. I do love a good deep pink and this one is beautiful. The quality is unbelievably good and is long lasting. I normally buy Essie Nail Polishes from Fragrance Direct as they are normally discounted.


Barry M 'Blueberry'
The nail polish I am currently rocking on my toes at the moment is 'Blueberry' from Barry M. During the summer, I love having blues nails and this light blue shade is perfect. There is something very fulfilling about nails which matches the swimming pool. Anyone else love when this happens?


Barry M Jelly Hi-Shine 'Rose Hip'
I don't normally rock any light pink shades as they look washed out against my skin tone but this one is different. I paired this shade with Relvon's 'Up the Ante' which makes the perfect pair. If you buy one nail polishes this summer, make it this one because it is worth a try!


Relvon 'Up The Ante'
I don't normally wear purple nail polishes as I don't think they suit me very well. However when I found this shade in 'Boots', I couldn't help but pop at into my basket. There something about 'Up The Ante' by Relvon that is eye catching and goes perfectly with Barry M 'Rose Hip'. The combination is the ideal mixture of spring and summer.

Yoga With Adriene 
Yoga isn't something that I have ever really got into before as I didn't have the time or the knowledge. This all changed when watched one of Yoga With Adrian's Videos. I couldn't believe how relaxing and peaceful it was. Now I try to do four videos per week. I like to do alot of the weight loss videos as well as the morning routines. It is honestly the perfect way to start the day.

What are your May Favourites?

Healthy Eating | My Top 5 Tips


One thing that I have been trying really hard at for the last couple of months is healthy eating. When I first moved out and had to cook for myself, I honestly ate some of the most unhealthy meals in the world because they were quick and easy and because there was no one to stop me or yell at me. This may seem like the dream but trust me when I say that it takes a massive toll on your body. After noticing that I didn't have as much energy and my hair and skin was looking worst for wear I decided to make a change.

Before I get into my tips for eating healthy, I feel the need to tell you that before I made this change, I ate whatever I wanted to without thinking about the effects it has or what it has inside and I was the complete opposite of healthy eating. However now I am eating healthy and love cooking for myself and have even come up with some tips as well...

Source - Link

1. The Smallest Change Can Make a Difference 
This may sound like an obvious thing but its true. Don't make any big changes to your diet because you will only end up going back to your old eating habits by the end of the day. Try to make little and small changes which won't affect your daily routine. I started with cutting out soft fizzy drinks which also helped my bank account. Winning!

2. Drink Water and Cut Out Alcohol 
If there is one thing I am brilliant at, it would be drinking water. If water drinking was a sport in the Olympics I would win hands down. I never used to drink any water at all but then one day, I decided to challenge myself to only drink water for one week and the difference it made was amazing! Cutting out alcohol is an easy one for me as I don't drink but some alcoholic drinks are fully of calories so be aware.

 3. Preparation, Preparation & Preparation
I can't express how important preparation is. If you work long hours or come back late from the gym or college, the last thing your going to want to do is spend hours cooking a healthy meal so you will most likely go for a take out or pizza right? Well If I know I am going to be back late, I like to cut up the ingredients in the morning and prepare the sauce so when I get home, I only have to cook. Easy!



Source - Link 

4. Look & Think before you eat 
Before I started to have a healthy eating habit, I never ever bothered to look at the nutrition information or ingredients list but fast forward a year and I wouldn't dream of eating something before checking out the ingredients list. Even products such as pre made smoothies at the Supermarket may have hidden sugars so check before hand. Yes it may take more time but your body will thank you in the long run.

5. Find Inspiration & Recipes 
Finding healthy recipes and dishes helped me to cook and eat healthy meals. I first started by purchasing Deliciously Ella which is one of the best cookbook books ever. The recipes are simple and easy and don't require you to hunt high and low for the ingredients. Another great place to find inspiration is Pinterest as well as Food Blogs and Youtube channels. If you are motivated and inspirated, you are much more likely to eat cleanly.

Thinking about making a few changes yet? I hope these tips and tricks were helpful to you and these are just my own ideas and they may work differently for you. I am in no way a nutrition expert but I figured that these work well for my lifestyle.

What are your healthy eating tips or tricks?

