I haven't done a payday wishlist in quite awhile and it's usually just because it's at the back of my mind, with more exciting posts taking precedence. I've decided however that it would be a good time to bring it back in a bid to inject just a touch more personality into my blog, in short, I want you to know me. Why follow the blog of an invisible person? I like the idea of my readers connecting with me and knowing what I like and dislike so that we can form a bit of a subconscious. Obviously I post a review from time to time and give a little peek into what I'm currently coveting, but I always like seeing what people are lusting after - It makes me want to know more and find out why they want them! So this month I am featuring the products that I have my eye on when payday comes around and maybe there will be something in there that will interest you too! If you have any of the above, let me know what you think of them in the comments below!
I've always wanted to whiten my teeth (or at least get rid of a few years worth of tea stains) I have just never gotten around to it and I've never really known what products would work for me. Furthermore, I've always held back due to concerns regarding the chemicals used for the whitening process and how it would effect my teeth and health. Luckily for me there has been huge demand this year for coconut oil, a substance with an array of health benefits and a natural aid to whitening your teeth. The process is known as oil pulling and requires you to swish some coconut oil around your mouth first thing in the morning to pull out any dirt and remove staining. However, it's a well known fact that coconut oil doesn't have a particularly nice taste and this is where Cocowhite comes in. They sell flavoured sachets of coconut oil, specifically for teeth whitening and a lot of people have been raving about them from bloggers to celebs. Though they are a little on the pricey side, I'm up for trying anything out to get some pearlier whites!
You've probably seen Bourjois Rouge Edition all over the blogosphere and in countless magazines, it's been a popular collection since it was launched at the beginning of the year and garnered quite the fanbase. I've done a little swatching on brief encounters in drugstores and supermarkets, but I've not yet purchased a shade and now I feel like the time is right. I'm a bit of a lipstick addict and whilst I love buying creamy sticks of pinks and reds, I'm always open to trying other lip products. Rouge Edition Velvet is quite simply a liquid lipstick that dries matte on the lips and when applied it looks neat and the colour highly pigmented. I've got my eye on the Frambourjois shade as it will be a nice pop of colour to add to my monochromatic autumn wardrobe.
I've already reviewed this item in my last blog post, so I won't bore you with the details all over again, but this is actually the top of my shopping list! I only have the sample size at the moment and it is fast running out, so to keep up with my skincare regime I'm going to need to get some more. Stat. There's not much I can say on the product that hasn't already been said, but I'm really coveting it at the moment, so I urge you to give it a try!.
Basically. I need a new hat. My current pom pom hat is old and looking a little on the tatty side and I'm over the dull grey shade of it. So now I've found this absolutely beautiful hat with the cutest little pom pom on top and I feel it will finally force me to throw out my tatty old one and proudly feature this gorgeous one on my head instead. That's all.
If you haven't smelt the sweet soft scent of Snow Fairy by Lush then you are seriously missing out! Not only does it smell all christmassy and strangely edible, it also makes your skin feel silky soft and refreshed. Lush have such a huge following and Snow Fairy has a fan base all on it's own as it is the essential bath product to see you through winter, the only time it's in production! If you fancy getting your hands on the candy scented product then get in there quick as it will only be around until the end of December and it's in high demand. I for one will be indulging in a big old bottle of the pink liquid next time I go shopping!
