ASOS Sale Picks

I was having a little browse the other night and had never realised that ASOS had a sale on. It's very rare that I don't find something I like on ASOS, there's such a wide range and there delivery and returns policy makes online shopping so much easier.

ASOS Sale Picks

Urbancode are not a brand I had heard of before but this bag really caught my eye. I love a suede bag and this looks so much more expensive. It's the perfect size for a couple of nights away, where taking a little suitcase is just too much. I've had this sitting in my basket for the last couple of days and I'm deliberating. I know for the size and quality, a hundred pounds is not a lot to pay but I'm meant to be saving. 

I bought this once before and sent it back. And that's a regret. I saw someone wearing this on Instagram and instantly knew I had to have it but it comes up quite big, I'd suggest sizing down 1-2 sizes depending on the fit you want. The back is cut out and it's perfect to throw on on holiday to wander round in or over the top of a bikini. 

I haven't tried any of the Nails Inc polishes since they changed the packaging and I'm on a no more nail polish ban until I actually use some up... has anyone else never ever finished a bottle? It's one of my friend's birthdays next month and this is right up her street, the box makes wrapping nightmares a thing of the past.

I never used to like Converse, for me they were too generic. That's until I picked up a copy of their classic white plimsolls and fell in love, they go with everything. I love the printed converses, they liven up a dull outfit.

I graduate next week and I still haven't picked the dress. I just don't know what I want to wear so I'm literally in a last minute ordering frenzy. I like the look of this dress, it's demure, long enough and I really like the V neckline detail at the back.

Have you picked anything up in the ASOS sale?

Magazine Freebies / August 2015

Everybody loves a freebie and there's nothing better than picking up your favourite magazine and getting a new product to try out with it!

Marie Claire: £3.99 - Choice from 6 Ciaté Nail Polish Sets including a colour and a top coat (Worth £10.00). 
Instyle: £3.99 - St Tropez In Shower Tanning Lotion (50ml worth £3.62)
Red Magazine: £4.00 - A Jessica Nail Polish in either Coral, Nude, Hot Pink or Red (Worth £10.50) 
Cosmopolitan: £4.99 - Choice of a New CID Black Mascara or Lipgloss
Elle: £4.00 - A Organic Pharmacy Skincare Set (Worth £13.00) containing Rose Facial Cleansing Balm, Antioxidant Lip Balm and Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream

I think I'll end up picking up Instyle as I've been wanting to try the St Tropez In Shower Tanning Lotion without splashing out the cash, if I like it I can go on to buy the full size version. Although I'm very tempted by Marie Claire, I'm on a mission to use up some of my nail polishes before buying anymore.... mind you, technically I'm not buying it. 

Which magazines will you be picking up this month?

Monthly Favourites / June

As if we're already in July! Where has the time gone? I started June by finishing my uni exams, and then followed that up with a trip to Bulgaria, coming back and finding out that I got the results I wanted! I'm now filling my time by working, volunteering at the local animal sanctuary (I want to take all the dogs home with me!) and I'm going through ice-cream like it's going out of style! Anyway down to business, here's my monthly roundup....

Soap & Glory Girlingo Body Moisturising Mist - £6.50
With the heatwave that has swept Britain, the last thing I want to do when stepping out of the shower is to slap on a thick body butter, I prefer something light that's going to sink in quickly. Girlingo has a lovely summery scent, that isn't overly sweet. Whilst I would look for a heavier more-intensive moisturiser in the winter, this is exactly the ticket during the summer months.

Fake Bake Amplify Daily Gradual Tan - £18.00
I'm slightly apprehensive when it comes to gradual tans, I find that they can go wrong pretty easily and I can end up looking like a streaky zebra. This product surprised me and I really love it. Besides giving you a natural glow, it works alongside your bodies own production of melanin helping to produce a natural tan, it also acts as a skin primer and helps to reduce the sight of all those bumps and lumps. The fragrance hit me the most, usually with fake tans, they have a particular biscuity aroma, this smells exactly like all the other Fake Bake products, a gorgeous fresh coconut scent.

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Coconut - £3.99
This was my nail colour of last summer and I've brought it out again this year. Coconut is a creamy off-white. I've made my love known for Barry M Gelly Hi Shine's known in the past and this one is no different.

Ultrasun Anti-Ageing Sun Cream for Sensitive Skin SPF30 - £20.00
Now I'm only 23 and hardly in need of anti-ageing skincare but I received a sample of this and loved it. I prefer to use a specific suncream rather than a body one for my face and this was the perfect size to pop into my hand luggage. I would put this on in the morning and one application was enough to last the day, I never burnt and was able to develop a bit of colour. An added bonus is it's skin friendly and doesn't give the white cast effect in photos.

What were your favourites during June?
