LETS TALK SWIMWEAR


ONLY 24 DAYS UNTIL MY HOLIDAY!! I seriously cannot wait! We've been counting down since like 145 days. (in case you couldn't tell, we're really excited!)

I like to be organised when it comes to packing for holiday, I hate leaving packing until last minute, I don't know how people do it! Far too stressful for my liking. 


I'm much more of a list making kinda gal, I like to plan what items of clothes I'm taking, what make up bits I want to take with me and how many bikini's I'll take. When doing just this - planning what bikini's I'll take with me - I thought I'd share them with you...

I brought the bikini above and the next three bikini set's from Tesco for my holiday to Tunisia. I haven't actually brought any swimwear this year! Maybe I should... although, it's that time of year where the bikini's in the shops are on a sale rail and it's hard to find a matching set and one in your size.
This next set is from Primark, it isn't actually a set but I think they match really well. I brought this set a few years ago when I went away to Magaluf with my friends. I'm so surprised that it still fits me actually but I really like it.
I really want to buy a swimming costume (is it cool to call them that?) but I have such a big bum compared to the rest of me that they just never fit properly. They either fit my bum but gaping at the top and I don't really want to show everyone my boobs when on holiday (when in England also of course) or they fit on top perfectly but become a bloody thong because they're so small on the bum. oh the struggles!
Do you have any advise or tricks when packing for a holiday?

WHAT'S IN MY MAKE UP BAG.

I've never done a "what's in my..." kind of post before. I like seeing what people keep in their handbags more so than their make up bags but no one wants to see the large amount of receipts and sweets wrappers that's filling my handbag up.

I am seriously obsessed with my make up bag. It's a pencil case from WHSmith that I couldn't resist buying and as I have no need for a pencil case, it seemed fitting to use it as a make up bag. It fits everything in perfectly and was a complete bargain as well, I think it was about £5.99 and for something that reminds me of princesses and unicorns how could I not?!

Mac Lipstick (in Twig)
Burt's Bees Lip Balm

This is my everyday make up, so pretty much what I wear to work everyday. As you can see it's very neutral and very minimal, I have an early start for work so I don't want to don't like like spending ages in front of the mirror doing my make up. No matter how early I get up, I still run around rushing to get ready.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIRCHBOX | SEPTEMBER 2015 BOX

First of all I would like to point out the fact that I am alive! I haven't fallen into a black hole never to be heard of again. I've been lacking inspiration lately and I refuse to blog about things just for the sake of it. 

Well, that all changed once I received this Birchbox. I am all for beauty boxes, I think they're a brilliant way to try out new products, brands that you love and brands that aren't on your radar.

September's box is a celebratory box in aid of Birchbox fifth birthday. To celebrate launching in the USA, Septembers box contains products and brands which originate from the USA. There's samples of Laura Mercier FacialPolishBliss Foot PatrolLaqa & Co Cheeky Lip PencilJohnMasters Organic Citrus Neroli DetanglerBenefit Licence To Blot and a Birchbrush.


Birchbox is just £12.95 each month which I think is an amazing price! For the products you get to try out I think the money is well worth it. What I also like is that you can create your own beauty profile, you answer some questions about your skin type and what kind of things you like so that your Birchbox can be tailored specifically for you!! If you're interested in signing up just click here.

Are there any box subscriptions your signed up for?
