HEMA Beauty Haul

I recently discovered a new shop called HEMA which sells lots of gorgeous homeware items, kids items, stationery and more importantly beauty items. I got a few things and I wanted to share them with you because I've been really loving them and also they're super affordable which is always a bonus.

The first thing I got was hand cream, I'm addicted to hand cream and I have tubes of it everywhere, in my house, in the car, in my handbag, everywhere! I hate, hate, hate having dry hands and because I have kids I'm always washing my hands or cleaning and they get so dry and rough it's awful so I get through a ton of hand cream. I love this one though because it smells great, keeps my hands super soft and lasts for ages on my skin.

The next thing I got were the eyelash curlers, now I've been a Shu Uemura eyelash curler fan for years and years and I wouldn't consider any other brand but recently I felt like a change and decided to give the HEMA ones a try and they are amazing! I absolutely love them and will definitely be re-purchasing when they wear out, they give my lashes a good curl without pinching my skin or trapping my lashes plus they were really cheap at just £3.

I've been using the Benefit High Beam highlighter for as long as I can remember and it recently ran out, it's pretty pricey and I just couldn't justify buying a new one so I wanted to try a cheaper alternative which is why I picked up the HEMA highlighter pen and I love it. It's really easy to use and the brush tip makes it super quick and mess free to apply, it gives a really pretty sheen to my cheekbones and brow bone and I'm really happy with it.

Lastly I picked up some body lotion because I needed some and it was only £3, it smells great and leaves my skin feeling really smooth and hydrated. I've been using it every day and I really like how it feels on my skin, I'll definitely buy it again.

If you're on the look out for some affordable but great quality beauty items then I really recommend giving HEMA a try, I'm a big fan.

I'm always ordering from ASOS so this website has been brilliant for me, I've got some great deals on clothes and also used codes to get free shipping which is always handy to have. I also have a secret link which allows you access to their half price or less deals which is refreshed every 3 hours to make sure you don't miss out on a bargain, click here to take a look.

March Favourites

I've had quite a few items I've been loving this month so I thought it would be good to write a favourites post and share them all with you.

My first favourite is the Wilkinson Sword Intuition Razor, being a busy working mum I just don't have time to spend hours in the bathroom pampering myself so anything that saves me time is a bonus. The Intuition Razor is brilliant, just add water and it foams up meaning no need for faffing around with shaving foam, you can just go straight ahead and shave your legs and it literally takes 2 minutes. Plus it comes with a handy little shower holder so you can have it on hand every time you shower without having to remember to take it in with you.

After eating what feels like twice my body weight in chocolate throughout March I've been looking for something a little more healthy to snack on and also something that the kids would enjoy. We decided to give the Go Ahead snacks a try and they've been a big hit in our house the past week or so. 

I love to snack on the Crispy Slices, especially the Radiant Raspberry flavour, they're perfect for a mid-morning treat and they only contain 57 calories per slice. The kids love the Cookie Bites and have been asking for them at snack time every day this week, they're low in sugar and less than 100 calories per pack so I don't feel bad about letting the kids have them.

There are lots of different Go Ahead snacks to try and I've yet to try one that I don't like so if you're looking for a healthy snack then give them a go.

You may have seen on my social media accounts that I've recently opened an Etsy shop called My Pretty Summer where I sell super cute stationery items and my own handmade dashboards for planners. To enable me to make the planner dashboards I needed a new printer and I got a brilliant one at a bargain price from Love the Sales

If you check out their Printer sale section you'll find all of the printers that are currently on sale in all of the biggest UK retailers all in one place so instead of trawling around loads of different websites checking prices you can just have them all together and make sure you get the best deal that's out there. Love the Sales have all kinds of items on their website including clothes, homeware, beauty products and sports equipment so if you're looking for a bargain go and check them out.

My last favourite are the super yummy Simplee Aloe drinks, aloe is really good for you, it's great for your skin, detoxing and keeps your immune system healthy and I'm all about anything that has that many benefits. Aside from the fact that they're super good for you they also taste amazing, they're really fruity and refreshing and they contain no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.

They come in two different sizes, 1 litre and 330ml and are the perfect drinks for Spring/Summer when you want something healthy and refreshing. You can find them in Asda, Holland & Barrett, Waitrose and Sainsburys.

So that's everything I've been loving in March, what are your favourites for the past month?