Milani Baked Blush 'Luminoso'


If there is one blusher which I have heard so much about it is the Milani Baked Blush in 'Luminoso'. The hype around this product is unbelievable and on one boring and lazy afternoon, I finally logged onto Amazon and placed an order. I first heard about this product from Ingrid Nilsen and Miss Budger Beauty and I became very interested. Shockingly, I had never tried a baked blush before and I felt that this blusher was a great place to start.

'This silky blush with benefits can be used so many ways. It shapes, it contours, it highlights. Sunbaked on Italian terracotta tiles, it’s buildable from sheer to vibrant. Yes, it adds a cheeky pop of colour to your complexion. Radiance and warmth, too.'



When you first set eyes on the blusher, it looks shiny and slightly shimmery but still looks natural. The peachy coral shade really suits my skin tone but I also think that it suits all different types of skin tones as well. The sheen that this baked blusher gives is very flattering and is one that I adore. The pigmentation of this blusher is unbelievable and only really requires one application rather than having to spend a while building it up.

In terms of packaging. the gold lid really gives it that sophisticated look and doesn't look cheap at all. However the blusher does have a second layer, where a brush is stored but is not of great quality. I would personally prefer to have more product and no brush at all.


Overall, I can't stop singing praise about this product because it is truly amazing. The pigmentation and intensity is unlike anything else I have ever tried. Although the packaging isn't anything to shout about, at £6.79 I can't really ask for more. On a daily basis I reach for this baked blusher over all my others because it is easy to apply and is of great quality.

Have you tried this Baked Blusher? What did you think?

Top 5 Nail Polishes Under £5


One of my favourite things to shop for is nail polishes and I often spend hours wondering around Boots and Superdrug trying to find the prettiest shades. Although there many great high end brands which provide great nail polishes, the drugstore is one of the best places to find great quality nail polishes at a budget-friendly price. Here are my top 5 under £5...


Rimmel Lasting Finish 'Fancy a Dip?' - Link 
One brand which sometimes gets over looked is Rimmel when it comes to nail polishes. However I find that the quality is great and long lasting not to mention the amazing range of shades. My favourite shade from Rimmel has to be 'Fancy a Dip?' which is a light baby blue colour.


Essie 'Haute in the Heat' - Link 
Essie is a blogger favourite brand when it comes to nail polishes and normally they are around £7.99 but at fragrance direct they are sold at £2.49 per bottle. I remember a couple of years ago when I first tried an Essie nail polish and was blown away by the quality and I am a sucker for a dark pink shade.



Barry M Nail Polish 'Amethyst Glitter' - Link
One of my all time favourite nail polish which I have talked about countless times would be Barry M. I feel that there isn't a brand which provides great quality nail polishes at such a cheap price like Barry M does. They also have a glitter range which I am in love with. 



Maybelline Superstay 'Crystal Clear' - Link 
I'm not going to lie when I say that I haven't really tried many Maybelline Nail Polishes but one that I have tried is there 'Crystal Clear' Base and Top Coat which I use every time I paint my nails. This top coat makes my nail polish last for weeks without a single chip. Amazing!


Barry M Jelly Hi-Shine 'Sugar Apple' - Link 
Coming back to Barry M, one of their nail polishes range is their Jelly Hi-Shine. This range has great quality nail polishes which are thick and shiny and long lasting. My favourite shade from them has to be 'Sugar Apple' which is a light mint green colour and is perfect for spring. 

What are your favourite nail polishes?

How To Motivate Yourself To Workout


Recently I have been very good and have been working out every morning for the past two months and this is because of my new found fitness and workout motivation. The reason why I never got into fitness before hand was because I didn't have the motivation to drag myself out of bed but that has all changed! I felt the need to share them with you so that you can be just as motivated...

1. Cute Workout Clothes
This may sound like a odd thing to be motivated by but honestly it works! Go out and buy yourself some cute, pretty and colourful workout bras, tops and pants. If you feel comfortable and happy in your workout clothes, you are more likely to enjoy the exercise and makes you feel good as well. If I'm feeling demotivated, I think about the new workout leggings I brought and then I'm up and out the door. 

