This Week I #34

This week hasn't been the most eventful as i've just been prepping for holiday and my graduation, which is tomorrow. I'm so nervous about graduation, but I can't wait to go on holiday and just relax!
Started packing for holiday - As I go on holiday on Wednesday, I started packing mid last week as I knew i'd be too busy by the time the weekend rolled round, especially with my graduation next week also. I'm going to Mallorca Rocks in Maga, and i'm so excited especially as i'll be able to see lots of my favourites such as Annie Mac!
Dyed my hair - I don't usually share this as I dye my hair pretty much every month with the same hair dye, but i'd left my hair un-dyed a little longer what with graduation and holiday coming up. This time I used a different hair dye to usual and I used the new Garnier Olia, which really impressed me compared to my usual hair dye so I may do a review on this.
Did a spot of decorating - Being the top girlfriend I am, I helped my boyfriend begin the process of redecorating his bedroom. Everything from grouting to sanding and then finally painting. I do love little mini projects and I can't wait to see it finished!

As I go on holiday on Wednesday, I have a few scheduled posts lined up for whilst i'm away so hopefully you guys won't miss me too much.

P.S - I have a little giveaway up on my Twitter, so make sure you go and check that out if you haven't already!

What have you been up to this week?

August Favourites

It seems like August has flown by and that summer is pretty much over seeing as it is tipping down as I write this post. So much has happened in August and it's crazy to think that I am graduating next week, and also going on holiday to escape this horrid weather but i'm so excited for everything I have coming up.
This month I have a really random selection of products, as i've been testing out quite a few new bits but these four are the ones that have really stood out to me this month.

Let's kick things off with my most used product over August and this is the Skinny Tan Gradual Tanner (£19.99)*, which I have done a full review on here. This has been the only tanning product that i've used throughout the course of this month and hands down it is one of the best gradual tanners I have used, love it!  

Next up is the Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Eyebrow Shaping Kit* (£2.50), which I spoke a little more about here. I've been loving this eyebrow kit for the majority of the month and has currently replaced my HD Brows Kit, mainly because of the wax. It really helps to set my brows and look overall neater, and it's also really affordable. Moving onto my only skincare love of the month, which is a shock as but it is the Bioderma Hydrabio Mask* (£14.50). This has been a saviour this month as my skin has been getting drier as the month has gone on. Using this twice to three times a week has been really helping to just give my skin a nice burst of hydration. I'll be reviewing this soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that. 

Lastly is a hair care product that you've probably seen on everyone and their mothers blog, as it's been so hyped about and this is the Bumble & Bumble Hairdressesers Invisible Oil Primer (£19). I have the travel size kit so I could try out the range but the primer is the only thing that really pleased me. Firstly it smells amazing, think coconut and holiday all rolled into one. Secondly it works so well to detangle my hair, whilst leaving it feeling so smooth and lastly it's really been keeping the frizz at bay. As for the heat protectant, I can't comment as I tend to not use any heat on my hair at the minute but I can imagine it does a great job. 

So that is everything that i've been loving this month!

Those Little Things..

Happiness is a key part in everyones life, we all know what makes us happy and recently i've began to realise that i'm in a happy place with my life. Today I thought i'd sit back from the beauty reviews and just appreciate those little things that bring me the smallest amount of happiness.

For me happiness can comes in many different forms, from the people in my life, to the objects that make up what I call 'my little space' i.e my bedroom, and also everything that I have experienced this year so far. 

  • A neatly made bed - I don't know what it is about clean bed sheets, perfectly puffed up pillows and cute cushions but they just brighten my day.
  • Motivational quotes - As someone who lacks a lot of motivation in general, I find that having constant motivational reminders really helps me get through the day, and actually dragging my bum to the gym most days.
  • New shoes - There is nothing more satisfying than a new pair of beautiful shoes, especially if they were a bargain.
  • Flowers - There is nothing better than a bunch of fresh flowers, especially if someone special has bought them for you. 
  • Cute text messages - Sounds cheesy, but if i'm having a crappy day and cute text will always cheer me up.
  • Candles - Candles motivate me so much, I always get so much work done with a sweet smelling candle burning in the background, and they really warm up my room during the cold autumn/winter nights.
  • Freshly painted nails - As I can't wear nail varnish at work, the feeling of painting my nails and having a lovely pastel pop to them just brightens my entire mood. 
  • Spending time with loved ones - Having people around me who care and want to see me succeed is all I really need. 
  • Relaxing pamper evenings - I live for these especially when i've had a stressful busy week.
  • Experiencing new things - This year has involved a lot of firsts for me, and I can't wait to experience more, and make new memories. 

What little things make you happy?

Triangl Bikini Dupe

With me going on holiday next week, i've been on the hunt for a few new bikinis for the holiday and of course the Triangl bikinis caught my eye, the price tags not so much, so I turned to my trusty pal eBay in my quest for a dupe or something similar.
 My friend Abbie, who i'm going on holiday with actually pointed in the direction as she also ordered the orange version of this bikini and to be honest i'm quite happy with what I got. There are a lot of sellers on eBay selling pretty much dupes of the Triangl Bikinis and I bought mine here and they stock so many different styles and colours.

I paid £3.28 and then £4.99 post + package on top, which I wasn't going to complain about as this was literally a fraction of the price of the Triangl Bikini's and if I had the money I would have paid for the genuine thing but I just couldn't justify almost £50. The only disappointing thing is that you can't order different sizes for the top and bottom, so I opted for a medium (8-10) so at least the top would fit but I knew the bottoms would be too small and they are a little snug, so i'll be wearing a plain black pair with the top. If you are more in proportion where your top and bottom size is relatively the same then i'd definitely recommend giving eBay a try. 

I can't wait to wear this on holiday and i'm getting really excited now!

Have any of you found any good Triangl bikini dupes?
