Johnson's Baby Lotion

I thought I would help everyone rediscover this little beaut.

I think we all remember this & a puff full of powder being poofed onto use after bath time when we were tiny! I've recently run out of my Liz Earle Clean and Polish and I wanted something cheap and effective to take off my make up. That's when I saw this on the shelf.

I use this with cotton wool pads and squirt it all over my face and buff off. It is actually so effective and it really does make my skin cleaner. I try to cleanse after with another cleanser in the bathroom but if I don't have the time or effort, I can go to bed happy that my face is make up free! I also use this as an all over body moisturiser!

The product comes out a nice girly pink, smells like ickle babies and at less than £3.00 for 500ml is a complete steal! I can't believe we all stopped using it to be honest!

Does anyone have any other uses for this as I'd really like to get even more use out of it?

Dissertation....bite me.

Hi everyone I just thought I'd update you all and literally been up for 24 hours (it's 9:13am and I haven't been to bed) I am about to go and hand my dissertation in.

I'm so relived it's over but if I'm honest to myself...I could have done a much better bit of work if I started collecting my data earlier. I am disappointed with it but as long as I get a C or above I will be happy as I have never found a piece of work so hard. I've been physically sick with worry for the last 2 weeks.

I will be writing a post about my experience and give you all some advice (once I've got my grade back - I don't want to give advice on something I'm crap at)!

2 more assignments and 1 exam to go.
8th May and it's all over.....

17 Lasting Fix Lipsticks

I keep running out of my MAC products (Goodbye MAC Angel *sob*) & haven't the money to keep spending the best part of £15 on one lipstick. We can all agree that Boots 3 for 2 is not only a great bargain but a great excuse to try some drugstore brands because one product is going to be free so it doesn't matter if you hate it!

17 is a favourite drugstore brand of mine, my favourite products being their lipsticks. I picked up three of their Lasting Fix lipsticks in a variety of pinks!

Left to Right - 17 Lasting Fix Lipstick in Hawaiian Pink, Pink Power & Dreamy.

L - R: Hawaiian Pink, Pink Power, Dreamy

Hawaiian Pink - True to the name! It's a pink which slightly leans towards coral. 
Pink Power - A deep blue toned pink which makes a statement lip. I tend to dab this on the lips as it can be quite bright and overpowering!
Dreamy - The lightest of the three, but also my least favourite. It can be a bit flaky on the lips so I suggest buffing your lips and adding a gloss afterwards!

I am very happy with these lipsticks. I got all three for less than one MAC lipstick which makes me smile lots! I would say if these were MAC lipsticks they would be of a creamsheen formula and they do last! I would say around 3 hours? 

I would like to try some more nudey colours from this collection next as I even though I love pinks, nudes make me look more grown up & subtle!

Hope everyone is starting on their Easter chocs!!

Weekly Food Update.

Foodie Post Alert!

Been trying not to snack as much recently and having a big breakfast. My fave breakfast is granola with fresh strawberries; it fills me up until lunch! I've been running with my friend Mia down the park in the mornings - I swear we talk more than run but it's good to get some fresh air anyways!

Coffee cooler at Heathrow airport! My sister finally came home on Sunday night so we have spent a lot of time since then - I had to update her on all the storylines in the soaps & we spent today shopping around town!

Oh and she got me these - my fave sweets!

Monday was spent in the uni library with no food as Greggs the holy grail of campus was closed! I was there 9-5 and me and my friends finished our final ever group project & we feel it is A grade material ;)

 Do you think the pic above looks like the picture below it? No? Me neither! We were very disappointed!

I'm going to be doing a jewellery haul and a Primark haul this week so keep your eyes peeled! Oh and a review of a couple of beauty products as well!

Hope you are all well!