2. Make a Workout Playlist
The night before you plan to workout or exercise, plan and create a playlist of your favourite songs. These songs should generally be up beat and fun to listen to. If you have a couple of new songs that you like to listen to, then download the songs onto your phone or ipod. The only way I get through a run is if I have my dance playlist going otherwise it isn't happening. If your stuck for music, then just have a google and there are loads of suggestions. 

3. Do it in the Morning 
There have been countless times when I have said, I'll workout this evening and then I end up completely skipping it. I quickly learnt that working out in the morning gets it out of the way and allows you to get on with the rest of the day. Yes this will sometimes mean that you may have to get up earlier but chances of getting it done later are going to be smaller. I love going for a run or a swim in the morning as it refreshes me and fully wakes me up. 

4. Make it a date
I don't mean in a romantic way, but a workout date with a friend or family member. If you agree to meet up with a person at the gym to workout, you are more likely to go. Your workout buddy could be a friend, partner or family member. I personally love waking up my sister and dragging her out for a walk, run or cycle ride. Not only does it make it more fun and enjoyable but the time just seems to flow by without you noticing.  
  
Are you feeling motivated yet? I hope these tips and tricks have got you up and into your workout clothes and to the gym. These are just my ideas and tips and they work well for me but they may work differently for you. I would love to hear what exercises and sports you love to perform! 

What motivates you to keep fit and exercise?

Top Drugstore Bronzers



As a university student, I only ever shop at the drugstore when it comes to Make Up and it is no different when it comes to Bronzers. I never really wore bronzers when I first started wearing make up as I didn't understand how to use them. Because of this, I started at the drugstore when I finally decided to try a bronzer. But this wasn't an easy task so I thought I would give you a round up of my top drugstore bronzers...


My first ever bronzer that I brought was from MUA. I don't really know why I picked this one other than the fact it only cost £1. The packaging of this bronzer is simple and clear and isn't any thing fancy. The product itself is a shimmer bronzer which I don't normally go for as I prefer matte bronzers but for a first bronzer this is great. 


Another bronzer that I love and use regularly is the Soap & Glory Solar Powder. The paper packaging isn't great as it wears and tears easily. However the bronzer is truly amazing and contains two different shades. It has a light shade which has shimmer in as well as a darker shade which is matte. I personally swirl the two shades together to create the perfect glow. At £11, it isn't the cheapest bronzer in the store but it is worth a try.  


One of my newest bronzers is the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer which is a blogger favourite. I have to agree that the packaging is very cute but the product is even better. This bronzer is almost matte with a hint of shimmer to it and gives a lovely warm glow to my face. I normally use this bronzer to travel with as it fits perfectly into my make up bag and costs £7.99. 


The last bronzer is on the cheaper end of the scale but is just as good. The Rimmel Bronze Compact Powder is a great bronzer if you are starting out in make up as it is completely matte and contains no shimmer at all. On natural make up days, I reach for this bronzer over others because it gives a more natural look while still adding warmth and colour to my face. At £5.61, it is such a bargain!

What are your favourite bronzers from the drugstore?

A Cream Eyeshadow Obsession


As a beauty blogger I always love make up products but there is one specific product that I have an obsession with and that would be cream eyeshadows. Every time I go shopping I always end up buying more eyeshadows and I just can't help myself. There is something about the glass pots with black lids that draw me towards them and I'm sure that the collection will continue to grow.


As well as the packaging, I love the formula. When I first started experimenting with make up, I was too scared to try cream eyeshadows and stuck to powder eyeshadows. However fast forward a couple of years and I reach for a cream eyeshadow over powder eyeshadows almost everyday. The creamy blendable texture and formula makes it so easy and quick to apply. 


My favourite cream eyeshadows are the Maybelline Colour Tattoos. I would even go as far as saying it is one of the best in the drugstore. At only £4.99, they are such a bargain and come in a range of different shades. A blogger favourite is 'On and On bronze' which is a beautiful bronze shade. My personal favourite at the moment has to be 'Creamy Beige' which is a perfect everyday colour that can be used as a base for other eyeshadows. 

Do you like cream eyeshadows?  What is your make up obsession?

