Lily England Brushes Review

27.7.16


Hello everyone! Today's post is going to be a review of the Lily England brushes (now on sale) that I've been loving so much lately. I have been using these brushes every time I do my makeup ever since they arrived. The set of 5 brushes now costs £25.99 which is a decent price for such high quality brushes, in my opinion. The luxurious collection is cruelty-free/vegan and crafted by hand to the highest standards. 

My Summer Reading List | 2016

16.7.16



Summertime is finally here and this season is perfect for fluffy romance or even dark contemporaries by the beach or in your garden. I get most of my reading done during this time of the year and I'm sure that I am not the only one. This time is different though because I don't go to the same school anymore where I used to have 3 month long vacations and could finish as many books and TV shows as I wanted (internally crying). I feel like I have so many things to do in these two months and the days are passing by so fast. I'm hoping I can get through the 7 books I have chosen for my summer reading list.

OGX Shampoo & Conditioner Review

4.7.16


I've always seen the OGX hair products being reviewed and raved about by bloggers and wondered how they would be for my hair type, and I finally got the chance to try them out! OGX is one of the most innovative hair care brands around, with a huge range of luxury shampoo and conditioners for an affordable price. Most of their products are inspired by nature, SLS sulphate free and they do not test on animals. The chemical SLS removes the oils from your hair which is bad if you have dry or damaged hair because it would strip your hair of its natural oils, too. Shampoos that are free of sulphates will increase the moisture in your hair, retain your hair's natural oils and reduce scalp problems.

What's In My Bag (School + Day Out)

27.6.16


Hey everyone! For today's post I thought I'd share what's in my bag. I'm a very nosy person so I love seeing what people keep in their bags, and I know there's others who are like that too so I hope you enjoy having a peek inside my bags. I have two separate bags, one is for school and the other is for weekends and if I have to go somewhere besides school during the week. I just find it easier than having to remove books and such.  

The bag that I use for school is a Michael Kors tote bag in the color 'Luggage' (similar here) and I think it is the perfect size and it fits everything I need. I can easily just reach out to it and whatever I need since it has no zipper, although that wouldn't be ideal for a shopping day in the busy city. It's all big and spacious for the books, necessities, and food I keep inside. 

First thing I have inside the bag is obviously a book or folders that I needed to take home for the day, besides that I will keep everything inside my locker. I always plan and write down things I need to do at home then I put my planner inside my bag and take it with me everyday. Although it's a quite big planner making my bag heavier easily, I always need it for writing down tasks and planning what I need to do after school. Of course, I take my phone with me as well and that's with my headphones in a zipperless pocket right in the front.


Then, I've got my black pencil case from Paperchase. I've already purchased two of these in the past four years and I love it. It has the perfect amount of space for my stationary and two little pockets where I can keep things like my USB. For the things like tape, stapler, hole puncher and etc. that are too big for me to carry around my bag, I have a blue container of a set of these things in a mini version. I've also got a black and gold bag in which I keep things like tissues, hand cream, roll-on perfume, sanitizer and lipstick. Then, I've got my locker key (plus my house key which isn't present in this picture haha) and lastly my wallet. 


As for the bag I take out with me for errands or a day out during the weekend, I like to keep it very minimal and only put things which I actually need. The bag is from a store called Elleez New York in MyZeil, Frankfurt. It was originally €80 then went on sale to €40 then at last to €30! I think this crossbody bag is perfect as it's not too big nor small. Now on to what I keep in it. First thing I do before I get out of the house is obviously switch my wallet from the other bag to this one and put my phone in there too. Then there's other things that are already in there like my sunglasses for sunny days, my anatomicals foam sanitizer for whenever my hands get dirty while snacking on something (which is all the time) and any type of hand cream. If the bag I'm carrying does not fit my umbrella which in this case it doesn't, I still carry it with me in case it rains. Of course, I've got to take the lip product I'm wearing that day and as summer time is here I also have this sample of blotting sheets from Jolse. Any bag I carry around always has to have a pad in one of the zipped pockets in case of emergencies, so I've got one in there too. That is all I keep in this bag, like I said I don't like to put things in my bags just for the sake of filling them up. I only keep things I need and reach out to all the time.



What are some things you have to keep in your bag?
