I feel like I have been so useless recently and have been letting a lot of things get in the way of blogging which I really hate so I am hoping that I’m soon going to get back into the swing of things as I’ve got so many things to show you guys. I am however off on holiday tomorrow which I am looking forward to, I’ve had such a crap year so far what with me being unwell and just feeling like my life is generally over so I’m hoping this is going to give me a right kick up the backside to stop dwelling on whats wrong and instead start telling myself I can do things and I will get past this even if it has to be done with baby steps.
While I am away I do have some lovely ladies looking after my blog in the form of guest posts so I am hoping you all will give them a warm welcome, leave them lots of lovely comments and hopefully head over to their blogs and show them some love there.
Now we’ve got all I’ve got to say out the way lets get on with today’s post…
I didn’t want to pack a lot as normally I go overboard with everything so I just went with what I feel I really needed, I picked up the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Shampoo and Conditioner and the Radox Revive Shower Gel because simply they smell really nice and they were on offer so I thought why not.
I absolutely hate blow drying my hair when on holiday because it is just so hot but if you have seen my hair you know sometimes it has to be done so that’s where the Lee Stafford Blow Dry Your Hair Faster Spray comes in and as for the days when I want to just wash and go I have my trustworthy TIGI Bed Head On The Rebound Curl Cream.
No one can go on holiday without their sun protection and I have chosen to go with Solait from Superdrug Moisturising Lotion Spray Mist which I actually really like, its not at all sticky and leaves you feeling actually quite hydrated and fresh. I’ve also gone with Ultrasun’s Tinted Face Cream* as I don’t want to be sloughing loads of make up on during the day so this will even out my skin while keeping me from the suns harmful rays. I’ve also packed my NUXE Multi-Purpose Dry Oil* as the water out there dries my skin out something rotten so this is just an easy quick fix to get it back feeling like normal without feeling hot and sticky.
I wondered for a while about what I wanted to take to cleanse my face with and I decided to go with the Dove DermaSeries Cream Facial Cleanser* as it is really great with getting rid of any make up and is really gentle on the skin, I’m also taking my Pore Refining Toner from Sanctuary and my absolute favourite skincare product of the moment the Nivea Cellular Anti-Age Skin Rejuvenation Serum*.
I didn’t want to go overboard on make up this year as I normally take loads and end up using next to none so I’ve gone for my trustworthy Ginvera BB Cream, and NYC Smooth Skin Powder which work so well together. I’ve also gone with my HD Brow Palette as I’ve always got to have my eyebrows on. I’ve also got my new favourite bronzer L’Oreal’s Glam Bronze and of course the only highlighter that seems to grace my face lately MAC Soft and Gentle.
I didn’t want to take any expensive eyeshadows so that’s where the MUA Heaven and Earth Palette comes in as its so versatile and if anything bad happens to it I won’t be too annoyed about it, I’ve also got my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Glisten as its a great everyday colour and works well with and without a tan. My mascara I am taking is one by Diego Dalla Palma which is absolutely amazing and lasts for hours not to mention it being completely waterproof, I also have a Diego Dalla Palma Rich Lip Balm* with me as it keeps my lips really hydrated with a little touch of colour. I’ve also bought along my Soap & Glory Smooch Operator as it is like heaven for your lips and really gets them in tip top condition along with a Rimmel Apocalips in Stellar and Lasting Colour Rush in Make Me Blush for a pop of colour. Finally I have a Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Varnish in Apple/Rouge Sublime so I can top up my already painted nails along the way.
Are you off on holiday any time soon? What do you pack in your suitcase?