Blogger Inspired Purchases



You know when you pop into Boots or Superdrug just to buy toothpaste but then you notice a product that a blogger has raved about and ends up sneaking into your basket. I have a few too many of those moments and I have to admit that I do end up buying products based on blogs that I normally read and products that they rave about and recommend. I thought I would give you a round up of my favourite blogger inspired purchases...

Make Up Academy Iconic Eyeshadow Palettes 
I remember when I first heard about this new brand launching and that they were going to be a budget friendly brand. I was so excited to try there products and when I saw Missbudgetbeauty raving about their eyeshadow palettes which were dupes for the Urban Decay Naked 1, 2 and 3 palettes I couldn't help but place an order and try it out for myself. 

Soap & Glory Solar Powder
I once came across a YouTube video from ViviannaDoesMakeup where she was raving about the Soap and Glory Solar Powder. After she mentioned it in a favourites video, I decided to pick it up when I was in Boots. I am so happy I did because I haven't stopped using it. Vivianna talked about the two shades of bronzers which it contains and how it isn't glittery and I couldn't agree more. 

Rimmel Eastend Snob Lip Liner 
I can't just pick one blogger who talked about this lip liner. I remember a week when I just continued to see this lip liner pop up on my bloglovin feed and I couldn't help but run out to Superdrug and pick one up for myself to see if it was as good as everyone else says. I have to agree with all the bloggers who raved about this lip liner because it is that good!

Ubran Decay Primer Potion 
This has to be one of the biggest talked about products in the blogging world. I don't really have the money to spend £17 on an eyeshadow primer but after seeing bloggers such as Zoella, The Sunday Girl and many others raving about it, I decided to part with the money. I have honestly never found an eyeshadow primer as good as this and has to be one of the biggest blogger inspired purchases ever. 

Am I the only one who has a lot of blogger inspired products? These are products which have been inspired from other amazing bloggers and may work differently for you. I hope you enjoyed this post and found it interesting.

What blogger inspired purchases do you have?

Recently Purchased Products


As I was going through my make up collection and having a tidy up, I noticed that I had collected to number of recent purchases that had yet to be photographed and talked about, so here we go. These products were brought over a period of a couple of weeks from Boots, Fragrance Direct and Amazon. The products that were brought include eyeshadows, lip products, a blusher and a few nail polishes thrown in too...


I will be the first to admit that I have a problem when it comes to nail polishes and the collection just keeps growing. When I was in Boots a couple of weeks ago, I decided to adventure out from Barry M and try a new brand and that's when I discovered Revlon's 'Up The Ante'. It is the perfect spring purple colour. I also picked up a couple of Essie Nail Polishes in 'Status Symbol' and 'Haute in the Heat'. I promise you, they aren't the same shade of pink!


When I was browsing Fragrance Direct the other week, I spotted a couple of L'oreal lip products. After searching up swatches of the products, I popped a couple of them into my basket. The first product I picked was the  L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash in 'Romy'. This is the perfect everyday lipgloss which dries to a matte finish and is very long lasting. The other product I got was the L'oreal Caresse Lipstick in 'Candy & Cherry' which is a bright Barbie pink colour. 


One Amazon purchase I made last week was the Milani Baked Blush in 'Luminoso'. I had seen Ingrid Nilsen raving about this baked blush for a while and I finally decided to check it out for myself. I have to admit that this blush is definitely worth the hype and has to be one of the most amazing blushes in the drugstore. The pigmentation of this product is unbelievable and blends perfectly without making you look like a disco ball. I would seriously recommend it!


The last product is the Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Bronze Palette. I have heard a number of bloggers talking about this eyeshadow product and I felt the need to see what the hype was about. I honestly can't express how much I love this palette. This has to be one of the best palettes in the drugstore and compares to higher end brands such as Urban Decay and Mac. I hardly ever find a palette in which I use all the shades but with this one I do!

What products have you brought recently?

The Lazy Girl Introduction To Exercise


[pixabay]

One thing that I am trying so hard to keep up is exercising and to be specific, exercising everyday. As I am sure you know by now, one of my goals for this year is to exercise and be more active. It was fair to say that it started off pretty rocky however I think I am finally back on track. As a sport student, you would think that I am very easily motivated but you would be wrong. I find it rather hard to motivate myself to get out and off my laptop and exercise. However since beginning my fitness journey I have found some tips to help motivate myself and I thought I would share them with you. So here is my lazy girl introduction to exercise...

