The sunglasses!

With festival fever only a flower away, sunglasses are essential. Getting the right sunglasses can be tricky. Large lens glasses may make your face smaller and your face more bug faced. Small glasses can make your nose look longer and your eyes to unproportioned. Luckily, the current trend (Above) will suit almost any face shape.

With thick frames and a blocked bridge, they give off the perfect festival feel. Primark will be releasing a cheap range of floral glasses, and Accessorize have been selling quality floral sunnys for £16.

Nails!

I’m stupid enough to just purchase some wintery shades, so make sure your stocking up on next seasons colour  – Candy Colours!
With shades like Mint Blue and Carousel Purple, they just feel like they sweeten up summer days. Revlon do purple shade for £6.49, or opt for something cheaper like Barry M’s Mint Ice Cream nail paint for just £2.99.

Make Up!

Yes, that right its time to get the bronzer out! With bronzers suddenly becoming girls best friend, its only fair that I post it in somewhere! When using bronzer make sure to lightly brush over the apples of yours cheeks and the bridge of your nose, giving yourself a healthy glow. Dont over do it though, looking like the cross between a wotsit and Edward Cullen is so unattractive and is 100% a pet hate.

My personal Favourite bronzer is by E.L.F, and costs only £2. Other popular bronzers include 17 Instant glow Bronzing Rocks, £4.99.

All Hail To Queen Shamballa!

Want the latest bracelet craze? Shamballa’s seem to be sweeping the nation, enticing buyers with their sparkly beads and eye-catching colours. They’re also very popular amongst celebrities, with the likes of Ameila Lily, Matt Smith and Justin Bieber all sporting the look, its only natural to want one or two. Or five.

The original platinum Shamballa braclet is VERY expensive, (I’ve seen some for £700) but luckly allloy ones have been produced,  and they’re only a fiver! There are loads of tantalising colours (above) but the most popular one in london is the light blue beaded one. You can also choose them by style. There’s the coloured sparkly ones, but also heavier black metal balls to add as well. Personally I prefer the glitter of the sparkly beads, but they are a little more expensive. (Roughly £2.59 for the one sparkly bead, £4 for the full bracelet.)

I got mine from a Ebay seller here. They shipped it quickly, I literaly got mine the next day :).

Dry Shampoo Anyone?


This morning I had peel myself from my bed with (Shock horror) greasy hair! I had no time to rush into the shower but, in the back of a draw was a can of Batiste Dry shampoo. I’ve got Clean & Classic, which was great. When I sprayed it into my roots, my hair looked white and ghost-like (freakout)! But as soon as you scruff up your hair and brush it back out, no one will know you faked that soft I-just-Came-Out-The-Shower look. Theres loads of different dry shampoos, Lee stafford is also quite good (if not a little bit pricey).

Heres all the Dry Shampoo’s avaliable from Batiste, £2.99 : Cherry, Spicy & Sentual, Wild, Clean & Classic, Coconut & Exotic Tropical, Dark & Deep Brown, Big & Bouncy XXL Volume, Light & Blonde and Floral & Flirty.

Pros:

  • Great for a bad hair day
  • Relitively cheap
  • Smells good
  • works well

Cons

  • Will only work for roughly 24 hours
  • Unless you brush it out, you may have a weird white mist over your hair
  • Not as good for your hair as the traditional shower
  • Coloured dry shampoos may look uneven
