Lifestyle | Four Things I Couldn't Live Without



Hii Lovelies, I almost captioned this post 'what's in my bag' but then I realised that my bag is 95% receipts and hair grips so... I can't see that making for a nice piece of photography can you?

So this is essentially a 'what's in my bag under the mountain of receipts' post as when I had a good look through I came to realise that on a day to day basis I am surprisingly low maintenance! Shocker!


Tangle Teezer. 

WHAT did I ever do before these? I've owned numerous Tangle Teezer's now over the years and whole heartedly refuse to use another brush. Years of bleaching my hair platinum when I was 15 has made my scalp, to this day so sensitive and the thought of trying to tug a normal brush through my hair, or god forbid A COMB makes me want to peel my own skin off like a snake (okay that's too far and slightly gross but you get the severity of the scalp situation right?!). If you don't own one of these, where have you been!!?? They glide through your hair from root to end and tackle even the biggest of tangles with absolute ease and dreaminess. I heard that these first appeared on Dragon's Den years ago and got turned down! Ludicrous!!

Lip Balm/Gloss. 

I'm saying this as a general category as I have about nine in my bag at all times. The Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight Lip Therapy is the one I reach for most mornings as it is great at prepping your lips for the day. Dry lips will be the death of me, I hate them and this weather is forever challenging me, but this little pot of goodness usually does the trick. For colour I have been loving the Rimmel London Kate Moss Nude Lipstick in the shade 54 or Mac x Ellie Goulding Without Your Love. Contrary to every other Matte Lipped Beauty Blogger out there Glossy Lips are my fave always.

So I legit couldn't last like 5 minutes without my phone. My day consists of  the Instagram Explore Page and daft Facebook videos and I wouldn't have it any other way. Yea sure I could definitely do with a few days off a month where I switch it off and leave it alone, but it makes me feel connected. I'll forever be thankful that we can easily get in touch with people all over the world 24/7 and blogging has allowed me to connect with so many lovely people. Simple things like nice Instagram comments make my day you lovely people! Sad I know but it's the little things.

Sunglasses

It's official i've gone sunglasses mad. Since when did they become an obsession of mine and why can I not stop buying and wearing them. Summer is approaching and all that, so sunglasses are slowly becoming something that we need to hand and I forever have a pair in my bag and a pair in my car. Ebay is my go to for sunglasses because A) This girl loves a bargain  and B) They always have great dupes for designer pairs. I recently got two pairs of the Dior 'So Real' Style Sunglasses from Ebay in Silver and Rose Gold and they are my absolute faaaaaves that feature weekly on my Instagram.

  4. First of all I just want to say I love the first shot! I spent like a half an hour yesterday trying to style one of those "stuff spontaneously popping out of bag" flatlays and it did not work out for me lol. I looove my tangle teezer too! It's so gentle and great at softly undoing knots. Also count me in as another millennial who is glued to her phone ;)

  5. I really should carry my brush around with me, I always end up having such knotty hair by the end of the day lol! That's cool knowing that they went on Dragon's Den though. I bet they're kicking themselves for turning it down now. I'm also the same with my phone, I can't be separated with it at all!! Your sunglasses are gorgeous, I need these. The rose gold ones sound amazing, as I'm so obsessed with that colour - as is everyone lol.:D

  15. Yup...accidentally left my phone a couple of times and it was hideous. Didn't know what to do with myself. But personally it's worse when I am out and haven't got a lip balm to hand! Aargh! I love my tangle teezer too but recently started using The Wet Brush on my daughters and might have to get one for myself too ;) xxx