20-30 Minutes Per Day 
When I first set myself the goal of exercising everyday, I exercised for an hour at a time but quickly lost my motivation. However I learned that with the right type of exercise, you only need to exercise for between 20-30 minutes per day. If you really don't like the idea of doing exercise or being active, try and do 20 to 30 of gentle exercise per day. This could involve walking around a park or by the seaside. 

Find an Activity That You Like 
The first words that normally come to mind when people mention exercise include running. One thing that some don't realise is that there are many different forms of exercise and not every form of exercise is suitable or fun for everyone. Find a exercise that you like and enjoy because if you enjoy it, you are more likely to stick to it. Some of my favourites include swimming, aqua fit classes, yoga and pilates. Not everything requires running until you can't physically breathe any more. Believe me, exercise can be fun.

Get an Exercise Buddy 
Another way to make exercise more fun includes having an exercise buddy. This could be a family member or friend. I normally try to rope my sister or brother to come running or swimming with me. Having someone to workout with makes it more fun and makes you push yourself further. Working out with friends is also great because it becomes a social activity and one of my favourites is going to a aqua fit class with my best friend. I haven't laughed and smiled as much as I do when I am in aqua fit classes.

Fitness is a Journey 
The last one isn't really a tip but rather a statement. Fitness is a Journey and it took a while for me to understand this. You can't expect to see changes straight away. It takes months for the changes to be noticed. The worse thing to do is exercise for a week and then wonder why you haven't seen a change. Give it time and trust me, you will see results.

I hope you found these tips helpful if you are trying to workout more and be more active. These are just my advice and I am no workout or exercise expert and these are just tips that I found work for me. If you have any tips which you discovered please feel free to leave them in the comments below. Don't forget to follow me on bloglovin and twitter!

Palettes on a Budget


One of my favourite make up products is eyeshadows and to be specific eyeshadow palettes. There are some stunning palettes such as the Stila 'In The Light' palettes. However you don't need to spend a lot of money to own a palette that has great quality eyeshadows. As a student, I only really have the budget to buy palettes from Boots or Superdrug. Through this I noticed that there were some great budget palettes around and I thought I would share my favourites...


I picked this palette up in Superdrug a couple of months ago and is from Make Up Revolution. This is the 'Girls in Film' Palette and cost £6 for 18 shades. This has to be one of the biggest bargains in the drugstore. The quality of these eyeshadows is amazing. One thing that makes this palette stand out from others is the packaging. The sleek shiny black packaging makes it look more expensive. 


The Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette in 'Nude Bronze' is my newest find and is my new favourite. At only £3.99, it is the cheapest one but don't be mistaken because it is truly amazing! I would almost go as far as saying it is one of the best in the drugstore. The pigmentation is stunning and blends like nothing else I have ever tried. The quality of the these eyeshadows compares to high end brands such as Urban Decay and Stila. 


A brand which has a great reputation for eyeshadow palettes is Sleek. I first heard about them from Zoella and after that I become hooked. This is the 'Oh So Special' palettes and contains mattes as well as shimmers and are very pigmentated. I reviewed this palettes a couple months ago so if you want to know what I think click here. My three favourite shades are Organza, Gateau and Gift Basket. 


The other brand that is famous for their drugstore palettes has to be MUA. I first heard about them when they released their Undressed Palette which claimed to be a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. MUA do some of the cheapest palettes at such great quality. The packaging isn't anything to shout about but at £4, you can't really ask for anything more. If you are looking for a dupe for the Naked 1 or 2, check out the MUA stand in Superdrug.

What are your favourite budget friendly palettes?

5 Blog Post Ideas

[Pixabay]

You know when writers block strikes and you just can't seem to write a blog post regardless of how many times you try? I seem to get writers block more often than not but after a break, the juices begin to flow again and I'm on my way. However there are some days when writers block just won't go away and that's when I turn towards my back up list of ideas. I created a list of ideas when they came to me and they come in handy and I thought for this post I would share 5 ideas that I use when the block strikes...

