Travel Bag

I have been saying for a while that I will show you my new travel bag which I use when I travel home for the week. It got its first use over Christmas, and I was so happy with just how much easier it is to have all my beauty and skincare products in one place.

The bag is from +Debenhams:

I really love the colour and vibrancy of the bag, its really cute and girly with little hearts imprinted on.

This how the bag looks when it is opened up and you can clearly see the different compartments to the bag and how spacious it is. At the top there is a little zip compartment which is where I actually put my bits of jewellery which I want to wear whilst at home. The bag then has 2 large compartments which are clear which is great so you can see exactly what you have packed and what you have missed without having to root through. It looks a little messy as everything has fallen to the bottom of the bag as it is hung up. The hook is really useful as you can just hang it on your door like I have, and pack whilst it is hanging there.

In the top compartment I keep all of my skincare essentials which I need there's not to many really as I have a few spare things at home. However, the things I took with me were my:
-Garnier toner
- Bioderma travel size micelle solution
- Comb
- Body Shop seeweed mattifying day cream
- Thisworks breathe in
and then I also added to this section because I had room left in this section my chewable vitamin C tablets and urban decay 3 palette.

In the bottom part was all my makeup, I know it looks a mess but I promise its organised. The makeup bits I took home were my:
- Nars laguna bronzer
- Rimmel BB cream
- MAC studio fix foundation
- Rimmel day to night mascara
- Maxfactor false lash effect mascara
- Sleek blush in rose gold
- MAC fluidline in local wares
- Maybelline lipstick in fuchsia flash
- MAC lipstick in vegas volt
- MAC 217 brush
- Beauty sponge
- Eyeliner brush
- Blush brush
- Large powder brush

I really recommend this style of travel bag and it was under £10, I will be able to get a lot of use out of it. If you don't want to put it in your suitcase if you are lacking in space you can just carry it separately which is really convenient compared to conventional makeup bags.


Introducing Fashion Fridays

As well as having a real passion for all thing beauty, I also have a love for all things fashion as well!

So I have come up with a new concept of post which I will be posting every Friday morning called simply 'Fashion Fridays'.

So to kick off this new venture on the blog, I am going to talk about my love for playsuits and jumpsuits this season. I recently fell in love with a beautiful playsuit from +Topshop and I instantly popped it in my basket whilst shopping online. However, I then had second thoughts as the price tag to the item was £48! For Topshop I think that is pricey and I started to think about the amount I would be able to wear the item.

Last week I posted about how I was going on a girls night out in Liverpool so that was classed as occasion one where I would get to wear the outfit. Then I remembered that occasion two would be happening within the same week as I was going out last Saturday when I got back to uni for a big catch up with everyone. So I thought two occasions within the same week with different people justified me purchasing the playsuit. I decided to go into store to buy it as I was not sure about sizing and did not really have time to wait for it to come and then return it store to try and find the correct size. When I tried it on - it was instant love! It fitted perfectly as it is from the petite section and I am only 5ft, so the collection is pretty perfect for me. It is very comfortable, it pulls in perfectly on the waist and its not to tight on the legs. I got many compliments from my friends and they all said how much they loved it which is always a lovely feeling and makes the price tag worth its while.
