What's on my bedside table?

I've always had this thing where I need my bedside table to be neat and minimal. I hate the cluttered look, plus having it all neat just gives a dash of maturity. As you can see I've only got my essentials. Such as my books and a few products.

I've got a small selection of magazines and a book. I love reading my book before bed. It calms me down and I become relaxed and ready for bed. The magazines are there when I need something to do when having my cuppa tea. Plus I need a few ideas for some outfits for the cold early mornings to uni. 

Now for the products ...

Before bed I like to rehydrate my lips, eyes and hands. Carmex is my number one love for lips, apart from the Baby Lips. Then I hydrate my eyes with Simple's Soothing Eye Balm. This is the best eye cream that I have used. I usually get a flaky patch above my eye, but this has helped to clear it up. I've also got my Jergens Ultra Healing Body Cream, which I used for my hands to keep them soft, soft, soft. The smell reminds me of old people but I like it aha. 

What's on your bedside table?

NOTW - H&M's Nerd

With the autumn weather coming, you'd think I'd go for the tradition dark nails. But no no no, I went for the classic nude nails. It's hard finding that perfect nude nail for yourself. They are either too pale or too pink.  I've compared it to Barry M's Lychee (review) and I found that the H&M had a warmer tone to it, but it does lack the glossy-ness of the Barry M. This nude is so perfect. You can get this shade and many others for £2.99.

Don't you love magazine freebies? - October 2013

Another month, another freebie! This month I purchased the InStyle magazine as it was only £2. Plus it came with a few Ren Skincare products. I've always heard great reviews of Ren's skincare so of course I had to go buy it! This month's magazine comes with a Day Cream, Eye Gel and a Cleansing Milk. I always wanted to invest in a eye cream or gel, so this may be the perfect opportunity. 
Also, one of the magazine's articles it about Expert Beauty Tips, which is another reason why I bought this magazine. YAY. 

Also Marie Claire's freebie this month is a sample of their L'Occitane hand cream. There's 4 to collect, but I have my eyes on the Subtle Violet hand cream. Need to prepare my hands for the cold winter days.

Review - Maybelline Baby Lips

I know I haven't been blogging a lot, it's due to the start of my new course at university. So bear with me if I don't post for a while. Let's get back to the post ...


So I went to Superdrug guys. I know, it's a weakness. So yeah, I went to Superdug and got myself two more Baby Lips. YAY. They are the softest and smoothest lipbalm that I have ever used. I've been using the Intense Care for a while now and it's almost running out. I've noticed such a different in the softness of my lips when using the Intense Care. 

Cherry Me and Peach Kiss are the new additions to my life. Both are so moisturising and they both have slight tints to the lip. I don't know what else to say apart from them being so amazing! Get them now. You're missing out if you don't. Throw away the Vaseline and by yourself some Baby Lips.