1. Wishlists
Whether it be beauty or fashion, wishlists are one of my backup posts. My personal favourite wishlists come from Asos.com. You could even do a high-end or drugstore wishlist. Why not share your favourite picks from your favourite store?

2. Best & Worst 
Another simple idea which can be used for a couple of different posts. You could do a best and worst of a brand from the high street or the best and worst of a certain type of product such as foundations. Just go through your make up collection and pick up the best and worst. Easy! 

3. Favourite Nail Polishes 
I love to talk about nail polishes so much and you can too. Share your favourite nail polishes from this season such as spring or summer nail polishes. You could even go a one step further by talking about nail art if your good at it. You could also compare high end and drugstore and talk about different brands. 

4. Top 10 Under 10 
Another post which can be used over and over again. You could do a top 10 under 10 for a range of products such as foundations, lipsticks, concealer, bronzers, blushers, eyeshadow palettes, eye liners and mascaras. Why not create a face of make up for under £10?

5. Outfit / Face of the Day
This is one of the easiest posts to do and take minutes to create. Take a photo of your current outfit or your make up face. Talk about what clothes or products your wearing or take a picture of an outfit for a special  event.

Are those blog writing juices beginning to flow again? I really hope that you found this post useful and that you have a idea of what to write now. These are just my thoughts and options and there are many different ideas you could use. Don't forget to follow me on bloglovin and twitter!

Have you got any tips for writers block? What are they?

Spring Essentials | Beauty & Fashion



The fact that Spring is finally here is very exciting. One thing I love about the change in season is the change in make up and fashion that comes with it. I personally love Spring as it is a signal that summer is slowly but surely coming. As a celebration of Spring, I thought I would share my Spring Essentials with you. These essentials include nail polishes, lipsticks, skincare and fashion...


Nail Polishes 
During spring I love to rock brighter colours as well as pastel shades. During the winter months, I only ever wear darker shades such as Purple or Black but as soon as the Sun pops out I crack out my pastel shades. Something makes me so happy to have colour on my nails and pastels are perfect for Spring and one of my favourites is Rimmel 'Fancy a Dip? Bright colours are my other favorite nail polishes during spring as they add a pop of colour to an otherwise dull outfit. My personal choices include Barry M 'Papaya', OPI 'Too Hot Pink To Hold Em', Relvon 'Up The Ante' and Nicole OPI 'Jade in the Shade'. 


Lip Products 
Another Spring Essential for me are lip products. Throughout the winter months, I normally rock a neutral or dark lip colour. However during Spring I try to adventure into colours. This often involves different shades of pink. I feel that Spring is the perfect time to rock a light pink lip as this also brightens the outfit and refreshes your make up. My spring lip products include the Collection Cream Puff 'Fairy Cake', Rimmel Kate Moss '28', Revlon 'Strawberry Shortcake' and Natural Collection 'Pink Mallow'. 


Spring Fashion Items 
As well as make up items, fashion also changes which is equally as exciting. During the winter months, I live in Jeans, Leggings and nothing else. I hardly ever crack out my skirts or dresses so when Spring rolls around, I try my best to peel myself away from Jeans and Leggings. One of my favourite items to wear is Kimonos. They are perfect for throwing over shorts and dresses when the temperature drops a little. My personal favourites come from New Look and Primark. Other spring items include Jumpsuits and Skater Dresses as well as Sandals and Wedges. 


Skincare 
Alot of people think that once the temperature rises, you don't need to moisturise but they are wrong. If anything it is just as important to moisturise and take care of your skin during Spring. Because I wear more dresses and skirts during these months, I find it more vital to scrub, especially on the legs which are more exposed. My scrub of choice comes from Soap and Glory in the Sugar Crush Scent. Along with scrubbing comes moisturising which is equally as important. The Body Shop Body Butters are amazing at hydrating the skin. 

And those were my Spring Essentials. I hope you have found this post useful and helpful. These are just my thoughts and options and these products and ideas may work differently for you. Hopefully this post has helped you switch up your beauty an fashion items to make them more spring appropriate. Don't forget to follow me on bloglovin and twitter! 

What are your Spring Essentials?
