The Body Shop Purchase

Following my new look purchase here, recently I've been on a small shopping spree which consisted of 4 main purchases; shoes which I've already documented, hair and body (which is this post), clothes, and books.

First of all let me start by saying that I LOVE the body shop products, they have lovely delicious scents, good quality and they are fair trade!

Unlike my usual body shop purchase which consists of body and make up products, this time I bought some of their hair range and facial stuff as well.

The first item I bought is a make up bag, which is a limited edition product by the London college of art and fashion along with a nail buffer from the same range.

After reading some reviews on the camomile cleansing oil I decided to try it myself. I love cleansing balms, mostly the Emma Hardie and Clinique take the day of balm, which I reviewed here and here however during summer seasons these balms turn into oil which defeat the balmy texture of such products, therefore I decided to try a cleansing oil instead for the hot seasons. I have used this product a couple of times so far and I like the texture and it dissolves makeup really easily, however I haven't used it enough to give a full review on it. 

Another purchase is the Vitamin E SPF15 lip balm which I love, however I would have preferred it if it had the same scent as the moisturiser in the same range. I also purchased the almond hand and nail cream which I love, this is actually a re purchase and I love the scent and texture of this product, it really nice lightly sweet and fresh sort of almondy / honey scent.

I have purchased some hair stuff from the body shop as well, I never tried any of their hair care items before, and I have only tried them a couple of times so far, but I must admit I am quite impressed with the Ginger Anti Dandruff Shampoo. In addition to this shampoo I have also purchase the Rainforest Moisture Shampoo (in travel size), Rainforest Moisture Conditioner, and Grapeseed hair serum.

I have also purchased a shaving cream and a deodorant from the Men Range (which is obviously intended as a gift :))

I am quite happy with my purchase and I have tried to film a quick video of my products display (as you can see above) for better viewing :)

Do you have any body shop products suggestions? please let me know :)

Until next time...

New Look - Shoe Purchase

I haven't blogged in quite some time, as I was very busy lately and I haven't bought anything in quite some time. But today it was time to go shopping and stock up on some essentials for the new season.

My first purchase was from new look and I got 2 pairs of shoes, the first one is a nude patent wedge which feels really comfortable and I think is a staple for a spring summer wardrobe (a nice change from the black and dark brown boots I've been wearing all winter) and I think that this would go with almost anything.
The next pair of shoes is a red court shoe and I am really excited about this as I've never owned a red shoes before and I think they are quite "glamorous" and would add a touch of elegance to any outfit. The heel isn't very high nor very low, in my opinion this has the best heel size for my feet. Recently I've really been into navy and white combo and I think a red shoe would go perfectly with such outfit. Not sure what colour handbag would go with it though, should I invest in a red handbag or does a black hand bag go with a red shoe?

Instead of posting photos I thought I would do a very small video to get all angles of the shoes in. Please excuse the quality of the video as this is my first time and am not very steady with the camera and don't own a high quality camera either.

Don't want to have a really long post, so I will be posting my other purchases in separate posts soon!

Until then... :)
