I hope this inspires you to make your own for someone or especially for yourself!

My Dry Skin Essentials featuring The Body Shop

Dry Skin Essentials
I recently did a post on my Winter Lip Essentials as it is that time of the year where we need to take care of our bodies more than ever. With the heating on full blast and the cold bitter days outside it certainly takes it's toll, so I defiantly like to have a good routine in place to soothe my dry, scaly skin!
What are your dry skin essentials? Tweet me
1. This for me is crucial, exfoliating is the best for getting rid of the dead skin to reveal the new glowing skin. I love exfoliating gloves as they are easy and quick, I usually do this twice a week in the shower. If your looking for something with a grit then a body scrub is for you, there is so many out there but the one that never fails me is my DIY scrub simply made of sugar, honey and oil.
2. Next up is replenishing the body with moisture and I love a thick buttery body butter especially The Body Shop ones, they the trick perfectly, but as they are so thick I tend to use these at night so they have time to sink in well. My favourite is the Shea Butter but I am currently using the Vitamin E one which is perfect for dry skin and has a light scent.
3. When I shower in the morning I have to moisturise after other wise my skin feels tight and dry so I have to have a day moisturiser on hand that sinks in quickly and feel light on the skin. I am currently using this Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing* lotion which is especially targeted for dry skin and smells so fresh and clean.
*The Vaseline moisturiser was sent to me for review consideration

My Winter Night Routine

Winter Night Routine
A good beauty night routine is just as important as a morning one, which is why I like to have a regimented routine that I try to stick to each night. That said being a women is defiantly not easy! especially when there is so many lotions and potions you can use to enhance our natural beauty but it is sometimes hard remembering what to use when etc. that's why it's important for me to stick to a routine so I don't miss anything out! Here's an insight into my Winter Night Routine.

Top 10 Party Musthaves Survival Kit

Top 10 Part Musthaves Survival Kit

The Party Season is nearly upon us and if your like me and want to still at least try to look fresh at the end of the night and not look like a dishevelled mess, then it's crucial to pack a few essentials that will help you look like the belle of the ball right into the early hours!
Here's my Top 10 Party Must haves Survival Kit.

1. Like any survival kit a bag or makeup bag is a must to keep all your essentials in so you can easily reach them.
2.  A pretty glitter party polish is always on my top 10 and you can always take it with you for touch ups and they even do mini sizes to pop in your handbag nowadays.
3. Mints or gum is a must have so you have fresh smelling breath when talking to colleague's so they don't smell your wine breath, not attractive! lol
4. By the end of the night it's hard to look glamorous when you have red, tired, bloodshot eyes! Keep them fresh all night with some dazzling eye drops.
5. Anti-bacterial is always a good idea wherever you go, it just helps keep your hands clean in any emergency situation.
6. Blister Plasters are my saviour as you know what it's like you buy a new pair of shoes especially for the party and end up having to sit down the whole night as your riddled with blisters!
7. Make sure you have your lipstick packed for on hand touch ups, defiantly important if your opting for a bright coloured lip.
8. Mirrored compacts are a great idea for quick make-up touch ups and if everyone's hogging the mirror!
9. Most perfumes can be decanted or come in mini versions these days and are such a good idea to keep you smelling fresh as a daisy all night long.
10. Last but not least, don't forget your phone for emergencies and to take those all important party selfies!
