My Travel Bag Essentials/ Products I can't live without: Skin Care

Hi Guys, hope you've had a wonderful day! Today I thought I'd share my everyday essentials that I take with me everywhere I stay. I work and stay in the city during the week to avoid a 2 hour daily commute so every Sunday I spend pampering and then packing my case for the week.
This isn't a true 'travel essentials' really as I don't scrimp with what I bring or pack light, just because I'm here more than at home so do go through quite alot and like to use nice things to keep me happy:-)
When I actually unpacked my bag I realise what a ridiculous amount of stuff I have so I will break this up into a few posts......
The 1st being Skincare,this post is my skincare routine as it does't change much when I'm at home. Hopefully soon I'll be organised enough to condense these products down into travel sizes to save luggage space!!
In the mornings I like to use the Neutrogena Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub. I feel this gets my face ready for my make-up really well and helps to maintain soft exfoliated skin. It's not at all harsh and it does wonders on my blackhead prone skin. Nice and cheap so I have one here and one at home.
I then give my face a quick spritz of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir of which I take my small bottle with me (I'm so peeved these diddy ones can't be refilled!) I'm not sure of what benefit this is to my skin but I love the smell and it really wakes me up in the morning and you know..... old habits die hard.
At the moment I'm using the Ole Henriksen truth serum collagen booster in place of a regular moisturiser. I think it fits the bill better as my super oily skin doesn't need to be moisturised twice a day and it gets my skin nice and smooth for make-up. I had no idea how pricey this was until now!! I got mine in a glossybox, can't yet report if it's worth that much!!
In the evenings I take my make off and clean with the No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser. Along with a muslin cloth it take off all my make up off like a dream and feels smoothing and luxurious- a lovely bedtime treat. It's doesn't come with a luxurious price tag that some more often mentioned hot cloth cleaners have and you get a whopping 200mls!! It's for all skin types and I highly recommend. You get one muslin cloth with it but I've tracked down a 10 pack really cheap here.
Every other night I apply Alpha H Liquid Gold. I love what my skin looks like the morning after I've applied this, glowing, clearer and smooth. I switch up my foundation for one with spf the day after as it can make your skin more sensitive to sun exposure.
I'm currently using Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream to give my skin a moisture boost at the end of a long day- rich and beautiful smelling and in a dinky 5ml tube so perfect for travelling. I pop Etat Pur Salicylic Acid on the odd blemish to clear it quicker.
Let me know if you want to know any more thoughts on the products mentioned and I'll let you know. I'll see you back here for my next travel essentials for haircare.
Much Love

Wednesday Wishlist #2: Dream Beauty Basket

So I didn't set out for it to be this way but this week all of my lust's are beauty products. Maybe it's because I've done quite well at buying a ridiculous amount of chunky jumpers, woolly tights and coats and feel like I'm ready to take on the harsh winter. 

A can never, however, have too many beauty products.....

My skin's been feeling extra congested recently and quite spotty. I've heard a lot about these two origins products and really want to try them. I'm quickly running low on my holy grail BB cream by Ginvera, desperately need to stock up!

My hair has also been quite lack-lustre recently. I want to try the serious conditioner after hearing Zoe from zoella on you tube talk about how good this product is and I was sold once she said it smelt of strawberries and cream. Another YouTube recommendation (haha I'm not impressionable at all!!) comes from Fleur de Force AND So totally vlog and it's for the perfect 10 detangler. A friend of mine also says it's amazing.

My Apple Cider Yankee Candle is nearly finished and I want to try a new rich scent, red velvet sounds right up my street. 

I'm completely obsessed with all lush products but have never before been interested in their gorilla perfumes. That's until I saw this new collection on their website and drew in a sharp breathe. Look how cute those bottles are!! I will definitely be hitting a lush store soon to give them a sniff. I particularly like the look of the little Euphoria bottle at the front.

Hope your having a wonderful Wednesday!

What are your Wednesday Wishes??

Tuesday Teaching's #2: Beliefs vs Behaviour

Hey Guys. This is my shared quote this week. I'm a firm believer in this. I've met a few too many people who look down on other's because they can recite any page in the Bible or Quran. It's a beautiful thing to be committed to a religion in this way but your actions in life and towards others I think speak volumes more than what you know or don't know.

 In my opinion belief or 'faith' is the foundation of your being but it's your behavior that is the brickwork or structure and that's the part that everyone going to see!

"Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does."

Do you have any quotes you try to live by? I'd love to hear them.

Hope your having a great Tuesday!!

Nailed It: Essie Foot Loose- Autumnal with a pinch of Excitement

Just a really quick post to share a new Essie polish that I've just applied and am really excited about wearing.  It's a given to say that I've been into my autumn polish colours recently. Dark reds/burgandys, blacks and even a touch of nude have all my floating my nail varnish boat recently. The only thing was, at the transitional age of 23 (you know when your not quite a teen but not quite a proper adult yet) it was all getting a bit to 'grown up' and dare I say boring?? for me. You might think I'm 'getting in too deep' with my nail polish but I've really missed showing my fun, young and girly side in the summer through my nails but now I think I have found the solution..... Low and behold Essie's Foot Loose. 

It's showing a lot more pink in the picture (sorry guys having issues with my REAL camera). In real life it's more of a purply pink so really fun and a real POP of colour but it's also quite dark (I'd say around three steps away from being vampy) so is definately a good winter colour but with a slight hint of immaturity.... Just the way I like it :-) 

Hope you've had a great day. Thanks for reading.
